Page 4 College Station, Texas Wednesday, February 21, 1968 THE BATTALION Fish Edge Tyler 73-71 In OT By JOHN PLATZER With only nine seconds left in overtime. Bill Cooksey nursed in a 22 foot jump shot to bring the Tyler Apaches, number three ranked junior college team in the nation, down to earth 73-71 last night in G. .Rollie White. COOKSEY had a chance to end the game in regulation time but his last second shot rolled around the rim and then out. A&M Huddle Picks Officers Tyler, which was 27-1 on the year and riding the crest of a 26 game win streak, played the game without the services of 6-3 fresh man guard James “Poo” Welch who is fighting the flu. Welch is averaging 20 points a game and has been considered one of the leaders of the team. The Texas A&M Huddle chap ter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes held new elections re cently at the A&M All Faiths Chapel. Elected to lead the chapter was the Student Senate president, footballer Jerry Campbell. Four vice presidents, representing four different sports were elected. They were: David George, swim ming; Edd Hargett, football; John Heffner, track; and Ozzie Burke, handball. Other positions in the chapter are: Jack Whitmore, secretary; Chris Conley, publicity chairman; and Jim Kazmierski, song leader. The Huddle will be provided added leadership froan Professor Arthur Smith as pastor leader and Barney Welch, layman leader. San Jacinto Junior College, rated number one in the nation in their class, provided Tyler with their only other defeat. That loss was later made up when the Apaches beat San Jacinto in Tyler. COACH Jim Culpepper’s Fish won the game with balanced scor ing as they placed four men in double figures. Cooksey and Chuck Smith led with 18 apiece followed by Roddy McAlpine with 13 and Danny Berry with 12. Smith continued his hot shoot ing from the field, he had en tered the game hitting at 63.6 per cent, connecting on 8 of 13 for the game. JIM BROOKS, the big 6-8 cen ter who is one of only 10 junior college players in the nation to be invited to the Olympic try outs, rammed home 38 points, 29 of them in the second half, to pace Tyler’s offense. Bill Chatman contributed 13 and Jess Marshall had 11 for the Apaches. Cooksey scored 14 of his points in the first half as the Fish threatened to make a runaway of the game but then had to hold on as Tyler came roaring back. A jumper by Cooksey gave A&M a 2-0 opening lead which they constantly built upon in the contest’s first 20 minutes. THEY knocked seven points off their deficit in the first three minutes of the second half and whittled the margin down to 53- 48 with 8:23 remaining. Tyler came within two for the first time since early in the con test at 54-52 with 6:47 left but the Fish then quickly surged back to a five point advantage. The 20 foot jumpers by Harvey Huffstetler knotted the game for the first time at 62-62 with 1:34 left and that’s how the score read at the end of regulation time. Steve Niles once again paced the Aggies in rebounding with 12 while Cooksey followed with 10. THE LEAD was stretched to 14 points at 30-16 with 3:35 left in the half and then to 35-18 with 2:25 remaining. The half ended with the Fish on top 37-20. Tyler played the first half like anything but the team they are rated to be as none of their play ers could find the range. They connected on 8 of 41 floor shots in the half for a horrid 19.5 per cent while the Fish hit on 17 of 37 for 45.9 per cent. The Fish also out rebounded the Apaches in the half by a 32-23 margin. The second half was a complete turn around of the first as Tyler dominated the backboards to THE FISH jumped to a fast 69-64 lead in overtime but Tyler came battling back and a jumper by Brooks gave them their only lead in the game at 70-69 with 1:29 remaining. The game was tied at 71-71 when Cooksey con nected for his winning goal. The big story of the second half was in rebounding where the junior college team outdid the Aggie freshmen 39-12. For the game Tyler enjoyed a 62-44 edge in rebounding. Brooks paced the Tyler re bounding with 16 while Chatman had 15 and Marshall contributed 14. , T i f, / PERET DRIVES Ag-gie Center Ronnie Peret drives under the basket and starts a jump shot goal ward dut ing third-quarter play.

The Houston match will begin at 1:30 on the McGregor Courts about six blocks from the Univer sity of Houston campus. G.
