Tide Captures NCAA Spot By The Associated Press Eighth-ranked Alabama has fulfilled a dream night by capturing its first outright Southeastern Conference basketball title in 20 years. However, the nightmare is just around the corner. The Crimson Tide simply earned the deadliest path possible to a national championship when freshman "Reginald King poured in eight points in overtime to give Alabama an 84-77 triumph over Vanderbilt Monday night. The victory ended ninth-ranked Tennessee's hopes of sharing the SEC crown. It places Alabama in the NCAA Mideast Regional tournament against such awesome opposition as top-ranked Indiana, second-ranked Marn quette and No. 5 North Carolina, the Tide's opening-round foe at Dayton Saturday. Coach C. M. Newton wasn't too worried about that, though. "When you are in a tournament with the top 32 teams in the country, it doesn't make a difference who you play or where you play," Newton said. "They are all going to be tough." Newton, who had shared SEC titles the last two years with Vanderbilt and Kentucky, respectively, said he told his wife, Evelyn, before the game that "if you want something this badly, it's got to be sinful." The Alabama coach had already left Nashville before it was learned that his coaching opponent, Vandy's Roy Skinner, was resigning. Skinner, bowing to what he called the pressure of coaching, had said repeatedly this season that "this team is destroying me with all these overtimes and close games." He had gone through four overtimes before Monday night — winning them all. "I was all torn up inside as I watched this one, just like all the others this season.'' There were only three other major college games in the na- tion Monday night — all in the SEC. Kentucky, bound for the National Invitation Tournament, slipped past Mississippi State in overtime 94-93 in the final game ever in the Wildcats' Memorial Coliseum. Gary Redding scored a career high 30 points as Auburn smashed Mississippi 103-88 and Florida erupted at the start of the second half with a 17-2 spurt that produced a 94-81 rout of Louisiana State. 3 North Carolina Schools Complete 12-Team NIT Field NEW YORK (AP) — There is absolutely no truth to the suggestion that the N in NIT stands for North Carolina. No, it's still the National Invitation Tournament, the nation's oldest postseason basketball extravaganza, which completed its 12-team field Monday by naming six more clubs, including North Carolina State, 19-8, and North Carolina-Charlotte. 21-5. North Carolina A&T. 20-5. was selected Sunday. None of those clubs is to be confused with the University of North Carolina, the nation's fifth-ranked team. 'And a flat turndown by Maryland, an also-ran in the Atlantic Coast Conference postseason playoffs, leaves the NIT without a Top Twenty team in the field.

The NIT, which lost its television contract this year, also was faced with having to pick from what was left after the National Collegiate Athletic Association selected its 32-team field. Also named to the NIT Monday were San Francisco, 23-7: Kansas State, 20-7: Holy Cross, 21-9, and St. Peter's, N.J., 19-10, the only local five in a tournament which has been accused in the past of selecting teams on their ability to sell tickets rather than play basketball. The five clubs picked Sunday along with North Carolina A&T were Louisville, 20-6; Kentucky. 15-10; Niagara. 17-11; Oregon, 19-10, and Providence, 19-9. Kansas State, .Louisville, N.C. State and Oregon were given byes for the first round of the NIT, which gets under way at : Madison Square Garden Saturday with a pair of doubleheaders. In the afternoon, Kentucky faces Niagara and Providence meets North Carolina A&T. At night, San Francisco plays UNC-Charlotte and Holy Cross opposes St. Peter's. On Monday night, March 15, Oregon goes against the USF- UNCC winner and N.C. State faces the Holy Cross-St. Peter's victor. The next evening, Louisville takes on the ;i ProvidehceN.C, A&T survivor and Kansas State plays the Kentucky-Niagara winner. The finals will be held Sunday. March 21. Meanwhile. Maryland, 22-6. upheld the ACC's recent tradition of having one of its top teams, disappointed at failing to win the conference tourney, snub the NIT. The Terrapins, 1972 NIT champs, also turned down an invitation in 1974 while N.C. State rejected a bid last year. "It's been a long season and, we feel, a good season," said Maryland athletic director Jim Keoe. "We don't feel we have anything to apologize for and we didn't want the season to last another 10 days or so." Kehoe also cited high travel and lodging costs and noted that Maryland's share of the 1972 receipts barely covered expenses.

He is a very sick young man right now. " Johns, a sophomore from Los Angeles, played in 24 games this past season scoring 189 points and grabbing 142 rebounds. He became ill during the pregame workout Thursday before Drake's game with Tulsa. Skinner Resigns Vanderbilt University basketball Coach Roy Skinner resigned following his team's WASHINGTON (AP) Former major league pitching star Don Newcombe is telling high school students around the country how he won 149 games as a major-league baseball pitcher but then lost his career, his business, his home and almost his family to alcoholism. Newcombe, 49, now a recovered alcoholic, told his story to the Senate's alcohol and narcotics subcommittee Monday as he talked about drinking in baseball and the climate of acceptance he believes television has created for alcohol among the nation's young. The subcommittee is chaired by Sen. William D. Hathaway. D-Maine, who said there is some pressure to bar TV commercials for beer and wine. Newcombe said he did not endorse such a move and noted that while there are 10 million persons in the United States who are alcoholics, 90 million others are able to drink with no real problem. Here is an excerpt from Newcombe's testimony: "My drinking began when I was about eight years old. My family drank, and I drank right along with them. When I entered organized baseball and joined the Dodgers in 1949. my consumption of beer increased enormously. "The fact is baseball managers encouraged the drinking of beer — and they still do. To this day, the only way to celebrate a baseball victory is for each player to knock off a six- pack of beer in the dressing room after the game, and it takes at least a six-pack to console yourself when you lose. Nearly all the players do it. "My problem was that I never knew my own capacity. "After my biggest winning season with the Dodgers in 1956 (he was 27-7) I went to Japan with the team and was so consistently drunk that I was unable to pitch a single 84-77 overtime loss to Alabama. Have Canceled The St. Louis Cardinals have canceled exhibition games scheduled Saturday and Sunday with the New York Mets and another game set for next Monday with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The cancellations came as spring training continued to be delayed by the closing of camps by baseball owners in a contract dispute with players. U.S. Leads Billie Jean King and Rosemary Casals easily beat Marina Kroshina and Natalya Chmyreva 6-2 in women's doubles to lead the United States to a 26-21 lead in games over the Soviet Union in the first U.S.-Russian team tennis tournament. game on the trip. The following season I went into a prolonged slump and the next year. In 1958, the year the Dodgers moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, my record slipped to a dreary 0-6. "I was traded to Cincinnati, then to Cleveland. I finally dropped back into the minors at Spokane and ended my career in Nagoya, Japan. After a season of me and my drinking habits, the Japanese didn't want me either. "My personal life began to fall apart too. I had already been .divorced from my first wife of 13 years. She too was an alcoholic. "I had lost my career in baseball and then I lost a cocktail lounge, a liquor store and an apartment house I had purchased as investments. I finally went into bankruptcy and lost our family home. "Then one day my lovely wife, Billy, whom I married in 1960. told me she had had enough and was leaving with the children. It was then that I promised her on the head of my oldest son, Don Jr., that I wouldn't drink again. And I haven't, since 1966. "So for the past several years I have worked in various ways to prevent alcohol abuse and alcoholism, particularly among the young. "My experience is that television helps reinforce the notion that alcohol will help people achieve what they can't achieve on their own — to become more successful, more sophisticated, more desirable and more courageous." * * * EARN A SECOND INCOME In a job you can be proud of joining the Army Reserve.
