Joints, in leading the varsity to
No Matilda, ter is no aie n n th

Russell on the freshman basketball
team. That fact became quite ob-
vious last night as Dave Strack's
varsity went on its annual turkey
hunt and knocked the stuffings
out of the baby Wolverines, 104-
90.
What the freshmen couldn't
match was the sheer strength of
the varsity on the backboards. The
older players outrebounded the
flaying frosh almost two to one,
gathering in 46 rebounds to 26 for
the freshmen. In particular, Rudy
Tomjanovich was just a little too
strong and a little too quick for
the youngsters to cope with.
Called "a real bear on the
boards" by Michigan coach Dave
Strack after the game, Tomjano-
vich gobbled in a game high 12
rebounds and fired home sixteen
points to team with Dennis Stew-

were going to get.
Rodney Ford, a highly touted
freshman from Pemberville, Ohio,
had a horrendous night, hitting
only one of eleven from the floor.
but his lackluster performance was
more than made up for by two
other swift moving freshmen. Dan
Fife and Tim Nicksic, each of
whom blitzed the net for twenty
points.
Tomjanovich started the varsity
scoring by tapping in a Ken Maxey
drive shot and the freshmen never
could catch up.
Largely due to fine outside
shooting by Tim Nicksic., who
scored seven of the first eight
points for the frosh, the freshman

stayved close. trailing only 1 1-9 at
one point. It was the clo(sest they
we1c to come all night.
The varsity. which up to this
point was turning over the ball
almost as fast as they rebounded
it 113 turnovels in the first 10
minutes . suddenly caught fire and
reeled off ten straight points on
the shooting of Ste:wart and Tom-
janovich to take a commanding
21-9 lead.
( losing In
Dan File countered for the
Frosh with two looping twenty-
five foot swishes and added a foul
shot to close the gap to 21-15, but
then Willie Ed ards replaced Bob
Sullivan for the varsity and im-
mediately crammed in a rebound
off the boards that set the tone
for the rest. of the game.

Edwards combined with the
hot-handed Dave McClellan to
boost the varsity into a 31-15 lead.
For the rest of the game the
varsity maintained a mor. or less
twenty point lead, but as Strack
said after the game, "If we really
had wanted to we could have
beaten t hem by just about any
score"
In the second half Ken Maxey,
the varsity's dimunitive 5'9" guard,
played the role of the thief, twice
stealing the ball from Fife in a
twenty second span to bring about
varsity scores.
Freshman Mike Rafferty was the
real rnover of the frosh squad as,
time and time again throughout
the gamr, hr set up freshman
scores with his play making and
passing ability.

Strack though not exuberant
about his squad's play, managed
a v ide grin when asked about how
it stacked up to last year's team.
"We've got experience going for
us and, of course, TomjanoviclI will
make a big difference, he said. "I
think you could see that tonight.
He rea]-y was good on the boards.
He played like a sophomore will
in the- .st half but settled down
in the second period. I was glad
to see tha.
"And Pitts. well, he's strong He
was at or-aId a good deal of the
time tonight and did a credible
job.We intend to us- hun up front
quite a bit this season and I don't
see how it can ido anything but
help u. Pitts crammed in 16
points and, as the only senior of
the starting five added stability
to the varsity attack.

Somewhat unnoticed but highly
siniflcant for the coming season
was the varsity accuracy from the
foul line. Strack's crew gunned in
11 of 12 charity tosses and that is
ubout as close to perfection as you
can be without actually having it.
This was the last game played
In Yost Field House and even the
announcer seemed to give a sigh
of relief. About Kentucky, whom
the Wolverines face Saturday,
Strack said he thought his squad
would give them a credible fight.
"We're not going to lie over and
play dead for the Baron," Strack
said.

1y The Associated Press
Indiana, which had dropped out
of the national ratings following
a disappointing loss to Minnesotta
two weeks ago, roared back out
of nowhere after an upset 19-14
victory over Purdue last Saturday
to capture fourth place in the
final AP sports writer poll. Indi-
ana will encounter top-ranked
USC in its first chance in the
Rose Bowl.
John McKay's Trojans were
awarded 474 points and first place
to 436 for second-rated Tennes-
see. Southern California, which
finished its regular season with a
9-1 record, received 36 out of 49
and first place ballots.
Tennessee, 8-1 with one regular
season game remaining before its
Orange Bowl date with Oklahoma,
received 11 first place votes. Okla-
homa was third with 311 points,
followed by Indiana and Notre
Dame.
Notre Dame got one first place

vote and so did Sugar Bowl-bound
Wyoming, which finished sixth
with 222 points. Rounding out the
Top Ten are Oregon State, Ala,-
bama, Purdue, and Penn State.
Besides Indiana, Penn State is
the only new member of the Top
Ten. It was a last-chance situa-
tion for the Gator Bowl-boundE
'Nittany Lions, who had not been
in the Top " Ten before at any
time this season.
The Top Ten, with first place
votes in parentheses, season records
and points on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

MEXICO CITY - A flurry of,
trades spiced up the baseball
meetings last night with three
swaps being announced within
minutes of each other.
In the biggest deal, Los Angeles
filled its gap at short-stop by ac-t
quiring Zoilo Versalles from the
Minnesota Twins. Right-hander
Jim "Mudcat" Grant also moved
to LA in the trade with the Twins
getting catcher John Roseboro
and relief pitchers Ron Perranoski
and Bob Miller,
Pittsburgh and Detroit swap-
ped a pair of right-handers with
Dennis Ribant moving to the
Tigers and Dave Wickersham
going to the Pirates.
Cleveland picked up veteran
knuckleball pitcher Eddie Fisher{
from Baltimore in exchange for
left-hander John O'Donoghue.
The Indians also asquired minor
league pitcher Bob Scott and out-
fielder John Scruggs from the
Orioles and sent short-stop Gor-
don Lund to the Baltimore organ-
ization.
Versalles was the biggest name
traded. The 27-year-old shortstop

was the American League's Most
Valuable Player in 1965 when the
Twins won the pennant. He bat-
ted .273 that year, leading thef
league in doubles, triples and runs
scored.
H1e slipped to .249 the followig
season and dropped to .200 last
yeari when he made 30 errors.
Gran.t like Versalles, played a
major role in the Twins' 1965
pennant victory but fell off the
last two seasons.
Cal Ermer. manager of the
Twins, said Roseboro would re-
place Earl Battey, who has retired,
as the Twins' No. 1 catcher, and
that Perranoski and Miller would
remain relief specialists with Min-
nesota.
Ribant ,as 9-8 with the Pirates
last year. mostly as a starter. He
had a 4.08 ERA in 172 innings.
Wickersham, 32, was 4-5 with
a 2.75 ERA as a reliever with the
Tigers. He returns to the Pitts-
burghi"orani'ation where he spent

his minor league career from 1955-
1959.
Fisher is also reliever and was
4-3 in 46 games with the Orioles.
O'Donoghue was 8-9 with a 3.23
ERA starting and relieving for the
Indians.
