14 GREELEY (Colt.) TRIBUNE Sil.M.reh«, mi Bulldogs beat Brush, 67-66 RyTOMBAHBOUH UHS, a 3S-35 loser to Weld For its effort, University get! Tribune Sports Writer Central in the finals of the to journey down the highway Welco Assn. tournament last for all the «Ute tournament week, did the one point victory marbles next week, trick itself Friday night with a "We just did our thing," an 67-66 nallbiter over Nor- elated Bulldog coach Jim Smith theastern League champ crowed in the locktrroom after BRUSH - From Greeley to Denver by way of Brush doesn't sound like the ideal route, but for the University High Bulldogs, it will do just fine. Brush UHS ran its season record to 302. "Our thing" was a running, gunning style that broke Brush's pressing efforts and constantly had the Beetdiggers trying to erase University High leads. The hectic pace all over the floor, which Smith expected, caused numerous turnovers by both clubs, something else the Bulldog coach expected, to keep the packed house on the edge of its seats all night long. But UHS never abandoned Its plans -- never even considered it, according to Smith - despite some hairy moments in the final quarter. "We kept coming back when we made the mistakes and forced them to make the mistakes," Smith said. "We just did what we had to do." The clubs battled to a 13-all standoff in Die opening quarter, but University High's Dennis Jelden took control in the second quarter and led the Bulldogs to a 34-31 halfttnie lead. Jelden scored 12 of University's 21 second-quarter points, Including late quarter baskets to erase a 31-30 Brush lead. But Brush battled back in the third period to lead by as much as three before two Jelden baskets with steal and assist help by Steve Finken pushed the Bulldogs to 48-47 advantage going into the final eight minutes. The first three minutes of the final period were all University as the Bulldogs ran up a 59-49 lead. At that point, it appeared the Bulldogs were packing their bags for Denver and next Thursday's opening Class AA tournament round a little early. Quicker than you can say "take State," University's ID- point lead was a 59-55 lead. Brush chipped six points off the advantage in 58 seconds of playing time as the turnover bugaboo hit the Bulldogs. Smith quickly called time and "changed to a different press to control the middle of the floor" with the result being a 66-57 lead after a Larry Sage three- point play with 2:55. But Brush wasn't through and the Beetdiggers narrowed the score to what was eventually the final count with 39 left.. Stall, right? Wrong! "We had to keep doing our thing," Smith said. "We couldn't abandon our game and let them force mistakes on our part." So the Bulldogs continued the go get em style, finally forcing a jump ball with one second left. Delmar Brewer tipped the ball clear of everyone and it rolled harmlessly across the final second ticked away. As usual, Sage was the big gunner in the Bulldog attack with 20 points, while hero Jelden was right behind with 18. "Dennis has had some good and some bad games lately,"Smith said. "But tonight he really did it for us." The win for the Bulldogs completes the cycle of the season most fittingly since it was the Leroy Needens coached team which handed University High its first loss this year, 59-52. Bulldog fans watched their team then roll up 19 straight wins before the title loss to Weld Central in the tournament. Last year, University beat Wray in the district playoff, but two years ago, the Bulldogs were a one-point loser to the Beetdiggers in a playoff bid in Brush. The lead in Friday's contest changed 20 times before University pulled ahead for good. Leading the efforts for Brush were Ron Schilling, a 6-6 junior, who scored 19 points, and Rick Miller, the team's scoring leader during the season, who scored 14 points. Chris Needens, the coach's son, had 12.

Rozcllc, after meeting with the players for nearly three hours, said there could be no winner if the current situation continues. "The key is not in the courts or a public relations battle," he said. "The key is to come up with something with which both sides can live." Rozelle said the owners must have a contract to. generate income and the players should receive the benefits they deserve. "Both sides are receiving pressure." Ire said. "The owners and players are getting more and more tired of the strife we've had on the labor front." Rozelle described the meeting--the opening session of the five-day meeting of the player representatives and alternates from the 26 teams--as one in which "I gave some of my views and I heard some of theirs." The commissioner said he planned to tell the owners at their meeting in San Diego on March 15 what had transpired during his sessions with the union, the first time he has met with the player representatives in two years. He said he did not plan to play a major role in the negotiations "unless I believe I can be helpful and make a contribution." He said during the past two years chief federal mediator W.J. Usery, now secretary of labor, had been involved and "was unable to do anything." He also repeated earlier comments that another reason for his noninvolyement was that the commissioner's office was a strong issue in the negotiations. "If the time comes and I felt I could help, I wili be of assistance." he said * Rebels down Yuma for state berth halftime, had one of his highest scoring outputs as he and Holden carried the load scoring-wise for their respective teams.

