Observation Post BY STAN PAKULA SporU Editor Junior Varsity Role A great many of the area hi gh school athletic teams have junior varsity squads which arc stocked with a (trout (lea o ! :aknt. However in many cases this talent is hidden m the ob, £ it> of n ' aving a secondarv role to fill out a squad that for all intents aliii ' , n ^ses are p layin g a minor lea,ue schedule. This »>m«r *a , rue ball is thought of , by interested sport observers , as a developin g giound for the var sity .p layers ol the luture. Iiut the thin line drawn between varsity and junior varsity p in vers is often bli.n .il by the unwillingness ol the coaches to recognize ability and reward it accordingly. From a quick scan of the various junior varsit y squads , wc see that many <>f the p layers are delegated to the jayvees because of class anil not abili ty. When we p layed in hig h school (or at. least attempted to play varsity ), we were often lost in the mass of sneakers try ing to make the grade. Our alma matei--Thomas Jefferson Hig h of Brooklyn- -was , and from last reports still is , a proving ground for some of the best basketball talent in the east and possibl y in the country. In fact, the starting team during my senior year went on to become the top scorers of their college teams. One excelled at North Carolina and is now p laying with Mitchel Air base ( Dave Gotkin). The otheis on that team and the colleges they starred at were: Boris Nachamkin (NYU ), .Jim Grant (Adel phi), Jerry Domershick (CCNY), Jerry Wax Brookl yn college) and Paul Shaw (Harvard). These p layers were weaned by Moach Mac Hodosblat and wentent on to bigger and betterer g lories When they all came downown for the fu st practiceractice , Stan Pakula Hodosblat and w on to bigger and bett g lories at college. When they all came d for the fu st p , potential ability and not whether a p layer was a sophomore or senior determined if the hoopster remained with the varsity or was farmed out to the jayvec for more seasoning. In fact , many seniors who never had enough ability, were cut and p layed their final year in school on the junior varsity. However, in some Suffolk schools , p layers are usually left on the junior varsity until they are juniors and then brought up to the parent team. Then it usuall y takes them about a year to adapt to u tougher type of ball since they have been taking it easy and scoring at will while on the jun ior varsity. Hence the full potential of the p layer is never realized—primaril y because he has been kept down on the faim too long. Bobby Hoffmann is a sinning example of how a p layer with po- tential can develop if he sees enough varsity action. Hoffmann is in his fourth year of varsity basketball at Bellport High and , in addition to being their leading scorer , is one of the top players in the county. True , some rules prohibit a freshman from p laying on the varsity, but we don ' t know of any such edict curtailing the pro- motion of a promising sophomore. Instead of taking the p layer ' s school year into consideration during opening practices , the coaches should take his name and only after the final cuts are made , get the vital data. And if a senior can 't make the grade , let him earn his minor letter with the junior varsity. This way lie won ' t hurt the varsity. Naturally, many critics of our plan will say a sophomore is inexperienced and that as bad as the senior is , he has experience. Poppycock. Experience without ability is worthless. Meanwhile , the green sophomore will be learning while gaining a valuable varsity education and , when his junior year rolls around , will be really worth his sweatsuit. So instead of spending his junior year feeling his way around, he would be able really to earn his letter. And the worthless senior , can finish his high school basketball days on the junior varsity or if his pride is hurt , as a spectator. The junior varsity should be a team of p layers who were not good enough to make the varsity—regardless of age and class. Con- versely, the varsity p layers should number the best 10-12 hoopsters in the school. Using this system , although defeats may p ile up during the. \ rebuilding '' stage , Will insure future success and prevent the excess naggiifte of no-talent seniors from hampering the success of any team. POSTMAN COMETH (Editor ' s Note: This lett er was received by the sports depart- ment, but the writer was too modest to divul ge his -name.) \The Patchogue High basketball team thai has an excellen t nucleus of five seniors , needs some tips , outside hel p or inside help, or assistant coaching-—or whatever!

