er by . .. guess who. Russell had
put in a fast 13 points in the 7'
hot minutes and 51 seconds it took
them to pull even for the first
time since they led 6-4 in the
opening minutes.
But though there was no rela-
tive momentum on either side at
this point, the Blue couldn't move
out with Kentucky's booming
jumpers taking a heavy toll.
The game was not won on over-
whelming speed, nor on unexpect-
ed rebounding, but on a shooting
slump that has gone back to the
Michigan State game. It was only
sprprising that the Wolverines
could stay as close as they did
with their accuracy being so far
below that of their conference=
winning norm.
Still the battle went down to

In the first half Michigan got
Just what they expected . .. al-
most. Kentucky started of f with
their "trap" (Rupp's term for a
sliding zone) on defense, and set
up double picks for Riley and
Dampier from the sides on of-
fense. The Wolverines went man-
to man on defense and figured
that their rebounding advantage
would take care of itself at both
ends of the court. But the ball
seemed to have another plan in
mind, and it took every unexpect-
ed bounce off the rims and off
the court..
But the story again was in the
shooting from the floor. The
Wildcats popped for a hot 51.4
per cent off their screens and a
couple of well-run fast breaks. But
the Wolverihes struggled at a 35.9,
mark as Jim Myers and Clawson
were again off their expected
games. -
Russell did not get into open
of his usual spurts in the opening
stanza, but kept it steady from the
field. In the last five minutes,
however, his psuedo-drives toward
the basket from around the top of
the key caught the Wildcats one
man short a couple of times un-
derneath. Clawson and Darden
were in good position for a pair
of cripples.
The only thing that mattered
for the Blue-on the short end of
a 42-32 score by the end of the
first half--was whether Clawson
and Myers could break out of
their shooting slumps and Darden
could get some much-needed pow-
ed power back on the boards for
them.
It didn't happen.

Adolph Rupp: I'm very happy
because I didn't think we had
the size to go against them.
Our ball handling paid off. We
fooled them a little with our
defense but there were still some
holes in it. They were scoring
some easy baskets underneath
because our wing men didn't
get under to cover for it. In the
time out near the end we set our
defense back a little because
they were-shooting over us. We
moved Jaracz back to block the
passing line. There were times
that we got careless. Dampier
threw one pass that looked like
he was trying to pass to me. We
felt Western Kentucky's zone
disturbed Michigan so we used
our trap defense to make them
throw it high. We knew if we
took them man to man, Cazzie
would beat us. Outside of our
mistakes-and hell, Yankees
throw it away too-we showed a
lot of poise.

Dave Strack: We were tough
as hell in the second half. So
were they. I wouldn't say any-
thing against them. I'm tremen-
dously proud of our effort. Each
and every player gave every-
thing and something more.
There was no better player than
Riley was out there tonight.
Riley got the critical one. We
had the momentum when we
went ahead by one in the sec-
ond half. We had the momen-
tum, but I don't know what hap-
pened. We had good shots but
couldn't capitalize. They were a
great team and didn't succumb.
The seven kids that are leaving
have done a lot for the Univer-
sity, and I'm eternally grateful
to them. I was proud of the
way our club came back tonight.
Anybody know where I can get
another Russell-on the streets
of Chicago or anywhere?

might have been conceded. Michi-
gan stayed five to six points
off Kentucky's pace but stayed
there too long. The last 3:26 of
the game were spent in a lot of
rough scrambling.
A couple of missed foul shots
by Thompson and Clawson blunted
the final Blue assault, and Pat
Riley was, as ever, on the prowl

was the roaring rebounder for
most of the half the crazy ball
was back to its old tricks in the.

possession and chance to use their
slick stall to end the contest.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Duke's Blue
Devils raced to a 16-point first half
lead, but had to come from behind
in the closing minutes to defeat
Syracuse 91-81 last night and win
the NCAA Eastern Regional bas-
ketball playoffs.
A capacity crowd of 12,400 in
Reynolds Coliseum saw Duke
charge back after Syracuse went
ahead 74-72 with 5:43 to play.
Jack. Marin, with 22 points, and
Bob Verga, with 21, were the top
scorers as Duke snapped back late
in the game to seal the victory and
earn a berth in the National semi-
finals at College Park, Md., next
Friday.,
Duke swept into a 19-8 lead in
the first six minutes of play as
Steve Vacendak scored n i n e
points. He finished with 19 for
the night and his ball handling
was a big factor in the Blue Devil
victory.
Verga~ sank a goal with 9:25
left in the first half to send Duke
into a 16 point lead, 29-13.
Duke got rolling again and held
a 44-37 edge at halftime.
Syracuse, unable to penetrate
the tight Duke zone defense in the
first half, came back strong after
intermission behind George Hick-
er, Richard Dean and Jim Boe-
heim. Hicker scored 17 points,
Dean 16 and Boeheim 15.
Syracuse All-America Dave Birg
was held to 10 points.
Syracuse tied the score at 53-53
on a long shot by Dick Cornwall.
Marin sank a goal for Duke, but
Hicker tied it 55-55, then Vaughn
Harper put the Orangemen ahead
on a three-point play, 58-55.
Duke then stormed home behind
Marin, Verga and Vacendak.

*LUBBOCK, Tex.-WMillie Cager
hit the deciding goal with 32 sec-
onds remaining in the second over-
time period, lifting Texas Western
past Kansas 81-80 last night in
the final of the NCAA Midwest
Regional basketball playoffs.
The victory shot the third-rank-
ed Miners into the national semi-
finals next weekend at College
Park, Md.
Cager's two-pointer offset a
last-minute scoring spree by Kan-
sas' Roger Lopes, who pumped in
three field goals and a free throw
in the final 56 seconds after the
Miners had opened a six-point
lead.
The Jayhawks, ranked No. 4 na-
tionally, had what would have

been a winning 25-footer by Jo
Jo White with one second to go in
the first overtime disallowed. An
official ruled White stepped out of
