DETROIT-If first impressions
mean anything, it appears from
the limited competition in yester-
ay's NCAA indoor track and field
competition that, as predicted, the
battle for the indoor team title will
indeed be between Kansas and

out Villanova Golden Boy Marty
Liqouri in the second heat of the
mile run.
From the onset, it seemed that

Kansas moved into a slight
15-13 lead over Villanova after
last night's seven individual
finals in the NCAA track meet.
Harvard and Wisconsin were
tied for third with nine points
eight as late as the three-quarter
Reaching the final quarter, Li-
, qouri made his move, moving up
swiftly but his attempts fell just
short as Smith won with a time
of 4:10.1.
Despite his second place fin-
ish, with a fine qualifying time of
4.10.4, it was nevertheless quite
apparent that the race was an
easy one for Ligouri and he ap-
,eared hardly winded at the
The Jayhawks' attempt to hang
on to their indoor title was rein-
forced by a 1-2-3 repeat perform-
ance finish for their three amaz-
ing shot putters, Karl Salb, Steve
Whilhelm and Doug Knop. Salb's
.Aheave of 67-21/2 smashed his own
NCAA indoor record by nearly
half a foot.
The Villanova challenge was
strengthened by speedy Larry
James' third consecutive 440 title
as he turned in a time of 48.3.
Another mile - the invitational

from Liqouri and company, as

Badgers lead Wolverines, 2-1

American record holder, repre-
senting the Pacific Coast Club, set
a new NCAA record of 4:00.1,
shaving .6 of a second off the old
Michigan's Gene Brown gave
the partisan fans something to
cheer about as he qualified for
the semi-finals in the 60-yard
dash, with a time of 6.2.

Another Wolverine, G o d f r e y
Murray, performed admirably as
he qualified for the quarter finals
in the 60-yard high hurdles along
with Big Ten champ Jim Barber
of OSU.
Another Big Ten champ, Mark
Wizenreid of Wisconsin, carried
off top honors in the 880-yard run
with a clocking of 1:51.7.
In the long jump competition,
Bill Lightsey of Kentucky, a trans-
fer from Dinaennes Junior Col-

leap of 25'-2% ". 'Michigan's Ira
Russel finished sixth.
In the last final of the dfy, the
two-mile run, Pitt's Jerry Richey
posted an upset victory when he
nipped Alan Robinson of South-
ern Illinois, the Central Confer-
ence champ, in a finish filled with
body contact.
An interesting political side-
light. to the meet occurred when
Harvard's Ed Nosal, who won the
35 pound hammer throw with a
heave of 63'-6%/", accepted his
first place medal wearing a Yale
University jersey.
Yale has been suspended by the
NCAA from all competition for
allowing basketball player Jack
Langer to compete in the unsan'c-
tioned Maccabiah Games in Israel
last summer.

DENVER, Colo.- Wisconsin,
in a ragged contest put the
Michigan hockey team in hib-
ernation for another year,
downing the Wolverines 2-1 in
the Western Sectional playoffs
of the WCHA.
The Badgers will face Denver
in the finals tonight. The win-
ner receiving the trip to Lake'
Placid, N.Y., for the NCAA
hockey finals.
After, two periods in 1 a s t
night's WCHA game, the Michigan
icers were trailing Wisconsin 2-1.1
While down a man, Bob Pof-j
fenproh Wisconsin's 1 e a d i n g
scorer started the scoring at 6:08;
taking a pass from Murray Heat-
ley and firing a shot from twen-
ty feet out. Karl Bagnell appear-
ed to have it but somehow it
slipped through.
A little more than two minutes
later, while the Wolverines were
a man short, Lloyd Bentley pass-
ed to Doug McFayden at the
point who let a thirty footer fly
right at Bagnell. Again he

thought he had it under control
and it wasn't until he turned
around that he saw the red light
The Wolverines finally get on
the scoreboard at 10:25 with the
Badgers two men short. In a pic-
ture play defenseman Tom Marra
at the point passed to Dave Per-
rin standing next to the net who
tipped it in.
For a good portion of the per-
iod the game resembled anything
but hockey. Not that the play was
so bad but rather that there were
very few players on the ice as the
officials rattled off six penalties
in seven minutes all on minor in-
While the first period contained
anything but esthetic play, the
referees, who in the first period
called the penalties as tight as ever
in typical sWCHA fashion, w e r e
considerably looser in the second,
although they still managed to
call five penalties.
Any resemblance to the Wolver-

