Cat lose key players It was like watching two different teams. The ACU basketball squad that took the court after the Christmas holidays barely resembled the team that had it all together in December. Sometime during the holidays, five key players vanished from the Wildcat roster for academic reasons, disciplinary pro- blems or just plain dissatisfaction with school. The loss of two or three key players can wreck a team's season. But five? Head Coach Mike Martin recruited players from the student body just to have enough men for practice. Yet somehow Martin was able to gather what was left of his team and hammer it into respectability. The talent had been weakened and the once strong bench was gone, but the Wildcats survived. The season had started with much op- timism. It marked the return of ACU to NCAA competition in basketball. 74 Men's Basketball The team was returning with a great deal of talent from the year before in the form of senior guard Mike Cox and talented forwards Craig Williams and Mike Davis. Also returning after a year's absence was Jeff Johnson, a big plus under the boards. And after sitting out the first semester, Brad Kerley was to bring his fine shooting back to the court. The team had an abundance of bench strength. All looked good. A 71-59 overtime win against Mary Hardin-Baylor started the season for the Cats as Williams poured in 26 points. However, defects in the Cats' attack showed up during a trip to Wichita State as the fourth-ranked Shockers pounded them 93-55. Williams again took the lead with 22 points. Williams' dominance was very clear in the ACU attack early in the season. This was borne out in the Sunshine Tournament. Against Colorado School of Mines Williams played a key role. However, hc injured a knee during the contest and hac to miss the final game against Easterr New Mexico. The Cats lost. Coach Martin must have been concern ed as he took the team to Belton for z rematch with Mary Hardin-Baylor Williams was the only player who was tru- ly producing, and because of the injury i' was possible he wouldn't be able to play.
