THE MICHIGAN DAILY WEDNESDA
AY, JANUARY I
eweomers Key to 'M' Cagers' Success
By JOE APPELT
Perhaps the answer to why the
Michigan basketball fortunes have
taken on a bright aspect after
turning in a good game against
Ohio State and upsetting Iowa
Monday night can be attributed
to the improved play of the new-
comers in this year's lineup.
Monday night the Wolverines
did not succumb to the tendency
to fade under the pressure of a
close game, especially in the last
few minutes. This happened
against South Carolina and Port-
land. The newcomer's improved
individual play and ability to work
together better averted this.
Cantrell Settles Down
Case in point is sophomore Bob
Cantrell. Ineffective in his first
games, he has now settled down
to consistent and effective play.
Coach Dave Strack feels this is due
to the fact that, "He has gained
a lot of valuable game experience
and does not feel the pressure as
much as in those earlier games."
Cantrell turned in his finest
game against Ohio State in lead-
ing the Wolverine scoring with 17
points. Monday night the home
town fans saw him play for the
first 'time since before Christmas
and from the crowd reaction, he
,And his 14 points were well re-
ceived. His defensive work was
Herner Draws Praise
Doug Herner, who came off the
bench in the closing minutes Mon-
day night to score two important
baskets drew praise from Strack.
"I was very pleased with his per-
formance," he said.

out against Iowa, contributed his
usual good defensive game. He

in the lineup all year, ironically
had one of his coldest nights in the
scoring department. He still

key shots, including the basket

Decrease in Errors
The decrease in thernumber of
errors committed in a game have
been evident in the last two games.
Against Ohio State they com-
mitted only 11 errors, the same
number as the Bucks. It was the
same story with Iowa. "Fewer
than ten mistakes is considered
good and this is hard to do."
Not a Newcomer
One member who is not a new-
comer is Tom Cole, who sank the
winning free throw that won the
game Monday night. Cole has been
particularly hot from the free
throw line lately. He made seven
for seven against Illinois and was
four for four against Iowa. In the
game with the Hawkeyes he also