ines' fielding a hockey team was
purely accidpntal as Wisconsin
goalie Wayne Thomas was called
on to stop only three Michigan
The only thing that prevented
the Badgers from breaking loose
was the brilliant goaltending of
Karl Baghell, who made uncount-
able saves.
Michigan let several good op-
portunities go to waste when the
players were concentrating on
shoving instead of centering the
puck. Wisconsin had a two man
advantage for nearly a minute
at the close of the period but to
no avail.
The Wolverines play continued
to lag in the opening minutes of
the third period but finally jelled
half-way through.
Michigan had several excellent
opportunities to send the game
into overtime in the closing min-
utes of the contest, but they were
simply unable to find the range.

Yellow Jackets sting Duquesne

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Cat-quick Rich
Yunkus bailed out Georgia Tech
with 18 second-half points as the
Yellow Jackets stopped Duquesne
78-68 in the opener of the 33rd
National' Invitational Basketball
Tournament last night,
Yunkus, the Yellow Jackets'
graceful center, who had a sub-
par, 10-point first half, led his
team from a 32-all halftime tie to
a 67-58 lead with less than four
minutes remaining.

Chicago beans Boston, 134-113

Yunkus, often double-teamed,
used his quickness inside to foul
out Duquesn'e two big men, the
6-foot-10 Nelson twins, Barry and
Bob Seemer helped matters in
the opening minutes of the second
half for Georgia Tech, scoring
13 of his 17 points.
The Dukes came to within five
points, 67-62, with two minutes
remaining. But five straight
points by Bill Mayer gave Geor-
gia Tech an unsurmountable 72-
64 lead with 1:40 left.

NEW YORK - Scrambling St.

halftime edge, thenhslammed the
door on Miami of Ohio late in the
game to take a 70-57 victory.

game-high 23 points, and Joe De-
Pre, who scored 19, helped St.

CHICAGO - Jerry Sloan, who
missed three months of the Na-
tioial Basketball Association sea-
son because of a pulled groin
muscle, turned in a sparkling 29-
point effort last night to pace the
*Chicago Bulls to a 134-113 vic-
tory over the Boston Celtics.
Boston grabbed a 28-27 first
quarter lead, but the Bulls ripped
off 13 consecutive points, then
outscored the Celtics 22-7 in the
first five minutes of the second

score Carolina 31-14 and win the
Verga came off the better man

Badgers too 'psyched up '?
Sporting News honors Rudy
By The Associated Press
" MADISON, Wis. - A Wisconsin psychiatrist has reported that
the school's football team may have compiled its dismal three-year
3-26-1 performance record because the players had too much
adrenalin in their systems.
Dr. Maxie Maultsby, who traveled with the Badgers through
two of their losing seasons, said overzealous coaches may have gone
overboard trying to work their players up into a fighting frame of
mind for the games.
"There is an optimum level of adrenalin that allows one to per-
form at pak capacity," Dr. Maultsby said, "Anything beyond this
is more likely to interfere with coordination and control. The ultimate
extension of this decreased performance is that a person in panic is
Maultsby found, through analyzing urine samples, that the play-
ers' performance and their adrenalin levels were inversely related
-that is, an increase in the adrenalin level resulted in a decrease in
the performance level.

* PASADENA, Calif., - The Rose Bowl, shrine of college foot-
ball's oldest New Year's Day attraction, will remain pure as far as
professional football's Super Bowl is concerned.
City manager John Phillips said yesterday the city will not
bid for the 1971 Super Bowl when the National Football League
owners convene in Honolulu next week. ,t
A main point, of course, was the fear that the Super Bowl would
detract from the prestige of the Rose Bowl game.

With 2% minutes left, the Nets
led 105-91. Miami, however, out-
scored them 11-3 during the next
two minutes, with Al Cuete mak-
ing seven of the points. That
closed the gap to six, but Ron

Some time back, the Ann Ar-
bor police and the Washtenaw
sheriffs squared off in a gridiron
battle to the death. Krasny's
gang hasn't been heard from
since, but the sheriffs, though
weakened, are attempting to make
a comeback.
Owing to their loss in strength,
however, they have deemed it wise
to let a bunch of asses carry the
main burden. To be more specific,
they are scheduled to take on the
Saline police department at 7:30
this evening in a donkey basket-
ball game to be played at Saline
high school.
