The Salina Journal Saturday, January 11,1986 Page J5 Kansas hosts Mustangs today LAWRENCE — Kansas continues one of the nation's toughest non- league basketball schedules today when the Jayhawks play Southern Methodist University at Allen Field House. Tip-off for the regionally-televised game (KSNW, Channel 3 and KMBC, Channel 9 on Salina cable) is set for 1:05 p.m. Kansas, ranked 9th this week in The Associated Press poll, brings a 13-2 record into the game and a 24-game home-court winning streak. KU boasts victories over highly-regarded teams such as Pepperdine, Louisville, North Carolina State, Kentucky and Arkansas while losing only to Duke (ranked No. 3) and Memphis State (No. 6 this week). The Jayhawks' last action was on Monday when they defeated Detroit, 6051, Southern Methodist is 10-3, dropping a 73-61 decision on Wednesday to Texas A&M in a Southwest Conference game. The Mustangs' other losses were to Oklahoma (92-78) and Pepperdine (75-65 in overtime). Kansas coach Larry Brown will go with his normal starting lineup of forwards Danny Manning (15.1 points per game) and Ron Kellogg (16.1), center Greg Dreiling (11.6) and guards Cedric Hunter (7.9) and Calvin Thompson (15.5). SMU's starting five consists of 6-8 sophomore Terry Thomas (5.2) and 6-* senior Kevin Lewis (18.8) at forward, 6-9 junior center Terry Williams (15.8), 5-10 senior guard Butch Moore (11.5) and 6-4 junior guard Scott Johnson (6.2). Shockers meet Redbirds tonight WICHITA — Wichita State will try to snap a two-game losing streak tonight when they meet the Illinois State Redbirds in an 8:05 game at Henry Levitt Arena. The Shockers, 1-1 in the Missouri Valleyand 8-5 overall, have already lost twice this week — 77-60 to Kansas State on Monday and 57-55 to Bradley on Thursday. Illinois State is 1-1 in the MVC and 5-7 overall. The Redbirds have been idle since Monday night's 58-54 loss at Indiana State. The Redbirds are a young club with two freshmen guards, one sophomore and two juniors in the starting lineup. Bill Braksick, a 7-0 junior center, is averaging 13 points and 6 rebounds a game, while Tony Holifield, a 6-7 sophomore forward, is scoring 12.5 points and pulling down 6.6 rebounds a game. ( Spartan men on the road again HASTINGS, Neb. — Marymount's men's basketball team returns to action tonight when the Spartans play their fifth consecutive road game. Marymount, which went 2-2 on its recent trip to California, brings an 11-8 record into its 7:30 contest against the Hastings Broncos. But the game is being overshadowed by some off-the-court news surrounding the Spartans. Marymount, which lost starters Lonnie Sanders and Doug Butler to academic problems last weekend, will likely be without three more starters tonight. Junior guard Vernon Carter has been "temporarily suspended" from the team and sophomore forward Gerard Ward has re-injured a troublesome knee, according to MC coach Dan Pratt. In addition, leading scorer Rich Hamilton is at least temporarily academically ineligible. "We'll be operating with adversity," Pratt said. It is possible that Hamilton, the Spartans' leading scorer and rebounder, could still play tonight, Pratt said. "He has an incomplete (English) class (from the first semester)," the MC coach said. "He turned it (a final paper) in a day late. We're looking for his teacher but it's still got to be processed. If we find her before game time, he'll play." Marymount will be attempting to avenge a 72-70 loss to the Broncos on Nov. 15 in the Benedictine Classic. In that contest, 6-9 David Lang scored 26 points to pace the Broncos to their win. As expected, the Spartans will have a new-look starting lineup. It will include freshmen David Belew and Joe Mansfield, juniors Ernest Dugan and Ben Smith, and senior Anthony Stephens. Valesente hires nine coaches LAWRENCE (AP) — Bob Valesente, new University of Kansas football coach, has retained three assistant coaches from last season while hiring six new assistants. Mike Monos will return for his fourth season and move from coaching inside linebackers to outside linebackers. George Warhop and Joe Pannunzio have been promoted from graduate assistants to full-time assistants. Warhop.will coach the offensive line while Pannunzio will coach tight ends and special teams. Dave Dunkelberger will serve as defensive coordinator and coach middle linebackers. Dunkelberger had been on the Southwestern Louisiana staff for eight seasons. Louis West will coach the defensive secondary after spending the past two seasons at Western Michigan. The running backs coach will be Paul "Rocky" Alt, formerly offensive coordinator at Moorehead State in Kentucky. Jan Quarless, offensive line coach at Bowling Green will coach the offensive line for the Jayhawks. Robert Ford, an assistant coach with the Houston Gamblers of the USFL will move to