SDynamic Duo Key to Illini in

I

By CHUCK VETZNER
It is with understandable prej-
Audice that Michigan basketball
Coach Dave Strack bubbles with
joyful effusiveness when present-
ed with an opportunity to praise
his own band.
But when talking about an op-
posing player, Strack tends to be
parsimonious with the sugar-
frosted adjectives. Instead, he'll
wrinkle up his brow, think for a
minute, and come to the conclu-
sion that the foe is "good." Even
then you sort of get the feeling
he's not satisfied with the word.
He'd prefer something to make it
clearer that the man in question
is not in a class with people like
Cazzie Russell.
Yesterday, however, Strack was
ready to admit that Rich Jones
and Don Freeman are "awfully
good." At least they were Tues-
day when they sparked Illinois'
09-93 win over the Wolverines.
"We weren't quite sure what to
expect from lthem," Strack ex-
plains, "but we sure didn't expect
64 points."
To anyone watching the game
on ,television, they must have ap-
peared to be the most dynamic
duo since Batman and Robin hit
the airwaves.
Freeman, who has hindered
Michigan before, played his best
game ever against the Wolver-
ines. Although he doesn't even
reach a full 6'2", he popped in 33

points and was the game's lead-
ing rebounder with 12.
Holy Jumping Jacks
Jones, the sophomore boy won-
der, took about 20 minutes to
really get the feel for the tussle.
He spent the first period gather-
ing 10 points and four fouls, but
in the second stanza, he was at
his unsophomoric best and netted
21 more points.
"In the first half, he just didn't
seem very good," gasped Strack.
Despite the brilliance of Messrs.
Jones and Freeman, Michigan
UAC, U Are Cowards
We know you're waiting with
baited breath for the score of
the Daily-UAC game. There
is none.
The UAC (which evidently
stands for UnAble to Concen-
trate) went to Waterman Gym
while The Daily stalwarts
marched to the IM Building
where the game was supposed
to be played. Said a UAC
spokesman contacted by phone,
"I guess we were more inter-
ested in the party afterwards
than the game." Typical.
Meanwhile, The Daily Libeds
ran through a rigorous practice.
Daily Captain "Lloyd the Leap-
er" Graff expressed Libel senti-
ment. "They're afraid of us,
like the Regents, administra-,
tion and campus girls."

stayed right with the Illini un-
til the very end. One of the rea-
sons was, of course, CazzieRus-
sell who had an "average" night,
shooting his number, 33.
Swish, Swish
Also helping out was Jim Myers
and his automatic 20-foot jump-
er. In the first half, John Claw-
son had scored 14 points while
being guarded by Freeman. To
start the second,' Illinois Coach
Harry Combes moved Jones closer
to the basket to help shut off
Clawson.
This left the long-haired, un-
shaven Myers (known as "Shaggy"
in certain sections of Yost) open
at the top of the key.
Combes strategy did hold Claw-
son to only six in the second per-
iod and also helped keep Free-
man and Jones in the game.
Both Illinois' stars played the
second half with four personals,
but they were now guarding a
man who wasn't shooting, and as
a result they did not have to put
themselves in a position of draw-
ing the deadly fifth foul.
Jones and Deon Flessner, who
sounds more like a rock 'n roll
singer than a forward, eventually
did foul out, but by that time
Jones had already done more than
an evening's work.
The Reason Why
If blame for the loss has to be
tangibly explained, the best sta-
tistic to consider is Illinois' 70
per cent shooting percentage in

SENIOR GYMNAST:
Cashman---Tall on High Bar

II

I

By BILL LEVIS
"John Cashman has certainly
been a very sincere and consci-
entious gymnast these last four
years. For one not endowed with
a great deal of natural talent, he
has produced a fine competitive
record." So spoke Coach Newt
Loken about one of the Big Ten
champion's important but lesser
known participants.
John, a senior, has not receiv-
ed a great deal of publicity be-
cause-he is a one event man. He
limits his competition strictly to
the high bar. Thus, if he does
not do well in that one event he
has nowhere to make up the lost
ground.
This has not seemed to affect
John in the past though. In the
past two years, he has finished
fifth in the Big Ten high bar
competition. Last year, he fin-
ished first among the Wolverines,
closely followed by since graduat-
ed Alex Frecska and all-around
gymnast Gary Vander Voort.
When asked about Coach Newt
Loken and his effect on his per-
formance, John said, "Coach Lok-
en is one of the best in the coun-
try. he improves on the basic
training we have acquired while
in high school." John learned the
basic techniques at New Trier

High School in a suburb of Chi-
cago.
As far as this year is concern-
ed, John feels that he has not
performed up to par. "I was sick
before Christmas," he explained,
"so I was not in good shape for
the Ohio State, meet. Last week
against Wisconsin, I missed my
best trick."
Cashman has been working on
his routine and hopes to perform
better the rest of the season. He
explained, "It is my last year here,
and I feel like I want to do some-
thing." John sees Scott Paris and
Gary Vander Voort as his top
competitors in the high bar. He
looks to Michigan State's Jim
Curzi, the national champion i
the high bar, as the biggest threat
to him and to the rest of the
high bar squad.
Airborne Plans
John is currently enrolled in
aeronautical engineering and plans
either to continue in graduate

school or to go to Lockheed for
air training in California. From
there, he wants to secure a com-
mercial flying license.
Right now, Cashman is presi-
dent of the Michigan Flying Club.
Last year, he piloted a plane for
the skydivers of the University
Parachuting Club.
As for the remainder or the
season, John has high hopes for
a sixth straight Big Ten crown
for the Michigan gymnasts. "Our
next meet, against Iowa, will be
one of the two main focuses of
the season. The other is, of course,
our meeting against Michigan
State."
As Coach Loken pointed out
about Cashman, in the final an-
alysis, "His performance and his
record of consistence routines is
indicative of hard work during
each week on his part. He is a
very fine young man that will
surely be a success in his profes-
sional life."

CLEVELAND, Ohio (A') - At
halftime Jefferson led 1-0. After
three quarters it was 4-4.
"The fourth quarter was a real
barn-burner," said Chardon Coach
Hal Wilcox - after his Chardon
High School basketball team lost
to Jefferson High 25-18 in a game
dominated by Jefferson High's
slow break style.
"Our players were so distraught
they couldn't play up to their
capabilities," Wilcox said.
