Confident Huskies Invade Igloo Tonight;
Ducks Need Series Sweep for Title Shot
By Bill Gurney
The Oregon basketball team put
the finishing touches on their prep
arations for a “last stand" tonight
against the rampaging Washington
Huskies, as they clicked off what
Coach Bill Borcher termed a “good
workout" Thursday night.
When the Ducks left the Mc
Arthur court maple about 5:00
p.m.. Coach Tippy Dye’s purple
clad highly-favored men from Se
attle took over for a brief shoot
ing drill.
Speed. Not Height
In regard to Borcher's strategy
against Frank Guisness, Bob Hou
bregs and company, the Oregon
mentor plans to open with a re
vamped starting lineup, which in
his words, will “sacrifice height
for speed and ball-handling."
The question mark of Bob Peter
son's fate this weekend was an
swered as Borcher named him to
start at one forward slot, pitted
against six-foot, seven-inch Doug
McClary. Pete’s running mate will
be Sophomore Ken Wegner, nor
mally a guard. Starting Wegner in
place of Mel Streeter or Keith
Farnum is the core of the plan to
gain speed and ball-handling
prowess. The five-foot, eleven-inch
driver will have the tough assign
ment of checking the stylish Guis
ness, although he will give away

Campbells Top McChesney, 27-20;
Sederstrom Thumps Hunter Five
By Bill Brandsness
Class A games predominated
Thursday afternoon’s intramural
playoffs as there were five A di
vision games played and only one
B game. The only class B contest
was between Campbell Club and
McChesney hall. Campbell Club
won on a 27-20 score.
In the A games Minturn turned
back Gamma 30-24 in a close one,
Sederstrom licked Hunter 51 to 34
in one of the highest scoring games
to date; Nestor hall came to life
in the second half to down Cher
ney hall 34 to 25; Barrister Inn
slipped past Yeomen 16-13 in the
last ten seconds of play; and the
Campbell Club A squad trounced
the Legal Eagles 44-15.
In the Mlnturn-Gamma contest,
It looked for awhile as though
Minturn was going to be upset.
The score at the half time was a
narrow 16 to 13 but Minturn fi
nally cracked the Gamma defense
and pulled out the win. Pat O’
Brien pushed through 17 for the
victors while Dick Graham netted
eight for the Gamma five.
Sederstrom launched one of the
highest point splurges seen in In
tramural play as they downed a
determined Hunter hall team 51 to
34. The game started out at a rapid
pace with Sederstrom grabbing an
Sally 23-13 halftime lead. Don Holt
made shots from every angle ns
he dumped 13 buckets for a total
of 26 points. Dick Davenport was
second high for Scderstrom with
12. Walt Badorik paced Hunter
hall with eleven points followed
by Bruce Dingier with eight.
Nestor hall pulled out a 34 to
25 victory from Cherney hall after
a close half that ended 12-12. Nest- j

or sharpened their attack in the
sisiond half and took advantage of
the Cherney hall dribble kings to
find the road to easy victory. The
only real opposition Nestor found
was in the form Of lanky Bob Wag
ner, who dominated both back
boards and handled the ball very
well for a big boy. Wagner is a boy
that Ilorchcr could well line on his
•IV squad.
High point honors for the Nestor
squad went to Dick Kofford with
nine, Jim Tennyson and little
Bobby Takano followed with eight
each. Ken Daugherty hit eight for
the losers.
Barrister Inn downed Yeomen
in a game that went almost to the
gun. With a slim ten seconds left,
both teams had chances to win but
a foul shoot by Kelly from Bar
rister put the game on ice. Joe St.
Martin found time in the remain
ing seconds to grab a wild pass
to put the final score at 16 to 13.
St. Martin was high for Barrister
with five points, while Jim Redman
scored four for the Yeomen.
Campbell Club completely domi

Legal Eagles 41 to 13. Bill West
netted ten and Dick Erickson push
ed through nine for Campbell Club.
Tom Mosgrove was high for the
Legal Eagles with four to his
To finish the day’s action the
Campbell Club B team came on the
floor to follow suit of their big
brothers and beat McChesney 27
to 20. The game started at al
most n. walk as the boys from
the Club held a 8-7 half time lead.
Melvin Westfall led his team to
victory with nine points while
Jones scored seven for the losers.
