By RANDY PHILLIPS '
One of the nation's endless wells
for top basketball prospects, New
York City, has produced the sur-
prise team of this year's young
.season, while neighboring Phila-
dephia has provided their own
version of basketball excellence
Fordham's Rams have thus far
compiled a clean slate of twelve'
straight victories as well as tak-
R ing a hold on 18th place in the
iA~ Associated Press' weekly poll.
~ ~44The Rams have a new coach,
Richard Phelps, who was an as-
sistant at Penn last season. This
coupled with the development of
forward Charlie Yelverton and an
aggressive defense has spelled a
success that was considered highly
unlikely at the start of this sea-
Fordham likes to run and as a
result they score quick and often.
In their first 12 games they have
been putting the points in at a
rate of 89.8 per contest while hold-
ing their opponents to 69.3 points
But it has been their defense
that has done the job. The Rams
press full court the entire game
and as a result force the other
teams into numerous turnovers.
Phelps attributes the success of
the press to "the whole defensive
attitude" of his club.
This strategy has worked so ef-
fectively that although the Rams
are a very small squad they have
outrebounded their opponents.
They just do not let them set up.
Yelverton leads a balanced scor-
ing attack with a 23.6 average and
is supported by sophomore guard
Kenneth Charles at 15.3 and 6-5
forward Bart Woytowicz at 12.5.
Running down Fordham's early
schedule it is apparent that they
have not come up against any
ranked foes, but they did beat a
good Holy Cross squad by 34
points and a good California five
at California by 19.
The big test will come when the
Rams tip off against tough Notre
Dame and their outstanding guard
Austin Carr next month.
However, Coach Phelps is not
looking ahead too far in fear of
letting an easy one slip out of
control. He's just interested in
beating Temple this Saturday and
then "taking them one at a time."
Just across the border in Phila-
delphia there has been some rum-
Fordham, Penn surpris
blings going on at Pennsylvania
for the past three years. An ag-
gressive recruiter, Dick Harter,}
has turned the Penn basketball7
program around. Last year his
Quaker squad swept the local
Philadelphia teams 4-0 and the
Ivy League 14-0, and this season
his quintet has swarmed out to a
torrid 11-0 record.
Penn relies on balance and
quickness as they have no one big,
scorer. Leading the team is for-
ward'Bob Morse at a 17.1 clip; he
also leads in rebounding at 9.9
carems per contest.
The Quakers like to run when-1
ever they get the chance but will
adapt to the situation at hand.
One would have to call Penn a
very close knit experienced group
since their starters have now be-
gun the last 38 games.,
Usually Harter utilizes a tight1
man-to-man defense with an oc-
casional full or half court press
sprinkled in to upset his oppo-
Syracuse has had the most ef-
fective performance against the
Quakers despite losing as they
threw a zone at Penn, but recent-
ly Dartmouth got bombed from
the outside when they tried the
same tactic and the Quakers put
on a 58 perecent shooting per-
Looking ahead to the remainder
of the year Penn has to face very
tough Villanova with their big
man 6-8 Howard Porter for a re-
peat of the local championship-
a difficult task in any year.
Even if they get by Villanova,
perhaps upstart Fordham will be
waiting to challenge them in the
Blauda honored as t(

NEW YORK - George Blanda,
the 43-year-old greybeard sub
quarterback and kicking special-
ist of the Oakland Raiders foot-
ball team whose last gasp heroics
gave new hope to the middle-aged,
has been named Male Athlete of
the Year by The Associated Press.

tact sport competing against ath-
letes half his age, beat out a glit-
tering array of stars in assorted
sports in the year-end poll of
sports writers and broadcasters.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Blan-
da, broke into pro football with
the Chicago Bears in 1949.
His dramatic come-from-behind
exploits, which highlighted t h e
1970 season, began in mid-season.
Blanda put on such a show of last
minute miracles that football
buffs couldn't wait to t u r n on
their TV sets to see what the old
man might do next. They called
it "sundown magic."
In a relief role for the injured
Daryle Lamonica, he completed
14 of 24 passes for 250 yards and
four touchdowns in two games.
"I'm essentially a kicker," Blan-
da says, downgrading his value as
a quarterback, but he adds:
"Sometimes a little bit of exper-
During the 1970 season, Blanda
kicked 36 extra points without a
miss and 16 field goals in 29 at-
tempts for a total of 84 points. He
is pro football's all-time leading
scorer with 1,561 points,
"He looked stronger throwing
the ball this year than he has in
the last four years," says Blanda's
coach, 34-year-old John Madden.
"He has what you look for in a
quarterback. He has confidence in
the team and the team has confi-
dence in him."
One of 11 children, Blanda said
he learned to be competive early.
"You had to to survive," he added.
"The g u y almost embarrasses
you," says teammate Jim Otto,
the Oakland center. "He's out
there, 43 years old, running wind
sprints and working harder than
any of us."
"I love it," admits Blanda.
