They played better defense, ouled less, and made more free throws and field goals and kept heir poise when Algona threat- med to pull away in the first half. ALGONA on the other hand went to pieces in the third quarter, threw the ball away, gave the Lions easy shots and generally conducted themselves anything but like the No. 9 and No. 10 rating they were accorded in the state a few hours before. Actually, nobody really figured the Bulldogs were that good and after Clear Lake got through with them, even the optimists were shaking their heads. Algona led much of the firsl half.

He bagged eight points in the final couple of minutes to finish with 17 to lead Algona scorers but he was overshadowed by Morisky all the way. The big center hit 22 points and outrebounded Teeter time and again. Teammate Don Anderson meshed 14 and did a fine job of bringing the ball down the floor against the pressing antics of Espe and Tom Claude.
