PAGE SIX THE MICHIGAN DAILY TUESDAY. MARCH 10. 1964
by Mike Block
The Week That Was
This was the gretest week that ever was in Michigan sports
history. It was the first time Wolverine teams ever won five Big Ten
championships in a single winter. And it was the first time any
Western Conference team has ever performed this feat-unless you
In 1952, Illinois took home the trophies in basketball, track,
gymnastics, wrestling, and fencing. If you substitute hockey (a sport
in which the Illini have never competed in the conference for fenc-
ing (in which Michigan hasn't, participated), these are exactly the
same crowns which the Wolverines cinched this week.
Over the years, these two schools have clearly dominated
the Big Ten winter sports scene. Illinois has won or shared three
or more winter sports championships in 10 different years, the
.first being 1912, and the last 1958. In addition to the quintet of
crowns in 1952, they won four in 1951 and garnered three plus
a tie in 1935.
Michigan has had at least a trio of titles or shares thereof six
times, but this is the first time the Blue has ever won more than
three. Four of these exceptional years have come in the last
five campaigns, 1962 being the only exception. Only one other
school has ever won three winter crowns in a year as much as
one time, and that was Ohio State in 1950.
Incidentally, 1944 was one of the most fabulous years in Wol-
verine annals, if sports. of all seasons are considered. In that year,
Michigan copped seven conference championships: swimming, wrestl-
ing, indoor and outdoor track, baseball, golf, and tennis. They failed
to win only football and basketball.
Michigan's and Illinois' domination of the Big Ten is also appar-
ent when you add up the total number of winter titles won. Since
1902, Illinois has been victorious a total of 74 times,.with nine ties'
while the Wolverines have had 59 victories and four draws. The
now-departed Chicago has 32 wins and three ties, Ohio State 27
and four, and all the rest have 20 or fewer championships.
If the 19 Illini fencing titles and the three Michigan hockey
trophies are subtracted from the above totals, the Wolverines
have a slight edge, 56 to 55, in the sports in which both schools
have always participated. The way Michigan has been going
lately, this margin is bound to increase rapidly.
So much for numbers. Let's get down to what actually hap-
pended this past week. The basketball team, for one, even with
last night's loss to Purdue, had a share of the Big Ten crown
for the first time since 1948. Ironically, Michigan owes its share
of the championship largely to arch-rival Michigan State's
dramatic win over Ohio State Saturday night. They enter the
NCAA playoffs this Friday against Loyola or Murray State.
The hockey team, meanwhile, salted away first place in the
Western Collegiate Hockey Association by burying Michigan State,
9-4 and 13-4, over the weekend. In so doing, they tied the Michigan
record for most goals in a season, and wound up with a regular
season won-lost mark of 21-3, their best campaign ever in this
respect. The icers can now look forward to the WCHA playoffs,
beginning Thursday at the Coliseum.
Down at Columbus, the track team swept past a favored Wis-
consin aggregation, 67-48, for its fifth win or draw in an indoor
meet in the last six years. Paced by individual champs Des Ryan,
Al Ammerman, Kent Bernard, Ted Kelly, and Roger Schmitt, the
Wolverines took command from the start, and the Badgers never
seriously threatened their lead.
There were two meets at Madison, gymnastics and wrestl-
Ing, and Michigan squads once again came away with triumphs
in these fields of endeavor. The gymnasts, getting phenomenal
performances from the tumblers and trampolinists, defeated
a much-improved Iowa team 131-112 for their fourth straight
conference crown. Captain Arno Lascari, injured elbow and all,
and Mike Henderson picked up firsts, while Gary Erwin and
Johnny Hamilton tied for that honor on the tramp.
The grapplers wrapped up their second straight Big Ten
title despite the loss of NCAA champ Rick Bay. Again Iowa was
the number one contender, but the Wolverines outdistanced
them 56-41. Featherweight Ralph Bahna and 147-pounder Lee
Detrick garnered individual trophies.
Up at Minneapolis, the swimmers didn't win, but they did put
up a strong performance against Indiana's powerhouse. The Hoosiers
took it, 2231-171%, but the Wolverines came about 40 points closer
to them than in 1963, easily subduing third place Ohio State. Sopho-
mores Bill Farley and Rich Walls scored firsts for the Blue, and
bolstered by this year's talent-laden freshman team, the Wol-
verines have every chance to bypass the Hoosiers in 1965.
So there you have it-a week that saw Michigan's .great
athletic tradition become a little bit greater. Funny how those
high academic standards frighten all the good athletes away.

