TranscriptWriter Gives Salukis An Incentive To Trump Evansville College Aces

By Joe Cook

If the basketball Salukis needed an extra incentive to beat Hvansville College twice this year, they needed only to have read an article by Ray Villwock in Sunday's Evansville Courier and Press.
Villwock listed State University of Iowa and Purdue University as the Aces' most formidable opponents.
He went on to say "at least a half dozen teams appear capable of beating Evansville on a given night. Iowa is far and away the most dangerous foe with Purdue, Toledo, Kent State, Marquette and Kentucky Wesleyan having the best chance to blotch the Evansville record.
"Indiana State, Valparaiso, DePauw, Indiana University and St. Joseph's all could give Evansville trouble in repeating as Indiana Collegiate Conference champions.
"But while these teams are capable of-giving Evansville trouble on preseason forms, only one can be rated a favorite over the Aces, Iowa."
No mention was given to Southern's chances of upsetting the Aces.
Southern leads in the series IQ-IK despite losing three close ones last year. The Salukis, however, will have to wan awhile for their first meeting with the Aces. The teams will meet in Evansville Jan. 19 and then here Feb.26.
Another capacity crowd for Evansville appears very likely.
Individual tickets have been on sale only for a little over a week and already most of the chair seats opposite the student side have been sold.
According to ticket sales, the Wichita State University game Dec. 20 is the second most popular game.
UCLA, which has won the NCAA basketball championship for the last two years, and is a preseason favorite to repeat this year, was embarrassed Saturday night.
The Bruins played their own freshman team and were soundly trounced" 75-60.
Freshman Lew Alcindor, who stands 7 feet 1 inch, proved he is quite a basketball giant as he established a game high of 31 points.
The Salukis were shut out again—this time in the college football draft that was held in New York last weekend.
None of the nine graduating seniors from this year's team were selected by any of the National or American Football League teams.
In contrast, some of Southern's opponents did quite well, especially the University of Tulsa, which had four players
drafted by the two leagues.
Golden Hurricane selections included all-America end Howard Twilley by the new Miami AFL team; center John Osmond by the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs of the AFL; guard Rich Tyson of t;he Los Angeles Rams of the NFL and the Oakland Raiders of the AFL; and tackle Willie Townesy who was drafted as a future by the Dallas Cowboys of the NFL.
the University of Louisville had three players drafted linebacker Doug Buff one by the Chicago Bears of the NFL and the San Diego Chargers of the AFL; defensive tackle Charles Johnson by the San Francisco 49ersofthe NFL; and halfback Al MacFarlane by the Buffalo Bills of the AFL.
