CUDNEY, MAY, WULF, NELSON BASKETBALL l 93 7 COACH LOWERY'S call for basketball candidates was answered by a large turnout, including five lettermen from last year's championship five. These men were Captain Walter Herkal, an all-state forward for three seasons, Russell Nystrom, last year's all-state guard, James May, Stanley Torgerson, and Merton Wulf. After two weeks of intensive practice, Coach Lowery sent his boys into action against Augsburg in a non-conference game. The Falcons got off to a fine start, defeating the Auggies by a 42 to 28 score. I-Ierkal paced both teams in scoring with thirteen points. The Augsburg victory was followed with a win over Macalester, Minnesota State College Champions, by a 31 to 25 count. Herkal, again, led the scoring with eleven points, but was closely followed by Nystrom, May, and Wulf. The Falcons continued their winning ways by beating Oshkosh 55 to 39, and St. Olaf 54 to 30. In these two games, the play of Nystrom and Herkal was outstanding. In a return game with St. Olaf, the Falcons again won by the score of 33 to 32. To close the non-conference season Coach Lowery took his squad on a three-day t.our of the southern part of the state, meeting Milwaukee and Oshkosh, The trip proved to be disastrous for the locals, as they were beaten in both games, 39 to 32 by Milwaukee and 33 to 27 by Oshkosh. ' In the opening game of the conference schedule the Falcons were pitted against one of the strongest teams in the conference, the Superior Yellowjackets. In a sensational battle, the Falcons came out on the long end of a 40 to 38 score. 51441

,aff eff-ev aww fuffvffffv . . ff S. TORGERSON, SKYBERG, NYSTROM BASKETBALL 1 9 3 7 NYSTROM and Herkal scored fourteen points each in turning back the highly touted Northerners. The defensive work of May4was outstanding in that he stopped many Yellowjacket drives for the basket. Following the Superior game the Red and White Cagers journeyed to Menomonie to play Stout. This was a slow, uninteresting game, which the Falcons won by a 26 to 17 score, The Blue Devils presented a fair defense, but not much offense. The defense did, however, succeed in holding the high scoring Falcons way below their average number of points. After the victory over Stout, the locals met the strong La Crosse squad on the Falcon court, coming out this time on the short end of a 35 to 34 count. This game was featured by one of the most unusual freak shots ever seen on a local basketball court which proved to be the deciding factor in the game. Herkal and Nystrom again paced the Falcons in scoring, getting twelve and nine points respectively. ' In the return game with Stout, the Falcons chalked up their third conference victory, turning in a 37 to 28 win. Coach Lowery used the whole squad in this game and each one played good ball. Individual scoring honors were taken by Nystrom, who scored fourteen points. The Falcons suffered their second conference setback at the hands of the Eau Claire Zornadoes in a tight game by a 45 to 43 score. Mert Wulf paced the Falcon attack, garnering sixteen points. However, his loss on fouls with four minutes remaining, was probably the main reason for the Falcon defeat. L1451
