(AP) - Bob Devaney nearly quit coaching after 14 low-paying high school seasons before getting the break that led to his pinnacle as coach of the national champion Nebraska Cornhuskers. "It was 1953 and my plans were to return to college, get a masters degree and take some boring administrative job." said Devaney. "Then, Duffy Daugherty at Michigan State called me and my real life began." Devaney was en route to an all-star coaching assignment in the American Howl here when advised Orange Bowl king Nebraska had been voted No. 1 in the final Alcindor retains lead in NBA scoring race NEW YORK (AP) — Lew Alcindor is still securely atop t h e National Basketball Assoiciation scoring list but there's plenty of scrambling going on behind him. The big Milwaukee star and starting center for the West in next week's All-Star game in San Diego leads with a 31.9 points-per-game average. But San Diego's F.lvin Hayes switched places with John Havlicek, taking over second place with a 2!).fi average to 20.1 for the Boston Celtics' playmaker. And Jerry West of Los Angeles, who suffered a broken nose in a game against. San Diego last Saturday, moved into fourth place with a 28.2 average, dropping Lou Hudson of Atlanta, 27.7, to fifth.

The Cornhuskers. 11-0-1 after whipping LSU 17-12 in the New Year's night Orant'o Bowl game, outpolled Notre Dame in the last voting round. Devaney began his coaching career in 1939 as a $12. r >-a- month high school mentor. It didn't get much better despite many victories and he "was about ready to try something else more lucrative." Daugherty had taken over as Michigan State's head coach and called to offer Devaney the post, as the Spartans' defensive backfield aide. 1) e v a n e y ' s acclaim at Michigan State earned him the head coaching spot at Wyoming in l!l. r )H and he moved to Nebraska in l!lh"i. South Carolina upset by North Carolina Northwestern tries luck against Aussies cT CHICAGO (AP) Australia's National Basketball team will invade Northwestern tonight and then close its trip at Michigan Wednesday night to complete a tour of Big Ten teams. The Aussies, who will go up against Northwestern with a 1-7 record against, Big Ten foes. have made a remarkable showing for a touring team. Although their only victory was a 73-03 decision over Michigan State, the tourists have been competitive, losing to such Big Ten contenders as Illinois and Minnesota by the narrowest of margins. In view of the fact, that the Australian team will have met every Big Ten opponent, Outdoors with John Stetson It's good to be back after a week in the boonies — tho snowwhite boonies of northern Wisconsin where the family, some snowmobiles and Ice fishing were the order of the day. Nothking can beat a midwinter interlude to calm frazzled nerves after the holidays and northern Wisconsin is a fine place. Sure Florida is great and other warmer climates have their appeal but a real old fashioned snow fun vacation has some of its own advantages. The ice fishing we hit. around Wausau wasn't spectacular, but nice fish were caught steadily and the best part of Wisconsin ice fishing is the shanties, complete with stove, that shelter you from the hammering winds. Many tales and outdoor tips change hands in an ice shanty. And if the fish aren't biting the snowmobiles are always ready to streak out across the flat white surface of a snow covered lake, river or field. And then there are the sauna baths and the children watching real sleighs pull up alongside of cars in the super market parking lots where snowblowers and plows try to keep pace with the snow. To the few that slill have a sleigh and horse the snow becomes fun and to the army of snowmobilers and skiers it also means pleasure. We are glad to be home but none of our family will forget the outdoor fun and tranquility of a white week in the snowflake state of the midwest. # * * * Illinois deer hunters harvested 2,029 deer in the second half of the 1970 shotgun season bringing (he unofficial total for the shotgun season to 8,756 deer killed. This increase of 386 over last year's total is not firm until a final total can be made according to Jim Lockart of the Department of Conservation. Jo Daviess was top county in the 1970 season with 153 deer killed. There were a total 46,880 permits sold for the deer season indicating that one of every five hunters look home venison. the Big Ten plans to include the National team in its records.

Maival Ii2 (I)avev IX) Varhle TV won on forfeit from Mark Oil SKATTLK (AD — Conner Washington fullback Hay Jackson says he accepted an assistant coaching position with the Huskies determined to be neither a resident black nor a social worker. Jackson, 35, was hired Monday as Washington moved to solve the continuing black turmoil within its football team. Athletic Director Joe Kearney also said he expected to name a black administrative assistant within the next two weeks. The hiring of Jackson came after a Dec.. 19 report by university regents thai some institutional racism still existed in Husky athletics. The R e g e n t s blamed inadequate attempts to solve past problems for the continuing controversy. Four black sophomores quit the team in November during a black boycott which precipitated the investigation. But, Jackson made it clear Monday his main goal was coaching. Owens said Jackson would be in charge of the linebackers o r defensive backs. "I've been given an informal kind of assurance that, I won't be considered the resident nigger, if you want: to use that term," Jackson said. "The fact that is important to me is that, traditionally, as I look at the black coaches throughout the country, they are looked upon as what you would call social workers and the go : between between the white coaches and black athletes. "I hope, and I am sure, that 1 will be given the same responsibilities the other coaches have been given, with the same expectations," he added. Monday's College Basketball East Fairmont St. HI, W.

