Special To The Daily
IOWA CITY - Michigan's late
season basketball miracle men
toyed with a 16 point lead half
way through the second half, saw
it diminish to a hair thin 67-
66, then hung on for an upset
71-70 victory here last night.
Iowa s stunning loss, coming on
the 'eve of coach -Ralph Miller's
49th birthday, left the Hawkeyes
with only a tie for the Big Ten
championship. They will face co-
champ Ohio State Tuesday night
for the title and the right to
represent the Big Ten in the
NCAA regional tournament.
The rabid Iowa fans gave
superstar dam Williams a stand-
ing ovation before the game start-
ed, but it was perhaps the high
point of the contest for the Hawk-
eyes.
9-1 Lead
At "the end of two minutes,
Michigan was ahead 9-1, main-
taining at least that much of
a lead for most of the game
It was an unusual first half for
Williams and his good friend
from Detroit, Michigan Captain
Jimmy Pitts.
Within the first ten minutes
Williams scored thefirst 11 points
*for his team, seven of them on
free throws, but Iowa trailed 27-
11. At one point the score was
15-2.
Pitts, meanwhile though spark-
ing the early Wolverine attack
with 'sharp passing drew four
fouls :trying. to guard Williams
and had to go the bench.-

As a result, the conference has
decided to conduct a playoff to
d e t e r m i n e the representative
team. The coaches from the three
teams, Michigan, Michigan State,
and Iowa, will be polled to deter-
mine the site and the date of the
playoff.
Originally, all three coaches
had been pleased with the tie be-
cause of the NCAA rule passed
last summer. The rule eliminated
a regional tournament and sub-
stituted the conference winners as
entrants into the national cham-
pionships. If a team had won the
title outright, the other two would
have been ineligible for the na-
tionals.
Walter Byers, NCAA executive
secretary and person responsible
for the recent ruling necessitating
a playoff, was not available for
comment.
Bill Reed, Big Ten Commission-
er, felt that the rule and recent
decision "works a real hardship
on those conferences with great
gymnastic strength, as the Big
Ten does."
The coaches from the three
schools involved in the tie could
not be reached.

The victory sends Houston in-
to the Midwest Regional next

he is retiring. The NFL star who gained 9,275 yards and scored 68
touchdowns during his 13-year career, says that injuries which kept
him sidelined for all but six games last season, played a major part;
in his decision to retire at 35.

deciding against another bout with former champion Emile Griffith.
He said, "The people wouldn't be interested in one bout right after
the other." However, he later indicated that did not mean never
