(AP)-Collinsville. the state's No. 2 team as the pvep basketball season heads toward the madness of tournament time, appears the class of Southwestern Illinois. But watch such other teams from this cage-wacky area as Belleville, Edwardsville. Cahokia. Lincoln of Fast St. Louis and Madison, once tourney "hectivi- ty" rolls around. Belleville, once a leader in this season's Associated Press state poll, now ranks 10th with a 20-3 record. Edwardsville ranks 13th. Only three points separate Col- linsviUe from a perfect 21-0 mark. The Kahoks' lone loss came in their second game of the season at Granite City. 66-64. Since then Coach Vergil Fletcher's charges have run roughshod over 19 straight opponents. The Kahoks climbed steadily up the state rating ladder since the beginning of the season until reaching their glorified height of the runnertip spot behind Ccn- tralia's Orphans. Collinsville lias achieved its lofty distinction with a starting lineup that includes three juniors and two seniors. Most of the offensive and defensive burden has fallen on the shoulders of Collinsville's "big three" of Ron Matikitis. Joe Brennan and Roger Bohnenstiehl. The guards are Jerry Soehlke and David Russell, both juniors. Bohnenstiehl, the other junior, Is the team's leading scorer. He is hitting a 20-plus clip and is the top scorer in the tough Southwestern Conference where such other stalwarts as Belleville, Edwardsville and Granite City compete. The 1962-63 Purple and White edition is reminiscent of Collinsville's undefeated 1960-61 club that captured the state championship enroute to a 32-0 record. The current Kahoks employ the full-game, all court zone Press that played havoc with 1960-61 foes. This season's "big three" is comparable to the 1690-61 trio of Bogie Redmon, Fred Riddle aiid Bob Basola. Until recently, Collinsville's biggest argument as the prep powerhouse in this area came from still-potent Belleville. The Maroons leaped into first place in the statewide poll after beating Centralia in the latter's holiday tournament. They stayed there until beaten 5n surprisingly easy fashion bv Collinsville on Feb. 1, 60-51. A week later the Maroons were upset by Edwardsville, 74-71. to drop them further in the ratings Even with three losses. Belleville is not finished. On the con trary, the losses could make Coach Jerry Turner's club tougher once the state elimination tourneys begin. Belleville banks on the gifted touch of 6-5 senior center Dave Renn with added punch supplied by senior guard Roger Bechtold. WhUe Renn and Bechtold usually earn high-point laurels, balance is the main forte of the Maroons. Coach Jerry Turner considers junior Del Gerrnann the "best six-footer" in the state. Ho holds down one forward spot while 6-5 senior Jerry Jowett anchors the other side of the floor. Bechtold's running mate is senior Roger Mueller, a smooth ball handler. One of the finest small-in-stature clubs in the area is Edwardsville. The Tigers, a hustling, run-and-shoot band of basketeers, line up at tip-off time with only one staiier over six feet—6-2 junior center Bob Harris. Edwardsville offsets its lack of height with good outcourt shooting from the hands of 5-11 senior Bob Paproth. 5-11 senior Rich Gusewelle and 5-9 senior Alan Vest. The other regular is 5-7 senior Larry Schaake. Edwardsville is only one of two clubs to bent Bollevile this season. The other was Collinsville (twieei.

Final two games of the current season will be played in the new Assembly Hall. Harry Combes' Illini will be more interested in whining the Big 10 title than in getting nostalgic about old Huff—but none can deny that the old home Door has been kind to Illinois teams since they won the inaugural there against Butler 23-22 in the 1925 season. Over the years, Illinois has won 338 of 417 contests in Huff for a superb .811 percentage. Since Harry Combes became coach in 1948, his teams have won 166 while losing only 26 at home for an even more amazing .865 average .... Illinois has lost fourj games this season but remains unbeaten on the home court. Nothing like "friendly" surroundings to help you do your best. * • * In addition to the college games, 37 state high school championships have been played in Huff. Strangely enough, the individual scoring record for the hundreds of games in the old gym was set by a prep star rather than a college player . Terry Dischinger, of Purdue, racked up the college high with 45 points in 1962—but Jerry Kuemmerle, of Danville Schlarman scored 49 against Rock • Falls . in the 1958 state tourney ....

