Reds Bruins Hope Norman Stay Find By DWAM ESPER As thi unquestionedinjler.of the collegiate world, UCLA faces" a possible crisis In he next month. . Jerry Norman assistant to head coach John Wooden and top recruiter, seriously is considering a move into the stock brokerage, business. ,Tve been 'investigating' it for some' time," he 'admitted sfter the Bruins swept by Forth Carolina 78-55 Saturday night at the Sports Arena tor their fourth NCAA championship. "Sure I enjoy coaching has-fcetball, but I've got !o Hunk of my future .and which is the best course 'for me." ;- It's hri secret that Norman is' one of the most' capable aides in the .game. Wooden gave Norman' full credit for devising the diamond-and-one defense that . shackled Houston's Elvln Hayes in the 10I-S9 semifinal rout Friday iiigut. Hayes, who was averaging 37.7 points per game, got only 10 against the Bruins. Lynn Shackelford played Hayes tight at all times, making it almost impossible for him to get the ball. Meanwhile, the other four Bruins were In a diamond zone, culling off the alternate Cougar lanes to the basket. ' "It was a great tactic," lauded Pete Newell, retiring California athletic director. As a coach, of course, Newell is remembered for his vice-like defenses against stars of Hayes' calibre.

Norman convinced Wooden Although Wooden a rways en- that the d i a rh o n d-and-one joyed brilliant success, he how owns :' a record matched only by Kentucky's "Adolph Riipp's four national - championships. And N,orihan has been un hand for all four. Iti addition, Normaii dues a, fantastic recruiting ;jnh: His yearly , forage's ' ' around the country .helped lure Alcindor from New. York; Lucius Allen from Kansas and Mike Warren from Indiana' Previously Fred S 1 a u h t e r had come from Kansas and Wall Haz ard from Philadelphia. Norman also is an expert on the full court zone press, which Wooden introduced as a continuing game tactic in ifffi-i.. Ilia Bruins promptly rolled lo their first 30-11 season and national championship. . Since then,, other coaches liave followed nuil, and the zone pre.vs is common practice in college basketball. ' Should' Norinaii' decided' to rellre at-the age of 38, a gap ing hole will be left in the UCLA athletic structure. .. ' NCAA : FlCKUl'S The Bruins held North Carolina to its lowest total of Ihe season Saturday night. Previous Tar Heel low was 58 points' against .North Carolina State and Oregon State. . .The :polnt, margin of .23 was the largest' for 'an NCAA . final, in hislory. Previous "record was -21), by Ohio Slate' in a 75-55 'victory over California in 1560... .Alcindor was a near unanimous pick as the tournament's most valuable player.. Ttirce other Bruins, Allen, Shackelford and Mike Warren made ' the all-tourney learn. Larry Miller of North ' Carolina rounded out the quintet ' HUSKY CHOICE - They say that- Slippery.., Joe.-Cipri-ano, now at Nebraska; will be the next coach at Washington. Clpriano played. on the great Husky teams .of 1981-3 - along with Bob Houbregs. . .California officials apparently are pondering whether lo retain Rene Herrcrlas as. coach. Although hie has one year to go on his present contract, Hcr-rerias is on shaky ground due to the racial problems, which plagued his team during the season. Jim Padgett, current assistant, would be the logical choice to move up to the head job. FUTURE SllfcS - The NCAA tournament returns lo Louisville, Ky., next year and moves on to College Park, Maryland, in 1970. The Sports Arena people hope .to get It back In 1871. . .Fro scouis were impressed with fi-7 Bill Hosket of Ohio Stale. Hosket is a good outside shooter and line leaper. He could became a valuable corner man or some pro team. . .Although one local newspaper hinted hat UCLA's Lucius Allen is having grade problems, it is not at all certain he will flunk out o( school. Allen took all his finals and awaits the results as "hundreds o oilier students aroun-rt the country.'1 according to Wooden. N.L. Easy ; .