(AP Wirephoto) Dorofhy Hamill KEENESBURG - Coach Larry Hicks and the Rebel basketball squad will be representing Weld Central at the state Class AA basketball tournament for the first time.

Holden scored 12 buckets and was too per cent from the line also, completing two of two. Weld Central used the same type of offense that the Rebels used to defeat University High to capture the Welco league crown. The Rebels took time to set up the shot and the strategy paid off again. As a team, the Rebels were 60 per cent from the floor, sinking 24 for 40 shots. Weld Central's deliberate style of offense caused the Indians to commit costly turnovers. Weld Central also did the job on freethrows, mostly on one- and one situations. The Rebels completed 15 of 17, while Yuma only had five of seven. Weld Central, which outscored its opponent every quarter, took a 29-22 lead into the third quarter. The Rebels led by an 11 point margin once and the closest Yuma ever came was within five points. Junior Brian Wall was Weld Central's (op rebounder with eight rebounds, followed by Steve Linnebur with six and Thurtell with four. Thurtell also had five steals of the total IS for the Rebels. Four of the Rebel starters will end their last season as part of Weld Central's first team to compete at the state level. Thurtell, Linnebur, Gene Eisenbarth and Anthony Marquez are seniors, while Wall is a junior. Eisenbarth was Weld Central's othei scorer in double figures with 14 points, For Yuma, Holden and Ed Barry were in double figures. Barry had 10 points. Berfhoud, IVefd Centra/ girls to play for IrVe/co cage title GOTEBORG, Sweden AP) -- 'lympic Figure skating queen '·orothy Hamill took a clear sad in the world champion- ·hips Friday after the short imgiiiiu uad vtiis uii llm verge ·f returning the women's world rown to the United Slates for he first time in eight years. Hours later, Colleen O'Connor ind Jim Millns repeated their Olympic performance and earned a bronze medal in ice iancing. The Colorado Springs, Colo., couple finished behind two Soviet teams, Ludmilla Pakho- nova and Alexander Gorshkov ind Irina Moiseeva and Andrei Minenkov. The order of finish was the same as in the Winter Olympics at Innsbruck, where ice dancing was contested for the 'irst time. The gold medalists led all the ,vay in establishing their supe- ·iority, and in the final free lance they received almost unheard of perfect 6.0 marks from seven of the nint judges for their fourth world title. A crowd of 12,000 in the Scan- jinavium Arena witnessed the elegant Moscow couple's nearly perfect performance. They were voted No. 1 by all nine judges for 9.0 ordinals and 211.52 points. Their compatriots had 19 ordinals and 205.44 points while Miss O'Connor and Millns had 28 ordinals and 202.92 points. The 19-year-old Miss Hamill, of Riverside, Conn., who admitted later that she was "terribly nervous" when she went onto the ice, managed to shed the stage fright that often plagues her and skated a spectacular short program which vaulted her into a commanding lead over Dianne de Leeuw and Isabel de Navarre going into Saturday's freeskating finale. Miss Hamill had 14.5 ordinals, the decisive factors in the nine-judge panel. Miss de Leeuw, the defending world champion who lives in Los Angeles but skates for The Netherlands, and Miss de Navarre each had 21.5 ordinals. But Miss de Leeuw had more second-place votes from the judges than her West German opponent and thus was cast as the runner-up. Miss de Leeuw also was runner-up in the Olympics. Miss de l/NC Eleven swimming records fell by the wayside during the 1975-76 University of Northern Colorado season in the team's first year in Butler-Hancock Pool. The Bears, who finished with a 4-5 dual meet record and second place in (he Intermountain Swimming League, bested previous school marks in all but eight of the events for which records are kept. Terry Dick and Walter Teele ied UNC's assaull on lne record book. Each set three marks himself, and each was a member of two record-setting relay teams. Dirk sfl records in the 200-. MKK and l.foO-yard freeslyles while Teele established new marks in (he 200-yard in- dividual medley and the too and 200 butterfly events. Both swam on the record- setting 400 and 800 freestyle relay teams. Other Bears who set records included freshman Kent Christensen, who broke older brother Hal's 100-yard freestyle mark. The younger Christensen also swam on both pace-setting relay teams. Erik Grotness, who set a new standard in the 1,000 freestyle, was (he fourth man on the 800 freestyle relay team, while Don Donahoo rounded out the 400 freestyle relay squad. Dave Estey broke the 100 hreastslroke record, and Steve Rudner rounded out the effort with a new high in three-meter diving.
