He lost his shutout at 15:15 of
the third period when Pat Casey
batted in Barry Johnson's rebound

ance. He beat Toronto 4-1 in Mich-

But despite his strong perform-
ance Michigan Coach Al Renfrew
indicated that he would go with
junior Dave Butts in tonight's
rematch. "That's the only way
we'll find out which one of them is
better," Renfrew smiled.
"Gray was caught out of posi-

tinued, "but he moved pretty well
for a man of his size."

Michigan Tech corps of sturdy
defensemen got in the way.
"We skated well," said Renfrew,
"despite the slow ice. But Michigan
Tech is a good club. They were
much better than Toronto."
Strangely enough Michigan's
big gun of last year, Red Berenson,
didn't pick a point for the second
straight game, somewhat of an
oddity for the big guy.
Playing at right wing instead of
his customary center slot, the Red-
head had his opportunities, but the
red light wouldn't go on. Three
times he cut in alone around the
Tech defense, once having his shot
deflected over the open corner of
the net and twice being stopped at
close range by Bauman.

Cagers Ready for Ball State
By BILL BULLARD
Coach Dave Strack is anxious
to see how his basketball team
will perform in a game.
"We've worked hard for six'
weeks," said Coach Strack. "But
there's nothing like competition
for a team."
After six weeks of practice, the
1961-62 Michigan basketball squad
could never be more ready to start
its season. Ball State will provide
the opportunity this afternoon at
4 p.m. in Yost Fieldhouse.
In Good Shape
Except for Hiram Jackson and
Jim Ludwig, the team is in good
physical shape for Ball State.
Jackson, a sophomore who was ex-
pected to see considerable action
this season, injured his leg in the
varsity - freshman game Tuesday
night. He has a cast on his knee
now and it won't be removed for

MINNEAPOLIS (P) - The Uni-
versity of Minnesota today cleared
the way for a likely bid for its
second-place Big Ten football team
to play in the Rose Bowl.
By a 108 to 33 vote in a closed
meeting, the Minnesota Faculty
Senate, which has final authority
in such matters, voted to accept
a formal bid to play in the Pasa-
dena New Year's Day game should
one be extended.
It would be Minnesota's second
straight Rose Bowl appearance.
The Gophers lost to Washington
17-7 last year.'
Await Formal Bid
No foimal bid has been made to
any team, but as a result of the
vote today, an invitation from the
Athletic Association of Western
Universities (Big Five), the host
group, could be expected soon.
Minnesota would meet the Univer-
sity of California at Los Angeles,
the Big Five champion, in the
Minnesotakthus bounced unex -
pectedly back into. the Rose Bowl
scene just three days after the
Ohio State Faculty Council nar-
rowly decided against the Big Ten
champion Buckeyes going.
Ohio State, like second-choice
Minnesota, had not been 'given an
official invitation. But Ohio.-State,
like Minnesota, was, acting on a
"will you come if we invite you?"
Minnesota, barred from a con-
ference title tie with the Buckeyes
by a last-game 23-31 loss to Wis-
consin, would go to Pasadena an-
xious to atone for what was con-
sidered a disappointing perform-
ance last year against Washington
by the then No. 1 rated Gophers.
This year Minnesota, given little
chance to repeat as Big Ten and
national champion, compiled a
surprising 7-2 record. Minnesota
lost its opener to Missouri 6-0 in
the rain, then beat Oregon, North-
western, Illinois, Michigan, Michi-I
gan State (then unbeaten and
ranked No. 1), Iowa, and Purdue

The Rose Bowl officials are not
set yet on who they will invite to
oppose the Bruins. Speculation
that the Pacific Coast may be con-
sidering Army or Navy for the
Rose Bowl was heightened by the
decision to put off the final selec-
tion until tonight.
Gophers in Front
The Gophers and Michigan State
are said to have the inside track
for the bowl in that order. Army
or Navy would enter only if both
Big Ten schools spurned the bid.
With the Gophers faculty approval
Minnesota appears to be the best
bet to spend New Year's Day in
the city of roses.

for an indefinite period. As the
6'5" forward, he was also part of
Coach Strack's plans for this sea-
In all other respects the team
is ready for the opener, Coach
Strack said. "This is a ball club
which needs competition and I
think it will improve with compe-
tition," he explained. "We're well
conditioned and ready to play."
Tomorrow's game with Ball State
will be the first time the two
teams have played each other in
basketball. Ball State reportedly
has one of its finest teams in many
years. Their roster includes seven
lettermen, two promising transfer
students, and six numeral winners
from a freshman squad that lost
only one game last season.
Starters for the Muncie, Ind.
team include three regulars from
last year's squad. They are guards
Dan Thurston and John Kunze
and forward Mike Readnour. All
three players had scoring averages
in double figures last season. They
were part of a team which scored
78.3 points per game.
The other two positions on the
team are filled by 6'3" junior
transfer Larry Moudy at forward
and 6'6" sophomore Ed Butler at
center. Coach Jim Hinga has other
capable men for replacements and
won't lack fresh materail to try to
wear down the Michigan team.
Michigan will have an advan-
tage in height over the Cardinals
in the front line. Starting for the
Wolverines at forward are 67"
Tom Cole and 6'4" John Ooster-
baan. Center John Harris si 65".
Have Some Depth
Captain Jon Hall and sophomore
Bob Cantrell are set to start at the
guard positions. However, Coach
Strack also has competent re-
serves to use in case his regulars
tire or aren't playing well. Guards
Doug Herner and Tom Eveland,
forwards Barry Andrews and Char-
lie Higgs and center Doug Green-
wold are the first reserves likely to
Coach Strack believes that Ball
State will give Michigan a tough
time and should provide a chal-
lenging opening game. He doesn't
know for sure how the team will
perform but says that, "I have
expectations for us to improve
over Tuesday night." He was re-
ferring to the varsity-freshman
game which was disappointing to
him as far as the varsity's play
Renfrew, however, didn't seem
to be too worried as Berenson's
linemates, Cortistine and Wilkie,
performed beyond expectations in
their first WCHA test.
"Wilkie is going to be a great
one," he said, "and how about
Coristine, and Pendlebury, and
Kelly, and Carl White, and ..."
"They all did a good job."
It was a happy evening for the
Wolverines who have sights on
the WCHA championship. For the
fifth time in a row they had han-
dIed Michigan Tech on Michigan
ice and for the second season in
a row they had opened the league
season with a victory.
And with the pre-series goal of
"at least a split" in the bag tonight
they go after the sweep. .Game
time is 8 p.m.
