Tigers advance to

Final Four

Ga.

Tech ousted, 60-54

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Sophomore Reggie Williams
hit four clutch free throws as top-ranked Georgetown, with
All-American Pat Ewing on the bench much of the second
half, hung on for a 60-54 victory over No. 6 Georgia Tech
yesterday and earned its third trip to the NCAA Final Four in
four years.
The Hoyas' 16th straight victory gave them the East
Regional championship and kept them on track to become
the first team to repeat as national champions since UCLA in
1972 and 1973.
EWING, WHO sat out 12 minutes of the second half with
four fouls. still led the Hovas with 14 points, all but two in the
first half. Williams and Bill Martin added 12 each. Seven-foot
John Salley scored 12 of his 15 points in the second half to lead
the Yellow Jackets, while Price and Dalyrmple each added
13.
Georgetown, 34-2, survived because of the poor shooting of
Georgia Tech guard Mark Price, who was a 49 percent
shooter during the season but hit only three of 15 from the
outside against the Hoyas.
Georgia Tech, 27-8, overcame a four-point deficit midway
through the game and fought the Hoyas down to the end.
Reserves Ralph Dalton, filling in for the foul-plagued Ewing,
and Horace Broadnax combined for nine points as
Georgetown pulled to a 51-46 lead.
AFTER GEORGIA Tech's Bruce Dalrymple hit a jumper
with 3:45 remaining to cut the Hoya lead to 52-50, Williams
tossed in two free throws with 1:12 left. Scott Petway scored
his only points of the game on a jumper to make it 54-52 with
55 seconds remaining, but Williams then connected on
another pair of free throws to make in a four-point
Georgetown lead again.
Price finally hit a long jumper to make it 56-54, but Dalton
then added two free throws and Broadnax ended it with a
driving layup at the buzzer.
Georgetown will meet the winner of today's West Regional
championship between St. John's and North Carolina State
next Saturday in Lexington, Ky.

Memphis St. 63, Okla. 61
DALLAS (AP) - Guard Andre Turner scored four points in
the final 33 seconds and All-American Keith Lee had 23 points
yesterday to give No. 5 Memphis State a 63-61 NCAA Midwest
Regional basketball championship victory over fourth-
ranked Oklahoma and the Tigers' first appearance in the
Final Four since 1973.
Lee hit a basket and canned four free throws in the final 90
seconds and Turner, the hero of Thursday night's victory
over Boston College, made a layup against the Sooner press
then hit two free throws with 23 seconds to go.
OKLAHOMA, the nation's highest scoring team which was
held to its lowest point total of the season, had one last chance
after Turner missed a free throw with eight seconds to play .
Anthony Bowie's 24-footer at the buzzer hit the back of the
rim and bounced away.
The winner of today's.North Carolina-Villanova Southeast
Regional Final in Birmingham, Ala. will face Memphis State
next Saturday in Lexington, Ky.
Oklahoma, the Big Eight champions who finished with a
31-6 record, were led by Darryl Kennedy with 16 points. All-
American Wayman Tisdale scored 11.
THE TIGERS, Metro Conference Champions and 31-3, got
12 points from Turner.
Turner hit two jump shots to put Memphis State ahead 53-
47 but Kennedy brought the Sooners charging back. He
scored four straight baskets and scored with 13 seconds to
play to bring Oklahoma within two points.
Lee got into foul trouble again just like he had in the three
other playoff games. He got his foul just 17 seconds into
the game and sat down with his fourth foul at 11:48 in the
second half. He came back with five minutes to play.
Turner hit a 17-foot jumper at the buzzer to tie the game 33-
33 at halftime. Lee had 13 points in the, first half, while
Tisdale had only five in the battle of All-Americans.

Beecher wins O T thrl

By MARK KOVINSKY
It took two overtimes and several years off the lives of many
at Crisler Arena yesterday, but number-one ranked Flint
Beecher came away with a last second 74-72 win over third-
ranked Saginaw Buena Vista to claim the Class B High School
thampionship for the first time since 1976.
With no time on the clock at the end of the second three-
itninute overtime, Flint senior Warren Walker-Bey took the
-hero's role as he drilled home a shot from the right corner.
only seconds before, Walker-Bey, who finished with 15 poin-
ts, had a potential tie-breaking layup rejected by Saginaw
senior Ricky Beachum who came from nowhere. When the
block sailed out of bounds, it gave Walker-Bey a second
chance.
DOWN 47-33 late in the third quarter, the much smaller
Knights picked up the pace on the Bucs and closed the gap to
50-47 by the end of the quarter.
Having breathed life again, Buena Vista stayed close in
The fourth quarter, trading hoops with Beecher. Mark Macon,
6-3 sophomore, did most of the Knights' scoring as he hit
a game-high 30 points, 24 of which came after the inter-
*mission.

