69-5 1 Victory over Iowa Disappoints Indiana Coach The Indiana basketball team won, but didn't win artistically enough to please Bobby Knight. The Indiana crowd yelled, but didn't yell enthusiastically enough to please Bobby Knight. _ In fact, nothing pleased Bobby Knight, especially after an off night in shooting by the Hoosiers. "I thought oar play offensively in this game was the worst I've seen since I've been here," said Knight after his llth-rank- ed Hoosiers routed Iowa 69-51 Thursday night despite a poor 33 percent shooting performance from the field. The Hawkeyes didn't do much better with 36 percent, and contributed a basketful of turnovers, and therein was the story of their Big Ten opener. Mike Woodson and Wayne Radford combined for 31 points and led a game-breaking, eight- "Anv Hm » o v e r : an VimL y?U .u"" 1 .. bal1 you ran TM ? m u first half ' e'sewhJJ ·* ^ I** 8 ~ nd go Lute oS 'w. hT C ° aCh an lm " was But I ti'nt ?K ° r Certain * was for ,?« ' 1 Jre P utatlon for us » the bl 8gest hassle, ° Wn W ° rst T ° P W .

Washington Coach Gets Hefty 4-year Contract .SEATTLE (AP) - Football including victories over South- Loach Don James has torn up ern Cal, which went on to win four-year pact that may make him the best-paid coach on the West Coast. UW Athletic Director Mike Lude said the new pact for the Rose Bowl-winning coach takes effect this fall and runs through 1981. "Last year Mike White (California football coach, sub- the young and inexperienced Huskies were 5-6. A 25-point performance by Dwight Williams led Providence over Brown. The Friars broke the game open with a 124 streak midway through the second half. Earvin Johnson scored 31 points and paced a' furious comeback late in the second half to help Michigan State beat Minnesota. Mycfral Thompson, who recently returned from NCAA suspension, was the Gophers' top scorer with 27 points. Johnny High and Michael 3ray ignited a second-half rally :o pull Nevada-Reno back from a 17-point deficit and give the Wolf Pack its stunning West Coast Athletic Association victory over San Francisco. Trailing 68-51 with 10:32 remaining, Reno outscored USF 21-2 to take the lead 72-70 on a basket by Gray with six minutes left. After USF's Winford Boynes scored on a jump shot to tie the game, Reno center Edgar d Jones scored two free throws and a field goal to give the Wolf Pack a 76-72 lead with 1:48 to go. The Dons pulled to within two points three times, but High made four free throws and Steve Hunter added two more to clinch the victory. "When we were 17 down, I just told the guys to do some gambling," said Nevada-Reno Coach Jini Carey.

Miller's team had the best American Conference record U2-2) in the regular season, then knocked off the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-21 and defending NFL champion Oakland 20-17 in the AFC title game. He received 58 of the 84 votes cast by a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters, three from each league city. Don Shula of the Miami Dolphins received 25 votes. The remaining vote went to Leeman Bennett of the Atlanta Falcons. By the close of the 1976 season, some of Denver's players were sufficiently unhappy to openly demand a coaching change. So Robert Miller, who had spent 17 years as an assistant coach in the pros, the last four developing New England's explosive offense, was hired. He succeeded John Ralston as head coach of the discontented Broncos, also-rans from the day they were born in the American Football League in 1960 until last year, a team which didn't even post a winning season until 1973. It was also Miller's second term with 5he Broncos. He was their of- I'ensive line coach from 1953-65, "He's one in a million," said Lyle Alzado, Denver's All-Pro defensive end. "I'd go out and riie for that man." Miller's first major move was lo acquire Craig Morton, a discontented backup quarterback to Roger Staubach at Dallas and an ineffective starter with the New York Giants for a dozen years. It was a one-for-one deal. The Broncos got Morton, the Giants got quarterback Steve Ramsey. Morton became the AFC's No.2 passer. Ramsey was cut before the season began. "Red is a most unusual man." said Morton. "When I first met him, 1 felt something special was about to happen. At our first meeting he said we were coming into' a unique situd ation. a new quarterback and a new coach coming to a team that was 9-5. He said, 'We can do an awful lot with this team. Let's get together and do it.' I said I was excited, too." The Broncos' season began with victories over St. Louis Buffalo. Seattle and Kansas City. But wait, the experts said. Let's see what happens when they have to play Oakland, the defending Super Bowl champions, five-time division champions and winners in 26 of 34 games against Denver.
