By LLOYD GRAFF
The Missouri Valley, famous for
nothing but an occasional flood,
possessing Peoria, and most sig-,
nificantly slam-bang basketball
teams, is now becoming a farm
system for Big Ten coaches.
Last year Ralph Miller left
Wichita, and its marvelous nat-
ural resource, Dave Stallworth, for
Iowa. With "pressure basketball"
and good old roundball fire and
brimstone he transformed letharg-
ic mediocrity into ferocious me-
diocrity. The ferocity netted a vic-
tory over UCLA and a modicum
of respect from the other mem-
bers of the conference.
This year the Hawkeyes are
equally tenacious, but possess more
seasoned talent. An 8-1' record
and seventh rating make them
favorites for the coming confer-
ence season.
Then Forddy Anderson of Mich-
igan State got canned for making
a bad team miserable. John Ben-
nington of St. Louis bopped out
of Gaslight Squaresville for East
Lansing and inherited an excel-
lent freshman team from Ander-
son plus Stan Washington who
might have been the first 26-foot

en-
high jumper if
mind to it.

And suddenly Michigan State
became a winner. The Spartans
have collected seven victories in 10
attempts, however they've topped
nobody of national stature.
With this rather backhanded
introduction of Big Ten basket-
ball, 1966, let's go through a brief
outline of each team's chances.
Thug
* Iowa-The Hawkeyes are ex-
perienced and aggressive. Forward
Gerry Jones and guard Chris Per-
vall should be worth 40 points per
game and springy center George
Peeples is a thug under the boards.
Best hope of beating them is keep-
ing Peeples away from the boards
or fouling him out, because the
rest of the team lacks size.
* Michigan State-Bill Curtis
and Stan Washington defy grav-
ity if not opponents. Sophomore
center Matt Aitch is ponderous but
possesses a dandy touch from 15
feet. Bob Bailey runs the team
smartly at guard with more sa-
voir faire than most sophs. The
Spartans are mean off the boards,

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Ron Murphy's sec-
ond goal of the night capped a
three-goal surge in the third per-
iod and carried the Detroit Red
Wings to a 5-3 victory over the
Boston Bruins in the only Na-
tional Hockey League game played
last night.
The triumph, Detroit's eighth
over the Bruins in as many games
this season, lifted the Red Wings
to within two points of second
place Montreal.
Hank Bassen subbed for regular
Detroit goaltender Roger Crozier,
sidelined by intestinal flu.
Parker MacDonald and Bruce
MacGregor scored earlier in the
third period for the Red Wings.
Murphy notched his first goal of
the night in the first period and
Floyd Smith got the Red Wings'
only marker in the second period.

TOLEDO, Ohio--The Cincinnati
Royals cut loose in the final per-
iod last night and defeated the
Detroit Pistons 109-97 to move
within one-half game of the Bos-
ton Celtics in the National Basket-
ball Association.
The victory was the fourth in
a row and eighth in nine games
for the Royals. while the Pistons
went down to their fourth straight
defeat and 12th in 13 contests.
Harold Hairston and Oscar
Robertson with 13 and 11 points
respectively, paced the final
Royals' surge after the Pistons
had gone ahead 83-82 with eight
minutes remaining.
A .three-pointer by Robertson
and two baskets by Jerry Lucas
put the Royals in front for keeps.
Hairston then hit on five of his
next six shots to put the game
out of reach.

