By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer Canada Winter -Games results belie the fact: Alberta has some of the best basket- ball players in Canada. Alberta's men's team, the Mount Royal College Cougars from out of the medals in sixth place. Alberta's women, the Univer- sity of Alberta Pandas from Edmonton, did slightly better, finishing fifth. The reason for Alberta's dismal show in basketball? It's not for lack of good facilities, experienced coaches or talented players. The coach of the men's basketball team from Quebec, which won the gold medal for the event, readily admits .that Alberta is "10 years ahead of us." Alberta's lacklustre show- ing is no mystery to its men's Lifting, skating sold out All weightlifting and figure skating events Friday have been sold out, says Winter Games ticket boss Pat Berti. While hockey finals Satur- day at the Sportsplex sold out over a week ago, all tickets for Games figure skating competition Friday night were bought up by late Tuesday, says Mrs. Berti. Afternoon and evening weightlifting at Yates Centre also sold out Tuesday. There are still, tickets available .for boxing events later this week. coach, Jack Kenyon. Unlike gold and silver winning Quebec and British Columbia, Alberta did not field an all- star team. Consequently, Alberta's finest players, stymied by the political intrigues of amateur basketball, never received a chance to wear Alberta's colors. NO MATCH Instead, the winning team from 10-team playdowns last year was automatically seed- ed as Alberta's Winter Games team by the Alberta Amateur Basketball Association. Mr. Kenyon, coach of the Cougars for 12 years, is (he first to concede that his squad, which enjoys an 11-1 win-loss record in the Alberta College Athletic Conference, is no match for the Quebec all- stars. In fact, when the two teams met in Cardston Feb. 15, Quebec trounced Alberta 107-79. "Quebec has had a provin- cial team together for some time. It spent last summer training in the United States. "It's difficult for a team chosen by the route to compete with an all-star team like ruefully adds Mr. Kenyon. "Other provinces, like Nova Scotia, changed their school schedules to allow players to come here for the Games." Alberta, however, is a different story. While Games regulations allowed the Cougars to "strengthen" its roster, players on teams like the LCC Kodiaks are com- mitted to playing in their school's schedule. "I think if you're going to have a team, let's do it and not mess around." Alberta needs an all-star selection as well as a training program to prepare its team for provincial com- petition, he says. "In future we have to follow Quebec's example. Their approach is very professional. "It's really a political thing. Quebec wants to be number one, so they go with their best. "It all boils down to dollars and cents and Quebec has put -a lot of money into amateur sport." When will Alberta follow Quebec- and B.C.? Mr. Kenyon predicts that the Alberta team, which travels to Regina this summer for the Western Canada Games, will be a fair sampl- ing of the province's talent. Future Games teams, he adds, will probably be all-star squads. Coach Kenyon claims incoming president of the governing amateur association, Rob Hunt of Calgary, is in agreement with the Cougars' coach. SUPPORT The provincial department of culture, youth and recreation, he adds, also agrees with the all-star concept. Will the provincial govern- ment come through with the money needed to select and train an all-star team? "I don't think there will be any predicts Coach Kenyon.

An anticipated lodgings shortage failed 8 to materialize over the weekend, with the Games housing bureau receiving only four jv calls, and hotels and motels reporting empty rooms. What happened to the crowds? 'My only explanation is the cold weather and the icy 8 roads held said Doug Dunlop, 3 Games publicity director. "It was hard to read and everyone was he said. "We guessed wrong. "Most people perhaps thought rooms would be at a premium and drove in and drove out again. "Basically the opinion was we'd only be -K strapped for the first three days while the VIPs were here. But we thought things S; would be full over the weekend. xj "I haven't really got the answer to that iS other than the roads and the Weather." Mr. Dunlop -noted, that most sports g: events have been well attended however. "We are now publicizing the fact the S rooms are he said.
