Morris, Carroll key win
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Drake Morris hit eight free throws down the
stretch as Purdue defeated Duke 68-60 yesterday to claim the championship of the
NCAA Mideast Regional basketball tournament.
The victory was Purdue's 22nd against nine defeats and earned the
Boilermakers a date next Saturday with UCLA in the NCAA semifinals at
Purdue took its first lead in the second half, but the Boilermakers were unable
to build a significant margin until Morris began earning trips to the foul line.
A pair of Morris free throws with 9:38 to play gave Purdue a 47-43 lead.
Morris hit six more free throws inside the last five minutes as the
Boilermakers expanded a shaky three-point margin to 58-50 with 3:09 left.
Duke, which finished 24-9, made its final challenge behind baskets by Bob
Bender and Gene Banks. But Purdue put the game away at 1:53 on a three-point
play by Joe Barry Carroll to build the margin to 61-54.
Carroll, Purdue's 7-foot-1 All-America center, led both teams in scoring with 26
points. Keith Edmonson had 12 and Morris added 10.
Mike Gminski, Duke's 6-11 center, led the Blue Devils with 17 points, but
managed only two baskets in the second half.
The game was tied seven times before Purdue got its first lead at 39-37 on a
dunk by Arnette Hallman at 14-38. Edmonson put Purdue ahead to stay at 9:51
when his 15-footer gave Purdue a 45-43 lead.
Gminski hit the layup that gave Duke its seven-point lead but he was limited to
a single basket the rest of the half.
Carroll, meanwhile, began to find breathing space underneath. His six-footer
brought the Boilermakers within 18-15 at 9:07 and his three-point play at 6:23
brought Purdue within 22-20.
Bruins post easy victor
TUSCON, Arizona (AP)-Sophomore Mike Sanders and senior Kiki Vande.weghe
tossed in 22 points each to lead the UCLA Bruins past Clemson 85-74 yesterday in
the finals of the NCAA West Regional basketball tournament.
The victory sends the 21-9 Bruins to the NCAA Final Four in Indianapolis March
22, UCLA's first trip to the national semifinals since 1976. Clemson, which was par-
ticipating in the NCAA tournament for the first time in the school's history,
finished its season at 23-9.
A Clemson cold spell at the start of the second half, including a five-minute
period during which the Tigers went scoreless, led to the impressive victory by the
Bruins. UCLA ran off an 11-2 spurt in the early seconds of the half to gain an 18-
point advantage at 57-39.
Clemson never was closer than 10 points after that time. Vandeweghe, one of
two starting seniors for UCLA, hit five of six free throw attempts in the closing
seconds of the game to preserve the Bruin victory.
Guard Billy Williams scored 18 points to lead Clemson. UCLA'shalftime edge of
46-35 represented its largest lead of the game to that point.
Neither team was able to assert itself in the game's opening minutes, with both
squads shooting well and UCLA matching up well against taller Clemson on the
UCLA hit an impjresive 58 percent of its floor shots in the period, and was led in
the early going by 14 points from Sanders and 10 from Vandeweghe.

