Dolphins
the d/ei
W 111 t Bill Cusumano_
A study in
black and white
"Play three at home, four on the road and five when
you're behind."
Some coach, whose name is best forgotten, once made that
comment; it refers to the number of black players a basketball
coach should use in the game. It's an ugly adage, but unfor-
tunately, it holds true for many people.
On the other hand, though, there are clubs which it does
not apply to. In some cases that it is good, but in others, such as
Kentucky's, it is not. You see, Kentucky plays none at all times
for the very simple reason that Kentucky, being a school for
Christian, white gentlemen, has no black players at all.
Over the past few seasons the great Baron of the Bluegrass,
Adolph Rupp, has been finding out that such a policy is not
' conducive to winning championships and yesterday proved to
be the last nail in the coffin. Jacksonville's Big Brokers, both
black and white, took the Baron's good, but not good enough,
lily-white team right out of the NCAA tournament.
There had been a lot of doubts about Jacksonville before
the regionals started but the Dolphins have proven them-
selves. They went under the gun twice in true pressure
situations and showed themselves to be the better team in
each case. It is a small school with a team that has come
out of nowhere in just four years.
Jacksonville's rise came because coach Joe Williams, a young
aggressive man, went out and got the best players he could
find anywhere, regardless of color, and despite being in a state
where segregation has been prevalent among athletic teams.
Williams disregarded this tenet of the South, though, and has
created -a team with true aspirations for a national title.
It is just not possible to win a title with an all-white (or,
incidentally, an all-black) team; those days are in the past. But
the past is where Adolph Rupp lives and no one can make an
argument for saying that radical policy was a deciding factor in
determining the Mideast Regional Champion.
Kentucky had a great team but the Wildcats had started
with a big strike against them; a ridiculous recruiting policy had
cost them the possible services of excellent athletes. And when
the chips finally fell it was not just Jacksonville's great size
or the fine backcourt work of Rex Morgan and Vaughn Wede-
king or the clutch performances of Chip Dublin and Greg Nel-
son that made the difference. The difference was also caused
because all of the above factors were made possible by the fact
that Jacksonville is a team of great players, not a team of great
white players.
One would think that the Baron and his cronies in the
South, if they wouldn't integrate for more human reasons,
would have at least learned their lesson from the whomping
that Texas Western gave Kentucky in the 1966 finals, Ob-
viously, they didn't. Or, did they? It seems that Tom Payne,
a 7-2 black center, is now a freshman at Kentucky and
Rupp is counting on him to replace Dan Issel.
Maybe, just maybe, the South is going to start playing bas-
ketball on decent terms with the rest of the country. Policies
such as Rupp's have been dead letters for winners for over ten
years and all one has to do to prove it is look at the four clubs
playing for the title next week.
Now, with the apparent change by Kentucky and others,
maybe the policy mentioned at the beginning of this column
will become a dead letter for everyone, both winners and
losers. It's about time. That's what made the Big Brokers'
win so sweet.

UCLA in semi-finals

All-American lost for
tourney in Bonnie win

By The Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Jack-
sonville continued its clim b
in major college basketball
yesterday stumbling to a stun-
ning 106-100 win over Ken-
tucky in the NCAA Mideast
Regional Final.
Rex Morgan fired in 28 points,
and 7-foot-2 Artis Gilmore made
24 points and seized 20 rebounds
to move the Dolphins into the
NCAA semifinals next week
against St. Bonaventure at Col-
lege Park, Md.
Top-ranked Kentucky, suffering
its second loss against 26 wins,
played the last 10 minutes without
All-American Dan Issel. The 6-8
Wildcat's star fouled out with 28
points and 10 rebounds.
The Southeasterin Conference
champions also lost starter Mike
Pratt and substitutes Terry Mills
and Larry Steele via fouls. The
four scored 63 of Kentucky's total.
Despite their foul trouble t h e
Wildcats roared from 10 points be-
hind with 5:54 to play and closed
the gap to two points three times.
Jacksonville, now 26-1, moved in
front 34-27 late in the first half,
mainly on the work of Chip Dub-
lin. He scored 11 points in the last
12 minutes of the first half to
spring the Dolphins in front at
halftime 52-45.
Jacksonville swelled its lead to
66-53 in the first four minutes of
the second half. The Dolphins
stayed from five to 11 points on
top until Kentucky made its last
bid.
With Gilmore the controlling
factor, Jacksonville had a 47-44
edge in rebounding. The Dolphins
outshot the Wildcats from t h e
field 56.5 to 44.9 per cent.
Bruins roll on
SEATTLE - Curtis Rowe and
Sidney Wicks, the front wheels of
UCLA's incredible basketball ,ma-
chine, rolled the Bruins to a 101-
79 blitz over Utah State yesterday
in the championship game of the
NCAA Western Regional Tourna-
ment.
Wicks and Rowe each had 26
points as the five-time national
champion Bruins blew apart an
Aggie team that had stayed skin-
tight with them through the first
half. The score was tied 13 times
during that span and only a
seven-point spurt by the Bruins
gave them a 51-44 halftime lead.
The performance by Wicks and
Rowe offset an inspired effort by
Utah State junior Mary Roberts,
who finished with 33 points to
lead all scorers.
Roberts had scored 17 of his
points in the first half and drove
Wicks to the bench with three
fouls before the game was 10 min-
utes old. Then Rowe, typical of

