RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The week-long United States Olympic basketball trials ended Saturday with the selection of a 15-man squad including college basketball's Player of the Year, Scott May of Indiana. But the ID-man selection committee, which included head Coach Dean Smith of North Carolina, could not solve the team's biggest problem--the absence of a truly dominating center. The committee selected three pivotmen--North Carolina teammates Mitch Kupchak and Tom LaGarde and Scott Lloyd o( Arizona State. All are 6- foot-10. "You and I know that, by international standards, this squad does not have the size you would like," said Smith. "But size is only a problem on shot blocking and defense--not offense." Actually, offensively, Smith's squad shouldn't have too many problems. Up front, there's the 6-7 May, who averaged 23.5 points a game for Indiana, 6-7 Kenny Carr of North Carolina State, AH-American Adrian Dantley, 6-5, of Notre Dame, 6-5 Walt Davis of North Carolina, 6-6 Ernie Grunfeld of Tennessee, Phil llub- bard, 6-7, of Michigan, 5-6 Steve Sheppard of Maryland and 6-8 Mark Landsberger of Arizona State. The guards are 6-3 Tate Armstrong of Duke, Otis Birdsong, 6-4, of Houston, Quinn Buckner, 6-3 of Indiana and Phil Ford, 6-2, of North Carolina. Every man on the roster except Buckner and Landsberger averaged better than 14 points per game last season. Buckner was the backcourt quarterback for Indiana and Landsberger, a transfer from Minnesota, sat out Arizona State's season. Passed up by the selection committee was a quartet of seven-footers--Tree Rollins of Clemson, Ralph Drollinger of UCLA, Glenn Sudliop of North Carolina State and James Edwards of the University of Washington. None of them had displayed the mobility and defensive quickness Smith wants to compensate for the wider lanes or. international basketball. ifc. *·«*,,,.· ,,.*v W^T^J*. *F ·*'-« "' ^f* r !

Stones, an Olympic bronze medalist with his sights on a gold in Montreal this summer, set the old mark of 7-6 in 1973 while competing for the Pacific Coast Club. The cocky Stones predicted he would set a world mark at the NCAAs because he felt he wouldn't reach it in the Olympic Games this summer at Montreal. Stones described the Olympics as a drag. His effort Saturday, anything but a drag, marked the ninth time he set a world record in the high jump and the 19th time he has gone ove.r 7-5. Stones said the high jump at the Olympic Games takes five hours and is nerve wracking. He predicted high jumpers at the Games will not be Aiter Friday loss able to keep their muscles loose for so long a period. The 22-year-old Stones was at Munich in 1972, finishing third and suffering from a lack of experience. But he went back to Munich in 1973 in a dual meet against West Germany and jumped 76 5 -'a, then a world record. The NCAA record was 7-4, set by Rey Brown of California Poly at San Luis Obisopo and Tom Woods of Oregon, both in 1973. The other prime prospect for setting a world record here was Arkansas Slate's Earl Bell, who last week set a pole vault world mark of 18 feet, 7W inches. Bell won his speciality Saturday but did not really approach his record, scaling the height 18-lVi, which was a meet record. The old mark was 18-1, set by Bell and Dan Ripley of San Jose State, last year at Provo, Utah. Long Beach State's Don Baird, was second at 17-7. Bell tried at 18-7 but failed. Meanwhile, Texas-El Paso's James Munyala ran away from the field in the final 150 yards to win the 3,000 meter steeplechase and Villanova's Eamonn Coghlan took the 1,500-meter run with a strong stretch kick, both runners setting meet records and defending their titles. Munyala, the durable Kenyan, kicked away from Brigham Young's Henry Marsh and Tennessee's Ron Add! son to win the steeplechase in 8:24.86. He broke the NCAA meet record of 8:28.1, set by Doug Brown of Tennessee in 1973. Marsh was timed in 8:27.8, also breaking the old record. Coghlan, who had won three straight NCAA titles ar.d nine IC4A crowns during his spectacular years at Villanova, burst into the lead at the top of the stretch and went on to edge Wilson Waigwa of Texas-El Paso by two yards in 3:37.1, the equivalent of a 3:54.6 mile. Suns seek equilizer PHOENIX (AP) - The clock is winding down, but the Phoenix Suns still are hoping to become a National Basketball Association Cinderella in a championship showdown with the Boston Celtics. The Suns, a wild card team in the playoffs and trailing Boston 3-2 in the best-of-seven championship series, have