MUNCIE EVENING PRESS, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1955 PACE THIRTEEN Rupp Calls for Th ree Changes In Court Rules By ROBERT GLASS CHICAGO (INS) Head basket ball Coach Adolph Rupp of the University of Kentucky has fired a broadside into present day basketball rules and requested three major changes. The Wildcat basketball wizard announced yesterday that he has sent three proposals to the National Association of Basketball Coaches recommending "changes that are necessary for the very life of the game." The Kentucky coach made the statement from Lexington, Ky., by long distance telephone to the Chicago Basketball Writers Association. Rupp attacked the present bonus rule which gives a team an extra shot if it makes the first one and particularly if the team with the ball happens to be called on. a fouL Rupp proposed: 1. WIIEN A TEAM on defense is guilty of a foul against an offensive man in the act of shooting, the player should be given two free throws. 2. All other defensive fouls only would allow one free throw. 3. If an offensive player commits a foul, the defensive team would get the ball out of bounds. This would eliminate receiving a charity shot and a possible "bonus" free throw. The veteran coach explained if his proposals were adopted, "it could lengthen the game to four- 12-minute quarters instead of two 20-minute halves." This, Rupp said, would give the fans a real competitive game instead of a free throw contest. This year's Kentucky squad was called one that has had "to fight every inch of the way." Rupp said that his biggest job this season was trying to teach his squad coordination. RUPP DECLARED that the loss of star guard Linville Puckett "has improved the morale of the team tremendously." He added that his entire squad of 13 players have taken it upon themselves personally to play inspired ball to make up for Puckett's leaving the team. The Wildcat boss explained that he "tossed Puckett off the team because he repeatedly broke training rules.". Rupp said the entire picture of the Southeast Conference was 'changing" because of the all- around general improvement in all the teams. He added that "Kentucky is fighting for its very life because of the two losses inflicted by an inspired Georgia Tech quintet." Head Coach Ray Meyer, whose De Paul team hosts Kentucky at the Chicago Stadium Saturday night, recalled that "the Wildcats ruined us when we played down there in January. We played them two nights after they were beaten by Georgia Tech and we were an nihilated, 83 to 59. JLEYER DECLARED that his biggest job of trying to stop Ken tucky over the years has been with rebounding. He added: "If we can control the boards, then we can beat Kentucky. When we played in Lexington last month, their center Bob Burrow was a 'beast on the boards' and we were unable to grab one offensive rebound in the second half." The De Paul coach called the 1955 Kentucky squad "a completely different team than ever has taken the floor." Meyer pointed out that there ai no stars on Kentucky this year but said "they all work together and help each other out in every situation." National Big Car Champ Entered in Speedway Classic INDIANAPOLIS (JP) Jimmy Bryan of Phoenix, Ariz., AAA national big car auto racing cham pion last year, was named today to drive a new Dean Van Lines Spe cial in the Indianapolis 500-mile race May 30.
