MUNCIE STAR, MONDAY, MARCH 18, 1957 After the Ball Good Year for Cards, 'Cats?-You Was! By Bob Barnet "IT'S ALL OVER NOW, so far as Muncie basketball -teams are concerned, and, this being an admittedly victory-hungry community, there will be those who will scan the wrong side of the picture and make much of the things the Ball State Cardinals and Central Bearcats didn't do. - Obviously such a negative approacft is unfair, even though all of us would have been happy to see Ball State win the NAIA championship and the Bearcats win an unprecedented fifth state prep crown. It just wasn't in the book for either team, but when one inspects the rec nprr.pivps that hntH rr.mTMl.pfl fine records and coaches Jim Hinga and Jay McCreary turned in extra fine coaching performances. . The Ball Staters DID win the NAIA district playoff in their first year of competition as a member school, DID win a handy victory over Troy, Ala., State, and DID finish the' year with a record of 19 victories and eight defeats, one of the best marks in school history. They also finished second in a tough conference. Muncie Central DID finish second in the North Central Conference, DID win its way to the Sweet Sixteen in a field of more than 700, and DID finish with a record of 21 victories and only six defeats in the toughest of competition. - To accomplish those things players and coaches just had to be good and they were good. Successful seasons? You bet they were for both schools and for both coaches. THEY LOST TO GOOD ONES The two local teams were taken out of tournament competition by worthwhile opponents, which always softens the pain. Texas Southern was one of the NAIA favorites from the start, although the towering Texans, according to Ball State players who stayed over to see it, were unable to get anything done against Pacific Lutheran in the game following their triumph over the Cardinals. Those who follow the high school sport don'$ need to be told that the Bearcats were taken out by a good one, even though the South-port gang, so great in the afternoon, was away to a standing start against Attucks and was behind, 12-0, before it finally started playing ball. The Marion County Cardinals hit eight of their first 16 shots against the Bearcats but missed 14 in a row before hitting a field goal against Attucks in the night game. It was the same old proposition of every opponent being "up" for the Bearcats. That's what comes when you have won the state championship four times, when you have been in the Sweet Sixteen 20 times, and when you have compiled, through the years, a won-lost record few Hoosier teams, perhaps none, can equal. Everybody wants a crack at the champ, and Muncie Central, even though its last title was bagged five years ago, still is a prime target for all Hoosier prep coaches and players. It's a compliment, too. Nobody gets much kick out of beating a perpetual loser, and Muncie Central is anything but that HINGA, McCREARY, TO BUILD As for next year both coaches will lose heavily by graduation and both will face rebuilding jobs. Hinga will lose his entire front line of Wayne Van Sickle, Tom Dobbs, and Jim Harris, a trio that probably was one of the best in school history. McCreary's losses will include four of the five who did most of the playing against Southport Dean Campbell, George Burks, Ted Ster rett, and Henry Johnson, along with reserves Dave Satterfield and Bill O'Neal. The Bearcats next year will be smaller than at any time since 1952, with Dave Studebaker, now a sophomore, to be the tallest varsityman at 6-3. It may even be necessary for the Bearcat pilot to go to a zone defense, although he has no love for that formation. McCreary makes it plain that young ball players will be given every opportunity to show their ability and he points out that the team Is likely to suffer setbacks while construction work is under way. Hinga will dip Into the roster of a good Ball State freshman team and McCreary will promote players who were with the Bearkittens this year if they prove they belong with the varsity. THE GUY'S AN EXPERT And while we are on the subject of good coaching performances, this sideliner wishes to tip his hat to Ray Crowe, who has qualified an Attucks team in the final four fcr the third successive year. Ray's performance is an especially brilliant one because he just doesn't have the horses this year to match the great teams of the past two seasons. This reporter had not seen the Flying Tigers until the Semistate but would bet his battered typewriter that the current Attucks array couldn't possibly have kept pace with the Tigers teams of the past two years .were it possible to match them. Crowe has a superlative campaigner in Albert Maxey and two good ones in Edgar Searcy and Laverne Benson. The others are good make no mistake, but there is no Oscar Robertson or Bill Brown among them. Ray may be able to take this team all the way, but with such powerhouses as Terre Haute Gerstmeyer, South Bend Central, and Lafayette ready to dispute the passage a third successive Attacks w in would make Crowe more than a coach. He would be a magician! The gentlemanly Indianapolis instructor has done a marvelous job already ana shouldn t be expected to perform miracles.

