Page 10 - THE OTHELLO OUTLOOK OTHELLO. W HNNI THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1974 The Othello Huskies, who have already shown they are vastly improved over local cage squads of recent years, will be facing their first crucial test of the season this Friday when they head for Omak to take on the powerful Pioneers - a team that is clearly the favorite to win the North Central Washington League Crown in its first year of Class AA competition. With a 72-67 victory over the OHS Alumni last Saturday boosting their record to 6-2, the Huskies will be playing their opening conference game at Omak on Friday night and then play host to neighboring Royal in a return contest back home next Tuesday. One of Best "We know we will be facing probably the best AA team in Eastern Washington on Fri- day night," Preuninger said. "There is no doubt they are good and we'll be happy to stay with them. If we play like we have in a couple of games here in December I feel we can beat them." Preuninger called the atti- tude of his squad toward the game "excellent", and said they realized they'll be in for a tough contest "The kids are excited about the game and came to me and asked if they could practice on New Year's Day instead of having the day off," the coach reported. Pioneers Unbeaten The Pioneers, who have rolled up an 8-0 record during their December squad, lost only one starter off the team that finished second last year in the State Class A tourn- ament. The Pioneers feature both excellent heighth and speed and Preuninger reports the only thing they have res- embling a weakness is depth. Steve Freimuth and Ted Bratrude, both 6-5, give the Pioneers outstanding under- board strength, with 6-3 Don rl McCormack, the quarterback OTHELLO star of the Omak league- Para championship team, a potent Stephens Goodwin outside shooter. Floor-leader Kostad is speedy 5-10 Billy Gunn. Skogley ttuskie scouting reports Ruth Moliotte show the Pioneers play Nield man-to-man defense almost Capps exclusively and use the fast TOTALS break as one of ~heir big ALUMNI offensive weapons.

In Weible that contest the Huskies were Coffman Beer forced into an overtime to sal- S.Para vage a victory. "We think we are better than we showed in that opening game, and have hopes of getting a big win," Preuninger said. The Knights have posted only two victories against prednminently Class A competition to date this season. Beat Alums The Huskies led all of the way against the Alumni in the contest here last Saturday, but had to hang on as the Alums came close with a late rush. "I was pleased to get the victory, but disappointed with some of our play," Preuninger said. "The kids weren't as sharp as they had been in some earlier games." The ttuskies had a 36-21 lead at halftime in the contest, but then slowed up in the second half. With scoring leader John Capps, who had 23 points for the night, fouled out, and regulars Roger Nield and Richard Mollotte with four personals each, the Alumni closed to within five late in the game. ttowever, Greg Goodwin came through with several key baskets in the fourth period to keep the tiuskies in front. Preuninger also praised Gary Skogley for one of his top games with 10 rebounds.

Ist 488-2047 PLAYMAKER Junior Paul Stephens, who has developed into a top playmaker for the Huskies this season, eyes the basket as he drives during a recent game here. Stephens is expected to be in the starting lineup when the Huskies face the tough Omak Pioneers at Omak this Friday. A strong Alumni rally in the final minutes of the first half made the difference here Saturday night as Coach Gene Bard's junior varsity had its season record slip to 6-2 in a 64-47 loss. The Pups led through the early stages of the game and held a five-point margin with three minutes to go in the second quarter. Paced by I . Steve Para and Bering Weible, the Alumni suddenly caught fire as they out-scored the }ups 13-1 and jumped into a 6-26 halftime lead they kept e remainder of.the game. \lthough he expressed dis- ~intment over the loss, reported he felt the was good for his team. 'ayed about 20 minutes ball and it was good for : to go against the ~1 ~k~layers." Drawing praise from the coach were freshman Todd Burton with 10 rebounds and five blocked shots and Kenny Pecka and Wendy Goodwin with five assists each.
