Michigan's "tiger in the tank"
basketball bench, may be ready to
providea burst of power-in addi-
tion to extra mileage.
Unlike the reserves of Caesar's
legions who were called into action
only when the frontline faltered,
the Wolverine reserves have been
getting a workout on the firing
"A bench becomes especially
important to a team at this time
in the season, with six games com
ing up in 16 days. All of our play-
ers are going to have to be good,
not just the starters," explained
,Coach Dave Strack.
In the last couple games, the
Michigan mentor has started sub-
stituting midway .through the first
half, and even Cazzie Russell has
been a non-perspiring spectator at
the final buzzer. True, the point
spread has been averaging 17.5
points, but "the reserves have at
times improved the tempo of the
"I don't think we're hurting our-
selves by putting some of these
boys in," says Strack, whose team's
league-leading 7-1 record reflects
4 either a strong nucleus or a bal-
anced system of attack.
For Michigan this season, those
"balancers, who have been sit-
ting dangerously, inconspicuously
on the wood benches while the
opening lineup took the bows on
the floor before gametime, include
Dennis Bankey, Craig Dill, Jim
Pitts and Dan Brown. The four
have been worth more than a consec
dozen of Hannibal's elephants to Sagin

Sophomore Pitts, who delighted
the crowd last weekend while he
gunned for the shot to put Mich-
igan over the century mark, has
finally recovered from a bout with
tonsilitis. He played guard against
both Indiana and Wisconsin while
Russell roved the front court.
He will be the third returning
letterman next fall, and "depend-
ing upon his own perserverance,
he should have an excellent chance
of making the starting team."
Which means one of this year's
frosh will have a rough battle to
avoid joining the 'bench.'
Not that such a plight cannot
have its rewards. Senior Dan
Brown has been a benchwarmer
for two championship Wolverine
teams and is still a reserve this
season. However, Strack has been
plugging him in for John Clawson
at forward with "no hesitation" in
the conference games.
"He made an important basket
for us in the Ohio State game and
is a capable corner man."
How does Michigan's depth1

"I don't feel that our bench is
substantially weaker than any
other 'in the conference, although
I did think before the season that
Iowa had the best eight or nine
players overall . . .," answered
Strack. (The Hawkeyes h a v e
plummeted from a contending po-
sition into the second division.)
He added that second-place
Michigan State "has an adequate
bench. When Stan Washington
fouled out in a recent game, his
replacement led a surge which in-
creased State's winning margin."
Minnesota, the other leading
threat to Michigan's crown, has
at least six experienced personnel.
Paul Presthus, who took over for
Lou Hudson when he broke his
wrist, is now an alternate third
man up front with starters Archie
Clark and Dennis Dvorchek, since
But from all indications, Mich-
igan's "tigers" could be the key
determinant to how "smooth" the
ride is for those last six games.

ELIGIBLE FOR NCAA'S:
Relaymen Qualify, Lead Team at State
By JOHN SUTKUS
The Michigan cindermen were
in some fast company in the
Michigan State Relays, but they
still managed to make a respect-
Yearly, the Relays are one of
the biggest college indoor track
meets in the Midwest. This year,
over 450 athletes from 27 mid-
western schools competed. Besides

gan, Michigan State, Indiana,
Purdue and Northwestern, Big

nent independents such as Detroit,
Loyola of Chicago, Notre Dame
and Air Force sent representatives.
MSU's Jenison Field House was
all decked out in red, white and
blue bunting and green sawdust
for the occasion.
A crowd of more than 4000 track
fans watched four meet records
and two field house records fall
to the excellent field of cinder-
No team scoring was compiled,
in keeping with the Relays' policy
of helping to develop individuals
for future dual and championship
Despite a lack of first-place
trophies, Coach Don Canham was
pleased with the Wolverines' per-
formance. Especially satisfying
were the performances of the two-
mile and one-mile relay teams.
Both teams qualified for the NCAA
championships in Detroit, March
11 and 12.
Two Mile: Two
The two-mile team placed sec-
ond behind Notre Dame. The Irish
led at the start, but Michigan's
Jim Mercer kept close and by the
time he passed to baton to Ken
Coffin, the Wolverines had the
lead, Coffin opening it to 20 yards.
Then, Elmo Morales took over
and ripped off a 1:54 half mile to
gain the fastest Michigan se
ment, but the Irish closed the go
to only five yards. Notre Dame
Ed Dean took the lead from a:
