Kroeger King Nelson
QNLY four of last year's lettermen answered Coach Lowery's call for basketball
practice on Monday, November 13, Marcel Nelson, Don Schwartz, Jack King, and
Fred Kroeger. New men on the squad were Stanley Palm, Doc Schmidt, Ed. McCollow,
Jerry Deiss, Stan Pelequin, Newel Olson, Ken Rasmussen, and George Noyes.
The Red and White opened the season with a 38-29 loss to a strong St. Olaf team
at Northheld, Minnesota. The game was fast but quite ragged as Coach Lowery used
all his men in trying out different combinations. St. Olaf led at half time 23-15. King
in a scoring spurt after the half cut their lead to three points. Then St. Olaf in a
Counter-attack built up a nine-point lead, which they held until the final gun. King and
Nelson showed up the best, but as a whole the Falcons showed much promise of becoming
a Hue team.
The Falcons next journeyed to St. Paul, Minnesota, where they defeated Macalester
College 52-51 in a fast exciting game. The lead changed hands several times and, except
for immediately after the half when the Macmen held a nine point lead, the teams were
within four points of each other. Kroeger, Schmidt, and Nelson were the big guns for
the Falcons in their thrilling first win of the season.
The second non-conference victory was scored at the expense of St. Olaf College
of Northfield, Minnesota, by a score of 52-43. Kroeger, with his 19 points, led the Falcon
attack in this hotly contested game. The game was a thriller from start to finish, and it
was not until the closing minutes that the Falcons pulled away to their nine-point lead.
King and Kroeger were by far the best men on the floor, both offensively and defensively.
Apparently hitting their stride, the Falcons chalked up their third non-conference
victory against Macalester College of St. Paul 53-45. The Macmen opened the scoring
with a gift shot, and from then on the Falcons came back and were never threatened.
The Falcons held a ten-point lead at the half time and, after increasing it after the rest
period, the reserves were given a chance. They showed up remarkably well and when
the game ended were playing good ball. King, Schwartz, and Kroeger led the Falcon
attack with their accurate shooting and snaring of rebounds.
