?Henry O. Nichols, acting chairman of Villanova's department of education and one of the nation's top college basketball officials, on how he behaves when he is a spectator at a Villanova game: "Are you kidding? I yell at the referees just like everybody else."

? Bill Russell, Seattle SuperSonic coach, after towering Tom Burleson fell over a rival player and landed on his head: "When a guy 7'2" falls on his head, it can be serious. He's got a long way to go. The velocity builds up pretty good."

?Jim Fuller, Houston Astro outfielder, replying to lead-footed Cliff Johnson's claim that he'll steal 20 bases this season: "The only way you'll do that is to break into the equipment room."
