Boys’ Section Scoring Record Set

From Staff and Wire Reports

Chad Bickley, a six-foot junior point guard for Santa Maria Valley Christian Academy, scored a Southern Section record 89 points--including a record 20 three-point shots--to lead the Lions to a 130-48 Coast Valley League victory over host Cuyama Valley.

Bickley’s 89 points broke the previous record, which was set by Nick Tenneriello of Colbert in a game against Brentwood in the 1967-1968 season, by 15 points.


Kurt Altenberg, 50, who caught a pass from Gary Beban to set up the winning touchdown in UCLA’s first Rose Bowl victory on Jan. 1, 1966, is in the coronary care center at UCLA Medical Center awaiting a heart transplant.


Altenberg, who led the Bruins in receiving in 1964 and ‘65, was vacationing in Mexico with former teammate Byron Nelson last November when he caught a virus, another former Bruin, Don Francis, said Friday.

Altenberg was revived, but damage was so severe that a heart transplant will be needed, Francis said.

No. 11 Purdue (18-3, 9-1) took a 13-point halftime lead and held on for a 57-54 Big Ten women’s basketball victory over top-ranked Penn State (18-1, 9-1) at West Lafayette, Ind.
