UpS Mark tO 3'1 Ifl MVC ESTHER VILLE DAILY NEWS, FRL, JAN. 19, 1973 Page 6 Bench Sparks Drake Past North Texas DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) If you are going to be a contender in the Missouri Valley Conference basketball race, a strong bench is a must says Drake Coach Howard Stacey. Well, Stacey again found out Thursday night that's exactly what he has and it played a vital part in the Bulldogs' 79-72 toppling of North Texas State. "Tni not afraid to substitute," said Stacey after the Bulldogs boosted their Valley record to 3-1. "Whenever I have the opportunity I am going to bring in somebody fresh if it will help us." Against lowly North Texas State, senior forward-center Tony Johnson filled the super- sub role. He pumped in nine key points in the second half as Drake put the stubborn Eagles away. "Tony did the job we asked of him tonight," noted Stacey. "He came off the bench and got some big rebounds and baskets." Johnson, a 6-foot-7 senior who started earlier in the season, had plenty of support. Out-shooting guard Cleo Kilgore, who started the season on the bench, pumped in 20 points from long range. David I Kingston added 14, Dennis Bell 12, Johnson 11 and Craig Davis 10. "If we could just get Cleo and David together in one night we could be tough," noted Stacey. Kilgore hit 10 of 15 from the floor, but Langston was a not so torried five of IS from the field. Stacey also credited Drake's strong second-half rebounding effort as the Bulldogs won their third straight Valley game. "According to the statistics Sports Jim f»rr—, Editor we out-rebounded them 17 to 11 in the second half," he noted. "So that shored we were hustling on the boards." "They were tougher than I expected," Stacey offered. "We had our hands full. If they had another good guard they would be a fine club." Drake vaulted to a 13-6 lead in the first seven minutes, but North Texas State rallied be- Lombardi Award to Glover hind Bobby Iverson, who had 13 points in the opening half. Drake led 41-39 at halftime and extended its lead to 10 with eight minutes going in the second half before the Eagles again surged for a 64-64 tie on Iverson's three-point play with 6:10 left. A tip-In basket by Larry Haralson let Drake regain the edge and 13 seconds later Johnson followed with another rebound score and the Eagles never got closer than two points. "This is the best game we've played so far," said North Texas State Coach Gene Robbins. "But Drake is a fine club. I think they are the best we've played since Long Beach State." Iverson finished with 26, John Moody, former junior college player at Burlington, added 16 and Stanley Blackmon 14 for North Texas State. Drake is home Saturday night to Wichita State, 3-9 overall.

"I was thinking 'wow this is great but now I've got to make a speech,"' the drowsy-eyed 235-pound middle guard said. "I like to talk but for something like that I get nervous." Glover, who rose from the obscurity of a second-string defensive tackle to the most decorated middle guard in the nation, should be getting the hang of accepting awards. He already has the Outland Trophy as the top interior lineman in the nation. During his three-year career, Glover made 221 tackles, dropped opposing runners 27 times for 131 yards in losses, played on two national championship teams and two Orange Bowl winners. And winning the Lombardi Award as the nation's top lineman put the cork on it all. "This award means the ost," Glover said. "It exemplifies the best lineman in the country and Tworked very hard for this award this year. It means even more because of the man it is named after." Glover beat out three other finalists to win the award, named in honor of the former Green Bay and Washington CONTINENTAL LEAGUE WEDNESDAY Solid Five 7 1 Doug's Stereo 6 2 Fina 5 3 Community T.V. 4 4 Roger's Auto 3 5 Imperial Lanes 3 5 H.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Professional basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said Thursday night- he could envision only "crazy people, lunatics" as responsible for the slayings of seven persons in the fashionable Washington home he had purchased for use as a Muslim community. The Milwaukee Bucks' 7 -foot- 2 center, though visibly shaken, consented to a brief interview without pictures or tape in his modern condominium residence in suburban Mequon. Abdul-Jabbar told The Associated Press the Washington house was used for the "American Hanafi Muslim Center," which he identified as "an orthodox Muslim community." "It's the community I'm associated with— every Muslim should have a ommunity," he said. The former Lew Alcindor, who adopted his current name in 1971 after embracing the Islamic faith, said when asked by a reporter that the community had nothing to do with the teachings of Elijah Muhahmad. He explained, "There are a lot of different communities that follow Sunnah, the practice of the prophet Muhamad. There are different sects, little pockets of commmunitles all over the country. We don't believe in any racist philosophy." He said he "couldn't understand the violence at all because we haven't had any antagonistic relationships. I can think of only crazy people, lunatics, who would do it." Asked if he knew the people who lived there, he said "I know all of them." However, he said, the number of occupants ' "probably varies. People com in and out for meetings and things." Abdul-Jabbar bought the home in 1971 for a reported $78,000. He said he never lived there, and bought it with the idea of donating it to the community. Asked if he had considered the possibility of an attack against himself, he said, "Of course it's possible," Asked about his immediate plans for playing basketball, he said, "Life goes on, you know," But he said he didn't know if he would play here against Portland Friday night OPEN BOWLING This Week Due To Ladies' City Tournament!
