Upper Des Moines Tuesday, Feb. 6, 1968 Bears Sock Newman, Get Revenge For A Defeat Garrigan's Golden Bears avenged one of their two defeats this season with an easy 62-44 victory over Mason City Newman before a large crowd here Friday night. The win, 16th straight at home for Coach Steve McCall's charges, also upped the season mark to 12-2. Next game for the Bears is a meeting with Carroll Kuemper there this Saturday night. Garrigan downed Kuemper, 43-36, in the first round of the recent CYO Tournament here Jan. 21. Newman, 62-48 winner over the Bears in the second game of the season there Dec. 2, was never in this one, despite a flock of first- half fouls on the locals. Garrigan rushed the Knights with a frantic defense that limited the visitors to 44 shots all night. The defense also forced errors and set up 11 steals, all instrumental in the win. After an early 1-1 tie, and 3-2 Garrigan lead, it became apparent the Bears could just about select the final margin. MULLER HITS With big Jack Muller canning half the points, the locals roared to a 16-8 first quarter lead. Muller was also top board man, while John Winkel, whose scoring was off, led the theft corps. The rampage went on, and with just less than two minutes remaining in the half, Garrigan's lead had zoomed to 29-13. The visitors then hit seven points before the buzzer and Garrigan had a 29-20 edge after 16 minutes. Garrigan shooting really warmed during the second half onslaught - and in the first two minutes of the third period, the GHS bulge went to 34-20. Joe Kienast and Rich Wolf, Newman starters held scoreless during the first half, then led a slight surge that chopped the margin to 46-34 at the three-quarter mark. BIG LEADS The Bears led twice by 10 points early in the final stanza and it was 53-42 with four minutes remaining. Then Jim Walker, Mike Elbert and Kevin O'Brien led a rally that upped the margin to 62-42 before a final bucket by the losers. Muller wound up as the game's top scorer with 21 points. He fouled out late in the fray, but hit nine of 12 field goal attempts during the night. O'Brien counted 14 after being shut out through the first period and Dave McCarthy canned 10. Joe Wolf was the only Knight in double figures as he counted 12. Muller also topped Garrigan under the boards, nabbing 13 rebounds, while Steve Wingert came up with eight and O'Brien seven. Gary Luecht of the visitors was tops under the boards as he got 15 for Newman. Winkel came up with three steals for the winners, while Muller, O'Brien, McCarthy and Walker each got two. Garrigan held a 37-34 edge under the boards and an 11-3 margin in steals.
