'' C-2-lNDtfENt)tNT (AM) JJESS-TEIEGRAM _(PM) UM »«ch. c«iii.. TW.. j.n. i\. mi' BUD TUCKER Pac-8 cage race baffles Bruins, rojans following %st weekend' Open the doors, John Wooden If you have concluded this is a day and age wherein all the news is bad, observe the basketball writers of this earth who are'dancing on the boulevards and alternately weeping and giggling hysterically. The benefactor in the case is the NCAA. This ·august body has announced that the locker room doors wiH f ,be open during its national championship tourna- mcrU ir .lhereby making the lives of hoop journalists worth/Jiving once again. YOU SEE, THERE WERE those coaches who saw fit to|create bastions of the dressing quarters at ihe conclusion of games. Not the least of these was John Wooden of UCLA who is almost obsessed with secluding .his clods from those engaged in the relentless pursuit of quotes. Henceforth, however, the Bruins will be vulnerable to the visits of reporters when UCLA is taking part in the NCAA tournament. It should be pointed out that this ruling has nothing to do with the regular season at UCLA. In .other words, there is no indication the guards will be/disarmed or the fortifications removed at Pauley Pavilion. Security forces from around the globe could study and learn from Pauley Pavlion. To say the place is air- light would be a colossal understatement. Recently, a guy claiming to be wired with explosives got to the front lawn of the White House. Wooden's security people would have placed the arm on this creep before he turned off the freeway at Westwood. : ^HE HOUSE DETECTIVES hall of fame has enshrined such immortals as Tiptoes Tananbaum, Key- holeJCohen and Clothes Closet Clooney. Plaques await the JPaiiley Pavilion people, of course, but at the moiiient security is so thorough nobody knows their nanies. The UCLA security forces first gained international rendwn with their work with the Bruins' most recent superstars. Lew Alcindor and Bill Walton. Alcindor was to become Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Walton is now known to his teammates on the Portland professional team as Skunkie. At any rate, no tormenting reporter was to pounce upon either of these super centers while at UCLA. At the conclusion of a Brain game, the guy would remove his sneakers and colored underwear and vanish into Iho night, not to reappear until the referee threw up the ball*to start the next contest. fx'atually, attempts were made to infiltrate. Basket- hall^ writers in various disguises sought to outwit the security people but none was successful. iThe greatest frustration came in 1969 when a group of journalists tunneled under the walls. They were only a few feet short of the home team locker room at Pau~% Pavilion when Alcindor graduated. ^Coach Wooden's theory behind all this is his own and'he is entitled to it. Certainly, one does not dispute its success at the time. ' While the security squad was rising to its glorous heights of achievement, the baskctbal team won three national championships with Alcindor and two with Walton. AS TO WHETHER THE sheltering of the two youths properly prepared them for life after college depends entirely on your point of view. -Alcindor, now Jabbar, has not yet learned to live with reporters but he is no longer startled by their appearance in the locker room of the Milwaukee Bucks and the local press is mildly encouraged. Whereas Jabbar's response to a question a year ago was a blank look, jt is now a low grunt. :,.Walton has apparently made no progress. The gentlemen of the working press in Portland report th^re are two things Walton does not do. He doe not play and he does not talk. f Hope, however, has not been abondoned. In a television with a female sportscaster, Walton was looking at his feet but thought to be making human sounds. .' T.hen too, there is the encouragement of the NCAA ruling. Henceforth, if there is ever another Bruin worth an'interview during a national tournament, the media will not be impeded by a locker room door. So it is then, the basketball writers arc beside themselves with delight. Clearly, this is progress. Today the arenas of the world. Tomorrow Pauley Pavlion.

