Briefly The Salina Journal Tuesday, January 14,1986 Page 11 Hornets close gap on Tigers EMPORIA - Emporia State cut deeply into Fort Hays State's lead in this week's NAIA District 10 Dunkel Rankings. The Hornets, who won last weekend's Greater Kansas City Basketball Classic, improved their record to 11-1. And in the process, ESU cut Fort Hays State's 6.1-point lead a week ago to 1.0 points this week. Washburn remained in third place in the poll but the Ichabods are a whopping 52 points behind second-place Emporia State. Pittsburg State, despite two losses last week, dropped only four-tenths of a point and remained in fourth place. Marymount remained in fifth place, six-tenths of a point ahead of 6-15 Kansas Newman. And KCAC leader Kansas Wesleyan was in seventh place for the second straight week with a 34.9 rating. In the women's division, KCAC leader Friends owns the top spot with a 2.2 rating. Defending District 10 champion St. Mary of the Plains fell to second (3.93) while Marymount remained third (4.0).

(AP) - Kansas State guard Joe Wright was named player of the week Monday in the Big Eight conference after he scored 43 points in a pair of Wildcats' victories last week. Wright made 12 of 13 field goal attempts and seven of eight free throw attempts in a 77-60 Kansas State win over Wichita State last Monday night. Wright had 12 points in a 91-69 victory over Abilene Christian last Thursday. Wright, a 6-3 senior guard from Carthage, Mo., is shooting 61 percent this season and is seventh in the Big Eight scoring with an average of 17.9 points per game. Wright Corey to head Chiefs' defense KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Walt Corey, who has been associated with the Kansas City Chiefs as either a player or assistant coach for 19 of the franchise's 26 seasons, was named defensive coordinator of the club Monday. Corey, an assistant with the Chiefs for 12 seasons, [ will also coach the linebackers. He was defensive f line coach last season. The Chiefs have not had a defensive coordinator | since Coach John Mackovic fired Bud Carson fol-j lowing the 1983 season. Mackovic was criticized first { for firing Carson because of a personality clash and j then for not naming a defensive coordinator. "Walt has experience in coaching every phase of 1 the defense," said Mackovic. "Since the conclusion Corey of our season, I have spent a great deal of time pursuing all the possibilities of selecting a defensive coordinator and I am convinced that Walt is the right man for the job." Corey was a linebacker at the University of Miami and joined the old Dallas Texans of the American Football League in 1960. He played on the Chiefs team that played in the first Superbowl following the 1966 season. "I am very excited about the opportunity to put my defensive ideas into our system," Corey said. "I am happy to be taking this step in Kansas City where I know the personnel. I know the players and now I will have the opportunity to allow them to display the talents I think they have." McMahon says NFL is 'nit-picking' CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon—who does just about everything his own way — says the National Football League was "nit-picking" when it fined him for wearing an Adidas headband. "We gotta worry about nit-picking stuff like labels?" McMahon complained after the Chicago Bears defeated the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in the National Football Conference championship | game. During the game, McMahon wore a white head- i band with the word "ROZELLE" written on the! front. The move was a swipe at National Football League commissioner Pete Rozelle, who fined the [ Bears $5,000 last week because McMahon wore an Adidas headband in a game. NFL rules require players to cover up company logos on their clothing. "He's amazing," coach Mike Ditka said Monday. "I didn't know what it (headband) said, then I read it." AL season to open April 7 NEW YORK (AP) — The 1986 American League season will open Monday, April 7, with three afternoon games — Cleveland at Baltimore, Boston at Detroit and Milwaukee at Chicago — the league has announced. The Kansas City Royals, 1985 World Series champions, will begin their season Tuesday, April 8, meeting the Yankees at New York. In other Tuesday openers, California will be at Seattle, Minnesota at Oakland and Toronto at Texas. The league schedule includes 771 night games, a decrease from 802 in 1985, and only four doubleheaders — including the AL's only twi-night doubleheader, at Texas. McMahon Hornets rip BC, 103-66 EMPORIA — Emporia State blistered Bethany, 103-66, in a men's college basketball game at Emporia Monday night. Emporia State is now 12-1 while Bethany fell to 7-7 for the season. Emporia State dominated the game from start to finish, taking a 4930 halftime lead and outscoring the Swedes both from the field and the free throw line. The Hornets outscored Bethany by 20 points from the field and 17 from the free throw as the winners converted 27-of-33 free throws on 28 Bethany fouls. Brian Robinson led the Hornets with £9 points. Also in double figures were Craig Stromgren with 20 and Brian Chapman with 17. Steve Malm led Bethany with 13 points and Kale Gaston and Craig Macari added 12 each.

