The Hazleton Center basketball team, coached by Jim
Mulligan, tried for second place in the Pennsylvania Junior College Baste t
ball league with last week's victory over Hersney, 71-65° This win gave
Hazleton a 2 vans, 1 loss record having defeated Mont Alto, 95-62 and
losing to York 81-56 in previous games.
The next two days will decide the outcome of this league since Hazleton
plays Johnstown (the first place team) tonight., and Altoona (the other second
place team) tomorrow night« Johnstown has beaten York by twenby one points,
and Altoona in a close game defeated the York Junior College by two points.
Johnstown, by a ten point margin, handed Altoona its oruy loss for the year.
Prom these scores the Penn State five will find it difficult to capture ohe
conference lead in these nest two games . On the bright side of-the picture,
however, is the fact that these two meets are the first of five straight
home games to be played by the Hazleton team.
In last years season Hazleton defeated York twice. York in turn
defeated Johnstown twice. Johnstown, to complete the picture handed Hazleton
two defeats, Hazleton tied with York for conference lead during the regular
season last year. Hopes are high that, because of the home floor advantage,
they will capture sole possession of first place this year.
Sparking Hazleton on to its first wins were (I) our five starters,
(II) our second string players. Wien these players appear in their next
tilts they will probably be wearing the new uniforms that have just arrived.
These uniforms are black with white outlining and numbers or white with
