Attendance at basketball games however, are ex- pected to reach new highs during the Canada Winter Games as basketball will be played at Cardston, Magrath, Picture Butte, Raymond and at the Lethbridge Sportsplex and the U of L. Southern Alberta has sported some of the best teams and players in the sport for a number of years, and during the late 1950s and early 1980s was the home of the Southern Alberta, later Broder, Chinooks, three time Cana- dian champions in the senior men's division. After the Chinooks broke up there was a lack of good basketball, except on the high school level, and the kids continue to attract capacity crowds to their high school games throughout the area. The high school basket- bailer of today in this area will be heard of in the future. Players like Perry Mirkovich, Mark Sheen, Rod Beazer, or Don Yuill to mention just a few may well find basketball fans of the 1980s remembering their talents as fans today recall those abilities of men like Jack Lilja, the West brothers, Ty Alston or Wes Rice. When the University of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge Community College came into being, Southern Alberta basket- ball fans then had basket- ball teams to follow after their favorite players left high school. The U of L Pronghorns offered such great names as Phil and Tim Tollestrup to please basketball fans of his area. The U of L squad came within a whisker of winn- ing their league cham- pionship in the tough un- iversity league, and fans packed the gym to watch Phil Tollestrup in action. The people of this area are used to class basket- ball, and for the first time they will have the oppor- tunity to watch first hand as 10 provinces' and two territories battle it put for a Canadian championship right in their own home towns. 9 a.m.-Picture Butte-OnUrio vs. Man.-118 11 a.m.-Sportsplei-Alberta vs. N.W.T.-U3 11 a.m.-Pictwe Butte-B.C. vs. I n m Sask- vs. 113 6 p.m.-Sportsplex-Semi Finals-114 10 p.m.-Sportsplex-Semi Finils-114 Butte-Semi Fmafc-144 4 4 p.m.- 4 P.m.-Raymond-Seroi 4 11 p.m. .-Sportsplex-Closiiig ceremonies WOMEN'S BASKETBALL Wedmdiy.
