Eastern Cage Strength Weak Editors: This is the last of eight dispatches sizing up college basketball prospects in various sections of the country. The East By MARTIN LADER UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (DPI) — The accent will be on the individual in Eastern basketball' circles this season, where such as Bill Bradley of Princeton and Dave Bing of Syracuse should distract attention from a substandard group of teams. Syracuse and Villanova appear to be the best of the lot for team honors, although there are a lot of big "ifs" to be sorted out before a true analysis of the East picture can be attempted. Only the Orangemen, who are built around Bing, a 6-3 Junior guard, an« 6-8 Senior center Chuck Richards, boast a solid lineup among the major powers. Sophs Are Key Even Villanova, which was the class of the East last season with a 24-4 record, faces a rebuilding task following the loss of top scorer .Wally Jones through graduation and No. 2 scorer Richie Moore who is scholastically ineligble. The success of key Sophomores will tell a large part of the story at Villanova, just as they will at such other institutions as St. John's Boston College, Providence, Pittsburgh and New York University. While the East is unlikely to produce a contender for the national title, it very well may prove a dominating force in the all-America balloting. Bradley, a 6-5 all-everything, made the team as 'a Junior last season and was a member of the victorious U.S. Olympic basketball squad at Tokyo. In addition to Bing, who averaged 22.2 points per game last season, other outstanding individual performances are ex-" pected from John Austin of Boston College, Mike Silliman of Army, Jim Washington of Villanova, Willie Somerset of Duquesne and Jim Barry of Georgetown. The Washington, D.C. school, incidentally, could prove a big surprise with one of its best teams ever. Army Dark Horse Another dark horse candidate for top honors is Army, which has an all-veteran team returning. In addition to the talented Silliman, the Cadets will field Bill Helkie, John Ritch, Joe Koscuisko and Dennis Shantz from the team that turned in a 19-7 record last season. The Syracuse saga is an inspiring one, authored principally by coach- Fred Lewis. The Orangemen won only two games in 1961-62, the season before Lewis was hired. The following year they captured eight games and last season the number went to 17.

C-47 Satans Wi Of Season With four boys in double figures, Tipton Wednesday night readied for its conference debut next Friday against Muncie Burris,. scoring a 103-77 triumph over neighboring Sharpsville- Prairie. The Blue Devils shot into an early lead and were never headed although the Spartans clung on tenaciously, and it wasn 't until the final period when Donnie Curnutt hit seven straight buckets that Tipton pulled out- of reach. Curnutt, in just his second game of the season set a new school scoring record for one game with 19 field goals and four free throws for 42 points that erased the one-season old record of 39 points established last year by Dick Mcintosh against Kokomo and equalled later in the year against Oak Hill. Mcintosh, home for a brief holiday from the University of Georgia was in the stands and not only saw the new record es- Eagles Bow To Eastern It just wasn't Jackson Central's night as they hosted a red- hot shooting Eastern Wednesday and when the Comets ended up the evening by sinking 41 of 76 shots for a .539 average and adding to that 21 of 24 free throw attempts for an .875 record, the final score was 103 to 63 favor Eastern. c- Dave Leach got into action and gave some help under the boards but Eastern had the overall height advantage and that coupled with the scorching shooting kept the Comets' in front all the way. It was 27-10 at the quarter and 52-32- at halftime. The Eagles shot a respectable 21 of 64, paced by .Francis Schildmeier's 12 of 21, and he was their high scorer with 24 points and Ken Carson, capitalizing on 11 of 12 free throw shooting also got into double figures with 19 points. Jackson Central was great on the free- throw shooting also with 21 of 25 for an .840 percentage. The preliminary also went to Eastern in a real battle, 50-43.

Tipton won the preliminary 54-45. Coach Dick 'Barr' used 11 players inlthe contest and eight of them broke into the scoring column led by Bill Moore with 17 points, Dan Crouch with 13 and Lex Boyd with 11. Tom Carter, held to one field goal in the first half, sank four fielders in each of the last tyro periods, plus, three free throws in the third quarter, to finish as the Spartan's high scorer with 23 points and he got double figure help from Roger Stout with 20 and Denny Cullison with 17. Boyd Hit Well Curnutt started slowly, hitting only two of six field goal attempts in the opening period but Lex iBoyd tallied three field goals, Crouch hit two and Moore and Keith Smith added one. These were bolstered with three free throws by Moore, two by Gary Meyers and one by Crouch as Tipton moved into a 24-16 yead at the end of the first eight minutes. Curnutt started gaining momentum in the second period after missing his first shot and closed out the half with five baskets in a row plus a pair of free throws that gave him 16 points as the teams leff the floor. The Spartans, showing great hustle, refused to give up after trailing 51-34 when the third period opened, and outscored the Blue Devils in that quarter 24-21. Zook added a field goal, Stout hit two buckets and a free throw and Kingery and Cullison each tossed in buckets to go with Carter's hot hand. The final quarter was all Tipton, however, despite the fact that Keith Smith and Lex Boyd fouled out and Barr substituted freely with the Satans running up a 31-19 bulge in the last eight minutes. Following the game coach Barr gave a lot of praise to the Sharpsville-Prairie hustle ami. said if ..they played out the season that way, they're going to win a , lot of ball games despite the fact that this was tHeir third loss in a row without a victory. On his own club he distributed praise pretty widely. Defensively Keith Smith did a great job with two steals on. almost consecutive plays, early in the game that set up scores which moved the Blue Devils into the lead. Outstanding on defense also was Dan Crouch who Barr said played the best game of his career. Lex Boyd too came into that category, he and Bill Moore teaming with some great rebounding by the jumping-jaok Smith to give Tipton command under the boards. Gary Meyers sank seven of eight free throws to give him 13 in 14 tries for the young season, although again going 0 for-5 in the field goal department, and Barr said, "He's tight as a drum, but with a couple more games under his belt he'll start hitting—and then watch out!" The coach also fejt that Dave Quigley played his' best game and with seven points in relief of Boyd is going to be a real contender for starting honors before the season is over. Jim Hannah failed to dent the scor ing column, but showed great hustle on both offense and de fense, as did Bill Elliott when he got onto action. Jerry Carter not only handled the ball well but'notched his first-of many expected field goals, and young Jim Harmon showed a lot of hustle in the moving of the ball, i The team faces a hard week of preparation for "Muncie Bur ris which notched up its third victory without a loss over Yorktown Wednesday night.

