HAYS DAILY NEWS PA(}K 7 December 14, 1978 Pacific 8 Will Grow To % Pac-10' In Near Future SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) It'll soon be the Pacific-10. The already prestigious Pacific-8 Conference Monday formally extended membership invitations to Arizona State and Arizona of the Western Athlejic Conference. Following announcement of the Pac-8 decision, ASU President Dr. John Schwada and his University of Arizona counterpart, Dr. John P. Schaefer, were contacted in Arizona where they expressed delight. Schwada repeatedly emphasized the invitation must still be formally accepted by the state Board of Regents, who meet Friday. ASU and Arizona also face the threat of a WAC instituted suit that would require them to fulfill footbaH commitments drawn up through the 1980s. "Naturally, we are very pleased," said Schwada. "We feel we will be a valuable addition to that conference, and we will give the invitation full consideration." "This concludes a long Kentucky Blasts North Carolina By 31 Points '. College Basketball Koundup By (IKEO AIKLLO : UPI Sports Writer , The heart of Kentucky's basketball team has been „ playing together for s three years. South Carolina's young team found out Monday night how good the Wildcats have become. Third-ranked Kentucky routed South Carolina 98-67, the worst beating the Gamecocks ever suffered at Carolina Coliseum since it ' opened in the 1968-69 season. • South Carolina's worst defeat • at home before Monday night was a seven-point loss to Notre Dame last year. "These kids are now juniors," said Kentucky Coach Joe Hall. "They have matured in front of our eyes. They are more and more coming to dominate good teams." In winning its fifth game without a loss and 14th straight since last season, Kentucky jumped to a 10-0 lead and a 52-34 halftime margin. South Carolina, which returned only two experienced players from last year's 18-9 team, didn't score until Jackie Gilloon hit two free throws )!:13 into the game. The Gamecocks did not score from 'the field until 4:38 had elap- ' sed, when Golie Augustus ' scored to make the score 14-4. "We shot 67 per cent in the first half and played good • defense, too," Hall said. "There aren't a lot of teams that can keep up with that." Junior Jack Givens led I Kentucky with 28 points, •,followed by junior Mike • Phillips with 23. Senior Larry ! Johnson added 16 points and freshman Jay Shidler had 10. •> Gilloon scored 17 points and freshman center Jim Graziano 16 for South Carolina, now 1-3. In other action, Bob Elmore's 22 points helped Wichita State hand Long Beach State its first defeat in six games, 83-78; Illinois edged Cleveland State 72-70 to gain its fifth victory in six games; Carl McPipe scored 25> points to lead Nebraska to an 88-53 triumph over Northwest Missouri State; Matt Hicks had 26 points to spark Northern Illinois to an 81-57 victory over Wisconsin: freshman Dean Uthoff scored 22 points and grabbed 19 rebounds to power Iowa State to a v 78-70 win over California, and Ron Jones scored nine points in the final five minutes to help Texas-El Paso hold off New Mexico Stale 82-69. Notre Dame Climbs Up NEW YORK (UPI) — Unbeaten Notre JDame, which already claims road victories over Maryland and UCLA, has vaulted from nth to fourth in the latest college basketball ratings by the United Press International Board of Coaches. The Fighting Irish, who knocked UCLA from the unbeaten ranks 66-63 Saturday at Pauley Pavilion, jumped from 86 points to 262 — including one first place mention — from the 42-member coaches' panel. Notre Dame, which plays Indiana Tuesday night, is now 5-0. Michigan remained the top- ranked team in the nation with 21 first place votes and 388 points, while Marquette, which drew 16 first place nods and 367 points was again No. 2. Kentucky, fifth last week, replaced UCLA as the No. 3 team. . . .- > .,-...With last week's No. 4 team, Nevada-Las Vegas/also meeting defeat, there were other teams with Notre Dame making advances in the top 10. San Francisco, 7-0, moved up from eighth to fifth after wins over Houston, Tennessee and Utah, and North Carolina, 4-1, climbed from ninth to sixth with triumphs over Michigan State and Virginia Tech. Alabama; seventh, and Arizona, eighth, both dropped a notch in the wake of the Notre Dame, San Francisco and North Carolina advances.

