Northwtrt Arkansas TIMES, Tut*., April 23, 1974 rAYITTIVILLI, ARKANSAS Grant Hall Doctors J And K And BAAAD Billy It had been only four hours v since the New York Nets -hiade Dean Tolson their "seventh-round ABA draft choice, but already, "Tree" 'Was getting the treatment Jrom the regulars at Barnhill ·Fieldhouse. " : "Just wait'll you get up in : the air and one o [those dudes cuts your legs out from under you." said Vernon Murphy. Tolson replied that there was "an art to breaking your fall," but he couldn't convince Syl Allen, Ray Buckner. Ivan Jordan or Mike Puccio. "Look at what happened to David Thompson," they said. "Yeah, well, I would've just .grabbed hold of the rim," '..rejoined Tolson. As if to ·emphasize his point, Tree took a pass, drove the base- l i n e and executed a left. handed hesitation dunk. T h e razzing continued ..unabated: "Just think, man, the Nets already have Dr. J, "Dr. K, Billy Paultz, Wendell 'Ladner. Billy Schaeffer..." " "Schaeffer -- who's he?" asked Tolson. ? Puccio filled h i m in: -"Schaeffer is BAAAAAD, · " man. He's a 6-7 forward with "a jump shot that won't quit. '·As a pure shooter, he's 16 Uimes better than Rickey Medlock." ,. That was too much for Tpl- :s o n , who simply said, .-"Awww!" Still, never having - been to New York, he couldn't ! 'Challenge Puccio's status as -resident expert on t h e Nets. vPuccio hails from Brooklyn, .and saw New York play when .he was home in December. .-, "They have a 17,000-seal arena." said 'Poooh,' "and the fans go almost as crazy for them as they do for the Knicks." . "' The gap may narrow further, with the Knicks on the ·/brink of playoff elimination J'by Boston, and the Nets 'having swept Kentucky in -'four games. Not to mention Dave DeBusschere's switch " from Knick player to Net '"· general manager after this -'season. ' Tolson has met Doctors J and ' K (Julius Erving and "Larry Kenon), and likes the 'idea of playing with them. "But he realizes it's still very -early.. "A representative of ·the Nets called this morning," he said, "and I told him I'd "wait until after the NBA draft .to negotiate." ; Regardless of what team he,_- jsigns for, Tolson knows that" ·"making the team is the main thing." Toward that end,, he Is working to improve his jump shot, ball handling and lebound positioning. RECORD FOR WINS \ The Arkansas baseball ;team broke a record for vic- .tories in one season today, 'and never had to take the ·field to do it. Oklahoma City JJniversity was scheduled to the Razorbacks in a jioubleheader at Fort Smith, ·but the Chiefs forfeited both ·games. I That gives Arkansas a Record of 24-18. The previous Record for wins was 23, set ^n 1971 and tied last year. ;The '71 team lost 18 games ·and last year's Razorbacks Host seven. Norm DeBriyn has ."been the coach of all three '.teams. ; "I hate to get the record this way," said DeBriyn. "We'd love to play OCU, but' they're missing their two best pitchers and their best hitter. Their coach said he didn't want to come with half a team." Arkansas will complete its season this weekend on the road against Houston. The Razorbacks still have a mathematical chance to finish fourth in the Southwest Conference at 12-12. DeBriyn will start Dennis Pugh in . the single game Friday and Gerald Hannahs and Richard Miller in the Saturday twin- bill. FIRST-DOWN INDEX Many Wishbone watchers contend that the four-back offense can be stopped if its first-down plays are held to three yards or less. The Alabama passing wrinkles have modified that notion a little, and Arkansas may modify it further if conditions are favorable for the pass this Saturday at Little Rock. But in the stiff wind which eliminated the threat of the pass much of the time in the first Red-White game here, the first-down index proved reliable. There were 48 series of downs in the game, and the stakes were moved 34 times. On the 14 unsuccessful series, the first-down plays netted minus 10, minus 10, minus nine, minus three, minus two, minus one, zero, zero, one, one, two, three, five and six yards. Of the 34 successes, the first-down gain was five yards or more 23 times. When two teams are moving the chains 71 per cent of the time, as the Red and White did Saturday, a higher score than 16-16 would seem likely. But the Red team realized no points out of trips to the VVhite seven- and three- yard lines, and the White likewise fizzled at the Red seven and four. Similar goal-line difficulties plagued Arkansas l a s t fall- Saturday's failures can probably be attributed to a lack of spring work on goal-line offense, the absence of fullback Marvin Daily, and defenses which could safely gang up on the running game. But the coaches will work hard this week at finding some keys to the end zone. A few Red players groused ..after,,Saturday's game that ''the'"White team had been given an "extra play," as a result of a fourth-down penalty that came before the whistle 1 couldn't be refused. . tally, it was the Red team ;hat got the extra play. It came after the clock had expired at the end of the third period. An extra light on the third zero of the Scoreboard clock made it appear that eight seconds remained, so the officials allowed the Red to snap the ball on second and five. Still with the wind, quarterback Mark Miller completed a screen pass to Alan Watson for 11 yards and the first Red first down of the second half. Or rather, of limbo. The clock never moved. It was Miller's only completion of the day, and I doubt if he'll give it back. innnniiiiiniiDiiiiinMiiiiinnmaniiiiiit Professional Baseball Baseball At A Glanco By The Assoclnlcd Press National League East W L I'd.

