Winless Wildcats Seek
First Win Against Michi

By TOM WEBBER
Barring a very large upset by
Minnesota tomorrow and barring
an even larger upset by Michi-
gan, the Ohio State basketball
team will break another record
in Yost Field House Monday night.
The fabulous Buckeyes haven't
lost a home game in their last 32
starts, dating back to March, 1959,
so Minnesota will be a slight un-

Then the Michigan Daily Sports
Staff is what you have been
looking for. It's easy to join.
Just come over to the Student
Publications Building, 420 May-
nard Street (next to the SAB)
and see CLIFF MARKS any-

ning is so much a habit with
the Bucks. For Monday night they
will also be going after their 68th
win over a three-year span.
They've lost four over that span.
The Buckeyes are also on their
way to another record, but nobody
is paying much attention to that
one. In their games thus far they
have shot at a 50.9 per cent clip,
which would erase the present 49.7.
per cent record in the books. No-
body's paying much attention be-
cause the owner of the present'
record is the 1959-60 Ohio State
team and in second place is the
1960-61 Ohio State team.
The lineup for the Buckeyes will
be familiar: Lucas, Havlicek, Doug
McDonald, Mel Nowell, and Dick
Reasbeck. If the pattern of Ohio
State games continues,, however,
they will play a little over half of
the game and the reserves will
mop up.
Coach Fred Taylor's boys lead
the Big Ten in every department
this year and are once again the
number one team in the nation.
They lead field goal percentage,
free throw percentage, average
points a game, least points al-
lowed, rebounds and won-lost per-
centage.
It is advisable to come early on
Monday since nobody remembers
the last time that Ohio State play-
ed to a less than capacity house.
It's that way with the Buckeyes.
Everything is perfect.

derdog at Columbus. It doesn't
help that Jerry Lucas and John
Havlicek out-rebounded the whole
Gopher team in their first en-
counter.
So at 8:00 Monday night Ohio
State will probably be shooting
for its 24th consecutive Big Ten
victory, which would break the
oldest record on the Big Ten
books of 23 straight wins by the
1912 Wisconsin team.

Michigan's cagers will make
their second appearance tomor-
row before a Midwest television
audience (4:30, channel 2) against
cellar - lodged Northwestern in
Evanston.
Northwestern Coach Bill Rohr
has, been frantically switching his
starters to come up with a winning
combination. Captain Ralph Wells,
tenth in last season's conference
scoring race, is the only regular
to survive the shake-up. Even
leading scorer Bill Cacciatore with
a 14 point average has found him-
self on the bench lately.
Needs Jumpers
Rohr's problem is not a lack of
good shooters, but rather not
enough rebounding strength. Per-
centage-wise the Wildcats are
outshooting their opponents but
are not being outrebounded.
He was well aware of this when
he commented, "If we were to use
our best shooting line-up, it would
have to include Wells (6'1"), Cac-
ciatore (5'11"), Rich Falk (6'), Bill
Gibbs (6'2"), and Phil Keeley (6'-
5").
"That means we'd have a line-
up averaging less than 6'2". Much
as we'd like to utilize their shoot-
ing ability, we can't think in those
terms when we know rebounding
is our key problem."
Three Guards
On occasion Rohr will have
Wells, Cacciatore, and Falk, who
are all guards, in the line-up at
the same time to get an even bal-
ance of scoring and rebounding.
Wells will move to forward and
the Wildcats will try to spring
him loose in a one on one situa-
tion under the basket where he is
tough to stop.

By TOM WEBBER
It has been an odd season for
the basketball team, but you won't
find Coach Dave Strack complain-
ing.
Owners of a 2-7 record when
the Big Ten season opened, the
Wolverines continued the loss
skein by dropping two straight to
Illinois and Ohio State. They then
promptly surprised everybody by
knocking off powerful Iowa and
Don Nelson. The upset seemed
even more amazing when the Wol-
verines dropped their next two
games to Michigan State and De-
troit.
But lo! Now Strack's charges
have matched their Big Ten win
production of all last year by
whipping previously unbeaten
Wisconsin, 81-74. Two" upsets in
five games and seventh place in
the Big Ten race-not bad for a
team conceded tenth place in pre-
season polls.
More importantly the Wolver-

ines now face lowly Northwest-
ern and have a chance to win
their third Big Ten game - more
then a Michigan team has won
since the 1958-59 season. More-
over, it ended a 34-game road los-
ing streak dating back to' Feb. 2,
1959.
The win also denied the Badgers
the right to say that they were
tied with Ohio State for the league
lead, a matter of much pride.
The win was also significant in
a number of other respects: John
Oosterbaan, Bob Cantrell, and
Doug Herner, in the doghouse for
missing practice and suspended
for the Detroit game, came off the
bench to lead the Wolverines to
the win. Cantrell sank three clutch
free-throws in the waning minutes
when Michigan held 'a precarious
two-point advantage.
Suppresses Press

