For West Fork, Karen Bucks Fold Under Pressure Norlhwnt Arkantat TIMES, Men., May 13, 1974 rAYITTIVILLC, ARKANSAS Celtics Capture Crown MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Boston Celtics' Coach Tom Heinsohn had the last move, and it spelled checkmate (or the Milwaukee Bucks. In a championship series highlighted by the cerebral gymnastics, adjustments and countermovcs of a chess match, Heinsohn's llth hour tactical change paid ofl Sunday in the Celtics' 12th National Basketball Association title. Old pro John Havlicek drew the Bucks' defense away from the middle, allowing Dave Cow- ens to shoot over and slash through it for 28 points as the Celtics buried the Bucks in the seventh and deciding game 10287. Cowers, while spotting Mil- Ab- waukee's 7-foot-2 Karecm dul-Jabbar five inches height, also pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds. Boston's 47-42 board control fueled a fast break attack which, along with ceaseless pressure defense, finally wore down the Bucks in the fourth quarter. "This was the greatest series ever." exulted lleinsohn. a slar orward for the Celtics during their dynasty of the 1960s. MOST VALUABLE PLAYER Havlicek. voted Ihe series' Most Valuable Player, .sank only six of 20 shots Sunday after having averaged 28 points in the first six games. But with the Bucks double teaming Havlicek almost every time he advanced to the front court, Hcinsohn ordered Boston captain to decoy the Mi! waukcc's defense away from .lie middle. Bucks' reserve guard Jon McCMocklin, who sank six of eight shots despite a painful calf injury, insisted the Celtics had shown nothing new. But McGlocklin paid the Celtics full credit. "They outplayed us. They outhustled us,'' he said. most "They're emotional probably team the the league. Maybe they're better than we arc. Obviously they are. They beat us." Down 17 points midway in the onds." The 100-aml were won by 220-yard dashes Miss Dotson of Alma, who was clocked in 11.6 and 26.1. In the boys meet, Cddie Robinson of Central nipped Jerry Eckwood of Brink-ley in both races with times of 9.7 and 21.5. For Waldron. it was the Borg May Be Star Of The Future Newcom.be Wins WCT Championship second straight slate championship. Before this year, the Ouachita Relays had been considered the unofficial state moot. Waldron has not lost a jirts meet in three years, but Kayetleville came closer lo :urning the trick Saturday night than any other team has in that 'me. Said Fayetteville Coach Bill Brunner. "It was disappointing lo get that close, and then not even come home with a rophy. But we did all we could -- all of our girls had their best performances. We should be strong next year, with our junior high programs getting into swing and 16 sophomores coming back." Early noted. "I was proud of our fifth-place finish. We rjualified i n every e v e n t w e entered. And I thought Karen Sargent was one. of the outstanding performers there." DALLAS (AP) -- The future may belong to wonderchild Bjorn Borg of Sweden, but big John Newcombe capped a nine- month campaign Sunday to prove he's the current king of tennis. The 29-year-old mustachioed Newcombe, looking much like a gunfighter with his duck walk and dark features, overcame a dazzling slart by the 17-year-old Scandanavian sensation to capture the World Champions of Tennis 4-6. 6-3, 6-3, 6-2. Newcombe, who earned $50,000. a diamong ring, a Cadillac, and a fur coat for his wife on Mother's Day. said "Nine months ago I wanted to win this (tournament) and become No. 1 and now I've done it." In upping his prize money to $174.085 for the year. Newcombe became the second Australian to win this prestigious event. Ken Rosewall won the first two WCT finals and Stan Smith of the United States took it last year. Newcombe, playing the floppy-haired Borg for Ihe first time, said "I think it's obvious lhat he's going to be one of Ihe leading players for many years. He has certainly achieved a lol at an early age." FATHERLY ADVICE Newcombe also offered Borg some falherly advice, telling the teen-ager: "I think there's a great danger of overplaying and I think because he's so good at 17 everyone wants him lo play every week . . If he's really smart about it he'll jusl ake a monlh off now and then.i He's got plenly of lime. The way he hits the ball he's going :o have a lol of trouble with his arm in a few years unless he rests now and then." Newcombe said he hopes his five year-old snn, Clint, will become as fine "a gentleman, sporLsman and champion" as Borg. "It's a pleasure to see a young man now who doesn't get the big head with success," Newcombe said. "There are so many young sportsmen around who get very big-headed at 17 with a few wins. I don't know Borg lhat well but from whal I've observed he appears not In be big-headed . . . I think he's a pleasure lo have around." Borg. who won the biggest paycheck of his life with the 520,000 runner-up prize, said "lie was loo good for me There is no doubt he is the No 1 lennis player in the world." Winner Declared RALEIGH, N.C. -- Jo Ann Prentice, with a 36-hole lotal 137, was declared the winner o t h e rain-shortened 535,00 American Defender Golf Clas sic when the final round wa: called due to heavy rains. Petty In First NASHVILLE, Term. -- Rich nrd Petty, afler following Cal Yarhorpligh for most of th race, finally took ihe lead an won the $36,000 Music City 420. hird quarter, Abdut-Jabnar nd Mickey Davis led the ucks lo wilhin 71-68 as the ourlh period started. But Cowcns touched off eight onseculive Boston points as ie Celtics regained momen- um. Davis scored 13 of his 15 inLs in the second half. ' ' E v e r y b o d y kept their oise," Heinsohn said. "They nade a good run at us. but ley had a good distance to o-.iie from and they expended lot of energy trying to catch UP-" . ,, "We were more aggressive, aid Boston defensive ace Don hanoy who. despite foul rouble, helped hold Buck play- uaker Oscar Robertson lo two laskcts in 13 shots. Bucks' Coach Larry Costello ..aid the Celtics' constantly ressing defense was more ef- eclive than any offensive ad- uslments marie. B u c k B o h Dandridge, rounded by Havlicek. scored 14 joints. His r u n n i n g mate at for- vard, Cornell Warner, added list one. Robertson, 35. who may have played the last game of his ril]iant 14-year NBA career, said the Celtics "just outplayed is. We did the best we could. Dul a better team beat us today." Because the Bucks had earned $40.000 for the best record in the NBA during the regujar season, their share of the championship money is more than Ihe Celtics'. Boston's victory Sunday was worlh $100,000 for a plavoff total of $215.001). The Bucks' $65.00(1 share as final-round losers will enable them to split a pot at $220,000.
