Page 4 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE •Cage-ology TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1971 Aldndor Donates Statistics rREVIEWOF ™™-*yA\ anMa ^ UCLA Holds On To No. 1 •? 8y Eldon Cage, Tribune Sports Editor' This column inadvertently stated that Mary Florey was one of the Blue Devil basketball fans of long standing. Mary Florey is a strong Tipton rooter but we had in mind her mother-in-law Opal Florey as a "Rooting Team- .mate" of Meredith Norris, Olive Huffioe and Marge Crowell. C-0 This column received a UPI ballot which stated who do you think is the favorite to win the state, not who will win the state. Cage-ology voted for East Chicago Washington as the favorite to win the State Basketball Tournament in the UPI Ballotingwhich must be in the UPI Office in Indianapolis no later than Wednesday to be tabulated. Of course, this is no surprise to any basketball fan that EC Washington is the favorite of 95 percent of the rabid Hoosier fans to win theroundball crown, but we added a little note on to our vote, stating that we would also wager a dimer that EC Washington would fall before the state champ is decided. It doesn't seem to make sense to vote for a favorite and then predict that the 1 favorite will get bumped; but several writers and casters are saying the same as we are^ C-0 Tri Central High School's Trojans stand at 12 wins and 7 losses Jn this first evereason for the Northern Tipton County school and of course have the better season basketball record over the other Tipton County Team the Tipton Blue Devils who stand at 4-15 with a bisit to Ma- conaquah this Saturday night at Bunker Hill. The TC Trojans travel to Kokomo Haworth this Friday night for the season'final and then both* the Trojans and Satans get ready for the Frankfort Sectional tourney Feb. 24, 25, 26, and 27, nights only. Four teams from Clinton County in the Tourney are Rbssville with al7-2 record;. then Frankfort with a 15-4 season showing; Clinton Central stands at 10-9; and Clinton Prairie at 4-15. The two Carroll County teams completing, the sectional list are Delphi with a 10-9 record and Carroll at 6-13. Rossville seems to be the slight favorite over Frankfort, Tri-. Central and Clinton Central. But in a short tourney, "sudden death style" lots of unexpecteds have- happened and many more will jell in years to come. Each of the teams have one or more star players which will' be discussed in this column before the tourney begins. The Sectional pairings will be made Wednesday morning and of course this could and will have a bearing on each of the 64 Sectionals in Indiana Basketball. C-0 Pairings for the Tipton County Independent Basketball League Tournament scheduled for the Sunday afternoons of Feb. 21 and" 28 are as follows: three games on Feb. .21 \- Farmers Loan and Trust vs Fraternal Order of Police;. 2:30 p.m.; Windfall Lions Club drew the first round bye; Tipton Building and Loan vs Citizens National Bank at 3:30 p.m.; and John Bean vs First Federal Savings and Loan Association at 4:30 p.m. The second round then will pit winner game No. 1 vs Windfall Lions Sunday. Feb. 28 at 1:30 p.m; and winner game No. .2 vs winner game No. 3 at-.3' p.m. then the two semi-final winners will settle the championship argument at 7 p.m. on Feb. 28. All games are to be played in the Tipton National Guard Armory. C-0 Tipton Freshman Coach Myron Chezem used a little "Brimstone Menu" on his young Satans Monday night and both his Frosh A and B teams finished the season with victories over the Ma- conaquah Frosh at Bunker Hill. The Satan B squad with Greg Hoover and Mike Patmore both canning 10 markers and Jeff Hunter scoring 9, won their game 41-36. This gave the B team a 4-8 season record. The Tipton A Frosh, down 3018 at halftime and 36-27 at the three quarters, caught fire from their brimstone, feed and outscored Maconaquah 21-7 in the final canto to win their wrapup game 48-43. Jeff Landrum hit six. straight field goals in the fourth .quarter and finished the game with'23 markers. Jerry Karnes chipped in with 8 and Fred Cox had 7. The A Frosh ended the campaign 9-5. More 500 Cars INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The . entry list for the 55th running of the 500-mile Speedway race climbed to seven Monday with the addition of three cars, one of which was assigned to veteran Johnny Rutherford. All three entries came from Walter Michner, Jackson, Mich. The cars will be powered by turbocharged Offenhauser engines. ' | ' -.' V Rutherford, Fort Worth, Tex.,. is. a veteran of seven previous races at Indianapolis. He came within a tick of sitting on the pole in last year's "500," when he was the secondrfastest qualir fier. Rutherford, the 1965 USAC sprint car champion, was, the only driver to earn a front row starting position at both the Indianapolis and Ontario, Calif., 500-mile races last season. However, he failed to finish at both events. The two other Michner entries are without drivers. NEW YORK (UPI)— Milwaukee's Lew Alcindor continues to dominate the National Basketball Association scorers with a 31.7 average in the latest statistics released by the league. Alcindor, who has led the scorers since the first week of the' season, had 39. points against Phoenix last week and 38 points against Detroit to stay in front of San Diego's Elvin Hayes and Boston's John Havlicek, currently tied for second at 28.9.

