to go to the Rose Bowl regardless of whether it had gone the
previous year or not, is that this is a rather rare happening. l
Only twice since 1947 has a Big Ten team won the conference
title outright two straight years. The Big Ten is so competitive
that it is almost impossible for a championship team to repeat,
even.if it's just because the other teams in the league are always
up to dethrone a defending champion.
So when a team does repeat as a conference champion, it should
be rewarded instead of punished for its accomplishment. Some
people regret how important participating in the Rose Bowl hasE
become but it is now a fact that can't be ignored. A prime motivating
force in a team's drive to win the Big Ten championship is the
hope of playing in the Rose Bowl.
A Psychological Problem...,
Under the present situation, the coach of a defending champion-
ship team has a definite problem in trying to prepare his squad
psychologically for the next season. Not only does he have to guard
against swelled heads on the part of players who have played in
the Rose Bowl but the incentive of going to the game again is absent.
The Big Ten championship should be an important motivation to
winning the title and it is. But a team which has a chance to go
to the Rose Bowl has an unfair advantage in competition with
a team that is ineligible for a bowl bid.-
By striking this provision from the present agreement, a much
fairer element in 'the Big Ten's selection process could be established.
The West Coast schools don't shy away from sending the same team
to the game twice in a row as it has done two times since 1947.
It's time the Big Ten adopted the same policy.

new Cobo Arena record for re-
bounds with 37 as the Cincin-
nati Royals sprinted away from
the Detroit Pistons in the final
five minutes to score a 102-90
victory last night.
In bagging 17 rebounds in the
first half and 20 more in the sec-
ond, Lucas erased the old mark
of 34 set by Bill Russell of Bos-
ton last Jan. 2.
While Lucas was creating his
new standard, Cincinnati star Os-
car Robertson was held to only
11 points, tying his season's low.
It was only the second time in
the Royals' 46 encounters that
Robertson had failed to hit 20
or more points.
Celts Win Again
BALTIMORE - The Boston
Celtics romped to their 15th con-
secutive National Basketball As-
sociation victory last night, scor-
ing 40 points in the final period
for a 131-105 victory over the
Baltimore Bullets.
After Baltimore had battled
back from a 12-point halftime def-
icit to pull within 91-90 after
three quarters, the Celtics blew
the Bullets off the court with
their fourth period assault.
