2 THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, February 23, 1M3 Hustle Like Champions They Are . J. * By CONRAD DOWNING Coach H. K. Stevens was a mighty happy fellow, last night after his Ottawa Cyclones clinched the Eastern Kansas League title with a 26-point second quarter splurge to vanquish the second- place Argentine Mustangs, 59-43, on the Red's home hardwoods. "These boys are the true league champions," complimented Stev- ens in the dressing room. "They beat the EKL favorites three times badly. In the East Kansas League tournament, they whipped the Mustangs 70-57, and then outscored them 58-40 and 56-45 in the other league outings. The boys played well, a real team victory tonight." Not only did the Reds waltz off with a smashing 36-13 halftime margin, they stretched the lead to 29 points at one time in the third period. Harry Morton, Ronnie Mendell, Roy Dunn and Jim Lewis finished in the double figures for the Cyclones as Morton topped the scoring with 15 points, followed by Mendell's 14. Dunn and Lewis hit 11 each while Eddie Davidson scored 8, 4 in the opening frame. HIS FOR AWHILE — Argentine's Bob Bray grabs rebound while Ottawa's Harold Morton (No. 29) puts on pressure without quite fouling. An instant after picture was made, Ottawa's Ronnie Mendell came out of nowhere and whisked ball right out of Bray's hands. No. 41 is Argentine's Drue Jennings. Ottawa won, game and EKL title. (Herald Photo) Twisters Tumble To Junior Ponies Argentine's junior varsity last night started off with what looked like a stall game, but it paid off in a victory over Ottawa as each and every shot counted for 48-42 revenge of an earlier defeat. The Ottawa Twisters found the homecourt didn't help as much as they would have liked it to, but a scoring lapse in the second half hurt the Reds in their bid to recover from last week's defrosting by Turner. With a hot 19 of 36 from the field, the junior Horses belted the Twisters with slight point advantages son returned to form with a 12- point effort while Jerry Turley hit 9 and Doug Schultz checked in with 13. Earle Doman hit 5 and Loren Shofner 2. Steve Queen hit a free throw. Ottawa held an 8-7 margin at the end of the first quarter but jumped off to a fine second stanza start as Schultz sent two shots but plenty of hustle. Daryl Jame- whistling through the nets for a 12-7 lead. Turley bounced back at the 6:15 mark to score for a 14-7 tally but a flurry of counters by John Bellmyer brought the count back to 14-11 midway in the bout. Watson Hits 25 In OU Victory WICHITA-The Ottawa University Braves wound up their 1962-63 basketball season last night with a 75-66 Kansas Conference win over the Friends University Falcons of Wichita. Tom Watson was the top scorer for the Braves and for the game, with a total of 25 points. Tom Kinder hit 18 points for the Braves, Duane Bissitt, 10, Deun Erwin 8, Jerry Harshuw and Bill Jones 5 each, and John Krcbbs 4. For Friends, Hay was high with 23, and Snyder hit 15 and Minton 10. The Ottawa win leaves the Braves with a final conference standing of 10 wins and eight losses and leaves Friends with a conference record of 1-16, The Braves finished in a tie with Me- Pherson for sixth place.

The Colts picked up a hot hand in the third with a 16-point effort to move ahead. Ottawa payed tag for several minutes before Bellmyer broke it open, followed by Ray Mantooth's bucket and a 3024 margin. By the end of the per iod, the Colts led 36-30. Trailing most of the way in the final stanza, Ottawa rallied with Jameson showing the light with a 5-point effort to pull within 3 at 42-39. Davis hit a charity for Argentine but Earle Doman put the Reds back in contention with 1:26 left to play with a free shot and a 40-43 count. The final tally looked as if the Twisters died in the final minute as they dropped their fifth in 15 starts. Here's the scoring: OTTAWA - 42: Schultz 532; Jameson 522; Turley 252; Doman 135; Shcfner 104; Queen 010. Totals 14 14 15.

The Dennis Auto Company of Ottawa, Kansas, announces that it will hold a special "Burch Day" on Friday, March 1, 1963. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will be held RAIN OR SHINE, according to Mr. Arthur Dennis of the Ottawa firm. "BURCH DAY" in Ottawa will be in cooperation with the BURCH PLOW WORKS, INC., of EVANS- V1LLE, INDIANA, specialists in the manufacture of farm planting and tillage tools. Established in 1867, the Burch Company is now in its 86th consecutive year in business. Everyone interested in agriculture should make a special ef- fort to attend "BURCH DAY" in Ottawa; the farmers in this area will see many things of great interest to them. Preparations for the event are in charge of Mr. Arthur Dennis. Mr. Dennis, owner of Dennis Auto Co., is also the BURCH factory representative for the State of Kansas and Western Missouri. He and other BURCH factory officials will be present to discuss many agricultural improvements with everyone interested in farming. See our ad in Monday's Herald regarding "BURCH DAY" in Ottawa, Friday, March 1. Adv.! The Cyclones increased their league leading mark to 8-1. Argentine now holds a 6-3 league record and 8-9 overall. Steven's Reds are 14-4 in their first season under the East Kansas League banner, and they fared quite well with the EKL tournament crown and the league title. Neither (cam started at a hot pace, but it was almost five minutes before Argentine could even find the range. Ottawa held a commanding 7-0 lead late in the frame when Drue Jennings broke out with a 3-point play for the Ponies. By the end of the period, Ottawa held a 10-5 advantage. Defense against the league leader always poses the greatest problem, and, last night, Argentine forgot for one quarter exactly how tough the job can be. Lewis started the 26-point second period with 4 points and turned the production over to Morton who elbowed Ottawa into an 18-9 lead. Mendell, who started the game 1- point shy of setting a new sophomore scoring mark at Ottawa high, hit a jump shot to break Bob Lewis' old record of 185 points in a single season for a sophomore. Mendell proceeded to steal the ball and hit a setup and return seconds later on a Davidson feed to score another quick layup to boost the margin to 32-11. Jim Doyle broke the Cyclone scoring fantasy with a fielder, but Mendell scooped up a loose ball and connected for his tenth point in the second quarter. At the halftime, Ottawa had 12 for 22 in field goal shooting . Third quarter action featured some sharp scoring as the Reds hit 8 of 17 goals with Dunn hitting 6 points and getting good support from Morton and Lewis for a 53-25 Ottawa advantage at the end. In the final stanza, Argentine came to life for a rally with Bob Tucker putting some starch in the attack with a 5-point outburst for a 57-33 deficit. Morton added Ottawa's last point to make it 59-33. Drue Jennings sparked a 4- point break-away with help from Mike Desure's 3-point play. Jim Doyle added some fancy passing to confuse the issue, but the Ottawa reserves held the Horses in check. The Cyclones hit 26 of 63 shots for a 41 per cent total, while Argentine connected on 17 of 56 attempts for a 30 per cent average. Morton and Lewis controlled the boards for the Reds with 9 each while Dunn gathered in 8 rebounds. Doyle led the Mustangs with 13 grabs, followed by Jennings with 9. The Horses were without the service of their top scorer, Richard Mabion, who has been hampered by a leg injury several weeks ago Mendell ................. 700 D «nn ...................... .' 5 i „ £ ew }s ........................ 4 3 2 Davidson ................... 4 o o Schultz ..................... \ o 0 1 Winchester .............. o 0 0 Park .......................
