Bucks suffer setback By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It takes a lot of effort to out- play Lew Alcindor, but Balti- more centre Wes Unseld not only did it but found time to be playmaker, too. Unseld turned in game-high totals of 25 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists as the Bullets walloped Alcindor and Milwau- kee Bucks 127-97 Wednesday night. It was only the Bucks fourth loss in 25 National Bas- ketball Association games. Unseld, who hit his first seven shots for the Bullets, who lead the Eastern Conference's Cen- tral Division, had to share his scoring high with team-mate Jack Marin, who also notched 25.

More and more stickhandlers are attending college in their spare time and others are entering the NHL via university. One of the most esoteric personalities In pro hockey is New York Banger defenseman Arnie Brown. I discovered this one afternoon over lunch at Brown's house on suburban Long Island. "On tlie whole the image of a hockey player is chang- said Arnie, serving a goblet of a light Chablis. "Mainly, it's because everyone is becoming more worldly, more aware. Years ago, for example, a fellow would come to New York, play his hockey and go home. Now we're taking advantage of the city." Arnie and his charming wife Sandra a native of Connecticut are playgoers who seek out fine restaurants the way Walter Tkaczuk chases the puck in the corners. :'The Great White Hope" was one of their favorite plays. While Arnie nibbled at a tunafish salad, I wondered whether an overdose of intellect is a burden to a profes- sional hockey player. Brown said he didn't think so. "Over-thinking about hockey doesn't he ex- plained. "For one thing you have to think about your mis- takes and strive lo improve yourself. Of course, when things aren't going well there could be a tendency to analyze too much; and that might hurt your game. Before I was married I used to worry a lot about my game. But then my thoughts were directed: ONLY to hockey. Since I've been married my life has taken on many branches; I direct my thoughts elsewhere." We sat down and relaxed on the couch. Conversation comes naturally and easily to Brown, as natural and easy as his skating, and it would seem that a decade from now when his career is over, he'd make an excellent public re- lations man. He insisted that I have a dram of Drambuie and the conversation turned to fighting on ice. "When I broke in with Arnie remembered, "I was taught the grabbing, clutching game and I never really questioned it either. But I've changed and I've learned. One thing I learned is that you can't take on the whole league. There's no way you'll do it and survive. "I know there are some who can shut off their minds and make the game completely physical. Well, it is a physi- cal game but if you can add intelligence to the physical part of it you're ahead. When you come down to it hockey is an art, a skill, not an animalistic, brutal kind of thing." I've often wondered what the thinking-man's hockey player thinks about tba hurried questions tossed at him in the dressing room after the game. "fn a Arnie explained, "it reminds me of when I went backstage to meet Johnny Cash at the Garden. He had just a few minutes to change and go out again and all he could do was shake my hand, say 'nice to see you' and then get out. It's something like the confrontation of an athlete and a newspaperman after a game. It's tough to get the real feel of the person. And it's tough for the hockey player to be at ease right after a game. "The post-game scene is a very forced situation but I try to put myself in the position of the reporter. He's trying to write a story and if I was in his shoes I'd no doubt be asking the same questions and doing the same things, al- most." He got up and returned with a bottle of Galliana, a yellow-colored Italian liqueur and recommended it highly. I asked him what questions he'd like a reporter to ask that normally aren't thrown at him. "During a game you get a situation when the puck might jump over your stick and the fans don't understand why; well, they might ask how come that happened and how it might have changed the game." Combining a university education with a 78-game (plus playoffs) schedule running from Septtember to May is next to impossible but Arnie has been picking up the odd credits and now has the equivalent of slightly more than a year's worth of college courses. At the moment not sure what he's going to do with it. "One thing I AM sure he said, "is that I'm not going to be a school teacher. I find they live in a closed organization which they never grow out of. They're too clannish for me." At the moment there's no need for Arnie Brown to think about any career but hockey. With that in mind I asked him how he views himself in the shinny spectrum. For a starter he discussed the Arnie Brown in the dressing room after the game. "I feel I'm not going to overreact, say, Just because I score two goals. la other words I don't want to put on a show for somebody asking me a question." And Arnie Brown, the intellect? "There are all types of personalities in this game. You can't say a hockey player should have a certain plane of intelligence. One should never put oneself above anybody else on those grounds." And, finally, how would Arnie Brown describe Arnie Brown if lie were a reporter "An enthusiastic player; someone who loves Hie game; who trios to play it to the best of his ability at all times. One who can play like an Ail-Star, who can play a ntedi- ocre game, who is sometimes bad. but who's always trying." As I was saying, It was delightful lunch1 with helluva good man. Dugiiid wins second game TORONTO (CP) _ National champion Don Ditguid of Win- nipeg made it two straight wins in the CBC-TV's double-knock- out championship curling matches Wednesday with a 9-4 win over Swedish champion Tom Schaeffer, In the only other game, Ron Northcott of Calgary slaycd in contention for the in prizes, nipping Bud Sunimcr- ville of Superior, Wis., G-5 lifter losing his opening-round match Tuesday, Meanwhile, the Southern Al- berta High School League is back in action with a full slate of games following last week- end's Lethbridge Collegiate tournament. Teams taking part in the gals tourney include two from Leth- bridge, the Labor Club and Uni- versity Chinooks, Calgary Mount Royal Community Col- lege, Ked Deer Community College, Camrose Lutheran College, Edmonton CJCAf Uni- versity of Alberta Pandas and Fincher Creek.

LCI Invitational tournamen last weekend will travel to Medicine Hat to revenge their setback. In Cardston the Cougars wil host the Magrath Zeniths who displayed their talents in pick ng up the consolation trophy in he LCI tourney while the ok rivals, the CCHS Cougars and Rams will meet head-on n the LCI gymnasium. After losing their own tourna- ment by three points the Rams will be out to put everything together again and hope to give another fine performance. The Cougars on the other land picked up a 39-35 win over the Cranbrook High School and feel things are shaping up, Dean Dahl coach of the Coug- ars feels that the Rams have an edge over his ball club, in tht the Rams have played six games to their two. The additional experience along with the Rams confidence after dumping the Comets wil make a Cougar victory that much tougher. The main thing his ball club las going for them is the height differential. Dahl has wo six foot, three inch for- fards in his line-up who he topes will control the back- wards. If this should be the :ase a good ball game will be a store for all the fans. Game time is slated for eight 'clock with a B boys game rior to it starting at ANDY CAPP Triple crown?
