Zamberlan laud flee outstanding efforts of the greatest of ~ll Cha- rles Town High basketball ea,ms .the 1967-68 squad which won 27 consecutive games before heing stopped just one game sh~t of a state championship. Coach Zamberlan said his boys iust didn't have quite enough off- ensive punch left in the champion ship game to offset the grea(~ man to,man defensive play of Cdae Cer- edo-Kenova Wonders. Zamberian said his Pan~hers had nat run into very much de- fense in it's regular season sche- dule, and none as fast and a'ggres sive as the C-K teszn. He said his team had i-oiled all season on control of both ,the offensive and defensive boards, plus an over- powering offense wi~h his two big boys, Patti Johnson and Larry Oarr, working from ,the inside and John Lorenz, Bob Appeil and Alex, as the outside power. And this plan ~f 'b~t~le w~rked fine he said, until the Panthers hit the Ceredo-Kenova defense and R became ahnost impossible to get the ball to John son and Carr. He also gave much credit to the .great otttslde shoot- ing of the C.K cornermen, particu lary in the second period of .the battle. Zamberlan said he plans o work his boys hard next season on two types of defense - mamto .man and a one4wodwo shiRing zone, overloaded against the rope sRion. He made the prediction that the 196849 Panther cage ,team wil,1 'be another great one, and that he feels they will have another shot at the state crown next season. He thanked ,the Chamber for the fine home-com- ing reception it had arranged for the team when it arrived back from Charleston, and also for the tes~monial dinner which it has arranged for the players, their parents and the ,sclm~l cheerlead- ers, who were selected as the TURN TO 4--& STEWART UDALL John S.
