Obviously missing the ' steady hand of the Injured Oscar Robertson in the late going, the Royals committed every ball-handling mistake in the book to give the 76ers a chance for a rousing comeback finish. The culprit on two occasions was Jerry Lucas, who lost the ball into Philadelphia hands on plays that were converted into fast-break goals. On that Impetus, the 76ers went ahead, 99-98, fell behind with 2:18 on Adrian Smith's jumper, then bucketed six more points before Arlen Bock-horn and Lucas finished out the scoring. The Royals had a chance to tie the score 32 seconds after Lucas' points. However, Jack Twyman was called for an offensive foul with 13 seconds to go. Just before that, coach Jack McMahon, who was on his feet most of the game complaining to and about officials Earl Strom and Joe Oushue, tried to get a time out. None of the Royals caught his signal, then Twyman lost the ball on a charge call. For the Royals, also playing without backcourt reserve Tom Thacker, who injured an ankle Friday night, Lucas was high with 21 points. He pulled down Celtics Coast For Ninth In Row, 130-113 BOSTON (UPD The ; ;-tmdefeated Boston Celtics, controlling both back-ci boards, built a 20-point lead "Jn the first half then Sjcoasted to their ninth straight ' victory.

He played 23 minutes, had 22 points and nine rebounds, before fouling out with 7:48 to go. His all-round play helped chop away at a 14-point lead the Royals built midway through the third period. At one point, the 6-9 rookie from Pan-American All Scoring In Last 5 Minutes Awakened Muskies Flip Flyers, BY BILL ANZER Of The Enquirer Staff DAYTON, Ohio Xavler fought off three periods of frustration in a fiasco-filled football game with Dayton Flyers Saturday before a titanic struggle back to glory gained the Muskies a 12-7 victory. But for Dayton, which has been plagued with the misery of losing so often it doesn't know how to act in the face of prosperity, this loss marked their top flop of the year. With 5:02 left in the game, witnessed by a stunned audience of 11,068, the Flyers awakened their lethargic fans with an apparent game-winning TD drive. The Flyers Marty Coates leaped over a pile of Muskie musclemen at the goal line from the one to spiral Dayton in front, 7-0, following Rick Winkler's perfect extra-point kick. But, what followed In the ensuing five minutes was simply amazing. The Muskies took the ensuing kickofr and turned It into a 64-yard TD production to Ignite the come-from-behlnd spectacle. After moving to Dayton's 36-yard line, XU coach Ed Biles inserted quarterback Of Kentucky's Davis (No. 71), A Waller-To-Wilt Completion Sets Up 13) pitches six-yard pass to College connected on six consecutive shots so that a 79-65 Royals' lead was down to 86-80 when the fourth period started. Cincinnati still had a seven-point margin with 5:35 temaining. Then Hal Greer, who finished with 21 points, hit six straight points to start the locals on their way to victory before 2133 cheering fans. Greer and backcourt mate Paul Neumann were the big men at the end. They combined for the final 14 points by the 76ers with Greer's drive-In the go-ahead goal with 2:01 to play. Neumann followed with a lay-up off John Kerr's bounce pass and 18 seconds later hit on a jumper, making It 105-101 and putting the game beyond reach. After the game, the Royals still incensed by what McMahon called "one of the most one-side officiating jobs" he's ever seen left for home where they oppose unbeaten Boston Sunday. They were downcast, too. This was the second straight night without Robertson they had victory within their grasp and lost it with mistakes in the final six minutes. On the bright side, rookie Happy Hairston had some good moments in scoring 14 points. Carroll Williams, who almost engineered an upset of Villanova last week until injured. Williams uncorked a perfect aerial strike over the middle to halfback Roger Thesir.g. Thesing plucked the ball on the Flyers' 20 and dashed for the sidelines to complete a 36-yard TD trip with Just 2:12 left in the game. (See pictures on Pages 2-D, 10-D and 13-D). Xavier's kicking specialist George Wilson, who also can toss the long bomb, flipped to end Vince Ey-soldt for an apparent perfect extra point execution. However, it was nullified because Xavier was detected for clipping by the officials. After Xavier was penalized back to the 18. Wil halfback Wilt (No. 33) that carries to the UK two-yard line.

Oscar Goes Home Stitches' Oscar Robertson was home from Christ Hospital Saturday, but doctors have delayed removing the stitches from his injured right eye and he'll definitely miss tonight's game between the Royals and Boston Celtics at Cincinnati Gardens. "They want to wait until the stitches are looser," said Oscar's wife, Yvonne. "They'll probably take them out Monday." It's still questionable when Oscar will be able to return to action. He missed Friday night's game against Baltimore at the Gardens and, of course, did not make the trip with the Royals for Saturday night's game at Philadelphia with the 76ers.

This quick TD explosion seemed to ignite the Muskies and with 2:02 still on the clock Xavier pulled a "smart" onside kick. The weird boot squlbbed around in Dayton territory whirling around with "English" on it. Desperate Dayton players grabbed for the hobbling pigskin, but just couldn't pick it up or pounce on it. But, Xavier's Mike WIrth slammed his 193 pounds on the ball to give Muskies possession and a thread of hope. An errant pass and a 15-yard penalty set the Muskies back to their 38 with lust 1:29 on the score Nebraska 14, Kansas 7. Missouri 16, Colorado 7. SOUTH Kentucky 22, Vanderbilt 21.

