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 I A n .I I ' Alt 1' A J Tlr.! .1 U I! Play.

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

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.

Another for e L j ward of known : y ' a b 1 li t y was "Red." He was a wonderful shot. efast and shifty. "Amie" was the leading offensive reserve on the team. Exception- ally fast, a clever floor man as well as a good shot. RNOLD LARSON One Hundred Twenty-Three
