SPORTS St VJ 3 Associated Press Wirephoto GOOD TRY Portland's guard Ken Strode (35) misses on a lay-up shot after being fouled by Murray's forward Joe Mikez (17). The play occurred in the NAIB. tournament at Kansas City last night. Also trying to block the try is Murray guard Bennie Purcell (21). Story Page 2. Murray's Purcell Talk of Tourney Veteran K. C.

Wailed For Opportunity Best example of Purcell's bril could try for another bucket. That was the game Murray had to win. The rest of the contests have been simpler for the Ken-tuckians, but the Buffaloes presented a real problem because of their height. The victory was a liance came during the West tribute to Purcell s cool thinking Texas State game Wednesday, under fire against much taller With the score tied and the competitors.

He got his shot off at the last second but failed to hit and the game went into an overtime. West Texas and Murray swapped points in the overtime and the same situation came up with half a minute to play. Again Purcell controlled the ball, dribbled and barked signals Central Plays Dunbar Today Frankfort, Ky., March 14. Central High will meet Dunbar in the semi-f i n a 1 s of the K.H.S.A.L. here Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. In the other semifinal bout, Paris will oppose Fee of Maysville at 2:30.

On his shoulders ride Murray's hopes tonight and tomorrow night for a high spot in the final rankings. Murray's success in advancing to the championship game largely has been due to the balance of the Thoroughbreds' attack. Four Murray regulars have pretty well split the scoring burden. Beshear leads Murray in individual scoring with 60 points in the four contests. Bennie Purcell has totaled 55, Lampley 54, and Joe Mikez .53. The fifth starter, Mel Deweese, has scored 35. Penn State Forces Rupp To Change U. K.'s Offense By LARRY BOECK The choice of Perm State as an N.C.A.A. tournament team was as much of a surprise to Adolph Rupp, apparently, as it was to many other people. And Der Baron didn't seem particularly delighted that his Kentucky Wildcats had drawn Penn State as a first round foe instead or one oi the season s he had expected LaSalle, and perhaps St. Bonaventure, to be the at-large teams in the regional play at Raleigh, N. C, March 21 and 22. Penn State will play UJC., and St. John's, a 41 -point victim of ILK. early this season, will oppose North Carolina State, the Southern Conference titleholder. "We're going to have to change our offense," said Rupp, after learning his Cats would meet Penn State. "I hadn't been figuring on bumping into the zone." He had thought, apparently, highly-touted powerhouses such hat e Wildcats would encoun- lei d xctsi. icciiii, 2ui;ii eta xjczaic, as LaSalle. "They play the zone defense," said Rupp. "They handle the ball deliberately and pass it around waiting for shots. That kind of a bunch can spell trouble for a fast-breaking, fast-moving team such as ours." ' 3 Men In Sector The zone defense, to put it as simply as possible, is one in which the defending team -plays the ball instead of the player, as in man-to-man. Normally, a team using the zone "overloads" an area of the court three men will play the sector and be on two offensive men, perhaps Cliff Hagan and Frank Ramsey, in Kentucky's case. The team on offense usually Here's the schedule for the fotir regional N.C.A.A. tournaments which open play next Friday, March 21: At Raleigh Kentucky (27-2), Southeastern Conference champion, vs. Penn State (20-4): North L Carolina State (23-9), Southern Conference champion, vs. tt. John's (22-4). At Chicago Illinois (19-3), Big Ten champion, vs. Dayton (27-3); Princeton (16-8),. Ivy League champion, vs. Duquesne (22-2). At Kansas City Kansas (22-2), Big Seven champion, vs. Texas Christian (22-3), Southwest Conference champion; New Mexico A. & M. (21-8), Border Conference champion, vs. St. Louis University (22-7), Missouri Valley Conference champion. At Corvallis Santa Clara (15-9), vs. U.C.L.A.

Rupp indicated yesterday that ROLLER SKATf which employs the double pivot with 6-7 and 6-8 men. Team Scores Well Still, Rupp says he doesn't consider Penn State (winner of 20 of 24 games) a free ride into the second round of the Raleigh regional. "They're big enough to cause us trouble," commented Der Baron.' "We got a scouting report on them by telephone and I understand they have 6-6 and 6-7 men as starters. "What's more, they score heav- Saxton Cops 26th In Row New York, March 14 (P) Undefeated Johnny Saxton won his 26th straight fight tonight when Referee Harry Kessler disqualified Lester Felton of Detroit, for continuous holding. The bout was halted at 1:31 of the sixth round of the Madison Square Garden 10-rounder. Robert Christ enberry, chairman of the State Athletic Commission, immediately ordered Felton's purse held up. Warned In Third The referee warned Felton from the third round on to "get in there and fight" and in the sixth round he told the Detroit Negro, who was subbing for Johnny Bratton, "This is the last time I'm going to warn you. Let's have a fight." The small crowd of 3,958 which paid $14,259 started booing and clapping hands from the third round on as the welterweights huffed and puffed and held. ily .for a team that doesn't shoot too much, waiting for the better shots. They've been up there in the 70's and 80's pretty consistently this season." The Penn Staters, by the way, played that unique to say the least ball game several weeks ago.

More-man led the way with six more points and Valley led 25-12 at the first quarter's end. Moreman was hurt shortly after the second quarter began as he dribbled over the center line. Attempting to pivot and pass off, he collided, not too hard, with a Creeker and twTisted his ankle. Loyless Gets 23 From that point on, Les Loyless, scoring with a surprising assortment of shots, led the Viking attack. He finished as the biggest scorer of both games, getting 23 points. Valley led 44-23 at halftime and 56-30 at the third rest. Buddy Bunch came in after Moreman left and turned in an outstanding performance with 11 points.
