0-2-- INDEPENDENT (AM) * PRESS-TEIEGRAM (PM) ., PH., March i»,i»i Dodgers need 'one more bat'--Smith's V E R O BEACH-Wlth spring training under way at long last, Dodger vice president Al Campanis needed less than one day to return tn the more sensible matters of baseball--trading. "We need one m o r e bat," Campanis said Thursday as the · Dodgers planed to Florida aboard their four-engine jet, "and then lookout!" The bat, it appears, is in the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals' Reggie Smith. "We're still talking with a National League club," is all that Campanis would say, "but we'd sure love to have him." Asked flatly if it was the New York Mets, who h a v e dangled superstar Tom Seaver before the populace, Campanis replied, "I don't think they're going to do a thing with Seaver." But the Cardinals have expressed interest in a number of Dodgers, while Campanis has expressed interest in one Cardinal--namely, Smith. St. Louis, despite its winter trade with the Cubs for Don Kessinger, Is in need of a shortstop. The aging Kessinger will find the slick artificial turf of St. Louis' iiiiseh Stadium a trifle too fast for him. THUS, the Dodgers' BUI Russell is high on the Cardinals' list of candidates, whether C a m p a n i s admits it'or not. What he does admit IE that he'd love to have a Reggie Smith (.302 average, 19 homers, 76 RBI). He'd love to have Andy Messersmith, too, but the Dodger veep insists he's not fretting over the loss of 1975's 19-game winner via arbitration. "I look at the loss of Mcsser- By GORDON VERRELI, SlaK Writer smith this way," he said. "It's like the star of a Broadway play who gets sick and the understudy steps in and not only surprises but surpasses with his performance." Fine, but a lot of plays don't make Broadway and many that do go bust in one night. Still, Campanis is not one to panic. "Even without Messersmith, we still have a first-place caliber pitching s t a f f , " he maintains. "There's Don Sutton, Burt Hooton, Doug Rau and Rick Rhoden. "Messersmith is a helluva pitcher, no doubt, but don't forget, last year he was only five games over .600 (19-14)." THE DODGER vice president contends, too, that even with the late spring start -- normally, training starts March 1 -- the Dodgers will not be at a disadvantage. "It's not going to do a thing to us," he said. "All our players have been working out for the last two weeks. Bill Buckner has been hitting an hour a day and even throwing batting practice. Everyone's been running and is in pretty good shape. All we've got to do now is put it together as a team." DODGER DOPE: It Is rumored that Mikr Marshall, currently cmhroilwl In n silly feiirl willi Michigan Slate University officials, w i l l not report to I h c LVxIucrs until next month. A-slter] if Ihc D o d f j e r s , obviously emharrnsscd by Marshall's problems at MSU, would consider trading the one-timo Cy Voting Award winner, Campanis said, "You don't trade n nian of his caliber." . . .

VEGAS LOSES-- (Continued From C-l) "We were terrible in Ihc first half," said Tarka- nian, pointing out that the Rebels had trailed by 11 points with 5:38 remaining in the half. "I figured when we went off the floor down by only four (M-4T), we were going to win the game." The Rebels had been betrayed by their full-court . p.ress in the f i r s t 20 minutes as the Wildcats broke through repeatedly for easy baskets. '-.Nevada-Las Vegas scored the first six points Of the second half to go in front, 53-51, then inexplicably went into a tailspln as Arizona twice barreled to e i g h t - p o i n t advantages. ·But the Rebels' S m i t h 'boys, Robert and S a m , sent Nevada-Las Vegas 1 ahead, 71-69, with 11:42 regaining. ·1 But in a game in which . everybody was packing a : Saturday N i g h t Special YACHTS- (Continued From C-l) and the action o f t e n resembled playground activity, this was nothing. When the Rebels' slick forward, Eddie Owens, went to the bench with five fouls at 11:16, Arizona took off on a tear. Rappis and Harris led the Wildcats to an 84-77 lead before Nevada-Las Vegas could get untrackcd. The Rebels outscored the Wildcats, 10-2, to take an 87-86 lead, and the teams traded counterpunches until the clock ran down to three minutes. Aklcd hy 10 consecutive successful free throws by Robert Smith during a late spell, the Rebels lield a 101-98 advantage with 1:05 remaining. Arizona's Phil Taylor scored with 57 seconds to go and Nevada-Las Vegas' Jackie Robinson missed a onc-and-one free throw opportunity with 50 second remaining. But Tavlor NCAA CAGE-- (Continued From C-l) 7:IS remaining, bill Ihc Warriors went ahead for good on baskets by Butch Lee, Jerome Whitehead and Bo Ellis, then froze the ball over Uie final two minutes to clinch t h e i r 23rd consecutive victory.

Harris was fouled wilh M seconds remaining, converted Ihe first free throw to tie the score, but missed the second to give the Rebels a scoring opportunity. B u t Robert S m i t h , apparently unaware of the need for haste, stood beyond the top of the key for five seconds, then missed an off-balance 17-fooler as the buzzer sounded. In overtime, A r i z o n a shot to a five-point lead in the (irst two and one-half minutes, then used a zone to baffle the Rebels. Tarkanian didn't alibi. "Give all the credit to Arizona," he said. "They hung in there. We had our chances and didn't do it, They had their chances and m a d e the best of them." The Wildcats' Elliott, a bruising 6-8 cenler, evalu- i ated the shoot- r cm-up. "I t h o u g h t execution was the difference," he said. "There's a big difference between organized basketball and playground basketball. The difference is Ihe guys in Ihe striped shirts. "That's why we won. We executed better than Las Vegas." He also pointed menacingly to Saturday night, when the Wildcats face L'CLA for Ihe Western title and a berth in the NCAA round-of-four. "This is our opportunity," he said. "We come from an area where we don't get much press. Nobody k n o w s a n y t h i n g about us." They do now.

Four skippers had one victory and two defeats. They were Ken Young (Yacht [lacing Union of the Great Lakes) Graham Hall, Barney Flam (Long Ueach YC) and Hollerbach. The real hard-luck skipper of the first day was H u g h Treharne ( A u s t r a - lian Yachting Federation), who lost the first race to Flam by 5!) seconds, lost a man overboard in the second race with Delfour and finally was involved in a collision with Deaver in the third series. In the second series one of his crewmen was on Ihc forcdeck a n d f e l l overboard as the spinnaker was being raised for the downwind run. Treharne had lo drop the chute and turn around to pick up his man. It only took a couple of minutes, hut he lost the race by 5 minutes, 2 seconds.
