Takes 2 Overtimes But Cyclones Take Bears . . ' •/ By CONRAD DOWNING Take two second overtime field goals by a veteran center, five starters who played the entire game and several hundred cases of badly jangled nerves and you'll > come up with the score of last night's Ottawa-Turner thriller — 60-57 — in a double overtime. The Cyclones turned back a determined effort by the Bears to score their third East Kansas League victory, but it took the best part of an evening before they accomplished the feat before a standing room-only home crowd. Lanky Harry Morton polished off two field goals in the final three minues, but he had some flashy helpers in Eddie Davidson, Jim Lewis, Roy Dunn and Ronnie Mendell. Coach H. K. Stevens relied on his top five guns as he made no substitutions and saw his strategy work to perfection. Morton was the top scorer for Ottawa with a 7 of 17 effort from the field for 18 points. Lewis, experiencing his best night of the season, bucketed 14 points as he hit 5 of 11 field goal attempts. Dunn was instrumental in the last quarter as it was his field goal that sent the game into the overtime to give him 13 points for the night. Davidson connected on 2 of 12 shots and 9 points while Mendell hit 2 of 12 fieders and 6 points. Dunn potted 6 of 12 2- points attempts. Ottawa looked in great shape as it ran out a string in the opening quarter, with Morton chucking in 9 points. Don Pankey, a thorn in the Cyclones' side all evening, kept Turner in the quarter as he scored 8 points in the last % minutes to trail 16-13 at the end of the first. Jim Lewis, sharp from the field early in the game, chipped in 3 free throws and two field goals along with Morton and Dunn's baskets to jump the Cyclones to a 10-point edge, 27-17, early in the second stanza. The Bears couldn't out-rebound or outshoot the home team and trailed 31-23 at the intermission. The third period was a low- scoring affair as Ottawa picked up 10 counters while the Bears were plucking off 11 to trail 41-36 by the end. Turner's Jim Tinsely took the final frame tip off from Morton, and the Bears turned out the guard as Joe Mendez hit for two. This was offset by Davidson's long shot from the side to trail 42-38. Pankey, who drove the Cyclones crazy with his drives and fakes, drew two free shots to close the gap to 42-40. Ottawa Joe Mendez who stepped up and took the ball and a shot but fouled tied the contest at 42-42. Pankey continued to harrass Ottawa as he belted out more fielders, but he chose the wrong time to drive and had a collision with Ottawa's Roy Dunn and closed out his scoring via his fifth foul with 26 points. But he had placed his team ahead for the first time, 52-51, with 2:23 left to play. Dunn promptly hit a free throw to tie it 52-52 and then turned around to knot the game at 54-54 following George Miller's jump shot and send the contest into a 3-minute overtime. The first overtime saw Ottawa control the tip but lose the ball to Turner which stalled after it rebounded Harry Morton's second free throw to trail 55-54. Joe Mendez looked like he might end up the hero of the evening after his field goal, but George Miller fouled Mendell with the Bears leading 56-55 with 52 seconds left to play. Mendell missed the top half of his free throw but connected on the second to tie the bout 56-56 and it held up to send the contest into a second overtime. Turner took the ball in the last overtime and Don Webb took a shot but missed with Harry Morton catching the carom. With 1:10 left, Morton used his swing-shot jumper to connect and send the Red ahead, 58-56. At this point, Eddie Davidson pulled the game out with a daring steel and was fouled. Davidson eyed the basket but his toss bounced to the side into the hands of Morton who immediately put it back up for a goal and a 60-56 advantage. Don Webb hit a free for Turner to wind up the scoring. r Morton pulled in 19 rebounds to make himself the outstanding player of the game.

VAN CLEAVE BURLINGAME — Melvem's Panthers won the Osage County League Tournament, beating Burlingame, 51-31, with tough defensive tactics here last night. A record crowd in Burlingame's new gymnasium left only enough room for the players. The paid attendance for the final game was just three short of 1,100. With the non-paying spectators, the crowd exceeded the previous high of 1,200. Coach Gene Otis used a zone defense .that kept two Panthers between Burlingame's great Bob Masters and the goal. But Master's, 6-foot senior finishing this season four years of varsity basketball at Burlingame High, still scored 21 of the Bearcats' 31 points. Bob hit 33 points on Tuesday night as the Bearcats eliminated Overbrook with its first loss of the season. He scored 23 Wednesday night when the Bearcats beat Carbondale. Wayne Cranwell led the Panthers with 19 points. But Jim PSSST! IT WON'T WORK Newman's ear, and the message going to get anywhere with that ment title.

Coach Otis' offensive patterns produced plenty of close-in shots for the Panthers. The percentage made wasn't too high either, but it was enough.

Coach J. W. Emerson must have had a rabbit's foot in his pocket as he shuffled his deck of players to get the most mileage from each one. Loren Shofner came through after bagging only two points in the first half for a 15- point effort to lead the resurgent Twisters on the comeback trail. Trailing midway in the second quarter, Doug Schultz ignited a rally with a 2-pointer, followed by Shofner's only bucket of the half to trail 12-20. Earle Doman closed out the half with a bucket to cut the margin to 16-22. Ofkwa scrambled during the third stanza and stayed close enough that a hot streak or a cold one on the Bears' part would spell a chance. As if on command, the Bear's slumped to 3 field goals during the period but Ottawa couldn't capitalize as it mustered only 3 goals to trail, 37-34, at the end of the third period. Turner came back after the tip to score a basket for a 39-34 edge, but Daryl Jameson and Shofner cut out a slice with goals to trail 39-38. The advantage see-sawed back and forth until 2-32 left in the game, with the Bears ahead 46-42, when Shofner tossed up a try and edged within a basket, 46-44. Ottawa retrieved a shot and brought the ball down but Jameson missed only to have Terry Davis make the grab for the tying goal, 46-46, with :34 left to play. It didn't take Terry Davis long to collect his fifth foul but no harm came of it as Jerry Turley hit the front end of a free throw to push OHS ahead, 47-46, for the first time. Turner tallied three points during the period but Turley hit two charity tosses to knot the count at 49-49 at the end of the first overtime. Turley hustled into the second overtime and bucketed two free throws while Earle Doman was working on a 1-point play. Loren Shofner compounded the fracture as he ripped the net for a goal with :23 left to play to push the Red to a 55-52 lead. Shofner led the way with 17 points, but Jerry Turley, who scored 5 of his points in the overtime, was one of the standouts. Earle Doman was the ace of the backboards with 12 caroms, while Turley had 9 and Schultz 7. Doug Schultz hit 11 counters, Daryl Jameson 10, Jerry Turley 8, Earle Doman 9 and Terry Davis 4.