N \NFL Considers Big Expansion Program NEW YORK AP) -- The National Football League, which may lose dozens of players in 1975, begins talking seriously today about the possibility of adding anywhere from one to five teams that year. The 26 NFL teams, concerned about unresolved negotiations with its players and potential competition from the infant World Football League, begins what is expected to be at least three days of meetings to mull over the granting of franchises Kung Fu Entries Collect Honors - Winners al the second annual Kung-Fu Nalional Karate Tournament held recently in Springfield, Mo., included Fayetteville and Springdale sludenls of the Tae Kwan Do Karate Academy. Randy Chamhliss t o o k first place in the Black Belt division demqnstralion. Leon Snearly. Jr. finished first in Brown Belt free sparring and second in Brown Belt kata. Joey Boersma placed first in Blue Belt kata and Tommy Rogers was third in Green Belt kata. Others from Ihe Academy who attended the tournament were Jim Johnston, Joe Hall. Jennifer Kreie, Steve Calci Davirl Carlton. Rusty Simpson and Randy Beard. Legion Practice American Legion basebal Coach Dick Harris announcer today that there will be a prac tice Wednesday afternoon *:» at the Legion Field. o Memphis, Seattle. Phoenix, Tampa and Honolulu. In the last NFL expansion, .he Cinicnnati Bengals joined ;he league in 1968 at a cost ol about $8.5 million. This time he entry fee will likely exceet $10 million. If the NFL does decide to expand. Ihe guess is il will add two teams for the 1975 season. If there are "favorite" anc 'longshot" roles, they belong to Memphis and Honolulu, respectively, thanks to the emergence of the 12-team WFL, preparing to begin competition in July. Memphis was originally a part of the WFL's plans -- but he city told the league thanks ... but no thanks." It said it was holding out for a shot at an NFL team. But remote Honolulu, affect ed by scheduling and travel problems stemming from the nergy crisis, perhaps further dimmed its NFL prospects by accepting a WFL franchise That created the possibility ol an unpredictable legal battle "or a limited audience of only 150,000, smallest regional popu ation of the five candidate cities.

Ho resembles tho Yaz who ·on the American League's riplo Crown in 1967, but he reuses to look back. "I'll never [orgct '67 because had such a wonderful yenr nci we won the pennant, but Here's no sense in looking ack," Yaz said Monday night fter hitting two homers and a ingle for three runs balled in n Boston's 4-1 victory over the Kansas City Koyals. It was the only game played In the American League. In the lone National League game scheduled Monctny night, the Houston Astros blunked the Atlanta Drnves 7-0, TEAM CAPTAIN Yaz. named team captain by new Manager Darrell Johnson in spring training, is wrecking opposing pitchers.

Then, in the eighth, he lined a shot into straightaway center for another homer. "Yes, I would say that he's swinging a pretty good bat." Boston Manager Darrell Johnson said with a smile after the Red Sox' fourth consecutive victory. "We need him, and he knows it." Yaz, who will be 35 in August, singled and grounded out against Kansas City slarler Nelson Driles, He unloaded tho homers iigalnsl reliever Joe Hoerncr, who went looking for another pitch to throw tho Boston slugger Ihe next time he faces him.

