Philadelphia 97 overtime Minneapolis 95, Milwaukee 81 Sugar Ray Easy For Tiger Jones But Despite Defeat Former Champion Wants to Continue By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN CHICAGO (#f—They fed Sugar Ray Robinson to a tiger last night and he was gobbled up. From all indications, it is the end of Sugar Ray's ring comeback, but Robinson himself insists he wants to continue. Ralph (Tiger) Jones, dropped from the middleweight ratings aft- losing five straight, chugged hungrily after Robinson from the start of their nationally televised fight in Chicago Stadium and sledged him almost at will for an overwhelming 10-round decision. Future Uncertain The International Boxing Club, looking ahead to a possible big attraction of Robinson and Kid Gavilan in another month, appeared caught out of breath. IBC Secretary Truman Gibson, asked about any future bout for Robinson, an 8-1 ringside favorite, muttered: "I just don't know. . . . I just don't know." The former welterweight and middleweight titleholder, now 34, who started his comeback after 30 months as a song-and-dance entertainer by kayoing Joe Rindone two weeks ago, was handed the worst beating of his career by Jones. With his timing off, and with mast of his best shots whizzing harmlessly past the Tiger's n< gin, Robinson rustlly tried to fight off his stalking foe with combinations that were weak imitations of the broadsides that had blasted a ring record of 137 victories in 142 bouts. Wants to Continue Time and" again, Jones drove Robinson into the ropes and mauled him pitifully. Sugar Ray's right eyebrow and nose bled throughout most of the scrap and at times his arms dangled as if helplessly weighted down. All three officials scored it heavily for the 26-year-old Jones referee Frank Sikora voting 99-94, Judge Ed Hintz 100-88 and Judge Ed Walsh 98-89. Each fighter weighed 159 pounds. "I wnnt to continue." Robinson insisted later. "I think Jones wa.s just too tough an opponent for a second fight. But being egotistical I wonted to take him on even though Joe Glaser (Ray's business manager) was against it from the start." Home Court No Edge As Missouri Falters By ED WILKS The Associated Press Whatever happened to the so-called home court advantage in college basketball? It was nowhere to be found, in the cold, gray stone fieldhouse at Columbia, Mo., last night as Kansas State played like it owned the joint and dumped Missouri on the already crowded upset heap. It was a 78-67 demise for the Tigers, previously unbeaten in the Big Seven, as K-State scored on 51 per cent of its shots from the field. To further confuse the home court argument, it was just last Saturday that Missouri — No. 8 in this week's Associated Press poll — toppled the Wildcats at Manhattan, Kan., 94-85. They also split their two-game series last season, each winning way from home. Out of Lead Missouri slipped out of the Big Seven lead with the defeat, leaving Colorado (3-0) all alone in first.

C., OPl — Beau Jack, World Lightweight boxing champ in 1943, will find out tonight If he's too old for a comeback. The 33-year-old Augusta, Ga., native says he'll carry "that old killer feeling" into the ring against middleweight Eddie Green. 27. of Kannapolls, N. C. The id-round bout will be his first since May. 1951. when Gil Turner stopped him in the eighth round. The Richland County Boxing Commission found Jack in top physical condition. Announcement of the match drew criticism from Jack's ex-manager, Chick Wergcles of New York, who said Jack has a bad knee which won't permit him to back up. "He'll get hurt," Wei-gcles predicted. Jack, however, kept up a fast training pace and said the knee, chief reason for his retirement, was strong again. He's expected to weigh in for the event at about 148. Jack's record is 80-24-4. Green, a good puncher, has won 48 of 60 fights. Athletically Yours By BILLY BEALL Arkansas' choice for their replacement of Bowden Wyatt as head football coach with Jack Mitchell undoubtably came as a surprise to many Arkansas , followers. The consensus is that Mitchell will have a big problem on his hand in converting the Razorbacfc single- wingers into a split T machine. Lest we forget, how about Murray Warmath at Minnesota. The Mississippi State ex-tutor certainly proved that theory wrong when he took a traditional singlewing^ club and transferred them into a smooth working split T organization. It shows it can be done and Mitchell is expected to attempt the change. The big problem facing Mitchell at Arkansas IB if he turns out a winning combine the Arkansas followers figure he should with the material left by Bowden Wyatt. If he has a losing season at U of A there might be a tendency for many or the fans to say it would never have happened if Wyatt had remained, or if Mitchell had not attempted to transfer singlewingers into split T operators. We must keep in mind Jack Mitchell is very eager to turn out an outstanding ball club in his first year at Arkansas and in the Southeast Conference. He certainly realizes the task facing him, even if he were to remain with the single- wing setup. Who could say truthfully Arkansas is expected to better their record of this past season? The big news in the south end of the county is the Northeast Arkansas Golden Gloves Tournament being held in Osceola. Twenty-one fights were held the first night of the tournament which opened Monday night and last night there were sixteen fights on the card with about the same amount due for tonight's card. The finals for the NEA Tourney will be held Saturday night with the starting time set at 8 p.m. Thus far in the tournament the Attention TV Owners!
