NCAA TOURNEY WINDS DOWN:
4 Big Ten teams

By the Associated Press,
UCLA basketball Coach Larry
rown, still excited about the Bruins'
upset of DePaul in the NCAA
tournament, talked yesterday about
what comes next-Ohio State-and
admits he's a little scared.
"It's really exciting for us, the whole
thing of just getting to play in the NCAA
tournament, and then beating DePaul,"
said Brown, whose unranked Bruins
meet the No. 10 Buckeyes in a third-
round- NCAA game in Tucson, Ariz.,
tomorrow night.
"I'VE- SEEN Ohio State play a few
times and I haven't seen a better team
this season. Playing them is like
playing a pro team, they're so physical.
They're bigger than us at every
position, they're well coached, and I'm
a little frightened," Brown said.
"When we were in Tempe practicing
last Saturday and Ohio State was on the
floor, I wanted to keep our kids in the
locker room, didn't want them to take
heir warmups off and embarrass
CLA;" he added with a grin.
Ohio State, now 21-7, drew an opening
round bye, then demolished Arizona
State 89-75 Sunday.
PROGRESSIVE REBOUNDING and
more scoring punch from Kelvin
Ransey are the big reasons the
Buckeyes, 1960 champions, are among

the final 16 teams this year.
The Buckeyes, critics agree, are
displacing their best performances after
a mid-season slump cost them three
straight defeats and four of five losses
to Big Ten Conference rivals.
Rebounding was a special problem

Arizona State, almost 10 points more
than his average in his final season.
The 6-1 guard had sacrificed
scoring-he hit at a 21.4-point clip as
a junior-to run the Buckeyes' attack.
"I don't think there's any letup now,"
Ransey said. "We're playing with a lot

during that slump.
"We're getting more offensive
rebounds now. All of our guys are
following their shots and putting the
ball back in," said 6-foot-14 center Herb
Williams, whose 25-point, nine-rebound
show helped riddle Arizona State.
THE RE-EMERGENCE of Ransey
as a big scorer has helped, too. His
jump shots produced 25 points against

PRES
Hubbard watches alone.. ..
.. , what might have'been
By MARK MIHANOVIC
A bright red cowboy hat atop his head, the tall, young black man
standing in the players' tunnel at Crisler Arena was far from inconspicuous.
From time to time, friends and fans who recognized him stopped and
exchanged greetings.
But Phil Hubbard seemed a lonely figure as he watched his former
teammates convincingly defeat Texas-El Paso, 74-65, Monday night in the
second round of the National Invitational Tournament.
Whether or not Hubbard regrets leaving Michigan for "green"-er
pastures with the Detroit Pistons is strictly conjecture. He hasn't broken
down and admitted to as much; rath'er, he has accepted his decision and
stood by it like a man, without excuses.
But the contrast between the Wolverines' situation this season and that
of the Pistons must dishearten Hubbard. Monday night's win brought
Michigan's total to 17 for the year, one more than Detroit has accumulated;
the difference, of course, is thatthe Pistonshave an edge in the loss column
of 55 to 1.}.
The won-loss ratio isn't the only difference between Hubbard's old team
and his new one, though. While the Pistons have been embroiled in
dissension all year, with star center Bob Lanier being traded and scoring
machine Bob McAdoo relegated to the bench, Michigan has pulled together
and given a 100 percent effort to make up for the Hub's departure. Dick
Vitale has been fired, and things aren't going much more smoothly for
Richie Adubato; on the other hand, Blue coach Johnny Orr has received a
great deal of praise for having a respectable season with a team that was
expected to be anything but respectable.
The plain simple truth, however, is that Phil Hubbard is being paid well
to play basketball, which couldn't have happened at Michigan. Whether that
plus outweighs the minuses of his decision is something only Hubbard can
answer.
If 'Hub' had stayed
Orr has said several times during the year that he has a fatherly
affection for Hubbard and that he wishes him nothing but the best. But you
always get the feeling that in the back of Orr's mind was the thought that if
only the wayward son hadn't strayed, if only he had stayed home, in Ann
Arbor, then this Michigan team could have really been something special.
After the cagers defeated the University of Detroit early in the year, a
reporter asked Orr what Hubbard's on-court presence would mean to his
squad.
"Oh, if we had Hubbard. . . hell, if we had Hubbard . .." Orr's voice
wistfully trailed off.
"I'm sure, in his own mind, he's sorry that he left, but those things
happen," assistant coach Bill Frieder said yesterday. "The biggest thing
that he would have given us is depth up front.
"If Hubbard had come back and played as he did last year, which wasn't
very well, we might not have contended for the Big Ten title. In order to
contend for the Big Ten title, we'd have needed him to play like he did as a
freshman and sophomore."
There's no questioning the fact that Hubbard's departure was a tough
blow for the Wolverines. But, in an indirect way, the Blue cagers started to
become a good basketball team the day that the 6-8 All-American from
Canton, Ohio announced that he was turning pro.
Frontcourt key for Blue
That day Mike McGee probably realized that the Wolverines would
go as far as his scoring ability would take them. That day Paul Heuerman
probably realized that the center job was his if he worked for it and that he'd
better get his body ready for the Big Ten wars. That day Thad Garner
probably realized that he could become a team leader and that if he played
an aggressive, scrambling defense, it would be contagious.
Those three frontcourt men have been the key to Michigan's success this
season, and they keyed the victory over UTEP. McGee had his second
straight 25-point game in the NIT and pulled in six rebounds. Heuerman
went five for seven from the field, scored 12 points, nabbed eight rebounds on
the defensive end of the court and made two steals. And Garner's stats read
seven boards (five offensive), five assists, one blocked shot, and three
steals.
All told, the Blue outrebounded the taller Miners (with a frontline of 6-7
Anthony Burns, 6-7 Roshern Arnie, and 6-9 center Terry White) by a 37-26
count. The Wolverines dominated underneath the basket, where they were
supposed to be the weakest with the loss of Hubbard.
Now, Michigan must travel to Virginia Thursday night to take on the
Cavaliers and the 7-4 freshman giant, Ralph Sampson, with the winner
advancing to the semifinals in Madison Square Garden next Monday.
And somewhere out there the tall black man with the bright red cowboy
hat will be listening for the results-and no doubt wondering what might
have been.

