PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Wednesday Pec, 30 ,1964 Gary Roosevelt Still Unbeaten INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Unbeaten Gary Roosevelt, Indiana's top-ranked high school basketball team, kept its record clean Tuesday in the start of the Gary city tourney but one other previously unbeaten ' five suffered its first loss at Evansville. Evansville Rex Mundi ran its season record to 8-0 with an 85-53 victory over city foe Harrison in the championship game of the Evansville tourney. Paced by Earl Schneider's 30 points, ninth-ranked Rex Vundi pulled away after the first period to hand Harrison its first loss .after eight victories. Harrison's defeat left only eight major unbeaten teams in the state. Ehvood won its eighth in a row with a 70-58 victory over Alexandria in the finals of the Madison Heights tourney at Anderson. Gary Beasley hit.27 points for the eighth-ranked winners who didn't clinch the game until the final minute when they pulled away on free throws. Roosevelt had little trouble dumping Gary Wallace, 86-36, in the first round of the Gary tourney and will go against seventh-ranked Gary Froebel in one of this afternoon's semifinals. Froebel, beaten only by Roosevelt, downed Emerson in a first-round game Tuesday. The other semi-final at Gary will match Tolleston, 71-42 winner over Edison, against Wirt which downed Mann; 52-51, in the first round. Afternoon winners will play tonight for the title. Fifth-ranked East Chicago Washington won its own holiday tourney, beating LaPorte, 67-50. Fort Wayne Central overcame a 37-point performance by Tipton's Don Curnutt to win the championship of the Hammond tourney, 86-74. Tonight's finals at Lafayette will match once-beaten Lebanon against defending state champ Lafayette. Lebanon got 39 points from Rick Mount Tuesday night but still needed an overtime for an 82-81 first-round victory over Michigan City. Lafayette downed Greencastle, 77-74, in the other opening round game. In another close one, a 15-foot shot by sophomore John Kaiser with eight seconds left gave South Bend Adams a 60-5S victory over Mishawaka in the finals of the Mishawaka tourney. Bill Allen scored 32 points to lead Penn over South Bend St. Joseph's, 85-79, in the consolation game. Terre Haute Schulte, which suffered its only loss of the season to Spencer, got revenge Tuesday night with a close, 68-65, victory in the finals of the Florida State Defense Tough By JAMES G1LLESPY United Press International JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (UPI) —The defensive hope of Florida State University's Gator Bowl- bound Seminoles is wrapped up in .a bunch of hard-nosed linemen dubbed "The Seven Mag- nificents." The man who gave the Seminole forward defensive wall its name was Avery Sumner, a 227- pound tackle from Adel, Ga. Sumner showed up for fall practice with his head shaved. Other members of the line were quickly bald and Sumner named them for a movie that starred Yul Brynner. The name stuck and the seven played the entire season with shaved heads. The seven, and a backfield called "The (Forgotten Four," will make up the defense that head Coach Bill Peterson will build against the highly thought of ground game of the Oklahoma Sooners in the Gator Bowl here Jan. 2. The seven and the four produced one of the stingiest defenses turned out by football squads anywhere this year. Florida State's defense ranked fifth nationally, allowing an average of 181.1 yards a game, and was third in rushing defense, where The Magnificents permitted only 75 yards per- game. State allowed only 66 points in 10 games and completed the season in ninth place in defense against punt returns with only 98 yards on 20 kicks. The Seminoles will not go into the Gator Bowl with defense on their minds. Leading the attack will be lanky Steve Tensi'— the nation's tallest quarterback at 6-foot-5 — who completed 121 throws out of 204 tries for 1,683 yards. On the receiving end will be flankerback Fred Biletnikoff, who grabbed 57 tosses for 987 yards and 11 touchdowns. Peterson's pro-type offense will be geared to give the round-minded Sooners trouble. Van Buren tourney. Spencer suffered its second loss of the season. The losers had beaten Schulte by more than 20 points earlier in the season. In other tourney windups Tuesday, Fort Wayne Catholic beat South, 63-61, at Fort Wayne; Charlestown downed Clarksville Providence, 61-47, at Silver Creek; North Central beat Sullivan, 74-46, at Sullivan, and Wakarusa edged New Paris, 51-50, to win its own tourney. Hawks Win Under Guerin By United Press International Richie Guerin already has mastered "the first secret of successful coaching — put Bob Pettit back into the game. Guerin made his National Basketball Association coaching debut Tuesday' night and his St. Louis JJawks responded with a 122-104 victory over 4he San Francisco Warriors. The 32-year-old Guerin, who Currently is sidelined from his playing duties because of an injury, said after the game he "felt a little nervous but not tight." "I just put the .fellows in," he added. "I feel we have a team that can win our (Western) division." One of the fellows Guerin put in was Pettit, who had been out of action since Dec. 10 with a back - injury. Pettit, although not playing as much as usual, led the Hawks with 26 points. Wilt Chamberlain led all scorers with 35 points for San Francisco, which trailed from the opening basket.

