THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, February 1, 1963 Drake Gives Mighty Cincinnati A Scare By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer Drake, loser of eight games so far this season, came within one lone free throw of pulling the upset of the college basketball season Thursday night in a superlative effort against unbeaten Cincinnati. But when it was all over, the mighty Bearcats had escaped with a 65-60 overtime triumph, keeping their 34-game winning string intact and retaining a strong hold on their first in the nation rating. Loyola of Chicago and Niagara, the only other major unbeaten teams in the country, had much less trouble in stretching their strings. Loyola, ranked second in the nation, crushed Washington of St. Louis 118-58 for its 19 straight, and Niagara beat Georgetown, of Washington, D.C., 89-75 for its 10th straight. Wake Forest beat South Carolina 54-45 in a key Atlantic Coast Conference game, Kentucky held off Georgia 74-67, and in a Madison Square Garden doubleheader Bowling Green defeated St. John's, N.Y., 63-55 and Providence ripped Dayton 84-72. Cincinnati's scare against Drake was the Bearcats' toughest game of the season. Their previous closest games this season were a six-point triumph over Bradley and a seven-point edge over Dayton. The Bearcats, winners of 16 straight this season, trailed much of the way and came from behind to tie it 58-58 on two free throws by Tom Thacker with 2:17 left in regulation time. There was no further scoring until the overtime The lead changed hands 11 times before Thacker's two free throws tied it for the last time He missed a free throw that coulc have won it with 5 seconds left and also was wide on a following shot. In other major action, Rutgers broke a five-game losing string with a 90-83 victory over Lafa yette, St. Louis beat Marquette 73-62, Utah State coasted to a 9769 triumph over Utah, and Tulsa fought off Arkansas 68-66.

Thursday's 66 paired with an opening 69, made him the solo leader at 135. , Player with a 67-69 was one strike behind as was young Bob Shave Jr., Willoughby, Ohio, who had identical two-day cards. Both played Tamarisk. Palmer, still playing well off the tee but scrambling on the greens, shot a par 72 at Tamarisk. That with his opening 71 put him in a horde of 143 shooters. "My putting is awful, just awful," moaned Palmer, a two-time winner of the classic. Harold Kneece, first round co- leader, shot a 71 Thursday to go with his 66 opener to tie for third with 137. Johnny Pott (67-68) and Tommy Aaron (68-69) were in the same bracket. There were no near misses reported for the $50,000-added prize for a hole-in-one, which must be made over four selected holes, the shortest of which is 217 yards. PALM SPRINGS, Calif.

Eugene Jackson and Ramsey are slipping along with 7-point averages to back up the attack. Said Stevens: "Rosedale on a good night could beat you. They have proved to be a good road ball club as they whipped Bonner and Turner in their own gyms but failed to halt Argentine and Olathe when on their own floor." With two critical games on tap this weekend, Stevens does seem to have the edge but only on paper. The game will ell the story, story. The Cyclones sport the best 1-2-3 scoring punch in Harry Morton, 17.1 and the league's top scorer, Roy Dunn and Ronnie Mendell. Dunn is hitting a 14.2 average while Mendell has slipped to a 13.7 mark. Eddie Davidson and Jim Lewis have been consistent in their play recently as Lewis garnered 10 rebounds in the important Argentine tussle last week. Davidson proves valuable game after game for his hustle and added two assists to his credit last week plus four steals. "I hope the kids realize it'll take a tremendous team effort to stay on top. They deserve to win because they're tough. They're a great bunch," complimented Stevens. The varsity game will start at 8 on Saturday while the "B" game will be at 6:30. Hurlers Cheer, Hitters Moan Over Enlarged Strike Zone NEW YORK (AP) - As expected, the baseball rules committee's recent action in liberalizing the strike zone has brought sighs of relief from the pitchers and yelps from the hitters. "It's about time they got around to doing something for the pitchers," said Los Angeles pitching ace Don Drysdale, who probably was happier signing a $46,000 Dodger contract. "I'm glad they did it although I don't think it will affect me any. The new rule is more apt to help a pitcher like Sandy Koufax, who can really buzz that high hard one." The new strike zone—from the top of the shoulders to the knees instead of from the armpits to the top of the knees, is expected to enlarge that area by 10 inches, according to the estimate of Cal Hubbard, American League urn- pire-in-chief. Slugger Frank Roinson of the Cincinnati Reds doesn't like the new rule at all. "I've been in this game for nine years," he said, "and in all that time I've been trying to teach myself to lay off that high pitch on the shoulders because it's not a strike and it's a bad pitch to hit. Now, if I let it go, it will be a strike." Mickey Mantle, who cut down his strikeout -total appreciably last year, is another concerned over the rule change. "I'll probably strike out 401 times next season," he muttered. The Yankee switchhitter fanned only 78 times in 123 games, mark* ing one of the few times his strike* out total dipped below the century mark. Club officials, including field managers and general managers, are virtually unanimously in favor of the new high strike rule. "It's a great move," observed Bobby Bragan, the new manager of the Milwaukee Braves. "It will not only speed up the game but make it more interesting."

Main CH 2-3224 FREDERICK, Md., (AP)-At a minor indoor track meet in Balti more last Saturday, a 15-year-old school girl competed in the women's 50-yard low hurdles. Tammy Davis of Frederick, who stands 5-foot-3 and weighs 113, ran i n rubber-soled cross-country shoes on a slick, waxed floor cov ered with dust. Skimming effortlessly over hurdles higher than her waist, she won the event in 6.8 seconds. Her victory didn't generate much enthusiasm at the lightly- attended meet sponsored by the Cross City Club of Baltimore—un- 1 it was later discovered that her time was a national women's indoor record. Mrs. Libuse Lomsky of Baltimore, a former Czech hurdles star, said after the meet that Tammy could have cut three- tenths of a second from her time with a better track surface, spike shoes and a strong field. Tammy is a member of the Frederick Track and Field Club. So is another 15-year-old, long- legged Debbie Thompson, the youngest girl ever named to a U.S. track team. During the past two years, residents of Frederick (population 22,000) have contributed almost $3,000 toward transportation for- the girls of the track club. The payoff has been a patchwork of success from New York's Madison Square Garden to the Los Angeles Coliseum. Friday, Debbie and the relay team are competing in the Millrose Games in New York. On Saturday, Debbie will run in Philadelphia. The Herald pays $5 every week for the best news tip turned in by a reader.
