The 49ers, just weaned from the college division and tbeir mark still to be made, enters with a 23-3 record. Many observers are calling the UCLA-Long Beach hassle the real championship game. Washington coach Tex Winter for one thinks the 49ers are tho real sleepers of the tourney. With their zone defense and their good running game, Winter says the 49ers are the team to watch. Sfag« Fright Tarkanian certainly is watching his team. He frankly admits he's worried about his.sijuad having stage fright in its first major tournament appearance "My wife asked me if I thought we could win," Tarkan- ian said at a news gathering Wednesday night. "I told her we could win by as many as three winls or lose by as much as 0. That's how wide the margin : »»r$ Blitz "It we don't get blitzed early, we can make it a real close ;ame. But UCLA has blitzed three-quarters of. the tems they've faced. "I don't know how good a team we have," he added, "but we're certainly going to find out." , ' Wooden doesn't have doubts about the 49ers. any UCLA Forward Only Unanimous Team Pick SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ~| Forward Sidney Wicks of Cham-' pion UCLA was the only unanimous choice for the all-conference basketball team selected by Pacific-8 coaches.

Sports Blotter King Baseball Eyes Coronation By JOHN MARTIN Chronicle Sporti Writer If there's one thing you'll hear more about than anything else in the next five months it's baseball. Count 'em: There are high school teams, slo-pitch, little league, Babe Ruth, junior league, rookie league, girls kague, college league, semi- pros, Ameican Legion, etc. Now multiply that by the number of towns in the area because it seems like they all have at least one of each. Ttiat adds up to a lot of diamond duels. Area prep wrestling has faded from the sccen* and only one area high school basketball club -- the Centralia Tigers -- are still hitting the practice boards. The; T i g e r s begin state action on the regional level at 9 pjn. Friday at Lacey against the Columbia River Chieftains. The' last scoring leader list was published about 10 days ago with Oakville's Dave Jelle the only still-active player "on the list. Jelle, who played for the Lewis County "B" League Champion Acorns and the state's sixth-^lace team, wound up his season with 672 points in 29 games for a 23.2 per game average. WWocWrased Ml. St Helens Cardinals hasting Onalaska. Like baseball, track and field season is nearly here. East Central "A" League initial meets are slated March 20 when Teriino and Eatonyille visit Yelm and March 23 when Rochester pairs off against the St. Martin's Bangers, ia Lacey. In the South Central "A" loop, Mr,' St. Helens goes to White Pass, Onalaska shows up at Morton and Toledo puts in an appearance at Mossyrock, all on April 3. Since every one eke is making proposals to the Baseball season has arrived at Mossyrock, if not in reality at least in picture. The bulletin board in the administration building features a mural of Casey At The B a t . . . complete wilh linescores. Baseball season for "A League schools is also drawing near. In the East Central loop, things get started April 3 whec Tenino visits Orting and Rochester travels to Charles Wright Academy, Tacoma. The S o u t h Central competition begins a tad earlier, March 31, with Toledo trekking to Morton, Mossyrock journeying to While . Pass at Handle, and the American League, we thought we might as well submit ours, too: Drain' Plummer Lake in Centralia and build a domed stadium therein. Send a professional baseball team there to play. In addition to all the local baseball support, the team would be within easy traveling d i s t a n c e of Seattle, Portland aid Yakima. The team could be called the Lewis Loggers. That makes about as much sense as any of the other proposals, doesn't it? Fishing season isn't too far off, either.
