GREENSBORO, N.C.-The UCLA
Bruins found themselves in an un-
familiar position yesterday - and
didn't find it very comfortable.
Losing an NCAA playoff game
for the first time in eight years,
the Bruins changed into civilian
clothes in their lackluster dressing
room while Coach John Wooden
takled quietlyand painstakingly
with reporters.

where in California. We've play-
ed them in their home Satur-
day and at St. Louis last Decem-
ber," said Wooden.
Wooden conceded that the home-
town fans gave North Carolina
State inspiration, momentum, and
the edge.
. "When you make a run, the
crowd has a tremendous effect on
you," said Wooden.
"I thought we had the game
in hand on two different occa-
sions, but we made crucial mis-
takes," said the s c h ola rly
Wooden.
A happy but subdued Coach
N o r m a n Sloan told newsmen,
"They are an unbelievable bunch
of guys.
"I don't know where they get
that extra effort. It would be a
mistake to single out anyone andk
I won't try.
He said he thought his team
"played it perfectly" at the end
of regulation and the first over-
time, but the shots didn't go in."
Looking to Monday night's title
game with Marquette, winner over
Kansas in.the first semifinal, Sloan
said, "I picked them to win their
regional. They are a fine defen-
sive basketball team.
"Our problem will be getting
down to earth to concentrate on
the game."
