Marquette Is Spilled As Louisville Continues Giving NIT Trouble By BD WILKS ** Hie Associated PreM The, gents who select the teams for the National Invitation Tournament may be on a steady diet of bicarb this week as college basketball schedules brew a stew that doesn't figure to set well. The NCAA Tournament Commit- *~ tee, however, can sit back and appraise a bevy of close conference races that should send well- tested champions into the final chase for the national titled Louisville (19-1) is the biggest NIT headache. The Cardinals, with some four-year men wbo aren't acceptable to the NCAA, should have the NIT licking its chops. But instead, they've been knocking the glitter from NIT entries and could keep it up this week. And that is not going to pack madison Square Garden next month. *" Another Tourney Team After' spilling NTT-bound Marquette, 76-65 Saturday, Louisville tonight meets NTT-bound Xavler of Ohio. Friday, the Cardinals run into NIT-bound Dayton again. The Day tops have lost one of 19— and Louisville 1 did it, 66-64. Memphis State (17-3), NiagaVa (15-5), Manhattan (12-5) and St. Francis of Brooklyn (16-0) also could make it a hectic week fo the NIT, Memphis State, ready and wail Ing for a tourney bid, plays. Dayton Wednesday. Niagara, In the sam situation, meets Seton Hall, an NIT entry, Thursday, And Manhattan which "eliminated" St. John' from the NIT picture last week challenges St. Francis, already picked by the NIT, tomorrow. St. Francis, with San Francisco the only major unbeatens left also plays Brooklyn ,College Wednesday and St. Joseph's (Pa, Saturday. San Francisco, set to defend its NCAA title, can stretch its all-time major college winning streak to 46 games by beating San Jose State tomorrow and St Mary's (Calif.) Friday. Oklahoma City (16-4), Temple (17-1) and Holy Cross (17-3) also are safe bets to wind up in postseason tournaments. Oklahoma City, which plays Drake tonight, leans to the NCAA. Holy Cross, playing Notre Dame tonight after being upset by Dartmouth 83-6' Saturday, is partial to the NIT Temple, meeting La Salle Wednesday, could go either way, but probably is headed for the NCAA.
