The list of unbeaten intramural
basketball teams was pared . to
eight Thursday night as Pioneer
House, undefeated leader of league
IV, met its doom in a two-over
time thriller with Theta Chi.
Ia knocking off the top team
and also increasing their
chances of raining: the seeded
spot of that league in the com
ing playoffs, the Theta Chi
cagsters were inflicted with a
defeat of their own. TC sharp
shooter, Don Mahannah, suf
fered a broken wrist in the
fourth quarter of the contest
and will probably be lost for the
remainder of the year.
It was a low scoring affair,
especially considering the double
overtime, with Piooneer falling to
its first defeat, 20-22.

despite the wrist and sunk the
winning basket with two min

Mahannah's game-winner gave,

every player and spectator was
sure that Pioneer had won. To
start the sudden-death period, the
Pioneers grabbed the tip-off and
began to press. With 30 seconds
gone a Pioneer eager tried for
the game-winning bucket. To all
intents and purposes he succeeded
as the bail entered tne basket
and began to spin. The Pioneer
followers began to cheer and jump
around while the Theta Chi play
ers slowly began to walk from
the floor, but the impossible
happened. The law of gravity
must have reversed itself for in
stead of falling through, the ball
popped up and out of the basket
