Guards gain ground on court behemoths

The Wiall

The year of the big man in
college basketball has passed with
the graduation of Lew Alcindor
and a squadron of comparatively
little men are dominating the 1969-
70 season.
Take a look around the country.
Only a few big ballplayers a r e
anywhere near Alcindor's class,
notably 7-2 Artis Gilmore of Jack-
sonville, 6-9 Sam Lacey of New
Mexico State and 6-11 Bob Lanier
of St. Bonaventure.
Guards are grabbing all the
headlines. Pete Maravich of LSU
and Calvin Murphy of -Niagara
are winding up great careers and
Maravich is getting more publicity
than David and Julie put to-
gether. Charlie Scott of North
Carolina and Austin Carr of Notre
Dame are two more superb guards;
and these two along with Mara-
vich and Murphy, may be the four
best ballplayers in the country.
Maravich, now the leading major
college scorer of all time, stands
by hinself as the finest player
in the country. He has no appar-
ent weakness: his scoring average
of almost fifty points per (game

ter, he plays defense when he has
I don't think it makes m u c h
difference whether you play man-
to-man or zone or what," K e n -
tucky Coach Adolph Rupp says of
Maravich. "He's just too tough.
"I wouldn't let my boys shoot
from some of, the places he does,"
continues Rupp, "but by golly,
they go in." Rupp's statements
were prompted by Pistol Pete's
throwing in 55 points against his
Wildcats earlier this season.'
Next in the procession of stars
is stubby Calvin Murphy of Niag-
ara, who almost by himself is lead-
ing the Purple Eagles to their fin-
est season in years. Murphy is a
super-shooter who can bomb in
rockets of thirty-five feet w i t h
amazing accuracy and drive just
as well. Calvin can dunk the ball
with both hands, no mean feat for
a man 5'10". He also twirls a damn
fine baton.
After Maravich and Murphy
come a whole herd of guards, all
just about equally fantastic in
ability. Charlie Scott of N o r t h
Carolina is familiar to basketball
fans for his NCAA television per-
formances of last year, where his
spectacular displays of clutch
shooting should have won him an
Emmy. He is a natural at 6'5", has
great inside moves and is that
rarity, a fine defensive player. His

the boards hard. 'Carr fired in
37 last December 3 against Mich-
igan in Notre Dame's 87-86 win.
Charlie Davis of Wake Forest,
Dean Meminger of Marquette and
Rick Mount of Purdue make it
tough to pick the nation's fifth-
best guard. Davis might be called
a darkhorse, but only because
Wake Forest receives little national
publicity; he's got all the goods.
Deadly from anywhere on t h e
court, Davis has engineered Wake
Forest to upsets over North Caro-
lina and Davidson this season. All
that stands between him and
greatness is a few pounds: Char-
lie's lack of weight cuts down his
Meminger didn't score much in
Marquette's loss to Michigan ear-
lier this year, but impressed peo-
ple with his poise and natural
talent. He may be the best defen-
sive guard in America, has great
moves and gets up on the boards.
Meminger's biggest liability is an
inability to hit well from t h e
outside, something a man of his
size must do.
Another guard who needs no in-,
troduction is Rick Mount, w h o
ripped up Michigan last Saturday
with 53 points. Mount is all of-
fense though; once you get past
his great shooting ability there's
nothing left but his jock.
Some other top guards are Nate
"Tiny" Archibald from Texas at
El Paso, a great offensive play-
er cut from the same cloth as
Calvin Murphy; Michigan State's
Ralph Simpson, just a sophomore
but another great scorer; Mike
Casey of Kentucky, out most of
the year with a broken leg but
with two good years behind him;
John Vallely and Henry Bibby,
who give UCLA probabl the fin-
est pair of guards in the country;
Heywood Dotson of Columbia andj
Jeff Petrie of Princeton, the best
in the Ivy League; and from the
Big Ten, Mike Price of Illinois
and Fred Brown of Iowa.
Maravich, Murphy, Carr, Scott;
and the others are all great, but'
what messes your mind is thatj
there may be some other guards
hidden away at a small school,
who are just as good. Look at the1
Baltimore Bullets' EarlkMonroe<
(Winston-Salem) or the New Or-;

