Experience May Open Door tor St. Louis Basketballers AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD 4C W«dnft»day, Dee. 24, '58 19 By ED CORfttOAK Pf»i Sfjffirfc Writer St. Louis, which has spent most of the years since the departure of Easy Ed MaCauley on the outside looking in, might just find the key to open the door this year. A big order? Definitely. / The felllikins* chief opponents in the Missouri Valley Conference are Cincinnati, the defending champion, with Oscar Robertson waylaying all opposition, and perennial contender Bradley. Where does that leave St. Louis? Well, the' Billikins have a new coach, John Benlngton, for one thing, fid Hickey left for Marquette and a change sometimes can work marvels. For another, Hickey bequeathed his successor a veteran outfit. There was only one departure by graduation. The 57-S8 team posted n 16-10 record, far from sense- tional, but a year's experience counts a lot. The Billikins whipped California 53-43, In an intersections! battle Tuesday night to push their rasord over the .660 mark, 3<2, They've been beaten only by Kentucky and Cincinnati, hardly a disgrace since these two are running 1-2 in the Associated Press poll. Bob Perry, 6-8, and Bob Word- matin, 6-10, were the St. Louis stalwarts in the defensive game. They controlled the rebounds for the Billikens' and that spelled the difference. As for Bradley, ranked 13th in the nation this week, the Braves remained undefeated by winning their sixth game, a 50-44 decision over Dartmouth. The Billikins are hoping that Bradley will stumble along the way, especially, since Chuck Oshorn's outfit suffered some serious losses by graduation. The Bills figure they'll have to help themselves against Cincinnati, whom 70-63. Alex Adams scored 16 points in the triumph. Once-beaten Illinois recorded its fifth victory by rolling past Stanford, 71-62, and Tulsa won No. 5 in a row by edging New Mexico State, 60-58. . Montana scored over Oregon, 82-75; Portland thrashed North Dakota, 78-49; and Idaho clubbed Kent State, 60-54, in other major games.

Colts Change 'Discards' to Title Winners BALTIMORE (AP> —The Baltimore Colts went on their honeymoon this year in the traditional style of a bride. The squad sported something old, something new and something borrowed. The blue was felt by other National League teams which had provided almost half the players who won the Western Conference, The Colt squad which will play the Eastern Division winner this Sunday includes 14 players let go by other NFL clubs at one time or another. The Colt originals are old buddies, defensive tackle Art Donovan and offensive guard Art Spinney. They were drafted by the first Colt team in the NFL in 1950 after being teammates at Boston College. The "old" look on the Colts includes offensive tnd Jim Mut- scheller and .defensive end Gino Marchetti, who came to Baltimore from Dallas. The "borrowed" appearance sprinkled generously throughout the Colt squad consists of six players obtained in trades and eight picked up after others just discarded them. The most publicized of the discards is quarterback John Unitas, jthe league's leading touchdown I passer and all-time record holder with touchdown passes in 25 con secutive games. The Colts salvaged Unitas from a sandlot league after he was dumped by Pittsburgh. The Colts also made first string' ers out of linebacker Bill Felling ton, offensive center Madison (Buzz) Nutter, defensive tackle Gene (Big Daddy) Lipsomb and defensive back Milt Davis after other teams decided they couldn't use them. Carl Taseff, Don Joyce and Bert Techichar joined the first line of defense after trades. The Colts' handpicked players in the .college drafts number 19 The banner years were 1955, with six sticking, and 1957, with seven still on the club. The 1955 stickouts are fullback Alan Ameche, offensive end Ray Berry, halfback L. G. Dupre and offensive tackle George Preas. Defensive halfback Andy Nelson and offensive tackle Jim Parker have been the prizes of the 1957 class. In 1956, the Colts made only one draft pick, but it turned out to be halfback Lenny Moore, who has been sensational. Ray Brown at defensive halfback is the best so far- of the 1958 draft selections.
