Kolb Stands Out in Best Season

"I love the game more than
anything else," were the words of
Michigan hockey team rightwing
Jerry Kolb, who is enjoying his
best season since entering organiz-
ed hockey.
Starting the year at center,
Kolb was switched to his wing'
position and has handled the job
exceptionally well. To date, he
stands twelfth among the WCHA
scorers with ten goals and eight
assists for a total of 18 points. In
comparison with his teammates
for all games this year, Kolb is
fifth in the overall scoring de-
partment having racked up 14
goals and 15 assists for 29 points.
His story is-similar to that of
Theta Belts,
Sigs' icor
In I-MPlay.
Sigma Chi and Theta Delta Chi,
using superior height and weight,
overwhelmed their weaker oppon-
ents last night in "A" Social Fra-
ternity action at the IM Building.
Sigma Chi, playing a tight man-
to-man defense which continually
kept its opponent, Alpha Epsilon
Pi, off balance, led 23-11 at half
time. In the second half, they
continued to be in complete con-
trol as Bill Dodd, John Townsend,
and Jim Zubkus paced their at-
tack. All three wound up with
nine points apiece. High scorer of
the game was Phil Feitelson of
AEP with 14 points."
Much Smaller
In the other game played, Paul
Osterbeck, with 11 points, and
Dave Voight, with 10 points, paced
Theta Delta Chi to a 52-28 victory
over a much smaller Alpha Sigma
Phi team.
Using their size to great advan-
tage in controlling the rebounds,
and a tight zone defense which
kept the losers from taking good
shots, Theta pulled away at the
very beginning. By half time they
had run the score up to 25-12 on
the way to their victory. Chuck
Weber, appearing the only one
able tocrack Theta's defense,
paced the losers with 10 points.
ATO Wins
In earlier action last night, Al-
pha Tau Omega, using their great-
er speed to advantage in the fast
break, defeated a much slower
Zeta Beta Tau team, 54-36, as
Dave Molhock and Harvey Chap-
man scored 12 and 15 points re-
spectively for the winners. Dave
Stone led Zeta Beta Tau with 12

In IM bowling, Dick Youngberg

a series in the last ten years when
the ATO's defeated Beta Theta Pi.

any other Canadian hockey play-
er. Kolb hallr from Unity, Sas-
katchewan, which he described as
being so small that the only thing
to do was to play hockey. He be-
gan his career at the age of five
and has "learned from experience"
ever since. He finally broke into
organized competition at 18 when
he, Red Berenson, Gordon Wil-
kie, among others, joined a league
in nearby Regina. Kolb described
himself as a real green horn when
he first played at Regina, but he
feels that his coach there, Frank
Mario, helped improve his game
When Kolb was of college age,
he was approached by representa-
tives of both Denver University,
the University and Northr Dakota
who tried to persuade him to en-
roll in their schools. But the
young hockey player, now a sen-
ior, had other plans.
Had Other Plans
Berenson had already been ac-
cepted at Michigan and it took
little persuasion to get Kolb to
follow suit. "Michigan had a good
name and everyone was going
there," so naturally he followed
suit. It certainly was a lucky
break for the Wolverines that'he-
As has been previously stated,
Kolb is having his best year. He
attributes this mostly to just
"plain confidence. You know a
few more tricks once you're in
your senior year. The guys you're
playing with get to know each
other better."',
Played Everywhere
In his junior year, Kolb played
just about every position - on the
team at one time or another by
filling in wherever his services
were needed., This year he rbegan
as a center. He had never really
played that spot before, but he
quickly "learned the ropes." Al-
though he was later dwitched to
rightwing, Kolb admits that he
would prefer playing center.
Facing a difficult task on any
hockey team is the penalty kill-
er. Coach Al Renfrew has been
purposely using Kolb in this spot

cialty in junior hockey," Kolb
said. "I feel at. ease out there."
Kolb feels that any hockey play-
er must always be thinking on
the ice. It's the guy who can take
advantage of the situation who
gets ahead. Along these same
lines, he commented on the infre-

