cept his patented slam dunk.
THE 6-FOOT-4 guard, with a vertical
jump of four feet, scored 18 of
Louisville's first 22 points and finished
with the half with that figure as the
Cardinals built a 34-29 lead at inter-
Griffith scored 16 more points in the
second half as the Metro Conference
champion ran up its lead to as much as
11 points with seven minutes left and
coasted home.
Griffith's performance was four poin-
ts shy of the national semifinal record
of 38 set by West Virginia's Jerry West
against Louisville in 1959.
THE HAWKEYES were greatly
hampered by the early loss of team
leader Ronnie Lester, who reinjured his
right knee while driving for the basket
with 7:47 remaining in the first half. At
that point, Lester had scored 10 of
Iowa's 17 points.
Louisville now is 32-3. Iowa, which
tied for fourth in the Big Ten, dropped
to 23-10. Louisville entered the
semifinals as the Midwest Regional
champion. Iowa won- the West
A few minutes after Iowa had trim-
med Louisville's lead to 22-21 on a
basket by Steve Waite, the Cardinals
took charge of the game's flow late in

the first half. They outscored the
Hawkeyes 12-6 to take a five-point lead
into the dressing room.
THE SECOND half belonged to
Louisville, as the Metro Conference
champions moved out to a 48-40 lead.
The game began as a virtual shooting
contest between Griffith and Lester.
Many of Griffith's shots were soft
outside jumpers, and his 18 points
helped the Cardinals mount a 22-17 lead
with 8:10 remaining in the opening half.
Lester scored Iowa's first 10 points
and kept the Hawkeyes within distance
of the Cardinals in the early going.
WHEN HE was injured, he was
fouled on the play and backcourt mate
Kenny Arnold sank both free throw at-
tempts to trim Louisville's lead to 22-19.
The knee that Lester hurt had been
operated on in mid-season, but Lester
made a season-ending comeback to
help drive the Hawkeyes into the
national semifinals.
Lester was one of four Hawkeyes in
double figures. Arnold wound up with a
team-leading 20 points while Vince
Brookins scored 14 and Steve Krafcisin
contributed 12.
Rodney McCray added 14 points to
Louisville's attack while Derek Smith
added 13. Along with Griffith they were

Vandeweghe, a senior, clinched the
victory by making four free throws in
the final 41 seconds after Purdue had
closed a 10-point deficit and pulled
within one.
It's the first trip to the finals in five
years for UCLA, which won 10 national
titles in a span of 12 years under Coach
John Wooden. The last was in 1973,
when the Bruins beat Louisville, 75-74,
in overtime in the semi-finals before
defeating Kentucky for the champion-
The victory over Purdue was yet

the season with a mediocre 8-6 record@
but blossomed when first-year Coach
Larry Brown gave his lineup an in-
fusion of youth.
UCLA's big scorer, freshmen Red
Foster, Darren Daye, Michael Holton
and Chris Pruitt and sophomore Mike
Sanders all made key contributions.
The Bruins, with no starter taller
than 6-foot-8, used a platoon system to
contain the 7-foot-1 Carroll. James
Wilkes, a 6-7 senior, started against
Carroll in UCLA's man-to-man defense,
but saw only limited action because of
foul trouble. Sanders, Pruitt and
seniors Darrell Allums and Gig Sims all
took turns playing Purdue's towering
center, and all did the job well.
UCLA led 47-37 midway through the
second half, but sophomore guard Keith
Edmonson helped the Boilermakers
close to within one at 57-56 with 3:40 to
play. Four free throws by Sanders of-
fset a pair of baskets by Carroll, the last
with 1:31 to go. And, although Foster,
the Bruins' playmaker, had fouled out
with 4:49 to go, UCLA was able to keep
control of the ball and force Purdue to
commit costly fouls.

