(AP Wirephoto) Arizona State best in snow ATLANTA, (AP) - Arizona State's Sun Devils may be accustomed to run in the sun, but snow doesn't seem to slow them down. "I think we've proven now we can play on a football field with anyone in the nation," said Sun Devil Coach Frank Rush; after his unbeaten eighth-ranked team swamped North Carolina 48-26 in the snowbound Peach Bowl Wednesday night. "The conditions weren't good but it didn't stop us. "We had a mission and we accomplished it." Arizona State's mission was to win its first bowl game in five tries and the Sun Devils overcame a 26-point second' quarter by the Tar Heels to win going away. Arizona State piled up a 21-7 lead before North Carolina erupted for three touchdowns in the last five minutes of the second period for a 26-21 halftime edge, The last half was all Arizona State, however, as the Tar Heels couldn't get untracked behind second- string quarterback Mike Mansfield. Mansfield came in when starter Paul Miller was knocked unconscious on a jarring tackle as he was firing a 36-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. North Carolina's All-American tailback Don McCauley, who scored three touchdowns, said the team felt it was a "cheap shot" when Miller was hit by defensive end Junior Ah You, who was named the game's Most Valuable Player. Arizona State's" speedy backfiekT of quarterback Joe Spagnola, halfback Monroe Eley,. wingback Steve Holden and fullback Bob Thomas, along with end J. D. Hill, kept the ball moving. Eley, .a sophomore, was named the game's outstanding offensive player. Eley's performance overshadowed that of McCauley, who gained 143 yards on 36 carries. A record crowd of 52,126 sat through the wintry weather to watch the Sun Devils, who wound up the year 11-0, and the Tar Heels, who finished 8-4.

Consolation crown goes to Redbirds; Carbondale champ By DON PLARSKI Telegraph Sports Editor CARBONDALE - Alton High School's Redbirds won a first place trophy in the Seventh Annual Carbondale High School Holiday Basketball Tournament here Wednesday. It may not have been the one they wanted, but after getting' upset in their first game on Monday by Decatur Eisenhower by an 81-77 count, they and their coach, Ralph Sterrett, had to be pleased to some extent. The Redbirds fought their way through the consolation bracket Wednesday by first, trimming Mt. Vernon in a morning game, 94-50, then coming back later in the afternoon to take the title of the losers' bracket from tall Highland Park, 68-53. The Redbirds toyed with Mt. Vernon. In the process, they set three tourney records. The 94 points broke the previous one - game scoring mark by one team, held by the 1967 Alton team and the 1969 Belleville East club. They pulled down 59 rebounds to break the old mark of 57 set by the Redbirds against Olney in. 1966 and Belleville East against St. Patrick (Chicago) in 1967 against Alton. The third record was the most points in the second half — 53. The old mark was 52. The score was tied 17-17 at the end of the first period before the Redbirds broke loose with 24 markers in the second quarter to nine for the Rams. It was 41-26 at halftime. After three periods it was 69-43. Ron Caldwell, the most consistent performer of the three • day meet, led Alton with 24 points on 11 of 15 field goals and two free throws. Glen Lott and Jim Johnson each tallied Island Chris Mills had 15. Against Highland Park, Alton had a tough time for the first half, leading by three at the intermission, 27-24. Came the third quarter and the Re.dbirds erupted for 22 points to 14 for the Chicago suburban team that was seeded second in the tourney (Alton was fourth). It was Caldwell and Jim Johnson who showed the way again, Caldwell had 21 points and Johnson 19. The game was close in the third quarter when Caldwell gave his mates the park they needed. His three - point play gave Alton a 37-28 margin with 5:24 remaining in the period. The lead continued to grow as the game progressed in the latter stages. Alton hit .500 from the field with 27 baskets in 54 at- Illiiii beat St. Louis U. in Hawaii HONOLULU (AP) - The University of Illinois won the consolation championship of the seventh annual Rainbow Classic Wednesday, defeating St, Louis University 78-60.

