Cyclones Tame Lions; Braves Stifle Sterling OHS Wins, 49-47 In Overtime Game By CONRAD DOWNING Ottawa's Cyclones gained a measure of revenge and hiked their won-lost record to 13-3 as they polished off the state's seventh-ranked team, the Lawrence Lions, in a one overtime affair, 4947, Saturday night on the Lion's hardwoods. In a contest that saw the lead change hands at least 10 times, Coach H. K. Stevens Ottawan's caught fire early in the final quarter and climbed from a 32-37 deficit to a 44-42 lead with seconds to play. The Lions weren't to be handled so easily as they knotted the score, 44-44, on little Mike Browning's goal with 2 seconds showing on the clock. Lawrence kicked off the overtime period with a free throw by Bill Trull, but Harry Morton countered with a pair of charities for a 46-45 Ottawa lead. The Lions fired up a shot, but Ottawa gobbled up the rebound and drew another foul with Roy Dunn sinking 2 for 2 and a 48-45 margin. With seconds remaining, Dunn again drew blood with a charity for a 49-47 tally after substitute Steve Heck hit a jumper to close out the Lions' scoring. Roy Dunn topped Cyclone scorers with 18 points on 6 of 16 shots attempted, and Ronnie Mendel poured in 9 with a 4 of 11 field goal effort.. Harry Morton tossed in 8 and gathered in 8 rebounds, while Jim Lewis and Eddie Davidson connected for 7 points each. Ottawa got off to a cool start as it had difficulty finding the range, and the Lions were it looked as though off on another picnic. The Lions were holding on to a 4-0 lead when the fireworks began with sophomore Mendell flipping up a shot that careened off the edge of the backboard and fell through. In the process, Mendell was fouled and hit the charity to pull the Reds to a 4-3 deficit. The Cyclones progressed until they held a 106 margin late in the frame. Lawrence used the tough jump shot of Ralph Light to pull ahead by the end of the first quarter, 11-10. Second frame action brought a balanced scoring attack out of the Cyclones as Morton, Lewis and Mendell hit for 2 points each while Dunn and Eddie Davidson cracked the net for 3 'points apiece to trail by a mere * * * 2 points, 24-22, at the intermission. Ronnie Mendell collected 4 rebounds while Dunn camptured 5 to lead the Cyclones' early struggle to keep pace with the taller Lions. The difference during the opening two stanzas was at the free throw line as the Lions and the Reds both hit 9 field goals. The home team out- hit the Cyclones, 6 to 4, from the free throw line. Bill Trull started the Lawrence jiggernaut in the third with a bucket, but Ronnie Mendell snatched the ball from Halley Kampschroeder and pumped in a basekt for a 24-26 score. Mendell wasn't through at that point as he countered seconds later with another goal to tie the count, By the end of the quarter, Ottawa trailed, 37-32, with things looking darker by the second. To open the fourth, Dunn scored a field goal for a 37-34 deficit. The Lions failed to hit, and Lewis pumped in a basket for a 37-36 count to incite the Cy clones to rally. With 1:08 left to play, Lewis tied the score at 42 42 and proceeded within the next few seconds to boost the score to 44-42. Mike Browning waited until the very end before he did the damage with a 44-44 bucket to send the game into overtime. The rest is history as the Lions offered a free throw by Bill Trull and a basket by Steve Heck against Morton's 2 free throws and Dunn's trio of charities for a 49-47 Ottawa victory. Lawrence whipped the Cyclones from the field 19-17 but Ottawa scalped the Lions at the free throw line with 15 of 22 while the Cats hit 9 of 15. In shooting percentages, Lawrence hit 19 of 49 for a 38.7 per cent. Ottawa connected on 17 of 50 attempts for a 33.3 percentage. The bigger Lions held a 35-29 edge in the rebound department but outgrab- bed the Cats 3-1 in the overtime period.