Wilt Chamberlian of Los Angeles, while ' down in the scoring statistics this season, is setting the pace in rebounds with 1,139 and an 18.7 average. ''MPMP0R&. 7/7££ Beliveau Hits 500th Goal NEW YORK (UPI)-While Montreal's Jean Beliveau made the most noise among National Hockey League scorers by reaching the 500 goal plateau last week, the Boston Bruins continue to maintain their stranglehold among the leading scorers. The high-flying Bruins still boast the top four scorers, headed by Phil Esposito with 109 points, and have a fifth member of the top 10 in Wayne Cashman, who ranks seventh after. Chicago's Bobby Hull and Toronto's Norm Ullman.

Keyes Surgery PHILADELPHIA (UPI)Former Purdue All-America football star Leroy Keyes underwent surgery Monday at "Graduate Hospital to repair damage to an achilles tendon. Keyes, a halfback with the Philadelphia Eagles, partially tore the tendon last July and underwent an operation shortly afterwards, but never completely recovered enough to see more than occasional action with the National Football Conference' team last season. An Eagles', spokesman said Keyes was expected to be recov-. ered from surgery in time for the start of practice this summer. Bengals Name? CINCINNATI (UPI)—Cincinnati , Bengals head coach Paul Brown may rue the day the club was given its name. An oil company executive sent brown a real Bengal tiger rug when he started the NFL team three years ago. The rug found its way into, the new offices at Riverfront Stadium last year. A photograph taken of the Tigers, shot in India, was printed in numerous newspapers. Many who saw it know the animal to be a vanishing species. "A lot of people were very upset," said Bengals.publicity director Al Heim Monday. "We heard from Florida, California, everywhere. People wrote saying there are only something like 539 Bengal tigers supposed to be left in the world." . Heim said one man wrote Brown, "If you were a great football player, how would you like to have your head on somebody's floor." Heim said Brown "feels bade that people think he shoots things like that. He rarely has done any hunting and seldom even fishes." After all the furor, Heim said he never wants to "see a dead tiger again." 1 Are you a Buick or Ponliac fancier, in the dark...

Curt Flood says he has a lot of admiration for Bob Short— "he's putting his reputation, his money and his franchise on the line"—but he questions what right Short has to call any of hfs ballplayers "tarnished." . "Who determines that we have been tarnished?" Flood wants to know, j. j Wait a minute now, he wasn't looking to get off on the wrong foot with his new boss, was he? "Bad Boys". "No." Flood said.

Kansas, which has lost only once in 19 games, gotiheother" first place vote cast by* the 34 members who participated in this week's balloting and was fifth with 214 points. Jacksonville, boosting . its record to 19-2 with three victories last week, held on to sixth place and Western Kentucky, despite splitting a pair of . games, remained in the No. 7 spot. . There were two changes among the last three positions in the top 10. Michigan, which lads the Big Ten Conference,climbed from 12th place to the No. 8 spot and North Carolina moved up one place to No. 10 after stretching its record to 163 by beating three opponents. South Carolina, victorious in its only outing of the week, remained in the No. 9 spot. The biggest move among the second 10 was made by LaSalle, Which vaulted from a tie for 15th place a week ago to the No. 11 slot. The Explorers, who are 17-2 showed they could win even without star forward Kenny Durrett when they downed Villanova, 73-69, last weekend. Durrett missed the. game with a knee injury. Up The Ladder Duquesne, also' 17-2, and Fordham, .which is 18-1, also moved up one notch. The Dukes climbed to No. 12 and Fordham moved to No. 13. Each team defeated two opponents last week. „ Kentucky and Notre Dame fell off dismally in this week's balloting. Kentucky suffered an embarrassing loss to Florida over the weekend and dropped • from No. 8 a week ago to 14th while the Irish fell from 10th to 20th after losing, to. Villanova. Notre Dame, which is the only team to beat UCLA this season, has a rather disappointing 13-6 record. Tennessee, which is only one game behind Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference race, held on to the No. 15 spot and Utah State took over the No. 16 position. Louisville moved up three places to 17th, Villanova and Houston tied for 18th and the Irish completed the top 20. College Standings. NEW YORK...
