 Bobby Wants To Be Shining Knight Saturday
The basketball season is less than a week old, but there have been enough hoops made and missed to warn everyone of the uncer-tainity which will dominate the college scene this winter.
Kentucky's scare from Austin Peay was more than enough to cause concern for the Big Blue faithful, but UK fans knew long before Saturday night that the 'Cats will endure a long, cold season without the likes of Winston Bennett and Cedric Jenkins (until he returns sometime in January).
APSU's strong showing against the 'Cats wasn't totally shocking to those who have been around APSU coach Lake Kelly. The former UK assistant made no secret that his Govs had been working long and hard toward the UK battle.
Without taking anything away from Centre College (which upset the Govs the night before in Clarksville), there was little doubt Kelly was putting all his marbles in the game against the Big Blue. And you couldn't blame him.
Just in case your memory isn't so good, Kelly coached many of the current Wildcats
and Kelly's strategy had all the ingredients of a well-devised gameplan. It worked, almost to perfection, save a baseline jumper from sophomore Irv Thomas in the final 30 seconds.
Several of the Wildcats' poor work habits were exposed time and again.
Without question, Kentucky must improve by leaps and bounds to be a NCAA tournament competitor by the last of February. While there were signs of promise, there also were numerous glaring weaknesses. Perhaps the brightest spot of all was the scoreboard which showed a Kentucky victory after a less than impressive performance. There's an old saying which goes something like, "any poor win is better than any great loss."
Several other big-name schools around the country weren't so fortunate.
The debut of prep All-American Rex Chap man was a good one although he committed a few rookie mistakes. The Owensboro Apollo flash graded himself a "C-plus", and that should tell you something about this youngster.
If Chapman graded only a C-plus, several other players could be tinkering with a non-passing grade. Actually, Chapman probably deserved a "B". Rex made a few mistakes offensively with a couple ill-advised passes. His defense is still on the suspect side, but he did come up with a fine defensive play which sealed the victory in the final seconds of the game.
Derrick Miller, the 'Cats' other rookie, saw less action but the Savannah, Georgia, native will be making believers of hoop fans before the week is over. By the middle of next season, UK will have the nation's finest guard trio in Ed Davender, Rex Chapman and Der rick Miller.
The inside play was erractic, to say the least. There were spots of hope for the future but they were clearly overshadowed by the disappointments. Fans should remember that none of UK's inside peopleRob Lock Richard Madison, Trv Thomashave ever
been in a crucial starting situation before Saturday. They will improve with time, or they'll be embarrassed every time they hit the floor because Sutton has no choice but to go with the big three.
Kentucky will enter a lion's den Saturday afternoon and you'd better believe Bobby Knight and his IU band of warriors will be out for blood.
Unfortunately, the 'Cats will be going in much like a lion tamer without a whip. A real disaster could be in the making.
Knight would like nothing better than to bury the Wildcats. He probably would like to headline the contest as the Good Guys vs. the Bad Guys.
I don't believe I have to point how who he believes the good guys are.
To say Bobby Knight despises Kentucky would be the understatement of the year. In fact, he is fast becoming UK's most hated personality. Move over Jock, there's gotta be room for Sir Knight.
In a recently published book on Knight's Indiana team last year, Knight is quoted often about Kentucky. His accusations of wrongdoings around the UK program were frequent and many. He even accused UK of taking care of Kenny Walker, beyond the legal limit.
He made a joke of the fact that his star, Steve Alford, was prevented from playing against UK last December because of a minor infraction and yet UK was being allowed to escape any penalty for major infractions (referring to a newspaper investigation of UK program).
Yes sir, Bobby has a way with words. Oh, does he? Even the cable airwaves have to cover their eyes when Bobby preaches.
A year ago, I wondered why Bobby didn't appeal Alford's suspension, thereby allowing him to play in the big game against Kentucky. IU could have appealed and played. Even if the NCAA upheld its original ruling, Alford could have sat out a lesser important game. Bobby didn't.
I believe I know why. I thought it strange that Bobby would deny Alford that opportunity of playing against UK by not appealing the decision. The more I think about it, Bobby probably intended to use the situation to grandstand against UK. And what better vehicle than a book devoted to IU and written by a famous newspaper columnist Washington Post's John Feinstein.
