Maybe you noticed in Scoreboard: No. 1 in junior college basketball, Laredo (Tex.). Another D.C. connection, fans.
All-Met brothers Linwood and Earl Davis, out of Teddy Roosevelt High, and Ken Harvey, equally all-Met at Fairmont Heights, are key players at Laredo J.C. Linwood Davis scored 34 points and Harvey 29 as the Palominos knocked off perennial JuCo power San Jacinto--and Sports Illustrated was there.
That win elevated Laredo (20-1) to the top of the poll and sank San Jacinto to No. 7. Linwood Davis leads the team in scoring and is a top candidate to join Harvey, a sophomore now, as a JuCo all-America.

Gary Monroe is another feather in Roosevelt's cap, shuttling between No. 1 and 2 lately in the field goal percentage category of the NCAA Division II basketball stats. The 6-foot-7 senior at Wright State (Dayton, Ohio)--in his second year out of a Nebraska junior college--has been making two-thirds of his shots; averaging 18 points, eight rebounds. Outdid himself with a 28-point, 10-rebound effort that fetched a 65-64 victory over then No. 2 Kentucky Wesleyan and vaulted Wright State (14-3) from No. 13 to No. 6 . . .