The win gives Ottawa a conference record of S-5, same as the records of Bethel College of Newton and College of Emporia, leaving the three in a tie for second place. In the lead is Southwestern College of Winfield, with a record of 10-3. Tomorrow evening the Braves will go to Winfield for a game with the Southwestern Builders. Bethel's Threshers will go to Wichita for a game with Friends University and College of Emporia will go to Sterling for a game with the Warriors. Sterling, in the loss to Ottawa Saturday night, had one handicap that cannot be overlooked. Gene Crawford, a Sterling starter, was wearing a thick bandage on his right arm for a very good reason. A few days ago he underwent an operation made necessary by an infection. It was necessary to take more than 40 stitches in the arm following the operation. Crawford was playing carefully Saturday night because of the arm, and scored 7 points, considerably below his average. Dudley Boeken of Sterling was Twisters Claim Second Victory Over "B" Lions Earle Doman's 16 rebounds and 17 points carried coach J. W. Emerson's high - flying Twisters to their second victory over the Lawrence Lion "B" squad, 48-40, Saturday and gave the Red its 10th win against 3 defeats. Although Doman took scoring honors with 17 points, he got capable support from the trio of Daryl Jameson, 9 points, Steve Queen, 7, and Loren Shofner, 7. Jerry Turley bucketed 4 while Doug Schultz and Terry Davis accounted for a field goal each. With their sixth victory, the Reds shot 14 of 37 from the field while the Lions connected on 16 of 57 attempts. Ottawa out- rebounded the Lion "B" team, 40-35. Free throws played an important part as the Reds hit 20 over the Lion's 9 but lost out in the field goal department 14 to 16. "The Complete Auto Store" Where You'll Find . . . The BEST Service ...

(AP)-Arnold Palmer, leading by a stroke, shares the spotlight with the weather as the Professional Golfers Association debated whether the final round of the $35,000 Phoenix Open could be played today. The weather bureau forecast showers. The wind-up was scheduled Sunday but a storm, striking 10 minutes after the sponsors' $7,000 rain insurance expired, forced the first postponement in the tournament's 28-year history. A fan died of a heart attack after running to the clubhouse to escape the driving rain and hail. Wind uprooted a few trees, toppled a television equipment tower and flattened frame and canvas snackbars around the course. The storm may have worked to the advantage of defending champion Palmer and to the disadvantage of Gary Player. Palmer, with a 13-under-par 203 for the first three rounds, had played two holes in even figures when the action was stopped. Player, starting the day tied with Jack Nicklaus at 204, had completed four holes in 2-under- par. Nicklaus, playing with Palmer, parred the first two holes. Palmer is seeking his third straight Phoenix Open title. Fast Mrvict. Fair settlement of claims. Friendly people who are on your side. You can't buy better protection. Or broader coverage.

Ottawa, which started slowly, is now clicking on all cylinders and will challenge Southwestern's supremacy Tuesday night at Winfield. Also moving up fast is Bethany, which won two convincing triumphs to end the week at 8-5. The Swedes mauled Bethel 78-48 Saturday night for their fourth straight. Bethel stayed in the running by tripping C. of E. 76-74 Tuesday in an overtime. C. of E., which finished last week in first place, lost another crucial game Saturday night when McPherson scored a 66-62 upset at Emporia. One of the week's highlights was the 78-65 Friends victory over Kansas Wesleyan. It ended a 17-game losing streak for the Wichita club. If Southwestern wins twice this week, it will have the inside track on the title. The Builders will still be \% games ahead with three to go. : Tuesday Winfield Kansas Conference S'western 10 3 .769 946 851 C. of E. 95 .643 1114 968 Bethel 9 5 .643 972 987 Ottawa 9 5 .643 1005 904 Bethany 8 5 .615 879 765 Sterling 8 6 .571 969 949 McPherson 7 7 .500 1012 997.

In the second half Sterling pulled up to within 10 points, 55-45, Cowboys Need Win OverKU By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS By continuing an unusual home court jinx at Kansas tonight Oklahoma State will be in good condition for a stretch drive against front-running Colorado in Big Eight basketball. Oklahoma State has beaten Kansas four times in the past five years at Lawrence, while Kansas has countered with four victories at Stillwater in the same span. It's a complete reversal of the usually automatic home court advantage in basketball. The game is a must for Coach Henry Iba's team and could be one of the best in Iba's long rivalry with Kansas, first against F. C. (Phog) Allen, now with Dick Harp. Now in his 29th year at Oklahoma State, Iba has a 2425 won-lost record against Kansas in a series which includes one Olympic playoff game and four NCAA playoffs. He stands 77 with Harp. Colorado stayed on top with a 6-1 record and ran its home court streak to 21 games by defeating Kansas 62-52 Saturday night. Even without injured Ken Charlton, Colorado should beat Oklahoma tonight at Boulder. but never drew closer to the Braves. Those who arrived at Wilson Field House early saw a group of former Braves do a pretty good job in a game against th« Ottawa "B" team. The "B" team won, 79 to 69, but some of the alumni players looked alost as good, at times, as when they were scoring here for the Braves • few years back. The alumni team was made up of Ron Yingling, Bob Bundy, Ed Hampton, Dave Owen, Lou Cop- pec, Nick Gangwich, Sherm Price and Dick Schwarz. Bob Musgrave, also a former OU basketball star, coached the alumni group.
