Despite its closeness, the game was overshadowed by the net scorching abilities of Salem's Archie Talley. The 6-1 senior guard from Washington sizzled the nets with 39 points to top career conference scoring star Joe Miller of Alderson-Broaddus who set the conference record in 1957 with a career total of 3,666 points. The game was interupted briefly when. WVC Commissioner Mike McLaughlin and NAIA football scoring leader Jack Deloplaine of Salem presented Talley with the game ball. Glenville, ironically though, was the team that seemed to catch fire after the presentation to Talley. grabbing a 69-66 lead on Tom Coates' field goal with 8:54 left. Also taking a back seat to Talley's feat was a 28-performance by Coates, a iunior from Pittsburgh, and a 24-point effort by the Pioneer' Wayne Washington, a freshman from Brandywine, Md. The lead, though, changed hands four more times before Glenville again forged a three-point edge, 79-76, on a pair of Coates' field goals. Then, after Talley pumped in his final field goal of the game and 3,676th career point to bring Salem within one, at 79-76, Coates intercepted a Tiger pass and tossed to the speedy Washington for a snowbird at 0:46 for another three-point Glenville advantage, 81-78. However, Salem's Jim Hartnett sank two free throws at 0:32 to cut the Pioneer lead to one, 81-80 and set the stage for the final frantic seconds of play. spied Mitchell all alone ov the baseline and slipped him a pass for a iayup at 0:14 to put Salem up. 81-81. After a Glenville timeout at 0:11, Coates. trying to get down court quickly against a Salem press, turned the ball over with six seconds left. Greg Arnette fouled Mitchell on the inbounds pass a second later but the Salem cager misfired at the charity stripe with Coates hauling down the rebound, but being called for charging at 0:01 to wrap up the win for Salem. In all, Talley connected on 16 of 37 field goal attempts and swished seven of eight free throws for his 39 points as Salem upped its record to 6-15. Glenville, which deserved a better fate after the Pioneers played their hearts out before a predominantly pro-Archie Talley crowd, finished its campaign with a 12-16 mark. However. the Pioneers will be heard from in the next couple years if the Wednesday performances of freshmen Washington and Charles Warner along with Sophomores Roger Dingey and Arnette, plus Junior Coates are any indication.
