THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Beats Michigan

Cagers, 68-5

Tidwell, just warming to the cause,
hit on a driving layup to narrow
the count to 46-39. Butler took
advantage of a Tidwell foul then
scored one of their repeated easy
baskets to restore the margin to
10.
After that, it was a matter of
guesing what the final score would
be, as Williams, and his 5'9" run-
ning mate Dick Haslam effec-
tively held the ball, and the lead,
against Michigan's desperate full
court press.
11 Point Surge
An 11 point Butler surge early
in the first half had set the pat-
tern for the game, as Strack sub-
stituted vainly to try to find a
combination that would click. The
Bulldogs then sandwiched another
eight point burst around forward
Don Petroff's basket to take a
commanding 27-10 lead.
Mainly through the work of
Dick Donley and 6'7" sophomore
Tom Cole, the Wolverines narrow-
ed the gap down to the nine point
halftime spread. These two joined
Charlie Higgs in the "thin man
front line" as they replaced the
rugged starting trio of Bob Brown,
Scott Maentz, and Petroff.
Cole especially used his height
well against the shorter visitors'
scoring four points and picking up
four quick rebounds, while Don-
ley chipped in with eight valuable
points.
Old Rut

At this point, Michigan was still
very much in contention, but Tid-
well was cold. Fans hoped that he
would start to hit, and if the
balanced scoring continued, the
tide would turn.
But Petroff was the only other
Michigan player to crack the scor-
ing ice in the final 20 minutes
until Maentz connected with two
minutes to go.
Statistics Tell
Statistics told the story of the
game in a nutshell. Michigan took.
18 more shots, but Butler hit
49.1% from the floor to the home
squad's 35.2%, and converted 10
more times from the foul line.
Although Michigan grabbed four
more rebounds, Strack said that
" . . . we had to do better than
that against them. We didn't use
our height to advantage."
"Butler played a fine game," he
said. "They worked for the shots,
and made them. Maybe our de-
fense gave them the good shots,
but it's hard to say."
Hinkle, in his 40th year at But-
ler, echoed this when he stated,
"When Illinois overpowered us by
30 points, they hit, we didn't. To-
night, it was the reverse. The other
team usually has something to
do with our performance, and to-
night I think we were just a
little quicker."
He added that guard Larry
Ramey, who scored 19 points in the
85-63 victory a year ago, hadn't
been hitting and was given a
rest.
Cat and Mouse
"We just didn't have it," said
Strack. "Butler's a master at that
'cat and mouse' game. Williams
did a good job on Tidwell, but
he's been 'gunned for' in every
game. That's not the answer, but
we'll try to find out what is
against Drake tomorrow night."
Although Tidwell's lack in the
scoring department may not be
the answer, it was pointed out that
had he- approached his 38 point
total of the Pitt game, it might1
have been a different story.
"As Tidwell goes, so go the
Wolverines," was the cry last year,
and once again it is being heard,
but if the spark catches the team
on fire as happened Tuesday night,
that saying might be dispensed
with for the duration of the
season.

out second best as he and Butler's 5'9" guard, Dick Haslam, go

Wolverines outrebounded the Bulldogs 44-40, they still came out
second best in the score, 68-56. It was Michigan's third loss in
four starts this season.

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - The Big Ten yes-
terday studied the possible de-
emphasis of the commissioner's
office pertaining to its absolute
power o fenforcement and inves-
tigation under the recruiting code.
Faculty representatives a n d
athletic directors in the second
day of the annual conference busi-
ness meetings heard a report of a
10-man committee headed by V.
C. Freeman of Purdue. It involved
re-appraisal of the administrative
duties and procedures of enforce-
ment of the commissioner.
The current power of the com-
missioner to act as Judge and Jury
in the enforcement of the re-
cruiting policy is thought to be
imprecendented in intercollegiate
conference athletics.

lege football teams was increased
to 16 yesterday when the Big
Eight conference ordered Kansas
to forfeit its game to Missouri.
Missouri, which had lost its
only game by a 23-7 score to Kan-
sas, thus, finished the regular
season. with a 10-0 record and
joined New Mexico State and Yale

fect marks.
Kansas was required to forfeit
the game for using Bert Coan, an
ineligible player.
