December 11, 1979 - ND takes down UCLA

By Olson

#4 ND hosted #7 UCLA.

The Irish were playing without injured senior Bill Hanzlik. In Bill's place in this game was frosh John Paxson.

Trailing by one late in the game, the Irish had the ball. The Bruins fouled Paxson - who hit 2 free throws to give the Irish a 1 pt lead. A few seconds later (and the Irish still up by 1), UCLA fouled Paxson again. John proceeded to hit 2 more free throws to give the Irish a 3 pt win.
