Through Eight Opponents

By BILL BULLARD
and CHARLIE TOWLE
Michigan's basketball team has
won seven of the eight games-
including the first two in Big Ten;
play - since classes ended last
December a little less than a
month ago.
In that short span of time the
Wolverines have posted victories
over Western Michigan, Duke, De-
troit, Northwestern and Purdue.
Out at the Los Angeles Classic,
only a defeat at the hands of
UCLA, currently rated number one
in the nation, marred tourney vic-
tories over NYU and Pittsburgh.

Coach Dave Strack said that
the team accomplished the pur-
pose of the non-league games-
preparing the team for the rug-
ged conference schedule. "We
learned some tough lessons and
we're a better team for it now,"
he said.
Strack is pleased with the re-
sults of conference action so far.
Although the Wolverines defeated
Purdue last Saturday by only
seven points Strack was not dis-
appointed. "Purdue is a spirited
team. They battled us all the
way," Strack said.
Strack said that Michigan re-

bounded well, defensed adequate-
ly, and kept the error figure down
but that the team missed too
many short shots.
Strack pointed out that oppon-
ents of the last month have been
"up" for their games against
Michigan and that the trend
should continue. "Now that we
have a pretty good basketball
team, everyone is pointing at us
and trying to knock us off," he
added.
Western Michigan
Western Michigan came to Yost
Field House billed as Michigan's

first serious test, but the Wolver-
ines had an easy time of it against
the Broncos with an 104-81 win.
Michigan trailed only briefly at
the start of the game but from
then on systymatically destroyed
Western's hopes of upsetting the
highly rated Wolverines.
Bill Buntin and Cazzie Russell
tied for high point honors in the
game with 32 points apiece. High
man for the Broncos was forward
Bill Street, since suspended, with
22 points. He was closely follow-
ed by Manny Newsome and Ajac
Triplett with 20 points apiece.
The hero of the game was

neither Buntin or Russell, how-
ever, but Michigan's captain, Bob
Cantrell, who delights in guarding
big name guns. This time Can-
trell held the sharp-shooting New-
some, who had entered the game
with a 32-point average, to only
eight points before leaving the
game midway through the second
half. Cantrell followed Newsome
so closely that he seemed to be
trying to hypnotise the Western
guard with his intent stare.
Michigan shot a torrid 54.7 per
cent in a game which was pretty
close to the ideal for Michigan
fans. Buntin led all rebounders
with 12.
Duke
Duke came to Yost Field House
billed as Michigan's first REAL
serious test, but dropped a rela-
tively easy game to the Wolver-
ines, 83-67.
Duke tried to rattle the young
Michigan team by throwing a
tough zone defense and playing
deliberate, one-shot basketball, but
to no avail.
Michigan got the first basket of
the game on a tip by Buntin and
never trailed throughout the en-
tire contest. At the end of the
first half the Michigan quintet
had an eight-point bulge, 38-30.
By 12:00 of the second half the
margin was up to 20 points and
from there on in the two teams
traded baskets at a practically
even rate.
The game was important for
another reason other than it was
a gratifying win over what was
once this year the number-two
ranked team in the nation. In it
Michigan demonstrated a facet of
its game which would be impor-
tant in key games. Namely the
ability of the other men on the
team besides Russell and Buntin
to come in with good scoring ef-
forts. In the Duke game Russell
was high man with 21 points but
Buntin, playing against the tight
zone, fell off to 14 points.
The men who came in with the
big baskets were Cantrell and
Larry Tregoning. Their combined
outside shooting cut the heart out
of the Duke zone. Cantrell finish-
ed the game with 11. points and
Tregoning chipped in with 17, de-
spite fouling out with 15:00 to go
after doing an outstanding job on
Duke's outstanding forward, Jeff
Mullins.
Detroit
Michigan set a school scoring
record in a New Year's Eve romp
over Detroit as it scored 117 points
and won by exactly 30 points.
The Wolverines only led by nine
points with four minutes left in
the first half. Then Michigan
popped in 10 straight points to
boost the lead to 53-34. The 59-38
halftime lead was extended in the
second half to as much as 39
points before the final 117-87
score was reached.
Buntin tipped in a shot to give
the Wolverines 101 points with
7:30 left in the ame. Center Doug
Greenwold's jump shot with two
minutes left in the game estab-
lished a new school scoring mark.
'The Michian varsity of two sea-
sons ago set the old record of 110
points against Indiana.
Russell scored 36 points for the
Michigan individual game high of
the season. Buntin had 29 points
and Jim Myers had 15. Senior
forward Dick Dzik and sophomore
center Dorie Murrey shared high
point honors for the Titans with
25 points each. Sophomore guard
Lou Hyatt scored 16 points.
Michigan's field goal percentage
of 47 per cent overshadowed De-
troit's 40.7 per cent. The Wolver-
ines outrebounded their opponents,
65-48. Buntin was high for Mich-
igan with 21 and Dzik grabbed
18 for Detroit.

The Wolverines opened their Big
Ten season on Jan. 4 at Yost
Field House with a 85-73 victory
over a hustling Northwestern
squad.
Behind 45-33 at the half, the
Wildcats held the Wolverines even
in scoring during the second half.
Senior forward Rick Lopossa scor-
ed seven straight points as North-
western surged to within four
points of Michiagn with 13 min-
utes left in the game.
Michigan seemed in control of
the situation, however and jumped
from a 61-56 lead to a 69-56 lead
around the mid-point in the per-
iod. From then on in the Wol-
verine margin never went below
10 points.
Michigan gradually built up its
lead throughout the first half.
The Wolverines had a 14-point
lead, their highest of the period,
before senior forward Dennis Han-
son hit on a jump shot with three
seconds left in the half. Hanson's
basket made the halftime score
45-33.
Northwestern's shooting per-
centage in the second half im-
proved considerably while Michi-
gan's average fell off sharply. The
Wildcats shot 45 per cent for the
whole game and the Wolverines
hit on 45.7 per cent of their shots.
Michigan, led by Buntin with
13 rebounds, picked off 46 re-
bounds to Northwestern's 37. Rus-
sell with 23 points, Buntin with
22, Tregoning with 18, and Can-
trell with 10 points were in double
figures for the Wolverines. Lo-
possa had 29 points and Rich
Falk scored 17 for the Wildcats.

JUST LIKE THE WARMUP-Sophomore forward Jim Meyers
stuffs down two of the 15 points he scored as a substitute in
Michigan's record-setting 117-87 victory over Detroit. The team
gets plenty of practice on the dunk shot in the pre-game drills.

-Daily--Kamalakar Rao
NOT SO FAST-Bill Buntin, Michigan's 6'7" junior center,
was too late to stop this layup by Northwestern's Jimmy Pitts.
But Buntin, as he does in nearly every game, outscored his
rival center. This time it was Buntin 22, Pitts 7.
