were shaded toy West Texas 73-70
in the final seconds.
tition The Buffaloes had led the
game since the opening minutes
but the Pokes displayed a bril-
liant rally in the final minutes
and took their first and only lead
70-69 with 25 seconds left as
Barry Oxford sank a jump shot.
A quick comeback by the WT
cagers nipped the Cowboys' hope
for a BC win as the Buffs sank
four free throws in the last sec-
onds to sneak past H-SU bidders.
With only five seconds remain-
ing and the score at a tight 71-70
Dave Kissinger rambled down
the court to give the Pokes their
final chance but his field goal

West Texas added two free
throws to cince the game after
WT guard Sonny Blankenship
was fouled as the buzzer rang.

ton Martin who sank 11 of the 26
points the H-SU quintet had at

In the first half the Cowboys
could not seem to get started. The
Buffs led by as much as 11 points
at several intervals as they sank
a good percentage from the field.
The score remained at 34-26 when
the half ended.
New life appeared in the
Pokes as they took the court the
second go-round and in the early
minutes they cut the Buffs' lead
to 38-33. Using a man-to-man
defense the H-SU squad began
to move fast and lay up points
as they temporarily rattled WT
into a cold streak in the last 3
minutes. Then Oxford dumped
his 20-foot field goal through the
net to give H-SU the lead.
But the seven-second lead was
snipped as Kissinger fouled Hard-
away and the big Buff eager
made both free throws ot pull
WT ahead 71-70.
A high 80.8 per cent in free
throws was made by WT as they
put in 21 of 26 but the light
