This little trip was arranged at the last second by the Virginia Cavaliers. Surprising Virginia pulled off one of the biggest upsets of this year's college basketball season Saturday night, whipping the fourth-ranked Tar Heels 67-62 in the finals of the Atlantic Coast Conference playoffs. North Carolina will be forced to travel to Dayton, Ohio, for the NCAA's Mideast Regionals next Saturday instead of playing in the more familiar surroundings of Charlotte, N.C., site of the East playoffs. North Carolina will face a tougher draw because of it, too. Virginia's startling victory gave the Cavaliers a first-round game against DePaul. North Carolina's loss means a firstround NCAA date with the winner of the Southeastern Conference and puts three of the nation's' top four teams in the same regional — top-ranked Indiana, second-ranked Mar- quette and the fourth-ranked Tar Heels. The' SEC race will be decided Monday night when Alabama faces Vanderbilt in the season finale. The Crimson Tide must, beat the Commodores for the championship, otherwise a coin flip will decide North Carolina's eventual opponent. The SEC race was thrown into a turmoil due to Saturday's results, which produced a 90-85 upset for Kentucky over Alabama and Tennessee's 86-70 romp over Georgia. in the district final win over rival Roosevelt, led all scorers with 18 points. Teammate Morris added 13. Kuemper showed the balance to victory as Friedman tallied 12 points, all coming in the second half. Other Knights scoring in double figures were Bob Kelly with 11 and Tom Kelly and Tessmer with 10 each. For the game, Kuemper shot 46 per cent from the field, including a blistering 73 per cent in the third quarter (8 of 11). Dowling shot a cold 38 per cent. Kuemper also won the board battle, 31 to 23, over the taller Hysteria is Here DES MOINES, Iowa < AP) — Iowa is going through that annual phenomenon again, and don't snicker. Folks get pretty serious about this thing. It's the 57th annual hysteria — the Iowa girls' high school basketball tournament. Among the 90,000 fans will be such luminaries as former football Coach Ara Parseghian and composer Meredith Wilson. Five days of whooping and crying — mandatory whether you win or lose — starts Tuesday in Veterans Memorial Auditorium. The last four sessions were sold out Jan. 26, long before anybody even knew which 16 teams would compete. But the tourney won't end those countless debates as to which is really the best of the 493 teams that started the season. There should be room for argument at least into the summer. Parseghian will film two days of action for his new "Ara's World of Sport" television show. Willson, of "Music Man" fame, will direct an all-state band as part of the colorful between-games entertainment. But Uncle Joe Leader's 101 years will probably stop him from arriving from Atlantic, Iowa. Leader, good fan that he is, turned up missing at a nursing home a few years back. He'd hopped a bus for the tournament. "I got interested when my oldest daughter played and they wore bloomers," said Uncle Joe. "Once you get bit by the girls" basketball bug, you're hooked." At one tournament, tickets for the championship round, as usual, were sold but. The 1.000 members of Local 89. United Packing House Workers of America, AFL-CIO, couldn't attend and held a special meeting to protest plans not to televise the game. Maroons as Friedman and Bob Kelly each grabbed 10. Kuemper must now wait until tonight to find out who they will play in the first round of the state tournament which starts March 16th. The most likely opponent is Mississippi Valley Conference • champion, Washington of Cedar Rapids. Box Score: Kuemper FG FT PF TP Friedman... 5 2-2 4 12 T.
