4 1ST By BILL MTJJJDELL Intramural Sports Columnist 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. The hero of the contest was the same Mahannah who played despite the wrist and sunk the winning basket with two min utes gone in the sudden-death extra stanza. Mahannah's game-winner gave, the contest to Theta Chi after 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 . The Pioneers grabbed the re bound and with the Chi's so far out of position, bad three more tries at that pesky goal, all of which were close but none suc cessfuL The Chi's back in the game, grabbed the rebound and shot down the floor to set up Mahannah's toss. It was close all the way as the intermission scores read 3-3, 10-7 Dierchs Prom Basketball CDaSr Xebnutaaa Bport Featan) The kid who "would never be able to play basketball" is now h aeeressive darling of Iowa State cage fans.

From a "feature angle" it took place in a hotel room fn Kansas City, Dec 27.

In fact he had scored just 5 points for a 1-point average, If he ever was going to be a basketball player, be said to him self, now is the time to start, tonight When Coach Chick Suth erland substituted him against the Tigers he'd become a basketball player, he promised himself. If Diereks makes good en aO his promises as be did on that ne he's going to be a terrific farmer or buuness man or any thing else be takes a mind to be. Facing rugged Bill Stauffer, justi about the best of the centers lrom an all-around point of view,' Diereks slapped in 10 points. doubling his previous output for FIVE games. His play on the boards was the talk of the tourna ment not because it was the greatest seen at Kansas City but because it represented such an improvement over the 1950 play of the Mason City string bean. Against Stanford ia that un believable 101-102 verime contest he was the center and Stange went to a forward. Be counted points la that one and played a whale of a board game again.

The latter item is important since the Cornhusker guard's 319 points have pulled him within hailing distance of Bob Pierce's all-time Husker single season school record of 384. The angular center wrote this into the books last year. Buchanan needs just 65 more markers in NU's final give games to tie that figure.

Buchanan needs 76 to vault past the gangling old projector of j the "holster-heave. ' Obviously, Buchanan is one of the league's most prolific point smiths. It follows that he is one, if not the most difficult, little man in the wheel, to cover. Not only is he swift and tireless but feints quickly enough to create his own openings out of the dribble.
