While participating in the race for the league title, Arizona State and Texas-El Paso suffered strained relations Saturday. Now Phoenix and El Paso never have been what you'd call kissing cousins. There was a little flareup once over the "recruitment" of Phoenix footballers Fred Carr and Bob Wallace by the Miners. And some less-than-cordial exchanges over Sun Bowl selection capers. You should see some of the letters I get whenever I refer to that jewel of a city as Baja New Mexico, or a suburb ' of Juarez. . . . One of these years I'm going to have to get somebody to translate them , for. me. Anyway, the two schools hardly did anything Saturday to cement future friendship. . . v Unless you are talking about the kind of cement used to encase a cadaver prior to deposit at the bottom of a local river. Of course the Salt and Rio Grande, due to a basic lack of water, leave considerable to be desired for such activity. And speaking of leaving considerable to be desired, that brings us around to UTEP's basketball fans. A great many of them have de- velopcd the amazing ability to throw something (quarters, pesos) with one hand, flip something (half of the traditional peace sign) with the other hand, while'? .'uttering incessant streams of vulgarities.

Come to think of it, many of them DO usually end up on the floor, though they are not bedecked in the traditional Miner uniform. Sun Devil coach Ned Wulk is sizzling over the abuse heaped upon his club during the game and during the perilous journey to the locker room afterward. The sizzle undoubtedly will turn 'to a simmer, however, as Ned looks ahead to the final two weeks of the season. The mathematics of it all are pretty simple at this late stage. If the Devils beat Wyoming, Colorado State and Arizona in Tempe nobody can catch them. If the Devils lose one and the Miners sweep against Utah and BYU on the road and New Mexico at home, the two teams will tie for the title. Arizona, two down with three to play, appears out of the, title picture unless the Sun Devils stumble this weekend. But the Wildcats are a good bet to attend a post-season tournament somewhere. We're going to have something new on the local professional baseball scene this year. The Phoenix Giants have announced plans to televise 13 games 11 at home and two from Tucson. Each team in the Pacific Coast League East will be seen at least twice and each team' in the PCL West at least once. Channel 21 will originate the telecasts with Pete Solomon doing the play-by-play. The first telecast will be the season opener April 10 against Salt Lake City. All of the TV games will be Wednesday or Thursday night affairs. week award. Kagele was co-winner of the John G.

Suns dump Milicaukee Special to The Republic MADISON, Wis. - Dennis Awtrey's first basketball game as a 27-year-old is something Kareem Abdul-Jabar won't soon forget. Awtrey, who turned 27 Saturday, scored a career high 24 points Sunday as the Phoenix Suns upended Milwaukee, 106-97. The victory terminated the Phoenix losing streak at five games and allowed the Suns to gain ground on second place Seattle in the NBA Pacific. Phoenix (25-33) now is two and one-half games behind Seattle and has a trip-concluding date Tuesday against the Warriors in Oakland. Abdul-Jabar, the league's No. 3 scorer, totaled 28 points but Awtrey and an effective Phoenix defense kept . the seven-foot-two Bucks' center from dominating the game. Five other Suns scored in double figures as Phoenix defeated Milwaukee for the first time in three tries this season. Milwaukee led by 11 points in the second period before the Suns launched a comeback. Four consecutive free throws in the third period by Charlie Scott gave the Suns a 66-63 lead they never relinquished. PHOENIX (106) Bantom Perry Awtrey Helchionnl Vanarsdale Erlckson Scott E.

