"I don'l know if we were out of shape or what, bul we jusl couldn't keep up with them," said Hudson afler the game. Keeping up was only parl of Ihe problem. Bigger still was Ihe fuel thai the Trojans couldn't keep hold of Ihe ball once they'd get il. Especially in Ibe second half. On the nighl, NCHS turned Ihc ball over 22 limes to Meadows Valley's 12. After intermission, il was 12-1, Trojans on lop. "We jusl couldn't seem to hang on to the ball; we were just throwing it away. We'd dribble il off our feet and all sorls of lliings," Rebounds were another hassle. Despite near even height slatislics. Meadows came off looking like giants in Ihe carom column, out-doing the Christians ffl-24. "They were really beating us on the defensive boards. We just weren't crashing in there the way weshouldhave lieen. We did out rebound them in I he early going, kit laler. we jusl didn't huslle in (here." The game moved evenly through the early going, bul NCHS pulled solidly ahead by halfiime wilh a 30-23 lead.

While Nicklaus shot a 69 and Miller carded a 72 Thursday, Ihe 35-year-old from El Paso, Tex., showed why he's won $200,000 in each of the past four seasons. He fired a flossy 66, five under par on the demanding Riviera Country Club layout, for a one- shot first-round lead in the $150,000 Glen Campbell Los Angeles Open. One of eight pros who have made $1 million on the tour, the two-time U.S. Open champion downplayed the much-publicized Miller-Nicklaus confrontation of 1975. "You're the ones who are building it up," he told reporters. "I don't have anything to do with it. Bul so many players on the lour are capable of winning. Really, there are a lot of guys to beat out here." Although he's never won in California and didn't plan lo be at Riviera, Trevino changed his mind last week and entered Ihe $150,000 tournament. Of Miller, who has won three events and $110,795 already this year, the smiling hombre from Texas offered, "It's a matter of confidence in his putting and short game. He's got a world of "onfidence in himself now." Trevino, who admitted he was "surprised more than anybody" at his 34-32 round in which he nit 17 greens, used a borrowed Cesar Sanudo putler and sank birdie pulls of 20.15.12,12. eight and two feel. He would have liad a G5 except for a bogey on his finishing hole, Ihe par four, 407- yard ninth. ' Tom Weiskopf, who didn'l win a tournamenl last year after capturing four in 1973, shot a 67 ' as did Tom Walson, Boh linger and Eti Sneed. "This is (he best round I've played for a long time," said Weiskopf. who has missed Ihe cul in three of five starts Ihis season. There was a seven-player logjam al 68, including defending champion Dave Stockton and 62-year-old Sam Snead. Also at three under after one round on the 7,028-yard course were former U.S. Amateur champion Craig Sladter, little Buddy Allin. Dale Douglass, Mark Hayes and Bill Rogers. "I 1 m just not playing well," said NicklauG, who eagled (he first hole, a par-five, 505-yarder with a drive, four iron and five- foot putt. "Praclice-wise, I'm ahead of last year but competition-wise I'm behind." Said Miller, who is meeting Nicklaus Iiead-(o-head for only the second time this year: "I'm just lired.
