By BOB OGLE It was supposedly a game be- tween two of the state's finest AAA boys basketball teams. But some. times, it looked more like the Rod. nie Taylor show. Mercer Island High School lost a 74-64 contest to the Juanita Rebels last Tuesday night, and Taylor, the Rebels' 6-8 center, was the man chiefly responsible. Witness: 31 points. 16 rebounds, six blocked shots. And. oh yeah Two slam dunks. The Islanders were able to get back on the winning track with an 82-54 win over Inglemoor last Fri- day night, pulling their season rec- ord up to 14-3. in preparation for a showdown tilt last night at Both- ell. The lnglemoor win made the Juanita bitter pill a little easier to swallow. "He's a very good player." said Mercer Island coach Ed Pepple. pointing out the obvious. "We wanted to put pressure on their other players so they couldn't just come down the floor and dump the ball off to him easily. But we were slow putting pressure on their forwards downcourt and they got the ball inside to him early in the game "He was just a better player than any of our players." It was largely through Taylor that the Rebels opened up a 16-6 lead at the end of the first quarter, as he grabbed eight points during that period, then six straight to open the second period, making for a 23-12 wound To their credit, the Islanders stayed even and made a rush late in the first half on foul shots by Joe)' Thompson Kyle Pepple and Scott Driggers. and on a three- point play by Rich Dewey That closed the Islanders to within four at the halt. 31-27 I! should be noted that Taylor sat out the final feb minutes of that half. When he decided to come back and play some more. it was the earl)' stages of the third quar- ter He got the first two baskets. Ere Kuebler added another and Don Sparling nailed a three-point play. Presto -- a 40-27 lead Mercer Island made another run. fighting back to 48-41 at 'the end of the third period, But. one more time. they allowed Juanita three straight baskets at the be- ginning of the final period for a 54-41 lead From then on. the Is- landers would come no closer than six points. "We might have been too in- tense." Pepple said after the game, "We might have been try- ing a little too hard, We had two bad streaks that made the differ- ence for the whole ball game. Those few minutes really told the story. "'But I was really impressed with the way our kids kept coming back." Against lnglemoor, the intensity was there, but in smaller quanti- ties "We played fairly aggressively in the first half. but not with a lot of intensity." Pepple pointed out "We played very well in the third quarter" In fact. in the entire second halt. 'BELLEVUE RACQUET CLOB, 1500 - 140th N.E.

It appears as though Island teammates Joe Thompson (42) and AI Moscatel (32) brought down the ball together during last week's game against Juanita. It was actually Moscatel who had the ball. while Thompson had his arms raised behind.
