Key West Gains Upset Win Over Miami Beach
Strong Second Half Gives Key West Verdict Over Favorites The Key West High School turned on the steam in the second half Saturday night to gain an upset win over the crack Miami Tech cage squad, 50-43. The win was doubly sweet for the lo cals who have been plugging along under a jinx that has seen them drop a lot of close ones * It looked like an old and familiar story in the opening moments of Saturday’s con test when Tech jumped into a 13-8 lead. The halftime found the Conchs on the short end of a 24-22 lead but when they came back from the locker room they opened up with as pretty an offen sive as they have turned loose this season to date— they actually outplayed the Miamians who were heavy favorites to cop a win. It was the fine Key West defensive play in the first half plus scoring efforts on the part of Glynn Archer and Stu Logun during the early minutes of the contest that kept the Key Westers in the ballgame. Repeatedly they frustrated the Miami efforts at working the ball in and their scraopy fighting under the basket bore fruit when the up staters couldn’t get set to run up the score. The Conchs played a furious brand of ball in the first half and when the second half got under way, they amazingly maintained their fast pace and actually out ran the Tech five to gain the win. It was Gibby Gates and Jim my Selemen who teamed up to supply the scoring punch when Gates dumped in eight points and Solomon scored for three field goals and a foul shot to contribute seven to the Conch cause. Solomon with 14 points, paced the locals in the scoring depart ment while Stu Logun dropped in 10 for the winning cause. Dusty Rhodes had 15 for the Techmen. The win broght the Key West season record to seven wins in 14 starts and they will have a chance at finishing the season in winning form on Friday night when they tackle the tough Homestead Club in Key West. The Homesteaders own an early season verdict over the Conchs and the chips will be down when the two clubs meet.
