NOTRE DAME'S independent and
fifth-ranked Irish take their 23-5 record
against 22-7 Toledo, co-champion of the
Mid-American Conference, in tonight's
opener at sold-out Market Square
Arena. No. 4 MSU collides with ninth-
ranked LSU in the second game.
The two winners battle for the
regional title Sunday and the survivor
advances to next week's semifinals at
Salt Lake City.,
The Rockets stunned 11th-ranked
Iowa, 74-72, on Stan Joplin's 20-foot
jumper with one second to play, but.

Coach Bob Nichols said flatly, "We're
now in the country's top 16, where it
counts. And that's on the court."
"It doesn't matter how good you are
but how well you play," said MSU's Jud
Heathcote. "Upsets happen every year.
Thus far, by my count, eight ranked
teams have been knocked out by
unranked teams."
champions, easy winners over Lamar
last weekend, 6-foot-8 center Jay Vin-
cent was questionable with a foot
bruise. He sat out the second half
against Lamar and was on crutches
earlier this week.
"Jay is not responding to treatment
as quickly as we had hoped," said
Heathcote. "It looks like he could miss
Friday's game."
If Vincent cannot play, 6-7 junior Ron
Charles was expected to get the nod.

THE NIGHT'S top lineup change in-
volves LSU, the Southeastern Con-
ference champions. Coach Dale Brown
announced his backup center, 7-foot,
250-pound Rick Mattick, would make
his first start against MSU.
"He's the key to us," said Brown.
"He decided he was going to be an
aggressive, hard-nosed player. I had
very little to do with his improvement.
I've just pushed him as hard as I could
to his limit."
Officials of Market Square Arena,
site of next year's finals, said all 16,823
seats were sold out days ago.