It's good to be home." It may be even better to return to his foster home in I'liKiiik'iiii one of Ihcse dayV By GARY RAUSCH Siaff Writer Bob Boyd and John Wooden were doing some soul searching Monday, taking their last looks at a lost weekend. B o y d ' s USC Trojans (67-66) and Wooden's UCLA Bruins (64-60) suffered defeats at Stanford that dropped them in a rare five-way tie for the Pacifie-8 Conference basketball lead. It was an agonizing loss for USC. which stood alone atop the standings for the f i r s t time in 1-1 years. The Trojans' reign lasted all of one day. "We're the loam that fell into the tie by losing," Boyd told Southland basketball writers. "All the others got there by winning." Boyd is t h a n k f u l his club (13-2) has a two-week layoff before tackling UCLA at Pauley Pavilion Saturday, Feb. 1. "We deserve the rest. It'll give us ample t i m e to put together the proper game to be successful against UCLA. Our problem righ! now is road games. "We play UCLA and then go to Ore : ,uon. That's five successive games on the road." Bolh coaches agreed that it's not likely one team will sprint to the front t h i s season w i t h a two or three-game lead on the rest of the Pac-8. "1 t h i n k it w i l l be a tight race 49ERS-- (Continued from C-l) of the players, particuilar- ly Bob Gross. Richard Johnson a n d Larry H u d son, w h o c a n a l l play three, four or five different positions for us. "They give us a flexibility t h a t can really be an asset in trying to a t t a c k another team." Jones is a l s o pleased with the development of point guard Dale Dillon, a .(-! sophomore from Long Beach. " D a l e h a s really matured a t . t h a t position." Jones said. "He's playing it w i t h confidence now, and is doing a good job of r u n n i n g our offense, and he's going to get better each game." T h e k e y t o L o n g Beach's success in league will be the play of 6-7 K y l e Jackson a n d 6 - S Carlos M i n a . "We're a m u c h belter t e a m w e ' r e hmning." J o n e s s a i d , "which i s s o m e t h i n g w e ' v e b e e n (luing well the last three games. But for us to be an e f f e c t i v e l a s t break team Carlos and Kyle have got to c o n t i n u e going to the boards bard and then get- l i n g the o u t l e t pass for us " throughout the conference," said Boyd. "It's possible one team or another may find itself two games down after going on the road. I never would have imagined Washington being 0-4 today, especially with two of those defeats coming at home." "1 concur with Bob," said Wooden. "I'm suprised as anyone that Washington and Washington State are both 0-4. I t h i n k they could have won both their games against Oregon and Oregon State last week and they weren't completely out of their games down here the week before." Oregon also has Wooden baffled. "It splits at home and sweeps on the road," he pointed out. Many Pac-8 coaches are of the opinion a team with four defeats could win the title. Wooden is in the minority. "Four losses could tie, but won't win. If we have four losses at the end of the season, I'll enjoy the NCAA playoffs lots more than I have in recent years," said Wooden with a grin. ;-. Wooden's prime concern is neither USC. UC Santa Barbara (Thursday's opponent) nor Notre Dame in South Bend Saturday. It's rebounding. "I feel we should be rebounding a lot better. Through the years, rebounding has been one of our strengths. Some years we were out-rebounded only six times the whole season. I can't ever remember being beaten on the boards' three successive games." Wooden denied his t e a m entered Friday's Stanford game with any complacency because of its 12-0 record. , "We haven't been shooting well and we've lost our drive,"- he explained. "Stanford's record is most misleading because of their injuries, illnesses and road games. "I'm not displeased that Rich Kelley and Ed Schweitzer played,exceptional games and scored 22 apiece and I'm not displeased t h a t ' Stanford scored 64 ppints. It's the 60 that we scored against them that displeases me. . "We shot less than 30 per cent the second half against Washington State and less than 30 the first half at Stanford. You won't win many games shooting like that. "I think we're as good as anyone else and I think anyone is as good as us. A loss can be beneficial, but so. can a win and I'd prefer the latter." Co-players of the week in the university division were Pepperdine center Marcos Leite and USC guard Gus Williams. Pomona-Pitzer's Geoff Northrop gained the college division honor. Oops!

