LOS ANGELES-UCLA'S speedy
Bruins put a quick end to any
Michigan basketball hopes of be-
ing "first by the first" with a
resounding 98-80 defeat of the
Wolverines in the second round
of the Los Angeles Classic Dec.
After handing a good NYU team
a 83-74 setback in the opening
round, Coach Dave Strack's cagers
ran into a fired-up UCLA squad
that outshot, outhustled and out-
played the undefeated maize and
blue. Michigan regained some face
by downing Pittsburgh, 95-80, for
the third-place consolation cham-
pionship. UCLA nipped Illinois,
83-79, for the classic crown.
Against the Bruins, Michigan
didn't play the caliber of ball that
local fans have become accustomed
to this season. Sloppy floor play
and erratic passing in the first
ten minutes gave the West Coast
five the chance to build up a size-
able lead. The shooting of guard
Gail Goodrich and forward Jack
Hirsch kept Michigan in the hole
throughout the first half.
Not all went bad for the Blue
in the first 20 minutes. After re-
covering from the initial shock of
UCLA's zone press, forwards Larry
Tregoning and Oliver Darden be-
gan chipping away at the Bruins'
lead with 20-footers. This com-
bination pulled Michigan within
three points at the half.
Cagers Land Third Place in 'Classic'
The second half is twenty min-
utes of basketball that Strack and
the Michigan cagers would just as
soon forget. It seemed that the
ball wouldn't go through the hoop
for Michigan. Numerous times the
Blue got the second and third shot
but for some reason it just wasn't
Michigan's night. Darden was high
for Michigan with 25 points while
Goodrich led all scorers with 30.
In the opening night victory
over the Violets, Michigan turned
on the steam in the second half
to stop All-American Barry Kra-
mer and his teammates. Thanks
to a stellar defensive job by Tre-
goning on Kramer and the board
work of Bill Buntin, Darden and
Cazzie Russell, the Blue wore down
the then tenth-ranked Violets.
Particular mention should be
made of Tregoning's great defen-
sive job on Kramer. The 6'5"
Ferndale junior held the NYU ace
to five buckets on 21 tries from
the field and scored 14 points
NYU stayed in the game on the
inside work of Harold (Happy)
Hairston, who hit 14 of 16 floor
shots and finished with 35 points
and 11 rebounds.
The Pittsburgh game was some-
what of a letdown, and the Michi-
gan cagers showed it in their play.
Hot shooting and superior board
strength were the deciding factors
in the 95-80 victory over the Pitt
Michigan opened slowly against
the Panthers and looked like they!
might be in for trouble, but PittI
couldn't match the one-two punch
of Russell and Buntin and fell 14
points behind at the halfway point
of the first half before narrowing
Michigan's lead to six at the half,
Quick baskets by Tregoning,
Buntin and Cantrell put Michigai,
off to a quick start in the second
half. Pitt's Brian Generalovich
kept the Panthers close for the
first five minutes but Michigan's
better firepower proved just too
much. The Blue ended the game
with a 54 per cent shooting aver-
No Michigan player made the
all-tournament team. UCLA land-
ed guards Gail Goodrich and Walt
Hazzard on the squad while run-
nerup Illinois placed center Skip
Thoren. The forwards spots went
to Pitt's Generalovich and NYU's
