THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, March 90, IMS Eight Win Cyclone Letters; Three On All-EKL Teams By CONRAD DOWNING With the 1963 basketball season resting peacefully in the minds of most folks, Ottawa High Cyclone coach H. K. Stevens revived it by announcing the basketball lettermen. Five seniors, two juniors and "a sophomore drew monograms for their efforts, as did two team managers. Coach Stevens praised the efforts of his squad during the past year and was high on his lettermen. Roy Dunn, Rick Winchester, Harry Morton, Ben Park and Roger Ferguson were the seniors earning letters for the year. Eddie Davidson, and Jim Lewis were the junior recipients while Ronnie Mendel! represented the sophomores with his first award. Roger Addock and Wayne Wiggins were the team managers lettered. In a poll taken of the Eastern Kansas League coaches, league champion Ottawa grabbed two first team berths on the EKL Allstar team. Harry Morton and Roy Dunn rated the plaudits of the league coaches to head the list of outstanding players. Morton, the Reds 6-6 center, led the league in scoring with a 16.9 average and had help from Dunn, who clipped off a 12.7 average. Another teammate, Mendell, was selected to a second team position as the outstanding sophomore, the only first year man so honored. Mendel! hit for a 12.7 average. League rules prohibit the East Kansas League coaches from casting ballots for a top team, bu a verbal poll was allowed. The ^opinions of the coaches former the foundation for the selections Phil LaHue, Rosedale's top clutch player, drew a first team slot as he sank league opponents four times with only seconds show- Jing on the clock to give the Wildcats a third place finish in the •EKL. ; Argentine's Richard Mabion pro'•vided part of the height of the all-star quintet as the 6-2 center was a stalwart for the Mustangs during the season. The other member of the top five was Turner's Don Pankey, a boy that •shot the Ottawans full of holes in the crucial stages of the EKL season. Pankey had his best nights against the Cyclones and carried the second best average .in the EKL to rate high on the list of shooters. • Selected With Ronnie Mendell to 'the second team were Jim Doyle, f Argentine; Wayne McDonald and : Clayton McGee, Bonner Springs, • and Jim Tinsley, Turner.

(AP) Despite stormy objections by his advisor, heavyweight champion Sonny Liston must come back from Chicago Friday for an official examination to determine whether he is unable to fight Floyd Patterson. The Miami Beach Boxing Commission ordered the champion's return after a hearing Tuesday night in which Liston's Miami physician, Dr. Duke Baird, said he had no conclusive evidence that Liston had torn the cartilage in his left knee. Jack Nilon, Liston's advisor, protested the decision bitterly, but failed to sway chairman Fred Aaronson and other commissioners. Liston took off suddenly for his home in Chicago, after weeks of controversy and conflicting statements over his knee and the state of his health. Nilon requested Tuesday night's hearing and asked for an indefinite postponement of the fight with Patterson, now scheduled for April 10 after a postponement from April 4. "I tried to cover the injury up," Nilon said. "When Liston got on that plane for Chicago, he weighed 235. If there is an operation, it will be eight weeks before he can start training again. Then it will take several months to get him in shape. There is no way of saying when he can fight again." Liston weighed 214 when he knocked out Patterson in the first round in Chicago last September. Dr. Baird said that when Liston first went to him, there was a swelling of the knee joint, indicating a strain on the ligaments. 'The injury responded well to ligament treatment and I thought it would be all right for him to resume training," the doctor said.

For Providence's Joe Mullaney, the Friars' victory was another in a long line of heart-stopping scramblers. The two teams posted quarterfinal triumphs in the 26th National Invitation Tournament Tuesday night, Marquette blazing past St. Louis 84-49 and Providence counter rallying for a 106-96 decision over Miami of Florida. Marquette and Providence square off in the opening game of Thursday night's semifinal doubleheader at Madison Square Garden, preceding a match between Canisius and Villanova. Hickey, involved with St. Louis Coach John Benington in a feud that has resulted in a breach of basketball relations between their two schools, watched contentedly as his veteran Warrior squad thoroughly outclassed the Billi- kens. Hustle, speed and a 51 per cent shooting average made it a Marquette romp. Hickey, who has accused St. Louis of luring away a player committed to Marquette and vows he will never again play a Benington team—"unless we're paired off in a tournament"—refused to dwell on the controversy after the game. To Honor Alex Croza LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)-Alex Groza, who came off the shelf of dishonor in basketball, will be honored tonight along with the Bellarmine College team that he directed to a winning season. Groza, 36, was named coach of the year in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference by a vote of league coaches Tuesday. Groza, former All-America at the University of Kentucky, became Bellarmine coach in 1959-60. The team compiled a 20-7 record this season and played in an MCAA college division regional tournament. For Groza, the road back be»an 11 years ago, after he and :wo ex-Kentucky teammates were >iven suspended sentences by a New York judge for conspiring to shave points. All were banned from basketball for three years Groza got his second chance at Bellarmine. "At first, I felt like crawling on a shelf and hiding," he said "Finally, I decided I couldn't hide any more. People knew. me. They had to begin taking me for what I am and not what I had been. "I've done 10 years of pen- nance. People are really forgiving."

