Page 4 College Basketball "1 Jim McDaniels and his Western Kentucky teammates have been lying in wait for Jacksonville ever since last season's NCAA tournament The wait paid off on Wednesday night as Western Kentucky, ranked lltii, defeated thethird-ranked Dolphins 97-84. The victory left Western unbeaten in six games, and Jacksonville lost for the first time after five victories. In last season's NCAA Mideast Regional, Jacksonville eliminated the Hilltoppers in the semifinals. It was also somewhat of a personal triumph for the 7-foot McDaniels against Jacksonville's 7-2 Artis Gilmore. McDaniels poured in 46 points compared to Gilmore's 29, but GiImore\ had the edge in rebounding 18-11. First-ranked UCLA also remained unbeaten in six games by crushing St. Louis 79-65, but UCLA coach John Wooden wasn't satisfied. "This season we appear unable to get really fired up," he said. "It "isn't cockiness, but it might be overconfidence— subconsciously." ' ?. In other games Wednesday, Tennessee beat Oregon State 89-61, Fordham defeated Florida 72-65, Memphis crushed Missouri 108-86, Iowa beat Iowa State 87-68, Nebraska edged Wichita State 72-71, Northwestern beat Western Illinois 95-85 and Villanova defeated Shanford 96-76.

Now the dozens of post season bowl games tie down the big college performers. This gives a chance to some really good football players from the small colleges and the bowl runner up teams to show their stuff before a national television (ABC) audience and, more important, a big battery of pro team scouts. , Take little Jim Lindsey of Sweeny, Tex. Few outside of his Southwest small college circuit have heard of him and at 5-11, 185 pounds he's not on many pro scouting lists as a quarterback. But Lindsey has to have something on the ball, for in his college career he has amassed a total of 8,721 yards passing to shatter all offense records "on all college books. This season he averaged more than 300 yards per game while throwing for 25 touchdowns. Lindsey will play for the South All-Stars. On the North All-Stars bench is Lynn Dickey, who has been praised by many football players. He's the guy who set nine Big Eight conference passing records and led Kansas State to upset victories over Oklahoma and Missouri. But what about Ken Anderson of Augustana College in Illinois? His credentials are more impressive. In his career he has accounted for 6,333 yards and 50 touchdowns passing and has run for 22 more touchdowns. He also started kicking in his junior . year and accounted for 29 extra points and nine field goals. The scouts have their eyes on him. The heroics get underway at 4:30 p.m. Christmas Day. On the strength of some big and proven linemen from the Big 10 teams not going to the Rose Bowl, the North All-Stars are favored to capture their fifth victory in a row. The series now stands 11-10-1 in favor of the South. Louie Guenther has Great Grid Career Louis Guenther, former Tipton High School great in football, basketball, track and baseball has just completed four years of varsity football for the tough Hillsdale College team, Hillsdale, Michigan. Louis played offensive halfback on this years Hillsdale unit which finished the season with nine wins-and two losses in tough college competition, which included such opponents as Northern Michigan University, Wayne University, Ashland, Central Michigan, Northern Illinois, Eastern Kentucky and Manka- ta, Minnesota. Louie scored six touchdowns this season and picked up about 500 yards in addition to taking care of his offensive blocking assignments. He said he now wants to finish his major in education, try professional football and then become a teacher and coach. THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Brawl Leads to Player Arrests THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24,.I 070 ro Basketball NBA Blue-Gray Gridders Prep for Dec. 28 MONTGOMERY, Ala. (UPI) — Collegiate players from the North and South continued preparations today for the 33rd annual Blue-Gray football game on Dec. 28. North head coach Bob Bow- ~ den of West Virginia continued to alternate . his quarterbacks and indicated he would not name his starter before Sunday or Monday. He has his own Mike Sherwood and Boston College's Frank Harris to go against the Gray squad coached by Paul Dietzel of South Carolina. Dietzel said he would start Tommy Sugge, whom he brought with him from South Carolina. He said Suggs would start the first quarter and Bill Montgomery of Arkansas would start the second.

INDIANAPOLIS . ( U P I ) .Coach Al Bianchi of the Virginia Squires and two of his star players, 6-11 center John Eakins and 6-7 rookie ace Charlie Scott, were scheduled to go to court today as the aftermath of a brawl during an American Basketball Association game with the Indiana Pacers. Fists flew during their league game at the State Fairgrounds Coliseum Wednesday night, shortly after Pacer coach Bobby Leonard was ejeeied.He was assessed two technical fouls for complaining too vehemently decisions by referee Earl Strom.' The three Squires were released on -bond after being charged with assault and battery and resisting arrest. The brawl broke out near the end of the second period of a game which the Squires dominated virtually from the start, coasting to a 146-128 victory. After Leonard was bounced, Pacer center Mel Daniels and Mike Maloy of the Squires were involved in an argument, after Maloy tumbled to the floor. George Carter, who led. the winners with 32 points, stormed off the bench und was promptly called for a echnicai foul when he went to Maloy's aid. Players from both teams then emptied the benches. Police said several spectators poured from the stands onto the floor and joined the shoving, jostling players. HOT-TEMPERED MANAGER SAN. "JUAN, P.R.

