W 22 L 1
Coach: Fred Taylor
Ranked No. 1 in the country all season, OSU combines a fast offense with excellent defense. It will break if permitted. Otherwise it quickly sets up plays around Lucas, who would rather feed teammates than shoot. This can hurt team when rest of the attack is off.
W 18 L8
Coach: Bones McKinney
A big team, averaging 6 feet 8 in the forecourt, the Deacons prefer to use a deliberate offense that lets its tall men get set for rebounds. Chappell, a very strong forward, is averaging 31 points a game. The team uses a variety of defenses, but leans to the man-to-man.
W 15 L 8
Coach: John Wooden
Consistent scoring from Green at one guard and excellent passing and floor leadership from Walt Hazzard at other guard give UCLAwell-balancedfast-break attack. Determined rebounding by the whole team makes up for lack of height. The biggest problem is a weak bench.