Macon's biggest contribution came with 15 second
regulation. With his team trailing 63-61, Macon let g
unbelievable 20-foot turnaround jumper that found the
of the net and sent the affair into OT.
IN THE first overtime, Macon was again the sta
nailed the tying shot with one minute remaining.
Throughout the game, Flint Beecher's Roy Marble

America team. The 6-6 senior capped his high schoo
with 25 points and dazzled the crowd with his incred
look passing ability as he dished out eight assists.
For Buena Vista (23-5), Christopher Coles came

48-36 victory over West Iron County in
the Class C championship game at
Crisler Arena last night.
dePorres, the number-one seed in the
tournament, lived up to its billing. The
Eagles became the first team in history

zo of an Detroit city championship, and the
bottom state championship in the same season.

Allen Park Inter-City
Baptist 70, Bridgman 60
Allen Park Inter-City Baptist was not
the quickest team in the Michigan Class
D basketball tournament. It wasn't the
tallest and it didn't have the deepest
bench either. But it was probably the
most patient, and its patience paid off
in the form of a state championship.
The Chargers defeated Bridgman, 70-
60, in the titular clash last night at
Crisler.
INTER-CITY'S slow, methodical of-
fense was successful in opening up
Brad Soucie (20 points) and Tracy

Fressel (10 points) for jumpers from
the corners. But it was Charger guard
Mark Kraatz who controlled the pace of
the game. When he wasn't stealing the
ball and going coast-to-coast for a
layup, which he did five times, he was
running Inter-City's delay.
"We're not very good at bringing a
team out of the four corners,' said
Bridgman coach Douglas Hendricks.
"We've had trouble doing that all
season, and that was against human
beings. But with Kraatz out there...
forget-it." "
The Chargers led 15-10 after one
quarter, but turned the game into a
route in the second frame. Kraatz
scored his team's final eight points,
mostly on layups, to pit Inter-City to a
33-18 intermission lead.
Bridgman played the Chargers
evenly in the third quarter. The Bees
began to get a few second-chance
buckets after having only two offensive
rebounds in the first 16 minutes. But
Brad Soucie found his spot, hitting for
eight points from the left corner.

SPOR TS OF THE DAILY:
Blue Jays hold on, nip Tigers, 3-2

LAKELAND, Fla. (UPI) - Lloyd Moseby
and Willie Upshaw drove in runs in the
first inning yesterday as the Toronto
Blue Jays defeated the Detroit Tigers 3-
P2.

handing the Tigers (9-6) their second
consecutive loss.
TORONTO scored off Tiger starter
Walt Terrell (3-1) and held on in the
-game which took one hour and 58
minutes. It was the shortest game of the
spring for the Tigers, coming one day
'after their longest game.
Tiger shortstop Alan Trammel
homered in the fourth inning to cut
Toronto's lead to 2-1. The Blue Jays
scored an unearned run in the sixth in-
ning off Tiger reliever Sid Monge .

ternoon.
Kentucky considering
Hall's successor
DENVER (AP)-Joe B. Hall, retiring
after 13 seasons at the University of
Kentucky, said yesterday he was con-
fident the school would "make a wise
decision and choose a good coach" to
head one of college basketball's
toughest programs.
"I don't have a blueprint for the right
coach. You can have success in many
shapes and forms," the 56-year-old Hall

told reporters in his hotel room.
THE LIST of rumored successors
was impressive even before Hall an-
nounced his retirement.
They included Pat Riley, coach of the
NBA's Los Angeles Lakers, college
coaches Lee Rose of South Florida and
Eddie Sutton of Arkansas, and Hall's
assistant, Lake Kelly.
Hall announced his retirement
Friday night, shortly after No. 3 St.
John's improved its record to 30-3 by
pounding the Wildcats 86-70 in the semi-
finals of the NCAA West Regional tour-
nament. Kentucky finished at 18-13.
HALL SAID he had an emotional
meeting with his players afterward to
discuss his decision to step down.
"It was very touching. I couldn't do
much talking, and I don't think the
players could, either. They all came up

to my room afterward, but it was still
hard to get words out," Hall said.