Eagles Cop 2nd Straight Hoop Game By PHIL SCHUNK Coach Bob Cooney ' s Seton Hall Eag les , combin- ed speed with free throw accuracy to solidl y wallop St. Dominic ' s , 67-51 , Fri- day ni g ht . The victory was ihe Eagles ' sec- ond straight of this young season and appears to be a samp le of things to come for future Seton opponents. The Setonites bolted to a 18-12 lead mainly on the hot shooting of Charlie Hunt , Steve Young and Hemic Higgins. The lead swelled to 18 points at intermission as the Eagles continued their hitting while the Saints cooled. The second half continued with the same mode of operation as the Eagles maintained the edge they held right up until the final buz- zer. Scion ' s superiority was height- ened by deadly foul shooting which enabled the Setonites to mesh 215 of :J7 free tosses. St. Dominic ' s had a better foul shooting percentage— 13 of 22—but made 15 less trips to the foul stripe. The victory was the first for the Eagles in the Nassau-Suffolk Catholic Hi g h league and gives promise that the Setonites will be able to give St. Agnes (recent 96-44 winners over LaSalle) a tig ht for the championship. The Eag les will meet St. Mary ' s tomorrow night at the Gaels ' home court in another league game. Seton Hall (S7) 'St. Domlnic - 8- (51) O F P| C. F P Yutinit 5 li If, P.

On December 8 , Patchogue overpowered the Clippers ,; 73-46 and' East Islip made it two losses in a row for Bell port by a 51-42 score Friday. Play ing on Patchogue ' s court , the Clippers found the going rough from the very opening as the host team ' s offense appeared unstoppable. Patchogue showed amazing accu- ' racy from the floor , hitting from almost any spot of the court. This shooting gave the Raiders a comfortable 17-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Patchogue lead continued to increase during the remaining periods as Bell port didn^ -pose any threat after the firs t few moments of nlav. In the first half , most of the Clipper offense was provided by Hob Hoffmann and Kred Cherry Hoffmann tallied 1M points in tlic half while Cherry chipped in with 10. During the same half , though , the performances of Patchogue ' s Dean Chamberlain and Kay Weeks overshadowed those of the Heli- port duo. Chamberlain accounted for 1(1 points in the half while Weeks added 15. The game scoring honors went to Weeks who finished with a 22 point total followed by Chamberlain with 2(1 . Cherry and Hoffmann led the Clippers wifh 10 and 17 points respectivel y. Heli port lost its first league game of the season when it, travel- ed to East Islip Friday. Last, year ' s B-l champ ions had just enmur h offensive power to keep the Cli ppers out of range through- out the game. Both teams displayed little of- fense in the first period. East Islip managed only nine points but it gave the home team a work- ing margin as Bellport netted only three free throws during the same period . The Clippers bounced back in the second period cutting the lead to three points. Cherry was the p laymaker of this drive , setting up the offensive maneuvers from his baekeourt position. Art Wilm also aided the cause with his de- fensive rebounding. Trailing only lil-1 (\ . at half-time , the Clippers seemed on the up- swing. The hope was shortlived as Bell port met a revived East Islip five in the third period. Ed Rogoff and Ron Bardonek led this second half attack for the home team. Heli port' s scoring burden fell on the shoulders of Hoffmann who was unable to maintain the scor- ing pace established by the East Islip pair during the third quarter. Going into the ' final period , the home team enjoyed an 11 point lead. Cherry and Rick Hague sup- plied some Clipper offense in the period , but it came to late. East Islip slowed the game down as the team could afford to wait for the good shot. Several times Bell- port cut the lead to within five points only to have it enlarged again as the victors put together a good series of plays when their lead seemed in jeopardy. Bell port' s main problem in the game was a lack of offensive re- hounds . Wilm controlled the de- fensive backboard throughout most of the game , but on offense the Clippers were unable to get good position under the boards. Hoffmann and Bardonek shared the scoring honors with 18 points apiece . Rogoff proved to be the turning point of the game , scoring most of his 17 points in the second half.

Bayport High Cagers Suffer 1st Loop Loss By Gary Sheffield BAYPORT —Th e Bay- port Hig h basketball team managed to extend its win skein to three strai ght when the Phantoms beat Smith- town , 60-40 , this pa 'tet Week. However , this vic- tory skein was short-lived as the , Porters finall y met their masters when the Isli p quintet downed them , 38-30 . The Islip game was Bayport ' s first league encounter of the year. With three consecutive victories , the high-fly ing Porters expected to extend their win streak at Islip ' s expense. However , Islip proved a little more difficult to bea t than expected. Although the Porters led at the end of the first quarter , 9-8 , they knew they were in for . a tough struggle. Deliberate ball handling and slow p lay dominated most of the game. The Porters ' biggest difficulty was in getting the ball in to their big men in a position for a good shot . Both Hob Heitel and Cl y de Gul p were well guarded by tall Isli p defensemen and each player only tallied nine points , far below their average output. George El- liot , the Porter ' s other big man , was also stymied b y the Islip de- fense as he only garnered five points , his lowest score this sea- son. With all their big men well guarded the Porters had to resort to outside shooting. Both Field Adams and Cary Sheffield , the two baekeourt men , couldn 't hit con- sistently with their jump shots , so Bayport suffered its first defeat of the season. Richie Von Roch paced the Islip team to victory as he garnered 13 points. Johnny Burt and Bill Morris chipped in nine and ei ght points respectivel y to aid the Islip cause. Previous to their encounter with Isli p, the Porters met last year ' s A- . 'l champion , Smithtown. Having beate n Smithtown only once in the last six years , the Porters were really out for revenge . Both Gul p and Beitel found the Smithtown defense easy to penetrate as they scored 22 and 20 points respec- tivel y. This alone was enough to win as Smithtown onl y scored 40 points . However , Elliot , Adams and Sheffield all added six more points each to give the Porters a total of 00 points and their third consecutive victory of the season.

