Frosh
By MARK HALPERT
Wolverine trackmen showed a
well-balanced attack in last week's
Western Michigan R4elays. Mich-
Igan's strength in the shotput, dis-
tance relays, and high jump
sprints is being supplemented by
some fine performances by fresh-
men hopefuls in the broad jump,
pole-vault and sprints.,
Michigan shot-putters managed
to win, place and show in last
week's meet. Led by Jack Harvey's
put of 55'3", the Wolverines easily

Trackmen

won this event. Steve Leutchman
and Bob Thomas finished second
and third respectively.
George Hoey missed second by
a nose and third by a hair, and
had to settle for a fourth place
fiiish in the 60 yard dash. Hoey
pulled a hamstring muscle in the
finals which contributed to his
fourth place finish. He will have
to miss this weekend's Michigan
State Relays, but Coach Don Can-
ham expects him to be ready for

next week's dual meet with Notre
Dame. In Canham's words, "Hoey
is as good as any one around."
Final Finish
All three Michigan sprinters
made the finals. They were among
only eight of the original 48 con-
testants who made it that far.
Gary Knickerbocker's high-
jumping style shows that this
event is more than just a simple
run and jump. Gary works himself
into a deep trance before every
jump. This method may not be
orthodox, but Gary did win the
high-jump in last week's meet.
I Knickerbocker's jump of 6'93"
was a personal high for him, and
was only a quarter of an inch off
the Michigan record. "I felt real
good and thought I could go even
higher," was Knickerbocker's com-
ment after the best jump of his
life. "Gary has a lot of potential,"
remarked assistant coach Dave
Martin. "His failure to clear 6'11"
did not stop the crowd from giv-
ing him a well-deserved ovation."
"If conditions are right I think
Knickerbocker can go over seven
feet,", Coach Canham added.
Fresh Faces
Frosh pole-vaulter Ron Shortt,
broad-jumper Ira Russell and
sprinter Solomon -Espie lead the=
promising Michigan freshmen.

Ialane
Solomon (The Flash) Espie fin-
ished sixth in the 60 yard dash
but is expected to better it in the
future.
Russell had to settle for a
fourth place finish when his jump
of 23'7" was disallowed because
he had fouled. Coach Canham pre-
dicts that "Ira will go over 24'
soon and is capable of even doing
better."
Canham is looking forward to
next season when these three.
frosh stars will be eligible for Big
Ten competition.
Changes Pacej
Two-miler Steve Bishop ran in
the one mile event for a change
of pace. His time of 4:14.4 was
good for a third place finish and
was only four-tenths of a second
behind the winner. After running
his first mile event since high#
school, Bishop said that he felt
"real good" and he hopes to "run i

cM

in several more miles in the
future."
Michigan State's track team
also turned in a good showing in
last week's relays.
Gene Washington, who doubles
as an All-America end in football,
tied the meet record in the first
heat of the 60 yard high hurdles,
cut one-tenth off the record in
the semi-finals, and his winning
time of 07:1 in the finals clipped
another tenth of a second off the
meet record.
Lamar Miller, of Western Mich-
igan University, upset Washington
in the finals of the 60 yard low
hurdles, but Washington is still
considered to be the one to beat
in Big Ten competition.
Two-miler Jack Frost, State's
frosh sensation, easily won the
two mile by 15 seconds with a
clocking of 8:51.2.
MSU's mile relay team, of Bob

ttack
Steele, Don Crawford, Daz Camp-
bell and John Spain turned in an
excellent time of 3:15.8. The same
combination also won the sprint
medley with a time of 3:25.2.
Judging from their performance
it looks like State will be a tough
competitor in the Big Ten finals,
which will be held in Madison,
Wis., on March 3 and 4.
Coach Canham was pleased with
the results, and commented that
"the performances were real good
all the way down the line." Can-
ham is satisfied in general, and
tthinks the team will have a good
chance in the Big Ten champion-
ships.

