Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Mmivy 7, THE LETHtftiooc HERALD West could be through LOS ANGELES (AP) Jerry West's latest injury could end the basketball career of the superstar from Cabin Creek, W. Va. The 35-year-old veteran of 14 National Basketball Association seasons, was hurt Tuesday night in Houston. After flying back to Los Angeles, he was examined by Dr. Robert Kerlan and the Lakers announced he had "aggravated an abdominal and groin muscle strain and would be lost to the club indefinitely." West will undergo daily treatment but there was no estimate when he might be able to play if he decided to return to action. West returned to the Laker lineup less than three weeks ago after being out with the original injury. Originally, it had been expected he would retire at the end of the season The latest injury could bring the retirement earlier The injury was to the left side of the groin and West commented. "I really did it this time "When I first came back, I was afraid this would happen and I was very cautious not to do the things that could lead to this." Coach Bill Sharman said the possibilities do not look good for West's return to the lineup this year, even for the playoffs "It will be up to Jerry and the doctor, but it looks worse now than it ever the coach admitted "Right now, I'd say it is doubtful that he'U be back."

Turnbull, who starred last season for Ottawa '67s of the Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series and was Toronto's No. 3 pick in the 1973 amateur draft, gave the Leafs a 2-1 lead at of the final period. He picked up a loose puck near centre and went around defenceman Brent Hughes before firing a 30-footer past Jim Rutherford. Turnbull, however, didn't have a perfect game. He was caught up the ice when Jarry and Hogaboam combined for the tying goal It was Jarry's llth of the season. Rutherford was outstanding, particularly in the first two periods when he faced 34 shots. He had 44 saves over-all. Jude Drouin's goal with three minutes and 14 seconds remaining gave the North Stars their victory. Minnesota trailed 3-1 after the first period when Pete MahovUch scored twice for Montreal and Yvan Cournoyer once.

Williams 8 MAN. CHEST OUT, SHOUOEftf SACK (TCW.'ICM.'TCH.7) V NO MATTER WHAT HEAD OP THE HOUSE.' IT'S A BIT DIFFICULT 10 STAND ON WON'T IJET -ou PfETJ By THE CANADIAN PRESS Centre Red Berenson was suspicious Wednesday after Ned Harkness resigned Wednesday as general manager of Detroit Red Wings. "It may be the same kind of resignation Ted Garvin made as said Berenson, past president of the National Hockey League Players' Association. Garvin was fired by the Wings in November and re- placed by Alex Delvecchio. For Ken Schinkel, coach of Pittsburgh Penguins, the situ- ation was clear. He was fired Wednesday and replaced by Marc Boileau, coach of Fort Wayne Comets of the Inter- national Hockey League. "The time just wasn't right for Ken said general manager Jack Button, who said Schinkel has been offered an unnamed job in the organization. Button, incidentally, replaced Jack Riley who was fired Jan. 14 by owner Tad Potter. "Ned came with us to Toronto Tuesday night to watch the said Berenson. "Is that any way for a man to behave if he's planning his resignation? "You would think that a fel- low would plan something like a resignation a week ahead or so." Guy Charron, one of many players the Wings obtained in trades in the last few years, said: "We're so far out of it now, all we can hope is we get to- gether and play well We can skate with anyone but once things get tough we've got nobody to stand up." "Sure I'm said Delvecchio, whose team tied Toronto Maple Leafs 2-2 Wednesday night. "I was talk- ing to Ned this morning and there was no mention made of his resignation." Bruce Norris, owner of the Kodiaks must win important tilt The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks are hoping to win a pair of Alberta College Athletic Conference Men's Basketball League games over the weekend, but one in particular. The Kodiaks will entertain the two Calgary entries in the eight-team conference with Mount Royal College Cougars being their opponents Friday night and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Trojans Saturday afternoon at the LCC gym. Friday night's encounter could possibly be the most important match of the 1973- 74 season for the Kodiaks, who trail the first place Cougars by a mere victory. The Cougars currently sport a 7-0 record while the Kodiaks, who have come on strong of late with the addition of four new faces, hold a 6-1 record. The Kodiaks, who suffered their only loss to the Cougars earjier in the season, are in desperate need of a win over the Cougars in order to keep alive their hopes of hosting the Alberta college finals Mar. 1-2. The Alberta champs will then advance to the 4- West College championship finals to be staged Mar. in Winnipeg. There's another catch to Friday night's tilt which makes it so special for the Kodiaks. In their initial meeting the Cougars scored a three-point victory over the Kodiaks which now forces the locals to win their match by four or more points. This is a must just in case the two clubs finish the season tied for first place with identical records. The points for and against method will then be implemented to break the deadlock. The Kodiaks, who are without injuries, take on the Cougars at eight o'clock. Saturday's match against toe SATT Trojans is scheduled for a three o'clock start at the LCC gym. Meanwhile the LCC Kodiettes will also see action twice this weekend in Alberta College Athletic Conference Girls' Basketball League play. The Kodiettes will face Mount Royal Friday night at six and SAIT at one Saturday afternoon On the other side of the Old-nan River four university basketball teams will hit the University of Lethbridge's gymnasium court twice this weekend. The U of L Pronghorns men's and women's varsity hoop teams will host the University of Alberta Golden Bears and Pandas in Canada West University Men's and Women's Basketball League competition. Friday night the Prongborns and Pandas open their weekend series at and win be followed by the Pronghorns and Golden Bears at The four clnbs will meet again Saturday night at the same time and location Meanwhile the Kodiaks extended their winning streak to five games by blasting the Medicine Hat Antelope 120-27 in the gas City Wednesday night. The Kodiaks now sport seven wins and a loss which leaves them only six victories away from the ACACMBL pennant title. In last night's match, the Antelope were never really in the game as they trailed the locals 62-16 at halftone. Seven locals hit the double figures in the lop-sided win and were paced by Brent Fairbanks' 24-point performance. Teammates Greg Hess and Gary Willams chipped in with 21 and 20 points respectively. The Kodiaks scored 55 of their 129 attempts from the field for a 43 per cent average and shot 55 per cent from the foul line. The LCC Kodiettes had a harder time than their male counterparts as they dropped a one-sided 72-26 decision to the Medicine Hat gals. Shirley Yuill hooped 16 of the Kodiettes 26 points.

However, the continued criticism by the media, the greater part of which I find unfair, has rnade it impossible for Ned to continue." In announcing his decision, Harkness cited "almost daily pressures and harassment from the news media." Harkness, 51, who had a brilliant collegiate coaching career before joining the Wings, said: "I owe my first consideration to my wife, who has been ill, and my own well- being." Jimmy Skinner, assistant general manager, has been given the position temporarily until' a successor has been named Ted Lindsay, former Detroit star, and Delvecchio have been mentioned as possible candidates. Harkness has been under al- most constant bombardment from the news media since he joined Dot: on organization in 1970 A Detroit television station ran an editorial before Harkness's announce- for him to re en because it said, the Wings were making Detroit look bad. The Wi 'MS are sixth in the East Division, well out of a playoff berth Harkness joined the Wings as coach after a 26-year college career. At Detroit he replaced Sid Abel, who devoted full-time to his role as general manager. Midway through the season, Abel resigned, Doug Barkley became coach, and Harkness became general manager. Since then he has traded nearly every player in his effort to make Detroit a contender. Skate Exchange Sharpened Shined New Laces Sanitized C.C.M.
