This evolution that has taken George Mans, Wolverine offen-

rushing play. For example, Big Ten the coming about of the two-pla-

toon system and the consequent
increase in specialization on the
part of each individual player.
Whereas in the past players had+
to concentrate on virtually alll
aspects of the game, modern play-
ers specialize in their particularI
forte and place less emphasis on
other facets of the game.1

th

Time

In particular, the offensive ends
of today spend more time prac-
ticing pass catching and less time
on things such as defensive ma-
nuevers than their predecesors.
And since pass plays are generally
more intricate than rushing plays
and require precision timing, this,
trend of specialization has been of
much greater benefit to the air
game than that of the ground.
Split Ends Help
Another factor mentioned by
Coach Mans for more flying pig-,
skins is the increased use of the
split end. A good end can usually
beat his opponent if only one man
covers him, and in fact can often
give two defenders problems. Thus1
an end like Jack Clancy, who
needs at least two men to cover
him and is spread off to a side
of the field, gives his team an ad-
vantage of ten players against
nine in the middle of the field.
This year's crop of Big Ten ends
will probably be the best in con-
ference history. If the trend to-
wards more passing continues to

DETROIT (R) - The scoring of
veterans Zelmo Beaty and Len
Wilkens and rookie Lou Hudson
sparked the St. Louis Hawks to a
113-105 National Basketball Asso-
ciation victory over the Detroit
Pistons last night.
Beaty fired in 31 points and
grabbed 20 rebounds. Wilkens and
Hudson, the former star at Minne-
sota, each contributed 24'points.
St. Louis led all the way except
for a brief stretch in the second
period when Detroit slipped ahead
36-32 on the shooting of player-
coach Dave DeBusschere and Ron
Reed.
The Hawks capitalized on Piston
miscues and fouls, with Beaty and
Hudson the chief marksmen, to
take a 58-50 halftime lead.
The nearest Detroit got after

that was within six points early in
the fourth period, but two baskets
by Hudson and one each by Bill
Bridges and Wilkens restored St.
Louis to a 10-point bulge.
DeBusschere led the Pistons with
32 points and 19 rebounds.

eclipsed by even better players in

that would be envied by any coach
