Huggins. He has turned the
Cincinnati program around in his

c0aching Akron for five seasons.
0 ' A once proud program -
Qncinnati won consecutive national
titles in 1961-2 - has now stormed
back into the national scene, with
Huggins at the helm.
"A lot of players are afraid of
failing," Huggins said Monday, as
he has been all tournament long.
"We want kids who want to achieve
and work their tails off. Our guys
aren't afraid to dream a little. You
can't have insecure people, and I
don't think we have any."
What Huggins does have - aside
from the Ohio high school coaching
legacy of his father Charles - is a
strange blend of talented players.
Jones leads the juco crew from
the front court, averaging 18.2 points
per game and 7.1 rebounds per
game. Jones is only 6-foot-3, but that
doesn't matter in Huggins' Five Man
Open Post system.
"We want our guys to be the best
basketball players they can be, not
necessarily the best low-post or wing
players," Huggins said. "Con-
sequently, we teach our guys to play
different places on the floor."
Basically, that means they end up
playing all over the floor - from
end to end - trapping on defense

No Pun Intended i
attitude of champions
There is an aura now surrounding the Wolverines that only the greatest
teams have had.
It is a feeling that has been associated with the great John Wooden
UCLA teams; Bobby Knight's 1975 and '76 Hoosier squads; and most re-
cently with UNLV's short-lived dynasty.
This mystique was transferred in last year's NCAA semifinal game, in
which Duke defeated the previously unbeaten Runnin' Rebels. The Blue
Devils have held it throughout the year, weathering two defeats to hold the

seconds? More than enough time for a supremely confident team - a team
that can will itself to win - to take an improbable victory from the paws
of the 'Cats.
From Day One, say all of Michigan's rookies, we knew we could win the
title. The transfer of Duke's feeling of invincibility began even before the
two teams met in December. Although the Wolverines did not pull off the

ALBANY, N.Y. - Lake
Superior's 4-2 victory over
Michigan State places them in the
NCAA Championship game against
Wisconsin. That was the only thing
determined by the outcome.
LSSU and MSU have played five
times and the result was an even
split, 2-2-1. The results certainly
have not changed the opinion of ei-
ther team. Yesterday, however,
when the puck jumped out of MSU
goalie Mike Gilmore's glove, and
went in the net 1:27 into the game,
the fates had spoken and the Lakers
would never trail, despite heavy
pressure from the Spartans.
"It is very difficult to play from
behind all the time. That was the
biggest factor in the game," MSU
coach Ron Mason said. "The third
goal was the most important. It gave
them a lift and we began to sag. It
was the type of game that took a lot
out of both teams physically."
LSSU's third goal came at the
10:58 mark of the third period, re-
sulting from a scuffle in front of the
MSU net. The bouncing puck went
under the stick of State defenseman
Nicolas Perreault. Gilmore said he
believed Mark Astley would shoot
high, and when Astley slid the puck
between Gilmore's legs, the Spar-
tans were left limping.
Between those Laker scores the
Spartans kept the game knotted.
Perreault followed Laker Paul
Constantine's goal 15:28 into the
first period. In the second stanza,
MSU's Dwayne Norris retied the:
score after Constatine's second goal.
