(UP) A West Virginia team that scored almost three points a minute ruled as favorite today in the wild scramble for the ninth annual Intercollegiate basketball championship.

The other games were more evenly matched. DeLong broke the individual scoring record for a single game with 22 field goals and 12 free throws. Bill Hall got 34 of Marshall college's 113 points to take runner-up honors. Both records that tumbled were set in 1942.

The N. I. T.'s committee, after examining the records of 1he eight teams, had the same idea and yesterday they made the mighty Wildcats, winners of 32 out of 34 games and defending champions, the top seed with West Virginia (18-1) second, Du-quesne (21-1) third, and North Carolina State (24-4) fourth. Seedings, however, haven't meant much in this court carnival and it wouldn't be too shocking if any of the other four, Brad- Baseball Schedule )ouble Nummli Indicate Uoutile-Headera. Spotlight on Five Games in Illinois Section Meets Well-Balanced Teams Are Matched in Opening Round Wednesday SPRINGFIELD, 111, (AP) Five games line up well-balanced combinations in downstate high school basketball sectionals opening tomorrow night. Fourteen of the 15 sectional tournaments, paving the way for the state finals at Champaign March 20-22, start tomorrow. The one at Moline starts Thursday. These five matches may well furnish more than their share of fireworks: Mt. Vernon vs. Pinckneyville at Mt. Vernon: This evenly matched tilt in the upper bracket throws together two quintets that each have lost seven games. Pinckney-ville's Panthers list Mt. Vernon among their 27 victims by a close two-point decision. Mt. Vernon, victorious in 25 games, looks to snap the 16 game winning streak of the Panthers. Flora vs. Lawrenceville at Flora: Lawrenceville (22-9) was successful In outpointing Flora's Wolves once this season but they couldn't repeat on Flora's home floor. Both teams fell before the mighty Paris Tigers but Flora (21-8) by a slighter eight point margin. Anna-Jonesboro vs. Murphys-boro at Carbondale: These two perennial southern favorites, matched in the lower bracket, split a pair of close contests in season competition. Anna-Jonesboro (24-7) Edged Murphysboro, 40-38, in January and the Red Devils came back with a 48-47 victory in February. Murphysboro has bowed seven times and won 18. Clinton vs. Springfield at Decatur: Clinton's Maroons took the Senators by six points early in the season but Springfield (20-7) can be counted on for trouble. The Senators have lost but two encounters in their last 16 tilts. Clinton has a record of 25 and 7. Mattoon vs. Pana at Charleston: This game features two quintets labeled as outstanding dark horses. Mattoon (19-6) and Pana (18-13) have numbered among common victims such high scoring outfits as Decatur, Shelbyville and Vandalia. They did not oppose each other in regular play. Faulty Timing Device Helps Bradley Quint Score 57-56 Triumph PEORIA, 111. (AP) A "faulty timing device had a hand in helping Bradley university defeat the hard-fighting ball-hawking Colorado College Tigers 57-56 last night. With 90 seconds showing on the clock to go, and Colorado college maintaining a 56-54 lead, the hands of the timepiece stuck. The official timer, Dr. Harold Gorseline, professor in Bradley's psychology department, said he was watching the floor to tab the time-out periods and did not notice the clock had stopped. Some observers said the clock was dead for nearly a minute during which play continued. It finally started again and the 90 seconds remaining on its dial were played out. Thus the game, according to estimates, lasted at least a minute too long. If the clock had continued to run, Colorado college, which had led ' from the start, undoubtedly would have won. In the last 40 seconds Ray Ramsey of Bradley dropped in a corner shot to give the Braves their 57-56 victory. ley (25-5). Utah (16-5), St. John's of Brooklyn (15-6) and Long Island (16-4), emerged the winner. The last two were named to the meet yesterday.

Indianapolis defeated the Toledo Jeeps last night, 55 to 49, at Toledo and moved out of a second place tie with the Sheboygan Redskins.

Rochester's Al Cervi scored 27 points as the first place Royals toppled Syracuse into fifth place in the eastern division.

Anderson, which was accepted last night as an tmtry in the ninth annual world's championship professional basketball tournament which begins on April 5 at the Chicago stadium, celebrated by leading Detroit all the way. Dave Latter and Bob Meyer, of the Gems with 15 points each, led the individual scoring. to "handle all the requests for tickets in recent years."

New lot Hawks Battle Gary Ingots For Benefit Proceeds Will Be Turned Over to Players of Pro Squad BLACKHAWKS GARY INGOTS iates F Somiak Rader , F Shimala men C Klein Hassett G Kramer Grenert G Jacobs Quad-city sports fans will have -a chance tonight to show the Blackhawk pro cagers their answer to the oft-repeated query: Do the quad-cities want professional basketball? At 8:30 o'clock Coach Nat Hickey's charges tangle with the Gary, Ind., Ingots, one of the nation's top independent clubs, in an exhibition contest. All proceeds from the game will go into a players' pool to be divided by the hoopsters by a vote among themselves. In the 7 p. m. prelim, Reynolds Engineering of Rock Island and the Quad-City Elites, fastest amateur combinations in the area, will offer the spectators one of the best-matched curtain-raisers sched-ed this season. General Manager Leo F. Ferris of the Blackhawks front office said this morning that Coach Nat ; Hickey will "go through his complete bag of court tricks" to pro-1 vide plenty of laughs during the game. Hickey, on the other hand, insisted that he would be "playing to win, since the Ingots are a tough and experienced pro five." Those who know the aggressive Irish mentor best, however, insist that an appeal from the crowd will induce him to perform. An inspection of the Gary roster shows that Hickey knows his opponents: they're a very fast quintet, led in scoring by Jim Jacobs, former Valparaiso university star, and Dick Klein, Northwestern graduate, and Mike Somiak, a Michigan alumnus.
