A t Inverrary, Forrest Fezler joined Tom Watson, Tom Kite, and Andy North as 23-year-old-or-younger golfers who have played prominent roles on t h e turf already this year. Fezler became the first golfer in recent memory to come back with t w o outstanding shots on the last hole after just blowing a four-day lead. Had he not missed that last four- footer, he might have had more rooters in the sudden- death playoff than the popular Trevino. Most of the golfers who have won or contended seriously this year have either been multi-winners or those who have won zero, one, or two tournaments. In the former category are Nicklaus, Palmer, Trevino, and Bruce Crampton, while in the latter Terry Sets School Mark UP AND OVER 'football, but apparently it's are Fezler, Watson, Rod Fun( * rm,- r, n ii nv nnu.hAtrB' spfh. .Tnhn Schlee.

Hogs Alone In Second Place Arkansas took over second place in the Southwest Conference and the Razorbacks' Martin Terry broke his own school scoring record with 47 points in a 103-96 victory over Southern Melhodist here Saturday. The Arkansas record had been set by Terry last year with 46 points against Texas AM. It was the fourth straight victory for the Razorbacks in SWC play and boosted Arkansas' conference record to 8-4 w i t h two games remaining. The last time the Razorbacks finished above .500 in conference play was in 1963 when they were D-6. The Mustangs dropped to 7-5 in the conference. 'They'll Be Excited In Arkonsos' Race Still Undecided By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS High-scoring Arkansas, led by hotshot guard Martin Terry, has a chance to throw some excitement Into the Southwest Conference basketball race Tuesday night. The Razorbacks, with a four- game victory streak and an 8-4 SWC record, have the only hope in the league to catch first- place Texas Tech, which is 10-2 with two games left. One of those two comes Tuesday night against Arkansas at Fayetteville, and if the Razorbacks can pull off a victory, look out! Next Saturday, Arkansas would still have to beat Rice at Houston and Tech would have to tall at home to Baylor before the race would end in a lie, but stranger things have happened. Rice has lost eight straight games and Baylor is one of the two league teams that has beaten the Red Raiders so far. Last week, Tech looked like a shoo-in for "the title, but last Saturday Texas AM pulled a 76-75 upset over the Raiders in jubbock, where over 9,000 fans tvere hoping they could pop their champagne bottles. The game was won on a goal-tenting call in favor of the Aggies' Mario Brown with just seconds left in the. game. Aggie Coach Shelby Metcalf said afterwards he believes Tech will still win it all, but was happy to put some excitement back into a ho-hum title chase. "They (Tech) killed our season down at our place before. They'll win it--we only delayed it. But this probably will get them stirred up in Arkansas," Metcalf said. Jeff Overhouse was the real hero for the Aggies, scoring 23 points and controlling i' boards for 20 rebounds. Terry, meanwhile, set an Arkansas scoring record with 47 points in a 103-96 victory over SMU, which has faltered from contending position to a 7-5 record and a third-place tie with AM and Baylor. The Mustangs' Sammy Hervey was matching Terry point- for-point in the second half before being ejected for a flagrant foul with 11 minutes to play and the score 75-73. Hervey, with 31 points, w a s gone and so were SMU's chances. "When they lost Hervey, they lost a big part of their offensive punch," said Razorback Coach Lanny Van Eman. "That w a s probably the big turning point." In other games Saturday Baylor beat cellar-dwelling TCU 80-73 in overtime ant Texas slashed Rice 75-68. The Bears' Charlie Ahart led all scorers with 30 points, in eluding six in overtime. Texas was led 6-9 center B.G Brosterhous with 19 points am 5-10 Harry Larrabee's 17 tal! ies. Rice shares last place with TCU, each with 2-10 records while Texas is 5-7. With Ihe Mustangs' Ira Terell and Sammy Hervey work- ng loose inside for several asy baskets, the score at the- naif was tied 57-57. SMU led as much as four points in the second half, but Terry tied the 'score at 73-73 and then put Arkansas in front or good w i t h 11:30 left on a ayup that made the score 7573. . Seconds later, Hervey, who" had scored 31 points, .was? ejected tor what the officials' said was a flagrant foul. Two ree throws by Jody Bass off Hevvey's foul expanded Aransas' advantage to . four points. Arkansas Coach Lanny Van Sman said that when SMU lost 3ervey, they lost a big part of ;hetr offensive punch. "T-h a t was probably the big turning point," he said. Doug Campbell aided the Ar- ..ansas attack with 24- points; including several crucial f r e e throws. · "Doug's confidence is run-, ning very high," Van Eman' said. I was impressed with two or thre corner shots that didn't even touch iron, just ripped the cords." According to Van Eman, Terry did not start the second half because he was feeling ill. Van Eman said, however, that after a few seconds elapsed Terry notified him that he was ready to play. Van Eman also pointed out that the Razorbacks held SMU to 39 points in the second half. 'They scored 55 in each, half against us at Dallas a n d 57 in the first half this afternoon, he said. , : · MOurney led all scorers with West Fork finished the season 21 .points, while teammates with a fine 2fi-2 record, while Kingston finished 17-4, with al four losses coming at the hands of West Fork.
