challenges

By DAVE HANNES
It's do or die for each team as
Michigan battles Illinois at the'
Events Building tonight at 8:00.
A defeat for the Wolverines would,
wipe out their already dim hopes
of a Big Ten title where Illinois
must hand Michigan its third
straight loss or fall as much as
three games behind Purdue, t h e
leagve leaders.
oach Harv Schmidt's Illini, at
one time ranked four nationally,
sport an over-all record of 13-2
and are 4-2 in the conference. De-
feats on the road to Purdue and
Ohio State are the only blemishes
on Illinois' fine mark.
The key man on Schmidt's team
is 6-8 forward Dave Scholz, who,
is closing in on Don Freeman's
school scoring mark. The Illinois
coach describes Scholz as a "com-
pletely unselfish team player. His
passing has improved tremen-
dously this season as shown by his
ten assists against Iowa last Sa-
turday."
Possibly the most surprising
player in the Big Ten this year
has been the center for the Fight-!
ing Illini, Greg Jackson. The 6-8
sophomore scored 36 points
:. against Wisconsin recently, a
great improvement over his per-
formance against Purdue in
which Jackson did not score from
the field.
Unlike Scholz, who has b e en
,making only one third of his field
goal attempts, Jackson presently
opt carries an excellent 55 per cent
st accuracy mark. One weakness in
or the play of the 254-pound center
has been his lack of rebounding
re despite his great size. Jackson is
now averaging just six rebounds
per game.
COLLEGE CAGE:

The other starting forward is
Randy Crews, a 6-5 junior de-
scribed by Schmidt as "a low
scorer, but a fine ball handler and
an excellent defensive player."
The Illinois guards are Mike Price
and Jodie Harrison, who combine
for one of the best backcourt
combinations in the conference.
Price is a 6-3 junior from In-
dianapolis who Schmidt feels is
a strong contender to take All-
Big Ten honors at his position.
Harrison, who transferred to Il-
linois from Alabama his sopho-
more season, is a 6-3 senior with
"great leadership" according to
his coach.
However, it is no secret t h a t
Price and Harrison are only ade-
quate ball-handling guards. Ear-
lier this season Purdue used this
fact plus a pressing defense to
soundly whip the Illini 98-84.
In discussing his team's Big Ten
championship hopes, Schmidt
said, "Our ineligibility because of
the slush fund scandal hasn't hurt
our desire to win but unless Ohio
State beats Purdue this Tuesday
it's all over for the rest of us."
As for Michigan, the Illinois
coach claims that "the most im-
portant man for us to stop is
Tomjanovich, of course, although
we have a good deal of respect
for both Stewart and Sullivan."
Last year Sullivan scored t h e
winning bucket against Illinois in
a 69-67 victory at Champaign.
Last 'Saturday Michigan's sen-
ior forwards led the Wolverines in
their unsuccessful comeback
against Michigan State. Stewarta
scored 27 points and pulled in 14
rebounds. However, like Sullivan.
and Tomjanovich, the Steelton,
Pa. native was forced to play a

loose defense for the last five
minutes of the game since he was
saddled with four fouls, as were
the other two.
Sullivan, who seems to have be-
come the team sparkplug, scored
21 points and grabbed 13 re-
bounds. He was especially effec-
tive working one-on-one making
his unorthodox one-handers from
within ten feet of the basket.
After Stewart and Sullivan,
with the help of two Dan Fife
steals, gave Michigan a 69-68 lead
with 7:35 left in the game, Tom-
janovich re-entered the g a m e
to add to the Wolverine scoring
punch. However, the Spartans,
outscored Michigan 17-12 for the
remainder of the battle to take an
86-82 win. A Dennis Stewart jump
shot, which would have tied the
score, was off target with 16 se-
conds remaining. Immediately af-
terwards State's Tom Lick tipped
in a missed free throw to ice his
team's victory.
Michigan committeed 19 turn-
overs and missed half of their 16
foul shots. A similar performance
against the tenth-ranked Illini
could result in almost certain de-
feat.

MICHIGAN'S BOB SULLIVAN (20) shows the form he uses on many of his unorthodox moves.
Sullivan hit this shot in last year's victory over Illinois and also scored the game winning points.
The 6-4 senior forward will be counted on heavily tonight to provide firepower once more against
the highly ranking Fighting Illini as the Wolverines try for an upset.

-Daily-Thomas R. C
WOLVERINE KEN MAXEY (44) drives for the basket in la
Saturday's loss to Michigan State. The Michigan captain hit f
eight points against the Spartans and will have to show mo
moves like this for the cagers to pull out a victory tonight.

Toronto wants new judge
By The Associated Press
! LOS ANGELES - Lew Alcindor has suffered from migrane
headaches for the past four years, UCLA basketball Coach John
Wooden said yesterday.
The 7-1% Bruin center missed practice sessions last week and
played only 28 minutes in last Saturday nikht's 108-80 victory over
Washington State. He scored 10 points.
"Usually he'll lie down in a dark room with ice packs on his
head," Wooden told the Southern Basketball Writers. "It usually goes
away in half Aan hour. He was bothered by them in his sophomore
season but they didn't bother him last year."
Wooden said 'the headaches may be caused by the pressure of
Alcindor's coming graduation and attempts \by both the National
and American Basketball Association to sign him to a professional
contract.
% TORONTO - Toronto Maple Leaf officials say they will
try to replace goal judge Eddie Mepham because they claim he erred
in ruling that the puck did not completely cross Oakland's goal-line
during a National Hockey League game here Saturday.
Toronto lost the game 4-1 and was trailing by this score in the
third period when Mepham ruled against a shot by Toronto's Floyd
Smith. Manager-Cqach Punch Imlach said television playbacks of
the shot showed it was in.

Du Pont wants engineers who want to grow

the guy who'd like to "know more about it" be=
fore he marries a specific kind of job. We even
have a plan to help him.
It's called "planned mobility"-a sort of
intramural job hop. You don't get into a train-
ing program. You get into a job. If it doesn't fit
you, or you it, you get into a second job or a fifth
pr a sixth, until you find the one you want to
grow with. It gives you time to decide while
you're broadening professionally.
