ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED , JAN. 9, 1974 Pag* 4 "We didn't play our style of ball and it cost us the game," said coach Ben Hix after his Lakers were nipped by MAC at Mason City, 67-66 Tuesday night. "Mason City deserved to win it," Hix added. "They made us play their game." The loss was the first for the Lakers, who are ranked 15th nationally. ILCC's record is 10-1 on the year. With 30 seconds left in the game, the Lakers were up by one, but a turnover gave MAC the ball under their own bucket. They made the shot with six seconds left on the clock. Bob Grems threw up a "desperation" shot at the buzzer and missed. "When you are undefeated, that first loss is always the toughest to take." Hix commented, "but I think we learned a lot. If we want to beat the better teams, we will have to take control early." The Lakers never did get off to a running start. Trailing by one most of the first half, the locals could not get the fast break working. "I'd have to give a lot of credit to Mason City's defense. They held Grems and Bruce to their lowest scoring nights of the year." Bob Grems finished with 10 points; Henry Bruce only- netted sLx. Al Dunning led the Lakers with 18 points. Brother Dave was second in points with 14. Doug Brandt had eight; Dick Merron hit for six and Wayne Hess connected for four. "Al and Dave played well. Dick came off the bench and did a real good job. too." The Lakers host Waldorf Thursday night, hoping to get back on the winning track. "1 think we learned our lesson. We know we have to run and keep them off-balance. We were disappointed last night, but I think we can recover from it. "If the stands are full, it'll help a lot," Hix concluded.
