WINSTON-SALEM STATE UNIVERSITY
By JOHN MARTIN
RAMS SLAY FALCONS
The Rams, the leaders of the
Southern Division of the CIAA,
went on the warpath and defeated
the St. Augustine Falcons, the
number 2 team of the Southern
The first half went rather slow
until the Falcons broke the mono
tony and took a 6 point lead. The
Rams came back and took an 8
point halftime lead 48-40.
In the second half the Falcons
came back to within 4 points of
the lead but from there the Rams
blasted their lead to 20 points. Earl
Williams was doing it, Sandy
Smith was doing it, Ralph Jones
was doing it, and Bobby Garner
got a piece of the Rock too.
The remainder of the game went
with the score going up and down.
Although the Falcons outscored
the Rams in the see-saw con
test, the Rams had the advantage.
When the final buzzer went off, it
meant a victory for the Rams.
It also meant they were still num
Earl Williams was the high man
and high rebounder with 32 points,
18 rebounds. He was followed by
Sandy Smith who had 29 points—
9 rebounds, Arthur Chavious 16
points — rebounds, Ralph Jones
15 points—3 rebounds, Bobby Gar
ner 10 points—9 rebounds.
The Rams conference record is
10-4, and yes, they are still number
The Rams defeated the Pirates
of Hampton Institute in overtime
96-89 after what had once seemed
to be a Ram run away. Before the
half, the Rams lead the Pirates by
as many as 10 points. One minute
the Rams were leading 24-14, the
next minute the score was tied, 24
all. From this point the Rams
began making initial contact with
the goal and boosted their lead
43-31 to end the half.
In the second half, the Rams
continued doing good with key
field goals coming from Arthur
Chavious and Harold (Funny) Kitt.
The Rams 12 point halftime lead
zipped to a 20 point lead 71-51.
Then all of a sudden the Rams got
cold again. Within a couple of
minutes the score was 79-70. With
a quick revolution of the clock the
score was 80-79 with only 30 sec
onds to play. The Rams had pos
session of the ball, but lost it when
Chavious was called for travelling.
Having control of the ball the Pi
rates went for that one shot. Then
it was finally passed to Wally Mar
tin (No. 10) who had already hit
about 90'7(' of his shots to shoot
the desperation shot. The shot was
good and the Pirates led, 81-80.
The clock was stopped with 2 sec
onds left due to an offensive foul
on the Pirates. The field goal prior
to the foul was good and it was up
to Bobby Garner of the Rams to
either win it, tie it or lose it on a
one and one situation. Garner’s
first shot was good and it was a
tie ball game. The second shot was
no good and the teams went into
In overtime, Sandy Smith stole
the ball from Wally Martin and
scored, immediately. The Pirates
scored to retie the game. Then
Chavious came back and scored on
a 20 foot jumper (“The Chavious
Special”) to make the score 85-83.
Then Sandy went in for a lay-up
and was fouled to complete a 3
point play and the score was 88-
The Rams went on to score 8
more points to the Pirates’ 6 to
win 96-89. This game taught the
Rams that no team is assured of a
victory, and that sometimes the
better team does not always win.
By virtue of this loss, the Pirates
remained in last place of the North
ern Division of the CIAA with a
record of 1-10. Tlie Rams remain
ed in first place of the Southern
Division with a 9-4 record.
