But what about Alcindor? Seattle's Lionel Purcell says run on him. Bob Boyd, whose Southern California team came closest to beating UCLA, advocates the ploy he used in that game: "Be ball-control-conscious," he says. "And you must zone and double-team Lew." Pete Newell, the California athletic director, thinks that's ridiculous "What good does it do," he asks, "putting a man in front of Alcindor so he can play his belly button?" Newell also votes against a press, because the UCLA guards, notably Mike Warren, would break it in a moment. Says Red Auerbach: "You might be able to congest the middle." Pause. "No, Alcindor is so big and strong, he'd still get the ball and you would be just fouling and fouling trying to keep him from getting it."
