The decision snapped a three- game losing streak for the Blue Devils as they take time off for he Christmas holidays. , It also squared accounts, follow- ng a 69-64 victory for the Mankato State team in the first game arlier this month. Sparked by Larry Rensink brilliant play-making and scoring, the Blue Devils kept pace all the way. The two teams tied 34-34 at in- emission and in the second half, ;he Blue Devils rode home the winner on free throws.

By TOM KOECK WINONA, Minn. - Big, rugged Austin rebounded for a 70-61 victory over hot-shooting Winona in a Big Nine Conference thriller here Friday night. This was a big victory for the Packers. Upset last week by Albert Lea, 50-49, and faced with'the possibility of falling flat in the title scramble, the Packers served notice they-fully intend to remain in the thick of the race. By winning, Austin (2-lf moved into a third place tie with idle Reft Wing, while the Hawks (2-2) share fourth place with Albert Lea as the teams reached the break for the Christmas holidays. Marked as a dangerous shooting team, Winona, in that respect, remained untarnished, but they were no match for the Packers on the boards. The steady rebounding, touched off by the brilliant Jerry Boodwin, and a stout defense, which slowed Winona's fast - break to a walk, proved an effective combination in Austin's victory march. The gamble to plug the middle and keep Winona outside paid off, but it created a few uncomfortable moments. While they had trouble breaking loose for easy setups the specta JERRY GOODWIN cular outside shooting by the Hawks kept the pressure on until the fading minutes. Winona fired at 44 per cent with 23 baskets in 52 attempts and they added 15 of 25 free throws. The Packers, meanwhile, poured in 29 buckets in 76 attempts for a respectable 38 per cent, their best shooting this season. They made hard work of it on AUSTIN DAILY SPORTS Adams Veness, f ......

The state Catholic defending champs are riding a 3-0 conference mark and boast a 5-1 record against all comers. The lone setback was against Minneapolis Central in the second game to snap a 12-game victory string. Tonight's game, which begins at 8:15, is the first home test for the Shamrocks since they bumped Owatonna Marian, 40-31, Dec. 3. Since that time they have won road attractions against Minneapolis Blake, Shattuck and St. Felix. Following tonight's game, the Shamrocks participate in the second annual eight-team Holiday Invitational tournament at Mankalo Loyola, starting Dec. 26. Pacelli won the tournament last year and are determined to make a strong showing again. The Shamrocks may have their hands full tonight, as Sacred Heart comes here with a fast, aggressive team that will be dangerous. Sacred Heart has a 2-2 conference record, but the team is stronger than the record indicates. The Wasecans have shown good scoring balance with forward Don Kelly regarded as an excellent sharp-shooter and rebounder. Kelly was Sacred Heart's scoring leader last year and he has been effective in early games. While not overly tall, a pressing defense and fast-break offense, The Blossom B team won the! mark Sacret Heart as hard to preliminary, 49-20, as Underwood nan dle.

(AP)—Minnesota Coach Ozzie Cowles gives Dick Bracher another major trial as a starting guard tonight and goes hunting for new front line strength in the Gophers' basketball game with Southern Methodist. Cowles has committed only two positions definitely—t h e forward spot held by Ron Johnson and one of the guards, where Capt. Whitey Johnson is secure. Otherwise, Bracher, Mario Mil ler and Curt Thalberg are virtually even for the other guard spot. Jerry Butler has yet to prove his right to the center position and Tom Benson, Dick Erickson and Paul. Lehman are the alternates at the second forward. Bracher emerged from two years' obscurity to star last week in the Gophers' victory over Nebraska. Minnesota stands 2-2 going into the game.

Several times the Packers caught the Hawks flatfooted with a fast break and they picked up some easy points on tip-ins by Goodwin, Clayton Reed and John Dean. The ability of the Packers to jounce back against a team that will win its share of Big Nine games pleased coach Ove Berven. "This Is the first time the boys have played good basketball," he said. "We had lots of hustle under the boards and the rebounding saved us." Close Game For the most part it was nip and tuck. Tom Thaldorf, who paced Winona's scoring with 17 points gave the Hawks a one point leac with a free throw, but it failec to hold up as baskets by Reec and Tom Kezar broke the ice for the Packers. Austin moved out 20-14 at the quarter and it was 39-35 at inter mission.

Bob Gain, whose foot injury kept him from practicing last week—although he played Sunday against the Giants—was running well when the Browns wound up practice at League Park Friday. Also looking good was Mike Me- Cormack who was bothered by an ailing knee last week. Both Gain, who has been used as a defensive end, and McCorra- ack, a crack offensive tackle, should be more effective Sunday.

The Giants' sturdy defensive unit is hale and hearty, ready to take another shot, at stopping the fabulous .Mr. Brown. But the offensive unit is crippled. Webster Injured Alex Webster, the club's leading pass catcher and runner in last Sunday's 13-10 victory, didn't even work out Friday. Both knees are damaged, but he probably will be in there as long as he can hobble. Jack Stroud, a regular tackle, didn't play last week and isn't due to start. Al Barry, a regular guard, has an infected toe, but probably will play. Buzz Guy, a handyman guard or tackle, in out with a chipped bone in his ankle. To cap it all Pat Summerall, whose 49-yard field goal beat the Browns last Sunday, has been bothered all week by a leg injury. Chuck Conerly's passing beat the Browns in Cleveland Nov. 2 when he threw for three touchdowns in a 21-17 game. It probably will be Conerly chucking again as the main threat of the Giants' offense. Brown Carries Food Cleveland's bread and butter game all season has been Brown's 23 is is «i strong running and the field goals of Lou Groza. Milt Plum passes only enough to take the pressure off Brown,, although he has a talented receiver in Ray Renfro. Coach Paul Brown has indicated he may do more throwing this week. If the score is tied after regulation time, they will keep going to a sudden death ending. The first team to score a point will win. Because of this factor, the books are quoting no points this week. In man-to-man beeting the Giants are 11-10 favorites. North Dakota and Nationals in Tie GRAND FORKS, N.D.
