TranscriptCagers Brush Michigan Squads Aside, Keep Hope Alive In IIAC Title Race

By Ron Jacober
Sports Editor

Paced by the brilliant ball handling of Dick Ruggles and a well balanced scoring attack, Harry Gallatin's cager pounded the two Michigan representatives in the IIAC last weekend, 106- 53 and 94-67.
The victories however, failed to help the Salukis sneak back into a first place tie in the IIAC as Illinois Normal whipped Western, who lost to Northern Thursday night, 94-85, to maintain the league-lead with an 8-2 mark. SIU and Western are now 8-3.
In Friday's ragged tilt the Salukis didn't impress much of anyone, but they still managed to score over 100 points for the fourth straight home game.
The Salukis jumped off to a 19-6 lead despite the fact that they were very cold. The dogs extended the margin to 4 1-26 at halftime, despite hitting a cool.304 from the field.
Hitting and passing with more precision, SIU popped in 45 points in the first 14 minutes oF the second half to take an 86-36 lead. With Bryson, Vaughn Hepler, Ruggles and Gualdoni on the bench, the Southern reserves keep pounding away at the hapless Hurons.
Harold Bado finally hit the free throw that gave Southern the 100 points again with a minute and a half left, Gallatin used 13 men and all of them broke into the scoring column.
Charlie Vaughn, hitting 8 for 14 the second half, ripped the cords for 27 markets. Frank Manley led the Hurons with 15 points. Eastern hit a miserable
.233 from the field.
