Tennessee Opener Marked
Biy Abnormnality, Potentiality
In Tennessee everything is done with a flair. The food in the
motels is as fancy and eye-catching as the orange-and-white uniforms
worn by the home-team Volunteers.
Michigan's starting team was disposed of briefly by the home-
team announcer, then the lights were dimmed as Tennessee's starting
lineup ran through a 20-foot t-shaped edifice. The game was held
up five minutes while the structure was removed.
Two interesting calls by the officials were probably the high-
lights on the sloppy first half of the ball game. With only a min-
ute gone Dennis Bankey sank a lay-up and was fouled and
knocked down on the play. Trainer Jim Hunt looked him over,
but the referee made the diagnosis, deciding that Bankey had to
be removed from the game, or he would be charged with a time
out. So Coach Dave Strack, somewhat surprised, sent in Ken
Maxey, who made the free throw and came out ten seconds later.
Actually Strack could have afforded a time out because ten min-
utes later when Jim Pitts motioned for time to the officials, they
didn't seem to see him. Nontheless, the players walked over to the
side of the court and huddled. Each referee thought the other had
seen the time out call, but since neither had, it could not be charged
as a time out to the Wolverines.
The game showed clearly that Strack has a problem or two to
worry about, like just who his starters are. Neither center Craig Dill
nor forwards Dennis Stewart and Bob Sullivan showed as much as
Strack would have liked to see, and Clarence Adams, Dave McClellan,
and Maxey all had opportunities. If Strack decides that Maxey is
worthy of a starting spot, then guard Jim Pitts might get Sullivan's
forward position. Pitts was easily the smoothest Michigan man on
the court, prompting several local observers to comment on his sure
quick-handedness. Maxey was the crowd-pleaser, though, scurrying
around the court like a mouse on pep pills. And the Yost fans should
find him a favorite.
Bankey hit on two layups and a free throw in the first five
minutes of play, and didn't shoot again all night. In the freshman
game last week he made five-of-five field goal attempts, which
means he hasn't missed a shot all season.
Though the loss was none-too-impressive, there was a feeling
on the team that a potential to do better was there. During the first
half it seemed at several points that Michigan was, about to break the
game open, but each time a careless mistake erased the momentum.
Enough for basketball and on to more pressing issues of the
time. At the University of Tennessee there has erupted a crisis with
the administration similar to the one at Michigan. The main issues
are a bit less complex, however.
In the UT Daily Beacon the lead editorial Thursday protested
the fact that a gate in front of a driveway, used by students to walk
to classes, had been suddenly locked for no apparent reason by the
administration. A petition had been circulated and turned in to the
Dean of Students.
Said the Beacon, "The whole problem centers around an apparent
lack of communication . . . Colonel Whitehead, Director of Safety
and Security, said the gates remained locked because he thought
they had already been unlocked.
