Loaded with height and high- scoring veterans, this was sup- po.sed to be one of the teams turned out in recent years by Coach Adolph Rupp, the highly' succe.s.'jful "Baron. of the Blue- '^rass." But a 62-61 victory over I Maryland Thursday night, saved I only by a desperate "freeze." jwas the Wildcats' third poor [showing within .six nights. I First, Saturday, it was Temple that stunned the court world by whipping the Wildcats. 7.3-61. in the biggest upset this j sea.son. On Monday night, De- jPaul nearly did the same thing, 1 losing, 71-69, only on Jerry Bird's j basket for Kentucky with six seconds left. * • • THURSDAY night, at College Park, Md.. the Rupi>-men seemed to be finding themselves at last as they zipped to a 39-31 margin over the unranked Terrapins. Then, suddenly, Kentucky was in trouble again as Maryland staged •I rally. For the final 10 minutes, the lead bounced back and forth like a hot potato. Finally Kentucky got a chance to freeze out the clock with its one-point lead and that was the game. If there's something seriously wrong with the Wildcats, they're in for plenty of trouble very quickly. They return home Saturday night to play host to Idaho, a visitor from the Pacific Conference, and then Tuesday night they meet Minnesota in tlie oiHMTing round of the Ken- lucky Invitational tourney, followed the next night by a clash witii either Utah, the nation's •^iNo. 2 team, or fifth -ranked Dayton, * * « S.\N FRANCISCO, the nation's No. 1 team, opens its seven -game national tour tonight at Chicago, risking it.'; 29-game winning streak against Marriuotte in the opening round of the DcPaul tournament. Baseball Bureau revealed that the 24-year-old Mays compiled a .6.59 slugging percentage and also topped the circuit in total bases with 382. Duke Snider of the Brooklyn Dodgers ranked second in .slugging with .628 while Ted Kluszewski of the Cincinnati Redlegs was second in total bases with 358. * • • MAYS, who also led the circuit in slugging with a .667 percentage in 1954, Is the first National Leaguer to win two straight slugging crowns since Stan Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals did it in 1943 and 1944. Other National Leaguers who have won the slugging crown in consecutive campaigns were Chuck Klein, Rogers Hornsby and late Hans Wagner. Mays, who played in 152 games, compiled his 382 bases in 580 official times at bat. He collected 185 hits, including a leaguelead- ing 51 home runs, 13 triples and 18 doubles. Snider compiled his .628 percentage with 338 total bases for 538 at-bats. He had 166 hits, 42 liomers six triples and 34 doubles. Kluszewski amassed his 358 total bases on 192 hits, including 47 homers and 25 doubles, but failed to hit a single triple. Musial ranked eighth in slugging with .566. His 318 total bases marked the 11th time he passed 300 in his career — an N. L. record. EDDIE MATHEWS of the Milwaukee Braves, who ranked third with a .601 slugging percentage, led in bases on balls with 109. Richie Ashburn, the league's batting champion, ranked second with 105, while Kluszewski's 25 intentional passes were tops for that department. Outfielder Don Mueller of the Giants struck out only 12 times for the best showing in that category. On the other extreme Cincinnati's Wally Post fanned 102 times. Peewee Reese of the Brooklyn Dodgers hit into the most double plays—22—and Bill Bruton of the Braves into the least— two. Lakers, Nats In 135-133 Thriller By United Press The new scoring records wen) into the National Basketball Association book today as a result of the Minneapolis Lakers' hair- raising 135-133 victory over the Syracuse Naitonals In a triple overtime game.

The Nationals' total of 133 points was the higliest score ever posted by a losing NBA team, topping Anderson's total in that same five-overtime struggle.
