By The Associated Press
Pairings were announced yester-
day for the major New Year's Day
bowl games.
In the Rose Bowl, Southern
California (9-1) will meet either
Indiana (8-1) or Minnesota (7-2)
depending on the outcome of this
weekend's action.
Tennessee (7-1) will go against
Oklahoma (7-1) in the Orange
Bowl in Miami.
In the Sugar Bowl, unbeaten
and untied Wyoming (10-0) is
slated to battle Louisiana State
University (5-3-1).
Bear Bryant's Alabama (7-1-1)
was chosen as one of the Cotton
Bowl participants with the oppos-
ing team to be announced soon.

Since for the first time in a few
years the Wolverines will not have
the big man up front, they are
forced 'to make a rotating offense
operational. The key to the suc-
cess of this type of offense lies in
quick forwards and quicker guards
with the ability to make up floor
space when the opposition is work-
ing an effective fast break and the
guard is caught under his own
basket by the rotation.
The guard on any basketball
team is responsible for a great deal
mnore than putting himself in the
way of a fast break. He must be
>ne of the best ball handlers on
the team. In many cases he must
be the floor general, setting the
tempo for the game and calling
offensive maneuvers.
On top of all this, he should be
fast enough to play glue when it
comes time to defend against op-
posing guards.
Fortunately
Fortunately for head coach Dave
Strack, the Wolverines seem to be
blessed with just such a battalion
of guards.
Senior Jim Pitts is the man that
Strack will rely on most heavily to
take command of the team whilef
in battle during the rough Big Ten
season ahead. Pitts played reg-
ularly last year and has the ex-
perience necessary for a goodt
guard in an explosive league liket
the Big Ten.
In addition to his more thant
handling abilities and speed, Pitts
at 6-3 can rebound with the best1
in the conference. He relies main-t
ly on sheer determination to powert
himself over, and sometimes
through, the opposition. Last year1
Pitts averaged about 16 points a
game and most of his scoring was
garnered while close to the basket.

Pitts' amazing ability to work
himself in close enough for the
good shot and his fine jumper have
made him a perfect guard for the
rota ng offense.'
Working with Pitts at the other
guard position is the smallest but
fastest man on the team, junior
Ken Maxie. Maxie is one of those
players who brings the tempo of
the game to himself. He is so fast
that half the time he doesn't touch
the floor and the other half he's
touching every single splinter.
When Maxie decides to go }into
his flying act at a given part of
the game, he simply pulls off a
nifty little steal and bolts his way
down the court. With his quick
hands and great speed he has the
ability to break any game wide
open.
Then, of course, there is the

JIM PITTS

other half, the half where he cov-
ers every'splinter. Even though he
is only 5-10 it is not surprising to
see Maxie breaking out of the pile-
up around the opposing basket like
a rabbit from the briars, leaving
his feet at the foul line, jetting
across the court, touching a few
splinters to get up higher and
sending a pretty jump shot scorch-
ing through the cords. If he misses,
he'll manage to get where the ball
is quicker than anyone else.
Maxietalso hs great passing
ability. It's not surprising to see
the ball darting out of his hands
and into the hands. of one of his
teammates in the open. All this
makes Maxie an asset to any bas-
ketball team, rotating offense or
no rotating offense.
The Wolverines will also be able
to call on the services of three fine
Guards to complement the work
of Pitts and Maxie.
Mike Maundrell has a good out-
side shot from almost anywhere
and he is a better than adequate
ball handler. Maundrell also has
the strength to play well under the
basket.
Sophomore Rick Bloodworth has
the potentital of being a fine floor
general. He displayed a cool head
throughout last year's freshmen
season and he knows when to let
the team run and when to slow
things down. Bloodworth may see
a lot of action this season. He has
a great eye and hands fast enough
to put the ball where he wants it.
Hank
Mark Henry, another sophomore,
will also be available. He is an ex-
tremely aggressive defender and
can shoot the eyes out of the bas-
ket if he's given the opportunity.
What all this adds up to remains
to be seen. If Pitts and Maxie can
live up to their potential under the
heavy fire of Big Ten conference
play, Strack's rotating offense just
may work as planned.
Rebounding strength will be hurt
a little by the absence of the big
man in the post position, but most
of the time there will be four men
