St. Louis, St. Bonaventure *nd St. John's in that order, and these teams draw first-round byes when the tourney is launched with a triple-header next Saturday. NYTJ was accepted even before it bowed, 78-75, to St. John's ana LaSalle was in before it routed Manhattan, 77-55, last night at the Garden. The Violets cannot be classed as auper-dupers, especially since teams like Manhattan and Notre Dame upended them just previous to their S. John's meeting. But NYTJ draws well at the Garden and alongside the local entries of the Brooklyn Redmen and Seton Hall, the Garden can count on a. big local ticket sale. Seen As 'Hit Show' < That's not all. St. Bonaventure and Holy Cross are loaded with New York talent. This, plus their nearness to the Big Town, means more ticket*. LaSalle is from nearby Philadelphia and will bring its fans.

Kingsley had tallied the first points in the "sudden death" second-overtime period which had been played as a regular extra period stanza with Centre Street winning, 38-37, It now goes into the books as a 37-35, Kingsley victory and gives them an 11-9 record for a deadlock with Wiley Ford and St. Matthew's for seventh place. Tomorrow's top contest will be the St. Luke's-Calvary battle slated for the 'Y' court at noon. Si Luke's is one game behind Grace Methodist with the Calvary cagers two games back In a deadlock with Episcopal for third place. Grace Methodist meets St. John's Lutheran and should have little trouble coming through with its twentieth verdict in 21 games. Centre Street, in fourth place, and Living Stone Brethren, in fifth place, square away in another big game on the Allegany court at noon. Episcopal, now on a three-game losing streak after setting a league record with 39 consecutive wins, pis. plays Presbyterian and hopes to re- 4 ij I gain the winning touch.

Because Lalu Sabotin weighed in ten pounds heavier than "^keets" Starkey, that ding-dong fight staged Tuesday at Pittsburgh almost didn't happen . , . -"'Bunny' Buntag, Starkey's manager, threatened to call off the bout, but finally bowed to .Commissioner John Holahan's wishes . . . Weight is usually not a factor in a battle of light- heavies, but it played its part in Tuesday's gruelling struggle, according to Al Abrams, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette sports editor . . . "Skeets" didn't lost any prestige in dropping a split decision, Abrams wilting that "Starkey can come back anytime" , . . The Steel City scribe said fans went away satisfied that they had seen one of the best brawls in years . . . We'd say that Starkey scored i something of a moral victory, his slam-bang performance being an answer to those critics -who accused him so unjustly last summer when he "blacked out" in the first round of an outdoor show at Penn Avenue Field to suffer the first defeat of his pro career, a technical kayo at the hands of Harold "Butch" Sampson . . .
