.V/OLVERINES WIN NO. 3 Wilber-Clatonia deck Citians 81-63 By AL R1DDINGTON Sports Editor, Daily Sun \VILBER — "They really hustled. In fact, right from [he Mart down to the final minuies.' 1 exclaimeJ a very pleased Coach Doyle Denny. It was a pleasing Friday ni^ht tor Ccii'jh Denny and hi.s Wilber-Clatonia cagers, they had just rudely jolted defending State Class C champ Pawnee City, not by a hair-raising outcome, but a top-drawer threshing at 81-63. "No doubt, .several Wolverines turned in dandy all-around jobs, but getting down to brass tacks, it wa s a great team performance." Coach Denny explained after hi.s Wolverines had notched their third win in four outings. The "run-run" Wolverines shot themselves into a narrow advantage by the close of the first period, but then went to work and salted away a 34-25 halftime advantage. The third period proved to be a hectic quarter for the Wolverines as Larry Kibble's Indians came roaring back after the intermission rest period. At one point in the third, Pawnee City nibbled the ad- vantage down to 3 points, but along came Joel Bergmeyer to toss in two charity shots. Pawnee City hod outscored thv Wolverines in the third, but Wilber-Clatonia bounced back and outscored the visitors going down the stretch by 15 points. Personal fouls hurt Pawnee City as th? Indians lost Randy Percival, Sterling Barker, and Bruce Drogo. but th.: damage had first been inflicted by the Wolverines. Although Wilber-Clatonia took advantage of charity loses to beat the Indians at the stripe, the Wolverines also beat the visitors from the field. Led by Bergmeyer's 14 of Ifi tosses at the line, Wilbe.r- Clatonia outscored Pawnee City in that department by 10. And. led by Bergmeyer from the field, the Wolverines held a 56-18 advantage, point-wise. Bergmeyer, a 6-1) senior lotterman, in addition to being credited with six assists, manufactured 26 points. But, as Coach Denny said, it was a team effort, and three more Wolverines landed in the double figures. Gary D a m k r o g e r , 6-1 veteran, pumped in 20; Gsrald Wood.

The MUDECAS of "today" is a far cry from back in the "good old days" as far as the number of schools entered is concerned. The tournament is still the oldest of Its kind in Nebraska prep circles, but its reputation of being the largest is certainly slipping.
