high man with three for six points. The following week, league-leading Racine Horlick came to tangle with the local cagers. Beloit was protecting a string of 16 consecutive home court vic- tories as well as trying to keep dying title hopes alive with triumph number five. An early surge spearheaded by Dave Schneider and Jim Ewing prepared the 2,000 fans for a massacre that never took Dlace as the Rebels went on to defeat Beloit in a wild 63-60 contest. Before fouling out, Schneider collected 10 points while Ewing registered 15. A well-balanced Beloit team with good shooting, rebounding, and defense was too much for Madison Central as they suffered a "thawed-out" 62-37 setback. Coach Melvin used his reserves a large share of the time as Jim Ewing, in a limited appearance, was top Saint point- maker with 11. Janesville's Bluejays turned the tide as they avenged an earlier defeat to the Purple in a 62-52 game. Jim Ewing was the only Beloiter who was effective from the field as he led both teams with 18 BASKETBALL SUMMARY points. The next game Beloit lost also, a 65-55 decision to Madison West. The poor passing and shooting of the Fourth Street crew in this game provoked the city newspaper to term the Saints as ulackadaisical locals". Bob Brunette led West, whose long shot attack paid off handsomely, with 21 points while Be- loit's two Jims. Adams and Ewing, each managed to get 13. The Saints slapped back at frowning followers with an impressive 66-53 vic- tory over Racine Park. Beloit was prob- ably at its best as it hit for a 52" shoot- ing mark. One of the evening's most pleasant happenings was the arrival of George Harrell as a scoring punch. In addition to Harrell's 14 points, jim Ewing, playing the second half with four fouls, collected 18. Jim Adams was top man with 19 points and a Fine Hoor game. Sophomore jeff Cohen, big Kenosha center, hit for 25 points as he led his teammates to a 68-48 rout of the Beloit team. The efforts of jim Ewing pulled IXCPI-1

BASK ETBAll SUMMARY lead jim Adams and the game's top scorer, Tony Asherns of Belvidere, com- mitted a double foul. Both made their pressure shots giving the Saints an- other verdict. The Beloit four game winning streak came to an abrupt halt on this December eve as johnny Orr's Dubuque Rams wal- loped the out-of-staters, 87-52. Their main attack came from Bob Hulburt and Gene Grunau who combined for 55 mark- ers, more than the entire Beloit squad. jim Ewing led the losers with a mere 11 points in the Hnal of two-year series which saw Dubuque victorious twice. Beloit's four game road trip was con- cluded with a 50-49 heartbreaker. Keno- sha was paced by the night's top scorer, Bob Hartman, a southpaw long artist. Behind Hartman's 14 came jim Adams and Dwayne Berg at 12 each. Beloit, who jumped to an early lead, had some closing shots, but they were all in and out, consequently our Big Eight record dropped to the .500 mark in four games. Led by big "Dink" Berg, Beloit gained the lead in the fourth quarter after a 'PAGE l4fi poor display prior to that point. The Madison East Purgolders nearly caught up, but the score ended at 50-49. jim Adams was the evening's number one scorer with 16 tallies as the Purple captured an undisputed claim to third place. Going neck and neck into the final three minutes with Racine Washington Park the Saints lost several offensive big guns including Dwayne Berg and jim Adams. Minus these men Coach Me1vin's charges slipped to a 65-57 de- feat. All-conference forward, Bob Har- rigan, had 18 for Park. Guards, jim Ewing and Dave Schneider had 12 points apiece for the losers. Sounding like the early 1900's Beloit beat Madison Central by a score of 17-8. Electing to freeze the game Central found the Saints willing to let them and consequently the only action much of the time was that of Dwayne Berg and Central's Tim Chasey moving around the pivot positions. The host team failed to make a single field-goal while Beloit's little senior guard, Dave Schneider, was

BASKETBALL SUMMARY the Purple close when he exploded in the third period and collected 8 of his 21 tallies. The general good game of the visitors, however, soon widened the gap in Beloit's home finale of the regular season. Beloit erased the Madison East first half lead and moved out ahead with a fine comeback in the last conference meeting for the cagers. Big George Har- rell controlled the boards well and made 11 of his 19 points during the second half surge. Jim Ewing, leading point- maker, hit 16 of his 25 during the same rally which led to a 62-47 victory. TOURNAMENT Beloit in the previous two seasons had traveled the long, hard road to Madison to completiong Lake Geneva was the first barrier in this year's journey. In this game big George Harrell teamed up with the Saint co-captains as he displayed a fine rebounding and rallied for 15. The other big guy, "Dink" Berg, showed PAGE 148 his early season form on the boards with Harrell and on the scorecard as he sank 13 points. All-conference guard, jim Ewing, showed the Resorters his deadly jump shot as well as the other qualities that earned the Big Eight honor rating as he registered 18 points, the evening's high. The final score was 68-40. The next barrier was the Monroe team under Lee Mitchell. They had won 18 of their 19 starts and had the second spot in state rankings. Beloit met them and was defeated by a score of 56-44. The Cheesemakers' superior height and shoot- ing ability humbled the Beloiters into submission. jim Ewing collected 12 points while Herb Ableman of Monroe hd 17. The evening's top scorer, Bob Anderegg, in garnering 21 points showed why he went on to establish State Tournament scoring records. Monroe justified its victory over the local stal- warts by continuing on the Madison road to the semi-finals where it took the state's number one rated team to defeat them by a mere two points.