South Korea, 8. By ASSOCIATED PRESS South Carolina came out second best—on the basketball court and in The Associated Press Poll. The second-ranked Gamecocks suffered their first setback of the season after rolling up nine successive victories as North Carolina stunned their Southern guests 79-64 Monday night. It was. in effect, the second triumph of the day for the Tar Heels. Earlier in the day they broke into the Top Twenty ratings, tying Purdue for 19th place. North Carolina, 9-2, grabbed the lead at the outset, raced to a 40-26 intermission lead, then stayed cool even when the aroused Gamecocks charged within four points in the second half. South Carolina, with Tom Riker gaining scoring honors with 20 points, was forced to foul to get the ball late in the game and the Tar Heels converted the charity tosses to wrap up the upset. They were led by sophomore forward George Karl's 17 points and limited All-American John Roche to 14. The runaway leader in the voting was still UCLA, amassing all but two of the 26 first-place votes to pile up 526 votes by the nationwide panel of sports writers and sportscasters. South Carolina and Marquette, with one first-place vote apiece, followed the Bruins with 478 and 426 votes respectively. Southern California retained fourth place with 362. Penn, which collected 293 votes to move past Western Kentucky into fifth place, opened its defense of the Ivy League crown with a 70-62 victory over Princeton. The Quakers, led by Dave Wohl's 20 points, held off a Tiger rally with deadly foul shooting, going 26-for-30 from the charity line. Big Jim McDaniels exploded for a career-high 49 points as No. 6 Western Kentucky topled Tennessee Tech 95-82. The big seven- footer hit seven straight points late in the game to lock up the Hilltoppers' triumph. Seventh-ranked Jacksonville, up two places from the previous week, Kansas, up from 12th to eighth, Notre Dame, which leaped from 15th to 9th, and No. 10 St. Bonaventure, up from 13th, were idle. Other unscheduled teams filling out the Top Twenty were No. 12 Indiana, up two spots; Utah State, climbing from 19th to 15th; Drake, seventh to Ifith. Fordham, breaking into the chart as No. 18, and Purdue, 20th a week ago. Eleventh-ranked Kentucky, which fell three places in the poll, trailed by as many as 13 points in the first half but came on strong to turn back Mississippi State 79-71. Mike Casey hit 19 of his game-high 26 points in the second half for the Wildcats and Tom Payne added 24. Louisville, bounding up four spots to No. 13, played near- flawless ball to rout Georgetown College 115-76. Larry Carter's 20 points led .six double-figure scorers for the Cardinals, whose coach, John Dromo, remained hospitalized with a coronary insufficiency. Howard Stacey piloted the team. Villanova, sinking from llth to 14th, dropped North Dakota through the floor as the Wildcats led from the opening buzzer en route to a 103-63 romp. Howard Porter led the balanced Villanova attack with 20 points. Tennessee, which slipped from 10th to 17th in the poll, smothered Mississippi and high-scoring Johnny Neumann 98-85. The Volunteers, topped by Mike Edwards' 26 points, double-teamed Neumann and held him to 26, well below t h e nation-leading 44.3 average he had going into the game. Dave Rhodes led the Rebels with 32. In other major games, John Mengelt poured in 40 points as Auburn belted Georgia 7958; Georgia Tech's Yellow Jackets stung Maine 99-52 behind Rich Yunkus' 29 points and 15 rebounds; Alabama, with Wendell Hudson leading five double-figure scorers with 21 points, upset Louisiana State 101-87 and LaSalle, paced by Ken Durrett's 22 points, turned back late- rallying Tulsa 63-61.

Purdue 13 North Carolina 13 St. Louis U. pays SIU visit tonight CARBONDALE —Two regulars — Nate Hawthorne and John Garrett — will be on the sidelines tonight when Southern Illinois University's Salukis resume basketball competition by hosting St. Louis U. at the SIU Arena. Game time is 7:35 p.m. Bob Hawthorne, a fast- coming sophomore from Mt. Vernon, and. Garrett, a junior from Patoka, are recovering from ailments which slowed them during the holiday break and will be available for service. Hawthorne was bothered by the flu, Garrett a foot infection. Despite being weakened by their absence from the starting lineup, SIU coach Paul Lambert reports his outfit ready to challenge "one of the better collegiate teams in the Midwest.' The Billikens, although owning only a 6-6 mark, have lost to such classy opponents as Marquette, Notre Dame, UCLA, Bradley, Illinois and Michigan. Slated to open against the Missouri Valley Conference member are L. C. Brasfield and Marvin Brooks at the forward positions, Stan Powles at center and Greg Starrick and John Marker at the guard spots. Brasfield and Starrick have paced the Saluki offense so far this year with respective 27.6 and 23.8 scoring averages while both Hawthorne and Garrett are above the 11- points-per-game mark. Following tonight's game the Salukis will make their third trip to Texas Saturday night when they will face Lamar Tech at Beaumont. SIU's present blemishes have been at the hands of Texas and Texas Tech while the Salukis' three wins have been over Winston-Salem, Northern Iowa and Arkansas. i..-*-^^.
