St. Louis Edges Dayton, 67-60

Late Goal Evens Playoff for Chicago

the overtime and it gave Provi-
dence an edge it never lost.
John Egan dropped in another
basket to boost Providence's lead
to 81-75. Then Jack Foley hit
two for Holy CCross to narrow the
margin by two points but Ernst
was fouled as he drove in for a
shot and put in two free throws.
Egan Connects
Egan connected on a 3-point
play, then the final field goal to
wind up the game.
Hadnot, although he made a
good many mistakes and missed
several shots, had the height that
was invaluable to Providence un-
der the basket. He scored 25
points, second to Egan's 29. Foley
topped all scorers, however, with
31.
Providence went out to an early
lead but the Crusaders caught up
after ' about 12 minutes. From
there on the score was tied three
times and- each team took the
lead twice before the half ended
with Providence in front 43-39.
Friars on Top
Early in the second half, Ernst
and Hadnot shot Providence into
an 8-point lead at 53-45. At that
point it looked as if the Friars
had the game wrapped up.
But Holy Cross, which earned
its tournament invitation by beat-
ing Providence in the last game
of the regular season, refused to
give up.
Never more than four points
back, the Crusaders tied it up with
only a few seconds remaining on
a basket by George Blaney. Then
Ernst was fouled on the final
play of the regular time but miss-
ed the free throw to send the.
game into the extra period.

BOSTON (JP)-The Boston Cel-l

tics, their attack once again in
gear, rolled oyer Syracuse 133-110
last night and took a 2-1 lead in

Johns ton Calls It Quits

As Philadelj
PHILADELPHIA (R) -- Neil
Johnston resigned yesterday as
coach of the Philadelphia War-
riors in the National Basketball
Association.
He said it was best for all con-
cerned, but he didn't say why.
:Johnston submitted his resig-
nation to Eddie Gottlieb, owner of
the team, at a brief meeting with
Gottlieb.
Gottlieb said he did not try to
dissuade Johnston, who, has
coached the Warriors to two sec-
ond place finishes in the NBA.
"I simply accepted his resigna-
tion," Gottlieb said. "It was all
very friendly. We had a pleasant
talk. I did not know he was going
to resign, but I was not surprised.
A few- days ago he said he wanted
to talk things over with me and I
suspected something then."
Johnston ended an outstanding
playing career as center for the

phia Mentor
Warriors to become coach of the
team two years ago. Last- season
the Warriors were eliminated by
Boston in the Eastern Division
playoffs. Last week Syracuse de-
feated Philadelphia 3-0 in a best-
of-five series to determine which
of the teams would meet Boston
for the Eastern Division title..
"It is best for all concerned that
I retire at this time," Johnston
said. "It's been coming since last'
year, actually. I felt the situation
would improve this year and it
didn't. If it had I might have
stayed, I think, but I'm not sure.
I wasn't very happy this year."
But Johnston steadfastly refus-
ed to elaborate on "the situation"
or to give any further inkling of
his feelings. He said he did not
want to put any blame on anyone,
adding that the decision was en-
tirely his own.

ning the first playoff game and
dismal in the second game defeat
at Syracuse. It was Boston all the
way last night.
The Celtics rushed to a 12-4
lead and took it from there. The
Nats stayed close until Boston put
together a 42-point third quarter.'
That was it.
The Nats, who swept three
straight from Philadelphia in a
preliminary playoff, simply never
caught up.
Boston led all the period stops,
35-27, 66-52 -and 108-81.
The closest Syracuse came was
four points backat 56-52but Bos-
ton retaliated with 10 straight
points. The Celtics put six men
in double figures, led by old pro
Bill Sharman. Playing one of his
better games, Sharman led the at-
tack with 30 points.
Tops for Syracuse were Dolph
Schayes with 18, and Dick Barnett
22. .
Bill Russell, the Celt's defensive
ace who had played the entire
game collapsed five minutes from
the end. Russell didn't appear;- to
have been struck or shoved. just
suddenly sank to the floor. He was
led from the floor and did not'play
any more.
It was a bruising battle in the
back court with Boston veterans
Sharman and Bob Cousy having a
slight edge. Cousy, held to one field
goal in the first half, finished with
17 points. Barnett and Larry Cos-
tello had 33 between them.
The series shifts to Syracuse for
the fourth game tomorrow after-
noon.

The Canadiens, who won the
regular season champloiship on
the last night of the campaign,
defeated the Hawks -6-2 in the
opener of the, series Tuesday
night.
The series shifts to Chicago for
the third game Sunday night. The
fourth also will be played in Chi-
cago Tuesday night.
Mikita opened the scoring at
9:02 of the second stanza with a
12-footer that beat Montreal goal-
ie Jacques Plante while the Cana-
diens werp shorthanded. Whar-
ram made it 2-0 at 13:18 as Plante
was drawn out of position.
Hull converted; Bill Hay's re-
bound with Plante flat on the ice
for a 3-2 Chicago edge that was
short-lived when Goyette slap-
ped in his own rebound midway
in the finale, scoring on Hall's far
side'
