HAYS DAILY NEWS PACK H December 13, 1976 Irish Pleased With (*•»**) Indians To Face League Victory Over UCLA College Basketball Roundup By OllEG AIEIXO UP I Sports Writer There haven't been many basketball teams which have left Pauley Pavilion in a cheerful mood. That's because UCLA seldom loses there. So Notre Dame had good reason Saturday for being thrilled. "There is no thrill to describe this one," Notre Dame Coach Digger Phelps said following his team's 66-63 upset of ^third-ranked UCLA. "Somebody up there must love me. I'm sure no saint." The defeat was only UCLA's fourth in Pauley Pavilion's 12- year history and Notre Dame's first triumph there in 10 tries. The Bruins, who suffered their first loss in four games, have run up a record of 171-4 at Pauley. Notre Dame's freshman guard Rich Branning scored on a layup with 25 seconds left and added two free throws at the buzzer to give the llth- ranked Irish their fifth victory without a loss. "We scouted UCLA against San Diego State and knew they were ripe for an upset," Phelps said. "We had to stay close in the first half, which we did, and then we kept to our game plan. We used five of the 11 defenses we have and changed three times in the last six minutes." UCLA led 63-62 with 2:30 left and then went into a stall. Notre Dame forward Dave Batton fouled David Greenwood at 1:02, but Greenwood missed the first shot in a one- and-one situation and Notre Dame grabbed the rebound and called time out. Branning then scored his layup over UCLA guard Brad Holland to put the Irish ahead for good. Holland missed two short jumpers in the final 12 seconds before fouling Branning. "Beating UCLA at Pauley Pavilion is where it's at in college basketball," Phelps said. "We are playing better together as a team than at any time in recent years." In other Saturday games involving top 20 teams, No. 2 Marquette beat Penn State 7949, No. 4 Nevada-Las Vegas edged San Diego State 118-113, No. 5 Kentucky routed Kansas 90-63, No. 7 Arizona beat Pacific 78-60, No. 8 San Francisco downed Utah 91-81, No. 9 North Carolina defeated Virginia Tech 81-77 and No. 10 Cincinnati crushed St. Joseph's (Ind.) 122-78.

The Hays High Indians travel to Great Bend for a Central Kansas League encounter with the Great Bend Black Panthers, while the Thomas More Prep will be in the Cowboy Capital for a non- league affair with the Dodge City Red Demons. It appears the Monarchs may have the rough time, since the Red Demons easily took care of the Black Panthers last Friday by a score of 85-57. Also last Friday the Indians got rolling in the fourth period, and with a 34 point outburst, wallopped McPherson, 74-53. The Monarchs, meanwhile, stopped a Pratt rally in time to claim a narrow 43-42 win over the Greenbacks. The McPherson win was the Indians' second this season, and for the Monarchs it was their second in three outings as they lost earlier in the week to the Indians. Four of Hays High's starters have been in the double double figures in both games. On top is center Dave Hays with 37 points. The 6-4 senior has a shooting percentage of 67 per cent. Senior forward Bill Giles is next with 34 points, followed by Randy Brehm with 31, and Kurt Maska with 25. The fifth starter, Bob Wiesner has tallied 12. With what should be the Indians' biggest weapon this' season, they have outrebound their two opponents, 79-51. Looking outstanding on the boards for the local Tribe has been Brehm, who has a two game total of 31. Next is Hays with 20, followed by Giles with 14, Wiesner 12 and Maska four. Curt. Stremel and Terry Kisner has been handling most of the Monarchs scoring as the pair has scored 104 of the 170 points. Stremel heads the list with 53 points, while close behind is Kisner with 51. The only other Monarch to break into the double figure scoring in the three games was Terry Karlin who had 10 against Pratt. Getting the Monarchs in hot water in all three of their games has been their fouling. In the three games, they are averaging 23 personals per contest, and had six foul out. ' Kisner has drawn five twice, and without him, as was the case at Pratt, things can get mighty hectic. He is by far their best rebounder. At Dodge City, the ' Monarchs will find themselves with a big height advantage, as the Red Demons are not blessed with good size, but they don't make too many mistakes, and they have plenty of quickness to go along with good shooting. Against Great Bend last Friday, which was their third straight win by 26 points or better, the Red Demons hit 58 per cent of their shots. The Red Demons put the game away in the second quarter when they poured in 34 points and took a halfflme lead of 