"The fact that we are 8Vz games behind the Bulls does not put us out of the said Milwaukee coach Larry Costello. "We've still got nearly 10 games with members of our Midwest Division, and if we can't win those games then we can only blame ourselves." But the Bucks took another step backwards Friday night, Bench marries model CINCINNATI (AP) Cincinnati Reds' catcher Johnny Bench and blonde model Vickie Chesser were married Friday night in Cincinnati. Nearly persons crammed into Christ Episcopal Church for the ceremony while another 300 spectators lined the sidewalk for a glimpse of the wedding party. Sports figures and entertainers were among the guests. The whirlwind romance which cap- tivated baseball-mad Cincinnati, began at Christmas when Bench invited the former beau- ty queen to meet him in Las Vegas. "A lot of people thought I'd never get Bench said, "and they said the same thing about her. I guess we're just a couple of castoffs getting together." Bob Hope, Bobby Goldsboro and Jonathan Winters were on the in- vitation list for the gala reception.

It was the first time the Bulls, Midwest Division leaders, had toppled Milwaukee this season after four losses. "This means we should win our Chicago coach Dick Motta said. "I realize Milwaukee has to play rookies in its back court, but they still have the greatest player in the game and can go to him any time they want to, so they're still a threat." The Bucks went to their big centre, Kareem Abdul- Jabbar, but he could only score 20 points against Chicago's Nate Thurmond. LOVE LEADS CHICAGO Bob Love pumped in 29 points to lead Chicago, while Gary Brokaw matched Abdul- Jabbar's 20-point output for Milwaukee.
