Pete Maravich is the all-time leader with a 44.2 point-per- game average while a star at Louisiana State, and Oscar Robertson is second currently with a three-year mark of 33.8, compiled while at the University of Cincinnati.- C arr has a three-year average of 33.5 points.

Brodie, the 14-year veteran, has been tabbed to guide the National Football Conference all-stars against Lamonica, who will pilot, the American Conference team. It's an oddity of the game that players whose home bases are a few miles apart on opposite sides of San Francisco Bay should be picked to guide rival conference teams. Brodie and Lamonica opposed each-other just a month ago in the final regular season game. With Oakland having clinched its division in the AFC and San Francisco needing a win to gain its divisional crown, the incenr tive was all with the Forty- Niners, who scored a 38-7 win; College Basketball Don Johnson In Fourth LAS VEGAS (UPI)-A pair of perfect games and continued torrid shooting by Barry Asher, Costa Mesa, Calif., marked Thursday night's fourth round of the $77,777 Showboat Invitational bowling tournament. One 1 of the perfect games was rolled by° Don McCune, Minister, Ind., who finished in 25th pface and failed to make the semifinals.. The other was' by Asher, who has led since the tourney began Wednesday. Don Johnson of Akron, Ohio, formerly of Kokomo, Ind., was in fourth place. Johnson, winner of 11 Professional Bowling Association crowns including the 1970 Tournament'of Champions in which he won $25,000* had 5,423 pins, 183 off Asher's pace. Indiana's still-learning basketball team, knocked out of its firstplace Big Ten tie by the stunning but not totally unex-: peeled 92-81 loss to Michigan, will have more than two weeks to ponder on what happened at Ann Arbor before returning to the court wars. The Hoosiers will be closed down for' semester finals until Feb. 1 when they return to action here against non-Conference Northern Illinois. Conference competition reopens Feb. 6 when Purdue visits I.U. for'the season's single meeting of this classic rivalry. The Boilermakers are also undergoing finals, stopping with a 3 -6 Conference mark and a share of the lead, but will get back r upwithiT Tdtiedouf idling? ^ you need a motsturevent anew and unique humidifier > humidifies effectively • vaporizes Oust add the agent to the water") • deodorizes Oust add the deodorant to the water') • filters {extra relief for the allergic) • deflects air away from walls and drapes] fits any standard floor register easy to Install 3 quart •j water capacity- easy to fill maintenance free filters easy to replace replacement filters available sooner witn a Feb. 2 game at Michigan. Coach Lou Watson will not attempt any organized practice this week, although squad members will be working out on their own as exam schedules permit. Saturday's loss stung but it doesn't read off the Hoosiers as challengers. ' , ; "There are too many line teams in the league for an undefeated champion,'-* said Watson. "Certainly it makes our job tougher, and it would have been a good feeling to end the semester at 3-0 and with two road victories. But we didn't ' and the thing we must do now is learn something from that loss.". One factor obviously lacking was offensive punch from the guards. Guards totaled only seven points, not including that portion of the eight points John Ritter scored while at guard. Without Ritter's attempts, the guards ventured only 13. shots. Inside the Hoosiers were their I usual mighty selves, George McGinnis tossing in 37 points and snaring 23 rebounds and Joby Wright adding 25 points. Thus far, McGinnis is averaging 35.3 points per Conference game and 21.7 rebounds. But the Wolverines gave Indiana a lot on the outside and the Hoosiers' failure to take advantage of it had a lot to do with the result. . Indiana's emphasis on going to the inside on the strength cf McGinnis and Wright, along with Steve Downing, jammed up the middle excessively and permitted Michigan to rebound, with its concentrated defense, on more even terms than any previous opponent, 54-49. for the Hoosiers. "We've been preaching to go inside to George and Joby," Wat- 1 son said, "but we went overboard on it this game." Added to the problems was a .363 shooting performance, lowest of the year, and Michigan's top performance of the season and the result was never in serious doubt. "We just got beat, there's no two ways about it," Watson commented. "We were