the pro scouts) are watching Mara-
vich and Company as they leave

.An end to a
mid-winter's dream
IN THE FEW WEEKS since the NCAA announced that its
members would be allowed to play an eleventh football game
this fall, Wolverine grid fans have been sustaining themselves
with dreams of an extra home game here in Ann Arbor.
These dreams have in turn spawned their rumors, and the
rumors have it that Michigan will play either Notre Dame (a
game that is slated to become part of the regular schedule later
this decade), or Southern Cal, on September 12 .in Michigan
Well, you would-be gridiron matchmakers can forget the
dreams and stop the rumors. The unofficial word is that there
will be no eleventh game in 1970.
The main obstacle to scheduling an extra game, according
to athletic director Don Canham, is a Big Ten rule which states
that a team may play only 10 football games a season, exclus-
ive of the Rose Bowl.
"The NCAA ruling doesn't really affect us," Canham says.
"The Big Ten rule takes precedence. The conference would have
to change its rule before we could schedule an eleventh game.
"Even if they should approve an eleventh game," adds Can-
ham, "they will most probably stipulate that the game must be
against another Big Ten school."
THE RULE WILL probably be discussed at a meeting of the
Big Ten faculty directors in March. However, the prospects for
a change in the rule this year are not too favorable. "It's get-
ting a little late to schedule a game," Canham explains.
However, Canham feels that the Big Ten will waive its 10
game only rule sometime in the near future, possibly as early
as 1971. He explains that there is a growing sentiment among
the conference reps for establishing a round-robin schedule in
the Big Ten, where every team in the conference would play
every other team once during the season.
"I don't think they're going to be able to have a round-
robin tournament unless they allow a school to add a game to
its schedule. As it is now, the main objection to a round-robin
is that it is too restrictive in regards to the number of non-con-
ference games a school can play.
"We (Michigan), for example, like to schedule some other
schools. We like to go out to the West Coast, and bring some
other teams in here." Under the present rule, a round-robin
would leave a school with an opportunity to play only one non-
conference opponent, exclusive of the Rose Bowl.
"ACTUALLY," CANHAM POINTS OUT, "allowing a team
to play an eleventh game would move the Big Ten closer to a
round-robin schedule, especially if that game was a Big Ten
game." The Big Ten has already approved an eight game con-
ference' schedule for 1983. According to Canham, adding an
eleventh game to the schedule would enable the Big Ten to set
up its eight game conference yslate much sooner.
If an eleventh game is added to the schedule, Canham is
enthusiastic about the idea of a round-robin tournament. "If
you're going to determine a conference champion," Canham
likes to say, "then the'only really fair way to do it is to have
each team play all the other teams."
The Wolverines' athletic director has a good point, and I
think most officials and possibly all the coaches around the Big
Ten would agree with him.
But it seems that the dream of a conference round-robin,
like the dream of an eleventh game in 1970, will have to be
stashed away for another winter.

dency to shoot in streaks from
the outside, but who's criticizing?

NEW YORK - College basket-
ball's three 'M' boys, Maravich,
Mount and Murphy, continued
their domination of the collegiate
scoring race again this week as
they held down three of the top
four spots.

who currently holds d o w n the
third spot, keeps the potent three-
some from holding the leading po-
Maravich, who this past Satur-
day became the highest scoring
player in history and earlier be-

/ew SonyFstereo!
The 6060 receiver. draws upon the famous Sony transistor know-how in its sen-'
sitive FET front end and 62-transistor circuit. The result is that even the weakest
fuzziest FM stations sound like the strong ones. And they don't get clobbered by
the strong ones. Stations you never knew existed come in crisp and clear. FM
stereo is superb. AM broadcasts are'richer. And tapes and records retain their;
original-performance brilliance.
The amplifier delivers a powerful 110 watts IHF into 8 ohms-all the power1
needed to drive any speaker system with plenty in reserve for difficult passages.
It reproduces the entire audio range without the slightest trace of distortion to
intrude upon the performance.
The 6060 is not only a pleasure to listen to, its appearance and operation make
it a pleasure to use and display in your home. It has all conveniences you'll ever
need: automatic stereo reception;.zero-center tuning meter; front-panel head-
phone jack; switches for.tape monitoring, muting, speaker*
selection, tape head or Aux. in put, loudness -the works.
Come in and hear the new Sony ST R-6060FW today.
