Arguments Rage Over Which Team

By JIM BECKER
AP Newsfeatures Sports writer
NEW YORK Those baby-faced
kids from St. Louis U. have whiz
ied through the east again, leaving
gasping basketball experts in their
Tiiey also left behind one of
those Michigan-Notre Dame type
kof arguments you hear during the
football season. The "other team"
in this case is Kentucky, which
did a little whizizng of its own in
the east on an earlier occasion this
Now the rhubarbs are really
raffing over which is the better
basketball team. The discus
sions are enhanced by the fart
that the two teams already have
met once and seem almost cer
tain to tangle again before the
season is out.
St. Louis won the first encounter.
42-40, at New Orleans. But instead
of settling the issue, the match only
heated up the controversy. Wild
cat partisans have a raft of ex
planations for the narrow defeat.
Kentucky had a flat second half,
they point out, scoring only 13
points, Wah Wah Jones couldn't
hit the backboard with a handful
of rocks. Jones is oae of the team's

Louis Or Kentucky
By Marvin (Kevin) Schatzman.
However, around here most of
the experts, although they hold
both in high esteem, seem to lean
toward Kentucky despite the de
feat. They seem to find it difficult to
rate St. Louis, with its fleet little
new of athletes that look like choir
boys, over the poised, older and
more experienced Kentuckians.
It is believed that even if the
' precocious Billikens hung an
other on the chins of Adolph
Rupp's boys, the experts would j
still consider Kentucky a sounder '
They're about as hard to con-1
vince as a West coast football coach j
who once had a Rose Bowl bid j
practically in his pocket until his j
team went out and blew a game to !
a small independent school. j
The coach had been warned to ;
watch the small school and he had 1
retorted, "I'll eat my hat of we lose '
!o them." He ate his hat, literally,
and it tasted so lousy he demanded
a return game which he lost, too.
The coach was out of headgear,
i but he still wasn't convinced.
The logic of these unbudging ex
perts is that the Kentucky team

It's swell to be a Catamount,"
relates little Bob McGinn. "They're
really good to you." By this the
11-Siate forward of the Western
Carolina Teachers Catamounts re
fers to the players, coaches, stu
dents, and John Q. Public in gen
eral. Not only is everyone good to
McGinn, the "Ace" is also good to
'veryone. He gives them the thrills

noney for when they overflow
Bi'ccso gymnasium to see the Cata
mounts in action. The little five-'ool-eighl-ineh
ball hawk is the
sparkplug of Tuck McConncll's
North State Conference dark-
His sparkling antics on the hard
woods take the fans' minds off the
'iall game and causes them to con
centrate on McGinn.
Al hall'time in the Cats' home
games the crowd swamps the scor
ers' desk inquiring about him.
"How many points has he scored?"
t the end of the game it's the
same way. "What-about McGinn?
What about Tate?" Bob Tate, in
cidentally, is McGinn's running
mate. Combined they make one
of the deadliest sharpshooting com
binations the North State Confer
ence has ever known. They are
feared by coaches and players
alike. Last year the duo was
the lop few scorers of the loop,
both were named to the forward
positions on the All-North State
team and McGinn went on to gain
Mi-Stale honors along with Dick
Dickey of the N. C. State Wolf
pack. The "Ace" hails from Lexington,
where he played high school ball
for Coach Tom Young, now head
roach at Western Carolina. After
iiaduation in 1941 he enrolled in
,'Iigh Point College, where he stay
ed nine months before enlisting in
I lie Coast Guard for four years
during the war.
When hostilities ceased, Mc
Ginn came home, and selected
VV.C.T.C. as the institution in which
o further his education. And that
was a lucky day for W.C.T.C. as
well as for McGinn.

In his first season, 1946-47, he
helped the Cats, then under the
lulorship of wily little Marion Mac-
kens earned tremendous ovations
from the Garden crowd for their
competence as they demolished
But if Kentucky can't pass with
St. Louis, the Wildcats certainly
can shoot rings around the Mis
souri Valley team. The Billikens
lack on outside shot, with the pos
sible exception of Schatzman. who
hasn't been hitting from way out
this season as he did last. Ken
tucky, on the other hand, has five
or six players who are dead shots
from about 25 feet out.
In conjunction with the "best
team" argument, cage fans have
gathered in the respective corners
of the marvelous centers of the
two teams Groza and Macauley.
In this debate, St. Louis has an
edge. No one seems to hold a gripe
against Macauley despite his
Easy Ed, which is a rare sports
nickname because it really fits,
calmly perforins the most fantastic
feats on the court. He possesses a
wonderful hook shot and a fine
one-handed set, and can really
score if he wants to. But it is as
! a "quarterback" on the pivot, pass-
ing off and decoying, that he really
! Is the master.
Macauley is usually double
teamed, leaving another player at
least partially open. He is un
canny at spotting this loose team
mate and passing off for a bucket.
