SOUTH BEND (AP) - Kenny
Smith's b -sket with three seconds
remaining after a North Carolina
recovery helped the seventh-ranked
Tar Heels score a 60-58 victory yester-
day over Notre Dame in second-round
play of the NCAA Southeast Regional
basketball tournament.
The Irish had been in a stall more

,than a minute when star freshman
David Rivers lost the ball and Curtis
Hunter picked it up and passed to Smith
as he broke downcourt.
There was confusion on both sides as
to how the ball got loose. Smith said he
saw Rivers bounce it off his leg, and
Rivers said the.ball was tipped by a Tar
Heel player.

NOTRE DAME opted for taking the
last shot after going into the stall.
Smith, who scored 12 points in the
game, then deflected the inbounds toss
to spoil Notre Dame's last hope of tying
the contest.
Brad Daugherty scored 18 points high
for the game to lead the Tar Heels,
while Rivers scored 15 for Notre Dame.
North Carolina will meet Auburn in
the next round of the Southeast
Regional tournament. - _
The Irish battled back from a six-
point deficit to tie at 56 on a pair of free
throws by Donald Royal, but Daugherty
returned to the lineup with four fouls.
and North Carolina regained the lead
on his two free throws. Rivers tied the
game again at 58 with two minutes left,
but Royal missed a free throw seconds.

Georgetown 63, Temple 46
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Using a
fierce inside game, Michael Jackson's
14 points and a defense that shut down
Temple's two leading scorers, top-
ranked Georgetown advanced to the
round of 16 of the NCAA basketball
tournament with a 63-46 victory yester-
day.
The second-round triumph in the East
Regional moves the defending cham-
pion Hoyas into a game Thursday in
Providence, R.I., against 14th ranked
Loyola, Ill.
Leading 31-23 at halftime, the Hoyas
scored the first seven points of the
second half, four by Jackson, to take a
38-23 advantage before Temple finally
scored with 14:57 left in the game.
The Owls closed the gap back to eight
at 48-40 with 5:48 remaining, but
Georgetown pulled away with its foul
shooting and strong running game.
The Hoyas boosted their record to 32-
2 with their 14th consecutive victory,
while Temple ended its season at 25-6.
Reggie Williamsadded 13 points and
Patrick Ewing and David Wingate 12
each to Georgetown's balanced attack.
Guard Nate Blackwell had 15 points to
lead Temple, which got a total of just 13
points from forwards Granger Hall and
Charles Rayne, who had combined for
31.2 points per game this season.
St. ,John's 68, Arkansas 65
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Chris Mullin
scored 26 points and third-ranked St.

comeback to defeat the Razorbacks 68-
65 yesterday in the NCAA West Regional
basketball tournament.
The Redmen led by as many as eight
pointsthroughout the game, the last
time at 60-52 on two free throws by
Mullin with 4:23 left in the game.
Arkansas center Joe Kleine scored six
points during a two-minute stretch to
draw the Razorbacks, 22-13, within 62-
61 with 1:32 remaining.
BUT SIX free throws by St. John's
and three fine defensive plays helped
protect the lead. Guard Mike Moses
canned two free throws to pad the
Redmen's lead to 64-61, and St. John's
center Bill Wennington then blocked a
shot by William Mills. Mullin followed
with two free throws to make it 66-61
with 36 seconds left, and Wennington
subsequently stole a pass.
After Kleine's turn-around jumper
made it 66-63, Moses stole an Arkansas
pass, was fouled and made both foul
shots to help secure the victory.
St. John's scored eight straight
points early in the game, capped by
Mullin's two free throws following a
technical foul assessed against
Arkansas Coach Eddie Sutton, to go
ahead 14-7. The Razorbacks pulled
within two points, but two straight
baskets by Mullin made it 30-26 late in
the half and the Redmen carried a 32-26
lead at intermission.

building a 51-32 lead at 14:48 on a hook
shot by 6-10 senior center Willie Sim-
mons.

minutes, stealing the ball and forcing

the Bulldogs of the victory.
Sophomore forward Dennis Hopson
led the Buckeyes with 20 points and
grabbed nine rebounds. Taylor added
18 points for Ohio State.