Eddy said. "But my team played
a great game."
Besides shooting 53 per cent
for the whole game, the Boiler-
makers only lost the rebounding
battle, 43-39. And in the second
half they actually outfought the
Wolverines on the boards, 20-11.
Michigan finished the regular
season with a 20-4 mark, its larg-
est number of victories in history.
The Wolverines and the Buckeyes
are co-champions of the Big Ten
with 11-3 records. Michigan plays
the winner of the Loyola-Murray
State game Friday night in Min-
neapolis in the semi-finals of the
Russell ledaboth teams in scor-
ing with 27 and pushed his total
point output for 24 games to 593,
the largest total in Wolverine his-
tory. Buntin was second highest
scorer for the Wolverines with 19
points, boosting his season total
to 534 points.
.For the first 10 minutes of the
first half it was a close ball game
with both teams being held to a
maximum lead of four points
throughout the half. Buntin
scored quickly for Michigan with
a sweepinghook. Russell stole the
ball before Purdue had a chance
to shoot and Cantrell hit on a
25-foot jumper from the left of
the free throw line.hThis 4-0 lead
was the largest the Wolverines
were to have all evening.
After Buntin's lay-up at 10:20
that put the Wolverinesabehind,
21-19, Michigan couldn't score for
almost three minutes. Purdue was
on top by ten points, 31-21, when
Darden's j u m p e r, Russell's
jumper, and two free throws by
Russell cut the Purdue lead to
41-38. But Garland's shot as the
buzzer sounded dropped in for a
basket and Purdue led 43-38 at
Purdue enlarged its lead to eight
points but Michigan finally moved
ahead with half the period gone.
Behind 55-50, Darden hit on a
jump shot and Russell shoveled a
pass into Buntin under the boards
which was quickly turned irto a
For the rest of the game both
teams were within a point or two
of each other except when the
Boilermakers grabbed a five-point
lead with 7:40 to go. The Wolver-
ines cut this down to a tie only
to lose in the fatal last two
minutes of the game.

MILWAUKEE - Cliff Nuttall,
lanky Michigan hurdler, set a U.S.
Track and Field Federation record
last night, when he skimmed thej
50-yard high hurdles in 6.1 sec-
onds at the 13th Milwaukee Jour-
nal Indoor Games.
Nuttall's time bettered the US-
TFF record of 6.3 seconds by Wis-
consin's Steve Muller In 1963. In
victory, Nuttall got revenge over
another Badger, Ted Dakin, who
narrowly defeated him in the Big
Ten Indoor Meet last Saturday.
Nuttall's clocking was, however,
:00.2 off the American record set
by Hayes Jones in 1961.
In the high jump, Wolverine
sophomore Bob Densham scored
an upset victory over a strong
field, including 7-footer Joe Faust.
Densham leaped 6'8" and was
awarded first place on the basis
of fewer misses. Both Faust and
Indiana's Cornelius Miller also
jumped 6'8". Michigan's Big Ten
Indoor champion, Al Ammerman,
failed to place.
Another Michigan sophomore,
Dorie Reid, performed well, with.
a third place finish in the 50-yard
dash. Bob Moreland of Michigan
State won the event in the USTFF
record of 5.2 seconds.
Michigan Places Second
To UCLA in Final Poll
In the 500-yard run, Michigan's
Dan Hughes placed fourth. Wis-
consin's Elzie Higginbottom, Big

sion, and $2.00 for reserved
the old USTFF record of 58.6,
held by Dave Mills of Purdue.
Wisconsin's Al Montalbano won
the 600-yard run in the time of
1,11.5. Montalbano, who finished
second to Michigan's Kent Ber-
nard in the Big Ten Indoor Meet,
seemed to benefit from Bernard's
absence. Roger Kerr, Iowa's de-
fending USTFF champion, nipped
former Illinois ace George Kerr
at the wire for second place.

Michigan ended up the season
just one notch behind unbeaten
UCLA in the final Associated
Press college basketball poll of
the 1964 season.
UCLA's Bruins are the first

Francisco Dons in 1956.
UCLA collected 34 first place
votes and 392 points in the final
voting by a special regional panel
of 40 writers and broadcasters.
The Wolverines wound up sec-
ond with 341 points.
The Cincinnati Bearcats, last
