A fast-breaking Rinehart quintet avenged last year's defeat by outplaying the Wintergreens, 86-72 in the House all star basketball championship last night.
The Rineharts took an early lead, which they steadily increase with fast, well-executed plays and accurate shooting. And in spite of continued drives in the last two periods, the Rinehart defense repeatedly took possession of the ball from the Wintergreen offense.
Woodman High Scorer
Rinchart guard Ken Woodman of Kirkland was the game's high scorer, evading the Wintergreen defense for nine field goals and six foul shots. Second in the scoring was center Burt Berson of Dunster, who posted 20 points for the Wintergreens.
With Winthrop's George Doyle and forward Dave Bodiker, Berson sparked a fourth-period drive to eliminate a 15-point deficit. But Cliff Alexander and Jim Joslin of Lowell protected the Rineharts' sizable lead with several well-placed jump shots.
Dudley and Leverett also contributed players to the Rinehart squad; the Wintergreens were aided by Adams and Eliot team members.
The contest which was played in the L.A.B., was the sixth in a series originated by the CRIMSON in 1950, but this was only the second all-star basketball contest.
