Last night it was 6-1 Bobby~G»ll who dumped in 20 points to pace the predominantly junior squad. Gall had great help, however, from Cardy Gemma, who bagged 13 points and superbly defensed Guy Rodgers. The Owls' backeeart- scoVing ace didn't get a field goal 29 minutes and wound up with a job to Hal Lear, who hit for 28. The lead changed hands 11 times in the last 1 minutes. lJuke, ranked loin, was another major victim last night, although not unexpectedly. The Blue Devils were leveled by eighth-ranked Kentucky 81-76 as Jerry Bird fired a late' first-half Wildcat surge.

Loser Carter Doesn't Shed Any Tears By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN CHICAGO (M— It was a pleasure to walk into Jimmy Carter's dressing room at Chicago Stadium last night! He had just lost a close official decision to Cisco Andrade, 26, nifty little fighter from Compton, Calif., who has been beaten only twice in 36 bouts. Relaxed Most of the ringside sports writers st the nationally televised 10-rounder gave Carter the edge. The Associated Press card favored him 97-95. Carter, sitting relaxed on bench in his quarters, spoke like the champion he once was. Three times he has won the lightweight crown and three times he has losl it. "There's no sense getting mad you can't change a decision," he said quietly. "Andrade is a good fast boy. I've always been known as a slow starter. I thought I had him from the sixth on. 1 worked him over well in the fourth. When I went down in that round it was definitely a slip." In most cases, a .fighter who has dropped such a decision would be harping about it plenty. Carter took it like a gentleman. Best Fight Truman Gibson, secretary of the International Boxing Club, told Carter his 100th bout was one ol the best he ever fought and indicated he was entitled to a rematch. Despite his years In the ring and age he's going on 33),, Carter still showed sharp reflexes In his first scrap since failing to regain his title from Wallace Bud) Smith last Oct. 28. But Andrade was the official winner as Judge E. A. Frankel and Referee Joe White scored in his favor 95-94 and 96-95 respectively. Judge Lou CapparelU favored Carter 97-95.

They are Jerry Lumpe, who batted .301 at Birmingham and was the Southern ..Assns' all- star shortstop; Woody Held, who had 18 home runs and drove in 87 runs at Denver; and Tony Kubek, a fine looking prospect from Quincy, HI., who batted .334 and led the Three-Eye league in total hits. Kubek, only 20, is not on the Yankee rtster, but is held In high esteem by the Yankee front office . A well built lad, Kubek stands 6-3, walloped 34 doubles, and 14 homers and drove in 81 runs last year. The. other shortstop candidates Include Jerry Coleman, Billy Hunter. Billy- Martin,. Gil McDougald and of course, Rizzuto. Lumpe, 22, is the lad Charlie Dressen, Washington manager, insisted be included in a proposed deal with the Yankees last summer. Held, 23 has one of the finest arms ,in the business. Kubek, the dark horse of the field, is the youngster General Manager George Weiss told Casey Stengel not to include In any trade.

His batting average was only .275 but he walloped a league high of 36 home runs and drove' in 117 runs. He is only 22. Coates, a 6-4, 23-year-old right- hander, Is probably the best regarded among the five pitching newcomers.
