Kodiettes record now 7-1 Kodiaks win eighth straight By GARRY ALLISON Dave Preus and Greg Hess, with 21 and 20 points respec- uu Herald Sports Wriler Uve'y- were the toP Kodiak get'ers. The duo picked up 28 Letnbridge Community College Kodiaks won their eighth points between them in the last half, many of them coming in .basketball game in a row in league competition Saturday after- the 11 minute scoring outburst noon at the LCC, but not before the SAIT Trojans threw a mild scare their way. The LCC boys ended up with a comfortable 22 point cushion, winning 90 68, but with only 11 minutes remaining in the game the teams were tied 58 58. Then the Kodiak offence went to work. In the next 11 minutes they not only grabbed the lead, but outscored their opponents 32 10. In the game prior to the Kodiak Trojan tussle the LCC Kodiettes had little trouble outdistancing the SAIT Helenas 73 With the win the gals from the LCC ran their conference record this season to seven wins and one loss. Shirley Yuill, with 20 points, and Shelley Reeder with 19, were the top Kodiette point getters. Both girls played solid games, with Reeder showing particular strength on the boards. The girls had their passing plays clicking Saturday and for the second game in the row at home were running extremely well. Kodiette coach Ray Stoddard expressed pride in' his charges' performance. "The girls are playing extremely well, particularly since the start of the second semester when we added a few new faces. Our only major problem seems to be the tendency to pass the ball once too often under the basket. But with some of the other problems we've overcome, that isn't too tough a the coach said. One of the Kodiette additions is Jan Pa ton, who adds a lot of ball handling ability to the backcourt. Brenda Lazerick con- tinues to be a strong performer in the backcourt as well and added 16 points in Saturday's game. Good positional play and a defence that has solidified a great deal are two of the main reasons for the Kodiettes high standing in the conference. Cheryl Epp was the high scorer for the Tom Sindlinger coached Helenas with seven points and Dawn Johnson added six. On the male side of the ledger Kodiak coach Ben Brooks had praise for the defensive work of his charges, centering in on Glen Schuler and John Jasiukiewicz. "Glen was sensational on the boards and blocking shots, and John played solidly on defence. He carried the ball out so many times, and his offensive set ups were Brooks said.' 'Greg Hess played well for us both on defence and was ad- vancing the ball up the floor much Hess was responsible for pulling in 11 rebounds while Schuler grabbed off nine. Hess forced five Trojan turnovers during the game, and Schuler also banged home 14 points. Ken'don Eakett was another bright light for the Kodiaks on the playmaking end of things as his 10 assists led the club. Jasiukiewicz was next in line with eight assists. "One of the things I enjoyed most about the game was the offensive thrust we demonstrated at the coach Brooks, stated. "I've almost sweated blood at times trying to get them to give that kind of thrust at the close of a game. It was gratify- ing to get it." Wendell Cahoon was the fourth Kodiak to hit double figures, hooping 10 points, despite seeing only about 12 minutes of action in the opening half. Kodiaks held a narrow 42 38 point lead at half time, and trailed only once in the opening stanza, and that was only by one point in the first two minutes. The Trojans, who received 19 points from Ed Dick, battled back in the second half and for the first nine minutes the lead see sawed back and forth. It was then the Kodiak offence started to the Trojans 14 0 between the and marks. While the Kodiaks didn't play the ball the way they were capable of during most of the game it did make for the most ex- citing men's game the loyal Kodiak supporters have witnessed this year. REBOUNDS Kodiaks hit 48% of their shots from the field and 10 of 15 foul shots the Kodiette Helenas contest must have set a record for jump balls it seemed like there was at least one jump ball a minute Dave Peterson was the most accurate Kodiak shooter hitting both of his shots from the floor Wendell Cahoon was next in line with five of seven go- ing in... the Trojans could only muster a 30% average from the field the Kodiettes forced the Helenas to the outside with some aggressive defence under the boards if one was to pick three stars in the Kodiak game Dave Preus would have to be among them while Wayne Anderson wasn't in double figures he was a valuable asset to the Kodiak cause with some fine passing plays the Trojans closed the gap prior to the end of the first half when they hit all four of the technical foul shots they were awarded Kodiaks forced 14 turnovers during the game Kodiaks next games will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Ontario, Oregon and Pocatello, Idaho.

"How am I gonna top Miller asked Sunday after he shot an 11-under-par 61 for an- other run-away victory, this time in the Tucson Open golf tournament. He asked the same question a week ago when he won the Phoenix Open with a 260 total, the lowest 72-hole score in 20 years of tournament com- petition. He was 24 under par for that tournament. But he found a way to top it.' He went 25 under par for a 72- hole total of 263, on the Tucson National Golf Club course, at yards one of the longest layouts the touring pros play all year. He won by nine strokes. In completing an unprece- dented second consecutive sweep of the two Arizona tour- naments, Miller has led or shared the lead in every round with a season stroke average of 65.4. "He's said John Mahaffey, a distant sec- ond with a closing 67 and 272. "Without doubt, it was the greatest round of golf of my said Miller.. "I could have shot in the 50s. "I didn't miss a green. I missed one fairway and that by not much. I never had the bail more than 15 feet from the hole, he said. He scored nine birdies and an eagle on fast, bumpy greens that Arnold Palmer called "the most treacherous I've seen in a long time." He missed two other birdie putts of five feet. "I'm hitting the ball so good it's almost a Miller said. Whitworth outplayed Sandra Post MIAMI (AP) Kathy Whitworth outplayed top challenger Sandra Post with a one over par 73 in head to head competition Sunday to win first-place money in the Triple Crown tourna- ment of the Ladies Professional Golf Association. The lanky Texan, all time top money winner in the LPGA tour, double bogeyed the last hole but finished two shots in front with a 36-hole total of 144, even par. Miss Post, a stroke behind her playing partner at the start of the day, remained in second until the next to last hole, when a double bogey six dropped the former Oakville, Ont., resident five strokes off the pace and a stroke behind a third playing partner, Judy Rankin.
