But the venerable Meyer will probably have a tougher time reaching the Final Four in 1980 even though DePaul is a better team this year than last. That’s because the Blue Demons are again plotted in the West Regional and face a possi ble rematch with UCLA in their opening round game. DePaul has a 26-1 record, a No. 1 national ranking and a forward the NBA would love to have — 6-foot-7 sophomore Mark Aguirre. But the Blue Demons have incur red the wrath of mighty UCLA in two straight meetings. DePaul whip ped UCLA in the title game of the West Regional last March, 95-91, and then beat up on the Bruins in a rematch last December in the in UCLA’s own Pauley Pavilion, 99-94. DePaul and UCLA were two of 25 teams awarded at-large berths Sun day for the 42nd annual tournament, which will have its largest field ever at 48 teams. Play begins Thursday night with subregional games at Greensboro, N.C. (East); West Lafayette, Ind. (Mideast); Lincoln, Neb. (Midwest) and Ogden, Utah (West). The only snag in a possible De- Paul-UCLA rematch is Old Domin ion, the ECAC South representa tive. The Bruins meet the Monarchs in a subregional game at Tempe, Ariz., Friday night with the winner advancing against DePaul, the top- seeded team in the West, Sunday. 'It is, of course, difficult to beat the same team twice in a single sea son, Meyer said. “Your players have confidence that they can win on a neutral court after beating the same team on the road earlier in the year. Of course, UCLA has to beat a fine Old Dominion team. “We beat Marquette in the regu lar season and had to beat them again in the playoffs. One thing, you can count on UCLA being sky-high for us. If you can get over that first round game, then it sometimes gets easier. We ll be ready.” Other teams awarded the top seeds were Syracuse in the East, Kentucky in the Mideast and LSU in the Midwest. The Midwest appears to be the blockbuster regional this year with four teams ranked in the Top 10: No. 4 Louisville, No. 6 LSU and No. 9 co-holders North Carolina and Mis souri as well as No. 15 Notre Dame, No. 18 Texas A&M and Missouri Val ley champion Bradley. The expanded field, up from the 40 teams of last year and the 32 of two years ago, allowed the NCAA to lift the lid on the number of representa tives each conference could send. The previous ceiling had been two. The chief beneficiary this year was the ACC with five teams: Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Maryland and Clemson. The Big Ten and Pac-10 had four teams apiece and the Southeast and Metro conferences two apiece; At-large invitations were ex tended to Syracuse, Marquette, Iowa, North Carolina State, George town, Tennessee and Maryland in the East; Florida State, Washington State, Purdue, Virginia Tech, St. John’s and Kentucky in the Mideast; Alcorn State, South Alabama, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Arkansas and Missouri in the Midwest; and DePaul, UCLA, Arizona State, Clemson, Utah State and Ohio State in the West. All-tourney team picked United Press International DALLAS — Texas A&M’s David Britton was named the most valuable player of the Southwest Conference basketball tournament, but Arkan sas U.S. Reed received the most votes for the all-tournament team announced Monday.

Rice coach heads for A&M United Press International HOUSTON — Rice football coach Mike Rader has resigned after only five weeks on the job, apparently to accept a similar position in the Texas A&M athletic department, Rice head coach Ray Alborn said Monday.
