The victory boosted the Spartans' record to 6-2 for the season. The game was extra special for Marymount head coach Frank Evans. Evans coached at Southwest Baptist two years ago. "It did have extra meaning," Evans said. "I knew everyone on the other team and most of their fans, too. I recruited most of the players on their team." The Spartans were down by 12 points early in the game, but battled back to take the lead with three minutes left in the first half. Marymount never trailed after that and led by as many as 10 points in the second half. "We played a lot harder than we have been in other games," Evans said. Marymount shot 52.6 percent from the field (30-of-57) and had a 42-30 advantage in the rebounding department. Young and Phil Hamilton each pulled down nine rebounds and Mike Davert grabbed eight. Rollins led the Spartans with 16 points, Smith added 14 and Young scored 12. Keith Miller paced Southwest Baptist with 15 points and seven rebounds.

Kemp, Lemon swapped in trade DETROIT (UPI) - The Detroit Tigers, reportedly unwilling to pay Steve Kemp $1 million per year, have traded the outfielder in a one-for-one exchange of American League All-Stars. The Tigers Friday sent Kemp — unsigned for next season and eligible to become a free agent next fall — to the Chicago White Sox for outfielder Chet Lemon. Lemon is also approaching free agency, a Tiger spokesman said. The Tigers, who offered Kemp $750,000 per year, apparently decided they could not meet the demand for |1 million and would probably lose him to free agency at the end of next season. Kemp, a member of the 1979 AL Ail- Star team, was paid $600,000 last year by the Tigers on a one-year contract but was was reportedly asking for $1 million per year and a long-term contract. The Tigers recently offered him $750,000 per year for five years but he rejected it. Lemon, 26, is a two-time AL All-Star who batted .302 in 1981.

Two of the country's top five teams were startled with opening-game losses while two other ranked teams romped to easy wins. At Los Angeles, Fred Roberts scored 15 of his 23 points in the second half to rally Brigham Young University to a 79-75 upset over second-ranked UCLA in a non-conference game and spoil Larry Farmer's debut as the Bruins' head coach. The Cougars, who knocked UCLA out of the NCAA tournament last March, were down 37-32 at halftime and trailed 51-43 early in the second half. But they outscored UCLA 14-4 in a little less than six minutes to take a 61-57 lead and went ahead for good 68-67 with 4:22 left. The Bruins, trailing 77-75 with two seconds left, had a chance to send the game into overtime when UCLA's 7- foot freshman center Stuart Gray went up for a short bank shot and a whistle was blown. But an official called a "held ball" which under new rules awarded the ball to BVU. The new rule calls for teams to alternate inboundlng the ball rather than having a jump ball. Other top scorers for BYU were Steve Trumbo with 22 and center Greg Kite with 12. UCLA was led by forward Mike Sanders with 22, Rod Foster with 12 and Kenny Fields with 11. At Ancourage, Alaska, senior guard Alford Turner scored 23 points to lead a young Southwestern Louisiana team to a 70-61 upset of No. 5 Georgetown in the opening round of the Great Alaska Shootout. Southwestern Louisiana capitalized on sloppy play by the heavily-favored Hoyas in the season opener for both teams. The Ragin' Cajuns scored the last seven points of the first half, including a three-point play by forward Tommy Robinson that opened a 35-25 lead at intermission. Perhaps knowing what might be in store for his team, Virginia coach Ter- Denver trips KC,123-115 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI) - Kansas City's young Kings paid dearly for a basic mistake. "Our mistake was we let Alex English get started and when he gets started, no one can stop him," said Kansas City Coach Cotton Fitzsimmons Friday night in the wake of a 123-115 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Limiting English to 12 points, the Kings went on the biggest first half scoring spree in Kemper Arena history by building a 74-55 half time lead. But English hit a blistering 10-of-ll second half shots en route to a game high 34 points. "He's amazing," said Denver Coach Doug Moe, "but I get the tendency to expect that of him." A basket and two free throws by Kiki VanderWeghe with 3:56 left in the game gave Denver its first lead of the second half. After the Kings tied the game on a layup by Ernie Grunfeld, Dan Issel scored five straight points to wrap up Denver's fourth straight win. "I've lost some tough games but never like this in Kansas City," said Fitzsimmons. "We're going to have to make some changes. We can't outscore people. We just don't know what winning is all about yet." Cliff Robinson had 24 points, Phil Ford 21 and rookie Steve Johnson 15 for the Kings. The Kings lost its fourth in a row and fell to 3-10.

Shockers rip ACU, 93-55 WICHITA, Kan. (UPI) - Veteran Antoine Carr came up with a team- high 16 points and four teammates hit double-figures to help Wichita State, the nation's No. 7 ranked basketball team, roll to a 93-55 win over Abilene Christian in its regular season opener. • Abilene Christian, a Division II school, outclassed from start to finish, falls to 1-1 for the season. The visiting Wildcats did, however, give the Shockers a dose of things that are likely to come this season by using a slow-down offense. The Shockers forged a 46-27 lead at the half behind Carr, who scored 11 of his points before the retiring to the lockerroom. Carr hit 7-of-ll field goals and also had a team high 10 rebounds. The Shockers' starting front line averaged 6-7 while Abilene Christian's tallest starter measured 6-6.

And heed his warning they did. "We wanted to put some pressure on them to begin with and play the game at our tempo," said Holland after Virginia ran off to a 13-0 lead en route to a 107-66 victory in the second game of the Cavalier Invitational Tournament. "I think we did a good Job of doing just that." Virginia piled up its highest point total in five years and passed the century mark for the fifth time in eight seasons under Holland. Veteran Craig Robinson and freshman Tim Mullen scored 16 points each for the Cavs. Ralph Sampson played only 21 minutes and scored 13.