The Pac-8 decision was cast with an eye toward improving athletic budgets ariti despite the apparent reluctarfce of the conference members in the Pacific Northwest. UCLA Chancellor Charles Young, speaking for the Pac-8 President's Council, said the invitation is valid until May 1, 1977, when the Pac-8 council holds its next meeting. In soothing the feelings of the four Northwest universities — Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State — Young added, "It is the conviction of all members of the conference that this is not a move in any way to realign, but to add two new members." A spokesman for Washington said prior to the four-day conference meeting saying he was opposed to expanding because he felt the four Northwest universities, the weakest link in the' conference, would be cast aside. Under the guidelines approved by the presidents, a minimum of seven conference games must be played to qualify for the conference football championship with ASU and Arizona becoming eligible for the Rose Bowl in 1978. Eventually, the conference hopes to work up an eight-game schedule. The admission requirement also stated that if the Arizona universities cannot comply with the required minimum seven-game football schedule until 1982, they will be allowed to enter conference competition in other sports. As an added incentive for conference members lukewarm to the Arizona admissions, the presidents' 'council said the 50-50 split of gross receipts in football will be retained. In basketball, an 18-game conference "schedule will be played on a double round- robin, home-'and-home basis. The baseball schedule calls for a 'divisional North-South alignment with the conference seeking automatic qualification for winners in the NCAA Tournament.

NEW YORK (UPI) - The Baltimore Colts won only two games in two years ... and then along came Bert Jones. Jones, the young quarterback who became a team leader early this season when he interceded with* management for the return of Coach Ted Mnrchibroda after he was fired, wont on to lead Baltimore to an 11-;! record and the Eastern Division title for the second straight year. On Monday, Jones and six other Colts were selected to •United Press International's U)7(i American Football Conference All-Slur team. Jones received 29 votes to easily outdistance Oakland's Ken Stabler. Stabler received just five votes as runncrup from Ihe42-man voting board, composed of three writers from each of I hi-14 AFC cities. Other members of the Colt offense selected wore running back Lydell Mitchell, the leading vote-getter with U2r wide receiver Roger Carr, tackle George Run/ and placekicker Toni Unhurt. Chosen from Baltimore's defense were end John Uulton and tackle Joe Ehrmann. Buffalo's O.J. Simpson, who had a sensational final month of the season to win the NFL rushing title for the fourth time in the last five years, nosed out Pittsburgh's Franco Harris by a vote for the other running back slot. Oakland, the Western Division champion, and Pittsburgh, which won nine consecutive games to overtake Cincinnati for the Central title, each placed four plqyers on the team. Named from Oakland were wide receiver Cliff Branch, tight end Dave (Jasper, tackle Art Shell and punter Ray Guy. The four Stcelers were all defensive players — outside linebacker Jack Ham, middle linebacker Jack Lambert, cornerback Mel Blotint and strong safety Mike Wagner.

Cincinnati veteran Coy Itiicon, who had a league-high 2(i quarterback sacks, was named al the other defensive end and Cleveland's Jerry Sherk joined Ehrmann at tackle. Victoria Girls Stop Kennedy Bennett Satisfied With FFG Decision TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) — Gov. Robert Bennett Monday said he is satisfied,/ with a decision by the Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission not to; shorten-the'current** quail and pheasant hunting ' seasons. In a letter to commission Chairman Lewis Moon, the governor said the commission misconstrued a letter he sent last week that mentioned a possible shortened season as part of the problem of deteriorating relations' between farmers and hunters. "The commission is in a better position to view this than I, but I really question the wisdom of going into the new year with this hunting season," Bennett wrote last week. Four commissioners meeting Thursday expressed surprise at the first letter, but after some hesitation, agreed on a statement that the season probably will not be closed early. "As I pointed out in my previous letter, the commission is in the best position to make the judgment concerning hunting season '••lengths," .'Bennett • wrote Monday. "I am advised that the commission has decided after review that no change' will be made in the season length. I certainly respect that judgment." Bennett said he is chiefly concerned with improving relations" between farmers and hunters and that his letter was misconstrued. "It was intended only as a suggestion for review and certainly not as a recommendation for changing the length of hunting seasons," he wrote. "It is unfortunate that the question of the length of the hunting seasons has overshadowed what I consider to be a rather crucial problem in Ihe relationship between Kansas farmers and hunters." The Kennedy Irish lost a 3417 decision to Victoria in an eighth grade- .basketball played at the Kennedy gym last week. John Darkness and Jeff Ilcrtel led the scoring for the- Irish with four points apiece, while Curt Dinkel had three, and Dale Romme, Jeff Schmidt and Doug Drciling had two each. Joe Robbcn was high for Victoria. He was followed by Pal Dinkel with six, Mark Drciling five, Bill Rajewski four and Jim Rohlcder and • Mike Windholz two each. . The Kennedy girls did a little belter as they won, 18-15. Colleen Kocrner of Kennedy led all scorers with 12. The remaining six points for Kennedy came from Sandy Schmidt who had four and Carolyn Wcigel with two. For Victoria it was Kona Austin with six, (ieralyn I'l'cil'cr four.
