Big Ten basketball fans outside of Columbus, O., breathed a heavy sigh of relief. Now, they thought, the Buckeyes' three-year domination of conference titles would surely come to an end. But those fans didn't foresee the brilliance of a 6-foot 8-inch center from Jamestown, O., Gary Bradds. Bradds put on another out- standing performance last night j as he led Ohio State to a 50 to i 45 victory over Northwestern ; before 5,500 in McGaw hall. The decision enabled to Buckeyes to keep pace with Illinois in their torrid battle for Big Ten honors. ; Both teams stand 9-2 with three games left. Bradds Is Difference The difference between Ohio State and Northwestern clearly was Bradds, who came thru when the pressure was on. lie i tossed in 10 of Ohio State's last 11 points. Bill Woislaw, the Wildcats' bespectacled center who plays on guts and two bad legs, did a good job guarding Bradds, slapping the ball down the Buckeye star's throat on several occasions. But Bradds still managed to score 2!" points, or half his team's total. The tall blond has an average of aJ.! in the conference, Bradds also was the master of the backboards, bringing down l! rebounds, many in the climactic stages of the contest, LttM's t'lh in Uow Northwestern, losing its ninth game in a row to Ohio State, went !:! without scoring midway in the first half, enabling the Buckeyes to break out of a t to a deficit into a 10 to 5 lead. The Buckeyes left I ho court with a five-point advantage at the intermission when both teams showed remarkably poor shooting percentagesr-Ohio State, 2,1.5 and Northwestern, 26 9.

Illini Beat Minnesota; Hold Lead Minneapolis, Feb. 25 Special I The University of Illinois basketball team broke out of a 33 to 33 halftime tie to subdue stubborn Minnesota, 81 to 70 before 11,226 in Williams arena here tonight. The victory gave the Illini a 9-2 record in conference play and kept them abreast of Ohio State for the Big Ten lead. The loss, 5th in 12 laague games for the Gophers, smashed their last faint hope of figuring in the title scramble. The victory, paced by Dave Downey's 24 points, was not achieved without its moments of doubt for the Illini, They trailed 26 to 17 midway in the first half, Terry Kune, Minnesota's brillhnt guard ami playmaker, went to the bench with his fourth foul at this point and the invaders rallied strongly for the halftime deadlock.

Again the big national show will be in three rings and will start at 7 o'clock as the heavier titleholders from 30 out of town centers and Chicago try to make their marks in the nation's toughest amateur boxing competition. Chicago fans who taxed the seams of the St. Rita II i g n school and St. Andrew's gymnasiums for the sectional tournaments and the City Finals in recent weeks, will have a chance to follow the four Chicago representatives for whom they rooted so wildly. Chicago's 118-pounder, Johnny Nate Jr. (right) wasn't as lucky as he dropped a three round decision to Frank Glover of Columbus, O., in first round battle. tribune staff Photosj By DAVID CONDON lllinoii l fm, nrtf lUirwpll Snvill ,u npown 1 hon K portion tdwofds v H o 0 I , .1 J Miwilnn M 4 Mi v.rnnn l j j Norlhwo ; 4 Hntptnart 1 ; J Kuntr 0 1 0 l.iltwrdon 4 5 ;l I Inphim 0 0 0 Jfnpri 0-0 0 Davi Keller MinnetOta I '01 n I r & it o J l I j I 45 ,1 i j: 5. 4 0 0 3 o o o n 0 0 0 2 1 0 0 o go o Kit Darlington (left) of Rockford jabbed his way to decision over Joe Knmoa of Denver in second round of 135 pound division.

Sarasota, Fla., Feb. 25 Nellie Fox, the patriarch of the White Sox, jogged out to second base under bright sunlight today, posed gingerly for a few "Mutt and Jeff" pictures alongside lanky Ron Hansen, then got about the business of getting j ready for his 14th season as 'second baseman of the Sox. Nellie joked about the difference in stature of his new infield teammate and predecessor Luis Aparicio, but looked eagerly to the season ahead with the comment, "It won't make any difference to me." Yes, Aparicio was gone, and the WThite Sox were a facelifted group as they undertook their first day of spring training with only three absentees-Floyd Robinson, Juan Pizarro, and Dave DeBusschere. Robinson arrived from Chicago after the workout was over and huddled with General Manager Ed Short, but did not reach a salary agreement he and Pizarro still are unsigned. DeBusschere has been excused to finish the basketball season with the Detroit Pistons. Admits He's Overweight Fox said he was about 7 pounds overweight but otherwise felt fine. Did he anticipate any difficulty getting accustomed to a new double play partner? "Heck no," he answered. "Course, I'll have to get used to him, but then he'll have to get used to me, too. Hansen's a mighty good ball player. You Continued on page 4, col. 4 I Pro Basketball NATIONAL LEAGUE EAST DIVISION WEST DIVISION ' W. L. Pet. W- L. PCt. i BottOR 51 20 .718 L.

