Cubs and Indians Are Semi Threats BY KURT FBETJDENHAI- United Press Sporta Writer Indianapolis -- (UP) -- Madison and Anderson stand out as top! challengers from the Indianapolis: semi-final district to make the four-' team finals of this year's Indiana high school basketball tourney. These two powerhouses were favored favored Isat year, too, and Madison went all the way to the championship championship game, only to lose a one-point decision to Jasper. Anderson's title hopes died in sectional play, the Indians dropping dropping their first .game to Uttle Lapel I in the most astounding up'set of! the entire four-week tourney. If both gel through the first two 1 tourney weeks, they'll clash in one! of the semi-final afternoon games, for the Shelbyville regional winner --\vbtch should 1 be Madison--collides Madison--collides with the Indianapolis champ --which may be Anderson. OF COURSE, one of the Indianapolis Indianapolis clubs, probably Tech, may give the dope bucket a good kick. If Anderson gets through ita rugged rugged sectional, where it clashes with last year's winner Summitville in the first game, the Indians movej up to the Butler fieldhouse for the! reffionals. Anderson is one of the most consistent consistent powerhouses in Hoosier high school net circles. Three times the Indians have captured the crown, the last time in 1946 under Charley Cummings. They made it to the "charmed circle" two years ago, too. Altogether, they've racked up 19 regional championships, made it to the four-team finals 11 times, and were runners-up six times. Anderson is loaded with talent again this year, and despite dropping dropping its last two gomes of the season season to Jasper and New Castle, represents represents a title threat second to none. Coach Keith Lambert can alternate his line-up in platoon-sys-j tern fashion. -His veterans am led by two Negro stars, Roy Young] and Gene Wilson, and Jack Tllley, Fred Cunningham, and Monte: McCune. McCune. MADISON, the United Press choice, will be gnnning'for Its; first. state crown. Coach Kay Eddy Is without the brilliant Dee Monroe and Ed Orrill this year, but has trio of fine performers in center Spcnce Schnaitter, Ed Cheatham and Ted Server. They closed their season with a record of 16 wins 18 starts, compartlble to last year when they won 17 games and dropped three, .Indianapolis Tech wound up the season with a six-gome winning streak, and a. record of 35 victories in 18 starts, to give Coach Herman H'inshaw's boys cause for optimism. Hinshaw lost only Tom Pollom from last year's outfit, headed again by center Charley Engle'rth. Tech and twice-beaten Southport, the sectional favorites, are in opposite opposite brackets. The .form chart hasn't held true in the Indianapolis sectional* for years, but if it does this year, Tech and Jewell Young's Southport Cardinals will clash in the sectional championship tilt.
