Bradley, St. ,Johns

FOUR years ago to the day, the University of Chicago
' " formally withdrew from the Western Conference due to inability
"to provide reasonable equality of competition," which left the Big Ten
short one member.
Less than a year ago Michigan State college was admitted to mem-
bership, to fill out the Conference once again. Next season, with the
- exception of football, State officially competes in Big Ten athletics,
and it should be interesting to see how well they do in the country's
toughest league.
I'* * * * -
THE WINTER SPORTS are over for another season and State
competed against every Conference team-in one sport or another-
as an outsider for the last time. Some predictions might be made from
citing how well the Spartans faired against the Conference teams
which they met this year.
It looks like State is going to be more than able to hold its own
in track, fencing, boxing, and swimming. The Spartans went unde-
feated in the first three of these sports, and lost only to the present
Conference Champion, Ohio State, in dual swimming meets.
This record is good to say the least, but doesn't tell the whole story.
State ran in only one dual track meet, against Ohio State, and won
67-47. Outside the Conference they won the IC4A and CCC meets. In
fencing the Spartans beat Ohio State, Northwestern, and Wisconsin,
and tied Illinois. Minnesota was the only school to furnish boxing
competition for State and the Gophers lost, 5-3.
Minnesota, Indiana, Michigan, Purdue, and Iowa all lost to the
Spartan swimming team, which was defeated only by the Buckeyes.
IN TWO of the major sports, as far as Michigan fans are concerned
anyway, the Spartans couldn't win a thing. They lost ten straight
basketball games, at least one to every Conference team except the
Illinois squad which wasn't scheduled.
In hockey State entered a team for the first time since 1930,
and again were unable to wind up on the long end of any score.
The Spartans lost to Minnesota four times and to the Wolverines
twice, all by quite lop-sided margins.
In the two remaining winter sports, wrestling and gymnastics,
State finished with a fifty-fifty record. They lost three and won three
in wrestling and split eight in gymnastics but nevertheless were strong
in both.
The strength of the wrestling team is indicated by the fact
that the Spartans beat the Conference Champion, Purdue, 16-11,
early in the season, and then in a rematch lost by only one point
to the Boilermakers.
The four losses in gymnastics included three to the Big Ten pow-
ers, Michigan, Illinois, and Minnesota, and all were by close margins of
eight points or less.
THE OVER-ALL won-and-lost total shows the Spartans with 16
wins and 23 losses against Conference opponents this year; more
than two-thirds of these defeats coming in basketball and hockey.
Put all these past performance records into the crystal ball,
shake well, and stir slowly. Result: State will not be a doormat in
any sport next year, and could cop at least one major-sport
championship, and one minor-sport championship in its first year
of competition.
At the present time, then, it looks as if the Spartans will be able
to provide."the reasonable equality of competition" which Chicago was
unable to.

Braves Win
In Rough Tilt
NEW YORK-dP)--The Red-
men from St. John's of Brook-
lyn spurted in the last 13 min-
utes last night to score a 69-60
victory over Western Kentucky
in the National Invitation Bas-
ketball Tournament at Madison
Square Garden.
NEW YORK-(P)-Bradley Uni-
versity's speedy Braves put on 'the
pressure in the last eight minutes
last night to eliminate Syracuse
University from the National In-
vitation Basketball Tournament,
78 to 66.
W * * k
Bradley, voted the nation's No. 1
college team in the Associated
Press nation-wide poll and the
tournament's top-seeded team,
thus went into Thursday night's
semi-finals. The Braves will meet
the winner. of last night's second
game, between St. John's of
Brooklyn and Western Kentucky.
A sellout crowd of 18,000 in
Madison Square Garden envi-
sioned an upset as Syracuse,
coming from behind, took the
lead in a slam-bang first half,
only to give it up just before the
intermission buzzer. Bradley'
little Gene Melchiorre sank a
field goal and a free throw in
the last 15 seconds of the half
to put his club ahead, 40-39.
Five players fouled out of the
rough contest, and several others
had four personals called on them
at the finish. The big blow to Sy-
racuse came when 6-6 center Ed
Miller went out with five fouls
midway in the second half.

This figure equals the national re-
cord established a year ago by the
Riley brothers, Joe and Billy, of
Inasmuch as the Riley mark
includes the NCAA playoff
games, Garrity has a golden op-
portunity of setting a new na-
tional record at the Colorado
Spring's games.
Garrity, one of the outstanding
centers of the East, performed
with the AHA team two winters
l ago while Eddie Cahoon played
with the Olympic team three years
ago. Jack Kelley completes the
trio of Boston University Olym-

honors while Bevins sports a 2.6
