This is the fourth game of the Barney Rubble ’87 Fantasy Tournament. All games are played in "The Fieldhouse of Dreams." In last night’s game, Team Massimino defeated Team Severance by six points. Barney provided this report from court side: "Keith Herron poped for 16, John Pinone and Ed Pinckney scored 14 a piece, mostly from in the paint. Joe Huggard was able to beat Rollie's traps early, but tired down the stretch. Paul Arizin ended with 20 points, Larry Hennessy scored 16 and Bob Schaeffer 11 for Team Severance. Screaming Al was angered that the three pointer was not in effect, as his team hit consistently from behind the arc. "
