Alexis Retains Relays Title Stuff Shot By McGinnis s Game ill f! I By LARRY ANDERSON ROSEVILLE - Avon battled all the way, but a disqualification in the final running event prevented the Trojans from end* ing Alexis' domination of the Roseville Relays here Tuesday night. Alexis totaled 60 points in the 18th annual Roseville Relays to beat out Avon, which had 68 points. It was the seventh straight meet title for the Alexis Cardinals. Finishing third was ROVA with 40 points, while Union was fourth and Valley fifth with 37 and 35 points, respectively. Host Roseville wound up in ninth place with 21 points. Alexis and Avon exchanged the lead throughout the meet although ROVA and Union were always within striking distance. With nine events completed, the Cardinals were out in front of Avon 31-28. But with 14 events completed the Trojans led by two points, 58-56, and the sprint medley was the event that had to decide the championship.

The victory lifted the defend , ing champions into a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven American Basketball Association final series, putting them in position to wrap it up Thursday night on their home court at Indianapolis. If needed, the seventh game will be here Saturday afternoon. McGinnis' basket came with 23 seconds to play and the Colonels still had a chance for two close-range shots by Jim O'Brien before Freddie Lewis sank two foul shots to clinch the verdict. '"O'Brien had a wide-open layup on his last shot and it rimmed the hoop before falling out," McGinnis said. "That's the way it goes."

"I thought my second shot was going in for sure," said O'Brien, a victim of misfortune ^LS^S'i ^^TtSS Basketball Series Between feel awful." Asked what the Colonels chances are for sweeping the last two games of the series from Indiana, Kentucky's Dan U. S., Russia Ends Tonight Issel replied "Maybe you better talk to Jimmy the Greek. He can probably give you better odds. I just know we're not going to give up." Kentucky had only nine offensive rebounds for the game, compared with 21 for Indiana. Lewis, who paced Indiana with 31 points and scored 18 of them in the last quarter, lavished praise on his rookie guard Don Buse. "He was fantastic with three successive steals to get us going in the last quarter," Lewis said. "He sure came up with the big plays." This series has had the best defense I've ever seen in the ABA," said. Coach Bob Leonard, whose Pacers have held the Colonels to 86 points in each of their last two games- equalling Kentucky's lowest scoring total this season Sets , Edges SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Cardinal righthander Bob Gibson set one major league record Tuesday night and moved closer to another but still was unable to get St. Louis back on the winning track as the Cards lost, 9 - 7, to the San Francisco Giants. The. start was the 242nd straight for Gibson, breaking the mark previously held by Red Ruffing of the New York Yankees. Gibson has not pitched in relief since Aug. 31, 1965. In the second inning he struck out Dave Kingman to put his career strikeout total at 2,820, lifting; him past Cy Young on the all-time strikeout list and putting him in-third place, behind leader Walter (Johnson and runner-up Jim Buhning! But Gibson didn't look much like, a champion in the seven innings he pitched, giving up runs to the Giants, five of them on two home runs by Bobby Bonds, and one each by Willie McCovey and Kingman. The Giants added three more runs in the eighth when they loaded the bases on a single and two walks, got two runs on a single by Bonds and another on a double by Tito Fuentes. Relievers Wayne Granger, Rich Folkers and Diego Segui all pitched in the inning. The Cards scored one run in the fourth and two each in the fifth, eighth and ninth but were unable to close the gap and start a climb out of the cellar of the National League East. Jose Cruz had a two-run homer in the ninth and Bernie Carbo had three hits for the Cards. I BALTIMORE (UPI) - The rough and tumble six-game series between the United States and Soviet Union basketball squads winds up here tonight with the U.S. seeking its fifth win. Both teams have emerged black and blue from the five previous encounters which at times have resembled rugby matches more than basketball. Action under the boards Has been fierce so far with each club accusing the other of roughhouse tactics. But while Russian elbows were piercing the American ribs, the U.S. has stymied the Soviets with their timely rebounding and deadly shooting. Providence guard Ernie! DiGregorio hit 25 points in Monday's American overtime triumph, 89-80, including a key bucket tying the match at the end of regulation time. Russia's only victory came in the second game of the series at San Diego, a two-point victory memorable for its blocking and tackling. Spectator Is Arrested At Sox Park CHICAGO (UPI)-A spectator at the Boston Red Sox-Chicago White Sox game in : White Sox Park was arrested Tuesday and charged with battery and dis orderly conduct for allegedly yelling obscenities and trying to attack Boston Red Sox designated hitter Orlando Cepeda during the game, police said. Cepeda signed a complaint against Roberto Iglesias, 33, Chicago. He was being held in lieu of $1,000 bond. Cepeda charged Iglesias yelled obscenities in Spanish at him whenever he came up to bat, police said; During the •seventh inning, Iglesias allegedly pushed past a guard and tried to attack Cepeda, police said, and an altercation ensued. "Man it was rough out there," said Minnesota's 6-9 forward Ron Behagen after Monday night's game in New York. "Everytime I'd go for a basket, my man would go for me." While Russia's aggressive style will be remembered most by their, opponents, the Soviets are most' impressed by DiGregorio's play. Russian coach Vladimir Kandrashin said of the 6-foot guard, "If we had Ernie DiGregorio, we would not have lost a game." To prevent a final loss tonight, the Russians will have to stop not only DiGregorio, but also his Providence team* mate, center Marvin Barnes who scored 21 points Monday despite the clinging Soviet defenders.

