Track Season Opens

Michigan's cage squad, winless
in three Big Ten contests, will
tackle three teams in six days
upon resumption of play at Yost
Fieldhouse Feb. 2 after a two-
week exam layoff.- t
The Wolverines, going into the
semester break with a rather dis-
mal 3-9 season record, will get a
relief from conference wars on
the second when they play host'
to lightly regarded Western On-
tario, but will be right back in the
middle of things two days later
when the powerful Buckeyes of
Ohio State come to town for a
4:30 game at Yost Fieldhouse.
Go to Purdue
A trip to Lafayette for a game
with the Terry Dischinger-led
Purdue Boilermakers on the sixth
will round out the sudden flurry
of activity for the last place Wol-
"Although every team in our
position should take every game
as it comes with a view to win-
ning, the boys will undoubtedly
use the Western Ontario game as
a tune-up match for Ohio State
more than anything else," Wolver-
ine Coach Dave Strack commented
in his remarks on the three con-
tests. "It will also serve to- take
the kinks out after finals," he
The mighty Buckeyes of Ohio
State have been ranked first in the
Associated Press' weekly poll since
the season began and for the last
five weeks have received unani-
mous acclaim by the AP board of
sportscasters and sportswriters as
the nation's top college basketball
"They are definitely the best
college team I've -ever seen," said1
Strack of the Bucks. "They have1
no true weakness."
Strack rates the Buck 'es better
than the San Francisco Dons of
the Bill Russel-K. C. Jones era
which won two straight NCAA
championships. "A team like Ohio
State comes along only about once
in every 20 years," he exclaimed.
6hio State, with an amazing
balance between scoring and de-
fense, is leading the Big Ten in'
practically every offensive and dew
fensive department. Only in re-
bounds, where they trail Indiana,'
do the Buckeyes fail to pace the
Their 86.9 team scoring average
is one of the best in the country.

Michigan's defending Big Tenl
indoor track champions will kick
the lid off the 1961 season withc
participation in three meets dur-
ing the semester break.
The Wolverines will test Big
Ten competition for the first time
on Feb. 4 when they meet teamsl
from all over the Midwest in the
Michigan State Relays at East4
On Feb. 11, Coach Don Canham<
will split his squad and have teams
competing in meets 2,500 miles
apart. Canham will send his one
and two-mile relay teams to com-1
pete in the Los Angeles Times 1
Invitational. The meet will take
place in the new sports arena
in the City of the Angels.1
Double Win Cast
Last year the Wolverine relay
teams won both events, in the
meet's first year of existence.
At Yost Fieldhouse on the same
day the rest of the squad will be
competing in the Michigan AAU
Relays. This meet will also feature
teams from all over the Midwest.
Notably missing from the MSU
Relays will be two Wolverine stars
who are defending Big Ten cham-
pions in their events.
Sprinter Tom Robinson, last
year's winner of the 60 and 200-
yd. dashes indoors, and 100 and,
220-yd .sprints outdoors, has not
yet returned to school af ter a post
Olympic tour of Europe. Robin-
son; who hails from Nassau, Ba-
hamas, was a member of the Ba-
haman Olympic team.
Shotputter Ray Locke, defending
outdoor champion, will also not
become eligible until next semes-
At Los Angeles, Canham expects
his toughest competition to come
from Southern California and
Oregon. Oregon's team will feature
U.S. mile king Dyrol Burleson,
only a junior this year.
"After these three meets I'll be
able to tell more about this 1961
squad," remarked Canham. "I'm
going to take about 35 boys up
to State and enter them all."
What Canham is pointing for,
of course, is a third consecutive
Big Ten indoor title, which will
be decided at Illinois on March
2 - 3.
