Defensive Lack
Hinders Cagers

Gymnasts Up Record to 6-0
With Three Weekend Wins

By FRED KATZ
Michigan's basketball team
showed the past weekend that it
can run and shoot with.the best of
them and so offense isn't one of
Coach Bill Perigo's worries.
"It's our defense that is hurting
us a lot right now," said Perigo.
And the cold figuies back him
up. Against Michigan State Satur-
day night Wolverine sharpshooters'
tattered the nets for 91 points,
two short of its season's high, and
good enough to win most games.
State Sets Record
But State surpassed that total'
with ease and its 103 points repre-
sented the first time a Forddy An-
derson coached team passed the
century mark. It was also the most
points ever scored against a Michi-
gan aggregation.
The Wolverines' defensive inept-
ness was placed in the spotlight
once more against Iowa Monday
night when they squeaked by with
a last-minute 90-86 win..
In both games Michigan suf-
fered most at the hands of the
opposing centers, State's Johnny
Green and the Hawkeyes' Nolden
Gentry, who repeatedly scored on
tipins. Perigo was particularly dis-
turbed about Gentry's success on
the boards.
Gentry's Points a Mystery
"Gentry is a great rebounder but
certainly isn't the offensive threat
that Green is," said Perigo. "We
expected Green to get his share of
points but I still haven't figured
out how Gentry got loose as much:
as he did for all those tipins."
Gentry got 20 points against the
Wolverines, almost all of them-the
result of converted rebounds.
All wasn't gloom with the cage,
mentor, though. He had some
cheering, words for the play of
centers Lovell Farris and Rich
Donley, and George Lee, who
totaled 51 points in the weekend
series.
"Farris did a fine job of spear-
heading us in the second half
against Iowa with his passes to
Lee," said Perigo. "And Donley
showed us that he can play a lot

of ball for us next year. All he
needs is the experience now."
Continuing his praise, Perigo
said Lee showed a lot more fire
and was especially effective on de-
fense against Iowa's Dave Gun-
ther, holding him to four points
in the first half, and 13 altogether.
Won't Concede
Perigo refused to concede MSU
the Big Ten title despite its 8-2
record.
"They've got a pretty command-
ing lead (two games over Purdue
and Indiana) but they still must
play both the second place clubs,"
said Perigo.
Michigan, who is in fourth place
with a 5-4 mark and a half game
out of second, must beat North-
western this Saturday to keep its
ever-dwindling title hopes alive.

WHO'S GOT IT? -- That could well be the question as Michigan's
George Lee (35) and Iowa's Dave Gunther (foreground) go high
in air to grab rebound in Monday's game that the Wolverines
won, 90-86.

MICHIGAN'S TRACK HOPES:
Relay Teams Feature Usual Strength

(This- 3s the concluding part of a
series discussing Michigan's track.
team. Today's article presents the
Wolverine relay hopes.)'
By JIM BENAGH
Michigan has always put to-
gether strong relay teams and it
hasn't taken long this season to
see that.another "normal" year is
in progress.
In three meets to date - the
Michigan AAU, Michigan State
Relays and a triangular contest-
the Wolverines boast five first
places and four seconds in 10 relay
starts.
And from the looks of the 1959
schedule, there are going- to be
lots more opportunities for relay
honors.
In the indoor campaign, Michi-
gan will- have quartets in the
Chicago Daily News Relays, Mil-
waukee Journal ,Relays -and, the
Cleveland Knights of Columbus
meet.
Five Outdoor Meets
When the outdoor season comes,
Wolverine foursomes tentatively
have trips planned to the Okla-
homa,.Texas, Quantico (Va.), Ohio
and Penn Relays.
This schedule, if carried out,
will mean six straight weeks of re-
lay competition. But Michigan

