the foul line, connected on one of his
free throw attempts with less than 25
seconds remaining to put the
Orangemen ahead to stay. Purdue,
behind the offensive rebounding of
junior Mike Scearce, rallied to tie
Syracuse in the latter stages of the
second half. Scearce, who averaged six
points during the season, connected for
18 points in the losing cause.
Poor outside shooting by the Boiler-=
makers (38 percent) plagued the Big
Ten representatives and enabled
Syracuse to open a five-point halftime
bulge, 37-32. Bothered by Syracuse's
quickness, the Boilermakers couldn't
connect on their perimeter shots.
But the Boilermakers whittled away
at the lead, cutting the Orangemen's
lead to one point, 54-53, with less than
seven minutes remaining. Brian
Walker then connected on both of his

free throw attempts to pull Purdue to a
tie at 55 with five minutes left.
The final outcome left Purdue with a
20-11 record on the season. The Boiler-
makers had advanced to the semifinals
by beating Rhode Island (84-58),
Dayton (50-46), and Duke (81-69). The
Orangemen advance to the finals Wed-
nesday night and Purdue marked the
fourth team to fall to Syracuse (21-11),
Marquette (88-81), Holy Cross (77-57),
and Michigan (91-76).
Tulsa 89, W. Va. 87
NEW YORK (AP) - Paul Pressey
scored 20 points, 11 down the stretch, to
pace Tulsa to a 89-87 victory over West
Virginia in the semifinals of the
National Invitation Tournament last
night.
Pressey was held scoreless in the fir-
st 12:10 of the second half but his basket
at 7:50 cut the West Virginia lead to 72-
69. The 6-foot-5 swingman scored again
to make it 78-77 and his three-point play
with 4:25 remaining in the game gave
the Golden Hurricanes an 80-78 lead and
also fouled out West Virginia captain
Greg Nance.
DIEGO MCCOY, a 6-2 sophomore
guard whose previous career high was
18 points, scored 30 for West Virginia to
keep them in the lead most of the game.
His last basket with 15 seconds to go,
cut Tulsa's lead to 89-87, then Tulsa's
David Brown missed two free throws
with eight seconds remaining to cost
the Mountaineers a final chance to send
the game into overtime.

But Greg Jones, West Virginia's
leading scorer during the regular
season, missed a 20-footer at the buzzer
to preserve Tulsa's triumph.
After leading 44-40 at halftime, West
Virginia went on an 11-5 run to take a 59-
53 lead, then a basket by McCoy with 10
minutes to go gave the Mountaineers
their largest lead, 70-63.
GREG STEWART scored 19 points
and Mike Anderson 15 for Tulsa, while
Nance followed McCoy for the Moun-
taineers with 22.
There were six lead changes in the
early minutes of the game, then a 13-2
run helped West Virginia to a 21-11 lead
with 13:03 to go.
But a three-point play by Pressey
sparked a seven-point run by Tulsa that
shaved the margin to 21-18 less than a
minute later. Mike Anderson, a 6-foot
guard, scored 10 of Tulsa's next 20 poin-
ts to give the Golden Hurricanes a 38-37
lead at 4:32, but West Virginia respon-
ded with seven straight points before
Ty Nilsson's basket for Tulsa left the
Mountaineers with their 44-40 lead at
halftime.
Despite the victory, Tulsa was out-
shot 61 percent to 47 by the Moun-
taineers, but West Virginia had its
problems at the free throw line, hitting
only 62 percent from the line while the
Golden Hurricanes hit 74 per cent of its
free throws. West Virginia outrebound
Tulsa 36-33.

ROWING
The Michigan crew team is sporting a new look thanks to the acquisition
of an Olympic rowing boat from the University of Pennsylvania. Six
thousand dollars was raised to procure the boat from Penn.
The first meet of the spring is April 4, when the men travel to Wayne
State to compete against Ohio State, Wyandotte, and the host, Wayne State.
The same day, the women's team will be in Grand Valley to face the likes of
Notre Dame and Grand Valley. The following week the men and women will
be in South Bend, tangling with Purdue, Notre Dame and Wayne State.
Michigan's pride is at stake here - for two years they were overwhelmed by
Purdue. Consequently, Purdue refused to compete against Michigan last
year, claiming the Wolverine crew team was far too inferior to its own.
FRISBEE
Anyone interested in seeing one of the most exciting events around
should make plans to attend "the big frisbee fling," April 11, at the CCRB
and Palmer Field. The Michigan frisbee club plays host to MSU, Ferris
State, Hope College, and Grand Valley. "Guts" and "ultimate frisbee" will,
be featured in the tournament.
SAILING
The Michigan sailing club traveled to Annapolis this past weekend to
participate in the Trux Umsted Memorial Regata. Twenty-one schools com-
peted in the regatta, ranging from Stanford in the West to Boston University
in the East.
With only two hours of practice going into the regatta and faced with ad-,
verse weather conditions, Michigan battled to finish tenth overall. Tufts won
the regatta with 245 points followed by the Naval Academy and Boston
University. LACROSSE
With the score tied 1-1, the Michigan lacrosse club scored 11 straight
goals, overpowering the Southern Ohio Lax Club, 15-4, in Cincinnati.
Matt Dawe led the scoring with two goals and four assists followed by Al
Clavell who contributed two goals and two assists.
Jay Jehle and Ed Anderson chipped in with three goals apiece, while Bill
Kalbfleish added one goal and two assists.
The Club Sports Roundup, which will appear in the Daily each
Tuesday, relates briefly the activities of Michigan's club sports teams
during the previous week. This week's information was compiled by;
Daily sports writer Alan Goldstein.
