Page 2—B—Waco, Texas Sunday, March 17, 1957 ON SECOND THOUGHT By DAVE CAMPBELL Triliunr-HertM Sport* Editor Doc Hayes, a man who had just been hit by a seven-foot steamroller, had pulled his tortured nerves together and now he was holding court for the newsmen amid the gloom of the Southern Methodist dressing room. This was a funeral service, prompted by the need to bury the Mustangs' fractured dreams of a national basketball title.

'Die 6-8 Krebs wasn't the whole show by any means, however, as the SM J Mustangs showed complete recovery from the 73-63 defeat absorbed in an overtime game Friday night and pumped in goals from all corners of tneir home court with reckless abandon to forge into the lead early and stay there.

While Wilt the Stilt wound up the night with 30 points to run his two game total to 63, it was Johnson’s first half rebounding and King's speedy driving and )ong-range sharp shooting that turned a close game into a runaway.
