The Tigers began the tourney with a less than impressive 49-38 win over Canton, a team they had humiliated two days earlier 68-49. Then even lesser than impressive in a 44-41 loss to Frankston, a team they had trounced twice in two early season games. But the hometown quintet regrouped and played up to their full potentail for the first time this year in an 88-60 trom- ping over Arp. The 88 points was a season high as the Tigers brought back a third place trophy. "Tigers 49 - Canton 38 The "Bomb Squad",-Russell Tarver, Richard Blair and Jerryl Jackson- had a fine game hitting for 44 of the Tigers 49 points. But the lack of support from other members kept the contest from being a run away. The two squads suffered cold shooting early. Canton held a 8-6 lead after one quarter before the Tigers came back to tie the game 22-22 at the half. Malakoff outscored their counterpar- ts 12-4 in the third for a 34-26 lead and went on to post their first opening round victory in three tournaments. Tarver topped the Tigers scoring chart with 17 points, while Blair and Jackson tallied 14 and 13 points respec- tively. Tigers 41 - Frankston 44 A not-so-tunny thing happened on the Tigers' way to the finals. A slight case of overconfidence and horrendous shooting led to their lowest offensive output of the season. The lead see-sawed back and forth the entire game. Frankston led 12-9 af- Composite Tournament Box Malakoff Tigers Player FG FT PF TP R. Tarver 22 13 5 57 R. Blair 26 3 8 55 J. McCain 10 2 7 22 Je.
