Page Four THE SENATOR March 19,1965 Lions bring home Borah's mighty hoopsters tate trophy broke past a stubborn Twin quintet 55-51 to claim he State A-1 Championship last Saturday night at Pocatello. Twin garnered the runner-up trophy while Caldwell troun- ced Blackfoot for third place honors. The trophy is the first of its kind to enter the halls of Borah and also falls into the hands of an area that has not had the number one team for 15 years. The Lion squad (also rated number one by the AP poll) finished the season with an out- standing 24-1 record, the best in Borah's history. Borah managed to hold the lead most of the way, but Twin never fell far behind until the final moments. G:try Freeman bucketed 8 field goals and hauled down 16 re- bounds to pace the Lion victory, while Jack Smith added 14 points and took down 14 rebounds. Jim Hill tossed in 13 points and Dick Danleis chipped in 12. Although only scoring 5 points, Steve Preece led the Lion de- fensive efforts. George Smith led the Bruins with 18 points, while Kirk Wil- liams (voted SIC most valuable player) canned 17 to assist Smith. LIONS CONQUER VIKINGS Borah squeezed past Coeur d'Alene 55-52 in the semi-finals March 12. The Vikings retired to the locker rooms at the half with a 12 point lead which in- crea.ed to 14 in the third period. A fired up Lion team grad- ually lessened the point span to 10 at the end of the third quar- ter. Midway through the fourth quarter the Lions caught up and the lead changed lmds several times before the Lions spurted ahead to win. Gary Freeman again took scor- ing honors with 17 points. Jack Smith tipped in 11 points and Jim Hill made five baskets to place in double figures. Jack Smith paced the Lion quintet to a 71-62 opening day win over Blackfoot March 11. Smith canned 27 points to tie the Borah high-scoring record pre- viously set by Bill Farley. Borah found the going rough for the first three quarters be- fore the Lions finally forged to a steady lead in the fourth. RED STEER Food is the I$ E S T !

Cubs make 9-8 record for season Borah Cubs ended the season with a 9-8 slate and a "much improved ball team," according to sophomore mentor Raymond Hill. "We lacked height, but the boys made up for it with their determination and hustle. I feel that we played good offense and the defense looked much better towards the end of the year," the coach stated. "A s f 0 r good material, we had our share of that too'," he con- tinued. "Gary Powell, lead- ing cub scorer ....   seemed to be the best prospect for a varsity position next year, while center Keith Hessing turned out to be our most improved player, sup- porting a 13.0 game average. "I felt the loss of Terry Hunt, who moved to Las Vegas. He kept a 19.0 scoring pace and would have been a great help to the team." Hill also cited Dennis Pooley as having tremendous compet- itive drive. "Bob Hall, Bill Terrill and Pat Johnson were mainstays in our attack and should also be commended," he went on. Guard Larry Bishop was picked by Hill as the best defensive man in the club. the IDAHO STATE A-1 BAS- KETBALL CHAMPS -- seniors Jack Smith, Steve Preece, Dick Daniels, Jim Hill, Dave Patter- son, Mike Hall, Kirk Charlson, Dick Staggs, Bruce Eklund and Clyde Coon; and juniors Gary Freeman, Steve Brewer and Jay Switzer -- and to Coach Murray Satterfield.
