BIG TEN RUNNER-UP:
M' Trackmen Place Second

By LLOYD GRAFF
Tom Cole-and John Harris sup-
plied the crucial difference in
Michigan's thrilling upset of sixth-
ranked Illinois yesterday before
an ecstatic throng of 9,400 at Yost
Field House, 84-81.
Harris and Cole, playing their
last Big Ten game before a home
crowd, scored 21 and 22 points
and -collected 15 and 16 rebounds
respectively. But while the two
forwards played inspired ball the
entire game, the game winning
thrust came from Bill Buntin.
Scoring Rampage
The acclaimed sophomore went
on a rampage in the second half
scoring 14 consecutive points for
Michigan. The splurge brought the
Wolverines from a 53-52 deficit to
a 66-58 lead. Buntin finished with
27 points, high for the team.
Michigan doggedly maintained the
lead despite the determined re-
sistance of Illinois and Dave
Downey. The Fighting Illini were
able to cut the lead to one point
with nine seconds remaining but

a last second lay-up by Larry
Tregoning clinched the final out-
come.
The moment of truth for the
Blue came when Buntin fouled out
with 3:10 left, with the score
standing 76-70. Michigan went in-
to a semi-stall looking only for a
cripple or a foul. They were oblig-
ed with both.
Coach Dave Strack remarked
after the game that the "big dif-
ference was the play of Harris.
This was his best game since
Houston. He came through with
the critical baskets." Strack also
praised Cole's aggressive play
against his old high school op-
ponent Dave Downey, though the
Illinois shotmaker did notch 29
points, tops an the game.
The contest started with a fast
scoring spree and then slackened
off for the rest of the first half.
Bill Burwell successfully checked
Buntin's outside shot holding him
to just seven points in the stanza,
'but Harris and Cole made up for
it, meshing 15 and 11 points out
of Michigan's total of 39.

Illinois resorted to the twin
totem offense after ten minutes
had elapsed, as Skip Thoren en-
tered the game. The Wolverines
immediately went into a zone de-
fense for the first time this sea-
son. It was probably the last. The
Illini picked up two ridiculously
easy baskets as the Michigan zone
neglected to cover one side of the
court.
Strack hastily called time out
and abandoned the unsuccessful
zone putting Harris on Thoren
man to man. He commented after-
wards in a jubilant locker room
that "we tried to slip into a zone
but we just didn't handle it right.
I guess we just aren't a zoning
team."
Cantrell Guards
Bob Cantrell was Small's con-
tinual companion throughout the
game, holding the Illinois guard
to a bare seven points, 13 shy of
his average. Michigan as a team
played dilligent defense and held
the . Illini's vaunted race horse
offense well in barness. Illinois
scored just two buckets on fast
breaks one of which was neutral-
ized by a charging foul. In the
running department Michigan ac-
tually faired better than the run-
and-shoot Illini, scoring on eight
fast breaks.
The Wolverines maintained their
conference lead in rebounding,
garnering 55 to 49 for Illinois.
Michigan scored numerous times
by scavenging the garbage com-
ing off the rim and stuffing it
back in.
Illinois dropped out of a first
place tie with Ohio State due to its
loss and State's 95-75 victory over
Purdue. Michigan moved into a
fourth place tie with Indiana,
Monday night's opponent.
Last Home Game

-Daily-Bruce Taylor
BIG BILL BUNTIN-Michigan's strong ceniter, Bill Buntin, shows
his power by driving through the Illinois defense to put in an easy
lay-up. Illini players are Bill Small (53), Dave Downey (44), and
Bill Burwell (25), and Bob Starnes (44). Michigan's Tom Cole
(31) and Jorn Harris (behind Cole) stand by.
Sparkling Defense Marks
'Greatest Game of Year'

(Continued from Page 1)
Iowa's Hollingsworth. The Ameri-
can indoor 440 record is 47.2.
Earlier in the meet, Michigan
was involved in another Big Ten
record and this one turned oat to
be more pleasant for the Wolver-
ines. The record was set by Cap-
tain Charlie Aquino who toured
1000 yards in 2:09.9. Aquino was
the defending champion in this
event. After playing around with
the field for the first 600 yards,
he stretched out a 15 lard lead
which he held all the way.
Themother records broken in the
meet came' in the high jump and
the 880-yd. run. Bill Holden of
Wisconsin cleared the hign jump
bar at 6'10" to break the oi mark
of 6'8%/$". Bill Frazier of Iowa
showed the 880 field how it is done
as he ran a 1:51.8 half-mile to
break the old mark of 1:52.6.
The record was previously held by
Michigan's 1962 Captain Ergas
Leps.
Ted Kelly, running in the 880
for Michigan, clocked a 1:53.1.
This is usually good enough to
win but this time was only good
enough for a third place. Other
records which were tied came in
the 70-yd. low hurdles and in the
60-yd. dash.
Smith Wins Lows
Running the lows for Wisconsin,
which was missing last year's win-
ner in this event Larry Howard
because of a leg injury, was Bill
Smith. Smith showed that he
didn't have to take a back seat to
anyone on the Wisconsin team by
clocking a.:07.8 to tie the existing
record.
Bob Moreland of Michigan State
earned himself the title of "Mr.
Consistency" with his current rec-
ord tying pattern. Running in the
prelims, the semi-finals, and the
finals of the 60-yd. dash, More-
land was clocked each time in
:06.1. This time ties the existing
record first set in 1935 by Jesse
Owens and equaled twice since.

