a Boston pass and set up an Eddie
Miles basket, and Detroit went onĀ±
to outscore the Celtics 12-4 to
wrap up the game.
Detroit jumped to a 67-58 half
time lead as rookie Jimmy Walker
hit 12 of his 14 points in the sec-
ond quarter.
Near the end of the third quar-
ter, Boston player-coach Bill Rus-
sell and forward Tom Sanders each
drew their fifth personal foul.
Both players, along with Bailey
Howell of Boston, eventually fouled
out.
Bing led Detroit with 24 points
and DeBusschere added 23. Sam
Jones had 18 for Boston.
Bing and the rest of the Piston
team will travel to Boston in high
hopes of keeping up the momen-
tum which shoved them ahead at
the end of last night's game, and
which lifted them into the fourth

and final playoff spot at the end
of the regular season.
They got that spot by beating the
Chicago Bulls in do-or-die game in
which the winner had the right to
the playoff position.
The two teams meet again to-
morrow in Boston.

MSU Boycott
When a playoff was proposed,
Michigan State threatened to
boycott, saying it already had
qualified for national tournament.
Michigan's Coach Newt Loken
announced t h a t sidehorseman
Mike Carpenter decied to quit
athletic competition "for personal
reasons." Carpenter had competed
with all-around Sid Jensen for the
number two spot in the sidehorse.
As a replacement, Loken has
called on the services of senior
Dave Geddes. He didn't feel that
the change would hurt the team.
"Mike never achieved the scores
he showed in the beginning of
the season," noted Loken, "The
reason Geddes didn't compete this
'year was that he was a senior
and felt that sophomore Carpen-
ter could score as well as he
could."
Loken further observed, "Since
Geddes began working out, he has
looked very good. He should be
able to score as well as Carpenter,
and I wouldn't be surprised if he
scores better than Carpenter has."'

LOS ANGELES - Lew Alcindor,
UCLA's 7-foot 11/2 star who led
the Bruins to their second stragiht
NCAA basketball title, received
two honors yesterday.
He was voted the outstanding
player in the NCAA championships

which ended Saturday
also the Southern
player-of-the-year.

At the meeting of the South-
ern California Basketball Writers,
where the latter honor was an-
nounced, Coach Bill Van Breda
Kolff of the Los Angeles Lakers
was asked what he thought of Al-
cindor.
"That boy is frightening," he
replied. "I think each team in the
National Basketball Association
should put up $10,000 and buy him
a little villa at Mallorca (Calif.)
and let Lew live there year after
year. That is, unless we finish last
next season."
Alcindor has a year of eligibil-
ity remaining at UCLA and under
draft rules of the NBA, the team
finishing last has the first draft
pick.
Lew scored an average of 26.2
points and 16.4 rebounds per game
in leading UCLA to a 29-1 record.
In the tournament windup
where the Bruins beat Houston
and North Carolina, Alcindor hit
for 53 points and grabbed 34 re-
bounds.
