Kueck Tallies 11 Kucck, -who has seen very little duty previously, pitched in with Bob Slobe to take' care of most of the rebounding for the Bulldogs during the fray, and accounted for 11 points, including nine free throws. Zittritsch, who has seen quite a bjt of action and has done some scoring this year, added spark to the Algona team with his alertness. He and Jim Cowan made UD a fine front-line defense against the winners.
