Behind the efforts of cage stars Rick Friedman and Bob Kelly, the Knights defeated Denison here Wednesday afternoon, 73-68,.on the Monarchs' all-weather track. Friedman captured his specialty, the high jump, with a leap of six-feet, using the "Fosbury Flop" for the first time in his career and won the 440 yard dash in 53.6. Kelly, known for his quickness and playmaking on the basketball floor, won the 100 yard dash in 10.7 and the 180 yard low hurdles in 21.9 and tied teammate Kirk Lengeling for top honors in the 220 yard dash in 24.7. "I was real pleased with most of our performances," commented Davis afterwards. "I thought we ran real well in the cold weather." "I just hope each meet we improve our times," added Davis who will send his squad to the Holstein Relays Friday. Besides Friedman and Kelly, Davis also cited the performances of Tim Gradoville who placed first in the mile at 4:45.9 and second in the half and Dave Schwaller who took first in the pole vault at 11 feet, six inches. "Gradoville's time in the mile was just one second off Russ Rupiper's best time of a year ago," Davis said. Rupiper is now running at the University of Northern Iowa. "And Schwaller started real well," continued the Knight head man. "He equalled his best height of a year ago.'' Sports Glances Restore Dunk The National Basketball Rules Committee restored dunking to college basketball.
