Assocation's eastern semifinal
RIORDAN and starter Bill Brad-
ley, both of whom were scoreless
during the first half, combined for
28 points after intermission as the
Knicks overcame a nine-point de-
ficit in the second half.
With Wes Unseld c ontrolling
the boards, and Gus Johnson
scoring 20 points, Baltimore man-
aged a 51-48 lead at halftime and
upped it to 71-64 as Earl Monroe
became hot from the field and
rookie Fred Carter sparked Balti-
more with his hustling play.
A stuffshot by Willis Reed, the
NBA's most valuable player, put
New York ahead for keeps at 87-
86, but the Bullets remained on-
ly one point behind at 94-93 be-'
fore a six-point streak by the

MADISON - The Philadelphia
76ers, paced by Billy Cunning-
ham's 37 points, beat the Mil-
waukee Bucks 112-105 last night
to even tpeir National Basketball
Association best-of-seven playoff
series at 1-1.
Cuningham, the NBA's third;-
highest scorer in the regular sea-
son, had a field day after Greg
Smith, the Buck who guards him
best, got into early foul trouble
with four in the first quarter.
IT WAS evident the 76ers had
changed their game plan from
defense to offense after they
dropped the first game of the
series Wednesday night 125-118.
Hal Greer added 24 points, in-
cluding 18 in the first half, as
Philadelphia stepped out to a 63-
57 lead at intermission. L
The game was marred by a
third-quarter fist fight between
Don Smith of the Bucks and
Philadelphia's Luke Jackson. Both
were thrown from the game.
Lew Alcindor scored 33 points
to lead the Bucks and Bob Dan-
dridge added 22.
This game, like the first, was
played in Madison because of the
unavailability of the Bucks' home
court in Milwaukee. The next two
will be in Philadelphia, and the
fifth in Madison.
PHILADELPHIA ran up a 32-23
lead after the first quarter as
Wally Jones, who finished with 12,
scored 10 points.
The 76ers' margin widened to
86-77at the end of three quarters.

Pacers, with Bill Keller and Roger
Brown hitting six for six from the
free-throw line, came from behind<
in the final minute and defeated

Basketball Association action last

Iwith a two-pointer with 1:09 left
in the game, and then he added
two foul shots to Keller's four.
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Miami
fought off a fourth-quarter rally
laset night to defeat the Carolina
Cougars 112-107 in, an American
Basketball Association game.
The Floridians led nearly all
the way, basing their attack on the
hot shooting of Don Sidle, with
31 for the game, and Don Free-
man, with 25.
But Carolina fought back in the
last quarter to tip the lead their
way briefly at 73-70. The rally
fizzled, however, as Miami found
the range again and spurted past
the Cougars for the win.

Michigan fell to tenth place as
most Wolverine grapplers missed
out on opportunities to wrestle
back. Meanwhile, Michigan State,
one of the pre-tourney favorites,
fell completely apart. The Spar-
tans fell to sixth place and ad:
vanced only one man, 118-pounder
Greg Johnson, into the finals.
Michigan's Jesse Rawls at 167

night and will wrestle today for
third place. Rawls lost to defend-
ing champion Jason Smith of
Iowa State 5-2 and Hoddy lost to
Ray Stapp, the 1968 champ from
Oklahoma State, 3-1.
The only other Michigan wrest-
ler to score points was 142-pound-

back after the man who had beat-
en him advanced to the finals.
King decisioned Joe Reid of Vir-
ginia Tech, 2-0, before losing to
Dan Silbaugh of Wyoming, 3-1.'
Iowa State's faculous Dan Gable
continued to pin everyone in sight.'
He has won his division the past
two years and has never lost. Ano-

MSU's Tom Milkovich, fell to Ok-
lahoma State's Darryl Keller.
To reach the' finals Hoddy de-
cisioned Smith of Ball State, 9-3,
in his first match two days ago.
That same afternoon 'he also

last five second and defeat Arish-
ita of Utah 3-2.a

inary matches. In his opening
bout, he pinned Richard Freeman
of Indiana State at 7:15. Then in
the evening, Rawls convincingly
decisioned Dan Marostica of Col-
orado State, 13-7.
Quinn was the other Wolverine
to win all his preliminary bouts.
Against Indiana State's Dan Lay-
ton, he grabbed a 7-6 victory. With
ten seconds left in his next match
against Dennis Brand of Okla-
homa, Quinn got a take down for
a 5-3 win.
Big Ten champion Tim C e c h

Air Force 11-10, then pinned Ja-
son Schlar of Oregon in overtime
at 1:47 in the preliminaries. Cech

left in the regulation bout to send
the match into overtime, and took
advantage of a mistake by Schlar
to force a fall. The Wolverine
dropped his third match to Rich-,
ard Meyer of Lehigh, 6-3.
King won his first two bouts al-
so, first with Leeper of Indiana
7-3; then with Warren Gamble of
Ball State, 8-4. He ran against
second-seeded Larry Owings of
Washington in the night-cap and

MIAMI - The Michigan Wol-
verine golf team came up with
four consistent rounds of golf yes-
terday and moved from eighth to
sixth place in the Miami Invita-
tional Golf Tournament, their first
outing of the new season.
KEITH MOHAN led the way
with a fine 74 and captain Randy
Erskine, Rock Pozza, and John
Roska added 76's for a 302 total
over the Biltmore Country Club
course. This was the same score
that the Wolverines shot Wednes-
day, the opening day of the tour-
ney on the same course.
Thursday, the linksmen were
hampered by high winds and pro-
duced a 312 total over the more
rugged Le Jeune Country Club,
the course that the golfers play
in today's final round.
With their 916 total, Michigan
is far behind the University of
Florida Gators who are setting
the tournament pace with a 871
strokes. The University of Miami,
Thursday's leader, dropped into
second while Florida State Uni-
versity, led by National Amateur
champion Steve Melnyk, are hold-
ing down the third spot.
IN THE INDIVIDUAL competi-
tion, Erskine sets the pace for the
Wolverines with 73-77-76-226. The
overall leader in the tourney is
stacy Russell of the University of
Florida who turned in a 214 total.
So far, Michigan has turned in
an excellent performance against
some of the best collegiate golfers
in the nation. The Wolverines en-
tered the tourney with a definite
disadvantage: lack of practice.
