[Albion Winner Vs. W. Frankfort Champ ^3 Luck Against Chicago Teams In State Draw Girl Jockey Wins In Racing Debut Sports 44.2 Average Maravich Closing In On Big 0, Big E Records NEW YORK (AP) — No season scoring record appear safe from Pete Maravich—not even his own. The Louisiana State sharpshooter is closing in on the two- season, sophomore-junior scoring mark of 1,5)62 points set by Oscar Robertson in 1959-60 and the- record two-year total of 2,095 by Elvin Hayes in 1967-68. Maravich needs to average only in the mid-20s the rest of this season to shatter both marks. Only a junior, Maravich also lias his sights set on Robertson's career total of 2,973. The 6-foot-5 forward presently is averaging 46.1 points a game in statistics released today by the National Collegiate Sports Services. However, it dropped to -i 44.2 after he was held to 21 pojnts by Tennessee Monday night. That puts him in position to crack the single season record average of 43.8 he set last year when he scored 1,138 points. He already has 553 points in 12 games this season. Cal Murphy, Niagara's 5-10 jumping jack who came along at the wrong time, still is a distant second with a 34.3 average after finishing last season as runner-up to Maravich with a I 38.2 average, the fourth highest in history. But both Maravich and Murphy must play second fiddle to Lew Alcindor, UCLA's overpowering 7 -1% giant who is closing iiir -on a milestone himself. Alcindor, averaging 26.6 points a game for ninth place, needs onjy 23 points to join the select 2,000-point career club. Big Lew also closed in on the fiejd goal percentage leader, Al Kroboth of The Citadel, hitting 65 .2 per cent to Kroboth's 65.4. Larry Ward of Centenary retained his free throw percentage lead at 94 per cent and Larry Lewis of St. Francis, Pa., held his narrow rebounding lead over Detroit's Spencer Haywood, 21.6 to 21.3.

Leading the charge for the fat ?30,000 winner's purse was San Diego 's own Billy Casper, who bagged most of the swag— 52,05,168 last year—and a man who has read the tournament course like a book. , The setting is the Torrey Pines Municipal course, which has par 36-36—72. It will play about 6,800 yards when the PGA tournament officials get through recasting the third hole, which opjinarily is a par-3 158-yard gThe only ones missing from thfc elite top 20 money guys are Tj|n Weiskopf and Arnold Palmar. Weiskopf is in the Army, attfl Arnie just decided • ( wT tour winners as yet. But ready to tee off were Charlie Sifford, who won ?20,000 in a playoff with South Africa's Harold Henning in the Los Angeles Open, and Miller Barber, who collected $13,500 in the rain-abbreviated Kaiser International at Napa, Calif. And the third winner is George Archer, the hero of the rain-beset Bing Crosby clambake at Pebble Beach. The victory was worth $25,000—a substantial sum compared to the $29 he carried away in finishing far down the line in the Andy Williams-San Diego Tournament a year ago. HEMPSTEAD, N.Y.
