Thompson, Dan Brown and Den-

seen much action over the past
two seasons as Michigan's "sixth
man," will probably have the in-
side track on Tregoning's old for-
ward position. Myer's best shot is
a soft left-handed jumper from
20 feet out. He will be challenged
for the open forward's spot by
6'4" John Clawson and 6'5" Dan
Brown, both of whom saw some
action as substitutes last year.
Other Guard
The other guard spot will be up
for grabs this season, much as it
was at the outset of last season.
John Thompson, who started at
the position in the early part of
last season, will have to fight off
junior dribbling-specialist Dennis
Bankey and sophomore jumping-
jack Jim Pitts.
Other freshmen who will now
make their presence on the varsity
felt are Gary Bowman, 6'4", Mark
Fritz, 6'5", and Bill Thomas, 6'5".
On its way to the NCAA play-
offs last season, Michigan smashed
its own conference scoring rec-
ord as well as the old conference
record by scoring an even total of
1300 points in 14 games for a per
game average of 92.9. The old
team record for total points on the
season (conference, non-confer-
ence and playoff) of 2,420 also
fell before the Blue onslaught.
Last year's Wolverines scored a
grand total of 2,526 points.
Most Won
The 13 conference games and
the 24 full-season games won by
the Wolverines are the most ever
won - by a Michigan basketball
team.
The only losses suffered by last
year's Wolverines came at the

But Michigan, with Buntinl

sentimental favorites, and even
though Bradley led all scorers with
29 points the Wolverines walked
away in the second half for a 93-
76 triumph.
Second Game
In the second game, UCLA beat
Wichita 108-89, setting the stage
for the dream game in the finals.
For the first 10 minutes of
that game, the Wolverines looked
unbeatable. They roared from a
four-point deficit to a seven point
lead, 20-13. But the UCLA press
began to have its anticipated ef-
fect.
The Wolverines didn't substitute
as frequently as they would have
liked. They found themselves mak-
ing too many turnovers, nervously!
tried to correct this, made even
more, and got more nervous. By
halftime, the Bruins had a com-
fortable 47-34 lead, mainly the re-
sult of an eight-point spurt by the
explosive Kenny Washington just
before the close of the half.
As the second half opened, the
big question was whether the Wol-
verines could come up with the

rally they would need to overcomE,
the Bruin lead and get back into
the game. They couldn't. The zone
press completely cracked the Wol-
verines' composure.
The Bruins broke up pass after
Michigan pass and bided their
time on offense--until the dart-
ing phantom, Gail Goodrich. could
get inside the foul line to score
the 27 points he tallied in his
phenomenal second half perform-
ance.

By MARC SPINRAD
Michigan isn't all big-time
sports. For those whose tastes lean
to bizarre and exotic-or just less
major-athletic pursuits, there are
clubs on campus tailor-made to
suit every interest.
For those who enjoy rugged
contact action, there are rugby
and soccer. The rugby club had
a 14-game schedule last season,
facing teams from Chicago,
Southwest Ontario, Notre Dame
and Indiana, among others.
Through the spring, it compiled a
8-1-2 record.
There are two soccer clubs, an
undergraduate club and a squad
open to both grads and under-
grads. The former played a six-
game schedule last spring against
teams fielded by Bowling Green,
Toledo, Kent State, Wooster and
others. An eight-game schedule is
planned for the fall.
The second soccer club plays in
the International Soccer League
(a Michigan intermural league).
Lacrosse Club
A lacrosse club was formed last
spring to offer still another sport-
ing alternative. Along with soccer
and rugby, the lacrosse squad
plays at Wines Field, and both
spectators and participants are
welcome.
The manly art of self defense
is represented in three of its
more popular forms by the boxing,

judo and karate clubs. The clubs
have about 30 members apiece
and usually meet twice a week.
The boxing club is under the tu-
telage of varsity coach Les Phil-
bin, and the judo and karate
teams engage in interclub com-
petition.
This year a group of enthusiasts
formed a cycling club. The club
offers interclub races and several
members entered local open meets.
Ski and Sailing Clubs
Two of the most popular ath-
letic organizations are the ski and
sailing clubs The sailing club
owns several sloops, and takes
trips to Whitmore Lake every
weekend in the spring and fall.
The ski club takes one major trip
each year (over the Christmas
break) and several weekend trips
to local areas.
The newest campus club is the
sky diving club. Members jump
every Saturday and Sunday at
Richmond Field in Gregory, Mich-
igan.
There' are also many smaller
clubs. These clubs meet anywhere
from once a month to several
times a week. They include the
bowling club, weight lifting club,
handball club, rifle and pistol
clubs and fencing club.
Those interested in joining any
of these clubs may contact either
Earl Riskey or R. J. Grambeau at
the Intramural Bldg.
