Nause Seven Down In Arden Classic NORTH MIQMI BEACH. Fla. (AP) JoAnne Carner, putting poorly but blasting tee shots through stiff winds, took a commanding three-stroke lead in the Elizabeth Arden Golf Classic with a second round of 6-under-par 66. Carner began Friday's round two strokes behind the leaders, but quickly took control with a 5-under 31 on the front nine of the 6,092-yard Turnberry Isle County Club course. Her only birdie on the back nine came at the 17th, and she missed an 11-foot birdie putt on the final hole which would have allowed her to tie the course record. ' Her two-round total of 8-under 136 left her three shots in front of Alice Miller, whose 69 Friday was the second-best round of the day. Pat Bradley is third at 141. Martha Nause of Sheboygan had . a second round 70 for 143. Waukesha native Lauri Peterson shot a 73 for 149. All-Stater Sharkey To Sign With Badgers WAUSAU, Wis.

The Bucks went on to win their 10th straight game. (AP Laserphoto) SEATTLE (AP) - Milwaukee Bucks forward Terry Cummings seems to be thriving on the challenge of winning. Cummings scored 32 points Friday night as Bucks extended their National Basketball Association winning streak to 10 games with a 109-91 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. , ' "When you build up a winning streak or you become known as a winner, everybody is waiting for you," Cummings said. Teammate Sidney Moncrief added 21 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, to go with 11 assists and 11 rebounds for the Bucks, who have won the first five games on a six-game road trip that concludes tonight in Portland. . . "It would be nice, very nice," to go unbeaten on the Western excursion, Moncrief said. "Portland always plays tough. We're looking forward to it." Moncrief scored 12 points in the last eight minutes as the Bucks turned back the stubborn Sonics in a contest that pitted the NBA's two stingiest defenses. "In the first half, the Sonics forced us into a half-court game," Moncrief said. "In the fourth quarter we were able to get into an open-court game and make them play from behind." ; ; Besides shooting SO percent from the field to Seattle's 43 percent, the Bucks outrebounded the Sonics 53-30. "We rebounded real well." Cummings said. "That was a big key to the game." Milwaukee reserve center Paul Mokoski pulled down nine rebounds as he, starter Alton Lister and another, reserve. Randy Breuer, took turns-guarding Jack Sikma. The Seattle center was held to 10 points and four rebounds in 34 minutes. . ; "We tried to not let Jack Sikma beat our ball club," Moncrief said. "We put a lot of pressure on him. We double-teamed him a lot." . "Mokeski was terrific," Milwaukee Coach Don Nelson said. "Breuer played very well. We were just super in the second half. We couldn't afford to get into a half-court slowdown game with them." The victory boosted Milwaukee's record to 33-14, third best in the league, while Seattle slipped to 21-27. Seattle Coach Lenny Wilkens said, "It's tough playing back-to-back when a team is waiting for , you." The Sonics beat San Antonio in the Kingdome while the. Bucks watched Thursday night. "It's tough on Jack playing back-to-back games," Wilkens said. "The way he gets banged around at both ends of the court takes a lot out of him. Jack is stronger after a day off. . "Fatigue caught up with us. When you get tired, you stand around on offense and get outre-bounded, and that's what happened." UW Hockey Team Defeats Colorado MADISON, Wis. (AP) - First-period goals by Paul Houston, Jim Johannson and Paul Houck gave . Wisconsin a 3-0 lead on the way to a 7-2 Western Collegiate Hockey Association victory over Colorado College Friday night.

