Glendale walloped Bakersfield. j 69-31. Saturday-night in the southern California city to install themselves as clear-cut favorites for the return match here Wednesday night. The Vaqueros threw , a rangy, rugged quintet npainst the Renegades and, coupling shooting accuracy with aggressiveness, scored a one-sided victory. According to Cbristensen, the type of basketball played by the Vaqueros is completely different from that soon in the San Joanuin Ii Valley. | Glendale employed, an aggressive, forcing style of play that is allowed by southland officials, but is frowned upon here. The difference in officiating policies"' could uwke possible a Renegade upset, according to the B. J. C. mentor. Bakersfield will-hove-to struggle to make up for its lack of height, for in the first meeting of the teams Glendale's taller cngers controled most of the rebounds and stifled the Renegade offense. The Renegades gained an extra day of rest between two difficult games when it was announced this 'morning by" Athletic Director Ed Simbnsen that the contest with'the i 17. C. L. A. frosh, originally"-scheduled for Friday, will be played Saturday night'instead.
