Rudy Battles Lafayette in Rivalry

By DOUG HELLER
So what's going on after the
basketball game?
Following the kid stuff, things
will get serious for a host of fu-
ture Olympians swimming in, the
annual Indiana-Michigan show-
down in Matt Mann Pool at 3:30
p.m.
Hopefuls from at least six dif-
ferent countries will compete in
this, the top meet of the swim-
-ming season.
Indiana has Kevin Berry, 1964
gold medal winner after he upset
last year's Michigan captain Carl
Roble in Tokyo. Berry, a native of
Australia, was never able to beat
Roble again, but will certainly be
in Mexico City representing the
Land from Down Under.
Aussie's Choice
Also representing Australia and
the Hoosiers is Bob Windle, a
Hoosier 'standout in the distance
events.
Both Berry and Windle may be
the best in Australia, but they
don't hold the top spot on their
own college team.
Sophomore Ron Jacks of British

Columbia, Canada, has taken over
the number one place in the but-
terfly, and is guaranteed an Oly-
mic position for his country.
Sophomore Fred Southward is
a United States Olympic hopeful
and has been slightly more im-
pressive than Windle. After Win-
dle's number two position is Tito
Perez, another sophomore. He's
from Puerto Rico which has an
Olympic team independent of the
United States.
Mexican Diver
The last foreign student from
his own Olympic team is Luis
Nino de Rivera, a diver from
Mexico.
However, on his own squad, he's
lost in the crowd. After gradua-
ting Ken Sitzberger, America's
best diver last year, the Hoosiers
retain junior Win Young, second
to Sitzberger a year ago, and have
brought up sophomore Jim Henry.
Both seem cinch Olympians for
the United States.
Michigan, naturally, won't ex-
actly be shut out of the Olympics,
Tom Arusoo will -team with Jacks
on Canada's butterfly team. Diver

Peter Emond also is from Can-
ada. Juan Bello, Michigan's first
legitimate individual medley man
in years, is from Peru.
This brings us down to the
meet. Arusoo has to swim against
Jacks today in what should be a
great duel. Bello will be up
against veteran Bill Utley in
another really rough race. Mich-
igan sophomore backstroker Bill
Dorney will take on World Record
holder Charlie Hickcox, 'a n d
should be able to stay close to
him. The last three, of course,
are United States Olympic team
hopefuls.
Meanwhile, the rest of the Wol-
verines will have their hands full.
Sophomore distance man Gary
Kinkead says "I searched their
whole team for a weakness and
couldn't find one."
Coach Stager elaborated: "This
is one of Indiana's greatest teams.
And of course, they're always tre-
mendous."
After all, he's talking about the
conference champions.
Seven straight times.

with a man-to-man defense. Nev-
ertheless, both left open the pos-
sibility of using a zone. State en-
joyed a 33-29 half-time advant-
age over Illinois last Saturday,
but folded in the second half when
the Illini reverted to a 1-3-1 de-
fense to beat State 66-56. The
Spartans employed a man-to-man
defense through the game.
The big man-to-man matchup
would probably feature Spartan
star Lee Lafayette against Michi-
gan scoring leader Rudy Tomi on-
avich, who is scoring at a twenty

In wrestling action this after-
noon, "Blue Power" will undergo
a harsh test of its high ranking.
Michigan will take on North-
western at Evanston, Illinois,
which is just a few miles from
Lagrange. For those of you who
don't remember, LaGrange was
the scene of the Midlands Tourna-

ment where, last December, the
Wolverine grapplers were bested
by the Wildcats. Michigan took a
fifth, while Northwestern finished
in third place.
Up, Up and Away
The Wildcats are coming with
fine showings at the Midlands,
as well as four dual meet victories
against Minnesota, Purdue, Mc-
Murray College, and Wisconsin.
Northwestern Coach Ken Kraft
says of the 1968 Wildcats: "They
are the best team I have ever
had."
They will get a chance to prove
him right later this year as they
take on Oklahoma and Oklahoma
State, ranked second and third
nationally.
Today, though, they have to get
by Michigan, and to do it, they

plan on taking the lower and1
middle weights. This is where the
Wolverines are shakey, as they
have their youth concentrated1
there.s
Northwestern will send up the
following artillery: At 123, a fa-
vorite at Northwestern, Wayne
Watson, who at the Midlands
Tourney was upset by Michigan's1
Dave Rubin in a close 3-1 de-;
cision. This is definitely a revenge1
snatch and Watson is said to beI
even stronger than before.1
In the 130 lb. bracket will be
Ed Dumas who lost by default,
an injured knee, to another Wol-
verine, Lou Hudson. The knee ist
healed but not the memory off
the loss, and Dumas will be tough
in both respects.
At 145 is a bright spot in Bill
t

Laursen, who has already beat
Wisconsin's Mike Gluck, NCAA
runnerup. He is definitely not one
to overlook just because the score-
card says he's a sophomore.
In the 160 category will be
either Russ Schneider or Otto
Zeman. Schnieder was 152 champ
at Midlands where he beat the
man who beat Michigan's Fred
Stehman. Zeman lost a close one
last year in the Big Ten Tourna-
ment to Michigan wrestler Jim
Kamman, a Big Ten and NCAA
champ.
One of the "near-heavies" at
177, is Wildcat Seth Norton, who
did very well before being elimin-
ated at Midlands.
Game Plan
The Northwestern game plan is
to take at least three weights
outright, somewhere in the middle
with their "strong" men Zeman,
Norton, Laursen, and Watson.
Michigan will send their young,
but tough squad to face this Wild-
cat challange headed by Dave
Porter at heavyweight, junior
Pete Cornell, and senior Bill
Waterman; and in. the middle
weights: senior Wayne Hanson,
Fred Stehman, and Jim Sanger, a
sophomore; and in the three light
weights: junior Geoff Henson,
Lou Hudson, a sophomore, and
Dave Rubin at the bottom at 123.

Low for Lee
Lafayette hit his low point of
the season when he only managed
six points against Illinois last
week. Despite this performance he
should enjoy a rebounding ad-
vantage over Tom ianovich and o
Stewart. In the past, Michigan's
big men have had difficulty ad-
justing to playing on the inside.
The key to the game could be
the ability of Stewart and Tom-
janovich to score from outside.
If Michigan can draw Lafayette
outside it will open the door for 4
Pitts to move inside and take
advantage of his fine rebounding
talents, and his ability to score
off the offensive boards.
If Sullivan plays, this advantage
will be more important because he
too is a scrapper and has the
ability to score from the inside.
An overflow crowd of 14,000 fans
is expected for the Big Ten season
home opener, and if previous
Michigan-Michigan State games
are any indication, the game will
end up going all the way down
to the wire.
