By Vince Coyle sports editor a Cyclone basketball team that has already done a lot of things that people said they could not do is out to prove that the idea of a Mission impossible is just a state of mind. Looking Back at their impressive victories Ever such nationally ranked Powers As Tennessee and Kansas and their habit of winning overtime games As a matter of course the cyclones Are anxiously looking Forward to a Chance to meet league leading Colorado. Coach Glen Anderson s team dropped a narrow one Point decision earlier this year in Boulder and they plan to even things up and then some on saturday afternoon. It Speaks Well for the positive attitude of a team when they Are very much looking Forward to meeting the league leaders rather than approaching the game with a feeling of foreboding. Confident the fact that they Are playing at Home is a very comforting one for the cyclones As they feel we Are just about unbeatable on the armory floor and As Jim Abrahamson said when the last game Missouri went into overtime a coach we can win because we Are Good in the answer will not be Long in being worked out for fourth place Iowa state and first place Colorado clash at 2 10 saturday afternoon in the big eight television game of the week. Just ahead of that contest the Cyclone freshmen will close out their 1969 season meeting powerful Iowa Western Community College at 11 45. Iowa state has a 5-1 armory record against big eight foes this year. But none have been As High in the standings As the invading buffs. Sox Walseth broke hrs club on top from the opening tip off last Jan. 4 and there has been no indication that he has plans for and other spot for the rest of the year. Close race Cliff Meely rated As the Best player in the conference is the leading scorer in the big eight with a 25 per game average. Meely is second to Iowa states Bill Cain in rebounding. Cain is second to Meely in scoring with a 24.4 big 8 average. Meely had 16 in the close 68-67 Buff win Over the cyclones in Boulder. That has been his Low total for the year. So far this season the cyclones have been fighting a tight Battle with Missouri and Oklahoma state for a first division berth. At the moment the fourth spot goes to the cyclones. But another upset is needed in the televised game saturday to keep a tight hold on that first division space. Colorado on the other hand is getting first place pressure from both Kansas and Kansas state and cannot afford a flip saturday. Both Are favored to win league contests saturday night Kansas from Nebraska and the wildcats from Oklahoma state. That Means that the luxury of a loss to the cyclones would further tighten that three Way tangle. At Colorado the real culprit in that one Point loss was Gordon Tope that fastest player in the big eight. Tope hit what was than his career High of 23 Points. His two late free throws sealed the verdict As Aaron Jenkins hit a Field goal at the gun to Cut the Lead to one. Tope has averaged 17 Points per game since that time. The game saturday closes out the Home season for the cyclones. They have won 8, lost 2 on the armory floor. Seniors who will be in final Home Gam action will be Tom Kreamer Des Moines Tom Goodman. Fort Dodge and Tom Pyle Mcpherson Kan. The freshman contest will feature the High scoring guard duo of Gene Mack 26.8 and Pat Melloy 16.6. For Iowa Western the top scorer is Henry Smith Center with 22 per game.
