The Blue Mountain Commun- ity College Timber Wolves smacked their lips after de- vouring Uie Trimly Western College Spartans 139-105 and captured the first annual Leth- bridge Community College President's Invitational basket- ball tournament over the week- end. Meanwhile, the host Kodiaks came up with one of their best games of the young season and clawed the Great Falls Argos 9M8 to earn the consolation title. The Timber Wolves from Pendleton, Oregon needed only two victories in the two-day af- fair to win the championship titles as they received a'bye into the final. A draw was made Saturday morning among the coaches in each division to see which team got the bye. The Kodiaks won the free trip in the con- solation division.

Before a packed house at the Civic Sports Centre Saturday night, the Timber Wolves jump- ed to a big 78-37 lead at half- time and never looked back. The point spread could hard- ly indicate the way the game was played as the Spartans from Langley, B.C. and the Wolves displayed a top-notch- ed brand of ball. During the second half, the cramped spectators witnessed end-to-cnd rushes which fea- tured dazzling plays and fan- tastic shooting. GREAT EFFORT As Gordon College the LCC's student co-ordinator put it: "These two teams played like N.B.A. ball clubs." Jim Clark was outstanding for the Timber Wolves during the 40 minutes as he gave the crowd many exciting moments. Clark, who was named the most valuable player in the two-day affair, constantly rob- bed the Spartans on breath-tak- ing checks. Standing at six feet, Clark has the agility and ability to out-jump players with longer reaches. On many occasions he would tip away any balls that seem- ed to spin around on the rim. dark also helped the team in scoring racking up 24 points along with Mike Rainey who notched the same number. Mike Brown and John Board- man were also instrumental in the victory scoring 22 points apiece. Al Tbiessen was the top point getter for the Spartans with 31 points while Al Newman and Rudy Siemens managed 21 and 15 respectively. In the consolation final, the Kodiaks were a different ball club Friday night as they hus- tled and shot their way to an easy victory over the Great Falls Argos. At half-time tire Kodiaks held a slim 35-34 lead, but came out like block-busters in the final 20 minutes out-scoring their op- ponents 60-34. From the field, the Kodiaks hit for 43 per cent of their shots while from the foul line they managed a 69 per cent average. consolation Curt Wolscy led the Kodiaks attack will) 'Hi points while Alec Dudus chipped in v.ith 26 and Gary Williams with 15.

Drug usage is common says Kar rras DETROIT fAP> Alex Kar- i s, former Detroit Lion star, s y.s the n.se of drugs is wide- spread in professional football. In a story written for the De- troit Free Press. Karras that former football placer Dave Megcssey was "mostly right" when he alleped tluit many, if not most, professional football players use drugs to in- crease their ability and ignore injuries. "I've taken shots, cr novo- cainc injections, and I've taken pep pills, and so have a lot of other Lions and so do players on almost any team you'd care to Karras says. ''It's a very common thing. "Some players take 'cm (pep pills) by the handful before a ball game.'1 Karras says pep pills are common as novocaine shots, taken to "play over'' m juries. While no one ever orders hots or pills, Karras says, pressure from coaches and team-mates drives players to take them to be able to perform when they are hurt.
