They will be tangling with the All- Stars once again Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in the JWAA tour- nament action in the Frederick County Junior High gymnasium in the fii'st of the two semi-final round games. In the second game it will he the Richmond Cavaliers and the Xerox All-Stars of Washington, D.C., at 3 p.m. Last year Ramey's battled some of the strongest semi-pro teams in the. country in the JWAA tournament and managed to make it to the semi-finals before losing a close battle to the Maryland All-Stars, by a 101-100 score. This year Ramey's and the Maryland Stars have both battled their way back into the semi-finals and will meet each other once again. And Roger Ramey, sponsor of Ramey's team, says this time he and his team feel they will be ready and strong enough to take the Contractors' Auction Notice THE 12TH ANNUAL WESTERN MARYLAND CON- STRUCTION EQUIPMENT AND TRUCK AUCTION will be held SAT., MARCH 18, 1978 at the Frederick Fairgrounds in Frederick, Md.

The Maryland Stars last season, after edging Ramey's, went on to win the tournament. The tournament finals and semi-finals were to have been played this past week, but the snowstorm which crippled just about everything that had been planned in the area, had to be postponed until this Saturday. From the semi-final round of play Saturday afternoon, the two winners will meet Saturday night to decide the tournament championship. Prior to the championship game, the two losers of Saturday afternoon will meet in a consolation game, which Ramey's won last year to finish in third place in the tournament of 18 powerful teams. Ramey's is being given a good chance to either move into the tournament finals, or even win it all this season. They moved into the semi-final round of play in fairly easy fashion with decisive victories. Making up the roster for Ramey's, are former Shepherd cage stars Larry Boomer, Gilberet Allen, Redney Sewell, Tim Brinkley, and for the games this Saturday, possibly even Chris Erichsen, who averaged 20 points per game for the Penn State Nittany Lions last season. The All-Stars, on the other hand, can call on guys like John Holleran and Pat Tallent 'George Washington'; ex- NBA'er Ollie Johnson and Bill O'Tey, last year's top defensive player in the tournament. Plus American's Lloyd Mayes, lightning quick Aubry Curry and Earl Hawkins, MVP in the tournament last year. The All- Stars are so loaded that Hawkins sat out the first 10 minutes of the All-Stars semi-final win. The Richmond Cavaliers may equal the All-Stars in name players with Aaron Stewart, Richmond; Fletcher Johnson, Randolph Macon; Rick Aydlett and Ralph Hunter, Virginia' Union. The Cavaliers scored a ll4-point victory in the semi- finals with a 101-point second half.   The Xerox All-Stars may not have the flash of other teams, but they've made it to the final four of the JWAA tournament each of the last three years. Cagers Lose To Glenville In Final Seconds There's an old saying that what happens twice, happens three times. And whether you believe it or not, the Shepherd Rams must by now be a believer, since what had hap- pened to them twice before this season, happened again Monday night on their home floor, when they got nipped right at the final buzzer by the Glenville College cagers by a 75-73 score. Twice before this season the Rams had lost out just at the sound of the final buzzer. Now it's three. The score was tied at -73 with Glenville's Ralph Ledbotter in possession of the ball and only seconds left on the clock. Led- better, the leading scorer in the W. Va. Intercollegiate Con- ference with a 20.3 average, wa the wrong person as far as Shepherd was concerned to have the hall and the Rams knew it. Coach Bob Starkey's boys moved out to make him shoot from a distance, but to no avail as Ledbetter fired away from 25- feet out and hit for the winning goal.
