time . . . providing the game is in
Iowa City.
Dave Strack of Michigan? Heck,
he doesn't care who, where or
when his Wolverines play .
providing they win. And winning
in grand fashion is exactly what
they are doing.
The Michigan blitzing offense
has been sweeping through the Big
Ten at an average of better than
96 points a game. With two games
to go, and a one game lead on the
Spartans, the Wolverines are
maintaining the quiet confidence
of a team that has gone through
the pressure before.
Say Good-byes
Saturday, they will host North-
western as the squad bids adieu
to Yost for the season. The game
which will be televised regionally
(channel 2 in Detroit) begins at
4 p.m.
Then on Monday, the Wolver-
ines journey to East Lansing to
play before a sell-out crowd. Un-
less MSU loses to Indiana on
Saturday, the Wolverine contest
will be for the NCAA tournament
bid. A Michigan win over the

ot for
Wildcats would clinch a tie for thef
title, but conference rules stipulate!
that in the case of a dead heat,
the invitation goes to the team
which has been waiting patiently
for the longer time.
Michigan hasn't missed a tour-
ney in two years, but the general:
feeling in Ann Arbor is that a:
third one would be nice too. Mon-
day's win over Iowa gave evidence:
that the Wolverines might haveJ
their way. Hawkeye coach Ralph!
Miller said his team played as well
as they had all year, but they still,
finished 15 points behind.
Change in Scenery
A week ago, Iowa pulled out a
victory at their home court and
plainly played superior basketball.
Aside from the change in scenery,'
the differences were a fantastic
Wolverine shooting percentage of
63.6, and improved board and de-!
fensive play.
At halftime, the rebounding sta-
tistics were equal, but when the
game was over, Michigan was'
ahead by 13. Defense was the big
problem inthe first encounter as
Iowa consistently moved in for
easy baskets at close range. This
time the Hawks sensed something
was up because even at the be-
ginning of the game they started
taking some long jumpers, longer7
than shots they passed up in the
first clash. '
Michigan started out in a zone:
but quickly switched to a man-to-
man which was used until late in
the second half when John Claw-3
son picked up his fourth foul. "We
decided to start with the press
and the zone," explained assistant
Jim Skala, "and if we fell behind, a
we would switch.
"The main thing was that our
players weren't losing their men. I

We looked at the films and they
saw how Iowa was, getting loose.
We preach, 'be a man-and-a-half
on defense,' but in the first game
sometimes we looked like half a
man."
The erratic Wildcats will give
the Wolverines another chance to
test their he-man defensive styles
and rebounding prowess. Center
Jim Pitts doesn't like to shoot, but
he is leading the Big Ten in re-
bounding with better than 15 per
game. Taking most of the shots is
guard Jim Burns, who specializes
in driving the base line.
First Meetingj
In the first meeting of the year
between these two clubs, Michigan
trailed through much of the con-
test until a spurt pushed them
ahead in the second half. At times
this season, NU has played superb-
ly and other times they have been
atrocious. After winning their
first game of the year against
Purdue, the Wildcats dropped five
straight, won five straight, and
finally lost theirbmost recent out-
ing. At their best they lost to
fifth-rated Vanderbilt by one
point.
One note of consistency is their
performance against Michigan.
They haven't beaten the Wolver-
ines since Cazzie Russell started
playing, and with Cazzie and six
other seniors (Dan Brown, John
Thompson, John Clawson, Van
Tillotson, Jim Myers, and Captain
Oliver Darden) playing their last
game at home, they don't intend
to change the tradition.

The final countdown is near-
ing completion, and although it is
for nothing as dramatic as a space
shot, the count means almost as
much to a group of athletes down
at Yost Field House.
They have been waiting for this
weekend to arrive ever since Sep-
tember, when it seemed like the
first dual meet was an eternity
away. The grueling workouts, long
practices, experimentation and just
plain sweat became awfully fa-
maliar to the squad.
But the countless number of
hours spent in preparation will
show their results Friday and Sat-
urday, some in the span of six
seconds, others stretched over nine
minutes, as the Wolverine cinder-

Spring Football
Yesterday, the Michigan thin-
clads went through a light work-
out, with a relaxed atmosphere
prevailing. Shot putter Jack Har-
vey and Bob Gerometta, who spe-
cializes in the 440, tossed a pig-
skin around, while a few of their
teammates jogged laps on the cin-
ders. Call it the calm before the
storm, because come Friday, every
Wolverine will be expected to make
the supreme effort.
As assistent coach Dave Martin
explained, "We've got a pretty
good team, but we're not a great
team. Michigan State is going to
be real rough to beat, especially

with all the points they're going

going to do anything this week-
end, it's going to take a top-
notch performance from every
man."
Martin pointed to Wisconsin as
another prime contender for the
conference laurels. "Of the two
though, you'd have to give the
edge to State," he continued. "We
rate as a darkhorse at best."
The hurdles equal power when
connected with the Spartan track
team. Every other team is going
to start at a marked disadvantage
because of Michigan State su-
premacy in this event. Barring'
virtual disaster, the MSU foursome
of Gene Washington; Clinton
Jones, Bob Steele, and Fred Mc-
Koy should take at least three of

the top five places in the high
hurdles and low hurdles.
Harvey in the Shot
Martin pointed to Wolverine
junior Jack Harvey as Michigan's
most likely candidate for first
place. Harvey owns the best toss
in the Big Ten for 1966, a 58'
plus heave of two weeks ago. An-
other Michigan putter, Steve
Leuchtman, stands an excellent
chance of placing.
The field events could help the
Wolverines make up some lost
ground. Besides the shot put,
Michigan exhibits strength in both
the high jump and the pole vault.
Sophomore Rick Hunt has consist-
ently cleared the bar at 6'6" all
season, while Bob Densham ap-
pears to be back in top form, also
jumping 6'6" last week. Wolver-
ine captain George Canamare
must be rated a threat in the pole
vault on the-'basis of his 15'9"
journey into the clouds last spring.
Turning to the sprints, more
Spartan names clutter the list of
the conference best. Jim Summers
is their leading dash man, with
Jim Garrett close behind. Garrett
has only run a' :06.4 this .season,
but he is notorious for turning in
surprises in the championships. A
young man from Illinois, Cyril
Pinder,rmay steal some points
away from MSU here, though.
The sophomore, who also high
jumps and throws the shot, has a
:06.1 timing to his credit.
Michigan entries in the 60-yard
dash, include Dorie Reid, Willie
Brown, and Carl Ward all with a
:06.3 clocking.
Distance Threats
Northwestern's Craig Boydston
ranks number one in the distance
events. He has broken 4:10 in the
mile twice this year. The defend-
ing champion in the mile, Spar-
tan Keith Coates, has been un-
impressive thus far.
With a 9:13.7 recorded in the
two-mile last week, Wolverine sen-
ior Ted Benedict is a good bet to
add points to the Michigan ledger
in that department. Badger Bar-
ney Peterson will have to contend
with Wolverine Elmo Morales to
take the 880-yard run.
Iowa must be given the nod in
the mile relay. The Hawkeyes,
With three returnees from last
year's record-breaking unit, turn-
ed in a 3:14.9 last week.
It will be an uphill battle for
the Wolverines, but they've made
the climb before, and can't be
counted out until the last tape
snaps.
