Both teams won the right to repre- sent this province by competing in a tournament held in Lethbridge in December of. 1974 and both teams reached the championship by defeating Lethbridge teams. The Pandas upended the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns girl's team and Mount Royal defeated Doug's of Lethbridge. Basketball during the Games will be played at six different venues in five different Southern Alberta centres. Cardston High School, Picture Butte High School, Magrath High School, Raymond High School, the University of Lethbridge and the Sportsplex will be the sites of the games. They will commence Wednesday and run through to Monday, Feb. 17. The schedule shows the Alberta teams playifig the following teams on the accompanying times and dates: The Pandas play Manitoba at Raymond, Feb. 12 at 9 p.m.; New Brunswick, Feb. 13 at 9 p.m. in the Sportsplex; Newfoundland, Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. at the U of L; Ontario, 2 p.m. Feb. 15 at Picture Butte; North West Territories, at 11 a.m. Feb. 16 at Raymond; the final games will be played Monday, Feb. 17 if the Pandas make the finals. The Cougars play Saskatchewan at 9 p.m. at the U of L, Feb. 12; Nova Scotia at 9 p.m. Feb. 13 in Magrath; Prince Edward Island, 7 p.m. at Picture Butte, Feb. 14; Quebec at 2 p.m., Feb. 15 at Cardston; North West Territories, at the Sportsplex Feb. 16 at 11 a.m.; the finals run all through Monday, Feb. 17. The U of A Pandas showed plenty of speed and hustle in winning the right to represent Canada during the tourna- ment at the U of L. Currently standing fourth in their league the Pandas are led by Amanda Holloway who is consistently their top point getter. Kathy Moore and Charlotte Shymr also add a great deal to the Panda at- tack and combined with Holloway they make a potent scoring trio. The Pandas have the ability to hit with long shots and their defensive game is strong enough to give any club they come up against more than their share of problems. The remainder of the Panda team is made up of Dianne Chisholm, Jennifer Cooper, Val Kallis, Deena Mitchel, Nicole Robert, Norah Triska, and Nora Way. The coach is Debbie Shogan. Men's coach Jack Kenyon looks for the Quebec team to be the toughest in Division A, where the Alberta team will play, but he also sees British Columbia and Ontario as definite threats to win the Gold Medal. "We open against the Mount Royal coach stated, "and I don't really know how strong they are. Judging from past performances over th- last 10 years though, I would guess th. will not be too strong." The B.C. and Quebec teams are provincial All Star squads, but Kenyon doesn't know the makeup of many of the other teams. He feeU that Alberta would have been wise to select an All Star squad to compete in the Games. "It would mean taking the best boys from college, university and even high school ranks throughout the province. "It would also mean practicing together for some time which would mean that the players would not be available to play on their own teams. That would be where the problem is. It comes down'to a matter of priorities. What would mean more for the school, having a boy or girl playing on an Alberta team, or having that boy or girl playing at your ;
