BASKETBALL DOUBLEHEADER Packers Edge Hibbing but JC Drops Thriller Tb* Austin Packers opened the ew year with a *haky 50-49 de- piston over icrappy Hibbing fn a ton-conference basketball game iere Saturday night, and it was m uphill fight "most of the way. Plainly showing the effects of a wc-»eek layoff, the Packers were .weed to rally from aeficit at halftime, • nine-point 32-23, and fought off a late Hibbing come- tht score with a tip-in at 49-all. Then with time running out, Marineau was fouled attempting to Austin bring the ball up court and his free throw was good for the victory.

Firing at a hot 48 per cent, Hibbing cut loose in the second period for its 32 • 23 halftime spread after trailing 1310 at the quarter. The Packers, playing spotty basketball, managed to slim the lead 43-38 at the three quarter mark and with 3:26 remaining two quick buckets by John Dean moved Austin back in front 48-47. Clayton Reed's free throw gave Austin a two-point spread at 49-47 before Gerald Bloomquist knotted Not Up to Par Not only was the rebounding not up to par, but the Packers, who resorted to a press much of the second half, missed defensive assignments and mechanical errors at times were costly. The Packers, who play Mankato here Friday night, boosted their record to 5-1, while it was the sixth setback in seven starts for Hibbing, which has lost two games by one point and another by two. Fate of S-M League to Rest on Rochester OWATONNA, Minn. — Fate oil What Scheid is aiming at is a the once-powerful Southern Min- six-team S-M League. If Rochester nesota Baseball League rests on the outcome of a special meeting at Rochester tonight and the ability of Emil.Scheid of Austin to convince that city to back two baseball teams this summer. Scheid will meet with officials of the Rochester Red Caps and those interested in baseball in the hopes that Rochester will have a team in the S-M League next sum- Red Caps definitely, ac- comes in, Winona, out of professional baseball this season, is certain to field a team along with Austin, Mason City, Iowa, Fairmont and Albert Lea. If Scheid 's mission fails, the fate of the S-M is in jeopardy. Unless the S-M (Somes up with more than four teams Mason City, according to Ken Hutzel, will drop out. That would mean Austin, Albert Lea and Fairmont will have no place to go. All of this was the outcome of the "Lets Talk Sense" baseball meeting held at Owatonna Sunday afternoon. Rochester dropped the bombshell when it decided to remain in the Century league, bul Scheid insisted on making Rochester part of the S-M plan and added he would see to it that Rochester had a team in the league. There was some talk of the three teams, Austin, Albert Lea and Fairmont, joining the Minnesota River League, but that motion failed to find much favor. Another plan offered was a 10- iteam league, combining the mer. The cording to Roy Polka, will compete in the Century League, but Scheid is convinced there is room for two teams in a city of over 30,000 population and is determined to get things his way.

This is the first meeting between the two schools since Pacelli edged the Ramblers, 44-43, in the finals of the state Catholic tournament last March. Cotter and Pacelli are the only undefeated conference teams. Cotter has won five straight and the Shamrocks four in the battle for the title. The game was originally scheduled last Friday night, but was moved back at the request of Cotter officials. Pacelli, which recently won the Loyola Holiday Invitational crown, hosts Rochester Lourdes Friday night, while Cotter plays St. Felix at Wabasha.

Things brightened considerably in the early minutes of the second half when the Blue Devils, aided by some fancy shooting by Bill Grant and Larry Rensink, went on a scoring spree for a 12- point spread at 50-38. But as the Cardinals found out earlier, nothing is certain in basketball, as that healthy margin was wiped out by a late Hibbing rally, which was strong enough to turn the victory. Engineering the late drive was guard Bill Hoppe, a nifty sharpshooter who seldomed missed around the free throw circle. Hoppe, who led the Cardinal attack with 18 points, collected seven of his nine buckets in the second half. Fall to Keep Lead The Blue Devils managed to hold out until the final 3 minutes and 7 seconds when Ralph Jerulle counted two quick buckets to move Hibbing back in front, 63-62. The lead changed hands twice before Jim Helstrom tied the game at 66-66 and Hoppe added another basket for Hibbing's 68-66 lead with 51 seconds remaining. Helstrom then hit another layup to give Hibbing a 70-66 spread before Jerry Nelson counted on a tip-in to pull the Blue Devils within two points moments before the final gun. Although the Blue Devils gave it all they had, they ran out of gas in the final minutes which enabled the visitors to catch up. Hibbing, which fired at 38 per cent, had three players in double figures. Besides Hoppe, Helstrom finished with 17 and guard Ray Nyholni had 13. Rensink Sets Pace Rensink provided Austin most of its fire-power with 26 points and turned in some nifty floor play. Grant and Jerry Nelson, who provided some good rebounding, each added 14 points. The Blue Devils hit 25 of 71 attempts for 35 per cent and added 18 of 34 free throws. It left Austin with a 3-4 record, while Hibbing, which defeated Rochester JC, 60-58, Friday night, has won six and lost two games.

