3YCAMORBTW HANOVER; ACES VANQUISH I. C. Two Winners Collide Tonight for Trip to Kansas City Tourney BY CARL JONES Indiana State's Sycamores and Evansville's Purple Aces will clash in the feature game tonight to determine Indiana's representative to the N. A. I. B. tourney week at Kansas City. next Both teams flashed high scoring in last night's preliminary j Evansville overpowering | Central. 90 to 81. and | smooth working veterans i Hanover's Panthers, 85' 66. • conditioning scored 51 points in ! first half and didn't slow up j in the last half as the Aces: to the taller Greyhounds in! the opener. Little Joe Hafcle and lanky Bob Sakel paced the Purple Aces scoring with 22 and 20 points respectively. Woody McBride, diminutive sparkplug of the i combination, took| From honors for the game with his j 24-point total. IN THE NIGHTCAP, States offense was at its best against Andy Taff & Co. Removing all local doubt as to his ability, Taff rang up 25 points, but his efforts alone were not nearly enough as State grabbed an early lead and never was headed. Don McDonald won State's highpoint honors with 17 points, although he and the remainder of the starting forwards and guards played only half the game. Coach John Longfellow sent four reserves into the contest as State held a 32 to 19 lead with six minutes to go in the first half and the regulars were on the bench all except six minutes of the last half. Jftn Berger scored 13 points to pace the reserve combination while it was in the ball game. Lenny Rzeszewskl, Clarence Walker and Jim Hans all took turns at guarding Taff. Hans had the best luck at curtailing the Panther great, limiting him to two points in six minutes. THE EVANSVTLLE-Indiana Central game was closely contested for the first nine minutes. At that point, with Central leading 19 to 17, tie Aces caught fire and scored ten straight points to take a 27 to 19 lead and after that the Greyhounds were never back in the game. With Hafele and Sakel scoring consistently on fast breaks and effective screens and blocks, the Pocket City five ran up its halftime lead of 51 to 35. Nine points was the closest Indiana Central . came in the last half as they trailed 64 to 55 with 11 to go and the final nine-point margin of 90 to 81. McBride was firing strikes from all angles and he received 19 points worth of help from the bulky Dwight Swails,,who scored nine of his tallies from the foul line. The Greyhounds defense, however, was not strong enough to stop the tricky Evansville scoring machine and the final outcome wasn't in much doubt during the second half. STATE WAS a smooth working machine in its encounter with the Panthers and after they took over a 14 to 5 after five minutes of play, it was merely a question of how high the score was going to mount. After the 14 to 5 score at least nine points separated the two clubs for the remainder of the first half. State's halftime lead of 44 to 33 was never whittled during the last half, and four minutes after the start of the last half the Sycamore reserves, behind the scoring efforts of Berger and Walker, ran the count to 57 to 36. Berger, Walker and Bill Jagodzinski kept up the scoring pace and with 11 minutes to go the varsity forwards and guards reentered the game along with sophomore center Bob Gilbert, former Gerstmeyer ace, who was impressive during his six-minute stay. The regulars left the game again for the last five minutes, having played exactly half of the game. State has defeated Evansville twice this season and will rule as favorite tonight, but should the Aces keep up their sensational scoring pace, an upset could easily be in the making. Tonight's consolation game between Hanover and Indiana Central will begin at 7 o'clock and will mark the final collegiate appearance of Hanover's great Taff. Summaries: Evansville (90)— F.G. F.T.
