. . m -mawm , . k 'pwiw mm smm3m ' . RIVER FALLS 26, LA CROSSE 23 RIVER Falls started her conference schedule by winning the first game from La Crosse by a 26-23 score. 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.

: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

RIVER FALLS 36, STOUT 9 LED by the sentinal basket shooting of ttStretch" Miller, River Falls smothered Stout in a deluge of baskets in the third game of the season. The Stoutonians started very cautiously with a slow breaking offense. However, it was not long before the Red and White hoop artists began to swish the ball through the rim from all corners of the gym with clock-like regularity. Miller and Hunt were the big siege guns in the Falls attack, breaking through the Stout defense for a total of twenty-four points. Stout made only two field goals during the game. These came during the last five minutes of play when Coach Klandrud sent his second team into the fray. The feature of the game was the iron-clad defense displayed by the Falls quintet. Their lightning fast team work completely bafHed the Stout team. . RIVER FALLS 33, STOUT 24 33-24 victory over Stout gave the cardinal cagers their fourth conference vic- tory of the season. To even the score after Stout took a momentary lead on long shots, Segerstrom and Captain Manion dropped the ball through the rim for three field goals. At this stage of the game "Bill" Hunt, the big Bertha in the Red and White attack, went on a scoring spree, making a total of twenty points. The Falls held a 16-12 lead at the half, which was increased by the infallible sharp-shooting of Hunt during the second half. In spite of being rough the game was fast and exciting throughout. During the closing period the Red and White were satisfied to hold their lead and play a safe game. The guarding of Schlicht and ttBud" Manion was the bright spot of the defensive play of Klandrud,s cagers. When the elems-om. opened HJohrmy" was placed at de- fensive guard, where he did mVuch to keep the score of the opposition low. With plenty of endurance and lots of pluck he proved a good shot when on the defense. ttStretch" prov- ed a tower of strength at the pivot position. He was a good shot and his height made him dangerous under the basket as well as at center. J OHN SCHLICHT EDWARD MILLER One Hundred Twenty-One
