:EYILEEFJ T1: HE Falls cagers scored four successive conference victories when they trounced La Crosse, Stout twice, and Eau Claire in rapid order. Superior then handed the Red and White quintet their only conference defeat when they caged a lucky shot from the center of the Hoor in the last minute of play to give them a 28-30 victory. The La Crosse and Eau Claire cagers again tasted defeat at the hands of Coach Klandrudis fighting five after hard fought battles. In the last game of the season Superioris championship aspirations received a rude jolt when iiBud" Manion sank the most sensational one hand shot ever seen at RivereFalls from the corner of the gym to win the final game and the state championship. The 1929 basketball season is one of the most successful that any River Falls athletic team has ever enjoyed. The four veterans, Hunt, iiNor" Manion, Segerstrom, and iiBud,i Manion, climaxed their eventful athletic careers by winning their second state championship for River Falls in their three years of athletic competition. ttBILL" HUNT tiBilPi Hunt was the highest scorer on the team for the last three years. During both 1928 and 1929, besides being one of the highest scorers in the con- ference, he was selected as all-state forward. He possessed unusual skill at close range shooting, and his height made him feared on rebound shots. His deceptive southpaw dribbling often enabled him to slip by opposing guards for in-shots. Besides be- ing the main cog in the Falls offense itBiIPi was a clever defensive player; seldom did he leave his man uncovered. It was his clever floor work and cool consistent playing that every opposing defense was coached to meet. CLARENCE ALFONSE One Hundred Nineteen

Duetui' mmmmmmm Miller, rangy Shell Lake center, "Bob" Sutherland, shifty River Falls forward, and iiJohnnyii Schlicht, clever Marshfield guard. Other members of the squad who deserve special mention for their consistent playing are: Alfonse, a reserve Nommn'r MANION guard, Anderson, a rangy center, and Larson and Wile, speedy forwards. The Red and White basketeers played sev- eral games with midwestern colleges to condi- tion themselves for the coming season. On their westernhtrip they played such schools as Carleton, Macalester, St. Thomas, and the University of Minnesota. River Falls dis- played real basketball ability when they foreed the highly heralded St. Olaf cagers to play two overtime periods before they could sink the winning basket. CAPTAIN MANION By COACH KLANDRUD nNor" was the outstanding player on the defense, and was always given the tough assignment in every game. He was a good floor man, had a keen eye for the basket, and possessed a fighting spirit that would never say quit. He led his teammates in true River Falls style and much of the success of the championship season was the result of iiNorist, play- ing. At center or forward, he could be relied upon to check the attack of his opponents. He is going to be a hard man to replace next year, and we shall always remember his part in the championship fight.

The game was a see-saw aHair, which was hard fought and exciting throughout. Showing much improvement over pre-season games, the Red and White cagers outplayed the La Crosse team in all departments of the game. However, their failure to sink short shots kept the game exciting. The home boys were trailing 9-10 at the half, but the sharp-shooting of Bill Hunt in the last period gave Klandrud,s warriers a lead which they never relinquished. Throughout the game it was the fine guarding of Captain Manion and Segerstrom that held the La Crosse offense in check despite their threatening rallies. Suther- land and Schlicht, new Falls hoop artists, played a good defensive game and showed splendid team work. RIVER FALLS 36, EAU CLAIRE 33 N the second conference game of the season Eau Claire proved a decided sur- prise when they forced the Red and White basketeers to travel at top speed to cap a thrilling 36-33 victory. Although the Falls cagers were rather disorganized in their floor work, they showed the old traditional Red and White spirit when they rallied in the crucial moments to win the game. It was the uncanny basket shoot- ing of "Seegh and "Bill" as well as the stellar defensive playing of "Nor" and "Johnny" that stopped Eau Claire. "Stretchh Miller made his debut to the Falls fans in this game and gave promise of developing into a sensational pivot. Lman. The home boys took the lead at the start of the game, but it was only the plucky fighting of Klandrudis men that halted the aggressive Eau Claire cagers in their quest for victory. The most ver- satile player on the squad was "814th who could May forward or guard with equal ability. A bril- liant defensive player, cool, heady amt de- pendable. It was "Bud's" one hand shot that beat the Superior yel- low jackets with seventeen seconds to play. HSeeg," the spark plug of the offense, was in every play. A deceptive drib- bler, a good shot, and a flashy guard. His stel- lar basket shoal- ing and colorful defensive play was the feature of the LaCrosse game.
