TROPHY — Walt Hazzard, UCLA guard is hoisted up to the basket so he can cut the net off after the Bruins defeated Duke 98-83 to win the NCAA championship in Kansas City Sat- urdoy night. (UPl Telephoto) UCLA demoralizes Duke 98-83 in finals KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPD- Coach Dave Strack's Michigan Wolverines, who boast many of the characteristics which carried UCLA to a perfect season, loomed today as the logical long-range choice to succeed UCLA as the naUonal collegiate basketball champions. The Wolverines, who won the third place fitle in last weekend's 26th annual NCAA championships with a 100-90 consola tion victory over Kansas State, lose only one of the five quick youngsters who carried the load for the Big Ten co champs. But Coach John Wooden's "perpetual motion" UCLA Bruins, with their amazing speed, sticky zone press defense and deceptive rebounding, may also hustle their way back to the championship finals where they demoralized Duke 98-83 last Saturday night. Wooden loses All-America guard Walt Hazzard, center Fred Slaughter and forward Jack Hirsch from his battling Bruins, who became only the third NCAA champion in history to complete an untarnished season (30-0). Good Team Returning But Wooden concedes he will have a "pretty good team" next winter with starting jun iors Gail Goodrich and Keith Erickson coming back as seniors and spectacular sophomore Kennedy Washington—the sixlh starter — returning for an expected brilliant second chapter in « promising career. Duke's Vic Bubas and Kansas State's Tex Winter also will have some strong holdover strength. But if they are to make the 1965 final big four a repeat of this year's championship, they will have to come up with an unexpected talent. Michigan loses only outside bombardier Bob Cantrell from the team which finished the season with a 23-5 record. Strack, a quiet, stoical coach, admits he looks forward to next season with center Bill Buntin. the tournament's high scorer with 52 points, flashy Cazzie Russell and steady Larry Tre- goning and Oliver Darden com ing back. All-Tourney Team Buntin, who scored 33 points in the consolation victory over K-State when Russell sat out the game with an aggravated ankle injury, made the all-tour nament team along with Good rich and Hazzard of UCLA Duke's Jeff MuUins and Kansas State's Willie Murrell. Buntin also tied Jlurrell in total rebounds with 23. Goodrich and Washington were the scoring heroes of the UCLA blitz of Duke in the fl nals with 27 and 26 points, re spectively, after they had con tributed 14 and 13 points in the 90-84 semifinals defeat of Kan sas State. Duke returns starters Denny Ferguson, a guard, and Hack Tison, a forward, along with a pair of strong subs. Jack Marin and Steve Vacendak. Kansas State gets back starters Sammy Robinson at guard and Jeff Simons at forward plus top-line reserves Ron Paradis and Gary Williams.

Redlands Y.M. girls team beats Whittier Swim club loses to Riverside Bradley thumps New Mexico 86-54 in finals NEW YORK (UPI) — Bob King, the New Mexico basket ball coach, was more embar rassed than mad after Bradley had defeated his Lobos, 86-54, for the National Invitation Bas ketball Tournament championship. And Chuck Orsbom, the Braves' coach, knew exactly how King was feeling. Orsbom, who guided the Braves to their third NIT fitle in the last eight years, said the difference at Madison Square Garden last Saturday was simple man-to-man defense. "It was the best defense we played all year, especially in the first half." he said. "We were aggressive without too many fouls." Bradley's defense also was the precise cause of King's em barrassment because New Mexico had entered the tournament as the nation's leading defen sive team, having allowed just 55.7 points per game during the 1953-64 season. The New Mexico-Bradley game, close only in the opening mmutes, was a complete opposite from the consolafion game won by Army over NYU 60-59, when Mike Silliman made a one-bander with five seconds left.

Jy JULIUS BOROS '1ijJs ''dPEN CHAMPION II —Pre-Swinf Pattern Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Massage enabled Casper to play By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer MUMI (UPI) — With Billy Casper it's a case of always on Sunday. He wrapped up the S50.000 Doral InvitaUonal Golf Tournament on Palm Sunday with a two under par 35-35—70—playing head to head against Jack Nicklaus—and his 11 under par 277 for four rounds beat the young Buckeye belter by one slender stroke. But if it hadn't been for an- ither Sunday back in his home town of Bonita. Calif., last July he might not even have been on the scene. The story goes that last April at Greensboro he hurt his left hand hitting a shot when the lub dug into the turf. But in early May, at Las Vegas, affa-j He went to see the osteopath ble Billy was running at the lead in the Tournament of Champions when the pain in his hand became so severe that he had to withdraw. "I was worried out of my mind," he admitted. "I didn't know whether I'd ever be able to play golf again. Nothing I tried did any good and I couldn't even hold a golf club." For three months he was off the tour and his only solace was fishing. Then came a Sunday morning when, standing in his kitchen, a friend said there was a retired osteopath who lived five blocks away who thought he could remedy Billy's ailment. ••What have I got to lose?^' he shrugged. and the man after probing Casper^s hand with his fingers, told the wde-eyed Billy: "I can have you playing again in nine days." Casper was unbelieving but willing to try. "You know," he says in his bland manner, "I was playing in five days." The osteopath daily massaged the hand of the 32-year-old Casper, who won the 1959 U.S. Open championship. Four weeks later Casper rejoined the tour and surprised the golf world by winning the Insurance City Open at Hartford. Conn., in mid-August. This was his first win since then. "The hand still hurts me periodically," Casper admitted af­ ter his Dora] triumph over Nicklaus, probably the finest player in toe world today. "It hurt me off and on Friday but I still managed to get a 70. I guess it's something I have to live with. "But actually." he grinned, "I think I'm playing better now than I was when I won the Open in '59. I'm not putting well but I'm playing all the other shots good." From here, rotund Billy goes to the Azalea Open at Wilmington, N.C., and then on to the Masters. After that comes Greensboro —where just a year ago he hurt bis hand and almost ended bis career. It would be fitting ii the big man won it, on a Sunday. Let's stick with lining up the ball off the inside of the left heel. Now you are ready to place your club to the ball. Sole the club so the bottom rests level on toe ground. If the toe of toe club is sticking up, you are standing too far away from toe ball. If toe heel is standing up and toe toe is dropping, toen you are too close. That bottom line must be leveL With your feet in position, your weight properly set, and your knees flexed, you will find you are bent slightly forward at toe waist. Make sure your back is practically straight from your waist to your shoulders. As j-ou address toe ball, your arms should hang straight down from toe shoulders. The extension of your left arm should form a straight line wito the club. Your hands, as you look down toe shaft of toe club, should be slighUy ahead of toe balL I widen my stance, again reaffirm my line, and waggle toe clubhead. All of tois is done in a rhytomical flow of motion. After I have placed toe clubhead be- Iiind the ball, my feet are still close togetoer. Then I move my left foot to toe left At toe same time I again reaffirm my line MAKE SURE back Is pne> finny straight from traist to sboalders., and raise toe clubhead over toe ball in a semi-waggle. Next I move my right foot to the right and return toe club­ head to behind toe ball. Finally, wito my feet spread toe proper widto for the shot at hand and with my hips still prc- tumed to toe left. I take a final waggle and begin my backswing wito no conscious pause beforehand. (From the book. "Par Golf or Better by Julius Boros. Copyrtjht by PmiUce-HaU, Inc. Englewood 010^
