NCAA Playoffs FRIDAY'S RESULTS AT SAX FRAXCISCO I Semi-finals 1 Ohio State. T6; Xc York U., 54. California, 77; Cincinnati, 9. San Francisco, March 18 UP) Defending Champion California stopped All-America Oscar Robertson and defeated Cincinnati, 77 to 69, Friday night to move into the N. C. A! A. basketball finals Saturday night against Ohio State, the Big Ten champion which soundly whipped New York University, 76 to 54, in the first semi-final game. Despite the superb play of All-America Jerry Lucas and playmaker Larry Siegfried of Ohio State, the biggest thrill for the 14,500 fans in the Cow Palace was California's victory over No. 1 ranked Cincinnati. It was the second year in a row California defeated Cincinnati in the semi-finals. The Golden Bears surprised the Bearcats in the semi-finals cn route to the title last year in Louisville. Gillis Guards Oscar With Tandy Gillis drawing the guarding assignment against Robertson, the three year All-America was held to only four field goals and a total of 18 points. Robertson, collegiate basketball's all-time scoring champion, scored two field goals in each half. Darrall Imhoff, California's All-America center, led the Bear attack with 25 points. He spearheaded a California rally that overcame an early 20 to 11 Cincinnati lead and sent the Bears to a 34 to 30 halftime advantage. Lucas scored 19 points. Siegfried, the Buckeyes' court general this year after being the team's high scorer a year ago, also tallied 19 points. New York's Tom Sanders, A 6-6 jumping jack, kept Lucas in check early in the game, but the fabled sophomore was not to be denied. He scored from the outside and on tip-ins in showing a wide variety of shots. v. r.

Millikin's red vest was the only bright spot in the Proviso locker, room under Huff gym. " It was an uphill battle all the way," said Millikin. "Our big boy, Ron Buchanan, picked up three fouls in 32 minutes and was never the same after- wards. Our guards, who've been averaging 20 points between them, got only two baskets in 16 shots. Then we lost Kwiatkowski Dave on fouls. " We shot only .317 fromv the f'eld, missed 10 free On the Air s SATURDAY TELEVISION Xoon WTTW-TV 111 Basketball: Indiana High School Tournament. 1 p. m.

It s e.e m e d like everything happened at once. " We still feel we should have beaten Decatur. In fact, we thought Kankakee was stronger. Bt you don't get a second chance down here." " We looked dead out there even tho we won by 20 peints," declared Coach Isadore Spin Salario after his Marshall team ousted Monmouth. "Maybe the boys expected an easy game and lacked spirit and sparkle," Salario said.' Monmouth's coach, -Mike Kalosh, admitted his game strategy Was none too successful. ." I though it would be better to let the Marshall boys shoot from the outside than to have Ed Franklin . and George Wilson stuffing the ball in underneath the basket. But they shot better from the outside than I thought they would."

Neeman Stars in 5-2 Victory Over Giants BY RICHARD DOZER Chicago Tribune Press Service Mesa, Ariz., March 18 Cal Neeman, the modest East St. Louis athlete, who was al lowed to bat only 105 times last season for the Chicago Cubs, caught a full game Friday. And it certainly was more than coincidence that the Cubs won their first Cactus league exhibition game, whipping a barely recognizable lineup of S a n ' Francisco Giants, 5 to 2. Neeman not only responded with the first full route catching task for the Cubs, he also hit a two run homer off Sam Jones and he later became involved in the first umpire hassle in the six games the Cubs have played. He'll Work Again "And it won't be the last he'll catch for us," concluded Manager Charlie Grimm, Witn only a .162 batting average to recommend him from last year, and with" the addition of the veteran, Del Rice, to the catching corps, it might be surmised that Neenan would be pessimistic over his chances this season. "I think I've got a betteT chance to be the regular this year than last," says Cal. Throw Stirs Argument !

Chicago Tribune Press Service NEW YORK, March 18 Back here in the big burg, the only thing hotter than Bradley university's bas-ketball team is the Chicagoland Golden Gloves squad that established a beachhead Thursday afternoon. The sensation may be that Louisville High school heavyweight named Cassius Clay who, . " .vv. were he a few pounds heavier, might ' rr be considered one of the greatest of all time . . . Fred Cdserio, a coach of the Chicago team since mind of man runneth not to the contrary, says he cannot remember a more skilled fighter than Cassius on the Chicago squad since Joe Louis was a Golden Gloves champion. . . .

CaSSiUS CI3V knee may be the greatest topic of conversation, among . New York sport folk, since - Babe Ruth's famed tummy ache of 35 years ago. Even the most optimistic of New .York baseball fans cannot see the Yankees salvaging a place in the first division if Mantle's pins are not sound. . . . One reliable reporter has suggested that it will be September before Sweden's Ingemar Johansson defends boxing's heavyweight championship, but Promoter Jack Fugazy declares that his organization Feature Sports Inc. is going ahead with plans fqr a June bout between Ingo, the smorgasbord slugger, and Flovl Patterson, the brooding deposed title holder. EDDIE SAWYER, manager of the Phils, must rate as the top optimist of the impending baseball season. Says Eddie, at the Phil base in Clearwater, Fla.: " Our ace right hander, Robin Roberts, looks like ready . money again." ... If you are a baseball sentimentalist, you soon will be able to purchase at auction the seats, flagpoles, lockers, and other such sundry items, from Ebbets field, old home of the Dodgers. The St. Louis Browns Memorial Association of Chicago please take note and even old Walter O'Malley, who transplanted the Dodgers from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, may be interested. Some of those ancient Ebbets field seats certainly would be better than what O'Malley has been offering in the Los Angeles Coliseum these past two4 seasons. W ILLIE MAYS of the San Francisco Giants is not concerned about reports that the breezes at his club's new Candlestick park will favor left-handed hitters. " When I hit 'em right, I can put 'em over the right field fence," says Willie, matter-of-factly. . . . The thorobreds begin running here Monday at Aqueduct's super-plant and railbirds say that Chicago will be harder pressed than ever to retain its position as kingpin of summer racing in. these United States . . . And did you know that New York racing last year gave the state $90,657,589 in tax revenues? . . . . As Goalie Jack McCartan, hero of America's Olympic hockey triumph, left town after his four game tryoutwith the New York Rangers. he said: "I figure I showed the pros more than I, or anyone else, expected."

Eddie sand 10 out of 19 shots from the field for 20 points, popping in six one handers in succession early in the contest. All-Stater George Wilson did his usual splendid work under the boards before fouling out for only the second time this year with 34 seconds " remaining. . West Frankfort, counted out of the tourney long ago, continuad to confound the experts. The Redbirds got here by surviving three consecutive double overtime battles, - and showed Galesburg why. The Silver Streaks had no defense for the West Frankfort hustle or .563 shooting from everywhere on the court. Pike eGts 19 Points A lot of the credit, however, must go to David Pike, a stocky 6 foot IVz inch center who collected 19 points and most of the rebounds. ' The contest was nip and ituck all the way. but West Frankfort never trailed after Pike's lay-up with 3:24 remaining made it 55 to 54. Bridgeport, the smallest school in the field with 385 students, used expert free throw shooting and fine re bounding by Sophomore Steve Cunningham to get the job done against Ottawa. The Bulldogs were successful on 21 of 29 attempts at the free throw stripe. Cunningham got 21 points, one less than John Love, whose dad, Gil, coaches Ottawa. Ottawa came from 11 points behind to gain a 55 to 52 lead with 2:18 remaining, but the stout Bridgepbrt defense shut out the Pirates the rest of the way.
