LOUISVILLE-On the whole,
they'd rather be in Philadelphia.r
But a trip to the NCAA final
four for Michigan's Wolverines
is still two games-and wins-
away.
First there will be mighty
Notre Dame at 9:10 tonight. If
the nintharanked Wolverines sur-
vive that test, they will face the
winner of the Missouri-Texas
Tech battle also being played
here today. But the seventh-'
ranked Fighting Irish want the
trip to Philadelphia just as bad-
ly. And if the winner's spoils
aren't enough incentive for the
South Bend crew, all of Notre
Dame's juniors and (non-play-
ing) seniors remember well the
last time the two teams met, in
the 1973 NCAA Mideast Re-:
gional.
The Wolverines won that game'
77-68. One of the keys to vic-
tory was the play of an un-{
heralded sophomore Wayman'
Britt, who held freshman 18.31
ppg scorer Adrian Dantley to a
mere two points.
Two years later, both are bet-
ter known. But while Britt has
become honorable-mention All-
Big Ten, Dantley is "everyone's
All-American." He is scoring at
a 28.6 clip and was second in,
NCAA player of the year voting
to Indiana's Scott May.
He is simply superb, and he
must be held in check if the
Wolverines are to play again
this season.
There is no consolation game
in the Regional this year.

is far from being the game'sc
only key point. Indeed, many
observers, a f t e r conceding
Dantley his 20-30 points, feel1
that the play of his somewhat1
I e s s e r teammates, Bruce
Flowers, Bill Paterno, Ray
Martin and .Dave Batton will
decide the contest.-

cans," said Michigan assistant
coach Bill Frieder. Despite that
fact none of Dantley's four
teammates have averaged more
than 11 points a game thus far.
Michiganders will remember
Flowers, a 6-8 forward, for his
play at Berkley high school,
where he was a consensus all-
stater for two years.
Flowers will play opposite
Michigan's Johnny Robinson,

who gives away two inches in
height but is stronger and a
better rebounder.
The 6-6 Paterno, a New Jer-
sey import, will play at guard
opposite Michigan's S t e v e
Grote. The two are very simi-
lar in style of play. As in the
Robinson - Flowers match-up,
Grote gives away height but
is stronger.
Notre Dame's other guard is
the 6-1 Martin, who is primarily
a playmaker. When scoring is
needed, the Irish often bring in
6-3 Don "Duck" Williams whose
late scoring led the Irish to
their comeback victory against
Cincinnati in their first round
NCAA game.
The Irish center is Batton, a
6-9, 225 sophomore from New
Jersey. Despite his height and
weight advantage over Michi-1

doesn't blow its cool when it
plays the top-ranked Hoosiers1
tonight.t
The Indiana - Alabama gamet
will be one of two NCAA Mid-
east Regional games at Baton
Rouge, La. The winners play
Saturday for the right to ad-'
vance to the national semi-
finals March 27 in Philadelphia.
The other Mideast game will:
pit No. 2 Marquette, 26-1,'
against Western Michigan, 20-
3.
"We're playing the best team a
in the country without any1
question," s a i d Newton,
whose Tide has a 23-4 record1
compared to Indiana's 28-0.
"To have gone unbeaten over'
the past two regular seasons
like Indiana has done is mind-I
boggling. But if we do our
part, it will be a good game."k

"About the Mideast Regional
being the toughest, I've foundi
there is no use thinking about
things you have no control
over," said Hoosier Coach Bob-
by Knight.
Indiana, which was 30-0
last year, then lost to Ken-
tucky in the regional final, is
favored to reach the regional
final again, this time probably
against Marquette.
Rutgers, 29-0,- the only other
unbeaten team in the tourna-
ment, is a solid favorite to win
the East Regional at Greens-
boro, N.C., after just barely4
qualifying with a 56-55 win over
Princeton. The Scarlet Knights,
ranked fourth nationally, will
play Connecticut while DePaul,
20-8, will meet Virginia Mili-
tary, 21-0.

Bama
Connecticut advanced by
beating Hofstra in overtime
while both DePaul and VMI got
into the regionals with upsets-
DePaul over Virginia and VMI
over Tennessee.
Another team expected to
have a much easier time than
Indiana in reaching the final
round is defending champion
UCLA. The fifth-ranked Bruins,:
24-4 and the cream of the West
Regionals at, their own Pauley
Pavilion, have to overcome
Pepperdine, 22-5, a team spark-
ed by Brazilian center Marcos
Leite and the son of a famous
football father, Ollie Matson Jr.
"I'm happy to be home,"
said UCLA Coach Gene Bar-
tow. "But I'm not sure that
the home court means as
much in a playoff situation
as it does during the regular!
!season."
The Bruins had won 98 straight
at home, including playoff}
games, before losing to Oregon
this past season.
