2—15 THE REGJSTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 1969 j Bruins Maul Houston, 100-64 UClA,N.M.Si, And Santa Clara Remain Unbeaten By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer UCLA might be having its own way in the college basketball rankings, but the Bruins are getting plenty of competition from Santa Clara and New Mexico State for the team with the best record in the nation. Third-ranked Santa Clara, raising its record to 16-0 with a 64-49 victory over San Jose State last Saturday, appears headed for an unbeaten clash against top-ranked UCLA in the NCAA post-season regional playoffs on the West Coast. New Mexico State No. 7, continued its steady climb in the rankings with an 80-65 decision over Texas-El Paso for a 15-0 mark. UCLA is the only other major unbeaten with a 12-0 record as the Bruins buried once-powerful rival Houston 100-64 despite the absence of Lew Alcindor for much of the game. The Bruins have two dates in Chicago Stadium against Northwestern and Chicago Loyola this weekend before heading into their final 12 games against Pacific 8 conference foes. It would take a colossal upset to keep the Bruins from finishing the regular season at 26-0. Santa Clara is idle this week before going into its last 11 games, and only a similar upset would stop the Broncos from a 27-0 mark. New Mexico State will have the most difficult time remaining unbeaten in its final 11 contest with two straight meetings coming, up against cross-state rival New Mexico after the Ag­ gies host Tennessee Tech Saturday night. UCLA started slow against Houston, the only team to beat the Bruins in their last 76 games, but pulled away from a 36-30 halftime lead, although Alcindor played only 17 minutes and scored eight points. He had been bedridden the previous four days with tonisilitis. John Vallely, with 18 points, and Bill Sweek, with 14, led the scoring while Sid Wicks took care of the rebounding as UCLA won its 45th in a row at home. Santa Clara, setting a school record for victories, dropped host San Jose out of a first place tie in the West CAPING victory as Dennis Awtry hit 10 of 13 from the field for 22 points. Visiting New Mexico State had a rougher time, overcoming several deficits in the second half before pulling away with Wi minutes left when Charlie Criss and John Burgess hit baskets for a 64-59 lead. Criss finished with 23 points. The rest of the Top Ten also posted victories, although some of them were in doubt until the end. North Carolina, No. 2, held off host Wake Forest 94-89 on Charlie Scott's 26 points, while Davidson, No. 4, needed Dave Moser's last second jump shot for a 66-64 squeaker over Virginia Military on the road. Kentucky, No. 5 broke a 58- all tie on Dan Issel's six straight points for a 69-66 triumph over Tennessee at Knoxville. St. John's, No. 6, routed West Virginia 91-62 at home. • SCORES * Saturday College Basketball By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS East Army 62, Dartmouth 48 Penn State 65, Pitt 50 LaSalle 88, W.

(AP)Len Dawson, 12 years a pro but overlooked by all of the American Football League coaches except his own, succeeded where youth failed as the West came from far back to defeat the New York-dominated East 38-25 in the league's annual All-Star game. Although he topped the league in average yards gained during the regular season, the 33-year- old National League reject from Kansas City was overlooked by the coaches in favor of San Diego's 28-year-old John Hadl in their selection of the West's All-Star team.

For the first time the West led 28-25. Lynch then came up with another great play when he. grabbed Griese's pass and raced 37 yards to the one from where Robinson scored. Jan Stenrud of Kansas City kicked a 32-yard field goal in the. closing minutes for the last of his three field goals—the longest of which was a 52-yarder in the opening period. "We've just gave away too much in the second half," said Wally Lemm of Houston, coach of ' the losers. "Alvin Reed dropped a couple of good passes from Namath in the first half or we might well have been farther ahead. But loss of that onside kick, Emerson Boozer's fumble which led to a third- period touchdown, Little's long run and Lynch's interception really hurt us."

Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) - Fred Taylor of Ohio State has had history and apparently has the Buckeyes ready for another banner season.

Broadway Joe completely overshadowed Hadl, who was far off in his passing. The picture quickly changed as Bob Griese of Miami and Dawson became rival quarterbacks in the second half. Still the East led 22-13 going into the final period. New York's Ji m. T u r n e r kicked the last of his six field goals early in the final quarter to lengthen the margin to 25-13 but that ended the East's scoring as Dawson took complete charge with assists from three comparative youngsters — Jim Lynch, Floyd Little and Paul Robinson, the league's No. 1 rookie from Cincinnati. Little provided the first big burst when he took a short pass from Dawson. The bow-legged former Syracuse University All-American from Denver cut down the left side and wasn't stopped until 81 yards later on the one-yard line. Hewritt Dixon of Oakland went over on the fourth down Lynch successfully covered on onside kick and Dawson and his mates were on their way again from the East's 43. This time Robinson went over from Most of the East's players, however, gave credit for the victory to Dawson, who was voted the game's outstanding back. George Webster of Houston, with two interceptions in the first half, was named the outstanding lineman. The game was free of injuries except for the slight dislocation of his left shoulder received by Gerry Philbin of the Jets and the East in the final period. Dawson held the advantage over the other three quarterbacks. He completed four of nine passes for 158 yards. Hadl gained only 23 with four completed of 19. There wans't much difference between the East's two passers. Namath 'was seven out of 18 crowns, is prowling for another championship. His Buckeyes took sole possession of the conference lead with a stunning 98-85 victory over Michigan Saturday. More important the triumph came at Ann Arbor to boost Ohio State's record to 3-0 with two of those successes coming on the road. In addition to the titles won in the past 10 years he has coached at Ohio State, Taylor's clubs have a string of achievements such as 32 straight victories, 47 straight regular season triumphs, 27 straight in Big Ten competition and 50 straight at home. Another milestone is in the offing for Taylor who, going into this season had a Big Ten coaching record of 96 victories and 44 defeats. With the three triumphs scored this season, Taylor, will be shooting for his 100th Big Ten victory in Ohio State's next conference game. That, however, will have to wait for a while. Ohio State journeys to Georgia Tech Monday night and then the Buckeyes take a week off for semester examinations before While Ohio State was pulling one-half game ahead of undefeated and idle Purdue in the Big Ten race, Iowa boosted its record to 3-1 with an 89-68 triumph over Minnesota and Michigan State shocked Northwestern ,89-75 at Evanston. Northwestern, which has now lost twice at home, has only one Big Ten triumph and that came at Michigan State in a conference opener earlier this month.-. Big Ten action is limited this week. Michigan is at Michigan Tuesday night and even the conference race has to take a back seat to UCLA's weekend invasion of the Midwest. Top-ranked. UCLA will be involved in doubleheaders at Chicago Stadium Friday and Saturday nights. Northwestern takes on UCLA and Loyola faces Marquette Friday night and Loyola takes on Lew Alcindor and his compatriots as Illinois battles Notre Dame in Saturday night's program. A victory against Minnesota would lift the Boilermakers into a first place tie with Ohio State. for 98 yards and Griese nine (facing eighth-ranked /Illinois at out of 14 for 97. i Columbus Jan. 28.
