NIT]j
By MARC FELDMAN
Boasting its strongest field in
years.the 35th annual National
Invitation Tournament o p e n s
tonight at New York's Madison
Square Garden.
Lefty Dreisel's Maryland team,
led by 6-11 center Tom McMil-
len, has been installed as the
favorite in the 16 team field on
the strength of a 23-5 record and
a solid second place finish to
North Carolina in the Atlantic
Coast Conference.
Maryland plays St. Joseph's
of Philadelphia (19-8) in the first
round tomorrow and C o a c h
Dreisel would like nothing bet-
ter than to win the NIT and
take a big step towards his long
range quest to make Maryland
the "UCLA of the East."
One of the most underrated
teams in the country, Memphis
State, is also given a chance
to challenge Maryland for the
crown. The Tigers tied t h i r d
ranked Louisville for the Mis-
souri Valley Conference crown
and lost out to the Cardinals in
a playoff for the NCAA bid last
weekend.
Memphis, making its fifh NIT
appearance, is 21-6 overall and is
paced by 6-2 Larry Finch with
a 24 point average. The Tigers
wil be tested early as Oral Ro-
berts, the highest scoring team

just one game in twenty-six,
plays Memphis State tomorrow
night in opening round action.
In recent years, the promot-
ers of the NIT have been crit-
icized for the lackluster quality
of the tournament. Nameless
teams with less than impressive
records have diluted the quality
of the tournament and resulted
in more empty seats than t h e
Garden proprietors would like to
see.
The NIT sometimes appears
like a runner-up bowl for the
various second place finishers
in the major conferences b u t

and Missouri, which had a much
better overall record than Big
Eight champ Kansas State, this
NIT hopes to erase that image.
In 1971, the Big Ten decided
to let its runners-up participate
in the NIT for the first time and
Michigan and Purdue entered.
This year, Ohio State and In-
diana were invited but only the
Hoosiers accepted. Recently, the
Ivy League repealed its ancient
ban on NIT participation and
Princeton, led by All-American
guard Brian Taylor, became the
first Ivy League team to enter
the Garden affair. The o n 1 y
major conference which s till
bans NIT play is the Pacific
Eight.
As usual, the tournament
seems to be dominated by New
York area teams as seven of

the 16 entries are from the New
York-New Jersey-Pennsylvania
area.
Niagara (18-8) and Syracuse
t20-6) are upstate New York
entries and Fordham (18-8) and
St. John's, with a relatively poor
17-9 record, represent the City.
Lafayete Colelge of Pennsyl-
vania boasts a fine 20-5 record
and high scoring Tracy Tripucka
of Bloomfield, N.J., who should
draw some fans to the Garden.
The other local entries are
Princeton and St. Joseph's.
Most of the field is given a
chance to take al lthe marbles in
the tournament as the f i r s t
round matchups are rated toss-
ups. There are stil lthe f e w
unknown teams in the competi-
tion such as Davidson and
Texas-El Paso, but the v a s t
majority of the teams h a v e
something to offer the sophisti-
cated basketball fans that habi-
tate Madison Square Garden
each winter.
Some of the other stars that
will lead their teams in the NIT
are Barry Parkhill of Virginia,
Ernie Fleming of the Jackson-
ville Dolphins, Joby Wright of
Indiana, Greg Kohls of Syracuse,
and Missouri's John Brown.
Unlike the last two years when
Marquette and North C a r o-
line waltzed to titles, this 35th
version of the NIT could be
full of surprises and excitement
