What Canham has done is to

four of the best middle distance
runners in Michigan history. As

Try Harder, Tillie
After a slow start, the Cougars are coming on stronger than
Tillie's breath. They'll take a 10-5 mark into Friday night's action
in the Stadium against Loyola.
The academic axe fell on All-America guard Bobby Joe Hill, the
5-10 senior guard who helped lead the Miners to the NCAA title last
season. Hill, who owned more moves than a chess tournament, had
appeared in only eight games due to injuries and had a 4.9 scoring
Hill's last game as a Miner was, for this season, his best. He
had Drake as nervous as an alligator near a purse factory when
he injured his ankle Dec. 30. He never played another game.
To compound Haskins' other worries, he rushed to his mother's
bedside early Monday in Enid, Okla. Mrs. Haskins had undergone sur-
gery and the Miner tutor may not return for the Sun Devil game.
Granting his mother improves, Haskins will be in Chicago.
Haskins Turns Hobo
The big, likeable and highly successful Haskins has had a busy
schedule recently. He has traveled more than a hobo with bad breath
and arrived from a tour at 5 a.m. Saturday.
At 12:30 p.m. he was directing his team to its 12th success of
the season, a 72-38 bombing of highly regarded Weber State. The
win ran Haskins' record with the Miners to a gaudy 120-28. At 4:30
a.m. Sunday he was on his way to Enid.
Against the Wildcats on a regionally televised game, the
Miners were as ready as a nervous missile launcher and tougher
than a week old doughnut.
The Wildcats found it harder to score on the Miners as it is to
mash potatoes with a jack-hammer. Weber .State managed only 13
from the floor-eight in the last half.
The Miners controlled the boards, grabbing 53 to 35 for ,the
'Cats. Weber State ranked third nationally on the boards before the
game while the Miners were sixth.
