So they go into the semifinals of the NCAA national basketball championship with the nation's 1 ranking, the favorites' role and an unparalleled history of success. 'Nobody could have foreseen this," said Coach Adolph Rupp. "You could only dream about it. "Naturally, we would have liked to have ended up undefeated, but 25-1 is a simply unbelievable record when you stop to think about it." The Wildcats earned their spot in the NCAA semifinals at College Park, Md.. this weekend when tht., turned back Big Ten champion Michigan 84-77 in the Mideast regional finals at Iowa City, Iowa, Saturday.
