The big Algona center, definitely one of the outstanding basketballers in the state, pumped in 45 points in a record-breaking 88-65 win for the Bulldogs over the Wildcats in a North Central Conference game. At least two records went by the boards during the fray. Meyer's 45 point total shattered his previous high of 34, set against Eagle Grove, Jan. 27 this year, and the team total of 88 points broke the old mark of 87 set Feb. 1, 1955 by the Bulldogs during a win over Webster City. The Bulldogs wind up their regular season Friday night when the Iowa Falls Cadets, second place team in the conference, pay a visit io the local gym. Coach Bob King's crew then swings in'lo sectional tournament activity at Titonka Thursday night, Feb. 23, when they meet the St. John's Johnnies from Bancroft. Meyer was more than tremendous against Humboldt. He not only burned up the nets, but also was a slam-bang rebounder and ball handler. He took care of the job of getting the ball up the court and didn't throw the ball away all night. Meyer and his teammate, Rod Kickbush, who sparkled during the game, got Algona off to a quick lead in the opening period. At the end of four minutes of play, Algona had the Wildcats down, 10-2, and the final outcome was quite apparent to the fans. Humboldt came back, and with a balanced attack chopped the margin to 19-13 at the end of the first eight minutes. The early moments of the second round were anxious ones for Algona. Humboldt steamed up, chopped the margin to 19-17, and cut the bulge to two points again a minute later at 23-21, but from that point on Algona was jn command. lat DIAMOND'S SURPLUS!

The locals hit 26 of 32 free tosses while Humboldt garnered 19 of 34. Meyer missed just two of 17. The Bulldogs gradually pulled away, and by halftime held the upper hand, 43-34. Meyer had 25 points during the first 16 minutes. Humboldt scared the daylights out of the locals in the first three minutes of the third stan/.a when a blistering rally closed the gap to 48-44, but once again Meyer and Co. began to pull away to a 64-53 margin at the three-quarter mark. Loren Nelson began to find the range during the fourth period, and with Meyer and Kick- . bush still controlling the boards, (• helped build up the final 23 point bulge. Meyer's superiority was further pointed up by the fact that Humboldt's two centers, Keith Naeve and Mchl, counted just six points between them during the night. Naeve, the regular who normally scores well, got two free throws before fouling out while attempting to stop Meyer's scoring thrusts. Kickbush was second to Meyer in value during the contest. He tossed in 16 points and was an asset all over the floor. Nelson counted 12 points, while Blomker got 22 and Ernst 12 for the losers. Algona's fresh-soph outfit got things headed in the right direction with a 62-53 win in the curtain-raiser. The little Bulldogs trailed much of the way, but came up with a last half rally to take the game. Tom Zittritsch Rot 19 points, Dick Bahr 15 and Jim Cowan 12 for the Bullpups.

Coach Jim Geelan's Knigh'ts will not see action again until they meet St. Joseph's of Bode in the first round of class B tournament action at Titonka next Tuesday nighl at 7 p.m. St. Cecelia's was never in the Holy Family game. The home team raced away to an 18-5 first period bulge and led throughout. By halftime, Holy Family, due to a red-hot second period, built the margin to 46-17, and the pressure on the Knights' offense kept the locals from making a comeback bid. Holy Family outscored the Knights, 27-8, during the last 16 minutes to win with ease. Cecil Schilmoell,er was the Knights only offensive threat in the game. He came up with 12 points. Tom Kinsey was next with four. Bruns got 26 to top the winners.
