Once you learn to ride a bike
or swim, you don't forget.
Unfortunately for the Michigan
basketball team, the skilled re-
bounding doesn't 'work quite the
same way. It's a knack that some-
times you have and sometimes
The Wolverines lost the art on
Saturday and almost lost a game
to lowly Wisconsin. And with the
team still sucking wind from that
effort, they have to remain coiled
for more jumping duty tonight at
8 p.m. when they host Illinois at
Yost Field House.
Assistant Coach Jim Skala has
scouted the Illini twice and comes
to the conclusion that one of the
best ways to beat them is on the
boards.,Skala, who relishes a good
rebound, also said the same for
the Badger encounter. The close
shave indicates the sagacity of his
But the statistics show there is
no reason for the Wolverines to
fret. Four of the five Illinois start-
ers don't measure up to the 6'5"
proportions of Michigan's John
Clawson. And get this. Clawson
is next to the shortest guy on the
Blue's starting team.
Even more hilarious, one of Il-
linois' forwards is listed at 6'1 1/2".
That's puny even for a decent
I-M team. This particular forward,
however, is a little above intra-

Duke Retains First
His name is Don Freeman and
Wisconsin Coach Johnny Erick-
son calls him "probably the best
player in the league." Cazzie Rus-
sell and Lou Hudson might have
escaped Erickson's thoughts at the
moment that statement was made,
but Freeman is among the best.
"He's certainly among the top
five," nods Skala. "And as for
jumping, he plays like he's 6'6".
He just about jumps out of the
He might be too short for the
NBA, and a group called the Har-
lem Globetrotters are hoping
that's the case.
Freeman is averaging about 25
points per outing, pickup up
oodles of assists, and snaring more
rebounds than a fellow his size
Another Illini who evens out
the rebounding story is center
Rich Jones, the lone starter taller
than Clawson. At 6'7", sophomore
Jones has been averaging 18
points a game in conference play.
Skala notes that many of his tal-
lies are off tip-in shots.
Jones replaces the graduated
Skip Thoren who was four inches
taller, but Illinois Coach Harry
Combes is pleased with Jones'
greater speed which enables the
team to do more running.
His main disadvantage is inex-
perience at playing with his back
to the basket, the spot a pivot
man is in. Many feel Jones wouldI
be more comfortable at forward
where he would be more able to
take advantage of a delicate jump
Guard Jim Dawson is only six
feet tall and is not the type who
dominates the backboards. But
his 17 points a game scoring aver-
age points out another character-
istic of the Illini.
They can shoot. Dawson, Jones
and Freeman give Illinois three of
the Big Ten's top scorers. Last
Friday, the team took on Notre
Dame after a long lay off for
finals. As a result, they should
have been rusty. The actual result
was a shellacking for the Irish
as the Illini's run and shoot tac-
tics netted 120 points.
Combes crew is still in the run-
ning for the title with a 3-1 rec-
ord, although a weak defense
should result in too many defeats
for them to win it all.
But if they're just getting into
the swing of things with their hot
shooters, the Wolverines had bet-
ter be braced for a determined
push. The Illini would like to help
Michigan forget what it's like to
be the champ.
TV and Tickets
Michigan's basketball game with
the Illini will be televised via
WKBD, Channel 50, starting 45
minutes after the opening tip-off,
at 8:45 p.m. There are still some
tickets left for the contest.

a bit this year.
That 60-yard dash, by the way,
was won by Notre Dame's Bill
Hurd in the meet and fieldhouse
record time of 6.0 seconds (the
world record is 5.9). Hurd, a soph-
omore, runs with his arms held
straight and away from his body,
leaning forward more than most
runners--all of which makes him
look like a bird getting ready to
zoom off into the sky.
Other top performances were
turned in by Jack Harvey and
Steve Leuchtman, who copped
first and second places in the
shot put, respectively. Harvey's

Tom Kearney, a Michigan fresh-
man (running unattached in the
open division) clocked a 1:55.9
half mile to take second place in
that event, while Watler Norris
took second in the broad jump.
Woody Fox, a sophomore, took
third in the high hurdles. Other
third place medals were won by
Brian Kelly in the three-quarter
mile, Elmer Morales in the 1000-
yard run, and freshman Steve
Bishop - competing unattached -
in the two-mile run.
Michigan freshmen performed
very well in the novice division,
too, claiming four firsts and
numerous other places.
Bob Johnson smashed the old
shot-put record with a toss - of
49'11/2", while Ron Kutchinski
reeled off a record 1:12.4 in the
600 to win that event. Larry Mid-
lam tied a novice record in win-
ning the 60-yard high hurdles in
Gary Knickerbocker and Bill
Davis took first and third in the
high jump with heights of 6'6"
and 6'4", respectively. Jim Olson
took two places, finishing second
in the half mile and third in the
Big Meet Coming
Both the freshmen and the var-
sity have another big meet this
weekend - the Michigan Relays,
which will be held in Yost Field
Top teams such as Michigan
State, Western Michigan, Miami of
Ohio and many others will be
competing, with the novice divi-
sion going at it on Friday and the
open division on Saturday.
Tradition and Yost Fieldhouse
have their sacred spots in the
hearts of Wolverine fans, but for
Craig Dill the inherent glamour of
Michigan's a n c i e n t basketball
home is little compensation for a
severely cut ear.
Dill was injured yesterday dur-
ing practice when one of the
backboards shattered while he was
dunking the ball. Yesterday's was
the second backboard to meet such
an inexplicable end this season-
a phenomenon not altogether
pleasing to the basketball players.
Age and the low temperatures
(inside) are the two most plausible
reasons for the "explosion."
Dill was taken to the hospital,
but reports indicate that the in-
jury is not critical or permanent.
The 6'10" center will probably play
with a protective guard on his ear
in tonight's contest.
