Attendance was the big loser at the NCAA Midwest Regional basketball tournament after a sure-handed team from St. John's won routinely, 91-74, over a clumsy bunch of Ohio State Buckeyes. At least three-fifths of the crowd of 30,461 Friday night at the Pontiac Silverdome must have been from neighboring Ohio and will not be returning for Sunday's region final against Duke. Goodby, Columbus. They saw the Midwest's top-seeded team take the worst beating of Ohio State's NCAA tournament history.

The former home of the Syracuse Orangemen was the 9,600-seat Manley Fieldhouse, which had a student section called "The Zoo."
