Ricks, Weber to Clash Friday REXBURG, Ida., Jan. 24 (AP) Ricks college Vikings are aiming for a two-game sweep in their basketball series with Weber Junior college Friday and Saturday. If the Vikings can dump the Wildcats, they'll be well on their way to the northern division title in the Intermountain Collegiate conference. However, Weber also is looking for the title and is the only real threat to Ricks' hopes for a cham�pionship. The Vikings are unde�feated in four conference games. Weber has won the same number. Second Contest Scheduled on Tiger Court Tonight; Foul Pitches Decide Issue By Spencer L. Richards Hicks college of Rexburg, Idaho, defeated the Weber college Wildcats last night at Ogden high school gymnasium by a 74-67 score. The seven-point victory placed the Idaho outfit on the top rung of the ladder in the northern division of the Junior loop. Tonight at eight p. m., again at Ogden high, the Cats will have a chance to even it up. The two clubs were tied for first place honors previous to last night's encounter. One of the largest crowds in We�ber college basketball history saw the action-packed contest last night. There were few vacant seats in the spacious O. H. S. gymnasium. Quick buckets by Don Dinsdale and Larry Woods gave the locals a four-point lead as activities began. The Cats increased the lead to 6-1 before the visitors could get going. However, the Idahoans tied it up at 10 to 10 when the game was only seven minutes old. With the first half at the midway point the locals were still leading at 22 to 21, but from then on until the half the vis�itors pulled steadily ahead until at the rest period they held a six- point advantage at 43 to 37. The Vikings pulled still farther ahead until midway in the second half when a Wildcat rally, led by Dinsdale, Bob Harbertson and Bill Hull pulled the Cats to within 10 points at 61 to 71. Scoring contin�ued on even terms, until with three minutes to go Bill Hull, who had played his usual fine game, wrenched his back on a scoring at�tempt and had to leave the game. However, Bob Harbertson, Jim Slayden and Don Dinsdale kept scoring to reduce the lead to seven points before time ran out. Foul Line Victory The Idahoans won the game from the foul line, when they dunked 24 of 30 free throw attempts. The Wildcats scored 32 field goals, com�pared to only 25 for the Vikings, but connected with only three of six from the free-throw line. The locals, on nearly every opportunity, elected to take the ball out of bounds rather than attempt foul pitches, and failed to click on near�ly every occasion. Had they at�tempted their free throws and con�nected with only half of them they would have come out on the long side of the scoring. Glen Dallinga for Idaho was the point getter of the evening. Hitting from near impossible angles and set shots he dunked 10 buckets and made five of six from the charity line for a total of 25. Bob Haws was also hot for the visitors with 17. i Bill Hull, Weber center, made 11 baskets on tip-ins and set shots for a total of 22, but attempted only one free toss, which he missed. Har�bertson, somewhat off on his usual scoring ability, made seven goals and two for two on free throws for 16. Don Dinsdale, besides playing a fine floor game, made 13 counfers. With the division title probably at stake tonight, fans are expecting one of the top games of the year. Coach Reed Knute Swenson'g charges won decisively over the Vi�kings recently at Rexburg. but dropped the second contest there, also by a decisive margin. The two hard-rustling crews have a good chance to split their Utah series here. Both clubs have stood out in league competition to date. Returns Tonight Although it was believed that Hull had been seriously hurt when he wrenched his lack last evening, it was determined that his injuries were only minor and that he would be able to play in this evening's game.
