Scoring Record

DENVER IN FIRST:
WCHA Nears End of Season

n

By DAVE GOOD
Billy Buntin, who was passed off
s a "green sophomore" when he
rst strode onto the basketball.
)Urt last December, today stands
ily 60 points away from John
idwell's single-season scoring
,cord.
With games to play against I1-
aois, Indiana and Wisconsin,
untin has already jacked his
oint total up to 460 points to tie
im with M. C. Burton for second
ace on Michigan's all-time list..
He leads the Wolverines with it
.9 scoring average over 21 games
na at this rate will top Tidwell's
959-60 performance of 520 points
)metime during the Wisconsin
ame on the road a week from
aturday.
Fourth in Big Ten
Buntin can also overtake Burton
s Michigan's best scorer during a
ig Ten season. Right now he
inks fourth in the conference
ith a 23.2 average and needs only
Zpoints to, pass Burton's 316
oints scored in the 1958-59 sea-
)n.
Already he is the most prolific
phomore scorer Michigan has
it on the court. He passed Tid-
ell's- 425-point mark two games
,o against Purdue.
Coach Dave Strack is more con-
rned about winning his last three
3.mes than anything else, how-
er. "We're not going to feature
ill just to break a record, but we
ill feature scoring and so far Bill
as been our big man," he explain-
s.
One of the Few
With Buntin's help, Strack
ould like to see Michigan take
le last three and finish as high
third with a 9-5 record. Now
e Wolverines are 6-5 in the Big
en and 14-7 over-all for only the
cond winning season since the
iampionship year of 1947-48.
"It would be a remarkable thing;
we could win these last three,
it this team has done some re-
arkable things," Strack com-

harder than any other team's from
here on in, but it's up to us. We
can't plan on anybody helping us."
Strack will have his team look-
ing for Illinois to play 6'8" Billy
Burwell and 6'10" Skip Thoren in
a double post position near the
baseline when the two teams clash

The Illini are ranked sixth na-
tionally and are tied with Ohio
State for the Big Ten lead now.
"It's definitely within the realm
of possibility that we can beat1
them," Strack said. "We've got to
win the backboard duel, even
though they're bigger than we
are."

Buntin, at 6'7" and 232 lbs., cur-
rently leads the Big Ten in re-
bounding with 174 in 11 games but
would need 75 to catch Burton's
school record of 249 in the con-
ference. As a team, Michigan leads.
the conference with an average of
47 a game.
The only other Wolverine besides
Buntin in the top 25 scorers in
the conference is Tom Cole, aver-
aging 15.2 points in 19th place.
Cole also ranks in the top 10 re-
bounders with 122. .
For the season, Cole is averaging
12.6 points, followed by Bob Can-
trell (11.4), John Harris (8.8) and
Doug Herner (7.6).

Michigan Gymnasts
To Stage Exhibition

By STAN KUKLA
Three of four teams are assured
play-off positions as the Western
Collegiate Hockey Association en-
ters the final weekend of regular
season action.
Only fourth place Michigan Tech
has to worry about making the
play-offs. The Huskies play fifth-
place Colorado College tomorrow
and Saturday. A double win by the
Tigers would give them an 8-8-0
record and the double loss by
Michigan Tech would give them a
9-9-2 record. Since the WCHA
standings are figured on percent-
age points, both teams would be at
.500 and thus tied for fourth, nec-
essitating a play-off between the
teams.
Pioneers Lead
Denver is currently leading the
league with a .667 per cent on 12
wins and six losses. However, the
Pioneers finished their league
schedule last weekend.
North Dakota is right on the
heels of the Denver squad with a
.656 per cent on a 10-5-1 record.
The Sioux meet Michigan this
weekend and a double win for the
Grand Forks group would mean
first place on a .694 per cent.
Minnesota, like Denver and
North Dakota, is assured of being
in the play-offs but its final posi-
tion in the league, again like Den-
ver and North Dakota, is still in
doubt. A double loss by the Goph-
ers, combined with a double win
by Michigan Tech, would drop
them into fourth.
Only two teams are firmly en-
sconced in their positions-Mich-
igan and Michigan State. Neither

have a breath of a chance of mak-
ing the playoffs. State is sixth and
Michigan is holding up the rest of
the league.
Actually it is a matter of strate-
gy to decide in which position to
finish, since the first place team
hosts the fourth place team for a
two-game, total--goal series. The
second team hosts the third. Then
the two winners meet in a single
championship game.
Strategems
Louis Nanne of Minnesota tight-
ened his grip on the scoring race
with a goal and two. assists last
weekend. Nanne now has 27 points
on nine goals and 18 assists.