By JACK CUDDY UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Ordering up a king-sized helping of football upsets on New Year's Day to accompany the holiday kings-ized headaches: Texas 10 Alabama 7, in the Orange Bowl at Miami, Fla.' Texas maintains its whammy over the six- point favorite Crimson Tide, who have yet to defeat the Longhorns in five meetings. Defense will prevail in this clash of the '3 and '4 national champs. Nebraska 24 Arkansas 21, in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas, Tex. •Both teams have offenses that will make this the most interesting game on the television marathon, but Nebraska will be hungry after its final- game loss to Oklahoma and will out-root the unbeaten Razorbacks, who are six-point betting choices. Orange Juiced Up Syracuse 20 Louisville State 7, in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans. The Orange offense will get the better of the Tigers' defense. Fullback Jim Nance and soph speedster (Floyd Little scored 25 TD's between them this year for Syracuse. Michigan 30 Oregon State 14, in the Rose Bowl at Pasadena, Calif. This one will go according to form for the Wolverines, who are a solid 12 point choice. Oregon State had trouble with other Big Ten foes, Northwestern and Indiana, weak sisters in the conference this season, and the West Coast team shouldn't be much of a match for the champs and quarterback Bob Timberlake. Saturday's, Upset Oklahoma 14 Florida State 7, in the Gator Bowl at Jacksonville, Fla. Florida State is favored by three points because of its "seven manificents" in the defensive line but the Jim Grisham-Lance Rentzel ground attack for Oklahoma is good enough to penetrate them for a couple of scors — if the Soon­ ers season-long penchant for fumbling doesn't continue. CAMPBELL GETS POST CINCINNATI {UPI) — Paul Campbell, 47, a scout for the Cincinnati Reds, has been named traveling secretary for the Reds organization. Campbell, who joined the Reds in 1959, succeeds Avery Robbins, who resigned to enter private business. Evansville No. 1 Second Time By CURT BLOCK UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Defending champion Evansville made a clean sweep of the United Press International small college basketball ratings today for the second successive week. The Purple Aces boast a sparkling 6-0 record, with all the victories coming against major college opposition, the latest victim being Massachusetts. Last week Coach Arad McCutchan's squad was credited with 35 first place votes and a maximum 350 points. It was the first perfect record in the history of the UPI small college ratings and they showed it was no fluke this week with a repeat performance. The ratings are based on games through Saturday, Dec. 26. Grambling (8-0) won a pair of games last week to tighten its grip on the runnerup spot. Fresno State trounced Nevada and rose from fourth to third. Pan American, idle since Dec 19, was up a notch to fourth while Southern Illinois, also out of action recently, slipped to fifth. Akron, Wittenberg, Carson Newman, Youngstown and Hofstra rounded • out the top 10 teams. The first four schools stuck to their positions of a week ago while Hofstra replaced North Dakota as No. 10. Evansville, the pre-season choice to defend its crown, has beaten everything in its path thus far and appears to have disposed of the, most difficult part of its campaign. The remaining portion of the schedule lists only one major college opponent (Butler) and just a handful of smaller schools who figure to provide any serious headaches.