47-30. Payne led the scoring with 21, while 6-1 Jeff Racette had 17, 5-10 Chad Kincaid, I2,,and 6-1 Dave Weiser, 11. It is the first time since 1969 that the Red Demons have won their first three games. The loss to Dodge City' for the Great Bend Black ^Panthers even their season record to 1-1, as they opened'' the season with a 51-43 win 'over the Lamed Indians. The Cats are being led iri the score column by senior'Joe Kretine. In topping the scoring In both games, Kretine has tallied 32 points. The No. 2 scorer for coach Don Duncan's Cats is Bob.'Holt with 21. He and Kretine Were the only two to get into the twin digits against Dodge City. ••.. Both local teams will have one more game before ~. the Christmas break. On Friday, TMP will be at home against Lyons, while Hays High travels to Manhattan. Marian Girls Namath To Spend Winter r* « i •• « I Considering Grid Future Get Victory PRATT — Marian High broke into the win column last Friday by defeating Pratt in a girls basketball game, 33-16. Marian, now 1-2, was led in the scoring by Renee Schmidt, who dropped in 10 points. Seven others got into the scoring act for the winners. They were Janet Haselhorst with eight, Sandy Kisner, six; Joe Pfannenstiel, three; Denise Dreher and Laura Schmidt, two each; and Joyce Lang and Bev Zeigler, one each.

NEW YORK (UPI) — Joe Namath will lounge in the warm Florida sunshine Monday and begin considering his future in pro football. Namath finished the worst season in his 12-year pro career Sunday when he completed only 4-of-15 passes for 20 yards and was intercepted four times in a 42-3 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Namath, who has been coming off the bench in recent weeks, started for the first time in a month but left the game in favor of rookie Richard Todd at halftime with-the Bengals leading 27-3. More than 23,000 ticket holders elected not to watch Namath's possible finale in New York and many of the crowd of 31,067 were gone in the second half. "If it was my last game here," Namath said, "then I'm sorry it had to end the way it did. The people in the stands deserve a better show than we've been giving them. I wish I could be around when we get better." Namath said his immediate future plans are not in his hands. "It makes no difference what I want to do unless I decide I don't want to play," he explained. "If I do decide to play again, it's not up to me whether I play here or not. I have a contract for next year and it's up to the Jets if they want to keep me or not. I can't, say what's going to happen next year. I don't have a crystal ball, I have no control over my future in football." Namath has come under heavy criticism in the local media this season. .Many blame him for the Jets''3-11 finish and first-year coach Lou Holtz' decision last Thursday to quit and return to college coaching at the University of Arkansas. "I've taken a lot of heat this year," Namath said, "but I don't know of a passing game • that can be decent with the quarterback getting knocked on his butt 80 per cent of the time. It's happened to me this season and people say it's because I can't move. But Richard Todd can move and he's gone do.wn eight out rff 10 times, too. Your mind and your body are just not going to work right when you're getting pounded so much. "I get tired of people saying Joe Namath is immobile. I'm just as immobile now as I was in 1968 and 1969 and we were winners then. I've crossed the line of scrimmage just as many times this season! as I did in '68 and '69. The only difference is that then we,were winning. One guy wrote that we won that year because I stayed out of the way in"l968. 'How ridiculous can you 'get? "I can still play football. I look at films day after day, week in and week out, and I know I can still play. I' feel good throwing —'there's hot a pass in the book I can't throw. My arm is good no matter what people say and my legs are okay. I've had problems with my knees just once' this year. But what can people expect when you get knocked down eight out of 10 times? What the hell do you do?" In the past Namath' has campaigned openly for a trade to Los Angeles. He's hoping for a career in the mov(e industry and would like to finish with a contender rather tfian a rebuilding club. "There are different ways of rebuilding," he explained. "Some people start at the bottom with the players. Some start at the top with management. Obviously, we've : gone about it the wrong way. I don't know what management is doing to rebuild, what options they have. •• Powerful Norton Captures Osborne Wrestling Match Hays Merchants Basketball Results Sunday Night KofC67 Brass Kail 57 K of C' — K.
