4)-

Squeaks by Oscar on
last round knockdown

NEW YORK W) -- Unbeaten
Muhammad Ali came alive in the
waning minutes of the 15th round
and stopped crude but strong
Oscar Bonavena on three knock-
downs in an amazing finish at
Madison Square Garden last night.
Weary and desperately trying
to hold off the bull like rushes
and lunges of the South American
heavyweight champion from Ar-
gentina, Ali suddenly nailed the
strong-jawed Bonavena with a
solid left hook to the jaw that3
dropped Oscar for a count of six.
The capacity crowd in the Gar-
den roared as Ali followed with a
sharp right-left combination to
the jaw then again felled the gutty,
Bonavena for a count of four. As
he was getting the mandatory
eight-count, Bonavena's corner
tossed a towel into mid-ring.-
But Ali unloaded another left
and right that felled the South
American again.
This immediately ended the
fight under the three-knockdown
rule at 2:03 of the final round. The
fight had been astonishingly close
until Ali's sudden thunder brought
it to a wild end.
Ali, who had held the heavy-
weight title under the name of
Cassius Clay, had predicted he
would stop the, cocky Argentine"
in the ninth round.
"In nine he'll be mine," boasted
Ali.
But at the end of nine, it was
he who seemed weary and worried.
Ali, weighing 212 pounds to
Bonavena's 204, had started fast,
boxing rings around the broad,
muscular 6-to-1 underdog.
Through the first seven rounds
he had piled up a big lead over
his plunging, charging shorter
rival. Bonavena was warned five
times for low blows by referee
Mark Conn and also hit low with
several other punches apparently
unnoticed by the referee.

Conn took the first round away
from Bonavena for two low blows
although Ali had won the round
handily.
In the sixth round Ali followed
a left-handed miss by a left hand
of his own that buckled Oscar's
knees. That was the best punch
of the fight until the wild finish.
Bonavena appeared to have won
the fourth round with his chops
to the body and head, and nothing
much more until the eighth.
Then the chunky 5-foot-6 un-
derdog began to score readily with
thumping lefts and rights to the
body and occasionally clubbing
right and left hands to the head.
Ali, who stands 6-foot-3 and
has six inches in reach, had been
punching with good combinations
earlier but now couldn't hold back
Oscar with singly-thrown jabs
and hooks.

Duke*
Special To The Daily
DURHAM, N.C. - Duke sent
Michigan reeling to its t h i r d
loss in three games here yes-
terday, powering past the
Wolverines 95-74 in an inter-
sectional basketball game.
The Blue Devils, listed among
the top 20 teams in the pre-season
polls, rallied behind 6-10 Randy
Denton to win their second game
against one loss:
Denton, who finished with a
game-high 35 points and garnered
over a dozen rebounds off both
boards, scored 15 points in the
first half- as the Blue Devils rolled
up a 47-38 lead, then scored six
straight points at the beginning
of the second half as Duke pulled
out to a 13 point margin, 53-40.

OSCAR BONAVENA blasts Muhammad Ali in the first round of
last night's fight. Ali won on a fifteenth round technical knockout.

Duke had just one other man in
double figures-6-4 forward Richie
O'Connor - but the Blue Devils
had four men with eight points
each.
The Blue Devils moved quickly
out into the lead behind the scor-
ing of Denton and O'Connor, aid-
ed by a number of Michigan turn-
overs and some cold-shooting on
the part of the Wolverines. The
Wolverines, who made about 25
per cent of their field goals in the
first ten minutes, finished the
half with a cool 13 of 36 for 39
per cent. Duke shot a more re-
spectable 48.1 per cent for the
same period.

FRESHMEN STAR

Special To The Daily
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - T h e
Michigan wrestling team flexed its
muscles for the first time yester-
day, defeating Maryland 25-7. The
meet was never in doubt, as the
Wolverines won in seven of the
ten weight classes and lost in only
one. As in last Saturday's meet at
Navy, the two freshmen each won,
thoroughly dominating their op-
ponents in the victory.
In fact, the only Michigan
grappler to lose was defending Big
Ten champion Tim Cech. Wrestl-
ing in the 134 lb. class, Cech lost
to the Terrapins' Kim Hagedorn, a
freshman, in a 3-2 decision. The
match was tied at 1-1 with only

both the offensive and defensive
boards.
Henry Wilmore led Michigan's
scoring attack for the second time
in two games, collecting 24 points
before fouling out with about two
minutes left in -the game. He got
help from fellow-sophomore Ken
Brady, who poured in 16 points,
and senior Dan Fife, who added
17.
Wayne Grabiec, who was bench-
ed at the start of the game in
favor of Dave Hart, was Mich-
igan's fourth man in double fig-
ures, scoring 12 points on six field
goals, most of them from the 20-
30 foot range.
But the Wolverines got little
scoring help from forwards Rod
Ford, Ernie Johnson, John Lock-

Johnson picked up two points

Duke led by 13, 29-16, midway
through the first half, but the
Wolverines, hitting a sudden hot
streak and taking advantage of J--r
three consecutive Blue Devil turn-at
overs, cut the margin to 31-27.{'
Brady scored on two lay-ups and
a free throw, Wilmore added a
pair of free throws, and Fife
scored on a fast-break lay-up dur-

AP poll* tells a fameliar story.
Bruins continue maple mastery

I

By The Associated Press
The wunderbar UCLA Bruins,
seeking their fifth straight NCAA
basketball crown, were over-
whelmingly rated the finest bas-
ketball team in the country by
the Associated Press' first major
college basketball poll of the 1970-
71 season.
South Carolina was a distant
second, trailing the Bruins by 52

overall votes and 20 first-place
tallies.
Skyscraping Jacksonville moved
up one place in the poll to third,
on the strength of two overwhelm-
ing victories. Marquette, winner of
last season's National Invitational
Tournament, moved into the num-
ber four spot behind the play of
Dean Meminger and Jim Chones.
Making a big move in the poll
was Indiana, the pre-season pick
11. Kansas 2-0 85
rndiana 2--0 85
13. Western Kentucky 2-0 81
14. Army 2-0 61
15. New Mexico St. 2-0 59
16. Utah State 2-1 50
17. Tennessee 2-0 42
18. Oregon 3--0 38
19. St. Bonaventure 2-0 34
20. Louisville 2-0 27

to grab the Big Ten championship.
Kentucky dropped to fifth de-
spite wins over sixth-rated Notre
Dame and Big Ten contender
Michigan, and Drake, last year's
MVC champ playing out of lovely
Des Moines, moved from their.
pre-season ranking of tenth to
seventh in the poll.
Penn also made a three-place
hop to eighth while Southern Cal
and Villanova, numbers seven and
eight in the pre-season poll, drop-S
ped to ninth and tenth respec-
tively.

In the heavyweight class, soph-
omire Rick Bolhouse gained his
second victory by defeating George
Jernigan 9-4. It is an oddity that
the only people on the team to
win both of their matches this
weekend have been the freshmen
and sophomores.
