Utah sinks Kentucky, 137-w127

-Zelmo Beaty led Utah's bal-
anced offense with 32 points last
night as the Stars downed the
Kentucky Colonels 137-127 to
take a 3-2 lead in their best-of-
seven American Basketball As-

Utah can wrap up the series
Saturday in Louisville in a na-

Frazier ready
for next bout
Frazier, world heavyweight box-
ing champion, who said soon
after his March 9 victory over
Muhammad Ali that he might
retire from the ring, now says
he is looking for a fight this
"I can't stay put anywhere,"
Frazier said. "I can't just ay6
back and rest. That's why I ask-
ed Yank (his manager Yancey
Durham) to get me a fight this
"Joe wants another fight and
I'll try to get it for him," Dur-
ham promised. "But I still would
like to see him retire. I tried to
persuade him but he's set on
fighting again.
"I got a telegram from Vince
McMahon of Washington and
Willie Gilzenburg of Newark,
N.J., offering me a million dol-
lars to fight somebody, they
didn't mention names, and I
guess they want it in Atlantic
City," said Durham.
Frazier leaves tomorrow with
his eight-piece rock band, The
Knockouts, for a tour of 29
cities in 11 European countries.
"I'll be back here doing real
workouts when we get back from
Europe," the champion said at
his gym. "I have to do some-
thing to keep the weight down."
Frazier said his present weight
is 215 pounds, 10 more than
when he weighed in for the Ali

Utah never trailed after spurt-
ing to an 11-3 lead in the open-
ing minutes and roaring to a
75-56 lead by halftime.
The Stars led by as many as
20 points in the second half,
although the Colonels made a
meager comeback bid in the
fourth quarter.
Kentucky pulled to within sev-
en at 132-125 on Cincy Powell's
three-point goal with 35 seconds
Kentucky center Dan Issel hit
33 points, 27 in the first half to
lead all scorers. Powell added
22 for the Colonels. Glen Combs
and Ron Boone backed up Beaty
with 25 and 24 points, respec-
tively for Utah.
Mentor Mota
CHICAGO (4P) - The Chicago
Bulls announced yesterday that
Dick Motta, the National Bas-
ketball Association Coach of the
Year, has signed a five-year
contract with the Bulls.
Motta's salary in the new
agreement was not disclosed but
Pat Williams, Bulls' general
manager, said, "We feel we
have come up with the finest
contract in sports for Dick."
The announcement ended
speculation that Motta, 39,
would sign to coach the Texas
Chaparrals of the American
Basketball Association. It was
reported that the AB9 team
offered Motta $60,000 a year.
Motta said that money w a
not the factor that persuaded
him to stay in Chicago. "I don't
think my job is done yet in
Chicago," he said.
One factor which led appar-
ently to Motta's decision was
that he will now be able to
choose his assistant coach. Wil-
lHams announced that Jerry
Krausse has resigned as chief

Play was interrupted briefly in .
the third quarter when Powell
and Boone started slugging un-
der the Kentucky basket.
Powell left the game with cuts
on his right eyebrow and left el-
bow. He was called for a per-
sonal foul and a technical was
whistled on Boone.
The Stars dominated the firs'
half, shooting 53 per cent an"
hitting five of six three-point
Combs, with 11 points, a'
Boone with 10 led Utah to a
25 first quarter lead.
Utah's Merv Jackson, slowed ' '
by a knee injury, sat out most of
the game but still scored
points, 13 in the second quart'
inks new pact
Motta had complained about
not having his choice as assist-
ant coach and the Texas offer
would have given him the right
to name one, presumably Phil
Johnson, Motta's long-time friend
and successor as coach at Weber
State College.
Neither Motta nor Williams
would confirm that Johnson will
now join the Bulls but Williams
said, "We will hire a coach of
Motta's choice."
Williams said that the length-j
of Motta's new contract is "what
makes it so good. "I don't know
of a professional basketball team
that has given a coach such a
long contract."
Motta joined the Bulls three
years ago from Weber State and
turned them into a NBA con- X
tender. The Bulls finished the
1970-71 season with a 51-31 re-
cord, good for second place in
the Midwest division and the
third best over-all record in the
The Bulls lost a spirited play-
off series to the Los Angeles
Lakers, four games to three.
