Chance wins Sanders Title

'

4

By DAN COVEN
Saturday night's championship game
of the Sandy Sanders Summer Basket-
ball League could have been called
"shoot-out at Pioneer Gym," But, for
400-plus fans in the sweltering gym, it
was a thrilling evening of street-ball at
its finest.
In a see-saw battle, regular season
favorite The Chance finally edged out
Washtenaw PAL 91-90 with three
seconds left.
PACKING A mean 25-foot jumper,
with a seemingly endless clip, ex-Piston
Terry Duerod took on The Chance's big
guns by scoring a league record 38 poin-
ts for PAL.
Both teams came out with six-guns
blazin' in the first half, as both teams
hit their first five shots. Ex-Michigan
star Johnny Johnson scored 18 points
and Mark Bostic had six dunks to pace
The Chance to a 56-42 half-time lead.
That lead quickly evaporated in
opening minutes of the second half as
Richard Rellford, Percy Cooper, and
Terry Duerod led PAL on an 18-4 spurt
tying the game at 60. With 13 minutes to
play, PAL took the lead for the first
time as Cooper connected with Rellford
for an alley-oop jam, to make it 62-60.
When Tarpley failed to score off a
brilliant behind-the-head pass from
Thad Garner, Cooper grabbed the
rebound and headed down court.
Cooper then heaved the ball from cen-
ter-court toward the basket intending
another alley-ooo for Rellford. Though
the pass was too high and behind, the
"Riviera Flash" briefly defied gravity
by plucking the ball out of the air
behind him with one hand and slammed
it home in one motion to the delight of

the cheering crowd.
BEHIND more 25 and 30-foot bombs
from . Duerod and aggressive inside
play by Rellford PAL boosted its lead to
77-71.
Then, as so many times before, Tar-
pley took control of the game by rejec-
ting three consecutive shots and
scoring six out of The Chance's next 11
points, with the momentum back in The
Chance's favor, Tarpley and company
trimmed PAL's lead to two, at 84-82.
Tarpley, not known for his outside
shooting, then hita jumper from the top
of the key to tie it up at the two minute
mark. After some persevering inside
baskets by Garner, The Chance led 90-
86.
PAL turned again to Duerod, who,
though double-teamed sank a 30-foot
jumper and then with 9 seconds left, a
spectacular fall-away rainbow from the
baseline to tie the game at 90. Bostic
then took the inbounds pass for The
Chance and drove straight to the hoop
and was fouled. With three seconds
remaining, Bostic went to the line and
missed the first shot. PAL then called
time out to heighten the pressure on
Bostic. With a sigh of relief, Bostic sank
the second shot. Wilbur McCormick's
desperation jumper for PAL bounced
off the rim at the buzzer.
~Duerod led all scorers with 38 points
- on 19 of 29 shooting. Rellford added 18,
Johnny Johnson led The Chance with 26
points, league MVP Tarpley added 25
points and four blocks, Mark Bostic
scored 22 including eight dunks, and
Thad Garner tallied 16 with eight
assists.
In the consolation game, Stein &
Goetz defeated Franklin-Wright 57-55.
