The Gophers beat Mich- gan over the weekend 98 80 to remain one percentage poinl over 9-3 Indiana and 8-3 Purdue. The second and third place inishers will probably go to the NIT.

Miami of Ohio and We her S t a t e qualified for the NCAA tournament over the weekend winning the Pacific Coast Alhletic Conference, the Missouri Valley Conference and the Mid-American Conference, respectively. Weber Slate had won a berth earlier by taking the Big Sky Conference Crown. UCLA, the defending national champion and possessor of a 68 game winning streak, clinched at least a tie in the Pacific 8 and is expected to win Ihe conference for the seventh straight year against California and Stanford t h i s weekend. If the last six years are any indication, the Bruins will be in St. Louis on March 24.

The Quakers can wrap up their fourth consecutive Ivy League title by beating Harvard and Dartmouth next week- against Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Colorado.

SWC--Texas Tech still fa- Central Remains First Northside Earns 3rd Position In Poll LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Mon- licello Coach Keltim Busby must he a super salesman. He sells defense and his Hillbillies have bought it. Monticello h a s than 38 points a allowed less .._ r game while building a 25-3 record and this week is ranked seventh in The Associated Press high, school basketball poll. Little Rock Central, wrapped up the Class title with victories over Rock Parkview. North which AAAA Little . Little Rock Ole Main and Fort Smith Norlhside, was a solid choice for the top spot with II of the 12 firsl-place votes cast by a panel of sportswriters and sportscasters. Morrilton remained second, followed by Northside, Ole Main, Jonesboro, Conway, Monticello, Harrison, Pine Bluff and Wynne. Northside moved from fifth to third after beating Pine Bluff and losing to Central. Ole Main remained fourth and Jonesboro dropped from third to fifth after losing to Forrest City. Conway remained sixth despite a loss to Hot Springs and Pine Bluff dropped from seventh to ninth after losing to Northside and Little Rock Calholic. Harrison remained eighth and Monticello jumped two notches. Osceola. ranked 10th last week, dropped from the rankings after losing to Trumann. "Defense is hard to sell because the first thing you read in the newspaper is who scores the points," Busby says. "We play a disciplined offense and we have to p l a y defense to have an effective team. I believe our team has to start with defense. I believe that in any sport, defense has got to come cessful," Busby said. "Mr. Coston had only one losing year in about 24 and we've won over 20 games every year in my three years." Monticello has allowed 50 points or more on four occasions this year. The Hillbillies lost three of the four. Busby became convinced last first, Busby says he takes much ribbing because of his fondness for defense and that his teams have played others that believe just the opposite -- "that the best defense is two points." Busby emphasizes personal pride when selling his product. "If a player knows he's responsible for somebody. . he pretty well knows whether he did a, good job or not," Busby said. "It one player scores 28 and the player he's guarding scores 30. you're still losing. If we play against someone who is averaging 20 points a game and we hold him to 10 or 15, I figure we're doing a pretty good job." The Hillbillies' man to man defense has become almost a tradition in Monticello. Busby learned the defense while playing under Dan Coston and serving as Coston's assistant for two years. "It's kind of the situation, why change when you're suc- evening at Arkadelphia against Magnolia, winner of the tournament the past two years. Busby fears Magnolia's tournament experience, but believes the Hillbillies will have incentive. Monticello was 9-0 when it lost to Magnolia in overtime early in the season.
