Duke 76, St. John's 72
ATLANTA (AP) - Robert
Brickey put in a rebound with 32
seconds left to break a tie and added
two free throws with nine seconds
remaining Sunday, giving No. 15
Duke a 76-72 victory over St.
0 John's in the NCAA East Regional.
Brickey, who led the Blue Devils
with 22 points, helped Duke rally
from a nine-point second half deficit.
He rebounded a miss from Alaa Ab-
delnaby and layed the ball in to break
a 72-72 tie. After Boo Harvey of St.
John's missed a shot with 15
seconds left, Brickey was fouled and
added the clinching points.
Duke, the No. 3 seed, fell behind
51-42 early in the second half on a
19-6 run by St. John's (24-10) as
Harvey scored seven points in the
spurt.
Duke, however, came back from
a 68-61 deficit with 6:35 left as the
sixth-seeded Redmen's Malik Sealy
scored his team's last basket from
the field and the Blue Devils
outscored the losers 15-4 the rest of
the way..
Duke gained its first tie at 70
with 3:39 left on a short jumper by
Phil Henderson and went ahead 49
seconds later on another Henderson
jumper. Harvey then tied it at 72
with two free throws with 1:06 left..
Connecticut 74, California 54
HARTFORD (AP) - The Uni-
versity of Connecticut, spurned by a
home-state crowd, used an early 17-0
run and 16 steals to beat California
74-54 Saturday at the Hartford Civic
Center.
Chris Smith led UConn with 24
points, while Roy Fisher had 17 for
California.
Connecticut (30-5), ranked third
in the nation, will play No. 17
Clemson (26-8) on Thursday in East
Rutherford, N.J.
After scoring the opening basket,
California (22-10) panicked against
UConn's potent press and fell behind
17-2. The Golden Bears didn't make
a serious challenge after that, never
coming closer than 12 points in the
second half.
The Golden Bears, who averaged
13 turnovers per game this season,
had nine during that early UConn
spurt and finished the game with 28.
The Huskies also had four of their
thefts during the opening run.

Abdelnaby added 17 points for
Duke and Henderson had 13. Sealy
led St. John's with 19 and Harvey
had 17.
Duke, which has made it to the
Final Four three of the last four
years, took a 36-32 halftime lead as
Brickey led the Blue Devils with 11
points.
Duke, an at-large choice from the
Atlantic Coast Conference and 81-46
winner over Richmond in the first
round, got four points from Brickey
in a 10-2 run to take 16-8 lead with
14:23 left before halftime.
St. John's, which beat Temple
81-65 in the first round, came back
with Sealy scoring 11 points to pull
within 36-32 at the half. Harvey, the
Redmen's second leading scorer,
went scoreless until hitting a three-
point basket 3:08 before inter-
mission, his only points of the first
20 minutes.
Duke became the fourth Atlantic
Coast Conference school team to
reach this year's final 16. The Big
Ten and ACC both had four teams in
last year's final 16.

to the East Regional semifinals at
East Rutherford, N.J., for a game
Thursday against UCLA, who beat

miles from Hartford, and the Huskies
played 10 games a the Civic Center
this season.
"Being at home is a tremendous
advantage," California coach Lou
Campanelli said. "Whether the press
would be as effective on a neutral
floor in a neutral setting is another
thing."
UCLA 71, Kansas 70
ATLANTA (AP)-UCLA, which
used to win the tournament all the
time under John Wooden, made the
"Sweet Sixteen" for the first time in
a decade by beating Kansas, 71-70.
The loss knocked the powerful Big
Eight, which had three No.1 teams
this season, out of the tournament.
Freshman Tracy Murray sunk
two shots from the charity stripe
with nine seconds left enabling the
Bruins to enter the Final 16 for the
first time since losing the title game
in 1980. The 1980 squad was led by
a young forward named Kiki
Vandeweghe and a peripatetic coach
named Larry Brown.

Xavier 74, Georgetown 71
Indianapolis (AP) - Everybody
practices shooting. Unheralded Xav-
ier practices fouling, and getting
away with it. They did it masterfully
Sunday in a 74-71 victory over
eighth-ranked Georgetown.
"We didn't want to let them tie
the game with a 3-pointer," said
Xavier coach Pete Gillen, who twice
told his players to foul the Hoyas in
the closing seconds of their NCAA
Midwest Regional game.
It paid off. The Hoyas' David
Edwards twice missed the front end
of one-on-one free-throw opportun-
ities in the final eight seconds. That
preserved the victory.
The Musketeers (28-4), ranked
25th and seeded sixth, will play 10th
seeded Texas on Thursday in Dallas.
e Texas (22-8), edged 10th-ranked
Purdue 73-72 in Sunday's other
second-round game at the Hoosier
Dome.
Xavier, which had won only one
game in six previous NCAA tourn-

opening round.
ound. "We practiced giving a foul all
week," Gillen said. "We took a
chance, but we didn't want to give
them a shot to tie it."
Both fouls against Edwards in the
closing seconds were called on guard
Jamal Walker, whose two free
throws with 23 seconds to go gave
the Musketeers their three-point lead.
"It was just practice and con-
centration," said Walker, who had 15
points and a game-high nine assists.
"I was thinking, 'Just go out, make
those two and get back on defense."'
{ The Xavier defensive effort -
including the gamble that the two
fouls against Walker would not be
called intentional, thus giving
possession of the ball back to
s" Georgetown - shut off a furious
second-half rally by the Hoyas.
Derek Strong led the Musketeers
with 19 points and 12 rebounds.
The Ohio school, never trailing
after the opening moments of the
game, built an 18-point lead late in
the first half, then fell victim to
Georgetown's press in the second.
The Hoyas used outside shooting by

David Edwards and Mark Tillmon
and slowly cut the Xavier lead,
eventually tying the game at 68 on a
3-point goal by Edwards with 3:18
to go.
There was one more tie before a
rebound basket by freshman Aaron,
Williams put Xavier ahead 72-70
with 1:35 to go. Edwards, who led
Georgetown with 19 points, hit one
of two free throws after that.
"It was obvious we got in a hole.
Give Xavier credit for that,"
Georgetown coach John Thompson
said. "Their pressure bothered us and
got us out of our game plan.
"We're not the best passing team
in America, and once we got behind,
we had to make the game ragged and
scramble to get back in. We did that
and had a chance to win," Thompson
said.
"We were not a pressure team
this year, but the best pressure
defense we played all year was in the.

AUSTIN, Texas- Rick Fox hit
a short bank shot with one second

Davis' three-point play with 39
seconds left. King Rice's foul shot
tied it with 10 seconds to go and he
missed his second free throw, but the
ball glanced off Oklahoma's Jackie
Jones and went out of bounds with
eight seconds remaining.
After North Carolina called time,
Fox took a pass from Hubert Davis
on the right wing, drove past
Smokey McCovery and Jones and
laid the shot off the backboard.
