By losing to Cotter, undefeated conference leader, the Shamrocks missed a chance to take over first place. From now on it will be an uphill fight and the Shamrocks mist clip the Eagles to remain in the thick of the title race. Spotty defense and cold shooting stymied the Shamrocks. Bob Schottler managed 20 points, but he was the only consistent scorer. The Shamrocks had pleny of chances, but the lid stayed on the basket. While the Shamrocks blew cold, Cotter, a big, rugged team that controlled the boards, poured 'em in from all angles.

"We are not big enough to get many rebounds and any mistakes are costly." Crowe will probably go with the regular unit, although Gary Maschka and Mike Donovan are battling for the center spot. Leon Zender and Schottler will be the forwards, while Larry Scheid and Jack Meyers will be the guards. Lourdes coach Joe Mayer will have his club at full strength. Bennie Clark and Jim Griffin will be at forwards. Jay Pappas at center and John Hanlon and Jerry Fogarty at the guards. Besides the Pacelli-Lourdes test, which begins at 8:15 p.m., Cotter plays a return game against St. Felix at Wabasha Friday night and is favored to pick tip its seventh Ravoux conference win. College Plays Waldorf Quint Hal Cuff's Austin Junior College basketball team goes back to work tonight, meeting Waldorf College at Forest City, Iowa, in a non- conference game. The contest was originally scheduled for Saturday night, but was played good basketball in romping over Winona, 70-61, but In their last start against Hibbing, when they overcame a 10-point deficit to win SO-49, they wer* spotty. Guard Whitey MacAfthur has been the big gun hi Mankato's attack. He is averaging over 17 points per game and is a good shot from outside. Forward George Riley has hit at a 12.8 clip, while center Jim Storm follows at 11.3 Forward Fred Meyer and guard John Peterson, the other members of the starting quint, have also hit the net consistently. While Mankato will give away height, they move the ball well and are fast. If the continue the hot shooting, they will be tough to beat. rw. ... i. u Berven plans to go with his regu- Defense has been stressed as Iar unit.

He has handed out a solid game appears ready to go and he'll handle one of the forward assignments with Clayton Reed. Dean, who was th« itar o! the Hibbing clash, participated in a scrimmage Wednesday. Jerry Goodwin will be at center, and Tom Kezar and Mike Marin«au will be the guards. Ready for reserve duty are Tom Berven, Jim Miller, Lyle Clin* and Don Bulger. Berven is confident his club will be ready. The Packers have the talent and ability to give any rival a tussle. The preliminary game between the Austin B and Mankato B teams goes on at 6:45 p.m. Other Big Nine activity finds Winona at Albert Lea, Northfield at Owatonna and Faribault at Red Wing.

The schedule hasn't been overpowering although Villanova's victims include the likeg of Pern, Duke, Temple and Siena. It's more the ease with which they've whipped through it, averaging a 21-point winning margin. Only Auburn, 9-0 and 20-0 over a two-year span, and St. Bonaventure and Boston University, both 6-0, hav« managed to match Villanova in getting this far without a defeat.