(Marion). 1 Tech of Indianapolis, unbeaten! champion of the North Central conference, placed two stars on the all-NCC first team in tie balloting by league sports writers and radio broadcasters. Eddie Hanncn, a junior, and Henry Woods, a senior, were recognized for their clutch performances in bringing Tech's first basketball championship since 1932. This potent 1-2 combination- nailed down the guard positions. Logansport's 6-5 pivoi-operator Ron Jones, also a junior, was named center on the first team, ahead of Muncie's Ted Sterrett, who tied Jones for the conference individual scoring crown. Larry Moudy played center for Frankfort, but was shifted to forward for the all-NCC purposes. The other first-team choice was Dick Persinger, steady Marion performer. " Jones and Hannon received the most votes, with Woods a close second. Marion players dominated the second team since both Charley Clark and Dave Huffman were selected. Other selections in eluded Lucius Teague, Anderson's floor leader and Ray Pavy, New Castle's sensational sophomore Balloting for coach of the year honors ended in a tie between Tech's Charley Maas and New Castle's Randall Lawson. Maas was feted for his title-winning unit, while Lawson was recognized for elevating New Castle from last to fourth place, in a singl season. Gerstmeyer V Offensive Record Best Black Cats' Average Is 73.5 Points By KURT FREUDENTHAL United Presi Eport Writer INDIANAPOLIS (UP) - It's three-to-one against Terre Haute Gerstmeyer winning its first Indiana high school basketball tourney championship Saturday, but the Black Cats take the best offensive record into the four-team "charmed circle." Coach Howard Sharpe's quintet, with a nifty 32-i record, is coast ing along at a 73.5 point per game clip in eight tourney games the only survivor to exceed the 70-point mark. Undefeated South Bend Central carries a 66.6 average into its game with Lafayette, which averages 66.1. Defending state champion Indianapolis Attucks is not far behind at 64.6. They are closely bunched on defense, too. Lafayette has held seven foes to an average of 45.2 points. Gerstmeyer is the most liberal, at 54.3. And each team has an average winning margin of at least 18.3 points. No Fieldhouse Strangers There will be no strangers at Butler Fieldhouse. The South Benders hold two season victories over Lafayette. Gerstmeyer beat Attucks by six points in their season opener at Terre Haute last November 24. Attucks, hard after its third straight championship to tie the fabulous Franklin "Wonder five" of the "roaring twenties," whipped both Gerstmeyer and Lafayette in last years "Fieldhouse Four" showdown. Saturday's results left no doubt any one of them is capable of racking up two more decisions to cut down the nets. Lafayette, a two-time state champ but beaten by Gary Roosevelt during the sea son, played a smart possession game to edge the Panthers, 50-48. Coalmon Nears Record South Bend made it 28 straight by shaking off surprising Nobles-ville, 75-62, as John Coalmon pumped in a record 43 points at Ft.' Wayne. He pot 30 against Ft Wayne South in the after noon, and his 73-point total is just 33 shy of the final four-game rec ord of 106 by Attacks' Oscar Rob ertson last year. uerstmeyer downed scrappy Jasper at Evansville, 75-66, and Attucks rolled over Southport, 60- 50, to advance to the "State." Jasper upset Evansville Lincoln in double overtime, 69-67; South- port derailed Muncie Central, 71-54, and Noblesville upended Marion, 57-55, in the afternoon. But the name teams came through at night, making this one of the toughest state finals in its 47-year history. Albert Maxey of Attucks was-the second best semi-state shooter with 52 points. Jody Giesler of Jasper and Jess Blackwell of Southport each canned 45. How ard Dardeen topped Gerstmeyer with 43. Lafayette's best two-game shooter was Bob Perigo with 31.

In other matches Pancho Gon zales, world professional cham- .a T-X " pion, will meet Aussie uavis cup veteran Ken Rosewall in singles and Gonzales and Segura will op pose Pails and Rosewall in a dou bles match. The program, marking the sec ond visit of Jack Kramer's pro fessional troupe to Muncie, will be sponsored by the Ball State B" Club. Tickets are on sale at Retz Sporting Goods Store, Kirks Sporting Goods Store, and Gad- bury's Sporting Goods Store. They will also be on sale at the door at Ball Gym. The bandy-legged Segura, who beat Rex Hartwig of Australia in singles match here a year ago, won many admirers because of his ability to cover the court despite his lack of size. The Ecuador stylist is only 5-8 and weighs but 148, but his two-handed shots pack the authority of a real. pro. Segura turned pro in 1947 after an illustrious amateur career that included three U.S. intercollegiate titles. He was ranked No. 3 nationally on two occasions. He joined Kramer, Pails, and Bobby Riggs for the 1947 tour and gave all three -all they could handle. He played Frank Parker in the 1949-50 tour and overwhelmed him completely. He has been active since as a professional and during the 1956 tour, of which the stop at Ball Gynasium was a part, he whipped Hartwig, 56 matches to 22. He was U.S. Professional champion in 1950 and 1952 and was runnerup in 1951, 1955, and 1956. In February of this year he won the big AMPOL tourney in Sydney. Australia, beating Hartwig, Gonzales, and Frank Sedgman inl successive matches. IHSAA Has No Tickets for Finals INDIANAPOLIS tB- The Indi ana High School Athletic Assn. Sunday pleaded with basketball fans not to ask the IHSAA offices here for tickets to next Saturday's state finals. There just are none. "There will be absolutely no use to call here or write here for tickets," said Commissioner L. V. Phillips. Phillips added there wouldn't be much point in asking the four schools participating in the wind- up for tickets since "they don't have one-tenth enough." Representatives of the four finalists will receive 3,000 tickets, 750 each, at IHSAA headquarters in downtown Indianapolis Monday morning. The other 12 schools that reached the semistate stage of the tourney will receive 25 tickets each by mail. Earlier, more than 10,000 tickets were distributed by quota to all high schools in the state. Tickets for officials and press, radio and television coverage complete the distribution.

It was only a few years ago that Owner-Coach Abe Saperstein of the Globetrotters, passing through Portland, Ore., attended a basketball game involving the University of Portland. The spectacular play of Johnson, a star of that school's team, caught the fancy of Saperstein and he made a mental vow then and there that one day Andy would be wearing Globetrotter togs. In a conversation with the six foot six inch 215-pounder after the game, he learned that this also was an ambition of the youth.
