Vernon, Illinois By HERSCHEL NISSENSON Associated Press Sports Writer This may come as a surprise to those who have conceded UCLA its third straight National Collegiate basketball champion ship, but the Bruins, No. 1 in the nation, are only No. 2 in the Pacific Eight Conference. Right now, it's simply a mat ter of who's played more games and no one seriously expects the standings to look the same come March. But the University of Washington, 9-4 over-all to UCLA's 12-0, held onto the league lead Monday night by de feating Oregon 60-54. That gave the Huskies a 4-0 record in conference play to UCLA's 2-0, but they play each other Feb. 7 and' 17 and Wash ington's still being on top is about as improbable as Lew Al cindor being cast as one of the Seven Dwarfs. All five starters were in dou ble figures for the Huskies, led by Pat Woolcock's 13 points, George Irvine had 12, Jay Bond and Rafael Stone 11 apiece and Dave Willenborg 10. Oregon's Stan Love took game honors with 17. The Ducks led 17-15 midway through the first half, but Washington ran off eight straight points to take the lead for good. The Huskies led at halftime 3225. None of The Associated Press' Top Ten teams played 1 Monday. The highest ranking teams to see action were 12th-rated Ohio State and No. 20 Dayton and the results didn't say much for the home court advantage. Ohio State traveled to Atlanta and beat Georgia Tech 73-66 while Dayton stayed at home and succumbed to Western Kentucky 70-65. Denny Meadors sank two late free throws and then nailed down Ohio State's victory with a key steal that boosted the Buckeyes' record to 10-2. Georgia Tech bolted to an eight-point lead in the opening minutes but Meadors and Dave Sorenson sparked an 11-point run that put the Buckeyes back on top. .,. The teams traded baskets until the final minutes when Meadors' free throws gave the Buckeyes a 69-66 lead 1 . Meadors then swiped the ball and Jim Cleamons' basket boosted the margin to five points. Sorenson led the winners with 16 points and Meadors had 13. Dayton led Western Kentucky 57-52 with 7:45 to play. But 6- foot-10 Dan Obrovac fouled out and the roof fell in as the Hill- toppers scored 16 straight points, 10 by sophomore Jim Rose. Seven-foot Jim McDaniels paced Western Kentucky with 25 points while Dan Sadlier had 1 20 for the Flyers. The loss was Dayton's third in 15 games and the first in nine home games this season.

The Friday schedule shows Mo Leans boro going against Benton at 7 p.m. while Carmi tackles Fairfield in the nightcapper. On Saturday, it's Carmi against Benton and Fairiield a- fcainst McLeansboro. The team that has the best won loss record at the end of the tournament will be declared the winner. In the event that two teams tie, the team which won when these two teams played will be declared the winner. In case more than two teams have the same won- loss record the team with the best free throw p e rcentage throughout the tournament will be declared the winner of the meet. Benton After Third Title Benton has won the past two championships after Fairfield captured the inagural meet in 1966, but the Rangers might find winning a third straight title difficult. Only Carmi, with a 6-6- overall mark, is ranked below the Rangers who are 6-5. Unbeaten Fairfield is the top seeded club, while McLeansboro is rated the No. 2 team in the tourney. Opposing coaches agree that F&ii-field is the team to beat. 'Sure, I think Fairfield is the toughest team in the tournament," said Carmi Coach Dave Lee. "In fact, I consider Fairfield the top team in Southern Illinois." The former SIU cage star is not convinced though that the Mules will have an easy route in capturing the championship. 'I believe any team in the tournament could beat Fairfield on a given night," said Lee. "I think McLeansboro can give them a good game and I think Benton can stay close because they have good size and can hit well." McLeansb o r o Coach Dick Jones' Foxes have yet to face Fair-field, but the veteran mentor is aware of the potential the Mules have. "We know that Fairfield is tough and that Benton is also a good team," said Jones. "I look for some close games in the tournament." Foxes Minus Russell While McLeansboro is ranked No. 2 the Foxes" may not be up to par as 5-U senior Bob Russell will be on the sidelines with a sprained ankle. 'Bobby sprained his ankle last week in practice," said Jones. "The doctor says it will now be about two weeks before he can return," said the McLeansboro skipper. Jones has tabbed 6-1 junior Ron Moser to replace Russell who was averaging 11.6 points per game before the injury. Moser is no stranger to the McLeansboro lineup, having started the first three games of the season before being benched. Besides Moser, the McLeansboro coach said he would probably open Thursday night with a lineup of Lewis Winemiller, Dole Nipper, Terry Lee and Rick Bailey. ' The Foxes own a 9-3 record, wim losses coming to Eldorado, West Frankfort and C a r ri e r Mills. McLeansboro is averaging 65.2 points per game, com- I-ared to 56 for opponents. Carmi is Underdog Carmi, the underdog in the .'ournament, has lost to meet entiles McLeansboro and