How about the ef- fects of peach shnapps on inter- planetary space travel? The first hoagie eatemon the moon? Maybe I'll meet the man in the moon, old crater face?

"Easy Ed" virtually never complains, being too busy finding opportunities for inserting his .10 usable prime-time players into a talented lineup. "It's a luxury and I don't hesi- tate to use any of my players," Waples said. "That will only help us down the road." A second quarter lineup of Carl Floyd, .Hazzard, Donald Davis, Adam Woods and Adam Scott kept Cape close at halftime 31-26 as Waples protected foul-plagued Bolden and Wilson while resting starters Burton and Biles. Hay- wood Burton and Ricky Thomp- son also saw considerable first- half action. The Cape engine finally tuned up in a frantic fourth quarter re- sembling NASCAR basketball. The Vikings outscored Seaford 27-8 as Wilson took control, scot- hag 10 fourth-quarter points to fin- ish the game with 15. Other play- ers in double figures were Ronson Burton with 15 and Bolden with 10. Unimpressive against IR As impressive as Cape was in salting away Seaford in a fourth quarter "shootout," the Vikings were equally "depressive" in KIM SMITH "We are having so much fun this year," said senior Smith after scoring 14 points and forcing a handful of turnovers in Tuesday's 58-35 victory over the Lady Jays of Seaford. Part of the fun is Cape's 12-1 overall and 12-0 conference record. Part of it is the camaraderie that Smith and teammates enjoy on and off the court. Smith's 14 points in the Seaford game followed a career-high 27 points, including five three-pointers, in last Thurs- day's victory over Indian River.

Crunch time came with 4:23 left to play and Cape trailing 36-33. The intense game was character- ized by either tenacious defense or poor offense, turnovers and missed free throws - take your pick. A Dartez Major three-point- er with 3:14 remaining boosted Indian River to a 41-36 advantage. Another Indian basket just under the three-minute mark produced a seven-point lead as the Indians set sail and appeared headed for a calm victory. Clutch baskets by Hazzard and Ronson Burton brought Cape back to 43-40. And then the reli- able Burton missed a pair of free throws. IR scored but the basket was waved off for an offensive foul. Biles hit a pair of free throws and the score was 43-42. Hazzard then missed a wide-open layup under the basket. With 17 seconds remaining and the score 43-42, Burton was back on the line with a chance to re- deem himself. Cape's best foul shooter, who last missed four in a row when the wind was blowing 40 mph. across his driveway, missed a pair. The Indians' Kelly, the coach's son, was quickly fouled and had a chance to ice the game for his dad. Kelly missed and Cape rebounded with nine seconds remaining and a chance to win the game. But Kelly, on the ensuing Cape possession following a "no-time- out" call, picked the pocket of Wilson at the top of the key as the Indians "ran out" of Lewes with the victory. Hazzard was a bright spot for Cape scoring 16 points and lead- ing the team in rebounds. "We scouted Cape twice and tried to slow them down with great de- fense," Harris said. "Hopefully, we'll see i.hem again in the Hen- lopen Conference game." Cape girls Continued from page 62 each other. And they're good stu- dents, too. Out of 12 girls, 10 made the honor roll, so they're doing it in the classroom, too." Waples went to the bench late in the third quarter after knocking in 16 points and forcing a half dozen turnovers in the game. For Waples, who sat out her junior year, this sea- son has been prime time. "It seemed that this might be my last chance to prove my- self," she said. "I think we're WAPLES a better team than people thought we were going to be this year. For me, it's been more of a family, on and off the court." Waples led all scorers on Tuesday night in the game which saw all Vikings play. Smith, With- erspoon and Parseghian followed with 14, 12 and I1. In the junior varsity game, Seaford outlasted Cape to win 29-22 in overtime. Rochelle Maker tipped in eight points for the Cape JV team. Rochelle Hazzard and Tish Jones each contributed four. Blazing five three-pointers, Smith brought the Vikings from an eight-point halftime deficit to defeat southern division leader IR last Thursday, 58-47.Witherspoon leaped for 17 points and 17 rebounds. ANTONIA JONES Just a seventh grader, this basketball player is turning heads around the Henlopen Conference with her "com- plete game." "She is the best since Maggie Widdoes and Katie DelCampo were in middle school," said coach Ron Kahn. Antonia is the daughter of former Cape basketball star Tony "Mate" Miller and her mother Wan- da Jones is the sister of William and Traey Jones. "My dad and uncles taught me how to play so I had no choice but to be a good play- er," Antonia said.

MATT GRAVIET Matt cruised through the heavyweight division win- ning the gold medal in the Valley Forge invitational wrestling tournament. Cape coach Chris Mattioni is a graduate of Valley Forge. "Matt is just on top of his game right now," Mattioni said. Last Friday night he "decked" Patrick Reed of IR a physical wrestler whom Graviet has never beaten. His record is 13-2 on the sea- son, and is one of the top three heavyweights in the conference, along with CR's Marcel Roberson.
