Frazier a pit- for New York Yankees, out his name in league baseball's history books in the Series of 1981 by being the only major pitcher to lose three games in a world TO SPEED UP GAME--During a of the pros and cons of the "slow and stall tactics which are being utilized of the college and university basketball these days, to be more specific the more eight minutes of ball control and stalling in North Carolina-University of Virginia game afternoon, our good friend Henry came up with a suggestion o how to game moving at a fast pace all the way. a prominent Charles Town attorney, the stalling situation from a legal advocates giving the victory of any to the first team that scores 75 points. Un- Morrow's theory a team still would have the of slowing the game down if so but in so doing would eliminate its chan- of winning. Stalling, using the four-corner and or controlling the ball in an effort to down the tempo of the game by a team the lead in a game, is not something new.

A FORMIDABLE FOE FOR WVU--When West Virginia University basketball team to the floor tonight-Thursday-in Western NCAA play in Logan Utah, they will be a very formidable foe in North Carolina's cagers, champions of the Mid-Eastern Conference. According to stories in the Greensboro (N.C.) Daily News good friend C. Manning Smith brought to us when he returned from attending the Cost Conference Tournament in Green- the Aggies are big, fast and tough. The defeated Howard University of District in the tournament finals to win the berth in Logan Utah in a game which saw of fisticuffs in the waning minutes. The defeated Howard 79-67 in a close and The Aggies will take a 19-8 into the tournament against the Moun- who show a 26-3 mark. It was Eric a freshman guard, who led the Aggies to victory over Howard. He scored 16 points, assists and controlled the flow of action the before he fouled out of the game play remaining. The Jefferson High School basketball team may well be on the way to the state tour- nament in Charleston the week of March 22. What appears to have been the most substantial road- block standing in the way of the Cougars was cleared Tuesday night when Coach Charlie Scott's charges defeated Martinsburg High, 71-69, in a real nail biter at shepherd College before a capacity crowd. Now, Jefferson  tangle with winless Hedgesville tonight (Thursday) at 7:30 at Sara Cree Hall at Shepherd- stown. It should win this one without ny great effort. Then next week, scheduled for Saturday, March 20, the Cougars will play the winner of the Keyser-Hampshire game (not yet played) for the regional title at the Mar- Inshorg High School Field House at 7:30. The victor there (and it should be Jefferson for they defeated both Keyser and Hampshire during regular season play) advances to state tournament competition. In beating Murtinsimrg, the Cougars belied their underdog role and proved, in a real team effort, that they are capable of coming from behind to win. At one point in the .second hag, Jefferson was down by 10 points and it appeared talent. laden Martinsburg was going to eliminate the Cougars for the second successive year. But the bards weren't reckoning With the sharp- shooting of senior Roy Ban- joman, who hit consistently from the perimeter and wound up the evening leading all scorers with 28 points. Banjoman wasn't alone. Mike Gore helped keep Cougar chances alive with a string of baskets frmn about 15 feet out in the first half. Donald Jenkins dropped in some timely baseline buckets. And Bruce Smith came off the bench to score one crucial, basket on an offensive rebound. Curtiss Hosby and Carlton Branson played their usual fine floor game. Both coaches agreed, af- ter the game, that it was anybody's game to win. But on this particular night, when Martinsburg chose to stick to a zone defense, the Cougar's big guns, led by Banjoman, were hitting from outside, and you can't stop that kind of barrage. For Martinsburg, Robert Taylor, playing his final game for the Bulldogs, performed superlatively, directing the attack and scoring a total of 26 points. Sidney Williams had 17, Bruce Fowler, a junior guard, poured in 14. Ironically, both Mar- finslmrg and Jefferson now own 17-5 records. Jefferson, however, hopes to improve that mark: and should, at least in its next two scheduled contests. Last week, Jefferson picked up a pair of victories, defeating Hedgesville, 11066; then avenging an early season loss by trimming Bishop Walsh of Cumberland, 65-47. The Jefferson jayvees wound up their season with a fine 17-3 record, picking up two wins last week. The Little Cougars trimed Hedgesville, 61-46, they outlasted Bishop Wal in overtime, 47-45.