been battling the Celtics to a near standstill. "It's going to be another war just like this one was," Boston captain John Havlicek said as the two teams headed for Phoenix and Game 6 Sunday afternoon. Havlicek, a 14-year veteran seeking to lead the Celtics to an unprecedented 13th NBA title, shook off a painful foot injury and helped Boston to a dramatic 128-126 victory over the Suns in the fifth game Friday night in a tense triple-overtime game. Havlicek, who hit a running 15-foot bank shot which forced a third five- minute overtime, played 58 minutes. He appeared almost nonchalant, although naturally weary. He has been this way before, Havlicek, 36, but still the leader of the Celtics' famed fast break, scored 22 points, passed off for eight assists and grabbed nine rebounds while alternating between forward and the backcourt. "That's what playoff basketball is all about," Havlicek said after the longest championship round game in NBA'history. "1 think the situation that exists is going to create basketball interest in June which has never been seen before," tie added in an obvious reference to another NBA first, the latest playoff in history. However, the Suns, to a man, talked confidently, fully expecting a trip back to Boston for a seventh and deciding game next Wednesday would be necessary. "People thought we were just a bunch of people from the West that didn't belong here," Phoenix Coach John MacLeod said. "Anyone who thinks that now can go jump." Rcokie guard Ricky Sobers sounded the Suns' war hoop, declaring "we're not going to back down. "We're not going to give up, no matter what," Sobers said. "We proved that." The Suns certainly proved a lot to many basketball fans throughout the country. They rallied from a 2i-point f i r s t - h a l f deficit and forced Havlicek's l-for-2 from the free throw line to tie the game 95-95. Jo Jo White took charge for Boston in overtime, scoring 15 of his game- high 33 points. However, the Suns were all even 101-101 after the first five-minute session. Last week Outdoors With Doc took off into the wi!d blue yonder and prognosticated a bit upon the weather for the long hoi iday. The results were disaster. All of the screws came loose and the torrents poured onto land-based mortals with a vengeance which told this mere human writer something. Nevermore will there be a weather prediction upon these stately pages. As this is being written the clouds are dripping, a chill 36 degree wind blows, and snow is pelting the high country. Perhaps by Ihe weekend... The cooler weather can do nothing but slow down Ihe snow melt and prolong the time until stream flows are decreased and they become more fishable. 1 The Flathead River is thecolor of strong coffee diluted with a bit of cream. The water flow is gradually decreasing. It is likely the river will stay murky for quite a while. Huge ctearcuts up the North Fork have increased the nalual turbidity. Ihe soil dis- trubances at Cabin Creek, and crossing of streams constantly bv Rio Algom (or Sage Creek Coal) vehicles siir considerable sediment Another factor affecting sedimentation is the flood of last spring caving in banks and cutting new channels which have not as yet completely stabilized. Flathead Lake is quite murky at the north end and it extends a considerable distance down the west lakeshore to well past Rollins. The east lakeshore is clear from Woods Bay on to the south. The Swan River is still high and reasonably clear. Where Ihe clear water meets the muddy waler off Ihe boat ramp at Wayfarer's Recreation Area is still producing undersize bull trout in large numbers. Some anglers have taken two to Ihree dozen of these small fish without taking one meeting the 18 inch size limit. Some are being (aken trolling but bait is taking many. One can be certain many of these are being killed by taking the bait loo deep. F4C b planning to remove the 13 inch size limit on bull (rout throughout the Ffathead drainage next season. As far as this particular fishing is concerned it could be a two- headed monster. Those deep hooked fish could be legally kept in the creel and not be wasted. On the other hand the lowering of the legal size limit could very well stimulate many people to specifically go after these little fellers when they are very vulnerable. A long hard look should be taken at (his proposal. Last week Dave Larson was trolling in Woods Bay for mackinaw. Another angler had been doing the same. As their boa Is passed they shut off the engines and began bringing in their lines as they