Angelo Robinson each scored 18 points
as the unheralded Utes, seeded 10th in
the West, outplayed the favored Bruins,

fora the final time with five minutes
remaining, and the Utes then went in a
delay game, forcing UCLA to foul.

give Utah a 60-55 lead with 1:50
remaining. Nigel Miguel subsequently
hit two free throws for the Bruins,
reducing the deficit to three points.
MANNION THEN threw an inbounds
pass three-quarters of the length of the.
court to a wide-open Williams, whose
slam with 1:16 remaining put Utah on
top again by five points.
After a free throw by Utah center
Chris Winans and a rebound basket by
UCLA guard Ralph Jackson, Mannion
converted two more free throws with
24 seconds to go'for a 65-59 lead. Secon-
ds later, Mannion batted a loose ball out

49 victory over Washington State
yesterday in the second round of the

THE 7-FOOT-4 Sampson, despite
scoring only two points in the second
half, was instrumental in Virginia's
ability to hold off a Washington State
rally. The Cougars trailed by as much
as eight points in the first half and were
down 30-25 at intermission but pulled in-
to a tie just a minute into the second
half.
With 9:18 left in the game, Sampson
grabbed a rebound and fed guard Ricky
Stokes for a fast-break basket that put

went toward center court and guard
Othell Wilson was off for another fast-
break basket, giving Virginia a six-

Finally, after the Cougars had drawn
into another tie, Sampson again
blocked a shot to Wilson, who scored on
the other end, was fouled and made the
free throw to account for a 45-40 advan-
tage with 5:59 left.

Michael Jordan for the ball during the first half of yesterday's Eastern Regional

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alvin Rober-
tson scored 26 points and had six steals
as ninth-ranked Arkansas came back
after blowing a 10-point second-half
lead to down Purdue 78-68 in the second
round of the NCAA Mideast Regional
basketball tournament yesterday.
The victory sends the Razorbacks in-
to the regional semi-finals at Knoxville,
Tenn., against the winner of today's
Louisville-Tennessee game.
ARKANSAS, 26-3, appeared to have
the Boilermakers on the ropes with a
pressing defense that produced steals
and turnovers and enabled the Hogs to
build a 42-31 lead with 17:34 to play.
But, Purdue, finishing 21-9, fought
back to cut the lead to 48-47 as Jim
Rowinski and Jim Bullock each scored
six points. The Boilermakers took their
first lead since the opening minutes on
two free throws by Steve Reid that
made it 49-48 with 10 minutes to play.
Purdue then built a 53-48 lead on a lay-
up by Greg Eifert and two more free
throws by Reid before Arkansas came
back to win behind a spurt keyed by
Darrell Walker and Robertson.
Ricky Norton's two free throws with
4:22 to play put the Hogs ahead to stay
at 59-57. Walker had five points and
Robertson four in the comeback that
deadlocked it at 57.
Walker, a second-team All-
American, finished with 22 points and
Joe Kleine added 12 for Arkansas, ap-
pearing in the NCAA tourney for the
seventh year in a row.
Russell Cross, playing despite an
ailing back, led the Boilermakers with

22 points. Rowinski, Bullock and Reid
each had 12 points.
Kentucky 57,
Ohio University 40
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Melvin Turpin
and Dirk Minniefield sparked a second-
half spurt that gave 12th-ranked Ken-
tucky a 12-point lead as the Wildcats
downed Ohio University 57-40 in the
second round of the NCAA Mideast
Regional basketball tournament
yesterday.
The victory, snapping a three-game
NCAA losing streak for the five-time
national champion Wildcats, sends
Kentucky into next week's regional
semi-finals at Knoxville, Tenn., against
the winner of today's Indiana-
Oklahoma contest.
OHIO, the Mid-American Conference
tournament champion, used a slow
tempo to stay with the heavily favored
Wildcats most of the day.
Kentucky was leading 27-23 with 13:50
to play when the Wildcats went on an 11-
3 run for a 12-point lead. Turpin had five
points in that spree and Minniefield ad-
ded four and also contributed a lob pass
that freshman Kenny Walker laid in for
the other basket.
Ohio, finishing 23-9, never was able to
come within eight the rest of the game,
and Kentucky never led by more than
12 until scoring the final eight points of
the game in the last minute to provide
the 17-point margin of victory.
MINNIEFIELD LED Kentucky, 22-7,
with 16 points and Turpin contributed
14.

Top-ranked
HOUSTON (AP)-The No. 1 Houston

a 60-50 NCAA Midwest Regional
second-round victory over the
Terrapins.
Houston will meet the winner of
today's Georgetown-Memphis State
game in the Midwest semifinals next

tries and made clutch free throws in the
second half as the Cougars slowed the
game down themselves in the cat-and-
mouse affair.

Olajuwon scored 12 points before he got
into foul trouble and freshman guard
Alvin Franklin made four .of six free
throws.

nament because of a campus incident.

victory and boosted the Cougars,
record to 28-2 for the season.

on the Cougars to start the game.
Maryland led by as many as five
points before Young hit four straight
buckets to give the Cougars a 26-24 lead
at intermission.

HOUSTON (AP) - No. 13 Villanova,
emerging from a late-season swoon,
relied on the inside-outside performan-
ces of John Pinone and Dwayne Mc-
Clain to finally subdue up-start Lamar
60-58 yesterday in a second-round game
of the NCAA Midwest Regionalbasket-
ball tournament.
The Wildcats, 23-7, hit their first eight
shots of the game and forced the Car-
dinals to shoot over a tight 2-3 zone
defense.

late surge, hitting the last eight points
of the game before yielding to the Wild-
cats, who advanced to the Midwest
Regional semifinals Thursday night in
Kansas City, Mo., against the winner of
today's game between Iowa and
Missouri.
Villanova, which had lost three of its
last four games coming into the tour-
nament, was led by Pinone with 15 poin-
ts and McClain, who drove through
Lamar's defense for 14 poin.ts.
Tom Sewell, recovering from a ham-
string injury, scored 16 points for the
Cardinals and Kenneth Perkins led a
late second half spurt to finish with 19
points.
The Wildcats built a 56-41 lead with
seven minutes to play in ending theG
outmanned Cardinals' season.

Stetson snaps Batsmen 's streak

Special to the Daily
WINTER PARK, Fla.-The latest hurricane to hit Florida,
the Michigan baseball team, broke up Friday night and
headed North yesterday.
The Wolverines' ten-game winning streak was broken by
Stetson, 10-6 on Friday before the squad closed out their
spring trip with a 6-5 victory over Rollins yesterday after-
noon to put their record at 11-1, the team's best start since
1909.
THE WOLVERINES left 12 men stranded in their loss to
Stetson, including three in each of the last three innings.
Michigan hurlers Gary Wayne and Dan Disher gave up nine
walks between them. But despite these problems, Michigan
still might have come home with a clean record if it had not
been for five unearned runs tallied by Stetson in the fourth
inning following an error by first baseman Ken Hayward.
An 8-2 deficit was too much for the comeback-oriented
Wolverines to overcome and despite four singles and two
RBI's by shortstop Barry Larkin. Michigan found itself on
