Bearcats to Se
LOUISVILLE (A') - Mighty Cin-
cinnati, with Paul Hogue playing
ailing Jerry Lucas, crushed Ohio
State in their long awaited re-
match last night, 71-59, and won
the National Collegiate Basketball
Championship for the second
straight year.
Wake Forest won third place,
edging UCLA 82-80 in the opener
of the showdown doubleheader be-
fore 18,469 at Freedom Hall..
Hogue, a 6-8, 240-pound bull,
was facing a Lucas considerably
under form as a result of the
sprained left knee the Buckeye ace
suffered in Friday's semifinals. But
it's doubtful that even a 100 per
cent Lucas wuld have made any
Played Five
The Bearcats of Ed Jucker, who
shocked the basketball world by
beating Ohio State 70-65 in over-
time in the title game last year at
Kansas City, played it almost all
the way with their wonderfully
cohesive unit of Hogue, Tommy
Thacker, Ron Bonham, George
Wilson and Tony Yates.
Still it was Hogue who made
the difference this time, the first
time two schools ever met in suc-

cessive years for the NCAA cham-
Scores 22
Hogue scored 22 points and did
a tremendous job on the boards,
both on offense and defense. This,
combined with the jump shooting,
of Thacker and the high pressure
defense and ball-hawking of- the
Bearcats, made the outcome never
in doubt after a 37-29 halftime
The pressure began to tell on
Ohio State as time ticked away
and with the massive crowd roar-
ing as it turned into a rout, the
Bearcats poured it on. They led
by as many as 20 points before a
late Buckeye flurry cut down the
final margin.
Two for Two
Making it two chamipionships in
two years of coaching for Jucker,
the Bearcats pushed their season
record to 29-2 and wound up win-
ning their last 18 games. Ohio
State finished 26-2 and the loss
was only the sixth against 78 vic-
tories since Lucas joined the var-
sity and began his spectacular
career three years ago.
The big fellow from Middletown,
Ohio--ironically located only 28

'miles from Cincinnati--did his
best with a left knee heavily ban-
daged but obviously bothering
Not Up To Par
He couldn't rebound like he us-
ually does, he couldn't defend like
he usually does, and he didn't
shoot like he usually does.
The three-time all-America and
player of the year the last two
seasons has an over-all shooting
average of nearly 63 per cent in
his collegiate varsity career, which
ended tonight.
Against the Bearcats last night,
he hit only five of 17 shots and
scored by 11 points.
Hogue, who came to Cincinnati
from Knoxville, Tenn., four years
ago because he wanted to play on
a team with the great Oscar Rob-
ertson, also wound up his collegi-
ate career..And if he has suffered
in the shadow of his highly pub-
licized rival to the north at Colum-
bus, he barged out of it last night.
Paul took 18* shots, many of
them hookskand short jumps over
Lucas, and hit on 11. He added 19
rebounds. With Thacker pepper-
ing away consistently at long
range, they made a pair that Ohio
State couldn't come close to

'Proved Our
Point,' Says
Cincy Coach
LOUISVILLE W)--"We showed
them tonight we're the nation's
No. 1 college basketball team,"
said Cincinnati Coach Ed Jucker
after his Bearcats mauled Ohio
State 71-59 to win their second
straight National Collegiate Bas-
ketball Title. 1
"This is a real great satisfaction
to me and the boys," he said.
"Everyone thought it was a fluke
when we beat Ohio State last year
for the title. We had a point to
prove when we sta'ted out tonight
-and we proved it."
In last year's finals, Cincinnati
defeated Ohio State 70-65 in over-
Contended All Season
Jucker has contended all season
his Bearcats, co-champions of the
powerful Missouri Valley Confer-
ence, were not getting the credit
they deserved..
Jucker couldn't say too much
about his great team-and in par-
ticular 6-9, 240-pound Paul Hogue.
Hogue, throughout his collegiate
career has been in the shadow of
Ohio State's three time all-Amer-
ica Jerry Lucas.
Jucker was reminded of this and
was asked if Hogue was'out to
prove a point, too.
Much To Do
"I'm sure this had much to do
with Hogue's great performance,"
Jucker said. "I know Paul feels
deeply about this. He played a
great tournament and he did a,
great job on Lucas
"Tom Thacker was like five men
out there. He was all over the
place, feeding, jumping and re-
bounding. He played a very power-
ful game. And I can't say enough
for him." Thacker scored 21
points, topped only by Hogue's 22.
Hogue also had 19 rebounds.
Asked what made the difference
In the game Jucker said "I
thought we stymied their feeding
game and had them standing still.
This proves defense has a big
place in basketball. When our
team plays defense, we play of-