Panther girls keep win streak intact ByTIMHOSTETTER Sports Writer Although neither team played exceptionally well, the Concordia- Wamego girls' basketball game last Friday night generated just as much emotion and excitement as forecasted. Despite trailing by as many as eight points during the contest, top- ranked Concordia finally prevailed in overtime, 29-27. The win on Wamego's home court not only extended the Panthers' winning streak to 31 games but put CHS in excellent position to win another North Central Kansas League championship. The loss was the first in eight games for Wamego, but the Red Raiders remained in the fourth spot in this week's Salina Journal's state basketball rankings. "We knew it was going to be difficult for us because of the circumstances," said Concordia head coach Dick Switzer. "They had played a game the Tuesday before and we were playing our first game in 20 days. We were also playing on their home court and they really wanted to beat us." Wamego didn't institute a stall, but did slow the game down. Trying to run with the Panthers can be self- destructing because Switzer has used 15 players in most of Concordia's games this season. He utilized nine against Wamego. The teams were tied at 6-6 after the first quarter. Wamego, which placed fourth in last year's 4A state tournament, outscored the Panthers, 8-2, in the second period to take a 14-8 halftimelead. Concordia, which won the 4A state title last season with a 25-0 record, fought back to within one point with eight seconds left.

Wamego couldn't get a game- winning basket down and the game— tied 25-25—went to overtime. Given new life, Concordia scored the first four points of the extra period and then held off the Red Raiders. "Neither team played very well," Switzer said. "It's nice, though, to go in and play a team like Wamego and win despite playing poorly. I thought I did a poor job of preparing our kids for the game. I think we were more concerned with what Wamego was going to do rather than what we were going to do." A team's bench strength often re- Sooner freshman is academically ineligible NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — University of Oklahoma freshman basketball player Stacey King has been declared academically ineligible for the rest of the season, coach Billy Tubbs said Monday. "We are all disappointed, of course, but we'll go on," Tubbs said. "I think everyone at Oklahoma feels the best of Stacey King's career is ahead of him." The 6-foot-10 King, from Lawton, will now work to regain his eligibility before the start of the 1986 fall semester, Tubbs said. It had been reported that perhaps some other players on the seventh- ranked Oklahoma team would be declared ineligible Monday, but that was not the case. "We are pleased to announce rest Budget (Continued from Page 9) mendations public is to share with the greater Salina community my plans for the college," Johnson said. The Marymount president said both he and the Board of Trustees will be available at an open forum Monday from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. to discuss the "whys and wherefores' ' of his proposals. ' 'I will be recommending that some programs operate with reduced resources and some few programs be eliminated," Johnson said. "Should some members of the public want to indicate their significant financial support for any one of these programs, the college would take that into consideration in making a final determination." of our players are eligible," Tubbs said. King played in 14 games this year and averaged six points and 3.8 rebounds per game. He also led the team with 26 blocked shots. On another matter, Tubbs said senior guard Shawn Clark has regained his academic eligibility. But university officials declared Clark ineligible in order to receive an immediate opinion from the NCAA Committee on Eligibilty on another matter. Clark, along with several former Oklahoma football and basketball players, was named in a lawsuit filed in 1985 by Intersouth Sports Management Corp. of Tulsa. The lawsuit claimed Clark and the others signed