PREDICTOR OF THE WEEK                      
Hens & Al Manzey       206    9-6 & 11-4
               BOB SCHOLL'S LEAD INCREASES TO 29 - HENSLEY & MANZEY CO-POW
        Cap Scholl came within 2 points of the best prediction of the week to increase his lead to 29 points  
       over new runner up Nelson Slagle.  Cap and Nelson ended up tied for the week but after 6 games Cap was      
leading Nelson by 44 points on the week and 73 points overall.  On games 8-12 Nelson gained 46 points
on Cap.  It was that kind of zany week.  Cap and Gerry Hamilton disagreed on 8 of the 15 games.  
     In the first 9 weeks Cap has been POW 3 times, 2nd once and two points from POW in week 9.
     For the week Al Manzey, Dick Hammerstrom, Blake Vasquez, Cap and Nelson all picked 11 
winners in 15 games.  But it was Phil Hensley with only 9 winners who tied Al Manzey for Predictor
of the week.  In five of the six games that Phil missed he had the wrong team by 1 point.  The point
spreads were key again!  
     Week  9 is due Tuesday, March 4th.  Games start on Wednesday.
