Cougars overwhelm Pacific JV by 56
By Tracy M. Sumner
Of The Print
Second-year player Jim
Hill scored 24 points and grab­
bed eight rebounds to help lead
the College men’s basketball
team to a 98-42 man-handling
of a seemingly helpless Pacific
junior varsity team.
Dave Carlson chipped in a
season-high 18 points on nine
of 13 shooting from the field.
Mike Imper and Bob Nippert
led the Cougars in rebounding
with 10 boards each. Imper
also chipped in 13 points.
As one-sided as the
“game” was, College Basket­
ball Coach Royce Kiser hinted
that the blow-out was really no
indication of how well his team
has been playing.
“I really couldn’t tell
anything because no one
played much more than 20
minutes,” Kiser explained.
Clackamas hit a shade
under 53 percent of its field
goal attempts while holding
Pacific to an abysmal 30 per­
cent shooting clip. The
Cougars out-rebounded their
opponents 62-28 for the game.
Kelly Burke and Mark
McLaughlin each had six assists
to lead the Cougars to 26-13 in
that department.
The win over Pacific came
on the heels of an 0-2 road trip
to Weed, Calif, for the College
of the Siskyous Tournament.
Clackamas was victimized
by poor shooting in the first
game, a 73-69 set-back at the
hands of Sierra Junior College.
The Cougars shot a little better
than 38 percent for the game
on 30 of 78 as compared to a
white-hot 60 percent shooting
game for Siena.
The Cougars were led by
Tom Welle’s 15 points. Jim
Imper added 14 points for
Clackamas to go with his 19 re­
bounds. He grabbed 11 defen­
sive boards and eight on the of­
fensive end.
Another factor in the
Clackamas loss was the
unusually large differencial of
fouls called on the Cougars.
Welle, Hill (who was held
to six points for the game),
and Burke all fouled out on the
way to the team’s 27 personal
fouls. Sierra had just 14 per­
sonals whistled on them.
Clackamas was out-scored
from the free-throw line 21-9
for the game.
Field goal shooting was no
problem for the Cougars in the
second game of the tourney, a
last minute 69-67 loss to
Feather River Junior College.
The team shot a sizzling 63 per­
cent for the game.
Feather River scored on a
long set shot with five seconds
left in the game to secure the
victory. Hill’s 18-footer at the
buzzer missed narrowly to end
the game.
“We had a chance to win
it,” Kiser said. “It (Hill’s final
shot) was a good shot. It just
didn’t go down.”
Tom Welle led the
Cougars offensively with 26
points on 12 of 16 shooting
from the field. Hill and Jim Im­
per chipped in 14 and 10
points, respectively.
The team’s record for the
young season now stands at
2-Z. The Cougars travel to
British Columbia for a game
with Vancouver City College
this Thursday and a contest
with Caplino on Friday.