Kansas to coach wide receivers. Independence Community College coach Jim Cochran will coordinate recruiting for the Jayhawks. Valesente, appointed Kansas head coach after Mike Gottfried accepting the head coaching position at Pitt, will continue to coach the quarterbacks. Parrish adds three more coaches MANHATTAN — Kansas State head football coach Stan Parrish has announced the addition of three more members to his coaching staff for the 1986 season. The three are Mark Deal, who will coach the KSU running backs, Dave Flegal, who will coach the defensive line, and Leo Brouhard, who be the recruiting coordinator. Deal, 28, comes to K-State from Marshall University where he served under Parrish. Deal is the younger brother of Mike Deal, who will coach K- State's offensive line. Flegal, 28, also comes from Marshall where he coached the defensive line for two years. Before Parrish that, Flegal coached the defensive line for three years at Akron, Ohio. Brouhard, 35, is a 1972 Kansas State graduate and has served the last eight years as head coach and defensive coordinator at Rubidoux High School in California. The three additions brings to seven the number of assistant coaches who Parrish has named to his staff. Deal, Flegal and Brouhard join Ken Bowman, Jerry Hartman, Mike Deal and Bill Singler. Yanks, Braves highest paid teams NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees and the Atlanta Braves have by far the biggest player payrolls in major league baseball, USA Today reported in its Friday editions. The Yankees' 1985 payroll for 26 players was $14,205,465, an average of $546,364, the newspaper said. It listed the Braves' average salary for 27 players at $540,988. The Yankee average in 1984 was $458,544, and the Braves' average was $402,689. The lowest payroll among the 26 major league teams for 1985, according to USA Today, was Seattle, which paid 31 players $5,260,514 for an average of $169,694. The newspaper said it obtained the salary information from the Major League Players Association. The complete list for all major league teams is listed in the Scoreboard, Page 14. Valesente Berry the glue the Patriots needed MIAMI (AP) - On a November day nearly 30 years ago, a young Baltimore receiver named Raymond Berry burned the Washington Redskins with a dozen receptions. His principal victim was an aging corn- erback named Don Shula. It's typical of Berry that he exonerates the man he will coach against in Sunday's AFC title game. ' "I caught maybe six against Don. I lined up at tight end some of the time," Berry says. "Besides, Johnny Unitas had a hot day at quarterback and their defensive system was pathetic. They left him out there with no help and maybe moved a linebacker a couple of yards once in a while. Heck, he had 54 yards of the field to cover." Raymond Berry, Hall of Fame pass receiver, has brought the same kind of humility to the New England Patriots. It's worked. Since Berry took over as head coach midway through last season, the Patriots have been a different bunch from the group of grumblers and underachievers that usually finished 9-7 and 8-8 when they should have been 124 and 11-5. This year, they were 11-5, winning nine of their last 13, then won two playoff games on the road to reach Sunday's AFC title game at the Orange Bowl against Simla's Dolphins. A lot of his success is due to his ability to communicate with his players and some is stems his success as a player, an unusual trait in a profession where the best coaches often have mediocre playing careers. "Raymond was a dedicated, hardworking player who made himself into one of the best that's ever played the game," says Shula, who eventually coached Berry for four seasons with the Colts. "He did it with no frills. Everything was done for a reason. You see that in the things he's done as a coach. He's brought them farther than they've been in a long time.'' "He is the difference. He has MC women drop 67-63 decision .PITTSBURG - Margaret Thompson of Northeastern State (Okla.) brought All-America credentials into Friday's game with Marymount in the opening round of the Coal Miners Classic. And after Thompson scored 22 points and grabbed 9 rebounds to lead the Lady Reds to a 67-63 victory over Marymount, the 5-11 standout drew raves from Spartan coach DarylHoelting. "We were told in the scouting report she was an All-American and after seeing her, she gets my vote," Hoelting said.' 'She can play.'' Thompson wasn't the lone reason Northeastern was able to halt Marymount's seven-game winning streak. Lady Red guard Sheila Buzzard added 15 points and Gina Ellis came off the Northeastern bench to chip in 16 points. "We lost to an excellent basketball team," Hoelting said. "It's a game we'd have liked to have won but I was pleased with our effort." Northeastern broke on top by 12 points in the early going before Marymount went on a run of its own to take a 22-18 lead midway through the first half. The Spartans, though, turned ice-cold and fell behind 34-28 at intermission. Northeastern led by as many as 12 points in the second half but Marymount again battled back. The Spartans got within two points (65-63) with 1:17 remaining before their rally died. Junior center Andre Schmidt continued to pace the Spartan attack, scoring 23 points to take game-high honors. Ruth Stallbaumer and Debbie Sanders also finished in double figures for Marymount with 16 and 15 points, respectively. The Spartans, now 12-4 overall, return to tournament action today when they meet host Pittsburg State in a 3p.m. contest.

