PEK Win s OverNa igmaNa o

The final playoffs in intramur-
al basketball were held last night
as the season ended successfully
for each of the winners in some
excellent basketball contests.
Pi Epsilon Kappa took a 40-33
victory over Nu Sigma Nu and also
the top spot in the first division
in Professional Fraternity action.
Throughout the first half the cov-
er was on the hoop as both teams
saw the ball go up and around and
around and out on many occasions.
Strong Rebounding
Strong defensive rebounding by
Scott Maentz helped PEK into a
20-15 halftime lead, which they
slowly increased in the second
half. A slick-passing fast break
spearheaded by Emory Luck and
Gary McNitt insured their vic-
tory. Maentz ended up with 24
points for the winners.
NSN, which swished several des-
perate long shots in a last-ditch
rally, was led by John Tidwell's
16, most of which were in the
second half.
In other top attractions, Tau
Epsilon Rho dumped the Falcons
43-38 and Sigma Chi shook off
Sigma Phi Epsilon 53-40 in a so-
cial fraternity game. A gathering
of fifty spectators watched a slim
23-20 Sigma Chi lead slowly grow
in a well-deserved triumph. Sigma
Chi did not have the game on ice
until late in the game.
A red-hot TER team jumped
into a 24-15 halftime lead over
the Falcons. The second half turn-
ed into a continuous fast break.
Each side would hurry the ball
down court when it got control.
TER, however, controlled the
boards most of the time, and near
the end slowed up play consider-
ably. Delyle Condie sank 16 to lead
the winners; Joe McDade put in

another 9. The brilliant second
period Falcon comeback was
sparked by M. C. Burton's, 11
points giving him a game-high 18.
Bob Topp contributed 6 to the
Falcons effort, as well as hauling
down several rebounds.
Phi Delta Chi outscored Gam-
ma Alpha 50-34, with a brilliant
30-point effort by Craig Taggart.
Alpha Kappa Psi ran over Del-
ta Sigma Pi in a 40-13 contest.
Phi Chi put in 32 for a victory
over Phi Rho Sigma, who got 25.
Delta Sigma Delta won a close
one from Delta Theta Phi, 47-44.
Latvians Win
In independent action the Lat-
vians pulled down a 48-36 tri-
umph over Nakamura. The Lat-
vians generally controlled both
boards with their extra reight.
Klaus Scheler led the Latvians
with 25 points and teammate Ed

THE NEW LOOK-The Michigan coaches believe they have one of the best freshmen groups ever this year. Pictured in action during
the November varsity-freshmen, game are from left to right: Bill Buntin (30) blocking John Oosterbaan's (34) shot, Chuck Adams (21),
Larry Thegoning (4), George Pomey, and Ed Petrick (14). In the team picture (left to right) are, top row: Dick Hildreth, Mike Schmidl-
kofer, Paul Schuldt, Pomey, Buntin, Tregoning, Adams, Paul Zosel and freshmen coach Tom Jorgenson; bottom row: Paul Tucker,

Michigan Boasts Strong Frosh Squad

Tapered to 13 inches

You've got to admire Coach Dave
Strack for his conduct during the
basketball season this year - he
hasn't once said, "Wait till next
It's even more admirable when
you consider that if he had it
would have been excusable. Strack
just might have one of the best
freshman teams in Michigan's his-
Best Since Lee, Burton
Strack and his assistants believe
the team to probably be the best
since the one that had George Lee
and M. C. Burton. And since the.
Burton-Lee team had the best
varsity record since 1948, this frosh
team must be at least the second'
best that Michigan has had.
The main reason, for the optim-
ism about this year's squad is 6'7"
235-lb. Bill Buntin. Michigan has
had tall players before and it has
had heavy players before, but this
is the first time the Wolverines
have been able to combine the
features into one man.
Buntin is a virtual sleeper. He
sat out his senior year at Detroit
Northern when he broke his leg in
the first game of the season. Last
year he was out of school and
Walker Dethroned
By The Associated Press
KANSAS CITY-James King of
Tulsa has dethroned Chet Walker
of Bradley as the basketball scor-
ing champion of the Missouri Val-
ley Conference.
The Fort Smith, Ark., junior
fired in 57 points in hisr final
two games for a total of 249
points, a 20.8 average for 12 games.
Walker had a 23.9 average, but
missed two games and collected
only 239 points. Walker took the
top honors last season with 313