agreements to let Intersouth represent them in negotiations with professional teams. The alleged agreements were used by Intersouth to secure collateral for a loan from Triad Bank in Tulsa, which later foreclosed on the loan. Washburn dumps Ravens, 82-70 TOPEKA (AP) - Tom Meier pumped in 34 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Washburn Ich- abods to an 82-70 victory over the Benedictine Ravens Monday night in non-conference college basketball action. Washburn, 13-1, led throughout the game and held a 38-35 advantage at the half. Greg Wilson helped the Ichabods with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Benedictine, 2-14, was led by Greg Williams with 14, Danny Schmidt with 13 and Bill Taflinger at 10. fleets its success and Switzer predicts that by the end of the season his bench strength will be the strongest he's had at Concordia. That's a mouthful considering the reserve quality the Panthers have had the last several seasons. Erin Christensen, a 6-0 sophomore, has been a big plus for the Panthers inside. She scored six points against Wamego. "She's been improving day by day," Switzer said. "She can play either forward or center. She's been playing about a half a game for us. "This early in the season, I'm not concerned with beating teams by 40 or 50 points like some teams are," Switzer said. "I'm playing all my kids. My starters may not have the best stats because of that, but we'll be a better team down the line. You do your bench players an injustice if you don't play them during the season then expect them to do a good job in a big game late in the season." Switzer feared his team might suffer a letdown the night after the Wamego game when it traveled to Superior, Neb. But Superior tried to outrun the Panthers and Concordia literally ran the Nebraskans off the court, 74-51. Eleven players scored for Concordia's 32nd straight win. * * * The four teams ranked below Concordia in 4A remain the same this For Life insurance, check with State Farm. • Permanent Life. • Term Life. • Retirement, pension and group plans. • Universal Life.

Chase County remains the top- ranked team in 3A. Nemaha Valley moved up a notch to No. 2. While Concordia and Wamego were playing the top game in the state among the larger classes, Canton-Galva — No. 1 in 2A — and Burrton — this week's No. 1 in 1A — played the top game among the smaller classes. Canton-Galva won the 2A state title last season with three losses. Two of those defeats were to Heart of America League foe Burrton. Friday's result was no different. Burrton ran its record to 9-0 with a convincing 6245 victory over the Eagles at Canton. Considering Burrton's quality, the loss didn't drop Canton-Galva from the top spot in 2A. Burrton's win was strong enough to move it above Grinnell in the 1A rankings. Grinnell started the new year with a 62-36 win over Triplains. Ashland, Ingalls and Golden Plains all follow with perfect records. * * * Claflin remains the No. 1 team in the boys' 1A rankings. Quinter dropps from second to third after losing a 62-60 decision at home, against Bazine. Bazine, 6-0, vaults into the No. 2 spot. Mankato is fourth despite losing its first game of the year Saturday night to Belleville. Central of Burden still tops 2A with an 8-0 record. Holcomb, also 8-0, moved into second after Pittsburg Coigan suffered a one-point defeat to Erie last Tuesday. Greensburg (8-0) is a newcomer at fourth. Hesston was one of two No. 1 boys' teams to lose last week. The Swath- ers lost to Mid-Kansas League foe Hillsboro (54-53) last Tuesday. Unbeaten Wabaunsee is first this week followed by Southeast of Saline, Central Heights, Hesston and Hillsboro. Class 4A's top-ranked team, Atchison, also lost but to Kansas City Wyandotte, the No. 1 team in 6A. Both schools are defending state champions. Wyandotte escaped with a 52-51 win. Haven fell out of the 4A rankings after losses to Lyons and Hesston last week. Garnett moved into the top five with a 7-1 record. As usual, 5A has no established powerhouse. Parsons fell from the top spot this week after losing to Coffeyville, 58-54.