Illinois led from the outset and at one time held a 22 point lead. The first half was a slowdown contest- with Illinois leading 28-22. In an earlier game Wednesday, New York University snapped an eight-game losing streak, beating Army, Hawaii, 104-73. The Wolverines, who ran their record to 6-4, were led by Henry Wilmore, who scored 31 points and tied the high scoring mark for this year's tournament. Howard Porter led Villanova with 29 points.

The victory over Highland Park left Alton with an 8-2 record as it has little time to mull over Carbondale feats. The Redbirds are in action Saturday night when they hit the road for a game at Breese against Mater Dei. It will be a tough one.

MERIDIAN—Hawkins 9, Dumas Wake Forest Jacksonville, Associated Press Sports Writer Top-ranked UCLA and No. 2 South Carolina both cap- t u r e d college basketball holiday tournaments Wednesday night—but neither had quite the adventure that Wake Forest did in winning a tourney of its own. The Deacons whipped ninth- ranked Jacksonville 78-77 to take the Gold Coast Classic and they had to do it not once, but twice. UCLA coasted to the Steel Bowl title, whipping Pittsburgh 77 - 64, and South Carolina won the Holiday Festival, edging fifth-ranked Western Kentucky 86-84 in a frantic finish. Bu no finish was quite as frantic as Wake Forest's heartstopper over Jacksonville, the nation's highest scoring team. John Orenczak hit a basket with 25 seconds left to give the Deacons the lead and the Wake Forest bench exploded in celebration when the final buzzer sounded, apparently signaling the victory. But an official ruled that Wake Forest's Pat Kelly had been fouled with three., seconds left and the court was . cleared of celebrants for the foul shot. Kelly missed his free throw, 7-foot-2 Artis Gilmore cleared the rebound for Jacksonville and called time with one second remaining on the clock. Jacksonville tried a court- length pass, hoping Gilmore would tip it in, but determined Wake Forest batted the. ball away and celebrated again— this time for keeps. Slender Charlie Davis whipped in 30 points and was named most vaaluable player in the tourney as tagged Jacksonville "with its second loss in less than a week. The Dolphins' other loss came against Western Kentucky and the No.. 5 Hilltop- pers almost pulled the Holiday Festival crown out of South Carolina's grasp in the final seconds at New York. The Gamecocks had used six straight pressure foul shots by Tom Hiker and John Roche to take command against Western Kentucky. But the Hilltoppers weren't through. With 13 seconds left, they swiped consecutive inbounds passes and converted baskets by Jim Rose and Rex Bailey to weep within two points of SC. Then, incredibly, Jim McDaniels picked off another Carolina pass. But his 10-foot jumper at the buzzer rolled off the rim and SC had the title. Kevin Joyce led SC with 25 points and Riker had 24. Me- 'Daniels, named MVP had 20 and Jim Rose added 25 for Western Kentucky, now 8-1. UCLA pulled away in the final 10 minutes to beat Finished Wail PANELING Pittsburgh and take the Steel Bowl title. Sidney Wicks and Curtis Howe scored 26 points apiece for the top-ranked Bruins. UCLA's victory ended a Red Berenson again haunts Philadelphia ST. LOUIS (AP) - Strong- legged Red Berensin didn't call it one of his better games, but the Philadelphia Flyers are convinced it will do .until the real thing comes along.: Berenson scored a goal and contributed four assists in the St. Louis Blues 5-2 victory over the Flyers Wednesday night in a National Hockey League game. "I can think of better games I've had, but it helps bring back the confidence," said Berenson, whose goal in the second period was his third in as many games and 'gives him 14 for the season. Injured Oct. 18 in a game against Chicago, Berenson now appears completely recovered. His performance included a picture pass setting up right wing Tim Ecclestone for the game's first goal at 10:06 of the first period. Twenty minutes later the all-star center's shot was rebounded from in the slot by left wing Bill Sutherland. Before the Flyers regained their breath, the Blues' 6-foot, 185-pound captain rifled another shot at Philadelphia goaltender Doug Favell and. Ecclestone flicked in the rebound to make it 3-1. Then, Berenson shot • a rising backhand from 25 feet that blazed past Favell to put the score out of reach at 4-1. SCORE BY PERIODS PHILADELPHIA 1 0 1—2 ST. LOUIS 1 3 1—5 FIRST PERIOD—1. St. Louis .
