finals

By The Associated Press
COLLEGE PARK - UCLA,
seeking its sixth national title!
in seven years, and newcomer
Jacksonville, advanced to the
finals of the NCAA basketball
championships last night.
4 After Jacksonville squeezed past
out-manned and foul-plagued St.
Bonaventure 91-83 in the opener
of the semifinal roupd UCLA's
Bruins beat off a belated New
Mexico'State rally in the nightcap
for a 93-77 victory.
Artis Gilmore, Jacksonville's 7-2
center, scored 29 points and grab-
bed 21 rebounds to lead the Dol-
phins after the outside shooting of
Vaughn Wedeking had enabled
Jacksonville to overcome an early
lead by the inspired Bonnies.
St. Bonaventure, playing with-
out injured All-American Bob
.f Lanier, and giving up more than
seven inches per man on the front-

line, pulled to within 79-75 with
2:07 left in the last gasp of a
valiant effort.
Gilmore scored 19 of his 29
points in thersecond half after
Vaughn and Rex Morgan enabled
the Dolphins to overcome an early
St. Bonaventure lead.
Matt Gantt, a 6-5 sophomore
playing center in place of Lanier
who underwent knee surgery last
Sunday, after being injured in the
Eastern final last Saturday, was,
a terror in the early going as the
underdog Bonnies rolled up a 13-3
lead.
Gantt scored 14 of his 16 pointsI
and grabbed four rebounds before
going to the bench with 9:28 to
play in the first half after draw-
ing his third personal foul.
Greg Gary also was taken out
with three fouls after only seven
minutes of the opening period.
Jacksonville, 27-1, and ranked
No. 4 in the, nation, settled down

# The gutsy Bonnies..
. .!upstage Cinderella
COLLEGE PARK, Maryland - As I'm writing this, UCLA is
wrapping up its 23rd straight NCAA tournament game. The
Bruins are easily manhandling New Mexico State aid seem as-
sued of another NCAA title.
But the story tonight is not the winner, because it was a
loser, St. Bonaventure, which stole the hearts of the crowd. The
Bonnies took the floor without big cat Lanier and made Jack-
sonville scramble all the way,, The Dolphins could only win by
eight, 91-83, and actually were lucky to get that big of a margin.
St. Bonaventure gave up 29 inches to the Big Broker's ,
starting five, but made up for it with deadly shooting and
fantastic leaping. Greg Gary and Mat Gantt were so tough
on the boards that they forced 7 footer Pembroke Burrows
out of the game. Gantt even blocked enough of Burrow's
shots to make the giant think that he had Spalding written
all over his face.
Only the numerous fouls that Jacksonville was able to draw
with its big front line gave the Dolphins the win. Jacksonville
l it for an amazing 35 free throws to only 15 for the Bonnies as
four men fouled out futily swatting at Artis Gilmore.
St. Bonaventure was a team with a mission, and the whole
field house was reminded of it as a giant Bonnie cheering section
kept chanting, "Win one for Bob." It appeared like they might
pull a miracle for the first ten minutes of the game. St. Bona-
venture roared out to a 14-3 lead and kept the Dolphins at bay
until midway into the first half. Then Vaughn Wedeking began
to hit from the outside and Gilmore went to work under the
basket. Jacksonville finally took a 26-24 lead with 7:37 remaining
in the half and managed to hang on precariously until the final
horn.
As the game progressed the enthusiasm of the Bonnies' fans
spread to the remainder of the sell-out crowd. People who had
felt cheated by the absence of Lanier suddenly placed Jackson-
ville in the role of a villain. People began to cheer, "who's Artis
Gilmore" and "Lanier is number one."
Jacksonville fans caught up in the enthusiasm of making
the finals for the first time began to chant, "We're number
one." It was not a wise move. Thousands of boos drowned out
the Dolphin's proclamation.
The upset was not to come, though, because miracles
are not reality. So the Bonnies now become the tragic heroes
of this year's finals, much as Noel Bradley's Princeton team
was inY'65, Jerry Chamber's Utah club in 1966. The Bonnies'
situation got so bad that they didn't even have hot water
for their showers after the game, and the plumber had to be
called to their locker room. It probably wouldn't have made
any difference though, because the Bonnie players couldn't
have felt anything after their emotional letdown.
A courageous team and coach will always win over a crowd
and there is n~o doubt that St. Bonaventure did so tonight. When
the Bonnies clash with New Mexico State in Saturday's con-
solation game the Aggies will find themselves in the same posi-
tion that Jacksonville was tonight. The fans will all want a
St. Bonaventure win. Coach Moise and his, team will try to
oblige.
One can only speculate upon what would have happened
if Lanier had been able to play. He is such a great individual
and has such a fine supporting cast that St. Bonaventure might
have derailed UCLA. Even if. they hadn't matches between
Lanier and Gilmore or Lanier and Sidney Wicks would have
been classic. But it was not in the cards for Lanier to be here,
but he still made his presence felt in the play of his teammates
and the reactions of the crowd.
The. 1970 St. Bonaventure team will be remembered long
after some champions have faded into the oblivion of the scrap-
books of Alumni and morgues of newspapers.

