Records Show Area DYO BB Players Rank High Several teams from this area have figured prominently in the playing of the Sioux City Diocesan Basketball Tournament each year since it was first held in 1930. A comprehensive rundown on the history of the meet was produced for the Diocese this year - and the following information and statistics were included. Bancroft St. John's has played in the meet finals no less than six times - and the Johnnies grabbed the title during .their first four attempts, in 1940,194344-45. They were runnerS-up in 1950 and 1959. The Johnnies downed St. Cecelia's, of Algona, 26-23, to claim the J 1945" title and St. Cecelia's als'3'jost in the finals in 1955 tcMJeWars Gehlen, 67-45, in its only.ajher ^ appearance in the finale..' $ar- riga'n won the title in l'962 rt and placed second the preceding two years - and played for the crown this past Sunday. Whittemore Presentation lost in the finals of the meet in 1954, the only time the team advanced to the last round. Garrigan has been involved in two of the highest scoring final round games in the meet's history, losing, 77-66 (143 pt. total) to Carroll Kuemper in 1961 and to the same team, 62-61 (123 pts.) a year ear- , lier, while St. John's fell to Pocahontas Catholic, 74-59(133 pts.) in the second highest scoring game in 1959. The John-? nies also had the seventh highest single team total in history in 1963 when they scored 84 points on the Bears. The 1964 St. Edmond win over Garrigan, 92-66 (158 pts.)ranks second by one point as the highest total of points registered by two teams in any tournament game. A St. John's win over Pr^'- sentation, 55-13, in 1951 ranks ninth in the widest margin of victory category - but when St. Cecelia's lost to Danbury, 61-6, in 1930, the 55-point margin'' put that game in second. Onjy one team has scored more points in a losing cause than the Johnnies when they dropped an 8372 decision to Pocahontas Catholic in 1964. Ed Rahe of the 1959 Johnnies finds himself in elite company. He is fourth in the all- time scoring list. He hit 85 points in three outings, posting a 28.3 average that year. Merle Loss, 1955 St. Cecelia's stalwart, is 19th with 80 pts. in four games, 20 pt. ave.; then come Mike Cink, 1962 Garrigan, 21st, 58 pts., 19.3 ave.; John Nemmers, 1963 St. John's, 23rd, 57 and 19; and Oscar Froehlich, 1961 Garrigan, 60 and 15, in 34th position. Rahe also stands'sixth in : final game performances with his 27 points in 1959, while Lyle Loebach, 1961 Garrigan, is 18th with a 22-point performance. Rahe is fifth in scoring in any single.tourney game with a 37- point fray, while Loss is eighth with a 33-point night. Rahe is also 26th in the same category, tied with Froehlich at 27 points. Rahe (who did it twice), Don Smith, 1962 St. John's, and Lee Froehlich, 1964 Garrigan, are tied in tenth place in the most field goals, any tournament game division with 12. The most free throws in one game category includes Rahe, tied for second with 13; McGuire, 1954 St. Joe, and CecilSchilmoeller, 1956 Did Harlem Globetrotters 'Come Alive' Here In 1926? Swea City Is 100-70 Victor Over Sentral Swea City hit the century mark on its home court, Tuesday night, turning in a 100 to 70 win over the Sentral high cagers in a State Line Conference game. Elliott led the Trojan scoring and Geitzenauer paced the losers. Lakota and Armstrong also continued their winning ways, Tuesday night, with victories, , in a neck and neck race for i first place. Ledyard downed Titonka, 72 to 63, in another conference contest. The average Japanese worker earns $90.94 a month. Did the Harlem Globetrotters get their first real start in Algona - or Swea City - about 39 years ago ? That would be, let's see, along about 1926. If they did, there must be some oldtime sports fans around who will remember the game. In the Tuesday Register, a copyrighted, syndicated sports column by Jim Murray, was devoted entirely to the Harlem Globetrotters, and in the story the venerable Abe Saperstein, owner and manager of the famed club, relates that until about 39 years ago the Globetrotters played straight basketball. "Then he noticed the customers falling asleep. He thinks it was Algona, Iowa. But it may have been Swea City. Let's clown it up, Saperstein suggested to his team, which objected strenuously, saying they were not a minstrel show. Saperstein then said the crowd was so quiet the only sound in the place was the stomachs of the team growling." They clowned it up, the crowd awoke, and they have been awaie ever since when the Trotters play, including all over Europe as well as the U. S. A. Now, can someone tell us if they remember that game 39 years ago when the Globetrotters developed the technique that has made them world famous ? And it is only coincidental that next Saturday, March 13, the Globetrotters will appear with two competing teams in the Garrigan high gym, under sponsorship of the Rotary club. They will put on six acts during the evening, including one by Peg Leg Bates, the one-legged basketball player. Better jot down the date I Two LuVerne Cagers Are Leading Loop Scoring Eight area basketball players, three girls and five boys, are among the top scorers in the North Star Conference - with Lu Verne players topping both divisions.
