Matt Hesting, head coach of the Griz- zlies, said "we had a very low-key workmanship performance in this game. Not very flashy or energetic in anything we did butwe stayed steady in playing a sound team game." The Grizzlies Started well against Osborne, holding a 13-10 lead against the number two seeded Bulldogs. The Grizzlies slowed down in the second quarter, trailing Osborne by one point, 20- 19, at the half. Osborne returned to the court in the third quarter and utilized a press de- fense which unsettled the Grizzlies leading to numerous turnovers. The Bulldogs capitalized on the miscues and converted ~them to points. The stunned grizzlies watched the bulldogs : explode for a.10-0 run to begin the third quarter arid leave the Grizzlies facing an 11 point deficit before they could scor.e a point.

Even though it did cool down the first part of February, we still have experienced warmer averages than usual. So you may be wondering if these ,'warmer than average" tem- peratures are an area of concern for the wheat crop. How warm have soil temperatures been? "The physiology of wheat ver- nalization and cold hardiness suggests that soil temperatures at the crown level rather than air temperatures should be the primary driver leading to in- creased or decreased cold hardiness during the winter," explained. Romulo Lollato, K-State Research and Exten- sion wheat and forage specialist. "Soil temperatures will be influenced by the amount of residue on the soil surface, as well as soil moisture.

Moist soils require more energy to cause any change in temperature than dry soils; thus, any increase or de- crease in temperature occurs more slowly than in dry soils. As a result, moist soils with heavy residue will heat more slowly than dry bare soils." Soil temperatures at the two inch depth averaged about 37 degrees F. in the Post Rock District at the stations in Jewell, Mitchell and Osborne coun- ties.
