Indiana Triumphs BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (UPI) — Indiana, took the lead for good on a five-point play and [posted a 75-65 Big Ten hasketball win over Michipan State Monday night, keeping the Hoo,slers in the thick of the conference race with an 8-3 record. With the score tied at 15-15, Indiana's Steve Downing was fouled as his field poal try was counted on a goal-tending call. Spartan Coach Gus Ganakas was hit with two technical fouls for disputing the call. Downing hit the free throw to complete his three-point play and John Ritter made both technical foul tosses for a 20-15 Indiana lead. Downing finished with IS points and John Laskowski ndsed IS. Michigan State was topped by Bill Gilgore's 21 points and Mike Robinson's 20. Ohio State Wins COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI) Wardell Jackson scored 26 ix)ints and Luke VVitte added 24 to lead Ohio State to a convincing 102-79 Big Ten victory over Purdue Monday night. The loss was the third in 10 conference games for the Boilermakers, now 14-6 overall, while Ohio State evened its Big ten mark at 5-5 and moved to 1 11-9 overall. PYank Kendrick, Purdue's ieadins scorer wilh 31 points, was the only Boilermaker to score more than two points in the first half, getting 16. Allan Hornyak, Ohio State's leading scorer on the season, was held to two points in Ihe first half, but finished tiie game with 16. Dennis Gamauf was the only other Purdue player in double figures with 11. Minnesota Victor CHAMPAIGN, 111. (UPI) — Olympic star Jim Brewer and teammate Ron Behagen rallied the Minnesota Gopliers from a halftime deficit Monday night to produce a S2-T.] victory over Illinois to talve over first place in the Big Ten basketball race. It was the first loss at home for Illinois this sea.son after eiglit straiglit wins and Minnesota's first victoi-y on the mini court since Feb. 27, '1901, when the Gopliers earned an 8576 decision. It also was Minnesota's sixth straight win. The rriiimph gave the No. 4 ranked Gophers a 7-2 Big Ten record for a .778 percentage compared to 8-3 for Indiana and .727, Purdue toppled from the league lead to a 7-3 record and .700 in losing to Ohio State [Monday. Brewer netted 20 points and Behagen 24 as the Gophers wiped out Illinois' .^1-0 halftime lead in the first 2:12 of the second half. Both also participated in Minne.sota's domination of the boards which gave them the chance to come from behind. Nick Weathorspoon, the Big Ten's second leading scorer, was Illinois' leader with 2,'^ points, 17 of them in the second half, while Jeff Dawson had 22. . quarter of the game for an 83-72 triumph. After the 0-W game, Jackson agreed that his Commodores, the nation's No. 2-ranked team, i had played just as hard as they I had to. "I couldn't get it across to them that if we lost, we would be in danger of losing out in the division," he said. "I just hope this team is following the same pattern as our ] two," added Jackson. Com» modore teams ot the last two years have struggled along at the end of the sea.son, losing one or two they should have won, then they were world beaters in winning state tournaments. "I think our player.s are just waiting for the state tournament," said Jackson, whose team went on to finish third in the national junior college tournament last year at Hutchinson, Kan. The state tournament is coming up March 1-3 at West Palm Beach. The Commodores secured their fourth successive Division One title Saturday night with lack luster win over Okaloosa- Walton, but tonight's game means e\'erything in the world to the visitors from Pensacola. If the Pirates of Coach Rich Daly can knock off the Commodores on their home floor, they will gain a second-place tie with Chipola of Marianna. And the two teams would have to meet in a playoff for the second berth in the state meet. Gulf Coast is unbeaten at home this season while losing two games on neutral courts — 91-89 in overtime to Pensacola in the early-season Tipotf tourney and to State Fair of Missouri in the finals of the Crowder Classic at Neosho, Mo. The other loss was at Chipola. The Pirates rode that early- season win over Gulf Coast to the nation's No. 1 ranking. They started out 12-0 before losing in succession to league foes Chipola, Gulf Coast (by 86-73 at Pensacola) and North Florida. Since they have rebounded for a 21-3 ledger, but have slipped to 14th in the national poll. Gulf Coast, which was ranked fifth before the January trip to Pensacola, is now second behind