Bears Maul Navy 29 To 24 To Take 1BC Basketball Lead The League-leading BE- ARS won a sensational bask- etball game from the hard- driving NAVY five by the sco*e of 29 to 24 at the And- rews Fieldhouse this week. Tin's victory gave the BEARS undisputed top position in the IBC hoop league — with second place going to the NAVY. The trio of Martin, Nelson and Corn accounted for 23 of the 29 points garnered by the winners. NAVY center Ward play- ed . an excellent floor game and came through with five doubledeekers and two from the 15 foot mark to take top scoring honors for his quint. Forward Homer of NAVY hit the rim for four field go- als. This pair collected 20 of the club's two dozen total. At half time the NAVY five was ahead by a scant point and it was nip and luck all the way. At this writing, the BEARS are un- defeated and the only loss on the NAVY slate was admin- istered by the aforemention- ed quint.
