ILLINOIS CAPTAIN JIM DAWSON (24) goes up for a jumper
from the key as UCLA's Lew Alcindor (33) moves in to block the
shot during last week's Los Angeles Classic. Dawson has become
one of the key men in the Illini attack since the suspension of
three players.1
Cagers Open at Home
Against Northwestern

(Continued from Pacs S)
And action there was, too, as
Michigan rebounded well from the
setback of the previous evening.
Dill, Stewart and Dennis Bankey
all started fast as Michigan
stormed to leads of 11-4, 19-6, and
26-12 before the Badgers got on
their game. , Against UCLA the
night before, Wisconsin had
stunned the Bruins for ten min-
utes trailing at one point just 20-
19, but UCLA had routed them in
the next 30 minutes for the 100-
56 margin.
Thus, neither Michigan nor Wis-
consin, knowing that this game
was meaningless anyway and that
they would meet again in a con-
ference game in just two weeks,
were very excited about the game.
But the Wolverines were more
excited than the Badgers, and held
their early lead though it was
narrowed to 50-40 at the half and
60-55 early in the second half.
Again Dill was successful on.his
free throw line jump shots and the
lead quickly was put back up to
15.
Michigan Offense Impressive
A late Badger rally against the
Michigan substitutes made the
final margin 98-88, the best Mich-
igan offensive effort of the season.
Dill led the scoring with 24
points, including 11 of 20 from
the field and he was well flank-
ed by Bankey, who hit eight out
of 10 in his best offensive burst
of the season for 16 points, Jim
Pitts who rebounded from a pal-
try four against Georgia Tech to
hit 18, Bob Sullivan, who had
13 in the first half and finished
with 19 and Dennis Stewart who
had 11 of 12 free throws and 17
points.
Guard Mike Carn led the
Badgers with 22, and Wisconsin
finished with a very respectable
shooting percentage of 50.1, but
made more errors than the Wol-
verines.
Said Strack, "I'd say we play-
ed about as well as you could ex-
pect us to play against Wisconsin,
considering that -it was a consola-
tion game. We took a pretty good'
lead and sustained it. And it was
encouraging coming back off the
second half that we had against
Georgia Tech. I think they wanted
to show that they could play bet-
ter than that and they did."
Basketball and Beef
Following' the win over Wiscon-
sin, the Wolverines stayed to see
half of the Arkansas-Arizona bat-
tle which Arkansas eventually
pulled out in overtime to earn the
right to play Michigan. In the
meantime, Coach Strack had tak-
en the team and his own family
out to dinner at the famous Low-
rey's restaurant which holds an
annual fete for members of Rose
Bowl teams.
The players consumed their fair
share of the inch thick roast beef,

then returned satiated and watch-
ed as the hungry Bruins disposed
of Georgia Tech 91-72, though
they had spotted the fired up
Jackets an early 11-5 lead. Alcin-
dor put in only 18 points in this
game but he wasn't exactly silent,
passing off for 10 assists and grab-
bing 24 rebounds, just seven less
than the whole Tech team.
Hewitt Leads USC
In the other semi-final match,
USC with All-Tournament forward
Bill Hewitt hitting 22 points, came
from a 56-41 deficit to edge Illi-
nois 73-72. The Illini got the ball
with four seconds to go in the
game but the clock ran out be-
fore they could call time out. The
horn did nots ound, however, and
the game was not declared over
until after the officials conferred
with the timekeeper.
The Wolverine-Razorback duel
was at 3:30 the next afternoon.
Arkansas played well but was hurt
by excessive fouling. Four of their
starters, including center John
Rowland who had 31 points, fouled
out, two of them fairly early in
the second half.
Michigan didn't capitalize on the
free throw opportunities, making
just 22 out of 40 from the line,
but Arkansas didn't have any one
on except Rowland. From the
field, Michigan hit an even 50 per
cent, with Bankey bagging four of
six, Dill six of nine and Stewart
eight of 15.
SArkansas held an early 20-14
lead sbut theWolverines ' scored