The meet, for the Michiganl
track team and Coach Don Can-
ham, needless to say was a dis-
appointment. But this was one of
those meets in which every man
on the squad was giving every
ounce of his energy all the time.

By MIKE BLOCK
"It was our best game of the
year."
Dave Strack said it on his 40th
birthday, and while such a state-
ment may not come as shocking to
someone who saw Michigan defeat
sixth-ranked Illinois, 84-81, it
sums up the situation perfectly.
The Wolverines. didn't exactly
annihilate the. Illini, but they left
no doubt as to who was the best
team on the floor yesterday. Al-
though thei' dshootingpercentage,
both in field goals and in free
throws, wasn't spectacular, they
outplayed Illinois in virtually
every other department - includ-
ing, apparently, desire.
Illini Toughest
For it was Michigan, and not
the men from the Land of Lincoln,
who looked like the team fighting
for the Big Ten basketball cham-
pionship. Nevertheless, it was the
consensus among Wolverine play-
ers and coaches that Illinois was
the best aggregation they've run
into this year, including Ohio
State. All of which goes to show
that the Wolverines were a vastly
superior team to the one which
dropped two games to the Buck-
eyes earlier this year.
Even though the Wolverines
showed plenty of offensive spark,
especially via the layup, it was
their defensive prowess which kept
them above water. Illinois' 81
points was nine below its Big Ten
average of 90, and the difference
was mainly due to Bob Cantrell's
superb coverage of . Illini guard
Bill Small.
Clings Like Cloth
Small had been averaging al-
most 18 points per game, but that
didn't. seem to concern Cantrell,
who clung to him all afternoon
like a Siamese twin, and limited
him to a paltry seven. It wasn't
that Small was missing his shots-
but that Cantrell was harassing
him to the extent that the senior
hot shot simply couldn't get clear
to take a pass.
Then there was the case of the
abortive t w i n totem offense.
Assistant coach Jim Skala put it
aptly after the game when he
commented, "Illinois depends on
the two center offense when their
regular one doesn't work. But
when that gets fouled up, they're
stuck, and have to go back to the
original one, which they abandon-
ed in the first place."
Towers Topple
Thus, when Skip Thoren enter-
ed the stage to pair up with fel-
low skyscraper Bill Burwell mid-
way through the first half, Mich-
igan responded by jumping out to
a six-point lead. Despite their
height disadvantage, the members

of the Wolverine front line, Bill
Buntin, Tom Cole and John Har-
ris, were able to bottle up Thoren
completely, while Burwell was re-
legated to shooting jumpers over
their heads rather than layups.
Burwell still played a respect-.
able game (Strack remarked that
he was "surprisingly good offens-
ively"), but Thoren had a meager
two points and fouled out ignom-
iniously with 7:22 to go in the
game. Furthermore, the Illini of-
fense degenerated after a while
into one of deliberate free -lanc-
ing, with little in the way of pass-
and-cut patterns Michigan used so
effectively.
Leading the charge for Illinois
was one Dave Downey, who dis-
played a remarkable assortment
of moves designed to get him into
the proper position to use his soft
touch. While Cole didn't exactly
contain his old high school rival,
he played almost on a par with
him, scoring just seven fewer
points, and outrebounding him
16-12.
"He'll make a good pro guard
someday," said Cole of Downey.
But Cole and Harris, responding
to the huge crowd's support of a
senior in his last home game with
probably the best game either has
played, were the pros yesterday
afternoon.

Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan
State rooters must be content with
Mike Wood's record - shattering
performance in the 200-yd. free-
style as better balance earned the
Wolverine tankers a 55-50 victory.
Wood closed out his home career
in spectacular fashion, a 1:46.4
time, and broke five of his own
records and pending records by
over two seconds. The Michigan
State pool, varsity, and dual meet
standards fell, as did the pending
Big Ten and NCAA marks.
Misses Record
Although the time was also un-
der the listed American record, it
cannot be considered because a
hand touch at each turn is re-
quired. Under a new NCAA rule
this year, a hand touch is un-
necessary in collegiate meets.
Wood's splits were 23.1 'nd 49.1
at 50 and 100-yds., giving him a
phenominal start toward his rec-

ord. He also took the 100-yd. free-
style wth a 48.4 mark and an-
chored the victorious freestyle
relay team.
As expected, the Spartans dom-
inated all the sprints, but the only
other event they could take was
the individual medley.
Second for Riutta
Wolverines Jim Riutta and Tom
Burns swam very strong races in
the 50 but had to settle for second
and third at 22.5 and 22.8 as MSU's
Jeff Mattson picked up a couple of
feet on the turn to whiz home in
22.1.
Mattson pushed Ed Bartsch to
his second consecutive sub-two
minute time in the backstroke in
a real cliff-hanger. Bartsch trail-
ed through the first half of the
race before rallying to go ahead
after 150 yards. He finished in
1:59.9 and handed Mattson only
his second loss of the year despite
setting a State varsity record of
2:01.8.

In the 500-yd. freestyle Roy
Burry withstood a late rush by
Dick Gretzinger for the narrowest
of victories, 5:11.0 to 5:11.1. Tom
Dudley, who finished third, took
an early lead and held it till late
in the race. Burry crept by him,
as did Gretzinger, with about 100
yards to go. Gretzinger pulled even
in the last two laps and bettered
his own previous best by over four
seconds but was still out-touched
by Burry.