the defending champion Bruins,
took up the slack as he battled
Roberts for rebounds and netted
15 points before intermission. Four
of those points came in the two-
minute spurt that gave the Bruins
their halftime edge and put UCLA
ahead for good.

Drake dropped
LAWRENCE, Kan. - Muscular
Sam Lacey pounded Drake on the
inside and clever Jimmy Collins
softened the Bulldogs on the out-
side, leading fifth-ranked New
Mexico State to an 87-78 victory
and the NCAA Midwest Regional
basketball championship yester-
day.
Lacey, the Aggies' 6-10, 235-
pound senior center, pulled down
24 rebounds - one short of the
record for this regional.
Collins, 6-2 senior guard, scored
26 points, most of them at crucial
times, when Drake threatened to
come back after falling behind
midway in the first half.
Drake's only leads were a couple
of slender advantages with about
8 minutes gone in the game.
Besides his 24 rebounds Lacey
also contributed 20 points for New
Mexico State, which had a 46-37
advantage in rebounding and out-
shot Drake from the field 53 per
cent to 41.
New Mexico State advances to
the NCAA finals next Thursday
and Saturday at College Park, Md.

COLUMBIA, S.C. {A'}-Third-
ranked St. Bonaventure mov-
ed to the NCAA basketball
tournament semifinals with a
97-74 rout of Villanova yester-
day, but in the process lost
All-American Bob Lanier with
a right knee injury.
The 6-foot-11, 175-pound La-
nier fell to the floor under the
Villanova basket with 9:30 to play.
He returned for 30 seconds, then
left for good with 26 points.
Later, Coach Larry Weise said
Lanier suffered a torn ligament
and he will be operated on "as
soon as arrangements can be
made" in Buffalo, N.Y.
St. Bonaventure plays Jackson-
ville, the Mideastychampion,
Thursday night at College Park;
Maryland.

CALL

By BILL DINNER
Contributing Sports Editor
special To The Daily
DENVER, Colo.-The Wisconsin
Badgers in a tight and a highly
emotional contest downed the de-
fending champs of the University
of Denver. 3-2 last night to win
the western finals of the WCHA
playoffs.
Wisconsin will join Michigan
Tech in the NCAA finals as the
WCHA's representative in Lake
Placid Thursday.
Michigan Tech earned their
place as they downed league lead-
ing Minnesota 6-5 in the eastern
sectional playoffs of WCHA play.
, Cornell and Clarkson will repre-
sent the eastern conference in the
finals.
The Badgers were the, first to
get on the board as John Jagger
passed to Bob Tossenroth at the
point. Tossenroth moved down the
left side and pushed the puck to
Murray Heatley who snuck in the
middle. Heatley then marched in,
all alone, to beat Pioneer goalie.
Ron Grahame, for the score at
5:59.

Wisconsin upped their lead to
two while a man short, at 15:30
as Pat Lannom passed to Jim
Boyd just outside the Pioneer blue
line. Lannom took two strides and
let a screamer loose toward Gra-
hame. Pioneer defenseman Mike
Christie went down in attempt to
block it, but it wisked through his;

legs and under Grahame's skate
for the tally.
Lannom had a similar break
away only seconds before, but was
pulled down from behind.
Wisconsin had a man advant-
age for four minutes and Denver
two, but solid penalty killing saved
the teams both times.
