Muller has led the club In scoring 14 times and has a high single game of 3 5 points (which established a new record this season), while Potthoff s top night was 30 points a year ago. He led the Bears in scoring 11 times in three seasons. Third in scoring this year was Bill Reding, another junior, who canned 277 points for a 13.2 average. Bill now has 4 54 career points in 48 games for a 9.4 average, with a high single game of 23, and he's led the club in scoring seven times. Next in line this season was Bob Smith, senior, with 151 points and a 7.2 average.
