W. Va., to meet the front-running Blues for the second straight night. The Dukes reduced • Wheeling's first-place margin.. to a 'half-game by nosing out the West Virginians, 55-48, before a jam-packed' crowd of more than 1,000 last night at the SS. Peter and Paul School gym. The official paid attendance was 910. . The setback was 'the second in as many nights for Wheeling, the Blues having dropped a 53-49 decision to the Altoona- Flyers -Satur-, day night at Altoona. As a. result of" last night's victory,' the Dukes and Flyers are again tied for second place. Score Tied Ten Times Last night's « game, incidentally, wax a slam-bang affair from start to finish, with the score being locked ten times .before the Dukes' finally pulled ahead to stay. The Blues were handicapped by the almost total loss of Jim Quinlan. flhe league's leading scorer. QuinJac 'MS been suffering with . a -back •ArnMii and saw only limited action J»K . night. The "Blond Bomber", »bo is all but unstoppable !o the pivot «k»t, got only five shots Hi the hoop *cd several other attempts were blocked by Paul "Obie" Oberhaus and Gus Frizzell. The two-day road trip seemed to have its effect on the invading Blues in the final quarter. They just didn't seem to be- able to keep up. the killing pace at which both teams traveled during the .'first three quarters, and the Duires were quick to take 'advantage of the lapse. Dukes Pull AJiead With Bob Pence, Coach "Bed" Klotz and Lou Bell laying the scoring eggs, the Dukes pullec-away to a ten-point advantage with five minutes remaining and- then dung desperately to the lead. Up until that time the outcome of the game was as doubtful as the past presidential election at midnight on' the day of the voting. Emotions of .the crowd seemed to risf and fall .with each exchange of baskets. The Blues, whose slick offensive is just about the best in the league •when it comes to keeping the ball hopping, experienced trouble hanging onto possession, as the' Dukes fought tooth-and-nail for 'control &r the leather off the backboards. •Wheeling's zone defense in the early part of the game proved in-. effective as the Dukes, found the i-anse .from .the out-si'de, and ' although the score, was (tied five times during the first stanza, the locals boasted a 14-10 edge .when "• the period- closed. Carroll Connects •Bobby Carroll, former West .Virginia University sharpshooter,, popped in a basket- from mid-floor as the> second quarter got under way and continued to inspire the Blues •w'th his shooting during the period. Cumberland had a three-point lead -with only seconds . remaining before the hah" but Jule Rtvlin. the Bines' player-coach, intercepted Ken Hasgeny's desperate pass under the Wheeling basket and. dropped In a • two-pointer as the whistle sounded, the end of the half hostilities .finding the locals on the long end of a 29-28 count. Carroll, Jimmy Ruch-. and -Rlvhn combined to put Wheeling, out in front on -three different occasions during the third quarter, but an eve-popping one-hander 'thrown in ffom the right corner by Klotz with & mtaute-and-a-half to go shoved the Dukes in the lead to stay.- The accent seemed to be on defense in this torrid period which drew to a close with the Dukes on the long end of a 41-38 count. . . Bell Top Scorer. The Dukes had the best of it. in the "shooting war," making .19 01 their 69 attempts. Wheeling's 1 total for the night showed 17 fielders in O. tries from the floor. Bell ,-wouud up as the games it-adlnR soorcr,~ milking six field coals and four of .ibc foul throws for * 16-point total. Pence und Haecerty each accounted for a dozen Duke tallies. Rlvlin in addition to serving as his team's playniaker, led -the Wheeling attack with ten points, while Ruch and Carroll were run- nersup with nine apiece.

The picture -really isn't that. bright, though, and. here's why : Baylor Is tied ' with. Texas at 2-0 in the Southwest- Conference, but looks definitely second-best in the overall games.

St. 1 Louis, which played second fiddle to the Aggies in' the Conference last year, ;s out for revenge. Bradley, a newcomer, could -upset the dope, although it lost-its first league start to the Billikens. . And then there are the cases of North Carolina 'State in the' Southern and'Brigham'Young in the Skyline six. Neither of these teams has played in its own circuit, but the competition looks rugged. Utah, 2-0 in the Conference, and Wyoming, 10-3 for the- year, rate ahead of BYU on performance. .N.C. State, just back from a hazardous 12,000 .mile .tour, has a disappointing 7-6'record so far. However, the Southern title isn't determined until a tournament 1 in March. ' . ; Michigan, the.
