28 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE WH., April 18,1173 Assistant firtd Oklahoma forfeits nine 72 grid wins NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -The University of Oklahoma Soon- ers, the nation's No. 2-ranked football team last year, will forfeit nine of its victories including its Sugar Bowl triumph over Penn State because of re- cru-'lng irregularities. Athletic Director Wade Walker told a news conference the school would forfeit every game in which freshman Kerry Jackson of Houston, Tex., the top quarterback this spring, played. That will mean Oklahoma will retain victories over only Kansas State, Iowa State and Nebraska. In addition, Walker said, the resignation of offensive line coach Bill Michael had been asked for and received. Walker said the high school transcripts of both Jackson and Mike Phillips, also of Houston, Head Coach Barry Switzer said he had assured Dr. Paul Sharp, (he university president, that no other member of his staff was involved in the incident. Walker also said that Jackson had stayed in the athletic dormitory during two visits to the OU campus when he was a high school senior. Both the transcript tampering and the dorm stays are violations of Big Eight Conference regulations, and the conference is investigating, Walker said. Walker said both Jackson and Phillips will be ineligible to take part in varsity athletics for this year at Oklahoma, ·which won the Big Eight football title last year. "However, there is no evidence at the present time that had been tampered with. He either Jackson or Phillips had said Michael had admitted he any knowledge of the tamper- had knowledge of the transcript ing or of any wrongdoing what- irregularities. soever," Walker said.

There were eight seconds left on Tuesday night when Jerry West pumped in a 15-foot shot from the baseline to shove the Lakers to a 101-99 victory over the Golden State Warriors and a 1-0 lead in their best-of-seven series for Western honors. On Sunday, with 28 seconds left, the Lakers scored to go ahead of Chicago and win the opening series finale 95-92. Warrior Jeff Mullins, who scored a dozen points in the final period and at one time marshalled a nine-point lead, commented: "We're a better team than they are, but late in a game they have two things going for them--Wilt Chamberlain goes after every ball and West is just a helluva clutch performer. "But the game should not have been that close." With 7:05 remaining in the game, the Warriors led 91-82 and from then on were outscored 19-8 as West, Keith Erickon and Jim McMillian led the charge. The Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks renew their battle for the NBA Eastern Conference tonight in New York. The Knicks, who took a ilar edge over the Pacers in the West final.

Pfficft-hif grand-slam sends Minnesota past Angels, 10-5 By BRUCE LOW1TT Associated Press Sports Writer Danny Walton's a nice guy to have in a pinch. And Tony Oliva's a nice guy to have on the bench--especially when he's the one who suggests that Walton might be better by getting off of it. Oliva, always a potent man with a bat but less than agile in the field because of recurrent knee ailments, was made for the role of designated hitter. But going into the bottom of the seventh inning Tuesday, with Minnesota trailing the California Angels 3-1 and trying to get something going, Oliva thought perhaps someone else might be better suited for the job. A few minutes later the Twins really had something going. They'd cut the California lead to 3-2, Steve Barber, a left- hander, had come on in relief of Bill Singer for the Angels, the bases were loaded...and Oliva was due up. It was Walton who got the nod this time. "It doesn't bother me to be pinch-hit for," said Oliva, who had never been pinch-hit for in his major league career. "I know when I can hit and when I can't." Quilici obviously knew when Walton could hit. "I was just thinking fly ball," the pinch-hitter said. That's what he hit, too...except it landed in the left field seats, a grand-slam home run that highlighted an eight- run explosion and carried Minnesota to a 10-5 victory. In other American League games, the Chicago White Sox clubbed Texas 10-5, the Detroit Tigers beat Boston 6-3, the Baltimore Orioles defeated the New York Yankees 4-2, the Cleveland Indians topped Milwaukee 7-3 and, in 14 innings, the Kansas City Koyals tripped Oakland 5-4. In the National League, Pittsburgh nipped St. Louis 4-3 in 14 innings, the Chicago Cubs shaded the New York Mets 1-0, Philadelphia dumped Montreal 9-6, Cincinnati blanked San Diego 3-0, Los Angeles whipped Houston 7-2 and, in a doubleheader, San Francisco swept Atlanta 15-2 and 2-0. Bill Melton also had a memorable homer Tuesday--the 100th of his major league career. It was a two-run shot deep into the upper deck in left field that triggered a five-run Chicago blitz in the fifth inning which assured them of victory over .the Rangers. The Red Sox out-homered the Tigers 3-2, with Carlton Fisk connecting twice and Rico Petrocelli once. Sparky Lyle, last year's ace of the Yankees' bullpen crew, has been sparking the enemy. On Tuesday night, he gave up a gamebreaking homer to Baltimore's Earl Williams in the eighth inning, the first in the American League for the former Atlanta catcher. *** Baseball at a Glance By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League t East Baltimore Boston Detroit Cleveland New York Milwaukee Kansas City Minnesota California Chicago Texas Oakland W. 1 7 4 5 4 3 2 West 8 5 3 3 2 2 2 3 4 5 6 5 2 3 4 4 4 6 Pet. .778 .571 .556 .444 .333 .286 .800 .625 .429 .429 .333 .250 G.B. 2 2 3 4 4 2 314 3V4 4 5 Black Hawks nip Rangers in Stanley Cup playoffs By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Shhhh.

Dean Sessions' two-run single gave the Buffs an early lead in the second game. In the fourth inning, Stu Ritscher's one-out single scored John Kilgore, who had bunted safely and stole second, for the eventual winning run. Archer entered the game in the seventh inning with two men on and none out to squelch a Tiger rally that produced one run on an infield. Denver blanks CSU by 2 to 0 FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP)--Third baseman Bob Tarvin laced a two-run triple in ithe first inning to back Kevin Iverson's three-hit pitching as the University of Denver blanked Colorado State 2-0 in college baseball Tuesday. Tarvin's two-out blow scored Dave Stcinke, who had singled, and Dan Schntzcder, who reached base on a fielders choice. Iverson struck out eight batters and walked five in boosting his record to 2-0.

LOUIS taken in their National Hockey League semifinal series against the New York Rangers. Billy Reay, always affable coach of the Black Hawks, had just finished delivering his assessment of Tuesday night's tense 2-1 victory over the Rangers when he permitted about a dozen newsmen into the Chicago dressing room. His parting shot was: "J.P. Bordeleau is our designated speaker." Ho, ho. A funny line. Bordeleau spent his evening cooling his skates at the end of the Hawks bench. He had no more to do with the outcome than ... er ... than Bobby Hull, who, by the way, is another sore spot with Reay. In Montreal the Canadiens squared their series with Phila-' delphia by defeating the Flyers 4-3 on a 50-foot slapshot by de- fenseman Larry Robinson at 6:45 of sudden death overtime. The writers dutifully chased after the Hawk heroes-- Stan Mikita, who scored the winning goal in the final period, and goaltender Tony Esposito, who blocked all but one of 38 ranger shots. No go. "I can't say anything," mumbled Esposito. "You have to talk to the coach. It's a league rule. I don't make the rules. I only work here." One or two of the Black Hawks, chuckling over the affair, did speak to newsmen and Reay caught one microphone going one-one-one with rookie defenseman Phil Russell. "I told you," shouted the coach, "Bordeleau is the designated speaker. No one else." And with that, Reay gave the newsman a rather inglorious exit from the dressing room.
