Coral Gables Shades Conchs Friday, 41-34
Key West Shaves
Cavalier Lead
But Drops Tilt
The Coral Gables high
school basketball teajn forg
ed to a second quarter lead
and weathered a late rally
staged by the Key West
Conchs to gain a 41-34 vic
tory last night before a cap
acity crowd in the high
school gymnasium.
To say that the game
was a rough and tumble con
test would be something of
an understatement. Close
checking was the order of
the evening, a piece of strat
egy which resulted in a full
evening of thrills and chills
for the spectators.
Hie contest proved one thing
once he gets his boys working
smoothly, Coach Win Jones may
have the makings of a winning
basketball squad. Apparently suf
fering from opening game jitters,
the cagers showed spotty shooting
eyes last night and their ball hand
ling was shaky. But their aggres
siveness very nearly pinned a loss
on the highly rated Cavaliers, who
are Big Ten competitors.
Burly Julio Henriquez, with 20
points, led the Conchs in. the scor
ing department but the ball - hawk
ing tactics of Gene favors and
John Carbonell also aided the
Conch, cause considerably. Johnny
Smoot and Ken Henderson teamed
up with 13 points each to pace
the Coral Gables quintet.
But, just as Key West coach Win
Jones had predicted in a pre-game
statement, the tilt was won from
the foul line. Both teams clicked
for 30 points from the field. But
the Gables cagers capitalized on
the close checking and dumped in

11 points from the foul line as com
pared with the Conchs’ four.
And that was the difference in
the ballgame.
The Cavaliers took a 7-5 advan
tage in the opening quarter but
they stretched their lead to a 21-
9 edge at the half.
The Cavaliers exhibited a
smoothly functioning plan of attack
and backed it up with an effective
zone defense that wouldn’t let the
Conchs get under the basket. The
locals had little success from the
outside. The only factor that kept
them in the ballgame was the ag
gressiveness that enabled them to
take advantage of every mistake
on the part of the visitors.
The Conchs managed to battle
it out on even terms with the Ca
valiers in the third quarter largely
through the efforts of Henriquez,
who began to hit the layups.
But the locals really went to work
in the fourth quarter and only a
lack of time seemingly kept them
from overtaking the Gables.
The Conchs pulled to within six
points of the lead with three min
utes to play but a pair of costly
fouls hurt them.
The ballgame ended as Haney
dumped in a set short from the
foul circle. It wasn’t enough.
The game is the only tuneup for
the Conchs who start Gold Coast
Conference competition Tuesday a
gainst their perennial rivals in
South Dade.

50,000 Seen For
Jr. Rose Bowl
PASADENA, Calif, (jpl—Two of
the nation’s top junior college foot
ball teams, Hinds of Mississippi
and El Camino of California, meet
today in the ninth annual Jun
ior Rose Bowl Game.
Upwards of 50,000 fans are ex
pected to see the contest, which
shaps up as a duel between El
Camino’s dangerous passing attack
and the running tactics of the
Mississippi Eagles.
The California team is favored,
mainly because it has a remark
able passer in its T-formation
quarterback Joe Contestabile.
Hinds’ set of backs, however,
has dealt misery to all opponents
and the team rolled up 3,230 yards
for the season and an average per
game of 358 yards. El Camino
gained 2,019 yards, and 224 per
game.
