East Chicago Favored Elwood plays in the Madison Heights tourney, Garfield at East Chicago, where the once- beaten host Senators are top dogs, and Harrison and Rex Mundi play at Evansville. Anderson ran its season record to eight in a row, beating New Castle in the finals of its Saturday show, 80-70. Marion won the all-North Central Conference shoot at Loin the title go, 90-53. Huntington, runnerup in the state tourney last March, prevailed in its own show, edging New Haven in the finale, 64-61, after New Haven derailed Fort Wayne North in the preliminaries, 77-66.

Muncie Central Returns Muncie's five - time state champs will be back in harness for ' 14 regular season games. They got in plenty of practice licks for varsity competition by playing four games against strong independent teams. Although they lost three of them, the Bearcats could be among the state's strongest clubs by the end of the- season since they have good size and balance. The only major unbeaten teams idle this week are Anderson and Washington. The two Indianapolis unbeatens, Manual (Continued on page 8) Celtics Continue Unbeaten String Against Detroit . By United Press International The Detroit Pistons make a good target this year for Cincinnati coach Jack McMahon, who last season' blasted other National Basketball Association teams for being Boston Celtic patsies, while his Royals were the only club to do consistently well against the champion Celts. Boston beat Detroit Sunday night for the sixth time without a loss this.season, 112-106. Coincidently, the Celts also lead the Eastern Division by six games over runnerup Cincinnati. The Pistons, playing before their former home town, fans in Fort Wayne, led Boston by as many as' 18 points during the first half. But Sam Jones, who scored 40-points, and John Havlicek,' who pumped in two baskets to. break a' 104-104 tie, proved too much for the 'Pistons. Player-coach Dave De- Busscherre had' 26-points for the losersl : Cincinnati's : Oscar; Robertson put on another one-man scoring show with 48 points but a well-balanced 'Baltimore Bullet attack beat the Royals, 126-119. Gus Johnson and Walt Bellamy had 32-points each for the Bullets while teammates Don Ohl had 25 and Baily Howell 21. St. Louis broke a four-game losing streak at the expense of the New York Knickerbockers, 99-89, witlT Hawks stars Bob Pettit and Richie Guerin out with injuries.

JEFFERSON TIPTON Congratulations arSiin ;order for two members of the CIC which more than held up conference prestige Saturday with tournament wins against outside opposition. Huntington for the fourth year in a row won its own holiday tourney turning back Jasper 8274 in the afternoon opener and then edging New Haven 64-61 for the championship after the latter club had pulled a major upset against tourney favorite Fort Wayne North 77-66 in the other afternoon elimination. And going to Twin Lakes, Peru ended a two-game losing Streak by downing Pioneer 67-55 then defeating a good West Lafayette team .81-72 in that title game. The Tigers are now 6-3 on the season while Huntington is 6-1. , Elwood Picked Elwood, undefeated after seven games and rated fourth in the state in the latest wire service !. poll, has to he rated a favorite [in the tourney starting tonight at Anderson Madison Heights , where the other two schools in- i elude NoblesviHe and the CIC's Alexandria. Alex holds a 49-48 victory over the host school in regular season play but may be hard pressed to.repeat that triumph, while Elwood meets NoblesviHe, a team it has al-ready defeated by 24 points 7854. •" I Hammond Wide Open The Hammond Tourney can be j considered nothing but a wide' open affair. Tipton and Fortj Wayne Central enter with the best credentials, both 5-2 in regu- 1 lar season play, but host Hammond High and hometown Hammond Clark have met some off the strongest competition in the state in compiling 4-3 and 4-4 marks respectively. A victory [ lj for any one of the four could not be considered an upset. An increasing number of Tipton fans have made last minute arrangements to attend the Hammond game tonight and then remain in Hammond overnight for tomorrow's champion-; ship and consolation affairs. We | remind all, however, that if Tip-' ton defeats Hammond tonight and gets into the Tuesday night final, tickets will be available at the door for the one-night session at only $1.00. . Left After Breakfast . After feeding his boys a breakfast of ham and eggs at S.-30 this morning in Tipton, coach Dick .Ajarr and his Blue Devils- left |iby' private cars.for Hammond where they'll rest upon arrival at a^ motor-inn just ten .minutes from the Civic Center ; where the tourney. is played - arid' remain there*' overnight- for the second day of the tourney. '. -\Barr was making'no predictions. "The kids are capable and they know'these: are the two toughest teams they've met so far this season. I HOPE we come back with another pair of. vic tories . . . they'll be real good ones . . .but bow they'll react up there I don't know. They won't get .much , rest the remainder of the season with the schedule facing-us, so if they're going to jell, t h i s - is about time to start." Bearcats Open . This MAY be a long, long week for Hammond Clark unless it comes through with, a holiday tourney victory tonight and tomorrow. After these two games, Hammond travels to Muncie Central Saturday' night where the Bearcats return to action after a one-year suspension from the I.H.S.A.A. It was a bitter (blow to Muncie — that layoff, particularly for the track and football boys who had no part of last year's hardwood shenanigans, but the entire community has taken it' well and we'd bet there won't be a vacant seat in the gym Saturday. The Bear .cats'have-also benefited to an extent in , basketball in that while the other state prep schools have all had their, share of patsies in getting down to business, the only competition Muncie could find was college freshman, junior college and independent teams comprised of former" college stars. The Bearcats had a couple of losses in that'style of company but even then they were in contention in all their games and when they get back to the level of high school play they'll be rongh indeed ... in both senses of the word. Independent ball is infinitely rougher—far more contact—than high school ball, and it may take a few games to rub off some of that roughness but by state tourney time they'll also be rough in the other sense of the word. .Playing Dirty? The implication is out that Tipton played "dirty" in its last encounter prior to the holidays. That game wasn't half as "rough" as the Wabash game and it is 1 interesting to note that following the Wabash encounter Apache coach Herb Harrah called it a great game on the part of both teams and had nothing but praise for his own boys "courage". It was just a brus- ing ball game that all teams are going to encounter when they hit the tourney trail. And a team that can't cope with it isn't going too far. HICKS THIRD OBSERSDORiF, Ger.
