Unbeaten in the Big Ten, the
Michigan Wolverines face their
sternest challenge of the season
against runnerup Minnesota with
the Big Ten title riding on every
The eighth - ranked Gophers
come into the game with an 8-1
mark in the conference and their
sights set on the title-hungry
Wolverines' first-place slot.
Top-ranked Michigan invades
the hostile 18-000-seat Williams
Arena with stinging echoes from
last year's 89-75 humiliation, but
with equally vaulting memories of
the two victories here in last sea-
son's NCAA Mideast Regional
Looking for Trouble
"We've proven that we can play
top basketball there," Michigan
Coach Dave Strack said before
departing yesterday, recalling the
wins over Loyola and Ohio Univer-
sity last March.
"We don't expect anything
tricky or extraordinary," he says.
"The only thing we're looking for
from them is trouble."
Wolverines Keep Poll Lead
For Fourth Straight Week
By The Associated Press
Firmly entrenched in the Big
Ten's No. 1 position, the Michigan
Wolverines continued atop the
Associated Press' college basket-
ball poll this week, which wit-
nessed a major shakedown in the
Michigan collected 17 first place
votes and 321 points in the latest
balloting by a special panel of 35
regional experts. Runner-up UCLA
collected 280 points on a basis of
10 points for a first place vote,
9 for second, etc.
Conference leaders Vanderbilt
and New Mexico broke into the
Top Ten, ninth and tenth re-'
spectively. Vanderbilt is the lead-
er in the Southeastern Conference,
New Mexico the pace-setter of the
Western Athletic Conference.
In other changes, St. Joseph's
(Pa.) regained third place from
unbeaten Providence, Duke moved
into fifth place ahead of David-
son, and Minnesota climbed one
position to eighth.
The Wolverines, who lead the
Big Ten with a 9-0 mark, lifted
their over-all record to 17-2 last
week with victories over Indiana,
96-95 in double overtime, and Ohio
St. Joseph's, 23-1, downed Buck-
nell 94-57 and Villanova 69-61
while Providence fell back a notch
to fourth despite an 88-72 con-
quest of Rhode Island. The vic-
tory was the 19th for the Friars,
the only unbeaten major college.

LAST NIGHT'S RESULTS

The Gophers generate most of
their trouble from 6'5" junior for-
ward Lou Hudson who is the bul-
wark of the offense. Hudson cur-
rently is scoring at a pace of 21
in the Big Ten and notched 31 in
the Gophers' narrow escape at
Northwestern Saturday night.
Pull It Out
The Wildcats, still tied for
seventh with the Wolverines' lat-
est victim, Ohio State, just missed
the upset of the season as they
stormed back from an 11-point
halftime deficit to pull within a
point of the Gophers, 60-59, and
then stayed with the visitors until
the last two minutes of play. The
final score was 88-77, but that
followed an eight-point Gopher
streak in the closing 90 seconds.
S t r a c k sees Minnesota as
"stronger than last year," referring
to the Northwestern game as a
testimonial to the Gophers' ex-
perience. "They couldn't pull out
those tight road games last sea-
son," he says.I
"They're basically the same as
we are-building on four proven
veterans with a year's experience
under their belts," he says.
In addition to Hudson, the Go-
phers',fast-break attack is spurred
by speedy junior guards Archie
Clark at 6'1%/" and Don Yates at
6'3". In the center, bulky 6'8"
Mel Northway doesn't give up any
height to Bill Buntin, but the
Minnesota front line remains
smaller than the visitors with 6'6"
Despite holding a slight height
advantage, the Wolverines will
have to cope with the Gophers'
speed and balanced scoring per-
formances from the top four
starters. Hudson is the leader, but
Yates, Clark and Northway have
all notched more than 20, and as
usual, all hit in double figures in
the Northwestern game.
Having lost only three times all
season-once to UCLA in the Los
Angeles Classic, once to Iowa in
a freak performance the next
night, and once to Illinois at
Champaign - the Gophers are
gunning for a first-place tie, while
the Wolverines are out to vir-
tually sew up the title with a win.
A victory would put Michigan in
the enviable position of holding a

SOUTH BEND - The golden
dome looked a little tarnished to
South Benders last evening as
they saw Michigan cindermen set
four new meet records in a strong
65-39 triumph over Notre Dame.
A total oT seven meet records
and one field house record fell in
the competition, during which the
trackmen from Ann Arbor manag-
ed to sweep three events.
Michigan's shotputters again
exhibited their strength by easily
sweeping the first three places in
the event. Gordon Harvey cap-
tured first place with a toss of
52'2", cracking the old meet stan-
dard of 52'%" set in 1953. Junior'
Bill Yearby placed second and
Steve Leuchtman took third.
Dorie Reid led a Wolverine
sweep of the 60 yard dash, turning
in a clocking of 6.2 seconds to
smash the former meet record.
Behind Reid were football half-
back Carl Ward and Dave Cooper,
who finished second and third,
Michigan cindermen accomplish-
ed their third sweep in the 440
yard dash as captain Kent Bernard
picked up the win in a time of
49.6 seconds. In second place for
the Wolverines was Bob Geromet-
ta, while Marion Hoey placed
and Notre Dame field house mark
when he cleared 14'7". A duel
developed between Canamere and
Notre Dame's Dave McNamee, but
McNamee failed to clear the 14'7"
height. The leap was a personal
high for Canamere, whose pre-
vious top performance had been
14'6" against Penn State last Fri-
Other Wolverines who earned
first places included Brian Sween-
ey, who leaped 22'5" in the broad
jump, and Bob Densham, who es-
tablished a new meet record of

Henderson took three second
places for Michigan: the 60 yard

No, the number five means Big'
Ten Championships in a row. With
Michigan's close triumph over
Iowa, Saturday the Wolverine
gymnasts all but clinched a con-
ference title. The only way Mich-
igan can tie rather than win the
title would be to lose this Satur-
day to weak Indiana, a prospect
as likely as Mao Tse Tung becom-
ing mayor of Ann Arbor.
Michigan has won its fifth
straight despite the hindrance of
having no all-around man. In
other words, Loken gives the op-
position six points in each meet.
The strategy has worked as Mich-
igan's team of specialists has con-
sistently overcome those six points,

Not by Choice
This accent on specialization is
not by choice, but is dictated by
the simple fact that Michigan
does not have an all-around man
who can come close to Jim Curzi
of Michigan State, Glen Gailis of
Iowa, and Fred Roethlisberger, of
Gary Vander Voort, Alex Frec-
ska, and Ned Duke have worked
all-around, but all possess decid-
ed weaknesses in several events.
Vander Voort, only a sophomore,
will probably work all-around next
year, but Loken says he has a
long way to come on the side
horse, his weakest event.
Though Vander Voort has prob-
lems on the horse, Michigan has
found somebody who doesn't, Art
Baessler. Baessler, another soph,
posted a 94.5 against Iowa to beat
Ken Gordon, rated as one of the
best in the conference, and Gailis.
Loken called Baessler's win "the
one that put us on our way."
The side horse win was big be-
cause it was a surprise, but Michi-
gan's sweeps in floor exercise and

they were expected. Mike Hender-
son won floor ex with a splendid
94.5, equalling his performance
against MSU the previous week.