An overflow crowd was on hand as the locals were trampled bv the Golden Flashes , 62-41. The defeat was number three in four starts for the Raiders , who are 0-2 in Section A-2 league play. On the other hand , Sayville evened its season led ger at 2-2 and are tied for first p lace in league play with Amityville. Each has a 2-0 record. Patchogue looked anything but great. Hampered b y an effective sagging zone defense , at times man to man , the Raiders had trouble keeping the ball on the jj ourt albeit in the hoop. Pete Petty led the Raiders with 12 points. Dean Chamberlain and Gary Smith added 11 and nine points respectivel y. After taking- on Brentwood Tuesday, the locals of coach Cliff Ross will be back in action tomor- row ni ght against Bay Shore. The visiting Maroon are also 0-2 in leagu e play, bowing to Baby lon and Amityville. Game time is 7 p. m. for the preliminary game between the jayvees. Following this con test , the Red and Black face Isli p on the lat- ter ' s court on Tuesday. The junior varsities of both schools will open festivities at 7 p. m. Sayville settled the issue in the first quarte r as the Golden Flashes of coach Bob Hazen jumped to a 20-9 lead in this period and were never headed. Chamberlain came up with the game ' s first field goal. But Say- ville countered on a foul by George Robinson and a basket by Tom Brennan to take a 3-2 lead. Pett y ' s jump shot returned the lead to the locals. But a driving layup by Robmson gave the visi- tors the lead once again. Seconds later , two free throws by Ray Weeks gave the Raiders its final edge of the night as con- secutive baskets by Brennan and Robinson opened a 9-6 Sayville lead at the five minute mark. The final three minutes saw Sayville control p lay as the Golden Flashes outscored their rivals , 11-3. Bob Frederick joined Robinson and Brennan in the scor- ing column as this trio combined for 19 of Sayville ' s 20 points in the first quarter. Run-run-run was still the Say- ville theme as the visitors ran up the bul ge to 29-14 with two minutes to play in the first half. Patchogue continued very cold from the floor. Jerry Parks and Dale Corbett started to p itch in points , with each eager scoring four points along with the hot Brennan as the Golden Flashes walked off with a :«-18 halftime lead. Petty was the only Raider to hit with any con- sistency as the senior center scor- ed six of his team ' s nine points. Sayville switched to a man to man defense to start the second half. This the Raiders found easier to cope with . But their inabilit y to hold onto the hall prevented the Red and Black from cutting into the big Sayville lead. Still , the locals had a produc- tive third quarter , their best o r the game. Of the 13 shots at- tempted , seven went in p lus two free throws to give the Raiders 16 points. Chamberlain with five and Weeks , four led the Patchogue scorers. Although he scored only two points , Dan Derby played a good floor game. The Golden Flashes ' running tac- tics started to pay off in this , the final quarter , as the visitors in- creased their lead. At one junc- P ETE P ETTY ... garners 12 points ture , the Golden Flashes held a 23-point lead. The only thing in the mind of Patchogue rooters was whether or not the Raiders would break 40. They did by way of a jump shot by Smith with less than 15 seconds remaining in the one-sided con- test. Brennan wound up as high sco rer of the gam e with 19 points. He was closely followed by Rob- inson with 16 while Parks caged 11 for the victorious Golden Flashes. Overall shooting saw the visi- tors make 25 of 65 from the -floor added to 12 of 24 from the foul line. The Raiders connected for only 17 of 52 field goal attempts and sank onl y seven for 16 .in fouls. Sayyille (62) ; Patchogue (41) G F Pi G -F ;P Brennan 8 3 191 Weeks 2 2 • 6 Van E'folilt 0 0 0 !
