By United Press International An epidemic of "Upsetitis," that hit several high-ranking college basketball teams over the weekend and shook up (he top ten, nearly claimed another victim Monday night when Illinois came oul wilh an aggressive first half against top- ranked Indiana. But then there was Ihe second half. "We were struggling," said Indiana Coach Bobby Knighl following a nervous 73-57 victory -- the lloosicrs' 22 straight regular season win. "They played a real aggressive zone and we couldn't establish any kind of rhythm. Most teams that have zoned up have had to abandon it early." Illinois showed Indiana a 2-3 zone and in the first half Ihe score was lied seven limes as the Illini shot a superb 65 per cent from Ihe field and Tom Carmichael grabbed 11 rebounds. Bul it's tough lo keep up an effort like Ihal very long and Indiana, which led only 36-34 al the half after Quinn Buckner hit a shot al the buzzer, wailed for Ihe Illini to cool off a bit. The Hoosiers came oul with light pressing defense in the second half and slowly stretched (heir lead lo nine poinls. Then Illinois' hopes came crashing down when Carmichae! fouled out. Buckner had six sleals along wilh his 17 poinls (or Indiana. Scolt May, who fouled out with about seven minules to play, held flick Schmidt to 10 points and led the Hoosiers with 19 poinls. Nate Williams led Illinois with 17 points. Elsewhere, second-ranked North Carolina Stale whipped Duke, 95-71, sixth-ranked Alabama beat Florida, 73-07, seventh- ranked Kentucky edged Vanderbilt, 01-90, Michigan State clipped Northwestern, 54-50, Houston dumped Stanford. 74 M, Ohio State defeated 1'urdue, 9387, Michigan nipped Wisconsin. 75-73 in overtime, Tennessee ripped Louisiana State, 90-79, Auburn edged Georgia, 65-G'l, Furinan whipped Davidson, 99- 7G, Canisius tripped Buffalo State, 100-99 in overtime, Niagara heal Jacksonville, 7H-76 in overtime. Oregon romped over Air force, 77--I7, and New Mrxicn State lieat Tulsa, 76-W. Wilh All-America David Thompson hilling 22 points and freshman Kenny Carr notching 21. North Carolina Slate easily beat Duke lo gain a share of Ihe lead in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings. Duke was paced by Cob I'lcischer's 19 points. Thompson scored 15 of his 22 points in the second half as the Wolfpack padded a 49-:i7 intermission edge. Carr's 21 (Mints matched his career high. Other Wolfpack players in double figures included Moe Rivers with 20, Monte Towc with 1G and Phil Spence wilh 10. playing contract calls for million wilh payments spread over a longer lime. II is also guaranteed by others, Garry said, even if something happens lo the I'orlland learn. Walton recently missed 20 games and some newspapers accused him of malingering. "It was the newspapers, nol Ihe owners, who made that false accusation." Garry said. "In fact, the owners have been very solicitous wilh him." Garry said his client had a painful bone spur on the lop of his inslep. "The doctors lold him to take pain pills and go on playing," he suid. "Imagine Ihal-jusl telling him to go oul and play while he is in pain." He said Walton wcnl to Ixis Angeles and took acupuncture treatments which appear lo have helped him. Bul there is no thought of breaking his contract, fiarry said. "He is a legal slave, bul a well paid one. Master pays well--at least for some of the slaves." Bengal Hayes tabbed NEW ORLEANS (UP!) Milwaukee Coach Larry Costello figured the percentages wfere in his favor by going lo John McGlocklin (or an outside sh'ol with the'score tied, 115-115, and jusl seven'seconds showing"on Ihe clock.. Costcllo figured right, and his Bucks defeated Ihe New Orleans Jazz Monday night, 117-115, lo even (heir record at 23-23 -in McGlocklin's 15-foot jumpef'as the buzzer sounded. ' "\Ve intended all along to go to McGlocklin for that final shot as he had been hoi for us outside tonight," Coslello said. ' · The Jazz lefl McGlocklin ope'n lo score the winning points when they concentrated on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the game's leading scorer with 41 points:' "We knew they'd fall back oh Jabbar. We were hoping We could squeeze McGlocklin in Ihe open for a game winner," Costello said. NBA staidiigs · Eastern Conference A t l a n t i c Civilian pel. Boston Buffalo ..
