The .Shamrocks face another tough assignment tonight. They draw rangy St. Louis Park Benilde, another favorite, in the semifinals at 7 p.m., and the winner i-> expected to go all the way. Benilde. making its first appearance in the second annual Holiday test, turned back Bethlehem Academy in the opener yesterday, 67-46.

(AP) — Youth and punch beat youth and experience Friday night as Garnet (Sugar) Hart of Philadelphia took a split decision over New Orleans welterweight, Ralph Dupas in a 10-round bout. The defeat put an end to Dupas' boast that he never had lost to a welterweight, and the victory for Hart bolstered his position as for Don Jordan's a contender crown. How soon the Philadelphian will get a title shot is problematical, but Harry Markson, International Boxing Club executive director who watched the fight, indicated Rookie Halts Warrior Skid; Lakers Fade By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The headlong plunge of the Philadelphia Warriors to the lower depths of the National Basketball Assn.'s Eastern Division has been stopped and it took a rookie to do it. Young Guy Rodgers, a former All-America from Temple, put on « great performance Friday night leading the Warriors to a 106-93 victory over the New York Knickerbockers at Hershey, Pa. Rodgers scored 28 points, handed off a dozen assists and grabbed 11 rebounds. Until they went into their tailspin, a couple of weeks ago, the Warriors bad compiled a 9-11 mark, which kept them within tight of the leaders. Now they are nil but out of the running. The Boston Celtics widened Uieir lead in the Eastern Division by polishing off the Minneapolis Lakers, 107-91, and the Detroit Pistons whipped the Cincinnati Royals, 131-91, in « doubleheader w Detroit.

Dupas was not particularly downhearted by his setback, which was by the narrowest ol margins. Asked how he rated Hart among the other welters he has met, he said he rated him right along with Vince Martinez as the toughest he has fought. He beat Martinez. It was a ding-dong battle from the start in Miami Beach Auditorium, and it was Hart's punching power — he had registered 20 knockouts in 29. previoulufights— which was the difference. Although Dupas is the same age as Hart—23—he started young and has had 90 bouts, exclusive of the Hart affair. Referee Jimmy • Peerless gave the fight to Dupas, 98-97, based on the 10-point "must" system for the winner of each round. Judge Gus Jacobson had Hart in front, 9695, and Judge Stu Winston's card had Hart on top, 97-94. The Associated Press card had Hart winning 97-94. The nationally televised bout drew 2,846 fans who paid $7,172.25 to see the ranking welters battle it out. Hart is rated No. 2 and Dupas No. 4. hRd 12 for Sleepy Bye, which lost its sixth game in seven starts. Today's program opened with two afternoon consolation games as B-A battled New Ulm Holy Trinity and Sleepy Eye met Sacred Heart. Consolation finals are at 1 p.m. Sunday with third place determined at 2:30 p.m. The championship game will be staged at 4 p.m. Pacelli broke a tight game wide open with a good third period as they moved out 40-27 after leading by only five points, 23-18, at intermission. New Ulm, which carried a 6-1 record into tournament play, pulled within four points, 29-25, midway in the period before the Shamrocks closed the door by scoring 10 straight points for a 38-25 spread. Fail to Recover After that, Holy Trinity failed to recover and were never a threat in the final period despite the fact Pacelli coach Marty ^rowe had his reserves in action the final three minutes. Neither team showed much offensive punch in the last period as they matched scoring with five points apiece. It looked like a breeze for Pacelli as they broke loose for a 7-0 lead before Tom Janni broke the ice for New Ulm with a free throw. Holy Trinity managed to tie the score at 10-10 at the quarter .hanks to a seven-point rally late in the quarter when the Irish turned cold. Score Tied 3 Times The score was tied three times and New Ulm led twice in the early stages of the second period before the Shamrocks went in front to stay on successive buc- tets by Bob Schottler, Jack Meyers and Leon Zender just before the. half. In the first half, Holy Trinity's size enabled them to control the boards, but Pacelli came up with some aggressive rebounding by Zender and Gary Maschka in the third and fourth periods, which enabled them to take away the play. Although the Shamrocks finished at 38 per cent with 19 baskets in 49 attempts, they were streaky and at times missed easy setups. On the other hand, they played good defensive ball with Larry 3cheid and Meyers stealing the ball several times. Show Scoring Balance Holy Trinity hit only 12 of 47 attempts to finish at 25 per cent. They dropped only eight of 22 free throws while the Shamrocks capitalized on seven of 10. The Shamrocks had three in double figures with Zender setting the pace with 14. Schottler added 11 and Scheid 10. Three times in the third period Scheid capped a fast break attack with baskets. For Holy Trinity, 6-4 center John Schaffer contributed 12 and Dave Tauscheck added 10. The victory left the Irish with a 7-1 record.

The Packers plan daily workouts until the New Year's Day layoff in preparation for a non- conference game against Hibbing here Jan. 3. Yesterday's drill was the .first! for Austin since they thump Winona, 70-61, in a Big Nine Conference test, Dec. 19. While most of the cagers appeared a little sluggish it shouldn't take them long to get back in shape. Berven, never one to.take it easy, outlined a heavy practice schedule which should bring the club up for a peak performance against the Iron Range school. He does not plan any changes in his lineup and the same combination which started the' Winona game, Jerry Goodwin, Clayton Reed, John Dean, Mike Marineau and Tom Kezar, is expected to be intact for the Hibbing contest. Following that game, the Packers return to Big Nine action Jan. 9 when they host Mankato, the only undefeated team in the conference race. Next Saturday's attraction is a doubleheader.

For those who like variety, the North-South game at Miami tonight rounded out Florida's contribution, while the Blue-Gray game at Montgomery, Ala., and the East-West Shrine game at San Francisco brought together more of 1958's top talent. A national television (CBS) audience watched twice-beaten Mis- sisippi put its one touchdown favorite role against thrice beaten Florida in the Gator classic at Jacksonville before 42,000.
