Cager
By GRETCHEN TWIETMEYER
To a sonambulent spectator
wedged in a segment of resilient
gray board atathe Bowling Green
game last year, it was intensely
unpatriotic to echo the lustiest
croakers. Because Falcon support-
ers descended in clumps on Yost
Field, House, their din amassed in
a cheering section that could have
been mistaken for half the enroll-

ment at the Ohio state-supported
school.
Traditionally, they're even loud-
er in the diminuitive Falcon field
# house, the Bowling Greeners
having a fanatical exuberance for
basketball.
But the game which will begin
tonight at 8:00, though it will not
duplicate the Russell-Clawson 108-
70 dessication of last year, should
fortify Michigan's claim for con-
tention in the Big Ten race..
Michigan's amazing rout of
Houston Monday night trans-
formed most any Falcon specula-
tion of victory to pure bluff, for
the Wolverines will have advant-
ages unbequeathed by the Cagey
Cougars.
The Falcons rely on a fast-break
team that. head coach Dave Strack
tags "a tight man-to-man and
running team. Whether they'll use
the one-to-one defense on us,
though," he added, "I don't know."
Go-Go
This Will be countered with
Michigan's increased momentum,
provided by Dennis Bankey, Den-
nis Stewart and, of course, Ken
Maxey. Maxey, still slated sixth
on Strack's pyramid, prompts the
coach's evaluation; "We can play'
him whenever we need him. And
you know we have to be fast be-
cause when both he and Dennis
Bankey are in it's a pretty shrimpy
looking team."
No one turns their nose up at
the Mid-American Conference
favorites, however. A strengthened
starting five comes from three re-
turning starters-Walt Piatkowski,
Al Dixon, Rich Hendrix (all soph-

Michigan's zone defense put the
whammy on Bowling Green last
year, and the Wolverines are
hoping that it works again. If not,
they'll have to find another potion
to bewitch their opponents.
Strack cautioned that in spite
of Maize and Blue magic, Bowling
Green could give the squad alot of
trouble, although it was apparent
that the aura of Monday's rain-
bow pervaded his office. Even the
walls seemed to be smiling.

ELVIN HAYES (45) is doing what comes naturally. The 6'8"
Houston star blocks one of Craig Dill's shots in Monday night's

omores last year)-and two junior
college imports.
*Pitatkowski, enthusiastically de-
scribed by freshman basketball
coach Dick Honig as "their best
player and an all-around shooter,
good at all shots," was also suffi-
ciently adulated by both Strack
and Sports Illustrated. Last year
the clean-cut Mid-American scor-
ing champ (with a 19 point aver-
age) squeezed 24 out of the Michi-
gan defense. Honig, while praising
him, pointed out that his Michigan
mirror image, Stewart, might not
score as many points but is a bet-
ter all-around player.
His feeder, center Al Dixon, re-
portedly appears as though he
can't see the ball, even with horn
rims. Strack remembers him as a
"great rebounder," probably for

the 11 he snatched from Michigan.
Honig got the impression that even
thick lenses couldn't help him in
his miserable performance in the
Falcon's last game with Witten-
berg, where he was extremely cold.
Piatkowski, along with Hendrix
and Al Hairton, a transfer from
Port Huron Junior College, covet
95 per cent of the shooting and
95 per cent of the scoring. All
three are good ball handlers and
fairiy speedy.
Scoring at Bowling Green is uni-
fied only in its disorganization.
Their "technique" is approaching
the basket and shooting, with no
formal inspiration. "It's different
from Houston," mused Strack.
"There we just kept them outside
where they couldn't hit. Bowling
Green attempts the shots the
