Hope ^ star SPORTS — » ^^^ ^^ ^^ w i Hayes Houston's Adds to Record .,,, By TED MEIER Associated Press Sports Writer Elvin Hayes, the Big E, whose Alf-Amerlcan play snapped UCLA's 4?'game winning streak last month, has put his name in another niche in the college basketball record book, The 6*foot-8 star of lop-ranked Houston threw in 44 points and grabbed 21 rebounds to pace the unbeaten Cougars in a 130-75 romp over Arlington, Tex», Thursday night. His performance not only helped the Cougars lo their.25th straight, 24 this' season, and lo their 54th in a row at home, but made the Big E the third leading career scorer in the record book for a three-year period. In moving up to third place will) a career total of 2,525 points, 855 this season, Hayes passed Elgin Baylor's 2,500 at Seattle and Bill Bradley's 2,503 at Princeton. He needs only 14 more points lo pass Frank Selvy's 2,538 atFurman. Oscar Robertson is No. 1 on the career scoring list with 2,973 during his undergraduate days at the University of Cincinnati. Dickie Hemric of Wake Forest is listed as second, but he needed four years for his 2,587 points. Ron Sanford, another 6-8er, tallied 34 points lo lead the seventh-ranked New Mexico Lobos over Arizona 102 - 74 before 14,855 at Albuquerque. It was sweet revenge for the Lobos, who had their 17-game winnins streak snapped by Arizona several weeks ago. Duke's eighth-ranked Blue Devils, the only other team in The Associated Press Top Ten to see action, overcame a slowdown by Wake Forest and beat the Deacons 50-41 at Winston-Salem, N.C. The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame beat NYU 70-67 in New York's Garden and accepted a bid to the NIT postseason tourney after the game. The Irish, now 168, join Army, Fordham and Oklahoma City as the only teams picked so far for the 14- team NIT field. Oklahoma City, paced by Rich Travis' 32 points, scored a 78-74 home court victory over Mardin-Simmons. Bradley, also playing at home, kept alive its hope of a tie for the Missouri Valley Conference title by whipping Tulsa 85-67. In other home court triumphs, Wyoming took Arizona State 9186, Fur man edged Clemson 66-64 in overtime. Massachusetts downed Rhode Island 76-68, George Washington oeat Georgetown, D.C., 65-61, and Miami of Ohio defeated Xavier of Ohio 55-52. On the road, Syracuse whipped Colgate 80-72, Holy Cross nipped Connecticut 86-85.

In a surprise, Alma won their way to the Semifinals with an easy 49-40 win over favored Mf, Ida, who had entered the game with a 20-1 record. Tonight Alma meets Ashdown, wlio had some worries before subduing Tuck«?rman 5544. Greenwood continued to astound the fans, the latest coming In their 41*36 win over Star City, Star City, playing fine ball, led from the start and worked up a 31-21 cushion midway In the Thursday's College Basketball third quarter. At this point, how By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ever, the proud Greenwood girls East came back to earn a battle with Syracuse 80, Colgate 72 Notre Dame 70, NYU 67 gin at halftlme. Throughout the third quarter the Lady Cats were able to score, but Leslie still matched the Ladies for every field goal. So this put Hope in a slimy 46-40 lead after three periods. But when the Lady Cats needed the more comfortable lead toward the end, they finally settled down and problems became a thing of the past. Once again the Hope guards allowed very little, and the forwards continued their balanced barrage to get the win. And they closed like champions, scoring a new high for this tournament. Tonight against Greenwood the Lady Cats will be meeting a tough opponent with a 26-6 record. The game will not start until 8:20 p. m., but in order to get a good seat the Hope fans are adyised to make it to Prescott, weather permitting, for the first game at 7 o'clock.
