When individual stars come

with them. "Austin Carr. Jim

any chance of meeting them.
Then the next time they come,
I'll know them and be able to
talk some more."
In addition to his enthusiasm
for sport, he possesses a number
of concrete ideas about what
makes for an exciting team. "in
today's specialized athletics, you
get the Billy Taylors, the Glenn
Doughtys, and the Henry Wil-
mores who bring a new life to the
game. They aren't just robots,
merely doing a job. When Wil-
more goes out onto that court, he
is a competitor. When it gets
down to where you are just do-
ing a job, you take the excite-
ment out of the game."
Jenkins attributes much of
Michigan's athletic success to an
awareness by the coa2hes "that
they have to play the hest play-
ers. You can't win without black
players, and Michigan -realizes
this now.
He also predicts a bright f«-
ture for Wolverine basketball.

WAIT 'TIL NEXT YEAR

Kings
By RANDY PHILLIPS
The National Collegiate Basket-
ball Tournament, or the UCLA
Tournament as some would call it,
began two weeks ago in its year-
ly quest to find a national cham-
pion. This year was no differentI
than any of the last several as the
powerful UCLA Bruins were fav-
ored to take an unprecedented{
fifth straight title.
The NCAA crown is considered
the most prestigious award in col-
lege basketball by virture of the

vie

in

first class competition in the tour-
nament.
There are four Regions into!
which the college basketball world
is divided-the Eastern, Mideast.
Midwest, and Farwest Regions.
The conference champions in each'
region are automatically offered
a berth in the regional tourna-
ments. The NCAA Tournament
Committee than has the power to
add top 'anked independents in
each region to bring the total num-
ber of teams in each regional tour-
nament to eight.
Sixteen of the top twenty ranked
teams were named to this year's
competition including s e v e r al
squads with skyscraper centers
and forwards.
Seven foot Jim McDaniels of
Western Kentucky and 7-2 Artis
Gilmore, both first team All-
Americans, highlighted the opening
round game in the mnid-east re-
gional. The Hilltoppers pulled out
a come from behind two point win
over the taller Dolphins and then!
struggled past a scrappy Ohio
State Squad for an 81-78 overtime
win. Sandwiched in between was a
103-83 romp over rival Kentucky.
Western Kentucky, advancing to
the NCAA semi-finals, piled up a
21-4 regular season mark and a'
seventh ranking in the final Asso-
ciated Press Poll. The Hilltoppers
represent the Ohio Valley Confer-
ence. "Big Mac" McDaniels is an,
excellent outside shooter a - well as:
a tough rebounder.
But Clarence Glover, 0-3 senior
forward stole the show in both the
OSU and Jacksonville victories.
Glover put in the final basket that
sewed up the 74-72 win over the

~CAA's
Dolphins and picked off three cru-
cial rebounds and scored four
points late in the overtime period
to kill OSU's hope for a second
straight upset. Western Coach
Johnny Oldham declared. "He's the
quickest big man I think I've seen
in my life."
In the western regional UCLA
was favored to advance to the
semifinals at Houston and did. But
the Bruins did not have an easy
time in capturing the Pacific Coast
Conference title this season. The
top ranked Bruins, packed with
power on the front line had to con-
tend with a stubborn Southern
California team which boasted
great depth at the guard positions.
Southern California hosted the
Bruins in a mid-season showdown
to determine the conference title.
UCLA had lost to a fired up Notre
Dame squad just a week earlier
for the first loss of the season, and
the Trojans knew the Bruins were
beatable. Yet, UCLA came back
late in the second half to snuff out
the Trojans' upset bid 64-00. Sid-
ney Wicks, 6-8 forward and All-
American muscled his way to easy
ilayups to turn the tide in favor of
the Bruins.
After the first USC meeting the
Bruins struggled with close last
second victories over Oregon and
Oregon State to remain unbea ten
in the conference. But a rematch
with once beaten USC loomed at
the end of the regular season
schedule and the Trojans looked
for a win to force a conference tie.
Curtis Rowe, another strong Bruin
forward, dominated the boards in
the rematch and neutralized the
