MID-AMERICAN:
Perhaps a powerhoL

By KEITH R. WOOD 1
The Mid-American ConferenceE
is not exactly the strongest when
it comes to basketball, but it an-i
nually produces one or two teahnsI
that possesses enough talent to'
gain national recognition.
This season should prove to be
no exception as Toledo is consid-
ered to be one of the top teams
in the nation.
Coach Bob Nichols has compil-
ed a 52-21 won-lost record in his'
three years at Toledo.No harm
should c o m e to Coach Nichols'
record this year because he is
endowed with the bulk of his team
returning from last season.
The big man in the Rocket line-
up is All-American forward Steve
3Mix. Mix is an all-around player,
and has been twice chosen on the
Helms All-American team.
In his sophomore year he was
the only player in the country,
with the exception of Lew Alcin-
dor, to rank in the top twenty of
major college basketball in scor-
ing, rebounding, a n d field goal
percentage.
At 6-6, Mix would generally be
considered small for a pivot man,
but he is extremely aggressive. He
is quickrand strong, and possesses
the desire and stamina to do the
inside Job and do it well.
Mix is joined by seven-footer
Doug Hess and playmaker John
Rudley. With a year of experience
behind them, these two should
show some improvement on their
already fine ability. Dale Geistler,
a 6-9 sophomore, could provide
the boost needed in the Rocket
defense.
Although Toledo should easily
win theuconference championship,
there are a couple of other teams
which have the potential to give
the Rockets some rough compe-
tition if they should falter in their
bid for the title.
Last season, the Rockets proved

because they could not put them-

success this year could very well
depend on an improvement over
last year's team play.
Western Michigan could be one
of theteams to give Toledo some
trouble. The Broncos appear to
have much better balance than
last season, and they have an out-
standing performer in 6-5 Gene
Ford. Averaging nearly nineteen
points and ten rebounds per game
last season, Ford is looked upon
by many to be one of the better
players in the mid-west. Western
caused quite a bit of trouble in
the conference last year and more
of the same can be expected this
year.
Another prominent name in the
Mid-Am, is Gerald McKee of Ohio
University. He alone should be
enough to pull the Bobcats out of
the league cellar, and if he gets
the expected support f r a m his
teammates, Ohio could very well
be a top contender.

"After all, Wisconsin had already

4.500 Badger fans on hand.
Michigan had driven to an early
4-0 lead, but with five minutes
left, a Wisconsin onslaught .three
goals in 48 seconds at one point)
melted it away into the initial
Walverine defeat.
One factor weakening the Mich-
igan defensive wall was the
shoulder separation suffered by
captain Paul Domm during the
game.
Renfrew substituted Tim Marra,
a sophomore from Edina, Minne-
sota, but that left seniors Lars
Hansen and Phil Gross the only
veteran defensemen. plus Craig
Malcolmson, last year's alternate.
Sparking Michigan to its tem-
porary shutout was Doug Gal-
braith, last year's leading scorer
(with 36 points), who tallied
twice. Dave Perrin added another
goal, as well as Don Hylinger, one
half of Michigan's identical hock-
ey twins.1
But the Wolverines got their,

Domm did not play, led all the

Perrin started it off with 17

told of his new job Sunday when
he got a call from Coil.
"He said we'd discuss things
later" Seymour said. "As far as
the team is concerned I don't
know what to say until I talk with
the kids and see a few workouts."
Concerning possible changes he
added: "I haven't given it any
thought . . . We'll go pretty much
the way we have, except we should
get some more scoring out of the
pivots and I'll change the offense
a little bit."
Seymour was Baltimore's head
coach during the 1965-66 season
when the Bullets finished in sec-
ond place. He resigned to devote
more time to his family and bysi-
ness interests in Syracuse.
The St. Louis Hawks hired him
as head coach in 1960-61 and they
finished the season with a 51-28
record before bowing to the Bos-
ton Celtics in the playoffs. Sey-
mour was fired early the next
year and was out of the NBA until
his assignment at Baltimore.
Butcher will remain with the
team as head scout, a position he
held before being named coach.

Dear President:
On December 7th at 7 and 10 p.m. the University Activities Board in conjunction with Kappa Phi
Alpha fraternity will present in concert the IRON BUTTERFLY.
Due to overwhelming demands from the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area, the UAB finds it extremely
difficult to satisfy all organizations in regards to block-seating arrangements.
In order to give equal opportunity to every organization, the UAB has established a block-seating
policy for the remainipg concerts.
The policly reads as follows:

Feb. 28 Jose Feliciano, Fifth Dimension Concert
March 28 Diana Ross and the Supremes concert.Plus, for each ticket purchased above the original 50
tickets, a discount of 10 per cent will be in effect.
The policy states that by purchasing a block for the Dec. 7 concert you will have secured that same
block or blocks for the remaining concerts. This does not mean that you are held liable to attend every
concert. It does mean though that by securing a block for the Dec. 7 concert (IRON BUTTERFLY) that
your organization has the option to take, the same seats for the remaining 2 concerts.
Block seats will go on sale Dec. 3, on a first-come, first-serve basis, by calling 483-6100, Ext. 2130,
or by mailing or presenting a letter of authorization to the Office of Student Activities, 3rd Floor, Mc-
