n he holds the regulation
scoring record of 52 points.
Set Up Last Score
schinger's last basket was
ully set up and gave the
rmaker's a third-place finish.
th less than two minutes re-'

maining and the score tied, 75-75,
Dischinger grabbed the rebound
after a missed shot by Michigan's
John Oosterbaan. The Boiler-
makers froze the ball until they
called time out with 30 seconds
left to set up the winning play.
Purdue's Mel Garland flipped
the ball in bounds to Dischinger
and the big center dribbled up to
the foul circle and passed off. He
then circled around behind a two-
man screen to the right of the
basket; took the return pass and
dropped the winner home.
Misses Long One
Michigan's Tom Cole tried a
desperation shot from half-court
but it fell short.
It was a crushing blow to the
Wolverines, who had fought back
from a 14-point deficit to hold a
74-67 lead with only 3:23 remain-
ing. It was then that the roof
caved in. Captain Jon Hall, who
had played a great floor game and
scored eleven points, made two
fatal mistakes that relegated
Michigan to eighth place in the
Hall scored the last Michigan

point on a free throw with 2:49
left to make the score 75-70. Phil
Dawkins brought Purdue within
three points with a jump shot
nine seconds later.
Steps to Line
Hall was then fouled by Daw-
kins while bringing the ball up-
court and stepped to the foul
line with a one-and-one oppor-
tunity. Hall had made seven of
eight previously but missed this
one and Purdue got the rebound.
With 2:11 left Hall committed
a foul to allow Garland to tie the
score with a three-point play.
Oosterbaan then missed his shot
to set up the heroics; by Dischin-
With Dischinger leading the way
Purdue almost ran Michigan off
the court in the first eleven min-
utes of the first half. Dischinger
scored 14 of his 21 first half points

But the Wolverines, scoring in
bursts, finally got going and work-

ed the score to a 47-47 tie at the
end of the half.
The last burst came with two
minutes left and Purdue leading
47-38. John Harris and Doug Her-
ner each hit a jump shot, Ooster-
baan scored on a long set, Cole
added a free throw, and Herner
another jumper to tie the game.
Herner's last score came with 22
seconds left to end the nine point
Michigan was led in scoring by
Cole with 20 points. Sophomore

able replacement for Bob Can-

Calm, quiet Terry Dischinger
stood in a corner of the Purdue
locker room slowly getting dressed;
he politely accepted the congratu-
lations of the well wishers crowd-
ing around him.
This seemed kind of unusual for
a player who had rewritten four
Big Ten records, closed out his
college career by sinking the win-
ning basket, and was almost as-
sured of holding the individual
scoring crowd for the third con-
secutive year.
But then Terry Dischinger is
more than an unusual basketball.
player. He is an unusual person.
Barrage of Questions
He tried to answer all the ques-
tions being fired at him. Yes, he's
glad his last college game was a
victory. No, he doesn't know if he's
going to play pro bdll. No, he
didn't know that Jimmy Rayl of
Indiana had only scored eight
points in the first half against
Ohio State.
. Both Dischinger and Rayl had
gone into their final games of the
Big Ten season tied in the scoring
race. Since the Indiana-Ohio State
game had started a half-hour
later than the Michigan-Purdue
game, the new scoring champ
would not be decided for a little
Rayl needed 21 points in the
second half to surpass Dischinger,
who tallied 30 points to lead all
scorers, but Ohio State had a
pair of tough guards and the best
defensive team in the conference.
Proud Poppa
Mr. Dischinger joined the circle
of those crowding around his son
and offering his hand gave Terry
a warm smile. There was no doubt
that he was as proud as a father
could be.
The Dischinger family was
proud, but as Mr. Dischinger said,
"we're humble, too." Terry is like
his folks. He is a student and then
a basketball player. This is what
makes him so unusual.
Someone (me) tritely asked him
how it felt for him to be pressed
for the conference scoring title for
the first time in three years. He
quickly replied, "That's not what
the game should be played for."
Uncle Sam First
He firmly believes this. Majoring
in chemical engineering, he has a
high academic average and plans
to continue his education. He said,
"I want to get my Master's, but
after two years in'the service, who
Terry's father talks with a trace
of southern accent coming from
Terre Haute in southern Indiana.

He has given his son many of his
ideals. He commented that family
has never disclosed how many
college offers Terry received when
he graduated from high school.
Why did Terry go to school at
Purdue, he was asked. Mr. Disch-
inger replied easily, "He wanted to
be an engineer, and he lives in In-
diana, so why shouldn't he go to
school there?"
Why Not?
That's a question that not too
many high school stars think of
when they're looking for the best
deal they can get from a college.
Tom McGinley, one of the start-
ing guards, came out of the shower
and walked past the group circling
his famous teammate. McGinley
was asked what the attitude of the
team was before the game, when

IOWA CITY-Iowa closed out
its regular basketball season last
night with an 81-64 Big Ten vic-
tory over second-place Wisconsin.
The Hawks closed their confer-
ence play the same way they open-
ed it-by drubbing the Badgers,
who lost 91-79 at Madison nine
weeks ago.
Last night's game provided a

spectacular finish for Iowa scor-
irig ace Don Nelson, who paced
his teammates with 35 points and
set an Iowa record for the most
points by an individual player in
a single season-571.
Iowa Pulls Away
Wisconsin and Iowa tied at 7-7
minutes after the game started,
but Iowa drew away and held the
lead the rest of the way.
The Hawks held an 18-point
lead at halftime, 46-28, but Wis-
consin came {back strong in the
second half and in less than three
minutes had cut the Iowa edge to
11 points.
Ken Siebel and Don Heardon
were high scorers for the Badg-
ers, with 12 points apiece.
EVANSTON-Trailing most of
the way, Illinois rallied in the last
half and defeated Northwestern,
73-68, in a Big Ten basketball
finale last night.
Northwestern led 36-29 at the
half but Illinois finally took its
first lead at 58-57 on a basket
by Bill Small with seven minutes
The lead went back and forth
until Bob Starnes scored for Illi-
nois with 3:19 remaining to give
the Illini a 67-65 advantage which
they maintained the rest of the
Bill Burwell of Illinois' led all
scorers with 21 points although he
fouled out with about five minutes

topped Northwestern with 17.

... hits for 30
Dischinger and Rayl were tied.
"Everyone felt like helping him
win it. If the game was not as
close, we would have fed him more.
But the important thing was, to
win, and Terry felt that way too,"
he said.
Yes ,Yes, Yes
Dischinger was-asked a few more
routine questions. Yes, Ohio State
was the best team he has played
against. Yep, he enjoyed playing
in the Olympics.
One of the assistant coaches
came up to Dischinger and told
him Indiana had lost and Rayl
had scored 25 points. Dischinger
was scoring champion again-an-
other round of congratulations.
Finally everyone filed out of the
dressing room. Terry Dischinger
finished dressing.
