KNICKS TAKE NBA CROWN
MONTREAL CAPTURES CUP

NY club
crushes
LAI102-93
LOS ANGELES (A"'-The New
York K n i c k s combined their
sticky defense with an offense
paced by Earl Monroe and Bill
Bradley to whip the defending
champion Los Angeles Lakers
102-93 last night and capture the
National Basketball Association
playoff finals 4-1.
The Knicks had to withstand a
furious second half baker rally in
order to clinch their title, the
second in four years for the Red
Holtzman coachs squad.
The Lakers were a crippled
bunch and although they led at
'halftime by two points, they
could not keep us with the fleet-
footed Knicks. Jerry West, hob-
bled with two pulled hamstrings
could not even edge into douale
figures.
The Michigan nine travels
westward and southerly in pur-
suit of the Big Ten crown. All
the information is available on
page 11.
And when physical mishap did
not keep the Lakers down, fools
did. Lakers Bill Bridges, _il
Goodrich and Hap Hairston could
not handle the Knick forwavds
and were in deep foul troubl' vis
the second half.
Surprisingly with the offensise
punch of Goodrich and West om,
Wilt Chamberlain did not go to
the bucket. But even so, the
scrappy Lakers playing for pride
brought the score to 86-82 at one
point but could not further cut
that margin.

18th title
CHICAGO R) - - Yvan
Cournoyer's record break-
15th goal of the entire play-
off series broke a 4-4 tie in
the final period and swept
the Montreal Canadiens to
the Stanley Cup champion-
ship with a 6-4 victory over
the Chicago Black Hawks
last night.
The Canadiens, who reached
the cup finals by eliminating
Buffalo and Philadelphia, took
the title series four games to
two.
A record goal scoring series
for six games with a two team
total of 56, ended with the Ca-
nadiens erasing an early 2-0
Chicago lead and Hawk Pit Mar-
tin's final three goal hat trick.
After a sizzling second period
in which Montreal finally moved
ahead 3-2 and Chicago twice
rallied for ties at 3-3 and 4-4,
Cournoyer turned the tide at 8:13
of the third and final period with
a scoring poke after a rebound
of a shot by Jacques Lemaire
which caromed back off the glass
partition behind the Hawk goal.
It gave Cournoyer his 15th
goal in 16 playoff games, shatter-
ing the record of 14 set by team-
mate Frank Mahovlich in 20
playoff games in 1971.
Cournoyer also got two as-
sists, the last on Marc Tardiff's
power play goal which wrapped
up the spirited contest at 12:42 in
the final period.

TONY ESPOSITO (31) sweeps the puck away with Henri Richard hanging on his shoulder, Tony's
antics were. to no avail as the powerful Canadiens swamped the Black Hawks for the coveted Stanley
Cup.

Snorts of The Daily Royals

Netters revel
The invincible Michigan netters did it again, whipping MSU,
9-0 Wednesday and EMU, "7-1 yesterday. Coach Brian Eisner's
only problem seems to be a suitable replacement in number one
doubles if Freddie DeJesus is not 100 per cent for the Big Ten
championships. Jerry Karzen's got the Eisner nod at the mo-
ment.
Maplewood mumblings
The Virginia Squires inked Barry Parkhill to a multi-year con-
tract. Coming after the signing of Swen Nater, tfie deal gives
the Squires some name people to run with Dr. J. J .. Berryl
Shipley, head coach at Southwestern Louisiana, has been sus-
pended indefinitely by the Southland Conference for terming the
loop "Mickey Mouse" . . . and Geoff Petrie of Portland won
the One-on-One contest, beating Cleveland's spunky Barry Clem-
ens by a 36-32 count.
