Layoff Hurts Shooting Eye as 'M' Loses Fou

By DAVE GOOD

Michigan's cagers made a one-
for-one swap with the trainer's
table Wednesday night and went
away looking as if they had lost
their best friend.
They nearly did. Sophomore
center Bill Buntin, the team's lead-
ing scorer and rebounder, wrench-
ed his right knee in a collision
under the basket in an 83-70 loss
to Detroit and missed practice yes-
terday.
Buntin was in.good spirits after
the game, however, and hoped to
be ready to face Michigan State
in a regionally televised game from
East Lansing at 4:30 p.m. tomor-
row.
Losing Streak
Coach Dave Strack's Wolverines,
looking heavy-legged after a week's
layoff at the semester break, shot
a wretched 28 per cent against
Detroit and dropped their third
straight game and their fourth in
fourteen starts. The Titans are
9-9.
Strack had no sooner pronounc-
ed ailing forward John Harris fit
to start his first game in more
than a month than Buntin replac-
ed him on the injured list.
Old Springs Back
Playing with his left ankle taped
lightly, Harris jumped well enough
to lead both teams with 17 re-
bounds, including 12 in the second
half. His 15 points tied him with
guard Bob Cantrell in the runner-
up spot for Michigan..

Buntin led Michigan with 16
points despite being boxed repeat-
edly away from the basket by De-
troit's 6'5" junior forward-center
Dick Dzik, and whoever else hap-
pened to be nearby.
Dzik, one of only four upper-
classmen on the Titans' 15-man
squad, led both teams with 23
points, hitting on 9 of 16 attempts
from the floor. He also outre-
bound the 6'7", 232-lb. Buntin, 13-
12.

Gets Clobbered
With Michigan down, 69-60, and
7:15 left in the game, Buntin hook-
ed short and then collided with
Harris, who was shoved in aI
scramble under the basket. Buntin
crumpled to the floor as Detroit
cleared the boards and raced the,
ball downcourt.
While Detroit co-captain Harri-
son Munson was netting a jump
shot, his only points of the game,
Michigan trainer Jim Hunt jump-
ed off the bench to check Buntin,
lying motionless at the other end
of the court.
Buntin limped off the floor aft-
er several minutes and took Michi-
gan's chances with him. Detroit'
went into a semi-stall and never
was in trouble afterward.{
Come Close Once
Minutes before Buntin went off,
Michigan had gathered itself for'
its only challenge of the game,
closing a 16-point gap to one
point, 59-58, on a jump shot by
Harris with 9:5 Sleft.
The major impetus was a three-
minute spurt during which the
Wolverines outscored the Titans,
12-0, with help from Buntin, Can-
trell and Harris.
Detroit quickly regained its
poise, however, and boosted its
lead back up to the same 13-point
margin it held almost from the
start. The Titans were presented
with a 14-1lead when the Wolver-
ines managed to go nearly six
minutes without a field goal. Can-
trell finally hit a jumper with 5:43
gone.
Rebounds, Anyway
Buntin, Harris and Captain Tom
Cole gave the Wolverines a 7 1-44

Taped Hopes
Yesterday, Dave Strack watched his charges as they diligen
prepared for Michigan State's full court and zone defenses, and,
usual, shouted words of encouragement or grimaced and kicked t
floor when an assignment was missed, but his thoughts were prc
ably wandering. Nobody would have blamed him if they were,
up in the dressing room trainer Jim Hunt was busy trying to tape
Michigan's Big Ten basketball hopes.

-Daly-Ed Langs
TIED UP-Sophomore Larry Tregoning effectively bottles up
Detroit's Dick Dzik (50) in Wednesday night's 83-70 loss to the
Titans. Forming their own version of a blockade around Dzik
are Wolverines John Harris (33), George Pomey (44), and Tom
Cole (31).

advantage in rebounding, but the
team's shooting (Strack disgusted-
ly called it a "sparkling" 28.4 per
cent) more than made up for it.
The Titans, normally not a hot-
shooting team, burned Michigan
with 47.8 per cent in this one.
thanks to a Michigan defense
which Strack referred to variously
as "a step slow," "half-speed" and
"rotten."
Strack commented afterwards
that the Titans, "played a pretty
strong game," but he conceded,
"we weren't as ready to play as
we should have been. We Just
weren't sharp."

