(AP) — Jerry Reuss put on an impressive performance on the mound — and at the plate — as the lx)s Angeles Dodgers trounced the Houston Astros 14-4 in an exhibition baseball game. Reuss pitched seven innings Tuesday and hit three singles. The Dodgers took a 4-0 lead off losing pitcher Joe Niekro, but the Astros tied the game by the bottom of the third inning. By ASSOCIATED PRESS Ralph Sampson is taking them one at a time in his pursuit of one of the few things to elude him in his brilliant college basketball career—a national championship. Sampson and the fourth-ranked Virginia Cavaliers meet the fast-flying Eagles of No.ll Boston College in the West Regional semifinals at Ogden, Utah, when the NCAA Tournament resumes Thursday night. One slip and the 7-foot-4 Sampson’s college career — he is a three-time All-American — will be over. That is why Sampson is throwing around the old bromide about playing them one ate time. “I probably thought about that once,” Sampson says when asked about the stigma of never having won a national championship. “I try and think about what I have to do Thursday to get the job done to get to Saturday.” Coach Terry Holland, however, concedes his towering center may be feeling some pressure. ‘‘It’s his last turn around and, fair or not, that's the way people will label him for the rest of his life,” Holland says. ‘‘It’s definitely going to be tense because it’s that time of year when you have to win one game or you’re out, and nobody wants to go back home,” says Sampson. Utah and No. 16 North Carolina State are paired in the other West semifinal. Thursday’s other action is in the Mideast Regional at Knoxville, Term., where second-ranked Louisville meets No.9 Arkansas and fifth-ranked Indiana faces No.12 Kentucky. On Friday, in the East Regional at Syracuse, N.Y., third-ranked St. John’s meets Georgia and eighth-ranked North Carolina, the defending NCAA champion, plays Ohio State. And in the Midwest Regional at Kansas City, Mo., top-rated Houston plays No.17 Memphis State and No.13 Villenova tackles Iowa. The regional winners advance to the Final Four in Albuquerque, N.M., April 2-4. Sampson says Virginia must play better than it did last weekend in a 52-49 victory over Washington State, a game in which Sampson was held without a field goal in the second half. “We have to rebound the basketball, run the break and play defense inside the lane and outside the lane and not give up easy shots,” Sampson says.‘T’m going to be hard on myself and the team anyway because I think we can play better always.” Besides Virginia, the two other Atlantic Coast Conference teams in the tournament — North Carolina and North Carolina State — are still alive. The Wolfpack of N.C. State are bidding to become the Cinderella team. First, they knocked off North Carolina and Virginia on succesive days to capture the ACC tourney. In the tournament, they nipped Pepperdine 69-67 in double overtime and sixth-ranked Nevada-Las Vegas 71-70. ‘‘I’ve been waiting four years for this,” a senior engineering major shouted from the midst of the throng during the latest demonstration in Raleigh on Sunday night. ‘‘Four years." After trailing by as many 12 points in the second half, N.C. State came back again. Thurl Bailey grabbed a missed shot and scored with four seconds left, handing UNLV only its third loss of the season. ‘‘When we were down 12,1 just told the kids not to quit,” said Coach Jim Valvano. ‘‘I told ’em that when we do some ‘smart’ things at the end, something good usually happens.” North Carolina expected to have its hands full with Syracuse on the Orangemen’s home court, but Ohio State altered that with a 79-74 upset of the Orangemen. “Some of you were talking about playing Syracuse at Syracuse — that’s why you should never discuss some game that won’t come about,” North Carolina Coach Dean Smith said Tuesday. Smith said the Buckeyes will provide problems because of the quickness of guards Ron Stokes and Troy Taylor, who account for almost 22 points per game, while 6-foot-7 forward Tony Campbell leads the team with a 19.1 average. “I don’t think anybody is quicker than Stokes and Taylor,” Smith said. “Campbell is All-Big Ten and we think that he's just a tremendous player. If we can play defense as well as we did last Saturday (in a 68*49 victory over James Madison), then that will go a long way to helping us. Everybody I’ve talked to says they’re a better team than they were last year.”GOLFERS ANNOUNCING OPENING!!!! NEW BRAUNFELS DRIVING RANGE LOCATION HWY. 46W - MILE BEYOND LOOP 337FOR DETAILS PROFESSIONAL GOLF INSTRUCTION & EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE Evert-Lloyd to face Garrison NEW YORK (AP) - Chns Evert Lloyd, intent on regaining her spot as No. I in the world in women's tennis, begins a major push tonight when she takes on Zina Garrison in the first round of the $350,000 Virginia Slims Championships of New York Lloyd, seeded second, lost the No. I spot to top seed Martina Navratilova last year, although she captured her sixth U.S. Open singles title and defeated Navratilova in the final to annex her first Australian Open crown The select 16-player field at Madison Square Garden will get underway when Sylvia Hamka of West Germany meets Kathy Rinaldi, who will turn 16 on Thursday.