George McGuane, Lowell sports writer, is developing a young heavyweight named Donell Harrington, from County Cork, Ireland. McGuane claims that the leprechauns won Harrington's novice title for him after winning his early matches,' Harrington was expected to fall before the fists of a superior slugger in the finals. But the leprechauns began to work on the experienced fighter, and he refused to go into the ring against the Irishman. BUFFALO'S BOYS TOWN brought .a pair of identical twins, both champions, in its delegation, but only one of 'em will fight. The twins are George Walters, 126 pound open champion in the Buffalo tourney, and Jimmy Walters, who won the 126 pound novice title. Jimmy was brought on the trip as a reward for his scrappy showing at Buffalo. . . . Zack Smith, 126 pound champ from Lowell, is a dead ringer for Sammy Davis, Jr. Zack even wears the dark glasses. Zeke Sanchez, 135 pounder on Flem Hall's Fort Worth Star-Telegram team, starred in football despite his size. Odessa High school named Sanchez, a half back its most valuable player. He also is a track sprinter and a baseball shortstop. ... The Fort Worth heavyweight, a 240 pounder, is Claud Devenport; that's it, C-l-a-u-d D-e-v-e-n-p-o-r-t. He was a three year letterman tackle on the Arlington State college football team, and aspires to coaching. Ed Darlington, 135 pounder fighting out of Rockford is a redhaired, smiling young man employed (as a typesetter in his native Morris, 111. His pappy, a boxer in the army, started Darlington in the amateur ranks. "Said it was the greatest sport in the world," comments young Darlington. . . . Johnny Parker, a 126 pounder, representing Rockford he's from Dubuque, la., turned to fighting when he sadly conceded he was too light for football. ... Rockford's 112 pound Jim Loring took up fighting after he moved in with his brother-in-law, Ralph Cervantes; a former pro. BILL HENGEN, the Minneapolis newspaperman, will sandwich an interview with wrestling's Fred Kohler between assignments with the Minneapolis boxing squad. Hengen says: "I'm trying to pin down all the promoters and find out exactly how many world champions there are in wrestling." Roby Jetton, handsome heavyweight from Lincolnton, N. C. he's with the Charlotte, N. C. team, is a football halfback at Appalachian State Teachers college in North Carolina. How'd he start fighting? "About 12 years ago I was at a kids' match and one of the boxers didn't show up. I filled in, and Wave been at it since." O'Shea to Fight Early It o r y O'Shea, the tournament's defending welterweight champion, will be one of the first called upon. He'll be followed by a newcomer to Stadium competition, James Davis, middleweight: Richard Gosha, light heavyweight, and I Mark McNeelcy, heavyweight i i knockout specialist. j j Nick Petrecca, Chicago's' feat h e r w e i g h t champion, !

LAST TOURNEY OF CHAMPIONS! Golden Gloves to Go ' on at Local Level This year's Golden Gloves j Tournament of Champions, j now in progress in the Chicago 1 Stadium, will be the last, Wil-; frid Smith, sports editor of Tut: L.111CAG0 iribune and president of Chicago Tribune Char-itios, Inc., announced yesterday. Smith made his announcement at the annual meeting of the Golden Gloves association in the St. Clair hotel. The Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions, which has been held annually in Chicago for :it years, has been sponsored by the Chicago Tribune Charities, Inc., with .amateur boxers from coast to coast battling in three rings. Smith said the Golden Gloves boxing program would continue at the local level. Issue over Helmets The main reason for abandoning (lie event Mas Iho in sistciice of the ' Amateur Athletic union on having ciiiifcst aats wear helmets. The rule is scheduled to lake el feet m Jan.

Smith said the Golden Gloves association has gone on record repeatedly as. opposed to the use of helmets and reconfirmed its previous' action yesterday by a vote of 24 to 2, lie said he did not believe that The Chi-ragu Tribune Charities, Inc., should put the members of the association from other cities in the position of having to com- a 20-year-old restaurant cook i pete under rules of which they from glamorous Hollywood, ; did not approve. Cal., a good puncher who kept ! - the Chicagoan ori his toes thru- out. However, it was Petrecca's ! nnvt rnitaODtYionl with PaKdi Jones, a 20-year-old boxer from Louisville who boasts of being a "way-out lover," but proved to be quite a fighter, that proved to be one of the best of the evening. Parry Dixon, who like Rickey Nate and Petrecca was making his first appearance in Stadium competition, got thru his bout with Hollywood's Larry Clark, even tho the verdict was unpopular. He then proved himself every bit a champion and joined Petrecca in tomorrow's quarterfinals with a well deserved decision over Hedgemon Lewis, Detroit's knockout specialist who had stopped Tommy Marshall of Nashville in 43 seconds of the first round. Opposition Formidable O'Shea, a plasterer, 21, had a tough row to hoe in reach ing the top last year and his opposition this time is just as formidable, if rot more so. The 147-pound class includes Muncie's Wade Smith, the lad O'Shea narrowly outpointed in last year's final bout. Smith, Continued on page 2, col. 1 MARQUETTE IS 09-58 VICTOR OVER ST.