Ramay Indians Collect First In Pre-Regional Junior High Event The Ramay Indians warmed o the Monday sunshine for 67 -3 points and first place in a pre-regional junior high track meet here. Woodland a n d Springdale Southwest finished second and hird with 60 and 40 1-3 points respectively, but coaches Dick larris of the Cowboys and Tommy Lester of the Cougars probably wished the rain had lever stopped. Woodland lost versatile Tracy Faneher midway through the meet when he injured his left lip five steps from the finish :f the 100-yard dash. Faneher von his heat in 11.65. but placed ;econd to teammate Jim Mills' .1.25. Faneher sat out the 220 and 440 dashes, the mile relay a n d the remainder of the high jump vhere his early 5-2 jump landed lim in fourth place. Mills won .he 220, Trumbo the 440 and Voodland the mile relay, but Harris was still concerned about Fancher's availability for ;he regional meet here Friday. As Lester noted. "We can eat Woodland, but we can't eat Fancher. He's one of the jest athletes I've seen in this area." Ramay Coach Gerald Daily added, "I hope he can go Friday. He deserves to compete." Before his injury, Fancher put the shot three times. His est throw of 53-6% edged ?amsy's Jim Elliott, who threw 32-lOVz. Fancher also won the ong jump at 17-3. Lester bemoaned the fact that Southwest pole vaulter Darren Jelozier bruised a heel, sprinter Troy Howard skinned himself n a fall and Scott Phillips Buffered a groin pull. "I wish ve'd stayed home," said t h e Cougar coach. By contrast, things went so well for Ramay that its number wo mile relay team of Ronald lammons, Wolfgang Albrecht, John Jenkins and Mike Green 'inished second ahead of the regulars. "They'd been asking o run all year," said Daily. Jim Luper of Ramay ran his best time of 2:11.1 in winning he 880. Also grabbing first- place ribbons for the Indians vere Todd Darter in the 120- yard low hurdles. Ned Parette n the discus and Rick Boger :n the pole vault. Springdale Central finished Fourth in the meet with 18 joints, followed by Rogers with 14 1-3, Prairie Grove with six and Huntsville with two.

Hogs Correct Mistakes, Try To Get Healed Monday marked the 16lh ol 20 spring practices for the Ar cansas Razorbacks, and the second without pads. "We thought we'd try to get some of our injured people lealed," explained offensive "ine Coach Mervin Johnson. 'We concentrated on goal-line offense, and tried to correct our Saturday mistakes." Johnson met the press for oach Frank Broyles, who lefi :he workout 15 minutes early :o attend a meeting of the Fort Smith Quarterback Club. Asked if Saturday's Red White game resulted in any player promotions, Johnson said. "Just one. Ron Fulcher earned a shot at the starting right offensive guard position ahead of R. C. Thielemann They've been running close al spring." Fulcher's most memorable play Saturday came on a third and-10 screen pass from Whiti quarterback Scott Bull to Barn abas White. Fulcher threw block which enabled W h i t c to gain 12 yards and a first clown. After the game, Broyles hac said t h a t the coaches wcri anxious to see films of thC'tigh ends and linebackers. Monday Johnson noted, "We didn' really get great play for eithe position. "Billy Burns has the mos experience of our linebackers and he couldn't play. The ligh end play left a lot to b d e s i r e d , although Mickey Billingsley played well. H graded the best." Billingsley is a freshman whi was a teammate of R o n . Don and Dick Fulcher at Benton. Last Thursday, he wai wide eyed at the prospect of hii first Red - White g a m e "I've never seen tins k i n d o enthusiasm before a game," hi said. He Indicated that playeri on both sides wore quite inten on winning, but hastened d add, "We'll still be friend when it's over." Johnson said quarterback Mark Miller and Scott Bui graded "about equally." Bntl had trouble executing the option play, an area Johnson salt would be stressed in a con trolled scrimmage t o d a y o r Wednesday. He also forecas more goal-line and passing cm phoxis. · . .

NBA PLAYOFFS In the American Basketball Association, Indiana kept alive Monday night in the Western Division playoff with Utah, win- ling 110-101 to trail 3-2 in the quest to face New York in the ABA title round. As Milwaukee advanced to the f i n a l NBA round with eight victories in nine playoff games against the Los Angeles Lakers ind Bulls, Kareem Abdul-Jab- jar sky-hooked 38 points and plucked off 24 rebounds. But it was the 35-year-old Robertson who applied the coup de grace to the overmatched Bulls.

Robertson scored 10 of his game total of 16 points in the third quarter when the Bucks broke the game open with 12 unanswered points to surge ahead 75-66 and then coast to an easy victory. "I never saw Oscar play any better. He simply turned the game around for them," said unhappy Bulls Coach Dick Mot- la, whose club was obliterated in its first NBA second-round e f f o r t in history. In the ABA, Indiana's Pacers stayed alive against the Utah Stars, after once trailing 3-0 in their series, on 29-points each by Mel Daniels and George McGinnis. Utah missed the services of ailing Zelmo Beaty, who also may be benched by an infection for Thursday's sixth contest at Tcrre Haute, Ind.