never really in the game and judging Michigan from that game, it's the best team we've played. If they play that well the rest of the way they have to be considered one of the very top.contenders." Trie Hoosiers get another chance at the Wolverines at Bloomington on Feb. 23. UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Half the lies they tell about Yogi Berra aren't true. So many stories have been told about him that by now it's nearly impossible to separate the fact from the fiction. Berra hardly bothers anymore. One of the leading fictions about the natively sharp 45: year-old Mets coach and former Yankee . catcher is that he's dumb. Everybody should be so . dumb. ... '. Another piece of fiction about him is that every other word out of his mouth is a malapropism. ..That's nonsense ralso because Yogi usually talks- better than a lot of those who have gone to the so-called higher halls of learning; Still another fiction about him is that he's so cool he can manufacture fresh ice cubes in . his veins every five minutes. One Nervous Occasion That isn't, any more true than those other fables about him because there are times Yogi Berra gets nervous just like everybody ' else • whether they' happen to be astronauts, heart surgeons or even world heavyweight boxing champions. Yogi remembers one time he was nervous. Very nervous. It did not happen to be Thursday, when he was at home in Montclair, N. J., waiting to hear whether he had been elected to baseball's Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America, The time he was so nervous was back in 1947 when he was returning to his hometown of St. Louis with the Yankees and all his friends were giving him a "night" at old Sportsman's Park. Yogi was nervous because he didn't know what he .should say when it came time for him to speak into the mike. Remember this was his first full season with the Yanks. , Compton & Indiana Son, Inc. 202-206 E. Jefferson 675-2133 JANUARY SPECIAL Atlas Tires 25% Off Henrys Standard 103 S.

' , * 'That's not the way I gave it to you," he said to Berra later. "I know, I know/' Yogi admitted. "I loused it up because I was so nervous." '•• • Unruffled Loser On Thursday Yogi Berra, appearing.on the ballot for the first time since his retirement five years ago, fell only 28 votes ; shy of being elected to the Hall of Fame. He needed 270 - votes but drew 242., It was an excellent showing but not good enough. Only Stan Musial, Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson and Bob Feller had made it on the first try. Early. Wynn was runnerup to Berra with 240 votes and Ralph Kiner was third with 212. . Yogi took the news with equanimity. '{''''• "Well, whaddya gonna do?" he said. "I come close. The first ballot is always rough. Joe' Dimaggio didn't make it the first time either. I'm a little bit disappointed; but there's-always next year; You gotta remember it's a hard! thing to get into." Early Wynn was more disappointed than Berra;, "I thought I. had a good chance one time but I don't know : now," he said. "I ain't gonna jump off a building." Ralph Kiner felt worse for his mother in Alhambra, Calif., than he did for himself. "She's 87 and she was hoping very hard for me. She'll really be disappointed," he said. Pacers Sprint By Rockets, Lead ABA West Over Stars DENVER (UPI)— The Indiana Pacers recovered from an eight-point deficit at the inter- missioa to defeat the Denver Rockets 118-106 and stretch their lead to one game over Utah in the western division of the American Basketball Association Thursday night. The Rockets hit 60 per cent • from the field to 52.7 per cent for Indiana. But the Pacers made up in quantity what they lacked in percentages, taking 99 field goal tries to 76 for Den• ver. • A 52-40 rebounding edge for Indiana and 21 Rocket errors contrasted with 15 for Indiana helped give the Pacers the extra shots. Mel Daniels had a game high 26 points for Indiana and 15 rebounds. Julian Hammond had 24 points for Denver. Other Pacer scoring was well balanced, with * Roger Brown getting" 23 points, Billy Keller 18, Art Becker 19 and Bob Netolicky 14. It's all-star time for the American Basketball Association and the Denver Rockets and the Floridians can only hope a few days off will help improve'matters. The Floridians, last in the Eastern Division, and the Rockets, tied for the cellar spot in the West, both lost again Thursday night in the only two games prior to Saturday's ABA. The Lelia F.
