Gola Near Perfect Leading LaSalle To 17th Win of Season By ED WILKS The Associated Prefs It's difficult to improve on perfection, but if two-tim* All-America Tom Gola isn't doing just that in college basketball he's making a darn good try, The magnificent 6-7 center was at his very best as LaSalle slowly gained momentum to make Manhattan its 17th victim of the season 76-62 last night. Gola simply was the whole show. It wasn't until the last 10 minutes, when the Explorers began to pull away, that he got some support from Charlie Greenberg and Frank Blatcher. Before that, he practically battled the Jaspers on even terms all by himself. He • continually tormented the Jaspers with his ball hawking. He passed off beautifully to his mates, and when they missed the layup he generally was ready to tap in the rebound on the followup.. He also snared 20 rebounds. He scored 27 points, hitting 12 of 23 field goal attempts. Andrews 8-5 Favorite Over Johnson Tonight NE\V YORK (AP) — Because Paul Andrews is supposed to be on the way up and Harold Johnson on the way down, Andrews is an 8-5 choice to win their 10-round rematch tonight at Madison Square Garden. Andrews is No. 2 among the light heavyweight contenders and Johnson is No. 3 but Johnson already had his shot at champion Archie Moore. He was knocked out in the 14th. There has been no demand for a rematch. Although Andrews still is a light heavy, his ultimate aim is Marciano's "big" title. He'll be a legitimate heavy in another 18 months. Andrews, billed out of Buffalo, N, Y. t .because his manager Marshall Miles comes from there, wants to wipe out his defeat by Johnson at Chicago last March 17. He had Johnson down with a left hook in the first round but lost a split decision on Johnson's strong finish. Both fighters will be making their first start ,of 1955 after busy campaigns last year. Johnson won five of seven in '54 and Andrews won seven of nine, losing to Johnson and Joey Maxim, who gave him a boxing lesson at Chicago Nov. 2*. Andrews, 25, has a 29-4 record for his pro career dating back to 1950, when 1 lie came out of the paratroopers. Johnson .26, has a 50-7 record since he turned pro in 1946. NBC will broadcast and telecast the fight at 10 p.m., EST. The Jaspers, wno nad won •!• straight, thrice had third-ranked LaSalle nine points down and held on grimly against a Gola-fired rally for a 37-36 count at the half; Greenberg and Blatcher supplied the finishing kick and in six minutes had outscored Manhattan 1W with only a field goal assist from' Gola. In other games, Holy Crost snowed under little St. Michaels (Vt) 101-72 with Wally Supruno- wlcz scoring 32 points. St. Louis U. overran New York U. 87-66 while paired with the LaSalle-Manhattan game as a Madison Square Garden double - header. Oklahoma surprised Oklahoma A&M 59-50 by hitting 31 of 36 foul shots for the Sooners ' second success in 14 starts. ' Furman Wins Furman showed up without flu- stricken Darrell Floyd, the nation's leading scorer, but called on Bob Thomas and Bob Gaines for 25 points each to beat Davidson 96-67. Sophomore Lee Marshall scored 22 for Washington and Lee in an 82-67 victory over Virginia Tech. "."'.- Bractiey, the NCAA runner-up to LaSalle last season, dropped Its 14th decision in 19 games by an 87-63 count to Notre Dame, ' fi '-, In the Southeastern Conference,; Denver Brackeen, the league's top scorer, hit for 34 to help Missis-' sippi to a 66-58 victory over Mississippi State. j Oklahoma City U came to life' in the second half to humble Texas.
