Page 12 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Tuesday, November 13, 1984 Sports Sports Digest Who Hosted First Indiana NBA All-Star Game? INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —Advertisementsmistakenly promoting the 35th NBA All-Star Game next February in Indianapolis as "a first for Indiana" have raised some questions from Fort Wayne, which hosted the game in 1953. Ads say the 1985 game will be the first played in Indiana, where a love of basketball is legendary. But the league's third all-star game was played in Fort Wayne's Memorial Coliseum almost 32 years ago, before the Fort Wayne Pistons moved to Detroit. "It just never occurred to anyone to check," said Jerry Hazelwood, coordinator for a committee planning for the game, which is being hosted by the Indiana Pacers. "Most people think of the Pacers as the first team in the NBA. It was just an oversight," he said. The Pacers, who joined the NBA in 1976 when the American Basketball Association folded, are the fifth NBA team from Indiana. The Pistons were in Fort Wayne from 1948-1957. Indianapolis was represented by the Jets in 1948 and the Olympians from 1949-1953. Anderson, Ind., also fielded a team in the 1949-1950 season. Hazelwood said newspaper advertisements might be changed, but a television commercial probably would not be redone. "I don't know if we'll do a voice over (for TV) but I'm sure in print we'll say it's just the first game in Indianapolis," he said. Fort Wayne residents, especially those who remember the league's early days, have a right to complain, Hazelwood said, noting that just one call has reached the committee offices. Fazio Planning To Return To Pitt Next Year PITTSBURGH (UPI) — Foge Fazio, the embattled coach of the University of Pittsburgh football team, says he plans to be back next year. "I expect to be here," said Fazio when asked about his future plans .Monday following a luncheon at the Allegheny Club. "I signed a Uvoyear extension of my contract (which runs through 19881 just six months ago. Maybe a contract doesn't mean anything But they told me when I signed they wanted to stablize the program, that they didn't want coaches leaving every few years." Fazio has been under a lot of heat this year because the Panthers have won only two of 10 games and tied one. Some pre-season publications had predicted they would finish in the j nation's top 10. Celtics Wear Down Pacers United Press International Vern Fleming (10) cuts in front of Danny Ainge INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — The Boston Celtics showed the form of a good thoroughbred miler. They came storming out of the gate, eased up a bit and then just blew their opponents away and coasted to victory. "We played a good first quarter and a lousy second quarter," Boston coach K.C. Jones said after the Celtics pounded the Indiana Pacers 132-115 Monday night. "The second half was our game. The key was getting back on defense. Our transition game was run about as well as it has been all season." While Pacer coach George Irvine appreciated his team's aggressiveness on defense, the bottom line was clear. "We didn't do a very good job defensively inside," said Irvine. "They came out and banged people around. They set the tempo of the game and it took us a while to respond." Larry Bird scored 29 points and led a hot streak during the third period to pace the Boston victory, which put the Celtics a half-game in first place in the NBA Atlantic Division at 6-1. Indiana fell to 1-7. The Celtics pulled ahead by 21 points, 37-21, late in the first period as Bird and Dennis Johnson paced a strong quarter. But Vern Flemming scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half, including 10 straight Pacer points, to pull the hosts within 65-63 at halftime. Indiana, which never led in the game, tied the score at 69 early in the third period, but the Celtics ran off 11 straight points and Indiana never closed the gap- Bird, returning to the state where he excelled in college basketball, said it is just a matter of time before the Pacers match the success stories of the Celtics or his former Indiana State teams. "They are running more this year," Bird said. "When their shots start falling, they will be competitive." Bird led all scorers while Johnson added 24 points and Robert Parish and Danny Ainge each added 18. Herb Williams had 20 to pace Indiana. "We have to play harder than this, especially against the world champions," Irvine said. Jazz 123, Ma vs 97 Adrian Dantley scored 32 points in his first start of the season to lead the Utah Jazz to a 123-97 victory Monday night over the Dallas Mavericks. "I decided Adrian is too good of a player to keep on the bench, so I decided to start him tonight and let him play into shape," Utah coach Frank Layden said. Dantley missed the entire preseason due to his boycott of the team over a contract disagreement and did not join Utah until the fifth game of the regular season. Nebraska Voted Top Team In Nation By College Coaches NEW YORK <UPI i — Nebraska, one of five teams ranked No. l this season, has been given a st r/) chance to sit atop the ratings. Neu, ka replaced Washington as No. 1 in the UPI Board of Coaches' ratings this week, possibly patting Ihe Cornhuskers two wins away from the national