Cousy retired at the end of the 1962-63 season to become coach at Boston College but the Celtics left no doubt they're still the team to beat in the NBA. Russell controlled the backboards, S.

George Bayer is real long, but he hasn't been able to keep on the fairways at all. Don January, who is listed at 12-1 in the betting, is one of the straightest hitters and has been sharp in recent tourneys. He finished second in the Utah Open; 10th in the Seattle Open and fifth in the $125,000 Whitemarsh Open.
