Kentucky came from behind in a mile-a-minute climax that carried them to a 57-56 overtime victory over Villanova last night and to the Sugar Bowl basketball finals against Bradley tonight. it was Villanova's first defeat in eight games and the first .one- point victory in Sugar Bowl history. Bradley coasted to the finals by trouncing helpless Tulane 78-46 in the first game of the tournament double-header. Tulane and Vlllanova play tonight in a consolation game that opens the doubleheader at 7*45 p. m. (CST). Seven-foot center ,B1H Spivey was Kentucky's top. scorer, bucketing 14 points and using his height on defense to slap rebounds out to his smalt but quicker teammates. He fouled out with three minutes to play In the regular 1 period. The Kentucky victory was a tribute to Coach Adolph Rupp, who started the season with only two experienced players. Tulane got off to a good start In Its game against' Bradley, but Bradley quickly tied It at 6-6 and took a commanding lead and held it. . • Gene Melchlorrre, a small but flashing forward, was the offensive star, taking many set-up tosses from defensive star Paul Dnruh and making other openings ilmself. He tallied 18 points, one ess than center Charles Grover, the game's top scorer. Forward Mel Payton led Tu- ane with 12 pointa :The Tulane team couldn't find tho basket, making only eight of 27 free tosses.

NEW tORK, Dec. 30, <#)—Part of the Vadal Peterson report on sports In BrazHt One reason for the popularity o basketball, says the Utah coach is that Brail's oDe trf^ sport u to ft few years aftd was socce football. • "Now," he says, "the have found a game they cajn pia with the-r hands instead of thei feet. , . They're eaget to tear about American sports, but they'r very suspicious of Yankees. , They get .their basketball rule and interpretations from Europi with the result they're using th old 1935-3940 rules. . , 1 think w owe It- to them and to the gam to send more teams down there They wanted us to return nex year but WB can't, The Hooter Part of Valor The soccer players, Peterson ex plains, have learned how to tak earn bf violent fan reactions. . "We were at one game in Rio, says Vadal, "when a player ha' the ball out of bounds. . . I coulc just see some object shining li the sun as it flew out of th stands and knocked Mm cold. . H[is ten teammates gathered rounc and we could see them polntin up Into the ; stands. . . As the : stood there trying to locate th_ thrower, the crowd began opening •up like A big V. . . Then th< players started up Into the stand and the V widened put as they climbed. . .
