Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan _ J I T 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 anil 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 simply slating 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 n a definite aura surrounding the campus at Ihc University of Lc-lhlmuge and a similar one at Hie 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 Tollestnip. To quote Don Fry, coach of the University 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 All-American Sidney to 13 points in a game had to be some kind of ball player. Tollestnip 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, Pronghonis' 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 Letlibridge. 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 Kendon Eakett, Alan Pard and Bruce MUlis. He also has brought in Dwight White from Blue Mountain College in Pendlelon, 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 few and iar between wins -Widnetdey, November M, 1972 THE LETHBKIDCI HKALD 7 Bobby Hull was grounded, but appeal has been filed By THE CANADIAN PIIESS Despite being without its Jet, Winnipeg had enough power Tuesday night lo 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 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 Lhe eight teams, who have confirmed their entry in- clude, Grand Forks, B.C., Krem- lin Gilford Cougars and Valier of Montana, Calgary Winston Churchill, Magratli, Lethbridge Catholic Central Cougars and the host Hams. The Regina club has not been chosen as yet. Further information on the hoop tourney will be released at a later date- tor New York Mets in the 1972 baseball season, 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 lo catcher Dave Rader of San Francisco Giants, who received four bal- lots, and New York Met out- fielder John Milner, who got one. Matlack was a pleasant sur- prise [or 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 Mets1 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 li control his curve. Getting the opportunity to face major league hilling 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 recori 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 a n pitched four shutouts. Matlack was the Mels' No. 1 draft choice from West Chester Pa., high school in 1967. Rader took over the Giants regular catching job about 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, Mtting 1 homers and compiling a .238 batting average. Catcher Earl Williams of At- lanta Braves won the award last year. Hull said Tuesday he hoped he situation would be cleared up by Thursday when the Jets .gain play in Houston. As it is, ic's the highest paid non-player n the sports world. He jumped rom Chicago Black Hawks of he National Hockey League to .he Jets for a contract calling 'or million. Meanwhile, his males on the ce 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 righting Saints defeated At- lerta Oilers 4-3 in overtime; Ot- lawa Nationals downed Quebec les Nordiques 4-2 and Cleveland Crusaders hammered Los Ange les Sharks 5-2. BORDELEAU PACES JETS In Houston, with 4.C43 fans on land, Chris Borileleau scored fcis 16th and 17th goals of the season, both unassisted, to pace ie Jet win. Ab McDonald and Cal Swen- son got the other Jet goals with Gord Labossiere scoring both Aeros' goals. Cleveland gol 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. Maanwhile in the NHL the New York Iskrders don't win many National Hockey League ames, but when they do they tick on clubs from California. So far this year, the Island- ers, playing their first season in the NHL, have won only three against California Jolden Seals and one against Los Angeles Kings. Tuesday night, they boat 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 ,heir basement position in the Eastern Division, they'll have to beat someone eke. With jus seven Islanders tied Chicago Black Hawks 4-4 on Oct. eight points be- hind seventh-place Toronto Maple Leafs. 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 it. Louis' win put last-place !alifornia three points behind the Blues In the Western Divi- sion. Brian Spencer and Ed West- lall were the keys lo New York's win. Spencer fired the winner on a pass from Westfall and then Westfall wrapped it up after a pass from Spencc-r. Both goals came in the final period. The Islanders were full value for their win, ouLshootbig 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 threa points of league-leading Mon- treal Canadiens in the East.

(AP) Former heavyweight champion Muhammed Ali still says that Joe Frazier, the only man who has beaten Mm, 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 tbat cut the ex-champ early in Urn 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 Mm." Ah" sat quietly, holding an ice pack to the swelling left side of his face as he listened lo Fos- ter's comments during a post- fight conference. Then he re- pealed 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 Dealing I Ali, who has gone into the ring nine limes for a total of 86 rounds in that period. Foster, who at 180 was out- weighed by 41 pounds, gave Ali some of the roughest rounds in his 41-fight pro career despite being knocked down seven limes. Foster went down the fi- nal time 40 seconds into the eighth round. "He's a great, great said Ali. "I've got a cut and a bruise. That's something that Frazier nor anyone else could do to me. The cul over his left eye re- quired five stitches. Don't Miss These Great Savings! Men's Boys' WINNIPEG (CP) Winipeg quarterback Don Jonas, after a day of thought, says the Blue Bombers' failure to pain field position in (he second half of Sunday's Wc-ilern I'nolball Con- ference suclclcn-doalli final a major contribution to the club's 27-24 lo Saskatche- wan noughridcrs The West's All-Star quarter- back, writing in Tuesday's Trio- une, said: "There were prelly general reasons for our second-half I thought. Most im- portant, we were having (rouble getting Into field position, we kept giving up the ball In bad position, especially with those interceptions, and when we did lhat, we gave them the momen- tum llicy needed." Jonas, n.imed Tuesday as the V.TC all-s'.ar quarterback for (he second .straight year, said Hie Bombers "perhaps scored (o easily in that first half" when they built up a 21-7 mar- pin, "or it could be panicked when they started coming to s." The Winnipeg quarter back credited Saskatchewan defen- sive hack Ijewis Cook with two bit; interceptions, but said, SOUTHERN ALBERTA JUVENILE LEAGUE TONIGHT WEDNESDAY, NOV. 22nd P.M.
