Braves Knock Threshers Out Of KCAC Lead Builders, C of E In First-Place Tie Coach Bill Frear's Ottawa University Braves, playing one of the better basketball games seen in Wilson Field House history, .knocked off the conference-leading Bethel College Threshers last night, 74 to 66. The Ottawa victory dropped Bethel into second place in the .conference standings with a mark of 8-4, as Southwestern College of Winfield moved into a first- place tie with College of Emporia by beating Friends University of : Wichita, 79-61. Ottawa now is in fifth place with a conference record of 6-6. The Braves last night made a rather unsteady start, trailing the Threshers the first five minutes of the game. A field goal by Jerry Harshaw moved Ottawa in front, 11-10, at that point. A minute later, Bob Pankratz Bethel's fast 5-10 junior, who made himself difficult to handle throughout the game, pulled the Threshers in front 14-13. A tip-in by Duane Bissitt moved the Braves in front 15-14, and a free throw by Jim Nickel of Bethel tied the count at 15-15. Ottawa moved only slightly ahead before Bethel tied the count at 23-23 and again at 27-27 with 5 minutes of playing time remaining in the first half. During the remaining five minutes, Tom Watson, Tom Kinder and Jerry Harshaw pushed the Braves up to a 42-33 advantage at half-time. At one point, shortly before the end of the first half, Ottawa had a margin of 11 points, 42-31. Bethel made a strong bid in the second half, and, with 8 minutes and 11 seconds of playing time remaining in the game, pulled to within a point of Ottawa, 58-59. Kinder and Harshaw moved the Braves up front quickly with 10 points while Bethel was scoring three points. Kinder hit four field goals and Harshaw one to bring the count, to 69-63 with 3Va minutes of playing time remaining. The Braves went into a stall type of play and drew a number of, free-throw chances on fouls as the Threshers drove for possession of the ball. Both teams played tough defensive games and were smooth on offense most of the way. Tom Kinder took individual scoring honors with 23 points, and Franw Gaeddert was high for Bethel with 20. Jerry Harshaw had a fine evening, hitting eight field goals and six free throws for a total of 22 points. The Braves hit 14 of their 20 free throw oppportunities, and the Threshers hit 10 of 12. Adding to the 45 points by Kinder and Harshaw, Tom Watson hit 15, Duane Bissitt 11 and Dean Erwin 3. While Gaeddert was top scorer for the Threshers, Bob Pankratz was tough on the Braves because of his speed, and scored 17 points.

Wellsville's Delon Jacoby gave Folks a run for individual scoring honors, getting 19 for the Eagles. Coach Al Williams also praised Bill Coughlin for his fine floor game.

The Panthers had dropped an earlier Franklin County League game to the Indians, 59-53 at Pomona and had been beaten, 43-40, by the Indians in the finals of the County League Tournament. It was different last night with Williamsburg coming from behind in the final period to pose a big 'question mark as to the outcome of the league race. •id Williamsburg has only a loss to each oilier in league play. Each must play Lane which is third place in the league and has shown capabilities of giving the leaders trouble. And the Panthers must play Princeton which turned in a fine performance in losing to Lane by three points last night. Coach Carlin Nalley's Indians fell behind in the first quarter last night, but led 27-24 at halftime and 39-36 after three quarters. Pomona's Roger Shoemaker was top scorer with 22 points.

Reddlck. 429 Cyclones Push EKL Mark To Perfect 6-0 By CONRAD DOWNING Opening up the final half of Eastern Kansas League play against the Bonner Springs Braves last night gave the Ottawa Cyclones a perfect 6-0 conference mark, but it took some mighty tall shooting and a few scary moments before the smaller, faster Braves succumbed, 61-44, at Bonner. The Cyclones utilized every weapon in their arsenal to offset the full court press and the gang coverage of Harry Morton. They got it in the shooting of Jim Lewis (15 points) and Ronnie Mendell (13). New strategy designed to keep Morton from hitting worked early in the contest but late in the game the 6-6 .all-star pounded the nets furiously to end up the top OHS scorer with 18 points. The intangible asset behind Morton's effort was his superior 19-rebound performance. Ottawa hit 23 of 59 attempts from the field for 38 per cent average, but Brave shooters only connected on 20 of 60 shots for a 33 per cent. Lewis led the percentage shooters with 6.of 11 shots, followed by Harry Morton with 8 of 16. The difference came at the free throw line where the Reds cashed in 15 of 27 as opposed to Bonner's 4 of 14. Cyclone center Morton dominated the jump ball department as he helped control 7 of 11 jumps, each giving the Reds the ball and an edge to start each quarter. Ottawa took the initial tip, and Lewis set the pattern with a short jumper to gather a lead, but Clayton McGee and Wayne McDonald came back with ahead, and the buckets to go warriors held the margin until the 3:08 mark. Holding a 9-8 margin late in the second, Lewis combined with Harry Morton for a pair of goals and ended the first frame leading 13-10. Roy Dunn and Morton dominated the backboards for 5 and 8 caroms, respectively, most of them under the defensive basket. Eddie Davidson came to life in the second frame with a pair of baskets as did Morton. With 2:16 left until the half, Wayne McDonald, who had been hitting on 30-foot jump shots, flipped in his third fielder of the quarter to cut the Braves' lead to 24-23. The Reds retaliated with Davidson's nifty jump shot and Lewis' side-saddle field goal for a 27-24 edge. However, McDonald wasn't to be denied and plunked in a goal to pull the Braves within reaching distance, 27-26, at the half. Beginning the second half McDonald went on a one-man scoring jag to jump the gap to a Bonner score, 28-27. Ottawa finally managed to pull out to a 1-point edge late in the period, but, in making the lead stronger, it took Roy Dunn three shots to pocket 2 points and a 39-36 count. Mendell countered with another basket, and the score was Ottawa 41, Bonner 36, at the end of 24 minutes.

Last night's victory edges the Cyclones closer to the league flag with perfect masterpiece to protect. Tonight, the Reds will place it on the line against the up-and-corners, the Rosedale Wildcats.

W. Emerson's Twisters used a well-organized pattern and some hustling play against the shoot and run tactics of the Bonner Braves "B" team and dropped the Indians, 45-36, in an Ottawa victory last night at Bonner Springs. Ottawa received beefed up scoring from Daryl Jameson and Earle Doman, 16 and 13 points, respectively, while the other top Twister pointmaker, Terry Davis, sat on the bench due to illness. It was the shooting of big Doman that kept the Twisters in front in the opening quarter as he hit on 3 of 6 shots from the field. By the end of the first, a couple of 25-footers by Jameson and a jumper by Steve Queen gave the Reds a 14-6 lead. Three contributions, by Loren Shofner, Jameson and Doug Schultz, moved the visitors to a 23-15 halftime margin. Ball control prevailed in third period as only Jameson and Queen found the rim and Bonner's Vince Doman hit on a pair of frees. Phi] Floyd tried to lead the Bonner quintet out of the wilderness in the fourth but he fail* ed to measure up to standards with his 6 points. Doman flipped up a pair during the stanza but Jerry Turley connected on 4 charity attempts and Jameson 4 of 5 to press the score to a healthy 45-36 victory. Doug Schultz and Steve Queen paced the winners on the boards as Schultz collected 11 caroms and Queen 10. Doman, the usual leader in the rebound department, had 5 grabs. The victory boosts the Twisters record to 7-3, one of the best marks assembled in recent years.
