The Texas squad will practice today in Austin, then move to Dallas for final preparations. Last-minute loss handed Wood River By BOB HERTZ Telegraph Sports Writer BREESE — So close — yet so far. That was the basketball situation for Wood River's Oilers following game six of the Tenth Annual Matre Dei Holiday Tournament played here Monday night. In a very close bout with Mascoutah's Indians, the Oilers found themselves on the short end, 70-63. The Oilers, under the direction of coach Bob Knight, were in the contest for 31 minutes. The last minute of the game saw the Indians shut the door in Wood River's face, splurging for five points without any Oiler interference. Mascoutah took the opening tip-off down for a score no a Tom Klinglehoef bucket. Wood River tied it on its first possession .with center Jerry Ringering hitting from underneath. From there on the score was knotted only on three occasions at 13, 15 and 17 as the lead changed hands four times. Mascoutah.had led at one time by an 8-2 margin but at the period's end had to settle with a 17-17 tie. Dennis Olston, 6-1 Oiler forward, counted seven points in the opening frame. He finished With 23 on an 11-1 combination to pace all scorers. Most likely the biggest South rolls, 38-7 MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — South Carolina Coach Paul Dietzel' most crucial decision for the Blue-Gray football game may have been made last week when he named his own quarterback, Tommy Suggs, as the Gray starter over the more publi- cised Bill Montgomery of Arkansas. By the time Montgomery left the bench in the sceond period, Suggs had built a 14-0 lead with two touchdown passes as the Southerners rolled to a 38-7 victory, greatest rout in the history of the 32-year-old event. Suggs, who packs 190 pounds on his 5-foot->9 frame, was named the game's outstanding player after rifling scoring shots of four yards to Tulane's • Dave Abercrombie and 50 yards to Florida State's Don Pederson. Suggs hit on 15 of 24 passes for 211 yards while Montgomery connected on only • four of 16 for 43 yards. "Tommy was more familiar with the plan than Montgomery and that is the reason that Bill might not have looked too good," said Dietzel. "If we had been running Arkansas' type offense, then you would have seen the real Bill Montgomery." Dietzel, who has worked nine all-star games, said, "This is the best team that I have worked with in a game of this type." Warriors whoop GRANITE CITY - A 29-•point blas't by Terry Riska was the key in Granite City's 69-45 triumph over Rock Island Alleman Monday in the first round of the Pontiac Holiday Basketball Tournament. The Warriors, seeded fourth, were scheduled to meet Sterling in .the second round. Heading for daylight thron in Wood Elver's side was the second quarter action. This period saw the Oilers leading by as much as eight points, 30-22, with 2:03 remaining in the half. But when that short span of time elapsed the Oilers were clinging to a one point lead, 31-30. Wood River added 14 markers in the. second quarter with Olston and Mark Burris .each counting two fielders. The Indians scored 13 in the stanza with Dale Meier high with five. Meier ended up with 19 points in the game to lead all Mascoutah scorers. The Oilers fell victims of an 18-point attack by the Indians in the third quarter. Meier scored six in the period on a two-for-two, performance from the field and a two-for-six outing from the line. Wood River scored 16 markers in the third via an 8-of-17 effort from the field. The Oilers would have been on top going into the fourth quarter but Burris was caught for' goal tending on a Klinglehoef shot. , At the end of the three periods Mascoutah led 48-57. Indian Mike Lewis scored his lone two points on a fielder to open the fourth quarter, That gave Mascoutah a 50-48 lead. Wood River could never get the score back to even throughout the rest of the period but came within two points on a couple of occasions. Burris,, with 1:20 left, completed a three-point play for Wood River that still left the Oilers down by a 65-63 count. That was to be the last Oiler score of the night. Meier rounded out the shooting with a bucket and three charity throws. Mascoutah now holds a 6-2 record. It will carry that mark into tonight's game against Washington Community High. That contest starts at 6:30 p.m. Wood River displays a 2-4 slate on the season and opposes Belleville Althoff in a 4:00 p.m. duel tonight.

It was the first loss after eight victories for Drake—a winning streak that earned the Bulldogs seventh place on The Associated Press poU of the nation's Top 20 teams.

Jeff Halliburton had scored 13 of his 20 points in the second half, keeping Drake neck and neck with fired-up Niagara. Three points separated the teams when Halliburton fouled out with 10 minutes left to play. That set off Wingate those steady pumping pulled the Purple Eagles away and gave them the Queen City crown. South Carolina ran rings around Providence, shooting off to a 10-0 lead at the start and coasting past the Friars in the Holiday Festival a Madison Square Garden. Roche, the Gamecocks' back- court ace, directed SC's attack and keyed the zone defense that destroyed Providence. Western Kentucky had similar zone success at St. John's expense in the second game with McDaniels dominating the boards and the scoring.

First 77, Loyola-New Orleans Delaware 75 Tournament und 71, Oklahoma St. 58 59, Kansas St. 56 portrait of U.S. By CVNtMtA LOWRY NEW YORK (AP) - ABC turned two hours of prime time television Monday night into a giant canvas on which it attempted to sketch an upbeat portrait of the United States and its people at the beginning of a new decade. The huge subject, under the title "The American Adventure," was tackled by putting the spotlight on Columbus, Ohio, and some of its citizens. The program's style was familiar. A successful business man epitomized the Horatio Alger legend and was an example of the community- minded executive. A clergyman talked • of awakening feelings about religion among youth. The police chief described the operations of his "Bill-of-Rights-minded" force. But confusion lay in its detours and tangents: children- learning to live with and love a computer: a short history of a race riot 18 months ago; a lecture by John W. Gardner, on Americans' involvement with their ins t i t u t i o n s. Suddenly the program would leave Columbus for California—for a bit about pollution control or urban renewal. This free-wheeling approach gave the program its worst problems. A noble effort, it jumped all around and dragged at the same time. It was thoughtful, but somehow dull. Worst, it was grindingly talky since the producers handled most subjects by interviews and closeups. Guy Lombardo, whose orchestra playing "Auld Lang Syne" is a New Year's Eve standard, will be playing out the old year and in the new on independent stations all off Kansas State's last-ditch rally and! won 59-56 after Nebraska had whipped Oklahoma State 71-58. Both winners advanced to the semifinals against Iowa State and Colorado, earlier first round winners. In the Far West Classic at Portland, Ore., Stanford knocked off Ohio State 78-74 in overtime with Chuck Moore's lay up in the final 24 seconds th: decisive basket. In the s< cond game, Oregon State beat Harvard 91-76. College basketball results over the nation. NBC will revert to an old radio format. It will bring in big-name bands from various parts of the country and have Ben Grauer as usual in Times Square to describe the crowds —which seem to dwindle from year to year—cheering 1970 into history. Carol Burnett really has a guest making "a rare television appearance." Rita Hayworth will appear on her Feb. 1 show. She previously faced the TV cameras only for an interview with Sandor Vanocur in the early days of "First Tuesday." Carol's catch was the result of the comedienne's spoof of Miss Hayworth in "Gilda," one of her hit movies. Rita saw it and telegraphed Carol that she loved it. Upshot was the beginning of negotiations that put her on the show. * * * * * * * * IT LOG (ABC) t, KMOK (CBS) 4, KSD (NBC) 5, KETC I.
