Niehoff has won a place among first- string seniors with performance in earlier games. Heavyweight Fight In Courtroom First NEW YORK (AP) - Unless this is all a lot of ballyhoo-and it might be-the Floyd Patterson- Sonny Listen rematch very well may be staged in a courtroom before it reaches Patterson, who a ring, has the con- tractural rights to name the date, site and promoter, announced Wednesday that the fight would be held in Miami Beach, April 4, under the promotion of Championship Sports, Inc. Listen's first reaction was that he was less than completely enchanted about it all. Then Thursday he came out with a firm "no." Which means, at the moment, the fight is off again. Or at least up in the air. Actually, neither Patterson nor Liston are making their comments directly. They're coming through attorneys, advisors and such like, Patterson's attorney, Julius November and Listen's advisor, Jack Nilon. Liston, of course, gained the THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, January 11, 1963 title with a first-round knockout of Patterson in Chicago Sept. 23. Under the terms of the contract for that fight, Patterson holds the right to name the date, site and promoter. There also is a clause calling for a $1 million penalty in case Liston violates the contract. • But if Liston won't fight on Patterson's terms: "We'll yc> to court," said November. "We don't want to do that. But what else can you do?" "Sonny met Patterson in the ring and he can meet him in court." replied Nilon in the Liston camp. Judged by their performances gainst Franklin County teams, rtelvern and Quenemo should hange rankings in the Osage bounty League basketball tournament which will open Monday at Jurlingame. Melvern is ranked No. 1 in the ournament and Quenemo fourth. n Coach Gene Otis' Melvern Panthers 6-2 record are losses to ranklin County League teams, Williamsburg and Pomona. Bearcats, Ramblers Still Roll By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The top-ranked Bearcats of Cincinnati and second-ranked Ramblers of Loyola reached the lalfway mark of their schedules Thursday night with unblemished records. Cincinnati's two-time NCAA champions, getting a 29-point performance from Ron Bonham, rang up victory No. 12 and their 30th in a row over a two-season span by whipping North Texas State 75-58 in a Missouri Valley Conference game. Loyola's national scoring leaders, sparked by Jerry Harkness' 26-point effort, pushed over the century mark for the eighth time, clobbering Western Michigan of the Mid-American Conference 10769 for victory No. 15. In two other Missouri Valley clashes, eighth-ranked Wichita used Dave Stallworth's 22 points and Ernie Moore's ball-hawking as the main weapons in a 71-65 triumph over St. Louis, and Tulsa defeated Drake 79-72 after a basket by sophomore Carlos Cripado broke it open. William & Mary upended Virginia Tech 78-63 as Bob Harris scored 25 points and left West Virginia the only unbeaten team in he Southern Conference. In another league game, Furman hit ix consecutive foul shots in the ast 69 seconds to subdue Davidson 65-63. Elsewhere, soph Rick Barry scored 31 points as once-beaten Miami, Fla., defeated Florida 8677, Holy Cross got by Massachusetts 68-61, Providence beat Rhode Island 75-67, New Orleans Loyola edged Memphis State 78-75, Gonzaga belted Washington State 7356 and Pepperdine downed Hawaii 64-59. Coach L. C. Haughn's Quenemo team has won 4 and lost 4 but holds a win over Pomona. Melvern has beaten Quenemo, however. Anyway, such statistics often are meaningless when athletic teams get together, and both Quenemo and Melvern are to be reckoned with in the tournament action at Burlingame. Coach Haughn and his assistant, Devine Montoya, will be counting heavily on a 6-man front line which includes five seniors and a sophomore when they take on Carbondale at 8:20 p.m. Monday in their first tournament game. Leading Quenemo will be a 5-9 senior guard, Jim Gragg, who has averaged IG'/j points per game this season. Excessive fouls and a sprained ankle limited him to two quarters on the floor in two of the games. The other seniors are Joe Hoover, 5-8 guard; Ben Lewis, 5-11 senior; Jim Casten, 5-11 fore- ward, and Jim Perry, 5-8 forward. One of the brightest promises in the Quenemo lineup is the sophomore, 6-foot George Niehoff, who has performed like a seasoned regular in earlier outings. The toughest challenger to Melvern and Quenemo is unbeaten Overbrook. Both Overbrook and Melvern will enter the tournament with 3-0 league records. Quenemo has a 1-2 league count with losses to Overbrook and Scranton and the victory over Carbondale. The other teams and their league records are Lyndon, 2-1; Scranton, 2-1; Olivet, 1-2; Burlingame, 1-2, and Carbondale, 0-3. TWO OF A KIND — Senior Forward Jim Casten (left) and Senior Center Ben Lewis, both at 5-11, add experience to Quenemo's first-line attack.

It will be the first conference »ame for K-State, which seems on the verge of jelling into a top ;eam after some early season problems. The Wildcats should get Dast Nebraska with little trouble, setting up a crucial match with Colorado Monday at Boulder, where K-State hasn't won since 1959. Colorado, now 2-0, is host to Missouri Saturday night. Kansas won the Big Eight holiday tourney with some inspired play and hot shooting, beating Colorado, Iowa State and K-State. But the Jayhawks were soundly beaten by Colorado's defending champs last week. Coach Dick Harp believes his team can get back in the race by regaining its team effort of the tournament After Iowa State, Kansas plays Missouri Monday.

Harp expects to have Al Correll, long-armed 6- foot-3 senior, back for the second semester, for eight league games. Correll is one of the league's best frontliners.

Whitlow, who retires from the USAF Feb. 1, says that before the Cub offer his only objective was to "make the transition to Mr." The military career of the Fresno, Calif., native includes: A West Point appointment and winning seven letters there in baseball, football and basketball; eight Nazi aircraft destroyed as a P51 pilot in World War E, operations staff officer at several bases here and in Germany and France, and first athletic director of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, serving from 1954 until 1957.
