THURSDAY, FEBRUARY », 1956 _BLYTHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Strange Hardwood Happenings Last Night Princeton, Yale Struggle Through Five Overtimes By ED WILKS The Associated Press The trials and tribulations of postseason engagements are beginning to show in college basketball with some coaches putting possible tournament tactics to competitive tests.' Taps Gallagher of Niagara, for Instance, deployed his NTT-bound Eagles In a zone defense in the second half while defeating Syracuse 86-80 last night. It was the lirst time in 20 years of coaching that Gallagher had resorted to the zone. And Fred schaus, in — - _ •'year as coach and readying West Virginia for its title defense in the Southern Conference tournament next Tfeek, sent the Mouiv taineers into a full-court press right off the bat for the first time this season in a 97-88 decision over William & Mary. Hot Rod Ajain Niagara had a lour-point lead at the half, but Syracuse .which had beaten the Eagles earlier, gained an 80 - all deadlock with 1:13 left in the game. Then Alex Ellis, one of Niagara's sophomore stars, tapped in a rebound and. the stalling Eagles eased home. Tommy Hemans, Niagara's steadying senior, was high with 23 points—30 in the second half. Hot Bod Hundley (who else?) was the big gun for West Virginia. He.packed in 31 points as the Mountaineers ended their regular Southern schedule in a first- place tie with George Washington The champion and NCAA entry however, will be decided in the three-day tourney opening a week from today at Richmond. Other strange things happened last night too. Princeton and Yale struggled through five overtime periods, one short of the majoi college record, before the Tigers won 79-11 to retain second place In the Ivy League. The first foui extra sessions were scoreless Yale controlled the center jump and held out for a last-second shot. But missed each time. Princeton, which blew a 15-poin lead in the second half, then con trolled the fifth extra center jump and outscored Yale 8-6 with Ben Spinelli hitting a hook and jump Jor the final points. Elsewhere, the tournamen choices gave a better accounting or themselves after losing four of eight Monday and Tuesday. Dayton, ranked fourth in the Associated Press poll and headed or the NIT with Niagara, handed Seattle its most humiliating of nine defeats, 80-48. Seattle, winner of 15 and named today as an NCAA, "at-large" tntry with Oklahoma City, failed to hit from the ield in the first 8 minutes Ump Boos Free^Pass Speedup By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A veteran National League umpire is sharply critical 0: the American League's plan to permit pitchers to give inten tional passes merely by in forming the umpire of that in tention. "That's going too far with thl speedup craze,"' said Larry Ooetz one of the most respected of senlo circuit arbiters. "They'er takini something out of the, game. "I've seen a runner steal a has while a pitcher was throwing fou wide ones. I've seen a man picket off a base in a similar situation And you'll recall that last year i couple of batters leaned over am got a hit while they were trying t walk them. I'm certainly glad ou league didn't go for the change." Remember when Don Newcomb was suspended last season for re fusing to pitch batting practice? Well, this is another year and the Brooklyn Dodgers' right-hand- 1 er apparently is turning over a new leaf. Despite a mild virus infection, Newcombe went through a 214-Hour drill In Vero Beach, Fla. "I feel all right, got no temperature and I,want to work," he said. Manager- Walter Alston, noting Newk's spirit,'nodded approvingly. "If Don feels like working, I'm all for it,' 1 he said. Bruce Edwards, the Brooklyn Tow other NCAA entries bol stered their winning totals. Holy Cross broke Prividenee's seven- game streak 69-60, and Memphis State detested Murray (Ky.i State 100-94. Providence held Tom Heinsohn to five field, goals, but he still managed 22 points. In" a big tourney-decider, St. Joseph's (Pa.) knocked ' Temple to its second defeat in 22 games, 77-88 Hockey, Too .. • NEW HAVEN, Conn., W? —Yale and Princeton must have set some kind of a record last' night when it took six overtimes to decide the rtsults of two sports events in which they split' even. Princeton won the basketball encounter here 19-77 after five overtimes, one short of thr major college record. And at Princeton, Yale came through with a 3-2 decision in hockey after one overtime STEELE BULLDOGS — Members of Steele High School's basketball team for 1955-56 are (front -row, left to right) Biddick, Bishop, Michie, Waller, Lineberry, Wilson, (back row) Trowbridge, Dickinson, Crews, Spence and Wimberly.
