P«gt C.2-- INDEPENDENT L "" »«·*· «·'"· r. n, \m HANK HOLLINGWORTH EiKutiVt Spoilt Editor t^E«" a * !WM ' ! '«^^ Bill Mulligan Proven Winner USC is looking for a varsity basketball coach and I see no reason why Jess Hill has to look further than his own backyard to secure one. The man already is working for him: Bill Mulligan. · . It's my understanding that Jess, who used to work at .Long, Beach City College himself, wants a "name" p-succeed Forrest Twogood. Mulligan, obviously, dofesn't have that "name" yet, but .(as Doug Ives pointed out'in.a column a few days ago) neither did John McKay before Hill hired him to succeed Don Clark not too many years ago. McKay went.on to become football coach-of- the-year and also gamer enough laurels to establish himself as one .of the greater grid mentors in the U.S. ·}·'. So,',what's wrong with giving Mulligan a chance? The fiery : Trishman is'a'proven winner, from Chicago to Long Beach fo "USC, where he's now employed as frosh and asst..yarsity coach.' ; . . An out-of-town columnist wrote a few days ago that "a USC bigwig felt that .Mulligan's stalling against the ^UCLA frosh was a'fatal mistake that might have cost him his shot at the head USC job. The bigwig said it ^ruined USC's image by stalling." V Phooeyl How the heck is anybody going to beat the ^ -UCLA frosh team (considered by many as the BEST col- \Hege basketball unit in America today) unless something ·^different is tried? K£ * ' . ' * . * ' 1,. THIS IS THE QUESTION: Did USC want Mulligan's ;{l! lose without trying a different method? 'w .Had the Trojan frosh run with the UCLA frosh, they -f: would, have lost by 100 points. Hancock, one of the best J!:-junior college teams in the nation, lost to UCLA's fresh--. .--(email aggregation by 51 points the week previous. ·' ^ .. Mulligan felt that the Uclans never had faced a slow-down offense, and maybe they'd get rattled. (Nobody ! found the formula to rattle Lew Alcindor, but ^·Mulligan tried his own method.) '.'·: After eight, minutes of the game, USC led 2-0, the first time to my knowledge that UCLA's frosh were behind ALL SEASON! When you .hold-Alcindor and Company to, no-points in eight minutes, what's wrong with approach? . : ' ' -;··/;;,' THE RULES STATE'cIearly that the losing team must ~ ' ; pursue' the. action, 'which means going after the ball. "rUCLA; confused at the outset, didn't do that and was ^content to let USC make a ball-control error"-The rules Jgwere on Mulligan's USC side. '-"' As expected, the UCLA machine finally took over USC fell behind, 8-2. At that point Mulligan called the slow-down tactics because 1 he realized his chances of winning were diminished. . HE COULD HAVE STALLED THE ENTIRE GAME D HELD DOWN THE SCORE! But he didn't. Jess 'Hill take note: There' are two major things in :J5JMulligan's favor in his final contests against UCLA, which igyou know he'd never be able to beat. ;g ·- I. He stalled eight minutes last Friday and lost by ri.38 points. "J: . ' 2. He stalled five minutes on Saturday and'lost by 5.34 points. jfi- THESE WERE THE-LOWEST WINNING MARGINS ,'3?OF THE YEAR BY UCLA'S FRESHMEN, j. Isn't the Mulligan stall, under the circumstances, !£ better than having the great Trojan university attempt to f2 run with'UCLA and have a 200-point score on the hoards 55 for UCLA? The humiliation neyer would be forgotten. ·a ' ASIDE TO JESS:. It.tpok a lot of .'courage for what JS Mulligan did. He knew the fans would boo a stall arid the «« press (at least some factions) would not react favorably. -5 But he 'also realized his first obligation was to try and 5 win. Mulligan had his players thinking they could beat ;J the Bruin's tremendous organization of freshmen. '/5 Another point on Mulligan's coaching. He was with JJ his freshmen only part-time all-season because he was .£ helping Twogood coach .the varsity, and was travelling ^ with the varsity. '·5 When another man coached the frosh, the team '2 played poorly. When Mulligan was there (just on game ''·n nights), the USC frosh lost only three games--two to .*? UCLA and one to Long Beach City College's conference j£ champions. And Long Beach's "club, considered the mosi ;3 powerful JC team in the state, beat Mulligan's'outfit ·'£ only by a close 86-80 margin. ' · ·£ IN THE FIRST MEETING BETWEEN LONG BEACH .-5 CITY COLLEGE AND THE USC FROSH (WHEN MULLI ·3 GAN WAS ELSEWHERE), USC LOST BY 16 POINTS! ·J Also, when Mulligan was absent, even the Long .'£ Beach State frosh whipped the Trojan babies. ;.| FINAL NOTE to Jess Hill: If you don't name Mulligan '.-£ to the head coaching post, I'm afraid you're going to lose W him. The man has too much pride to be snubbed am V| probably would go backno high school coaching, jj This will hurt your USC outfit immensely in re- /· cruitlng. Bill landed some great frosh talent, plus- Harvey ^J Dillon (from Compton), the soph varsity starter. " The men who know rate Mulligan one of the fines *-2 recruiters ever seen in this area. Bill has great rapport % with kids and he doesn't promise the moon. * Jess, old friend, get the contract ready today. Don' '·« delay. Mulligan will be your "name" sooner than you '·» think.

' During the first 27 games 'erranoski pitched only thre times for a total of 2% in nings. On June 1, after 4 games, he had 10 appearance and 12% innings. Perranosk was ready to call the stat unemployment office. He did call manager Walte Alston from the bullpen on night to "ask him for permis sion just to warm up." ' . . 4 * * * ALSTON, the coaches an writers were under the fals impression t h a t Perranosl still was bothered by adhi siohs in his shoulder that se back his spring training tw weeks. "I threw all during the wi: ter (1964) until two weeks b fore " spring .training begar Then, I was quite busy an had to lay off. The adhesion built up and it took a Ion time to break them. "By opening day, I felt ·eat. I was ready to go, but! didn't get to pitch. There as one stretch when I dion t et a call for 18 days. Alston nally called me to his office nd we had a talk. '.'I could have said a lot of .lings, but I didn't. I just told Valter that my arm felt fine ind I was ready to go. After .at, I got a little more work, ut not enough. .' "A few writers kept asking ie about my arm until I got ed up.
