Strack, whose team's first outing
since the semester break was Wed-
nesday night's game with Detroit,
boasts the Big Ten's top rebound-
er, 6'7" sophomore center Bil Bun-

averaging 15.5 rebounds and 25.8
points in conference action.
Harris Hampered
John Harris, hampered by a sore
ankle for the past month, is ex-
pected to be back in nearly top
shape against the E artans to give
added punch to Michigan's re-
bounding.
Harris, a 6'5" forward, hurt an

in games since then.
Captain Tom Cole, 6'7", rounds

George Pomey (6'4") and Larry

CONFERENCE WRAP-UP:
Big Ten Confused
As Illini Still Lead

By LLOYD GRAFF
The course of a Big Ten basket-
ball season, like its predecessor in
the fall, football, is about as pre-
dictable as the flight of a leaky
balloon.
Scarcely a Monday or a Satur-
day elapses without a major upset
or at least a mighty big scare. One
need only peer at the confused
standings to see some of the
strange twists and turns of the
infant season. The only team to
match its reputation has been
Illinois, currently taking a siesta
for semester break, with a 4-0
record.
The Illini have had their share
of traumas this year includ-
ing the already legendary "wild
pitch" heaved by Bob Starnes to
defeat the stunned Wildcats of
Northwestern.
Tough Luck!
The Wildcats currently vying
for the lead in the to gh t-lck
teamsof the year category, hve
taken three of their four confer-
ence losses on the chin by a total
of seven points.
Indiana clutches the second
place spot with a 3-0 record,
thanks to victories by margins al-
most as slim as Jimmy Ryl's
waistline. After laying off ri
exams the Hoosiers snuck by Pur-
due 74-73. Purdue has added big
Bill Jones, a 6'8" sophomore wcho
just regained his eligibility. The
Boilermakers are mired in the
cellar, but Jones and guard Mel
Garland are due to engineĀ°.r some
victories.
Ohio State, Minnesota, and
Michigan State share third plane.
The Buckeyes, led by scoring ace
Gary Bradds, have fallen to Il-
linois and Iowa while amassing
three victories, including the
Michigan game. Their home court
winning streak gives them a great

psychological advantage at
John's arena in Columous,
they have appeared to be
another visiting team whent
hit the road.

Rugged, Solid
Minnesota has shown the league
a rugged front line and solid
guards in Bob Bateman and Terry
Kunze, Michigan's murderer. The
Gophers dropped a game at Ohio
State 78-76 and were tripped in
Minneapolis bythe surprising
Spartans from Michigan State.
The Spartans, disregarded as
title contenders at the outset of
the season, seemed to have jelled
as a team despite lack of height.
The acquisition of Ted Williams
at center and the steady play of
Pete Gent, Marcus Sanders, and
Bill Berry has made MSU a worthy
opponent for any Big Ten team.
Michigan journeys to East Lan-
sing tomorrow afternoon in an
attempt to puncture the rapidly
expanding bubble of Spartan bas-
ketball. For the Wolverines it will
be the first conference encounter
after final exams.
Bill Buntin, third in Big Ten
scoring average with 25.8 per
game, leads Michigan's assault.
Coach Dave Strack expects that
John Harris' ankle will be suf-
ficiently healed to allow him to
go all out. With Harris back in
the starting lineup Strack will
have the same group which\ pro-
pelled the Wolverines to eight
wins in their first nine starts.