Plus, the lost of Alford would provide Knight for a terrific alibi if the Hoosiers failed to upset Kentucky. Indiana played close, but got no cigar. Kentucky won 63-58.
Which brings us to Saturday afternoon with a regional television audience looking on.
Indiana is a big favorite to give the Wildcats the kind of a whipping which would bring a smile to Knight's face.
With both Winston Bennett and Cedric Jenkins on the sidelines, it figured to be a real blowout. Indiana's sudden and tragic loss of star Rick Calloway certainly will be dent the Hoosiers' talent level somewaht. Still, IU figures to win and win big.
Kentucky won't just roll over and play dead. History reminds us Kentucky enjoys this rivalry^
During the early stages of the Joe Hall era, the former Wildcat boss practically climbed the walls after being unable to beat the Hoosiers. Finally, the tables turned.
No one dominated Bobby Knight in the late seventies and early eighties like Joe B. Hall. From the night that (K)night gave ole Joe B. the friendly slap (that's how Bobby described the flick of the wrist) on the back of the head as Knight was embarrasing Hall in Bloomington till Joe B.'s upset win over IU in the 1983 NCAA Mideast Region, Hall ruled Knight.
Knight finally got the best of Hall in their last confrontation in December of 1984 when IU won an 81-68 score over an outmanned UK team which surprised everyone in March by overachieving all the way to the final Sweet Sixteen.
Prior to that last IU game. Hall held an impressive 8-3 record against Knight during their last 11 battles. One of the three losses was a 77-68 overtime loss to Knight's 1976 undefeated national champions. UK had that game wrapped up in regulation until a freak shot bounced through the hoop at the horn to send the game into overtime. The other two UK losses were a 68-67 overtime loss and a 62-59 defeat, both in Bloomington.
So you can understand, perhaps, why Knight is so jealous of the Kentucky program. Quite simply, he hasn't been able to dominate the 'Cats.
All that is likely to change Saturday. Knight should win and win big. Kentucky simply doesn't have the weapons to combat the Hoosiers this time around.
It could be a very, very long afternoon for Eddie Sutton and his Wildcats. Then again, Kentucky enjoys its rivalry with the Hoosiers. One thing is for certain. No prisoners will be taken.
Some kind of a weekend for Kentucky college hoops, right?
You start off with Western Kentucky winning its way to the NIT Final Four, followed by Centre College's upset over Austin Peay and go from there.
Western Kentucky, as we've said before, is certainly a Top Twenty team in the USA. How high is another question. Western, like so many other teams, is lacking quality guard play. If Roland Shelton can come through and James McNary can play steady, coach Murray Arnold will be the Sunbelt Conference Coach of the Year and the Hilltoppers will be playing well into March. Western made a lot of believers in New York by pushing UNLV to two overtimes before falling in the championship game. Sure, the Toppers blew a 21-point lead, but Western is for real.
Centre sneaked up on Austin Peay as the Govs were busy preparing for Kentucky and the Prayin' Colonels proved that praying really does pay off. Austin Peay must have taken the hint because Lake Kelly's club almost turned the same trick 24 hours later.
But the real shocker belongs to the Louisville Cardinals which went down not once, but three times to teams not previously ranked in the Top Twenty.
There are those who say the Cardinajs
alway get off to a slow start and there's some truth to the statement, but back-to-back-to-back losses to Northeastern, Washington and Texas? Well, you be the judge.
Louisville does have a point guard problem and that's likely to be solved with the return of Kevin Walls, but as one national sport-scaster noted Sunday on television, the Cards still had more prep Ail-Americans on the bench that their three opponents had combined.
The Cards should get well Saturday, but Denny Crum will need to work some magic if he's to lick the likes of Western Kentucky and Indiana on the road later this month.

