His 16-game total is HOW 339 points to top the old record of 330 set last year in 21 fames by Bill Wilson. ANNAPOLIS f/Pj—Now Its official. Navy has a potential All-America basketball candidate. Local, fans have marvelled at •ophomore John dune's play lor the past two years. But when the usually reserved Coach Ben Carnevale heaps Praise on a youngster, it's time to apread the news. "Clone Is potentially the best all-around scorer in basketball today," says Carnevale, "and I think he'll gain nation-wide recognition before he graduates." Academy scoring records have, been falling witti monotonous reg-j ularity since the i9-year-old eager began bombarding the baskets as a member of the freshman team last reason. Clune tallied a record 263 points, *n average of 17.5 per game, as the •Irosh swept 15 consecutive games.

Only once has he failed to tally in double figures — when Princeton held him to nine, How does Carnevale rate Clune? i "He's the second best in the East j right now, topped only by Villanova's Larry Hennessey," says the coach. "And he's better all-around than Duke's great Dick Groat, bei cause he can play both outside and | on the pivot. Groat's primarily an He tied his own record of 32 points against Southern California and in the same game set another Navy mark by scoring 14 field goals. Then against VMI he racked up 11 goals and as many free throws to smash the record anew with 33 points. At the end of 13 games, he had scored 278 points for a 31.4 average.

When the Bouncing Badger blasted the galloping G-Guy with a solid 4:08.9 performance in Boston, It brought the official count to 16-4 in his favor since their mile duels began. • Some say wilt ought to rush away as though his competitors had leprosy and run the first three quarters in the style of Gil Dodds, setting a pace that would kill off the field and let him totter home alone. . Wilt, a stout distance runner to whom a mile is a mere junket, has the power for a mauling fourth quarter. Actually, the FBI agent has experimented with this grueling tactic. The only result it got was to make Gehrmann run faster and win by bigger margins. Doesn't Have Speed There ought to be a law against it. 'Fred simply doesn't have the speed in -the stretch to run the mile," Gehrmann' said. "Why don't they let him run two miles, where he could whip everybody?" Greg Rice seconds the motion. And when Greg the. Great discusses the two-mile, folks listen. The former Notre Dame star's 8:51 two-mile world's record has been standing for nine years. "Fred could break my record if he would stick .to the two-mile," remarked Rice. "But to do it, you have to run that distance week in and week out. "He has run the two-mile only once this winter — and that a record-smashing armory record of 8:59.5. Tliis is perhaps his last all- out year in track. .He should try to make it his best." Templeton Laments Dink Templeton, who coached Stanford for so many years, gets a little sad when he thinks of the 31-year-old Wilt puttering around another season with indoor miles. "Fred has no business fooling around with indoor miles, especially in this Olympic Games year," Templeton lamented. "Certainly it is doing nothing to help either Wilt or Gehrmann with their events in Helsinki this summer." There has been wide speculation that indoor track promoters, with qne eye on the bucks office, are forcing Wilt to race Gehrmann. Dan Ferris, keeper of the Amateur Ath- etic Union records, wants to set the record straight. Savin? Self "Nobody is making Fred run the mile. He's doing it on his own accord," Ferris revealed. "He doesn't want to burn himself out running the longer distances, this being Olympic Games year." Despite what his critics are saying, Wilt intends sticking to his present program. He will run in four or five more indoor carnivals, LITTLE SPORT By Rouion McCoole Hoopsters Lose Two Contests Piedmont and Terra Alta registered win over the McCoole VFW cagers in recent games with Piedmont taking a 39-36 triumph and the Terra Altans winning by a 58-52 count.
