Celtics Defeat Hawks for NBA Crown;
Russell, Ramsey Star in 122-103 Win


By The Associated Press

BOSTON - Embattled Boston
released its fast break magic in
the scon1d period yesterday for a
122-103 victory over stubborn St.
Louis and its third National Bas-
ketball Assn. championship in four
Heavily burdened with fouls on
its big men, the Celtics found the
formula they needed in the seventh
and final game for a decisive 43-
point second quarter. Spectacular,
reserve Sam Jones tallied 12 points
and Frank Ramsey 10 in this span
while play maker Bob Cousy got

six assists and Bill Russell took
command of the back boards.
This tense drama, unfolded be-
fore a turnaway Boston Garden
crowd of 13,909 and a national
television audience, appropriately
featured the tireless Ramsey and
towering Russell.
Ramsey Stars
Russell contributed 22 points
and control of the ball while Ram-
sey's steals, breaks, passes an-
drives threw the upset-bent Hawks
off stride. Ramsey wound up with
24 points.1
Ramsey's work was fitting be-
cause he was the star of the two-
overtime, seventh game triumph
by Boston over St. Louis three
years ago when the Celtics won
their first title. On loan from the
army. Ramsey then tallied the
winning basket in a game which
established the Celtics as basket-
ball's most consistent power.

The Celtics quickly outscored

straight points.
In the final accounting, Russell
had 35 rebounds. Cousy had 14
assists to go with his 19 points.

The Other Program
MICHIGAN is fortunate in that it has two sports programs to offe
its students. One is the Varsity sports program, whose histor
includes such- legends as Yost's "point-a-minute'' teams, the swim
ming dynasty that has been built up, and the 1947-48 National Foot
ball Championship team, to mention but a few.
Second is the Intramural program whose history is every bit w
interesting as that of the better-known varsity.
The man to tell this story is Earl Riskey, director of physica
education for men. He'has been associated with I-M since 1928.
Two projects that he is presently working on brought many (
the following recollections to mind. He is making a gigantic char
which will have the names of fraternity, residence hall and inde
pendent I-M All Star selections for all sports since 1926. He expeci
to be finished in a few weeks and it will be displayed in a prominer
spot by the handball courts.
He also has plans for compiling the basketball record of eac
fraternity since 1922. The work on this chart, would be handled b
the fraternities themselves and displayed in the houpes. If this prove
successful other sports will be recorded as well a the history fo
other housing groups.
THE FIRST STORY that came to his mind was one of a young ma
who as a freshman became one of the all-time greats of I-N
history. He excelled in practically all sports. In 1938 he set the fra
ternity record for the 60 yard dash, :06.6.
Never again after his freshman year did he participate in I-1M
for he went on to make headlines in varsity football, basketbal
baseball and track. His name-Tommy Harmon.
But I-M history contains tales of men who didn't gain Harmon
fame but still gave Riskey thrills and laughs that he has yet ti
Several years ago Alpha Omega was participating in a foul shool
ing contest. At the last minute one of their men couldn't take par
So they hurriedly called the house to get a substitute. His task wa
to shoot two rounds of 25 and get scores of 24+25. If he did so thl
house would win the championship by one basket. Riskey saw hin
do just that.
Bruce Bennett, former Daily Associate Sports Editor, was bor
without any hands. Yet he still played in basketball games an
entered the foul shooting contests. Even more unusual was the fac
that he shot fouls overhand rather than underhand. The last timn
Riskey saw him in such a contest he shot two rounds of 17-25.
ANOTHER STORY concerns Riskey and George McAfee, forme
star lineman of the Chicago Bears. McAfee was one of the militar
men assisting in a conditioning program. He worked with Riskey b
giving calisthenics.
One day in the gym room McAfee asked Riskey to handle th
group himself the next day because McAfee had to go into Detroi
Riskey said he only discussed business in his office. So they bot
retired to the office, where Riskey propped his feet on the desk, lis
tened to McAfee's story and said that it would be all right for him I
go into Detroit.
A few weeks laer Riskey asked McAfee in the gym room if hi
could go to Detroit. McAffee said he only discussed business in hi
office, so off to the office they went. McAfee listened with his fe,
propped up on the desk, and then gave Riskey permission.
After that it became a running gag never to discuss anything
except in the office. Incidentally, the two of them shared the samr
office as well as the same desk.
