should be doing razor blade com-
mercials - he's the biggest
"SPOILER" of them all.
"There have been several times
in the past few years when we've
been in a position like Iowa was in
Saturday. It was nice to get back
at them for a change," said the
Michigan mentor.
His players had done the im-
possible - swiping a game from
Iowa in their own backyard. They
might have done even more dam-
age than that, because if the fa-
vored Buckeyes triumph in to-
night's play-off atrPurdue, Coach

be left holding a sliced-up champ-
ionship and not much else.
In the past two years, the Hawk-
eyes had only lost two games at
home, 'one of them by one point
in three overtimes. The seats of
the field house come right up to
the basketball court and it's
about as peaceful there as a Da
Nang foxhole.
"Oh, they were in a pretty fes-
tive mood at first," Strack remem-
bered of the crowd, "but they be-
gan to get a little apprehensive
when we took our big lead."
The Wolverines held a 16 point
advantage at one point during the
first half, and after it was chopped
to eight by halftime, they brought
it up to 16 again in the second
stanza.
Stunned
"They were stunned at the end,"
remarked Strack, "when the
Hawkeyes couldn't pull it out."
Iowa's last abortive shot, a %
floor length lob shot by Sam Wil-
liams, would have made a nice
fairytale out of the game, but
Sam's radar was a hair off target
and the ball bounced harmlessly
off the back rim.
"I don't think the basket would
have counted even if the ball had
gone in," Strack said, "but it sure
caught my breath."
The Wolverines were high Sat-

The automatic stick shift is an option:

But you do a little less.

Ken Maxey, 5'9" junior guard,
will be captain of next year's
basketball squad, it wasyan-
nounced. yesterday. Maxey, a
speedball starter out of Carver
High School in Chicago, aver-
aged 7.7 points a game this year.
He replaces senior Jim Pitts asj
captain of a Wolverine team
which finished the season tied
for sixth in the Big Ten race
with a 11-13 overall record.
Maxey should have plenty of
help next year as Pitts is the
only letterman Michigan will lose
this year by graduation.
urday night, and it took only the
trip to Iowa City to make them
.so.
"We weren't too happy about
the comment they made about how
much better conditioned they were
We knew we gave them an easy
win here in Ann Arbor, (99-86),
and we didn't want to do it
again," Strack explained.
Lay-Up
The Wolverine attack sported
a shot which they haven't used too
much this season-the lay-up. The
Wolverines empoyed their regu-
lar plays, but this game they ran
them to perfection.
"We were able to score when-
ever we wanted to at the begin-
ning of the game," Strack claim-
ed. "Pitts was leaving his man in
the nickle seats on some of the
plays."
Strack added, "It's not just
that we were getting more close-
in shots, but that we weren't miss-
ing them like we have in the past."
The Wolverine second half mar-
gin, which peaked at 16, dwindled
to almost nothing at the end of
the game. Why? Strack gives a
coupleof very good reasons.
Rudy's Ankle
"Jim Pitts had four fouls on him
even before the first half was
over. Then we lost Rudy Tomjian-
ovich early in the second half."
Tomjanovich left the court on
a stretcher with a badly injured
ankle. He was a victim of a com-
mon baketball maneuver called the
'switch.'
"Kenny Maxey was checking off
on Sam Williams and I switched
off my man to help out," said

Purdue Hosts
Iowa-OSU
Title Clash
LAFAYETTE ()--The Big ten's
first basketball playoff since 1908,
Iowa vesus Ohio State on Purdue's
neutral floor tonight, should be a
shoot-'em-up showdown.
Ohio State's Buckeyes hit 481
of 933 field goal attempts during
the regular conference season for
a league record average of 51.6 per
cent.
Iowa averaged under 45 per
cent but has the top individual
scorer still in business in the
league - 25.6 point average Sam
Williams. He was second only to
Purdue's Rick Mountduring the
regular campaign.
Iowa's Hawkeyes apparently had
the Big Ten crown and NCAA
tourney berth locked up going
into a home game with the Wol-
verines last Saturday, but Mich-
igan won 71-70, and knocked Iowa
into a 10-4 league tie with Ohio
State.
Under the old conference rule,
the NCAA bid would go to the
team which hadn't been in the
tourney for the longest time,
which would be Iowa.
But Iowa Coach Ralph Miller
conceded in Iowa. City yesterday
that the new playoff plan is the
only fair way to do it.
At the same time, Miller said,
"I really think Ohio State is in a
great position. They haven't had
any worries for a week and we've
been up, down and around the
horn."
The Big Ten berth in the Na-
tional Collegiate tourney is highly
coveted because the conference
leads all others in NCAA success-
es over 28 years of competition.
The Big Ten has won 67.5 per
cent of its games in the tourney
and produced four teams for the
national finals.

SPRING SPECIAL!

SAM WILLIAMS (53), Iowa's All Big Ten forward tries to make
a layrup over the head, of Michigan's Ken Maxey (44). The hand
in the upper right corner of the picture belongs to Michigan
sophomore Rudy Tomjanovich, who blocked Williams' shot and
injured his ankle one second after this picture was taken.

Tomjanovich yesterday. "I went up
to block Sam's shot and when I
came down I tripped over Mofaxey
and hit the ground."
But Tomjanovich doesn't antici-
pate much trouble from the ankle.
"I went down to see the doctor
for an x-ray. I'm waiting now for
the results. I was on crutches Sun-
day but I can walk on it now. I
think it's OK."
Stewart and Sullivan
With Tomjanovich on a stretcher
and Pitts hindered by four fouls,
rebounding duties fell to Dennis
Stewart and Bob Sullivan. The two
handled the job capably as Michi-
gan ended up with a 37-33 re-
bounding edge for the game.

now and it has helped us a lot,"
said Strack. "Sullivan also made
a lot bf fine plays and I don't
think his missed free throws de-
tracted from his over-all per-
formance."
Strack didn't stop with his
praises. "Kenny Maxey did a great
job on Williams when Pitts left
the court after his fourth foul; it
was about the best defensive job
all year on Sam."
Looking Back
Looking back at the game Strack
commented, "Iowa had everything
going for them. I know Miller said
his boys didn't hustle for him, but
that's not true, they hustled
plenty."
The Iowa win, coupled with vic-
tories over Minnesota, Purdue, and
Northwestern give the Wolverines
a streak they can carry into next
year. Strack said they proved to
themselves they have the talent
to win and predicted, "We'll be in
contention next year."
