(Press headquarters) --- --- Just moments after Davidson Coach Lefty Driesell helped his ace scorer Dick Snyder cut down the net in a wild celebration on the spacious Coliseum floor, the press row participants crowded into the press rooms under the big dome to hear what the rival coaches had to say about the championship game. They first: crowded around Lefty Driesell, who still had tears in his eyes for his remarks: "I wanted to prove something, he said~ A lot of people, some prominent people down here, said that after we lost Fred Hetzel we'd never win this thing. But we came through in fine style, rm proud of this ball club and you boys know it, looking around at the big gallery of sports writers. This has to be one of the greatest thrills of my ins upset the Harpers Ferry cage- rs and thereby permitted the Leon's Citgo team of Shepherds. town to move into a two-game lead in the Jefferson County Independent basketball league. It was a steal and driving layup by Jim Ross in the final seconds of play, which provided the mar- I gin of a 64-62 victory for the [Knights of Pythias in the final I of three games played Monday I evening, Feb. 2. [ The Knights of Pythias were the ropes But they got it back' down 14 points when they started and that's what champions are supposed to do. Bucky left no doubt in our mind about what he throught was the key factor in the game. It was a fellow by the name of S-N-Y-D-E-R. And, let me tell you Eastern Panhandle fans this; Waters doesn't like to lose -. but he proved to some 12,000 fans in the Coliseum last Saturday night that he can lose gracefully The victory for Coach Lefty Driesell was his first tour-' nament victory since coming to the small Presbyterian School in 1961 and now his Wildcats will Eastern Regional," We want to represent the Southern Confer- their comeback drive, and they just made it with only a few sec- onds to spare Roger Ramey, and Sam Taylor led both the fourth quarter surge for the Knights of Pythias and also the game scoring for their team. Ramey had 20 points and Taylor 11. The game's scoring hun ors went, however, to N0rvel Will is of Harpers Ferry, who had 23 points Individual scoring for the game for the K. of P. went as follows: Ramey 20, Taylor 11, Hammann and Ross 8 each, Benton and New from Kastle's Mens Shop, with Allen Mahoney setting a new lea- gue scoring record for Leon's by shoving in 37 points to lead his team to victory. He was follow team of Alumni as a warm-up game for Class-AA tournament play Friday night. The defeat was the 14th consecutive one for Shepherdstown who won only one game in 20 this season. Coach Jordan said he had to shift his starting line-up when Kenny Carr, the team's leading rebounder and one of its top scor- ers, and Run Puller, also a fine rebounded, left the team follow- ing a disagreement with Coach Jordan over policies which the team players are required to fol- low. Coach Jordan said Cart and Puller advised him they would quit the team unless he made concessions on certain team poli- cies. When the concessions were not forthcoming they turned in their uniforms. The Panthers held the Cardi- nals scoreless from the floor through the first period and it was only a pair of foul shots by John Crowl~ and two more by George Grantham in the closing seconds of the quarter which kept them from being blanked. Charles Town moved into a 134 first pe- riod lead and in the second quar- ter the Panthers really began to roll and widened their lead to the point that Coach Bill Jordan used substitutes sparingly. By halftime Charles Town was ou,: in front 35-17 and Henry Yates and Dewey Noland who replaced Kenny Carr and Run Puller in the Panther starting line-up after Carr and Puller had quit the team Friday, turned in fine per- formances. Yates, who was the team's sec. ond high scorer with 15 points, life". Then the group moved over to another corner of the room to hear what West Virginia's new Coach Bucky Waters had to say. "We came a long way back;' he said, and we went down with our guns smoking but it just wasn't enough. You have to pay tribute to Davidson's big and strong ball club, We took their momentum away when we pulled close 65-63 and I thought we had them on ence well up there, and my boys will battle their .opponents right down to the wire. Now that we have come this far. We just can't stop. We'll give them all we have and you be certain of that," . , , Good luck, Lefty...
