SPORTS Hoosiers Earn Title PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Indiana Hoosiers were ' handed the No. 1 ranking at the start of the season, but that doesn't mean anything unless you can earn it on the court. They did—32 times. The "perfect" Hoosiers capped a glorious 32-0 season Monday night with a businesslike 8648 victory over Michigan in the NCAA finals, ending a long quest for college basketball's Holy Grail. "If we don't deserve to be national champions, then I don't know who does," said Indiana's superlative guard, Quinn Buckner. "We won all our games. What else can you do?" The Hoosiers survived several pitfalls on the road to the championship — including a mild mid-season slump that relegated Buckner to the bench. During this time, they Snapper. • Vacuums your lawn ' as you mow. • Large capacity bag between the handles. • Self propelled models have 6 forward speeds. • Rear-wheel drive. • Automatic freewheeling feature.

Despite what.Buckner called "peaks and valleys," Indiana made it through the Big Ten season undefeated, a performance that Michigan Coach Johnny Orr called "unbelievable." What happened thereafter was even more impressive. The Hoosiers, playing in one of the toughest regional tourneys in NCAA history, defeated St. John's, Alabama and Marquette to win the Mideast and advance to the gold-plated Final Four in Philadelphia. "It was very physical all through the Big Ten and just as physical in the regionals," pointed out Indiana strongman Kent Benson. "It was as physical as I can remember." UCLA's Bruins, the defending champions, presented no problem to peaking Indiana, in Saturday's semifinals at the Spectrum. The Hoosiers, who had beaten UCLA by a shocking 20 points on opening day, handled them with almost as much ease the second time. For a change, Benson and Player of the Year Scott May took a backseat to two lesser lights — Tom Abernethy and Bobby Wilkerson. Abernethy scored 14 points and shut down UCLA's Richard Washington and Wilkerson grabbed a career-high 19 rebounds. And Indiana won, 65-51. While the Big Ten champions were disposing of tall and talented UCLA, Michigan was belaboring Rutgers. Indiana's Big Ten colleagues handed the Scarlet Knights their first defeat of the season after 31 victories, 86-70, and set up a unique NCAA finale. It was the first time in NCAA playoff history that two teams from the same conference met in the championship game. "It'll probably be the last time in our lifetime that we ever see something like this again," said Orr. "Take a good look at it." Indiana's brightness didn't shine until after the Hoosiers Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Tueiday, March 30, 197e were hit by adversity. Wilkerson, one of the few starting guards in the country at 6-foot- 7, suffered a concussion in the early going and had to be carried from the court on a stretcher. "When Bobby got hurt we knew we had to go at it tougher," said Buckner. "Bobby's a big part of our team. We did go at it." Actually, the Hoosiers didn't really "go at it" until after the start of the second half. The Wolverines kept ahead of their Big Ten colleagues with a brilliant fast break and by intermission, led 35-29. Benson, a blond giant with a pacifist temperament off the court and a killer instinct on, blamed his first-half timidity for the Hoosiers' uncharacteristic performance before intermission. Benson pulled himself together in the second half — and in the process, pulled Michigan apart. The Ail-American center took charge of things, scoring 15 of his 25 points and collecting six of his nine rebounds. With the help of their tower of strength, the Hoosiers went from a 51-51 tie with 10:15 left to a 73-59 lead at the 3:51 mark. Indiana only had to run out the clock after that overpowering 22-8 burst. May also had a high-powered second half for Indiana, scoring 18 of his game-high 26 'points and pulling down all of his eight, . rebounds. "We just couldn't get the running game going in the second half," said Rickey Green, Michigan's high scorer with 18 points. "They were making their shots and we couldn't get the rebounds. We've got to get the rebounds to run. I think we ran pretty well in the first half and that was the difference." Orr, who almost beat Indiana during the regular season, found the Hoosiers much stronger in their third meeting — in fact, downright indestructible in the second half. "They played a great second half," noted Orr, bitterly disappointed. "I don't know what else we could have done." The splendid season matched the 32-0 perfection of North Carolina in 1957, the best undefeated record in NCAA history. "For two years, this (NCAA championship) has been our objective," said Indiana Coach Bobby Knight. "Not just this year, but for two years these kids have worked hard — and no one knows how hard any better than I do."

Benson Plays for the Glory of God PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Kent Benson, the Most Valuable player of the 1976 National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball Championship, might best be described as a Dave Cowens in a college uniform. The 6-foot-ll Benson bulls to the basket and seems to have a nose for the ball, just like Cowens, the star center of the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. Benson, a 245-pounder with the moves of a guard,' scored 25 points, grabbed nine rebounds and handed out two assists as he muscled the unbeaten Indiana Hoosiers to the national collegiate' basketball championship. Indiana crushed Michigan 86-68 Monday night to complete a march through one of the toughest brackets in NCAA tournament history. The Hoosiers beat four of the Top Ten ranked teams en route to their third title in eight postseason ventures. Both winning Coach Bobby Knight and loser Johnny Orr put the finger on Benson as the major difference between the two Big Ten rivals. Knight observed that Benson deserved the MVP accolade. "He played an outstanding game," said the Indiana coach. "He did an outstanding job on the boards. He got the ball for us." Benson, a junior from New Castle, Ind., didn't allow a little thing like a cast on his left wrist to deter him. He's been playing with torn ligaments, and has plans for an operation during the off season. And to hear Knight tell it, Benson has yet to reach his peak. "Benson has developed well at Indiana," observed Knight, who has encouraged the big guy to be aggressive. "He'll develop even more next year," Knight said. "He's done an outstanding job and he'll do even better," the coach advised. It's hard to envision Benson any better than he was against Michigan Monday night. He was devastating. Phil Hubbard, the talented Wolverine center, fouled out trying to stop the Indiana crasher. Benson scored 10 points in the first half as Indiana left,trailing 35-29. "It was just a matter of gathering myself (together)," Benson said. "I was a little tight in the first half. I knew I had to take the ball stronger to the hoop. I had to do my job rebounding and defending." Then, Benson provided the understatement of the night. "I guess I just played harder in the second half," he noted. Benson credits God with his development as the best center in college basketball. "Coach Knight helped me considerably, but everything I've done goes back to my faith in Jesus Christ. I played tonight (Monday) not for myself, or for my teammates, but for the glory of God. I get my emotional energies from Jesus Christ. He's my only audience. I try to play for him."
