i PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE r Wednesday; Dec .36,1964, Tipton Drops To T5fh In UPI Cage Ratings By KURT FREUDENTHAL United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)— Gary Roosevelt will take the No. 1 rating in Indiana high school basketball into the Christmas holiday recess. For many of Indiana's top quintets, it won't be much of a respite from the hardwood wars, since they'll be busy cutting each other' up in holiday tournaments—the preview of the four-week state tourney which opens late in February. In the meantime, Roosevelt's 'Panthers polled 12 of 18 first- place votes in the final UPI coaches' board ratings of. 1964 for a total of- 156 points. Coach Bo Mallard's powerhouse closed last week with a 5-game winning streak and its only start this week is Saturday night at South Bend Central, which has dropped its last three games. Unbeatens Elwood of the Central Conference and independent Indianapolis Manual were added to the elite while Columbus ad Tipton were demoted to the second 10. Manual Beat Columbus Elwood received state - wide recognition, climbing from 12th "place to eighth, after weekend victories over Huntington, last March's slate tourney runnerup, and Indianapolis Cathedral. Manual, - perhaps fielding its strongest club since the days of the VanArsdale twins, now stars at Indiana, was prompted from 18th -spot to a tie for ninth after clipping Columbus' 47-game regular season winning streak, 7971. North Central Conference powers Anderson and Kokomo were deadlocked for second place with 129 t points apiece. Kokomo was second last week, Anderson third. Anderson, which entertains East Chicago Washinton in Friday's "game of the week," received three first- place tallies, Kokomo one. Indianapolis Washing ton stepped up from fifth place to fourth and East Chicago, although undefeated, skidded one notch, from fourth to fifth. South Bend Washington remained sixth despite the fact it lost at Fort Wayne North last Saturday. Gary Froebel moved from eighth to seventh, and Evansville Rex Mundi, 10th last week, tied Manual for ninth spot. Columbus slipped from seventh place to 14th and Tipton from ninth to 15th after losing at home to Frankfort last weekend. The panel selected 31 teams, two less than last seek.

The Oilers of the American Football League, who have managed to sign only three draft picks, ,said they hoped the 234- pound lineman would gain about 15 pounds before next season. - Dragons Take Home Another The second time around might have been a little tougher than when Windfall opened the season with a 92.-63 triumph over Walnut Grove, but coach Ray Watson's cagers made the outcome stick, this - time") away from home, with a 35-43 victory. And in fh'e process Watson used 11 boys in the lineup although only the starting unit broke into scoring figures. A good first quarter in which the Dragons took a 16-7 lead, held up through a 14-4 second quarter. Windfall upped the margin by one, 10-9 in the third period and then : cemented the win in a 15-13 final frame. iBoth teams had nine points at the' foul line although Walnut Grove committed 16 personals to only 10 for the victors, but Windfall unlimbered • its big guns from the floor scoring 23 field goals to only 17 for the losers. Craig Plummer was held to five points but had numerous feeding assists in setting up the Dragons' two double - figure scorers, Steve Pierce with 16 and Gary Stout with 21. Windfall, also won B-team honors with a 37-33 triumph. The box score: WINDFALL FG FT PTS Pierce -6 4 16 Hoback 2 1 . 5 Clouser .-4 0 8 G. Stout 9 3 . 21 Plummer 2 1 5 J.

Tickets may be ordered at the Claypool Hotel Ticket Agency, for . the show which will be held in the Coliseum. On Friday Nighf Tipton Friday night. will be up against the toughest has faced this "year. There is no question about it. It might be the best in the conference^ certainly it i s the biggest. To. date, like Tipton, it hasn't shown, the combined ability of which it is capable, but ngainst the Blue Devils coach Bob Riddle's boys have always been at their best. Even against Tipton 's great team of last season, with Peru just so-so, (they . finished 6-14 and lost their first sectional game) they pushed Tipton .hard and scored 77 points against the Devils. Leading their attack will be Mike Eikenberry. Last year,, guarded by Harvey Harmon, Eikenberry scored 37 points against Tipton. "Eike" as he's called by his teammates, is bigger (6'6'.-;") now. Oddly he gets few rebounds off the Peru offensive board. The reason is because he's such a deadly outside shot that he fires from 15-20,feet out and isn't in position to get his own rebounds. But on the defensive board he's really rugged and in addition to his height, takes up a lot of space at 200 pounds. •' .. Job For Someone >.. • We don*t know right" now who coach Dick Barr will give .the job of stopping Eikenberry,' for at the same time the Tip!|i bossmah will have the job of trying to put someone under the board while Mike is outside, to . try to get the rebounds away j from 6'4'' and 185 pound Kenny Day. And although he's not as big, Rick Inniger, the other forward who weighs 165 and stands G'l" is faster, quicker and a better jumper. Playing last year for Berne, Inniger was the team's leading scorer and. he|s a kid brother of I.U. sophomore guard Erv Inniger. And in case either of them gets into-foul trouble coach Bob Biddle sends in Gayle Bnmar, the all conference quarterback in football who transferred to Peru from Kentucky, • and Rob Rockenbaugh, the fullback who is 11 just .getting back into action after suffering a concussion in his final footbal] game. Tail Twister? Yowsuh! Those Tigers are gonna be'tough -and we don't know yet who coach B.arr is going to assign the job of twisting their tails. We do say this. It is going to take the best game Tipton has played this year if they still want to be on top of the conference standings Saturday.