Blue stinks vs. FD U .
0.,hopes to smell better vs. Cats,
By TIM MAKINEN
DAYTON, Ohio
Even if the Michigan basketball team had committed a cardinal sin of
looking past first round opponent Fairleigh Dickinson, the Wolverines cer-
tainly should not look back.
Michigan stunk Friday night. The Wolverines nearly provided the hostile
Dayton crowd with the "upset of the year" as they fumbled and floundered
against the sixty-third seeded Knights before ultimately winning;59-55.
Although the Wolverines deny taking Fairleigh Dickinson too lightly, they
hardly looked prepared for the contest.
"That was a good scrappy ballclub," said Michigan's Roy Tarpley. "We
never underestimated them, but they shocked us the way they came out."
Little went right for the Blue, which had best forget the "nightmare" of
Friday. Michigan connected only 31 percent of its first half shots, and a hail
of boos saluted the players everytime the Wolverine band struck up "The
Victors."
The Michigan guards were especially foul. Gary Grant and Antoine Joubert
made all of four field goals in 17 attempts. A can of Right Guard, perhaps,
would have been just as effective in the Michigan backcourt. At least it
would have covered"up the stench.
"It was scary, aohard feeling to describe," said Butch Wade. "We were down by
ten and chasing them all over the court. You see no light at the end of the
tunnel."
Michigan actually may have gotten some breaks in the game. Tarpley was
tagged with his fourth foul at 17:03 of the second half, Wade earned his fourth
at 12:36 and Joubert was tabbed with four some minutes later. None of those
players fouled out, while four of Fairleigh Dickinson's starters received
early exits because of court infractions.
The referees, in fact, demonstrated great leniency, maybe sympathy, in
their calls on the Wolverines. Near the end of the first half, Tarpley twice fell
over Fairleigh Dickinson's Fred Collins, but no calls were signalled. Garde
Thompson then nearly mugged Collins, yet again the ref's whistle was silent.
One reporter said he counted at least 12 fouls on Michigan that were not
called. "You should quote yourself on that," said obviously perturbed FDU
coach Tom Green.
Green also was upset with the lack of respect giyen the Knights coming in-
to the game. In particular, he set his sights on ESPN commentator Dick
Vitale.
"It might seem like it was impossible (to beat Michigan) to you," said
Green, "but for eleven players in that lockerroom it wasn't impossible. We
had 21 wins coming into the tournament, and I think we belonged here.
"NCAA format has been here for quite'a while. Now if Mr. Vitale wishes to
ride on the bandwagon and try to change the format, that is up to him. But
don't penalize 18,19, and 20-year-old men who have worked very very hard to
be here."
Despite the loss, Fairleigh Dickinson did come out of the game smelling
like a rose. The New Jersey school proved it could hold its own against the
much bigger Wolverines, and that it did deserve its entry in the tournament.
Michigan, on the other hand, left nothing but a queasy expression on the
faces of its fans, and a more bitter look on the faces of those spectators
hoping to see the number two ranked Wolverines tumble.
"I hope these kids are smart enough and mature enough to realize how
close they were to busing home (Friday night)," said Michigan coach Bill
Frieder.
If it's any consolation to Frieder and his troops, it would be difficult ever
again to play as poorly as the Wolverines did. Friday. Now Michigan must
get that horrid outing out of its system and concentrate on only the games
ahead.
A dreary bus ride home from Dayton is not the way to end a season like
this.

points as the No. 4 Sooners held off Iginois State 75-69 in the
second round of the NCAA Midwest Regional basketball
tournament yesterday.

WILCHER WON his event, the 110-meter high hurdles, in
13.82 seconds, a very fast time this early in the season.
Brewster, a junior from London, Ontario, finished fourth in
the 5,000-meter run, but his 13:54.82 time was still good
enough to earn a berth in the championships.
Senior Bill Brady also captured a fourth-place finish, in the
10,000 meter run. His time was 30:05.99.
Michigan's relay teams also performed well. The 4 x 400
meter team of Omar Davidson, Rick Swilley, Bob Boynton
and Todd Steverson ran a 3:09.89 race to finish fourth and the
4 x 800 meter team also came in fourth at 7:29.64.
Some Wolverines competed in Division II finals at the
event. Sophomore Dan Smith finished fourth in the 800-mete
run at 1: 52.99, freshman Calvin Goodson leaped to sixth in the
triple jump with a distance of 45'8" and Chris Fitzpatrick
wound up seventh with a 54.61 time in the 400-meter inter-
mediate hurdles.

and cocaine possession charges after deliberating more than
three days.

on one count of conspiracy to smuggle cocaine.
