Oakland took a 70-55 lead into the last half after blowing a 15-point lead in the first period. The Oaks were in front 34-27 after the first period. Barry scored the first points of the game with 15-foot Jumper from the keyhole with 11:34 left to play in the first quarter. But It was not Barry who sparked the Western Division leaders to a 28-13 advantage with 4:13 in the first quarter. It was the Oaks' 137-129. Three Floridians Dan Sparks, Wes (Big Game) Hunter and Willie Murrell fouled out in the game that featured constant verbal exchanges from both benches to officials. Miami Coach Jim Pollard drew one technical late in the period Wien Hunter fouled out. The win makes Oakland 81 in the Western Division. Miami is now 3-4 in the Eastern Division. Doug Moe, 6-5 former North Carolina star, shared game high scoring honors with Barry. Don ketball Association at the Miami Beach Convention Center and his Oakland Oaks were never in serious trouble Sunday except once In the second period. Barry ended with 30 points before fouling out with 1:48 In the game. The high-strung super star restrained himself but gave a gesture to throw the ball through the convention roof and he left to a chorus of booes. Barry was pushed and shoved all night in an apparent attempt to upset him. It did not work and In the end the Oaks prevailed, By ED PLAISTED Executive Sports Editor MIAMI BEACH (AFN) - It was Rick Barry night but the former University of Miami basketball Ail-American got a lukewarm welcome from the fans here and a bruising one from the Miami Floridians. The biggest cheer of the night was not for Barry but for a football player the Miami Dolphins Jack Clancy, who was announced as part of the crowd 6,102. Barry scored the first points of the night in this American Bas Offensive Prep ceremonies. . . Ron Godfrey. U of Miami basketball coach, presented Barry with a trophy . . .

Tickets can be obtained in West Palm at Jordans, Burdines and West Palm Beach Auditorium. Alex Hannum and Jim Pollard conducted a pre-game clinic for more than 2,000 school boys. Back Of Week balanced attack and fast break that featured Larry Brown, Warren Armstrong and Moe. The Floridians did not quit. They fought back like they did against the New Orlenas Bucs Wednesday night and they did it without the services of their 6-foot-10 centers Skip Thoren and Gary Keller, both of whom sat on the bench for the second period. With 5:15 left in the second quarter Irv Inninger's jump cut the Miami gap to one, 38-3". The two teams stayed neck-to-neck for the next three minutes but slowly class began to tell and the Oaks began to pull away again. The first half was enlivened by a pushing match between Barry and Sparks. With 6:59 both players had to be separated by players and officials after a brief scuffle. Barry was shoved and pushed throughout the first half but the officials chose to ignore it. At least four times he was knocked to the floor but was not slowed up a bit. Barry led all first half scorers with 17 points while Hunter kept Miami in the game with 14. COURT SPLINTERS - Barry was honored by Coral Gables city officials during halftime By DON BOYKIN Staff Writer Roger Coffey, Delray Carver High football Coach, admits he likes to have his quarterback put the ball in the air as much as possible. And why shouldn't he when the Carver quarterback is someone who has passed for 1,202 yards in eight games, completed 76 of 136 attempts and has thrown 17 touchdown passes. The Carver quarterback is Anthony Penn, who, believe it or not, is only a Junior. "I was a quarterback in college," Coffey said, "So I guess this is the reason why I like to have a passing team. And Anthony certainly does a tremendous job of making our air game go." Penn was at his usual brilliant style last Friday night as the Eagles dumped North Shore, 22-0. The 6-foot, 170-pound signal caller connected on 17 of 34 pitches for 179 yards and one touchdown. For his outstanding night, Penn is the Post-Times Offensive Player of the Week. Penn has been the mover of the Carver offense this season " " " t ' iy " " " i or 4 fx??v 'U . . r-rr ffi- ' that has rolled up 248 points en Coffey describes Penn as the "He has mastered the art of Maliska Tells About Bulldogs has tremendous poise for a junior and he is a bright boy with an A-average in school. "His leadership on the field is so dynamic that it really makes the team go. If the other team gives him the time he will put the ball there." Obviously, Carver's opponents have geen giving Penn Just a little too much time as he passing statistics will prove.

When I tired to kick to one of the other two, Scott drifted over and caught it anyway, so I finally started kicking high and short to prevent a runback. As far as the remainder of this season goes, I can promise you that we will get out and fight the rest of the way. I know that every player on this team plays as hard as they can. The fans have really amazed me the way they have been down on us this season. Even when we were 4-0 they were asking 'What is wrong with theGators'? But the fans were not on the field, we are. We play the football and we do the best we can. Eight Run At Laurel LAUREL, Md.

(AP) - Kay Stephenson, who won the starting quarterback job, suffered a broken left collarbone Sunday as the Buffalo Bills lost their American Football League game to the Miami Dolphins 21-17. He will be lost for the season, leaving the bills with only rookie Dan Darragh and Ed Rut-kowskl, a veteran at most positions except that of signal caller. Stephenson said he fractured his shoulder on the second play of the third quarter, when he scrambled for a 12-yard run. Coach Harvey Johnson said he had planned to meet Monday with his staff to consider asking league permission to reactivate Jack Kemp, who has been out of action with a left knee injury. Bills' owner Ralph Wilson vetoed the idea.

By PAUL MALISKA Florida Splitend GAINESVILLE (AFN) -When you lose 51-0 you can't make any excuses. Georgia beat the heck out of us and overall they are the best team we have played this year. They jumped on us quick and they did not let up one second, v Our game plan was to run at them but we could not get a thing going. Georgia's defense was pretty much what we thought it would be. Juke Scott (Georgia's All-America safetv) overlapped a lot on pass coverage, as we expected and their line put on a good rush. When we got way behind in the second period we had to start throwing but we were restricted by the wet field. The center of the field had about an inch of water standing on it so this meant we had to run sideline routes in order to assure some kind of footing. On a wet day of course, a receiver always has an advantage over the defense. He knows the route he is running and can be careful on his cuts. A defensive back is a lot more susceptable to fakes and he can't react as quickly. Believe it or not, the ball was not very slippery Saturday. When I handled It in punt formation I did not have any trouble at all. Kim Helton centered the ball softly and the refs kept It pretty dry. I tried to kick away from Scott Judy Rankin Takes Golf CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex.

Quarterback Bob Griese sparked the Dolphins' drive, running 13 yards for a touchdown, passing five yards to Karl Noonan for another and setting up Jim Klick's four-yard TD run with a pair of passes that covered 40 yards.
