Larry Johnson, a 6' foot-2 inch guard and two-year letterman, banged away mostly outside Baytown's defensive perimeter for 28 points while his team mate, Charles Kirkland, fired exclusively from the flanks for another 18. The 23-point margin the Trojans piled up in the final quarter made up Baytown's woi-st defeat in six conference starts. It was also the first time the Trojans have beaten Baytown in the three-year history of the school. The Ganders had nobody in the double figures and South Houston concentrated all but 8 points of its scoring in the two guards. Roger Byers, sophomore base line post, and Robert Oliver, a sophomore flanker, each had 7 points. Ellis Smith, another flanker, hit 6 points for next high honors. Baytown was troubled by inaccuracy most of the distance, and ost a 7-6 lead early in the first period to the hot-shooting Tro- ians who had pulled into a 15-11 lead after the first eight minutes. The Ganders' most troublesome stretch was that second period when they picked up only points while Johnson and Kirk,and wore banging away for 18. But the Ganders weren't the only ones with offensive troubles, and the Trojans sweated out a 4- point third period while Baytown was hitting 12 points to close the ap to 37-27 at the end of three quarters, the closest Baytown managed after the first quarter. Touth Houston took the tip-off th;;t opened the fourth period and scored first but Baytown clung within range for the first three Bcry-7ex Roundup Ships Pad Lead, Ball Smiley Grab Upsets Brayiosport 65.

And the once - placid district cage race, with only Pasadena and Brazosport in the running, was taking on the aspects of being rarely exciting down around the middle. Brazosport took a cliffhanger from challenging Pasadena in the last 50 seconds Friday night to extend to two full games the Exporter lead of the conference, and with that padded margin, to make Flash Walker's senior quintet an even stronger favorite for the title. But after that 65-63 victory was in the books, the rest of the eight- team field looked anything .but predictable. Ball High, upset by Baytown Tuesday, turned the tables on Texas City. 44-42. after the Stingarees had upset Pasadena Tuesday night, also. And at Galena Park, Smiley's upstart Eagles broke up tilt; YeliOw JciCktru bid. 40-31. Half of last week's eight games wound up in upsets and only two favorites won Friday night: Brazosport, a very slim favorite over Pasadena, and South Houston over Baytown. The loss by the Ganders dropped them back on the bottom of the standings by virtue of point spread while second place remained a deadlock between Pasadena and Texas City and third place was a toss-up between Ball High and Galena Park. Mike Prince goaled for Brazos- port with 50 seconds left in the game to knot the score at 63-63 after Pasadena, paced by Jeff Ford's 21 points, had led all the way. Then, with 9 seconds on the clock, Greg Canavan scored from the field for the 65-63 win. Brazosport hauled down 39 rebounds, and Canavan got 21 of those while scoring 11 points. Robert Walker and Glen Carroll each hit 13. Ronnie Pruitt sank 12 and Freddy Beene hit 10.

The Ganders hit 58 per cent of heir free throws, sinking 11 of 19, and South Houston dropped eight of 14 for 57 per cent. Baytown had little luck with its press which the Ganders instituted rom the start. It proved to be sluggish and Baytown never got a score off it. Gander coach Jay BoIIingrr called it off just before the half and didn't revert to it again until the fourth quarter. The Ganders failed to pull the Trojans out of the 2-1-2 zone when most of their shots fell away from he basket.

The 36-hote finals will b* played Sunday. while playing for college teams. Rudolph countered that he had authorized his league's attorney to file a $1 million suit against Rozelle on Monday in U.S. District Court in Nev; York. The suit will accuse Rozelle of defaming the morals and standards of the EBL, Rudolph asserted Lipscomb was to have made his professional basketball debut in Baltimore tonight against Williamsport. The game was canceled because of a snowstorm. He has been wrestling professionally during the off-season. The EBL, an eight-team "minor league," has sent 11 players up to the National Basketball Asso- Team ciation in the last few years, said Rudolph. He said this to show that the NBA, the "major league" of basketball, had not felt it would be contaminated. A spokesman for the Baltimore Bullets said: "We know the fans are for us and we hope he (Rozelle) is somehow aware of their feelings. Perhaps he will reconsider and correct what we believe to be a most regrettable injustice." The Colts had agreed to let Lipscomb play for the Bullets. "These boys," said Rudolph, "have paid their penalties and the public has accepted them. They have proven to be true gentlemen and outstanding basketball players. Larger crimes have been committed and the criminals welcomed back to society. "We have long felt that our allowing these boys to play in our | league served as a good source! in rehabilitation.