NBA ROUNDUP:
Pistons Trample Bulls, 98-90

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-Eddie Miles came
off the bench last night to lead
the Detroit Pistons to 98-90 tri-
umph over Chicago and bury the
Bulls deeper in the National Bas-
ketball Association Western Divi-
sion cellar.
Detroit, leading by as many as,
14 points in the third quarter, had
their advantage evaporate on the
strength of a fourth-quarter surge
by McCoy McLemore.
McLemore, who had 13 points in
the final peirod, gave the Bulls,
and 84-83 edge before Dave Bing
put the Pistons back in front.
After Jerry Sloan gave the Bulls
an 86-85 advantage, Miles took
charge. He scored nine straight
points, giving the Pistons a 94-
88 advantage with 1:44 left.
Miles and Bing led the Pistons
with 21 points each while McLe-
more led Chicago with 23 followed'
by Sloan's 21.
76ers Nip Warriors
PITTSBURG-Wally Jones and
Bill Cunningham scored key goals
in the closing minute of play last
night that gave the Philadelphia
76ers a 126-123 National Basket-
ball Associatioin victory over the
San Francisco Warriors.,
With about a minute left in the'
game, Jones scored a field goal
that shot the 76ers into a 124-123
lead. Then, with only 42 seconds
remainig, Cunningham took a pass
from Hal Grier and dropped in a
layup that iced the game for
Philadelphia.
The game was close all the way,
and the leadh changed several
times. The Warriors were ahead
31-28 after the first period, and
Philadelphia led 76-64 at halftime.
But by the time the third quarter
ended, the Warriors were ahead
again 94-92.
Rick Barry scored 41 points for
San Francisco and led al scorers.
High point man for the 76ers was
Cunningham with 34.
Celtics Top Royals
CLEVELAND-Bill' Russell and
Bailey Howell supplied the spark
that ignited a fourth-quarter scor-
ing surge as the Boston Celtics
defeated the Cincinnati Royals
138-123 last night for their 13th
victory in their last 14 games.
Boston led from the second
quarter to the final gun, but it
was the fourth-quarter spurt that

put the game on ice. The Celtics
held a 97-89 margin going into-the
final period and raced to a 20-
point lead, 115-95, in a four-min-
ute span.
Altogether they tallied 41 points
in the fourth quarter as' they
notched their seventh straight win
over Cincinnati
Howell finished with 28 points
to lead the Celtics, and player
Coach Russell had 24 points and
24 rebounds. Sam Jones and Lar-
ry Siegfried contributed 23 apiece
to the Boston attack.
Oscar Robertson, who wore a
face mask to protect a stitched-up
lip: tallied 35 points for the Roy-
als.
The crowd of 10,444 was the
largest to see an NBA game in
Cleveland Arena this season.
Lakers Whip Knicks
NEW YORK--Elgin Baylor and
JerryWWest sparked a 'fourth-
quarter rally that carried the Los

Angeles Lakers to a 122-177 Na-
tional Basketball Association vic-
tory over the New York Knick-
erbockers last night.
A slim crowd of 2,636, result of
a blizzard that blanked New York
yesterday, saw Baylor pour in 14
of his game-high 34 points in the
final period and West score 12 of
his 27. The Lakers wiped out a
nine-point deficit and beat the
Knicks for only the second time
in seven meetings this season.
With 2:03 remaining Darrell Im-
hoff clicked for a three-point play,
pushing Los Angeles ahead 114-
113. Cazzie Russell countered for
the Knicks but West's last two-
pointer gave the Lakers the lead
again for good with 1:40 left.
Two free' throws and a jump-
shot by Baylor and two more free
throws by Gail Goodrich sewed It
up for the visitors.

BOXING'S "LOUISVILLE LIP," Cassius Clay gets ready to throw
a right to challenger Ernie Terrell during the first round of their
heavyweight fight Monday night. Clay's victory, by unaminous
decision, made him the undisputed champion of the world.
