57-55 narrhw win over \\ ashiugtoit State college. (Oregon now
lias a full game lead over second-place \\ ashinglon.
Compared to Tuesday night's Oregon win. the game was rag
ged. Both teams were off in their shooting, t )regon finishing w ith
a -’It) and \\ SC with a .294 average.
The cool play of Guard Ken Hunt
put the game on ice for Oregon in
the last seconds. Hunt entered the
• umi in . !
The sure-shooting guard poked
8 points through the hoop in those
last nine minutes, 4 of them free
throws. He took a total of 12 points
for the evening.
It was anyone's game until the
final seconds when a helil-ball
under the Duck basket made it
virtually certain that the Cougars
wouldn't be able to reach their
hoop with the tieing points.
WSC Ahead at Half
Half-time score was 26-25 for
WSC. The Cougars put through 4
points in the last minute and a half
to gain the lead.
After the second period got un
der way, the lead changed hands
several times, and with 6 and a half
minutes to go the count was even,
Jim Loscutoff and Hunt took
free throws to make it 48-46, but
WSC came back with two points
by Seymour Stuurmans for the
tenth and final tie of the game.
Mel Krause, high for Oregon
with 14 points, was fouled by Cou
gar Lloyd Schmick and potted a
gift shot; Loscutoff hit took a free
throw off the foul of Pete Mullins
to put Oregon up, 50-48.
Hunt Hits Both
Then cool Ken Hunt went for a
shot, was fouled by Leon Mangis
and calmly pushed through two
more points from the gift line, as
the partisan crot^jJ of 8,058 per
sons screamed its approval.
WSC stayed in the game, how
ever, when Bob Gambold, who play
ed the best game for the Cougars,
made n lay-in and a free throw
from Mel Streeter's foul. That put
it to 52-51, Oregon still on top.
Hunt came back and pushed
through a swlsher from the key to
widen the margin to 8 points. Kile
Roberts returned with a long set
shot to put things back to a ojjg
[joint Oregon lead.

That was with a minute and a
half remaining. Oregon began its
final stall, the Cougars came out,

Loscutoff sneaked away from his
man and under the basket. He took
the pass and very deliberately
pushed through a cripple lay-in.
That put the Ducks three points
on top, 56-53.
WSC Center George Rosser
hooked through the final Cougar
The Cougars really went nfter
the ball at that point, with just
one point over their heads and 50
seconds to go. Krause was fouled
by Mangis and took the ball out
Barclay let Gambold drape him
self over the Duck forward, and
Oregon again took It out. Hunt
was deliberately fouled by Mange-,

Mere tight Oregon ball control
followed, the hold-ball came and
WSC won the jump, but it was too
