Off."* By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer" NEW YORK (UPI)-"It's a big mental strain on .me; It's impossible to drive the thing out of your mind. You're always thinking that at any time you might, not be here to play. I wanna play." Spencer Haywood, the Seattle Supersonics' storm center and traveling man, is doing the talking and the reason he talks this way could prove the backbone of an intriguing novel. All the elements are there. Poor boy leaves home at 12 and. leads his country to an Olympic Gold Medal a few years later. He goes to college at the University of Detroit but keeps thinking of his mother working in the fields of Mississippi all the time. He decides to dp something, about it so while, he's still in school he.signs with Denver of ' the ABA for a whopping $1.9- million which later turns out to Big Ten Race Tightens By ED SAINSBURY UPI Sports Writer . *JP!1 _ The Big- basketball race could, tighten up Saturday when the top six teams play each other with front • running Michigan risking its unbeaten mark on the court of the fourth-place Purdue Boilermakers. Second-place Ohio State will be at home against. thirdVplace Illinois in the afternoon television game and Indiana and Iowa, tied for fifth place, will meet on the Hawkeye court. Purdue, unbeatable in its new home court until this year when it lost two nonconference games and then fell Tuesday to Ohio State, could do the entire loop a favor by handing the wolverines their first conference loss. Although Michigan drubbed -the Boilermakers, 85-69, in their earlier meeting on the Wolverines' court, that defeat could furnish added incentive to the Boilermakers; .Purdue's new style of. play, which produced, a win over Indiana on the Hoosier floor, might be enough to trip Michigan.. Should Michigan win, it would almost make the Wolverines odds-on favorites to grab the title since' they would have only two road games left and five home games in the stretch. A defeat would give Ohio State a chance to tie for the. top with a win over the Illini, or would make it possible for Illinois to move into a deadlock by beating the Buckeyes and posting one more victory. Both Illinois and Ohio State have only" one conference loss. . A loss for Michigan also would put Purdue, ; Iowa and Indiana in position to contend since each has lost only twice. Any one of the three then could move. up should they trail the Wolverines by only one in the loss column. All other teams have lost four or more games. The Illinois at. Ohio State match has added importance since it is the only meeting this season between the- two teams. If Illinois is unable to win on a foreign court, it won't get the Buckeyes later at home to even up. The Iowa-Indiana game will display two of the top players in the league in Fred Brown of the Hawkeyes and sophomore George ' McGihnis .of Indiana. Brown scored 28 points against Wisconsin to become the league's top scorer with an average of 32.8 points per game. McGintiis'," held to 21 points by Purdue and 24 by Michigan State, slipped from first to second in the scoring race with a 30.2-point-per-gam'e average. However, McGinnis held onto his league lead in rebounds, though his average per game dropped to 16.8. In other Big Ten games Saturday, seventh-place Michigan State plays at Minnesota and eighth-place Wisconsin is at Northwestern. Minnesota and Northwestern are tied for last place, each with an 0-6 Big Ten record. be less than half that amount the jray Haywood and his attorney figure it out. . Haywood goes on to be named Rookie of the Year and MVP I during the one season he's in the ABA but after he reads | the fine print of that whopping six-year contract with the Rockets he tells them see- you-later and signs with Seattle of the NBA, which by the way has a four-year rule prohibiting the signing of players until their f college class graduates; Haywood's class hasn't yet. Otherj NBA clubowners then go to court seeking to restrain Mm from | playing with • Seattle because-of that A trial date of March 2 is set and that's part of the reason why the 21-year- old 6-foot-9 Haywood,complains about the strain he's under. Mississippi Family If Spencer Haywood is under any strain it's only because he helped put himself there. His motives were good and pure jwhen he sought to help his mother working in Mississippi— you can't blame any boy for that—but Haywood was looking but for himself at the same time ;and maybe he tried to do it a little too fast. . He wanted the money and he wanted it now and any good banker or attorney could tell him there is a charge for that- one way or another. Thinking back to his original signing with Denver, Haywood now jsays: "What happened at the time I was 'signing was that I was a minor and they had a cooked-up guardian .for me. I really ' BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana's track team, a 74-66 winner over Michigan last Saturday, takes a break from dual meet competition this week, but Coach Sam Bell will send nine individuals to Louisville to compete in Saturday's Mason-Dixon games. Representing the Hoosiers will be Gary Haupert and Dennis Adama in the high jump, Mike Goodrich and Larry Highbaugh in the 70-yard dash. Jack Keeler in the 70-yard high hurdles. Glen Close in the 600, Scott Riles and .Dan Hayes in the mile and Bob Winchell in the shot put Indiana's victory at Ann Arbor evened their season's record at 1-1, and it came after a week of frustration in which- many of the Hoosiers were unable to practice due to registration in the Old Fieldhouse. "Pm happy with the victory, because many of our performances were so much better than what we had at Nebraska," Bell said. "We got real good efforts from most of our people." Highlighting the victory was the school record-breaking performance of junior Steve Kelley in the two mile run. Kelley's time was 8:52.7, and he broke the 34-year old existing record that Don Lash set in 1937. Freshman Pat Mandera also broke Lash's old mark with a clocking of 8:55.5 and he finished second Kinsella Leads I.U. Swimmers BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (UPI) John Kinsella, Indiana's freshman swimming star, broke his own NCAA record in the 500- yard free style event Thursday and captured another first place to lead the Hoosiers to their 58th consecutive dual meet vie- tory, 69-42 over Southern Illinois. Kinsella's time of 4:31.8 clipped a half second from the record he set earlier this season. He also won the 200-yard individual medley to become the meet's only double winner. His time' in the medley was 1:58.5, fifth best NCAA time in the event this season. Another . IU freshman, Mike Stamm, won the 200-yard backstroke- inl: 52.8, which tied the NCAA record set last year by Mitch Ivey of Long Beach State, Calif. Gary Stamm turned in the season's 2nd fastest time in the' 1,000-uard free style for the Hoosiers at 9:28.0, bettered only by.Kinsella's 9:17.6, an NCAA record set earlier this season. trusted the people I was dealing with." The people Haywood dealt with were the Denver owners, Don Ringsby and his father, J. (Continued on page six) to Kelley. "Kelley and Mandera both ran excellent races for this time of the year," Bell said. "It was a lifetime best for both but they'll have to keep it up, because two boys have better times in the Conference." Also contributing to the Indiana victory were the points they garnered in the middle distances —a third in the 880, a first and second in the 1000, and a third in the mile—a far cry from, the 25-2 shellacking they suffered in those events at Nebraska. "Paul Olsen and Vera Jolgren (one-two in the 1000) improved tremendously and competed well," Bell added. "The difference in points in the middle- distance events won the meet for us."

(UPI)-Arnold Palmer still is. searching for his lost touch on the greens and be may find it today with a new putter in the third round of the marathon Bob Hope Desert Classic. ( The 41-year-old Palmer, who attributes his inability to win a. tourney title in 14 months to a "guessing game" putting touch, shot a bne-under 71 at windy and hot Tamarisk Country Club Thursday to : tie with Bob. Murphy, Bert Yancey^ and George Hixon ior the. second round lead. The former king of the fairways missed five birdie putts on 10 feet or less during the round and almost threw up his hands in disgust.
