THE PHAKOS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1957. KOKOMO TRIPS LOGAN FOR TOURNEY TITLE 75-69 Berries Can't Check Rayl, Who Scores 39 Kokomo's Wildcats romped off with the Berry Bowl holiday Invitational basketball tourney title as expected but not without stsrn opposition from the .Loganberries in the final game. The Ka'.s won the contest 75-69 and took home the big trophey which LHS principal J. H. Mertz presented to Kokomo principal, 0. I. Farmer. Jimmy Rayl was the big j:an for th« Kals, also as expected, as he poured in 39 points, 28 of them in tho last'half in an awesome demonstration of goal shooting. He hit 34 of 30 tries from the field and made H of the 13 free tosses that the Kats were able to garner. He wa.s the difference. Larry Cart, Logan's quick-handed guard, kept Rayl pretty well in check the first half but three different Berry guards were planted on the slender 6-1 shooter from Kokomo in the second and nobody could stop him. He hit fro:Ti everywhere. In the afternoon when Che Kats had bested Flora 70-55 Rayl had a rou.gh time; getting only 8 points and made numerous playing errors;. He made some additional er- rore at night but he didn't miss the basket too often. Dor.' Bowling with 16 points and Ray Harbaugh with 12 were Rayl's best helpers in. the title game. The Berries were led by Ronnie Jones, who hit 19 points. Butch Jones with 16, Larry Cart with 17 and John Gibson with 10. What helped the Berries was the fact that they were pouring in free throws like mad all evening. They wound up with a fabulous 29 to 35 free losses and still it wasn't enough. Koiomo led 16-13 at the quarter, 35-27 at the half and 56-45 at the third period. • At or.e time in the final period the Kats held a 19- point lead at 70-51 but the Berries, who never give up no matter what the; score, surged back and cut the deficit to six points at the finish. Monticello won the consolation honors by beating Flora 80-59 after leading 18-15, 35-27 and 60-43 at the quarters. Jim Zerface scored 21 points to pace the Tioga Indians while Carl Wagoner hit 20 to pace Flora. In the afternoon tilts the Berries advanced by stopping Monticello 71 to 51 after having led 12-11, 30-28 and 43-37 at the quarter poles.

He batted .388, and was the oldest player ever to win the American League batting title. This was the highest mark on the majors since 1941, when Williams himself hit .401.
