Michigan Faces Tough Test
In Star-Studded MSU Relays

3II +





FN-. - is f./i. ,q ! t../R. \ ./ 'q ./1R.

Jim Ryun may be the drawing1
point for the Michigan State re-l
lays but Michigan's two-mile relay
team will be doing the fast step-
This being early in the season
and with little top-flight competi-
tion, it is unlikely that Ryun, the
world record holder in both the
mile (3:51.3) and half mile (1:-
44.9), will be setting any records.
Michigan's assistant track coach
Dave Martin doubts that he will
even break 4:02 in the mile.
The two-mile relay team, on the
other hand, which competed in
New York last night against the
best competition in the country,
hurried back to join the rest of the
35-man contingent in East Lan-
sing tonight.
In an effort to win the three
medley relays head coach Don
Canham has decided to spread
Alex McDonald, John Reynolds,
Ron Kutchinsci, and Tom Kear-
ney over the three events. Only;
Reynolds and McDonald will race
in their specialty, but the team's
time will not suffer much with Ken
Coffin and Taimo Leps entered.
The Wolverine unit has been
jokingly referred to by their team-
mates as the commonwealth
squad, since McDonald is from
Jamaica, while the other threea
are Canadians.
Ryun will run the anchor leg for
the Kansas two-fnile relay and
this, according to Martin, "should
be the most interesting race of
the evening if he finds himself be-

relay team. Kansas State with
Conrad Nightengale, a four-min-
ute miler, and Michigan State,
which did 10:03 last week, promise
tough competition.
In the mile relay it will be Mi-
chigan and Michigan State fight-
ing it out with the latter having
the best time so far this winter.
Martin feels winning two relays
will mean a very successful eve-
nling. "Any time you win two re-
lays with that tough competition,
you can be proud."
High Jump
Michigan's fine high jumper,
Gary Knickerbocker, who cleared
6' 9%" last week, will get the op-
portunity to go against one of
the country's finest in Steve Hern-
don of Missouri who went 7' 1 "
last year.
Ryun is certainly no one-man
show for Kansas as the Jayhawk-
ers' 91-29 dual meet victory over
a good Southern Illinois squad
demonstrates. Gary Ard goes 24'
10" in the long jump, Bob Stein-
hoff is a 16' pole vaulter and
George Byers an excellent hurdler.
The hurdles promise excitement,
with Byers, who tied the Ameri-
can indoor record for the 60-yard
low hurdles at 0:06.7 at Southern
Illinois, and defending Big Ten
champ Gene Washington, who has
done 0:06.8, facing each other.

special To The Daily
NEW YORK - The Michigan
two-mile relay team took a liking
to the board track at Madison
Square Garden last night as they!
clicked off a sizzling 7:29.8 effort'
to easily win the featured race at
the USTFF Invitational.
Billed as a head-to-head con-
frontation between the Wolverines,
Fordham, and Villanova, the top
three relay units in the country,
the race ended in a lop-sided vic-
tory for the Michigan foursome of
Tom Kearney, John Reynolds,
Alex McDonald, and Ron Kutch-
Although the eastern units were
much more experienced on the 11-
lap board oval at the Garden, the

The Wolverines finished with a
15-yard victory margin over sec-
ond place Fordham, who was timed
in 8:32. Villanova placed third in
7:36.5; while Tennessee garnered
the fourth spot in 7:40.2.
Kearney ran the opening leg in
1:55 and the second runner, Rey-
nolds, turned in a 1:54.5 stint.
The Michgian speed kings, Mc-
Donald and Kutchinski, then
served up the wi nwith spectacular
performances. McDonald, a jun-
ior and the old man of the young
unit, was clocked in 1:51.3. He was
followed by Kutchinski who shift-
ed into high and crossed the tape
in one minute, 49 seconds.

Dick Barnett's two free throws
with three seconds remaining
boosted the New York Knicks to
a 122-121 National Basketball As-
sociation victory over the stubborn
Chicago Bulls last night.
Barnett, who topped all scorers
with 31 points, cooly cashed his
free throws after 'being fouled by
Chicago's Jerry Sloan. The Bulls
took time out and set up Sloan
for a last second shot, but the ball
hit the rim and bounced away.
Chicago appeared en route to
victory after Bob Boozer sank
two free throws with 39 seconds
left, , but Barnett then came
through for the Knicks.
Walt Bellamy scored 26 points
and Cazzie Russell 20 in the New
York attack. Chicago scorers were
topped by Jim Washington with

Cincinnati, led by Oscar Rob-
ertson's 28 points, put the National
Basketball Association game out
of reach by outscoring the Pistons
47-30 in the last quarter.
The Royals saw Detroit close
from a 60-46 halftime deficit to
within four points, 76-72, in the
third quarter. But they opened
up a 12-point margin, 86-74, at
the end of the quarter and then
went on their fourth period tear.
Jerry Lucas added 24 points and
Adrian Smith 23 for the Royals.
Dave Bing paced Detroit with 20.

