There's only three sure things
in this world -- death, taxes, and
Behrend's basketball team. They just
keep winning and winning and winning
and winning.
The Cubs started off 'the J.C.
finals Friday night routing Pierce
Junior College of Philadelphia 76-48.
Taking a 38-26 half time lead, the
Cubs ran out of sight in t - rie final
twenty minutes. They shoot 1 42% from
the floor, grabbed 67 rebounds and hit
ten for eighteen at the charity stripe.
Joe Williams was high with 21
points and 19 rebounds. Taylor also
tough under the boards, grabbed 14
rebounds. Hornyak canned 16 and Bar
arey Etzel added 13.
York pulling out a close 56-52
win over Johnstown grabbed the other
4nners berth and a chance at Behrend
Saturday night.
The Behrend Campus
It was a familiar note Saturday
night as the Cubs went all the way in
the tourney. An explosion late in the
second half brought home the big 97-82
victory. A closely fought battle through
the first half, the Cubs went into the
locker room with a slim one point lead.
After the break, they fell behind by
three at one point chiefly due to some
hot shooting by the Dutchmen.
But this didn't last long when Bar
ney Etzel with a jumper and moments later
a layup put Behrend ahead by one. York
retaliated and lead by one again, but
they Behrend went on its tear.
Williams hit from the key. Taylor
got free inside for two and then turned
in a three point play. Now with a six
point buldge, but not content to run out
the clock, Etzel twice spotted openings
and added two buckets and a foul.
Hornyak added a brace from the line
and as the clock ran out WE WERE NUMBER