North Wins, South Loses Jazz Sit Down Dantley, Win Anyway; Bird, Ainge Trigger Celtics Past KC After that, Johnson hit one for Preble and Olson scored from the inside for 44-41 before Brad Flipse made one free throw for South and 44-42. ' . Then came Roy's free throw that precipitated Wall's fourth foul. ' Cook's two free throws on that foul made it 45-44, but then Preble scored seven straight for a 52-44 lead while Wall was putting on his dribbling show. But South, too, refused to fold despite its frustration with Wall, and the Redmen came back to out-score Preble 6-2 as Naze, Jeff Koell-mer and Daane hit and trail by only 54-50 with with just under two minutes left. But interwoven in those final moments were three critical turnovers for the Redmen and score- less possessions do not help come-. back tries. Preble scored six straight, bumped it to 60-50. It was then that some of the bundled up fans left to go start their cars. "We made some crucial errors. We turned the ball over a couple times down the stretch, and that hurts," Peterson said. "We missed shots we had to make and they made the ones they had to make." "We were concerned," Preble's Keith Wall said. "They have scoring potential from three players: . Daane is a good shooter, Schmidtke has been scoring well and Naze is one of the top players in the conference. Then they can come in with Koellmer off the bench and he can hurt you. Usually you don't find a team with many good shooters. "And we didn't have a good first half," he said in answer to Green Bay newsmen pressing him for reasons why the game was so tight. "We always try to play hard and of course we wanted to at the start of the second half, but we just couldn't get anything to drop. We won it and that's what counts. You know, we're not supposed to be this good anyway. We like to think of ourselves as just being a scrappy little basketball team. We're happy to be winning and each week that d this goes on makes us happier." South's jayvees played another very fine game and defeated Preble 63-50. Mark Lohse with 20 points, Tom Schmidtke with 15 and Kevin Jones with 10 led the way. Lohse and Jones divided 22 rebounds. North 74 East 42 The coach was satisfied, and when the coach is satisfied, North has played a good basketball game. "We can't play much better," Tom Desotell said. "We were intense throughout, ran well and passed extremely well. "Our three all-conference players were not sharp last weekend and I think their pride was hurt a little. "tonight was a great performance. Even I can't find many things to criticize!" The Raiders were just plain awesome in winning their 14th game in 15 tries this season. The "Big 3" did the majority of the damage as Troy Rodoll gave his Mike Rozier Signs With USFL's Bulls JACKSONVILLE. Fla. (AP) -Mike Rozier, former University of Nebraska running back who won the Heisman Trophy in 1983, has signed a multiyear contract with the Jacksonville Bulls of the United States Football League. Rozier played last season for the now-defunct Pittsburgh Maulers of theUSFL. Rozier, who played much of last season with an ankle injury, rushed 223 times for 792 yards and scored three touchdowns.

His numbers were 15 points, mostly from the perimeter, and a team record 10 assists. "Peter was at his best tonight," Desotell said. Most of his assists were directed toward 6-foot-10'2 Kurt Portmann, who played the best game of his career ll-for-15 from the floor, a team high eight rebounds, four dunks and three free free throws 25 points. "Several of the college people thought we were improved," Desotell said. "I've seen improvement in practice and we need to constantly strive for improvement." The teams squared off with North in its customary man-to-man and East in its customary zone. Neither team scored in the first two minutes when Dales went cross-court to Portmann breaking in from the corner and he stuffed one for a 2-0 lead. Minutes later Dales found his big target inside and again Portmann jammed one for a 6-5 lead a lead North would never give up. North went up 12-5 at the quarter and Dales' three straight jumpers were followed by still another lob pass and Portmann slam for a 21-7 North lead. The play-by-play is academic after that as North boosted its lead to 50-27 after three quarters. Portmann scored on eight of 10 of his shots in the first half for 17 of his 25 points. Mike Sprangers scored 17 points and Andy Mueller 10 for East. Mark Sprangers led East on the boards with seven rebounds. .

By The Associated Press Adrian Dantley, the National Basketball Association's third-leading scorer, spent the entire game on the bench because of disciplinary reasons as his Utah Jazz took on Dallas. And Mavericks' Coach Dick Motta was sorry to see Dantley there. "I hate to play a team with a disciplinary problem. You have a tendency to relax," Motta said Friday night after Utah beat Dallas 121-109. Utah Coach Frank Layden benched Dantley, averaging 27.6 points per game, because he missed two practices and a team public appearance in the last week. Dantley did not reveal the reason for the absences, and Layden said he expected the star forward to be back in the lineup tonight against San Antonio.

