Detroit's Dave DeBusschere and j Indiana's Jimmy Rayl scored 29 points apiece tonight but Indiana won the basketball game 92-84. The No. 2 shooters for each team also battled to a . draw, Frank Chickowski of Detroit and Tom Bolyard of Indiana potting 21 points apiece. Indiana led 50-46 at the half after the score had been tied six times. Indiana never trailed after moving ahead at 32-31 on a pair of Jump shots by little Jerry Bass, who scored 14 points altogether. DeBusschere scored 23 of his points in the first half, hitting five of his nine fielders from well out. He cooled off during the intermission and made ' only two of 12 basket attempts in the second half. The Hoosiers connected on five of their first six shots from the field in the second half and ran their lead to 80-63 midway in the period. Detroit free throws and a series of Indiana errors reduced the margin to 87-82 with 1:34 to play but the Hoosiers stopped throwing away the ball.

IRISH WIN THRILLER EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP)Notre Dame edged Michigan State 73-72 in the last second of their basketball game Saturday night, handing the Spartans their first defeat in three games. The Irish have won three in five. With 18 seconds left, Michigan State went ahead 72-71 on Lonnie Sanders' jump shot from 20 feet out and Spartan Fans went wild, thinking the game was in the bag. Then Armand Reo tipped a jump ball to John Dearie who scored" the winning basket. The Spartans, who had only one practice this week because of final exams, looked sloppy in the' first half, and the Irish led 43-38 at intermission. But in the second half the Spartans came to life and the lead switched back and forth. Michigan State led in rebounding despite Notre Dame's front line of three 6-foot-6 rebounders. Stan Chandler, a sophomore who played only half the game for State, and Reo shared rebounding honors with 12 each. The Spartans brought down 60 rebounds.-against Notre Dame's 49. NOTRE DAME .

Caprari was floored three times" first for a count of three. Elorde was after him immediately and after a sharp exchange dropped the Italian for an eight- count. The third time the dazed challenger fell halfway., through the ropes and signaled to his manager he could not continue. Elorde weighed'130 pounds anc Caprari 129'/& for the schedulec 15-round bout witnessed by- 35,001 spectators in the outdoor Riza! Baseball Stadium. Elorde's ' manager. Lope Sarreal, said afterward he has of- 'ered lightweight titleholder Joe Brown of Houston $60,000 to de- tend his crown against Elorde in Manila. "Elorde is now a lightweight and" is having difficulty making :he 130-pound junior lightweight limit. So we might as well go after Brown," Sarreal said.. Elorde's triumph over Caprari ranked No. 2 by the U.S. National Boxing Association, marked the third successful defense of the championship he won by knocking out Harold Gomes of Providence, R.I., March 16, 1960. He ater stopped Gomes in a return soul and then won a decision over Joey Lopes of Sacramento, Calif.

Eastern Title Battles Feature NFL And AFL Grid Action Today By ROBERT MOORE Associated Press Sports Writer The New York Giants, a team that wasn't figured to set .the world on fire, can win the National Football League's Eastern Conference championship Sunday by overcoming certain obstacles — the Cleveland Browns in general and Jimmy Brown, Milt Plum, Ik>u Groza and Bobby Mitchell in particular. The teams square off in New .York's Yankee Stadium on this final Sunday of the NFL's regular season. Even a tie would do the trick for the Giants and put them in the Dec. 31 title showdown in Green Bay against the Packers, Western Conference kings. ;The Browns are anxious .to make amends for the 37-21 defeat the Giants handed them Nov. 26. Brown and Plum are the league's -top performers in two individual staistical departments — rushing and pass.ing. Brown is shooting for his fifth straight rushing title. Plum leads the passers just as he did in 1960. Groza, the great placekicker, established an ail-tirce NFL scoring record with 826 points over an 11-year span last Sunday when the Browns lost 17-141 o the Chicago Bears and bowed out of championship contention. Mitchell, the Browns' "Sunday flash" (he's in the Army the rest of the week), isn't first in anything, but the Giants are well aware that he is always a touchdown threat. If the Grants lose, the Philadelphia Eagles could pull into a tie by whipping the Lions at Detroit. In that event, New York and Phil- ladelphia would clash in Yankee Stadium Dec. 24 for the Eastern crown and the right to face the I Packers. Of course, if the Eagles tie or lose, the Giants would be "in" regardless. New York is 10-3, Philadelphia 9-4, Cleveland 8-5 and Detroit, a Western team, 8-4-1. In other Sunday games, it's Green Bay (10-3) at Los Angeles (4-9), Pittsburgh (6-7) at St. Louis (6-7, Minnesota (3-10 at Chicago 7-6) and Dallas (4-8-1 at Washington 0-12-1). The Baltimore Colls and the 49crs played in San Francisco Saturday. By HAROLD V. RATLCFF Associated Press Sports Writer Houston goes to Oakland Sunday with two chances of winning the Eastern Division championship of the American Football League. If Houston beats Oakland, and failure to do- so would be the big upset of the season, then the Oil- ers will be champions and can look toward the league playoff Dec. 24 with San Diego, king of the Western Division. But Houston could lose to Oakland and still win the title if Boston were defeated by San Diego, whom the Patriots play at San Diego Sunday. Chances of Boston losing to San Diego are pretty good, .too. Thus, it would appear, Houston should feel pretty complacent about it all, which is something Coach Wally Lemm would not want. Oakland was walloped 55-0 by Houston when the teams met the first week of the season. Since then the Raiders have managed only two victories and are in last place in the Western Division and in the entire league. While the hour of decision is go ing on out in the West, New York •and Dallas will be putting a drab finish to the campaign with their final game in Dallas. New York has seven victories but six losses. Ddlas has won five and lost eight. Denver and Buffalo have finished the season.

Davis, held to 38 yards in the opening half, carried the Syracuse team on his back on a 42- yard drive in the third period, smashing over for the touchdown from the 1. The second touchdown came on ,a 7-yard pass from Sarette to his favorite target, halfback Dick Easterly, in the fourth perjod, culminating a 51-yard march. Sarette, who out dazzled Miami's celebrated quarterback George Mira with his passing, also hit Easterly for a two- point conversion after the first score and Ken Ericson booted the final,, clinching extra point from placement, after the second.
