Kansis Trips St John's In NCAA Finals S«attle-#)-Kansas -rules- th# world of collegiate basketball today and big ' Clyde Lovellette wears the crown. Th« Jayhawks won the NCAA tttle in convincing fashion last night by downing St. John's ol Brooklyn, 80-63, in the championship finale of the 1952 playoffs. Lovellttte, keeping up a terrific icoring pace with the champion- ·hip chips down, led the way with 33 points. His record-breaking performance brought him the designation as most valuable play, cr of the tourney. The Kansas conquest came after Illinois won third ranking by downing Santa';Clara,:67-64, in the consolation game. 'Kansas had beaten Santa Clara-and St. John's had upset Illinois in the semi-finals. '. .. Kansas, which-was rated eighth by the nation's' sports writers in the 1952 Associated Press poll,never gave the Redmen of St. John's a chance in the payoff game. Lovellette put the Kansans in front with an opening- free throw and they stayed there all the way. . . ' · · ; The Jayhawks set up an iron defense that kijrt. the. Redmen in check so they never wre able to keep a sustained^ offensive clicking until the .final .period. It was the only one in which the losers held a scoring edge: Meanwhile, ,'Loyellette kept firing his deadly^pu'shups and hook shots to run up a dozen field goals ·long with nine free throws. Guard BUI .Lienhard and forward Bob .Keiiny added a dozen points each ; as they shared the sharp-shooting role with Lovellette, and guard Gene Kelley was a sparkplug Jon-the. floor. . The 6-foot-9 .'.Loveilette ran his four-game NCAA playoff scoring total to 141 points. He had broken- the old record'.of 83 points in the first three games.- It had been set by Don Sunderlage of Illinois last year. ·· '· · He also set a r ;new free throw record of 35 for.'the four games. The old record of : 27 also was held by Sunderlage..: - / The tight Kansas defense kept the St. John's star center, Bob Zewoluk fairly -well in check through most 'of the game r .as Lovellette hung over him like a leaning tower under the' basket. Zewoluk got nine points in spavk- ing a fourth quarter St. John's drive, bringing his game total to SO. He fouled out 3/4 minutes before the end. Tht maximum snowfall in. the United States occurred at Tamarack, Calif., in the winter of 190657.

Iron ^ec*r*lions ' ···rents* FtiKtt, (fairways GABE COOPER IS " 441 «. LMIIII Seattle - W) - Basketball's rules doctors .will operate today on late- game stalling and cheap fouls-.and in the opinion of most coaches, who 'watched a trial run last night. it should be major surgery. · It seemed, certain that the rules | body would come up With something along the line of last night's experiment in the Illinois-Santa Clara consolation game at the NCAA championships, won aV the mini £7-64. ~ . '; Briefly, here were the changes tried: . - · 1. All foul shots had to be taken. Present rules permit a fouled teamv to take the ball out of bounds and retain possession, instead of shooting. · 2. A second shot was awarded when the first was missed on 'any foul, either defensive or offensive, up to the final three minutes. 3. In the final three minutes, every foul was considered intentional and worth two shots. The ball remained in play if the last' foul shot was missed. It went to the opposing team if the toss was made. Howard Hobson, Yale coach, Had this to say: "It certainly didn't hurt .the game and made it faster, with a better finish. There was the same ball hawking. In my opinion the trial was very successful." Harry A. Combes, coach of the Big Ten champs from Illinois, called the changes "very fine." "They, had a lot of merit from the 'spectators' standpoint and took the pressure off the officials. We experimented with the same rule in the Big Ten two years ago and liked it," he added. ' Bill Morris, assistant coach at Washington, thought the revision was well balanced because "forced shooting of all free throws gives the team behind a chance to catch up, while two shots on all fouls in the final three minutes also helps a team deliberately fouled." The major dissenter was Santa Clara's coach, Bobbie Feerick, who thought the idea would increase rather than curtail, stalling. He said a team ahead, knowing it would get two shots in the clos- minutes, would invite fouls' by hanging onto the ball. That's what Ills team tried to do, and failed, with the score 58-58 at the three- minute mark. The crowd watching the Illinois- Santa Clara' encounter did not seem to notice that free throws could not be waived. None of the coaches questioned made any mention of this phase of the experimental rule change. However, the National Association pf Basketball Coaches went resoundingly on record, 45-5, yesterday in-favor of banning the waiver of-.foul shots. They sent this recommendation along to the na- tional rules cornrrilttee, along with several others In the tame vein as those tried last night. The rules group, which was due to wind up at noon today, was reported by a spokesman to be in general agreement on the need for 'unfreezing" the final.minutes of games and making fouls more costly. ' Davey Stops Williams In Fifth Round Chlcago-OT-After it was all over you would expect the winning fighter to say: "I murdered de guy." Instead you heard Chuck Davey orate: "I'm glad the referee stopped it because I would hate to have to see such.a great former champion as Ike Williams knocked unconscious." , And then, in Williams' dressing room where he was on a rubbing table with his seconds dabbing cotton on his gashed cheek, his manager caid: Ike. was lightweight champion for six years and was the best with class and punch .'. . three years ago you should have seen him pulverize . . ." And so it went last night at Chicago Stadium. Blinky Palermo, Ike's manager whose license in Illinois has been suspended vending a probe of a police record, hovered over his has-been like a - mother hen. "We didn't take Daycy seriously enough," Blinky repeated. "Ike would like one more fight. As for a rematch with Jimmy .Carter who dethroned Williams for the lightweight crown 11 months ago we won't hold him to a return bout now--it wouldn't be fair to the .public. Ike on the dressing table, didn't say a word. Davey, holder of a masters degree from Michigan State, had graduated to the ranks of a top welterweight contender.- He remained undefeated through 32 professional bouts by scoring a fifth round technical knockout over Williams. fLASH!
