Sophomore Petroff To Start
As Wolverines Open Season
By JOHN SCOCHIN ld k,.... 1 a ...t.. e

OSU Upends Scrappy Ohio, 85-64;
Bradley Edges Underdog Minnesota

With a new coach, a new lineup
and a new offense, the Michigan
basketball quintet, far from the
snowy confines of Ann Arbor,
opens the 1960-61 basketball sea-
son against Vanderbilt in Nash-
ville tonight.4
According to Coach Dave Strack,
the team is physically ready to go,
but only competition can tell how
it. will perform during the season.
Tidwell Leads Squads
Headlining the Wolverine squad,
at guard, will be 6'3" senior John
Tidwell, who scored 540 points
last season for a 21.6 game aver-
age to set a Michigan scoring
record. At the other guard slot
will be veteran John Hall, a 6-foot
junior. Either 6'6" Rich Donley or
6'5" Bob Brown, a senior football
lineman, will be at center.
In the forecourt, 6'3" junior
Scott Maentz, also a football end,
along with newcomer Don Petroff,
a 6'4" sophomore who starred at
East Detroit High School, will
handle the starting chores.
Picked by "Dell Magazine" as
one of the top contenders for the
Southeastern Conference title,
Vanderbilt has three of its starters
returning, plus a tall talented crop
of sophomores to aid them.
The club's leading scorer, 6'1",
Bill Johnson, a junior averaging
15.5 -points per game last year,
forms a capable trio with 67" cen-
ter Bill Johnson and 5'10' Bobby
Bland, who average 12.5 and 10.1
points respectively. Veterans Larry
Blank, 6'6", and Ray Clark, 6'3",
round out the starting five.
Commodore Coach Bob Polk will
also rely on 6'7" Ron Griffiths and
6'6" Bob Scott for reserve strength.
Speedy sophomores John Russell
and Lou Klein are also slated to
help Vanderbilt, which seeks to
improve on last season's 14 win
S loss record.
Face Tennessee Tomorrow
Tomorrow night the Wolverines
will take on tough Tennessee,
which lost only one letterman
from last season and hopes to be
strengthened considerably by this
year's sophomores, which are its
best in many years,
The Volunteers are not short of
height, with 6'9" Orb Bowling,
6'9" Bobby Frank, 6'7" Fred Col-
lins and 6'6" Roy Wright available
for duty. Seniors Glen Campbell
and Bobby Carter, both six footers,
provide shooting and speed, along
with 6-foot Tom Wilson and 6'2"
Steve Van Antwerp. The "Vols"
tied for sixth in the SFC last year.
'M' Has Good Depth
Michigan's Coach Dave Strack,
former Idaho U. basketball men-
tor who succeeded Bill Perigo,
stated "we have good reserve
strength, but our defense could be
improved. Our starting five has
plenty of "beef" under the back-

ooaras, which couia ma e us a
strong rebounding team,. even
though we lack a "big" man. The
players have worked very hard
and the future is up to them. If
our new controlled offense works
effectively we should enjoy some
happy Saturday afternoons."
The graduation of "Most Valu-
able Player" Lovell Farris, a 6'3"
center who was the team's leading
rebounder last year despite his
size and who averaged 13.3 points
per game together with the de-
parture of captain Jerry Miller,
who scored 15 a game, hurt the
Wolverines. Despite this the 1960
team should improve on last year's
four win-20 loss record.
All in all, both hope and ap-
prehension share the spotlight as
Michigan opens the basketball sea-
