Spencer Named AII-WVIAC Cager Shepherd College center Joe Spencer was named to the All- West Virginia Conference basketball team, and two other Rams were voted Honorable Mention spots, according to WVIAC Commissioner Mike McLaughlin. The 6' 5" Spencer, who hails from Annapolis, Md., led the WVIAC with a .676 shooting percentage while averaging 19.3 points and 10.8 rebounds a game for the 20-8 Rams. Twice during the season he scored 28 points; in the Ram's first round playoff games he netted 11 of 11 field goal attemps. Only three other collegians, nationwide, topped his shooting percentage. "Joe was the key to our suc- cess this year", commented Ram coach Bob Starkey. "He was very steady and reliable. His consistency gave the other players confidence and helped us as a team. Knowing Joe was inside made it easier to be patient on offense and get the good shot". Spencer, who led the Rams in scoring 21 times and in rebounding 17 times, finished second, behind Fairmont State star Vance Carr, in balloting for WVIAC Player of the Year. Also named to WVIAC All- Conference teams were fresh- man guard Buttons Walker and sophomore forward Chuck Hipp. Walker led the Rams in assists, averaging 5.7, and Hipp averaged nine points and six rebounds a game. 12 Jeffe00n Co.
