Pa-pumps in two points while his cific's Larry Jackson (25) Colton Falls to Bishop Amat in By RYAN REES Sun-Telegram Sports Writer Bishop Amat of La Puente methodically took apart Colton last night by a score of 80 to 60 to advance into the second round of the CIF Class AAA basketball playoffs. Using a three-pronged attack, the visiting Lancers rallied from an early 13-4 deficit to pull ahead midway through the first quarter and race to the run away victory. In the first half, Steve Caropino shot the nets out of the basket with 25 points. In the third quarter, Mike McLean went to work inside to score most of his 22 points and then in the final period, Trio Tied MIAMI (UPI) Georgian Tommy Aaron, the "bridesmaid of the PGA" who has often finished high but never won in eight years on the pro golf tour, picked up three strokes on two holes yesterday to tie Tom Shaw and Elroy Hirsch Takes Job As U. of Wisconsin AD MILWAUKEE, Wis. (UPI) - Elroy Hirsch made it official yesterday by accepting the job of University of Wisconsin athletic director and pledging a "crash program to turn this thing around again." Hirsch, a native of Wausau, Wis., and still a legend in this area after only one season of football at Wisconsin in 1942, was officially introduced in his new capacity at a news conference. It had beon expected that Hirsch, 45, would take the job since last week. At that time, he hinted broadly that he would leave his job as an executive with the Los Angeles Rams to return to the UW. But he said he wanted a few days to talk it over with his family and Rams owner Dan Reeves. Hirsch was the only candidate interviewed for the post. Hirsch received a $30,000 year, 5-year contract. In addition, he is assured of employment with the university for five years after that either as athletic director or in a "mutually agreeable role." He succeeds the late Ivan B. (Ivy) Williamson, who was fired Jan. 10 after 13 years because of a decline in the football program and a financial crisis in the athletic department. The football team hasn't won a game in two years and last had a wining season in 19G3. Hirsch had been an overwhelming hoice of Bn.d'cy alumni and fans for the job, but he said he hadn't come to ' win any popularity content." "I'm not f.iTiiliar with the entire personnel setup in the athletic department, but I'll pledge you this we'll go into everybody's records extensively. 1 probably will be known as a bad guy for a while, but we want absolutely the top people here " Hirsch said he plans to waste no time trying to rrjuvcns'e the football pro t:tfjpfm u ' " - Vv . Or -"i Mike McManus took over and scored 10 points to ice the victory for Bishop Amat. Colton hit its first seven shots of the game to take the early lead, but then began a disastrous trend of turnovers and unnecessary fouls that cost the ball game. Richard Koeller and Rich Dauer were the main spark plugs for the Yellow-jackets with Ed Martinez pulling in key rebounds at the start of the game. However, after the opening splurge, the Jackets fell apart as the taller and quicker Lancers began their attack. Bishop Amat began controlling both back boards and when Colton went cold for Doral Open Lead Dan Sike for the second round lead in the $150,000 Doral Open. Aaron, with an eagle on his 10th hole and a birdie on the next, shot 68 to tie Shaw and Sikes, who had 70s, at 9-under-par 135. He had a chance to take the gram, where recruiting has lagged in the wake of the losing seasons and the periodic campus disruptions, which many feel have given the UW a bad image. "I'm going to recruit personally," he said. "I'll meet with head football coach John Coatta today to discuss his needs. We have ocly until March 15th when the football tenders go out " Hirsch said he would also meet today in Madison with Tim Healy. the ali-state quarterback from Madison East High School, to try to persuade him to become a Badger. He will return to California later in the day to attend to parsonal business and Sloped to set up his new job within two weeks.

However, the biggest factor in the Colton loss was the mistakes caused by the Yellowjackets. Repeated turnovers gave Bishop Amat the ball time after time and after the Lancers moved ahead 59-46 late in the third quarter, the Yellowjackets appeared to give up completely and stood by as the race-horse Lancers ran up and down the court, scoring almost at will. Dauer played an exceptional game for the Jackets on defense. He was the lone hustler on defense and chipped in key baskets in the early going, but later on lead alone on his final hole but his birdie putt hung on the lip of the cup. It was the third straight round in the 60s here for Aaron who won Wednesday's pro-am with a 67 and matched that in Thursday's opening round. The exuberant young Shaw, who plays out of Golf, 111., and the veteran Sikes, a Jacksonville, Fla., attorney becoming known as the "Chicken Baron" because he owns a string of fried chicken drive-ins, were early finishers Friday and, although their rounds were five strokes higher than on opening day, withstood all challenges until Aaron, who was 32 last Saturday, came in late in the day. Veteran Bill Collins, who only plays part-time on the tour, shot a 67140 to stand one stroke behind the tri-leaders Stockton Vails to Make Cut at Doral MIAMI Dave Stockton of San Bernardino missed the cut by one stroke as he fired a 77 yesterday for a two-round total of 147 in the Doral Open. Stockton fired a 38 on the front nine of the par 72 "Blue Monster" course yesterday and carded a 39 on the back nine. The IBM computer showed that in 36 iioles, Stockton had six birdies, 22 pars, seven bogeys and one double bogey on the par-3, 183-yard 15th hole yesterday.

Coach Jim Hackleman's double-barreled pns, Doug Howard and Scott Kay, shot Pacific into a 24-10 lead at the quarter that expanded to 42-23 at the half and 59-38 after three periods, before the Pirate mentor mercifully cleared the bench.

Kay also led in rebounds with 18, Howard added 15 and Larry (Lew) Lockridge had 9 rebounds with 5 steals. Howard, who had been out with a touch of tonsilitis, heroically played most of the game, sinking a sensational 13 of 14 at the line to go with 5 of 13 fielders for 23 points two points under his season average. Pacific hit a scorching .483 from the floor, on 29 of 60 while the San Gabriel Valley League runnerup Chiefs were 27 of 64 (.422).

"I've got a reputation for my second-place finishes, but I haven't been that high for quite awhile," the dark, bespectacled Aaron said. Actually, Aaron is best known at the moment for the wrong score he wrote down on playing partner Roberto de Vicenzo's card in last year's Masters. Aaron two years ago at this same tournament held two stroke lead going into the final round and soared to a 75 on the final day and finished tied for fifth three strokes behind eventual winner, Doug Sanders.
