72 Players In Double Figures Tall Kaskaskia Shades Rend Warners 92-89 -4s£ BOX SCOWS J By BOB KELLEY was David vs. Goliath again last night m Vernois News Gym as Rend Lake's hustling Warriors took:on the Blue Devils from Kaskaskia College. Only this time, Goliath didn't fall i Rend Warrior* 3 col lud Kaskaskia, which measures an average of 6'5" as a starting anlt, just managed to escape with a 92 -89 triumph over conference foe Rend Lake, which gave away nearljv four inches per man to its rivals of Centralia, Despite falling for the sixth time in the Southern Illinois College loop, the Warriors had nothing to be ashamed of in the hotly contested encounter. With 7:20 remaining and the Blue Devils ahead 78-73 Rend Lake's leading scorer and re- bounder, Larry Tutt, fouled out. The outlook down the stretch looked dismal for head mentor Jim Waugh and gang. But instead of folding before! their towering visitors, RLC fought back valiantly. Warriors Lead 81-80 Larry Stonecipher netted a pa^r of charity tosses but was matched by a John Waterbury fielder. Stoney struck again, this time for a two- pointer, and RL's Jim Birkner followed suit. Suddenly, the underdogs were within one point at 80-79 Another Stonecipher bucket at 4:01 pushed the Warriors over Chuck Mundell's Blue Dveils, 8180, and climaxed the surprise comeback. The little "Davids" of Mt. Vernon had briefly overcome the giants. During the next three minutes though, Kaskaskia reeled off a 10-3 scoring advantage despite a pressing man-to-man defense by Rend Lake and the loss of its' two big men, 6'8" Bob San- tei and Waterburg, via the foul . route. Tallies from Phil Bowling, Ed Johnson, and Birkner contributed to the last minute Warrior effort but the clock ran out on : the never-say-die quintet.

Battle For Lead Bucks Hit Purdue On Saturday CHICAGO (AP) - Having turned back Illinois' threat, Ohio State's Buckeyes head for Purdue and undisputed possession of the Big Ten basketball lead. The Buckeyes hammered Illinois 76-67 Tuesday night in their own backyard and advance to Purdue Saturday in an effort to shake off the undefeated Boilermakers. Ohio State, led by Dave Sorenson's 30 points and a late spurt by Jim Cleamons, boosted its Big Ten record to 4-0, one-half game ahead of Purdue at 3-0, and shuffled back: seventh-ranked Illinois to a 2-2 1 rating in conference competition. , Ohio State led 37-34 at the half and led by anywhere from one to five points throughout the second half to match Illinois' overall record of 12-2 for the season. However, with four minutes to play, Illinois crept within one point at 62-61 before Ohio State outscored Illinois 10-2 with Cleamons supplying six of the points. Cleamons was second to Sorenson with 14 points while Jody Finney and Steve Howell chipped in with 12 and 11, rc- pectivcly. Illinois was stymied in the second half as 6-foot-8 sophomore Greg Jackson had to sit out much of the time with four fouls after scoring 12 points Dave Scholz led the mini, whose only losses this season have been at Purdue and Ohio State, with 20 points. While the Buckeyes were taking charge of the conference lead, Wisconsin's hustling Badgers defeated 16th ranked Marquette 56-50 in one of the lowest scoring games of the season. Wisconsin's triumph gave Big Ten teams a 65-30 edge over outside opposition. Jim Johnson led the Badgers, who went into the game favored by two points, with a 24-point splurge and Marquette senior George Thompson set a school record by scoring 14 points to lift his career rec Mt V.

The advice is well taken In many fields, but had the playwright aimed at the sports world, he might have saved himself the ink. . .

But while the Buckeyes were putting their foot in the Big Ten door, McGuire succeeded only in putting his foot in his mouth. The Rose Bowl game, which gained Ohio State's football team the national championship, is history, but the sweet smell of success has rubbed off on the 12th-ranked basketball Buckeyes. Paced by Dave Sorenson's 30 points, they upset seventh-ranked Illinois 76-67 and took the Big Ten lead by a half- game over idle Purdue. Things turned sour for McGuire when the officials slapped him with two technical fouls and finally awarded Florida State an 87-76 triumph over No. 19 South Carolina, stopped the contest with just under two minutes left.

"Sorenson played a heckuva game," said Buckeye Coach Fred Taylor, "but our zone defense was a key factor. We went to a zone because we thought we could rebound better against their size." Ohio State had a 37-29 rebounding edge as Greg Jackson, the losers' 6-foot-8 center, sat out most of the second half with four personals "They did a pretty good job with their zone," admitted Illinois' Harv Schmidt. "We couldn't get the boards." The game left both teams with 12-2 records, but Ohio State is 4-0 in Big Ten play while Illinois is 2-2, — South Carolina's McGuire got his Irish up when the officials called a charging foul on John Roche. The officials, Reggie Copeland and Bobby Brock, warned him three times they would stop the game if he didn't return to the bench. Two of the warnings brought technical fouls.

The Gamecock coach refused comment but Florida State's Hugh Durham called the officiating "that of a typical game." Sixteen fouls were called against Carolina and 13 on Florida State. "I'm- disappointed it ended this way," said Durham. "I just wish the clock had run out." Davidson pulled away from George Washington in the last six minutes to run its record to 15-1, six straight in the Southern Conference.
