By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
With the parity in college basketball these days, any team can reasonably expect to beat any other team on any given night. But every team?
Well, it wasn’t quite that bad Thursday night, but the fallout will be felt in next week’s Top Twenty. The latest casualties included a pair of previously unbeaten teams, fifth-ranked Texas-El Paso and No. 13 Tulsa. Joining them in the loser’s circle were No. ll Oregon State and No. 17 Fresno State.
The only ranked teams to escape were eighth-ranked Nevada-Las Vegas, which crushed Pacific 117-78 in a Pacific Coast Athletic Association contest, and No. 9
UCLA, which trimmed Pac-10 rival California 76-54.
But UTEP succumbed to Colorado State 63-51 in a Western Athletic Conference game, Oregon State was surprised by Washington State 74-65 in Pac-10 action, Tulsa — the only Top Twenty team to lose at home — bowed to Illinois State 79-73 in a Missouri Valley Conference contest and Fresno State fell to UC-Irvine 63-57.
Junior center Mike Gray scored 14 of his 19 points in the second half as Colorado State handed Texas-El Paso its first setback of the season after 15 victories. The Rams used a tenacious defense and slow-paced attack in the first half to keep the powerful Miners at bay, although the score was tied at 23 at the intermission.
In the second half, Gray began his heroics, hitting a series of short jump shots against the smaller UTEP front
line. Colorado State, which had been horrible from the foul line this season, hit 20 of 26 free throws in the second half, including 18 of 24 in the final 6Vfc minutes.
Tony McAndrews called the triumph “the biggest win of my coaching career at Colorado State.”
Jeff Collins scored 24 points and Richie Adams added 18 in UNLV’s rout of Pacific. All ll players scored at least five points for the fast-breaking Rebels as Pacific suffered its worst PCAA loss ever. Collins, a 6-foot-2 guard, scored five times on slam dunks.
Center Stuart Gray scored 16 points and had a career-high 14 rebounds to lead UCI.A over California. UCLA has won 49 straight games from Cal beginning with the 1961 season.
Guard Chris Winkler scored 18 points and forward Ricky Brown added 17 to pace Washington State over Oregon State. Washington State led 53-51 with 6:04 left, but point guard Keith Morrison hit six free throws in the final two minutes to give the Cougars a cushion.
Guard Michael McKenny scored 26 points — 8-of-ll from the floor, 9-of-ll from the foul line — to help Illinois State stun Tulsa and take the lead in the MVC. The Redbirds are
now 12-3; Tulsa 15-1.
George Turner’s 17 points led UC-Irvine past Fresno State and three other Anteaters scored in double figures — Bob Thornton 15, Ben McDonald 13 and Todd Murphy IO. Irvine consistently pressured the ball, forcing 18 Fresno State turnovers.Scoreboard

John McHale, president and general manager of the Expos, says the 42-year-oid Rose, who is chasing Ty Cobb’s major-league record of 4,191 hits, will earn a reported $700,000, although McHale concedes the amount could surpass $1 million if the Expos win the World Series.

was slower than it might be.
Some of the other businessmen agreed with him. Howard Spandau said his Guadalupe Outpost grossed $85,000 last July, but only $58,000 in June.
Conceding that they might be willing to consider more early-summer promotion, most of the businessmen still said they were satisfied with the current winter-spring campaign, which at least keeps them operating during the winter months. Bob Henry differed.
‘‘I don’t care anything about the offseason business,” he said. He said the winter campaign targeted a hard-to-reach customer who would probably pay reduced rates when he got here. “We’re not making a whole lot of money on winter rentals.”
“You’d rather they’d go away?” said Eddie Temple, a Chamber of Commerce staff member.
“No. They pay your taxes and your utilities, and keep your pipes from freezing.” said Jeff Henry.
“We love our winter tourists, but we couldn’t make a living on them,” his father amended.
If the advertising schedule is going to be changed, Woodward warned they’d have to sell the idea to New Braunfels first. ‘“We’ve already got a lot of people that say you can walk across the river... over the tops of the tubers.”
Which brought up another of Bob Henry’s points: anti-tourist factions on the City Council and the Chamber of Commerce itself.
“Nobody is more pro-chamber than ms,” Henry stated. “I like the chamber, and I think Tom (Purdum) is a good manager. The trouble is,

Tom has more members that are anti-tourist than pro-tourist. He can’t come out for tourism without alienating a kit of people.”
Temple said he didn’t know which chamber members were anti-tourist.
The group agreed it might be a good idea to keep an eye on the city council, in case Henry was right about the rooin-tax increase.
Temple wanted to know which council members he should talk to about it. Bob Henry indicated they were all responsible, but Jeff got more specific.
“Betty l>ou Rushing would be for it in a New York minute. Barbara Tieken would be for it,” he said.
Both Rushing and Tieken indicated otherwise; Tieken, very emphatically.
Tieken told the HeraldZeitung she was aware of 1983 legislation that would allow the city to increase the room tax from four to seven percent. But the bill restricts the use of additional revenues to convention centers, maintenance and operation thereof and promotional programs directly related to the visitor industry.
Tieken has in the past pushed for giving a bigger share of the hotel-tax revenues to the arts. Since the new law specifies that any “extra” must go into tourist promotion, she said she would have no reason to favor any increase.
Bob Henry also contended that the arts community was behind the alleged move to up the tax, and feared that supporters could find a way around the law.
Woodward didn’t think so. He said the lobby group that promoted the law ‘“really had these people sit down and spell it out. The law is very clear.”
