The victory shot Davey to the top among welterweight challeng- ers for the championship. The battle, scheduled for ten rounds, was halted by Referee Wil- liam Doty with the former 135 pound champion staggering and unable to defend himself under Davey's relentless two-fisted at- tack. Williams was on the verge of falling to the floor of the ring when Referee Doty waved Davey to his corner as the winner. Davey is undefeated in 32 pro- fessional bouts. j I Williams was a pathetic sight 'as the Michigan State graduate battered him into helplessness.

Illinois edged Santa Clara in the consolation game, 67-84. The rampaging Kansas never let St. John's make a race of it, lead- ing from the first point to the last. Lovellette, who set the NCAA tourney scoring mark Tuesday night, added 16 points to his three- game total of 108 in the first half Wednesday and 17 in the second. The 80 points was a new high for the title game, beating by nine the total posted by New York City College in 1950. Redmen Never Quit St. John's never quit trying in the fast, rough battle, but Lovel- lette's power on the backboards was too much for the Redmen from Brooklyn.