Drawing major interest will be Northwestern's invasion of Michigan. But the other three contests should afford some indication as to who's who and what's what. These games find Michigan State at Iowa, Purdue at Indiana and Illinois at Wisconsin. Saturday's big surprise took place at Lafayette, Ind., where Michigan uptet Purdue 82-75. Michigan State, Northwestern, Illinois and Minnesota all turned in home court victories. But except for Minnesota's 79-66 trouncing of Wisconsin the victories were not as expected. Michigan State edged Indiana 7977; Illinois scored twice in the last 26 seconds to nip Ohio State 8180, and Northwestern was hard- pressed in its 80-77 victory over Iowa. Illinois and Northwestern can be excused for their close-shave victories. The Illini played without scoring leader Roger Taylor who sat out the game with a charley horse and Northwestern learned shortly after the start of this game that Phil Warren had a hairline bone fracture in his left foot: Northwestern Coach Bill Rohr wiped his brow after the game and said: "We were lucky to get' out alive." Warren, incidentally, will miss Monday night's Michigan encounter and probably will be replaced by sophomore Chuck Brandt whose clutch shooting was a big factor in the triumph over Iowa.

We'll still give some of those Big Ten teams a lot of trouble and surprise some of them." Free throws had a lot to do with opening round games but there was no set pattern. Illinois lost at the free throw line but won the game. Michigan and Northwestern both were outscored from the field but more than made up for it in the charity Jane. Michigan State made two more free throws than Indiana and that proved to be the margin of victory.

The Wolves made it 39-32 at the Peterson SCORE BY PERIODS STOPS By BILL RIEMERMAN De»pite * tremendous last quarter rally, the Pacelli Shamrocks Saturday night dropped a 44-42 game to the De La Salle Islanders from Minneapolis at the Pacelli gym, Indications of a Shamrock defeat came early in the game as Dick Reinhart's tslanderi controlled both boards on rebounds and shot a respectable percentage from out on the floor. The Shamrocks opened the scoring with a Leon Zender free throw for a 1-0 lead, but that was the last time they led in the game. Several times during the first three quartern the Islanders threatened to pull out of reach of Marty Crowe's boys, but their rough play under the boards and a brilliant defensive performance by Larry Scheid alwayi helped close the gap. De La Salle led 12-7 at the end of the first quarter and managed a 10 point lead in the second Lehman Stars as Gophers Rap Badgers MINNEAPOLIS W) — Sore knee and all, Minnesota'i Paul Lehman is off to a sparkling start in a Big Ten basketball career that could become one of the school's most notable. Lehman's 17-point scoring and smooth defensive work Saturday night came against an obviously sub-standard Wisconsin team. But it was impressive enough to suggest that the 6-foot-5 sophomore from Minneapolis De LaSalle is ready to give the Gophers a badly needed lift. Gains Early Lead Minnesota won the conference opened 79-66. Its superiority even wider than that. Tha Gophers frolicked to a 21-4 lead in the first seven minutes and were 20 points in front at one stage in the second half. Unless all the forecasts are wrong, Minnesota will meet eight quarter .with only 30 seconds to go. But an Islander foul while rebounding allowed Bob Schottler to convert a one and one situation to cut the lead to eight points and with only 20 seconds to go the nimble fingered Scheid stole the ball and scored on a drive in which left the Islanders with a 24-18 half time margin. In the third quarter Terry Welsh, the Islander's tallest man and most effective scorer, fouled out to give the Shamrock'* some hope. The third quarter ended at it- 31, but immediately after tht whistle for the final session Jon Andresen converted one of his seven long shots for the Islander* for a 10 point spread. Then Zender and Jack Meyer* each converted a pair of free throws to narrow the Islander lead to six points. Within On* Point " With 2:34 left in the game Beheld hit a one-hander to make th« score 41-37. Twenty-eight second* later Zender hit from his favorite corner spot and was fouled in the process. He swished the fre» throw to put the Shamrocks within one point. The Islanders Andresen thtn hit another one-hander for a 43-40 Islander lead, but Zender retaliated with a bucket at the 48 second mark to again pull the Shamrocks within one point. In an attempt to get the ball the Shamrocks fouled Paul Connelly who converted one for th« 44-42 final spread. With 16 seconds left Scheid thought he saw an alley to ths basket, but the path closed before he got there and Scheid tried a wild shot with his back to th» basket while in the air to clos* the book on the Shamrock's last chance. Zender Tops Scoring Zender led the scoring for both teams as he potted six of 13 shots and 10 of 11 free throws for 23 points. Mark Brosnahan hit 16 sen 14 and Welsh 11 points. Scheid hit five field goals in 1ft attempts and added two frea throws for 12 points.
