PAGE 4' ON THE SIDELINES By HAM RICC Normally, one wouldn't expect high school youngsters to "run out ol gas" in tile second quarter of a ball game, but in this instance we're inclined to agree with coach Earr that is what happened Friday night to the Blue Devils in the Wabash, gym. Some of the kids have admitted .they suddenly felt "flat on their feet" midway of the second ^quarter. And it's not that they were out of condition. Four games in eight days is a lot of basketball, particularly when all four of them are on .the road. And to top it olf, the kids had one of their hardest practices of the season Thursday afternoon .when the starting five went at full speed, alternating without stop against the second, third and fourth fives. Kui now, with a full week-end of rest and only one game remaining on the schedule, they should i>e at their best Friday evening when they close .their regular schedule against Monticello, here jn Uie Tipton gym. Monticello Good The tall Tiogans from Monticello ;ire currently 14-3 on the season and can be counted on to give the Blue Devils all they can handle. Due to the .Monti's scheduling only seven conference games in this, its last year in the C1C, coach Maui ry Gonunight's crew is not eligible lor the conference crown, but games wiUrQlonticello count for ail other C1C teams and a victory for Tipton would enable the Blue Devils to finish out the-season of 4-4 in the conference. It would also give them a 12-8 record for the yjar, a better record than any Tipton team extending back .through at least the 1955-5G season. Tipton records back through .that date follow: l955-5Gwon 10, lost 11. 1956-57 won 10, lost 10. ' 1957-5S won 1, lost 19. 1958-59 won 11, lost 9. 1939-GO won 9, lost 11. ' 1960-61 won 4, lost 16. At present these Blue Devils are 11-8, are sure of no. worse .than an 11-9 season which would equal their best in at leas,t seven years, and can surpass that mark with a victory Friday night. In this, the first year of the new Tipton high school, it has been encouraging to see the boys develop Buckeyes After Big Ten Record CHICAGO (UPI) — An all-time streaks and the ninth consecutive league rival of the season were expected to fall tonight before Ohio State's bristling basketball machine. The Buckeyes meet Michigan State at East Lansing, Mich., as lopsided favorites in their rush toward a third consecutive conference crown. The Buckeyes built their commanding Big Ten record to 8-0 with Saturday night's 91-66 conquest of Minnesota and tied a league record of 23 victories in a row, a streak previously achieved by Wisconsin in 1912-1913. Jerry Lucas paced the league- .leaders with 34 points and set a vastly improved team over that | conference mark for accuracy by ' THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE- as they have. 'Already they have bettered the record we expected of them, a 10-10 season. Lefs Fill The Gym -The closest the Tipton gym has come to 'being filled was the night Elwood called here and edged the Devils by three points. Elwood of course brought a big crowd. Monticello, oue to the oistance involved for its team to travel, is not going to bring anything like such a crowd. We would like to see an "Appreciation Night" for these Devils Friday night. We hope ALL local sports fans will turn out for .tbis onea ,dn root the Blue Devils on to their best season i nreeen-t years. The kids have worked hard and shown steady improvement. It is a MON.