Fair­ iield. T he Mules ripped the Bulldogs last Saturdy by a 70-48 count, wh'le McLeansboro turned the trick early in the season by a 67-51 margin'. "Right now we're having trouble with our shooting," said Lee. "We just can't seem to find the range." The form e r McLeansboro prep said he wasn't certain of a starting lineup for Thursday, but indicated that three juniors (Fred Kendall, Tony Gates and Gary Spencer) and two sophomores (Rod Cozaort and Mike Morrill) will likely comprise the opening quintet. Kendall, a 5-11 guard, is the team's leading scorer with a 21 point per game average. The Bulldogs own wins over Noiris City, Albion, Mt. Carmel, Flora, Salem and Bridgeport. Besides the losses to McLeansboro and Fairfield, Carmi has also bowed to Eldorado, Metropolis^ Lawrenceville and OIney. Hungers On Losing Streak Benton, the only South Seven Conference' team among the field, is currently on a three game losing streak with consecutive losses to Centralia, West Frankfort and Mt. Vernon. The Rangers are averaging 76 points per game compared to a 75 point per game average for opponents. The Benton attack is built around 6-3 sharpshooter Doug Collins, who currently owns a 28.5 scoring average in conference play. Joe Milton, Roger Ackins, Rodney Kaspar and Hugh Frailey will probably i'ound out the Ranger starting lineup. Fairfield Is Rough Host Fairfield has what many rbservers regard as the top team in Southern Illinois. The Mules have consistently been ranked among the top 15 prop teams in the state by the Associated Press.' Coach Larry Odum has a well di.siplined team centered around 6-6 Gerald Foster, Mr. Everything on the basktball court. Foster is currently averaging over 30 points per game as the Mules have swept to 13 straight victories. Eig wins for Fairfield have name over Mt. Vernon and North Egypt challenger Law- errceville. The Wayne County club has also captured the 01- nt'v Holiday Tournament title. Joining Foster in the starting lint up Thursday will probably be Danny Carter, Ronnie Brand, Robert Vaughan and Larry Heflin. According to Fairfield Athletic Director Don Wood, no tickets will be sold in advance and no seats will be reserved. Gen- By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For many years, the Boston Celtics taught the importance of a big man rebounding in the middle, the fast break, the sudden spree that burst open a game. Now those teachings are coming back to haunt them. The Baltimore Bullets, a National Basketball Association doormat during the reign of the Celtics, proved again Monday night they learned those lessons well by beating Boston 122-109. The victory was Baltimore's third straight over the Celtics this season and boosted its Eastern Division lead to 3% games over Philadelphia and 1 Boston. In the only other NBA game, Milwaukee tripped Detroit 102101 at Madison, Wis. , In the only American Basketball Association contest, Indiana outlasted Kentucky 141-129 and pulled into a tie with the Colonels for second place in the Eastern Division. Baltimore held only an 88-85 lead toward the end of the third quarter ' when Jack Marin scored 1 six points and Gus Johnson four in a 12-2 fast break spurt that buried the visiting Celtics. Kevin Loughery led the Bullets with 38 points, but their man in the middle, Wes Unseld, a major reason for their success this year, played an equally important role in the victory. He outscored Bill Russell 18-13 and outrebounded him 23-18. Sam Jones had 35 points for Boston, which fell percentage points behind Philadelphia. Jon McGlocklin climaxed 1 a 38-point performance for Milwaukee with a basket in the last six seconds for a 102-99 lead. The Bucks had never trailed after taking a 58-51 halftime lead. Indiana took advantage of 38 Kentucky fouls and hit 50 three throws for its victory.' Roger Brown led the Pacers with 36 points while Loui3 Dampier had 33 for Kentucky.

Barber Wins As Rain Halts Kaiser Open NAPA, Calif. (AP) — "It's a doggone shame," commented Miller Barber. "You hate to win this way." • The 38-year-old from Sherman, Tex., had just collected $13,500 for his victory in the rain-abbreviated Kaiser International Open Golf Tournament as storms continued to flood the fairways and greens. Good weather prevailed Thursday and Friday as Barber posted scores of 68 and 67 at the Silverado Country Club. Then came the rains and by Monday morning all hope of continuing the tournament was gone. "You can't even get to the tees," commented Jack Tuthill, tournament director for the Professional Golfers' Association. "This course wont' be playable Tuesday either." So' the touring pros headed for Pebble Beach and Crosby's national pro-amateur. They hoped to leave the bad weather behind, but that may not be. Fresh storms were reported heading for the Northern California area. With the reduction to 36 holes, the purse was also halved as the stocky, balding Barber collected for his 135 score. — Elgin Baylor Gains Ground Elvin Hayes Continues As NBA Scoring Leader Monday's Fights By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ii" CKEESPORT, Pa. — Ted Wright, 179, Detroit, outpointed frank Bullard, 174^, Canada 10.
