Still, Gardner manages to spread gloom. Partly because , of. .another .

"We don't have much bench, period. He's working out and the doctors are withholding a decision on an operation, but if he has any further- trouble with it, we'll operate for sure. "What looked like a very good year for Jack Gardner and Utah may not be after all. I'd say Ken is the key." ·· , Another Utah regular, guard Bob Martin,, also, was. injured in a.car aocident, .biit Gardner thinks the 5-fqot-lC il-1- poinls-per-game San Diego boy will be/ready to play. Regardless of Gardner's ultimate situation, Utah's overall picture will "be f a r - f r o m gloomy.

The Redskins aver^ aged 83.6 points per game last season and allowed, yep, you guessed it, 83.6 points per game. JS'ANGELES '(AP)' -^ "In. the pos^Alcindor. era j.UCLA-returns tojtfie pre^Alcindor era. '·'Joqach. John Wooden of the U£ns outlined" the outlook - of his£club, national champions in fivfepf the past six years, in a piling lot interview yesterday. ,$juUiern California basketball writers had. been smoked out of Strength Davis, Lesley Both Doubtful Tucson High's'strength could be weakened for tomorrow night's Interdivisional AAA football game against two-time defending , state champion St. Mary's of Phoenix. Kickoff time is 7:30 p.m. at the University of Arizona. ' ' The Badgers strength is the running game,- However, the status of all-city halfback Cornell Lesley and fullback Barrel Davis is up in the air, Lesley bruised his knee in last week's 18-6 win over Salpointe in the Southern AAA championship game. Davis sat out the game because of a leg injury. Lesley andT)ayis have combined for 1,837 yards rushing and 137 points with the former gaining 1,201 yards and scoring 83 points. "We won't know if they'll be ready until after practice today," said~~THS coach Ollie Mayfield. "We also don't know about our kickoff man." Place- kicker Larry Willis also missed the Salpointe game with a leg injury. St. Mary's, the No. 1-ranked team in the final wire service polls, and Tucson, the No. 2 team in the Associated Press poll and No. 5 in the United Press International''Power 'Index, are both 10-0. ' The last time 'St. Mary's lost in post-season action was in 196« when the Badgers clobbered Ed Doherty's Knights, 34-0, en'route to the state championship. bteve Heads Finale Steve Clifton was the big win ner in the final night of drag racing at Tucson Dragway Sun day. Clifton drove, his Chevy II .to the street eliminator title. Other final night winners: Mr Stock -- Joe Antonelli; Showroom Stock -- Skip'Dupris; Top Stock -- Keith Nichols; Top Bike -- Buddy Novak; Special Giris'' Competition -- Terry Antonelli. ' Mary Blythe scored a ( hole-in- one yesterday using a five-wood on'.Oro Valley's 150-yard,No. 4. Her' playing i partners were Bonnie,Tisci and Sherry Starr, - , r * }* * Dick Apperson,shot a net 137 to win the,'President's 1 Cup at Skyline Counbry.Club Sunday. Dpn Mau'was second with 138. BUI Aipmon' was third with 143 and Dr Harry .Fontenova was foujtli \vith^3.' their first'meeting of the season when a grease fire-in the kitchen of a hotel forced evacuation. Wooden said the Bruins', game this season will b e . more like that of the'1964 and 1965 championship years than during the Ihree seas.ons when 7-foot 2-inch L,ew Alcindor set the pace. · "We're going to have a good team," Wooden declared. "We're going back to the high post offense where we had a low jost while Lewis was playing with us. "I know the'high post. offense' better and feel we have'a good man for that offense in' Steve Patterson. We'll use a man-to-' man defense and press a, lot. 'We probably won't press as much as in 1964 and 1965 because we aren't that 1 qiiick. We'll use a tighter defense'be- cause we won't be trying to" drive opponents into Alcindor." Wooden admitted, .the .switch from the offense keyed, to three-time All-American Alcindor poses problems for players who've known nothing else in their collegiate careers. · ."But I'm not displeased with our progress," he declared. ."We might even be a better .breaking team, or perhaps I should say just as good as those of 1964-65." - The Bruins open at home against highly-regarded Arizona nextMonday. . As of now, the Bruins will line up with the 6-9 Patterson at center,, letlerman Curtis Eowe, ^, and Sidney Wicks, 6-8, at forwards, NCAA tournament star John Vallely at one guard and sophomore Henry Bibby at the other. .Bibby, from .Franklinton, N. G., led the frosh team last year with an average of 26.8 points ·per ganie. Andy Hill, who teamed with Bibby at the guard position for the Brubabes, should see a lot of action. Wooden's squad , put the coaches words into practice last night. Fast-breaking ^and pressing much of the way,.'the five starters raced to a 103-83 victory over the : reserves .in : an in- trasquad game which attracted more than 4,500 spectators. · Howe, with 24 points, and Patterson, with 23; topped the starting five. Wicks and Vallely leach hit for 16 points and Bibby put in eight while ! HUl showed why he may get a lot of playing time, scoring 20 for the reserves. ' As of now, tiie number one re placement in the backeourt would be lettermen Terry Schofield with John Ecker, another junior, as the first substitute in the front court.

Defending champion Mike Ryan of the Air Force Academy, who came on with a closing rush, was second in 29:01 with freshman Steve. Prefontaine of Oregon third in 29:12.

Pueblo, on the other hand, had five runners, cross at 23nl ,or better with three men eightt^or above. Those two'schools, along with the three other qualifiers ( from last week/Rincon, Sahuaro and Palo Verde, may get some unexpectedly powerful opponents.
