On the other hand, the Pronghorns' offensive attack was superb as they managed a 44 per cent average from the outside and 42 per cent outing from the foul line. Phil Tollestrup stowed the Bears' fans how good he really is as he led the Pronghorns with 27 points with a 48 per cent shooting average. Teammates Clark Sloan, Doug Kempt and Dan Court aided the cause with 12, nine and eight points respectively. owdown EDMONTON (Special 1-"It's all or nothing." The Canada We** Umwrsity Men's Basket-' W.'i l.osiruo. championship title j s"ii 'coils Awn to t.ho final game I c: the season sched- ule. Friday nurhi. the University of Lothbridgo I'roiuihorns, who faced a door-die situation, defeated the University of Alberta Golden Bears 6-1-55 before 4,000 or more fans who squeezed into the isles at the U of A gymnasium. It was a must victory for the Pronghorns, who still need another win over the host Golden Bears. The Pronghorns sport a 14-5 record while the Golden Bears are 15-4. If the Pronghorns should happen to defeat the Bears again tonight, they would both finish' the season with 15-5 records. But the important thing is, the Pronghorns would capture the conference title due to their better won-loss record against the Bears. Thus far this season, the Pronghorns have upended the Bears twice while losing once. In last night's encounter, the Pronghorns came- up with' am over-powering defensive game and a superb offensive performance, which according to coach Gary Bowie, was nothing short of being outstanding. "The boys played really well and caught the Bears napping," commented Bowie. "And-1 don't think they realized we had the potential to play that well either," he said. "I'd have to say that our defence won the ball game for us last night, but I'd also have to admit that our offensive unit kept us in the game at tunes,'' he added. Bowie wasn't far from the truth as the Pronghorns came up with a stone-walled defensive game last night. During the 40 minutes of play, the Pronghorns continually forced the Bears into poor shooting positions. The end result showed the Bears with a mere 29 per cent Mike Frisby was the top scorer for the Bears with 19 points while Steve Panteluk and Wallace Tollestrup hooped 13 points apiece. In the rebounding department, the Pronghorns nailed down 10 offensive and 34 defensive rebounds while the Bears managed to scrape-up 17 offensive and 26 defensive loose balls off the backboards. Meanwhile the U of L Pronghorns women's basketball team earned a hard-fought 49-48 victory over the U of A Pandas in women's league play last night. The Pronghorns had only five* players for the entire game due to a minor thumb injury to Sharon Giduk which occurred in the warm-ups. Giduk is expected to dress tonight to complete the six-man squad. In last night's match, Leona Voth is well on her way to the CWUWBL scoring title as she led the Pronghorns with an outstanding 27-point outing. In another women's league game, the University of Victoria Vikettes crushed the University of Calgary Dinnies 65-33. Both clubs earn victories The LCI Rams and Magrath Zeniths are still deadlocked in first place in the Southern Alberta "A" Boys' Basketball League as they picked up victories Friday night. The Rams dropped the Cardston Cougars 64-50 while the Zeniths defeated the Raymond Comets 79-71 in overtime. Both clubs now sport 7-2 records in first place while the idle Catholic Central Cougars sit in second with a 6-2 record. Raymond holds down third spot with a 4-5 record while Cardston rests in the league-cellar with three wins in nine starts. At the LCI gymnasium last night, the Rams picked up a lead after the first eight minutes of play and never looked back. They extended the margin to 38-20 by halftime and managed to hold on to a 50-35 lead after the third quarter. Joey Shackleford paced the Rams' attack with 23 points and nine rebounds while Kelly Strong chipped in with a 14-point performance. Has winter been hard on your car?

Regular HIGH PRAIRIE, Alta. (CP)*-- Mel Watchorn of Fairview moved to within a single game of his second consecutive Alberta men's curling title with an 11-3 victory over Jack Is a-man of Edmonton Friday night. Isaman dropped back into the B final of the modfied double-knockout playoff, against Ron Northcott of Calgary, a three-time world champion. Watchorn stole a pair of points on the fourth end after Isarman blanked the first three frames. Watchorn stole three more on the fifth and was never again threatened. The game ended on the ninth when Watchorn made a spectacular raise take out for five points. Meanwhile Ron Northcott of Calgary eliminated Al Delmage of Yellowknife, N.W.T., 13-6 in the semi-finals of the B event. Northcott pulled out of range with three points on the fourth and four on the sixth to move ahead &-2. The B final was to be played this morning with the winner advancing against Watchorn in the afternoon. If Watchorn loses that meeting, there would be a sudden-death playoff tonight. Earlier Northcott was upset by defending provincial champion Watchorn. Isaman turned back Al Delmage of Yellow-knife, N.W.T., 8-5. The turning point of the Northcott - Watchorn battle came on the fourth end when Watchorn stole a point after Northcott failed on a tight come-around out -turn on a chance for two points . Watchorn, leading 6-3, stole another big point on the seventh when Northcott, facing two enemy counters, only cut his rival to a single point on a draw to the four foot. The two men shook hands after the 11th end was blanked following a roll-out by Northcott 'on a take-out. The play was fairly even in the Delmage - Isaman encounter until the Edmonton rink stole two on the seventh end. Facing Two Edmonton rocks, Delmage slipped through the house when he failed to draw enough on a lay-up shot. Isaman, leading 7-5 coming home, responded to two N.W.T. counters buried in the twelve-foot circle with a clutch freeze. Delmage slipped by, trying to chip his opponent out on a bid for two in an attempt to send the game into an extra end. Craig Andrews and Curtis Klovansky aided in the win with eight points apiece. Andrews allso nailed down eight of the Rams' 36 rebounds Jim Toone was the top scorer for the Cougars with 20 points while pulling in 11 of the Cougars' 28 rebounds.
