Nobody was more surprised than Meminger when the All- America rookie from Marquette was asked to start in the place of Walt Frazier at one of the guard posts.

This may be their last season together and they'd like to go out a winner after being also-rans so often. STAY HEALTHY "There's no telling what we can do if we all stay healthy," Baylor said after the Lakers won their third game in seven exhibitions. "I can probably play 40 minutes a game. This was the third straight night we played and I haven't felt any strain." Baylor recalls there were only eight teams and maybe two or three outstanding plavers a season when he| entered the NBA as a rookie in 19r3. Now, he points out. there are always a dozen youngsters making excellent progress each season.

The strongest move shown by the Stars all evening came at 8:05 in. the third quarter when outside shot specialist Glen Combs hit a three-point goal to put the score at 75-66. Then, 30 second later. Combs hit another three-pointer, followed by a two-pointer and three straight baskets by teammate Willie Wise. STILL IN FRONT With 5:02 remaining and 1 the board showing the-Bucks still in front, 83-75, Combs hit -two more three-pointers to .tie the score at 83-83 after Zelmo Beaty's lay-in. The Bucks were able to pull out 95-91 going into the fourth period, but the Stars had momentum on their side to remain within two points of National Basketball Association champion Milwaukee through the bulk of the frame. A key move against the Stars came at 1:50 when the Bucks began switching offenses with each trip downcourt and the confusion in Utah's ranks began. In that last two-minutes, Utah was only able to score one basket — an easy layup by Beaty — while the Bucks scored three and hit three free' throws, to push towards the, final margin. BETTER DEFENSIVELY 'I think we were better 'defensively," assistant Stars' Coach Larry Creger said, "but they stared switching those offenses to meet everything we tried and our boys got confused." Creger was also quick to heap praise on his players, winners in the American Basketball Association playoffs last season, as far as their shooting per- formances went. "Each guy took the shots he knows he can make," Creger commented. "And when they start doing that, that's-when we win." The Stars played without the services of guard Mike Butler, sidelined for at least three weeks with an injured knee. Forward Red .Bobbins, who had to be relied upon to spell Beaty at the post, was "not up to par" because of recurring knee problems, Creger said. 8-YEAR VETERAN And as far as Beaty was concerned, the eight-year veteran from Prairie View had his hands full with the likes of Kareem . Jabbar, otherwise known as Lew Alcindor. Jabbar, who likewise had his hands full with Beaty, scored the game high of 36 points, but in front of who scored 33 in one of his finer nights as a pro. Beaty had 29 points and 12 rebounds for the evening in his toe-to-toe board battle with Jabbar. The 7-2 Bucks postman got 16 rebounds to easily dominate the Milwaukee board ai> tion. Now, the Stars go back into their own league with a Friday night exhibition encounter with the Indiana Pacers in Tooele, and then take on the Denver Rockets Saturday night in Price.
