Big Teft approves
new three-point shot
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP)- The Big Ten
will experiment with a three-point goal
in all of its conference basketball
games next season, Commissioner
Wayne Duke announced yesterday.
None-conference opponents will have
the option of using the three-point
basket in games with Big Ten teams,
and some already have indicated their
willingness to do so, Duke said.
THE BIG Ten commissioner said the
conference athletic directors, meeting
in this Columbus suburb this week, had
approved a recommendation made
earlier 4gy basketball coaches.
He said that after the-directors took
their action Monday, he consulted with
Ed Steitz, athletic director at
Springfield College and secretary of the
NCAA Basketball Rules Committee.
He said Steitz reacted en-
thusiastically and gave permission for
UNDER THE experiment, field goals
made from beyond a 21-foot range will
be worth three points instead of two.
The distance compares to the 23-foot, 9-
inch range used for three-point goals in
the National Basketball Association.
Duke said nine of the coaches in the
conference favored the 21-foot distance,
while the other wanted 22 feet.
The recommendation to try the three-

point goal experiment had the support
of nine coaches at their recent meeting,
STEVE YODER, the newly appointed
Wisconsin coach, was not present at the
meeting. But conference spokesman
Jeff Elliot said he was contacted later
and voiced his support.
Duke said it was too early to
speculate as to how many non-
conference opponents would decide to
go along with the three-point play in
games with Big Ten teams.
But he said Hank Raymonds of
Marquette and Gene Sullivan of Loyola
of Chicago already had said they would,
"and I anticipate other institutions will
do so as well."
PURDUE Athletic Director George
King, a former basketball coach, joined
Duke at the news conference announ-
cing the experiment and said he
thought it would help open up the game
and create more action.
King said he was a little surprised
that the coaches had made the recom-
mendation, and with such a strong en-
"The Big Ten has really been a very
defensive-oriented type of basketball
game the last number of years, and this
seems to me to be kind of the opposite
trend to it," he said.-
"But I was really pleased to see it.
Like many directors and many coaches
around the country, I was getting to the
point of being very concerned about
what seemed to be a national trend toa

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:
LOS ANGELES (AP)- World Boxing
Association heavyweight champion
Mike Weaver was forced yesterday to
postpone his title defense against Ran-
dy "Tex" Cobb because of a left
shoulder injury suffered in a gym
"I injured the. muscle three weeks
ago lifting weights," Weaver said. "A
doctor told me to rest a couple of days
and it would be all right.
"BUT WHILE I was training at Lake
Tahoe, it began to hurt again so I came
home to have examinations."
He said doctors told him that he'
probably would be able to fight Cobb in
July. His title defense had been
scheduled June 2 in Atlantic City, N.J.,
and would net him $1 million.
Dr. Bernhart Schwartz, physician for
the California Athletic Commission,
examined Weaver and said the boxer
was unable to move his left shoulder or
turn his head without pain.