KXI'OS Sigurd nihlhamifd p i l c h , 1* Slf\r I ' * £,i Hair Mulp'r) EDMONTON ( A P ) -Two of hockey's all-time superstars. Gordic Howe and Bobby Hull, will be West Division teammates in the World Hockey Association All-Star Game tonight. H o w e is one- of nine Houston players p i c k e d for the team and Hull, recently asked to double as player-coach of the Winnipeg Jets, was the lone unanimous choice for the game. Houston coach Bill Dineen will head the West All-Stars, seeking t h e i r first victory against their E a s t D i v i s i o n c o u n t e r parts. A capacity crowd of 15,32(5 will jam the new Edmonton Arena for the game. Dineen will have a fistful of his own players, headed by the legendary Howe, playing in his 24th All-Star game, and one of Gordie's sons, Mark. In addition to the Howes, Houston's defending WHA champions will be represented by the forward line of Frank Hughes, Larry Lund and Andre Hinse, defensemen Poul Popiel and John Schella, forward Ted Taylor and goalie Wayne Rutledge. M e a n w h i l e , D i n e e n added defenseman Doug Harrie of Edmonton as an injury replacement for Al Hamilton. Opposing the West Stars w i l l be an East squad coached by Ron Ryan 'of the N e w E n g l a n d Whalers. The East's forward line firepower will be led by Frank Mahovl i c h . Ralph Backstrom, and Serge Bernier, the latter two erstwhile mom- IKT.I nl the Kings. V MONTREAL ( A P ) -Fred Shero and Bep Guidolin, the coaches for tonight's National Hockey League All-Star G a n i e , expressed characteristic views of the game Monday. S h e r o , serious about every game and every practice, announced he would be accompanied behind the bench by Mike N y k o l u k -- w - h o assists Shero in his duties during the regular season at the helm of the Philadelphia Flyers. G u i d o l i n , meanwhile, kept his loose, easy-going attitude but agreed with Shore's philosophy. "I wish I had an assistant." Guidolin said with a grin. "If I did. he could be talking to the reporters and I could be in my hotel room, resting." Shero w i l l b r i n g his t e a m of Clarence Campbell Conference stars selected from teams in Divisions 1 and 2 into the Montreal Forum for the contest, w h i l e Guidolin will guide the favored Prince of W a l e s Conference players f r o m Divisions 3 and 4 in the 28th event. B o t h agreed in their expectations of the game. "You're not going to sec any hitting, but I don't think people want to see much." said Shero, who has on his roster five of his Flyers players. Bcrr.ic Parent will play goal behind center Bobby Clarke, left wing Bill Barber and (lofonsemon Ed Van Impc and Jim Watson. Meanwhile, the only All- Star from Guidolin's Kansas City club will play againsl his regular season roach. Shoro ricked riuht wing Simon Nolet from the roster of the Scouts, b u t b e c a u s e Guidolin earned his coaching spot behind the Boston Bruins' bench last season, he will look on as Nolet takes the ice for the opposition. "I hope he wins the car though," Guidolin glibly said of the prize given the g a m e ' s most valuable player. "He might give it to me." Three members of the Kings will perform for G u i d o l i n - goaltender Rogie Vachon and defen- semen Terry Harper and Bob Murdoch. i Crawford, Davis to appear in L.B. Willie Crawford of the Dodgers, Tommy Davis of the Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco's Derrel Thomas are scheduled to appear in Long Beach next Monday at a youth baseball clinic. The clinic will be held at Orange Field, 21st St. and Orange Ave. Youngsters are invited to attend and should bring gloves and shoes. Cage highlights Indiana 89, Wisconsin 69-Quinn Buckner scored 26 points, Kent Benson added 22 and Scott May contributed 17 for No. 1 Hoosiers, who won 20th game in row and are 6-0 in Big Ten.
