D2C Asbury Park PressThursday, March 8, 1990 Sports Wire N.C. State seeks state assistance COLLEGE BASKETBALL North Carolina State I brought in the state Attorney General's ! office and a private attorney to negotiate J the termination of basketball coach Jim j Valvano's contract. The executive committee of the N.C. State board of J , trustees, in a conference call, gave a vote of t support to the university administrators handling the talks with Valvano and his r lawyer. The committee also voted to seek J private counsel to represent the university. J-, "We would expect to have a resolution of -, the problem, as far as the university is concerned, shortly," said NCSU trustee Troy Doby of Raleigh, one of the executive i. committee members Princeton center i Kit Mueller, described by coach Pete Carril as the best low post man in his 23 years at the school, was named the Ivy j . League basketball player of the year yesterday Mike Deane says he expects to return this fall to coach Siena College's basketball team, despite published reports linking him to the vacant head coaching job at the University of Miami Murray Arnold resigned as Western Kentucky's basketball coach, and the school president bid him farewell by saying Arnold ran a clean program but it was time for a new coach. PRO FOOTBALL A new snag has arisen in the effort to lure the'Los Angeles Raiders back to their original home, leaving the mayor worried and another leading public official behind the bid "real disappointed." The main problem, according to Alameda County supervisors chairman Don Perata, is a faulty estimate by architects of the cost of renovating the Oakland Coliseum Wayne Huizenga, chairman of Blockbuster Entertainment Corp., has agreed to buy 1 5 percent of the Miami Dolphins and a 50-percent share of Robbie Stadium Corp. The purchase will boost efforts to bring a major league baseball franchise to south Florida and give the Dolphins' organization the equity it needs to expand, Huizenga and Dolphins' president Tim Robbie said Chicago Bears' quarterback Mike Tomczak has launched an endowment to fund a grant- in-aid for Ohio State quarterbacks, university officials said. Tomczak will give a total of $ 1 00,000 over the next five years. TENNIS: Jennifer Capriati upset 1 Sth-seeded Claudia Porwik of West Germany for her second straight professional victory at the Virginia Slims of Florida in Boca Raton. Capriati, 1 3. followed her successful pro debut one day earlier by beating Porwik, ranked 34th in the world, 7-5, 0-6, 6-2. Seven seeded players advanced, but No. 1 6 Sylvia Hanika also lost. She was beaten 6-1 , 2-6, 6-2 by South African Amanda Coetzer. . . . Andre Agassi has decided not to play in the Davis Cup matches against Czechoslovakia later this month, saying that he doesn't feel he would be well prepared. He will be replaced by Aaron Krickstein, ranked No. 6 in the world while Agassi is No. 8. BOXING: Pernell Whitaker, the I BF and WBC lightweight champion, is the winner of the Edward J. Neil Award as fighter of the year for 1 990. In voting by the Boxing Writers Association of America The WBO heavyweight title fight between Italy's Francesco Damiani and South African Pierre Coetzer, scheduled for March 24, was postponed for a third time. Promoters said Damiani, the WBO champion, had a fever. No new date was announced, but promoters said the fight would still be in Milan, Italy's indoor arena Former welterweight contender Gypsy Joe Harris, whose promising boxing career ended with the discovery that he had concealed blindness in one eye, died at age 44. SOCCER: Saskia Webber, the freshman goalie on the Rutgers University women's soccer team, has been selected as a member of the U.S. Junior National team. Webber, a first team All-State selection from Princeton High School, posted four shutouts and had an 85 percent save percentage. FIGURE SKATING: A sensational performance by Kurt Browning inspired an even more spectacular routine by Viktor Petrenko at the World Figure Skating Championships in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After Browning, the defending champion from Canada, received a perfect 6.0 and six 5.9s for his original program, Petrenko went him one better. The Soviet, who won a bronze medal in the 1 988 Olympics but has struggled since, earned two 6.0s, one 5.8 and four 5.9s in a program similar to Browning's, spiced with modern music Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov won their fourth title pairs title in five years at the World Figure Skating Championships. SKIING: Einar Bonnier of Vermont won the giant slalom in the NCAA ski championships with a spectacular finish that included a broken ski, broken pole and a bruised left leg. Bohmcr fell as he crossed the finish line on his second run and did all the damage, including a tear on the left leg of his ski suit, but he still edged Chris Pedersen of Colorado. Anke Friedrich and Katja Lesjak gave Utah a one-two finish in the women's giant slalom. TRACK AND FIELD: Andrew Valmon, the ex-Manchester High and Seton Hall star, is still unbeaten in Greece. For the second straight year, Valmon has won the 400-meter dash in the Athina indoor meet in Athens. He did it yesterday in 46. 1 8 seconds, beating American teammates Danny Harris (46.44), Ray Pierre (47.54) and Marlin Cannon (47.60.) Valmon had won the '89 Athina 400 title in 46.01. . . . Another New Jersey winner was 60-meter high hurdler Jack Pierce of Woodbury in 7.60. Top mark in the meet was Soviet star Rodion Gataulin's pole vault of 19 feet, 4 'A inches, equaling his own meet record.

Short Stops Good choice Scouting director Tony Razzano of the San Francisco 49ers told the Sporting News that he and John Ralston, then the team's vice president of administration, both wanted to draft Joe Montana in the third round in 1979, but Bill Walsh wanted Steve Dils, who had played for him at Stanford. Said Ralston: "We kept going back and forth, and Tony kept insisting on Montana. "Bill yelled at me and said, 'Get me one more recommendation on Joe Montana.' "I called Dan Devine, the coach at Notre Dame, and he said, 'John, if I had Joe Montana, I'd still be head coach in Green Bay.' That was enough for Bill. He took Montana. "But when the Vikings drafted Dils a few picks later, bang! Bill slammed his fist down on the table and said, 'Dammit, I knew we should have taken Steve.'" Trivia time What do Ted Hendricks, Pancho Segura and Rick Barry have in common? Pot-shotting Here are a couple of Jim Brown opinions as excerpted from his book, "Out of Bounds," by Kevin E. Boone of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: On Mike Ditka: "He reminds me of many of the coaches back in the NFL of the 1 950s: fascist, loud ... but not exactly Phi Beta Kappa." On O.J. Simpson: "The Juice likes to pretend he's modest, but that's just the Juice, being the Juice. However phony the guy, O.J. the runner was the genuine item." Out of tune Former NHL coach Harry Neale, now a TV analyst, on his problems in Detroit: "I heard my best center say to my best defenseman during the national anthem, 'Every time I hear this song, I have a terrible game.' " Photo finish President Jerry Colangelo of the Phoenix Suns, asked by the Oakland Tribune if the vote was unanimous to give Commissioner David Stern a $27.5-million contract over five years, said: "Let's put it this way. After looking at the package, one owner choked, two guys were flabbergasted and another guy just fainted. Otherwise, we were totally unified." Associated Press INDOOR STORM Tyrone Bogues of the Charlotte Hornets looks up at the source of a leak in the roof of Denver's McNichols Sports Arena as NBA referee Mike Mathis watches a ballboy mop up melted snow that dripped onto the floor and delayed Tuesday night's Nuggets-Hornets game for 40 minutes. Trivia answer All three went to the University of Miami. Quotebook Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics on coaches: "Every coach wears thin. Sooner or later, every coach is going to get to you. And I'm sure the players get to them, too." TRANSACTIONS j u The Los Angeles Times SPORTS ON TV THIS AFTERNOON 5 p.m. ESPN College Basketball. Trans America Athletic Conference Tournament.
