By HOWARD KOHN
You say that you get the hee-
bie-jeebies everytime someone
mentions deadline and that you see
footnotes in your alphabet soup?
You say that you haven't seen
daylight for seven days and seven
nights and that you wouldn't leave
your typewriter unless Moses came
down and smashed the Command-
ments on top of your seven-day
overdue paper?
You say that you haven't seen
The Daily since all the radicals
marched over and seized control
of the administration (or was it
just the building) and that you
didn't know basketball season was
even here?
You say that you have seen The
Daily and you still don't think
the season is here-at least not for
Michigan?.
Flashy Falcons
After upsetting fifth-ranked
Houston Monday night in Yost
Fieldhouse, the Wolverines trip-
ped down to Bowling Green and
fell flat 90-83 Wednesday night
for their third loss in four starts.
Dave. Strack's cagets haven't
exactly been the hottest craze
since hoola-hoops.
But after three years among
the .nation's leaders Strack was
ready for the splintery task of
rebuilding. It was all right with
his strategy to play high-ranked
teams in the first three games.
Vicious Circle
After the two losses in rebel
country, he said only, "It's pain-
ful but we're learning."
After the win over Houston, he
said simply, "This is really sweet;

it's great. But we still need to
learn."
After the second-half collapse
at BGU, he reiterated, "We're
back to learning the painful way.
"It's not that we're not improv-
ing. In the last two games, we've
made about the same number of
mistakes as the team we played.
But we still have our weaknesses,
still need the consistency.
"When we get behind in a game
or things start going bad, we
don't play as a team. Everyone
tries to take the burden of get-
ting us back ahead on himself.
That's an admirable attitude, but
it doesn't win ball games.
"We have to have more team-
work when the pressure is on,"

he stresses.
Davidson-Saturday

Michigan's next chance will be
against Davidson in Yost starting
1:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Da-
vidson, unbeaten in three starts,
received votes but didn't finish in
the Associated Press' Top Ten this
week.
"All I've heard about them is
that they're a heck of a good ball
club," said Strack yesterday after-
noon. Strack gave his, cagers the
day off, after playing four games
in seven days, but will stage an
extensive practice today in prep-
aration for the Wildcats.
Davidson Coach Lefty Driesell
exchanged last year's All-Ameri-
ca Dick Synder for an $1800 video-
tape machine (made in Japan)-
which is the coaches's answer to
the instant replay camera -- plus
a junior pair, of backboard trou-
ble-shooters.

Driesell's video-tape setup, com-
plete with camera and eight-inch
TV set, "cuts out the expense of
buying a lot of movie film.
"We study the films, show them
to the boys and erase the tape,"
he explains. "We especially use
the replays at halftime during the
games, and if we ever get in a
specially tight situation we could
call time out and show the guys
the tape."
So far, with 6'9" Rod Knowles
and 6'10" Tom Youngdale up front:
hounding the boards, Driesell has
little excuse to call timeouts.
Knowles, coming off a sopho-
more year in which he averaged
19 ppg, has been especially im-
pressive again this year in both
shooting and blocking shots.
Still Behind
Michigan, outbounded by a su-
per-unbelievable 80-49 margin
Duke Stats

against Houston, narrowed the gap
but still trailed BGU in rebounds
Wednesday.
With Knowles and Youngdale
on patrol ,the Wolverines may be
hardpressed to spy a stray re-
bound. "We haven't gotten into
the habit of going back to cover
the boards on a shot as much as
we should," explains Strack.
Center Craig Dill picked off a
season high of 19 against the Fal-
cons, but forwards Bob Sullivan

ever defense we do use, we're go-
ing to play it hard," emphasized
Strack.
Win a Few, Lose a Few
Strack also pointed out that
Michigan's 37 per cent shooting
average from the floor in Bowling
Green was its worst in the short
steason. "Stewart, for instance, way
ta. rg those same 15-foot jump-
ers from the corner that worked
so well against Houston-and was
missin .. . and you can't afford
to miss i .ts like that." h" :,aid.

"Stewart is probably more guil-