Deffenbaugh Kokomo GL 9-9060 ON THE SIDELINES Three hundred and twenty- miles, roundtrip,' on top of a working day which started at 6 a.m. Monday proved too much for the old Hambone. Convinced that we'd'have been nothing but a "soup" bone if we'd tried it again last night, we stayed home and took in the finals via the airwaves. That return trip got us back to the Bowl-o-drome at 3:20. a.m. from Hammond and after two cups of coffee as black as we could get it, we got one hour of shuteye before starting over again Tuesday . . . and that hour was filled with fanciful visions of Lex Boyd tootin' a trumpet, Don Crouch beatin' a drum and an unidentified player gumming a mouth organ while ol Yogi (Berra) Barr raised undiluted hades wanting to know what all the cause for rejoicing was. Plenty There So those who want a first hand -account of the proceedings can question the '300 odd Tipton fans who made the trip and remained overnight for th6 championship game. We absorbed our impressions from the broadcast, and combined that with the box score and appropriate comments by coach Dick Barr for our roundup. 'Meanwhile, while the first night contest was not Tipton's best game of the season there were several facts emergd from it worthy of comment on. iFirst, Hammond is nobody's patsy. Coach Gunner Wyman has assembled himself a far better than average iballclub. No Quitters The most important feature of the final outcome was Tipton's proving for the first time this year that after building up and maintaining an early lead, only, to see it melt away and the other team move in front in the final quarter, the Devils have the "courage" to come back without panicking and pick up all the marbles. It is easy to win as a front runner when all the pressure is on the other club. They proved, again in the second game when most fans were ready to throw in the sponge that they can't be counted out until the final gun sounds. They couldn't score without the ball of course and picked up some tough personals trying to get it but any team that can whittle 12 a lead against as big and good a team as Fort Wayne Central can't be counted out before this year's tourney rolls around. Tried Their Best Coach Barr had no excuses and no alibis for his boys' showing. He felt, and justly, that they did their best and as long as boys are doing that they deserve nothing but a pat on the back. It was kind of confusing listening to the game and hearing "Moore does. . . " and "Moore does . . ." and wondering all the while whether the announcer was talking about Tipton's Bill Moore or Central's Marzie Moore, but otherwise, you can believe us, it was better than attempting that 320 mile drive again with the inherent, possi- bilitis of winding up in a roadside ditch. In Summation Now that the halfway point (practically) in the schedule has been reached, we think most fans will agree with us on one point. This is a good Tipton team but it just isn't quite the ball club that wore the Blue and White uniform a year ago when Dandy Dicic and Handsome Harvey were a part of it. But a school the size of Tipton just doesn't pick, up two such players two years in a row. . . for that matter there aren't many schools of any size which will. We do believe, however, that this team is equipped to go farther in the state tourney than last year's did. barring of course another such injury as that to which Tipton and Harmon fell victim last year. There is a lot of room for improvement on this year's team. The elimination of a few errors and the tightening of the defense. The fouls will or should take care of themselves. Some officials call 'em one way and some call 'em the other. Over the long run, Tipton will have as many called in their favor as against them. There are a few needless fouls committed but they can be ironed out. The present team has a belter bench—or should we say a bench that can be called on without any noticeable weaken- 1 BY HAM RIGG ing of the team. That alone should carry it further as regards tourney chances. Looking Ahead In the meantime, the Blue Devils have some mighty tough opponents coming up in which to sharpen their attack and defense. There will probably be another two or perhaps three losses on the schedule and there are definitely going to be some more victories. The Satans will have a winning year. What we'd like to see them concentrate on is the balance of the CIC schedule. The first toughie there will be Huntington, January 15 and the Vikes may not be as tough this year around as they were