THE DAILY COLTYGIAN
In Colgate Win
It was a story, of a good basket
ball team against a poor basket
ball team as the non passers took
it comparatively easy -to trounce
Colgate, 35-21, in Rec Hall Satur
The same type of ball will al
most make State victory No. 3 cer
tain as the Nittany passers meet
Susquehanna on the local floor at
8 p. m. tomorrow.
Even in rolling up their decisive
margin of 14 points over the Red
Raiders, however, the State court
men weren't too impressive in the
matter of shooting. Their plays
worked better than in either of the
two previous games but only
about one out of foufshots—most
ly close ones, at that—connected.
Captain Johnny Barr looked
better than at any other time this
season as he led the scoring with
10 points. Herky Baltimore, soph
omore flash, continued his good
work by netting four goals and a.
single foul for nine points.
Coach John Lawther's proteges
opened up by scoring seven points
before the visitors broke the ice
eight minutes after the start of
play. The first half was nip -and
tuck with the halftime score, 14-
12, in favor of State.
The Nittany passers came back
strong in the second half to com
pletely outplay the Red Raiders
and coasted to an easy victory. All
10 players on the Lion game squad
saw action in the closing minutes.
