SIAC history to win the tournament two consective years, and Tuskegee Insti- tute's cager coach, Charles Thompson, was attending state high school and junior college basketball tourna- ments recruiting for next year, the presence of Tuskegee Institute at the 43rd annual SIAC basketball tournament was nonetheless strongly felt as both Coach Ross C. Owens and William Hardwick Jr. were on the SIAC tournament commit- tee with Owens the tourna- ment chairman. The tournament was the 43rd to be held and the first hsted by Alabama A&M University. Tuskegee Insti- tute, the first SIAC tourna- ment winner back in 1934, was not present among the top eight basketball teams from both divisions of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference that met in the Thomas M. Elmore Health and Science Center this past weekend, where 8,000 A&M fans cheered their bulldogs to a victory over Fisk 79-71. Miles College won the consolation game, 78-75 over Alabama State and the first SIAC women's basketball championship was played, Savannah State defeated Fort Valley for the crown 84-70. Following the games SIAC president H.B. Thompson said that when he went in as president this year, he told the other members "we've got to preserve the SIAC because what they've done (HCAA) has placed all the black college teams in one region, the southern league, now if we phase out all these conferences where are we going to go, so we've got to save the SIAC." Thompson is athletic director at Fisk University and the Institute's Thompson.
