Both have won national cham-
pionships in previous years, but
Indian's Ken Sitzberger is the
favorite in both the one- and
three-meter events which he cap-
tured last year. Bruce Brown of
Michigan is expected to be his
closest competitor, and Fred
Brown gives the Wolverines a little
more depth.
But the Hoosiers have four
other swimmers who garnered first
places last year. Three members ofj
the 400-yard medley relay team,

Tom Tretheway, Pete Hammer,
and Bob Williamson, are returning
to defend their title. Tretheway,
in addition, is the current title-
holder in the 200-yard breast-
stroke.
The only champion Indiana lost
was Fred Schmidt, winner of both
butterfly events. To replace him,
however, the Hoosiers have Aus-
tralian Kevin Berry, gold medalist
in the Olympics, Bill Utley, Ken
Webb, and Bob Windle, all Big
Ten champions, add to the Hoos-
iers' hopes.
Michigan State has Gary Dilley
returning to defend two back-
stroke titles, and he is backed by
a strong corps of freestylers.
Eastern Freestylers Gone
This year Yale, because of the'
Ivy League's grade-point feud
with the NCAA, will not be par-
ticipating, and this means that

the likes of Don Schollander and
a group of the nation's best free-
stylers will leave a few points for
other teams to pick up. The Wol-
verines hope to take the lion's
share of them.
Besides Robie, Michigan has
captain Rich Walls, Bill Farley,
Bob Hoag, Bill Groft, and Ken
Wiebeck competing in freestyle
events. The Wolverines have added
strength in the backstroke with
Russ Kingery and Rees Orland, in
the butterfly with Tom O'Malley
backing up Robie, and Paul
Scheerer in the breaststroke.
Wolverines 'Fire Up'
This team has been fired up to
come back and beat Indiana since
the night of its disappointing loss
ito the Hoosiers in the Big Tens.
And the predominant feeling ris
that Indiana can be whipped be-
cause the NCAAs are more of a

Trojans
contest of the stars rather than
depth.
So the battle for first place will
be among the same three teams as
last year. Southern Methodist will
sport a talented team, but is not
expected to be any great threat to
the big names.
An interesting aspect of the
meet is that the Academy pool is
at an altitude of 7,060 feet, nearly
the same as that in Mexico City,
site of the 1968 Olympic Games.
Coaches, athletes, and trainers will
be paying close attention to any
effects this has on the swimmers.
And for the first time in, a na-
tional championship meet the
electric timing system invented at
Michigan will be used, virtually
eliminating all possibilities of ties.
The system is accurate to within
five one-millionths of a second in
judging swimmers' finishes.

DENVER--Cazzie Russell, Uni-'
versity 'of Michigan All-America,
whipped in 25 points to lead Dear-j
born, Mich., to a come-from-be-
hind 71-67 victory over Bartles-
ville, Okla., last night for the
championship of the 59th National
AAU Basketball Tournament.
Denver captured third place
with a 77-74 victory over Akron,
Ohio, in an earlier game.
The Oklahomans held Russell in
check during the early going but
he broke loose in the late stages
of the opening half to pull Dear-
born to within one point, 34-33,
at halftime after trailing by as
much as 11 points.
Bartlesville pulled back into a
six-point lead early in the second
half as Ray Carey and Bobby
Rascoe hit from behind screens.
Dearborn caught up at 47-47 on

a follow shot by Russell.
The game was tied at 49, 55 and
59 before a jump shot by Dorrie
Murray of Detroit University gave
Dearborn the lead for good at 61-
59 with less than eight minutes
left. A fantastic follow shot by
Russell moments.later gave Dear-
born a 63-59 lead.

defeated the Celtics 107-103 last
night in the opener of the Na-
tional Basketball Association East-
ern Division semifinal playoffs.
Adrian Smith joined Oscar Rob-
ertson and Jerry Lucas in pow-
ering the Royals to a 1-0 lead in

took turns in wrecking Boston
hopes as they came through with
clutch field goals after Boston's
Bill Russell and Larry- Siegfried
closed the gap to 87-86 with
fourth-quarter fielders.
The Celtics managed to equal
the Royals with 41 field goals.
However, Cincinnati cashed 25 of
30 free throws while Boston man-
aged only 21 of 36.
The two teams meet in the sec-
ond game of the series at Cin-
cinnati Saturday night. The third
game is scheduled for Boston Sun-
day afternoon.