The. Wolverines continued to
show a stern zone defense. The
zone was a prime factor in the
Iowa win which stopped Nelson.
Bench Helps
Strack also found that his total
depth was a little better than he
thought. Forward Bob Br'own and
guards Steve Schoenherr and Hir-
am Jackson played a considerable
part of the Detroit game, and
Brown and Schoenherr also start-
ed against Wisconsin.
"I figure to go with eight players
from now on," Strack said. This
is opposed to the six players he
has been using. "I figure that I
have five men (Cantrell, Herner,
Schoenherr, Jackson and Jon

Hall) whom I can use at guard
without hurting me," he added.
Strack also says he will continue
to start Brown at the forward
spot for rebounding strength. He
still is undecided about who will
start at guards.
FoulShots Good
The team as a whole shot 76
per cent from the free throw line
(19-25), somewhat of an improve-
ment over the season's 65 per cent
accuracy.
Captain Hall also continued his
high scoring. He followed up a 20
point total against Detroit with
16 against the Badgers.
In all the Wolverines had quite
a memorable evening in Badger-

conference victory and he
nected for 20 points in the
point loss to Indiana. The
guard made a spectacular B
debut two years ago whe
threw in 26 against this sam
diana' in his first confe
game.
Bill Woislaw (6'9") and
LaPossa (6'3") have been sl
in and out, too. Woislaw,
has played inconsistently thi
son, pulled down 16 reboun
the Indiana game playing o
half. And the second-leadin
bounder LaPossa has been h
in double figures in the las
gaipes.

the top reserve guard.
The players were suspend
Strack for missing a practic
sion after the Michigan
game. They consequently i
another practice which wa
ranged at the first session.
Strack emphasized that th
pension was the result or mi
the practice sessions and
way was connected withthei
prior to the suspension."All
played -hard for me befor
suspension, and they have I
just as hard after it," Strack
"The incident is closed as I
I'm concerned."
Strack did indicate, hov
that Bob Brown will probably

Herner, whom Strack considers
to be the best for bringing the
ball upcourt against a pressing
defense, rendered the Badger full-
court press ineffective with his
dribbling and ball-handling.
Oosterbaan, the team's leading
scorer with a 16.7 average, tossed
in 13 points to aid the cause.
In addition, Tom Cole showed
signs of coming out of his shoot-
ing slump by scoring 23 points, in-
cluding 11-12 from the free throw
line.

BY DAVE GOOD
Nobody ever thought Dave De-
Busschere was one of the scrubs,
but people had their doubts about
big Fred Thomann until he start-
ed his first game against Michi-
gan last month.
DeBusschere, 6'5" All-America
candidate at forword for Detroit,
accounted for 23 points and 23 re-
bounds as the Titans coasted past
,the shorthanded Wolverines here
Feb. 1, 82-74.
Thomann, a 6'9" sophomore
who had scored only two points
in previous action as a reserve
center for Michigan State, team-
ed up with soph forward Pete Gent
to outlast Michigan here Jan. 20,
80-74.
Combine for 43
Thomann scored 21 points and
hauled down 15 rebounds, while
Gent, five inches shorter, got 22
points and 17 rebounds.
Coach Dave Strack was disap-
pointed with the results of both
games but was high on praise of
DeBusschere and Thomann.
"DeBusschere ranks among the
top ten ball players in the coun-
try in my opinion," commented
Strack. "Thomann's got a lot go-

ing for him. He was the tallest
man on the floor. I think he's a
good ball player right now."
Michigan tried its usually suc-
cessful zone defense off and on in
both games, but Thomann scored
in close on hooks and Gent made
the most of every opportunity to
score easy lay-ups.
The Spartans racked up a 64-51
rebounding edge largely because
Michigan center John Harris was
still hampered from a charlie
horse he got in the Iowa game
and couldn't jump.
DeBusschere dominated the de-
fensive boards for Detroit. He did
almost all his shooting from 20-25
feet out, hitting six straight jump
shots early in the first' half but
tailing off to 3-16 in -the second
half.
After the first 10 minutes, Mich-
igan was never in the Detroit
game, trailing by as much as 21
points. The eight-point margin at
the buzzer was the closest the Wol-
verines got. Detroit center Dick
Dzik hit six free throws near the
end and finished .with 19 points.
The Spartans held a six-to-eight
point lead for most of the second
nalf of their game; but Michigan

got within two, 76-74, on Captain
Jon Hall's free throw. With 23
seconds left, Hall had to foul Art
Schwarm, who missed his foul
shot.
Michigan was tied up for the re-
bound and Hall got the tip on the
jump ball, but MSU's Lonnie San-
ders picked off the ball in the air
and the Spartans scored four quick
points in the last 14 seconds.,
Michigan got good scoring bal-
ance in both games, as Tom Cole
(19), Hall (17), John Oosterbaan7
(16) and Bob Cantrell (10) all hit
double figures against Michigan
State.
Oosterbaan, Cantrell and Doug
Herner were suspended for the
Detroit game, so Hall got 20 points,
John Harris 18 and Cole 16.
Bob Brown and Steve Schoen-
herr, who both started the De-
troit game, chipped in with eight
and six points, respectively.