championship. Nebraska can wrap up the Big Eight championship and earn its fourth straight Orange Bowl trip with a win over Oklahoma Saturday. Nebraska, third last week, received 19 of 41 first-place votes and 584 total points. South Carolina moveci up three spots to second with nine first-place votes and 563 points, edging No. 3 Brigham Young (12 first-place votes, 558 points). Oklahoma State moved up three places to fourth while Washington dropped to fifth after its 16-7 loss to Southern California. Nebraska was No. l for three weeks earlier in the season but slipped to ninth after a stunning 17-9 loss to Syracuse seven games ago. The Cornhuskers have inched up since then and regained the top spot when the top two teams lost Saturday. "I'm not lobbying for it or anything like that," Nebraska coach Tom Osborne said of being ranked No. 1. "The way things have worked in the past if you win solidly and the other teams lose you just kind of move up." A shakeup affecting every ranked team occurred after seven Top 20 teams — including No. 2 Texas — were beaten Saturday. Oklahoma, which faces Nebraska with the Big Eight title on the line Saturday, moved up to sixth followed by No. 7 Southern Cal, No. 8 Florida, No. 9 Texas and No. 10 Texas Christian. Rounding out the Top 20 are No. 11 Ohio State, No. 12 Louisiana State, No. 13 Boston College, No. 14 Virginia, No. 15 Southern Methodist, No. 16 Georgia, No. 17 Miami, No. 18 Florida State, No. 19 Auburn and No. 20 Penn State. Oklahoma made the largest jump of six spots after clubbing Colorado 42-17. Southern Cal, Virginia and SMU all moved up five spots. Miami tumbled 11 spots after blowing a 31-0 halftime lead in a 42-10 loss to Maryland. Florida State dropped eight places after a 38-26 loss to South Carolina and Texas lost seven spots after its 29-15 defeat against Houston. Auburn and Penn State both moved back into the ratings this week. Iowa, 18th last week, and West Virginia, previously 19th, dropped out. Beside the Nebraska-Oklahoma game, Texas visits TCU and Georgia visits Auburn in other games pitting ranked teams Saturday. TCU leads Texas by one-half game in the Southwest Conference race. Florida, LSU, Georgia and Auburn give the Southeastern Conference four ranked teams. The Big Eight Conference has three teams — Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma — among the top six.

SEATTLE (UPI) - The Seattle Seahawks had another big game for takeaways — they intercepted three passes, recovered three fumbles and stole some of the Los Angeles Raiders' Monday night mystique. Dave Krieg threw a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes to lead the Seahawks to a 17-14 victory over Los Angeles and hand the Raiders only their third loss in 25 appearances in Monday night games. The defeat just about kills any chances Los Angeles, now 14 after three straight losses, had of repeating as AFC West champion. Denver, 10-1, leads the division and has already defeated the Raiders twice this season. With its victory over the Raiders, Seattle, 9-2, remained a game behind the Broncos. Denver and Seattle play each other twice in the final four weeks of the season. "Our backs are to the wall," said Raiders coach Tom Flores. "We've got to do it ourselves. No one will do it for us. We're just hoping to win a wild card (playoff berth)." Despite a noisy Kingdome- record crowd of 64,001, about half of whom were clad in promotional "Raider Busters" T-shirts, the Seahawks struggled through a dismal first-half offensive performance and trailed 7-0 at halftime. The game began to turn in Seattle's favor early in the third quarter when Los Angeles running back Marcus Allen fumbled on his own 12-yard line and Seattle linebacker Shelton Robinson recovered. The Seahawks settled for a 27-yard field goal by Norm Johnson after picking up only three yards on three plays. But Krieg got hot on Seattle's next two possessions, completing six straight passes to spearhead a pair of 63-yard United Press International Marcus Allen (L) drags along Keith Simpson touchdown marches. The scores came on an 8-yard pass to Byron Walker and 20-yard TD throw to Daryl Turner, with the Seahawk wide receivers beating All-Pro cornerback Lester Hayes both times. "David Krieg made the big plays when he had to make them," said Seahawk coach Chuck Knox. "He fired two strikes in there." Krieg passed for 107 yards on the two drives after a first half in which the Seahawk offense compiled only 46 yards in total offense. "We came out and challenged them in the second half," said Krieg. "We decided that we would have to pass the ball and go after their cornerbacks." The Raiders scored on a pair of 1-yard runs by Allen in the second and fourth quarters. The first score ended a streak of 10 straight scoreless quarters by the Seahawk defense. Allen's second touchdown with 13:33 left in the game pulled the Raiders to within 17-14. Two other Raider drives deep into Seahawk territory in the second and third quarters came up empty because of fumbles by Frank Hawkins and Todd Christensen. In the fourth quarter the Seattle secondary took over, intercepting three Marc Wilson passes to choke off Raider drives. Seattle safety Kenny Easley picked off two of the passes and now has six interceptions in his last three games.