Wright of Chicago with a 22-3 record. The Commodores close out regular-season play with two road games Friday and Saturday into Georgia — Dalton and Brewton-Parker. "All the pressure is on Pensacola in this one,' said Jackson, "because they are in a do-or-die situation if they want to get a shot at going to the state tourna- itient. They have got to win. All the game means to us is the prestige. "I don't know how all this will have an effect on the game," added the Commodore coach, "but North Florida came in here last week with the pressure on them and they played their best game of the year (losing by 112-110 after leading much of the way). "But I think our players will play with a lot of pride," continued Jackson, "since we have a lot of sophomores who will be playing their last game before the home fans. I'm sure they will want to go out with a success. Tliey have had two great years here at Gulf Coast." The Commodores went .32-5 last year and returning sophomores include Morris Rivers, Johnny Williams, Barry Scroggins, Joe Johnson, Mariel Rogers, Dennis Hanson and David Ruggles. Another sophomore is transfer Cal Stamp. GC's only freshmen include Mike Dickerson, Amos Davis and Randy Douvier. Rogers is not listed as a starter after being reinstated on the team, but Jackson expects him to play quite a bit. Without Rogers, who was dismissed a couple of weeks ago because of disciplinary reasons, the Commodores would not have had the depth that played such an Im- iwtant role in the previous win over Pensacola. Jackson named Rivers and Williams at the guard spots, Stamp at center and Johnson and Dickerson at forwards. Dickerson is the top scorer with a 17.5 average compared to 16.0 for Rivers, 14.5 for Rogers, 13.4 for Johnson, 11.0 for Stamp, 10.9 for Williams and 9.7 for Scroggins. The 6-9 Stamp and the leaping 6-5 Johnson are averaging 15 and 13.8 rebounds, respectively, while Rivers has piled up 218 assists. Daly, who coached at tradition-rich Moberly, Mo., before taking over at PJC this season, recruited five standout freshmen and he has gone with thcin all season —- 6-8 Ed Davis of Morristown, Tenn., 6-7 Joe Reccord of Qeveland, O., 6-5 Otis Dunn ot Chicago, 111., 6-3 Levan Anderson of Providence, R. I., and 6-2 Gary Stephens of Pittsburgh, Pa. Anderson was a high school All-America, Reccord won the Ohio state high jump, Dunn was all-city, Stevens was voted the most valuable ^ prep player in Pittsburgh and Davis was All- State. Da\'is has been the point leader all season with a 22-point average and he is the state 's top field goal shooter with an almost unbelieveable 75 per cent while shooting mostly inside and from 12 feet out. But all the other Pirates are well into double figures and 6-10 Ed Callahan, another freshman from Cleveland, Tenn, also can score. He hit five in a ro>v from the outside in the win over GC. Vikings Top Bay, 68-62 FORT WALTON BEACH-Hitting 18 of 21 free throws, Fort Walton Beach Vikings scored a 68-61 victory over Bay Highs Tornadoes Monday night in a regular-season basketball finale. Bay got only five free throw chances, hitting two. The Tornadoes, who go into the district tournament Thursday night at Tallahassee, were left 6-15 compared to 12-10 for the Vikings Ron Enclade, a husky junior maneuvered inside to lead Fort Walton with 19 points while Skip Littlefield added 14 and Bill McClean 13. Harry Gainer, a junior guard who leads Bay in scoring, did it again with 22 points while Donnie Alford and Willie Taylor contributed 14 and 11 points, respectively. Bay trailed by 17-12 at the end of the first quarter and 35-32 at the half before managing just 10 points in the third quarter. The Tornado jayvees were a Nets Wollop Chops UNIONDALE, N.Y. (UPI) Bill Paultz and John Roche combined for 50 points to lead the New York Nets to a 128-99 American Basketball Association victory over the Dallas Chaps Monday afternoon. Despite the victory, the Nets found themselves with a serious injury problem in (he back- court. In the second period, with three minutes and three seconds left to play, Brian Taylor fell on his hand and broke or dislocated his third and fourth fingers. The injury, combined with Bill Melchionni's recurring ankle problems that have seen him miss more than half the Nets' games this year, could create problems for New York in its bid for a playoff berth. BARRY SCROGGINS, GULF COAST VETERAN 63-48 winner being the scoring of Bill Kohler, Wilbert Faison and Bobby Williams with 16, 16 and 12 points, respectively.

