LEXINGTON, Ky W) - Ken-
tucky State, the NAIA champion,
apparently was passed over for a
bid to the National Invitation Bas-
ketball Tournament because of a
threat py Michigan to back out ofj
the NIT, the Lexington Herald said
Tuesday.
NIT officials denied it and Don
Canham, Michigan athletic direc-
tor, called the report "an absolute
fabrication."
"We chose teams on the basis
of records and quality of oppo-
nents," Ben Carnevale, chairman
of the selection committee for the
tournament in New York. "There
were teams considered ahead of
Kentucky State."
The NIT is scheduled to start
March 20 in New York's Madison
Square Garden.
The Herald quoted Lucias Mit-
chell, coach of Kentucky State, as
saying that he was told twice that
Michigan would withdraw if his
team were invited.
'I sympathize with the commit-
tee," Mitchell was quoted by the
paper. "They've got to protect
their tournament. If all the big
teams started backing out, they'd
be through.
"The big schools just don't like
to be beat by the smaller schools
and we think we could have won
it."

Mitchell said he learned of Mich-
igan's threat from a New York
writer and a scout for the Phoenix
Suns. "With all those people say-
ing it, it's got to be more than a
humor," he said.
Kentucky State, in winning the
NAIA or small college champion-
ship, finished the season with a 31-2
record, including a 14-game win-
ning streak.
Mitchell said after his team had
clinched the NAIA title, members
felt sure they would be invited to
the NIT. "Our kids were really
looking forward to New York and
the NIT," he added, explaining
the team's disappointment.
Canham termed the report that
Michigan threatened to pull out
"ridiculous . . . absolutely stupid."
"We play NAIA teams in base-
ball and basketball," he said. "We
have no concern who plays in thel
NIT."

" BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Erie County Legislature gave a go-
ahead yesterday on a state agency's proposal for an open-air sports
stadium, which seemingly has won the approval of Buffalo Bills' owner
Ralph C. Wilson.
The lawmakers, by a 13-6 vote, declared their intention to build
a 65,000-to-80,000 seat stadium in suburban Hamburg. The State
Urban Development Corp. last week suggested that a "no frills stad-
ium" be built there at a cost of between $23 million and $27.5 million..

0 LOS ANGELES - Spencer Haywood testified yesterday he
never could understand how his six-year contract with the Denver
Rockets totaled the $1.9 million claimed by the American Basketball.
Association club.
Haywood was the opening witness as testimony started in the
U.S. District Court jury trial of the Rockets' breach of contract
suit against the controversial pro basketball standout.
The pact was broken down in court to show the Haywood would
be paid $51,000 a year for two years, then four years at $75,000 a
year with $10,000 a year invested over a period of 10 years.
Haywood testified he "kept asking" Rocket President D. W.
Ringsby "to show how the contract provides $1.9 million."
"The pay totaled $450,000. I wanted to see how the $100,000
was going to pan out to $1.5 million," he said.

0 CHICAGO - Coach Dick Motta of the Chicago Bulls denied yes-
terday reports he accused the Milwaukee Bucks of letting up in a Na-
tional Basketball Association loss to the Phoenix Suns Sunday at Madi-
son, Wis.
"I didn't accuse Milwaukee of doing, anything," said Motta, whose
Bulls are battling Phoenix for a playoff berth in the NBA's Midwest
Division. The Milwaukee Bucks have the divisional title sewed up.

DALLAS, Tex. AP - Dallas
Cowboys quarterback Craig Mor-
ton was arrested by Dallas police
Sunday and booked on a misde-;
meanor charge of "indecent con-
duct and abusive language."
Morton said the charge was ri-
diculous and his lawyer said it was
not a legal one.
Officers D. E. Mayner and R. C.
Hawthorne said they arrested Mor-
ton after they saw him standing
beside a parked car at an all-night
service station and urinating.
Mortondsaid he was innocent of
such conduct.

iinid Mets
LAKELAND, Fla. (A) - Mickey
Stanley's wrong-field grand slam
homer carried the Detroit Tigers
to a 10-4 exhibition victory over the
New York Mets yesterday.
Stanley's blast polished off a six-
run Tiger rally that broke a 2-2
deadlock and sent Mets starter
Jim McAndrew to the showers.
Pinch - hitter Claude Molinare
singled to lead off the Tiger fifth
and Dalton Jones and Gates Brown,
followed with singles to account
for the Tigers' first two runs of the
big inning.
Aurelie Rodriguez singled and
Bill Freehan drew a walks to lead
the bases, setting the stage for
Stanley's homer off relief pitcher
Charlie Williams.
Jones also homered for the Tig-
ers, a two-run shot in the eighth.
Donn Clendenon and John Milner
had round trippers for the Mets.

He was taken to jail and later+
released on a $50 bond. His case
comes up in municipal court April
3.
"It's so ridiculous, it's absurd,"
he said Tuesday. He was wearing
a cast on his right elbow from a
recent operation.
Morton's lawyer said, "This is
a foolish thing. Indecent conductl
is not even a legal charge..I don't
know what it it. I'm confident we'll
have this matter thrown out when
the hearing is held."
"Nothing like that ever hap-
pened" Morton said. "We pulled up
to get some gas and I got out of
the car. My date was driving and
I told her to pull closer to the gas
pump. Then the two policemen
came up and told me I was under
arrest.
"I thought they were kidding. I
said I hadn't done anything. They
told me to get in the car. I still
though they were kidding.
"Then one of them grabbed my
right arm and bent it behind my
back. I told him to take it easy, I
just had that arm operated on.
"They made me get in the patrol
car and we drove off. I admit

that's when I started using abu-
sive language. I was pretty darned
upset. This whole thing is a farce."
Dallas Cowboy president Tex
Schramm was out of the city and
unavailable for comment.
Al Ward, the assistant general
manager, said, "I 'have no com-
ment. I have 'to check with his
lawyer."
