By TIM MAKINEN
Hoy-as noun 1.: an intimidating, versatile force,
e.g., Georgetown's Patrick Ewing. 2.: team most
likely to capture NCAA basketball title in 1984-84
campaign.
While nothing is ever clearly defined in college
basketball, one thing is extremely likely--the
Georgetown Hoyas will be one of the four teams to
make it to Adolph Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ken-
tucky next March. Georgetown must be considered
the favorite to win it all.
No cage squad has snagged back-to-back national
championships since John Wooden's UCLA Bruins
pulled the trick in 1973. The defending champ Hoyas
appear ready to change that. With a bench as deep as
the Pacific Ocean, the imcomparable 7-0 Patrick
Ewing, and three other returning starters,
Georgetown will have to commit hari-kari not to be a
contender. The Hoyas even have Michael Jackson (a
6-1 junior guard). How can you beat it?
ONE CANNOT say enough about Ewing. The
senior center led the U.S. Olympic team to a gold
medal and has demonstrated a defensive style
reminescent of the NFL's Dick Butkus. Ewing
has even revitalized the t-shirt industry by making the un-
dergarment a permanent part of his jersey. Talk
about enterprising.
Front line counterpart Michael Graham, a cross
between Marvin Hagler and Uncle Fester, will miss
the season due to academic problems, but the Hoyas
are still the team to beat.
If any team has a chance at getting Georgetown, it
could be De Paul. Seniors Tyrone Corbin and Kenny
Patterson combine with sensational sophomore
Dallas Comegys to give the Blue Demons a force the
likes of which has not been seen in Chicago since the
Richard Daley era.
THE QUESTION remains as to whether first-year
mentor Joey Meyer can lead DePaul in the clutch.
Will Joey inherit his father's classic choking act in
the-early rounds of the NCAA tourney? A demanding
schedule could hamper DePaul's ranking during the
season.
Georgetown and DePaul aside, college hoops will
see two conferences, the Big Ten and the Atlantic
Coast Conference, exhibit the best all-around play. As
Michigan fans know, the Illinois Biting Illini have
four sharters back, including All-America candidates
Efrem Winters and Bruce Douglas. Those two can
break an opponent's will faster than you can say
"probation."
Bobby "I'll crack your wrist if you write anything
bad about me" Knight's Indiana Hoosiers also will
challenge for the top spot in the national rankings,
despite the addition of a 45-second shot clock which
will prevent Knight from employing his infamous
stall tactics. Olympic guard Steve Alford and 6-5
freshman Delray Brooks provide the Hoosiers with
one of the best backcourts in the nation.
IN THE ACC it should be a dogfight between Duke
and North Carolina State. No team should be counted
out of this basketball-mad conference, however. It
seems that ACC players are born with high tops on
their feet and, if you thought the Duke players were
also wearing diapers last year, you were pretty close
to the truth. That young Blue Devil squad has sur-
vived its growing pains and has matured into a

dynamite team. Led by junior sharpshooter Johnny
Dawkins, Duke should be on everyone's top ten list.
Lorenzo Charles and the N.C. State Wolfpack will
hound Duke for the conference title. Even if you
can't stand coach Jim Valvano's blabbering, you've
got to like a team whose top playmaker is a 5-7 senior
named "Spud" Webb.
No national preview would be complete without
mentioning a few of the big names in the game today.
Unquestionably, Oklahoma All-America, All-
Olympic, and All-Universe candidate Wayman
Tisdale will spread his magic again this season. The
6-9 junior averaged a blistering 27 points per game in
1983-84 and may be the best thing to come out of the
Sooner state since the completion of Interstate 70 in
1958. Look for Oklahoma to finish high.
ANOTHER Olympian, Chris Mullen, could spark
the St. John's Redmen to a hatchet job on Big East
opponents this season. The Redmen must contend
with conference rivals Georgetown and Syracuse so a
scalp-or-be-scalped situation may arise in the East.
Although his team may not be quite top ten caliber
pro scouts will want to stay in touch with Memphis
State senior Keith Lee. Lee should repeat his All-
America performance of last year while teaming up
with seven-footer William Bedford to create a truly
devastating inside duo for the Tigers.
Southern Methodist's 7-0 Jon Koncak could be the
center of attention in the Southwest Conference,
although Arkansas Joe Kleine may also try to grab

the spotlight. If you're not th
pians Koncak and Kleine, it's p
have been playing in the shad
center Akeem Olajuwon the 1
returning starters though, Kc
will step out and shine this sea
FINALLY, Kentucky will a
the nation. The Wildcats did 1
Turpin, and Dickey Beal to gr
it, after the way those guys c
semi-final against Georgetown
lucky to get a job cleaning s
Kentucky coach Joe B. Hall ir
the nation and 6-8 junior Kenn
his 12.8 scoring average.
DEPT. OF "WHAT ABOUT
Houston? With Akeem the
coach Guy Lewis will sleep fitful
UCLA and the West Coast
teams and years of the Bruins
Uclans will duke it out w
Washington but don't expect n
North Carolina? The Tar:
the 20th spot in the nation all
replace Michael Jordan and S
Nevada-Las Vegas? Some
dball squad is unstoppable. D
