In Finals of NIT Tourney

By The Associated Press
NSING-Lansing Sexton put
nother of its dazzling come-
shows last night and just
aged to retain its Class A
etball title with a 60-56 vic-
over Pontiac Central.
e Big Reds, trailing early by
ints, fought back and weren't
ed of their fourth state title
the final minute of play;.
Repeat Hero
was Bob Davis, hero of Sex-
1959 80-79 overtime victory
Hamtramck, who insured tri-
b again last night.
,vis calmly sank four free
ws in the final 40 seconds,
it was his superb jump-shoot-
ind all-around floor play that
talled an upset.
e Big Reds never went into
lead until late in the third
ter when Brian Ferguson sent
i ahead on a Jump shot.
en each team took turns surg-
in front until midway in the
period. Ferguson, Davis, Doug
er and Howie Miller got Sex-
ahead to stay with 6:20 left.
i there on down to the frantic
moments, Pontiac stayed on
on's heels.

Skyscraping Bill Chmielewski
carried a polished Detroit Holy
Redeemer outfit to the Class B
State High School Championship
yesterday with a fancy shooting
display in a 78-60 victory over
Grand Rapids Godwin Heights.
The agile, 6-foot-10 star was the
offensive, defensive and rebound-
ing standout as Redeemer cap-
tured its first state crown. He
scored 32 points-Just three short
of the Class B championship game
record -- batted away numerous
Godwin shots and yanked in 18
Couldn't Match Height
Redeemer broke in front in the
early minutes and controlled the
action throughout the game, al-
though Godwin provided lome
anxious moments in the third
But the smaller Godwin players
just couldn't handle the Lions,
who averaged a towering 6-foot-5.
Redeemer, which moved the ball
adroitly and shot at a 42 per cent
clip, pushed to a 48-35 lead mid-
way in the third quarter. Godwin
made its last gasp in the next

six minutes, entering the fourth
period behind 54-51.
Chmielewski pitched in two free
throws and a couple of jump shots
and Redeemer broke out to a safe
66-54 margin.
Bangor's band of jump-shooting
artists snapped out of the dol-
drums in the fourth quarter and
crushed Grand Rapids Lee 57-45
yesterday for the Class C State
Basketball title.
After dissipating an early eight-
point lead, Bangor reeled off nine
straight points at the start of the
final period. Lee, which had bat-
tled back to tie the score at 41-all
at the third period buzzer, wasted
half the fourth quarter before
finding scoring range.
Scoring Duel
The game was marked by a
superb scoring and rebounding
duel between Bangor's 6-foot-4
Pete Gent and Lee's 6-foot-5 Doug
Greenwold. Greenwold won scoring
honors with 27 points on 12 field
goals and three free throws.
But Gent was instrumental in
pulling Bangor to its first state
championship. He scored 21 points

with an outstanding display of
jump shooting.
It was the third straight year
Western Michigan claimed Class
C supremacy. Muskegon Christian
won the title in 1958 and Kala-
mazoo Christian took the title
back to the western part of the
state last year.
Gary Morrill hit with a close-in
jump shot with 23 seconds left to
give Bath the Class D High School
Basketball Titles yesterday in a
surprising 61-59 win over Baraga.
Bath, a little rural school just
outside Lansing,bsurprised every-
one by coming back to beat the'
favored Upper Peninsula team.
Baraga had some excellent
jump-shot artists and hit six of
its first seven shots to run to a
commanding 23-13 lead at the end
of the first period. The lead was
36-26 at the half.
Bangor, which finished with a
24-1 record, opened a 20-12 lead
early in the second quarter before
Lee started whittling away. The
blue-clad rebels pulled within two
points and then Gent hit on a
jumper for Bangor's 31-27 half-
time margin.

NEW YORK (I--Classy Brad-

minutes left, swept back with a
brilliant rally yesterday and won
its second National Invitation
Basketball Tournament in four
years with a 88-72 victory over
pesky Providence.

Scores In Final Minutes
A badly beaten, sour-shooting
team until the closing minutes,
with Chet Walker playing only
sporadically, the'Bradley Braves
outscored Providence 38-10 in the
last 10 minutes.
With 5:21 left, Walker came
back into the game after having
played only 11 minutes until then.
Providence still held a 66-62 lead
after blowing a 62-50 advantage
with ,10 minutes remaining.
Walker Scores
Big Chet. who has been ill since
shortly after he drank a glass of
orange juice Thursday, was just
the shot in the arm Bradley need-
ed. Within the next 2 minutes
he grabbed four big rebounds and
scored on a three-point play while
the Braves started their rush.
Two free throws by Johnny.
Egan made it 70-67 for Provi-
dence with 4:23 to play and then
the Rhode Island team wilted.
Four free throws by Al Saun-
ders pushed Bradley into its first
lead of the game 71-70 and the
top-seeded club quickly made it
a rout by outscoring the Friars
21-2 the rest of the way.
Utah Tops Bonnies
in the consolation game Utah
State fell 9 points behind St.
Bonaventure before discovering a
big opening in the Bonnies' close-
in defense. Then Schofield and
Green went to work.
Greene's 3-point play with six
seconds left gave the Aggies' a 48-
45 halftime lead and they broke it
wide open midway of the second
BOSTON, (P)-A restriction
on Canadians playing intercol-
legiate hockey in the United
States was recommended yes-
terday by the American College
Hockey Coaches Assn.
The action was taken on a
19-5 vote.
The coaches recommended
that Canadians who play in
Leagues with salary limits be
restricted in U.S. collegiate
play. The proposal now goes
to the NCAA ice hockey rules
committee for final decision.

The Bonnies got 29 points from
Tom Stith and 19 from 'brother
Sam. But Tom was lax on defense
around the basket.
Tom, a 6-5 Junior, wound up
with 114 points in four tourna-
ment games, 10 below the record
for fourgames of 124 set by Mau-
rice Stokes of St.; Francis (Pa.)
in 1954. Sam had 103 points.
Wilkens, voted the tournament's
most valuable player award, had
25 points before fouling out in the
late minutes.
Egan had 20, and between them,
and the good board play of 6-10
Jim Hadnot, it looked for a long
time as if Bradley was going to be
a beaten finalist for the second
straight year.
The Braves, after winning the
NIT in 1957, were top-seeded last
year when they lost to unseeded
St. John's (NY) in an overtime
With Wilkens and Egan driving
smoothly and well against the
touted Bradley press, Providence
slammed into a 37-29 halftime
lead, cooled off while Bradley tied
it 37-37 in the early minutes of
the second half.
American Oscar Robertson re-
gained his scoring touch last
night to tally 32 points, pacing