Tunney to referee NFC title game CHICAGO (AP) - Jim Tunney, a veteran of 26 seasons in the National Football League, will be the referee for Sunday's National Conference championship game between the Los Angeles Rams and Chicago Bears, NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle said Friday. New England quarterback Steve Grogan warms up Friday at the team's training camp in Miami. Grogan was reactivated last week after spending two months on the injured reserve list with a knee injury. calmed the team down and made them believe in themselves," says Shelby Jordan of the Los Angeles Raiders, one of the many players traded away from New England in contract disputes. "He's a coach who has sacrificed his own ego for the players and the team." "The only way to play the game is to play for someone who loves it the way I do," says John Hannah, New England's All-Pro guard. "This man loves the game the way I do." "Whatever Raymond tells me to do, I'D do because I'll know he has a reason for it. If he told me to climb a pole, I'd do it," says Steve Nelson, who has played for four different coaches in his 12 years with the Patriots. "But it's more than that. You respect him. You know he's been there as a player. And he communicates so well with us. He talks to us every day for 15 minutes and every day it's different and every day it's interesting." Berry took over the Patriots last season as a conciliator in a typically chaotic New England moment—Ron Meyer had been fired after trying to fire popular defensive coordinator Rod Rust. Enter Berry, a former New England assistant who had been working in real estate while on the side conducting Sunday chapels for teams that visited Foxboro. That final half of his first season, Berry was like most interim coaches, going 4-4 as the Pats finished with a 53 record. His only major tactical move was to install Craig James at fullback after Meyer, James' coach at SMU, refused to play him because he thought he'd be accused of favoritism. This year, the Pats started 2-3 as Berry experimented with different combinations. Since then, they've won nine of 11 regular-season contests and two playoff games, both on the road, giving them the opportunity Sunday to become the first team to reach the Super Bowl by winning three away games. Is that Berry's doing? "There's no great master plan because I'm no genius," he says. "I'm just me. I just do things that have to be done. If I don't believe in things, then I don't do them." Take office hours. There are days when Berry is at work at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. or 4 a.m., reviewing films. Lying awake in bed with x's and o's running through his head, he simply gets up and and lets them run through his head at work. But he's just as liable to go home at 2 p.m. when he feels sleepy. .,., Bears take nothing for granted CHICAGO (AP) — Twenty-two years ago, when the Chicago Bears last played this game, it was for all the marbles, the National Football League championship, and they won it. Now "League" has been replaced by "Conference" and it's just one more step — albeit the last one — on the road to the ultimate game. And to get there, the Bears have to get past the Los Angeles Rams. A lot of fans and so-called experts have already conceded Chicago a berth in the Super Bowl against either the Miami Dolphins or the Dent New England Patriots. Not so Bears defensive end Richard Dent. "It's nothing that I want to talk about," he said. "AU I'm interested in now is the (NFC) championship game. You can't look over the hill until you get on top." Interestingly, it was Dent's agent who had suggested that his All-Pro client might not play in the Super Bowl if stalled contract negotiations weren't ironed out ahead of time. Now, after Dent's exceptional (3% sacks, 6% tackles) game against the New York Giants last Sunday, the Bears have sweetened their offer, to about $1.1 million a year for three years according to the Chicago Tribune. Dent spent a lot of time wrapped around Phil Simms, the Giants' quarterback, a week ago. Pre- sumably he would like to get an equally