Strack commented that he'd "be
disappointed if Michigan didn't
make its presence felt in the race."
Then, clouding his confidence
with cautiousness, he added, "Let's
wait and let the games tell the
story."
Tomorrow's clash with North-
western will be the first chapter.
Coach Larry Glass' Cats have
relied heavily on senior guard Jer-
ry Burns and his wizardly shoot-
ing power. When Burns slumped in
the New York tournament, North-
western dropped to Providence and
Rhode Island.
With Burns and senior Ron Koz-
licki on target, the Wildcats pass-
ed the century mark three times
in eight games and have a 95 ppg
average to pace the Big Ten in

linois (at Champaign) and with
MSU (at home) plus Tuesday and
Monday night dates with Wiscoh-
sin and Iowa (at Madison and
Iowa City) in one of the sternest
opening stretches around the con-
ference.
Coaches usually stubbornly in-
sist on dodging questions on "who's
going to finish first" with con-
ciliatory remarks like "the league
is so well-balanced it's hard to
tell."
This year, however, the line is
really convincing.
There could be a two-way, three-
way or even 10-way tie.'
Bear Bryant keeps telling every-
one that "some of the boys who
played for Notre Dame and Michi-
gan State will go into the armed
forces and I sure don't want to

game we might end up losing all
three. But we showed that we could
bounce back and as I reflect back,
I can't say that I was really too
disappointed. ,
"I hope we can use this week to
get ready for Northwestern which
is of course, our first really big
game. Our problem is still becom-
ing a team. The players have to
learn to let the offense do the
work for them, meaning that if
they would run the plays as they
are supposed to it would take much
of the effort out of playing."
Player of the Tournament
Illinois bounced back from their
loss to USC and whipped Georgia
Tech 83-71 for third place. Sopho-
more Dave Scholls, replacing sus-
pended Rich Jones at center in a
spectacular manner, scored 22

points and was named to the All-
Tournament team, along with
Hewitt of USC, Rowland of Ar-
kansas, and Warren and Alcindor
of UCLA. Alcindor, scoring 25 as
the Bruins thundered to a 64-39
halftime lead against USC, for the
title, was named Player of the
Tournament. The final score of
the one-sided championship match
was 107-83. Previously, in the sea-
son's opener, UCLA had experienc-
ed more trouble with USC, win-
ning 105-90 as Alcindor scored 56
points. The tw oteams will meet
twice more before the season ends.

again. The halftime lead was 38-
34, which was pushed up to 50-39
early in the second half, after
which the'lead was never less than
five points.
Respectable Record
"We took some pride, at least, in
the fact that we won the last two
games and enter the Big Ten with
a fairly respectable 6-4 record,"
commented Strack. "I hope we can
avoid any more repetitions of the
type of play we exhibited against
Georgia Tech. Against Wisconsin
and Arkansas we made only a few
errors which was encouraging."
Asked about specific players,
Strack said "Stewart has played
well at times, but at times he has
played poorly. He's making prog-
ress though and he still scores
easier than any player on our
team.
"Pitts is still our most solid ball
player and Bankey had a real
fine tournament. I'd like to see
Dill do a little bit more for us,
especially under the backboards,
but his play has improved too."
"The tournament as a whole
could have done us harm. I was
afraid that after the Georgia Tech

DURHAM -Some of the nine'
Duke players Coach Vic Bubas
suspended Tuesday night for
breaking training may play/in the
team's game against third-ranked
North Carolina tomorrow.
The nine players, including four
starters on the varsity, were sus-
pended shortly before Duke's home
game with Penn State. Duke won,
89-84. Bob Verga, the only reg-
ular in the lineup, scored 38
points.I
Coach Bubas said Wednesday
some of the players might be in-
vited to attend practice sessions
this week.
"It's going to depend on our
meetings with the I oys," he said.

Asked -if any of the nine would
be allowed to play in Duke's next
game - at home against North
Carolina - tomorrow afternoon,
Bubas said:,"Possibly."
Bubas stood by his decision not
to spebify what training regula-
tions were violated by the play-
ers. It was speculated that the
infractions occurred last weekend,
possibly New Year's Eve.
. "Temporarily suspended were
junior Mike Lewis, senior Bob Rie-
dy, sophomore Dave Golden and
junior Tim Kolodjiez-ll starters.
Also suspended were reserves
junior Tony Barone, junior War-
ren Chapman, junior Ron Wende-
lin, junior Joe Kennedy and soph-
omore Jim Micardo.
