Iowa, Illinois lead Big

Ten roundball race

By AL SHACKELFORD
A five-way race is shaping up'
in the Big Ten as the season
heads down the stretch, but un-
fortunately for Wolverine fans,
Michigan is not one of the con-
tenders.
The Wolverines, five-time los-
ers in conference play, are not
even in a position to play a
spoilerrole, as they have only
two games left with a contend-
ing team, both with Minnesota.
Michigan Coach John O r r
sees Illinois as "the definite fav-
orite" for the title. "Illinois has
the most favorable schedule of
the contenders," says Orr.
"They got both Purdue and
Iowa at home."
The Illini, 5-0, were not over-
whelming in beating Michigan
73-71 last January 17, and Orr
admits that he was more im-

pressed by Iowa, the only other
undefeated team at 4-0. Iowa's
schedule is working against
them, however, since they play
Illinois, Ohio State, and Pur-
due away during the remainder
of the season.
In comparing the two favor-
ites, Orr says, "Iowa has the
better offensive ball team, but
Illinois is stronger on defense."
Judging the two teams by
their performances against the
Wolverines, Iowa definitely em-
erges as the stronger They beat
Michigan 109-99 way back on
January 6 and seem to be get-
ting stronger as the season pro-
gresses.
They have good height, aver-
aging over 6-4, and as well-
balanced a team as there is in
the Big Ten. 6-7 forward John
Johnson popped in 34 points
against the Wolverines and
guards Chad Calabria and Fred
Brown both topped 20.
Brown looked as smooth as
any backcourt man Michigan
has faced this year, as he mov-
ed the ball well and was deadly
from outcourt.
Detroit's Ben McGilmer a n d
skinnier-than-skinny Glenn Vid-
novic, both veterans and depend-
able scorers, round out the
Hawkeye lineup.
Illinois' performance against

Michigan was in marked con-
trast to Iowa's: husky center,
Greg Jackson, threw in enough
soft hooks to keep Michigan at
bay, but the rest of the team
just played along numbly, mak-
ing turnover after turnover.
Star guard, Mike Price was a
special disappointment, getting
in early foul trouble and then
showing little except ai amazing
dexterity in dribbling with only
his left hand.
Purdue has been the league's
biggest disappointment but is
still within striking distance of
the leaders at 4-2, along w i t h
Ohio State and Minnesota.
The Boilermakers are a little
thin on manpower this year but
have the Big Ten's premier
gunner-scorer in Rick Mount,
averaging 41 points a game in
the conference.\Mount destroyed
Michigan last Saturday,
by throwing in 53 points, and
got a lot of help from teammates
George Faerber and Bob Ford.
But as Coach Orr says of Pur-
.due, "They'll have to pull off
an upset somewhere." The Boil-
ermakers play Illinois and Ohio
State away and get Iowa and
Illinois against at home before
the season's over.
Ohio State and Minnesota
rate outside changes at the Big
Ten crown, although Orr s a y s

Minnesota is "not even a con-
tender." Minnesota has a killer
schedule remaining, getting the
three top contenders and Mich-
igan away, but with high-scor-
ing Ollie Shannon getting back
in the groove, the Gophers could
at least screw some of the other
contenders.
OSU has failed to jell t h 1 s
year despite the presence of
Jody Finney, Jim Cleamons and
Dave Sorenson, but has a com-
paratively easy schedule. They
meet Purdue and Iowa at home
before journeying to- Iowa on
March 3.
The Big Ten championship is
likely to be decided on Febru-
ary 17 when, Iowa and Illinois
tangle, and February 21, when
the two contenders play Ohio
State and Purdue respectively.
Another likelihood is that the
Big Ten individual scoring mark
of 57 by former Purdue ace Dave
Schellhause will be shattered by
Mount as he tries to shoot the
Boilermakers into the champion-
ship and the NCAA tournament.
Whatever happens, of course,
may have to be considered anti-
climactic; the Wolverines h a v e
struck out.

In the
last twenty years,
only one newspaper
has won more
Pulitzer Prizes
than The
Des Moines Register

HE Model Eleven is stereophonic. It can fill a
living room with the kind of sound once avail-
able only from massive, expensive and decid-
edly unportable sound systems. As a matter of fact if
we hadn't been able to make it do that we wouldn't
have built it. You can take any portable with you; but
how many can you take seriously?
