Gamecocks, Texas in series final

By The Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. lf) - South
Carolina pushed across four
runs in the ninth inning in-
cluding one on Steve Cook's
squeeze bunt to oust Arizona
State 4-1 last night and earn
a title game berth in the Col-
lege World Series.
South Carolina, 51-5 will bat-
tle Texas, 55-6, in the wrap-
up tonight.
Texas drew a bye into the fi-
nals when three once - beaten
teams remained after five
THE second Arizona State-
South Carolina meeting of the
double elimination series was a
pitchers' battle until the eighth
Third-ranked Arizona State,
61-13, took a 1-0 lead in the
eighth on a two-out single by
Bob Pate and an opposite field
triple by Jerry Maddox.
South Carolina, however, re-
taliated in the top of the ninth
with four hits after being held
to three singles prior to the
Mark Van Bever opened the
inning with a bounding double
past third and was sacrificed to
third. Garry Hancock lined a
single to right to tie the game.
HANK Small followed with a
single and Arizona State starter
Greg Cochran departed.
Reliever Rick Bethke issued
a walk to load the bases and
the go ahead run came across
on a fielder's choice.
Steve Cook followed with a
squeeze bunt for the third run
and the other came in when the
Arizona State third baseman
threw wildly to first.
Tim Lewis, who scattered
eight hits, ran his record to
110. Cochran, who struck out
10 and give up six hits, lost for

the first time in 15 decisions.
SO there'll be no third or
fourth-place finish for Texas
this time around in the Series.
The Longhorns have finished
in those disappointing positions
five of the last six year.
"We came here with the idea
of winning the national cham-
pionship and our job is not
over," said Texas Coach Cliff
GIstafson after his team
crushed South Carolina 17-6
with an 11-hit attack Thursday
"We hope to complete our
mission Saturday night."
Highschooler, soon to be
collegim n, Phil Hubbard from
C- nton, Ohio will reportedly
make his choice on which
univer ity he will play bas-
ketball a t next year-T0-
The roundball phenom is
playing in one more all-star
game tonight and then will
make his decision between
Michigan, Iowa and Ohio
State. Hubbard has delayed
his decision for almost two
weeks now.
Michigan basketball coach
John Orr isn't as optimistic
as he once was about gain-
ing Hubbard's services, but
will have to wait and see on
Hubbard's choice. Hubbard
can step in and start for
Michigan as a freshman says
assistant Wolverine coach
Bill Frieder.

Like coach, like player .. .
South Carolina, coached by former New York Yankee second baseman, Bobby Richardson, shows
some adept second sack play in last night's College World Series game. The Gamecocks' Mack
Van Bever leaps high atop Arizona State's sliding Jerry Maddox to force him at second, al-
though Mike Colbern had singled. South Carolina won 4-1.

yard dash world record of 9.0 seconds, set national junior and
high school records last night in 100 meter preliminaries of the

His time broke the junior AAU mark of 10.4 set by Clancy
Edwards of California Poli in 1974 and the national high school
standard of 10.1 posted by Marshall Dill, Detroit, in 1971.
The world record for 100 meters is 9.9 seconds, held by six