The former Mt. Vernon Ram star, now leading scorer and play- maker for Western Illinois U., fractured a small bone in his left wrist last Friday night- in a game against Illinois Normal. Coleman scored 17 in the game and came back the following night to score 16 in another victory. Then, on Tuesday, the wrist began to hurt and X-rays revealed the fracture Western Athletic Director Ray Hanson said the type of cast required to hold the fracture will determine if Carrodine can continue to play this season. The little Mt. Vernon guard has averaged 22.2 points per game. Western is being considered for both the NAIA and NCAA tourneys and plays Western Michigan in a decisive conference game this Saturday night. Most of us Ram fans can vouch for the fact that Carrodine will be in the lineup if the decision is left to him. Never able to overpower cage opponents with his 5-10 stature, Carrodine made headlines with skill and determination. He developed into the best in the South Seven in his senior year at Mt. Vernon. Probably the finest tribute to CaiTodine's aggressive play came from Benton coach Sherwood Pace during Coleman's eight-grade career for the local Junior Rams. Carrodine was giving fits to Benton ball handlers. The Benton coach shook his head and commented: "That Carrodine boy is the only player I've ever seen who can run a complete press defense by himself!" • * • Sports Shorts Fans who plan to attend the Old-Timer Heart Fund Benefit game at the high school tonight should be there at 6:30 to see a great frosh battle between Mt. Vernon and Benton ... The Ram freshman crop is regarded as the best in years, but Benton has a 17-3 record and owns an earlier 42-38 decision over the local yearlings , . . * • * And speaking of frosh prospects, down at Marion they're already counting on young Greg Starrick, eighth-grade star, as a member of the high school varsity next season. If it happens, of course, Greg will be playing for his pop, Coach Wendell Starrick . . . Centralia will probably win the Southern Illinois grade school title tonight. However, the unbeaten Centralians had better watch young Starrick. He got 39 points in Tuesday's semifinal win over Attucks, scoring all 29 of his team's points in the opening half. He got 41 against Mt. Vernon earlier this year. Greg wouldn't be the first freshman to play varsity ball at Marion. Others have included John Kent, current Marion grade school coach, Wild Bill Buckner, Floyd Hill, and Wendell Hill. Rumors have had Papa Wendell on thehotseat at Marion for the past couple of years, but, with young Greg on the warpath, it doesn't look like the time for a change . . .

Marshall Stewart, sensational 6-4 Carrier Mills' senior, drilled in 58 points Tuesday night against Ridgway. It was the season's high for southern Illinois and broke the Carrier Mills school record of 52 points scored by Oliver (Big Cat) Rollins against Sesser in the 1955 - 56 season . . . Stewart hit 9 the first, quarter, 12 the second, 9 the third, then banged home 28 down the stretch by netting 12 of 15 shots from the field and 4 for 4 at the charity line.

If there is a tie at the end March 9, the "Rose Bowl selection formula" will be used for NCAA tourney play. Triggering the tight race are Illinois and Oliio State, each 7-2: Minnesota, 7-3, and Indiana. 6-3. Indiana is not eligible to enter the NCAA tournament because of its probationary status with that group. In case of a deadlock, the selection would be made on this basis: A team which has never gone to the NCAA would get first choice. Minnesota, Northwestern, and Purdue are the only teams never represented in the tourna ment. If there is a tie among the teams which have gone previously (except Indiana), the team which most recently competed in the meet would lie eliminated. The most recent years for these teams include Ohio State (1962) Michigan State (1959), Iowa (1956), Illinois t1952i, Michigan (1948) and Wisconsin (1947). Gary Bradds continues to open a gap in the scoring race. The Ohio State senior boosted his average to 31.3 points a game. Jimmy Rayl and Tom Bolyard give Indiana the best one-two punch being No. 2 and No. 3 on the list with 26.1 and 24.9 respective iy- Northwestern's Rich Falk with 24.1 and Purdue's Mel Garland with 24.1 round out the top five scorers.