of emotion. Our bench is really coming
through."
The Buckeyes may well need that
emotion against UCLA, although there
had been some question whether the
Bruins,, who finished fourth in the
Pacific 10 this season and had a 17-9
overall'record, would even be invited to
the NCAA tournament. After they were,
they opened with an 87-74 victory over
Old Dominion, then stunned top-ranked
DePaul 77-71 in the second round last
Sunday in Tempe.
PURDUE'S CHANCES in
tomorrow's NCAA matchup with arch-
rival Indiana depend greatly on
whether All-American center Joe
Barry Carroll can solve an air-tight
Hoosier defense that has virtually han-
dcuffed him in two previous meetings
this year.
The 7-foot-1 Carroll, a 22-point-per-
game scorer for the season, managed
only 11 points in a 69-58 loss at Indiana
in January. He fouled out with only
seven points in the Boilermakers' 56-51
victory the following week at Purdue.
Indiana's leading scorer, Mike Wood-
son, missed both those games during
his recovery from a back injury.
"IT HAS TO do with talent," Purdue
Coach Lee Rose said in a telephone in-
terview from his office at West Lafayet-
te on Tuesday. "They (the Hoosiers)
are No.1 in the Big Ten in defense."
The seventh-ranked Hoosiers are 21-7

and have a seven-game winning string
since Woodson returned from a two-
month lay-off following surgery. The
No. 20-rated Boilermakers stand 20-9
going into Thursday night's Mideast
Regional semifinals at Lexington, Ky.,
Rose's hometown.
"When you take Ray Tolbert and
Landon Turner, who are quick, agile,
have great mobility and do a great job
on defense, and put them around
Joe. . . and especially when they have
Woodson back, who is a great player, it
makes it difficult for us to do what we'd
like to do," said Rose, caught up
already in the tremendous intrastate
rivalry, even though it's only his second
year at Purdue.
"WE HAD played twice last year and
got to go to New York,and play them
again in the National Invitation Tour-
nament. And lo and behold we end up
against them this year in the NCAA,"
Rose said. "'Both teams play with
commitment and emogpn, yet it comes
down to which team executes best. As
far as the rivalry, it's just amazing.
This is one of the most unique rivalries
in athletics."
Meanwhile, Duke's Vince Taylor still
smarts over the NCAA logic that mat-
ches the Blue Devils against Kentucky
in the semi-finals of the Mideast
Regional Thursday night - on the
Wildcats' home court.
"This game Thursday will be the
toughest of our season, and we all know
it," said the 6-foot-5 sophomore who
lived in the Lexington, Ky., area for
five years.
"We're going to have to claw our way
in there and out. There may be a lot of
blood on the floor before it's over."
Kentucky, 29-5, lost to Duke in a
season-opening game back in Novem-
ber. But it's a case of two different
teams now.
Duke, ranked No. 1 early in the
season, stumbled and has been
recovering. Kentucky has improved
consistently.
"Their freshmen have experience
now. That was Sam Bowie's' first
college game when we beat them, and
they have three other freshmen playing
a lot," Taylor noted.
But, Taylor added, "I don't think
we'll be intimidated by the situation.
We know what it's like to be at both en-
ds of the stick this season. We've grown
up a lot in the past couple of weeks. This
could be our chance to prove it."

