The schedule-makers, however,
have tried their best to give the
Big Ten champions a bitter winter.
As befits a team with number-
two national rankings from both
wire service polls, the 1966 Wol-
verines will be faced with a bevy
of potential champions as they go
through their pre-Big Ten warm-

will play host to the Ball State
Cardinals, perennial early season
visitors from Muncie, Ind. But af-
ter that, the vacation (one can
hardly call it that, what with the

will be over, and the team will
migrate to the heart of the Great
Plains to play the tough Shockers
from Wichita State on the 8th.

heavy duty under the boards is
6'7" Mike Lewis, a soph with im-
pressive credentials (17.4 RB's
and 22.4 points for each of his
frosh matches).
After Duke, Michigan will pass
through Indianapolis, Ind., en
route to the Coast and the Dec.

to meet usually-stubborn Butler
on the 22nd, Michigan still
shouldn't have too much trouble,
as the Indianas are notably lack-

starter returning.
Spending the holidays in Port-

land, Ore., the boys in Blue will
see three days of action in their
quest for the tournament crown.
Expected to present the greatest
opposition will be the Indians
from Stanford, the only note-
worthy team in a field which also
includes Oregon, Oregon State,
Utah State, Washington State, Air
Force, and Arizona State.
But you can't count them out,
either. In a year such as this, with
a schedule such as Michigan's, a
team has to be a potential na-
tional power to get any "note" at

BASKETBALL-Michigan vs. Tennessee at Yost Field House,
8 p.m.


Basketball Tickets
Tomorrow is a big day for Michigan basketball.
Not only will it mark the season opener against Tennessee,
but it might break some sort of unofficial basketball ticket sales
record. No less than six different admissions will be on the
block. They are as follows:
1) Tennessee tickets: There are still plenty left and they will
be on sale today and tomorrow at the athletic ticket office at
State and Hoover. The cost is one buck with presentation of
your identification,.card.
2) Bowling Green tickets and 3) Ball State tickets: The
ducats for the next two home games, Bowling Green on Saturday
and Ball State on Monday, will go on sale tomorrow. Purchase
procedures will be the same as for Tennessee.
4) Duke tickets. The Wolverines will face Duke at Cobo Hall
Dec. 21, and the sale of tickets starts tomorrow. The prices are
$5, $4, and $3. Also, $2 tickets will be sold for $1 to University
students and faculty. They will be on sale at the Matt Mann Pool
lobby which is adjacent to the ticket office.
5) San Francisco tickets. A very limited number of tickets
for Michigan's Dec. 11 date with the Dons at the Chicago Sta-
dium are now on sale at the ticket office.
6) Season tickets. The fan who doesn't like to get to the
game early to find a good seat (the doors at Yost open two
hours prior to starting time) might be interested in spending
$25 for a season pass. They too are now on sale at the ticket
office which is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

run the national gamut, facing
third - rated Duke, 11th - ranked
San Francisco, the Shockers of
Wichita, who occupy the 20th spot
and gave Michigan a whopper of a
battle in Detroit last year before
succumbing to a Cazzie Russell
jumper at the final buzzer, and
possibly, by virtue of the draw,
AAWU runner-up (and one of
those often anonymous and ig-
nominious teams relegated' to
"others receiving votes") Stanford
in the Far West Classic during
the holiday break. And that's in
only ten pre-Big Ten games.
Perhaps a hint to the outcome
of the whole season will come to-
morrow night at Yost, when Mich-
igan hits the hardwoods against
Ray Mears' Tennesseeans. Differ-
ent from traditional season open-
ers in that it is not the typical'
try-out game against some small
liberal arts college in Ohio or In-
diana, Wednesday's battle will be
against the team some are picking
as the heir-apparent to Vander-
bilt's Southeastern C o n f e r e nce
Rugged Vols
The Vols, spearheaded by 6'4"
Ron Widby, last year's SEC soph-
of-the-year and a defensive spe-
cialist with a 14 point average to
boot, are noted for the defensive-
type ball that Mears teaches with
startling expertise. Yielding but
55.6 points per game, the '64-'65
Volunteers were tops in the nation
This Saturday, the Blue will be
getting their try-out game, albeit
a little late. Led into Ann Arbor
by 6'2" Nick Aloi and towering
soph Walt Diotkowski, 6'8", the
Falcons of Bowling Green deserve
more than casual mention solely
on the basis of their second-place
finish in the'Mid-American Con-
ference, steadily improving as a
potential entry to the ranks of
basketball's "major college"
Coach's Objective
Coach Warren Scholler states
his prime objective as "hoping to

