soon heard the I didnt see reported Greg but I caught word of Echoed Danny Manning I wish Id seen Oklahoma no doubt wished it hadnt seen The 611 sophomore was the ringleader in what coach Larry Brown called as good a road win as Ive ever been involved Manning finished with 25 all but five in the second mainly because Brown sat Mann ing down for the last 8M minutes of the first half after hed picked up his second That was a long Mann ing conceded but I think it worked to my I was watching the game and coach was telling me things I needed to and I just went out and did Brown had the luxury of being able to sit Manning down because the Jayhawks were able to main tain a It shrank to one with KU claims 2 rating in AP poll By the Associated Press Kansas has moved up one more notch in the

something about the other Would Brown have reinserted Manning if the Sooners had snatch ed the lead If I thought we were in jeopar dy of losing the KU coach I would have con sidered Kansas never did lose even when the Sooners forged ties of 47 and 53 in the se cond Each KU respond ed and grabbed a fourpoint That margin would grow to as many as eight before Oklahomas last With Darryl Kennedys threepoint play squeez ed KUs advantage to Moments Manning answered with a pair of bonus and Hunter added a layup off the break at for another sevenpoint bulge No doubt Kansas won its 27th game in 30 tries at the foul The Jayhawks made 23 of 27 including eight of nine in the last minute and a Oklahoma struggl meshing eight of 17 foul THEY MISSED some free Brown and for tunately we made some big free Backtoback turnovers had helped OU creep to within three after Kennedys threepoint but Brown couldnt We didnt execute down the stretch the way I said but it was a tremendous That it was considering the Sooners had not lost a game here since the last team to win here was Kansas an 8777 victory fueled by Calvin Thompsons 30 a freshman then and now a settled for 12 points Monday This win means a lot to Thompson said We have to play to and were playing good all five KU starters scored in double Kellogg had Dreiling 16 and Hunter 10 to go with Thompsons dozen and Mannings A glaring individual was Dreilings 15 re Thats a career high for the 71 Ive been in a mild he but Ron Kellogg said this was Game and thats my number so I guess something was in the Up in the air in smoke was Oklahomas seemingly endless home The Sooners had plenty of vocal from their largest crowd of the season I thought we had one of the all time great crowds here for this said a disappointed OU coach Billy Were sorry we let the fans down We never could seem to get over the Kansas trailed only twice each time by a single point in the first We never let the game get out of hand that was the big said We didnt get in a rat See Jayhawks on page 13 IAP photo Kansas Greg Dreiling 30 and Danny Manning defend against Oklahomas Ron Roberts during Monday nights game in The Jayhawks ended the Sooners

growing like a hybrid musk the Big Eight Conference has been stuck in an alternating cyclical In evennumbered years 1982 and 1984 two Big Eight teams were selected for NCAA in oddnumbered years 1983 and 1985 three schools from the Big Eight were invited to go for the NCAAs postseason By that means two Big Eight teams will be tabbed when the NCAA Selection Committee meets and divulges its 64team field a week from Looks good now for the trend to doesnt it After Kansas and Oklahoma come merely pretenders hoping against hope to be nothing at least one man expects the Big Eight to send not two but FOUR schools into the Not that man is Big Eight commissioner Carl ILL BE disappointed if four dont get James told Based on the quality of schedules and quality of four of our teams should receive And I think six in all should be under consideration for some post season In other four in the NCAA and another two in the National In vitation James is discounting only Colorado and Oklahoma State like a good he did not Chuck Woodling KSUs Hartman says reasons for quitting misunderstood KANSAS AP Jack Hartman says the reason for his pending retirement has been When I announced my retirement on 30 it was not because of problems in col lege Hartman said Monday during the Big Eight coaches telephone conference It was just a then it came out in all the stories that that was one of the strong reasons I got I was very disappointed about We all realize there are things in major college athletics that give us But that would apply to almost any profession or and I think were making great strides in those Hartman was like every other coach polled Monday on what it is he enjoys about being a col lege The question seem ed in order because of the rash of firings and retirements which have swept through the What I liked about college coaching was the onfloor work with the kids and the Hartman Johnny Orr of Iowa State says if he did not enjoy he would find another I ENJOY being with the players every coaching watching them do the things in games that you think they can he And competing against guys like Moe Iba and Larry pit ting your team against their Thats the great thing about college Orr admits there are some negative such as high pressure But even that can be fun if you get a guy you he Theres no question that it has changed a Two coaches who might not figure to be having exactly a rollicking good time are Paul Hansen and Tom a popular figure with players and coaches as well as the has been told he will not See Coaches on page 13 Four Big Eight teams half the league in the NCAAs Come This isnt the ACC or the Big after Im an James I think we have the caliber of teams and coaches of any conference in the After hearing Al McGuire say and nothing Al McGuire says makes me fall out of my chair anymore there will be seven ACC teams in the NCAA tourna ment if they have we surely rate Perhaps James is inflicted with a slight case of ACC paranoia hav ing come to the Big Eight from Maryland he was athletic direc tor there nearly six years Then he may simply be what hes supposed to the Big Eights biggest Maybe the Big Eight will have four teams in the NCAAs for the first And perhaps six schools in all wont have to deflate their basketballs after the conference NOT THAT Kansas fans care that much about how many of the Jayhawks victims will add of the NCAAs money apiece to the conference exche KU boosters want to know if the Jayhawks will be assigned to the Midwest Regional either Minneapolis 01 Dayton for starters with the opportunity of advancing to Kemper site of the Midwest Nobody of but right now I like the Jayhawks they might even wind up as the 1 seed in the especially after Monday nights satisfying victory at One sure of is to win the Big Eights
