Mako, who should have been a senior, said he was unable to register during the usual time last spring because of some outstanding bills at the school. "I tried to register this fall instead of last spring, but when I went in to register, they told me it was too late," Mako said "I kind of panicked. I got into a trap and didn't know what to do." Mako went about his daily routine during the quarter just as though he were attending classes. He lived in his regular quarters at the university and kept the secret within him. Athletic Director Bill Edwards said he felt sorry for the coaches and players. "They worked so hard and then, had this happen," Edwards said. "But I guess we can live through it."

Stillwagon, a two-time All- America, was an easy winner in a balloting of 192 sportswriters and sportscasters from across the nation. The muscular 6-foot, 210-pound native of Mount Vernon, Ohio, received 44 votes to 24 for runnerup Larry Dinardo, an offensive guard from Notre Dame. Thirty-six players in all received votes, one of the highest figures in the history of the balloting.

"I'm just happy and appreciative at receiving this award," said Stillwagon. "My feeling is that if you do something, do it the best you can. I just tried my best and it paid off, I guess. I try hot to think about what honors I might get. Coach (Woody) Hayes says that anything you work hard to get you appreciate more. I owe ail my honors to the coaches and the guys I played with." Other players receiving at least five votes were defensive tackle Rock Perdoni of Georgia (Continued on page nine) By United Press International It's always nice when the Cleveland Cavaliers come to town. It gives their opponent a chance to relax. The New York Knicks beat Cleveland, 110 - 92, Tuesday night. The victory moved New York 3Vz games ahead of idle Boston, in the Atlantic Division, and Cleveland's record dropped to 2-32. "It's difficult to motivate yourself for a game like this," complained Walt Frazier, who led New York with 25 points. "Just when you try to get something going, they slow you down by calling a time out or by committing a foul. It was like a practice session, but not one of our real rough ones." Cleveland Coach Bill Fitch moaned, "We play bad basketball in spurts. Still, if I was watching this Cleveland team on television I couldn't imagine how anybody who plays as well as we do could lose as many games." ! • However, two other division leaders —Baltimore in the Central and Los Angeles in the Pacific —found hostile receptions waiting for them on the road. Substitute George Wilson tossed in a desperation shot with one second left in overtime to give the Buffalo Braves a 113-111 victory over Los Angeles. Wilson's shot capped a Buffalo rally that overcame a seven-point deficit with little more than a minute left in overtime. Bog Love scored 37 points and Chet Walker added 34 to lead Chicago to its fifth straight win as the Bulls beat Baltimore, 115-97. In other games Tuesday night, Dave Bing got 31 points to become the second highest career scorer in Detroit history and lead the Pistons to a 111103 victory over Portland; Philadelphia crushed San Diego, 122-98, and San Francisco beat Phoenix, 129-123 to move the Warriors to within a half- game of Los Angeles.
