The rebounding and scoring the first half of Rod Kickbush, Bob Slobe and Doug Meyer actually p'ut the game on ice. This trio was aided no end by. the strict defensive play of Bob Harms, whose floor game was :ops, and Loren Nelson, who was tough on defense and 'finished with 18 points. It was the ball- handling of Harms and Nelson that set up many of Algoha'S buckets during the fray. ;'••'' Meyer ran his two-game scoring total to 61 points by leading the locals with 27 tallies during the finale.

The LuVerne team came back, and the teams Edit the floor at halftime with tljie count tied, 29-29. ;)LuVerne forged a three point edge in the middle of the third stanza, but Burt came whizzing along and held the upper hand, 45-41, at the three-quarter buz- ze'r.
