Haywood Nets 22; In Indy Tonight By United Press International Despite Spencer Haywood living up to his advance notices] the Denver Rockets are off to a sputtering start in the American Basketball Association. Haywood, signed by the Rockets as a "hardship" case despite his having two years of college eligibility remaining, led Denver in scoring and rebounding for the second straight game Tuesday night, but the Rockets still suffered their, second loss. ' Dallas placed all five of its' starters in double figures to offset a 22-point, 26-rebound performance by Haywood as the Chaps defeated the Rockets, 120-108. Glen Combs led the Chaps in scoring with 25 points, followed SOUTH BEND, Ind. (UPI)-Mike McCoy, along.with size, strength^ speed and the ability to play football, also has .humility. The latter trait was displayed when he learned he had been named UPI Midwest Lineman of the week for his stellar performance in Notre Dame's 14-14 tie with Southern California Saturday. "Being lineman of the week is a real honor," he said, "but I want to share it with 10 other men. On defense no one man can do it all by himself, and. don't forget we have six sophomores starting." . McCoy, though, was the. key man in the. Irish defense, and the one Trojan coach John McKay- spotlighted in his game plan. "They have that McCoy in the line," he said, "and I don't know what-to do about him except run at him." After the game, McKay conceded he was right. "I'll be glad when that fellow graduates," he said. ."Nothing will make me happier. We could find a replacement � for O.J. Simpson, but. I don't think' anybody could find a replacement for McCoy." by Manny Leaks with 22, John Beasley with 21, Cincy Powell with 19 "and Ron Boone with 17. . In the only other ABA games, Kentucky beat Washington, 127- .115, and Los Angeles whipped :New Orleans, 119-99. Darel Carrier scored 33 points and teammate Gene Moore added 29 as the Colonels beat the Caps and evened their record at 1-1. Rick Barry was high scorer for. Washington with 20 points but fouled out with 3:22 left to play. Larry Miller got the Stars off to a quick start with 14 points in the first quarter and finished with 28 as Los Angeles raised its record to 3-1. Jimmy Jones paced the Bucs' attack, with 29. points. .,' McCoy's most notable achievement in the game came when he poured through the line to block a Southern Cali-.fornia punt arid set up- Notre Dame's recovery of the football on the Trojan seven and make the path' easy for the tying touchdown. But McCoy wouldn't take full. responsibility for the blocked punt either. "There are" three sophomores in the line with me," the 274-pound tackle said, "and because they did their jobs well | along with others on the punt formation, I was able to get loose. It clearly was a team effort." . : � . Print's play-them-one-at-a-time philosophy has been paying dividends since IU is at the top of the BIG Ten standings in a tie with Ohio State and Northwestern at 2-0. The Hoosier coach adopted the  new. outlook along with a rushing' offense and a policy which throws every starting position'open to the "best players" after two straight losses to non-conference foes California and Colorado. Pont told the Indianapolis Downtown  Quarterback Club luncheon, "I'm not concerned with what happens to the rest .of the Big Ten. I'm worried about Wisconsin 'this week." He said Wisconsin has chang- ed.."They, now have skill in the. backfield on. offense. They also have the'big line to go with it," Pont explained. At Wisconsin, IU also will play on Tartan Turf, a fact which doesn't-seem. to worry Pont. "We. will workout on the Indiana practice field and in the. mud. But the time, the playersi get to the fast track (Tartan Turf), they'll all think they're blazers," he quipped. .  The. Hoosiers are again to put the. new rushing game to use against the Badgers. Pont credited ' part of the Indiana success in the;first two conference encounters to the ground game. v "Indiana" has finally arrived," Pont said. "We now have a complete football team.. With the rushing potential, we'll be -able to throw the ball." He .said the switch was' prompted because "scoring had become too easy." The^Hoosier North Dakota State � \ � � � Continues In First Leads In Offense NEW YORK (UPI)-North . Dakota State continues to move steadily toward the small, college football title.

"We did gamble against Minnesota by running against one of the better defenses in the conference. The gamble was not as big as some people thought;" he explained. "The coaches believed in the players," Pont added. At times the Indiana offense appeared to sputter in the first half against Illinois Saturday, but Pont pinned the blame on Illini coach Jim Valek for "coaching too well. We had to change our offense against his 'monster' defense." . Pont interjected praise ' for both offense and defense in Saturday's play. He added he was also proud of the competitive spirit showed by the players . in. battling for the.. wide -open starting berths. "Every man is giving 100 per cent all-the time," he said.
