Eleven years later he resum- ed play and by had won his first woild crown which he re- gained this year.

It was not love at first sight, but the slender 6-toot-a forward has won the hearts of Chicago Bulls' fans over the last three National Basketball Association seasons. Love wowed the Chicago par- tisans Tuesday night, pumping in 40 points and leading the Dulls to a 115-99 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Elsewhere in the NBA, Port- land Trailblazcrs outlasted De- troit Piston 131-130 in overtime, Boston Celtics whipped New York Knieks 105-37, Milwaukee Bucks overwhelmed Seattle Su- perSonics 110-83, Buffalo Braves trocnced Cincinnati Royals 115- ,and Atlanta Hawks edged Golden State Warriors 116-113. In the American Basketball Association, it was: Dallas 113, Virginia 103; Pittsburgh 122, Carolina 102; Indiana 119, New York 114, and Floridians 107, Denver 105. Love, a henchwarmcr in his early NBA days with Cincinnati and Milwaukee and in his first half season with Chicago, finally earned a starting job in the 19o9-70 season and averaged 21 points a game. Last season, ho was even tetter, raising his av- erage to 25.2.' Against the Cavaliers, he was devastating, connecting on 16 field goals and eight of 10 free throws. Cleveland fell apart in (he fourth period, missing its first 17 shots while dropping be- hind 106-88 after leading 8S-81. Jolm Johnson topped the Cava- liers with 25 points. Portland's victory, accom- plished despite a career high 44 points by D c t r o i t's Jimmy Walker, enabled the Trailbla- zcrs to end an 11-game road los- ing streak. Stan M c K e n i e scored six points for Portland in overtime, including two free throws with five seconds left. February draft NEW YORK (AP) The Na- tional Football League's annual draft of college seniors will be held in New York City Spin- ning Feb. 1, the league an- nounced Tuesday. The teams will draft in in- verse order of their won-lost percentage during the regular season, except (hat the winner of Ihe Super Bowl will draft last and (he loser of the Super Bowl will draft next to last. Coin flips will be used to break any lies Unit exi.sf. Two other isTL meetings for 1972 also have been scheduled annual mooring of UK owners in Honolulu beginning March 20 and the spring session of Hie annual meeting, sched- uled for New York Cily, begin- ning May 22. the Blues in respectable conten- tion. Which was more Ilian could be said for some nf Ihe financial figures voiced in the reports that Bobby Hull, the Golden Jet of Chicago Black Hawks, and flamboyant Derek Sanderson of Boston Bruins had been talking with spokesmen for franchises in the WIIA which begins opera- tions nest October. TALKED TO Hl'LJ, Ben Hatskin. owner of Winni- peg Jets franchise in tlio fledg- ling league, said Tuesday he has the WIIA rights to Hull and spoke with the Hawks winger in Vancouver last weekend. Hatskin said he offered Ihe 32-year-old superstar a mil- lion five-year contract to break his NHL ties. He said there would be further discussions in Toronto Ihis weekend when the Black Hawks play the Maple Leafs. Hull's agent in Chicago, Har- vey Weinberg, said after hear- ing the report he was unaware of any meetings "and if Bobby had received such an offer I as- sume he would have spoken lo me about it." Hull was unavailable for com- ment. Sanderson, however, who has expressed disenchantment with the lengthy NHL schedule and talked earlier in the season of retirement, was ready to dis- cuss the WHA's efforts to lure him to the Miami franchise. REPORTS CALL "A fellow from Miami called me and made me an interesting said Sanderson of. the Monday phone call. He declined to give a definite figure, but said the offer was "a lot more" than on a two-year con- tract. The WHA plans lo start with 10 teams, recruiting many ot its players from the 14-tcam NHL which has announced expansion plans of its own, with new fran- chises earmarked for Long Is- land, N.Y., and Atlanta next year. "Boston and the Bruins have been good to said Sander- son. "I don't want to leave. "If I ever have to make a de- cision, I'd go first to Woston Adams Sr. (chairman of the board of Bruins) and talk it over with him. Afler all, he's been my boss since I was a kid in junior hockey (at Niagara Hatskin explained the WHA's draft system, saying that each of the 10 clubs placed four es- tablished NHLcrs on their nego- tiation lists at a meeting 10 days ago. WON'T NAME THEM He said he wouldn't disclose who the other three players on his list were. He added that the full WHA draft next month will work the same as the NHL's junior each club rights to certain players and preventing other league teams from tampering with those play- ers. Detroit winger Guy Charron was to undergo surgery today to correct a facial bone fracture that Red Wing doctors said was not healing properly. Charron suffered the injury Nov. in a game against Mont- real Canadiens who were also hurting. Yvan Coumoyer was listed as a doubtful starter against the Wings tonight. The speedy winger suffered bruised ribs a week ago against Los Angeles. Coumoyer, who missed Satur- day's game against Vancouver, tried to skate Tuesday but had to leave after a short turn. Other games tonight have Minnesota North Stars invading Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens. New York Rangers at Chicago Black Hawks, Los Angeles en- tertaining Boston Bruins and California Golden Seals at Pitts- burgh Penguins. Meanwhile dcfenccman Barry Wilkins of the Canucks .suffered a shoulder separation Tuesday. The 24-year-old Toronto-torn Wilkins was carled lo the dress- ing room just before Ihe final whistle after crashing info the boards in the Vancouver end, with a little help from St. Louis forward Jack Egcrs. He is expected to be out of the lineup for at least six weeks. There was no penalty on the incident, and Wilkins didn't blame anybody but himself. He said he was just trying to hit his man and "I just hit him the wrong way." There was no word from Lay- coe about a replacement for Wilkins. Vancouver general manager Hud Poilo, who was in Boston Tuesday night lo wateli the Canucks' Rochester farm club, is expected back in Van- couver Thursday. VANCOUVER 1, ST. LOUIS 1 first Pnrirvl I.
