The Wildcats also eliminated the Big Ten representative in the 1942 and 1949 tournaments. Phillips Third In AAU Tourney Denver, iP) -- Champions for ;even of the last nine years, Phillips 66ers of Bartlesville, Okla., settled for third place Saturday night In the National AAU Basketball tourney by outclassing the Pcoria, 111, Diesels, 72-55. The game, played as a prelude to the championship tussle between San Francisco and Kort Collins, Colo., was dull and uninteresting after Friday night's blazing semi-finals. The Western conference champions, completely unawed by Kentucky's record of 30 victories in 32 games, played the Wildcats off their feet for the first half, leading 39-32 at that stage. But Kentucky, with Spivey finding his delicate feather touch around the boards, stormed back to tie' the score 39-39 after two' minutes of the second half and set the, stage for the tremendous windup. Before Spivey went out on personal fouls, he had thrown in 28 points, just short of the tournament record set by North Carolina State's Sam Ranzino in 1950, and he had dominated both boards in the second half. Illinois, sparked by Its heads- up duo. Stmderlage and unsung Red Fletcher, almost matched Spivey goal for goal. Fletcher, a junior from Champaign, 111., who usually confines himself to rebounding, scored 21 points, including eight field goals. Sunderlage finished the evening wilh 20. It was Fletcher who was responsible for sending Spivey to the sidelines with Kentucky clinging to a precarious 70-69 lead and threo minutes to go. Shifting into the pivot, he drove for the basket and forced the fifth il from the gangling Kentuckian from Macon, Ga. Fletcher missed his shot and then proceeded to miss two important free throws. Linville then put Kentucky ahead 72-69 with a headlong lay-up shot, that din't even hit the rim. Ted Beach, Illinois' long shot artist who didn't find the range Saturday, tossed in a free throw and :hen Irv Demoras, sophomore from Chicago, tied the score at 72-72. Linville then hit again--his second time in as many minutes--, only to see Sunderlage knot tha count again at 74-74 with: a half minute remaining. Hera Kentucky took the ball up the floor and ; Linville connected from under the basket while the crowd stood on its toes and let out a rafter-rocking, roar.
