There isn't anyone who can touch them if they play like that. They had the size on us and the defense..." This observation was backed by the Scarlet's assistant Packers "looked better than when they won the state tournament." Such fine praise can mean only one thing. The pressure is on the Packers to continue that brand of play against future opponents. It won't be easy as each team they face will be gunning for an upset. Teams like nothing better than knock off a top dog, and what better way to make the headlines than beat Austin ...? It did prove Austin is capable of playing good basket ball against good opposition. They have the horses to go a long ways ... With normal progress the rest of the way another trip to the state tournament is not out of sight. Bu it means a lot of hard, determined work. No one is going to give the Packers a free trip... Burdie After 3rd Scoring Title FROM THE LOOKS OF ',-HINGS, AUSTIN'S MOST FAMOUS basketballer, Burdie Haldorson, is bent on achieving a third Nation al Industrial Basketball League scoring title as a member of the Bartlesville Oilers, . . The 6-9 pivot, who started with the 195G U.S. Olympic team in Australia has scored 120 points in five games for a flat 24.0 per-game average. . . Although a couple of percentage points shy of his record-breaking 26.7 average of last year, Haldorson is running nearly two percentage points ahead of Dick Boushka ol the Wichita Vickers. Holder of a-three-year NIBL career average of 22.3, the former Austin prep star, who played his college basketball at Colorado, led the league in scoring a year ago with 801 points. During the 1955-56 season he posted 515 points, which at that time was another record. f Television fans will get a chance to rate Ozzie Cowles' Minnesota basketball team Saturday afternoon when they meet Purdue at Williams Arena. Game time is 3:30 p.m. over CBS (Ch. 3). It is the first of three TV performances for the Gophers against Big Ten foes as they play before the cameras at Ohio State, Jan. 31, and at Wiscon sin, Feb. 21. . . Catholic Test on Neutral Floor CORNER CHATTER — Pan! Wllke, who is still beaming over Albert Lea's 50-49 Austin victory, comments that his Tigers arc on schedule as -far as improvement is concerned. . . In defeating Winona the other night, Wilkc credited a fine defensive showing and balanced scoring as reasons for Albert Lea's success. . . The Faribault High School gym will be the scene of the Region Five Catholic basketball tournament this year. The dates will be Saturday and Sunday nights, Feb. 21 nnd 22. . . Austin Pacelli, the defending champ; Faribault Bethlehem, Rochester Lourdes nnd Owatonna Marian provide the competition. . . This is the second year that the event, which leads to a State Catholic tournament berth, will be played on a neutral floor. The idea was originated and carried ou( by Pacelli coach Marty Crowe a year ago when he transferred the tournament from the Sham- ' rock gym to the Austin floor. Up until that time, the tournament was held in the gym of one of the competing schools. . . Incidently, the date of the Pacelli-Rochcster Lourdes return game has been changed. It will be played at Mayo Civic Auditor- iara on Wednesday, Jan. 28, instead of Feb. 20, (he original date. . . Mankato Loyola at home. While Pacelli has a 5-1 conference mark, Marian takes the floor at 8 p.m with a 2-4 record.

This was the curbstone opinion of some of the interested parties after the Supreme Court upheld Monday a district judge's antimonopoly decree. The action effectively put the IBC of New York and Chicago out of business. There was no immediate answer however, to the question of who will arrange the televised matches the IBC has been handling for years. Another uncertainty was the status of IBC promotions already booked for future dates. The court ruling also directed James D. Norris, a founder and former president of the IBC, and Arthur M.

