The Salina Journal Monday, January 13,1986 Page 11 Jackson stars in Japan Bowl By The Associated Press Bo Jackson, the Heisman Trophy winner, still is undecided between playing professional football or baseball. If the decision depends on how big a contract he College football is offered, football could win out — after Jackson boosted his stock by running for 171 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries Sunday, leading the East to a 31-14 victory over the West in the Japan Bowl at Yokohoma. Two other college football all- star games were played Saturday. At Stanford, Calif., the East defeated the West 18-7 in the Shrine game, with the help of defensive tackle Jon Hand of Alabama, and at Honolulu, the West beat the East 23-10 in the Hula Bowl. Jackson, the star running back and center fielder from Auburn, electrified a crowd of about 30,000 in the Japan Bowl, scoring on a 57- yard run, a 69-yard pass play and a 1-yard plunge. His total rushing yardage broke the Japan Bowl record of 85 yards and his three touchdowns surpassed the game's record by one. The performance earned Jackson the game's outstanding offensive player award and the Joe Roth Memorial Trophy, named for the California quarterback who died of cancer two months after the 1977 Japan Bowl. Afterward, the multi-talented Jackson, also a standout sprinter, said he would not decide until the summer whether he would sign a pro football or baseball contract. The East outgained the West, 546 yards to 190, and West Coach Hayden Fry of Iowa said the play of All-American defensive lineman Mike Hammerstein of Michigan was a key factor in keeping his team bottled up. Illinois' David Williams also set a Japan Bowl record for reception yardage, catching seven passes for 176 yards, including a 58-yard TD strike from Louisiana State's Jeff Wickersham. California's Dwight Garner also scored on a long play, returning a kickoff 70 yards. Horf ord remains ineligible AP Auburn's Bo Jackson had an MVP performance in Sunday's Japan Bowl. In the Shrine game, Hand, a 6- foot-7, 275-pounder, batted down three passes, had one sack, made five tackles including four unassisted, and blocked a field goal attempt in earning Defensive Player of the Game honors. "He didn't surprise me by winning this award," Alabama coach Ray Perkins said. "He played a terrific game." ' Ohio State coach Earle Bruce called Hand's performance "something special." With the help of Hand, the East limited the West to 26 net yards rushing and intercepted four passes by Mark Rypien of Washington State. LSU's Garry James, who combined with Slippery Rock's Chuck Sanders to pace a 225-yard East rushing attack, was named the Offensive Player of the Game. James ran for two touchdowns while gaining 83 yards on 19 carries. The game attracted some 77,000 fans — the largest crowd in the charity game's 61-yard history. At Honolulu, Doug Gaynor of Cal State-Long Beach passed for two West touchdowns and was named the outstanding offensive player. Roger Alexander of Penn State took defensive honors. The West defense held the East to 90 yards until the fourth quarter, when the East scored its only touchdown. Overall, the West had a total of 408 yards, compared with 161 for the East, and a 25-9 advantage in first downs. "The best thing we did was punt the ball," quipped East coach Johnny Majors of Tennessee. NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Much- traveled 7-foot basketball star Tito Horford remains ineligible to play at the University of Houston because of an illegal recruiting contact in 1984, an NCAA appeals committee ruled Sunday. Whether he's eligible to play anywhere else is something that will be determined later, said Dave Maggard, athletic director at California and chairman of the committee. Also Sunday, the appeals committee said that world-class sprinter Joe DeLoach can regain his eligibility at Houston next year, instead of being barred from the school entirely, and that two Baylor basketball players — Eric Johnson and Darryl Middleton — will be eligible for the final eight games of the regular season instead of having to sit out the rest of the campaign. Horford, a native of the Dominican Republic, signed a national letter of intent to play at Houston, but a squabble arose over the validity of the signature on the letter. That became moot when the NCAA ruled that assistant basketball coach Bonnie Schverak illegally contacted Horford during the no-contact period in July 1984. KCAC honors Coyotes' Pleiman Kansas Wesleyan's Russ Pleiman has been named Player of the Week in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. The 6-8 senior center scored 55 points and grabbed 36 rebounds in the Coyotes' victories over St. Mary of the Plains, Baker and Friends last week. Pleiman, a three-time All-KCAC selection, shot 74 percent from the field and made 20 of 27 free throw attempts to help Wesleyan improve its overall record to 9-1. The KCAC also named Shelley Balthazor as the women's Player of the Week. Horford played high school basketball at Marian Christian in Houston and was on the University of Houston campus at the start of this school season, awaiting an appeal of the ruling that he was ineligible. But he showed up suddenly at Louisiana State University and signed to play there. However, he failed to show up for a preseaspn scrimmage and was dismissed from the team. For several days after that, he was reported to be in Washington, New