THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1953 (AKK.T COURTER Illinois Threat ToTop Indiana By ED CORRIGAN NEW YORK (AP) — Although Indiana has been awarded the No. 1 spot in college basketball by the experts in the Associated Press preseason poll, the Hoosiers first have to win the Big Ten title. Illinois may have something to say about this. The Illini are rated No. 9 in the country and they probably are Indiana's only worry in the conference. Last night, the Illini made Butler their third straight victim without a loss, 80-48, with 6-foot-9 John Carr hitting for 31 points to bring his total to 823, an all-time Illinois scoring record. So long as the Illini can send Carr on the floor, they'll be title! threats. | The only other ranked school to get into action last night was Dayton, which was rated right behind Duquesne as a power in the East. But the school dropped its first decision of the young season to \ Miami of Ohio 72-70. This result could throw an entire new complexion on the East. Fordham, 11 one of the dark horses, won its third straight, defeating i Yale 80-51. The Rams, a crew of | real sharpshooters, made good 2D of their 56 tries from the floor ant! Ed Conlin made all nine of his free throws. Oklahoma City, another team which could cause trouble in ,the Southwest, raced past Texas A&M 60-38. Arnold Short scored 30 points. SMU Victorious Except for Princeton, the Ivy League had a successful night. Cornell broke its own scoring record for a single game in its 92-37 romp against Clarkson. The old mark of 87 points was set only a week ago against Hdbart. Penn defeated Muhlenberg 78-63; Brown trounced Northeastern 7362; and Harvard recorded a 71-55 victory over Wesleyan. Princeton dropped a 69-61 decision to Lafayette for the only league loss. Southern Methodist fought oft a last-quarter rally to lick Tulsa 7270 and Navy scored a 63-55 victory over American International.
