St. Clair short- ened the gap to four points again with 30 seconds left, but couldn't get any closer than that. Head Coach Ben Yocom described solid team defense as the key for Cuba in their win. "We played consistently on both ends of the floor for four quarters against St. Clair, and when you do that, it puts you in a position to win every time. We haven't always been able to do that this year," he noted. "For us to be successful, we have to play good defense and keep our opponents from scoring a lot of points. I was really impressed by the inten- sity our guys played with. " McDaniel led Cuba's offense in the game with 15 points, Bosson had 11, Mace nine, Watson seven, and Michael Montgomery two.

The Wildcats never trailed in the 44-37 victory, their best overall performance of the year on both ends of the court. The Cats play Vienna at home tonight and at Steelville Friday. Group plans Missouri River 'Rumble' JEFFERSON CITY--What better way to observe the Lewis and Clark bicentennial than by retracing their steps on a 185-mile Missouri River canoe trip? That's exactly what Midwest River Expeditions, a non-profit organization. "It's a great way to learn the ropes while mak- ing lasting friendships." If canoeing 20 to 30 miles a day sounds grueling, consider who is interested in rg/ or write to rediscovering the , P.O: Box 3408 Missouri River invited.

Along the way, upwards of 200 modern-day voyageurs will watch bald eagles and other wildlife, comb sandbars for arrowheads and artifacts from sunken river- boats, mark the passage of landmarks mentioned in Lewis and Clark's journals and explore local culture in river communities. "This event is made to order for people who have always wanted to float the Missouri River but who lacked the expe- rience or confidence to do it alone," said Rex Klein, presi" dent of Midwest River that simply drifting in the cur- rent carries canoeists downriv- er at 3 to 4 miles per hour. Moderate paddling effort pro- vides enough speed to allow time for frequent stops to stretch legs and explore. After each day's float, "rum- blers" will spend the night in campgrounds in or near river towns. Overnight stops will include Glasgow, Boonville, Easley, Jefferson City, Chamois, Hermann and .Washington. Access to showers and portable toilets is avail- able at stopovers, too.
