Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Locals grab share of top spot ronghorns force over By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "It had to happen sooner or later." University o� Leth bridge Pronghoms threw up their arms, clicked their heels and yelled "whoopee" as they defeated the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds 86-64 in Canada West University Men's Basketball League play Friday night. It was a sweet victory for the Pronghoms, who not only dropped the visiting Thunder-birds for the first time in their five-year history, but also managed to slip into a first place tie with the idle University of Alberta Golden Bears. The Pronghoms now sport a 11-4 record while the Golden Bears, who see action Saturday and S u n d a y in Calgary, are 11-3. Iii last night's encounter, the Pronghoms were determined to keep their pennant hopes alive as they performed brilliantly before a large crowd at the U of L gymnasium. The Pronghoms picked off the opening toss-up and from then on it was obvious which ball club was the hungriest for a victory. After eight minutes of play in the opening half, the Prong-horns held an insurmountable 16-6 lead which they never relinquished. By half-time ttoey extended the gap to 38-23 and more or less waited until the final buzzer sounded. Phil Tollestrup was at his best once again, leading the Pronghorn's offensive attack with 37 big points. He hooped 16 out of 37 field goal attempts and pumped in five of six free throw shots. Tollestrup didn't have to do all the work himself though as the Pronghoms received a 12-point outing from Dan Court and 10-point performances from Clark Sloan and Max Zaugg. Larry Baker also shone for the Pronghoms although he didn't do too much in the scoring column. Baker led the Pronghoms in the rebounding department as he nailed down nine of the 38 loose balls. On the other hand, the Thun-derbird's scoring was evenly spread. Rod Matheson notched 14 points to his teammates while Jack Hoy and John Mills added 13 points apiece. Darryl Gjernes also managed 11 points for the Thunderbirds, who shot 35 per cent from the outside, and 69 per cent from the foul line. The Pronghoms came up with a 41 per cent field goal average and a 75 per cent free throw average. Meanwhile the U of L Pronghoms varsity women's basketball team didn't fare as well and suffered a 73-35 waxing by the UBC Thiuiderettes. Liz Silcott netted 19 points to lead the visitors while Wendy Grant added 14. Joanne Sargent and Debbie Phelan also aided in the win with 10 points apiece. Leona Voth paced the Prong- Kodiaks keep rolli Williams hits for 3 A 30-point performance by Gary Williams was just about all the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks needed to keep their unbeaten string alive. Kodiaks, winners of seven straight Alberta College Athletic Conference Basketball League games, bounced Northern Alberta Institute of Technology 80-42 Fi-iday evening. Meanwhile, in women's action, the Kodiettes made it a clean sweep with a convincing 59-35 win over the gals from NAIT. The Kodiaks and Kodiettes were to meet Camrose Lutheran College this afternoon in conference action. Williams hooped 12 points in the first half as the locals de- cided the issue early. When the two clubs headed for the shower at half time the visitors from the Capital trailed 44-14. Curt Wolsey continued his steady play for the Kodiaks as he came up with 13 points while Dwight White and Bruce Millis each added nine. Every Ko-diak on Tom Karren's roster hit the scoresheet last evening. John Jenner paced NAIT with a dozen points. Don McEarch-em chalked up 10. Three Kodiettes each came up with 10 points. Nancy Kin-near, Lavern Saunders and Judy McNab all hit in double figures. Brenda Brown put on a one-gal show for the Edmonton club as she hooped 17 points. Kodiaks have all but wrapped up the conference title but still have to meet Mount Royal College and Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. The locals host these two clubs next Friday and Saturday respectively. The only concern coach Kar-ren has at present is keeping fc'.s club up for conference games. The defending Canada 4-West champions have been tested only slightly in the ACAC and Karren may be showing signs of worry. Kodiaks should repeat as Alberta champions but could find trouble in inter-provincial play on the trail that may lead, this year, to a dominion title.

Saturday, February 3, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ �3 ANDY CA?P NBA patsies give Detroit a victory By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Playing Philadelphia '76ers is a picnic for the rest of the National Basketball Association teams. The latest to get a little fatter off the young Philadelphians are Detroit Pistons. "I'm just glad nobody got hurt," said Detroit coach Ray Scott after Friday night's 114-104 victory over the '76ers. "Everybody got to play and we just got to look at a lot of guys we needed to look at." That's the way it's been going this year for the '76ers. Nobody takes them seriously. Friday night's loss was Philadelphia's 14th straight and the '76ers have won only four games in 56 decisions this year. In the other games, Baltimore Bullets turned back New York Knicks 89-77, Atlanta Hawks nipped Boston Celtics 100-99, Milwaukee Bucks bounced Buffalo Braves 114-104, Los Angeles Lakers drubbed Houston Rockv ets 126-109 and Seattle Super-Sonics stopped the Chicago Bulls 118-104.
