Earvin (Magic) Johnson playing against Larry Bird during the igyg N. CA. A. tournament.

SALT LAKE CITY, March 26ichigan State grounded The Bird with a touch o Magic and a magnificent zone defense tonight to win its first National Collegiate basketball championship and end Indiana State’s chance to achieve an unbeaten season.

Despite a heavy load of personal fouls that created serious problems down the stretch, the Spartans held fast to an early lead and beat the Sycamores, 75-64, in the final of the 41st National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament before 15,41c persons in the Special Events Center of the University of Utah. The loss was the onh one for Indiana State in 34 games this season. Michigan State finished with a 26-6 record.

Earvin (Magic) Johnson, who played the entire second half with three personal fouls was his usual spectacular self, scoring 24 points for the winners. Larry Bird, the big man for Indiana State with a three-year career average of more than 30 points a game, was kept to only 19 points, his lowest scoring game in five N. C.A. A. tournament contests.

As a result, Indiana State, the eighth undefeated team to reach the final, became only the second of them to lose in the championship game. Ohio State was the first when the Buckeyes were losers to Cincinnati in 1961.

Michigan State had been to three previous N. C.A. A. tournaments and only on( previous Final Four, a semifinal loss to North Carolina in 1957. With tonight’s victory, the Spartans gave the Big Ten Conference a sweep of the two major post-season college tourneys. Indiana won the National Invitation Tournament last Wednesday.

In winning the title, Michigan State became only the second team to do so with as many as six losses for the season. Kentucky did it with six losses in 1958 and Marquette with seven in 1977.

But there was no beating the Michigan State defense during this tournament anc there was little any team could do to stop the fast offense triggered by the magic of Johnson’s passing.

This defense stopped Bird after no other team could do so in this tourney. The 6-9 senior had scored 22, 29, 31 and 35 points in his four previous tourney games. What’s more, Michigan State closed down the Indiana State passing lanes, and held Bird tc only two assists.

“We defended him with an adjustment and a prayer,” coach Jud Heathcote said.

A couple of times during the first half Bird got to the top of his jump and could not decide whether to shoot or pass off. This led to missed shots and missed passes as the Bird hit only 7 of 21 field-goal attempts—33 percent. He had hit 53 percent before tonight.

Although it was the defense that turned the tables on Indiana State, Michigan Stat< got off to another of its spectacular offensive shows early in the game. This enabled the Spartans to go in front by 16 points in the first two minutes of the second half.

Through it all, Heathcote was obviously concerned about Bird. “I thought every shoi the Bird took would go in,” the Michigan State coach said.

Indiana State’s man-to-man defense didn’t appear to bother Johnson. He made one of the game’s most exciting moves when he drove the baseline around Alex Gilbert only to be facing Bird, standing his ground under the basket.

Kelser was coming down the lane to Johnson’s left and the Michigan State sophomore faked a pass to Kelser. Bird took the fake and moved just a bit to defend Kelser coming into the basket. Johnson kept the ball and made an easy layup.

Such spectacular play may have been Johnson’s last for Michigan State. It is expected that the Lansing, Mich., athlete who stayed home to play college ball will declare hardship and be drafted into the pros for next season.

Yankees' Thurman Munson Killed Piloting His

Own Small Jet in Ohio

_ Jim Naughton

Mourners for Thurman Munson at Yankee Stadium on August 4, igjg.

Thurman Munson, the 32-year-old catcher and team captain of the New York Yankees, was killed yesterday when the plane he was piloting crashed short of the runway while trying to land at the Akron-Canton Airport in Ohio.

Two passengers who were flying with him were taken to local hospitals where they were reported in fair condition.

Munson’s Cessna Citation twin-engine jet crashed outside the perimeter of the airport and came to rest 200 feet north of runway 19 at 3:02 p. m., Eastern daylight time, according to the Akron police.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said that the plane had lost its wings and burst into flames after the crash, resulting in injuries to two occupants and the death of the third.

One of the two passengers, David Hall, 32, of Canton, who first taught Munson tc fly, was reported in fair condition with burns on his arms and hands at the Akron Regional Burn Center at Childrens Hospital. The other passenger, Jerry D. Anderson also of Canton, was reported in fair condition with burns of the face, arms and neck at Timken Mercy Hospital in Canton.

Munson, a native of Akron, often flew home during home stands and road trips to be with his family. A Yankee coach, Elston Howard, said Munson told him he was interested in running a commercial commuter airline and was studying for a special license.

The coach said Munson wanted to stay as close to his family as possible. “That’s why he told me he was flying home on his own plane on off days. He just said, ‘Ellie, 1 want to see my family.’ That’s what he told me.”

Munson, who batted over.300 five times and played on three Yankee pennant winners and two world championship teams, was the first Yankee captain since Lou Gehrig.

News of the death shocked the baseball world.

The Yankees’ principal owner, George Steinbrenner, said in a statement: “There’s very little 1 could say to adequately express my feelings at this moment. I’ve lost a dear friend, a pal and one of the greatest competitors I’ve ever known. We spent many hours together talking baseball, and business. He loved his family. He was our leader. The great sport that made him so famous seems so very small and unimportant now.” Billy Martin, the Yankee manager, said: “For those who never knew him and didn’t like him, 1 feel sorry for them. He was a great man, for his family, friends and all the people who knew and loved him, my deepest sympathy. We not only lost a great competitor, but a leader and a husband and devoted family man. He was a close friend, 1 loved him.”

Commissioner Bowie Kuhn called the crash “an almost indescribable loss.”

Munson was an all-America catcher at Kent State in 1968. He came to the Yankee: in 1969 and was rookie of the year in 1970. He won a Gold Glove Award in 1973, 1974 and 1975. He won the American League Most Valuable Player Award in 1976 and wa: named captain of the Yankees that year.