In 1960 the Orioles battled the New York Yankees nip and tuck before losing out for the American League pennant. They were in first place on Sept. 9 and on Sept 15 were still virtually tied for the top with an 83-58 record to 82-57 for the Yanks. Then came a disastrous series with the Yanks and the Orioles finished second, 8 games behind with an 89-65 record. The Orioles slipped to a third's place finish in 1961, 14 games back of the Yankees, and last year dropped to seventh place, 19 games out of first. Now with Luis Aparicio, Al Smith and Pete Ward obtained in an off-season trade with the Chi- cago White Sox, a sharp reversal seems evident It was a triple by shortstop Aparicio that started the Orioles on the way to their 10th straight vicory Tuesday, 4-3 over the White Sox at Sarasota. It triggered a 3-run first inning and the Sox never caught up. The world champion Yankees continue! at the bottom of the AL standings with a 3-8 mark. They rapped out 15 hits but nevertheless lost to Kansas City 9-5 at Bradenton, Al Kaline's four hits and the pitching of Hank Aguirre led the Detroit Tigers to their fifth straight triumph, 8-3 over the Los Angeles Dodgers at Lakeland. Aguirre worked six innings and has not yielded an earned run in 13 innings. Before the game the Tigers announced that pitcher Frank Lary had signed his contract. Cleveland smashed out 18 hits and crushed Houston, the Nation- al League exhibition leader, 134 at Tucson. Cincinnati helped by John Edwards' 2-run homer, hipped Minnesota 5-4 at Orlando and Norm Larker's ninth - inning single drove in the winning run for Milwaukee as the Braves edged Pittsburgh 7-6 at Fort Myers. Lee Thomas homered and drove in another run with a single to lead the Los Angeles Angels to t 5-1 victory over Boston at Palm Springs, Calif. Pitching dominated the other games in which the Chicago Cubs defeated San Francisco 3-2 at Mesa and St. Louis whipped the New York Mets 7-3 at St. Petersburg. Four Cub pitchers fanned 15 Giant batters, seven of them by southpaw Dick Ellworth in the first three innings. Another left-hander, Curt Simmons of the Cardinals, twirled 5 hitless innings against the Mets, then yiellded two scratched singles before finishing his 6-inning stint Dodds Gets KSU / Track Coach Job MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Deloss Dodds, who finished an outstanding college track career at Kansas State only four years ago, has been named head track coach at K-State, succeeding Ward Haylett. Haylett, 65, was K-State' first full-time track coach. He will step down June 30 after 35 years as head coach. Dodds, 25, now is assistant track coach and ticket manager. He still holds the varsity 440-yard record of 46.9, set in 1959. He won the Big Eight 440 crown at 47.4 the same year and was clocked in 45.9 in anchoring K-State to a school record of 3:10 in the mile relay at the Drake Relays. Dodds was clocked at 46.3 in the National AAU meet in 1960. In 1959 he was on a United States troupe which toured Finland and Sweden. Haylett said Dodds is "absolutely dedicated" to track, has shown fine leadership ability and is interested in his boys. Haylett added: "In his first year as head coach he will have the finest group of 440 men off the freshman team since he himself was a freshman. This will be right down his line " Dodds, a graduate of Riley, Kan., high school, came to K- State on a football scholarship but a leg injury prevented him from playing. Then a track season in which his times improved rapidly turned him to track. Haylett, a former Olympic and Pan American coach, has been in the coaching field for 46 years.

(AP)-Coach Forrest Twogood of Southern California, a fellow who should know, says the Beavers of Oregon State won't be one bit out of place in the company of collegiate basketball's big three—Cincinnati, Duke and Chicago Loyola — hi the NCAA championships this week* end. "This is a real good, strong, sound team," Twogood said as he and the rest of Derbytown looked ahead to Friday's semifinals at massive Freedom Hall. "Mel Counts, their 7-foot boy, has come along wonderfully; Terry Baker is a great team leader and a fine player; Steve Pauly it a strong boy who can shoot the eyes out of the basket, and those three sophomores — Jim Kraus, Frank Peters and Jim Jarvis— get the job done. "Slats Gill is a wonderful coach and has really shaped up the team. I saw that game Saturday night against Arizona State and the way Oregon State handled them was remarkable." Oregon State, with a 22-7 record, spilled fourth-ranked Arizona State 83-65 in the final of the Far West regional at Provo, Utah, t« qualify for the national semifinals Friday along with Cincinnati, Duke and Loyola, the teams ranked 1-2-3 in the final Associated Press poll.
