By The Associated Press
HOUSTON - UCLA's hard-
pressed Bruins finally subdued
Villanova's scrappy "Iron Men"
2 yesterday with a deep-
freeze and the career-high point
production of senior Steve Patter-
son to extend their NCAA basket-
ball championship dynasty to an
unprecedented f i v e consecutive'
titles.
The Bruins, who have now won
seven out of the last eight NCAA
championships and 28 consecutive
playoff games, had to go into a
stall to get the Wildcats out of
their tight zone defense.
Only Patterson, a 6-foot-9 cen-
ter, and guard Henry Bibby were
effective shooting from the out-
side against Villanova, the Eastern
champions.
Patterson scored 29 points, 20
in the first half, and Bibby got
17. High-scoring Sidney Wicks
was held to seven points under
the close guarding of Villanova's
06-foot-8 Howard Porter.

game almost backfired "but that's
the chance you take when you try
that."
But the strategy worked as the
awesome Bruins zoomed to their
seventh NCAA championship in
eight years, including five straight.
"I didn't think they could beat
us man-to-man," Wooden said.
"We w e n t to the slowdown to;
bring them out of their zone de-
fense and it worked. Yes, it did
hurt our momentum but that's a
gamble you have to take.
Porter scored 15 for the Wild-
cats and Hank Siemintkowski add-
ed 19.
UCLA went into a stall four
minutes from the end of the first
half and left the floor with a 45-
37 lead.
Villanova went five minutes
without scoring as UCLA built up
a 12-point lead. Coach Jack
Kraft then called timeout and put
the Wildcats in a man-to-man
defense but the damage was done.
A fast-closing surge spearhead-
ed by Porter brought Villanova
within four points with 1:10 left
but a goal-tending call on Patter-
son layup gave UCLA a safe 66-60
lead with 38 seconds to go.
UCLA, under Coach John Wood-
en, was booed heavily for its tac-
tics.
Porter taunted Wicks, saying
"You all sick? Play ball. You're
No. 1. Hah?"

HOUSTON - Jerry Dunn's pair
of free throws with 12 seconds
left gave Western Kentucky a
77-75 victory o v e r Kansas yes-
terday in a rugged NCAA basket-
ball championship consolation
game.
Dunn was the goat of Thursday
night's 92-89 double overtime loss
to Villanova when he missed a
free throw with four seconds to
play. That would have g i v e n
Western Kentucky the victory in
regulation play.
Jim McDaniels, Western Ken-
tucky's 7-foot center ,poured in 36
points to keep the Hilltoppers in
the contest which had numerous
turnovers.
McDaniels canned a 20-foot
baseline jump shot with 36 sec-
onds left to play to break a 73-
all tie and then raced downcourt
to block a Jayhawk shot to set
up Dunn's clinching free throws.
Dave Robisch, Kansas' 6-foot-
10 center, scored on a short jump-
er with one second left. Kansas
guard Aubrey Nash stole the in-
bounds pass but his desperation
shot found only the backboard.
Robisch was high man for the
Jayhawks with 23 points followed
by Roger Brown with 16 and Nash
with 11.
The third-place victory helped
Western Kentucky to a 24-6 final
season record.
McDaniels, who sat out part of
the first half when he got into
foul trouble, gathered in 19 re-
bounds. Roger Brown had 16 for
Kansas.

Chamberlain spearheaded a fast
break with seven straight points
that boosted the advantage to 59-
47.
Rich Yunkus made it interesting
by scoring five points that brought
the Yellow Jackets to within 61-57
with seven minutes left. But Cham-
berlain again broke loose, this
time ripping off seven of North
Carolina's next 10 points to give
the Tar Heels a safe 71-59 lead with
five minutes to go.
Despite scoring eight straight
points and holding the Yellow Jac-
kets without a field goal in the
first 21/2 minutes, North Carolina
was unable to take command at
the start of the nationally-tele-
vised game.
Big Tommie Wilson put in eight
points in a row and Bob Murphy
also hit eight in separate first half
stretches to keep Georgia Tech
neck-and neck with the ,Tar Heels,
five point favorites.
The high scoring Yunkus, play-
ing a sub par game with an injured
left wrist, managed only five noints
in the first half, but brought Geor-
gia Tech even at 25 with a jump'
shot. The Tar Heels pulled away
38-34 behind Chamberlain and
Dave Chadwick, who combined for
six points in an 8-0 spurt. Each
scored 11 points in the first half.
A field goal by Murphy and two
foul shots propelled Georgia Tech
into a tie again at 38-all before the
Tar Heels ran off a six point binge
and grabbed a 33-40 halftime lead.

North Carolina charged away at

ing seven points while its tough
defense held Georgia Tech without
a point for 3%V2 minutes. Jim Thorne
'scored four points and George
Small added a foul shot to bring
Georgia Tech back to 52-45 before
Chamberlain took over.
Chamberlain was voted the tcur-

North Carolina wiped out years of
frustration for Atlantic Coast con-
ference teams, who had never got-

The Michigan Ruggers yester-
day rolled to two easy victories
over the Detroit Cobras, in their
only games this spring.
Behind an aggressive offense
and a slovenly defense the Mich-
igan Gold fought to a 17-3 tri-
umph.
Urged on by a sideline banner
- "Go Smitty - your harem" -
Ron Smith scored a try in the
first minute of play. A few min-
utes later, Bob "Mad Dog" Red fell
on a loose ball inside the Detroit
goal for another try.
Michigan continually kept De-
troit boxed in, forcing numerous
kicks from the endzone. The Rug-
gers broke one such kick as Tom
Webster scored on heads-up pass
from Terry Larrimer. Chris Pen-
noyer converted after the try.
Just before the close of the half,
Pennoyer spurted ten yards for
another score, making the half-
time score 14-0.