close-up look at Dieter Brock, the Rams' quarterback and an NFL rookie after 11 years in the Canadian Football League. Brock has been much maligned this season, particularly after the hype that preceded his arrival from Winnipeg, about how he had a bazooka for an arm. The press clippings and his passing were buried under the Rams' running game. Last weekend, when Eric Dickerson was roDing up a playoff-record 248 yards and two touchdowns in the 20-0 victory over Dallas, Brock completed six of 22 passes for 50 yards. "I get mad because a lot of people, here (in LA) especially, think I'm a bad quarterback, which I think is ridiculous," Brock said. "I feel I can throw the football as well as anyone. I've just got to get the chance to do it more often." But as Chicago's free safety, Gary Fencik, observed: "The Rams are most effective when they don't ask Dieter Brock to do much." In other words, the Bears would love to see him throwing more often. It would mean they have dealt with Dickerson. "The deciding factor," Chicago defensive end Dan Hampton said, "will be how well we stop Dickerson and put them in long-yardage situations. We can't take hini out of the game, but maybe we can make them use him only two downs instead of three.'' The defense's goal is to hold Dickerson under 100 yards, "but if he gets 300 and we win, I'D be happy," Hampton added. Fryar cut during family dispute? BOSTON (AP) —The knife wounds on his right hand that will keep New England Patriots star Irving Fryar from Sunday's AFC championship game were suffered during an argument between Fryar and his wife, a published report said Friday. The Patriot Ledger of Quincy, which published the story, did not identify a source for its information. Fryar, a wide receiver and the National Football League's top punt returner, returned to Boston from Miami, where the Patriots were preparing for the championship game, and club said Friday he had left "to resolve some personal issues." Fryar, who has an unlisted number, could not be reached for comment. He suffered cuts to two fingers and a tendon Wednesday, and he said at the time that he had cut himself while putting away a knife. Mary Hill, executive vice president of Goddard Memorial Hospital, where Fryar was initially treated, confirmed that Jacqueline Fryar was examined at the hospital shortly after her husband arrived. Mrs. Fryar is four or five months pregnant. "She came in with bruises, but really I think her main concern was her pregnancy," HiD said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "She wanted reassurance that her baby was all right, because of the bruises." Hill said Mrs. Fryar was examined by a physician, who found the baby was fine. Mrs. Fryar didn't say how she was bruised and wasn't asked, Hill said. Fryar's departure from Miami was announced by the Patriots in a three-line statement: "The New England Patriots announced today that Irving Fryar has returned to Boston to resolve some personal issues which developed this week. The Patriots have pledged their full support and resources to help the Fryars. The Patriots will have no further comment on this matter.'' Patrick Sullivan, general manager of the team, later said, "I'm not going to talk about it, not until we can sit down with the Fryars and talk about how we're going to approach it." Coach Raymond Berry said, "I don't want to talk about it. There's no sense in talking about it." Dr. Daniel Sigman, a plastic sur- geon, diagnosed Fryar's injury as a deep laceration of the flexor tendon at the tip of his little finger. It took one stitch to close. A cut on Fryar's ring finger was superficial, but required 10 stitches to close. Fryar had told team officials and said in interviews he suffered cuts on the ring finger and little finger of his right hand when he shoved a sharp knife into a kitchen drawer. The Fryars, who have been married for about one year, recently purchased a condominium in Easton, about 10 minutes from Goddard Hospital and a short distance from Sullivan Stadium in Foxboro where the Patriots play their home games. The Patriot Ledger said no one answered the door at the Fryar home in Easton to discuss the incident. Tigers crush Missouri Valley HAYS — Fred Campbell scored 17 points Friday night to pace a balanced Fort Hays State 1 attack as the Tigers walloped Missouri Valley, 10248. The victory improved FHSU's record to 10-3 and advanced the Tigers into tonight's title game in the Augustino's/Pepsi Invitational. In Friday's opening game, West Virginia Tech moved into the championship contest by defeating Jarvis Christian (Texas), 72-56. Fort Hays led from the outset and built a comfortable 54-21 halftime lead. Joining Campbell in double figures for the Tjgers were Mike Miller with 16 points, and Thomas Hardnett and Archie Johnson with 12 points apiece.
