Cage rs
March 9, 196.4 - Bob Purkhiser
and Dave Shellhase paced Purdue
to an 81-79 upset over the NCAA-
bound Michigan cagers in Ann
Arbor's Yost Field House today.
Oct. 17, 1964 - Sophomore Bob
Griese fired two touchdown passes
to lead Purdue to a 21-20 upset
win over Michigan before a parti-
san Wolverine crowd.
Today, these three athletes, as
if by fate, return to Yost Field
House for a regionally-televised

(4:30 p.m.) contest 'with the na-
tion's second-ranked and Big Ten-
leading Wolverines. Last year's
cage upset was over a Michigan
team with the same ranking and
the gridiron loss saw the fifth=
ranked Wolverines fall to the
Griese Returns
Since last fall, Griese has cast
aside =his football cleats but .is
still a quarterback. The versatile
sophomore has taken charge of

the Bolermaker attack and is
quarterback for cage mentor Ray
Eddy as he was for football coach
Jack Mollenkopf.
Griese injured his ankle in
Tuesday's 78-74 win over Notre
Dame and might not be at full
strength today. Dave Johnson,
6'3", will replace the Boilermaker
quarterback if his ankle still
bothers him. .
Purkhiser, the other Purdue
guard, was a big thorn in the side
of coach Dave Strack last March.
The 6'2" backcourt ace scored the.
two winning points from the free
throw iline and hit an impressive
11 of 16 from the field. Purkhiser's
26 points were supplemented by
the 25 from Shellhase.
Ninth in Big Ten
This season, Purkhiser has av-
eraged 18.6 points a game and his
18.2 Big Ten average is ninth best.
Bill Buntin ranks seventh in con-
ference scoring with an almost
identical 18.8 average.
Shellhase presently sports a
field goal average of 30.9, fourth
highest in the country. The 6'4"
junior was described by Strack
yesterday as a "player with few
faults. He is effective everywhere
-in the low post or at guard."
Shellhase is averaging 29 points a
game in Big Ten play; second only
to Cazzie Russell's 33. Russell,
however, has a 27-point average
for the season and ranks sixth in
the nation in scoring.
Russell Edges Shellhase
Russell won the initial battle
against Shellhase last March
when he pumped in 27 points. Last
year, they were talented sopho-
mores; this year, they are present-j
ly the twohighest scoring juniors
in the NCAA.
Purdue, which is 1-1 in Big Ten
competition and 8-4 overall, has
added strength under the boards
this year. Tom Niemeier, 6'9", a
high school All-American at
Evansville, Ind., where he prepped
with Griese, is the big difference.
Niemeier has grabbed 49 rem
bounds and scored 54 points in his
last five games and leads Purdue
scorers with a field goal percent-
age of .546. With center Bill Jones
standing 6'8", the Purdue front
line is taller than Michigan's.
Height Advantage
The Wolverines have a slight
team height advantage of about
three inches since they are start-



ing their tallest lineup of George
Pomey, Oliver Darden, Larry
Tregoning, Buntin and Russell.
Despite the fact that Michigan
has only a slight edge in average
rebounds per game, 54 to 52, Pur-
due might be in trouble defensive-
ly. The Boilermakers allowed
Notre Dame 98 shots Tuesday
night and were only saved by
Notre Dame's hitting on just 32.

NEW YORK (P)-Y. A. Tittle
retired as quarterback of the New
York Giants yesterday.
The famed passer revealed his
decision to Kyle Rote, former
backfield mate and now sports
director of radio station WNEW,
several hours before a press con.,
ference arranged by the club.
"Personally, I have a fear of
bedoming a mediocre football play-
er," the 38-year-old star said in
explanation, "perhaps I already

am a mediocre player.
"Not only did Gary Wood put
me on the bench," continued Tit-
tle, and then with a grin, "but
last fall he even asked permission
to date my daughter. When that
happens, I think it is time to quit
playing football."

Pont Leaves Yale Position,
Signs as Indiana Grid Coach

Pont made the jump from the
Ivy League to the Big Ten yes-
terday and said after accepting
the head football coaching job at
Indiana that "the pressures are
the ones you put on yourself."
Pont, a winner at Yale andtbe-
fore that at Miami of Ohio, took
the jpb of trying to lift Indiana
out of the depths and started
thinking about recruiting, spring
practice-and building a house. He
made it clear he expects to be
around for some time.
"Time is against us," Pont said
of the late start onus965 recruit-
ing. "By the time we get settled
we'll have four to six weeks before
the April deadline. But the present
staff has been working."
He told a news conference in
Indianapolis he would be glad to
get back to spring practice, which
he did not have at Yale.
"It's an excellent time to ex-
periment," he said.
The 37-year-old Pont accepted
a five-year contract as Indiana
head coach at undisclosed terms.
Pont, who compiled a record
of 12 victories, five defeats and

one tie in two seasons at Yale
after putting together a 43-22-2
mark in seven years at Miami,
succeeds Phil Dickens. Dickens re-
signed Dec. 22 when his request
for reassignment' to another post
at the university was approved.
Indiana has not had a winning
football season since Dickens' 1958
team put together a 5-3-1 record.
The Hoosiers then have to go back
to 1947 before finding a compar-
able mark. In Big Ten Conference
play, the Hoosiers have won only
10 games in the last 10 years
while losing 43 and tying two.
"It's a challenge," said Pont.
Pont made two trips to the In-
diana campus before finally de-
ciding. He said he took so long
to make up his mind because he
had no reason for leaving Yale
and was looking for reasons to
accept the Indiana offer.
The new Hoosier coach, who
took four assistants with him from
Miami to Yale, said he also hopes
to bring the bulk of his staff to
Indiana. The only doubtful one,
he said, is Carm Cozza, who wants
the Yale head coach post.

ginning of the season. However;
this year he feels that his thin-
clads, having lost many top men

sophomores to watch, but with
some reliable regulars as well.

squad had, when it captured the

Championship and took second in
the Big Ten Outdoor meet. He

New Faces
Today's meet will give some sort
of indication of the quality of sev-
eral new performers, who will be
tested for the first time in varsity
competition. Among these is Dave
Cooper, a sprinter from Wood-
mere, N.Y. Cooper, running in the
60-yd. dash today,' has turned In
a .9:06 for the 100 and 0:20.9 for
the 220. Another sophomoreto
watch is Bob Gerometta, from
Portage, Indiana. He is compet-
ing in the 440-yd. dash and will
also run a leg in the mile-relay.
Gordon Harvey is another of
Canham's fine crop of newcomers.
Shot-putting upwards of 48 feeet
as a freshman, Harvey nowcan
be expected to approach the 50
foot mark. Marion Hoey, from
'Flint, Mich., looms as a possible
star quarter-miler, having broken
0:50 on several occasions.
Along with the sophomores
there are, of course, the expe-
rienced regulars. Dorie Reid, who
placed fifth in last year's Big
Ten Indoor 60"yd. dash, is again
running in this event, with a best
time of 0:6.2 to his credit. An-
other sprinter who will be seeing a
lot of action this year is Willie
