TranscriptGallatin's Cagers Nip Tigers;
Avenge loss To National Champ

By Joe Gagie Sports Editor

Tennessee State's No. 1 small college quintet fell to the No. 3 Salukis Tuesday night, on neutral ground, 91-89. The game was played in Carbondale Community High School's new Bowen Gymnasium and attracted an estimated 4, 200 standing-room-only crowd. The move from the SIU Men's Gym was made to accommodate the throng.
Southern's triumph avenged a 95-
93 setback at the hands of the same
Tigers earlier in the season in the
championship game of the Quincy
Holiday Tournament. The win snapped state's 18-game winning streak and extended SIU's to eight.
The last time Coach Harry Gallatin's Salukis tasted defeat was at the hands of Harold Hunter's Tigers. Southern is now 15-3 for the season
and Tennessee sports an 18-2 mark.

Tied 14 Times

The game was tied 14 times with the last time being 84-all with 2:31 remaining in the battle for small college supremacy. Southern regained
the lead when center Tom McGreal fed Charlie Vaughn on a drive-in shot, good for two points. The Salukis extended their margin to four on
two free throws by Ed Spila, 88-84.
State countered with a free throw by Bob Clark and a bucket by Rossie "Shot Gun" Johnson. The score read, 88-87. Southern's favor, with 33 seconds left. SIU's Capt. Don Hepler
