Coach Jimmy Fisher and his ten athletes, had plans to leave town tliis morning in automobiles at nine o'clock (At press time there was no change in plans.) Coach Fisher has not indicated the starting lineup as yet. There was a shakeup in the Leachville game Tuesday when Jimmy Brateher started in place of Billy Daniels. Although Brateher went scoreless he played a good game. Daniels counted eight points in that contest.

Last night's scheduled game between the B team and Dyess was cancelled because of the heavy, early-morning snowfall.

Today he named the top fiv in this order— Bill Russell of San 'Francisco, Sihugo Green of Duquesne, Tom Heinsohn of Holy Cross, Ron BhavUk of North Carolina State and Lennie Rosenbluth of North Carolina. All but Rosenbluth are seniors. TJnunal Stamina "I'd rat* Russell just a shade •head of Green," he said. "Russell is the best big man I've seen and h6 has unusual stamina for someone with his thin appearance. "But Green Is. the top back court man In the country in my opinion. He's capable of stepping into pro ball right now with any team in our league. "Heinsohn, who'll probably be the Boston Celtics' first territorial draft choice, has great potential. Shavlik is very fast for a big man and is fine defensively. Rosenbluth is just terrific and has definite pro possibilities." An, NBA team is given first crack at a college player whose school is within a 50-mile radius of the pro team's home grounds. Players outside of NBA territory go into a national draft at the end of the season with the last-place team having first choice. Hot Rod Not Ready Hertzberg claims that Bill Uhl, Dayton's seven - foot center, and Hot Rod Hundley, West Virginia's porlific scorer, are not quite ready for pro basketball's major league. Both are seniors. "Uhl is exceptionally fast for a man of his size." said Hertzberg. "But I don't think his reflexes are fast enough right now. He might have trouble defensively. "Hundley is as fine a ball handler as I've ever seen. Maybe another Bob Cousy. But Hundley is a clown and you have to be serious to make good in the NBA. He'd be better off just concentrat Ing on basketball." None of the top-ranked college teams saw action last night. In fact, the card was the slimmest of the season, partially because of a 76-62 triumph over Cornell Texas ASM took the lead in the first minute and remained in front to down Sam Houston State 75-46 And Morehead trampled Union 12270 in a eame between Kentucky schools.

Conference leader Arkansas (4-0) and runnerup Southern Methodist both are idle this weekend. If they are to remain contenders for the crown, the Rice Owls, who now have a 3-2 conference record, need a victory at Wico over the Baylor Bears, who with a 1-2 mark seek a win to pull themselves up to the .500 level.

Texas Chris Royce Smith Flattens Bailey, Osceola Semi-Finals Tonight OSCEOLA - The sparks continued to fly here last night in the second round of the annual Northeast Arkansas Golden Gloves Tournament as promising^ s ™ th "^ £ out Leachville's Dwayne Bailey and Jerry Spencer of Osceola TKO d Dan Sisco, who came in :rom Keiser. Another fine crowd sat in on the fireworks. Ringsiders consider Royce Smith (Keiser) to be one of the finest prospects the area has developed in a long time. He looked particularly sharp last night. And Jerry Spencer looked great in his second-round TKO over Dan Thursday, will also be trying hin the .500 bar. Defeats will virtually eliminate ny of the four teams for the con- erence crown but none will be orced into the cellar. The idle 'exas Longhorns, who have no 1 won a conference game this year nd whose coach, Thurman "slue 1 " lull, resigned Thursday, have t- irm grip on the subterranean pot. The Cadets had little trouble In olishing off Sam Houston State hey took the lead In the first min ite of play and were never in anger of losing it. Ken Hutto with 5 points led the Aggies while A Adams scored the same number the Bearkats. LOW BRIDGE—Everybody is up in the air as Bob Cousy, center, is fouled driving in for a shot unsuccessfully in Philadelphia^ Guarding the Boston Celtics' star are Neil Johnston, left, and Ernie Beck. It takes two to stop a slick shotm^ker like Cousy. Patty Berg One Ahead TAMPA, Fla., Ufl —Veteran Patty Berg he.ld a one-stroke lead over young Mickey Wright with the second round coming up today in the $5,000 Tampa Women's Open golf tournament. Popular Patty, Woman Athlete of The Year for 1955, clipped four strokes off par with a 71 and could have done better than that except for some erratic putting. Putting: also hurt Miss Wright, from San Diego, Calif. She lost a chance to tie for the lead by three- putting No. 18. High winds bothered most of the field of 121. Louise Suggs of Sea Island, Ga., co-favored with Miss Berg, took 80 for the tricky 6,307- yard Palma Ciea course and was well down the list. The only other players to match par 75 were Betsy Rawls of Spar tsnburg, S. C.. and Fay Crockei from Montevideo, Uruguay.
