The Titans, 16-7, found the going tough against the Yellow Jackets during the middle periods as their outside shooting cooled off and the rugged Spencer cagers were success- ful in penetrating the Gilmer zone. However, in the late going the Titan cagers exhibited fine conditioning and a lot of hustle to claw their way back intn the contest and go ahead to stay. Both teams shot well from the floor, each meshing 23 shots field goal attempts. Gilmer attempted 57 shots for 40 percent while Spencer rifled up 55 attempts for 42 percent. The Yellow Jackets held a commanding 41-28 advantage on the boards but sacrificed that effort in the turnover department with 17 miscues to just nine for Gilmer. After the game, an elated Dave Barnes. coach of the Titans remarked, "We tried to change the tempo in the second half and run with the ball more. We also changed defenses and put more pressure on the ball." The added pressure on the basketball resulted in SPECIAL COW & CALF SALE MARCH 20, 1976 I:00 PM SATURDAY WITH REG.
