San Francisco, Loyola in Finals

Bowling Green Loses;
Bradley Stopped_55-50B

NEW YORK - (P) - Scrappy
San Francisco snapped Bowling
Green's imposing winning streak,
49 to 39, and Loyola of Chicago
turned back hard-driving Brad-
ley University, 55 to 50, last night
to push into the finals of the
National Invitation Basketball
Both went into the titular round
the hard way, having to play and
win three games. Loyola, a "rain
check" team invited purely as ait
afterthought, had to dispose of
Kentucky, the nation's top-rank-
ing team, 67 to 56, in the quarter-
f inals.
2SC Coach
Off on Trip
To Oregon St.
EAST LANSING, Mich., March
17-(AP)-Michigan State College's
backfield coach Forrest Evashevski
was reportedly flying to Oregon
today to talk over the possibility
that he might take the head
coaching job at Oregon State.
Ralph young, MSC's athletic
director, said he didn't know
whether the Spartan coach was
going to Corvallis, Oregon.
'But, United Airlines officials at
Detroit said Evashevski and his
wife left on a plane from Willow
Run Airport this afternoon bound
for Portland, Oregon.
Evashevski said earlier in the
week that he would take a trip out
to Oregon State if developments
convinced him it would be worth-
while to make an on-the-spot
check of the coaching job.
The former Michigan blocking
back. reportedly has an inside
track for the Oregon State foot-
ball job which is now vacant.

TOWERING Bowling Green,
winner of 15 straight and con-
queror of defending champion St.
Louis in last Monday's quarter-
finals, ruled a five-point favorite
in tonight's game.
The twin bill brought 18,301
paying spectators to Madison
Square Garden, surprising New
Yorkers who figured the absence
of the favored teams would
cause the crowds to fall off.
It was the biggest crowd of the
tournament to date.
The odds-makers failed to reck-
on with the phenomenal one-hand
push shot owned by one, Don Lof-
gran, San Francisco's wiry, curly-
haired forward.
* * *
pushed 24 points through the hoop
to completely subdue the big Ohio
team that had been favored for
the championship after Monday's
wave of upsets.
Lofgran, with the ease of a
boy dropping apples into a wash
tub, shoed in 10 field goals, hit-
ting the basket from all angles.
He also made four free throws.
Bowling Green's giant "tip in"
specialist-six-foot-eleven Chuck
Share-scored 20 points, but was'
able to hit for only six field goals.
Mac Otten, his six-foot-six mate,
was held to one field goal, that
early in the second half.
San Francisco prevailed mostly
on scrap and hustle. The Dons
repeatedly stole the ball from their
bigger adversaries, intercepted the
enemy's passes and outfought
them in the scrambles off the
The West Coastaboys stepped off
to a 31-22 lead at the half and
then almost dissipated it with an
eight-minute lapse at the begin-
ning of the last session.
San Francisco made only six
field goals after intermission, four
of these by Lofgran.

So Tired...
-The New York Yankees and
Detroit Tigers battled to a 17
inning, 2-2 tie in a spring ex-
hibition game here today.
The contest, which lasted
four hours and 24 minutes be-
fore being halted by darkness,
matched an equally long game
between the Yanks and Boston
Red Sox last spring.
The Tigers were outhit, 11 to
7, but after they scored in the
top of the seventh the two
clubs couldn't come close to
getting a run across.

Four Michigan hockey stars

THERE WERE twelve men se-

The Wolverines were again

his team on top. The Dartmouth

Dartmouth was well on its way to
the greatest upset of the year in
collegiate hockey circles.

Coast Track Meet Arranged
For Michigan State and MSC
EAST LANSING--(/)-Michigan State and Southern California,
generally regarded as the nation's two top track powers, will clash
in a dual meet at the Los Angeles Coliseum April 16 it was announced
The announcement was made jointly by MSC athletic director
Ralph H. Young and Willis O. Hunter, Southern California director.

the trip.
The Spartans are ranked as national indoor champions as the
result of their smashing victory in the IC4A meet in New York
against the best eastern competition. They also ran away with the
