Special To The Daily
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.-The
remains of the Michigan wrestling
'team,' Pete Cornell and Dave
Porter, the only two to survive
the grueling eliminations, came
through with superior perform-
ances yesterday to take fifth place
at 167 pounds, and first place at
heavyweight, respectively, in the
final rounds of the NCAA Wrestl-
ing Tournament.
The team championship was
grabbed by powerful Oklahoma
A State with a total of 81 points;
Michigan ended up in eighth place
with '27:
Cornell was paired with Jason
Arizona State
Wins Twice
Special To The Daily
A free vacation to sunny Ari-
zona for the Wolverine nine
away from the Michigan blizzards
was turned into an extremely un-
pleasant journey thanks to Ari-
zona State's sweep of yesterday's
doubleheader.
Michigan was outslugged 13-10
in the opening game and shutout
4-0 in the second. The Wolverines
are now 0-3 on the season after
'osing to Arizona State last night.

Smith of Iowa State in the con-
solation semifinals and got pin-
ned at 4:55 of that match. This
eliminated him from a possible
third or fourth place.
Pete came back with a ven-
gence, though, and tore apart
Rod Ott of MSU, 6-2, an took
fifth place honors in the 167
pound slot.
The highlighted match, how-
ever,:was at heavyweight and in-
volved top-seeded Jeff Lewis
against Michigan's Porter.
Porter had beaten another Jeff,
second-seeded Jeff Smith of
MSU, for the right to wrestle in
the finals.
After a scoreless first period,
Dave elected top position and held
on until Lewis escaped. Then Por-
ter fell behind even further as
Lewis scored a takedown making
it 3-0.
Just 10 seconds later, Porter,
remembering the loss at the
NCAA tourney last year, the two
loses to MSU's Smith this year
(one at the Big Ten finals), and
a thousand other little aggrava-
tions, shot through and grabbed
Lewis around both legs, taking
him down and holding on to take
a 5-4 decision.
Veteran Michigan Coach Cliff
Keen summed up the perform-
ance: "Dave Porter is one of the
best national champs I have ever
coached. It took a lot, under the
circumstances, to come back the
way he did."

By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES-UCLA's Bruins
captured their second straight
n a t i o n a 1 collegiate basketball
championship and fourth in five
years when they whipped North
Carolina 78-55 last night.
The margin of victory was the
largest ever in the finals of a
National Collegiate Association
title game.
All-American Lew Alcindor, the
7-11/2" Bruin junior, dominated
this game as he scored 34 points,
controlled the boards and blocked
nine shots by the Tar Heels.

and forth trying to set up good
shots, but even when they seemed
to have them, Alcindor's arms and
hands generally were in the way.
After blasting previously unde-
feated Houston 101-69 in the
semifinals F r i d a y night, the
UCLAns went into the finals at
the Sports Arena heavily favored
against a North Carolina team
that had downed Ohio State
80-66.
Coach Dean Smith of North
Carolina tried a slow down attack
at the start and held UCLA to a
13-12 lead midway through the
half.
Then the Bruins forced three
straight turnovers and L y n n
Shackleford scored one field goal,
and Alcindor two.
From that point, the Bruins
continually increased their lead
and North Carolina was forced to
return to its normal attack in try-
ing to catch up.
Second high among the Bruins'
scorers was Allen with 11 while
Warren and Mike Lynn each con-
tributed seven. Against Houston,
al fiveUCLA starters had scored
in double figures with Alcindor,
Allen and Lynn each hitting 19.

Miller wound up high scorer
for the losers with 14. Charley
Scott had 12 and Rusty Clark
nine.
The 23-point margin eclipsed
the previous high, 20, in Ohio
State's 75-55 victory over Cali-
fornia in 1960.

stunned Houston 89-85 last night
and took third place in the Na-
tional Collegiate basketball cham-

Devastated by UCLA 101-69 in
the semifinals Friday night, the
top-ranked Cougars fell to the
Big Ten club for only their sec-
ond loss of the season.
The Buckeyes' Dave Sorenson
calmly dropped in two free throws
with 36 seconds remaining to
break an 85-85 tie, and Bill Hosket
wrapped it up with two more free
throws.
Steve Howell, a 232-pound
giant led the Buckeyes with 26
points
Elvin Hayes, collegiate Player
of the Year, contributed 34 for
Houston and Theodis Lee added
27 but the big dual production fell
short of meeting the determined
bid of the unranked young club
from the midwest.

Dayton Bou

NEW YORK - Deadeye Don
May, Dayton's tournament spar-
kler, lit a fuse under the reluctant
Flyers in the second half and
brushed the free throw shooting
dandies past Kansas 61-48 yes-
terday for the National Invitation
Basketball Tournament title.
May, a rugged 6-foot-4 second
team All-American who led Day-
ton to second place in the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion tournament last year, scored
17 of his 22 points as the Flyers
broke a halftime tie and led the
entire second half.

halftime tie.
He scored the first three points
of the second half, putting the
Flyers ahead to stay, and finished

game-as Dayton took only 11

The 76ers had chopped a Knick
lead that peaked at 18 points
down to three when Frazier and
Cazzie Russell pulled New York
together.
Frazier hit a basket and three
foul shots, fed Russell for two
baskets and Phil Jackson for an-
other as New York pulled out of
reach.
Walt Bellamy, who dominated
the offensive boards, led New
York with 26 points, 14 in the
second period.
It was the Knicks' first playoff
victory in New York since March
16, 1955.

ST. LOUIS - Zelmo Beaty
pitched in a career record 46
points leading the St. Louis Hawks
past the San Francisco Warriors
111-103 last night.
The victory gave St. Louis a
1-1 tie in the best-of-7 National
Basketball Association Western

Division playoff series.
San Francisco took the first
playoff game Friday night, 111-
106.
The Warriors came within a
point of St. Louis midway through
the last period, but Beaty ripped}
off 12 points to push the Hawks
far ahead and end the threat.
Jeff Mullins, San Francisco's
high scorer, with 33 points, scored
13 in the final period.
Beaty hit on 14 of his 25 field
goal attempts and 18 of 21 shots
from the free throw line.

SPORTS BULLETS:
Porsche Dominates
By The Associated Press
*.SEBRING, Fla.-Jo Siffert of Switzerland led a 1-2
Porsche victory parade last night in a brutal 12-hour Sebring
Auto Endurance Race in which Ford blamed its defeat on "a
bloody woman driver."
A charging Ford GT40 driven by Australian Paul Hawkins
was in second place in the ninth hour and creeping up on the
leading Porsche when a suspension snapped, sending it spinning
off the course and out of the action.
Bitterly, the 30-year-old Hawkins blamed the accident on
two pretty women pilots of an American Motors Javelin "who
drove like they were going to a bloody funeral."
Two five-liter Chevrolet Camaros, too big to qualify for
world manufacturer's points, took third and fourth places and
won the division : for U.S. Trans-American cars.
46SUN VALLEY, Idaho-Jean Claude Killy, France's triple
t gold medal winner of last month's Olympics, and Nancy Greene,
Canada's per snow queen, won the slalom events of the Amer-
ican International team ski meet Saturday.
His combined time was 110.91 seconds with Alfred Matt of
Austria second with 111.57. Rick Chaffee, a United States
Olympian from Rutland, Vt., was a surprising third.
