for Gray was suspended from the
ve weekend's action for what Coach
id Renfrew called "an internal prob-
lem - primarily for disciplinary
ere reasons.",
lie Gray has been-the backbone of
he the Wolverine hockey team all sea-
nd son. He is presently holding op-
ponents to 2.3 goals per game, the
second lowest goals-against aver-
age in the conference.
When asked about Gray a few
3. weeks ago, Renfrew said, "He is a
3 great goalie, and he is the key to
3 the kind of game we play. If we
0 didn't have a goalie like Gray, we
15 could never take the chances we
s do on offense."
Bieber, according to Renfrew
played a "great game Saturday.
He made many key saves, and, in
general, turned in a real fine per-
formance."
Also out for the first State game
this weekend is wing Jack, Cole,
who was slapped with a one game
suspension for fighting in Satur-
day night's game with Tech.
| Renfrew explained, "We will
probably put Pierre Dechaine on

the ice for Cole." Michigan's first
line would then consist of Gary
Butler, the team's leading scorer,
Captain Gordie Wilkie, who re-
cently broke his own record for
assists in a season, and Dechaine,

who has only seen limited action
this season but has scored three
times in WCHA play.
Michigan is presently on top
of the conference, but the Blue
must sweep this weekend's home-
away series with Michigan State.
The shakeup in the Wolverine
line will undoubtedly greatly in-
fluence the outcome of the up-
coming Michigan State series.
Although Michigan won the two
games in February by scores of 2-0
and 7-2, Renfrew notes that "State
is always tough for us. Even
though they haven't done too well
this season, in this league any team
can beat any other on a given
night."
Michigan now has a season
mark of 19-3, as they picked up
their third loss Friday night at
Houghton 3-1. Said Renfrew, "We
played real well both nights. Both
teams showed some real good
hockey. They just beat us."
Saturday night was a different
story as the Wolverines came back
to win 4-3. Michigan won the
game in the last five minutes on
a goal by Butler. "Saturday night's
game was as fine a team effort
as we have had all season. Every-

VICTORY STRING ON LINE:
Keen's Matmen Face Tough Opponents

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
first of two articles analyzing the
upcoming Big Ten wrestling cham-
pionships to be held this aweek-
end at Madison. Today's article
looks at the challengers who will
be out to stop Michigan's bid for a
second straight title.)
By TOM ROWLAND
Wrestling coach Cliff Keen is a
man with a team that just rolled
unscathed through a tough con-
ference slate while chalking up its
21st straight dual meet victory,
but the Wolverine headmaster
isn't ready to claim any confer-
ence championship just yet.
"Right now we haven't won
a thing," said Keen yesterday as
his matmen worked out in prep-
aration for the Big Ten tourney
at Madison this weekend. "All
these meets have just been for
fun.".r
All the "fun" gave the Wolver--
Ines a 12-0 season mark with a
single loss to the New York Ath-
letic Club in an exhibition meet
early in the winter. The only Big
Ten team that really gave the
defending conference champs any
go for the win was at Evanston
in the Big Ten opener when the
Wolverines nipped Northwestern,
14.11.
Line UVp Spots
Keen's men will compete this
week for lineup spots for the
tourney team, which will start ac-
tion at Madison on Friday after-
noon, with final action Saturday.

Keen spots Northwestern as the
big team to beat. "They're not
really weak at any single weight,"
he comments, "especially since
Jerry Torrence has moved into the
137-pound spot-" Torrence was a
fourth place finisher last year at
130-pounds when Michigan's Dave
Dozeman beat him 8-4 in the con-
solation round.
This year Torrence rates high
among the conference 137-pound-
ers with only one loss in ten
matches.
At 123, Too
The Wildcats will also be strong
with Dave Kredier, second ranked
in the conference 123-pound rat-
ings with an 8-3 record, and Ron
Risner (6-1) at 147-pounds. Ris-
ner handed Michigan's Lee Deit-
rick his only Big Ten loss this
year.
Northwestern's Stu Marshall
goes into the 157-pound matches
with an 8-2-2 mark, including a
draw with Wolverine Big Ten
champ Rick Bay, and the Wild-
cats' Dick Ernst at 167 is 8-2-1.
Meanwhile, the rest of the con-
ference is still going to throw a
lot of talent at the defending
champs. Iowa's Steve Parker
whizzed through the entire con-
ference season without a loss at
137-pounds, but Michigan's Cal
Jenkins beat him handily 5-3 dur-
ing a holiday tournament in Chi-
cago. Jenkins was injured and

didn't face Parker when the two
teams met at Ann Arbor.'
Greenlee Strong
Another Hawkeye that the
Iowans will count on is 147-
pounder Joe Greenlee (8-1-1) who
finished fourth in the conference
tourney last year. And along with
Greenlee and Risner, Michigan's
Deitrick will find top competition
with Illinois' Clayton Beattie, who
sports a 12-0-1 mark for the win-
ter.
Illini John Jeffrey's 10-0-1 rec-
ord looks strong at 167-pounds
along with Wisconsin's Elmer
Beale, who has lost only once in
twelve matches this winter. Only
other Badger on the top of the
rankings is 157-pounder Steve
Martin (11-2) who was a fourth-
place finisher at 157 a year ago.
Ohio State's Mike Berry looks

about tops in the 123-pound
bracket with an undefeated con-
ference record. Berry beat Michi-
gan's lightweight Ralph Bahna
this year, 4-1.
Indiana will bank hopes on
picking up a few points with 130-
pounder Bob Campbell (10-0).
McClure Undefeated
In the heavyweight division
Michigan State's Homer McClure
is 4-0-1, Hoosier Lick Conaway
has lost twice in 12 bouts, and
Purdue's Bill Hunt is 5-2.
Minnesota's Lewis K e n n e d y
(12-1) at 137-pounds and Michi-
gan's 167-pounder Bay are the
only defending individual champs
in this year's tourney. Bay holds
the 157-pound title, and Kennedy
won the 130-pound medal when
Hawkeye Parker forfeited with an
injured shoulder.
