42 - CAPE GAZETPE, Friday, February 3 - February 9, 1995 Balanced Lewes Middle basketball team goes undefeated in January From The Cape Gazette's Traveler Series* The LMS boy's basketball team has run the table in the latter part of the month of January, having yet to lose in the new year. Their impressive record can be attrib- uted to the productivity of the eight players who usually get the meaningful playing time. This run, which has been over 4 games, has been against Sel- byville, Woodbridge, Laurel, and Sussex Central. Of the four games only the Sussex Central game was not a blow out, and that game LMS won by 12 points. The back court play has been essential for the Pirates over this four game run and also the season. Chris Burke and Ricky Thompson have shared the starting point guard duties this season and both have different, but still equally ef- fective, styles of play. This gives Coach Conlon the luxury of start- ing either player to get the best of both worlds. Burke is a slashing, driving type of guard who, according to Coach Conlon, "pushes the ball down low." Burke's game is one similar to that of John Stockton and Bob- by Hurley in the way that he dri- ves the lane and dishes off. Ricky Thompson is more of an outside shooting kind of guard whose game is like that of 76er guard Dana Barros in the way he shoots the ball from the outside. At the two guard or shooting guard posi- tion, Conlon rotates in Ricky Cooper, Eric Conlon, and Eric Croce who all do a solid job. The center position is another spot where LMS seems to be ,ery strong. Tim Cannon takes care of ! the centering duties for Coach Conlon. Cannon is an excellent re- bounder who plays the role of a Dennis Rodman, but not in the sense of hair color or attitude, but in the sense of the way he attacks the offensive and defensive glass. However, let it be known that MIDDLE SCH00LS Cannon can do much more than just rebound. He demonstrated that in the game against Wood- bridge in which Cannon lit up Woodbridge for 14 points in the first quarter. On every good team there has to be ago-to guy and for LMS it is O.J. Wilson. Wilson, who plays the forward position for Coach Conlou, has averaged 19 points a game and had a season high of 25 points against Caesar Rodney. Wilson, according to Coach Conlon, is the guy who they al- ways want to get the ball toin the final seconds and is also the guy who will usually run the entire game if it is close. Wilson's role on this team is one similar to that of what Charles Barkley does for the Phoenix Suns. Another key player for LMS down the stretch of the season has been Mark Moore. Moore, ac- cording to Conlon, has made key shots to win games this season, and is, to Conlon, a hard working, blue collar type player who gets the job done. LMS is a team like every other successful team in that it has play- ers that play certain roles, and in good teams those roles are clear cut and accepted by its members. Cape board honors student athletes Two Cape Henlopen High School students received recognition awards from the Cape Henlopen Board of Ed- ucation during the Jan. 26 meeting. Sean Bradham was recognized for being selected as the first team defensive back on the Northern Divi- sion All Conference Football Team, and MeHssa Betts was honored because she was se- lected for the second team of- fense in the All Henlopen Conference Field Hockey Team. Doug Davis, sittin' there restin' his bones, in Hawaii's evening sun. Sittin" in The Mornin" Sun, He'll Be Readin" When The Evening Comes The heady scent of lush, green vegetation, the trilling of exotic birds, the pore-cleansing moistness of the warm and calm Pacific surf.., ahhhh Hawaii. Doug Davis of Dewey Beach chose the beautiful island for his wedding with his lovely Mary in December.  The two tied the proverbial knot and then roamed their honeymoon heaven for days on end. They mixed their thoughts and moods with island essenses and stirred island elixir into a beachside, native cauldron simmering with love and contentment. Of course we all know how they started and ended each day. Mary, her hands pushed securely into the pockets of her jeans, gazing out at sunrise and sunset, basking in the glow ... Doug poring over his most recent issue of the Cape Gazette. Hawaii, love and marriage make for a great Polynesian stew, but it takes a great local newspaper - the Cape Gazette - to add the spice.
