Second Quarter Clinches Win Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tue*., Feb. 27, 1973 i Fo Jonesboro Whips Dogs LITTLE ROCK -- The Joncs- boro Hurricane lived up to its reputation as a great state tournament team here last night, defeating the Fayettcvillc Bulldogs 70-44 in the first round of the state AAA tournament. Jonesboro advanced to 24-5 for the season, while Fayetteville ended the year with an 11-19 mark. The Hurricane next plays tomorrow night at 7:00 against Forrest City, which downed Springdale 55-40 last night. Despite last night's lop-sided score, the leading scorer was Charlie West of Fayetteville with 15 points. However, ' no other Bulldog scored more than six points, while four Hurricane starters hit for double figures: Mark Million, 13; Billy Clark and Preston Miller, 12 each; and Larry Andrews, 10. The Bulldogs outscored Jones- oro tram the tree throw line, 18 of 31 to 12 of 21, but could net only 13 field goals while he Hurricane sank 29. West scored six of Fayetteville's tield joals, and none of his teammates made more than two. After Jonesboro jumped to a 17-10 first-quarter lead, the Bulldogs were never in the game. The Hurricane outscored Fayetteville by only 13-12 in the third period and 17-16 in the fourth, but by then had already put the game away by taking a 23-6 edge in the second quarter for an overwhelming 4016 halftime lead. Miller scorec all 12 of his points in the first nine minutes of the game, and then Million took over with seven points in the second quarter. The Hurricane led all the wa^ n the game, starting with Iwo ield goals by Robert Spcers and one by Miller for a .6-0 lead.

The only suspense in the final two periods was whelher Jonesboro would double Fayelleville, as the Hurricane led by scores of -14-22, 46-23. 51-25, and 53-26, before the Bulldog reserves matched up evenly with the Jonesboro bench.- There were 48 fouls called in Ihe game, 25 against Jonesboro and 23 against Fayetteville. No one fouled out, but four players on each team finished Ihe game with four fouls: Million, Speers Andrews, and Clark of Jones- oi\ Tony Childress, Al|yn Donaubaucr, Lynn WaMren. and West of Fayettevillej - '· Just as Fayetleville was hurl i) · the slale 4purnamenl last year by an injury lo Bob Noland, Ihe Bulldogs h a d lo play without their third-leading scorer this ycSar, Neil Bvulon. who · 'was 'injured before ' lusl night's game.

Tonight at 7:30 the Hogs host SWC leader Texas Tech. ' - , . ' · · ' . ' · The Hogs still'have a shot at the SWC .title if they can dispose of Tech tonight and if the Raiders fall to Baylor Saturday afternoon in Lubbock. That's certainly a lot of ifs for Arkansas coach Lanny Van Eman and his charges, yet it's the first time in several years that the Razorbacks have been "in the race" this late in the season. Arkansas stayed in the race last Saturday by downing a physically tough SMU squad. Tech obliged by losing to Texas AM. Martin Terry's 47-point performance earned the respect of fans and the awe of television commentators in Saturday's game. With this much at stake you can expect more of the same tonight. Defensive standout Doug Campbell could be another to watch. Campbell added 24 big points to his usually outstanding game while fellow forward Dennis White entered in the second half to rescue some crucial rebounds. Dean Tolson will be available to block shots, grab rebounds and score plenty of points. In short tonight's contest stacks up as the single most important and exciting game in quite a few seasons.

Blytheville Kentucky was in the midst of a 111-95 Southeastern Conference college basketball victory over Alabama Monday night when the public address man decided to report Tennessee's 78-74 upset loss Against Louisiana State. Immediately, the partisan Kentucky crowd started .shouting, "We're No. 1," and although the chant was premature, it could give Tennessee some food for thought. The Vols' loss and Kentucky's victory shaved Tennessee's SEC lead to a meager one-half game over the Wildcats. The two teams clash head-on March in the game that likely will d e t e r m i n e t h e conference champion. Meanwhile, third-ranked Minnesota moved a one-half game ahead of idle Indiana in the Big Ten race with a 90-74 victory over Northwestern, Kansas State clinched a tie for the Big Eight crown by beating Oklahoma State 91-67 and Austin Peay missed a chance to clinch the Ohio Valley Conference title by bowing to Middle Tennessee. The shocker, of the night though, was LSU's upset ol Tennessee. Mike Darnell hi five foul shots in the final 4( seconds to clinch the victory Eddie Palubinskas, who led a! scorers with 25 points, also hit a pair of free throws in the final spurt. The loss left Tennessee at 12 in the SEC wilh three games, all on the road, remaining. Coach Ray Meal's viewed the situation calmly. "I don;t think one game is going to throw us out of Ihe race," said Mears. "It would have been a lot easier if we liad won."