Wendy Turnbull of Australia against Barbara Potter and Billie Jean King against Andrea Jaeger. Goolagong, who has captured Wimbledon twice, received a wild-card entry into the invitational tournament The others are the top 15 players on the Women's Tennis Association computer Although Navratilova is heavily favored to capture her fifth title this year — she won the Virginia Slims’ stops at Washington, Houston, Chicago and Dallas, the only multiple winner in the first seven tournaments of 1983 — she is a little wary. “You guys just about gave me the check and trophy before it started last year,” she told newsmen. “I’m not going to let you do that this time.” [.ast year, it was the Avon Championships, and Navratilova breezed into the finals where she was upset by Hamka Navratilova lost only twice more in 1982, to her doubles teammate, Pam Shriver, in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open and to Lloyd in the final of the Australian Open. In December, she again met Lloyd, this time in the final of the Toyota Championships, and dropped the first set She hasn’t lost a set since. Goolagong, who has played sporadically since the birth of her second child 22 months ago, said she was looking forward to the tough competition Sixers knicked New York sinks Philadelphia, 89-76 The New York Knicks did a number on the Philadelphia 76ers.

Olympic command meeting set NEW DELHI, India (AP) - The International Olympic committee meets here this week with the emphasis on new faces and changes in the high command. A new vice president is to be elected, and two new members of the executive board — the inner cabinet that plans for the Olympic Games. The face of the IOC goes cm changing. CH the 64 members, fewer than half served under Avery Brundage, the president who defended the Olympic ideals with an iron hand from 1952 to 1972. Nearly 30 new members have been taken on by the IOC in the last six years, many of them comparatively young men. They have to face the new problems of the Olympic movement — moat notably pressures for changes in eligibility rules — and the help the IOC can now give to world •port from the millions of dollars flooding in from television. This session is due to consider a dozen subjects, including eligibility, the most controversial feature of the Olympics at the moment. But it is unlikely the IOC will broaden the rules or to permit athletes to take official payments for competing. The IOC executive board is due to confer with the International Amateur Athletic Federation in Helsinki in August, on the eve of the inaugural World Track and Field Championships. No significant step is expected before then. Meanwhile, an agreement was reached by Olympic organizers in Los Angeles and the IOC to allows professionals under 20 years of age to play in tennis matches. Tennis is a demonstration sport at the Games and no medals will be awarded. It will be become a regular Olympic sport at the Seoul Games in 1988. It is the first time the IOC has agreed to admit avowed professionals into Olym pics-related competition. Players such as Andrea Jaeger, Kathy Rinaldi and Mits Wilander would be affected. This week’s elections follow the death of Arpad Csanadi of Hungary, a member of the board, and the end of a four-year term as vice president for Masaji Kiyokawa of Japan, a swimming gold medalist in 1932.Ashwini Kumar of India, ending his allotted span on the executive board, is running for vice president. As host of the session, welcoming and entertaining IOC members, he has a good chance of being elected. Younger members who might be elected to the executive board include Richard Pound of Canada, 40; Peter Tallberg of Finland, 44, and Keven Gosper of Australia, 49. Nominations have to be in by Friday and elections will take place over the weekend. Traction Sure-Grip...
