Sees It ..
BY H. H. GREENE JR.
Well, such was the case this past
week and it was rewarding to know
that someone out there was reading
words and either agrees or
disagrees with me. The case in point
was what 1 had written earlier
concerning the big trades made by the
Kentucky Colonels. If memory serves
me correctly I said that the trade
which sent Mike Gale and Wendall
Ladner to New York for John Roche
could be one of the best or one of the
worst that the Colonels have made.

that we can't hit the basket. They (the
players) run well, but they just can't
find the range."
Fxemplury of Moore's woes has
been the play of senior guard Bruce
Gilbert, who has some
performances this season to his credit.
Recently Gilbert has been plagued
with the same shooting slump that has
affected his teammates and, as Carroll
said, "with his shooting

Cincinnati. This alone could be an
But seriously speaking,
enough time has not elapsed for a real
evaluation of the trade.
It is hoped by many that the trade
was not made too late, what with the
playoffs being just around the comer.
Personally 1 feel the trade was made
just in time. There are enough games
left for the new Colonels to become
familiar with the type of play that is
desired by coach Babe McCarthy.
What appears to be happening is
that the Colonels have a better
balanced scoring team. No one or two
players will have to be responsible for
all of the scoring anymore. The new
guards are certainly capable of moving
the team and are the type that are
adept at penetrating the defense and
getting the ball in low to the big men
and if this fails they are able to score
The bench is one of the best in the
ABA, if not the best. Little, if
anything, is lost when a substitute is
made. Such team strength has been
compared by some to the overall
strength of Indiana, New York and
other stronger ABA clubs. Again, in
short, the Colonels could have the
strongest team in the ABA.
With the playoffs just around the
corner the move that was made just
might have placed the local pro team
in a very good position in the playoffs.
The fight for first place in their
division doesn't loom as to much of a
big thing to me, for it was only last
year that the Colonels had the
homecourt advantage, but it didn't
prove to help very much. So maybe
not having the homecourt advantage
might prove to be an advantage.
At times the thought comes to
mind that perhaps no one is giving
much, if any,' thought to what is being
written in this column. But then, like
last week, someone comes before you
and makes a statement that may be in
contrast to what you had said in an
