(AP)—The rise of Concordia'R b a s k e t ball team from poverty to power in three yeafi sounds like a fairy tale. But it's got a hardheaded explanation, simple and .direct. "Concordia wasn't getting the basketball players from its natural drawing area that it should have," said Coach Sonny Gulsvig. "In the last couple of years we picked out the players we thought we had a good chance of landing and concentrated on them." Gulsvig's diplomacy, and his tutoring, have produced a stunning result. Concordia used to lose basket- By JOE UEICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - It is quite possible that the Boston Red Sox will present a new pitching and catching staff in 1959 as Manager Mike Higgins prepares for the big experiment this year. Higgins has four of the youngsters regarded as the best pitching prospects in the Red Sox organization. They are righthanders Jerry Casale and Bill Monbou- quette and lefthanders Ted Bowsfield and Frank Baumann. Casale, 25, a native of Brooklyn, reach of Erickson and Skadeland { was released by the Army last under the backboards, and he has; Se P'ember.

To back it up he offered $150,000 to Henry Cooper who earlier this week outpointed Brian London for the British heavyweight championship. "I see where Cooper wants $140,000 to fight Floyd Patterson for the world title," ageless Archie declared at the Boxing Waters' Assn. annual dinner. "I'll do better for him," asserted Archie.

The' National Boxing Assn. today just about gave the boot to the often disregarded regulation. ,. „ .. The NBA's executive committee! fe ° tlVe ° S the regulars ' said heavy taxation ha dmade it virtually impossible for the major attractions like middleweight champion Sugar Ray Robinson and heavyweight king Floyd Patterson to hold strictly to the code. It made the point at a Thursday meeting in which it accepted assurances from both Robinson and Patterson that they intended to in two games last fall in relief and did not allow a run in the three inning he pitched.

They have tied two. Tech, with a surprise a $20,000 bonus in 1951 and the Red Sox think he now is ready to pay dividends. Bowsfield and Monbouquette were brought up by Boston after the All-star game in 1958. Bowsfield, 23, won four games. Mon- bouquette, 22, won three and lost four. Higgins thinks both now are ready. This is the last chance for Baumann to make the grade. He was shipped to Memphis in the Southern Assn. late last spring where he won eight and lost three for a second-division club. Boston paid him an $80,000 bonus in 1953. Other rookie pitchers include Ted Wills, Arnold Barley and Tom Borland, all southpaws. There will be five new catchers, not counting Haywood Sullivan, in camp. The latter looked like he was ready to take over a regular job last spring when he injured his back and had to undergo major surgery. The best of the newcomers may be Jerry Zimmerman, who was supposed to be a $100,000 beauty when the Red Sox signed him out of high school five years ago. This past season at Minneapolis he was understudy to Ed Sadowski, another Boston rookie. Sadowski, a pull hitter, batted .2G2 and hit 15 home runs while Zimmerman hit homers. But Winona Ace Holds Slim Scoring Lead Tom Thaldorf of Winona holds a slim lead in the Big Nine Conference individual scoring race. Thaldorf has poured in 94 points in five games for 18.8 average and tops the list of 21 players averaging 10 points or better in conference games. Behind Thaldorf is Bob Biorn, Northfield, averaging 16.8 for the same number of games with 84 points. Steve Wally, Winona, has 80 points for a 16.0 mark, for third place. Three Austin players are in the select group with all-state guard Tom Kezar fifth with 14.5. Kezar, playing in four conference games, has 58 points. Clayton Reed with an 11.7 average and Mike Marineau at the 11.0 mark are the others. Winona and Mankato dominate the race, each with four players among the leaders. Last year, Austin's Roger Voss won the title with 208 points for Jail games with the regularity of the tide. The Cobbers went 46 straight games without winning in .he Minnesota Intercollegiate Con- 'erence over one t h r e e-year stretch in the mid 1950s. They were a godsend for league coaches down on their luck, windfall for high-averago scorers around the league and the MIAC's ! champion whipping boy of recent ; history. | Today they are in first place i without a loss in six games, so hot that extra bleachers will be ; needed at the Concordia fieldhouse Saturday night for a first place battle with defending champion Duluth Branch. i The Cobbers reached a pinnacle {Tuesday night by defeating Ham- 'line on the Piper court for the first time ever. "We certainly didn't expect to come so far," said the 30-year-old Gulsvig, a former Cobber athlete who admits warmer as to being a bench- a player. "But now that we're here we're not going to fall over. They know whtr* w» are. They'll have to knock us off." Concordia is a t«ara which delights in having no individual hero to carry the load. "W« «ncourtf« a balanced scoring 1 attack," Gulsvig said. "There ar« many titnt* when we get the entire first team in double figures." Uses Fast Break Concordia "works best off thi fast break, but its running is th» foolhardy, showy kind. Against Hamline the Cobbers often braked near the Piper basket when • drive-in might have failed, and instead worked the ball around until they got a good percentagt shot. For the season they ar» hitting at 42 per cent from the field. The team has good height in 6-5 Bary Bowles, 6-4 Tom Wohlhowe and 6-5 Craig Johnson. Arlo Brunsberg, a muscular, »10 freshman teams with HI Roger Adair in the backcourt. Another youngster, 6-2 Les Torgeson has done a good job pinchhittinf at critical moments. A fine shot, he put Hamline on the skids with his late-game scoring. Has More Worles Gulsvig took over three years ago. His first season's record was victoriej and 20 included a final an inglorious 4 defeats. But it game triumph over Hamline that broke the Cobbers' long famine in the MIAC. The next year Concordfa was 8-14 overall and it was 14-U last season. This year the mark is 10-3 against all opposition. The team has height, poiss and speed, but the coach has worries.

Later, after cooling off a bit, he amended the threat to say "I would like to knock off for six i months and get back in the right frame of mind."

Jones reminded Buchholz of his obligation to the U. S. Lawn Tennis Assn. which spent about $5,000 to send the boy to Australia and exhorted him "don't think of yourself. Think of the association, St. Louis and your family back home." Buchholz told his captain that he- had no heart for the game and perhaps he should give it up. "I can't play my best because am always blowing my top," he said. Jones counselled that a rest might do Buchholz good, that he must conquer this temper and cul- u"°i tivate a better at litude before he can reach greatness.
