(AP) Quarterbacks Rick Leach of Michigan and Chuck Fusina of Penn State were elected to the American Football Coaches Association All-America team in the first tie vote in 10 years. "The voting was simply too close to call," said AFCA president Carmen Cozza of Yale. "Both Leach and Fusina are great players and great leaders. They both clearly are All-Americans." The only previous tie vote involved quarterbacks Bobby Douglass of Kansas and Terry Hanratty of Notre Dame in 1968. The dual selection all but overshadowed the selection of the nation's three premier running backs; Heisman Trophy winner Billy Sims of Oklahoma, Charles White of Southern California and Charles Alexander of LSU, the only offensive player to repeat as an Ail-American. SIMS RECEIVED THE most individual votes ana became Rounding out the offensive team are center Jim Ritcher of North Carolina State, guards Pat Howell of Southern California and Greg Roberts of Oklahoma, tackles Kelvin Clark of Nebraska and Keith Dorney of Penn State, tight end Kellen Winslow of Missouri and split end Gordon Jones of Pittsburgh. Linebacker Jerry Robinson of UCLA, the leading defensive vote-getter, was the only repeater on the coaches' defensive team. Also chosen were linebackers Bob Golic of Notre Dame and Tom Cousineau of Ohio State, a defensive backfield of Henry Williams of San Diego State, Jeff Nixon of Richmond and-Johnny Johnson of Texas, and a defensive line of Don Smith of Miami, Fla., Dan Hampton of Arkansas, Mike Bell of Colorado State, Bruce Clark of Penn State and Al Harris of Arizona State. N. Zealand ruggers hook Britons NEWPORT, Wales (UPI) Bruce Robertson, Eddie Dunn and Dave Loveridge scored tries as the New Zealand rugby union team downed Monmouthshire, 26-9, Wednesday in a penalty-ridden match played in freezing temperatures. The All Blacks, who have already beaten Wales, Ireland and England, have now gone 700 minutes without conceding a try on their 18-match British tour- face Scotland Dec.9 hoping for their first-ever Grand A victories in Britain. U-M cagers play host to Central in opener University of Michigan basketball coach Johnny Orr will take his squad into its season opener against Central Michigan Thursday night with confidence in his front line and a wary eye on the backcourt. Prior to Wednesday's final preseason practice, Orr didn't know who his starting guards would be for the 8 p.m. tipoff in sold-out Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor. Veteran backcourt ace Tom Staton has been suffer-, ing from a bronchial condition and was a questionable starter for the No. 8-ranked Wolverines. Dartmouth QB player of year HANOVER, N.H. (UPI) Quarterback Buddy Teev- ens, whose pinpoint passing led Dartmouth to the 1978 Ivy League title, was named Wednesday as winner of the Asa Bushnell Cup as the league's player of the year. Teevens, a senior co-cap tain from Pembroke, Mass., set three Dartmouth passing records and two Ivy marks in leading the Big Green to a 6-1 league record. He won by a wide margin over Cornell tailback Joe Holland and Yale end John Spagnola in balloting by the Ivy League coaches. Teevens set school records for most passes attempted in a season (194), completions (117) and passing yardage (1,396). His three-year com pletion average of .542 and his 618 average for 1978 were Ivy records. There's no question about the front court, though. A BIGGER and stronger Phil Hubbard will make his return to the pivot position after missing all of last season , with a knee injury. The knee has given Hubbard no problems in practice. Joining him on the front line will be swift Mike McGee, who carried the U-M scoring load as a freshman last season, and freshman Thad Garner, an extraordinary jumper who has taken a starting spot away from veteran Alan Hardy. The Wolverines will be facing a CMU squad which has twice been tested under, fire, most recently in a 71-54 loss to No. 7 Michigan State at East Lansing Monday night. The Chippewas(l-I) were the preseason favorite to cap ture the Mid-American Con ference crown, but they've had some problems on offense thus far. SENIOR forward, Jeff Tropf (6-feet-8) and senior guard Dave Grauzer are the nucleus of the Chippewas' at taok, but coach Dick Parfittis still looking for someone to take charge in the pivot. Junior Larry Sweeney is in the middle now, but he's averaging just five points and 4'2 rebounds a game not the kind of punch Parfitt would like to see. Orr's bunch likes to run, and Parfitt's squad has an effective delay game all of which should make an interesting confrontation to get things started at Crisler.
