Gym-Dandies Seek NCAA Title

By JIM GREINER
Michigan's gymnasts will not be
doing backflips up the Matterhorn
next week if Newt Loken can help
it.
He wants to win the NCAA gym-
nastics championship again and
Disneyland isn't on his Los An-
geles itinerary, yet.
According to Loken, the nation-
al meet, held March 27 and 28,
will be a six-team fight, much un-
like last year. Last April the Wol-
verine gym men ran away with
the title, compiling a record-shat-
tering 129 points to runner-up
Southern Illinois' 73.
With eight men representing
Michigan's Big Ten champions,
the Wolverines will be well-stocked
with capable performers. Loken

will take along three defending
individual champs in Mike Hen-
derson, co-floor exercise winner;
Arno Lascari, defending parallel
bars champion; and Gary Erwin,
tops on the trampoline.
Backing them up will be John
Hamilton, co-Big Ten trampoline
champ and second in tumbling;
Phil Bolton, third in Big Ten
tumbling; Fred Sanders, last
year's conference tramp champ;
Alex Frecska; and John Cashman.
Erwin will have just returned
from the world trampoline cham-
pionships, to be held Saturday in
London. ;
Still Hurt
Lascari, still in pain from his
elbow injury, is Loken's main hope
in all-around competition. Last

year he finished third in the NCAA
meet at Pittsburgh, while he ended
fourth, sore arm and all, in' this
season's Big Ten finals.
Despite the fact that the man
who tied Henderson in the floor ex,
Tom Seward of Penn State, will
not be returning, the Wolverines
will be hard-pressed to win again.
Rusty Mitchell of Southern Illi-
nois will be on hand. He finished
only .025 behind the co-winners
in third.
The Wolverines will be hoping
for sweeps in trampoline and
tumbling to boost their chances.
Erwin and Sanders, who finished
one-two last year, along with
Hamilton, are Loken's tramp
hopes.
Tumbling Trio
Hamilton also figures promin-
ently in Loken's tumbling plans.
Hopefully for Michigan, the trio
of Henderson, Hamilton, and Bol-
ton can repeat their one-two-three
Big Ten performance in Los An-
geles.
Lack of competition could facil-
itate Michigan victories in the
tramp and tumbling. Only South-
ern Illinois, of the Wolverines' five
top opponents, will have anyone
in either of the categories. And it
will have only one.
Loken sees Southern Illinois,
Penn State, Temple, Southern
California, and California as
Michigan's top threats.
Says Loken, "Southern Illinois
is loaded." The Salukis unseated
Michigan in the Midwest Open last

December. Bill and Dennis Wolf,
along with Mitchell, lead the SI
line-up.
Last year Dennis Wolf tied Las-
cari for second on the high bar,
while Mitchell was runner-up in
tumbling and third in floor ex.
Owls Rate
Temple will field a crew com-
posed of this season's Eastern In-
tercollegiate champions. The Owls
have Rich Phillips, who tied for
fifth on the high bar last year,
and Steve Cohn and Ray Cohen,
according to Loken, both very good
in all-around play.
Southern California has what
Loken calls "the best one-two all-
around combination in the nation,
in Bill Barak and Gary Buckner."
Loken is also hoping that teams
such as Michigan State and Iowa
can take points away from his top
competition to boost the Wolver-
ines. Dale Cooper, defending NCAA
rings champ, Jim Curzi, Big Ten
all-around winner, and Todd
Gates will lead the Spartans.
Glenn Gailis and George Hery
will pace the Iowa assault.

Providence First FoeFor
F Icers in Denver

By PERRY HOODv
A lately shot-down Michigan
hockey team will enter the NCAA
playoffs this Friday night against
Providence College, the Eastern
Collegiate Athletic Conference
champions.
The Wolverines barely got by
Michigan Tech last week only to
be rudely dumped by a fast-skat-
ing Denver squad in the WHA
playoffs. Should the icers beat
Providence, they will meet the
winner of the Denver-Rensselaer
Polytechnic match on Saturday.
"We should give Denver a bet-
ter game," said Coach Al Renfrew,
looking forward to the hopeful re-
match. "Denver has a good team.
They'll have the home ice advan-
tage too. In a championship game,
though, anything can happen."
What little is known about the
Providence team has come from
W. B. Kittell, a Michigan alumnus
who has seen both Providence and
Rensselaer play.
Providence Hustles
"They're a typical New England
team-hustle all the time.
"Their goalie is just adequate,"
continued Kittell, Providence's
original starting goalie tried out
for the U. S. Olympic team. Their
second goalie has played the last
part of the season.
The offenseaccording to Kit-
tell, consists of 'three solid lines,
but Mooney and Heffernan are
the men to watch." The Provi-
dence depth situation is much the
same as that of the Wolverines,
he said.
Denver Favored
Rensselaer will be up against a
far-stronger Denver team. "The
second line is the key to RPI's
success," Kittell e:tplained, "but
that's all they have." Denver, how-
ever, sports four lines, which was
more than enough to overwhelm
Michigan last Saturday.
"Denver's defense is especially
strong," added Coach Renfrew.
Rensselaer's goaltender is rated
adequate, while Denver's Buddy
Blom had the lowest goals-against

average in the WCHA this year.
"Blom is good, but we didn't really
test him," added Renfrew.
Providence has never competed
in the NCAA playoff series, but
their "comparison" club, Boston
College, has. Michigan and Boston
College met in the 1950 and 1954
consolation contests, with the Wol-
verines winning both, 10-6 and 7-2.
In the 11 playoff series in which
the Wolverines have competed,
they have taken the title six times,
more than any other team.
New Mexico
U sets Drake
In NIT Action
NEW YORK (P) - The New
Mexico Lobos survived a furious
rally in the closing minutes and
defeated the Bulldogs 65-60 last
night in the quarter-finals of the
National Invitational Basketball
Tournament.
Behind 61-51, Drake closed to
61-60 with 1:03 left, but then saw
any chance for victory go by the
boards when Dick Ellis converted
four free throws, two of them
with 27 seconds left and the other
two with just five seconds on the
clock.
The triumph put the fourth-
seeded Lobos into the semifinals
Thursday night against New York
University.
The exciting finish changed the
boos of the St. Patrick's night
crowd to cheers. Earlier they had
booed New Mexico's ball control
tactics, especially during the last
three minutes of the first half
when, the Lobos just passed the
ball around to set up a final sec-
ond shot-which they missed.
Claude Williams got the Lobos
off to a fast start and Irga Harge
and Ellis followed through in the
second half for what seemed to be
a convincing New Mexico triumph
until Drake's closing heroics.
McCoy McLemore, Drake's high
scorergwith 28 points, ignited the
closing fireworks. Billy Foster
added a free throw and Gene West
got a jumper. Foster did the same
and it was 61-58 with 2:20 left.
With 1:52 left Foster was fouled,
but missed both free throws which
cost Drake dearly as it turned out.
