Georgetown

rom

SEATTLE (AP) - Georgetown's
depth paid off in its first NCAA basket-
ball championship last night as fresh-
man reserves Reggie Williams and
Michael Graham led the way in a 84-75
victory over Houston.
The dream matchup between the two
7-foot All-Americans, Georgetown's
Patrick Ewing and Houston's Akeem
Olajuwon, was never a key. Both were
in foul trouble much of the game and
played cautiously.
IT MARKED the second straight
time Coach Guy Lewis' Cougars lost the
championship game, having been upset
by North Carolina State 54-52 last year.
Houston also reached the Final Four in
1967, '68 and '82.
Georgetown's coach, John Thom-
pson, and his playes embraced joyfully
as the final seconds ticked off, the
memories of a runner-up finish to Nor-
th Carolina in the 1982 final wiped
away. But it was sorrow for Houston.
Olajuwon and his Cougar teammates
sobbed on the bench as time ran out.
Williams, a slender 6-7 swingman,
scored 13 of his 19 points in the secon-
d half and Graham, a burly 6-9 forward,
got 10 of his 14 points in the second half.
The freshmen combined for 11 of
Georgetown's 15 field goals after in-
termission.
GEORGETOWN had three other
players in double figures, led by David
Wingate with 16 points. Most of his eight
second half points came on free throws
Mactaggart
paves way
for netters
By RANDY SCHWARTZ
Despite her team's 3-1 Big Ten record
and a personal 4-0 mark in the con-
ference, the women's tennis team's
number-one player Mary Mactaggart,
is still not satisfied.
"I still think I can use a little more
work . . . hopefully I'll keep im-
proving," she said after her two
weekend victories.
AGAINST PURDUE on Friday, Mac-
taggart dispatched her opponent Molly
McGrath, 6-2, 6-2, as the Wolverines
thumped the Boilermakers, 6-3. Juliet
Naft, Paula Reichert and Karen Milc-
zarski also picked up singles victories
while Mactaggart and Jane Silfen, and
Milczarski and Rayne Lamey notched
doubles victories.
On Saturday, the Wolverines proved
at least one Michigan team could win in
Champaign as they swamped the
Fighting Illini, 6-3.

victory that "the bottom line is that my
kids graduate."
"I don't have a problem with people
criticizing us," he said. "I'm not
concerned with my critics."
"I'm elated about winning the
championship," Thompson continued,
"but the hardest thing is to get here,
ked up his Anyone can win one game."

down the stretch. Michael Jackson had
11 points and Ewing added 10.
Sophomore guard Alvin Franklin,
who kept Houston in the game after the
intermission, was the top scorer with 21
points, followed by Michael Young with
18 and Olajuwon with 15.
The depth of the Hoyas, who finished
34-3, was never more evident than in the
final 7:35 of the first half. Ewing was on
the bench with, two fouls, while
Olajuwon picked up his second and

tou l out less than a minute into the
second half, and played tentatively the
rest of the way.
IN WINNING their 11th straight
game and 21st of the last 22, the second-
ranked Hoyas culminated the
rebuilding program that Thompson
began when he took over a 3-23 club in
1972. The former backup center for the
Boston Celtics has been criticized for
some of his tactics on and off the court,
but he said after the championship

For a while, it looked as if it would be
Houston winning that elusive "one
game."
The Cougars, 32-5, hit their first seven
shots, including three field goals by
Young and two by Reid Gettys to take a
14-6 lead. But Georgetown came back to
tie it at 14 and again at 16 before taking
the lead for good.

'M'ca~g
By PAUL HELGREN
Tim McCormick and Eric Turner
both said yesterday that they still may
enter this year's NBA draft and thus
forego a final year at Michigan.
McCormick is a senior with junior
eligibility. Turner is a junior.
"I HAVEN'T really decided yet,"
said McCormick, who was named the
Most Valuable Player in Michigan's NIT
championship drive. "I have a lot of op-
tions open to me. I'm gonna wait a week
or so and then sit down with my parents

ers may
and then decide. I'm not really worried
about it right now."
The 6-11 power forward added that he
"really hasn't thought much" about the
NBA draft, which takes place in June.
McCormick, who will graduate this
summer, originally planned to do
graduate work in communications this
fall and play basketball. But his ap-
plication was rejected. He holds a 3.172
grade point average in general studies
and made the first team All-Academic
Big Ten team. If he is not eventually

accepted into the graduate school at
Michigan, he will not return to the team
next year.
"I WOULDN'T come back as an un
dergrad," McCormick said. "I'll have
my degree by then so I don't see any
reason to come back and just take un-
dergraduate courses."
Turner said that he, too, is

vacillating. He has heard from a few
NBA teams but has not hired an agent.
"Right now I'm looking at the other
underclassmen that are coming out,"
said the 6-3 guard. If enough under-
classmen stay in school and if some
team expresses strong interest in the
passing wizard, E.T. may indeed go
pro.
"I'll have a better idea what I'm
doing in about a week," he said.
j MICHIGAN coach Bill Frieder was
skeptical that either player would
leave.
"No, I don't think he (Turner) will
go," said Frieder. "I have never talked
to Eric Turner about the pros.
"I have never talked to Tim McCor-
mick about it. I think they'll both be
back. (McCormick) has a lot of options.
He has six-to-eight options. I'm looking
forward to him being back, too."
