The two New York outfits came
out to mile-high Denver for their

The shortest man on the ice, 5'-

Pratt and Arlin Parker.

Favored Ohio State Open Title Defense

Special to The Daily
- LOUISVILLE-Ohio State's na-
tional champion basketball team,
heavily favored to repeat as NCAA
titlists, will take on host team,
Louisville tonight as the 23rd an-
nual NCAA championship tourna-
ment moves into its second round
of play.
The other two teams vying for
the tMid-East regional title and a
trip to Kansas City for 'the na-
tional championships on March
24-25 are Kentucky (18-8), repre-
senting the Southeastern Confer-
ence and making a record 12th
appearance in the tourney, and
little Morehead State (19-10), also
from this basketball-happy state
and considered the darlings of the
Capacity Crowds
Capacity crowds are expected
for both nights of action at Free-
dom Hall here.
The Buckeyes (24-0) will be
carrying a 29-game winning streak
with them into tonight's action.
Their, last defeat came at the
hands of Indiana in the next to
last conference game last year.
Louisville (20-7) advanced to
the regional semi-finals by virtue
of their 76-70 first round victory
over Ohio U. earlier this week.

Despite their apparent height
advantage, the Cardinals aren't
expected to be much of a problem
in Ohio State's quest for asecond
successive national title. Display-
ing a powerful offensive unit,
strong rebounding, and scrappy
defense, a combination rarely
found in a college team, the Bupk-
eyes have been ranked first, in
both wire service polls every week
since the season began, and were
unanimous choices the last six
weeks, a feat never before accom-
Lucas Leads
Leading the Buckeye machine,
of course, will be All-American
and Olympian star Lucas. The 6'8"
junior has been named on virtu-
ally every All-American team re-
leased, in addition to being given
the "player of the year" label in
most corners.
Atlhough he is known to have a
tendency to pass off to teammates
rather than shoot, Lucas shot
enough this year to give him run-
ner-up honors in the Big Ten
scoring race. Flashing a 24.9 aver-
age for 14 games, he finished sec-
ond in the conference to Terry
Dischinger of Purdue.

Lucas is more than capably

Siegfried, and Mel Nowell, all three
of whom finished in the top 12
among Big Ten point-makers this
Siegfried is an All-American in
his own right, being held off many
teams only because of Lucas' over-
shadowing him, while Havlicek is
considered one of the country's
top defensive stars in addition to
being a better than average point
producer (15.2 in Big Ten play).
More Regionals
While the Mid-Eastern regionals
are being held here, three other
regional championships will be

going on in widely-spread sections
of the country.
St. Bonaventure (23-3) is fav-
ored in the Eastern Regionals at

been waiting for a rematch with
