Fans of both teams cheered like high school. rooting sections as their favorites took the lead. FLT gained the right to the finals by coming from behind in . the fourth quarter to eliminate the Windfall Lions 74-65. fa this -game Phifer, Whelchel,, Burkhardt, Smith=and Hobbs all IU, Big Ten Runnerup By United Press International Indiana held down runnerup honors with .. Michigan in the Big Ten basketball standings today with Purdue fourth, but chances were fading that either of them will catch Ohio State for the title.' Meanwhile, the District 21 NAIA playoffs open at Richmond tonight, Tri-State opposing Huntington andhost Earl- . ham going against Franklin. \ The two- winners, tangle Tuesday, with, the survivor advancing to the tourney finals at Kansas City. - While Indiana outclassed Northwestern Saturday, 97-74,. at Bloomington, Purdue scored just as easy a home victory over Michigan - State, 100-70. That left Indiana. with an 8-2 league record, Purdue 7-3. Both games were no contests after the opening minutes. Jndi- ana, with big George McGinnis sitting out much of the game with three fouls, led 51-27 at the half. McGinnis led the scoring with 25 points and Joby Wright added 22 as coach Lou Watson used virtually every player on his bench. . It was-pretty much the same story at Purdue, where the Boilermakers rolled to a 50-32 halftime lead over MS U. George Faerber canned 244 points and Bob Ford 21 to lead. the rout. , Notre Dame made it a perfect day for Indiana's "Big Three," spanking St. John's, -92-79, in New York for a 17-7 season record. Austin Carr led the Irish with 32 points. In intra-state games, Valparaiso beat Indiana Central, 69-58, and Tri-State dumped Anderson, 96-76." Indiana State finished Midwestern Conference play with a 5-3 record, losing at Northern Illinois, 107-80. Southern Illinois, the league champ, scored 12 .straight points in the final 90 seconds to catch Evansville, 101-98. were in double figures. For Windfall Blaylock had 24 and Gene Clark 18 for Windfall. CNB to reach thefinals staved off a last quarter rally to defeat the First Federal Savings and Loan 64-59. Neff led CNB. Dickover and Jung led FF. . C-0 This columns all Sectional team, although difficult to choose in a few of spots is as follows: F Jim York . . Tipton F Jim Martin TC F John Kamstra R'ville F Mike Foster Fr'nk C Pat Manahan Delphi C Rick Cyphers , TC G Gary Kamstra R'ville G Tom Bonebfake . R'ville G D. Kingery CC G B. Richardson Tipton C-0 The 203 total points scored by Rossville and Tti-Central in Saturday night's Sectional finals averaged more tjjan six and one-third points per minute for the 32 minutes, which is the prep school time schedule per game. This is a terrific scoring pace even-for pros who play 12 minutes per quarter or 48 minutes for the game. Tri-Central's 88 markers would win 95 percent of games, but this was one in 20 when the odds went against the Trojans. However a few cases of tough luck in hitting the bucket in the first quarter could easily have been the difference in this ball game despite the fact that the Hornets were shooting magnificently. C-0 This was the third straight year for Coach John Harding to reach the finals in the Frankfort Sectional only to lose. In 1969 and 1970 Coach Harding took his Sharpsville-Prairie teams to the Frankfort finals only to be sidelined and this is getting to be a "bad dream" the mentor sadly stated.' C-0 , Starting the second half of Saturday night's Sectional finals,. one of the referees noticed an official scorer's position empty and he held up the other referee on tossing up the ball to start the third period until the stripped shirt official came running through the entrance door and to his position. C-0 About 80 vehicles traveled in a caravan from Tri-Central High School via SharpsvUle, US 31 and fad. 28 to the Frankfort gym Saturday night. A good indication of fan backing. i Nicklous Trails $$ PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (UPI)-Billy Casper has won only. one-third as many "major" tournaments as Jack Nicklaus. But you couldn't prove that by the checks he deposits. Casper, who finished second Sunday to Nicklaus in the PGA championship, has won only three "major" titles in his 16 years on the tour. But, he's banked nearly $1.2 million in golf earnings in that time. Furthermore, although Nicklaus now has nine of those "major" professional titles to Ms credit, he trails Casper by about $3,000 on the all-time money list. Of course, both trail Arnold Palmer who is now past the $1.3 million mark -but that's another story.

Indiana High School By KURT FREUDENTHAL INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)Some, like tradition rich Lafayette, limped home as winners,, but it was a powerful and still upset-minded field of 64 that made off with Indiana high school basketball sectional tourney honors. Some of the lesser lights just barely fell short of achieving jumbo, upsets, but when the dust had settled on six days of initial eliminations -Saturday night, the original field of 436 was pruned to 64 and these facts stood out: —Seven UPI coaches' Board "Big 10" members were still in the running, led by No. 1 East Chicago Washington, the only unbeaten club in the show. — nine brand-new sectional champs" were crowned. — Twenty-five first-round winners repeated. — Ten of the- 16 regional champs are left, including three of last year's "Final Four." • — Finally, 14 former state champs are still battling.

East Chicago's Senators overpowered Hobart, 87-56, to run their perfect string to 23 games and most of the other "name" clubs also turnUd; in impressive victories. ! But Lafayette staggered to a 78-77 overtime win over unheralded Southwestern of Tippecanoe County on Brent Green's free throw in the final seconds to record its record 48th sectional crown and 28th in a row. West Wins First ', Michigan City went oyer the century mark in both sectional games to increase its first- round tourney string to 20. The Red Devils avenged a regular season loss in their finale by taking LaPorte, 101-94. West, a school just two years old, became one of the brand- new sectional champs, beating Gary Emerson, 77-62. Two new consolidations also paid off in sectional crowns for Owen Valley: at Clay City and Kankakee Valley at North White. The other new champs are 'Fort Wayne Elmhurst, Floyd Central at JeffersonviUe, Franklin Central at Shelbyville, Benton Central, Bellmont and Indianapolis Cathedral. The latter, a former national parochial champion,. was admitted to the ..IHSAA only in the 1940s.

Tri-Central started fast against the Hornets in the championship game and went to a 6-2 lead on digits by Jeff Modisett, Rick Cyphers. and Jim Martin. TC held leads of 8-5 and 10-7 before the torrid .700 shootingof RossviUe's John and Garry Kam• srra and Tom Bonebrake ran the count, to 31-21 at the end of the first stanza. Dave Harding and Steve Vandiver, too, hit markers in the Trojan scoring.' The Hornets continued the torrid scoring pace in' the second canto and increased the lead to 55-40 at the intermission. Bob Knapp, speedy Hornet guard, took over the firing in the third canto and hit six of nine attempts plus John Kamstra's five buckets and this offset a briUiant shooting display by Jim Martin's 10 markers. The three periods went by with the count 81-55. ~ The final quarter was just as exciting as the other periods with Jim] Martin and Roger Whitehead supplying most of TC's tallies. Steve Butler; Tom Reese, Brad Roler, Rod Johnson and Jeff Harlow all pitched in very well in the relief role. RossviUe's vaunted fast break continued through most of the final period and after the century mark was.reached, Coach Jones let his proteges keep firing, but the Trojans too were showing plenty of roundbaU savy and too, those .in the relief roles did a commendable job. .