zing Cin- THESE PROVED to be all UCLA
o started needed, as Holton connected twice from
the line in the final minute and Van-
deweghe sank four free throws.
The victory was the 14th in the last 17
games for the unranked Bruins, 22-9,
who posted victories over Old
Dominion, top-ranked DePaul, Ohio
State, and Clemson in earlier NCAA
tournament games. Purdue, ranked
20th, takes a 22-10 record into tomorrow
night's consolation game against Iowa.
UCLA HIT 50 per cent of its shots
from the field, 23 of 46, but Purdue
could manage just 43.1 per cent on 25 of
38. For severalstretches of the game,
the Boilermakers inexplicably neglec-
ted to work the ball inside to Carroll,
even though they were unable to hit
consistently from the outside. As a
result, Purdue's offense never really
got untracked.
The 6-foot-8 Vanderweghe, UCLA's
leading scorer with a 19.5 average,
worked effectively inside during the
early minutes and scored 12 of his
team's first 19 points. The Bruins out-
scored Purdue 10-3 in the final minutes
of the half to lead 33-25 at intermission.
Vandeweghe had 16 points in the half
and Daye, a 6-7 guard, scored six points
in the last two minutes.
Pruitt was the only other player to
score in double figures for UCLA with
12 points. Three players accounted for
all but eight of Purdue's points -a- Ed-

Netters clean up on Cinci. 9-0

Michigan was on top, 9-0, to pick up its
third victory of the young season.
Wolverine coach Brian Eisner was
very pleased with his team's perfor-
mance. "We played much better in this
match than against Kalamazoo
College. For one thing, Cincinnati was
not as good a team as Kalamazoo," he
"All the performances were very
good; I was especially pleased with the
play of co-captains (Jack) Neinken and
(Jud) Shaufler."
At the number one singles position,
Wolverine Matt Horwitch picked up a
very big win over Bob Kronage 6-3, 6-1.
Both players were representatives of
the Midwest region in last year's NCAA
tournament, and Kronage pulled a big
upset over UCLA's number two singles
player in that tourney.
Michigan's Michael Leach blew his
second singles opponent, Andy Porter,
right off the court by a 6-0, 6-2 score.
But when Leach and Horwitch com-
bined at the first doubles position
against Kronage and Gary Samuels,
things weren't easy swinging.
Leach and Horwitch won the first set,
6-1, but then seemed to lose some of
their concentration and were behind
most of the second set.

"We got a little lackadaisical in the
second set," said Leach. "Matt won a
big match at number one singles, and I
sorta' eased through my match. We
could have been more aggressive, but
we weren't, and they took advantage of
it in the second set."
The duo battled back to tie the score
at 6-6, sending the match into a nine-
point tie-breaker. The breaker was tied
at three until Leach rifled two serves
that the Cincinnati team couldn't return
to win the set, 7-6.
Freshman Mark Mees continued to
give a strong performance for Eisner
as he disposed of Samuels 6-0, 6-1.
Shaufler and Neinken didn't lose a
game at the fourth and fifth singles
positions respectively.
Another freshman, Tom Haney,
played very well for Michigan downing
Rick Zwelling 6-2, 6-0, to give his team a
commanding 6-0 lead after the singles
Although none of his players had any
trouble in their singles matches, Eisner
stressed the importance of playing a
weaker opponent. "The important thing
from this match is we did things that a
good team does and just didn't drag
through the match and not improve. We
are the type of team that tries to get the

most out of every match,' he said.
In the other doubles matches,
Neinken teamed up with Haney to
dump Porter and Zwelling, 6-2, 6-1, and
Louie McKee and Din McLaughlin won
the last match, 6-2, 6-1, over Tom
Levine and George Spohr.

Rugby Club
takes two
of three




The Michigan Rugby Club won two of
three games played yesterday at a
muddy Elbel Field. The Michigan 'A'
side crushed Battle Creek's 'A's,' 20-0,
on their way to their third Big Ten
championship. Veteran wing forward
Tommy Reboine was the leading scorer
in that game with eight points while
Dave Weber, Joe Kreder and Billy
Chung managed four points each.
Alex Mann scored the only try for
Michigan's 'B's' as they dropped a
heartbreaker to Sandusky, 7-4. Team
captain Dennis Odell blamed the loss on
inexperience and "mental mistakes."
ROOKIE WING Marty Schwartz and
Tommy Reboine were good for four
points each as the young Michigan 'C'
side put down Battle Creek's 'B's', 8-0.
This season, the Michigan 'A' team
has its eye on winning the Midwest Cup
Invitational Tournament and defending
their Big Ten title while the 'B's' are
hoping to avenge their second-nlace
