The Benson Tech basketball team. rated the state's number
one, opened up with it's big guns and when the smoke had
cleared all their pre-season opponents were laid out on the
court, rubbing burnt eyes. With 7'O All-American Richard
Washington and 6'6 Ricky Lee leading the charge, the
Techmen outscored their opponents by an average of 17.5
points. After Washington had scored 30 points in the first
game a lot of people cried, "get rid of Richard and the
Techmen will be nothing!" But the very next night Washington
and Fort Vancouver's Craig Pierce were ejected for fighting. It
looked bad for the Techmen. Their big man was out of the
game! The game ended with a dream shattered, that is the
dream that "if-you-get-rid-of-Richard-Washington-you-will-
beat-the-Techmen." The rest of the team out-scored, out-
rebounded, ripped off, and checked the Trappers to the tune of
62 to 29. The team then defeated Wilco champion Reynolds
and P.l.L. Grant to win the Reynolds invitational Jamboree and
end their pre-season schedule undefeated.
