IOWA CITY (AP) - Back in
anuary, when the Big Ten Conference
basketball race still was young, there
was a team that had a 2-4 league
record, its best player on the sidelines
and a rugged schedule ahead.
Now, two months later, that same
team - Iowa - has a chance to win the
national collegiate title.
THE HAWKEYES of silver-haired
Coach Lute Olson won the East,
'egional by beating No. 11 Georgetown
1-80 Sunday and will play second-
ranked Louisville Saturday in the
The trip to Indianapolis culminates a
remarkable journey for Olson's team,
which has been shaken by a series of in-
juries and a plane crash that almost
killed an assistant coach.
"All during the year, people have
been willing to sell this crew down the
river," Olson said. "But I thought our
performance against an incredible
eorgetown team was absolutely fan-
IOWA, UNRATED and unheralded,
battled back from a 14-point deficit to
beat Georgetown in Philadelphia's
Spectrum, hitting 17 of 24 shots in the
The Hawkeyes won it when 6-foot-10
junior Steve Waite, who at times has
been criticized by Olson for not being
aggressive, drove to the basket, hit a
layup and then sank a free throw to
complete a three-point play with five
It was the third straight NCAA vic-
tory over a rated team. The Hawkeyes
earlier beat Syracuse and North
Carolina State, both in the final top 20.
"THIS WEEK in Indianapolis they'll
probably be talking about the other
three teams again," Olson said, "but
that's all right with us."
Iowa, which has yet to lose to a team
outside the Big Ten, started the season
on a rosy note, winning its first 10
games. But in the eighth game, senior
guard Ronnie Lester, a second team
All-American last year and Iowa's all-
time leading scorer, hurt his knee and
was sidelined indefinitely.
That was only the beginning of Iowa's
troubles. Sophomore guard Kenny Ar-
nold chipped a bone in the thumb of his
shooting hand, freshman forward Mark
Gannon went out with a knee injury,
reserve guard Greg Boyle did the same
and freshman guard Bob Hansen, who
replaced Lester, broke a bone in his
AND IF all that wasn't enough,
assistant coach Tony McAndrews was
seriously injured last month in the
crash of a light plane that was bringing
him back from a recruiting trip to Ken-
"Sometimes I just can't believe the
things that have happened to us," Olson
said. "But these guys just won't quit. I
don't think they know how."
Things have fallen into place in the
NCAA tournament, however, mainly
because Lester is back in the lineup.
He's not scoring as much as he did
before his injury, but his floor play has
been superb. Against Georgetown, he
handed out nine assists and had no tur-
"Ronnie is the glue that holds us
together," Olson said. "It's like having
a coach out ornhe floor."
TAMPA, Fla. (AP)-Unsigned
veteran outfielder Ken Griffey
has been placed on waivers, the
Cincinnati Reds announced
Griffey, who failed to reach a
contract agreement with the
Reds, will become a free agent at
the end of this season.
Reds President Dick Wagner
previously said the Reds were
seeking to trade the strong-
JIM FERGUSON, spokesman
for the Reds, said the waivers list
can determine if any other major
league clubs are interested in
Griffey. If no National League
club claims Griffey, he goes on
the American League waivers
list. The Reds can remove him
from waivers, however, if
another team claims him.

.. .Purdue faces UCLA
WEST LAFAYETTE (AP)-An upset.
-'loss to Northwestern may have been the
turning point in a season that has put
the Purdue Boilermakers in the Final
Four of the NCAA basketball
"I think that loss made the club think
about where it was going," said
Boilermaker Coach Lee Rose. "It was
the only time we lost two games in a
row and everyone realized it was a
ame we should have won."
Arnette Hallman, Purdue's 6-foot-7
senior forward, agrees that the game
was crucial in building 'te incentive
that has put the Boilermakers in
Saturday's semifinal against UCLA.
"We held a team meeting shortly
after losing at Northwestern and
hashed things out among ourselves,"
said Hallman. "That meeting seemed
to turn things around."
Hallman said the 22-9 Boilermakers
gPow compare the Northwestern loss to
one Michigan State experienced last
year against the Wildcats. -
"We all know about Michigan State
losing at Northwestern and then
winning the NCAA championship,"
Rose gave the Boilermakers Monday
off to continue enjoying the Mideast
Regional championship while the
coaching staff reviewed scouting
reports on the Bruins and prepared
plans for Saturday's game at Market
"We're pleased to be where we are,
but we're still two victories away from
our major objective," Rose said.
"We've got to be certain we don't
overwhelm ourselves with the success
we've had thus far.
"We're going to try and not get
caught up in all the Final Four hoopla,
but at the same time, this is the pot of
gold at the end of the rainbow and we're
going to try and enjoy it."
Saturday's game will be the 11th
basketball game between the two
schools and UCLA holds a commanding
7-3 advantage, including a 92-72 victory
in the 1969 NCAA title championship
when the Bruins had a dominating
center by the name of Lew Alcindor.
"It looks like we're facing tradition,"
Rose said. "Nobody has been to the
Final Four as many times as UCLA.
I'm sure it's much more comfortable
for them in this situation than it is for
This time the Boilermakers have the
dominating center in All-American Joe
Barry Carroll, their 7-1 senior who has
been playing some of the finest
basketball of his career since the
Carroll has averaged 26.5 points per
game as Purdue moved to Indianapolis
with victories over LaSalle, St. John's,
Indiana and Duke. He's made 41-of-67
shots from the field over that span.
"Our whole team knows Joe Barry is
our meal ticket," Rose said. "But we've
proven in the tournament that we are
more than a one-man team. Hallman's
rebounding and defense, Brian
Walker's playmaking and the outside
shooting of Drake Morris and Keith
Edmonson are all key ingredients for
"When our outside game is going, it
makes it that much easier for Joe
Barry to operate and there isn't a
center in the nation that can operate
more effectively," he added.
