A shot from the corner by Mike Cuder, with the score tied 5656, and 3 seconds showing on the clock, climaxed a rugged night of play. Pomona called time and got a desperation shot that went wide as the buzzer sounded. Hie defeat of Pomona handed the county league title to Williamsburg which had completed its league schedule with a 7-1 mark. Pomona has a 62 league count for second, and Lane is third with 5-3 The clutch shot by Kuder was lis 23rd point of the night as he laced the Lion attack: Jim Wy- ie contributed 14 points and a fine all-round game before fouling out with 5:43 yet to play. Lyle Brown and Dennis Baxter tiad 7 and were tough on the boards for the Lions. The Indians had balanced scoring with all 5 starters hitting 10 points or more. Bernie Nelson, Mike Lindsey and Richard Altic each scored 12. Jim Goracke was a tough rebounder all evening, and he and Roger Shoemaker hit 10. The game was close all the way and started out as if to be a high • scoring affair. Pomona, hot from the outside, jumped to a 20-19 first-quarter lead. Goracke hit 8 of his 10 points in this period. Lane continued its terrific pace in the second quarter but the Indians trailed off and found themselves trailing, 37-29, at halftime Lane went ahead to stay with 4:35 remaining 28-26, and outscored the Indians 9-3 in the last 4 minutes of the first half. Pomona came back strong at the start of the second half and just trailed by 4 at the start of the final quarter. Goracke tied it up at 52-52 with 5:30 remaining and the teams were tied at 54 and at 56, all before Kuder's decisive basket. The win gives Lane a 10-8, regular season record. The loss was a heartbreaker for Pomona which closed its regular season with a fine 13-win, 5- loss record. The Indians were Franklin County Tourney champs, but the defeat drops them to second in the league race with a 62 mark. Lane will have its opening district tourney action Tuesday night at Richmond against Welda in the class BB elimination. Pomona will move on to the Class B district at Lebo Tuesday night, taking on a tough Olpe team.

Any one of three teams could be alone at the top after these two big games. Only Colorado's defending champs, in fourth place but only one-half game from first, are barred from taking the lead. The best the Buffs can do is second place. Five men have carried almost all the scoring load for Coach Henry (Iron Duke) Iba at Oklahoma State. In nine conference games, they have scored all but 21 of their team's 526 points. "We've got to score more points to take the pressure off the defense for these last five games," Iba said. "We hope Don Linsenmeyer, Max Shuck and Paul Labrue can give us a lift." The iron five of the Cowboys line up this way — Larry Hawk 18.4, James Cooper 10.7, James King 10.4, Ivan Wiley 10.2 and Gene Johnson 8.1. Johnson missed two games with illness but the other four took up the slack. Linsenmeyer was out nine games with an injury. Oklahoma State's 7-2 Big Eight record matches K-State's. Iowa State is next with 8-3, then Colorado at 7-3. The odds are against Iba's Cowboys at Colorado, but should they get by the Buffs, they would have the best closing schedule and an inside track to Iba's first Big Eight crown. Their only road games would be against Nebraska and Oklahoma, both second division teams. 7 THE OTTAWA HERALD * Friday, February 22, 1963 Vi«w-M«§ur Viewer $1.75 View-Mattel 3-Reel Packets $1.25 The educational and entertain* ing gift for children and adults alike.

(AP)—Manager Harry Craft of the Houston Colts is putting a lot of emphasis on bunting during the spring training sessions.

Russell, the 6-foot-10 All-America center of the University of San Francisco's marvelous Dons in the mid-50s, went back to his old hometown Thursday night. This time he was a knockout, both literally and figuratively. The man with the goatee scored 25 points and grabbed 33 rebounds. He also spent 4 minutes unconscious on the floor after being toppled over on his head after a collision with the San Francisco Warriors' Willie Naulls in the fourth period of Boston's 135-118 victory. Russell finally was revived and was able to stay in the game. The game was one of three in the NBA Thursday night.

Revealing his playing day hab- ts, Tebbetts had this to say: "I was 17 years in the big eagues as a player and I never took a drink. But I went with the gang to the night spots. I know he hours they kept. If they were atigued, it was their own fault Usually it's the player who com- )lains about flying all night who ceeps the latest hours when he tas a chance to rest." Tebbetts, disdaining the use of led checks, said "I'll be popping up here and there in various spots. I'd better not find any of my slayers." Wynn is hoping to find that ela sive victory, No. 300. At 43, he has no contract with the White Sox after a 1962 campaign in which ic posted a 7-15 record and finished out the season with a lifetime record of 299-243. "This is no gag," assured Wynn. 'I wouldn't want to go through this training grind if I didn't think I could make it."
