He revealed a soft fadeaway jump shot and tenacious hellhawking moves on defense. Prudon added 16 points, but needs work on defense, according to lilly. Hess contributed 14 and Arnette, who plays better under game conditions, added 10. Datcher scored six points and reveal good body control for a slender man. He was guarded by former Pioneer great Steve Datcher, a cousin, who shoved and intimidated Randy all night without apparent success. Datcher even dove for a loose bell late in the contest, a rare move for a big man in tlm heat of play. Also playing for the alunm were former All-American Earl Hawkins. who led all scorers with 28 points; Dave Merchant. scoring 26 points despite sore legs: Datcher, with 15 points; Jimmy Spicer, Wayne Hopklne :a GSC student), Gena King, Jeff Jackson, Tim Lee and Bob Hardm__an.

Jesse Lilly's Glenville State College basketball teams always hustle-that's how they Finished with a respectable 9-16 record last year with only eight players, none over 6-3 in height. But sports fans are more optimistic this year that GSC will finish higher in WVIAC rankings. Coach Lilly - facing tough opponents in Wesleyan, Morris Harvey. Shepherd. Fairmont and Tech - has seven players this season over 6-4 with 15 players overall vying for starting positions. Three returning players who sat out last season for one disciplinary reason or another, should be of considerable help: Randy Datchar, Thomas Coates and Danny Pruden. Randy Datcher is a 6-7 senior center who showed in last Saturday's exhibition game with the Pioneer Alumni that he can handle contact under the boards and shoot when he's open. Thomas Coates, a junior guard, should provide the quickness, ball handling and scoring punch needed by the departure of Arnie David and Dickie Hardman, last season's First and third highest scorers, respectively. Joining Coates, a transfer from Allegheny Community College in Pittsburgh, in the forecourt will be Randy Hess, a senior letterman who saw some action last year but showed quickness and poise in the alumni scrimmage. Lilly will also be counting on sophomore forward Greg Arnette, last year's scoring leader with 324 points (15.4 per game average). Arnette is an excellent rebounder, too, despite his 5-11 size. He led the team in that category lest season with 202 rebounds, averaging 9.6 a game. And Arnatta is one of the most accomplished overall players on the team, possessing silky smooth moves and great body control. Danny Prudan, who won't be eligible to play until the spring semester, shotild be a mainstay on offense for the Pioneers. At 6.5, Prudan is a fine shooter from his guard position. Also expected to see considerable action are Robert "Chicken Hawk" Hawkins, a junior who lettered at guard last year. Hawkins is a fierce competitor who sparkles on defense. He was the fifth leading scorer last season with 240 points (9.6 average) and was third in rebounds with 130 {5.2 average.) Others to watch for are Gary Nottingham, a freshman guard from Braxton County H. S. ; Roger Dingey, a 6-6 soph forward back in school again (won't be eligible unUl spring}; Charles Warner, a 6-4 frosh forward: lee Knicelay and Don Whelen, both 6-4 freshman; Cane Pearson, a 6-5 frosh from New Jersey who could develop ff he works hard; and other freshman, Rag Carter, Wayne Washington, and Calvin Page. Starters should be Coates and Hess at guards, Hawkins and Arnetta at forwards, and Datcher at center. That lineup may shift as tl~ season progresses, Lilly advised.
