Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier Newg - Tuesday, December U, 1MT - Page Mini ' Wolfpack Can Remember When RALEIGH - North Carolina State will be after two firsts when it meets Georgia in the Liberty Bowl Memphis. on Saturday in Gerald Warren Tigers Do Have The 'Right Guard' By ED SCHUYLER JR. Associated Press Sports Writer Bill van Breda Kolft no longer coaches basketball at Princeton but he didn't leave the Tigers defenseless. "It was our second best defensive game of the season," Coach Pete Carril said Monday night after the lOtb-ranked Tigers ran their record to 4-0 by .thrashing Rutgers 83-54. You might have difficulty convincing Rutgers it was only Princeton's second-best defensive effort. Trailing 40-29 at halftime, the Scarlet was held to one the fjrst 7% minutes of the second half by Princeton's swarming man-to-man defense, taught by Van Breda Kolff, while Tiger shooters poured in 18 for insurmountable 58-30 lead. Carril, who took over the Princeton helm after Van Breda Kolff resigned to coach the professional Los Angeles Lak ers had no trouble following Van Breda • Kolff's defensive philosophy. He was captain of the first college team coached by Van Breda Kolff, at Lafayette in the early 1950s. * * • * Christ Thomforde led the balanced Princeton attack against Rutgers at Princeton, N.J., with 15 points, including 13 of 14 from the foul line. The only other member of the Top Ten to see action Monday, No. 9 Indiana, also won. The Hoosiers, trailing 42-41 at halftime, came on in the final 14 minutes and edged Kansas State 88-93 at Bloomington, . Ind., boosting their record to 4-9. Earl Schneider scored 26 points for Indiana. Unbeaten Marquette, with George Thompson scoring 22 points and Brad Luchini 16, ran up a nine-point lead in the first three minutes and coasted to its third victory, • 87-61 over Air Force at Milwaukee, Wis. Cool leer Turns Hot NEW YORK (AP) - Three weeks ago, slender Stan Mikita, Chicago's three-time National Hockey League scoring champion, was 49th in the scoring race with seven toals and 10 points in 15 games. Today, Mikita is fifth with 29 points, only seven behind teammate Bobby Hull. Buoyed by the return to action by linemate Doug Mohns, Mikita has fired seven goals and 11 assists in the last eight games to climb back into the race. : Hull, with 24 goals and 12 assists for 36 points, regained the scoring lead from Boston's Johnny Bucyk, who had a 13- game point producing streak snapped Sunday night. . Bucyk has 18 goals and 17 assists for 35 points and teammates Fred Stanfield and John McKenzie stand third and fourth. Stanfield had 33 points and McKenzie 31. Toronto's goallending team of Johnny Bower and Bruce Gamble took the netmindlng lead with a 2.15 goals against average, a shade better than Philadelphia's Doug Favell and Bernit Parent, who are averaging 2.24. .... St. Bonaventure, 4-0, routed Xavier of Ohio 93-69 at Olean, N.Y., as Bill Butler scored 33 points and 6-foot-ll sophomore Bob Lanier added 30. All five starters hit for double figures for Detroit in a 86-81 victory over West Virginia at Detroit. Bruce Dowdan led the Titans with 20 points, and Dave Reaser got 29 for West Virginia. Notre Dame won its fourth game in as many starts, 79-59 over winless Southern Methodist, 0-5, at South Bend, Ind. Bob Arnzen netted 20 points and Bob Whitmore got 19 points and grabbed 20 rebounds for the Fighting Irish. And Queens College beat City College of New York 82-75 for its first victory over the Beavers in 30 years. Less Brody of Queens, who finished with 19 points, hit on all seven of his shots from the floor in the second half to spark the victory. In other big games, Wichita State outlasted Arizona State 122-15, Cincinnati . drubbed South Dakota 89-65, Purdue topped Ohio University 78-6 and Chicago Loyola trounced St. John's Minn., 119-85. All were home-court victories. The Wolfpack seeking Us first win over the Bulldogs In a .five-game series that goes back to 1933, and the Pack goes for its,first bowl victory after losing in two previous attempts. Both will' be difficult assignments against the tough Bulldogs of Coach Vince Dooley in the nationally televised (ABC) game which kicks off the bowl season. : State's best success against the Bulldogs was in the last meeting of the teams in 1962 when Georgia rallied to tie the Wolfpack 10-10, after State had built up a 10-0 halftime advantage. Otherwise, State has literally drawn a blank against Georgia, being shutout in three of the other four games. The Wolfpack also scored 10 points in the first game of the series, but lost 20-10. The two teams met in 1952 in a hastily arranged game, with the Wolfpack subbing for its local rival North Carolina, which had to cancel the game due to a polio epidemic on the Chapel Hill campus. The Pack was also hit by an epidemic of Geor- The Wolfpack has played in the Gator Bowl and. Liberty Bowl for its only football postseason appearances. Both times the Wolfpack took 8-2 records, the same as the current 1967 team compiled, into its bowl game. But Oklahoma whipped the Wolfpack in 1946, 34-13, at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, while Stale's rally in the 1963 Liberty Bowl fell short of Mississippi State, 16-12. The Wolfpack-Mississippi State game was the last played in frigid Philadelphia before the Liberty Bowl was moved indoors to Convention Hall in Atlantic City and then settled in hospitable Memphis. State and Georgia both haye been strong defensive teams this year and stressing running in their offensive plans. Each has a standout field goal kicker, with State's .Gerald Warren leading the nation in scoring by kicking with 70 points and establishing the NCAA mark of 17 field goals in one season. Georgia's Jim McCullough scored 52 points with his toe to lead the Bulldogs in scoring. Another parallel is that each team has an all-Amrica tackle on its roster, with the Bulldogs' Edgar Chandler on offense and gia points, • with the Bulldogs | Dennis Byrd of State on defense, toying with State, 49-0.

'I no longer want the job." Gibson made it a pretty good job in his three years at the lielm of the Falcons. He had a 19-9 record after being an assistant for nine years.
