The University of Lethbridge Chinook's chances of sweeping four Western Canada Inter-Col- legiate Women's Basketball League home games were crushed last night as the U of S Huskiettes from Saskatoon bounced the local club 74-54. On the weekend the Chinooks upended the U of S Cougar- ettes of Regina twice and were hoping to make it row, but failed to do so as a handful of spectators at the Civic Sports Centre watched a smooth flowing Huskiette club. At half-time the Chinooks trailed 35-28 and it looked as though the two weekend games had taken their toll. After a brief rest both clubs started the second half a little rusty missing fine opportuni- ties and letting the ball go astray. As the rust wore away the two clubs started playing the fast and exciting brand of ball they displayed in the first half. With six minutes remaining in the contest the Huskiettes maintained a sum six point lead as the Chinooks tried vali- antly to catch the visitors. Suddenly, the roof fell in on the Chinooks. Before they knew it they were trailing the Huski- ettes by 16 big points. That was all for the Chinooks. Heather Witzel was brilliant for the Huskiettes as she swished 27 points while team- mates Val Girsberger and Sher- ril Roberts hooped 16 and 15 points respectively. All three girls are remark- able out-side shooters as they seldom missed shots from 20 feet out. For the Chinooks Minnie Van Dieren played a steady game as she netted 14 poults. Leona Voth was next in Ime as she sunk 13 and Linda Voth also added to the total with 10. Both these clubs will hit the floor again tonight at the Civic Sports Centre starting at 8 p.m. In men's action the University of Manitoba Bisons tasted re- venge Monday night with a 100-76 win over University of Alberta Golden Bears. Bisons stretched their win: ning streak to 14 games with the victory over the Golden Bears, the only team that has beaten the University of Mani- toba crew this season. Angus Burr led the Bisons with 29 points. In another game, University of Winnipeg Wesmen strength- ened their hold on fourth place with a 87-56 win over Univer- sity of Lethbridge Chinooks. University of British Columbia Thunderbirds are second, be- hind Bisons, and the Golden Bears are third in ihe 10-team league. Wesmen, who led 43-29 half time, were paced by Bar- ry King with 23 points and Bob Allan with 14, while Leth- bridge's leading scorer was Tun ToUestrup, who netted 26. In the Bisons-Golden Bears game, Ross Wedlake got 19 points and Bob Town 16 for Bisons, who held a 46-34 lead Frig chosen on first team CALGARY (CP) Netmind- er Ed Dyck of Calgary Cen- tennials fell only one vote short of being a unanimous choice for the first all star team of the Western Canada Hockey League.
