Hope Star SPORTS Duke Stall Completes NIT Lineup I • ' • I : • Mft (Mfj ST"» rTMtlB If Bfwf 76ers Take Title for Third Year ' By TOM SALADfNO Associated Press Sports WrHer NEW YORK (AP) «. the Eastern Division title of the Na* tional Basketball Association remains in Philadelphia for the third consecutive year—but 76- er Coach Alex Hannum isn't saying whether he'll be back for another try. the 76ers, defending NBA champions, clinched the crown Sunday afternoon with a 119-108 victory over the New York Knicks and Cincinnati knocked off second-place Boston 137-111, eliminating the Celtics. Philadelphia has a 7'/2 game edge, with a 57-18 record. Boston Is 50-26 In the 82-game schedule. In other games, Sunday, Detroit beat St. Louis 133-121, Baltimore bombed Los Angeles 118-89 and San Francisco turned back Seattle 118-112. In Saturday's action, St. Louis tripped Chicago 115-109, Seattle got by San Diego 115-111 and Los Angeles nipped San Francisco 137-132 in overtime. In American Basketball Association contests Sunday, Indiana topped New Orleans 113-105, Houston walloped Oakland 12294, Pittsburgh whipped New Jersey 122-105 and Dallas edged Anaheim 112-110. The 76ers apparently didn't expect to clinch Sunday, as the dressing room was bare of champagne, with only soda pop in sight as a happy Hannum went around shaking hands with his players and murmuring "great, just great. We did It again. Hannum answered reports that he would leave the 76ers after the playoffs to go to another club by saying, "I'm complimented that my name has been mentioned for another job. I have not resigned here. My contract Is up at the end of the season and 1 will negotiate-wtttnthe" 76ers or posslBly somebody else. "Right now I'm extremely happy and am thinking only of the 7Gers and the playoffs. That's all that's on my mind right now. Let's just wait and see what happens." What happened Sunday was a big second-period for Philadelphia, triggered by Hal Green and Bill Cunningham, sending the 76ers from a 27-25 lead after one quarter to a 50-33 margin midway in the second. , Greer chipped In 13 of his 28 points and Cunningham 10 of his 18 in the spurt, The Knicks, trailing by 29 points, 98-69, entering the final period gave a sellout crowd of 19,500 an exciting finish as they got to within 113-107 with l'/ 2 minutes left before Wilt Chamberlain put the clamps to the bid. Chamberlain poured in Philly's last six points to ice the verdict. Big Wilt had 28 points, on 11 of 15 from the field and six of 12 foul shots. He also added 27 rebtunds and 10 assists. Connie Dierking scored 36 points in leading Cincinnati past Boston. Oscar Robertson contributed 29 points as the Royals built a 34*19 lead and never were headed, Larry Siegfried was high for the Celtics, with 23, Eddie Miles paced Detroit's triumph over St. Louis with 35 points and Dave Bing added 30, Lou Hudson led the Hawks with 24, The Pistons moved to within two games of third-place New York in the Pastern Division while remaining one-hair game ahead of fifth-place Cincinnati, Baltimore stormed out to a 96'66 thiro>period lead over Los Angeles and coasted in as Ray Scott, Kevin Loughery and Earl Monroe scored 39, 22 and 31 points, repecUvely, for the winners, Porker Golf Tun Downs Into Turn TULSA, pkia.