HITS AND MISSES . . . Former UK coach Joe B. Hall will work two games with ABC-TV this season. Hall's first assignment will be the Kentucky-LSU game in Lexington on Jan. 18 and the second game will be the championship of the SEC Tournament in March at the Omni in Atlanta . . . Kentucky's recent basketball recruiting harvest is being hailed as the best in the country for the year and most experts say the Wildcats have no chance of losing the distinction, even if they're shutout during the April signing date . . . Kentucky wasn't alone in its recruiting success. The Southeastern Conference enjoyed one of its finest days as fourteen of the nation's top 100 inked to play in the SEC next year. Bob Gibbons of All-Star Sports Report says Georgia also had a great year, signing fourElmore Spencer of Atlanta, Neville Austin of Auburn, Ala., Marshall Wilson of Carnesville. Ga.. and Anthony Haynes of Macon, Ga.of the nation's top 100 . . . Citing a need to give its sports department new energy, the Louisville Courier-Journal has named Steve Ford its new sports editor. Other changes could follow. C-J managing editor David Hawpe says the public can expect the newspaper to undertake more "enterprising" work than in the past. In other words, the CJ&T plans to join the growing field of newspapers with heavier emphasis on investigative reporting. Hawpe also wants to the see an improvement in the newspaper's ability to catch breaking news stories. There have been whispers around the publishing circles for the past year that the CJ&Times people were embarrassed by the Lexington Herald-Leader which won a Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting.  Sources close to the Louisville newspaper scene say the big wheels with the Gannett Corporation, new owners of the CJ & Times, is determined to make The Courier-Journal the topic of newspaper talk in Kentucky as it used to be. Knight-Ridder, which acquired the Lexington Herald-Leader several years ago, has made sweeping changes over the past three or four years and has employed a hard-hitting approach to news and controversial issues. Although segments of the region have protested the direction of the Lexington newspapers in recent months, the circulation has shown a solid growth since Knight-Ridder's takeover. And that's the bottom line to any business-for-profit publishing company. [Continued From Page 16]
enough for this event, one which I will never miss in the future. In fact. I look forward to this even more so than a real game.
Not many colleges think of their fans and there was a time when I wondered if Kentucky really appreciated its fans. You've eliminated my doubts.
Thanks, for remembering the little fan.
Very truly yours.

C'mon Students
Dear Sir:
I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing thousands of good empty seats wasted at UK football and basketball games because students demand a huge allotment and then fail to use them.
I was a student once and we wanted as many seats as we could get, but there was a difference. We used the seats.
If UK students don't want to use the seats and support the Cats, then let someone have the tickets who will show up for the game.
It's a disgrace when there are 2,500 empty seats at Rupp Arena, but not available to the public.
I don't know who is responsible, but whoever it is should take some action. It's just not fair.
Thank you,
Johnny Morehead Lexington, Kentucky
Prep Football Finals

Xavier scored 14 second-half points while upending Boone County, 27-14.
Senior quarterback Jeff Houck tallied 192 yards on the ground. His big moment came when he sprinted 71 yards for the game's final TD at the 3:34 mark in the fourth quarter. Houck capped off the scoring with a two-point conversion run. The long touchdown scamper came after Boone County cut the lead to five (19-14) with 4:40 left in the contest.
St. Xavier, 12-2, held a 13-7 lead heading into intermission, thanks in part to Houck's 51-yard scoring run.
It marked the third 4-A title for the Louisville school. Boone County, which was riding an eight-game winning streak, ended the season with an 11-2 mark.
HalFs Kats Win Own Tourney By Beating Illinois State, 78-70
Last Saturday Terry Hall's Kentucky team won the Lady Kat Invitational Tournament by defeating Illinois State 78-70 in the championship game at Memorial Coliseum.
Bebe Croley scored 27 points in the finale as she and teammate Sandy Harding were
named to the all-tournament team. Croley was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. Harding, the team's starting point guard, contributed 14 points and nine assists while playing the full 40-minute tilt.
Center Debbie Miller chipped in 20 points. Kentucky owns a 2-0 mark. In Friday night's action, Kentucky earned a spot in the finals with a 74-62 win over Bowling Green. Croley led UK to its first win with 20 points, followed by Miller with 18. Jodie Whitaker added 12 tallies to the Lady Kats' win.

Hamilton's Cowboys Drop Opener, 79-61
Former University of Kentucky assistant coach Leonard Hamilton lost in his debut at Oklahoma State last Saturday. Pepperdine. led by Levy Middlebrooks' 20 points, defeated the visiting Cowboys 79-61.
