Welcomes New Idol By FRED ROTH EN BERG AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Al- though Catfish Hunter has been welcomed to the big city with open arms, this country slicker from North Carolina is aware that some of those arms can go right for the wallet while others may reach for the throat "In 1965 1 was scared to go out of my room," Hunter said Wednesday during a whirlwind tour that included an appear- ance on a national television program, a photographic , ses- sion at Shea Stadium and inter- views with the press at a mid- town hotel. "Now, I'm scared to go into my room." Among other things. Hunter flew into New York, at the' Yankees expense, to introduce himself to the members of the press who didn't attend his New Years Eve contract-signing party. Hunter said he made up his mind to sign with the Yankees the night of 'Dec. 30. The next morning, Hunter told his wife that she would probably be a Yankee wife as he expected to sign a contract sometime that day to New York. "Give me a call," she said as he walked out the door. Bowling Standings By HAL BOCK AP Sports Writer NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Quarterback Ken Stabler of the Oakland Raiders was named the National Football League's Most Valuable Player for the 1974 season by The Associated Press today. Stabler, who earlier this week was named the Offensive Play- er of the Year, also heads the All-Pro team announced Wednesday. A left-hander who led the NFL with 25 touchdown passes during the regular season, Stabler was an easy winner in the AP poll of sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL. He received 36 of a pos- sible 78 votes, easily out- Gamecocks Escape Scare By Tech By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer When It comes to poise, you can't best Frank McGuire's boys. Under their famous coach, South Carolina's basketball players have usually displayed cool in the face of fire through the seasons. And Wednesday night, it was the same old story even with a young team. "South Carolina is a poised basketball team, no doubt about that," noted Virginia Tech Coach Don Devoe after losing an 81-77 decision. "They got themselves in a position to control the tempo. They were super at the free throw line. Overall, they played it smarter, got it where they wanted it and kept it there." The 16th-ranked Gamecodks lost a 10-point lead late in the game, but hung on persistently to win behind Jack Gilloon. In other games, fifth-ranked Maryland whipped Duke 83-77; No. 13 Marquette hammered Portland 87-57; Hth-ranked La- Salle turned back Memphis State 93-84 and No. 19 Provi- dence turned back St. Joseph's, Pa., 82-68. Gilloon hit a jumper with 1:27 left that broke a final tie, then added a driving layup that proved decisive as South Caro- lina beat Virginia Tech. beat Davidson 89-73. Elsewhere, Kent State trimmed Penn State 61-59; St. John's, N.Y., turned back Hof- stra 74-50; Washington i Jef- ferson beat Navy 5447; West Virginia defeated Massachu- setts 89-85; Pitt smashed Youngstown State 6*62 and Pan American beat Arkansas State 89-73. distancing Terry Metcalf of the St. I/ouis Cardinals, who was sscond with 10. Minnesota'? Chuck Foreman finished third with five. Stabler led the Raiders to the American Conference Western Division championship, com- pleting 57.4 per cent of his passes for 1,469 yards. Then he piloted Oakland past Miami in the opening round of the ppa- yoffs, eliminating the defending champions on a touchdown pass in the final minute of the game. A week later, the Raiders lost the AFC championship game to the Pittsburgh Steelers. A graduate of the University of Alabama where he learned his football under Bear Bryant, Stabler was the Raiders' second round draft selection in 1968. He was a reserve until 1973, starting only two games. In 1973, he won the Oakland quarterback job from Daryle I^monica, taking over in the season's third game and start- ing the last 11. Under Stabler, the Raiders were 9-2-1 that year and then 12-2 this season. Joining him in the All-Pro backfield are running backs Otis Armstrong of Denver and O.J. Simpson of Buffalo. Arm- strong was the NFL rushing champion with 1,407 yards and Simpson gained 1,125. Simpson, last year's MVP when he set an NFL rushing record with 2,003 yards, received just one MVP vote hhis season. The All-Pro wide receivers were Oakland's Cliff Branch and Drew Pearson of Dallas with Denver's Riley Odoms named at tight end. The rest of !he offensive line had tackles Ron Yary of Minnesota and Art Shell of Oakland, guards Larry Uttle of Miami and Gene Up- shaw of Oakland and center Jim Langer of Miami.

Claude Terry's three-point field goal for Denver with two seconds left tied the score 128- 128, then the Nuggets' Bobby Jones stole the inbounds pass and fired in the winning field goal, with one second to go. The incredible finish in- furiated San Antonio Coach Bob Bass. After a brief visit with the two game officials following the contest, he said he would file a protest with the league. · He said that because of the fans, players and coaches on the floor in front of the Denver bench after the tying basket was scored, "We were denied the lower one-third court of the court." Bass contended there still was one second remaining when the winning basket was scored.
