By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
When you think of college basketball powerhouses. Tennessee-C'hattanooga doesn’t usually come to mind, even though the Moccasins appear headed for their third straight M AA tournament with a full head of steam anda No franking.
Tile Moos won their 10th straight game Monday night with a 78-62 decision over crosstown rival Tennessee Temple. Four players scored in double figures for the Southern Conference regular-season champs, lid by Stanford Strickland with 13 points.
I (:• Southern Conference tournament is scheduled for March 10-12 at Charleston, W. Va. The Moos, 22-3 after winning 16 of their last 17 games, will be solid favorites in the tourney, where the winner gets an automatic
bid to the NCAA tournament. But Coach Murray Arnold isn’t playing it cozy.
“You earn an automatic conference bid in three days,” he said. “The other one you earn in three months.
“If we should lose in the conference tournament, we would hope to get an at-large bid to the NCAA. At this point, we certainly don’t have one wrapped up. There are an awfully lot of good basketball teams out there.”
And the Mocs seem to be one of them. On Monday, they made The Associated Press Top 20 for the first time since the school moved up from Division II in 1977.
Against Temple, Chris McCray and Skip Clark each had 12 points and Willie White added IO.
The only other ranked teams in action Monday were Metro Conference powers
Louisville and Memphis State. The Cardinals, ranked third, downed Murray State 66-58, while No. 17 Memphis State beat Cincinnati 84-
As usual, according to louisville Coach Denny Crum, the Cardinals played poorly at home, although not poorly enough to lose to 19-6 Murray State.
"If you don’t come mentally ready to play, you don’t play well,’’ said Crum, whose team is 25-3. “We missed some shots we don’t usually miss. We just weren’t sharp.”
Milt Wagner was sharp enough in the second half, hitting for 20 of his game-high 22 points. Wagner keyed an 11-2 spurt that pushed louisville from a 31-29 deficit to a 40-33 lead.
Keith Ioe scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for Memphis State, 20-5. Bobby
Parks chipped in with 25 points and ll rebounds. Dwight Jones scored 29 points and pulled down 13 rebounds for Cincy.
In the only post-season conference tournament action, St.Peter’s edged Fairfield 70-67 in the first round of the Metro Atlantic Conference play as Tommy Best and Shelton Gibbs each scored 24 points. St. Peter’s next meets Fordham.
Elsewhere, it was Providence 72. Pittsburgh 69; St. Bonaventure 68, Rutgers 66 in overtime; Furman 65, Virginia Military 64; Lousiana State 91, Florida 87; New Orleans 83, Middle Tennessee 67; South Carolina 79, Florida State 76; Vanderbilt 71, Georgia 70; Tulsa 61, Illinois State 59 in overtime; Western Carolina 92, Davidson 74; Drake 75, New Mexico State 73; Evansville 83, Detroit 81 in
OT; Oklahoma City 60, St. Louis 55; Long Island 77, Baltimore 68;Texas AAM 96, Texas 59; Colorado State 70, San Diego State 55; Hawaii 56, Air Force 55, and Mary Washington IOO, St. Mary’s, Md., 69.
St. Bonaventure was a winner in overtime when Mike Sheehey grabbed an inbounds pass and canned an 18-footer at the buzzer, snapping Rutgers' nine-game winning streak.
Evansville also won in overtime after blowing a 10-point lead in the final three minutes of regulation. John Worth scored six of his 26 points in the extra period.
Tulsa also need an extra period to subdue Illinois State. Ricky Ross scored on a layup with four seconds remaining. Illinois State held the ball for the first 44 minutes of the overtime before missing a shot Tulsa then held the ball until Ross connected

Houston's Knepper eager to atone for last season
COCOA, Fla. (AP) — Houston Astros pitcher Bob Knepper is clicking his heels to get started with the 1983 season to make amends for a disappointing 1982 season when he dipped to a 5-15 record.
Knepper spent the off season in an aerobics dance and exercise class that has him in the best shape he can remember.
“I’ve never come here in such good condition," said Knepper, a National league All-Star in 1981.
“The only way I could be in better shape is if I had run 30 sprints a day until I passed out. I think a special aerobics program could be designed for baseball players."
In addition to getting into shape. Knepper said the class also gave him a chance to laugh at himself.
“It’s good for a man to be able to laugh at himself, especially an athlete," Knepper said. “We never get to laugh at ourselves because we’re perfect.’”
Knepper doesn’t know if he will .succeed in changing his image as a stoic personality that leaves the impression he does not care about his performance.
"When I’m pitching good the word is unflappable,’ and that means good." Knepper said. “When I’m pitching bad. it’s said He doesn’t care because he doesn’t scream and throw his glove on the ground.’ It’s even said because I’m a Christian, I don’t care.”
After two seasons with the Astros, Knepper has experienced the best and worst of times. He was a National I,eague All-Star in 1981 only to tumble to a 5-15 record last season.
“I do care," Knepper said I care so much that
last year, while reading how calm I am, I was letting a lot of little things upset me I couldn’t handle the situation and it did bother me."
