The Malakoff News, Thursday, April lg, 1981--7A By BENNY ROGERS Facing a seven point deficit with just under four minutes remaining, Malakoff's 11-12 All Stars "pressed the issue" instead of the panic button and errupted for 13 unanswered points to post a spectacular 44-40 come-from- behind win over Buffalo here Saturday afternoon in the hi-regional playoff mini-series. With the victory, coupled with a 47-43 win in the series opener last Tuesday in Buffalo, the All Stars earned the right to compete in the national tournament which began yesterday (Wednesday) in Levelland. The trip to the national meet marks the third consecutive year for the local cagers to qualify. Trailing 38-31 with 3:58 left to be played, the All Stars began the miraculous comeback with full court pressure on defense that forced the visitors into a series of turnovers. At this point Donnie Hedge pumped in two field goals to cut the disadvantage to three, 38-35. Following an Andy Thomas free throw that pulled the All Stars to within two, 38-36, Buffalo Coach Gary Bell protested an officials's call and drew a two shot technical foul. Mike Hoyt cool headedly sank both penalty shots to knot the score at 38-58 with 2:11 to go. Hoyt gave the All Stars their first lead since the 23-22 half time lead they owned seconds later with a shot from underneath. Hedge and Thomas added a bucket apiece after the All Stars' sen- sational press forced more turnovers. Thomas capped the stars' 13-point scoring spree with 13 seconds left with a six-foot jumper. The Thomas bucket put the All Stars on top, 44-38. Buffalo's Bubba Bell, who led the visitors with 14 tallies, added a meaningless layup as time expired to account for the 44-40 final reading. While the All Stars' fourth quarter quintet--Greg Ashlock, Billy Hughes, Hoyt, Thomas and Hedge-- stole the spotlight in the end it was the brilliant play of Sean Stenovitch in the second stanza that kept the All Stars within striking distance. Stenovitch poured in eight of the local stars' 16 quarter marker and ignited the defensive effort before the half. Hedge, with 11, led the All Stars in the win. Stenovitch, Thomas and Hoyt tossed in eight apiece while Ashlock and Clyde Dowell had six and three respectively. In the mini-series opener the All Stars also had to rely on their pressure defen- se to erase a five point disadvantage early in the final quarter. Ashlock, with 16, and Hoyt, with 10, paced the way in the opening victory. Other scorers were Grady Baker, Paul Loper, Hughes, Thomas, Hedge arid Stenovitch ...... ~1 BRAD ELSOM made his toss in the District 22A track meet at Cross Roads last week.
