FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE 'Cats Give Rupp Vote Of Confidence with Win Littler Leads Phoenix Open Young Shotmaker Cards a 66 to Take A One-Stroke Lead PHOENIX, Ariz Wl — Youthful Gene Littler, who cnme out of the Navy a year,ago to become a pro golfing leader, calmly leads a crowded field Into the second round of the J15.000 Phoenix Open today. Littler, 24, reached the 18th green yesterday needing an eight- foot putt for a birdie to finish with a 66 and take the lead from three other professionals. With the coolness of a seasoned veteran, Littler, who plays out of Palm Springs, Calif., sank it to finish 4 under par. Burkemo Next That left him a stroke ahead of Walter Burkemo, former PGA champion from Franklin, Mich.; Johnny Palmer, veteran from Charlotte, N.C.; and Jack Fleck, Davenport, Iowa. f All had finished earlier with 67s over the 6,684-yard Arizona Country Club course. At 68 was Jimmy Clark, Laguna Beach, Calif., and 10 were bunched at; 69. Included was Gary Middlecoff, Kiamesha Lake, N.Y., who lost in a playoff to Ed Furgol here last year. Purgol, the U.S. Op* champion, had a 70 for his first round. .A chilly breeze bothered the golfers throughout the day despite the bright sunshine. Texos Suffers 15th Straight Cage Defeat BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The University of Texas basketball team today Is on the brink of the worst record since the school took up the game in 1806. A 79-74 loss to Texas Tech Thursday gave Texas Its 15th loss In a row and Its 15th of the season-the first time a Longhorn team has lost 15 games since 1931. Fred Walker's team wound up Puckettless Kentucky Tops Florida 87-63 By ED WILKS The Associated Presi Kentucky Coach Adolph Rupp has himself a vote of player confidence today, whether he needs it or not. The controversy involving Linville Pucfcett, starting guard on the No. 1 team in the Associated Press college basketball poll, left some loose strings dangling. Particularly since his departure from the squad in' a training rules squabble with Rupp—a gentleman who has not had much chance to learn how to lose—followed Georgia Tech's second upset of the Wildcats. P.uckett got off a parting shot about basketball being a matter of life or death on the Lexington campus. That left the question of whether Puckett was the only player out of step with Rupp. "Best Effort" The question was answered last night as Kentucky rolled over Florida 87-3 in what Rupp termed the Wildcats' best effort in a month. Kentucky worked smoothly and with team finesse. It was 45-35 at the half and the Wildcats—who dropped both games to Georgia Tech at the foul line—hit on 27 of 33 free throw attempts. Phil Grawemeyer led the assault with 20 points. Bob Burrow, just recovered from a sinus infection, chipped in 16, as did Captain Billy Evans. Puckett's replacement G a y 1 e Ross scored 12 in his first starting job. Jerry Bird, the other starter, also hit for 12. All in all, a very neat job for Kentucky's 13th victory in 15 games. Florida, incidentally, was fresh from an upset of Alabama, the Southeastern Conference leader. Kentucky is No. 2 in the league. In other games, George Wash- ington, No. 7 nationally, knocked off highscoring Furman 76-71 after a scare; fifth-ranked Utah won No. 16 with an 81-49 Job on .Los Angeles State; and Dayton, No. 15, disposed of Murray (Ky.) State 49-45. At New York's Madison Square Garden, Cincinnati hart trouble but won its seventh straight, 88-78 over Seton Hall, and Manhattan ran its streak to nine, 88-61 over St. John's of Brooklyn. Two Upsets Two upsets occurred too. John Carroll, 8-12 for the season, knocked off St. Francis (Pa.) — the team that surprised high- ranked Duquesne earlier and had bopped John Carroll 115-94 a week ago. And Drake surprised Detroit 93-86 despite Guy Sparrow's 33 points that set a Drake field house record. George Washington, defending Southern Conference champ, stayed within reach of a repeat with its victory, but the Colonials made the mistake of underrating Furman. Darrell Floyd, top scorer in the nation, joined Fred Fraley in a shooting exhibition to pull Furman into a 46-39 lead after seven minutes of the second half, and it was only the great floor work of 6-5 Joe Petcavich that enabled George Washington to rally; Largest of the species Is the giant frog of West Africa, which grows to be a foot long and may weigh as much as a fox terrier. AND AWAY HE GOESr—Bob Cousy of the Boston Celtics .shows the dribbling form which makes him the National Basketball Association's most spectacular star as Fort Wayne's Charley Share makes a vain stab. ("""A) Big Test Tonight for Kid Gavilan By JACK HAND NEW YORK l#t—Kid Gavilan, the known quantity In so many fights, plays the role of Mr. X tonight at.Madison Square Oarden In his bout with slugger Ernie Durando. Nobody knows how much the Cuban has left, whether the cement jaw that absorbed the toughest punches in 117 fights has begun to crumble. It remains to be seen if the mambo routine and the three- a-day chores of a dancing M.C. have taken thlr toll from his legs. Gavilan and Durando, a crude puncher from Bayonne, N.J., don't belong in the same ring if—and It's a big If—Gavilan Is 50 per cent of the Gavilan of old. The former welterweight champion always had too much speed, boxing skill and ring savvy for Durando, whose style could be summed up In one word—punch, NBC will broadcast and televise the fight at 10 p.m., EST. The odda favoring Gavilan it 1 to 3 Indicate that expert opinion still thinks they don't belong In the same ring. Still, Oavllan's unimpressive (to say the least) light.! against Bobo Olson and Johnny Saxton, plus a three-month layoff, hardly Justify unlimited faith. Incidentally, this will be the Keed's first fight for his new manager, banker Yamll Chade. Ike Williams In 1948 and Carmen Basilio in 1953 are the only men who ever knocked Gavilan off his feet. He got up each time, so he never has been stopped in a career dating back to 1913. Durando has the punch to drop Gavilan ,or anybody else. The oaly problem Is landing It. Always * threat but aoldom actually dangerous against a good boxer, Uu- rando could hit the Jackpot U Ciuvl- lan gets too careless. He luui knocked out 38 opponent* while compiling * 38-11-4 record (or M bouts since IMt.
