THE PALM BEACH POST WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1989 3C Officials earning their stripes the hard way if m This has not been an easy year for college basketball officials. ; Consider: Purdue coach Gene Ready, after a loss to Indiana, just about : shattered a podium when he pound-' ed his fist three times during a i press conference. "When a player gets bumped in the lane," Ready said, his voice rising with his fist, : "that's (bam!) a foul." ESPN and ABC analyst Dick Vitale has widely criticized Big 10 ; referees, saying that "the officiat- ing in this league is not up to par with the playing and coaching." Oklahoma coach Billy Tubbs . received a technical when he i grabbed the public address micro- " phone during a game against Missouri and said, "No matter how tprrihlp the rtffiniaHner ic Hnn'f i throw things." Ole Miss coach Ed Murphy ana Georgia coacn Mugn Diirnam cumpiduieu auuui non-cans in lasi- second, one- and two-point losses at I; Vanderbilt. Said Murphy: "Every- body works 40 minutes, but some- ter Pervis Ellison in the last second of a 77-75 loss to UCLA. "I don't think there's a UCLA fan who believes that was goaltending," Louisville coach Denny Crum said. "There's always a lot of criticism and complaints in February," said SEC Supervisor of Officials John Guthrie, who added he is not unhappy with the officiating in his league. "That's when we have what we call 'February Fever.' Teams are working for an NCAA bid and high seeds in conference tournaments. . . . (Criticism) comes with territory. And it's an outgrowth of what's going on nationwide. There's a lot of public discontent coming out of the Big 10 and that spreads throughout the country." Evansville senior Scott Haffner's career high was 33 points, until he played against Dayton last week. Haffner a 6-foot-4 guard made 23-of-29 shots (11-of-13 three-pointers) in scoring 65 points. "It was painful to watch, but it was beautiful," Dayton coach Don Donoher said. Evansville won 109-83. Had Dayton held Haffner to one point above his previous career high, Dayton would have won. . . . Haffner also had 33 points against Cincinnati and 32 against Xavier last week, giving him a three-game, 130-point week. . . . Georgia Tech forward David Whitmore, who has a 42 -inch vertical leap, is afraid of heights Think about this: The only reason Chris Jackson of LSU might not be voted first-team All-America is because he's a freshman, and that really doesn't seem fair. . . . Surprise, surprise. Miami is in position to possibly join Florida State and Florida assuming those two are selected in the 64-team NCAA Tournament field. The Hurricanes are 16-10 with games remaining at Texas (16-9) tonight and Oral Roberts (6-18) and home against Davidson (6-22), Savannah State (11-13) and Florida International (9-15). Winning four games would give UM 20 victories and put them on the precarious bubble for 162-144, said he'd like his team to play a perfect game, which would be about 240 points. "So 160 is kind of dabbling in mediocrity," Westhead said. . . . John Feinstein, author of A Season on the Brink, the book about Bob Knight's Indiana Hoo-siers, points out in a Basketball Times column that John Thompson, widely praised for his walkout in protest of Proposition 42, accepted Michael Graham into school. Feinstein said Graham didn't graduate from high school, but did receive a high-school equivalency degree. He helped the Hoyas win one national title, then flunked out of Georgetown. . . . Oklahoma forward Tyrone Jones after a 122-86 win over Colorado: "We played pretty hard, considering it was Colorado." . . . Temple's Mark Macon is shooting just 40.9 percent from the floor (33.7 percent from three-point range). . . . Ohio State coach Gary Williams wept openly at a press conference when he announced guard Jay Burson would be lost for the season because of a broken vertebra in his neck. ' earning a bid. . . . The Louisville Courier-Journal started shoveling dirt on the future of Kentucky coach Eddie Sutton when it quoted from the school's response to the NCAA that Sutton may have told a high-school coach "to give false and misleading information to the NCAA" during the investigation into the Wildcats program. According to the paper, UR's response acknowledges the allegation "is substantially correct" and goes on to say that additional information the school gathered may suggest wrongdoing by Sutton, who has a clause in his contract allowing his dismissal for NCAA violations. . . . Luc Longley, a 7-2 center from Australia who plays for New Mexico, blocked a shot in the last seconds to preserve a victory over Brigham Young. At halftime of that game, his 6-10 father Richard, on his first visit to the United States, sank a half-court shot to win $500 for a charity. . . . Paul Westhead, after Loyola-Marymount beat U.S. International Daren Chandler scored 20 points to lead five players in double figures as the Mocs (16-11) defeated the Rams (11-13). UTC's Daren Chandler hit a three-pointer with 3:33 left in the game to put UTC ahead for good 72-69. lona 123, Holy Cross 113 NEW ROCHELLE, NY. -Nestor Payne scored 35 points six in overtime as the Gaels (12-15, 6-6) set a school record for points with a victory over the Crusaders (13-13, 5-8) in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play.

Pacers open with Seahawks at conference tournament Q Potter ll3IB IllJi SCOTTS FERTILIZER At Lainhart & Potter. We Make Shopping Easier By CHUCK OTTERSON Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI Palm Beach Community College plays Broward CC at 6 p.m. today in the opening game of the Southern Conference men's basketball tournament at Miami-Dade South.

PBCC coach Scott Pospichal plans to start guards Chris Rose and Danny Stubbs, forwards Jon Fedor and Earl Barnett and 6-foot-11 center Peter Dreyer. "We're healthy right now," Pospichal said Tuesday. "Jon (Fedor) has a little problem with the flu but he'll be ready to go. "We're really pleased with the way things are going. Whatever happens, I guarantee our kids'll go out and compete." Pospichal's Pacers finished the regular season with a conference record of 6-4. They lost two games to conference champion Miami-Dade North, swept Indian River and Edison and split with Broward and Dade South.
