Closest Cage Tourney Upsets Galore Spice The 1951 basketball tourna ment Is over. So University students can go back to their classes, their activ ities, and their meeting places without fear of being completely annihilated by the prepsters. The general caliber of high school basketball was of a some what lower caliber this year, ac cording to the opinion of sports Writers and the public. There was no completely invin cible team operating this year as Kansas Begins Spring Football Most interesting experiment on KU's early spring football card will be trial of Aubrey Linville, Salina co-captain-elect, at offen sive halfback. A two-lettered end in his first two seasons with the Jayhawks, the lean speedster moved into prominence late last year at de fensive safety. He started the final three games a tthis post turning an auspicious debut against Okla homa when he hung up 24 tackle assists plus on singleton and a pass interception in the furious 13-33 loss to the Sooners here. Now with a capable crop of ends upcoming and a shortage of backs, Bossman J. V. Sikes hopes to strengthen his squad by re casting Linville. The deft wing man always has been a swift, slashing runner as a pass catcher and Sikes hopes that he can im prove enough on those qualities to plug the thin secondary ranks. Of course, he will continue at safety also. Grabs Four Playing behind Bill Schaake, the Hawkers' other co-captain for 1951, Linville flagged four passes last season for 104 yards. Playing more frequently on at tack as a sophomore in 1949, he nailed 17 tosses for 276 yards, good enought for sixth among the Big Seven receivers, while scor ing two touchdowns. - He also will act as the corner stone in a revamping of the Jay hawks' secondary defense, which was a sore spot through most of 1950. Center Merlin Gish, who led the club with 81 assists and 36 unassisted tackles last season, is returning at defensive center, and also figures to hold his job. Hal Cleavinger, Manhattan junior, will be back at right half and is expected to improve on a credit able sophomore performance. Two Regulars Gone Two other defensive backfield regulars, Linebacker Bill Mace, and Halfback Fox Cashell, are gone, the latter having enlisted in the Marines. Galon Fiss, John son fullback, and Jack Luschen, Mission guard, saw considerable action as linebackers last season, and also are in the picture. John Konek, rugged California, Pa., product, and the top all-around back off last year's freshman club, figures prominently in de fensive plans also. Sikes, and his expanded staff, will greet a herd of 77 candidates in Monday's opening practice. Edwards Signed Signing of Dan Edwards, former Georgia ail-American, brings the Jayhawker coaching corps to eleven men this spring. Edwards, an All-Pro selection last season with the New York Yankees, played under Sikes when the latter was tutoring wings at Athens. He and Dick Tomlinson, former Hawker all league guard and a professional with Pittsburgh last season, plus John Amberg ana jvwce Mcuorm ach, last year's co-captains, wiU serve only through the spring. Sikes' regular staff includes Pop Warner, line coach; Cliff Kimsey, backfield coach; Wayne Replogle, end coach; Don Fam brough, assistant coach; Dean Nesmith, trainer; Mike Getto, as sistant coach; Hub Ulrich, assist ant, and Otto Schnellbacher, as sistant Getto and Schnellbacher are part-time aides, the former serving only in the Fall. Ulrich doubles as head baseball coach and thus will not be available for spring practice. All-Star Deadline Extended Ballots for the All-Intramural basketball teams are still com ing in. Twenty-eight have been received to date. The deadline for the votes has been extended to Thursday of this week because of the delay of the All-University champion ship game caused by the Phi Del ta Theta protest All members of all teams are urged to get their votes in as soon as possible. To make the All-Star selections meaningful all 85 teams should select their all opponent teams and send them in. It is hoped, however, that at least 75 team ballots will have been received by Thursday.

But the competition was .much keener and more closely contested if seasonal records mean any thing. And this probably made up for the lack of any unde feated teams. Upsets, Upsets, Upsets Upsets have been the feature of the entire cage campaign. They started during regular season play, continued to pick up speed in the regional contests, and came to a zooming climax in the state tournament. Millard was the only favorite to come through with one of the four titles. And its team had to go all out to squelch a determined Axtell crew by a 42-37 count for the Class D crown. The Class A monarch, Fremont, continued to improved as the sea son advanced. And the Tiger reached their peak at state tour ney time. They employed a blaz ing fast break and a very ef fective stall to win their crown. David City Surprises. The Class B champs, David City, were not given a fighting chance when the state carnival began. But the Scouts complete ly upset the dope-bucket by knocking off favorites Omaha Holy Name and Lincoln Teach ers. They beat Wayne 60-55 for the B trophy. Hildreth made its move up to Class C a successful one by tak ing that league title away. The Greyhounds defeated Chappell in the final, 59-43. A few of the amazing upsets in the tourney were Newman Grove's conquest of St. Joseph's of Atkinson, the Holdrege vic tory over highly favored Pawnee City, . Lincoln High beating North Platte in the opening round, and Fremont's win in the finals over Omaha Benson. Phi Delt Protest Upheld; . Title Game Replay Ordered Maybe Sigma Phi Epsilon is the 1951 I-M fraternity "A" bas ketball champion and maybe it isn't. The trophy was taken back from the Big Eps Friday and a replay of .their .championship game with Phi Delta Theta has been ordered. The Sig Eps downed the Phi Delta in a startling upset 38-36 a week ago to cop the coveted tro phy and title, but the defeat didn't satisfy the Phil Delts. A Phil Delt protest was received and honored by the I-M Depart ment the next day and after sev eral hours deliberation a replay of the final game was ordered. The Phi Delt protest centered on a field-goal that was counted for the Sig Eps in the first quar ter. Sig Ep center Dave Brandon was in the process of shooting as the buzzer sounded ending the first canto and the referee ruled is as good. The rule concerning that episode was believed to state that if a shot was in the process of being made when the quarter ended, it would have to be coun ted as good. After the game, the rule was found out to state that the shot had to have left the shooter's hands and in the air before the end of the period or else the bas ket would not count. AROUND THE WOP...

Jayhawkers Faced Tough Competition By Shirley Murphy Kansas was the nation's only basketball team which faced America's No. 1, 2, and 3 ranked fives during the regular playing season. The Jayhawkers met Kentucky, rated tops, once; second ranked Oklahoma A & M twice, and Kansas State, rated third, twice. They won one of these engagements, the closing 37-27 victory over A & M. Coach Sparky Stalcup's 1950-51 quintet set a season record of 16 wins and 8 losses giving him his best mark over a five-year hitch at Mizzou. They also set two scoring highs in the final high point tabulations. Bud Heineman, smallish lefthander, put one entry in the record books by flipping 283 points through the hoop for a modern single-season scoring effort. The Tigers rubbed out another point peak as a team by collecting a 1251 point total. When Frank Marks, Oklahoma's sophomore 167-pound wrestler pinned Husker Al Johnson in 21 seconds with a double arm lock, he set an all-time record for achieving the fastest fall ever scored in the Oklahoma fieldhouse. Russ Thomas, "Athlete of the Week" at Iowa State received the honor because he swam away from all competition in three dis tance events and paddled to first plac. This is the first time Thomas has received the title and the sophonore flash deserved it Sooners Start Spring Cage I Drills Soon Without waiting for the consent of Congress, Coach Bruce Drake of Oklahoma will draft 18-year olds when Sooner spring basket ball drills start in Norman short ly.