HOWARD SPEAKS:
Strike Zone
Rule Change
Discussed
NEW YORK (m--As a catch-
er and as a hitter, Elston Howardf
has mixed feelings regarding the
new high strike rule, raising the
height from the armpits to the
shoulders.
"They're helping the pitchers,
sure," said the tall, strong catch-
er of the champion New York
Yankees. "Maybe they need help.
Okay. Buthow many .300 hitters
were there in the American
League last year? Nine, that's all.
So who needs help most?"
The 32-year-old Howard wasn't
one of the nine. The 6-foot-2, 204-
pounder fell off in batting from his
high of .348 in 1961 to .279 last
year.
But while his average dipped
considerably, his runs batted in
production soared from the 77 of
1961 to 91 in 1962, making him the
top man among major league
catchers in RBI.
"Personally the high strike zone
won't bother me," said Howard.
Thursday. "I'm a high ball hitter
myself and the ball doesn't have
to be in the strike zone. And it
may help some of our pitchers es-
pecially Ralph Terry, Jim Bouton
and Stan Williams. We got
Williams from the Dodgers for
Moose Skowron and I hear Stan
throws the high, hard one.
"As for me, I'm looking for-
ward to getting back in the .300
class. I think I would have made
it again last year except for that
wrist injury I had. I had strained
ligaments of my left wrist for
about 21/2 months. At times I
could hardly grip the bat.
"But right now I feel great.'The
wrist is strong and doesn't bother
me a bit. I feel I'm ready for an-
other big year. The club looks real
solid and I think we can go all the
way again.

Naturally it was Bill Buntin Hunt was working on. Buntin
had been out on the court earlier, but after trotting around with
much pain he was sent back upstairs by Strack. The diagnosis
is a pulled muscle in the back of the knee, and Hunt's job is to
tape the knee in such a way as to free the big sophomore from
pain. If anybody can return Buntin to service, Hunt is the man,
but Strack is not optimistic.
"To tell you the truth, I'm not counting on him," Strack sadly
remarked. "Even if he plays, it will probably be only at 75 per cent.
The knee hurts him. How much, only he can say. You can never tell
about a knee injury. He might come back tomorrow, or he might be
out a long time."
Bump* Understands ..
Up in the athletic administration building Bump Elliott must
have been nodding his head understandingly. He's had experience with
these matters before, whereas Strack is a novice.
Buntin's injury was of a fluke variety. Detroit was collaps-
ing three men around him all night, but on this instance he shook
free long enough to try a hook shot. In the process of completing
the shot a crowd gathered and John Harris fell against the front
of Buntin's knee. Both fell to the court and Buntin rolled in
agony while Detroit was scoring a basket at the other end.
Strack stood over his fallen star with a blank expression on his
face, and nobody would have faulted if he -would have dropped down
and rolled in agony himself.
A Sad Evening...
It certainly served as- a clincher to an already ruined evening
for Strack. And in case you were wondering about that game, Detroit
deserved to win. They won, as only a team which is outrebounded 71-
44 and outshot 95-69 can win, by not making any mistakes. The
Titans, who have known better days, manhandled Michigan's defense
and did a superb job of keeping Michigan away from the offensive
boards. Of course, it didn't hurt a bit that they shot 48 per cent from
the field, while Michgan managed only 28 per cent.
"We were a bad team and bad teams don't win," Strack said after
the affair.
"We just couldn't buy a basket," Tom Cole said, staring at his
own 3-13 performance.
True, the offense was hurting, but the contest also showed no-
ticeable defensive problems that Strack will have to iron out. Detroit
played its two forwards far out, pulling.Harris and Cole away from
