And no pro basketball team has ever overcome that big a hurdle in a seven game playoff. Furthermore, the Royals are getting virtually no help from their rookie-of-the-year, ailing Idealistic for today's game Jerry Lucas. His back injury has hobbled the Royals which becomes the host team Sunday night when the Eastern Divi sion finalists resume hostilities at Cincinnati. The aging St. Louis Hawks will try to match Boston's two game bulge tonight when they go for a second victory over the Warriors in San Francisco in the Western Division showdown series. Even Cincinnati Coach Jack McMahon reluctantly admitted Thursday night that his team was in a whale of a hole after dropping an 11 -point, 101-90 decision to the six-time champion Celtics at Boston Garden. "Let's not kid ourselves," the realistic McMahon said, "If he (Lucas) doesn't come around, it's Boston in five games. And that means we'll have to take one of the two (Sunday and Tuesday nights) in Cincinnati." NBA coachmg Dean Red Auerbach of the Celtics was making no predictions. "Any time you play that (Oscar) Robertson, you've got to be great to win," Auerbach said. The Royals got hot scoring performances from Robertson and veteran cornerman Jack Twyman Thursday night as the pau- rolled up 30 and 27 points respectively. But Boston forward Tom Heinsohn tossed in a game high 31 and guard Sam Jones collected 25 more to nearly match the one-two effort Wooden is key to Bruins great success NEW YORK (UPI)-Listening(after the NAIA AU Stars face to Johnny Wooden, you begin to understand why UCLA won 30 straight games this season while annexing the NCA.\ bas ketball championship. It would be hard not to re spect a man like Wooden, who seems to be -too idealistic in the modem high pressure game of college basketball. He had just watched his NCAA Blues, which includes six members of the UCLA team, lose to the AAU Stars, 82-76, in the major upset of the opening round in the 1964 U.S. Olympic basketball trials. But there was no bitterness at the second guessing he was subjected to—his players were his "only care and responsibil ity." In Loscr't Bracktt The defeat means the Blues will have to play in the losers bracket of the Olympic trials, which continue at St. John's University gymnasium today with four more games. The Blues play in the second game of the afternoon round against the Armed Forces Jets following the AAU Stripes and the Armed Forces Missiles contest • The winners of Thursday's games will play tonight, which means the surprising AAU .Stars meet the NCAA Whites the NCAA Reds. The NCAA Whites advanced by defeating the Armed Forces Missiles, 74-64; the NCAA Reds defeated the Armed Forces Jets, 86-63; and the NAIA All SUrs beat the AAU Stripes 77-74. The win by the AAU Stars was the biggest surprise of the opening round, and it produced the major question of the three day affair. Wh»t l» Important The debate centers around whether winning comes before the opportunity for the 94 par licipants to fully show them selves to the Olympic Commit tee. Wooden said he had a responsibility to play each boy an equal amount of time, so he spUt his team into two squads. He opened with his UCLA team and midway through the half, he substituted a fresh team of five NCAA AU Stars. Many felt this substitution hurt the NCAA Blues' chances. But Wooden stuck to his plan in the second half even when his team was behind. 'I feel I want to play every body an equal amount of time, he said. "If they're picked as AU Stars I feel they should have the opportunity to play. ' want to win too, but I'm obUgated to play those boys.

Californians star in National AAU meet BARTLESVILLEj Okla. (UPI) —A wave of young swimmers from California take another shot today at what are left ofj the American records in the National AAU swimming and diving championships. The only two events com pleted Thursday in first day action ended with teen-aged CaUfomians in the winners circle and old records in the ash can. Roy Saari, 19-year-old University of Southern California ace who figures big in U.S. Olympic plans this summer, decided not to try to defend his 400 yard individual medley croxvn. Dick Roth, 16, who took time out from his high school studies at Santa Clara, CaUf., to compete, fiUed in admirably and broke Saari's old American record. Saari then wiped out one of his own marks, swimming the, 1,650 yard free-style race in 16:49.3, the best ever indoors by an American. FeUow Californians finished in the ne .Yi five places of the gruelling event In aU, California swimmers took nine of the 12 places in the first two swimming events. Gerhard Hetz of West Germany and Ted Stickles of Indiana University both surpassed Saari's old mark in the 400 medley but could do no better than second and third respectively, behind Roth. Hetz, the world record holder in the 400 meter outdoor individual medley, finished four yards behind Roth, whose 4:13.2 bettered Saari's 1963 mark of 4:16.6. In unofficial team standings, use led going into second day competition with 13 points, followed by Foothills CoUege of Los Altos, CaUf., with five, and Indiana's four. Unattached swimmers, includ mg the high school stars, scored 22 points. Joe Torre too much for pitchers By United Prats Intsmatienal Maybe aU members of the MUwaukee Braves should have spent the first month of spring training in Brooklyn. That's where Joe Torre remained until March 20 — and now rival pitchers can't get him out The bushy-browed catcher- first baseman from Flatbush unloaded a two-run homer in the nth inning to earn the Braves a 7-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday at Fort Myers, Fla. It was Torre's fourth hit of the game and raised his spring batting average to an even .500, based on nine hits in 18 at bats. Showed Up Lati Torre showed up.at the Braves' camp three weeks late after a prolonged contract squabble with club President John McHale. Big Joe complained he "was not treated weU" when he finaUy signed for an estimated 525,000. But his bitterness apparently hasn't affected his hitting. , Jim Wynn of the Houston Colts matched Torre's heroics Thursday in an 8-4 victory over the New York Mels. He, too, coUected four hits, including a two-run homer in the eighth inning that tied the score, at 4-4 and a grand slammer in the 12tb that dealt the Mets their 12th defeat in 20 tuneups. Ed Bauta, who had aUowed only two hits and no nins in eight innings of toU this spring, was the victim of Wynn's game winning blow. Dick Smith hit a two-run homer for the Mets. Six CloM Games SLx of the seven other exhibitions Thursday were decided by one-nm margins. Only the Reds won with ease, whipping the Tigers, 8-3, to break a five- game losmg streak. The squeakers" were the Giants over the Indians, 4-3; the Cardinals of the Dodgers, 2-1;^ the Twins over the Yankees, 2-1; the White Sox over the Orioles, 8-7; the PhiUies over the A's, 2-1 and the Angels over (he Cubs, 6-5. Frank Robinson coUected a single and a double and Vada Pinson added a homer to pace the Reds' 10-hit attack. Rookie Sammy EUis, who pitched the first seven innings, and lefty BiU Henry Umited the Tigers to seven hits. A home run by Willie Mays ignited a three-run splurge by the Giants in the fourth inning but it was Dick Dietz' infield single in the ninth inning that accounted for the winning run. It was the Giants' eighth victory in eight meetings with Cleveland this spring. Arrigo Pitches Well Gerry Arrigo gave up only a pair of singles to PhU Lmz over the first six innings to feature the Twins* victory over the Yankees.. .Minnie Minoso's sacrifice fly capped a three-run ninth inning to carry the White Sox to victory over the Orioles. .. .John Hermstein's ninth inning single enabled the PhiUies to beat the A's. The Cardinals, limited to one hit by Sandy Koufax over the first six innings, erupted for two runs in the seventh off the Dodger ace ...
