The Cougars, li o w ever, .
weren’t to be denied. After a
number of melees under botii
baskets, they were ahead, 3G to

man-for-man defense for a
zone. But where Washington
State had knifed through the
Ducks’ man-for-man screen,
they now heaved shots over the
zone, and the Webfoots were
no better off.
With 10 minutes remaining in
the game, WSC had forged ahead,
44 to 33. Oregon was able to
match the invading outfit basket
for-basket for a time but was
unable to make up the deficit to
any noticeable degree.
Cougars Clinch It
With but 4 minutes 30 seconds
remaining, Washington State was
maneuvering out of sight and
reach—53 to 42. Bishop kept the
Cougars out there, 55 to 42, then
Johnny Hooper joined in to make
it 57 to 42. Andrews powered into
the key and scored, but Hooper
roared back—59 to 44. A few
trips up and down the boards,
and WSC was gone, 61 to 45.
Both teams meet again in the
Igloo tonight to finish one half
of the 4-game series.

It was a confident, but certain
ly not a cocky bunch of Cougars
that pinned down the Ducks, 61
to 45, at the Igloo last night.
These youngsters of Jack Friel’s
knew their way around the floor
and also knew how to “get rid”
of that sphere through the hoop.
They whipped the ball around
with lightning-like dispatch,
typically Washington State
, fashion, and their fast-breaking
always-moving attack caused
no end of trouble for the Web
foots. Yes, despite their inex
perienced sophomore - studde#-^
squad, the Cougars certainly
did 'not lack in confidence or
Considered pretty much of a
dark horse earlier in the season,
last night’s performance can be
said to classify them right up
there with the title contenders.
Oregon couldn’t seem to stem
the tide of the Cougar
baskets ^ which flooded in
from all sides. Whenever the
Webfoots would shove in a cou
ple, the Staters would counter
with a flock of baskets. They
just couldn’t seem to miss . . .
25 field goals in all.
Porky Andrews, Oregon’s Can
adian captain, was the shining
light of the Webfoot offensive,
with 17 gold-studded points.
Tossed in no less than seven field
baskets all of which were diffi
cult. Perhaps his outstanding
ones were the long howitzer
which he flung in from mid-floor
half-way through the first half,
bringing the Ducks up within
one point of the Cougars, 14 to
13, and the fancy bit of dribbling
in which he eluded three State
defenders to wriggle under the
basket for a lay-in shot during,
the closing minutes of the game.
Ducks “Dang Tough”
Captain Kirk Gebert, smooth
operating back-court man, said
after the game down in the Cou
gar dressing room, that the
Ducks were “dang tough,” and

Oregon was said to be the
best team that the Cougars
have run up against this year,

beginning, the Cougar veteran
Praise for the brilliant playing
of Oregon’s captain, Porky An

Washington State got off to a
good start, evidentally visualiz

must make in defense of their
northern division title.
