ST. MARY'S WINS ST. CATHOLIC TITLE Resume Of All The Tournament Games The first Illinoi s State Catholic High School Basketball Tournamen t opened in the St. Viator College gymnasium at 7:30 o'clock on the evening of Friday, March 2nd . A large crowd of spectators attended. The g ymnasium was beautifully decora ted for the event and a. truly metropoli tan , en~ thusiastic a tmosphere -. w.&.s provided for the event by the very nature of the occasion, a nd by th e large crowd and well appoi nted gymnasium. St. Joseph's Academy Wins From Visitation High In the first game, five diminutive stars representing St. J oseph's Academy of Philo defeated the Vis:itation High School tea m of Kewanee, Ill. The game was quite close from start to finish, but the game little fighters from Philo held to the lead throughout the game. The Individual star of the game was Eddie O'Neil of Philo, but he was closely · pressed for honors by hls cousin, C. O'Neil. The victory for Philo was not only the first game of the tournament, but it was also the firs t up-set of the event. Little or nothing waa known about the· Philo squad, but the very fact. that .there are only eleven boys in the St. Joseph Academy of that city seemed to indicate that the team would not survive the first game. Visitation, a school with a noteworthy record, apparently thought they bad a set-up until they finally awakened to the fact that they were trailing on the short end of a pretentious score. The O'Neil boys displayed remarkable accuracy from every angle on the floor. Although small In size, and unlettered in the finer points of the game, the victors guarded well, displayed fine sportsmanship, and 'chucked' every minute of the game. From the conclusion of the first half, until the very last game of the Tournament, the Philo team was the most popular team In the tournament. The box score: St Joseph's Philo (21) FG FT TP B.

In a ga me marked by the brilliant pla ying of Copt. John Ca llans and the clever floor work of Dugan, St. Mary~s of Bloomington won the right to r epresent the state of !11inois a t the National Catholic Tournament a t Loyola. St. Ma ry's beat Spalding Institute of Peoria main ly because of the clever defense built around Calla ns to smother the scoring efforts of Voegle, the ace of the P eoria team. Spalding leaped into the lead at the start of the game an d at one time led 7 to 2. Sweeney finally broke the ice with a long toss and the Bloomington entry began to function in their real form. Callans covered Voegele like the figurative rug and at the half St. Mary's held a one point lead. In the second half the superior eondillon of the Saints and the bard schedule of the Spalding team began to show. Still using the tight defense and adopting a fast-breaking offense the Champs Increased the lead. Spaid. ing tried hard to overtake the Saints but here again Cal1ans proved hls value. For the whole last quarter St. Mary's loafed away the preciou• mln· utes and when the occasion presented itself broke down the court for a shot that was usually good. Voegle finally

In one of the fastest and most thrilling games of the tournament, St. Viator defeated Routt High School, 17 to 13. The game was played at whirlwind speed throughout, and it provided more excitement than a ny game in the tournament. This victory was truly an accomplishment for the home crew. The Routt men were not up to the standard which they had shown a~rainst St. Bede's, but they nevertheless made Viator work hard for the victory. Viato r started the scoring, a nd held a small lead throughout the ga me. Brouillette was the big gun in the Viator charge.

Despite the fact that the score ~I this game won.ld indicate that it was a set-up for St. Mary's, everyone wh" saw the Philo team play in the two forme r games will contend that, it th.e team had played in this game as it played before, St. Mary's victory would not have come so easily.