The Michigan wrestlers took it on the
chin at the recent Big Ten
Championships at East Lansing. The
grapplers finished a disappointing sixth
at the meet held March 1 and 2.
There was ore bright spot, however, as
sophomore Eric Klasson won the
heavyweight title and thus
automatically qualified for the NCAA
Championships to be held in Corvallis,
-Ore., March 13-15.
Three other Wolverine wrestlers also
earned a trip to Oregon. All-American
senior Steve Fraser placed third in th6
177 division. Sophomore John Beljan
capped off a fine season by finishing
fourth in the 150 weight class and
another second-year man, Larry
Haughn also came in fourth in the 126
weight group.
Defending champion Iowa took the
Big Ten crown once again, waltzing
away from second place Wisconsin,
99.75-80.75. The Minnesota Gophers
took -third place with 47 points,
Michigan State nailed down the fourth
position with 41.25 points, and Ohio
State nosed out the Wolverines for fifth
plce by getting 33 points while the
Wolverines notched 31.
The wrestlers finished the season at a
11-6-1 clip, slightly better than their 10-6
record of last season.
Knicks 129, Rockets 109
NEW YORK (AP) - Ray Williams
scored 12 of his 35 points in the third
quarter last night to lead the New York
Knicks to a 129-109 National Basketball
Association victory over the Houston
Rockets.
The victory evened New York's
record at 36-36 and gave the Knicks the
fourth best record in the Eastern Con-
ference, one game ahead of Houston
with 10 games remaining in the regular
season. If they finish in that position,
the Knicks would have the home-court
advantage in the first round of the
playoffs.
TOBY KNIGHT and Michael Ray
Richardson added 22 points apiece for
the Knicks while Moses Malone topped
the Rockets with 24 points and 18
rebounds.

Monatreal(9, ligers 6
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -
Rodney Scott and Andre Dawson hit run-
scoring singles and Larry Parrish lof-
ted a sacrifice fly for three first-inning
runs that sparked the Montreal Expos
to a 9-6 exhibition baseball victory over
the Detroit Tigers yesterday.
The Expos increased their lead to 6-0
with three more runs in the second in-
ning. Ron Leflore, acquired in an off-
season trade from Detroit, scored Chris
Speier with a sacrifice fly, and Dawson
stroked an RBI single and Ellis Valen-
tine doubled home another run.
FRED NORMAN, signed by the Ex-
pos as a free agent, picked up the vic-
tory as the third of four Expos' pit-
chers. Elias Sosa got a save, while Pat
Underwood took the loss for Detroit.
Tom Brookens and Lance Parrish hit
home runs for the Tigers in the third off
Montreal starter Ross Grimsley, and
Steve Kemp homered off Dyar Millar,
the second Expos' hurler, in the fifth.
Pacers 114, Celtics 108
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Long-range
gunner Joe Hassett scored 13 points
during a 17-4 fourth-quarter burst that
carried Indiana to a 114-108 victory over
the Boston Celtics last night, ending the
Pacers' eight-game losing string in the
National Basketball Association.
Hassett scored three three-point
goals and a pair of two-pointers as the
Pacers turned back a Boston rally that
had closed the gap from 16 points to five
with under nine minutes remaining.
AFTER LARRY Bird's second three-
point goal pulled the Celtics to 89-84,
Hassett unloaded the first of his long-
distance bombs. Mike Bantom followed
with a basket and Hassett came back
with a two-pointer before Gerald
Henderson countered for Boston.
Another 10-2 Indiana burst, including
consecutive three-pointers by Hassett,
gave the Pacers their biggest lead at
106-88 before the Celtics' final rally.
