By BILL LEVIS
On the court, Ken Maxey, a
5'9" dynamo, acts like the spark-
plug for a Michigan basketball
team that has had its troubles
winning this year. During prac-
tice, he keeps the team loose,
parading around like a clown or
court jester.
But once off the hardwood, the
Chicago native's manner sobers
considerably. The junior guard
appears amazingly quiet, shy and,
at times, extremely pensive.
School work bothers him and
his thoughts often wander to the
world outside. As a freshman, he
was the only student in physical
education to make the honor roll
(3.5 or better). "I did so well be-
cause I was afraid," said an em-
barrassed Maxey.
Concerning the world, he knows
it is not all roses and he sincere-
ly wants to change it in his own
small way.
"I think I have a realist atti-
tute towards society though it all

doesn't seem logical to me," he had a chance to amuse themselvesI

moved on to Carver High School
and to a starting berth on per-
haps some of the greatest teams
in high school history. His fresh-
man year, he moved right onto
the varsity and a starting five
that featured four future major
college stars including Michigan's
greatest player and 1966 College
Basketball Player of the Year:
Cazzie Russell.
Along with Maxey and Russell,
Carver boasted a starting quintet
including former Iowa captain
Gerry Jones and Bradley's Joe
Allen, who currently leads the na-
tion in field goal accuracy.
That team had one of the great-
est seasons in Chicago history and
came within one point of win-
ning the state championship. The
next year, with Russell gone, Car-
ver became only the second Chi-'
cago team in history to win the
Illinois State Championship.
When Maxey arrived on the

changed for him and for the Wol-
verines. The great Michigan teams
of the past three years had been
depleted and Maxey was forced
to play on a Wolverine team that
I could only manage an 8-16 record.
After playing for a winner for
so long, Maxey found it hard to
get up for games. "It's not so hard
playing during the contest but it's
hard during practice to enjoy
what you're doing. But a losing
team makes you work harder."
The biggest playing change for
Maxey was switching from an
outside shooting guard in high
school to a playmaker in college.
As a sophomore he saw plenty of
action, hitting for a 6.5 point av-
erage as he amazed the crowds
with his aggressiveness and
hustle. But to the horror of the
fans and' coach Dave Strack,
Maxey lost the ball with errank
passes about as many times as he
scored.
Settling Experience
The junior guard has settled
down this year and he contributes
his improvement "to more con-
centration and experience." Whilei
he has not increased his scoring

small, his height disadvantage
disappearing against the taller