Hamilton left Kentucky last season after 11 seasons at UK. Before coming to Lexington he spent three years as an assistant coach at Austin Peay. During his 11-year stint at UK, Wildcat teams recorded a lofty 270-78 mark.
Kentucky Crowns Four 1986 Champs
Last week at Louisville's Cardinal stadium Heath, Mayfield, Owensboro and Louisville St. Xavier wrapped up state football crowns in their respective divisions.
Heath 27, Cumberland 12
Heath's Greg Armstrong, a smaller version of Chicago's William Perry, intercepted a pass and caused a fumble as Heath captured the Class-A title with a 27-12 victory over Cumberland. Armstrong's blocking helped teammate Jamie Jones find more than one hole to run through.
The Class-A and 2-A were played on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, while the Class 3-A and 4-A titles were decided on Saturday afternoon.
The Class-A champs had to overcome a 12-7 halftime deficit. However, halfback Jamie Jones scored two second-half touchdowns for the team from western Kentucky. Jones compiled 184 yards on 30 carries.
Mayfield 21, Newport Cath. 20 (OT)
In the second game of Friday's football doubleheader. Mayfield knocked of Newport Catholic in overtime, 21-20. Mayfield, which captured its second straight 2-A title, held Catholic on a two-point attempt in the extra period.
Following Mayfield touchdown and extra-point in overtime, Catholic's Frank Jacobs hauled in a five-yard score to pull his team within one.
Each team gets one possesion and four plays starting at the opponent's 10-yard line. If a tie still remains then both teams will again receive another possession at the 10.
Catholic decided to go for the win, but failed when quarterback Gary Gabbard's pass intended for Jacobs fell incomplete.
Owensboro 14, Belfry 0
The Owensboro Red Devils won the 3-A title by blanking Belfry, 14-0 last Saturday. Speedster Maurice White rambled for 242 yards on 21 attempts, including touchdown spurts of 86 and 79 yards.
If not for White, Owensboro would have had only 38 yards rushing. However, the Red Devils' defense held Belfry in check throughout the afternoon. The Pirates gained 173 total yards, 126 via the ground.
With Owensboro leading 7-0 at halftime, White, who's a starter on OHS' hoop demons, dashed 79 yards on the Devils' initial play of the third quarter. In his first season at running back, White rushed for almost 1,900 yards and 26 touchdowns. This was the first season for the Red Devils in 3-A competition, who after last season dropped from the 4-A level.
Starting the third quarter, Belfry drove to Owensboro's 16. The drive ended in zero points for the Pirates when they were stopped on fourth down.

Rough Weekend For 'Cats, Cards
Jenkins, Scott Will Help UK's Power Game
Whew! What a weekend.
While 1 was flipping through the channels on my television set Saturday night, trying to find out all the latest basketball scores, I accidently tuned in to a news report. Something about President Reagan and Iran. It seems that all the boys up on Capitol Hill were in an uproar because the President had been caught selling arms to Ayatollah Khomeini. All the big wigs in Washington were amazed.
"Sell weapons to Iran, our enemy?" they said. "How pro-postrous."
Now I've always been a big Reagan supporter, but I tend to agree
Mike Estep
Cats' Pause Columnist
with his critics on this one. If we're gonna supply weapons to someone who really needs them, how about making sure they're on our side?
Hey, Mr. President, how about sending some of those weapons this way?
While you're delivering all those aircraft carriers to the Ayatollah. how about sending a couple to Lexington? Eddie Sutton sure could use a couple of big men.
And Denny Crum could most certainly get more use out of a good FT boat than the Iranians could. When you're planning your next shipment, how about earmarking a playmaking point guard for Louisville?
As we found out last weekend, Kentucky's college basketball teams could use some weaponry of their own.
From The State Department. . .
For the state's two foremost basketball powersKentucky and Louisvillethis first weekend of the 1986-87 college basketball season pointed out some glaring weaknesses.
First of all, coach Denny Crum took his defending champion Cards up to the Great White North and found out just how tough it is to repeat.
Louisville, ranked No. 1 in several preseason polls and in the top five in nearly all the rest, ventured North to the Great Alaska Shootout without a proven point guard and came back home with a goose egg. Oh-for-three. Expected to win the eight-team tourney, Louisville looked terrible, instead coming in last place.
