Patient Crimson Tide wins fifth game in row By BEN THOMAS AP Sports Writer You've heard of patience and fortitude, no doubt. That's not quite the credo of the Alabama basketball team.

In the only other Monday night games involving ranked teams, Kentucky blasted Kansas 100 - 63, and No. 19 Oregon overwhelmed Villanova 116 - 77. Kentucky, 17th in the new poll, was 20th last week and Kansas, out of the rankings this week, was 18th. "They're a mighty fine basketball team," said Devoe of Alabama. "They did a super job pounding the offensive boards and they played with patience and control. We just never got in position to dictate the tempo." The Tide, led by the inside scoring and rebounding of Leon Douglas, took the lead early in the first half and held off the defending National Invitation Tournament champion Gobblers Kentucky's tenacious defense and Kevin Grevey's 29 points led the Wildcats to their walloping of Kansas. Kentucky jumped immediately to a 4 - 0 lead and never trailed. Kansas cut the Kentucky lead to five points with 3:18 left in the first half but steals by Larry Johnson and Jack Givens produced several quick baskets for the Wildcats, who led 42 - 29 at the half. By The Associated Press Central Michigan football Coach Roy Kramer said he expected some recognition after winning the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics' championship.

Miami won 21 - 10. Central Michigan, 12 - 1, received 32 first - place votes in balloting of sports writers and broadcasters for a total of 658 points after beating Delaware 54 - 14 in the NAIA championship. Second in the final poll a l li l was Louisiana Tech, 10 - 1, with IOOtDall ranking 477 points but not a single msi - piace vuie. 'That victory plus this recognition really caps off a great season for us," he said. "I'm particularly pleased because I think the poll at the end of the season is the one that really means something. The others come and go and they're hard to keep up with, but the one at the end of the season is the one that's important." Rounding out the top five were Texas A&I, 13 - 0, with 461 points and two first - place votes, Delaware, 12 - 2, 460 points, and Boise State, 10 - 2, 401 points. 1495 A78 - 13 TUBELESS BLACKWALL PLUS 1.78 F.E.T.