The Bearcats' 37-game winning string came to an abrupt, painful halt in Wichita Saturday but their quest of an unprecedented third straight NCAA title is still very, very active. They could take a major step in that quest by beating North Texas tonight, which would se cure Cincinnati its sixth straight Missouri Valley Conference berth in the NCAA rcgionals, first step on the long road to the championship. The Bearcats, still ranked first in the nation, take a 19-1 mark into the game while North Texas, at 10-11, is enjoying its best season since joining the league in 1957. Cincinnati won a previous meeting 75-58 at North Texas earlier this season.

Bob Kennedy Head Coach For Bruins PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - The first official move of Col. Robert Whitlow, the Chicago Cubs new athletic director, surprised no one. He named Bob Kennedy head coach for the 1963 season. The announcement came after a high level session Wednesday attended by Whitlow, assorted vice presidents, coaches, minor league managers and the club president, Phil K. Wrigley. Chicago-bom Kennedy is a 17- season veteran of the major leagues whose first managerial assignment came last year when he guided Salt Lake City to second place in the Pacific Coast League. As a player, Kennedy was a third baseman and outfielder for the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians. He also played for Baltimore, Detroit and the Brooklyn Dodgers. Kennedy's Cub coaching staff will include Lou Klein, Veiion Walker and Fred Martin, all members of the club's 12-man coaching brigade. Charlie Metro finished the 1962 season as head coach but was released after the Cubs finished ninth in the National League. If you want to keep tab on the other coaches here's the line-up: El Tappe, named manager at Salt Lake several months ago with Mel Wright assisting; Rip Collins, Vedie Himsl and Charlie Grimm are with Kennedy and his staff through March 17: Buck O'Neil. Goldie Holt and Bobby Adams will report at Mesa, Ariz., for the opening of the Cubs minor league camp March 15. Prep Phenom Will Attend Notre Dame JOINS WILLIAMS, DIMAGGIO, MUSIAL Willie Mays 4th Player In $100,000 Bracket By MTKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer "This Willie Mays, he does everything." And gets rewarded accordingly. San Francisco Manager Al Darck paid the compliment and the Na tional League champion Giants will be paying Mays approximate ly $100,000 for the 1963 season, a plateau reached before by only Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio and Stan Musial. Mays agreed to terms Wednesday for an estimated increase of $10,000 following a season in which he led the National League in homers with 49 and drove in 141 runs while batting .304. While Mays stepped into the Gi ants' fold, World Series opponent Ralph Terry—the pitching hero who shut out San Francisco 1-0 in the deciding game of the Series- agreed to terms with the world champion New York Yankees. The 27-year-old right-hander posted a 23-12 record last season and received a $12,000 raise to $35,000. Besides Terry, a host of other pitchers signed, including Roger Craig of the New York Mets, Ray Herbert and Gary Peters of the Chicago White Sox, Carl Willey of Milwaukee, Ernie Broglio and Bobby Shantz of St. Louis, Bob Allen and Wilfred (Sonny) Siebert of Cleveland and Steve Dalkowski of Baltimore.

One of his touchdown runs was for 97 yards. The game Was played before 91,000 in Soldier Field. His five touchdowns broke the Prep Bowl record of four scored in 1937 by the highly-publicized Bill DeCorrevont. DiLullo's coach John Jardine said more than 100 colleges and universities had made contact with DiLullo and offers included those from schools in all major conferences. / Acted Like A Meathead"— Phil Rizzuto ELIZABETH.

(AP) - Well wishes and light advice are snowballing for hospitalized Phil Rizzuto, whose right hand is bandaged as big as a boxing glove after his encounter with the wrong end of a snow-blowing machine. The former New York Yankee baseiball star had his hand mangled when he tried to clear the clogged machine he was using on his front walk. But Rizzuto cheerfully tells his visitors at St. Elizabeth Hospital: "It's better to make a joke out of it. Every time I think of it I want, to jump 6 feet in the air." The 45-year-old former short- top, who now shares broadcasting duties for the Yankees, said he was using the machine for about the third time, clearing his walk Tuesday night, when the wet snow and slush clogged it "Like a meathead, I struck my hand in to clear out the snow. I didn't think the blades went that far back." The blades of the running machine broke the bones in eight places, and crushed two of liis fingers. He won't have normal use of the hand for about a year. Oollece Basketball Scores By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS EAST Providence 6S, Assumption 67 LaSalle 73, Duquesne 69 Seton Hall 92.
