From Wire Service Reports
CHICAGO - Someone forgot to
tell the Detroit Pistons that teams
entering the National Basketball
Association playoffs for the first
time in years-especially on the
home court of a favored rival-
aren't supposed to win.
Thus, ignoring tradition, the 'De-
troiters took the floor at Chicago
Stadium yesterday afternoon and
bumped off the Chicago Bulls 97-88
in the first game of their NBA
Western Conference semi-final.
Sparked by clutch fourth quarter
shooting by Dave Bing and a
strong all-around effort by big
center Bob Lanier, Detroit took
charge of the contest from the on-
set and showed their poise under
pressure by withstanding a strong
final period comeback by the Bulls.
The Pistons beat Chicago at
their own game-great team de-
fense. Lanier, who led all scorers
with 27 points, did not think that
was too surprising, however.
"Defense has been our trade-
mark, too," said the 6-11 pivot-
man. "To beat these guys you
have to play the tough defense,
and we did."

test, the Pistons sl

Birmingham Brother R i c e, a
weird melange of tall upper-middle
class kids and obvious imports,
staged a ferocious rally to top
turnover - plagued C a s s Tech in
overtime, 60-56, for the Michigan
High School Class A basketball
title yesterday at East Lansing.
The Technicians had led 27-22 at
the half on the strength of hot
shooting by forward Tony Jamison
and center William Mayfield. Their'
zone stifled Warrior 6-9 center
Will Franklin. Brother Rice's of-'
fense was limited to 20-foot shots
by Dave Washington and Frank
..AFTER CASS stretched its lead
to 49-38 in the fourth quarter,
Brother Rice drove back furiously.
The key play was a basket given
Franklin on a goaltending call
without whic'h there would have
been no overtime.
With the score tied at 54-all, Rice
controlled the tip to start overtime.
Jim MacGuildwin canned a 20-
footer to give the Warriors the
lead. Tech's Jamieson quickly lost
the ball out of bounds, and Rice
s t a l1 e d successfully thereafter.
With 17 seconds to go, the des-

perate Technicians fouled Rourke,
and he bagged both charity 'tosses-
to clinch the game.
Brother Rice coach Bill Norton
substituted liberally: nine players
scored for his Warriors, led by
Washington with 14, MacGuidwen
with 12, and Rourke with 10.
Jamison led Cass Tech's gunners

After a brief Ram rally, the
Heights ripped off nine more con-
secutive points to move ahead,
29-14. Tropf canned a pair of free
throws and an 18-footer to cut
the halftime margin to 11, 31-20.
Holt had not lost its poise, how-
ever, and attempted to rally in
the second half. They were aided
greatly when Tiger centerMarcell

rebounds in the first half, got two

After long years of being stymied

Holt was undefeated going into
the game, and featured all-statet
center Jeff Tropf as a potent of-
fensive threat. But the Heights
threw a zone at Tropf, fronting
him and collapsing on him in the
middle. Holt was allowed the 20-
foot shot, and could not make it.
THE TIGERS, still smarting
from the memory of the last-min-'

tablishing their dominance. They
