Purdue's underdog Boiler-
makers scorched the nets with
a 24-5 blitz early ip the second
half and coasted to a shock-
ingly easy 92-65 victory over
bridesmaid North Carolina in
the first of two NCAA semi-
final games played at Louis-
ville's Freedom Hall.
It marked the third time in as
many years that the Tar Heels,
who led only once in the entire
game, had lost in either .the semi-
finals or finals of the NCAA play-
Purdue, led as usual by Rick,
Mount who had 36 points, com-
pletely^ dominated all phases of
the game. They controlled both
backboards and forced an unbe-
lievable 28 turnovers from the
normally well - disciplined Tar
4 Heels.
The game started slowly with
both teams tight and sloppy. Then
little Bill Keller popped in three
straight field goals to start Purdue
rolling and Moupt began to hit
and Purdue surged to a 35-24 lead.
North Carolina was unable to
do anything right during this
stretch, and Purdue's all-confer-
ence-forward Herman Gilliam was
doing a great job on Charlie
Scott, North Carolina's All-Ameri-
can, holding 'him to just two field
goals in the first 18 minutes, and
15 points overall.
When Purdue Coach George.
King took Mount out for a rest,
the Boilermakers faltered and
North Carolina began to move. Led
by Bill Bunting and Scott the Tar
Heels pulled to within four, 39-35,
at the half.
At the start of the second half,
the teams exchanged buckets, and
Swhen N orth Carolina's Bunting

Then Mount, the blond bomber
from Lebanon, Ind., burned in six
straigh$ points to ignite the fire
and Purdue was off to the races.

throughout the game by cold out-
side shooting, went completely

do no wrong. Mount and Gilliam

Gilliam seemed completely recov-

had hobbled him for the past
month. Gilliam was all over the
floor causing turnovers and setting
up Purdue's sharpshooters, and

Purdue, the nation's. leading of-

only average on defense. Yet' it
was their ballhawking defense that
provided most of the difference in
the game.
North Carolina's Rusty Clark,

some problems inside, but their

Benedict blames mistakes on de-!
fense for helping to take the Wol-
verines to a dismal 1-9 record on£
their last spring trip, stating "Ev-
ery time we made a mistake it
seemed to cost us t w o or three
runs. As far as this spring tripi
goes I'd have to say that because
we re not close to being ready ourz
pitching will be our main concern.
"Our defense may be weak fromI
time to time when the, boys won't'
react properly or quickly in. cer-
tain situations and when our shal-
low pitching staff is severely test-
ed. I'm not too worried about our
hitting though. We'll have some
good days and some bad ones at
the bat but that will work itself
out eventually."
In the nine day trip Michigan
will play Arizona State, Arizona,
Southern Illinois, and Wyoming,
four teams that will provide tough

competition for Coach Benedict's
club. The Wolverines will p 1 a y

the first time in three tries, meet
for the championship Saturday
afternoon on national television.

Tennesee and Army will play for
