BIG TEN MEET THIS WEEKEND:
Wolverine Gymnasts Must Stay at Peak

in the second half, notched buckets
to put Michigan ahead for good,
89-88.
Six-Point Burst
After trading two-pointers, the
Wolverines, cool under pressure,
added six consecutive markers to'
ice the win. Illinois doggedly rallied
one final time after Mannie Jack-
son scored on a three-point play
to close the gap to 97-93.
But center Lovell Farris hooked
one in with 45 seconds left and
then Lee added Michigan's 100th
and 101st points to round out the
night's scoring.
Tidwell's long - distance one-
handed jump shot never worked
better for the 6'4" sophomore who
is apparently reaching his top
form once again after recuperating
slowly from a leg injury. He pump-
ed in nine of 12 shots in the second
half.
Not as fortunate in shaking the
effects of an injury has been play-
making guard Terry Miller.

By TOM WITECKI
Michigan's undefeated gymnas-
tic team faces a problem that all
winning athletic teams must face
at one time or another - that of
a "letdown."
With team performance and
spirit at its season's height last
Friday night, the gymnasts rose
to down defending Big Ten and
NCAA champion Illinois, 58-54.
Big Prize at Stake
Now at its peak, the team must
remain there - for Friday and
Saturday they will be competing
against the Illini again, but this
time with the Big Ten title at
stake.
But beating the Illini at Bloom-
ington, site of the Conference
meet, will be no easy trick, since
the meet's scoring methods, which
will give 11 points for first and
then nine, eight and so on down
the line, might give the powerful,
defending champs an advantage.

Grossfeld and Don Tonry, which

Mat Title
Hopes .Dim
By DAVE LYON
It should be apparent to ob-
servers of the Michigan wrestling
scene that this year's team is in-
consistent.
One week the matmen perform
well, the next week they're flat.
They were sharp in the Indiana,
Purdue, and Northwestern meets,
relapsed against Illinois, rebound-
ed against Iowa, and looked flat
again against Minnesota.
Over the last weekend, the
Wolverines were sharp, and Coach
Cliff Keen hopes they perform
just as well at this' coming week-
end's Big Ten affair in Iowa City.
Title Chances Dissipate
That is, what's left of them. The
Wolverines' chances of winning
the Big Ten title received a seri-
ous blow Friday when Fred Olm
sustained a fracture and torn
ligaments in his left leg.
Olm, needing only to avoid be-
ing pinned to give Michigan a
14-12 victory over Michigan State,
succeeded - in that intent until,
with two minutes left, Tim Wood-
in dropped his 225-1b. frame
squarely on Olm's leg, and the in-
jury forced Oli to default, giving
State a tie.
Faced With Decision
What Keen will do to replace
the sidelined junior heavyweight,
one of the team's three veterans,
will be decided during this final
week of practice leading up to the
Conference championships.
He will probably go with Guy
Curtis, sophomore heavyweight,
who has been a reserve this sea-
son, and has not wrestled com-
petitively. Keen will probably not
select 170-lb. Dennis Fitzgerald,
,who neatly disposed of Ohio
State's 200-lb. Bill Sexton in Sat-
urday's heavyweight match, 7-3.
Sexton is one of the Big Ten's
lighter men in the unlimited divi-
sion, and if Fitzgerald competed
at heavyweight in the Big Ten
meet, he could be outweighed by
50 pounds or more.
If Keen uses Curtis as expected,
Fitzgerald will be left free to try
to qualify at the 167-1b. slot. Dick
Fronczak has held down that
position for the last four meets,
but has lost his last three bouts,
two by lopsided scores.

fourth, fifth, and sixth spots.
However, if Wolverine performers
Richard Montpetit, Nino Marion,
Al Stall, Wolfgang Dozauer, Jim
Haysett, and Barry Feinberg
come through, the overall =Michi-
gan point total could overcome
that rolled up by the Ilini's firsts
and seconds.
Michigan's best chance for first
place honors will come in the
trampoline and tumbling events.
Defending Big Ten champ Ed Cole
will lead the Michigan tramp
team, while Bill Skinner and
Jimmy Brown should give the
Wolverines a double threat for a
first in tumbling.

MINNEAPOLIS OP)--Ohio State
survived Ron Johnson's 30-point
scoring and charged from behind
for a 68-66 Big Ten basketball
victory over Minnesota last night.

With a chance to tie the score
with three seconds left, Minne-
sota's Marlo Miller missed the
first of two free throws and then
tried to set up a rebound with his
second foul shot. But the ball
failed to hit the rim and possession
went to Ohio State.
Larry Siegfried scored 24 points
for the Buckeyes.