But the Gophers brought back plenty of consolation from Bloom ington today, nnd it had nothing to do with "moral" victories. Minnesota learned for the first time that it is capable of playing tough, sound basketball on an enemy court. * It also cheered the long-awaited return to form of sniper Tom Benson, whose bullseye shooting nearly fashioned an upset for a team that was an 11-point underdog. And it found out that sophomore Jerry Butler can score under pressure and in fast company. But Indiana still had enough to pull it out in the late minutes after trailing by seven points a one time. The man who did it was the 6-11 sophomore Walt Bellamy, who hit 17 points and snared 20 of Indi ana's 50 rebounds. With Benson and Butler swishing baskets over the Indiana zone Minnesota stayed with the fast stepping Hoosiers in the first half despie Indiana's superior board strength. Coach Ozzie Cowles yanked his 'irst team late in the half to give it a few minutes rest and had the seconds stall, to the displeasure of ic Indiana partisans. Trailing 31-28 at halftime, Minnesota moved ahead quickly on the coring of Benson and Ron Johnon but faded in th efinnl eight ninutes in the face of the scoring I Bellamy, Frank Radovich and 5ary Long, I Benson finished with 23 points, j Butler had 10 and Ron Johnson 14.

Pettit Adds to Point Lead NEW YORK (AP) - Bob Pettit of the St. Louis Hawks scored 146! points in five games last week to By BEN OI-AN unpublicized team Denton, Tex. had the basketball world taking notice today follow ing a stirring performance that resulted in a relatively poor night for Oscar Robertson nnd a near upset of the Cincinnati Bearcats, As it turned out, little North Texas State lost to sixth-ranked Cincinnati 64-56 in overtime. But not before the Bearcats had come within inches, of'defeat. .With only six seconds remaining and the score deadlocked 19 all in regulation time, a shot by Rod Byrd of North Texas State hit the rim and bounced away. Robertson was held to 19 points Rules Group May Favor Field Goals LOS ANGELES (AP) — Field- goal kicking, more popular last fall, may become even more so this year. It all depends on what the National Collegiate Athletic Assn.'s Rules Committee does during the next two days. The committee has before it in closed-door sessions several proposals to encourage field-goal attempts. They would move the goal posts to the goal line, lower the crossbar, or spread the posts farther apart. The net result of each of the plans would be to give the kicker a better target. NCAA teams kicked a record 108 field goals in 1958, Committee Chairman H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler said. The previous record was 84 goals kicked in 1940. The goal posts at present are 10 yards behind the goal line. They were moved there 28 years ago 'or safety reasons. Another controversial issue fac- ng the committee is the Coaches Advisory Committee's proposal for •estoration of the free-substitution ule. Crisler said the coaches' com- nittee wants to return to un- imited use of players, while another faction wants relaxing of the present rule without return to platoon football. None of the rules committee's decisions will be disclosed until the meeting ends Wednesday afternoon, Crisler said. Olmedo Feels Fine cement his hold on first place in!

Sophomore John TidwelPs record-breaking scoring spree led Michigan to an 84-74 triumph over hapless Wisconsin; Illinois romped past Iowa 103-97, and Indiana squeezed out a 63-59 triumph over Minnesota. All three -leaders have 3-1 records. Tidwell, former Herrin, 111., prep star, broke the individual Michigan scoring record and the Wisconsin fieldhouse record with 37 points. Ron Kramer held the Wolverine mark of 34 and Don Rehfeldt and Bob Litzow of Wisconsin shared the fieldhouse record, also 34. Tidwell collected 25 of his points in helping Michigan gain its third victory in four games. The loss was winless Wisconsin's fourth. Illinois and Indiana scored on their home courts. The Illini, taking no chances after their 97-96 home loss to Michigan State Saturday, rambled to a 57-41 halftime lead and were in front between 10-22 points through much of the second half. Roger Taylor and Mannie Jackson topped Illinois scores with 24 points each. Iowa had five men in double figures led by Dave Gunther who dumped in 19 points. Both teams had excellent shooting percentages. Illinois finished with .478 and Iowa .430. The loss was Iowa's second in three games. Indiana was forced to junk its zone defense in favor of a man-to- man setup to subdue Minnesota's well-rested Gophers. But it was Indiana's accuracy at the free throw line which finally paid off. Three conference games are scheduled Saturday with Purdue at Minnesota in a regionally televised matinee and Iowa at Indiana and Northwestern at Ohio State in night games.
