"I don't think that anyone| played really well in terms of, what we have done this year. Defensively the team did a tremendous job against them but «e made errors on offense. "I think that the whole thing goes to the four steals, thats eight points, and then if we had gotten some decent foul shooting. The boys want to win this one tonight." Fulmer stated.

Smith, a 5-11 guard, was joined by team-mate Dave Mohs who was selected for the NAIA second team. Mohs comes from Beverly Hills, Calif., and has formed a dangerous duo at guard with Smith all year. Smith will lead Redlands into the second game of the District No. 3 play-offs against Cal- westem, tonight. During the past season, Gary has averaged 14.15 points per game, and is one of t h e key reasons why Redlands is rated 11th in the nation for defense. With tremendous reflexes and a sharp eye. Smith is Redlands' best outside shooter. Gary's 368 points for the season constitute exactly 23 per cent of UR's total 1600 points. In three year's of varsity play, Smith has gathered 1023 points, an average of 341 per season. In his SCIAC season finale against Whittier, Smith had one of the best nights of this year. Tallying 22 points, nearly 40 per cent of the team's out-put. Mohs, has been the steadiest player on the team. Averaging 11.04 points per game, Dave is the team's third highest scorer, falling in line behind Smith and Bob Engberg. Another expert outside shooter, Mohs' rapid reflexes help, along with Smith, to foil opponents' scoring drives. Mohs' consistancy is seen in looking at his three year rcc ord. In 1961-62, Mohs averaged 10.8 points per game. For the 1962-63 season, he had an 11.4 average and tliis season, Mohs has a steady 11.04 average. UR coach Lee Fulmer rates Mohs as a great rebounder for his size (6-0). Mohs and Smith were also chosen on the All-SCIAC first team. This was the third time Smith has been on the SCIAC first squad.

Big smile on Luro's face today By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer HIALEAH. Fla. (UPI)-Hora tio Luro, the dapper and charm ing senor of horse highway, has a smile on his face today and a frown in his heart The trainer from South Amer ica is taking bows because I Northern Dancer, a colt he trains for Canadian industrial ist Edward P. Taylor, ran off and hid to win the Flamingo [Stakes. It earned $89,830 to boost its total earnings to $181,165. But for the good senor things I could be so much better as he looks ahead to a Kentucky Derby in which he might have had a paralyzing one-two [punch. Out in California there is a jcolt named Hill Rise which is the western counterpart of [Northern Dancer. This haybum- er has won five stakes and seven outings in a row. The good senor could have [had both colts in his stable. Two years back, Laro trained Decidedly for Caljfomian George Pope and with the colt won the Kentucky Derby. Last spring he visited Pope and the breeder suggested that he pick out a two-year-old to take back East and train. Luro selected one but, when it arrived, he inspected it and in his South American accent intoned that "ziss one is not zuh one I peeckad." Back it went, all the way to California. And, you guessed it, the one he sent back was Hill Rise. There is some consolation in the fact that Northern Dancer has to be regarded as one of the lop Derby prospects, even though some people — say like WilUe Shoemaker who rode him —still won't label him solid gold. A chunky little horse, the Canadian-bred colt never has been out of the money in 11 starts. He has won eight, including Tuesday's closing feature at Hialeah, the first eastern, classic leading up to the Derby. He also had finished second twice and third once. Shoemaker, who immediately flew back to California to ride at Santa Anita — where Hill Rise is quartered — wouldn't commit himself completely. "I think he'll be a Derby con-' tender," said Willie the Shoe, who won the Kentucky canter in 1955 and 1959. "He'd have a chance against Hill Rise but I don't know yet whether I'll ride him." Luro is "stuck" with Northem Dancer, no matter who eventually rides the colt. That's because he made a mistake by sending his chief rival back to California early last year. But. the good senor isn't too worried. They asked him, before he ran a horse in the Derby one year, if he was going to work the colt on Sunday. Heavens, no," retorted the good senior with horror. "Sunday is for loving." How he would have loved the Sunday after this Kentucky • Derby if he'd kept both of these babies in his bam.
