Page 4 College Station, Texas Wednesday, January 5, 1966 THE BATTALION Trippet Boosts Ags Over SM urn By LARRY R. JERDEN Battalion Sports Editor Terry Trippet hit 17 pdints in the last 12 minutes and 17 sec onds to boost the Aggies to an 85-78 victory over SMU in both teams’ opening Southwest Con ference game Tuesday night. A G. Rollie White crowd of 4,- 500 watched the Cadets take over the lead with 6:56 left on a Trip pet jump shot after trailing for all but a few minutes of the game.

The sophomore forward’s scor ing spree began with a layup and an assist from John Beasley to bring the Ags within one point of the Mustangs, 57-56. Less than a minute later, he stole the ball and broke for another layup to tie the score at 59-59. With the partisan crowd on its feet, Trippet hit the jump to put the Ags ahead for the last time, then went on to finish his late scoring spree which included sev en points from the free-throw line to give him a total of 19 points for the evening, pitting him second to Beasley who pumped in 25. Beasley’s scoring came most ly in the first half when he made 19 points, and suffered in the sec ond as he sat out the final six minutes with five fouls to his name. The first half belonged almost exclusively to SMU, and though the Ags led three times and man aged to tie the score on five occasions, the Mustangs led at the half 46-42. A&M had four men in double scoring figures. Dick Rector, playing with a nose guard to protect an injury suffered in the Xavier game, hit 10 points and Eddie Dominguez pumped in 12 to round out the top four behind Beasley and Trippet. All-SWC selection Carroll Hooser led the Mustangs’ losing effort with 19 points and was aided by four of his teammates who also hit in double figures. In rebounds it was again Beas ley leading both teams with 12, while Randy Matson and Dick Stringfellow had eight apiece. The Aggies won the game as much on the boards as anywhere else, outrebounding the Ponies 48-23. This enabled the Cadets to overcome the SMU shooting per centage from the floor. In the first half the Mustangs hit 58.1 per cent and ended the night with 57.1 while the Ags were able to muster only a 41 per cent mark during the first half but came back in the second to finish with a 47.8 mark. SMU displayed a smooth of fense, with good ball control and a number of weave-pass-dribble combinations called from the floor. They were never able to open any kind of a sizable mar gin, but seemed to have the game under control most of the time. The victory by A&M was one of a scrappy team bent on victory overcoming height, speed and sharp shooting in the final min utes. As the team relaxed in the dressing room, the most obvious expression on everyone’s face was a smile. Said Eddie Domin guez, “We never lost our confi dence during the game. They had the lead, but during the sec ond half we thought they looked like they were tiring. You can’t run on them, but since they look ed tired, we took the chance and ran them. It worked.” “Coach had us in good shape, and we’ve been in two-a-days (workouts) since the Oklahoma City tournament,” he added. Rector smiled as a drop of sweat left his chin and said, “It feels a lot better to be back in the winner’s circle. That’s where we belong!” “We have a lot different atti tude now,” said Beasley, “es pecially now that this game is over. We just decided to win in that second half, and we did.” Matson, commenting on the team’s feelings during the game, said, “We were behind for most of the game, but no one got wor ried until they kept with us dur ing the second half. We felt that we'd go ahead just any minute, that a certain something would happen that usually does, and we just were waiting for it to hap pen. It finally did and we won.” Matson said he felt he has more confidence now that the season is underway, and that the little things in playing basket ball are returning to him. This, he commented, has probably made him a bit more aggressive on the court than earlier in the season, and lets him be more sure of his actions. “Trippet is a real competitor,” said Head Coach Shelby Metcalf after the game, “and he did an exceptionally fine job tonij “But, he added, “this win night was a true team efft No one could really be said stand out above any of the ers. I will say one thing thoi we’re not going to win many games with John (Beasley) ting on the bench!” Tide Whoops It Up Over Winning No. 1 1 i DON’T DON’T DON’T MIND MIND MIND EITHER 4 meeting of the don’t minds If you don't mind having all the details of planning a banquet or convention taken care of for you, call Ramada Inn.

RAMADA INN Bryan-College Station 846-8811 TUSCALOOSA, Ala. <A>) _ Alabama’s Crimson Tide whoop ed it up Tuesday after learning they were voted the national football champions for the second consecutive year. They immedi ately set their sights on making it three in a row. None was more jubilant than Coach Paul Bear Bryant, who apparently tossed and turned while The Associated Press final poll votes were being tabulated overnight. He arose at 3 a.m., learned ’Bama was voted No. 1 for the third time within five years, and hustled over to the athletic dor mitory to post this note on the dining room door: ‘Just notified. Congrats na tional champions. Paul Bryant. P. S. Let’s start working today to make it three in a row.” No. 1 ranked Michigan State lost to UCLA in the Rose Bowl, 14- 12, and previously No. 2 Arkan sas was dropped by Louisiana State in the Cotton Bowl, 14-7. Bryant’s team, which had what he called the lightest lineup and most powerful offensive unit he ever coached, swamped Nebraska in the Orange Bowl, 39-28, New Year’s night. Nebraska had been No. 3. Bryant avoided any personal credit for this third national championship since 1961. “I’m proud and happy, of course, and particularly proud for the seniors and assistant coaches who deserve the lion’s share of the honor,” Bryant said. “It makes me very thankful for the people that were responsible for it.” Arm yourselS with facts about DuPont These booklets helped influence some 863 new technical gradu ates of all degree levels to join us in 1964.