son can run strong, and in the
sprints where Tom Robinson, Don
Chalfant, John Gregg, Dick Cep-
has and Jim Simpson can double
well in any event through the
quartermile.
One of the Best
Add quarter miler Bryan Gib-
son to this aggregation in the
sprint relays and you have one of
the best groups in the midwest-
even though all are sophomores
and juniors.
Wally Schafer, Fred Montour
and Dave Martin-all sophs-and
junior Earl Deardorff join Seth
and Dickerson in the half mile to
complete a potent array for two
mile relays.
Schafer, Martin (4:16) and
Montour can combine with Dick
Schwartz, primarily a two, miler,
or Cam Gray to each run a mile
for the four-mile contest.
Led by Pete Stanger, the only
Michigan senior on any relay
team, the shuttle hurdle quartet
has won its only two starts-the
Michigan AAU and MSU Relays.
Mile Relay Important
The mile relay, of course, is the
most important of the many ar-
rangements used. This is because!
it is run in dual and Conference
meets.
Already the Wolverines have re-
corded good time-a 3:20.0-al-
though they finished fifth at MSU.
The first-place time, set by Kan-
sas State, was a close 3:18.8, to
produce probably the best balanced
field that' the 36-yr.-old Relays
had ever seen.
Canham has an exceptional
record in relay competition. His
teams have established world two-
mile and distance medley marks
outdoors and sprint medley records
indoors in the past. Along with
these were three American records
and several varsity and Big Ten
bests.

By TOM WITECKI
While a number of Michigan's
athletic squads experienced rough
sledding the past weekend, the
Wolverine gymnastic team went
on a victory rampage, rolling up
three wins in four days, to boost
its undefeated record to 6-0.
Navy Pier, Wisconsin and Michi-
gan State all fell easily before the
gymnasts, whose newly developed
strength has established them as
a strong contender for defending
champion Illinois' Big Ten title.
Still Rough Spots
Reflecting on his team's week-
end performance, gymnastics
Coach Newt Loken said, "The boys
looked fine in the three meets,
having improved considerably
since the beginning of the year,
but there are still a lot of rough
spots in their routines that will
have to be ironed out if we hope
to give Illinois a fight for the. Con-
ference title."
Fortunately for local fans, both
they and Loken will be able to get
a preview of the Big Ten title
fight when the powerful Illini in-
vade Ann Arbor Feb. 27 for a dual
meet in the I-M gym.
Although Michigan has a double
dual meet this Saturday at 4 p.m.
against conference also-rans In-
diana and Ohio State, there is little
doubt that the Wolverines will be

Reputation

A Reputation?
Apparently rival coaches are be-
ginning to take Michigan's third-
period letdowns for granted. Said
Minnesota mentor John Mariucci
to his Gophers before last week-
end's series, "Stay within a goal of
them until the last period. We'll
take them then."

Renfrew Objective
As a result of Denver Univer-
sity's NCAA eligibility protest,
Michigan State Coach Amo Bas-
sone has sent a directive to the
three-man selection committee
(Al Renfrew, Mariucci and Tony
Frasca of Colorado College) in-
structing them to choose the Mid-
west's two representatives at their
discretion.
With at least a share of the
problem being tossed into Ren-
frew's lap, he indicated that his
selections will be objective. Said
the coach, "My own choices will
be on the basis of the teams' per-
centages against former league op-
ponents."
Mild Weekend
Michigan's second -weekend

just priming themselves for the
following Friday's showdown.
A good share of the team's
recent success should be attributed
to all-around performers Richard
Montpetit and Nino Marion whose
high-scoring routines have led the
Wolverines.
Both Impressive
The twosome looked particularly
impressive Monday night at East
Lansing where they each took two
firsts and scored 21 points apiece
in sparking their team to a 732
to 38% win.
Loken called the meet the team's
"best of the year" but afterwards
indicated that he was still not
satisfied with the team's per-
formance. But who can blame him
for being critical with one of the
nation's best gym teams on the
docket in just eight days.

Watt Fully Patched
Renfrew feels that Captain Bob-
bie Watt has finally recovered
fully from the injury suffered in
mid-January. Watt lost 4 teeth
and needed 35 stitches after a
collision during the first game of
the series with Michigan Tech,
the Wolverines' opponent this
weekend.
Watt has been playing, but Ren-
frew felt that he has just now
reached top form, and could make
a difference in the remaining
games.