T ankers Prepared;
" Badgers First Foe

By JIM LaSOVAGE
Michigan tankers open their
1966 season this weekend with two
meets that will show just what
they'll be up against in trying for
their first Big Ten championship
since 1960.
The Wolverines face Wisconsin
today in a dual meet and will par-
ticipate in the Big Ten Relays
tomorrow. Last year the tankers
began by disposing of the Badgers
71-34, but the Badgers have im-
proved. Led by breaststroker Bud
Blanchard, Wisconsin has won its
first dual meet against Nebraska
by a 75-20 margin.
But on paper, Michigan looks
to be as good as last spring when
it came in second to Indiana in
the Big Ten meet by only the
margin held by the Hoosiers in
RICH WALLS
diving events. A strong core of
juniors and seniors threaten to
produce the most powerful Wol-
verine squad ever. Only Ed
Bartsch, Lanny Reppert and diver
4 Ed Boothman will be missing from
last year's team.
Records Shattered
As an example of the potential
of these swimmers, only three
varsity records remained unbroken
at the season's end last spring-all
broken by returning lettermen.
Captain Rich Walls, Bill Farley,
Bob Hoag and Rees Orland make
up the senior portion of the team.
The top juniors include Carl
Robie, Bill Groft, Russ Kingery,
Paul Scheerer, Tom O'Malley,
John Vry and Tom Williams.
Seven of these swimmers claim
Big Ten records.
This will be the first test for
Michigan's sophomores. Ken Wie-
beck is the most prominent name
among, them. A high school All-
America, Wiebeck specializes in
the backstroke and finished fifth
in last year's NAAU 200-yard
event as a freshman.
Challenge
Saturday's meet will be a much
larger challenge to the natators.
The meet, which originated at
Michigan 11 years ago, consists of
10 swimming relays and a diving
relay. Last year, at their home
pool, the Wolverines took eight of
the 11 events, outscoring power-
ful Indiana 104-76. Michigan

State, no walkover, totaled 57.5
points.
Besides some of the regular re-
lays, there are 300-yard variations
of the backstroke, breaststroke,
butterfly and individual medley
races. There are also 200- and
2000-yard freestyle relays.
Indiana Still Tough
Indiana won't be easy to beat
again. Coach Jim Counsilman
feels that this could be the best
team he has ever coached. Besides
a strong team of returning.letter-
men, the Hoosiers boast Kevin
Berry, winner of the 200-yard
butterfly in the 1964 Tokyo Olym-
pics, on the sophomore squad.
Indiana's divers, headed by junior
Ken Sitzberger, are unparalleled
in the nation.
Michigan State offers Gary Dil-
ley, a champion backstroker, along
with a powerful group of free-
stylers which includes Ken Walsh
and distance swimmer Ed Glick.
The best of the Big Ten will be
present at the meet. The winner
will take a significant step . to
wards a Big Ten title.

* Minnesota - Without Lou
Hudson the Gophers are just an-
other team. Archie Clark will av-
erage over 25 points per game,,
but he's no one man team. Tom
Kondla is clumsy in the pivot and
forwards Paul Presthus and Den-;
nis Devoracek will never even be
scouted by the pros. When Hud-
son returns, look out. Until then
they will be lucky to break even.
Bucks Tough at Home
" Ohio State-Bob Dove and
Bill Hosket provide muscle and
touch near the bucket. Ron Sepic
is no Nijinsky but he manages in
the backcourt. At St. John Arena
they are fearsome, but on the road
the Bucks inspire little awe.
* Northwestern - In the his-
tory of coaching few men have
botched the job like Larry Glass
did last year. He managed to de-
moralize a team with fabulous
natural ability. The Wildcats seem
to be improved this season so per-
haps Glass is learning. Jim Pitts
may be the best defensive center
in college basketball but his man-
gled knees are unreliable. Ron
Kozlicki is adequate at forward
and Jim Burns rates with Archie3
Clark and Cazzie as the best out-
side shooter in the conference.
Northwestern should break even if
Pitts can survive his last basket-
ball season.
Hoosiers Scurry
" Indiana - The Hoosiers are
green:but have the : advantage of
not being coached by Branch Mc-

than shooter, but he rebounds re-
markably for 6'3". Mark Zubor has
never excelled at center, and there
is little reason to expect a re-
versal of form. Ken Gustafson
is adequate at guard but has ball-
handling deficiencies. Don't lose
sleep over the Badgers.
Runty Weasel
9 Illinois-If two scorers made
a team the Illini might reach
.500. Runty Don Freeman is worth
his weight in points and rebounds.
It's a joy to observe him weasel-
ing around the basket, humbling
the husky opposition. Rich Jones
has averaged 22 points per game
and will probably be the highest
scoring center in the conference.
He's. no Bill Buntin (not even a
Bill Burwell) off the boards, how-
ever. A nonentity named Don
Flessner plays forward, and he
may be the worst starter in the
Big Ten. If the Illini played Pur-
due and Wisconsin all season they
would havea respectable record.
* Purdue - The Boilermakers
boast of Dave Schellhase, the most
overrated player in the conference.
He may average 32 a game but
he folds before intimidating de-
fense like Oliver Darden and Bill
Buntin provided last year. The
rest of the team wouldn't scare
one of Indiana's better high school
outfits. Only sophomore guard