Brown, who built a dynasty at Cleveland, takes his come- lately Cincinnati Bengas to an American Football Conference playoff game at Baltimore Saturday against the Colts. Brown, a man with a flair in the past for accomplishing the improbable, even admits he didn't expect to wind up .with any titles this year, but Baltimore rookie coach Don McCafferty, who played for Brown back in 1941 and 1942 at Ohio Etate, wasn't too surprised by the Bengals. 'We're Impressed' "Im trying to get my people alerted' to the situation," McCafferty explains, "because I know what the old master can do. He has a knack of getting people up for a big game. The Bengals are like a swarm of hornets. They're aggressive and have good speed. We're impressed by them." However, McCafferty has an old master of his own in the Baltimore lineup. His name is Johnny Uniae"be's pulled us through so many cliffhangers I can't remember them all," McCafferty said of Unitas. "He's played fine, dpne a good job." The Colts finished the regular season at 11-2-1, but eight of the victories were by eight points or less. The Bengals wound up at 8-6. Lions Have Respect In Saturday's other playoff game, the Detroit Lions face the Dallas Cowboys at the Cotton Bowl in a National Conference showdown. Lions coach Joe Schmidt, whose five-year plan . has matured a year early, says it is pretty hard to forget the last time Detroit played the Cowboys in the Cotton Bowl and scoffs at the idea of being the three-point favorite. Schmidt was in onlz bis second year as head coach of the Lions in 1968 when Detroit opened its regular season schedule in the Cotton Bowl and had to go with rookie Greg Landry at quarterback because of injuries to starter Bill Munson. Dallas won it 59-13. "We have a greatrespectfor the Dallas defense," he added, "which has a front four we rate right up there with Minnesota and Los Angeles. Our main problem will be the speed of Hayes (wide receiver Bob Hayes) and the running of Calvin Hill and Duane Thomas." NEW YORK (UPI) - San Francisco's John Brodie and Minnesota's Alan' Page, who will be colliding Sunday at Metropolitan Stadium in Minnesota, finished 1-2 in th balloting for the United Press International National Football Confer- ece "player of the year" in 1970. , Brodie became the fifth consecutive quarterback to win the award in voting by 36 sportswriters and broadcasters from the 13 NFCciUes.' The San Francisco quarter? back received 12 votes to seven for Page. Ten other players received one or two votes each 1 . San Francisco plays Minnesota Sunday in an NFC playoff game in which Brodie.will be trying to pass over the rush of the Minnesota front four paced by Page. Brodie led the Forty-Niners to their first division title in the 25 i year history of the franchise when he threw • three touchdown passes in the regular season finale against Oakland last SUnday to nail down the crown. 'The performance climaxed the best season of Brodie's career— he hit on 223 passes for 378 yards, 59 per cent, had only 10 passes intercepted and gained an average of 7,9 yards per pass. NEW YORK (UPIV-Marlin . the Magician has turned from an also-ran passer to the leading pass receiver in the American Football Conference. Marlin Briscoe, who broke, into pro football as a quarter- (Continued on page six) Sport's Parade (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By MILTON RICH MAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)— No, I don't care to bet, so don't call me, I'll call you, but I keep seeing Cincinnati in the' Super Bowl. For that to ever happen the Bengals are gooing to have to beat Baltimore Saturday and I can see them doing that all right, even though the Colts have Johnny Unitas and Earl Morrall going for them along With the odds in their own backyard. I also see San Francisco upsetting Minnesota, Detroit developing into another disappointment for Dallas and Oakland taking care of Miami. Maybe now you're busting to know how Cincinnati makes out in the Super Bowl? 1 have to break down and admit I can't see that far. Winning Strategies The one thing you can count on is Cincinnati coming into Saturday's game well-coached. Paul Brown is the same kind of perfectionist with his players that Rembrandt was with his oils and I get a kick out of the way he compares his present Bengals with his old champion Cleveland Browns. The only way San Francisco is going to beat Minnesota on toe Vikings* home ice is with short passes. Besides, the Forty-Niners have the best possible man for those short tosses. John Brodie. Talk to the guys whose job it is to defend against his passes sometime. You know how on a you can see forever? On one of John Brodie's good days it seems like you're getting beat forever. They Make The Difference As far as the Detroit Lions are concerned they believe Saturday's ball game with Dallas amounts to their entire season? I've always been a Tom Landry man and still am, but I've seen Dallas pull up short too often and Craig Morton, still hasn't made a believer out of me. That's why I'm going with the Lions. Which brings me to toe three reasons I like Oakland over Miami Sunday—linebacker Dan Connors, defensive tackle Tom Keating and defensive back Dave Grayson. Even more than Daryle' Lamonica and George Blanda, they generally determine whether Oakland wins or loses. One more thing." All four of these tremendous predictions could wind up tremendously wrong. But don't bet and don't fret because the place I'd like most to be right is here where I wish you all toe happiest holiday ever—and a little peace and quiet wouldn't hurt either—no matter which teim wins or loses.
