DETROIT - Villonova's super
miler Marty Liquori coasted to his
second victory of this season's
NCAA track and field champion-
ships last night at Cobo Arena, cop-
ping the mile title, and, at least as
far as the 9,681 screaming fans
were concerned, essentially sewed
up the team title for his squad.
Running a typical Liquori race,
the ace ran back in the pack, grad-
ually making his way to the front,
grabbing the lead with about a
quarter mile to go to beat Wash-
ington's Jim Johnson with a rather
mediocre time of 4:04.7.
But the jubilant Jim Elliot, the
Villanova mentor, declaimed the
merits, of his mile relay team of
WilsonSmith, Lamotte Hynian,
John Harnett, and Chris Mason,
who captured third in that event,
the final one of the night, as the
real reason for the win.
'I didn't do it, they did it. That
mile relay really did it for us; they
were really something else," ex-
claimed the victorious Elliot.
Meanwhile, despite a rather poor
showing for the Wolverines on the
whole, one Michigan tsam man-
aged to play the unlikely role
of giant-killers. The Wolverine's
fine two mile relay team of Al
Cornwell, Eric Chapman, Bill Bol-
ster and Rick Storrey finished third
in the competition, but were dis-
qualified for eliminating Wiscon-
sin's excellent team from the race.
Chapman, running one of his best
races of the season, was pushed
from behind rounding a curve,
banging into Drake's runner who
in turn plunged headlong into Wis-
consin's Chuck Baker, knocking
him onto the infield.
However, a couple of other Wol-
verine stars managed to place
with fine performance. Gene
Brown, Michigan's sprinting star
who has really come into his own
of late, copped the fifth spot in
the 60 yard dash to give Michigan
its first point.
In that same race, pulling off
one of the greatest upsets of the
indoor season, Kentucky star Jim
Green edged out defending champ
Herb Washington of MSU in a photo
finish, as both were clocked at 6.0.
The only other Wolverine placer,
John Mann, was an especially
pleasant surprise for the partisan
fans as he copped the fourth spot,
The Michigan lacrosse club
dropped its first regular season
game yesterday to Oberlin, 11-
7. According to coach bio-chem-
ist Bob Kaman, "We had cor-
rected the team deficiencies,
but we got beat individually."
The Wolverine goalie, sopho-
mpre Jay Johnson, played an
excellent game in Kaman's es-
timation, making 22 saves. The
Michigan coach blamed the poor
defensive performance on a lack
of support by the defensemen.
in the high jump clearing 6-10 on
his second attempt, after finishing
a disappointing fifth in last week-

Also in the high jump, Wiscon-
sin's Pat Matzdorf, the Big Ten
champ, set a new NCAA record of
7-2, clearing that height for the
fourth time this season.

KANSAS CITY - The classy
Kentucky State Thoroughbreds suc-
cessfully defended their NAIA
crown last night by racing to a
102-82 win over Eastern Michigan.
The Hurons got good efforts from
stars Kennedy McIntosh and Lin-
dell Reason but couldn't overcome
the superior shooting and poise of
Travis Grant, a 6-8 junior dub-
bed "The Machine" by Thorough-
bred fans, gunned in 43 points de-
spite theefforts of harried Huron
defenders. With 7-0 Elmore Smith
drawing defenders into the mid-
dle, Grant was free to roam the
perimeter at will for his deadly
20-30 foot jumpers.
Kentucky State destroyed East-
ern early and galloped to an im-
posing 57-40 halftime advantage.
Eastern's Jessie Evans came offI
the bench to spark the Hurons but
his efforts proved meaningless in
the face of the K-State barrage.
Shooting 55.4 per cent from the
floor, the Thoroughbreds opened
up leads of 25 points during the
second half and were never headed.
Eastern was no match for Ken-
tucky State either from the floor or
the foul stripe, as they shot only
43.5 per cent from the floor and
44 per cent from the line, compared
with K-State's 55.4 per cent and
67 per cent.
Lindell Reason of Detroit led the
Hurons with 23 points and South
Haven's Kennedy McIntosh added
21. Evans played his finest game of
the season in scoring 15 points.
In post-game action Grant was
named the NAIA tournament's
most valuable player. McIntosh
and Reason grabbed first and sec-
ond team berths respectively.
Eastern finishes the season with
a mark of 22-11.
