basketball will have a new Look in
the American Basketball League,
which starts operations in the fall.
"We plan' to pain t an area 25
feet in front of the baskets and a
field goal from behind it will be
worth three points. This should be
as, interesting as a home run in
baseball. It will get the good, little
man in 'position to shoot- and the
fans will see the ball going through
the air and swishing through the
hoop," said acting commissioner
Abe Saperstein;.

By FRED STEINHARDT
Southern California is expect-
ed to. ward off a Michigan chal-
lenge and keep its title at the
NCAA swimming championships
which begin Wednesday at Seat-
tle, .
Nearly all of the stars .who led
the Trojans to the 1960 crown are
back, including Lance Larson,
Chuck Bittick, Dennis Rounsa-
velle, Murray Rose, and Gary To-
bian. Powerful Indiana, the Big
Ten champs who might have posed

a serious threat, will not com-
pete. The Hoosiers are serving a
four year probation because of
football recruiting violations.
Michigan should have no trou-
ble taking second place and could
make a run for top money if
everything goes right at once.
"Yale, Ohio State, and possibly
Harvard should fight it out for
t h ird," commented Michigan
coach, Gus Stager. "Michigan
State could also be in contention.
Ohio State should get points
from divers Lou Vitucci, Tom
Gompf, and Juan Botella. Vitucci
won the one and three meter Big
Ten titles.
The 12 man Michigan contin-
gent includes Ron Clark and Dick
Nelson, breaststroke, Dave Gil-
landers, butterfly, Alex Gaxiola
and Fred Wolf, backstroke, Frank
Legacki, Bill Darnton, Warren
Uhler, John Dumont, Win Pen-

dleton, and Steve Thrasher, free-
style, and Bob Webster, diving,
'M' Titles?
Clark (200-yd. breaststroke),
Nelson (100-yd. breasastroke),
and Gillanders (100 and 200-yd.
butterfly) must be rated as favor-
ites to win at their specialties,
although no one isreally ashoo-
in hat an NCAA meet.
Southern Cal should get firsts
from Chuck Bittick in both 100
and 200-yd. backstroke, -Rose in
the 440-yd. and 1,500-meter free-
style events, and possibly Rounsa-
velle or Larson in the 200-yd. in-
dividual medley.
The sprints, relays, and diving
events are all tossups. The Wol-'
verines would have to win almost
all of them if they were to over-
come Southern Cal.
Anybody's Race
The 50, 100, and 220-yd,. free-
style races are all wide open.;

Bruce Hunter of Harvard is the
defending champ in the 50 and
has done under :49.0 in the 100.
Southern Illinois' Ray Padovan
has recorded a phenomenal :47.9
in the 100 and :21.6 in the 50.
Steve Jackman, the Minnesota
Streak who :zoomed to two Big
Ten titles could do it again. His
:21.4 in the 50 is the fastest ever
and he also did a :48.3 in 100.
Michigan's prime sprint con-
tender will be Captain Frank Le-
gacki who won the N'CAA 100-yd.
freestyle race as a sophomore two
years ago. A great competitor, Le-
gacki thrashed to a :47.6 100
freestyle anchor leg in the free-
style relay finals at the recent
Big Ten championships.
The 220 should be a battle be-
tween Rose, Tom Winters and Bill
House of USC, Darnton, and Jim
Spreitzer of Illinois.

Tobian won the Olympic three
meter diving event and will be
tough to beat in that event. But
Gompf, Webster, Botella, or Vi-
tucci are all capable enough
should Tobian falter. The same
five should battle it out on the
one 'meter board,
Harvard's freestyle relay team
has been clocked at 3: 17.7 and,
must be favored to win, at least
on time. Michigan and Michigan
St. are potentially strong challen-
gers. Legacki, Thrasher, Darnton,
and Dumont will probably make
up the Wolverine quartet.
In the medley relay, the team
of Gaxiola, Nelson, Gillanders,
and either Thrasher or Legacki
will have to fight off a strong
Michigan State foursome.
Points are awarded for the first
six places. Individual events run
7-5-4-3-2-1 and relays 14-12-10-
8-6-4.

