RIVER FALLS 28, SUPERIOR 30
W HEN Captain Di Marco of the Superior Yellowjackets sank two long shots
in the closing seconds of play River Falls lost her only conference game
of the season. Although the game was a heart-breaker fof the Red and White to
lose, it was the most exciting and hair-raising battle ever staged on the Superiori
court. The Yellowjackets ran wild during the first few minutes of play, running
up a 11-1 score. However, as the Falls defense tightened, the tide of battle
changed, and the half ended with the score 14-7. River Falls came right back at
the start of the second period to tie the score in the flrst ten minutes of play. From
then on the game was fiercely fought, the lead alternating back and forth several
times. The entire Falls team played great ball, never once slackening their pace.
RIVER FALLS 36, LA CROSSE 26
L A Crosse was decisively trounced by the fast playing midget five in the sixth
conference game. The stellar floor play and basketshooting of Segerstrom
was the big factor in the Red and White victory. His four field goals in the first
half gave the home boys a commanding lead. The Falls attack was functioning to
perfection; time after time, Captain "Nor" Manion, Hunt, and "Bud" Manion
brought the ball down the court in typical Meanwell style. They had no trouble
in penetrating the strong La Crosse defense for several short shots under the has-
ket. The game was played at top speed, which resulted in much fouling and rough

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.

RIVER FALLS 29, EAU CLAIRE 19
N February 26 Eau Claire was humbled to the tune of 29-19 by Klandrud,s
basketeers. There were no individual stars on the Falls team; they all
played a bang-up game and showed a lot of fight in bringing the ball down the
floor. The game started with fast playing by each team, and it was not' long be-
fore the Red and White ran up a 10-4 score. Although Hunt was heavily guarded
in this game, he left his shadow behind him often enough to lead his team-mat'es
in scoring as well as playing an outstanding floor game. During the second half
the Falls worked through" the Eau Claire defense for three short baskets in rapid
succession, taking a ten point lead. Coach Klandrud sent in the second team
during the last quarter, which held EauClaire well in check.
RIVER FALLS 27, SUPERIOR 26
T HE fighting Red and White five won the state championship when they re-
pelled the onslaught of the Superior Yellowjackets by a score of 27-26 in the
last game of the season. T 0 add to the thrills 0f the battle, the winning bakske't
was not made until the last seventeen seconds of play. nBill" Hunt started the
classic out right when he tipped one through the hoop at the start of the game.

ended. When the second half got under way sensational playing by iiBud" and
"Bill" gave the Red and White cagers a six point lead. But great shooting by the
flashy Di Marco' gave Superior a one point advantage in the closing seconds of