'WE'VE GOT MOMENTUM -IOWA'S OLSON:
Hawkeyes, Hoyas square off today
PHILADELPHIA (AP ) -Iowa is patched up, physically
and emotionally, and ready to shoot for the NCAA's East
regional basketball championship at 1 p.m. today.
"We endured plenty of probletns, and hung in tough
enough to make the playoffs," said Coach Lute Olson. "Now
we've got momentum."
Though once more playing the familiar role of the
nderdog, Olson's overachievers exuded quiet confidence on
the eve of their regional championship game with
Georgetown, the Big East power. Louisville faces Louisiana
State in the Midwest regional at 3 p.m. in Houston.
"WE'VE BEEN underdogs so long that it would be a
shock to be in any other position at this point," Olson told a
press conference Saturday. "But I never doubted that we
would come out of Greensboro. We feel we belong here."
Iowa, unloved in the national polls and merely a fourth-
jace team in the Big Ten this year, had to fight through
Virginia 'Commonwealth and North Carolina State in the
East sub-regionals in Greensboro, N.C., before coming to
Philadelphia for the regional semifinals. Here, the Hawkeyes
upset sixth-ranked Syracuse 88-77 Friday nght to make the
JUST BEING IN the East final would seem to be a minor
miracle for this troubled team which has been crippled time
and again by injuries to both its players and staff.
The most crippling blow has been to team leader Ronnie
Lester, who hurt his knee and needed surgery during the
season. At varying intervals, forward Mark Gannon and
guards Kenny Arnold and Bob Hansen have been out with
injuries. Lester, although not playing up to capacity, is back
in service for the Hawkeyes, as are Arnold and Hansen.
"Our team played well without Ronnie and is playing
even better with him," said Olson. "He doesn't have to be
playing up to capacity to be a factor for us. He's our security
blanket -he gives our team stability."
ALONG WITH the problems to players, the team
recently received another jolt when assistant coach Tony
McAndrews was hurt badly in an airplane accident. That
initially caused emotional problems for the Hawkeyes.
"The players over-reacted, wanted to win all the games
for Tony," said Olson. "But we've adjusted to his loss now."
Georgetown, on the other hand, has no problems,
physical or emotional. Especially emotional.
"WE TRY not to appeal to the players' emotions-here,"
said Georgetown Coach John Thompson. "We try to keep a
low profile. We find that players function better that way.
Our practices are all quiet - no screaming and no emotion."
That type of approach has worked just fine for the 11th-
ranked Hoyas, who defeated Maryland 74-68 in Friday night's
other East semifinal game- for their 15th straight victory,
longest streak in the country.
Clemson hit 52 percent from the field in
the opening 20 minutes, with reserve
forward Fred Gilliam's nine points
keeping the Tigers close.
Two of Clemson's 6-10 front-liners,
Larry Nance and Horace Wyatt, picked
up three fouls each in the first half.
That limited their mobility in the
second stanza, and allowed Sanders
and Vandeweghe to maneuver at will
Freshman guard Rod Foster chipped
in 12 points for UCLA. Nance and
Gilliam had 13 apiece for the Tigers.

Tournament-tough Illinois faces
a familiar foe in NIT semifinal
NEW YORK (AP)-There's some-
thing about tournament basketball that
brings out the best in the University of
The Fighting Illini, who meet
Minnesota in the semifinals of the 43rd
nnual National Invitation Tournament
morrow night at Madison Square
Garden, are undefeated in their last 13
contests in tourney action.
- This season Lou Henson's club
captured its All-Illini Classic and the
Rainbow Classic as well as three games
thus far in the NIT.
LAST YEAR Henson saw is athletes
win the titles -of the Great Alaskan
Shootout and the Kentucky Invitational.
Any particular reason for this
"None that I can think of," said
enson, now in his fifth year in the Big
Ten school after spending nine seasons
at New Mexico, where he compiled a
"Frankly, I wish I knew the reason. I
would try to get the team to do the same
things during the regular season. I'm
just hoping it can last for two more
games in the NIT."
ILLINOIS, 21-12, opposes the
Gophers, 20-10, in the first half of
Monday's doubleheader. Virginia, which
beat Michigan, 79-68, Thursday behind
Ralph Sampson's 27 points, faces
Nevada-Las Vegas, 23-7, in the windup.
The consolation and championship
contests are scheduled Wednesday.
Illinois and Minnesota divided their
two meetings during the Big Ten
schedule. The Illini dropped a four-
pointer in Minneapolis and then
prevailed by two in overtime at home.

AS MIGHT BE expected, Henson is
concerned about stopping Kevin
McHale, the Gophers' 6-11 center who is
averaging 18.4 points and 9.1 rebounds.
"There's no question that he's an All-
American," Henson said of the
Hibbing, Minn., resident, who was a
member of last summer's Pan-
American Games championship squad.
"McHale will be among the top three
players picked in the NBA draft. He
- gives Minnesota tremendous size," said