as the good big man that Wolver-
ine basketball teams have always
He's Coachable
Assistant Coach Tom Jorgenson,
who is in charge of the freshmen,
say. that Buntin's best quality is
that he is coachable. ,"He takes

The freshman basketball team
will play a team composed of
reserves from the varsity squad
at 2 p.m. Saturday before the
varsity game with Purdue at 4
p.m. Some freshman players to
watch for are Bill Buntin (30),
George Pomey (6), Larry Tre-
goning (4), Chuck Adams (21),
and Ed Petrick (25).
of things better now than when he
came here and I'd have to say that
he'll continue to get better."
Visitors to the freshman games
which are held prior to the varsity
game have marveled at the big
fellow's shooting ability from the
outside, not to mention his close
in tactics. "The most important
thing about Bill," Jorgenson says,
"is that he came to play."
Buntin isn't the only impressive
thing about the team, however.
"We've got good speed on the
freshman team," Jorgenson said.
"They pass the ball well and work
Two Other Players
The team also has two other
players with some impressive cre-
dentials. They are Larry Tregoning
and George, Pomey.
Tregoning was a first team all-
State forward from Ferndale High.
Tregoning, 6'4", was a 20-plus
scorer at forward spot but will
probably be worked in as a guard.
Lithe and very quick for his size,
Tregoning has a good shot. He will

and Lab. Coats

be aided by his height at a guard
slot, an advantage not enjoyed by
this year's starting guards. "It
really helps to have that advan-
tage in height," said Jorgenson, a
5'1" guard in his playing days.
"Larry has real smooth moves.
He has a little to learn on defense
yet, but he'll improve," Jorgenson
Illini Missed Him
Pomey is an all-Stater from Illi-
nois and one of the few that 'the
Illini didn't get. At 6'4" he has the
height and weight to be a Big Ten
forward, but could also fill in at
guard if needed. "He's a very'
smart player-has good speed and
is a good driver," is the way Jor-
genson summed him up. "He's also
a good defensive player."
Starting at the guard slots for
the freshmen are Chuck Adams
and Ed Petrick.
Adams, another Illinois product,
averaged 20 points plus in high
school as a forward. Jorgenson de-
scribes Adams as a strong player
with big hands.' "He's the best

worker I've had," Jorgenson added.
Petrick is a less heralded Illinois
ball player and is the only one
of the starting five who was a
guard in high schools He is 6'2"
and regarded by Jorgenson as a
good shooter.
Other Top Members
Some other top members of the
squad are Dick Hildreth, 6'4"
guard from East Lansing; Tom
Frick, 6'0" guard from Springfield,
Illinois; and Tom Ludwig, 5'1"
guard from Sault Ste. Marie.
Rounding out the large squad
are Paul Schuldt, Roger Sullivan,
Bob Stockcamp, Paul Tucker, and
Dan Dinunzio.

Jim Skala, the other assistant
basketball coach, regards the
freshman team as one of the best
in the Big Ten. "Indiana has the
most talent, but of the others I'd
rate only Illinois over our fresh-
men-and that's only because they
have more of them," he said.
Even if none of the freshmen
turn out to be stars, at least they
will give size and competition to
the varsity next year, something
that hasn't been seen in Ann Arbor
in a long, long time. "We figure we
will have nine real good players
we will be able to call on next
year," Jorgenson said.
Wait'll next year!