after a ragged start and tied the
score at 24-24.
The Bonnies, who had four
players foul out, trailed 42-34 at
halftime and fell behind by 12
points after the intermission be-
fore they rallied behind Bill Kal-
baugh and Mike Kull.
St. Bonaventure, ranked third
in the nation, lost only its second
game in 27 starts, snapping a 13-
game win streak. It was Jackson-
ville's 14th straight victory.
The Bonnies did not attempt to
play ball control against the na-
tion's tallest team but instead,
came out battling for control of
the boards.
Pembrook Burrows, Jackson-
ville's seven-foot forward, had
only four rebounds at halftime
and sat out much of the second
period in foul difficulty.
John Vallely scored 23, Sidney
Wicks 22 and Henry Bibby 19 for
second-ranked UCLA, which led
68-49 with 14 minutes left only to
have the Aggies pull to within
78-69 behind the deadly jump
shooting of Jimmy Collins.
Collins scored 28 for the fifth-
ranked Aggies, who lost to the
Bruins the past two, years in the
Western regionals.
Tomorrow afternoon's finals will
provide a contrast between the
strict' discipline of UCLA's veteran
coach John Wooden and the easy
style of young Joe Williams of
Jacksonville which beat top-rank-
ed Kentucky in the Midwest re-
gionals.
It will also provide an ironic
twist for Wooden who during the
past three seasons of national
titles had big Lew Alcindor to
worry the opposition. Now he will
have to defend against two Jack-
sonville seven-footers.
.New Mexico State trailed only
48-41 at halftime, but UCLA
jumped in front 55-43 after 1%

Marquette rips LSU

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - The Marquette
Warriors, clamping another frus-1
trating night on Pete Maravich,
beat Louisiana State at its own
high-scoring game 101-79 last
night and advanced to the final
of the National Invitation Basket-
ball Tournament.
The Warriors, the tourney favo-
rite, will go for their first NIT
title against St. John's, N.Y.
Marquette, ranked No. 8 in the
country, used its tenth-best de-
fense in the nation to hold Pistol
Pete to 20 points while Joe Thomas
sent the Warriors winging with 28
points in a surprisingly easy
triumph.
Maravich, hounded often by as
many as three men and showing
only rare flashes of the brilliance
that made him a three-time All-
American, had only 13 points as
LSU fell behind 49-42 at the half.
Only his four points late in the
game kept him from the lowest
scoring total in his career as
major college basketball's all-time
high scorer.
St. John's Edges Army
NEW YORK - Rich Lyons, a
sophomore guard, sank two free
throws with one second remaining

and lifted St. John's, N.Y., to a
60-59 victory over Army last night
in a bruising 'National Invitation
Basketball Tournament semifinal
battle between two of the nation's
defensive teams.
Lyons, whose only basket of the
second half had put St. John's
ahead 58-56 with 2:51 remaining,
missed a field goal try after an
out of bounds play with four
seconds left.

But he was fouled on the play
by Jim Oxley; who had given the
Cadets a 59-58 edge with a basket
for the last of his 18 points with
1:32 remaining of the final hectic
minutes.
After Oxley's basket, Army stole
the ball, but Mike Gyoval, who
also had 18 points, missed a free
throw with 45 seconds to go , giv-
,ing St. John's its final chance.

Special To The Daily
NORMAL, Ill. - In spite of
financial difficulties which only
allowed the Michigan's womens
swim team to send seven perform-
ers to the first national meet ever
held for women, coach Sandi Hit-
telman's talented tankers stand in
fourth place after completion of
the first day's competition. The
Mermaids trail Arizona St., West-
chester, Pa., and Colorado St.
while Michigan State's womens
swim team ranks fifth.
Bright spot of the day was the
Mermaid's third place finish in
the 200-yard medley relay. An
entry of Jan Pfleegan, Johanna
Cooke, Barb Patterson, and Mary
Bennett turned in a respectable
time of 1:59.3, only seconds be-
hind the winners. Prior to this
meet, the team had a, best time
this season of only 2:08 flat in the
relay.
