The Michigan basketball team
will attempt to move one game
over 500 tonight againstnBowling
Green, but it won't be easy ac-
cording, to assistant coach Jim
The game will start at 8:00,
immediately following a freshman
game. The warm-up might be
worth watching because freshman
coach Tom Jorgenson says he has
a pretty talented group, headed
by 6"7" Bill Buntin.
Skala predicts that Bowling
Green, with 6'11" Nate Thurmond
clearing the boards, will be "the
strongest team we will have faced
so far this season."
The Falcons are holders of a
4-1 record including an opening
victory over Bradley, one of the
nation's best. The lone def.eat
came at the hands of Duquesne
Bowling Green plays a "wide
open, fast break type of offense
with very few patterns," accord-
ing to Skala. In five games they
have averaged 79.8 points a game
with four starters averaging in
Skala claims, though, that "de-
fense is their strongest point,"
and statistics back him up. Op-
ponents in five games have aver-
aged a mere 56.2 points a game.
"They are quick, agile ballhawks
who often steal the ball," he con-
Thurmond, a preseason all-
American candidate, was second
only to Jerry Lucas in rebound
percentage last year. He has con-
tinued in this vein this year aver-
aging 14 rebounds a game to lead
"He discourages shooting in
close," commented Skala, "as he
blocks about 13 shots a game."
Although his scoring average has
fillen off last year's pace, it is
explicable by the fact that his
chief function is to clear the
boards to start the fast break.
Guard Howard Komives has led
the scoring attack so far this
season. The sophomore has an 18-
point average and after four
games had made 28 of 29 free
throws, a fabulous .967 average.
The forwards are Elijah Chat-
man, who at 6'3" is second to
Thurmond in the rebounding de-
partment, and Wavey Junior 6'1".
The other guard is Bobby Daw-
son the only starter not averaging
in double-figures. He has stamped
himself, though, as the floor
leader of the squad setting up
plays and battling defensively.
One thing that might go in
Michigan's favor ,is the fact that
Bowling Green has not fared well
away from home. Last year the
Falcons lost all ten of their road
games. This year after winning
their first three at home, they
downed an inferior Western On-
tario University team in London,
Ontario, but fell to Duquense in
Pittsburg. Michigan has won both
its games at home.
'M' Cindermen Compete
In Intrasquad Meet
Track Coach Don Canham un-t
veiled his 1962 track squad at the
annual pre-Christmas intra-squad
meet last night.
Three freshmen who were im-
pressive were hurdler Clarence
Brown, half-miler Gary Hughes,
and dashman Sam Dyke.
The three-quarter mile run pro-
duced a mild surprise as newcom-
er Dave Neahusen nipped highly
rated sophomore David Hayes in
the last turn to take the run in
3:09.4 which according to Can-
ham would be the equivalent of a
4:15 mile. In the other distance
event, the two-mile run, Dennis
Murray pulled away from the
pack in the final two laps to take
the race in a time of 9:37.8 de-
spite a strong finishing effort by
The 60-yd. dash was perhaps
the strongest showing. Sophomore
sprinter Ken Hunter and Mac
Burnley both finished in times of
:06.3 despite the fact that both
were bothered by leg injuries.
The high hurdles were won by
junior Richard Thelwell in a time
of :08.4. He was closely followed

by Brown who finished at the
same time. The lows were won by
Mason in a time of :07.9. This
event was marred, however, by a!
bad fall on the final hurdle tak-
en by junior Canadian hurdles
champion Cliff Nuttall.
The middle distances were char-
acterized by steady, if not flashy,
running. Jay Sampson -took the
1,000-yd. run in a time of 2:22.1
and veteran Wolverine runner'
Charlie Aquino captured the 880
in a time of' 1:57.4.
Ergas Leps was not in action be-
cause of a minor nerve aggrava-
tion of his right knee.

Vacation won't be dull for the
Michigan gymnastics team.
Immediately following Christ-
mas vacation, the Wolverines
travel to Champaign to take on
the perennially tough Illini Jan-
uary 6, in their opening dual meet
of the season. Accordingly, most
of the boys will remain in Ann
Arbor to work out with Coach
The Wolverines' strength will
not be tested after the Illinois
meet until January 28 when they
face a much-improved Iowa squad
in a meet to be held at East Lans-
ing; however, Coach Loken has
some surprises in store for the
first home meet against Central
Michigan January 12, in the form
of exhibitions by girl gymnasts.
Hynds, LaRose Star
Besides Captain Tom Osterland
Michigan will be counting on two
juniors, Gil LaRose and Jim
Hynds, to hurdle them past Illi-
nois and into a repeat Big Ten
Hynds finished third in all-
around in last year's conference
meet. Last week in the Midwest
Open at Chicago he was eighth in
all-around. Loken cites Hynds'
steady performance as a key fac-
tor in the Wolverines' drive for
Big Ten supremacy.
"LaRose has been working for
consistency on his routine;" says
The consistency has paid off.
In the Midwest Open LaRose fin-
ished a strong third in all-around.
The little French-Canadian also
was fourth on the parallel bars,
seventh on high bars, and eighth
on the sidehorse.
Although hampered by a back
injury which kept him from work-
ing out previous to the Chicago
meet, Osterland placed fourth. He
was Big Ten and NAAU champ at
rebound tumbling (trampoline)
last year and is expected to be a
stalwart in his specialty as well
as in tumbling.
"Sidehorsemen Lew Fenner did
real well at Chicago against some
fine competition and will be of
great help to us this year," com-
Ralph Bromund and John Buss
provide additional experience for
the Wolverines; however, Loken's
big question mark will be his'soph-
Sophomores Hold Key
Four sophomores will compete
this year. They are Arno Lascari,
Lewis Hyman, Paul Levy, and Phil
Lascari is an all-around man
from Buffalo. "He has a lot of po-
tential and a little experience could
make him an outstanding all-
around man," remarks Loken.
"Lascari is a hard worker and
should add many points for Mich-
igan this season. He was hamper-
Open, not a bad performance con-
sidering the competition."
Levy, the red-headed side-
horseman from Winnetka, Ill.,
slipped after he had completed
the toughest part of his routine
in the Midwest Open. He is an-
other sophomore who should earn
a number of points for the Wol-
verines before the close of the

er with Lascari, Hyman, and Levy

mores capable of competing on
any team in the country.
LOS ANGELES (RP)-North Car-
olina State's Roman Gabriel, the
passing ace Los Angeles had in
mind when it traded away star
end Del Shofner, announced yes-
terday he had signed with the
Rams of the National Football
Gabriel was the Rams' No. 1
pick in the recent NFL draft.
They had second choice in the
draft as a result of a controversial
deal that had sent Shofner to the
New York Giants.
The Giants, who had obtained
Minnesota's No. 1 draft choice
'last summer in exchange for vet-
eran quarterback George Shaw,
turned the Vikings' pick over to
Los Angeles for Shofner.

OUT-TIP THURMOND?-Michigan center John Harris easily wins the opening jump here against
Denver. Tonight he will be thoroughly tested as he will be pitted against Bowling Green's 6'11" center,
Nate Thurmond. The above play, with Harris tipping to Tom Cole on left, who in turn passes off to
one of the guards who lays it up, has been successful several times this season.