The first game will pit Hammond Clark against Fort Wayne Central which won Wednesday night 65-57 from Fort Wayne Catholic. The opening night winners meet for the title Tuesday night. On Vacation It was good to see Dick Mcintosh in the stands Wednesday night, home briefly for some home cooked turkey over the holiday. Dick has to be back in uniform for a Sunday 7 p.m. practice at the University of Georgia. The similarity between Dick and young brother Terry doesn't end in appearance. Terry hit 29 points in the B-team game that night against the Spartan reserves. Word of another recent alumnus from T.H.S. is that Dick's former teammate is going great guns at the University of Hawaii. Harvey Harmon wound up a recent scrimmage against the varsity with three stitches over one eye but before he departed from that game he had accounted for 28 points. No wonder coach Red Rocha writes so enthusiastically about Harvey's progress to coach Dick Barr. Mcintosh was enthusiastic over Curnutt's performance Wednesday. After congratulating the "splendid splinter", Dick came over to the scoring table and said he was sure glad to see Donnie coming through the way he. is. Mac looks in even better trim than he was for the Indiana - Kentucky all star classic ... a picture of health. Improving We were really glad to see the improving performances Ojf some of Tipton's B-team sophomores. Larry Deakyne was. sidelined with the flu and didn't dress for the game but with he and .Mcintosh working together in the .backcourt, Tipton's future dosen't look as bleak as that nearly-all underclass lineup would seem next year. We were very impressed with young Bill Compton's work under the boards. With two years to go, •Bill is going to be a real "horse" on rebounds by the time he's a senior. And Bob Shortle too is coming along nicely. Oren Rector doesn't get a lot of points,, but he's extremely vaulable in his role as a playmaker and several others are also starting to shape up. The boys were pressing a little too hard in that last quarter a s Sharpsville- Prairie whittled ten points off the Tipton B-team lead, but coach Johnny Woods called a time out at just the right point and the boys held their own the rest of the game. Lots of Praise Coach Dick Barr was plenty pleased with his team's performance after the game and pre dieted there will be plenty of "full houses" before this season is ended. We asked him about what he considered a couple of defensive lapses yesterday morning while having coffee with him and Mrs. Barr and the Tipton mentor just grinned and said he had told his boys during" the week not to pay any attention to this typewriter pounder and other fans who moaned about that occasional "sleeper" getting under the basket. He said the Devils are playing a running game, and when they have all five boys down under the. Opponent's basket they're going to get a lot more rebounds and a lot more steals, not io mention a lot more points, than they would if they kept two guys away in the backcourt guarding against possible sleepers. Sounds logical at that, doesn't it! High On Donnie Barr told us "they can talk all they want to about Rick Mount. (Lebanon's 6'3" guard) As far as I'm concerned, Donnie Curnutt isn't just the best shot in Indiana, he's the best in the United States . . . he's high school All America." But Barr doesn't just talk of Donnie when he's on the subject of basketball. » College Guard We mentioned Bill Moore roving the backcourt and bringing the ball across the 10-second line and Barr's face • lit up like a beacon. "That's where he'll be playing in college and I want to see him get used to the position . . . he's big ten material without any doubt . . . you can see from his free-throw shooting that he can hit from 15 feet out and he's hitting .500 in the field goal department ... Bill likes to play the boards and shoot from in under but he'll get plenty of baskets from outside too that will catch other teams napping before the season is over." Barr was also enthusiastic- about Danny Crouch's game. He said "You can call Curnutt's game tremendous but Danny was just GREAT- That was'the best game he's ever played for us and. he played some terrific ball last year. He was not only covering his own man but other guys as well. GOOD BENCH And Barr didn't just stop with his three returned starters. He called Keith Smith's game the best he's played for us yet. He feels Smith is just a little bit tight yet on his shooting, but hjs defensive play is outstanding. He also thought Lex Boyd played the best game he has ever turned in in four years of high school ball. "He's doing everything we expected of him in his freshman year when we had'that great ball club and under the boards he's all man." Probably the brightest part of the picture is the bench strength. Dave Quigley is getting in a lot of game time and improving with every minute of it. He's got a natural shot and 12 points in just two games is not to be sneezed at. In addition," he's getting a lot of hands on the ball in those tip attempts. Barr is just waiting to see Gary Meyer, get his "feel" from the (Continued on Page 6) Get Holiday Items From Tipton Merchants OPEN HOUSE DOOR PRIZES FOR MONDAY EVENING—NOVEMBER 30 1 Ladies' or Man's Wallet Imprinted Free 2 lb; Box Fannie May Candies 1 lb.
