Big Ten Win
By CLARK NORTON
Once upon a time five Michigan
basketball players ran out onto a
court: Someone referred to them
as a "team."
And everyone laughed.
You see, they were last in the
conference, and people were won-
dering when they were ever going
to win a game.
Especially since league-leading
Michigan State was coming to
town.
John Benington, Spartan head
coach,, referred to the Wolverines
as "the best last place team ever."
And everyone laughed again.
You see, when you're in last]
place nobody really cares whether
you could have beaten any num-
ber of the world's worst team's.
And Then ...
Then the five Michigan cagers,
with help from two substitutes,
totaled more points in a'40 min-
ute time period than the visitors
from Michigan State, 81-59.
And when someone said, ",Hey'
that means we won a GAME,"
everyone laughed. And cheered.
And shouted.
Strange things happen in this
world.
They started happening in Yost
Field House yesterday afternoon]
shortly after Spartan Art Baylor
tipped in a missed jump shot with
less than four minutes gone in the
contest. That made the score 7-6
In favor of the Green-clad outfit
from East Lansing. They should
have relished the moment.
Craig Dill, sinking the second of
five consecutive shots on which he
connected in the opening ten min-
utes of action, shot the Wolverines
into the lead, 8-7, only 12 seconds
later. Michigan State never caught
up again.

-Daily--Thomas R. Copi
NOTHING WAS too fancy for Craig Dill yesterday. Dill, who
claims it was his best game ever, lays the ball up backwards over
his head. Lee Lafayette futilely tries to stop the scoring play.

The closest they managed to
come was 14-12, but Michigan rat-
tled off ten straight points on a
combination of Dill jumpers and
a well-balanced sprinkling of
buckets from Dennis Stewart, Jim
Pitts, Bob Sullivan, and Dennis
Bankey.
Michigan came out all full of
surprises. They worked plays. They
passed the ball. They got some
offensive rebounds. And even some
defensive rebounds. They had few
turnovers.
By the time Bankey had com-
pleted the ten-point splurge by
stealing a pass underneath his

own basket and converting a lay-
up (in the process drawing Spar-
tan forward Art Baylor's fourth
foul) ten minutes of play had been
completed. But it might as well
have been 40.
Michigan State could not find
the range from 20 feet, as they
attempted to shoot over Dave
Strack's 2-3 zone. But Pitts, Sul-
livan, and Stewart continually,
popped from the outside, and Ken
Maxey and Dave McClellan came
off the bench to accept perfect
passes from Dill on the high post
to convert unmolested layups.
The half ended 42-32.

Pulling Away
Michigan opened up an 18-pointh
margin with a little over four min-
utes to play as Pitts took advant- P

ayette's four fouls to move in

and sink a twisting layup. Bankey,
as he and Maxey had been doing
continually throughout the game,
proceeded to race through the
Michigan State defense for an
open layup, bringing the score to
75-57.
7 Benington immediately let sub-
stitutes finish the game. They
managed to pick up only two
points to Michigan's six in the
final moments.
Lafayette, who entered thel
game with a 17 point season av-
erage and a mountain of press
clippings, was held scoreless in
the second half and wound up
with a dismal eight points. Center
Matthew Aitch and Rymal led the
Spartan attack with 17 tallies
each, but no one else was able to
break into double figures.

... But 'M' Swimmers Stumble

By DOUG HELLER
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING--Just to prove
that things like this don't happen
only in basketball or only to Mich-
igan State, the Michigan swim-
ming team came through with a
slipshod performance yesterday
against State at the Spartan's
Pool.
The final score, a 63-60 upset
by MSU, was significant as it was.
the first time a Gus Stager coach-.
ed team lost to Michigan State
since he took over in 1955. It was
only the fourth dual meet loss to
State in 44 contests between the
two rivals.
Coach Stager said he was "dis-
appointed" by the results because,
even though the season is too
young to expect record attempts,
Michigan is below where it should
be.
Major problems started in the
one meter diving event just after
Michigan's 400-yard relay team
had won easily. MSU's Doug Todd
(a surprise starter who had not
dived since the Big Ten. Relays),
just nosed out Michigan's Fred
Brown, in what turned out to be
the best Wolverine diving perform-
ance of the day. Sophomore Jay
Meaden unexpectedly finished last.
The next big slip was in the
three meter diving event where
State's Duane Green and Fred
Whiteford easily outperformed
Brown and Meaden.
Later in the 100 freestyle, the
Wolverines were handicapped fur-
ther when high-ranking Ken Wie-
beck and Bill Groft couldn't come
close to Ken Walsh or Don Rauch.
The rest of the meet followed
this trend, but not to as great an
extent. Still, each disappointment
was crucial because one Wolver-
ine change in position from third
to second or second to first would
have changed the result of the

meet.

tain Carl Robie polished off State's
Ed Glick with Wolverine sopho-
more Mike O'Connor third.-After
MSU's Walsh won the 200-yard
freestyle, Bill Groft came back to
win the 50-yard freestyle in a slow
:21.8.
This was followed by the 200-
yard individual medley where a
tired Robie was edged out by Pete
Williams of State in what Carl
later called a "gamble."
"I found it hard to come back
in the 500 yard freestyle with little
rest against Indiana but actually
had to come back earlier this:

time," he-explained. "As it turned
out, it didn't hurt that much."
This can be verified by the fact
that Robie later won the 500 with
]Mike O'Connor second.
The 200-yard butterfly found Ed
Glick beating the Wolverines' Tom
Arusoo on a judgment call that
could have gone either way (un-
fortunately, MSU's electric timer
is not installed yet).
State's Olympian Gary Dilley
took the 200-yard backstroke from
Russ Kingery. Then, John Rob-
ertson finished an unexpected last
in the 200-yard breaststroke and,I
although Paul Scheerer won the
event, Michigan was mathemat-
ically eliminated before the 400
yard freestyle relay. Nevertheless,
the Wolverines won it anyway.
Stager was very disappointed
with the diving, 100-yard freestyle
and breaststroke performances. He
said that the team was at a turn-
ing point which could lead to
it resembling the one last year
"which let the other guy do the
job instead of each man trying to
do his own."
The coach did defend the prac-
tice of bringing the sprinters
along slowly with the emphasis
on the end of the year, saying
that because of the pressure of
that type of race, a sprinter is at
his best for only a small part of
the season.

' Faces Iowa Mona

Michigan, riding high after
their 81-59 upset victory over
cross-state rival Michigan State
yesterday afternoon, will meet the
Iowa Hawkeyes, 1-2 in the Big
Ten, at 8:30 EST tomorrow night
in Iowa City.
The Wolverines, now sporting a
1-3 conference record, will have to
contend with the Big Ten scoring
leader, guard - forward Sam Wil-
liams, who scored 39 points in a
90-88 heartbreaking loss to North-
western yesterday.
First Season
This is Williams' first Big Ten

All-America recognition two years
in a row at Burlington, Iowa, JC.
He was a high school standout at

Detroit Northern and was highly
sought after by several colleges
including Michigan.
The Wolverines can expect trou-
ble from not only Williams, but
also from junior guard Tom Chap-
man and 6'4" forward Jerry Jones,
a high school chum of Cazzie
Russell.
The Hawkeyes are 8-4 overall
for the season including a seven
game winning streak beginning
Dec. 10 against Drake and ending
with a 79-70 loss to Michigan State
last Saturday.
