This was just one of the exciting moments in the championship final of the Alberta College men's basketball tourney staged at the LCC gym Satur- day night. The Kodiaks eventually scored a breath-taking 76-72 victory over the Cougars. Kodiaks capture Alberta college title By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks survived the perils of the unexpected to capture the 1973-74 Alberta college men's basketball championship title on their home court over the weekend. When it comes to playoff action it's anybody's ball game and no one was more aware of this fact than the Kodiaks. who had psyched themselves up to score a breath-taking 76-72 victory over the Calgary Mount Royal College Cougars in the championship final Saturday night. The narrow win before a packed-house gave the home- standing Kodiaks their third striaght Alberta college crown and berth into the 4- West championships to be staged in Winnipeg next weekend. The top four finishers of the 1973-74 Alberta College Athletic Conference Men's Basketball League season sought the trip to Winnipeg for the Western Canada college championships, but much similar to that of the past season, the Kodiaks and Cougars were the only ones strong enough to stay in contention for the title. The Kodiaks. who sported a 13-1 record to share the ACACMBL pennent title with the Cougars this year, placed first in the two-day single- knockout event with two wins while the Cougars followed in second. Third place went to the Cam rose Lutheran College Vikings, who defeated the Red Deer College Kings in the consolation final. Meanwhile the championship final Saturday night was a classic in itself and surprised many Kodiaks' supporters, who anticipated a loo-sided victory for their team, since the" locals had trounced the same club by 71 points in their last meeting. The Kodiaks obviously faced a different ball club in the championship final and had been wise enough to prepare themselves mentally lor the Cougars. The clubs battled end-to-end throughout the 40 minutes of play with neither club holding more than a three-point spread at any given time. It was like a game of catch as the clubs exchanged the lead at least 20 times during the encounter. The final outcome of the tilt was never really decided until some two minutes remained in the game. The Kodiaks, who led 69-68 at this point, went on a seven- point streak which lasted until 28 seconds were left on the clock. The Cougars came back with two quick baskets, but the damage had already been done. Gary Williams, who was selected the tourney's most valuable player, led the Kodiaks with a brilliant 20- point performance while picking off 19 big rebounds. Teammates Brent Fairbanks and Jerry Shockey chipped in with 15 points and 14 points respectively while Greg Hess added another 11 points along with 14 rebounds. The Kodiaks shot 31 per cent from the field and 60 per cent from the free throw line while picking off 57 of 105 rebounds. Paul Hayes and Doug Baker paced the Cougars' attack with 16 points. Cougars had a field goal average of 29 per cent and a free throw average of 66 per cent. Meanwhile the Camrose Vikings received a 22-point outing from Gary Relling to defeat the Red Deer Kings in the consolation final. Teammate Greg Olsen chipped in with 21 points while Henry Grieb paced the Kings with 12 points. HOOP SHOTS-All-star awards went to Baker and Hayes of the Cougars, Relling and Olsen of the Kings and Shockey of the Kodiaks Williams, who was named the MVP, deserved the honor bestowed on him as he literally carried the Kodiaks to the championship title Other Kodiaks who deserve recognition for outstanding efforts include Hess, Fairbanks. Shockey and John Jasiukiewipz Kodiaks' trainer. Jack Linderman, was assessed a technical foul for yelling at the officials, but rumors have it that he didn't say a thing The fans behind the Kodiaks' bench were the guilty ones The LCC drill team should be commended for a beautiful halftime presentation. Regular hoop season is over The Southern Alberta High School Basketball League came to a close Saturday night with a pair of games. Lethbridge Collegiate Rams upended Catholic Central Cougars 44-36 while the Cougars from Cardston romped past host Magrath Zeniths 7541.
