Super Match-up Between UCLA, Indiana By The Associated Press The players have changed over the years — Walt Hazzard, Gail Goodrich, Lew Alcindor, Curtis Rowe, Sidney Wicks, Henry Bibby, Bill Walton, Keith Wilkes and Dave Meyers — but the basketball championship trophies continued to be won by UCLA. Behind all the changes and titles stood one man — Coach John Wooden. Wooden is gone now, and new Coach Gene Bartow has taken the Bruins to the NCAA's Final Four. Unlike the past, UCLA is not the odds-on favorite. Barlow's Bruins meet top- ranked and undefeated Indiana in one semifinal game Saturday in Philadelphia. The other semifinal pits fourth-ranked Rutgers, also unbeaten this season, against Michigan. "We're healthy, excited and it shapes up as a super game." Bartow said of the UCLA-In- basketball team. They're diana clash. "Indiana has sound in every phase of the proven it is an excellent game and have an outstanding coach in Bobby Knight." Barlow's Bruins and Knight's Hoosiers have met before — in the opening game of the 1975-76 regular season. Indiana won, 84-64. Carroll Daily Times Herald Section B Carroll, Iowa, Wednesday, March 24, 1976 Page 1 3 "I've usually never been caught up in what an opponent does," Bartow said. "But that was my first game as UCLA's coach and, as I've said, I over- prepared my team and put loo much pressure on them." Bartow said his Bruins will have a different outlook this Saturday.

Today's session, al Ihe offices of chief management negotiator John Gaherin, was the firsl formal meeling belween Ihe Iwo sides in' 10 days. Al Iheir lasl confrontation, the managemenl commiltee presented what it called its final offer lo Ihe players associalion. That proposal recognized the free agent righls won by Ihe players in arbitration last December and subsequently upheld in federal court. The owners offered free agency to all major leaguers in Ihe next two seasons but tied certain limitations to the proposal, including an eight-club draft of the players involved. When the union's executive board neither accepted nor re-. jccted the proposal, the owners withdrew it, although Miller has not officially been notified that the offer is no longer on the table. Meanwhile, training camps have opened and the start of the regular season no longer is in jeopardy. Those develop- menls have relieved Ihe pressure of lime lhal had been a factor in some of Ihe lalks. Bul Ihey haven't relieved Miller's unhappiness with some of what wenl on during Ihe delayed opening of camps. "There were al leasl half a dozen violations by the owners . . . instances of unfair labor practices," said Miller. He ciled Texas Owner Brad Corbell's dealings wilh players- as one example. Corbett allegedly mel wilh his players lo tell Ihem of the owners' offer and counselled them on how to vole before Ihe proposal was formally presented to Miller. Miller was asked if he intended to pursue the violations wilh Ihe National Labor Rela- lions Board. "Probably," he said. "We'll have lo lake a look al it A decision will be made shortly." Miller called Ihe camp lock- oul, "a naked altempt lo divide the players lhal did nol work." The owners had refused lo open camp, demanding that a contracl wilh Ihe players be reached firsl.

Not a race for first place — the Golden State Warriors made a shambles of thai a long time ago. But Phoenix, Seattle and Los Angeles have come up with a wild scramble of their own. Those three are battling for two playoff spots, and the battle has become quite heated, the Phoenix Suns, out of the running for most of the year, took their biggest stride towards posl-season play Tuesday night when they beat the Seattle SuperSonics 104-97 behind a career-high 39 points by guard Paul Westphal.

Three Men Kicked Off Drake Team DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Three men who tried out for Drake's women's softball team were kicked off the squad Tuesday when school officials said they had no legal right to be on the team. "We've been booted off the team," said Bruce Frank. "The only reason I can see for getting kicked off was that we're men." Frank, Greg Seyfer and Mike McQuade were trying to win places on the women's team because the school no longer fields a men's baseball team. "Betty Werner (women's Celtics 101, Jazz 97, OT Dave Cowens scored six of Boston's eight overtime points after shooting just 3-for-20 from the field during regulation and finished with 18 points, two less than Jo Jo White and John Havlicek. Blazers 100, Bucks 97, OT Lloyd Neal sank two baskets in the final two minutes of overtime and Sidney Wicks sank a pair of free throws with five seconds remaining to clinch Portland's triumph. Warriors 118, Hawks 100 • Atlanta, which suffered its seventh loss in a row, led 27-14 late in the first period but then rookie Gus Williams came off the bench to score 14 points in the second quarter and the Warriors caught up and then pulled away. Williams led all scorers with 27 points. athletic director) told us we have no legal right to play for the team," said Frank. Don Adams, vice president of student life at Drake, said the main reason for barring the men is that "the women's program here is so new that I think it's important to get it off the ground in the right way.'' Adams said he told Frank he feels Drake "is on good ground" in making the decision. Frank said he was told Drake would provide a baseball or softball club team in the future. "But it would be too late for me," said the senior. "Unfortunately, we can't be alj things to all people in athletics," Adams said. pledge." The camps were opened one week ago under orders from Commissioner Bowie Kuhn. The commissioner's action did not have total support from the owners and he heard considerable criticism from them when the 24 major league clubs met last Saturday. It was at that meeting that the owners, also angered over what they considered an overly liberal proposal, listened to a three-hour report from the Player Relations Committee. Afterwards, they gave the negotiating team a vote of confidence and directed them to resume talks. The players have asked that the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service be called into the dispute and that until the impasse is solved, the owners extend the old basic agreement which expired last Dec. 31. Those proposals were expected to be discussed by the two sides today. Indiana does," he said. "And if we play the way we're capable of playing ... I think we're going to win." Knight agrees that their first meeting is no indication of what Saturday's game will belike. "Opening games often are not a reliable yardstick for comparison," the Indiana coach said. "UCLA has improved greatly over the season. I'm sure we have, also." The Rutgers-Michigan game will pit two teams with similar styles, according to University of Detroit Coach Dick Vitale. A f o r m e r Rutgers assistant coach. Vitale is familiar with the personnel of both teams and picks the Wolverines to end Rutgers' unbeaten streak at 31. "You couldn't find two teams with lightning speed like Michigan and Rutgers," Vitale said. "You will have 10^ players who will race up and' down the court like you can't believe."
