TEAM: Swimming
HOMETOwN: Arlington, Va.
YEAR: Sophomore
WHY: Dolan set three American records this weekend en route to a team title at the NCAA Championships. He

Defending champs return to Final Four
Arkansas to face North Carolina; UCLA tangles with Oklahoma State in Seattle

The Associated Press
4The 57th Final Four will have a
field full of former national champi-
ons - it's just a matter of how long
ago those titles were won.
Saturday's matchups will have
Porth Carolina against Arkansas in a
neeting of schools that won the last two
national titles, and Oklahoma State
4gainst UCLA in a game where the
mnore recent winner was 20 years ago.
That is all ancient history.
What matters now is that four
t(ims, none seeded lower than fourth,
g'fl play at Seattle's Kingdome with
Irths in next Monday night's na-
tknal championship game at stake.
UCLA (29-2) vs. Oklahoma State
UCLA last won a national title 20
years ago, the last of John Wooden's
rtO in a 12-year period, and the Bru-
ins' last visit to a Final Four was in
1980 when Larry Brown took a fresh-
man-laden team there.
It's longer, much longer, on both
fronts for Oklahoma State. The Cow-

boys were last in the Final Four in
1951 and their second of two national
titles was in 1946 under the legendary
Henry Iba.
Top-ranked UCLA survived a sec-
ond-round scare from Missouri with
an all-time length-of-the-court drive
by Tyus Edney, along with Ed
O'Bannon, the senior leader of the
team. The top-seeded Bruins did little
wrong in winning the West Regional
with a 102-96 victory over second-
seeded Connecticut and are college
basketball's hottest team, holding the
No. I ranking for the final three polls
of the season.
Fourth-seeded Oklahoma State
rode its inside-outside combination
of Bryant Reeves and Randy
Rutherford to the Final Four. The last
three games were impressive ones for
the 7-foot Reeves as he met and dis-
patched three outstanding centers:
Antonio McDyess of Alabama, Tim
Duncan of Wake Forest and Marcus
Camby of Massachusetts. Second-
seeded Massachusetts felt the wrath

of the Cowboys' defense, scoring a
season-low while shooting a season-
low 28 percent in a 68-54 loss in the
East Regional final.
The Cowboys can't run with the
Bruins, few teams can, but they can
set the tempo and it's done with the
defense. UCLA will want to get the
ball in the open court so Edney can
perform his breathtaking feats well
before the final buzzer.
North Carolina (28-5) vs. Arkan-
sas (31-6)
Both teams were second seeds in
their regions but their paths were very
Arkansas, the defending champi-
ons, is looking to join Duke in 1991-
92 as the only repeaters since UCLA's
seven-year run ended in 1973. The
Razorbacks, despite having all five
starters back from the title team,
squeaked and squealed their way
through their first three games by a
total of eight points, the last two go-
ing to overtime. They reached the
Final Four by beating Virginia 68-61