Dayton Wins in NIT;

NEW YORK 01)-Dayton ended
a long string of frustrations yes-
terday by winning the National
Invitation Basketball Tournament
with a powerful 73-67 victory over
St. John's of New York.
The exciting final was played
before a Madison Square Garden
crowd of 16,037 after Loyola of
Chicago had beaten Duquesne 95-
84 for third place.
Chmielewski. Stars
Dayton, a fiveltime runnerup in
nine previous NIT's, was led to its
first triumph by sophomores Bill
Chmielewski and Gordy 'Hatton.
Chmielewski, completely out-play-
ing St. John's vaunted Leroy El-
lis, spearheaded the Flyers into
control of the game and Hatton
applied the clincher in the closing
Dayton went with its starting
five until just one minute was left
and each had a big hand in the
victory. Playing tight, patient
basketball, the Flyers refused to
wilt against a' furious St. John's
rally at the finish.
Dayton pushed ahead by 11
points midway in the second half
butsaw the lead dwindle to five
with 7:18 to go. Then Hatton, a
6-foot guard, put on his clutch
performance with 11 of Dayton's
13 points.
Named MVP
Chmielewski, a bruising 6'10",
235-pounder, was named the tour-
nament's most valuable player. He

total of 107, and had 11 rebounds
yesterday as he thoroughly out-
classed Ellis, St. John's 6'10" sen-
ior center, under the boards.
Hatton, who had a cold hand
in the first half, netted 18 points
and had 94 for the tourney.
Ellis scored 22 points for the
Redmenshitting only five of 19

St. John's, which has won the
NIT title three times in 16 appear-
St. John's had an 18-11 lead
midway in the first half before
Chmielewski paced Dayton into
the lead. It was see-saw for the
next few minutes, but the Flyers
gradually moved ahead, led 35-29

Sweet Triumph
The triumph over favored St.
John's was a sweet one for Day-
ton Coach Tom Blackburn, who
has brought teams into this 25-
year old classic 10 times in the
last 12 seasons.
Five times before his clubs had
finished second-in 1951, '52, '55,
'56 and '58. Blackburn said after
Dayton's three previous victories
this time out that his squad was
at its peak and yesterday's game
proved him right.
On Defensive
With its advantage in height,
Chmielewski'ssuperiority over El-
lis, and the overall, polished team-
work, Dayton clearly -had St.
John's on the defensive after tak-
ing its halftime lead.
Time and again the Redmen
were forced into desperation shots
and they just weren't going In.
Dayton put together a string of
six points while holding St. John's
scoreless for a span of nearly four
minutes as the midway point ap-
proached in the second half.

Grfih K0 ..Pa ret in , Twelve .
NEW YORK (A)--Fired up Emile
Griffith of New York stopped
champ Benny (Kid) Paret of Cuba
in the 12th round last night and
regained the world welterweight
A series of right hand blows to
the head staggered the 25-year-old
Paret midway in the twelfth
round, and, as he started to slump
to the floor, referee Ruby Gold-
stein stopped the fight at 2:09 of
the round.
As Goldstein grapped his arms
around Grifflith, the dazed Paret
continued his slow slump to the
floor. He collapsed on the canvas
as the announcement of Emile's .
victory was made
Dr. Alexander Schiff rushed into
the ring, to attend the stricken
champion. Then Paret was carried
out of the ring on stretcher.
Head Injury
"It looks like he suffered a
head injury but we don't know
what it is, said Dr. Ira McCown,
of the State Athletic Commis-
sion's medical staff.
Paret, who had taken a severe
beating although he had floored
Griffith in the sixth round, didn't
seem to have any pep at all in the
twelfth. He was sluggish and mov-
ing flatfootedly.
Griffith, eager to make up for
his split decision defeat to Paret
last Sept. 30, nailed Paret with a
right to the jaw. Paret went
against the ropes, where he had
spent most of the fight.
Griffith hammered him with 'a
series of rights that sent Parets
head between the second and top
rope. Griffith hammered him with
several uppercuts to the head that
kept the blood flowing from Par-
et's nose and a cut under his right
Altogether Griffith landed more
than 20 punches without a -return_
as Paret sagged on the ropes.
Paret To Surgery
NEW YORK OP) -- Benny
(Kid) Paret, knocked out by
Emile Griffith in that nation-
lily televised world welterweight
title fight last night, was being
prepared for surgery at Roose-
velt Hospital early this morn-
ing. A spokesman for the hos-
pital said that Dr. Lawrence
Schick, neuro-surgeon, would
perform an operation on the
stricken fighter's skull to re-
lieve pressure caused by a blood
clot. "Four holes are to be
drilled," a staff doctor said.
