Littlest Ute Stars as Redskins Bomb Pacific Utah Rocks Tigers in 90-72 Tilt By Bob Williams Tribune Sports Writer Skip Kroeger, the littlest Ute. had his biggest night as Utah University tamed Pacific University's basketball Tigers, 90-7?,, Monday in the Ute wigwam. THE 3,503 fans who ventured out on a snowy night saw the Redskins make it three wins in three outings and an improving Utah defense that harried the tame Tabbies into error after error. Kroeger led the pressing tactics and made some nifty passes as well as scoring 24 points, high for the Utes. The only place Kroeger came off second best was in the department of spectacular falls. Re was ridden into the fence on a driving layup but bounced up abort. Not so with reserve forward Q. C. Taylor, who teamed with Tiger Dary! Severns for a collision that would do credit to the pro footballers. He took a few minutes to regain his feet but remained in action. Pacific's three big men dominated the rebounds as Charles Strambler, Leo Middleton and Bill Wilson grabbed 14 apiece. Wilson led all scorers with 28 while. Middletcn canned 22, mostly OP. tip-ins. UTAH'S Doug Moon bom- tarded 16 points from outside and, along with Kroeger, was responsible for breaking up the zone defense Pacific began the game with. George Fisher canned 10, B. Granville Lash came off the bench for an uproarious 12 and Chuck Currington and Taylor added six each. THE REDSKINS caught the visitors time and again with a pressing defense, stealing the ball and forcing bad passes, to overcome a 59-54 loss in rebounding. And each swipe saw the fast break in action. Coach Jack Gardner admitted to some pleasure in the development of his charges. He did considerable Joggling with the lineup to get another lock at bis combinations. Centers Dennis Couch, Currington and, later, Bob Pence, worked mainly with guards Kroeger, Moon and Berkeley G. Lash and forwards Fisher, Spence Thurgood, Dan Hawes and Taylor. Before the night was over the Utes had cleared the benches. Pacific shuttled 11 men in and out of the lineup without finding me right answer to Utah's fast break. UTAH HIT a good streak midway in the first half to pull in front at 25-11, saw Pacific come back within seven at 43-36 at the Intermisison. Another streak in the second half pulled the game out of reach as a quick burst of points soun the Scoreboard to 84-60. Next outing for the Redskins comes Wednesday against Texas A-M in the Ute emporium. In the intra-squad frosh game the Whites, led by Ken Belka's 26 points, downed the Reds, 103-81. Dan Marsh of the Reds netted 25 counters. Utah Staters Roll Tonight Against Tall Texas Ags Chuck Currington (25) gets off a hook shot against University of Pacific. Others in the action are Redskins Skip Kroeger (15) and Q. C. Taylor, Pacific players Bill Wilson (14), Charles Strambler (12) and Dick Davey (22), far left. fait f ak* ft ibtme Salt Lake City, Utah — Tuesday Morning — December Special to The Tribune LOGAN—Coach LaDeU Andersen and his Utah State bas-i keteers have itchy trigger fingers. They've been out of action for a week, will break the spell Tuesday against Texas A-M at Logan. Andersen has tested his two Bounded troops, Wayne Estes and Larry Angle, the starting forwards, in practice, now wants to see how they respond under game conditions. Estes sprained an ankle against Fresno State and Angle broke the pinkie finger on his right hand in practice last week. BOTH PROBABLY will start but how long they'll be able to play, or how well, is another pair of questions. Angle has an aluminum splint, curved to fit the contour of a basketball, on his injured finger. THE TEXAS crew is a big one —big in all dimensions—and is expected to play a zone defense, two more reasons Andersen wants to play this one. He needs an indicator on Utag response against size and against a zone. Center Troy Collier has the best scoring average to date, 26.5 per game in the two .USU out- Knap Mentioned For WSU Post Special to The Tribune PULLMAN, WASH. - The name of Utah State's Tony Knap was mentioned prominently here Monday as the s e a r c h for a new football coach at Washington State got under way. KXAP WAS one of several coaches whose names popped up in conversations. Knap is highly regarded as a football coach and his Utah State team had an impressive 8-2 record this fall. Contacted at his home in Logan, Knap said that he has not applied for the job at WSU. :ngs. Estes is next at 23, Angle has 11.5 and LeRoy Walker an evt-n \1. Texas A-M in its only outing downed Houston, 61-58, wilh star guard Bennis Lenox canning 15, the same as 6-8 center John Beaslcy. Bill Gasway, 6-6, and Tim TImmermati, 6-7, give the Texags a tall front line and they weigh between 200 and 220 pounds each. The fifth starter, Gary Watts, has scored 11 in two games, Lenox teams with Lynn Merritt, 6-5, at the guards. Thn Tex- ag offense has Lenox directing the attack and all four big men working the boards, which could account for the fact they out- rebounded Houston by 23. THE TEXAGS move to Utah for a Wednesday night duel and the Utaggios next open a two- game road swing at Creighton Saturday and Iowa State Monday. Brigham Young plays host to Oklahoma State Thursday in the home opener at Catville. SHOP TONIGHT TILL 9...PARK FREE 1963 Page 21 Whodunnit ty Marion Dunn The timing was off because midnight had passed, taking the Cinderella hour with it, but the Ritz Classic bowling team, bidding for the 1963 Salt Lake City team championships, was about to start a rags to riches story unmatched in Utah bowling history. It was exactly a week ago. The setting was the Bonwood Bowl and the Ritz Classic squad was just starting the 10th frame of its last game in a situation loaded with drama. How that 10th frame turned out would determine the team championship. The M & M Distributing team held the lead with a 2,972 total. The Ritz Classic team needed four doubles in the 10th frame to take the championship away from the leaders. To add to the drama, two of the Ritz Classic bowlers, Paul Chase and Hy Hudson, also bowled for M & M. Chase was the leadoff man and be bowled two strikes cut the needed total to three doubles. to PACIFIC G F T 3 1-1 7 Sirambler 12 4.4 28 Wilson 4-B 22 Middleton 1-2 2 Davev 1 Schee!

Tom Parrish came up with a spare and the team needed two doubles with two men to bowl. Steve Buell doubled and now the goal was within reach, but Hy Hudson, who had a strike up in the ninth, left the 2-4-5 pins and the bid for the title fell short. That was the way it seemed then. But a check of the scores during the week turned up an unusual mistake — the M & M Distributing team had been given 10 pins too many in one of its games and the decision was reversed, giving the Ritz-CIassic team the title. That was a week ago. Sunday the Ritz Classic team ^bowled again in the Salt Lake Travel- ~"'ing League.
