Darrell Griffith scored 23 hard-earned
points, leading the Louisville Cardinals
to their, first NCAA basketball cham-
pionship with a 59-54 triumph over the
UCLA Bruins Monday night.
The loss brought the Bruins down to
earth after a late-season surge that saw

That field goal provided the nation's

second-ranked team with a 56-54 lead

In the consolation game, held earlier

scored 35 points to trigger Purdue to a

Carroll was the dominating figure
throughout the game, scoring 2,0 of his
points to lead the Boilermaker's into a
32-27 lead at the half.

With the help of their leading player,,
the Boilermakers rolled up a 19-point
lead shortly before the end.
Purdue, closing out its season at 23-
10, had only one other player in double
figures, Keith Edmonson with 17 points.
The Hawkeyes, finishing at 23-10, got
19 points from Kenny Arnold and 10
from Bob Hanson.
Before Purdue broke open the game
in the second half, the Big Ten teams
were no more than six points apart.
When the Hawkeyes came to within
six points with 9:35 remaining, Carroll
went back to work with a couple of
close-in baskets to propel the Boiler-
makers into a double-figure lead that
they never relinquished.
