While the glamour boys on offense were pounding out o.riK} yards in total offense en route to an 11-1 record, Ull henchmen were holding the oppos* lion to 2,090 yards in tutni offense and a mere 93.1 yards per game rushing. "Our defense is an ex- hellcy Hamliii, a ·ilh two-undcr par- are going holes co-leader after the rst day, and Lenora Beserra. liss Hamlin rcorded a 36-38-4 Saturday as,Miss Beserra, a wo-season veteran who has ever won a title, shot even par C-36--72.

Miss Vhitwortb won her second Civ- tan title in a sudden death ilayoff. Mrs. Carner had five birdies, hree bogies arid a double bo- ;ey for even par. Miss Hamlin started with a ush taking birdies on the ourth and fifth holes, but ran nto a streak of tough luck in osting four bodies before get- ing her second birdie of the ay on tbe 12th hole. Tied at 145 are Murle Brcer, Sue Roberts arid Judy Rankm perienced group and if it ca.. lold up early in the season, it ooks like we've got a chanc.-c to be half-way decent," said Yeoman, who has eight offensive and eighl defensive starters lack from lasl year's Astro- Blucbonncl Bowl titlist. The most awesome siplit UH opponents likely will see this 'all is the Cougars' defensive 'orward wall which includes eft end Larry Keler, a senioi- from Orange, the "midget" of the four at 224; tackles Wilson iVhitley and Lee Canalito, both sophomores; and Mack Mitchell, 6-8, 255 senior right defensive end. Mitchell, a converted basketball player, is the loading e culioncr along this death row. Mitchell has been the Cougars' leading quarterback sacker the past two seasons, snagging 13 ast year. TOP PICK? "I'm just repeating what couple of pro scouting combines have said," Yeoman said. "The figure if we have a good year and he has a good year, he might be the No. 1 pick in the pro foolball draft." "There aren't many 68, 255 pound kids around that run ;i 4.6 40 i yard dash," Yeoman said. As for Keller, Yeoman said 'lie's never out of position. He iasn'1 been out of position for 'hree years and he has gool ;pccd." Tbe Cougars aren't too con* cerned atxnil having a pair of sophomores at the tackle posi tions. Canalilo is an off-season amateur boxer and Whilley is listed as potentially Houston's greatest defensive lineman. For the few who get past UH's defensive front four, there's an impressive group of linebackers waiting -- Harold F-vans, Gerald Hill and Bubba Broussard. TWO-YF.AK STARTERS Evans and Broussard are two-year starters at their positions and Hill is moving ta middle linebacker from his defensive tackle position lasl year. "He did a good job adjusting in spring," Yeoman said. "He's got great speed and Ebow. The Cougars field high-octane football sense." Totld Williamson and Robert jiblin, a third learn AP all- America pick last year, will return at cornerbacks and Barney Williams and Joe Rust will fill in at safeties left vacant by Jeff Bouche and Howard traditionally and diver- seified offenses that don't like lo stand still and this year's group hopes to give the star-studded defense plenty of rest. Only losses were 1.000-yard rusher Leonard Parker, quarterback D.C. Nobles and tackle Ken Baugh. Nobles, a fleet run' ner and adequate passer, will be rcpaced by junior squad- man David Husmann. Parker's replacement will be 185-pound Dallas junior Donnie "Quick Draw" McGraw. who came by bis nickname honest ly.

"Andy Messersmith said he eard the remark on the radio efore the game. "I never would say anything ke that," said Marshall. Dodg- r Manager Waller Alston ackcd up his reliever. "Mike would just never say anything like that," Alston said I just know he would never do It should have been a memo- able day for Marshall, who ied his own record for the nost appearances by coming in or liis 92nd relief stint. Marshall came on in the sixth vhen Messermith began to veakeri and ended up giving tip he game-winnig homer to Joe Morgan in the eighth inning. Alston had a chance to lake Marshall out of Ihe game in the op of the eighth when the Dodgers had men on first and second and two outs. The Dodger manager decided o let Marshall bat for himself and he rapped a hard grounder a end the inning. "If I look Marshall out. I vould have had to go with Jim Brewer who hasn't had much vork lately or with one of the younger pitchers." Alston said. 'I just didn't want to do thai in this situation. "Besides, Marshall is a pretty fair hitting pitcher." Alston said despite all the work he had received, his ace came inlo this crucial series with lots of rest--at least for Marshall. "Actually he likes lo work even more than he has recently and he is more effective that way," Alston said of Marshall, now 13-11. "Iton Perranoski used to like lo pitch all the time, but I. don't recall a pilchcr who liked lo work as much as Marshall." The game ended in another controversy when Aston dis putod the final out. a swinging strike by Jimmy Wynn. The Dodgers said Bench die not field the ball cleanly. "They tried lo say I scoopec the ball," said Bench.