The Bulls, meanwhile, played without high- scoring forward Orlando Woolridge, who is suffering from back spasms. Rookie Michael Jordan sparked the Bulls with 31 points.

(AP Laserphoto) SportsVue Cable Folds; Bucks To Take Hard Look At Future In Milwaukee By BILL LAVELETTE MILWAUKEE (AP) - The cable television network carrying games of the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks and other Wisconsin sports attractions is ceas-' ing operations effective tonight, officials of SportsVue announced. Daniel F. Finnane, acting general manager, cited lack of subscribers for the decision to discontinue operations after less than one year in business. ' "SportsVue has not been able to reach an acceptable level soon enough for us to project a chance of survival for the network," Finnane said Friday. "Our subscriber level exceeded 18,000 customers early in the summer of 1984, but failed to move higher thereafter.. .with our current subscription level at about 16,000. "These figures simply cannot sustain the service and the projected subscriber levels for the future were not encouraging," he said. The impact of the decision on the future of the Bucks, who play in the National Basketball's Association's smallest facility with a seating capacity of about 11,000, was not clear. But owner James F. Fitzgerald said sale of the club would be considered. "When you weigh out all these things, that's one you'd have to consider. I hope there are other avenues," Fitzgerald said. The Bucks had placed significant emphasis on selling the service to subscribers throughout Wisconsin as an added source of revenue. John Steinmiller, Bucks' vice president, said the club will have to take a hard look at the future, but added he was not sure (t would be logical to conclude that the team would be sold as a result of the failure of SportsVue. The Bucks are a healthy club, Steinmiller said, but the organization cannot continue to absorb losses such as SportsVue. He said the club needed to obtain significant broadcast revenues. Steinmiller said SportsVue "was important to us because we could not survive in a small market with just television revenues from over-the-air television." Steinmiller said Bucks' officials, including Fitzgerald who was a prime supporter of SportsVue, were assessing the impact of the network's failure. Fitzgerald said he had talked with Allan H. (Bud) Selig, owner of the Brewers, about the possibility of developing another cable deal, selling packages of games or individual games. Dick Hackett, Brewers vice president for marketing, said the American League baseball club and the Bucks of the NBA lost "several million" on the cable venture. It is no secret that Minneapolis and other cities, including some with facilities already constructed, are interested in recruiting the Bucks, but "we are not taking numbers" from prospective buyers, Steinmiller said. The Bucks have indicated a decision on a larger arena may have an effect on whether the team remains in the city. City officials are reviewing the possibility of expanding the arena or building a new structure. A major handicap to the success of the cable service was the lack of a market In the city of Milwaukee, where only 300-400 homes have been wired for cable. The city contains the largest concentrated block of potential subscribers. However, wiring is scheduled to be completed in only 56 percent of the city by the end of this year and 85 percent by the end of 1986, according to Robert Welch, director of the city's Office of Telecommunications. SportsVue, a joint venture of the Brewers and Bucks, went on the air April 3, 1984, with a schedule loaded with coverage of Brewers, Bucks, University of Wisconsin and Marquette University sporting events. The service will end operations with the broadcast Saturday night of the Bucks' game with the Trail Blazers from Portland. Finnane raid cable operators will not be charged for Friday's Bucks' game with the SuperSonics at Seattle and Saturday's game. When operations cease, SportsVue will have carried 192 events during its approximately 10-months of operation, he said. SportsVue, which was not a full-time sports network such as ESPN, sold Its services to cable system operators who in turn provided it to viewers. Finnane said Wisconsin SportsVue, the magazine of the network, published its final edition Jan. 24. Subscribers to the network and the magazine would be reimbursed for unused portions of their payments. Prior to Friday's announcement, SportsVue announced it would reduce its programing by half effective March 1. Finnane said at the time that SportsVue was cutting back its original plan to carry 200 , events per year. SportsVue had about 600 subscribers in the Appleton area. Jim Carver, vice president of marketing with Cablevision of the Fox Cities, said he was sorry to see SportsVue fold. "I thought it had some real good things to offer," he said. "Evidently, they couldn't make it work." . . "