76ers Over Lakers
berlain's 37 ponts led the Phila-
delphia 76ers to a 148-131 Na-

tory last night over the Los An-
geles Lakers.
Chamberlain, who has been
sacrificing points for playmaking
most of the season, collected 16
field goals on 21 attempts and
added five from the free throw
line as the 76ers scored their fifth
straight victory.

joying one of his top scoring nights
of the year, grabbed 24 rebounds

Northwestern, which hasn't won
a Big Ten basketball title since
1933, is a senior-dominated outfit
which boasts experience with a
capital E to offset its size and re-
bouding disadvantages. And as
Burns sees it, there is no substi-
tute for experience.
The All-America candidate, who
is currently hitting at a clip well
over 20 points per game, remem-
bers a game between the same two
teams when he was a sophomore
at which time the experience
showed up on the Wolverine roster.!
"There were about three and a'
half minutes left to go in the first
half and we were up by about
eight or ten points. They threw a
1-3-1 press (the traditional Michi-
gan half-court press) at us which
really brought out our inexperi-
ence. At halftime we were six
points behind."
This season, it is Michigan which
has the sophomore-studded lineup,
and the first meeting between the
teams a month ago resulted in a
93-73 runaway for the Wildcats.
But thetconference leaders are not
taking today's contest lightly.
"I expect to see a greatly im-
proved ball club,' remarked Glass

earlier in the week. "We were
lucky to catch them in the league
opener before they were really
ready. But they've played some
fine basketball since then."
Big Benches for Both
'Burns stated that "Michigan has
as much horsepower as any team
in the league. Their starters have
a lot of ability and they have a
strong bench."
Depth is one of the Wildcat as-
sets too, and Glass has been taking
full advantage of this fact. "We
have been using nine men in most
of our games. And they can all
shoot . .
Asked who was the best outside
shooter besides Burns, Glass
thought a moment and then rat-
tled off the names of the other
eight players one after another.
"I guess you could say the out-
side shot is one of our strong
points," he admitted. Maybe.
One deadeye whom Wolverine
fans remember is senior center

Ron Kozlicki. His 22 points did
more than a little damage in the
earlier meeting between the two
squads. Kozlicki is a converted
forward, and Glass feels that "we
are doing him an injustice by
playing him at center, but he is

doing a good job. He really be-
longs at the forward position with
his tremendous outside shot."
Center Move,
Glass indicated that he might
give sophomore Sterling Burke a
chance to play center in today's
game, and switch Kozlicki to for-
ward. Burke (6'62", 215 lbs.) is
a good jumper, and has been av-
eraging 15 minutes of playing time
in the Big Ten games.


Rebounding has hurt the Wild-
cats on occasion, especially in
their lone loss to Illinois. "We
have not been consistent under the
boards at all," moans Glass, "and
we give a height advantage to
every team we meet.'
Both Burns and Glass are con-
fident that Northwestern will be
in the thick of the title race right
down to the wire, but the senior
guard predicts that "the champion
will be determined 'on the road.'
The league is so well balanced
this year that everyone is having
trouble winning away from home."
rGlass is satisfied by his team's
showing so far, but says that "we
haven't played a 'complete' game
yet . . . we had a good second
half against Michigan and OSU
but we have failed to put in a top
performance for all 40 minutes in
any game this season."
Burns feels that the big factor
behind the Wildcat winning rec-
ord is the 'team's "consistency."
He points to an "excellent team
attitude" and the "winning spirit"
which characterizes the club.
"We put out a great team ef-
fort for every game," he asserts.
"The biggest difference between
this year's squad and last year's
is that we are really consistent-
game in, game out."

In addition to a starting lineup

"The length of the suspensions
was contingent upon their reac-
tions and their attitudes this week
have been fine," explained Strack.
"Actually, the morale on the
team is good. I'll admit that it
sounds funny to say that when you
kick a couple of guys off, but I
have no complaints."
Strack indicated that practices
