By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Howard (Butch)
Komives, Bowling Green's hot-
handed backcourt ace, is the ma-
jor college basketball scoring
The only Michigan players to
place among the individual scor-
ing leaders were guard Cazzie Rus-
sell and center Bill Buntin. Rus-
sell was 24th with a 24.8 points-
per-game average, while Buntin
was 37th with a 23.2 average. Rus-
sell also nailed down the 20th po-

As a team Michigan was 11th

Wolverines, were also among the
team leaders in both free throw
percentage and field goal percent-
age with .726 for 19th and .470 for
11th places, respectively.
The Wolverines also were 13th
among the leaders in average scor-
ing margin over all opponents
with a 11.1 uoint spread.
The 6-foot-1 senior fired at a
36.7 points-per-game -clip - third
highest average in history - and
headed a record list of seven col-
legians with averages of better
than 30 points per-game, accord-
ing to final statistics released yes-
terday by the NCAA.

Komives vaulted from 45th po-

He capped his college career with
a record 50 straight free throws
in his last five games.
Only Frank Selvy, former Fur-
man star, and ex-Utah gunner
Bill McGill finished with higher
season averages. Selvy averaged
41.7 points per-game in 1954 and
McGill posted a 38.8 mark in 1962.
Team Records
A pair of team records fell. De-
troit's 96.1 scoring average erased
the mark of 95.8 set by Morehead
State in 1956. Davidson shot .544
from the floor, eclipsing the field
goal accuracy record of .521 held
by Auburn's 1960 team.
Terry Holland of Davidson led
the individual marksmen with a
.631 percentage. Tulsa's Rick Park
missed only 13 of 134 foul shots
for a winning .903 percentage in
free throw accuracy.
Bob Pelkington of Xavier, Ohio,
won the rebounding title with
21.8 recoveries per game. Paul
Silas of Creighton, the leader most
of the season, stumbled during the
2NCAA playoffs and finished with
21.75 per game.

Ten different players connected
for 50 points or more in a game.
Texas A&M's Bennie Lennox
scored 53 against Wyoming for
the single game high.
Other Leaders
Other team leaders were San
Jose State in defense, with an av-
erage of 54.5 points; Miami, Fla.;
in free throw accuracy, with a .760
percentage, and Iona in percent-
age of rebounds, with .640.

There are a lot of holes to be

No, Cazzie Russell didn't make
the Olympic team.
After more than a week of try-
outs across the,. country by the
best amateur players in the na-
tion, a team was selected to rep-
resent the United States in the
1964 Olympics, and Russell wasn't
one of the chosen few.
"It's pretty hard to make it on
one foot," Russell said last night.
"After all, I was the only soph-
omore there," he added.
Russell, along with Walt Haz-
zard and a few others were given
the best chance of making the
team before the tryouts, but his
ankle injury was too much of a
handicap for the 6'5" All-Ameri-
can to overcome.
Ancient Injury
Russell said that his ankle was
no worse off than before, and that
all he needs is rest. The injury
dates back to February- 22 when
he. was involved in a freak colli-
sion at Wisconsin with Bob Can-
The team that was selected
consists of six stars from the NC-
AA, one from the NAIA, and sur-
prisingly enough, five from the
ranks of the AAU. The list of six
alternates includes four college

players and two from the armed
Collegiate players on the 12-
man squad are: Walt Hazzard of
UCLA, Bill Bradley of Princeton,
Jim (Bad News) Barnes of Texas
Western, Mel Counts of Oregon
State, Joe Caldwell of Arizona
State, and Jeff Mullins of Duke.
. Lucious Jackson of Pan Ameri-
can College is the lone represen-
tative of the small colleges on
the squad.
Five from AAU
Of the five AAU players picked,
three were from the AAU cham-
pionship team, the Akron Good-
year Wingfoots. The three were
Dick Davies, Pete McCaffrey and
Larry Brown. The other AAU play-
ers were Jerry Shipp of the Phil-
lips Oilers and George Wilson of
the Jamaco Saints.
Wilson, who was outshone on.
the University of Cincinnati team
for three years by Ron Bonham,
was passed by in the original se-
lections of the players who were
to try out for the Games. He
joined up with the Jamaco team,
a squad out of Chicago, and was
eventually selected as an AAU
player, getting the nod ahead of
his Bearcat teammate, Bonham.
The Olympic squad will be
coached by Hank Iba of Oklaho-

ma State and his assistant will be
the coach of the Goodyear AAU
team, Hank Vaughn.
The six alternate members of
the squad who will make the trip
to Japan only if someone on the
12-man team is sick or injured
are: Gail Goodrich of UCLA, Fred
Hetzel of Davidson, Willie Murrell
of Kansas State, Cotton Nash of
Kentucky, Dave Stallworth of Wi-
chita, and Bunk Adams and Reg-
gie Minton of the armed services.

Erwin and some of the other
Wolverines still haven't completed
this season's competition since
the second annual National Gym-
nastics Federation Championships
are coming up in two weeks. The
meet will be held in Iowa City on
April, 17-18.
Erwin has collected more na-
tional medals than any Trampo-
linist in Michigan history except
Ed Buchanan. In 1949-50-51, Bu-
chanan won three consecutive
NCAA titles. He also won two AAU
first places and a Big Ten title.,
Loken said that the choice of
Erwin was an excellent one. "Gary
is a great competitor," Loken says.

Split Games
The Michigan Rugby Club split
a doubleheader last Saturday, los-
ing to Chicago in the first game,
5-0, but beating out Windsor in
the second, 3-0.
Both games were extremely close
as indicated by the scoring mar-
gins. Michigan's less experienced
Blue team played Chicago close
through the first half of their con-
test, but ran out of steam in the
The blue and white-clad Michi-
gan ruggers dominated much of
the match with Windsor, but
couldn't mount a sustained scor-
ing drive. The final margin came
on a penalty kick.
The split leaves the club with
a 3-2 won-lost record for the
spring. This coming Saturday the
ruggers are scheduled to face an
all-star team from Ontario.

Shortly after Roy Heath became faculty advisor and friend to a
group of Princeton University freshmen, he found his students developing
as three psychological types: Non-committers (Xs), Hustlers (Ys), and
Plungers (Zs). The students within each category matured during their
college years, but several from all groups achieved an apex of develop-
ment. They were the Reasonable Adventurers.
Dr. Heath writes of the Xs, Ys, and Zs, in his book The Reasonable
Adventurer, and from his four-year experiment with them proposes a
