By DON MacLACHLAN,
THE 1976-77 college basketball season draws to a close this
weekend, but for some teams a "second season" will begin
March 12-13 with the opening of the NCAA Basketball Champion-
ships at eight regional sites.
Twenty-one conference champions will get berths along with
eleven at-large teams. If a conference runner-up is selected, it
gets placed in the opposite bracket from its conference champion
s" that two teams from the same conference cannot meet until the'
national finals.
If Michigan defeats Illinois Thursday night, the Wolver-
ines would clinch a berth in the Mideast Regional as the Big
Ten Champion, because second place Minnesota is on proba-
tion and ineligible for tournament action.
The Wolverines would play an at-large team in Bloomington
Sunday, March 13, assuming they win one of two remaining con-
ference encounters. The opposition in the opening round could be
one of a number of independents and/or conference runner-ups.
Here is a sketch of the tournament picture, with a lot oft
question marks to be answered on Sunday at three o'clock when
the NCAA office releases the names of the at-large institutions
receiving invitations to the tournament, along with the first round

Now interviewing
for managemen t
opportunities
The United States Army is interviewing
sophomores and other selected students hav-
ing two years remaining on campus for
future positions as Army officers.
Applicants are required to participate in a
six-week summer program at Fort Knox, Ky.,
to qualify for college ROTC courses next
year. Pay for the six weeks is approximately
$500, plus travel, room and board.
Students who complete the summer train-
ing and enter ROTC do not have to serve on
active duty upon graduation,

The three other conference champs invited to the tournament
will come out of the ECAC. Three regional champions will move
on to the NCAA's. Providence or Holy Crass will probably win the
the New England Regional, while Syracuse and St. John's rate
as the favorites in the other two regionals.
So much for the 21 conference champs - what about the
at-large teams? In the ACC, Southwest and Metro Seven Con-
ferences, a tournament is held to establish an NCAA repre-
sentative. Thus, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Louisville -
the regular season champs - are not assured of a berth in
the tournament. However, if they lose in the conference tour-
naments, an at-large bid would be possible.
Creighton, Detroit, Indiana State, Marquette, Nevada-Las
Vegas, Notre Dame, North Texas State and Oral Roberts are all
powerful independents.
Oregon, Arizona, Cincinnati and the ACC and SEC runner-ups_
are second place teams that deserve invitations.
Purdue, currently in third place in the Big Ten, must win
its remaining two games with Michigan State- and Michigan and
hope for Wisconsin or Northwestern to upset Minnesota if it is
to gain an NCAA berth as the Big Ten runner-up.
Key games this weekend are Marquette-Creighton, Notre
Dame-San Francisco and Kentucky-Tennessee. Al McGuire and
his Warriors must beat Creighton if they are to proceed into the
NCAA's. By the time Marquette tips off with Michigan on Sun-
day the at-large teams will have been selected.
If Tennessee beats Kentucky, the Vols would be placed
in the Mideast Regional with the Wolverines - and would
prevent Kentucky from grabbing a possible home court ad-
vantage in the regional semi-finals - to be held in Rupp
Arena on the Kentucky campus.
Who will Michigan play? It could be Detroit, Oregon the
Pac 8 runner-up, Arizona, the WAC runner-up (a possible con-
frontation between Michigan coach Johnny Orr and one of his ex-
assistants Fred Snowden), the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame or
even Marquette - if theWarriors make it. An ACC representative'
is also a possible opponent.
The Big Ten winner proceeds to play the winner of the Ohio.
Valley - at-large game. In the example, if Michigan wins, it,
would face Notre Dame or Austin Peay in Lexington on March
17.
There are plenty of alternatives - and the real NCAA pair-
ings will be released Sunday at three, during the Michigan-
Marquettebgame. Play around w h the pairings a little - some
interesting match-ups could come up.

If you want an incredible slide rule calculator that's
also programmable, then this is the one for you.
There're 74 preprogrammed functions and opera-
tions. And it has AOS, TI's unique algebraic operating
system, the underlying reason an SR-56 is so power-
ful. It'll let you handle problems with as many as
9 sets of parentheses. Talk about memory. An SR-56
has 10 (11 if you count the T-register.).And you can do'
arithinetic with all of them.
Chances are you'll soon discover how really easy
it is to program. An SR-56 has 100 steps. Six logical
decision functions. Four levels of subroutines. Dec-
rement and skip on zero. Compare a test register
with the display to make a conditional branch. And
this is just the beginning.
Think about it. Can you really afford to put off get-
ting your SR-56, now?