Wayne Kartusch is still leading

minutes.
WCHA

By MIKE BLOCK
The dual meet season over,
Michigan's gymnastics team won't
see any official action until the
Big Ten Meet on March 8 and 9.
However, Wolverine fans have
one more chance to see the squad
in action. Tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.
in the Intramural Building, the
gymnasts will give an intrasquad
exhibition for their last home per-
formance until 1964.
Coach Newt Loken plans to split
the team up into its Canadian and
American members for scoring
purposes in the exhibition. Since
the Canadians will be in the mi-
nority, Loken has invited Wilhelm
Weiler, the top-ranking member of
Canada's gymnastics delegation to
the Pan-American Games, to help
them out.
Incidentally, Rich Montpetit,
former Michigan star, is second to
Weiler on that Pan-Am team.
TV Stars.
Loken also announced that his
men will be on regional television
(WJPK, Channel 2) between
halves of the Wisconsin-Michigan
State basketball game Saturday.
Game time is 4:30 p.m., with the
gym tape to go on about 5.
The Wolverines finished the
dual meet season undefeated in
six tries this year, their first per-

feet mark since 1956, when they
had a 7-0 mark. But that year they
finished second in the Big Ten
Meet to Illinois, so that next week
they'll be going for their first sea-
son with an unblemished dual
meet mark and a conference
crown.
The team will go to East Lans-
ing healthy, with the exception of
sophomore all-arounder Alex Frec-
ska, who missed the Minnesota
meet last Friday, and all of the
practices since, with a sore wrist.
Loken reports that Frecska still
hadn't improved as of yesterday
but expects him to be at full
strength for the meet next week.
Hard at Work
"He's been working awfully hard
this year," said Loken, "and since
he's heavier than most gymnasts,
his wrists naturally undergo a lot
of strain holding him up."
In sweeping to their undefeated
season, the Wolverines' widest
margin of victory was 51 points
against Indiana, and the narrow-
est was 27 against Illinois, the lat-
ter only because in several events,
Michigan gymnasts entered not to
count. Their average score was 70
points per meet, as opposed to
their opponents' 35.
Having defeated the two strong-
est teams besides themselves, Min-
nesota and Michigan State, by
identical 70-39 scores, the gym-
nasts don't foresee much trouble
in the Big Tens.

It's a battle right down to thej
wire between Illinois and Ohio
State for the Big Ten basketballj
championship, and Michigan's,
Wolverines are determined to put
the Buckeyes on top by virtue of
an upset over the Illini Saturday
at Yost Field House.
In the event that the Strackmen
are unable to do a job on the Illini
and both they and the Bucks fin-
ish their seasons with three vic-
tories, the first place tie would
permit the Illini to represent the
Big Ten in the NCAA tournament.
Illinois is given preference be-
cause they have not been the Big
Ten team in the national cham-
pionships since 1952, while Jerry
Lucas and the Buckeyes have a l
virtual monopoly, having won
three consecutive titles in the last;
three years.
Going into the final three tilts,
Ohio State's new-found All-Amer-
ican, Gary Bradds, leads the con-
ference in practically every indi-
vidual scoring category. He has the
most field goals, the most free
throws, the best shooting percent-1
age with .555, and leads in scor-
ing with 347 points for a 31.5 per
game average.
The other co-leader, Illinois,
sparkles in team accomplishments

rather than individual, as it leads
by a substantial margin in shoot-
ing percentage with .464 and in
free throw accuracy with .761, each
of which is better than a full
percentage point over Indiana
In addition, the Illini boast four
of their starting five in the top
23 scorers in the Big Ten. For-
ward Dave Downey leads Illini
scoring with a 21.5 average. Bill
Small, who is eighth in the scor-
ing race, hits for 19.1, Bill Burwell
has 15.2 and Bob Starnes, 13.7.
Michigan's hope for the future,
Bill Buntin, has moved up to
fourth in the scoring race based
on his 49-point weekend against
Northwestern and Iowa. Buntin
supports a 23.7 average, only half
a point behind third place shooter,
Indiana's steady forward, Tom
Bolyard. Buntin is far and away
the top rebounder with 174, 39
ahead of his nearest competitor,
Wisconsin's Jack Brens.
As a team, the Wolverines are
leading in rebounding with an
average of 47. In addition to Bun-
tin, Tom Cole is sixth in board-
strength with 122.
