NEW YORK - Valery Brumel,
Russia's 18-year-old high jump
whiz kid, defeated John Thomas
for the second time in as many
meetings tonight by winning the
National AAU title with a 7-2
A packed crowd of 16,243 was on
hand in Madison Square Garden
to watch the battle. Thomas went
out after missing three times at
Last week, Brumel defeated
Thomas in their first face-to-face
meeting when he soared 7-3, while
the best Thomas could do was 7-1.
Ralph Boston of Tennessee
State smashed his own indoor
broad jump record tonight by sOar-
ing 26 feet, 6% inches.
Boston's leap came with all the
drama he could muster. Until then,

Igor Ter-Ovanesyan of Russia was
leading with a leap of 26 feet even.
The slim Olympic champion and
holder of every world record sped
down the runway while the crowd
sat hushed. Up he went and when
he landed a mighty roar went up.,
Without even measuring, everyone
in Madison Square Garden knew
he had beaten Ter-Ovanesyan.,

race all the way to take the 1,000-

OLEAN, N.Y. WP)-Fired-up Ni-
agara, in one of the biggest bas-
ketball upsets of the season, end-
ed a 13-year home St. Bonaven-
ture winning streak of 99, with
an 87-77 victory last night.
Niagara knocked over the sec-
ond-ranked Bonnies attheir own
game-the lightning fast! break,
They added their own dash of
sensational accuracy-an amazing
73 per cent from the field.
After giving away a 13-peint
lead to a Bonaventure last-half
rally that looked like it might save
the day, Al Butler led a Niagara
Butler hit four jump shots out
of six Niagara baskets as the Pur-
ple Eagles re-established a nine-
point lead with 6:28 to go.
Tom Stith sparked the Bonnies
as they lashed the margin to six,
but this was the best they could
do. Niagara turned to possession
ball with three minutes to go,
and won it going away as Bona-
venture tried to come back.
Butler's tremendous, last-half
effort gave him scoring honors for
Niagara with 25. But he lost game
honors to Stith, who dumped in
33 pOints.
The loss was only the second in
22 "starts for the second-ranked
back-handed goal by York Larese

and a free throw by rookie Yogi
Poteet in the closing seconds of
overtime gave seventh-ranked
North Carolina a 69-66 victory
over Duke yesterday to win top
place in the Atlantic Coast Con-
ference regular season standings.
The regulation game ended in a
63-63 tie after Larese missed on a
long set shot with four seconds
left. ''hen, with the score tied at
66-all in overtime, Larese back-
handed the ball into the basket
for a goal with 1:04 remaining.
Forty seconds were left when Po-
teet made good on his free throw.

Cincinnati 73, No. Texas State 43
DENTON, Tex. -- Cincinnati
won its 16th straight game and
a guaranteed tie for the Missouri
Valley Conference title by whip-
ping North Texas State 73-43 here
yesterday afternoon.
The Bearcats thus ended their
Valley slate with a 10-2 record.
Bradley, also with 2 losses, is the
other Valley crown contender.
The Eagles were tied with Cin-
cinnati after eight minutes but
then collapsed before an 18-point
Bearcat scoring burst. The visitors
played three men taller than 6-
foot-8 and dominated the boards.
They grabbed 63 rebounds to 37
for the North Texans and out-
shot them from the field 40 per
cent to 28 per cent.

Cincinnati's Bob Wiesenhahn
and Paul Hogue led scoring with
15 points apiece. Ardie Dixon had
14 for North Texas.

ST. LOUIS - The Boston Cel-
tics clipped arch rival St. Louis
122-109 tonight but the rough wild
game was almost overshadowed by
two player fights, an injury to
Hawk star Bob Pettit and an egg-
throwing incident.
Pettit, who led both clubs with
31 points, suffered a twisted an-
kle in the late stages and the
Hawks said he may not make the
trip to. Cincinnati tomorrow.
Bob Cousy scored 12 points as
the Celtics took a 29-28 first period
lead. But it was speedy Sam Jones,
with a 14-point second period, who
led Boston's defending national
basketball association kings to a
63-54 halftime bulge.
Cousy was top scorer for Bos-
ton with 23 points. The Celtics
now have a 6-3 season bulge over
the Hawks with one game to go.
St. Louis has lost only 5 of 31
home games-three to the Celtics.

lain poured in 58 points yesterday
as the Philadelphia Warriors came

Philadelphia held a 63-61 half-
time lead;.
Oscar Robertson and Jack Twy-
