Those were the principal results of the season's final loop cage encounter which the Oklahoma iiooners won from Kansas State Monday night 50 to 38. The title was the first won or shared by the Sooners since 10 years ago when Bruce Drake, now a successful first year coach, was a, star forward. The Oklahoma and Missouri records were almost identical. Each team swept its two games with Kansas State and Nebraska, broke even with each other and with Kansas University and Iowa State. Homer (Thin Man) Wesche, Kansas State center, dropped in 16 points for high point honors Monday night, but that left him three points short of the 154-point total established in 1937 by Groves, also a Kansas State center, who was a spectator last night. Jimmy McNatt, who broke the single-game individual scoring record on his home court a couple of weeks ago, counted 13 points for Oklahoma in the first half, but was held scoreless in the second. His total was one larger than that of his fellow forward, Garnett Corbin. Final Big Six standings: Missouri . . Oklahoma ... Kansas Iowa State ... Nebraska .... Kansas Slate .

In the afternoon, the schedule pitts Kamar against Lynnville Eddyville against Hansell, and Olin against Seymour. 'Wellsburg will meet West Des Moines in the first of three night games. Others will find Lenox tangling with Mallard and Van Meter engaging West Bend. On Equal Footing The fact that each team survived grueling sectional and district competition in a field o£ 472 sextets automatically p.laces them on about an equal footing. Nevertheless, several of them appear to be slight favorites. For example, Mallard, representing Palo AKo county, boasts a season's record of 23 victories and no defeats. It came through its district meet with a smash- Ing 51 to 27 win over Fonda in final play. Mallard's bid for consideration is strengthened by its two victories over West Bend the defending champions. However, Lenox, Mallard's op ening foe, has racked up 19 vie tories out of 20 starts, and has on pf the best centers in the slat in Phyllis Dunbar. In addition Lenox was the 1938 runnerup Dunbar scored 48 points in th semifinal and final district game Champions Come Back West Bend and Van Mete promise to put on a real fight. Bu the 1938 champions are given th edge. West Bend has scored 2 victories and its only losses hav been the two to Mallard. VL Meter dropped seven games an won 16. Myrtle Goodson is th Jasper county sextet's leadin scorer, having sunk 13 field goa and five free throws for a total 31 points against Coon Rapids i the district final. Seymour should have difficulty against Olin, strong cas Iowa sextet which boasts 26 straight wins without a loss Seymour lias a record of 23 victories and two defeats. A close battle is predicted be tween Massena and Ossian. Coac Barney McCoy had only 34 gir to draw from in lining up tl Massena team, but they produce for him in the district meet.

Puscli, local alleys manager, announced. Frank Fait was the No. 1 competitor. three district matches in the closing minute or two of play. Lynnville, Hansel! Picked Lynnville probably will rate a slight favorite over Kamrar, with Huth Petersma, six foot forward, expected to become one of the high individual scorers of the tournament. She accounted for 41 of Lynnville's points in its 52 to 23 victory over LeGrand in the district final. Kamrar lost its opening game in district play to Stratford, but finished strong by downing Cowrie, 58 to 24, to gain the finals. Wcllsburg, whose season's record is 19 wins and one loss, may prove too strong for West Des Moines, making its debut in the stale finals. Akron and Farmington appear quite well matched, while undefeated Hansell should be able to down Eddyville if it can show the defensive power it displayed in defeating Iowa Falls in the district windup.