At the wire in the sprint medley, the Avon anchorman edged out Alexis for fourth place and what appeared to be the meet title for the Trojans and a dd- throning of Alexis. However, it was ruled that the Trojans had exchanged a baton outside the hand-off zone. The disqualification gave Alexis fourth place in the event and the necessary four points to win.

Powell also pointed out that winning the freshman 440 and 880 relays probably made.tiie difference in the final score. The two first place finishes gave Alexis the same number of wins as Avon — four. Balance was also a factor in the victory, felt Powell. The Cardinals had more runners than the other schools. Avon's strength was in the relays, where the Trojans won four of the nine relay events. There were no individual winners for Avon. Scoring in the meet went 6-43-2-1 for individual events and 10-8-6-4-2 for relays. Despite good weather conditions, no records were set in the meet. Individual winners included Moore of Northwestern in the long jump and Jones of La­ Harpe in the pole vault. Junior Lafferty of Alexis won the mile run. Two Valley trackmen also captured firsts. Thompson was first in the shot put, and Webber won the 880-yard run. Dave Hays of Southern took first place in the discus,-while teammate Shelly Johnson finished first in the high jump.

The Canadiens lead the series, three games to two. Both teams, who set two National Hockey League playoff records, will return to Chicago for the sixth game Thursday night. The 15 goals were the most scored in a playoff game while the eight goals picked up in the second period for both teams was another record. Chicago Coach Billy Reay was astonished at the outcome of the game. "I'm sure happy with the ; win. It was just what we 1 needed but I'm realJy amazed to see an 8-7 score in the playoffs," said the 54-year-old coach. "I was wondering if they would ever let up scoring in that second period but at least we proved that we could come back and we had balance tonight for which I am very pleased," added Reay. On the other side of the rink, Canadiens Coach Scotty Bowman was gloomy. "I never thought I would ever see a game like that. It sure was a wide open game for both sides. We both played loose on defense but both offensive teams did not make too many mistakes. It just goes to show you that anything can happen in a hockey game." Most observers predicted a goalies duel in the playoffs but both netminders, Ken Dryden of Montreal and Tony Esposito of Chicago, were far from effective. Lou Angotti scored Chicago's Eighth goal in the third period which proved to be the winner. Jim Pappin and Stan Mikita each chipped in with two goals.
