Haskctball quints rcpresent
ii>K tlie I-nl 1st on, Waco and
Shelby school,s survived the first
round of tlir annual county
wide basketball tournament in
the tin ean here Wednesday
Fail'dou deieuted Casus 41 to 7;
Waco stopped Mooresboro 38 to 18
and ShelUjk barely nosed otfl Lat
timoro 17 to 16.
Tlu- lift,thin# play In tin; three
games on the opening night was
thrilling throughout with the uip
and-tuek struggle between Laui
mole ami Shelby offering the great
est thrill. Several individual per
formers and some freak playing
claimed a considerable share of the
limelight, however, s
The three outstanding Individual
performers before the big crowd in
the tin can were W. Clay, Fallstoii.r
Dead-Eye Dick; Cant. Shorty Mc
Swaltt or the Shelby quint, and
Martin, Lattimore guard
Clay, the Pull.ton forward, got a
good lead on other players in the
tournament by shooting 19 points in
his first night’s play. Young Clay
tossed eight field goals and three
fouls in the basket. With his goal
shooting setting a pare for the Pall
ston five his team became n dark
hor.te threat for the county title.
Shelby’s one-point, win over Bal
timore hinged to a great exten*
about the magnificent floor play of
the blonde captain. Time and time
again he retrieved the ball when it
seemed headed for the LattimoTe
basket and in addition to his floor
war! he led the Shelby team in
scoring. Martin, the flashy Lafti
tnore guard, bore the brunt of his
team s defensive play as well ns
scoring six points to tie with Brooks,
a forWAiti, for Baltimore scoring
Ml MI'llt umils,
In Kullston's 41 to 7 victory over
Ctwar the Casar quint failed to score
a single field goal, all seven points
being checked up trom the free shot
In Waco's victory over Moores
boro Howell, forward. led the scor
ing with 10 points. Cline came next
with eight points. DePriest with
eight points topped the Mooresboro
Williams of Pa list on ranked next
to W. Clay Ut scoring with eight
points, white Self, a guard, tossed
In three of Coaai 7 points.
, Fast Play.
The Shelby-Lattimore game, the
big game of the opening evening,
was a nerve-wracking affair from
whistle to whistle. One team would
snap in a goal and forge ahead,
then the other quint would unleash
un offensive drive that resulted in a
goal and the lead switching. Lat*l
more retained a tea.) iho major por
tion of the evening, but a final
spurt in the closing minutes of the
game by Eskridge, R. Brown end
Connor sent Shelby one point up.
The scoring plays were no; the onlv
ones which produced thrills. It was
out on tlic floor amid a rapid past
ing attack, clever dribbling* and
speedy covering on the deiense that
Davis. Lattimore center, and Mc
Swaiu. Shelby forward, spurred
their quints into freneled effov's.
Botli plays, incidentally, were re
moved from the game, for personal
