(AP) — Oklahoma State University abs- ketball hopes were dealt a severe blow Thursday when it was announced that start sophomore Amos Thomas has been declared ineligible for the remainder of the season. Thomas 6-foot- 7, is the Cowboys' leading scorer and re- bounder. But Thursday it was reported that Thomas had played in a benefit basketbal game that violated NCAA rules. OSU learned that Thomas played in he fund- raising game for Oklahoma City Dunjee High School last April and reported it to the Big Eight Conference. Weekend Prep Cage Schedule Tonight Quincy at Mt.

Now Southern Illinois but not. an impossible one . By AON HAPOPORT Associated Press Sprtos Writer PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Suppose for a moment that you are a 26-year-old professional golfer who has never finished a tournament higher than a tie for 20th place. Last year, you earned a grand total of $3,537.53. You are now in the first round of one of the richest tournaments on the tour and you finish with a 70, two strokes under par and in a three-way tie for the lead with Billy Casper, who last year made more than $200,000 and rookie pro Mac McLendon. But just after you finish your 18 holes at the Pebble Beach course, the first round is cancelled because of heavy rains. Everybody's score is wiped out and you have to start all over. Are you angry? Do you curse the weather that played such a dirty trick on you? Not if you're Harry Toscano because you figure you had it coming. It all happened to Toscano in what was to be the opening round of the $150,000 Bing Crosby Golf Tournament Thursday. No fewer than 96 pros had finished their rounds and 72 were on the course, most of them almost through, when the Professional Golfers Association canceled the round. The tournament will now run through Monday at least. Two years ago, it rained at another Crosby and Toscano was standing at the 18th tee. It had taken him 102 strokes to get that far and he promptly hit his tee shot out of bounds. "It would have taken at least 110 strokes," Toscano remembers. "I won't forget it if I live to be 150. It was raining so hard I was almost blind." But that round, too. was wiped out and Toscano figures that maybe this was evning up the score. But he said he was playing pretty well Thursday, especially on the - key holes, and should be able to do it aagin. Casper was philosophical also. He was twe-over-par for a time but was unworried. "When you get to be old, you learn you'll pick up a couple of birdies along the way so you just keep playing your game." What are the chances the tournament will be finished Monday? Not great. Rain is supposed to diminish today but more is forecast for Saturday. ABC now plans to televise the final three rounds. SPORT SHORTS YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — Fort Nelson was made the early 5-2 favorite today for the §25,000 final in the Snowball Pacing Series at Yonkers Raceway Saturday night. TYLER'S JEFFERSON MOTORS 820 Jordan 'Southern Illinois Largest Automobile Dealer" Pontiac—Cadillac — Buick—GMC Trucks Mt." Vernon Saws Through Sycamore At English Course OLDHAM, England (AP> — Members of Brookdale Golf Club agreed today that the rot­ ter who tried to saw down the sycamore in the middle of the fairway was a golfing rabbit determined at all costs to cut his handicap. The 100 -year-old tree, standing 30 feet high, catches anything but a solid drive from the tee at Brookdale's 545 -yard fourth hole. Frustrated golfers call it the Brookdale Folly. Club officials said they presume it was a member of this group who managed to saw three- quarters of the way through the tree trunk before dawn broke over the course. Tree surgeon Sam Lees poured a tar solution into the cut and then stitched the trunk with metal staples. "There is a fair chance that the sycamore will survive," he said. Club professional Ernest Med- geley called it celarly the work of a disgruntled golfer who decided to cut up rough. "The tree is a serious hazard, it's true," Medgeley said, "but that's what makes golf interesting."
