The Broncos beat Wheaton Christian Friday night but were defeated by Luther South the following night. This leaves them tied with Luther South for third place in the league. The Broncos got off to a slow start against the Wheaton Warriors and were leading by only six points at the half, 44-38. In an earlier game, January 15, when Walther met Wheaton for the first time this season, the Broncos had a 33 point lead at halftime. There was a total of 38 fouls committed-by both teams in the first half of the game. Walther scored 24 out of its 44 points on free throws in that half. The Broncos quickened their pace in the following half and won 84-63. Mike Fischer, a forward for Walther, hit 4 field goals and 10 free throws against Wheaton. Fischer's 18 points led both . squads in high scoring. Rick • Pygman and Al Buchholz led both forces in scoring as they each had 7 baskets and 4 free throws for Walther. The Braves had a total of 25 turnovers which gave the Broncos good opportunities to score but it was definitely a cold night for the Broncos as they made only 28 ^percent of their field goal'at- nn^pjs. Walther is involved in the State Tournament now in the district at Elmwood Park. , HIGHEST INTEREST RATES ON SAVINGS ACCOUNTS We pay the highest interest rates allowed by federal regulations.
