(AP Wi rcplioto) In Non-Showdown Reddies Blast SSC By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS S o u t h e r n State Coach Rip Powell was right, but he didn't wanl to be. Powell said last week that it wasn't realistic to expect his Muleriders to sland toe-to-toe with Henderson's veteran team. Henderson blasted Southern Stale^S-G Saturday at Magnolia in a showdown that wasn't. "1 was right, but 1 was a lot more right than I wanted to be." Powell said. "I was disappointed that they whipped us. so bad in the trenches. I knew we'd have to play a devil of a game lo have a chance, but I never figured they could blow us off the field like that." Southern State emerged as Henderson's top challenger in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference by beating Stale College of Arkansas 27-7 the previous week. Henderson is 3-0 in league play. Ouachita is 2-0-1 aftei playing a 14-14 lie with SCA Southern Slale is 1-1 and SCA is 1-1-1. Harding, idle last week s 1-2 in the standings. The Uni- ersity of Arkansas at Monticello raised its league mark to -2 with a 7-3 victory over Ar- *ansas Tech. now 0-3 in league play. TWO DIVISIONS "It begins lo look like we've ol two divisions in the AIC," ?owell said after the game. 'Henderson, and then everybody else." Henderson, shooting for its second consecutive AIC title, is Mo. 3 in the NAIA rankings and has now won 10 straight games ;oing back lo last November. The Reddies had allo\yed only 16 points in their first six ..amcs and Southern State could not score against Henderson's defense. SSC's only touchdown came when Tommy Watsor picked up a fumble and raced CO yards for a score to make it 26-6 with 9:17 left in the game. Henderson led 10-0 at the half. Henderson tailback Joe Smith carried 29 limes for 216 yards and scored the Reddies' second touchdown after a short pum Pro Basketball Standings OllIlllllllllHlllilllllllllllllilllillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllHIIlllllllllllllililllllffi Buffalo New York Philadelphia Boston NBA Eastern Conference Atlantic Division W L Pet. 4 1 .800 3 2 .600 3 2 .600 2 3 .400 GB Central Division Washington 5 0 1.000 -Cleveland 3 3 .500 .400 .'100 .000 Atlanta 2 3 Houston 2 3 New Orleans 0 6 Western Conference Midwest Division K.C.-Omaha 4 1 .800 Detroit . 3 2 .600 Chicago 2 4 .333 Milwaukee 1 4 .200 Pacific Division entucky Vew York at.

Louisiana Downs begins its first season Wednesday. Oaklawn, one of the most successful tracks in the country in recent years, opens its 50 day season Feb. 7, less than two weeks after Louisiana Downs closes its doors. Mickey Miller, director of public relations at Oaklawn, said Oaklawn officials do not believe Louisiana Downs will affect racing at Hot Springs. "The seasons don't overlap and there's no conflict in dates," he said. "If they have a good racing program down there, it should enhance interesl in thoroughbred racing Ihrough out the South. That will help Oaklawn. And if they don't have a good season, I can't see ho 1 that will affect us." Louisiana Downs, about 200 miles south of Hot Springs, has Monday's Game California at New York landers Tnesday's Games Buffalo at Washington Pittsburgh at Los Angeles Detroit at Vancouver St. Louis at Toronto aimed its preseason advertising at the Dallas-Fort Worth area along with other parts oE Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas.

"There's been races at Oaklawn 'or 70 years. It's well-eslajj- lished and nationally known as a fine track." AFTER NEWCOMERS John Riccitello, public relations director at Louisiana Downs, said the new track is also after people in the Bossier City area who have never seen a horse race. "And if they like what they e, thoroughbred racing has inerated another fan," he said. "And they'll go to Oaklawn later. I've heard a lot of people say we're going to hurt Oaklawn, tout nobody has ever given me any reasons." Is- RIVERSIDE, Calif.