quency of goals. "That's the thing
that keeps you playing. The guys
don't care about it that much. It's
more important to win."
Very Unique
The WCHA is very unique in
that many of the players on all of
the teams know each other very
well. How do the players feel this
affect about playing against their
friends? "You want to beat them
but beat them fairly. You have no
qualms about giving a good hard
check though." Kolb's sportsman-
like-attitude is in further evi-
dence in that he has never got-
ten into a real fight. He's had
his moments in the penalty box,
but never for "drawing blood."
Majoring in business education,
Kolb hopes to obtain a position
with General Motors in their ac-
counting department. GM has
their own training program, thus

Facing Denver Again
With the coming hockey play-
offs, Michigan will be facing Den-
ver again. "I think we have the
better team now," Kolb said. "I'm
sure we're going to be ready for
them. We know what we have cut
out for us."
Michigan Tech could very like-

ly be playing Michigan in the
playoff finals and Kolb had some
opinions on this too. Tech has
lost only three league games and
they have all been to the Wol-
verines. "They're the toughest
team we've had to face.
"Tech has good speed and bal-
ance," Kolb added. "If we meet
again this year, it will be a real
good game."
Jerry Kolb is the type of player
any coach would term a "tean
man." He seems to play his best
when under pressure. There's a
good chance that the fellow who
"loves hockey more than anything
else" will be heard from again.

Big Ten, Michigan Have
Inconsistent Cage Season

The basketball season is getting
screwier and screwier as far as
Michigan is concerned.
First they knock off, Wisconsin
twice and Iowa once, then they
lose to Northwestern and Michigan
State, the two cellar dwellers. One
minute they play like world-beat-
ers and the next minute they play
like-well, like they couldn't even
beat Northwestern.
Taking Turns
And now Dave Strack's Wolver-
ines are taking turns setting single
game scoring marks. Last Satur-
day Bob Cantrell tossed in 28
points and on Monday John Harris
topped that with a 29 point per-
formance. It's been an interesting
season, and indeed the Wolverines
can make it even more interesting.
Michigan has five games re-
maining and could still finish in

third place. The Wolverines will
have a home court advantage in
three of those games, Indiana,
Northwestern and Purdue. In addi-
tion, the two away games are with
Iowa, a team they have already
beat; and Minnesota, a team lower
than them in the standings.
'Best Team'
If you ask Bud Erickson of Wis-
consin, he'll tell you that it's very
conceivable that Michigan could
win its remaining games. "They're
the best team I've seen in the Big
Ten," he says. His statement holds
an element of truth since Michi-
gan is the only team in the Big
Ten to defeat his Badgers, not
once, but twice.
"I guess they don't play like that
against everybody, but if they did,
they wouldn't lose many," he said
after his recent setback on Satur-
day. "We were seriously chinking
of first place, but that's all over
So as ironic as it may seem, it's
too bad that Michigan doesn't
have any more games with Wis-
How To Beat Iowa
The immediate concern now is
to figure out how to beat Iowa,
whether by a last second free
throw by Tom Cole or otherwise.
It will probably be another low
scoring affair since the two teams
are two of the better defensive
teams and worst offensive teams.
Only Northwestern has scored
fewer points a game. There are a
couple of disadvantages this time
around: it will be in Iowa City and
Don Nelson is still in school.
After that it's back home and
another chance to stop Indiana's
Jimmy Rayl on Monday night. The
"Hustlin' Hoosiers" just plain out-

ton. Strack's thinking of putting
a larger hoop in the south end of
the field house to equalize the

season before the up till then
largest paying crowd at the Con-

Now that both the site of the
playoffs and Michigan's competi-
tion in its first game have been
decided, Renfrew and the team are
concentrating on getting into top
dondition. A playoff win against
Denver in the second game will
almost cinch Michigan's selection
for the NCAA Tournament to be
held at Utica, New York.
Renfrew will go again with the
two goalies this weekend series

probably start (Dave) Butts in the
first game," said Renfrew. "I think
