Confident Cards Journey To Shaker Friday Alter Drubbing Rangers 77-44 By Bob Keefer Shaw’s sharpshooting eagers will have their sights trained on their second Lake Erie League victory when they visit the Shaker Heights court tomorrow night. The Cardi nals, their confidence restored by last week’s decisive win over Lake wood, will be favored to defeat the Red Raiders who have lost both of their games to date. The host five dropped a 45-40 decision to Glen ville in their season opener and were on the short end of a 43-34 score against Lorain last Friday. Coach Fred Heinlen’s basketeers lack experience this season, Dick Danka, 6 ft. 4 in. center, being the only returning letterman. Most of the varsity squad saw very little action last year and are therefore too green to play consistently good basketball until they have a few games under their belt. Danka pairs with Jim Brown to form the guard dua, Frank Leonetti holds down the first-string center spot and Don Kirk and John Har well are the starting forwards. John Wilharm, a lanky left-hander up from last year’s JV squad, is being groomed to replace Danka, who graduates next month, and will see considerable action against the local quintet. Shaw will be idle for two weeks after tomorrow night’s contest, returning to action on December 29th, when they travel to Lima, Ohio for a holiday double header against Lima Central and Cincinnati Western Hills on suc cessive nights.

Paced by Dick Fort, who poured in 26 points, the Wisecupmen had an easy time with the defending cham pions. Reversing their procedure from that in the season opener when they just couldn’t connect, the Black and Red hardwooders dis played consistent accuracy from every part of the court, making good on 28 of their 72 shots. Fort tied his personal scoring mark of 26 which he established in tourna ment play last season and played the best game of his high school career. The Lakewood defense just couldn’t stop him as he connected on long shots, lay-ups and one handed push shots in addition to playing his usual defensive game. Eleven of his points came in the first quarter and his total output would have been higher if he hadn’t left the game for part of the third period to retire to the locker room for treatment of a blistered foot. Wisecup Clears Bench The Cardinals took a 22-10 lead at the first quarter and widened the gap to 35-15 at halftime. The local five continued their accurate shooting in the third stanza by adding 20 more points to take a 55-29 command going into the final period. Coach W’isecup used his entire 12-man squad in the fourth canto and the second stringers played the scrappy Rangers on even terms. Forward Dick Henderson netted 12 of his 14 points in the first half to mark the second straight game in which he tallied only two points in the second half. Junior Duane Gerasimos, who dumped in ten markers, and Tom Meinhardt performed very capably at the guard spots while Al Gray, the shortest man on the squad, at 5 ft. 8 in., repeatedly out-jumped his taller opponents on rebounds. Their overall performance in their league debut stamped the Cardinals as a likely successor to the crown held by Lakewood with Heights and Lorain expected to furnish the strongest opposition. The league definitely better balanced than last season when the Rangers domi nated the circuit by going unde feated in league competition. Elyria with two lettermen back from last year’s weak team, showed surprising strength by dumping Heights, 51-45. The Pioneers’ start ing five averages 6 ft. 2 in. and their backboard work is brilliant. The Shaw JV’s also chalked up an impressive victory, doubling the score on the visiting sophomores, 40-20. Center Tony Gilberto, who played an aggressive game, took scoring honors with 17 points. He was especially busy at the foul line free East Cleveland Has Its Evergreen Bowl Pasadena can have its Rose Bowl, Miami its Orange Bowl.