We have no question in our mind that it is going to be an even better ball club next year, but in the meantime, with the Sectional fast approaching, the boys can use some encouragement. Lets get all friends together, make up parties to buy tickets and see that the gym is as close to sold out •t'riiiay night as we local fans can make it. There may be a few surprises at the game and we're sure that none of the real' basketball fans will want to miss it (nuff said!). Cheer The Players While we're at it, another suggestion we'd like to make to the tans and to the cheer leaders and yell block. All season long we've watched the opposition cheer when one of their boys is taken out of the game after having enjoyed a big night. At Noblesvme las.i week wiien their boys were removed in the final quarter they got a big hand from their fans. The same thing happaned at Wabash last Friday when Stan Bahler and Diiker left the game. Of course Tipton was hnndicapped at Wabash because the because the local crowd as limited by bad weather and travel conditions, but when Billy Moore left the game in .the B-team cbnLest after probably his finest performance of the year, it would have been nice to see some applause for the Tipton freshman. That is just one example. There have been many others. Everyone of .these varsity and B-teamers have come up with some outstanding exhibitions at one time­ other during the season. When it tomes down to the waning moments of the game Friday and any cf the Blue Devils happen to be removed, let's show 'em we appreciate their game, win or lose, with a real hand .that will let them know we're behind them, solidly in the approaching Sectional. Sectional Tickets By mid week, we should have details on .the distribution of Sectional tickets. Due to the dropping of Sharpsville and Windfall from the Carmel Sectional, and an increased student body enrollment at Tipton, there should be more tickets available for Tipton fans this season than they had last year. That niformation will be released shortly Iby Charles Edwards, T.H.S. athletic director. First Sectional seats of course go to holders of season tickets. hitting 14 of 15 field goal shots Purdue's Willie Merriweather bagged 11 of 12 from the field in 1959. Terry Dischinger of Purdue also eclipsed an old scoring mark when he led the Boilermakers with 47 points in a 105-93 victory over Indiana. It upped Dischinger's three - year total to 1067 points, surpassing the career total of Ohio State's Paul Ebert (1952-53-54) w h o until Saturday night was the league's second best scorer with 107 points. • In other action on tonight's four-game card, Northwestern is at Illinois, Wisconsin at Indiana I and Iowa at Purdue. Wisconsin bounced back from last week's upset loss to, defeat Michigan State Saturday, 77-72, and remain 1*5 games behind Ohio State. Ken Siebel led the Badgers with 23 points. Illinois scored its last 11 points from the free throw line to beat Iowa, 91-81. It was the third straight for the Illini and their fifth victory in seven conference tests. -' . Northwestern won its second game in eight league starts Saturday and moved- up from last to eighth place with an easy 84-66 triumph over Michigan.

Crll6 ing they wouldn't miss him if he stayed away for a whole year. Palmer won his second" straight tournament Sunday when he captured the $35,000 Phoenix Open and successfully defended the title he won here last year. "I admit that I kinda like this city," said Palmer after the smashing victory in which he vanquished the foes by a record- shattering 1 stroke margin. "I broke in on the tour here nine years ago and it has been a wonderful nine years." He plans to rest in Florida until March 1, when he must go to 250 552625 i B aton Rouge, La., to defend anoth- .222 521 785 J er one °* n ' s numerous crowns. The 12 strokes by which he smothered the great field of pros, was the largest margin of victory since Gene Littler walloped the Tournament of Champions group by 13 shots in 1955. The victory was worth $5,300 to him .and brought his money earn: ings for 19S2 to $12,425. Only Littler tops him with $14,186.66 to his credit. Palmer credited his trusty driver for piling up the big advantage over' the other pros. He changed the brand of ball he was using and claimed that he got an extra 20 yards of fthe tee. However, the other pros believe it is all in the mind—although a half dozen followed him in the switch. must admit .that much satisfaction with some of my one-iron shots." Palmer led this tournament from start to finish; He went into the final round with a five-stroke advantage—and beat every one of the. challenging pros by at least seven shots. He fired a fine five-under-par 66 on the final round, with the last nine holes being played in a driving rain. For the tournament he had rounds of 64-68-71-66—269. He had six birdies and a single bogey Sunday. j There was a four-way tie for second place, each with 81 totals, featuring Bob McCallister, Claremont, Calif.; Jack Nicklaus; the national amateur champion, j Tucson, Ariz.; Bill Casper, Apple Valley, Calif.; and Don Fairfield, Champaign, 111. Each man collected $2,300 for this effort, For Nicklaus, it was his biggest prize money since turning pro and joining the tour the first of the! year. Another four men deadlocked at 282, tying for fifth: Bill Collins, Miami, Fla.; Dave Mart, Sun City, Ariz.; Dave Hill, Demrer, Colo,, and Fred Hawkins, El Paso, Tex. Each collected $1,350. Leading money-winner Littler, the pre-tournament co- favorite with Palmer, slipped far back," finishing in a tie for 35th place and earning only $136.67. '-"mm**.
