Oregon's Frosh Triumph
EUGENE (AP) The Univers

Oregon Stale Rooks 70-64 in Fri
day night's basketball finale for
both teams. The Frosh victory
evened the season's series be
tween the schools at two games

Floyd .Patterson Remembers Vividly
Johansson's Terrific Right Hand
feeling seems almost general at
this resort area that Floyd Pat
terson ran almost name the round
in which he'll blast Ingemar Jo
hansson in their third heavy-weight
title fight Monday night.
The expressions of solid confi
dence in the re-crowned champi
on's flashing fists is strikingly rem
iniscent of the aura of invincibil
ity that seemed to surround Pat
terson before his first fight with
the Swedish invader in 1959.
There are several exceptions to
this feeling of overconfidence this
time, and notably Patterson him
self. "I remember vividly what hap
pened in that first fight," said
Patterson. "Ingemar has a terri
ic right and who should know bel
ter than mc? I respect him great
ly" Floyd became the first dethron
ed heavyweight king ever to re
gain the title when he flattened
Johansson in the fifth round last
The third fight will be the last
in the series, said Floyd.
"I wouldn't want a return if I
lost." he said. "There are other
contenders who have been waiting
a long time. The loser should step
back and give the other contend
ers a chance."
Asked if he would fight Snnnv
t.iston, the No. 1 contender from
Philadelphia, if he beats Johans
son. Patterson replied: "Sure I II
fight Liston. But he'd have to get
rid of some of tlie people around
him "
The champion declined to name

teams with identical records

the Chancellor's Cup for the first
time since the trophy was put up
in 1953 by the head of the state
System of Higher Education. It
goes annually to the team that
wins the season series.
The Friday night game at Eu
gene was exciting throughout,
Oregon led through most of it but
in the fading minutes the Beavers
caught up.
With one Oregon regular out on
fouls and three others on the
edge with four, field goals by Bill
Wold and Jim Woodland and
Woodland's free throw tied it.
Oregon took the ball with 30

elgated to second position in the
Sunset Six League behind the Myr
tle Point Bobcats. However, tlie
Red Devils won both outings with
Myrtle Point to win the league
crown and the right to represent
District 4-A-2 in the tourney. The
Red Devils are another team that
relies on speed to win games as
they lack height.
Representing District 8-A-2 in
tlie tournament will be Mt. Angel,
making its first appearance on the
state A-2 scene. Mt. Angel had
anything but an easy go in earning
a berth in the state tourney as
it had to face top competition
from Gervais, Serra Catholic and
the number four rated team in
the state, Woodburn.
Seaside Competes
Seaside's Gulls also had a rough
go of it to make tlie tourney scene
facing such top rated teams as
Neah-Kah-Nie, Estacada and Clats

The Gulls will enter the action
as the champs from District l-A-2.
Among the eight teams repre
sented at Coos Bay. the only team
that competed last year is Reeds
port. Obvious by their absence are
the powerful quintets from Myrtle
Creek, Vale, St. Francis, Willa
mina, Myrtle Point and Clatska

in the tournament this year have
ever won a state crown in the five
years of state A-2 tournaments.
