Showdown

By KATHY HENNEGHAN
Indiana wrapped up its third
Big Ten basketball title in as
many years last weeknd with
an 83-82 win over Purdue. If the
Hoosiers win their remaining
three games, as will probably
be the case, it will be the first
time perennially powerful In-
diane will have completed its
regular season upbeaten.
Most of the attention, how-
ever, focuses on the battle for
second place in the conference
and the possibilities for post-
season tournament bids. Besides
current runner-up Purdue, 10-5
in Big Ten action, Michigan aad
Minnesota, tied for third place
at 9-6, and fifth place Michigan
State (8-7) are all still in the
running.
Indiana has clinched the
automatic berth in the first
round of the NCAA tourna-
ment. A second Big Ten team,
although not necessarily the
runner-up, may be picked on
an at-large basis by the NCAA
Basketball Committee to play
in either the West or the Mid-
west regional.
A decision on the second team
is expected Thursday morning,

March 6, nine days before thej
tourney begins. The Committee
will name the team it feels to
be the "most representative" at
that point. The early decision
somewhat diminishes the impor-
tance of the last round of Big
Ten action a week from to-
morrow.

hetime
"We've got to win two out of
the last three games," said Pur-
due coach Fred Schaus, "to bel
sure of a tournament bid : ome-I
where, whether it be the NCAA,I
the CCA, or the NIT."I
Michigan coach Johnny Orr
had the same attitude: "We:
still can make it, but I think
we have to win them all. There
is no more room for defeat.
This race for second is going
right down to the wire."
Big Ten teams this season
show a marked tendency to win
at home and lose on the road.
Excepting Indiana's perfect rec-
ord, home teams hold a distinct
44-16 advantage in conference
play.
Purdue must travel to Ann
Arbor tomorrow, and then head
to East Lansing Monday night.
The Wolverines would seem 'o
have an advantagebin that they
not only play at home tomor-
row, but also host Illinois Man-
day.
"It would help our cause
greatly," said Johnny Orr,
"if Minnesota loses one of
their next two games." The

Gus Stager is optimistic about
the Blue's chances of beating
out Wisconsin for second place.
"I think that we will have a
good shot at Wisconsin,' the
Michigan mentor commented.
THEY PROBABLY should.
Ohio State is in second place
thanks to their divers, but their
lack of talent in the swimming
events should spell their doom.
MSU has had trouble in the
stroke events all year so the
Blue should be able to pull away
from them.
Thus their o n 1 y problem
should be with the troublesome
Badgers who have excllent
swimmers in the stroke events
and cannot be taken lightly.
The action begins today at
1:00 p.m. in Indiana's Royer
Pool and ends with the finals
at 7:00 p.m. The meet concludes
