Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 12, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Creighton's Cagers Join Top Twenty SPWI, A week ago, Creighton Uni- versity couldn't evea be found in that basement category known as "Others receiving votes." Today, the Bluejays from Omaha, Neb., are living in (he high-rent disjrict known as The Associated Press College Basketball Poll. They may not be up there with perennial penthouse dweller UCLA or up on Nob Hill where North Carolina State, Notre Dame, North Carolina and the rest of those high-rollers reside. Creighton is No. 17, one of three new members in the elite Top Twenty. But while the Blue- jays bounded into the listing without so much as a stopover among the 19lh- ranked Utah and No. 20 Arizona came out of that alphabetical, non-numerical pack. Creighton achieved its lofty perch and knocked Marquette from the No. 6 rung to No. 9 by upsetting the Warriors 75-69 last Saturday. The feat brought the Bluejays' record to 184 and brought them 40 points in the voting by The AP's nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters. In the "so what else is new? category, UCLA retained the No. 1 berth. The Bruins, who flattened Oregon's Ducks 84-66, then got shook by Oregon State's busy Beavers before pre- vailing 80-75 to raise their record to 18-1, garnered all but one of the 50 first-place votes for 998 points.

Carl Lindemann Jr., vice president of NBC Sports, said the early telecast was scheduled to give viewers a chance to see Aaron break Babe Ruth's ca- reer home run record. Aaron has 713 home runs, one short of the record. The game, between the Atlan- ta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers, will be blacked out in the Atlanta and Los Angeles viewing areas, Lindemann said.

Final Coe HomeTil-h Coe college's 1973-74 wrestling and basketball squads will make their final home appear- ances this weekend in a flurry of activity in conjunction with the school's first winter home- coming. Coach Marcus Jackson's cagers will entertain Carleton Friday and St. .Olaf Saturday in a pair of Moray Eby Mdhouse tilts. Athletic Director Barrim Bremner's grapplers will take to same floor Saturday af- iernOon for season-ending dual encounters with St. Olaf at 1 and Carleton at There will be no charge for either mat event. Each of the two Kohawk squads will have four seniors making their final appearances lefore the home fans. For the wrestlers, the quartet vill include Cedar Rapids Prai- rie's Andy Fairlie and Jack Spore, Northbrook's. (111.) Ken Procter and Emporia State ;Kan.) transfer Tim Essex. Fairlie, three-fame Midwest conference titlist at 158 pounds, will enter Saturday's competition with a 43-4 dual and 87-10 overall record at Coe. The four senior cagers are starters Ed McFalls, Fran Rohl- man and Steve Ullrick and re- serve Bob Knutson. Ullrick, a I.R. Jeff product, transferred to Coe last year from Kirkwood. McFalls, a three-year starter Tom Chicago, is currently Coe's .bird-ranking all-tune scorer and with a 21-plus average still has a shot at surpassing >fo. 2 scorer Ron Barnes' career ,otal of points. McFalls, who scored 24 points against Monmouth and 25 against Knox last weekend, now las career points. Rohlman, track and cage star rom Streator, 111., joined Mc- 'alls in the starting lineup last 'ear as the Kohawks swept to a 24-1 season and NCAA tourney icrlb.

But when it was all over, Iowa's pitiful school record of eight straight defeats was shat- tered, and Purdue was knocked out of a share of the Big Ten lead with Michigan. "We're not out of it said Fred Schaus, the former West Virginia and L.A. Lakers coach who directs the Boilers (now 7-2 to Michigan's 8-1 and Indiana's "But it will be tougher. Now we'll have to beat Michigan and In- diana on the road if we hope to win the title." Although Iowa fieldhouse has seen three-overtime games be- fore, no one could remember one in which each of the extra periods was forced by a field goal just before the horn: Ken- drick's in regulation time, Thompson's in the first over- time and Nichols in the second. Thank goodness for Wasbing- ton, who rammed in his rebound with a long eight seconds to go. Nate scored 10 points and got all of them in the overtimes. Purdue's press almost changed "The Great Escape" plot. Iowa had a 10-point lead at 78-68 on Collins' last field goal with left in regula- tion. Then the Boilers went to work, r a 111 i n g ithe too-tight Hawks .with their pressure.
