light from Fort Worth where
Arkansas and Texas Christian
meet in the second of a two-game
series. Arkansas walloped the
winless Horned Frogs last night,
54 to 39, and was expected to
turn the trick again.
The Hogs were paced by

center, who counted up to IN

The lowering Arkansas quintet
was unable to lathom the TCU
defense and failed to tally until
the game was ten minutes old.
Kok,found the range in the last
half and helped build up a lead
which never was threatened.
It was Arkansas’ third consec-

Justice, Terry, Ammons and
Holliday turned in outstanding
games for the defensive phase
and broke up countless "sure”
scoring threats as the victors
dribbled and smashed their way
toward the Mustang's hoop.
At halftime, the host five had
managed a little better than two
for one in Ihe scoring with the
count standing at 2HI but the
last two frames saw them edgi-
just a little more into the advan-

counted for 13.
The two teams were relatively
evenly matched but for the fast,
accurate shooting of Houser und
Rankin, Big Spring forwards
who accounted for 22 and 24

from all angles and with Sweet-
water's fast guards upon them,
the hot pair flipped, dropped and
spiraled countless field goals
