10 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Don Duncan Scores 32 Warriors Fire .595 But Lose Tilt With Centralia 102-77 WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1963 SPORTING DAZE] By JOHN RACKAWAY Although shooting at a fantastic .595 clip from the field, the ball-handling mistakes of Mt. Vernon's Community College Warriors proved too many as the locals fell to Centralia Jr. College's powerhouse, 102-77, in Vernois Gym last night. Centralia now has won thren straight without a loss, ivhlle Mt. Vernon dropped Its third game In a row. However, the locals held the Slue Devils to 102 points— the lowest they have tallied In any contest this season. The Warriors clicked for 28 field goals in only 47 attempts to compile their incredible .595 mark. The visiting Blue Devils managed to get off 90 shots and connected 40 times for a .444 average. The game was low scoring and close in the opening minutes, but an aggressive defense by the tough Blue Devils forced the Warriors to make numerous ball-handling mistakes that en- j abled the victors to increase their margin. Centralia maintained a ten to fifteen point lead during most of the first half as the locals tried in vain to catch up. At intermission, the Blue Devils pulled to a 47-33 lead. Mt. Vernon was trailing 7952 midway in the final half before charging back to close to 82-64. but a hard-nosed Centralia defense rubbed out this threat. Denny Barnard and Roger Woodrome fouled out for the locals in the second half.

That's about the only thing the nation's top two teams proved Tuesday night in a doubleheader at Chicago. It look Loyola's top-ranked Ramblers -10 minutes and a five- minute overtime session to get by Detroit 113-108. NYU's second-ranked Violets managed to get the job done in regulation time, edging Northwestern 75-66. Both games were in doubt until the talent-rich clubs sprang a pair of sophomores for key baskets. Tom Manzke sank the basket that pulled Loyola ahead in overtime and Stan McKenzie hit the key shot to put NYU out front to stay. Ron Miller's 25-foot jump shot as time ran out pulled Loyola into a 98-all tie and forced the overtime. Manzke then took over In the overtime, stealing a pass and 1 racing in for a lay-up that put ! Loyola out front to stay IOS-106. NYU trailed at the half, 40-35, spurt cd ahead early In the second half, but was still locked in a struggle with Northwestern at tvUi3 with -1:-15 remaining. Mac- Kenxie then found the range, connecting for the basket that i i>ui the Violets ahead for good. 1 Tenth-ranked Kansas was the ionly other Top Ten team in ac- Ition, and also ran into difficulty before subduing a stubborn Tex;vs Tech team 73-67. Elsewhere, Bud Koper's 41 points led Oklahoma City to a 05-90 victory over SMU. Dave Stallworth collected 30 points as Wichita walloped Duquesne 917-1 and Notre Dame whipped Bowling Green 79-65 despite a 41-point performance by the Falcons' Howard Komives.

(AP)-You couldn't twist Coach Adolph Rupp's arm hard enough to get him to admit Kentucky is a dark horse for national basketball honors—but it's evident the Baron ol the Bluegrass has another powerhouse on his hands. Kentucky, displaying a great one-two scoring punch has crushed its first four opponents with such ease that even Rupp admits he's surprised. But still Rup declines to get his hopes up. "I would rather be a winner than a prophet," he twanged. The secret of Kentucky's success has been the scoring ot Cotton Nash and Ted Deeken. Nash, a 6-foot-5 toward and center from Leominster, Mass., is averaging 27.8 points a game, and Deeken, a 6-foot-l forward,. ^ •. /-s, j -r, u n from Louisville, Ky.. is scoring \SM n ^ lUe at °4 7 clip | Springfield Grirnn won Cahokia Defeats Sparta In 3 OT's SPRINGFIELD. 111. (API — In a toe-overtime battle, Sparta was spilled from the undefeated ranks of Illinois high school basketbal teams da 77-75 by Cahokia. It was Sparta's first loss in j four games. Cahokia had lost; clip. And, Rupp has a 6-foot-2 sophomore waiting in the wings who the Baron says is just as good as anyone on the Kentucky squad. He is Mickey Gibson, . wlio averaged 23.1 points a game last year as a freshman. Gibson is waiting out disciplinary probation, which is expected to be lifted in about two weeks. With Nash, Deeken and Gibson fourth contest in a row, topping Riverton easily 73-4-1. on the front line, Kentucky could have the highest scoring front line in college basketball. This could offset the Wildcats' lack of height. Kentucky is ranked fifth nationally in the weekly Associated Press basketball poll.

The Bears placed six players on the 22-man first offensive and defensive units. Green Bay had five and New York four. Y. A. Tittle, the Giants' superb passer, was a near unanimous choice for quarterback and Jimmy Brown, Cleveland's record-breaking ground gainer, received all but two votes for fullback. Mike Ditka, fine tight end of the Chicago Bears, also polled all but two of the 42 voles cast. The selections were made by a committee of three sports writers and broadcasters from each of the 11 league cities. Ditka was the Bears' only representative on the offensive team but the fine defensive club placed five men on the first unit. They were 6-foot-S end Doug Atkins, linebackers Bill George and Joe- Fortunato and the two ball-hawking safety men, Richie Petitbon and Roosevelt Taylor. Only nine of the 22 men selected last year repeated—six on offense and three on defense. They were Del Shofncr, New York Giants' split end; tackle Forrest Gregg of Green Bay; guards Jerry Kramer of Green Bay and Jim Parker of Baltimore; center Jim Ringo of Green Bay and Tittle of the 1962 offensive team. The defensive repeaters were tackles Roger Brown of Detroit and Henry Jordan of Green Bay and corner back Herb Adderl'ey of Green Bay. Shofncr and Ditka were picked for the two end jobs with Gregg and Dick Scha'frath of Cleveland at tackles and Kramer and Parqer at guard with Ringo at center.
