CLASSIFIEDS By DOUG G~ORE Facing the hometown Lady Trojans of Trinidad in the finals of the Trinidad Basketball Tournament Saturday night, the Oakwood Pantherettes "were a little overconfident going into the match," according to Oakwood coach Melvin Dews. But backing a little overconfidence with the atheletic abilities of one Vickie Burrow, who led the Pantherettes scoring effort with a game-high 32 points, Oakwood overcame the Trinidad threat to the tune of a 47-37 victory. Leading 6-5 at the close of the first period, the Lady Trojans stayed on the :i heels of the Pantherettes throughout ~: the second quarter. As the half came to an end Trinidad found itself down by only one point, 18-17. were never to see the lead again. Holding Trinidad to only 20 second half points, Oakwood increased its score by 29. Stealing the ball and fast breaking down court for the layup and sinking 15- foot jumpers, Burrow accounted for 20 of those 20 points. Ripping three field goals and hitting nine from the free throw line, Lady Trojan Lomse Hornbuck]e led the Trinidad scoring strike with 15 before leaving the game in the second half. Followed closely by Tammy Riley with 12, the combined effort of Hornbuckl~ and Riley fell short of the Pantherette attack. In other tournament action, Eustace defeated Martins Mill to claim the consolation title and Wortham bested Cross Roads for third place honors.