The Wildcats, hiking their record to 23-1, used a couple of 10-2 spurts in the second and third quarters to tumble the Rams, 69-50. Rutherford would up regular- season jilay with an 11-12 mark. The Rai-ns go into the district tournament' Thursday night at Tallahassee. Blountslown Topples Bristol Cardinals Want Brad Van Pelt NEW YORK (UPI) _ No^os, quotes and anecdotes: The St. Louis Cardinals, who blithely traded away baseball's best pitcher last year when they became annoyed at his salary demands, aren't about to let a little cold cash stand in their way of getting Brad VanPelt's signature on a contract. "We're prepared to meet any monetary competition and I think be knows that," general manager Bing Devine of tlie Cardinals says. VanPelt is an unusually fine three-sport athlete from Michigan State, who is supposed to have the credentials to make it in either football or baseball on a major league level. The Cardinals have to bid for him against the New York Giants, who selected him on the second round of the pro football draft. But Devine doesn't think money will make the difference. "I doubt it'll come down to money," Devine says, "I think the real decision is going to be his. It'll be simply a matter of which sport he wants to play. Our indications are that he's not competely certain which sport he is going to turn to." The Cardinals lost Stex-e Carlton to tlie Phillies last year when owner Gussie Busch became enraged at his salary demands and ordered him traded. Carlton promptly won 27 games and the Cy Young award. Busch, who was annoyed last year when he felt the rest ot the owners didn't take a strong enough stand during the players' strike, has stepped back from such close involvement in the workings of the team. He's also loosened the purse sti'ings and Devine was the first GM to sign all his players tliis year. But even without this change, Devine said the Cardinals would have bid for VanPelt since he's a free agent. "Even before there was an indication of a change in policy, we weren't restricted in the area of free agents," Devine says. VanPelt, who quit the Spartan basketball team last week to concentrate on the baseball season, still gives no indication which way he leans. He led the Big Ten in strikeouts as a pitcher last season and was an Ail-American as a safety in football although the Giants want him as a linebacker. VanPelt does give one clue that favors the Giants. "My wife likes football over baseball," he admits. But he quickly adds, "But if I choose baseball and make a good living at it, I'm sure she'll be satisfied." Maybe Gussie Busch will make him an offer he can't refuse. Bill Walton of UCLA. The Jersey Giants—now the Dallas Chaps—of the ABA have until April 10th to persuade him to pass up his senior year or they lose draft rights to him. The NBA lets players apply for its so-called "hardship draft" until March 30th. But UCLA insiders say that Walton will return for his senior year as long as coach BLOUNTSTOWN — Running their record to 18-4, Blounts- towns Tigers romped over Bris- i tol, 64-37, Monday night. The Tigers jumped off to a 20-10 first- quarter lead. Amos Milton and Ernest Caster led the winners with 21 and 17. points, respectively, while Anthony Hardy was high for Bristol with 12 points. It was I'2-10 Washington at the end of the first quarter before the hosts piled up 21-11 and 19-14 spreads in the next two periods. Ike Mims, a 6-6 senior, topped the winners with 16 points while Russell Pwilley led Rutherford with 17 points. The 6-1 senior is averaging 20-plus. Swilley had eight rebounds and sophomore Bill Shields six for the Rams and Rick Brigger was cited for mi.\ing it up on defense with the taller Wildcats.
