Cagers' Second String: Not Overlooked
By LLOYD GRAFF
What dd Hubert H. Humphrey
and Craig H. Dill have in com-
The same middle initial, you
Not only that. They're both
hanging around in case something
happens to the top dog, the man
in the center. They are both re-
placements, ready if ever needed.
Dill exemplifies the Michigan
second stringers this year. A high
school All-American from Sagi-
naw, he came to Michigan only
to be confronted by a college All-
American occupying his position,
Bill Buntin. And a man who aver-
aged over 20 points a game in
the Big Ten usually isn't replac-
ed in his senior year.
Sits and Watches
Dill sits on the bench during
the games watching the moves of
the men he'll be playing against
next year, a year in which Coach
Dave Strack says "he'll really be
something to reckon with in the
Such is the plight of men like
Dill, John Thompson, Jim Myers,
John Clawson, Dennis Bankey,'
Tom Ludwig, and Dan Brown,
They would be starters on many
teams, but on first ranked Michi-
gan they spend most games as
spectators. It's an adjustment for
a player who was "it" in high
While the role of the bench-
warmer is not one of the more
romantically publfcized ones iu
sports, it is nonetheless an im-
portant one. A man has to go in
cold and try to integrate himself
into the action immediately so the
team won't lose any momentum.
Frank Ramsey, formerly of the
Boston Celtics, made a career out
of being the best sixth man in
basketball. Red Auerbach called
him the most valuable member of
his championship teams except for
Bill Russell and Bob Cousy.
Jim Myers did what Strack calls
"a really fine job at Purdue" when
he came in after Larry Tregoning
was injured. Myers picked up four
big baskets for Michigan. He may
get a starting position Monday
against Iowa, depending on how
Tregoning's ankle heals.
Thompson had a strong, if not
too long game, against Michigan
State, as he pumped in two out
of two from the field and four of
six free throws in the overtime
But basketball isn't futility for
Michigan's second string. Of Mich-
igan's seven top subs, only Ludwig
is a senior. All the others will
have a shot at a starting position
next season when Buntin, Tregon-
ing and Pomey are gone. Strack
gives a thumbnail sketch of the
strengths of his reserves.
Craig Dill-fine shooter . . . will
definitely be center next season
. considered best prospect to
come out of Michigan two years
ago . . . has fine offensive moves
. . rugged practice against Bun-
tin is toughening him up, but he
could still use more weight for re-
bounding ... probably as heavy as
he'll ever get.
Jim Myers - excellent shooter
from outside for big man . . . has
improved considerably under the
boards... a junior with added
weight and scrappiness . . . can
play forward or center . . . left
handed . . . first replacement for
Darden and Tregoning . . . good
speed for his size.
John Thompson-fine looping
jump shot from outside ... a jun-
ior, small for Big Ten at 6 foot .. .
first replacement at guard . .bet-
ter than average defense ,... ex-
John Clawson-a junior swing
man who has been switched from
forward to guard to forward since
at Michigan . . . at 6'4" small for
a corner man and big for a guard
. strong point is shooting.
Tom Ludwig-small guard whose
forte is defense in the Bob Can
trell tradition . . . fair shooter .. .
very quick with lot of hustle .. .

Russell Ranked 7th
In National Scoring
CRAIG DILL (LEFT) AND JIM MYERS (RIGHT) represent
the bench strength that Coach Dave Strack has on this year's
team. Strack has had Dill, a high school All-America, working
out against All-Big Ten center Bill Buntin in practice to toughen
him up for Big Ten play.

Michigan's Cazzie Russell is
seventh in the national scoring
race this week, averaging 26.7
points per game.
The junior sharpshooter is 11.5
points behind Miami of Florida's
Rick Barry who is currently boast-
ing a 38.2 game average.
Barry widened his lead in the
major-college basketball scoring
race to a 5.5 margin over runner-
up Wayne Estes of Utah State.
Barry has scored 649 points in
17 games while Estes has scored
556 points in 17 games, a per-
centage of 32.7.
Bill Bradley of Princeton is
third with 32.0 followed by Steve
Thomas, Xavier of Ohio, 28.9 and
Dave Schellhase, Purdue, 28.4.
Warren Isaac of Iona took over
first place in rebounds with a
20.9 mark and Bob Lloyd of Rut-
gers climbed into the top position
in free throw accuracy. The latter
has hit on 76 of 82 free throws
for a .926 percentage.
Dayton's Henry Finkel main-
tained his lead in field goal ac-
curacy. He has connected on 186
of 293 for .635.
There were no changes among
the team leaders. Brigham Young
continues to hold first place in
offense with a 96.4-point average
and NewsMexico remainedathe
best defensive team with an aver-
age yield of 48.4 points.

DETROIT (R) -- The general
manager of the Detroit Pistons.
Don Wattrick, says Dave DeBus-
schere can have the job as per-
manent coach of the National
Basketball Association club if he
DeBusschere, a 'former Univer-
sity of Detroit star, took over as
temporary player - coach a f t e r
Charley Wolf was fired Nov. 10.
The Pistons' record was then 2-9.
Since then, they have won 22
and lost 25 and currently are on
a four-game winning streak.
The club already has won more
games than it did all last season.
But the 24-year-old DeBus-
schere isn't sure he wants the job.
"I don't know yet," he said. "A
lot of things enter into it."
DeBusschere plays baseball in
the Chicago White Sox system in
the summer, missing the early
spring training in baseball and
then missing the early basketball
training in the 'all.
Wattrick said Wednesday night
that owner "Fred Zollner and I
are completely happy with Dave."
Bad teaching, publish-or-perish ad-
ministrations and adherence to the
status quo are denying thousands
of college students of the full
value of their education. Some-
thing can be done about it! Read
