Coach Newt Kyle's Bobcats opened the defense of their NCC title on December 16 as Wesleyan was defeated 50-47 on the Falls City maples. Omer Meeker tallied 19 points to cop scoring honors. Peru's ability to hit from the free throw line was the deciding factor as Doane fell 52-42 in an early January game on the Tiger's court. Again Meeker collected 19 points to lead the Blue and White squad. Bob Eilers registered 12 markers and was outstanding, defensively. Employing a fast break effectively, the Kylemen trampled York 71-42 at the Auburn High gym. Meeker and Johnson led scoring with 20 and 14 points, respectively. Again Eilers played an important role with his rebound work and defensive play. The Bobcats pulled away in the final minutes for a 63-51 victory over the Hastings Broncos as Meeker paced the scoring with 19 points. A number of the Peruvians traveled to Wayne to see the Bobcats come out on the long end of a 48-39 score. Eilers scored 11 points as the Kylemen avenged last year's losses to the Wildcat team. In a double header at Chadron, Peru defeated the Eagles 63-44 and 71-44. Don Born-schlegl and Merle Bauer led the Peru scoring with 14 points in the first game, while Bill Johnson and Lyle Meier tallied 12 and 11 points respectively, in the final contest. Jack Hallstrom sparked a late rally which produced a 58-51 overtime victory at Hastings as Meeker and Hallstrom led scoring with 11 and 10 points, respectively. A capacity crowd packed the Auburn gym to witness a 52-44 victory over Wayne. Merle Bauer chalked up 17 points and was the defensive standout of the game. Peru's platoon system wearied George Grib-ble and his Midland teammates producing a 79-49 victory over the Warriors. Eilers and Meeker led the scoring with 14 and 13 points, respectively. In one of the most weird games in NCC cage history, the Bobcats registered their only loss, in conference play, to the Kearney Antelopes. Eight Peru players were banished via the foul route in a rugged encounter which lasted three overtimes with Kearney winning 75-70. Peru played the entire third overtime with three men on the court. After leading 32-31 at the halftime, the Kylemen pulled away in the fiinal minutes to top York, 73-51. An effective stall in the final moments accounted for a 50-46 victory over Wesleyan. A zone defense, which was used by Peru for the only time of the season, halted the capital city quintet. The Blue and White five set a new school scoring record as Doane was trounced 85-44. Jack Hallstrom paced the scoring with 19 points. Hallstrom and Eilers led the way in a 64-46 victory over Midland. In the most thrilling game of the season Peru nipped Bob Korte and his Kearney teammates, 65-44. Subforward, Bill Johnson, was the hero as the Ong sophomore sparked a late rally. Back row: Powers.
