CAGE SLATE TONIGHT 'Balanced' Mankato Big Test for Austin Tonight The spotlight will be turned on AusUn tonight where the Packers entertain Mflofcato, the hottest team in the Tifjf Nine Conference. This one might well decide the Big Nin* Conference race, particularly if undefeated Mankato, the surprise team in the title chase, can make it nine in a row. Austin takes the floor at 8 p.m. with a setback against Albert Lea, and it is doubtful that the state defending champions could overhaul the Scarlets from a deficit of two games. Biggest problem for Ove Berven's club will be to cool off Mankato's balanced scoring. The defense will be taxed to the limit and the Packers, who will have * height advantage, must clean the boards to offset Mankato's superior shooting. Both teams will be at full strength for the important tussle. Starting for the Packers will be John Dean and Clayton Reed nt forwards, Jerry Goodwin at cen- Nats, Royals Help Rewrite Record Book By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hie Syracuse Nationals, displaying no signs of tiredness while playing their fifth game in seven nights, and the Cincinnati Royals joined to rewrite the National Basketball Assn. record book Thursday night. The Nationals whipped the Royals 145 ; 138 in three overtimes at Cincinnati for their fourth victory in five games. The combined total of 283 points bettered by one the league mark set by Syracuse and St. Louis Dec. 21, 1957. In that game St. Louis defeated the Nats 146-136. The 146 points is the league record for a winning team ,and the 136 was a circuit mark for a losing team until the Royals tallied 138. In the only other game Thursday night, the Minneapolis Lakers edged the St. Louis Hawks 95-93 at Dallas. The Nationals had to come from behind in the regulation game and in the first two overtimes before outscoring the Royals 11-4 in the third extra period. The Royals took a 119-115 lead ter and Tom Kezar and Mike Marineau at guards. Coach Orv Schwankl has elected to go with his regulars, George Riley and Fred Meyer at forwards, Jim Storm at center and John Peterson and Whitey McArthur at guards. Mankato depends on good ball handling, speed and shooting to get the job done and so far only Jackson, which tumbled 76-74 in the recent Mankato Holiday tournament, has come close to an upset. The Packers have been spotty. They played a good game besting Winona, 70-61, but had to fight for their lives, 50-49, after spotting Hibbing nine points at halftime in their last outing. A preliminary game between the Austin B and Mankato B teams begins at 6:45 p.m. Although the spotlight is centered on Austin, other Big Nine games will attract attention. Win- jona plays at Albert Lea, North- field at Owatotina and Faribault at Red Wing, Rochester plays La Crosse, Wis., Logan in a non-con ference game at home. There is a possibility that three teams wilt share first place following tonight's round. It will come about if Austin defeats Mankato and Red Wing bump* Faribault. That would leave Austin, Mankato and Red Wing on top. Three Southland Conference contests highlight the Austin area program tonight. Elkton, the undefeated leader, risks a 4-0 mark at Adams, Grand Meadow plays at Lyle and LeRoy at Glenville. In other action, St. Ansgar, Iowa, ravels to Rose Creek, Janesville invades Blooming Prairie and Spring Grove will be at Spring Valley.

(Herald photo.) \ GIRLS AND BOYS CAGE TOURNEY FREE THROWS HELP WALDORF Austin JC Jumbles; Rensink Tallies 37 By TOM KOECK FOREST CITY, low* - All-important free throws proved the difference as Waldorf College nipped Austin JC, 82-70, ift « non- conference basketball game here Thursda? night. Hal Cuff's Blue Devils had the edge in field goals, 31 to 30, but fell behind on the free throw line 22 to 16, which handed the lowans the four • point victory. The game was u close ts the final margin, although three times Waldorf managed spreads of eight points only to have the Blue Devils bounce back behind some spectacular outside shooting by guards Larry Rensink and Roger Booher. Although the Blue Devils stumbled, they had the individual star in Rensink, who has provided most of the scoring this season. The clever guard nearly turned the decision single * handed as he potted 37 points for his best all- around performance. Rensink poured in 14 field goals and nine of 12 free throws for the whooping total and the feat was more sensational as he canned most of his shots from outside the free throw circle. It was the scoring of Ransink and Booher, who finished with 22 St. Ansgar and Carpenter Mitchell County Favorites By DAVE OWEN The Mitchell County basketball tourney title may be decided in the opening round Monday when the strongest teams meet.

Four of the starters finished in double figures with forward John Osbrink nearly matching Rensink's pace with 25 points. While the Austin front line of Bill Grant, Gordon Boike and Jerry Nelson couldn't keep pace, Waldorf's Kermit Urbain finished with 18 points, center Harvey Anderson added 14 and Tom Oswald 10.
