Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan J CAN'T REMEMBER ever looking forward to one particular sports season as much as I am towards this coming winter's basketball action. If there was ever one to compare with it it would have to have been the hockey season 1969-70, the year after Lethbridge Sugar Kings lost to Regina Pats in the western Canada semi-final. It was with great anticipation that I awaited that hockey year but it never came off. Sugar King officials fired coach Don McLean after a winning year and the club has been at a steady rate of de- cline in popularity ever since. But that is another story. I'm excited about the upcoming basketball year. It has all the earmarks of possibly the best, calibre- wise, since the days of the old Broder's Chinooks. I know the Chinooks were senior and the best in Canada. I'm not taking anything away from them. What I'm doing is simpiy stating facts that are now and in the immediate future. We, and I'm in- cluding all of us, are in for a real treat. There is a definite aura surrounding the campus at the University of Lethbridge and a similar one at tlie Community College. The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns, while it would appear they have been sidetracked in their .bid for a Canada West conference title due to the un- fortunate injury to Bill Magierowski, have possibly the best university basketball player in Canada in Phil Tollestrup. To quote Don Fry, coach of the University of Saskatchewan Huskies "Phil Tollestrup, in my esti- mation, is the top player in Canada today." Fry went on to say I hat anyone who could hold Ail-American Sidney Wicks to 13 points in a game had to be some kind of ball player. Tollestrup did just that in his last year with Brigham Young University. There is no getting away from it, Tollestrup is the key to the Pronghorns' chance's this season. At present the Pronghorns are 1-1 after splitting with the Huskies last weekend. Tollestrup scored 70 points in those two games. He hooped 30 Friday and came back with 40 Saturday. Gary Bowie, Pronghorns' coach says "Tollestrup played some kind of basketball game Saturday." Bowie is certain the big guy will hit the 50 mark before the season is too old. The Pronghorn machine will depend a great deal on Tollestrup and what kind of year he has. Let's face it, as Tollestrup goes, so go the Pronghorns. Meanwhile at the Community College coach Tom Karren says he is looking for an even bigger year this time than the Kodiaks enjoyed last year when they won the western Canada title. Mr. Karren, it could be the toughest basketball act to follow since the Harlem Globetrotters last put on their show in Lethbridge. Kodiaks averaged 92 points a game last year and are not having any trouble putting points on the board this year. In the Calgary Mount Royal College Classic the locals chalked up 308 points while allow- ing just 211. Karren has an enviable nucleus of players back from last year in Gary Williams, Alec Dudas, Curt Wolsey, Kendon Eakett, Alan Pard and Bruce Millis. He also has brought in Dwight White from Blue Mountain College in Pendleton, Ore. To say Karren wants to repeat as western champs would be an understatement. So there you have it. I have simply scratched the surface of what should be a tremendous basket- ball year. To go into great detail about each club would take more space than is available in a short time. Besides, if things work out the way I feel they will, I will have ample time to expound on just how great a year the 1972-73 basketball season is. Now all I want to see is a match-up between the Kodiaks and Pronghorns. Islanders enjoy their Jew and iar between ivins Novtmber 12, 197? THI LETHBKIDGI HtRAlD 7 Bobby Hull was grounded, but appeal has been filed By THE CANADIAN PRESS Despite being without its Jet, Winnipeg had enough power Tuesday night to leave Houston well behind in World Hockey Association play. Bobby Hull, the Golden Jet of Winnipeg, was grounded by a court order issued Monday in SPORT Chicago which said he couldn't play because a S2.5 million bond hadn't been posted by the WHA as required by an earlier court ruling. However, lawyers for Hull filed an appeal of the court or- der and asked the Illinois Ap- pelate Court for an emergency hearing to have it dissolved. National League selects Matlack NEW YORK (AP) Jon Matlack, who mastered a major league curve ball just last win- ter and used it to win 15 games HUGH TAMBLYN LCI Rams prepare for annual event Coach Hugh Tamblyn of the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams, is getting his chargers ready for the sixth annual LCI Invitational High School Bas- ketball Tournament planned for next weekend. The Rams will host an eight- team two day affair with en- tries from British Columbia, northern Montana, Saskatche- wan and southern Alberta. Seven of the eight teams, who tavc confirmed their entry in- clude, Grand Forks, B.C., Krem- Gilford Cougars and Valier of Montana, Calgary Winston Ihurchill, Magrath, Lethbridge Catholic Central Cougars and the host Hams. The Regina club has not been chosen as yet. Further information on the wop tourney will be released at a later date. for New York Mets in the 1972 baseball sesson, today was named the National League's Rookie of the Year. The 22-year-old southpaw was a runaway winner of the award, receiving 19 out of a possible 24 votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America com- mittee. His landslide win was the big- gest since Kenny Hubbs of Chi- cago Cubs polled 19 after the 1962 season. The Writers distributed their remaining votes to catcher Dave Rader of San Francisco Giants, who received four bal- lots, and New York Met out- fielder John Milner, who got one. Mallack was a pleasant sur- prise for the Mets, who needed a solid southpaw starter when Jerry Koosman came up with arm problems in spring train- ing. LEARNED THE CURVE Matlack spent three seasons with the Mets' Triple-A farm team at Tidewater before com- ing up at the end of last season. He lost three games with the Mets in limited work, then pitched winter ball in Puerto Rico in an attempt to learn to control his curve. Getting the opportunity to face ma.ior league hitting also improved his confidence. Mat- lack stepped right into the starting rotation and wound up the second highest winner on the staff behind ace Tom Sea- ver. Matlack had a 15-10 record with a 2.32 earned run average, the best on the team and the foi'.