Pioneers
Favored
in Finals
By MIKE GILLMAN
The wrap-up of the collegiate
hockey season gets underway in
Boston tomorrow as the NCAA
finals begin.
Heavy favorite3 in the tourney
are the Pioneers df Denver, league
champions of the Western Col-
legiate Hockey Association. Denver
earned the right to the playoffs
by knocking off Colorado ClJege
last weekend for the sixth and
seventh times this season by 9-2
and 3-1 margins.
The other WCHA representa-
tive is Michigan Tech, second in
the league for regular season play.
The Huskies topped defending
NCAA champion North Dakota
twice in the WCHA playoffs, 4-2
and 5-4.
Eastern Entries
The eastern entries will be St.
Lawrence and Boston University.
The eastern teams are chosen on
a one-game playoff basis and St.
Lawrence topped Boston College,
4-3, while Boston U. was tripping
Dartmouth, 4-1.
Most observers of the college
scene pick the Denver team to
walk away with the honors with
little difficulty.
Bobbie Watt, this year's captain
of the Michigan puck squad, feels
that Denver and Michigan Tech
will both win their opening games
with ease and that Denver will
then stop Tech in the champion-
ship round..
"If anything but that happens,"
says Watt, "it will be a real up-
set."
St. Lawrence Strongest
Perhaps the strongest eastern
contender is St. Lawrence, the
only team in the east that met
any competition from the WCHA
during the year.
Michigan opened its season with
an easy 6-0 win over the Larries
at Canton, N.Y. and then dropped
a 6-5 nod to the host school two
nights later.
The best the Wolverines could
do in the WCHA was fifth, while
St. Lawrence went on to become
an eastern powerhouse. This fact
alone points up one reason why
the NCAA entries are pre-tourney
the WCHA entries are pre-tour-
ney favorites.
The tourney pairings are as
follows:
Thursday night: Michigan Tech
(20-9-1) vs. St. Lawrence (14-6-2).
Friday night: Denver (25-4-3)
vs. Boston U. (18-7).
1-1

Monday Night's scores

NEW YORK ) - Top-seeded
Bradley rattled Dayton with its
vaunted press defense last night
and streaked into the semi-finals
of the National Invitation Bas-
ketball Tournament with a 78-64
victory over the bigger, stronger
Flyers.
Bradley will meet St. Bonaven-
ture, a shocking 106-71 victor
over St. John's last night, in the
semi-finals Thursday night.
Bradley, the only club to beat
Cincinnati this season, trailed
Dayton 37-35 when Coach Chuck
Orsborn ordered the press. The
Braves, who pulled out many a
regular season game with this full
court defense that depends on
speed and agility, needed just five
minutes to grab the lead for good.
There was 17:10 left 'when the
press was applied and 12 minutes
remained when Soph Chet Walk-
er hit a Jump shot to poke Brad-
ley in front to stay, 46-44.
Dayton, which averages nearly
6'6" when it has its three big men
in the game, pulled within two
points at 52-50 but that was it.
The Braves from the Missouri
Valley Conference turned on their
team speed, and made it a rout.
Walker wound up with 22 points
--16 of them; in the second half.
Senior Dan Smith had 21 and was
the key man in keeping the
Braves in the game until their
press and speed broke it open.
Two other Braves hit double
figures,, Mack Herndon getting 14
and Al Saunders 12.
Garry Roggenburk, Dayton's
classy 6' 6" soph, had 21 points
and pulled down 15 rebounds in
a fine all around performance.
Little Sam stole the play from
Big Tom as the Stith brothers
fired St. Bonaventure to a 106-71
