Purdue downs Marquette;
Mount hits jumper at horn

From Wire Service Reports
MADISON--Rick Mount's jum-
per- at the buzzer gave Purdue a
4 75-73 overtime victory over an
underrated Marquette team in the
Mideast Regional final yesterday
at the University of Wisconsin
field house.
The Boilermakers appeared to
be headed for an easy win as they
streaked to a 9-1 lead and in-
creased it to 14-3 before the War-
riors began their slow comeback.
Led by George Thompson and
Dean Meminger, the Warriors
pecked away at the Purdue lead
and were within five, 35-30. at the
half.
The surge continued and Mar-
quette pulled to within one, 40-39,
before Herman Gilliam, Purdue's
leading rebounder who had been
sidelined with a sprained ankle

and was not expected to see much
action, inspired the Boilermakers
back into a six point bulge, 46-40.
At that point the Marquette press
began to work and the Warriors
scored ten of the next twelve
points to take the lead, 50-48, for
the first time in the game.
After that the game turned into
a real barnburner, with the teams
trading baskets until Marquette
gained possession of the ball with
about four minutes remaining in
the game and leading 60-59.
Then little Dean Meminger put
on quite a show. With almost no
help from his teammates, the
little guard froze the ball until
only 1:15 remained in the contest,
at which point Marquette called
time out.
When' the time out ended, the
Boilermakers immediately fouled
Meminger. When Meminger sank
both halves of the one and one to
give Marquette a three point bulge,
things looked bleak for the Big
Ten's representative in the NCAA
tournament.
Things looked bleaker still for
the Boilermakers after Mount
missed a shot and Thompson pull-
ed the rebound down, but the out-
look brightened just a little when
Meminger missed a free throw and
Jerry Johnson, subbing for in-
jured center Chuck Bavis, pulled
down the rebound.
The Boilermakers crept to with-
in one point with a little less than
30 seconds remaining in the sec-
ond half when George Faerber
rebounded a Mount shot for two
points. Then Faerber played the
hero's role when he stole the ball

With six seconds left, Memingcr
missed a jump shot, but Ric Cobb
grabbed the rebound and was foul-
ed by Johnson. Cobb made the
first free throw but missed the
second, tying the cage contest.
In the overtime Purdue jumped
into a quick four point lead on
baskets by Gilliam and Weather-
ford; however, Marquette bautled
back once again to tie the score.
Then the two teams traded bas-
kets until Mount's shot proved
decisive at the buzzer.

COLLEGE PARK, Md.-Charlie
Scott's 20-foot jumper with one
second left gave North Carolinaj
an 87-85 come-from-behind vic-
tory over Davidson yesterday for
the NCAA Eastern Regional bas-
ketball championship.
The basket by Scott, a U.S.-
Olympian, was his eighth in the
last 10 minutes as he rallied the
fourth-ranked Tar Heels to vic-
tory for the third consecutive
year in the Eastern Regionals.
Scott finished with 32 points, 23
in the last half.
"Give Charles Scott the ball
with eight seconds to play."
That, in a nutshell, was the
strategy North Carolina Coach
Dean Smith used in guiding his!
basketball team over Davidson.
"We have practiced that play!
often," Smith said. "Many timesj
in practice Charles will pass thel
ball off. This is one time I'm glad
he shot."
"Charles is my most valuable
player and he certainly should
be the most valuable player of
this tournament," Smith said.
Fifth-ranked Davidson, which
also lost to North Carolina in
last year's tournament, led 85-82
with 2:20 remaining after a driv-
ing layup by Doug Cook.
Cook was charged with his fifth
foul on the play, however, and
teammate Jerry Kroll also fouled
out with 1:15 remaining.
North Carolina controlled the
ball the rest of the way, calling
time out wtih 13 seconds left to
set up the play fof Scott. The

bled to the head of the foul lane
and let fly with his one-handed
jumper as time expired.
North - Carolina, the AtlanticI
Coast Conference champions with
a 27-3 record, trailed through most
of the first half but pulled ahead
47-46 at intermission behind the
shooting of Bill Bunting, who
made 18 of his 22 points in the
opening period.
The Wildcats muffed two one-
and-one free throw chances in
the closing two minutes when the
Tar Heels, in a favorable foul
situation, deliberately fouled Mike
O'Neill. O'Neill missed the first
free throw with two minutes re-
maining and another with 1:20
left.
Scott's jumper after the first
miss; tied the score 85-85 with
1:49 to play and Kroll was charg-
ed with an offensive foul with
1:15 to play after O'Neill's second
miss, giving North Carolina con-
trol of the ball for the final shot.
Mike Maloy, Davidson's high
scoring junior from New York,
scored 25 points. Cook tallied 18
before fouling out and Kroll had
16.
The Tar Heels were in a bonus
free throw situation with 14:26
left to play, but converted only
one extra foul toss.
The loss snapped a 12-game
winning streak for Davidson, while
the Tar Heels advanced to the
national semifinals for the third
consecutive year. North Carolina
finished runner-up to UCLA last
year.

Asked about the possibility of
meeting with UCLA, which beat
North Carolina last year for the
national championship, Smith
said, "A funny thing happened to
us two years ago.
"We just thought about going
to the national finals and worry-
ing about UCLA so Dayton knock-
ed us off.
"Last year 1we made it to the
finals and you know what hap-
pened then. So I am not worry-
ing about UCLA, They are not
on our schedule. We have to beat
the Mideast regionals winner
first."
Asked if senior Dick Grubar, a
starter all season who hurt his
leg last week, would be able to
play next week, Smith said, "I
don't see how he can play,"