-th best in the league. The left-hander started 32 games, comleted eight of them and pitched four shutouts. Matlack was the Mets' No. 1 draft choice from West Chester, Pa., high school in 1967. Rader took over the Giants' regular catching job about a month into the season. His 1972 credentials included a .259 bat- ting average, six home runs and 41 runs batted in. Milner was a Met regular in his first full year, hitting 17 homers and compiling a .238 batting average. Catcher Earl Williams of At- lanta Braves won the award last year. Hull said Tuesday he hoped the situation would be cleared up by Thursday when the Jets again play in Houston. As it is, he's the highest paid non-player in the sports world. He jumped from Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League to the Jets for a contract calling for million. Meanwhile, his mates on the ice were more than the Aeros could handle as Winnipeg took a 4-2 decision and improved its hold on first-place in the West- ern Division. In other games, Minnesota Fighting Saints defeated Al- berta Oilers 4-3 in overtime; Ot- tawa Nationals downed Quebec les Nordiques 4-2 and Cleveland Crusaders hammered Los Ange- les Sharks 5-2. BORDELEAU PACES JETS In Houston, with 4.043 fans on hand, Chris Bordeleau scored bis 16th and 17th goals of the season, both unassisted, to pace the Jet win. Ab McDonald and Cal Swen- son got the other Jet goals with Gord Labossiere scoring both Aeros' goals. Cleveland got the top-notch goaltending it expects from for- mer Boston Bruin Gerry Chee- vers, who stopped 46 Los Ange- les shots, 20 in the first period. Meanwhile in the NHL the New York Islanders don't win many National Hockey League games, but when they do they pick on clubs from California. So far this year, the Island- ers, playing their first season in the NHL, have won only three against California Golden Seals and one against Los Angeles Kings. Tuesday night, they beat the Seals 4-2. They also beat the Seals Nov. one was a little easier, they took Los Angeles 3-2 Oct. 12 for their first NHL victory. If they hope to move from their basement position in the Eastern Division, they'll have to beat someone else. With just seven Islanders tied Chicago Black Hawks 4-4 on Oct. eight points be- N.Y.

In other games Tuesday the results were: St. Louis 4 Van- couver 2 and New York Rangers 3 Atlanta 1. The Seals' loss combined with St. Louis' win put last-place California three points behind the Blues In the Western Divi- sion. Brian Spencer and Ed West- fall were the keys to New York's win. Spencer fired the winner on a pass from Westfall and then Westfall wrapped it up after a pass from Spencer. Both goals came in the final period. The Islanders were full value for their win, outshooting Cali- fornia 33-23 as fans watched in Uniondale, N.Y. Meanwhile, in the other ex- pansion city, Atlanta Flames disappointed their fans with their loss to the Rangers, who moved to within three points of league-leading Mon- treal Canadiens in the East. CHINOOK CIRCUIT'S BEST The Chinook Amateur Rodeo Circuit presented their various event winners with trophies at a fine awards dinner this past weekend.

Foster loses to AH Frazier is the best Jonas gives his version of loss Sunday Bad field position plaqued Blue Bombers STATEL1NE, Nev. (AP) Former heavyweight champion Muhammed Ali still says that Joe Frazier, the only man who has beaten him, is wearing a crown "too heavy for his brow." But Bob Foster, who lost by an eighth-round knockout to Ali Tuesday night, landed a left jab that cut the ex-champ early in the fight and later cut Ali with his remarks. "I don't think he can punch like said Foster, the reigning light heavy champion who was knocked out in the sec- ond round by Frazier in a 1970 heavyweight title match. "I don't think he can beat him." Ali sat quietly, holding an ice pack to the swelling left side of his face as he listened to Fos- ter's comments during a post- fight conference. Then he re- peated what he's been saying since losing a 15-round decision 20 months ago in the biggest money event in boxing history: "I want Frazier. 1 don't want the division to die because the champion is killing it." Frazier has fought just two unranked opponents, for a total of eight rounds, since beating 1 Ali, who has gone into the ring nine times for a total of 86 rounds in that period. Foster, who at 180 was out- weighed by 41 pounds, gave Ah' some of the roughest rounds in his 41-fight pro career despite being knocked down seven times. Foster went down the fi- nal time 40 seconds into the eighth round. "He's a great, great said Ah'. "I've got a cut and a bruise. That's something that Frazier nor anyone else could do to me. The cut over his left eye re- quired five stitches. Don't Miss These Great Savings! Ml Men's Boys' WINNIPEG (CP) Winipeg quarterback Don Jonas, after a day of thought, says the Blue Bombers' failure to pain field position in the second half of Sunday's Western Football Con- ference sudden-deal h Final WES a major contribution to the club's 27-24 less to Saskatche- wan Roughridcrs. The West's Ail-Star quarter- back, writing in Tuesday's Trib- une, said: "There were pretty general reasons for our second-half I thought. Most, im- portant, we were having trouble getting Into field position, we kept giving up the ball in bad position, especially with those interceptions, and when we did that, we gave them the momen- tum tiiey needed." .lonns. nnmed Tuesday as the all-star quarterback for the second straight year, said the Bombers "perhaps scored to easily in that first half" when they built up a 21-7 mar- gin, "or it could be we panicked when they started coming to us." The Winnipeg quarter back crodiled Saskatchewan defen- sive hack Lewis Cook with two big interceptions, but said, SOUTHERN ALBERTA JUVENILE LEAGUE J33H TONIGHT WEDNESDAY, NOV. 22nd P.M.
