Rushville caers come hero thls Friday night for two games and if the battles betwee these two teams are like those of the the fans will again get a run for their money. First g at 7. mmmmmmmm "Farmer" (Coach) Car roll Wood came to town Friday night i with his strong Normal Commun- ity high cage team, riding on the crest of an eight-game win- ning streak that was broken by i his former proteges when he was at Pulaski high a couple of years !ago. The Hilltoppers won a 63- !54 decision. (Coach Wood is retiring this season to take up farming.) Pulaski, through some brilliant work and redhot shooting in the first three quarters, built up a comfortable margin at the half, of 36-17, and went into the fourth quarter with a 50-29 lead, only to see it dwindle away so fast when Normal hit a hot streak and seemingly scored at will with only the time running-out giving fans any assurance that the avalanche might be stopped in time. Normal outscored the Hilltoppers 25 to 13 in the final period of play. Even First Quarter Normal broke the ice when Campbell scored from the side. Dittus was fouled and made one : of two, good. Thorp rebounded to give Normal a 4-1 lead, but " sank one from center while Thorp got a free one. Ey came right (continued on page 12) t i IH I tl tt t I t It's the Hard Wayl If Pulaski high's cage team is to enter a sectional tourney this season they are going to have to do it the hard way. All [they have to do is whip Lincoln, then the Springfield Senators in the regional at Wfl- liamsville. There can be no griping about the pairings at Williamsville for the rating looks correct. Had PU-. laski polished off Springfield, here, a short time ago, the local would have merited second plae and thus been in the lower bracket with much weaker com, petition. Pulaski and Lincoln are in the upper bracket and play the first night. Lincoln takes on Williams- ville, while Pulaski tangles with Atlanta. So it looks like Pulaski and Lincoln will again battle it out for a place in the semi-rin- " ii:!! als. Springfield gets the break by being the No. 2 team for their competition in the lower bracket is quite weak. Tri-City, Riverton, and the winner of the district at Armington {Hartsburg - Emde is in this and will probably coIe thru.) So it looks like Pulaski cager have the toughest assignment in the tourney for they must first whip Lincoln, No. 8 team in the state, and then the Springflekl entry (IF). All Springfield has to fear is Lincoln, while Lincoln will have to 'oncentrate on Pu, laski as well as Springfield, for Pulaski has been one of the two teams in the state to whip , coln this year. Lincoln has pol, ished Springfield once this sea. son. The regional starts Feb. 2"?, ends March 2. The sectt0nal, March 7.9, and the state fln March 14-17.
