Alton fitgft'StfcifiltM!!H8ft had a Ifo-day tadiHc* ttnts -week at ftwttiscv &at tt MOT* ,-_„ .i'itfftMi, lest It, wa* 6ut 6f the championship .light, played anethe? ofl& test It, and wa* out of the consolation competition and -tournament, fhufsaa? nlfcht thfe vadallott - ertdia * fcbrttfltJyV - Moh- mouth eliminated the Sifds from eonsldefatlon, *& the locals test, 46*34. There wfcsn't tod much Altbft could do about the way* Monmouth went about , winning the game. •When the Blfds did succeed In slowing down the Monmouth fast break, then the Hilltoppefs had to contend with the long set shots of the winners, who took advantage of their "eye' 1 fr6m far out to score the majority of their points. The Birds were employing a zone defense through most of the game, but found it didn't work against the sharp shooting Monmouth boys, who had lost to Potomac the day before to be eliminated from championship contert- Hlon. , But There's Two Halves • The Hllltoppers , were m the game for the first half. They, lagged .at the end of the first quarter, 13-10,' and was stllC behind by three points at the half, 24-21. Then along came the fatal third • canto and the Birds were defeath- ered by the hot shots of the Monmouth brigade. Alton could only manage four measly points, in the next-to-last frame, while Monmouth galloped, to. 11 to take a Commanding 35-21 lead. In the last period,' Monmouth guarded their lead, added some insurance and held the Redbirds in check. "'•••,.•... It was J the second "cold" night In succession for the befuddled Birds. . Against Pontiac the night before, they couldn't have -bought a basket from the scorekeeper for a television set. Their spell was continued last night and they made only 13 field^goals/ •...;• Carstens High Fred Carstens was-high man for the Alton' quintet.. He poured in four buckets for eight points. -He was also perhaps the best man on the floor for Alton last night. He was getting most of the rebounds the • Redbirds were getting, when they were getting them. Karl Hoagland came in_ for second honors • with : seven points on a pair of baskets and a trio of .free throws. :,'••' Rod Connor, using, his height, got a couple of baskets and the &*fte ttudftF &i fbtt shots tef si* mot* Alton -points. , , , After indfe thf ee boys, the scot* tog was pretty well teatterM Wftete else could it fee? fa* Hill got two, baskets tat tout points, fcob, Kuhfc ,aftd . Tomm> Holmes eaeA got three jpolnts, Leigh Lawrence* managed to sneak In a bucket some time dur* f»t the game ft* two points, and Bob Collins got & point on free throws. .. Alton's record is now one vt^ tory, eight losses. ' . B» tMK ASSOctATED Tilden Tech of- Chicago upset Centralla and tiny Bradley dumped Danville last night in llli. nols high school basketball tour* nament surprises. Kankakee romped ott with the title at East St. Louis. Highly fav* ored Mt. Vernon won again in its meet, • Tilden's Blue Devils won the Centralia tournament crown by beating - Centralia 42-37 in the final. The championship suggests Tilden may be Chicago's strongest state title threat in years. It was Cefctralia's second loss in 12 M games. Only Mt. Vernon had beaten the Orphans previously. Undefeated "Bradley, from Kankakee county, handed a 58-49 quarterfinal defeat to Danville, the pre- tournament favorite at Paris. It was Bradley's tenth win and Danville's first loss in nine games.

New Trier .did it with -a 61-45 i-omp over Edwardsviller-the latter's second loss in eight games. LaSalle-Peru had won only two of six games before slapping down East Moline 49-45. Freeport's 59-49 win over Rushville was expected. Undefeated Athens won No. 11 at Macomb's tournament, beating Western High 48-46., West Aurora was nearly upset by Leyden of Franklin Park in the quarterfinals of the 16 team DeKalb meet, but squeezed out a 5147 overtime win.