But the Eagles got only 18 rebounds. Brazosport got 21 of its 65 points from the free throw line, while Pasadena scored only 11 points from charity. Probably the biggest upset was at Galena Park where Smiley, loser of five straight, put Roland Brewer and Bruce Engrain in the double figures for a 9-point margin on the Yellow Jackets. Brewer hit 10 points and Engram banged in 14 while Brewer, Gus Hinze and Engrain were the Eagles' top re- bounders. Brewer got seven, Hinze five and Engram, four. Donald Fain hit 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds, and George Fuller hit 11 points and dragged in five rebounds to pace the Jackets. But only four others scored and the highest among them was Gary Campbell's four points. Smiley, meanwhile, had Jimmy Ashford with 8 and Hinze with 4. Ball High, smarting from its upset in Baytown Tuesday, closed the gap on Texas City in the final minutes and won the game in the last four seconds c Texas City, minus the services of regular Don Cummings, had a sophomore, David Blanton, going most of the game; but probably the most damaging blow came when Bill Ivey fouled out early in the second half. Ivey got only 2 points before he left the court and without that punch Texas City was badly hurt Ball closed to a 38-42 tally with 3:55 left in the fame, got it to 4042. then tied it up when Walter Syers hit a pair of free throws with a little more than a minute remaining.

Syers hit 14 points and Walter McReynolds notched 10 for the Tors, while Charles Holmsten hit 11 and Tommy Bell sank 9 points for the Stings. THE STANDEfflS H L ft*. Off. Stra.

Jay hawks, BYU Are Victors- K-State, Utah Felled Oy MIKE BATHET Associated Press Sports Writer College basketball's road trap has snared Kansas State and Utah. The lOth-ranked Wildcats, latest member of the elite to try bucking the home court advantage, carried a 10-game winning streak and an earlier victory over Kansas into the Jayhawks' lair Friday night for a showdown for top spot in the Big Eight Conference. Kansas won 75-66. The Utes, led by Billy (The Hill) McGill, invaded Provo, Utah for a Skyline Conference game against Brigham won 91-86. Young. BYU Cincinnati's Bearcats won their eighth in succession by rapping host Drake 86-64 in a Missouri Valley Conference game, and Memphis State rolled to its 30th straight home triumph with a 70-60 victory over Murray State. In another Skyline game, Utah State edged Montana 58-57 on two foulshots by Cornell Green with eight seconds left. Idaho State whipped Western (Colo.) State 8353.

Elsewhere Oregon defeated Washington State 60-53, Oregon Ohio edged Western Kentucky 8077, Syracuse whipped Alfred 79-67 and Seatle nipped Gonzaga 86-84 despite a 37-point scoring performance by Frank Burgess, the major college scoring leader. At Lawrence, Kan., Bill Bridges, Kansas' rebounding ace, turned scorer and dropped in 24 points as the slow-starting Jayhawks (10-5) methodically cut down an early eight-point lead built by Kansas State (11-3) and took over first place in the Big Eight with a 4-1 record. The Wildcats are 2-1. Cedric Price paced the early K- State surge but Kansas, with Bridges, Nolen Ellison and Wayne Hightower hitting, pulled ahead 39-37 at the half and widened its margin in the second session. Price wound up the top scorer with 28 points while Hightower gave Bridges support with 17. BYU, trailing 67-54 with 15 minutes left, rolled back on the accurate firing of Dave Eastis and Gary Earnest to overtake Utah (10-5) with Eastis getting the go- ahead basket when McGill was charged with goaltending. The Cougars (S-8) rallied as Eastis and Earnest, scoring 32 and 26 points, respectively, whittled the Utah lead to 84-S3 with 3% minutes to go. Eastis then tossed one up and McGill, outstanding throughout the game with a 32-point performance, was State beat Idaho 67-52, Xavier ofcharged with goaltending and Utah dropped behind Colorado State in the Skyline race.
