Smashes Sandies,: 9 Season Ends New York Vs. World n National Invitation fty FHBD DCMX j United I'ress International j It'll be no exag-ge ration if Madison Square Garden President, Ned Irisli decides to bill this year's National Invitation Barrel- ba!l Tournament as "Naw York City vs. the United States." That's tha way it was in the . golden days before the college point-shaving; scandals in 1952 and it leo:<s as if it'll be that way again when the tournament gets underway March 12. ; Pee Wee Slate ! Still Unchanged The Saturday schedule for I n p ' Klwnnls-OptSmlst pec-wee league remains unchanged. I.eiuftie director Clifton MfNeely said Friday i that Tlmr.sila.v'<» Kami's will lin' made up at a Inter date, not Saturday, i Saturday's sixth grade sched- ulo is Baker at \Von'!ro\v Wilson, Stephen F. Austin at Sam Hotis- , ton, and Horace Mann at I .A mar. , In Saturday fifth grade contests, ' Woodrow Wilson is at Baker, Sam Houston at Stephen !•'. Austin, and: Horace Alarm at Sam Houston. i St. John's of New York and Kordham already have accepted Invitations to the 22-year old tourney and a bid to New York University is only a formality after tlie Vioieta 1 78-60 rout of V'illanova Thursday, night. In fact, the only question is \viiethcr NYU wilj take an NIT bid or vote to go to the NCAA tournament. "We'll jump at n. chance to go j tr> the NIT," said Conch Lou Ros-j sini after his team's .«• mashing; victory. "If we a!ro get a bid fn-rn the NCAA a vole of the players will decide the question. But' we're not going 1 to wait : around and take the chance of, lopin;; out altogether. I think our boys deserve a tournament bid.' Trie loam has been developing steadily and when our shooting average holds up, we're a match j for any team in the country." j NY!/ certainly looked every bit | that good in crushing a Vlllnnova ; team which had won 17 of 211 games and was the first team in-i vited to the NIT. The Violets j built a 39-^1 halftime iead and then broke open the game with a; 21-9 spurt that produced a 60-40 margin midway in the second half. ' i Cal Ramsey's 13 points set a, new NYU career scoring mark of 1,101 points but the star of the game was 8-foot, 6-inch center jTom Sanders, who tallied 28 ; points. 19 of them in the first half. NYU has a modest 10-8 season record but looked like the strongest of the four teams which competed in the Garden doubleheader and may all wind up in post-season tournaments. St. .John's Downs Magnra St. John's 16th-ranked in the country and until recently considered the strongest of New York's teams, downed Niagara, 87-78, in the other game but once again seemed to have more trouble than it should have had. The Redmen had a 72-58 lead after about 11 minutes of the second half but let Niagara close the gap to 77-7-1 before Alan Seiden took them out of danger. Seiden, a 5-11 backcourt star, scored seven points in a 12 • 2 burst that helped open Up SI. John's ll-point spread and then' tallied seven of the Redmen's last 10 points after Niagara came close with 3:12 to go. In all. Seiden scored 18 of St. .John's last 30 points and was game high scorer with 31. Tony Jackson added 27 for St. John's and Al Butler had 10, including 14 in the first half.