back from last year's Missouri Val-
ley champs. Making it to the semi-
finals before being scuttled by
champion-to-be UCLA 108-89, last
year's Kansans are still slated to
be one of the top fives in the na-
tion, chiefly due to the presence of
the wondrous Mr. Pete.
Pete, who at 6'1" hardly foists
an imposing presence on opposing
giants, averaged 18 points per
match last year, and Coach Gary
Thompson can count on an equally
good-if not better--performance
this season. Also scheduled to add
impetus to the Wichita attack is
6'3" Jamie Thompson, a converted
forward who clicked for 20ppg in
the last half of the '64-'65 season.
To Chicago
On the 11th will be a third
match of "national interest," as
Michigan migrates to Chicago to
meet San Francisco in mammoth
Chicago Stadium. The choice to
repeat as kings of the West Coast
Athletic Conference, the Dons,
buoyed by the return of All-West
Coast guard-forward Joe Ellis and
6'8" forward-center Erwin Muel-
ler, will serve as a trying warmup
for. the biggest December match
of all, the battle against the Blue
Devils of Duke on the 21st at De-
troit's Cobo Hall.
The only team to rate in the.Top
Ten at the end of each of the last
five campaigns, the Blue Devils,
20-5 last year, are neck-and-neck
with Michigan on one of the pre-
season polls, and are a strong fifth
in the other. The three leading
scorers from last year's squad are

dreams pleasant, and to ruin Dave

Heading the returning troops

back are Steve Vacendak (6'1",

NEW YORK--Unbeaten Dart-
mouth, the Ivy League champion,
was named winner of the Lambert
Trophy yesterday as the East's
outstanding major college football
Princeton was second and Syra-
cuse third in the voting by a com-
mittee of sports writers, sports-
casters and Lambert Trophy trus-
It was the first time that Dart-
mouth has captured the trophy
in the 30 years of its existence.
Princeton was the last Ivy League
team to win it undisputedly in
1951. Yale, another Ivy League
team, and Navy tied for the
award in 1960.
The Indians finished with a 9-0
record, including a 28-14 con-
quest of Princeton that gave them
the league title. Princeton wound
up with a 8-1 record while Syra-
cuse was 7-3.
Dartmouth piled up 271 points
and yielded only 71. Its other vic-
tims were New Hampshire, Holy
Cross, Penn, Brown, Harvard,
Yale, Columbia and Cornell.
In the balloting for the trophy,
Dartmouth collected 119 points
on 11 votes for first place and one
for second. Princeton had 103
Points and Syracuse 102. Navy,
Penn State, Army, Boston' Col-
lege, Colgate, Harvard and Massa-
chusetts rounded out the top 10.

NEW YORK-Dick McGuire, a
long-time National Basketball As-
sociation backcourt star and for-
mer coach of the Detroit Pistons,
was named coach of the New York
Knickerbockers, replacing Harry
Gallatin, last night.
Gallatin, who played with Mc-
Guire on Knickerbocker teams
during the 1950's, replaced Eddie
Donavan as the Knicks coach last
Jan. 3 when Donavan was named
general manager.
MeGuire, who coached the Pis-
tons for four seasons, takes over
immediately and will handle the
Knicks against St. Louis in Madi-
son Square Garden tonight.

Cotton Bowl-Arkansas, 10-0, vs.
LSU, 7-3.
Sugar Bowl-Missouri, 7-2-1, vs.

California Angels signed Lew
Burdette, veteran National League
pitcher released by Philadelphia
two months ago, to a 1966 base-
ball contract yesterday.
The 39-year-old right-hander,
signed as a free agent by the
American League club, will rejoin
Fred Haney, the Angels general
manager who was his field man-
ager at Milwaukee from 1956 to
California Manager Bill Rigney
said, "I think Lew can be an as-
set to the Angels. Being new to
the American League might give
him a new lease on life. I certain-
ly think he can be a,steadying in-
fluence on our young pitchers."
Amaz-ed Fn
See Alindor;
Beat Bruns
Lew Alcindor, highly rated 7'1% "
'freshman, scored 31 points Satur-
day night against the UCLA var-
sity to lead the frosh to a 75-60
victory. The UCLA varsity is rank-
ed first in the nation by both the
AP and UPI pollsg.
The two-time collegiate chain-
pions were as stunned as the
12,051 fans who inaugurated the
new Pauley Pavilion and saluted
Bruin coach Johnny Wooden.
The towering Alcindor, a former
prep star from Power Memorial
High School in New York, proved
every bit as good as advertised.
Scoring 12 points in the first
half, he boosted the freshman to
a 36-31 lead, then saved his real
drive for the final 20 minutes.
His shots were short jumpers
and a variety of dazzling tip-ins.
The huge center also dominated
the game on defense, blocking
shots and forcing the varsity to
shoot almost entirely from the
outside. In his spare time, he grab-
bed 21 rebounds.
The talent-laden freshmen also
made use of Lucius Allen, another
high school All-American from
Kansas City, Kan., who scored 16
points. Lynn Schackelford scored
third highest for the frosh with
14 points.
On the varsity, Mike Lynn top-
ped the scorers with 12 points,
Doug McIntosh added 10 and
sophomore guard Don Saffer got
nine, all in the second half.
The Uclans open their season at
home, starting with two Big Ten
opponents, Ohio State on Friday
and Illinois on Saturday.