chatted. Both hooked a lish at about the same time and some friendly bantering produced a bet as to the size of the fish involved. Larson's was a hefty 32 pound mackinaw. The other angler's catch was in the 20's. Larson also look an 18-pounder. On further down the east lakeshore in the Finley Point area Joe and Dorothy Pomajevich. with slight help from Waif Kasterg. took 25 kokanee in-Ihe 10-12 inch class and a four and a half pound bull trout. It is felt the average size of kokanee might be a bit larger than last year Rusty Larcombe of Lakeside and friends report taking a "few" kokanee in the Woods Bay area but nothing spectacular at last report. They are working regularly on Die project. Stanley Welch of Lakeside has been sailing right on past Fla'Jiead Lake to Lake Mary Ronan for his kokanee. He reports the fishing there is gradually picking up and admits to laking "some." Ernest Brooner of Lakeside had the formula for taking kokanee in that area last season. From the Caroline Point area the boat was aimed directly at the cross o»i the hill sooth of Bigfork. As long as Ml thQMOl Or. H W C thai heading was maintained the fishing was good. When the boat strayed from that course the fishing drastically slowed down. There just might be a reason for thai. Thompson River has been spotty. It is still high but has cleared considerably. It is going down slower than anticipated. Jim Brown is reported to have done very well about 10 days ago and to have taken some very nice rainbows. The following day it was a complete bust. Gene Will was on Thompson River last weekend and did rather poorly. "It is the first lime in years that I haven't gone down there and been able to calch ail of the fish I could eat," he stated. Bass fishir-B has slowed down since the cooler weather and apparently old Mr. Linesides ar.d his cohorts have headed for deeper waler. Wr.en the water warms up a bit they will all be back. Doc asked Charles Dustin where he had been fishing. "Foys Lake," he said, "but I haven't caught much. They really ruined it by planting those little things. It will be fall before they are even small pan-sized. They hit at a lure but aren't Wg enough to take it. Why did they plant those little things?" It was explained that for several years previous to last year the fishing there had been excellent. The high alkalinity of the water killed most fish after three years and made room for new planters. Winter fishermen took many in the 1-18 class and they grew very fasl. It was a perfec spot for put and take fishing with a good growth rate of survivors up to three years. Foy Lake was a showcase of good fish management. It was one of Ihc few successes of fish management in the Flathead in retail years. It was decided to "experiment" to save money or some other unknown reason at a time when fishing licenses were increasing greally percentagewise in price and wher. fishing license numbers sold was increasing. There are available in the Valley of Shining Mountains many many bodies of water where fish management for various reasons has failed to produce a viable fisherie. Instead'of experimenting with a failure it was decided to experiment with an already successful fisherie. The same experimental planling of very small fish last year reduced the total catch last summer drastically and reduced Uie size of the average fish taken last winter from approximately 15 to 10-11 inches. Anglers apparently face another season of experimenting with a previously vigorous and successful fisherie. Unfortunately. Foy Lake is under a cloud and going downhill Culrifying at a rapid rate.) Alkalinity is increasing, water levels are going down, pollution into the lake is increasing, and at the same lime use of the lake is increasing. Algae in the water and ' plankton are increasing lo Ihe extent it interferes with fishing at times. Turbidity of the water is increasing. Foy Lake is dying. Answer Co the problem lies in bringing water into the lake. A meeting was held last Thursday evening with interested public. Friends of Foy Lake, and Ihe Flathead 208 Study as to resloritig the lake Federal funds are available for SO per cent of Ihe cost bul application must be made before June 15 Time is short. Public support is needed One of the handiest items for a fisherman is a trail fishing rod which breaks down into small pieces lor easy packing and which can be used either for a casting rod or a fly rod. The Sportsman has some dandies and in a wide variety of choices. They are just the thing for Father's Day Good lishirg' I