From there, halfback Jim Davis ripped around Xavier's left end and churned in for the go-ahead TD with the timepiece in the east stands showing Just 1:20 left In the game. Mike DeFazio attempted to crack in for two extra points, but Dayton thwarted the move and Xavier held its final 12-7 advantage. It was Xavier's seventh win over hapless Dayton, and as a reward the Muskies get to keep the Governor's Cup. Up until their momentous comeback, the Muskies could move no further than Dayton's 30 yard line. The Muskies only other potential score came when they attempted a field goal from the Dayton 30, but Dankel's kick was too low. Twice In the first half Dayton attempted field goals, but both failed, one from the 15 and again from the 32. , Xavier, now with a chance to finish over the .500 mark this season, owns a 3-4-1 UC 'Double Tiniest North Texas, 27-6, Takes MVC Lead i BY DICK FORBES Of The Enquirer Staff . DENTON, Tex. University of Cincinnati won "two games in one," moved to a clear-cut Missouri Valley Conference lead and wrecked North Texas State's homecoming Saturday by crushing the Eagles in the last half for a convincing 27-6 victory. The Bearcats, baffled by a bruising North Texas defense in the first half when their lone touchdown came on a 46-yard pass play from Brig Owens to Errol Prlsby, wore down the Eagles in the final two quarters to win going away. The Bearcats utilized the brilliant passing and quar-terbacking of Owens, bountiful running by Al Nelson and Prlsby, and plenty of additional fire by substitutes for the offensive phase of the victory. And at the same time, the Bearcats threw up a rugged defense led by Bob Steinhauser and Doug De-Rose that effectively shot down the Eagles at opportune moments. They recovered three of NTS five fumbles, and intercepted four passes. The game was a bruising battle from the beginning, and the Bearcats may have suffered some serious injuries. Tempers once erupted In the last quarter when Ronnie Romlke of North 12-7 season ledger while Dayton stands 2-6 on the campaign. 0YT0N 0 XAVIER 0 7- 7 12-12 Dayton-Coates, 1, plungt (Winkler kick).

Both were put out of the game. It was UC's fifth victory in seven starts as the Bearcats Jumped from 1-0 to 3-0 in the Mo-Val football race. A Missouri Valley ruling in which both Louisville and Cincinnati stood to either win or lose two games against North Texas occurred because UC and Louisville don't play each other. The Eagles, suffering through their worst season in years, now are 2-5-1 on the season and 1-1 in the Valley. It appeared, for a while, that the Bearcats were not to take advantage of opnor-tunities. Fullback A. D. Whitfield fumbled on the first two Eagle plays from scrimmage, once on the NT 47, again on the NT 48, with UC recovering, but neither time could the Bearcats do anything with the ball. After that, North Texas made Its most serious threat of the day by marching 94 yards only to have Nelson easily intercept quarterback Corkey Bo-land's fourth down pass in the end zone with NT needing only two yards to score. The Bearcats promptly marched 80 yards to eight plays for the first touchdown. The scoring play came with the ball on the North Texas 46, Owens hit Prisby racing all alone on the 25-yard line, and Errol sprinted the rest of the way unmolested. Owens kicked the first of three extra point attempts. UC's recovery of another North Texas fumble later in the second quarter again availed nothing when Owens' field goal attempt from the 30 was long enough, but wide to the right. North Texas put another scare into Cincinnati early in the third period by taking the kickoff and pounding 62 yards In 11 plays to a touchdown. The TD came on Boland's pass to Carl Lockhart, who slipped from the grasps of both Prlsby and Sobolewskl. However, a screen pass try for two points failed, Engutrtr (Cochrtn) Php( t " Touchdown and UC still led 7-6. North Texas never again saw daylight. ;; : The 'Cats came back after the kickoff, and went 70 yards in seven plays to score as Nelson smashed 12 yards over left tackle. That made it 14-6. i Steinhauser's interception of Boland's pass on the UC 23, where he ran it back IS yards, set up the next score, The 'Cats went 61 yards Jn nine plays, and the eight-yard' TD came when Prlsby took a handoff and went eight yards around the left side, making it 21-6. -ZV The'Cats began substituting liberally at this point. Royce Starks set up, the final TD with another Interception, and the Bearcats went 47 yards In eight; plays. j-r- Bill Bailey ran right end for seven yards to a touchdown. This time Owens' kick was blocked. , ' ' (See picture on Page 2-D). Owens finished the day by completing nine of 11 passes for 146 yards, with one Intercepted, while Nelson gained 111 yards on 22 carries. : B o 1 a n d surprised the Bearcats by completing "13 of 19 passes for 145 yards and one touchdown. Four of his throws were Intercepted. The burley Whitfield, despite his fumbles, hurt the Cats with 97 yards on 21 runs, a 4-6 average, while Lockhart had 33 on seven tries. "j But best by far, with a performance that may earn him a more promising part in the offense, was Banks 37 yards on three hauls for 12.3 per try for the Bearcats. Jim Hoose had his best pass receiving day as Bearcat, hauling in six throws for 55 yards. Owens also hit fullback Ted Coppola for 37 yards on two connections. The 'Cats played without the services of center Jerry Momper, whose back became so painful that he didn't even dress for the game.
