NIT in 1956, beating Dayton in the
finals. This year the two squads
didn't even face each other, since
the Flyers were also eliminated in
the opening round.
The 68-60 defeat by Duke shut
the door on, an 18-9 Dayton season:

finest players, won the Yankee con-

Syracuse wasn't disgraced. In
fact, its pressing defense almost'
knocked off the Wolverines. Led
by big Bill Smith and Greg Kohls,

Trojans' center Ron Roley. Tough
defense by Guards Henry Bibby
and Kenny Booker shut-off the out-
side threats of guards Dennis Lay-
ton and Paul Westphal, as the
Bruins secured an NCAA berth by
winning 73-62.
UCLA advanced to the NCAA
semifinals on the strengih of a
close 57-55 decision over Long
Beach State. Coach John Wooden
remarked, "our defense sustained
us." In fact UCLA is one of the
better defensive squads in the na-
tion.
Villanova stunned th rd ranked
and previously unbeaten Penn 90-
47 to advance to win the eastern
regionals. The Wildcats threw a
tough zone against Penn and the
Quakers could not penei Vate inside.
Villanova is generally a slow
starting team as they lost to St.
Louis and then were trounced by
Michigan 103-87 in the consolation
game of the Rainbow Classic. But
the 'Cats came on strong in the
second half of the season as they
stomped Notre Dame 99-81 and
stopped rugged Providence 76-75.
Villanova boasts a strong front-
line man Howard Porter a. 6-7 and
a tenacious defense.
Fordham Coach Dick Phelps ex-
pressed concern about playing Vil-
lanova late in the season, and his
worries were soon confirmed as the
Wildcats knocked off the Rams 85-
75 and then decimated Penn to gain
the opportunity to play Western
Kentucky in the semi-finals.
Fourth ranked Kansas has sure-
ly received the least publicity of
the top ranked teams, yet they
managed to close out the regular
season with a 25-1 record. The Jay-
hawks have 6-10 Dave Robisch,
(second team) All-American to
their credit. Kansas earned the
right to meet favored UCLA on the
basis of two close wins over Hcus-
ton and Missouri Valley Confer-
ence Champion, Drake.
The Jayhawks have a history of
close games this season, but have
managed to win all but one. Kan-
sas nipped Oklahoma 71-68 in the
last minute on free throws while
the Jayhawks blistered cross state
rival Kansas State 61-43.