York, Houston, Baton "Rouge and other points before again showing up at Houston. "The committee believed that the University of Houston had a decided advantage in visiting (Horford) in the non-contact period at his home in the Dominican Republic," Maggard said. Although evidence was introduced that other schools had representatives there at the same time, the committee was concerned with Horford's appeal and not with determining the possible guilt of other schools, he said. "Because of the national attention given this case and the complexity, we simply wanted to focus and be as RALPH WEIGEL Bonds - Insurance Phone 827-2906 115 East Iron Wesleyan, Marymount cagers in action tonight All four of Sauna's college basketball teams will be in action tonight. Marymount's women will entertain Baker University; Marymount's men travel to Chickasha, Okla., to meet the University of Science and Arts; and both Kansas Wesleyan teams will be at Sterling for Kansas Conference matchups. The Marymount women will attempt to snap a two-game losing streak when the Spartans entertain Baker University in a 7 p.m. tipoff at Smoot Gymnasium. MC had won 12 of its previous 13 games before being beaten by Northeastern (Okla.) State, 67-63, and Pittsburg State, 7163. The Lady Spartans, who own a 13-5 record, defeated Baker six days ago in Baldwin City, 76-44. Marymount's men, 11-9, will be seeking their second win of the year over Science and Arts. In their Nov. 9 season opener, the Spartans nudged the Drovers, 77-76. But the two key players in that Spartan victory — Doug Butler and Lonnie Sanders — are currently academically ineligible to compete. Butler scored 29 points, while Sanders hit two free throws with seven seconds remaining to lift MC to the win. Kansas Wesleyan's women will attempt to rebound from their first loss of the year Saturday night. The Lady Coyotes saw their perfect (7-0) record halted by Friends, 74-54, in Wichita. The KW men will take a six-game winning streak and 9-1 overall record into tonight's game. The Coyotes are sitting atop the KCAC standings with a 5-0 record following Saturday night's 73-67 win over Friends. Tonight's KW-Sterling games are scheduled for 6 and 8 p.m. The makeup games were originally snowed out on Dec. 10. Patriots (Continued from Page 9) fourth fumble. They also got a key interception by Fred Marion to end a third-quarter drive that could have put the Dolphins back in the game and an end- zone interception by Raymond Clayborn to end a fourth-quarter threat. "We try to capitalize on other teams' mistakes and we really work on that," said Marion, who also knocked down four passes. "They made things happen. I'm disappointed we didn't," said Coach Don Shula of the Dolphins, who had won eight straight. "We never did the things we needed to do to win a game of this caliber." "We just didn't execute," said quarterback Dan Marino, who was just 20 for 48 for 248 yards and two interceptions. "New England mostly did the same things they have done all year on defense. We knew they weren't going to do anything different. We just put the ball on the ground too often." New England became the first team ever to reach the Super Bowl with three road wins and just the third wild-card team to reach the NFL championship game. "They ran the football well and we couldn't stop them," said Miami linebacker Jackie Shipp. "We have no excuses. The Patriots are one of the most talented teams in the NFL." New England led 17-7 at halftime, then got a quick touchdown after Greg Hawthorne recovered Lorenzo Hampton's fumble on the first play of the second half. The Pats ran for 255 yards as James, Tony Collins and Robert Weathers kept ripping off large chunks of yardage right up the middle of the Miami defense. James wound up with 105 yards on 22 carries. Eason threw scoring passes of four yards to Collins, two yards to Weathers and one yard to tight end Derrick Ramsey. Miami blew three scoring opportunities in losing at home for the first time in 10 games this season. One came when Dan Johnson dropped a Marino pass in the end zone that could have cut the deficit to 17-14 at halftime. The other two came on interceptions by Marion and Clayborn. They lost another when Julius Adams recovered a Joe Carter fumble after the Dolphins had closed to 24-14 early in the fourth quarter. That led to the final score of the game, a 1- yard run by Mosi Tatupu after a drive on the ground that consumed five minutes. The victory was the 12th in the last 14 games for the Patriots, who began the season with three losses in their first five games, including a 20-7 defeat in Chicago in the second week.

Among the matters he said that were not discussed by the committee were reports that Horford took part in a Dominican Republic summer basketball league in which players are paid. Houston Athletic Director Tom Ford said he was happy for DeLoach, but disappointed that Horford did not regain his eligibility. "We're disappointed for Tito that he was not permitted the right to go to the school of his choice," Ford said. He said he still believes his school and Horford were innocent of any serious wrongdoing, that no significant advantage was gained by contacting Horford or transporting him from one city in the Dominican Republic to another. Mike Johnson, Houston faculty representative and president of the Southwest Conference, said Ford's comments should not be interpreted as a protest, because Houston will abide by the ruling.
