meets avery year: Michigan State
and Iowa.
This afternoon, the Wolverines'
tangle with the Spartans and the
Hoosiers of Indiana in the first
round of a sports double-header
in t h e Events building at 1:30.
Unfortunately, the battle may not
be the neck-and-neck race it us-
ually is.
The Spartans have suffered
greatly this year from graduation
and injuries. As a result, only a
poor Michigan showing a n d an
outstanding State showing could
give the Spartans a victory.
Indiana, a perennially weak
team, was hurt even more this
year by injuries. They are not ex-
pected to give either of the other
two teams a challenge.
What the meet lacks in a team

Dave. Jacobs, Michigan's NCAA
champion two years ago, will meet
State's Toby Towson, current
holder of the NCAA title. L a s t
season, Jacobs was hampered by
sore ankles and competed o n 1 y
sparingly in the event. He didn't
even qualify for t h e nationals.
This season both competitors have
had excellent scores, Towson per-

has to be the Wolverines tough-

In taking on defending Big Ten
champion Michigani State at 3:30
this afternoon, the Wolverines will
use a slightly modified line-up.
They'd undoubtedly like to force
some modifications in the Spar-
tan line-up; too, f o r State will

dicted at that time, "We can beat

Michigan to beat State "will take
a superlative effort," says Coach
Cliff Keen. "There's nothing on
their team that's weak. They have
some awful top-notch boys."
Bay adds, "Coach Keen has had
teams in the past that have had
to overcome rough odds. This will
have to be one of those times."
In an effort to place the most
favorable odds on their side, the
Michigan coaches have altered the
Wolverine line-up somewhat.

Szypula feels, "Toby is so great
that almost nobody in the coun-
try can approach him. The only
collegian who cari come near him
is Michigan's Dave Jacobs."
Jacobs, though, might be at
some sort of a disadvantage be-
cause he is recovering from a pul- -
led muscle in his leg. At the be-
ginning of the week, Coach Newt FOWL SHO':
Loken was not sure that he would
let Jacobs compete in the event.
He later decided that he would be'
well enough to compete.

Big Ten Standings


States Joe Fedorchik, their top
all-arounder, pulled a ligament in
his arm and is out for the season.
Cliff Diehl, a top parallel and high
bar performer injured his shoulder
and will also miss the neet.
One of Indiana's all-around
men, Gary Funke, also has an in-'
jured shoulder and probably won t
compete. Their parallel bar man,
Bob Witmer is also out, as is an-
other mul tiple-event performer,
Chuck Earle.

These injuries will leave both
the Spartans and t h e Hoosiers
with a severe depth problem. Mich-
igan, on the other hand, is over-
stocked in many events and Loken
is having to choose between pos-
sible performers. Should a n y
Michigant entrant slip during a
iroutine it will fiot be anywhere
near as serious as if an opponent
has a. slip.
Because of his depth, Coach Lo-
ken is not concerned about losing
too many events. "Besides t h e
floor exercise," he commented,
"We may be threatened in t h e
sidehorse or possibly the high bar.
Other than that, we will probably
have a definite advantage."
Towson and Dennis Smith are
the Spartan's backbone on t'h e
sidehorse, while Norm Haynie hays
been undefeated this season on
the'high bar.:

There are more things flying
among the clouds these days than
Hawks. But after Michigan's
breathtaking 92-87 win over Il-
linois last Tuesday, the Wolverines
must come down to business at
9:00 tonight in. Iowa City.
Michigan beat the tenth-ranked
Illini with spectacular passes, tor-
rid shooting from the field, and
clutch defense in the game's ten-
sest moments. Bob Sullivan has
become ,the first "Wizard of
Oohs" since Mr. C. L. Russell
ruled Yost Field House. "Sully"
seemed to spend more time in the
air than on the court with his un-
believable passes and his floating,
driving layups.
If Sullivan was not busy making
three or four simultaneous mid
air moves, Rudy Tomjanovich was
most likely firing antoff balance
shot from 25 feet through the
hoop with uncanny accuracy. Be-
sides this offensive magic, Sul-
livan, Dan Fife, and Dennis Ste-
wart fought tirelessly through 40
minutes of violent rebounding ac-
tion with the awesome Illinois
front line.
Though Iowa has nothing to
compare with the Illini's muscle,
the Wolverines must come down
out of the clouds long enough to
try to concentrate on blasting the
high-flying Hawkeye offense off
the court. Coach Ralph Miller
claims that "this may be the best
offensive team I've ever had."
Iowa is averaging 84.1 points per
game this season, but "defense is
the thing that has killed us this
year," according 'to the Hawk
Miller feels that defenses are
built during preseason practice be-
cause, "during the season, two
games a week doesn't leave much
time for practice." Perhaps Michi- h
gan could have used some more t
practice, too, as the. Wolverines v
have given up an average of 89.3 c
markers an outing.
John Orr, on tle other hand,;
does not seem overly concerned
about stopping the opposition's'
point production. "We will goc
with our 1-3-1 zone, and don't I
plan to make any changes." The
Hawk's leading scorer this year is
Ben McGilmer with a 19.0 average,
but Orr stated that "Jensen is j'
their only scoring weakness."
Orr said he expected Iowa to s
run their full court zone press to-
night all the way. But Miller is not
so sure that his cagers will be f
.pressuring the entire game. They
will, however, be in their usual r
"man-to-man pressuring defense." I

Miller has not forgotten about
the Wolverines' past s u c c e s s
against the Hawkeyes. Earlier this
season, the' score found them on
the short- end of a 99-92 overtime
contest in Ann Arbor. But the
cruelest blow came last March at
Iowa City when the 11-70 final
knocked them into a fateful play-
off with Ohio State.
The Wolverines would like noth-
ing more than to sink the Hawk-
eyes once again, as Iowa can ill
afford another loss in the race for '
the Big Ten title.
The Hawks dropped two crucial
conference tilts to "'Purdue and
Illinois while playing' on the road

Northwestern i an overtime.

to Michigan in' the Events Build-
