CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY Albert Lea Upsets 'Cold' Austin 50-49 By TOM KOECK ALBERT LEA, Minn. - Christ- inns came parly for Paul Wilke'8 Albert L*a basketball team and the mirprfec gift war a M-49 Big Vine Conference victory over nrch- rlval AiwUn Friday night. And nothing could please Wilke more, a* the triumph had two-fold significance. First, it mapped a three-game losing streak for his Tiger* and, second, It also was the first setback for the Packers since they picked off the state title at Williams Arena last March. A near capacity crowd at new Southwest gym nearly went wild as the buzzer sounded with Albert Lea hanging grimly to the one- point lead. In a final analysis, the Tigers deserved to win. It was an uphill fight, but they outhustlod the Packers in the second half and took away the play after trailing by five points, 28-23, at halftime. Tire Tigers got a big litt when the Packers hit rock - bottom in marksmanship. More frigid than the chilly temperatures outside, Austin fired at a miserable 28 per cent and during the hectic fourth period they missed eight straight free throws after canning 15 of their first 16 attempts. Faribault, Winona and Red Wing Post Wins Mankato remained as the only undefeated team in the Big Nine Conference title race today, following Albert Lea's surprise 50-49 victory over Austin and Faribault's S7-48 verdict over Owatonna. Mankato, which stepped outside Big Nine play for a 65-52 non- conference victory over St. Peter last night, tops the race with a 2-0 record. The victory gave Big Nine teams an 11-4 record against non-conference rivals. Packer Mat Team Edged by Raiders NORTHFIELD, Minn. — Forced to forfeit the 95-pound event, which cost them five points, coach Sky Wilcox's Austin wrestling team lost a 23-22 heart-breaker to Northfield in a Big Nine Conference match here Friday afternoon. The setback was the first for the Packer wrestlers as they hold « non-conference decision over Rochester and battled both Stillwater and Albert Lea to draws. Austin won six of the 12 events, but Northfield had the edge by winning two matches by pins. In addition to the forfeit, Albers pinned Wayne Scott of Austin in 4:38 to win the 133-pound match and Graff toppled Dick Curtin of Austin in 2:57 in the 154-pound test. Austin's Lary Diggins, rugged 175-pounder, won that event by pinning Pasek in 5:03. Other Austin winners were Dick Brimacomb (112); Gene Johnson (127); Tim Baxter (145); Bob Hardy (165) and heavyweight Terry Maus, all by decisions. In the preliminary match, the Austin B team dropped a 39-10 verdict to the Raider reserves.

Things really got rugged when they neglected the important function of rebounding after dominating the boards in the first half. It was a disappointing performance as the Packers are capable of playing better basketball. This time Albert Lea showed the greater desire to win. After trailing all the first half the Tigers twice managed to tie the score in the third period, but failed to go in front ns the Packers sported a 39-35 bulge nt the three- quarter mark.

"They showed more desire," he said. The Packers had good opportunities to score. They had their share of shots within range, but they couldn't snap the lid off the basket. Action Is Rough Not only was the rebounding off, but the Packers committed too many mechanical errors and could not operate efficiently once the action got rough. Several times it threatened to get out of hand. The missed free throws as much as anything can be blamed for the defeat. With more rebounding and better shooting it can be a different story when the teams collide next time.
