Who’s going to win the Northern Division college
basketball race? That's the big question among many of
_ the sports fans these days . . . and apparently most of
them feel that there are just two teams in the contest.

and Washington State . . .

coaches. Washington’s Huskies may be on the upswing

After thoroughly shaking all the names in our batter

The Huskies, like the Cougars, are going to have to
depend on a bunch of youngsters to get their victories.
As the varsity stands now, there won’t be a senior on the
starting line-up. Three juniors, headed by Captain LaDon
Henson, will team with a pair of sophomores to form the
‘first five. Henson and Russ Parthemer will handle the for
ward positions, and Louis Soriano and sophomore Frank
Guisness will be the guards. Duane Enochs all six fag
five inches of him, will be the varsity center. . if
There isn’t too much experience here, but Bert Rosie,
their publicist, says they’ll have bettcilhunit speed than
last‘=-year’s~' fiVe'and'pO‘SSibly one of fastest Husky
teams since pre-war days. ‘5 .
Our scribbling friend over at Wasiiington State col
lege, Dave Stidolph, is really working his. brain overtime ‘
these days. .
, Not satisfied with all the publicity that Gene Conley .
is getting the Cougar cage team, Stidolph has been dream- 3
ing up a little extra on the side. The other day he stood ‘
Conley up against the wall and had Gene measured. As ‘
_-.a _léqsult they, found out that the whiz kid is 6’ 8” tall, .
”so ‘6’?”s‘3 everyone had thought.
_ You’ve heard a lot of. stories about the big tussle ‘
over which school was going to get Conley . . . but did
you know that he came within a question mark of going
to the University of Washington. All that Husky cage
coach Art McLarney had to do was ask Gene if he would
be interested in attending Washington. But he passed it 3
up . . . and it goes without saying that he’s sorry now. 1
_, ,\ , ,0. F. Davis offiichland. is our authority for McLar- I
~ ney’s opportunity, and'Bavis should know, because he was :
there Sharlie. Davis, ever alert to cage court talent took I
a team from Richland to Seattle, including Conley. Davis
had previously prepared McLarney about the wonder he ‘
was bringing over and the Husky coach sat on the bench ‘
throughout the game keeping a keen eye peeled on Con
ley’s performance. -
Whathemdmpressed him . . . but plenty. But de- 3
spite thenrgmgbrmvis, he failed to open a conversation ;
about college education and what a wonderful place the 5
University was. ;
For those of you who don’t know Conley, such a gab- '
test would never be started by him. It’s just not his .
nature. He’s a very retiring individual when the conversa- ‘
, tion, £9!!ch his, exploits on the court of‘ baseball
diamond? :_ . -~ - 3
77 Many "cdaches have passed up similar chances . . ..
however, McLarney won’t be able to forget this one for the
next_thl_'ee_3{egrs_at least. 7

Richland Bombers Bow To Mac-hi 31-29
Pasco Bulldog; Loggigjgjkima 53- 34M
Missed Free
Toss Gives
Aflquilf +4
MILTON, Ora, Dec. 9 (Special)
A missed free throw at the bas
lget 13y _Wilmelj Meicenheimer of
the Richland Bombers sent the
game here tonight into an over
time period and an eventual vic
tory for Mac-Hi by the score of
Meicenheimer’s shot came with
two seconds left to play and the
score knotted at 27 all. Richland
got one field goal in the over
time, but were unable to stop the
onrushing host team, who poured
two through the hoop for a re
venge victory. When the two
teams met last week Richland
was the one-sided victor by a
43-29 count.
A heavy foul count, 28 in all,
hurt Art Dawald’s Bombers.
'_l‘hre9 91 file starting five werg
benched. Frank Schermer and
Alton Schell got the thumb in
the third quarter. Gene Keller,
who paced the Bombers with 12
points, got the gate in the final
period as did Meicenheimer.
Richland got away to an early
lead and held it all the way until
wthe closing minutes of the game
‘when Mac-Hi, continually hitting
for pay dirt managed to tie up
the contest. The Bombers had a
9-5 edge at the end of the first
period, but Mac-Hi shaved it to
14-13 at halftime. They came
back to the courts and held the
Bombers to a 19-18 count at the
end of the third quarter.
The small court seemed to
bother the offensive game of the
Bombers. Time and time again
they lost tlfi ball when the of
ficials called a ‘running’ foul on
the players. Dawald’s boys,
coached to play a close guard
ing defense style of play, also
got in trouble when the officials
called many fouls on this count.
The Richland “B" squad, how
ever, managed to save some
measure of triumph for ‘3‘:
Bombers by downing the Ma - i
junior-varsity 36-20. They led
all the way and held a 20-11
edge at halftime. -
