Allen Rayhorn, held in check through
most of the second half by a tough Ball
State zone defense, sank two free
throws with 32 seconds remaining in
overtime to lead Northern Illinois to a
79-75 victory over the Cardinals in the
championship game of the Mid-
American Conference tournament last
night in Crisler Arena.
After he was fouled by Ball State's
Rick Hampton, Rayhorn connected on
both ends of the one-and-one to give his
team an insurmountable 77-71 lead.
Ball State missed its next shot and Nor-
thern Illinois' Tim Dillon then in-
creased the lead to eight with a six-foot
jumper from the lane. The Cardinals'
C.C. Fullove hit two jump shots of his
own to close the gap to its final, three-
point margin.
RAYHORN, WHO scored 15 of his
team-leading 23 points in the first half,
believed his team's discipline was the
deciding factor in the game's outcome.
'We just kept taking our time and
worked for good shots," he said. In the
overtime period,' Rayhorn and the
Huskies scored 21 points, with only two
shots coming from outside of 15 feet.
Ball State, on the other hand, hurried
its shots in the additional stanza. Its
players launched numerous jum-
pers-most of them unsuccessful- in-
stead of working the ball inside to

"I was pretty confident since I had
won it last year," said Bruce, a native

realized I could catch the Ohio State
guy (George Nicholas). I won it in the
last five yards. "
The senior's second triumph came in
the 300-yard dash when he set a new .
school record of 30.04.
SHELBY Johnson took advantage of
his last chance to qualify for next

invitation to the national meet.

credited his team's defense with being
responsible for the victory, especially
the efforts of sophomore guard Hayes.
,The overall key had to be our defen-
se," said McDougal. "Leonard Hayes,
did a great job on Ray McCallum and
their (Ball State's) offense certainly
begins with him."
- McCallum, whose 21st birthday was
tarnished by the defeat, hit on only five
of 13 shots and finished the night with 14
points, less than half of the 30 he scored
in Friday night's semi-final victory
over Western Michigan.'

points and Scott added 16. Scott joined

Bowling Green State University's
Marcus Newbern sank four free throws
in the final 1:44 to ice the contest as the
Falcons held on to beat Western
Michigan, 86-83, in the consolation
game of the MAC tournament yester-
day at Crisler Arena.
Bowling Green was almost flawless
at the foul line,- sinking 26 of 30 attem-
pts, and Newbern pumped in 32 points,
21 in the second half.
"THIS WAS a typical MAC down-to-
the-wire game," said Falcon coach
John Weinert. "What we tried to do was
to isolate Marcus (Newbern) down low,
and he does that very well."
With two minutes left in the game and
the Falcons nursing a two-point lead, 5-
9 guard David Greer found Newbern
wide open under the basket for an easy
lay-up to give Bowling Green an 81-77
After a missed free throw by
Western's Mike Seberger, Newbern
grabbed the rebound and was fouled.
He made the foul !shots to put the
Falcons ahead by six, 83-77.
WESTERN'S Walker D. Russell
(brother of former U-M star Campy)
then hit a long jumper, but Bowling
Green stalled for more than a minute
and Newbern was finally fouled with
:35 remaining. His two free throws put
the Falcons up 85-79 and put the game
.out of reach.
Bronco forward Jasper McElroy led-
the losers with 31 points; Russell added
22, but only four of those came after in-

termission as the Bowling Green zone
defense forced Russell out of the Bron-
co offense.
At the start of the game Western
broke out to a quick 12-0 lead, but when
the Falcons finally decided to join in on
the scoring they did it with flaip, coun-
tering with nine unanswered points of
their own. From that point on, neither
team led by more than six. The Broncos
took a 40-39 halftime lead.
Bowling Green's David Jenkins
scored 21 points oo eight for 13 shooting
while Western shot a blistering 64 per-
cent from the field-in the loss. Newbern
and McElroy were named to the all-
tournament team.
Western Michigan finished its season
at 15-14. Bowling Green, still hoping for
a bid in the National Invitation Tour-
nament, now sports an 18-;11record.

Special to the Daily
IOWA CITY- The Iowa Hawkeyes
have a good chance of winning their
second straight Big Ten men's swim-
ming title. The Iowa squad, hosts for
this meet, finished the third day of the
four-day event with 453 points. Before
last night's action second-place Indiana
had 333 points, while Michigan was in
third with 280, and Wisconsin in fourth
with 262 points.-
The Hawkeye victory would end the
Hoosier's hopes of regaining the title
that Iowa snatched from them last year
after Indiana had, won 20 consecutive

men's swim titles.
WINNING FOR the Wolverines in the
100-yard breaststroke was Trip Gage at
:56.94, while Tom Ernsting came in

Michigan was Bruce Gemmell who took
the 400-yard individual medley (IM)
title in 3:57.96, and also placed fourth in
the 400-yard IM at 1:52.90.
The Blue tankers had done very well
in the'relay events, taking second in the
800-yard freestyle relay with a time of
6:41.13, a time which is good enough to
qualify them for the NCAA champion-
ships. Their 400-yard medley relay
team finished fourth at 3:22.16.
