Larned piled up an 18- point victory-that night, 62-44. Garden needed a brilliant final period to top the Broncos in their first encounter this year at Russell and won going away 45-37. H took the Buffs considerably less time to clinch the triumph this time- The first eight minutes was a see-saw battle, with neither team leading by more than two points. The count was deadlocked four times f and the lead ' changed hands on ten occasions. Mike Collins dropped in a lay- up ,12 seconds into the second frame to put the Buffs out 16-14 and they were never headed. Garden slowly built the margin up to lead 31-23 at intermission. That eight-point edge was their biggest of the half. The third period was much a repeat of the second. The Buffs padded their bulge to 16 heading into the finaj session. Their largest point spread of the night came with 1:40 remaining in the third stanza at 47-29, an 18- point difference. Russell made a valiant bid to climb back into the contest in the final frame, but could get no closer than 12. Top stars for the winners were seniors Mike Collins and Bill King, who accounted for half of the Buff points and shared the role of guarding talented 6-6 Bronc center Eugene Valentine. They were aided in both efforts when Valentine got into early foul trouble. "The big junior was whistled twice in the opening frame and picked up two more quickly in the second quarter. His usefulness from that point on was greatly impaired. Collins, 6-2 and the team captain, came off the bench for the second week in a row to post a fine performance. He topped at scorers with 16 points, including 14 from the field. The tallest Buff, 6-5 King was right behind with 14. He talliet four baskets and six straight .a' the line. Steve Salter, a 6-1 junior in his second starting role rounded out a balanced Buff attack with 11 markers on five goals and a free shot. Despite his limited service, Valentine was high for Russel with 14, but that figure is well below his season average. He recorded six two-pointers. Also in double figures was 5-11 senior Ken Hoop with 11. He downed five fielders- Both unit* were about average from the floor.