a year ago either, but they are ALWAYS a good ball club and will give the Tipton team all it can handle. So let's back the kids all we can and start building now for the CIC and the state tourney. I.U., Miami Champions In Toyrney Play 3* By MARTIN LADER UPI Sports Writer St. Joseph's claimed the prize scalp of the holiday basketball festivities today while Indiana, Davidson, Miami of Florida, .Penn State and Baylor settled JTor skimpier but still satisfying trophies. Unbeaten St. Joseph's, ranked 11th in the nation, upset second- ranked Wichita 76-69 Tuesday night to register its 10th straight victory and win the Quaker City Tournament at Philadelphia. The Hawks came through with an iron man effort as the starting five played the entire game. Sixth ranked Indiana finally solved an irritating Memphis State zone defense to rip the Tigers 91-68 and take the Memphis State Classic; 10th ranked Davidson easily outgunned Ohio University 81-63 in the. final of the Charlotte Invitational; Miami won the Hurricane Tournament with an 80-73 decision over Maryland as Rick Barry scored 34 points; Penn State nipped Detroit 75-73 for the Motor City championship and Baylor beat Clemson 68-59 to capture the Poinsettia Classic. UCLA Wins UCLA, the defending national champion, took a long step toward retgaining its 1963-64 prestige by trouncing third ranked Minnesota 93-77 in the semifinal round of the Los Angeles Classic. The largest basketball crowd in Southern California history, 14,861, saw .the fifth- ranked Bruins score 15 straight points in the first half to win their eighth game in a row after an opening loss and hand Minnesota its first setback in eight games. Utah won its 10th straight game by tonning Iowa 92-88 and will meet UCLA for the tournament championship tonight. Fourth-ranked San Francisco received a scare from San Jose State but emerged with a 60-57 triumph in the semifinal round of the' West Coast Athletic Conference tournament at San Jose, Calif. In the finals, the Dons will meet Santa Clara, a 75-71 victor over the University of Pacific. Top-ranked Michigan resumes action in the Holiday Festival in New York tonight in a semifinal against Princeton while the other semi -"airing sends St. John's against Cincinnati. Final Round Pairings Other final-round pairings in holiday tournaments, with Tuesday night's results listed, include: —Kansas (a 54-52 winner over Kansas State) vs. Colorado (6561 over Missouri) in the Big Eight Tournament. at Kansas City, Mo. Tennessee (70-63 over Oregon) vs. Oregon State (67-65 over Northwestern) in the Far West Classic at Portland, Ore. —DePaul (84-75 over Birgham Young) vs. Oklahoma City (9075 over Xavier of Cincinnati) in the All College tournament at Oklahoma City. —Vanderbilt (83-73 over Texas Tech) vs. Louisville (77-71 over Georgia Tech) in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans. —Texas (66-60 over Georgia) vs. Florida (82-65 over Wake Tourney Title From Tipton Tipton's Blue Devils probably battled harder Tuesday night than they have in any game this year but a second quarter in which they were outscored 27-11 was more than they could overcome and a big, rugged Fort Wayne Central team captured the championship of the Hammond Tourney 88-74. It was a wide open ball game after a first quarter in which the Tigers held an 18-15 lead but Fort Wayne controlled the boards and tore Tipton apart on fast breaks for a 27-11 edge. Central and Tipton played almost even through the 22-19 third quarter which ended 67-45. Ignited Rally Trailing by 22 points and sparked by some more fantastic shooting toy Don Curnutt, the Blue Devils showed once again as they did while trailing Hammond the night before, that they're never out of it— never quit, by chopping the Tiger lead to 10 points. In the meantime, however, three Satans departed via the whistle after picking up their fifth personal fouls and with rebounder Bill Moore and playmaker Dan Crouch and Jim Harmon on the sidelines the rally tapered off despite 15 points in that quarter by Curnutt. Balanced Team. As they did the night before, Fort Wayne showed great team balance putting five boys in double figures paced by Marzie Moore's 25. Curnutt's 37 points for the night and 61 for the two day tourney was good for individual honors while Crouch added 10 and Harmon 11 to round out Tipton's two-figure output. The Satans are idle now until a week from Friday when they travel to West Lafayette. Next home game is the visit here of Huntington in a Central Indiana Conference clash.
