B-4 Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, January 11, 1971 Marquette's demise: other clubs too tall ST. LOUIS — Marquette's Explorers took another one on the chin Saturday night as they fell to the Duchesne Pioneers, 84-49, on the latter's floor. It was third straight loss for the Alton unit in a 4-7 season, to date. For Duchesne. it was its 10th win in 13 starts. The opposition's height hurt the Explorers as it has all year. "We're (Marquette) trying to stay with tlieso taller clubs." said Coach Mike Mathews of Mafqudte. "It's a tough job and since we don't have any tall boys the job K even tougher." Duchese led after first quarter the Pioneers tacked on an additional 26 markers while holding down the Explorers to IS. At halftime it was 43-27, Duchesne. Torn Thoele. a Duchesne regular standing at 6-foot-8. counted 16 points in first half Big 10 players dominate figures TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - It. was Big Ten day in the American Bowl, far from the midwest's snowy terrain. —Ohio State's Leo Hayden ran for two touchdowns, gained 75 yards rushing and was named most valuable player. —Michigan's Paul Staroba caught six passes, two for touchdowns, to gain 66 yards. —Michigan quarterback Don Moorehead hit eight of 12 passes for 69 yards and one score. All that Big Ten Conference muscle Sunday led the North to a 39-2 triumph over the outclassed South in the college all-star production. Although the live crowd was only 12,000 in fog-shrouded Tamp Stadium, the sponsoring Lions International proclaimed the venture a financial success and said it will be back in 1972. Reason for the sucess was a $50,000 fee from an independent television network. The South, favorites of the tiny crowd, never got rolling and when the favored Yanks scored 20 points in a three- minute span midway through the first half it became a lopsided affair. Moorehead broke up a boring first quarter by driving the North 51 yards for a score. Hayden banged across from the three and it was 7-0 with 23 seconds left in the period. Clifton Hardy, another Michigan ace, started the South misfortunes by intercepting a pass by Arizona State's Joe Spagnola. He returned it 22 yards to the Rebel three and Hayden crashed over on the next play for a 14-0 lead. South running back Sam Scarber of New Mexico coughed up the ball on the Rebs' next try, with Rhodes Scholar Willie Bogan of Dartmouth recovering at the Southwestern rolls to Wlh South 15. Boston College passer Frank Harris hit Staroba on a 15-yard bullet and it was then 20-0. It became academic after that and the South's only glory came when Richard 11 a r r i n g I o n of Houston trapped North running back Paul Dwycr of Georgetown for a safety in the third quarter. The North was coached by Bob Dcvaney, head man of national champion Nebraska, with assistance from Nor- thweslern's "coach of the year," Alex Agasc. Fran Curci, who switched from the University of Tampa to Miami last month led the S o u t h after an illness knocked out Auburn Coach Ralph "Shug" Jordan.

"I think I really lost it on the second round," • said Caper, 1970 PGA player of the year and a playoff winner in this tournament a year ago. "I had 37 putts on that round." Casper, usually one of the most mild-mannered players on the tour, leveled a baleful glare at the cameraman after he was disturbed "right in the middle of my swing." He missed the fairway, but managed to save par on the hole and force the playoff. Lunn said a string of five holes starting at the llth was the key to his triumph. "I played those just about as well as I could," he said. B y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS In the nine days between meetings with Toronto, things obviously improved for the Detroit Red Wings. But they'll have to get a lot better to satisfy the National Hockey League club's new executive alignment. The Wings, armed with new Coach Doug Barkley behind the bench and ex-coach Ned Harkness in the general manager's office, dropped a 3-2 decision to the Leafs Sunday night, a vast improvement over the last time the two teams met when Toronto pummeled Detroit 130. Barkley, named permanent coach of the team just hours before Sunday's game, watched the Wings outplay the Leafs for much of Sunday's game only to lose on a late goal by rookie BUI MacMillan. In other NHL action Sunday, Philadelphia came from behind to top Montreal 3-2, Boston blitzed California 7-4, Buffalo tied Los Angeles 2-2, Minnesota nipped Chicago 3-2 and New York knocked off St. Louis 4-2. In Saturday's games, New York shut out Minnesota 1-0, Chicago nipped Boston 4-3, Montreal blanked Los Angeles 1-0, Toronto took Pittsburgh 5-2, Detroit edged Buffalo 3-2, Philadelphia whipped California 5-3 and Vancouver and St. Louis battled to a 2-2 tie. ' Barkley was named interim coach of the Red Wings Friday after GM Sid Abel quit and Harkness was moved up to replace him. After the Wings beat Buffalo Saturday, the interim part of Barkley's title was lifted. 1 The Wings tried to reward their new boss with another victory Sunday and outplayed Toronto, outshooting the Leafs 34-19. But the Leafs' defense and goalie Bruce Gamble held Detroit off until MacMillan's unassisted goal with just over four minutes to play gave the Leafs a 3-1 lead and decided the game. Norm Ullman's 24th goal and Ron Ellis' No. 16 had given Toronto a 2-0 edge. Detroit got goals from Wayne Connolly and Tom Webster. Philadelphia used a pair of goals by rookie Bill Lesuk to knock off Montreal in a nationally televised game. Serge Bernier had the first Flyer goal after Montreal had jumped in front on scores by Jacques Lemaire and Bill Collins. After Lesuk's third period goal broke the tie, goalie Doug Favell protected the victory with a string of sensational saves. Gerry Meehan's third-period goal earned Buffalo its tie with Los Angeles. It balanced a final-period goal by Butch Goring of the Kings after Buffalo's Ron Anderson and Eddie Joyal of LA had swapped goals in the first two periods. Phil Esposito's 38th goal in 41 games broke a 4-4 tie for Boston and the Bruins ripped California. Esposito split the Seals' defense in the final seconds of the second period and fired an offbalance shot that put the Bruins in front for keeps. Johnny Bucyk and Ken Hodge had two goals apiece for the Bruins, front-runners in the NHL's East Division. Dave Balon connected for a pair of third-period goals as the Rangers scored four times in the third period to whip St. Louis. The victory kept New York one point behind Boston in the East race. The two goals gave Balon 25 for the season, second only to Esposito in the NHL. Brad Park and Bob Nevin had New York's other goals, wiping out a 1-0 Blues' lead provided by Craig Cameron's second- period goal. Minnesota used third-period power play goals by Judes Drouin and Barry Gibbs to defeat Chicago. Gibbs' winner came with 1:33 left on the game.
