S YCAMORES, DEPA UL REACH NCAA SEMIS

Indiana St. nips Hogs; Bruins

ousted

By The Associated Press
'CNCINNATI - Indiana State's
"miracle worker" pulled out another
game for the unbeaten Sycamores, who
won their 32nd game of the season
Saturday.
No, it wasn't Larry Bird - but Bird's
supersub roommate, Bob Heaton.
"When he gets the ball underneath,
he can score," said Bird about Heaton
after watching his teammate pull out a
dramatic 73-71 victory over Arkansas
with a last-second shot in the NCAA's
Midwest Regional basketball cham-
pionship game.
Until the game-winning shot by
Heaton, superstar Larry Bird had
carried the nation's No. 1 team prac-
tically on his broad shoulders.
Bird scored 31 points and ignited a
second-half surge that kept the
Sycamores abreast of the fifth-ranked
Raiorbacks, 25-5, from the Southwest
Copierence.
There were 12 ties in the game, in-

cluding nine in the second half, the last
at 71 on two foul shots with 1:31 left by
Bird.
The Sycamores never led in the game
until 12:05 remained when Brad Miley
threw in a layup, giving Indiana State a
55-53 advantage.
The Sycamores built their advantage
to 63-57 with 7:25 left as Carl Nicks
scored four straight points for the
Missouri Valley Conference cham-
pions.
The Razorbacks came back to make
a game of it by out-scoring Indiana
State 8-2, pulling into a 65-65 tie with
4:45 remaining.
There were still three more ties to go
before the winning shot by Heaton, who,
incidentally, early in the season hit
another game-saving shot against New
Mexico State.
In addition to his 31 points, Bird had
10 rebounds and three assists. Nicks
added 13 points for Indiana State, in-
cluding 10 in the second half when the

Sycamores came from a 39-37 halftime
deficit. Alex Gilbert had 12 points for
the winners.
Sidney Moncrief, who helped Arkan-
sas race to a seven-point lead early in
the second half, led the Razorbacks
with 24 points.
Meanwhile, in Provo, Utah, Curtis
Watkins and Gary Garland led five
DePaul starters in double figures to a
shocking 95-91 upset over mistake-
prone, second-rated UCLA Saturday in
the championship of the NCAA West
Regional.
The Blue Demons, who were heavy
underdogs to the Pac-10 champion
Bruins, will meet No. 1 Indiana State
next Saturday in the NCAA semifinals
at Salt Lake City.
UCLA, which played a nearly perfect
second half in coming from behind to
rout San Francisco in the regional
semifinals Thursday night, played
perhaps its poorest 20 minutes in the
first half against DePaul. The Bruins
Devilish Demons
DEPAUL

trailed 51-34 at intermission.
The Bruins, who had rallied from
several large deficits throughout the
year, fought back through the second
half and finally got to within 91-87 on
David Greenwood's tip-in with 1:45 to
go.
With 58-seconds remaining, Clyde
Bradshaw, fouled by Roy Hamilton,
canned two free throws, restoring
DePaul's six-point lead, 93-87.
Then Greenwood, who led all scorers
with a career-high 37 points, made it 93-

89 and Brad Holland's two free throws
drew the Bruins within two at 93-91.
Then Garland iced the victory with a
driving' layup, putting DePaul and its
venerable coach, Ray Meyer, into the
final four for the first time.
UCLA, which crushed DePaul 108-85
- in its season opener at Los Angeles,
reached the zenith of its first-half inep-
titude with a minute left. Holland, a
deadly long-range shooter, stepped out
of bounds while trying a long jumper
and Watkins converted the turnover for

a 48-32 DePaul lead. Seconds later,
Aguirre floated in for a stuff and a 19-
point DePaul advantage.
UCLA, failing to get out of the West
Regional for the third straight year af-
ter dominating college basketball for
more than a decade, committed 14 tur-
novers in a fatal first-half performance.
The quick, slick ballhandlers of Meyer
only had seven turnovers.
Watkins and Garland each scored 24
points, leading the Blue Demons. In
addition, freshman Mark Aguirre had
20, Jim Mitchem 14 and Bradshaw 13.

32-0, and going strong

CAGE BRASS EYES CENTER:
Michigan battles for blue

By GEOFF LARCOM
In the spring, Johnny Orr and
assistants Jim Boyce and Bill Frieder
are like the man in the Camel Filters
ad. They know what they want and they
go out and try to get it.
And what they're after are players.
High school standouts. Since the
season-ending Notre Dame win, Orr
and Frieder have joined Boyce in
racking up recruiting mileage around
the midwest.
THE INCONSITENCY displayed by

the Wolverines throughout the season
made obvious to Orr and Frieder the
team's need for two things.
First, they've obviously got to go out
and get a big man who can play the
pivot. The Wolverines of the Johnny Orr
era have continually operated with a 6-8
or 6-9 forward forced to play center.
And when you've got a player the
caliber of Phil Hubbard in his freshman
year, it's not so much of a problem. This
past year, with Hub still on the
comeback trail, that wasn't the case.
Second, Orr and Frieder feel

theymust recruit what coaches. call a
blue chipper, the player who can turn
your program around in his first year.
Hubbard was that type of player. So is
Earvin Johnson.
AND THE PROSPECT Michigan is
looking to in that regard is Clark
Kellogg, a 6-8 guard-forward from St.
Joseph High School in Cleveland.
In leading his team to a 21-2 record
and a berth in the AAA state playoffs,
Kellogg was voted the player of the
year in Ohio. According to Frieder the
Wolverines now have a 50-50 chance of

chippers
landing Kellogg, who has narrowed his
choice of schools down to Ohio State and
Michigan.
"Clark is very Big Ten oriented,"'
said Frieder. "He's already ruled out
Kentucky and Notre D ame, but Ohio
State has the advantage of being the in-
state school. They've put a lot of heat on
him."
Frieder continued, "He's a great
jumper and a super passer, along with
being a strong rebounder and an ex-
cellent outside shooter."
KELLOGG, WHO says he will decide
by the end of the month which school
he'll attend, would fit right into the
Michigan lineup. In contrast, Ohio State
returns all five starters from the team
that finished 12-6 in the Big Ten this
year. Frieder says that Kellogg is
aware that there exists a definite need
for him at Michigan, that he could step
in and play right away.
In pursuit of that elusive center
Michigan is strongly pursuing two
players, Joe Bresnahan from Fenwick
High School in Oak Park, Illinois, and
Granville Waiters from Columbus,
Ohio.
Bresnahan, whose brother Neil starts
at forward for the Fighting Illini, is
considering a number of schools in ad-
dition to Michigan, all of which have
top-notch medical schools. The 6-11 cen-
ter is a 4.0 student with ambitions of
becoming a doctor when his playing
days are over.
FRIEDER DESCRIBES the seven
foot Waiters as a great shooter and a
strong inside player. Waiters is con-
sidering three Big Ten schools, MSU,
Purdue and Ohio State, along with
Michigan. He's going to give Maryland
and Nevada-Las Vegas a close look.
Meanwhile Bresnahan will give Stan-
ford, Creighton and Illinois a close look
in addition to Michigan. The two are
both currently involved in state playof-
fs and will make their six visits to
schools allotted by the NCAA later this
spring.
Frieder indicated that the Wolverines
are going after about 13 prospects in all,
while planning on signing three or four.
BUT IT APPEARS the ingredient in
the year's recruiting formula is
Kellogg. Frieder feels he's the one who
can turn the Michigan program around
with his two-way ability.
"Kellogg is a bonafide, pro prospect,
