Petrie's 30-Foot Bombs Help Blazers Gun Bullets By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rookie Geoff Petrie of the Portland Trail Blazers has become accustomed to being double-teamed. He shrugs it off by hitting 30-footers. "We don't usually doubleteam a player that far from the hoop," said Baltimore Coach Gene Shue Thursday night after the Bullets lost a 136-118 National Basketball Association game to the expansion team. Petne, who had been a doubtful starter because of a sore knee, quickly hit four in a row from 30 feet and beyond. That gave Shue reason to doubt his defensive strategy. The victory snapped Portland's nine-game losing streak.

Seattle ripped Detroit 130-97 and San Diego shoved aside Boston 115-91 in the only other NBA games scheduled. Portland Coach Rolland Todd is just as convinced that Petrie should be Rookie of the Year as Atlanta Coach Richie Guerin believes the honor should go to his rookie guard, Pete Maravich. He notes that Petrie has been scoring 30 points a game since opponents began double-teaming him 15 games ago. Petrie again scored 30 as Portland toppled a Baltimore team which played without injured center Wes Unseld. Earl Monroe played sparingly because of sore ankles.

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -The University of Puget Sound Loggers, twice winners against Seattle Pacific College, have a trip to the NCAA coUege national basketball tournament riding on their hopes of making it three straight. The Loggers broke the Cal Poly Mustangs 81-69 Thursday night after the Seattle Pacific Falcons beat the San Francisco State Gators 75-68 in the opening round of the Western Regionals. Puget Sound and Seattle Pacific, traditional rivals, decide the western representative to the Evansville, bid., finals Saturday after the Gators and Mustangs shoot for third place. The lOth-ranked Loggers ran off strings of 10 and 12 straight points but still had to hold off the tireless Mustangs. Center Mike Jordan delivered 17 of his 28 points in the second half but it was Charles Lowery's cool leadership that kept the Loggers together. Cal Poly had come back from a 26-16 deficit with about eight minutes left in the first half to only a 35-33 lag at halftime. The Mustangs tied the score with the first two points of the second half. Lowery, who had 23 points, then scored five of the Loggers' 12 straight points during the next 2Vz minutes. The senior guard, whose thoughtful facial expression seemingly changes about once a lifetime, alternated scoring himself and setting up Jordan. Still, the Mustangs refused to break until the last four minutes. Lewis Jackson, who led Cal Poly with 25 points, pumped long jumpers over the taller Loggers to bring the Mustangs to within four points with just under seven minutes left. The Mustangs couldn't get closer. Jim Ballard scored 13 of his 24 points and Ed Brown 12 of his 18 points for Seattle Pacific in the second half against San Francisco State. Jim Milliard had scored eight of his nine points during the first half to help the Falcons to a comfortable 38-31 lead at intermission. Ron Beall, who led the Gators with 17 points, scored 14 in the second half as the Gators nipped at the Falcons. Vance DeVost helped out with 10 of his 12 points and the Gators ran to a 46-43 deficit with less than five minutes gone in the second half. Ballard and Brown entirely dominated the Falcons' scoring for the next 10 minutes in what amounted to a two-on-two shoot ing duel with DeVost and Beall. When most of the shooting was over, the Falcons had a ninepoint lead which the Gators couldn't do much about.


By JIM REDING U-B Sports Editor SPOKANE — Can Pasco continue its amazing Cinderella story? Can Richland duplicate an early-season victory over fourthranked Shadle Park in a battle of height? Those questions will be answered at the Spokane Coliseum tonight as the Class AAA Region IV Basketball Tournament kicks off with a pair of games. Surprising Pasco and Richland carry the Big Eight Conference banner in the weekend tourney that will determine one entry in the state semi-finals next week in Seattle. Four strikingly similar teams will clash tonight. Pasco, the unexpected Yakima Valley AAA District champion, meets Central Valley in the 7:30 opener that matches two disciplined, defensive-minded teams. The 9 o'clock nightcap pits Spokane District champion Shadle Park against Richland in a height-happy hassle. Tonight's Tinners will clash at 9 o'clock Saturday night for the one and only ticket to Seattle. Tonight's losers via at 7:30 Saturday in a meaningless consolation affair. "It looks like it's going to be the big boys facing each other in one game and the little boys going at it in the other one," observed Shadle Park Coach Dave Robertson, whose Highlanders have good height and a 20-2 season record.

Shadle Park rates as the slight favorite, but Coach Don Monson and his Pasco Bulldogs have a reputation of being extremely tough in the big gunes. Despite a fourth-place finish during the Big Eight's regular campaign, Pasco emerged as th* Yakima Valley AAA District Tournament champion for the fourth straight year. "I don't care how many games they've lost," declared Kay Thacker, the veteran Central VaDey coach. "If Don Momon to stui coaching than, rmicaredasbell."