Associated Press , LOS ANGELES - Steady Pat Fitz-Simons studiously ignored the growing pressure, carefully constructed a last-round 70 and scored his first professional victory by a comfortable four strokes Sunday in the Glen Campbell-Los Angeles Open Golf Tournament. The 24-year-old FitzSimons, who took a six-stroke lead by firing a course-record 64 in Saturday's third round, was one under par in his last 18 holes over the demanding 7,028-yard Riviera Country Club course and finished with a 275 total. FitzSimons, a previously obscure performer who hadn't made expenses in his first two seasons on the pro tour, Scores, Page B-5 birdied his first hole and was never really challenged by the strongest field of the year. Jack Nicklaus and Tom Kite made the biggest runs at the surprise winner but they were just too far back to catch up. Kite took second with a last-round. 68 and a 279 total. Nicklaus had the best round of the mild, sunny day, a six-under-par 65, and finished at 280, five strokes back. His publicized duel with Johnny Miller the young man who's challenging Jack as the game's leading player never materialized. Miller, a three-time winner this year, knocked himself out of any title contention with a triple-bogey seven on the second hole and finished with a 74 and a 287 total. U.S. Open champion Hale Irwin and Tom Weiskopf tied for fourth at 282. Irwin had a closing 67, Weiskopf 68. Tom Watson, Billy Casper, Jim Dent and Jerry Magee were at 283. Casper shot 69, Dent and Magee 70s, and Watson 71. Arnold Palmer managed a last-round 69, his best score of the tourney, and was at 290. First-round leader Lee Trevino had a 74 and a 292 total. No one ever got closer to the red-haired FitzSimmons than the four-stroke final margin. "The key factor was that no one made an early move at him," said Kite. "I birdied three of four holes in one stretch on the back nine. If I'd done that on the front side and he had 12 or 15 holes to think about it, that might have made a difference." Fitzsimmons had a two-putt birdie on the first hole, bogeyed the third from a bunker, but got a deuce on the tough, 234-yard fourth hole. Then the young man who had never before really challenged for a tour title did exactly what he had to do. He reeled off a string of 14 consecutive pars. Not all of them were easy. He had to one-putt the 6th, 7th and 8th holes to save par and needed a 10-footer for par on the 12th. And he scored what he called a "miraculous par" on the 17th. He drove into a fairway bunker on 17 and had to play the ball back to the fairway. Then he was short to the right in three, finally reached the green in four and holed a 20-foot downhill putt for his par. That sent him to No. 18 with a four-stroke advantage. 'AH I had to do was make something less than eight. I figured I could handle that," he said. He did and collected $30,000 from the total purse of $150,000. The big check amounted to more than the total of his earnings for his first two seasons on the tour. Giant's Barr dinner guest San Francisco Giants' pitcher Jim Barr has joined the list of speakers for the 26th annual Arizona Sports Awards dinner Tuesday night at the Townell-ouse. Barr, former University of Southern Cal star and Phoenix Giants standout, compiled a 13-9 record for the 1974 San Francisco Club and his 2.74 earned run average was seventh best in the National League. The Giants' player representative, Barr also is a popular speaker at numerous Bay Area functions. Baseball humorist Bob Uecker will be master of ceremonies, and will be joined at the rostrum by Oakland Athletics slugger Reggie Jackson, Alabama football coach Bear Bryant, California Seals' goalie Gary Simmons, Buffalo Bills receiver J.D. Hill and former ASU baseball coach and ex-California Angels manager Bobby Winkles. The dinner also will honor the state's top amateur and professional athletes and coach of the year. Tickets, priced at $17.50, will be available at the door Tuesday night. 1 1 j v ' : I fW ' 1 - ' ' ' " j s ,.'- , - - zb ." , ' Associated Pre Pat FitzSimons relishes bagging another bird as he starts Sunday's final round of the Glen Campbell Los Angeles Open off right on the first hole. ; (Section B) Page 3 Monday, Feb. 24, 1975 St Mary's still out as AIA rejects plea By DON The Arizona Interscholastic Association Executive Board stood firm in a Saturday hearing, denying St. Mary's High School a warning instead of probation which would have allowed the basketball team to participate in the Class AAA Skyline Division playoffs. The board has eliminated 11 schools from playoffs because of three different rulings including interschool scrimmage before the legal starting date of Dec. 1, a junior varsity tournament (barred by AIA rules) during the Christmas holidays and violation of the game limitation. Each school is limited to 19 regular season games plus one tournament "This is the fifth year that JV tournaments has gone on," said St. Mary's principal Lou LaScala. It doesn't excuse the violation. But we asked for a warning since we turned ourselves in." St. Mary's is on probation for participating in a JV tournament during the Christmas holidays., Oh That Tiger sure was in capturing TP feature By CARL SOTO Oh That Tiger, who's been nothing but that since his fall debut at Turf Paradise, raced to his third victory in four 1975 outings Sunday in accounting for the $4,000 Phoenix Gazette Handicap. With Jack Arterburn aboard for the second time running they teamed for a triumph, the Kentucky-bred son of Lurullah took the measure of eight three - year - old rivals with a 1:37 15 performance for the mile contest. That was good enough to earn a half-length decision for Oh That Tiger, who hasn't been out of the money in eight trips postward at TP starting with a third-place finish on opening day last October? Hard-riding apprentice Ross Allar-dyce didn't have a ipount in the feature, but he snared saddle honors Charts, Page B-6 for the day by booting home three winners including $58 surpriser Miss Be Good in the secondary feature. In the main attraction, the fans rightly made Oh That Tiger the favorite and Rudarco, second choice, proved to be nothing but a disappointment in winding up seventh. Mike Bush, an 18-to-l chance with Alex Maese in the irons', cut out all the pace and had Prince O' Spring as closest company for the first six furlongs. Racing third, a few lengths off the HULBURT "We told the board the JV and varsity players and the varsity coaches didn't know about the tournament rule. "St. Mary's would certainly support a court decision," said LaScala in reference to a request for a restraining order to enjoin the AIA from barring the 11 schools from state playoffs. The class action suit was filed on behalf of Bob Horner and Richard Zucker of Apollo, George Sanchez and James Marsh of North, and Larry Moore and Mickey Sledge of Phoenix Union. A hearing will be held this morning in U.S. District Court. "I hate to go through the courts and I think we need a governing body like the AIA. We can't take away what they've done. I would have to go through the diocese and probably the Bishop before anything legal could be done by St. Mary's," explained LaScala. "I still have faith St. Mary's will be there (in the playoffs). I have to believe there's going to be justice," concluded LaScala. leader with two furlongs to run, Arterburn then made his move with Oh That Tiger and the Cal Johnson-trained runner outfinished Mike Bush in the run for home. Mike Bush, holding on gamely under Maese's handling bowed by half a length while holding second money safe by one length over Prince O' Spring. Mike Bush paid $9 and 5.20, with Prince O'Spring $3.80 to show. In the six-furlong seventh for allowance caliber fillies and mares, Victorian Battler and Bobbing Bo both coming up to the race off winning efforts were made the one-two choices. Both, however, failed to make the board. Bobbling Bo did lead the pack all the way into the straightaway, where Lady of the Sea and Miss Be Good began to press Salustio Burgos mount. And as the leader ran out of gas, Miss Be Good went to the front and withstood Cona by half a length as Ladyofthesea settled for third money. Miss Be Good, owned by A. A. Jones of Denver and conditioned by M. G. Hadley, stepped the six panels in 1:10 flat in scoring her first victory since last December when the filly ran on an "off" track. Allardyce's other winners were Mystic Victory ($10.20) in the second race and Hard Woodson, who beat out Shakey Ruler in a two-horse stretch duel in the nightcap and returned $11 for each win ticket. r i
