Wash Holds Swim Top FT DODGE- Cedar Rapids Washington, which defeated Ames 109-61 in a dual meet Saturday, holds a clear advantage over the Little Cyclones in the “Time Formula” comparison of times prepared by Swim. Inc., here. Wash has 703 points to 661 by Ames according to this formula. Despite that edge. Wash mers and divers lead in only two events—Doug Buchheister in diving and the Wash 400-yard free relay team. But the Warriors have swimmers ranking near the top in every event.

Not Just Another Game for UCLA LOS ANGELES <AF) Keith Wilkes told everyone was just another game,” but the UCLA senior admitted later swim-(that the Bruins’ 94-75 over Notre Dame meant quite a bit more. “This wasn’t another game because they were the team that beat us,” Wilkes said, and; - ishes    the thought    of a    third it meeting    this year.

No Bunky, we aren’t rivalries, too, such as Washington and Wahlert, and our kids seem to enjoy getting fired up for them. “It just seems that this is a bigger game for LaSalle because we are a bigger school.” Yes, it is the BIG one for LaSalle, as Coach Duane ; Kramer pointed out. And he went through one of those one ] point affairs also in his first year at the helm six years ago. I “It’s the rivalry thing,” 1 Kramer explained. “Our kids get more psyc hed up to play Regis than anybody else. “And it makes no difference!

The latest came last Dec. II. with LaSalle taking a 62-61 tory in double overtime. Rick Westhoff, the Regis coach, has been involved in three of the one-point games and is yet to win one. “Two years ago,” Rick recalled, “we lost iii the last second And in my first year, when LaSalle had a very good team, we lost another one by one.” The series has not been unlike any other traditional rivalry. The “upset” is a common thing | — the lone guarantee being that an intense* battle is in store. However, Westhoff would like to see his club become more keyed up for LaSalle. “I know LaSalle is always sky-high for us,” hr said. “We get up for them, hut not as high as I think we should. “I’m    not    putting LaSalle down, but we have other big over Benton Community. “But Paul still is much more v * c - effective than he was IO days ;ago,” said Kramer. “We have to have him, there’s no question about it.

The finish made you wonder how easily Iowa would have won if it had started at the same time as the Wolverines. Michigan dashed away to a 13-0 lead. It was so one-sided early that some of the 11.965 customers began wondering if they were seeing the first Big Ten basketball shutout in modem times. When Jim Collins finally got Iowa’s first points on a lunik shot with 5:47 elapsed, you almost felt like stopping the game and having the referees award him the game ball as a souvenir. Iii case you were arguing about how many shots in a row were made by Iowa's Neil Fegebank, don’t bet on more than five. Ile had four straight in the first half and a run of five in the second. His best streak was eight of nine in the last half. But the remarkable thing was that none of them was a setup, and most were in the 25- to 15-foot range. Kicker for Iowa? —Tom Cecchine Iowa’s newest assistant football coach, said Monday it isn’t likely he will bring many of his Xavier grinders with him They would he eligible this fall, as that is the NCAA rule when a school gives up football. “Most of the good players already are set up and enrolled at other schools for this sc Hipster.” Tom said. “When Xavier decided to abandon tin* sport (for financial reasons) in early December, I advised the plavers who wanted to continue playing football to get lined up as soon as possible. “We hail several outstanding players I think cml Id have helped us at Iowa. Especially two lug tackles. One of them is going to Indiana and the other to Hall State. “We did have a fine kicker at Xavier who could help us here. He is Nick Quataro, who won three games for us last season with his placekkks That’s pretty good, considering we won only five games, I’m going to talk to him about coming here,” Our ears pricked up at that, as Iowa’s fine placckieker, Harry Kokolus, has finished his competition and Coach Boh Cummings admit ted last Friday he will have to recruit one We asked Cecchini if a kicker named Nick Quat aru is one of those foreign born soccer landers” “No, Nick is an American,” laughed Tom, “and he boots ’em straightaway, not from the side. But he's a good, consistent kicker. I think his longest field goal last season was about 40 yards. Ile also is a good punter, but we had another punter at Xavier who was better and probably will be drafted by the pros.” Iowa's punter last year was Joe Heppner, a game young man from Clinton who was a football walk-on. But Joe finished up eighth in the Big Ten with a 36.3-yard average. Incidentally, my skirmishes with the Italian language in the land of the paisans last May fells me Cecchini’s name is pronounced “Chi-KEE-nee.” Right, Jack Zazza? man Marques Johnson, making his first start, led the assault as UCLA avenged their only defeat in their last 91 games, the 171-70 victory by Notre Dame a I week earlier at South Bend. I Intl The Irish. 12-1, lost a 12-game winning streak after breaking ; UCLA’s all-time skein of 88. and the No. I national ranking undoubtedly will return to the 15-1 team of Coach John Wooden. whose club seeks an eighth I consecutive national championships. Big Cushion Wooden’s team has a new streak, three games old, and a new star—17-year-old Johnson, who was a surprise starter as Wooden had said ht would stick to his usual lineup, even after Marques scored 20 points in relief against Santa Clara Friday night. No freshman had started for Wooden in 22 years. Wilkes scored 18 of his 20 in the first half, when UCLA built a 16-point lead at one Johnson came out shooting to hii 14 of his 16 points after intermission. Marques after the Notre Dame game,’’ Wooden revealed, “when I felt there were some things that needed shoring up ” Wooden wanted more rest rength after the Irish outrebounded UCLA 38-39 at South Bend This time UCLA had the big edge, 43-29 Johnson had only four caroms but Wooden and Phelps agreed that his presence was helpful even when he didn't come down with the ball. John Shumate. Notre Dame’s 6-9 center, had 25 points but only five rebounds He said the key to defeat was the third foul whistled against forward Adrian Dantlev in the first half, which made Shumate work the boards with little help. “Now,” said Wooden.

Bob Commmgs said Rob stopped in to see him but said he couldn’t come out for football because he hopes to be in Iowa law school this fall . . .

Commings plans to use two tight ends much ot the time, which means Billy Schultz probably will be shifted from split end to halfback . .Iowa is trying to land a promising QB who played under Don Dobrino I Commings’ teammate at Iowa) at Gillespie, IIL, south of Springfield . . “Our strongest department right now seems to be the defensive secondary,” said Commings, “as we should have almost everyone back. There are some fine players and hitters there Rick Penney (jammed neck) and Bobby Elliott (broken arm) have recovered, t»x». That little Elliott looks like a good one. He’s a hitter, and he’s smart enough to be a coach. I didn't know whether to play him or hire hun.” OOO Quoting Darrell Royal, Texas football coach, on the subject of recruiting abuses “I used to think everything I heard was ex i.ggerated But we’ve had too many people come here who told us what people offered them You’re out there trying to sell yourself and your school, and the guy ain’t hearing a word you're saying. All he’s wondering about is when you’re going to start talking money ” Although they lost by one at Notre Dame, the Bruins were solid 16-point favorites in the rematch UCLA lost an 11-point lead in the last 3 1 ? minutes in the defeat, but there was no way they would blow a 26-point cushion when Walton fouled cut with 5:39 to play. The two-time college player of the year had 32 points, ll rebounds and 7 assists when he got his fifth foul. He flashed the victory sign to his bench and trotted off to the locker room to have his knees, bothered by tendinitis, receive customary ice treatment. Wooden said his Bruins are No. I and he got no argument from Digger Phelps, the Notre Dame coach who noted “Walton is super, a super player. He really turned it on.
