The 6-foot-8 junior is the tallest player on the Weber squad and is third in scoring for the Wildcats with a 14.2 average while leading in rebounds at 11.5. Weber challenges the sixth-ranked University of Texas at El Paso Miners at 12:30 p.m. Saturday in a regionally televised game at Memorial Gym. Slate Earlier Start For Miners' TV Tilt One serious hurdle exams has been cleared and now another Weber State looms for the Texas Miners who swing back into action Saturday after an 11-day layoff. Tipoff time Saturday is 12:30 p.m. In the 10 a.m. prelim, the Miner yearlings tangle with New Mexico Military. Although Saturday's game will be a regionally televised affair, the El Paso area will be blacked-out. Carr Leads Crosbv Golf Meet PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) Unheralded, unattached and unsponsored, Joe Carr surprised the big name golfers Thursday by touring the Cypress Point course in four-under-par 68 and grabbing the first-round lead in Bing Crosby's $104,500 pro- amateur tournament. The 28-y e a r -o 1 d Carr, from Worcester, Mass., and winner of only $50 in official money for Cage Scores The Saturday game originally was scheduled for 1 p.m. but was advanced one-half hour to avoid conflict with the American Football League All-Star game. Weber State roars into Memo rial Gym with an impressive 12-2 mark which includes a startling 86-72 success over always-potent Seattle earlier this week at Og-den. i Although Coach Don Haskins is out of town, the Miners went back to the practice area Wednesday under the . supervi sion of assistant coach Jerry Hale, who reported it was one of the team's best efforts. "The rest appears to have helped," Hale reported. "They appear to have more spring and more desire." From the way the Weber State Wildcats have been operating this season the Miners will need the extra spring when the action starts. ' Like the Miners, the . Wildcats are a strong board team, averag ing 54.6 caroms. The Miners, on the other hand, average 48 ri cochets but have played one less game. The Miners hit the half-way point of their season with an 11-2 record and both losses, strangely enough, have occurred on their home boards. Both Weber State defeats were suffered pa the road, 62-57 at Arizona. and 79-63 at Montana State. Saturday's game promises to be a study of a well-balanced and high scoring offense opposing a defense which is tougher than leather spaghetti. . The Min ers rank third in the nation in de fense. The Wildcats like to run and gun, throwing up 1,034 shots while averaging 89.5 points per game. The Miners, on the other hand, have allowed their-13 oppo nents to shoot only 685 times while giving up an average of 57.8 points. Guard Greg Harrop is Weber State's top gun, averaging 16.9 points. He scored 35 when the Wildcats shot down Pepperdme, 104-96, and tallied 27 to lead his iteam to a luo-95 victory over Carlsbad Leads EP Wrestling Carlsbad took the lead in the first day's matches Thursday in the El Paso Invitational Wrestling Tournament with 25 points, while Irvin's Rockets and Las Cruces High School, followed with 23.

Nicklaus posted his three- under par 69 at Pebble Beach, the monster of the three courses which the Crosby competitors must play prior to Sunday's finals in the 72-hole event. Carr putted in a 40-footer to open his round and then carded five other birdies with only a pair of bogeys in calm, sunny warm weather on the picturesque Monterey Peninsula. FIVE AT 70 . Five golfers deadlocked at 70, four of those scores shot at Spy glass Hill, the new and treacherous layout with holes named for Treasure Island lore. Jerry P i 1 1 m a n, Jack Burke Jr., New Zealand's Bobby Charles and Jim Colbert of Kansas City, Kan., had the 70's at Spyglass Hill.
