Manager Bill Hunter said he'll monitor Moret's workouts for the next two weeks, but said he's willing to reactivate Moret once he's convinced everything has returned to normal. Dr. Armando Desaloms, Moret's psychiatrist, said it will probably be a week to 10 days before Moret is released from the hospital. Moret has been running and throwing on hospital grounds to remain in shape. SIDING' ALUMINUM STttl VINYl ALUMINUM Pl ACfMENT STORM WINDOWS SCREENS AWNINGS. Bullard Siding Co., Inc.

Bayuk hit Mark Renfro in the end zone from 13 yards out two plays later for the tying touchdown. Allen Roberts, second-team quarterback for the Purple squad, engineered the winning scoring drive. Roberts, a starting defensive back last season as a freshman, got the drive going with a 17-yard keeper from his 41. A personal foul stifled the drive, but Roberts passed 22 yards to Brad Bowen. A personal foul against the Whites gave Jacot, a walkon, the position he needed for his win- ning field goal midway through the last quart . The Purple team had a 254-183 edge in total yardage.

(UPI) -Halfback Billy Sims scored two touchdowns Saturday to go with a 69-yard touchdown pass by J.C. Watts and a 24-yard scoring run by fullback Kenny King in a 28-21 Oklahoma varsity victory over the Sooner alumni. Sims' second touchdown, a 5-yard dash in the fourth quarter following a 35-yard run by Watts, proved to be the win-ningTD. King slanted off tackle untouched for the varsity's first score on the first play after starting quarterback Thomas Lott, nearly sacked for a long loss, scrambled for a 36-yard gain. Sims broke free for an 8-yard touchdown moments Later, after Jay Jimerson recovered a fumble by old grad Gregg Pruitt, now with the Cleveland Browns. Watts, whose first pass of the afternoon was intercepted, uncorked the 69-yard touchdown throw to Steve Rhodes on his second effort. The extra point kick attempt following King's touchdown failed but the varsity made up for it with a two-point conversion pass from Watts to halfback Forest Dealora after the final touchdown. Sims won the Bud Wilkinson Award as the game's outstanding back, and noseguard Reggie Kinlaw won the Corner Jones Award as the outstanding lineman. With the varsity regulars playing infrequently, the alumni took a 21-20 halftone lead on two touchdown runs of 2-yards each by Tim Welch and a 23-yard pass from Ron Fletcher to Pruitt, Pruitt caught passes of 41 and 10 yards in that drive before his touchdown eaten and finished the day win five catches for 87 yards. The alumni had 18 first downs, compared to 14 for the varsity. The old grads out-passed the varsity 141 yards to 91, but trailed 148 to 256 yards in rushing. The game was played before a sun-baked crowd of 15,300 in a somewhat casual atmosphere. The old grads were given enough time outs to compensate for the age differential and the officials appeared to be less than severe on calling procedure infractions against them. Coach Barry Switzer said it was a "fun game" and he was pulling for the alumni all the way. Switzer said he was pleased With the wrap-up of spring practice, although the varsity did not get to accomplish some of the things in the game that they would under regular game conditions. Milwaukee Hoping To Even Playoff Series With Nuggets MILWAUKEE (UPI) - The Milwaukee Bucks sold 4,200 tickets Saturday for a, game many local fans never expected to see, the sixth in Milwaukee's best-of-seven NBA playoff series against Denver. Down 3-1 to the Nuggets and never having won a game in Denver, the Bucks bounced back for their second win, 117-112, Friday night and now will play host for the sixth game Sunday at the Milwaukee Arena. The Bucks, who made the playoffs on the final day of the regular seasonwere down by 10 points in the final quarter Friday night and one more loss would have eliminated them from the Western Conference semifinals. But with rookie sensation Marques Johnson and guard Brian Winters leading the way, Milwaukee outscored Denver 15-4 during a five-minte span for the win. "I think it was just a question of us not giving up," said Johnson, who scored a game-high 34 points, including 12 in the final period. "We could very easily, being down three to one, have said, 'Hey, it's over, let's go home for the summer.' "But we hung in there. I just had the feeling emotionally that if we played hard and just really tried and gutted it out, that things would fall our way." Milwaukee Coach Don Nelson agreed.