By DAVE KIMBALL
College basketball is nearing its
1960-61 climax with the NCAA and
NIT Tournaments -winding up
Saturday, but Michigan's Wolver-
ines have already finished in the
Big Ten cellar as they did last
year.
Winning only two of 14 out-
ings, the Wolverines were out, of
the basement only once during
the course of the entire season,
and then for only a few brief
days after their victory over MSU
at Yost Field House.
Yet, despite Michigan's last-
place finishes the past two years
and the loss of Captain John Tid-
well, who practically rewrote the
records books during his three year
tenure, Coach Daye Strack is
fairly optimistic about next year's
prospects.
At the conclusion of every ath-
letic season, whether it concern
a major or minor sport,ithere
will always be heard the familiar
cry, "Wait 'till next, year! "
Strack's enthusiasm hasn't quite
reached those proportions yet, but
the yoi"thful mentor who Just fi-
ished his first season certainly
isn't going to run and hide, or
even shudder, at the prospects of
playing a season without the scor-
ing punch of the talented Tidwell.
Only two of this year's team
members are seniors (reserve
Rich Donley joins most-valuable-
player Tidwell in that category)
and in addition to having six one-
time starters returning, Strack
will have a host of talented sopho-
mores (now freshmen) and trans-
fers to choose from.
Transfer Prospects
It's the newer additions to the
varsity squad that are making
Strack so enthusiastic. Referring
specifically to "half a dozen or so"
newcomers, Strack xemarked re-
cently, "We'llbe deeper next year,
1 t

and will have better overall
speed."
Three transfers will be among
those counted on by Strack to
bolster the team's offensive and
reboundingstrength next year.
They are 6'4" John Oosterbaan
(no relation to Benny Ooster-'
baan, . former Wolverine football
coach), 6'6" John Harris, and 6'
Danny Hoag.
Oosterbaan appears to be the
standout of the trio. Hailing from.
Kalamazoo and transferring to
Michigan from Hope College,
Oosterbaan is a determined, eager
youngster possessed with a lot of
ability. "He could have started
this year," Tom Jorgenson, the
Wolverine Frosh coach, said re-
cently.
Harris, a transfer from Alcorn
College in Mississippi, is known
primarily for his rebounding abil-
ity. Assistant coach Jim Skala of
the Negro forward-center said
that he "needs only to add varie-
ty to his shooting" to become a
regular with the Wolverines. Har-
ris' best shot now is the, jump-
shot.
Hoag came to Michigan. from
Idaho, where he played under
Strack, then in his freshman
year as a head coach. Although.
not as highly rated as Ooster-
baan or Harris, Hoag is being
counted on to add depth to the
1961-62 squad and should im-
prove with experience.'

Jorgenson's '61 hreshman squad,
considered better than average;
should produce several good var-
sity candidates. Most prominent
are a pair of small but speedy
guards, 5'10'' Doug Herner from
Lansing Sexton's, two time Mich-
igan Class A champs and 5'10"
fireball's Bob Cantrell, who hails
from Washington High in East
Chicago, Ind. Both are good
shooters who will make the guard
spots the deepest position on the
team, with first-stringer Captain-
elect; Jon Hall and sixth-man
Steve Schoenherr returning.
Other freshmen with. a chance
to , stick with the varsity next
year include 6'4", 210-lb. Barry
Andrews, 6'3" Bob Yearout, 6'1"
Hiram Jackson, and 6'6" Doug
Greenwold. Yearout and Jackson
are out-of-staters, coming from
Cincinnati and from Springfield,
Ill., respectively. Andrews and
Greenwold hail from Escanaba and
Grand Rapids, respectively. All
are front-line men but Jackson,
who is converting to guard from
his high school pivotman days,
adding more backcourt depth.
Add tthat list the name of
Don Petroff, who became schol-
astically ineligible after compiling
a 10.5 scoring average in 15 1960-
61 games and you can see why
Strack is optimistic about Michi-
gan climbing up the Big Ten lad-
der next year.

ball last night, and will meet
Gomberg in the first place finals.
tomorrow night.
The men from Reeves had a
comfortable lead at the end of
the first half, 19-9, mainly on the
strength of Ron Tate's ball steal-
ing and fast breaks and of Brian
Schultz's long shots. Schultz scor-
ed eight and Tate seven in the
half.

Kelsey dominated the second
half, scoring 17 points to Reeves'
ten, but it wasn't enough.
With an average height two
inches shorter than their oppon-
ents, the Reeves team still man-
aged to pull down twelve rebounds
to Kelsey's six. However, the
game was won on the foul shoot-
ing. The three-point difference
came' from Reeves' making nine
of twelve, while Kelsey made but
six of ten,
