Upset minded Illini sophomores
severe threat to 'NI' gymnasts

Wolverines
The Lineups

take

on vengeful Illini

By JERRY CLARKE
The Michigan Gymnasts travel
to Illinois today in hopes of
matching last week's stunning
success. If the two teams live up
to their previous form, the Wol-
verines should once again prove'
that they are a force to be reck-
oned with on the national scene.
The chance that the squad is
looking ahead to next week's dual
meet with Iowa could provide the
talented and eager Illini with just
what they need to pull off an up-
set. Coached by Charlie Pond, Il-
linois has been steadily improving
since the mid '60's, when Illini
gym fortunes were at a low ebb.
Pond's record at Illinois has
been impressive. At the start of
this year, he boasted a dual meet
record of 122 wins, 48 losses, and 1

tie, with 20 of those losses coming
in the 1963-65 period. Eleven Big
Ten and four NCAA team titles
offer further testimony to his
coaching prowess.
This year's team is young and
eager. They have been defeated
but twice in Big Ten competition.
The powerful Iowa team outscored
them by four points, and they lost
to Michigan State by a mere two
tenths of a point.
Led by team captain Jack Mc-
Carthy' and all-around perform-
ers Ed Raymond and Larry Butts,
their lineup includes seven sopho-
mores, around whom the Illini are
building for the future.
A victory this weekend could
start Illinois on the road back to
the height it was once accustomed
to in the gymnastics world.

They will have to oppose a Wol-'
verine team that is sound phys-i
ically and which could be just
reaching its peak. Facing Michi-;
gan on the rings, the strongest
event of last week's meet, will be
a squad consisting of Jack Davis,
Arnie Sepke, Butts, and Raymond.
Raymond also keys the side
horse team, where he has been
scoring in the 9's all season. It is
in this area that Michigan is
hoping for improvement over lasti
week.
Michigan coach Newt Loken ex-
presses the normal amount of,
"coaches concern," but notes that,
he doesn't really expect a letdown.
He asserts that the squad will
"take them in order," and not
look past the Illini to the Iowa
meet here in Ann Arbor,

The up and down Wolverine

afternoon in a battle with Il-

career as he made 13 of 26 at-
tempts from the floor for a whop-
ping 69.3 field goal percentage. He
was the game's leader in both
points and rebounds with 37 and
11 respectively but unfortunately
Tomjanovich was able to connect
on only one of his six free throws.
Coach Campbell was extremely
impressed with the 6-7 junior
stating, "He shot over Jackson
well and made some tremendous
long shots. I think we really caught
that big guy on a great night.
He's like Rick Mount in that both
have the ability to break a teatn's
spirit by hitting on three or four
long ones in just a couple minutes
of playing time."
Although far from pleased with
his own team's defense against
Michigan, which he described as
"passive" in allowing 92 ooints,
Campbell was also unimpressed
with the Wolverines' ability to
stop the opposition from scoring.
"It seems like defense just isn't
their bag as the saying goes. Mich-
igan has an effective zone but not
a great one. I can't understand
why they don't play better defense
because the team has a lot cf
talent."
After losing at Michigan and
at Michigan State, Illinois handed
Ohio State a decisive 16-point de-
feat. Coach Campbell was delight-
ed with the performance of the
Illini against the Buckeyes saying,
"It was a real fine game thanks
in part to our home court. If the
boys play as well against Michi-
gan as they did last Tuesday, we'll
be in great shape.

Chuck Reilly at 160 likewise
turned the table on an opponent
who had previously defeated him
by scoring a 4-3 decision over Jim
Axtel.
At this point, with the score 12-
6 for Michigan, the meet was for
all intents and purposes over, as
the Wolverines' strong trio of Tom
Quinn, Jesse Rawls, and P e t e
Cornell had yet to make their ap-
pearances.
Quinn continued the momen-
tum built up .by the middle-
weights when he scored four
points in the last period to earn a
5-3 verdict over Jim Axtel.
Rawls provided the crowd with
the best entertainment of the day
as he playfully toyed with his op-
ponent en route to an 8-2 win.
Several times Rawls had oppor-
tunities to pin his tiring opponent,
but each time the hapless Gopher
was able to squirm out of the
pining combination.

However, all was not sweet for
the Wolverine, especially in the
opening match. Tim Cech, t h e
team's leading winner this year,
was not up to form and came out
on the short end of a 3-2 count

tied, 1-1. when Nichols scored a
