"We can't match Michigan in
any department. They're just too
big and too strong."
The speaker was Johnny Erick-
son, frank but hopeful Wisconsin
coach, and the subject under dis-

If Michigan beats Wisconsin,
they will clinch at least a share of
the Big Ten championship, and if
Iowa should stop Minnesota at
Iowa City tonight, the Wolverines
' would be assured of gaining the
crown alone.
No Board Strength
"I don't want to undersell my
team, but we just don't have the
rebounding," said Erickson. The

37-year-oid veteran coac con-
tinued, "I know power when I see
it, and Dave Strack has a power-
ful team. I watched them beat
Illinois last Saturday and I've
never seen a finer collegiate

And Michigan is better than they
were last year. The Big Ten this
year is just too good for us. I'm
proud to be in it and we all want
a Big Ten team to take the NCAA
this year."
The Badgers own a 3-8 confer-
ence mark, having beaten Purdue,
Northwestern, and, just last Sat-
urday, Michigan State. Overall,
they are 8-11.
Short Starters
The starting line-up for Wiscon-
sin shows a pair of guards, Jim
Bohen and Dennis Sweeney, who
do not even average six feet.
Bohen is 5'10" and Sweeney 6'1."

Ti'e forwards are more impressive.
Ken Gustafson and Ken Barnes,
both of whom hail from Illinois,
are fine jumpers. Gustafson led
the Badgers in scoring last year.
At center is 6'6" junior Mark
Zubor who has had some excel-
lent games this season and sports
an average of 15 points a game.
The bench is experienced, with
juniors Dave Roberts, Paul Mor-
enz and Dale Schultz heading the

Strack was breathing a little eas-
ier, with the Wolverines' narrow
80-79 victory over Illinois, now
in the past.
Two of Three
That game was only the third
time that Illinois has lost in its

Big Ten Standings


A brawl and a cliff-hanger were
the featured performances in last
night's A' basketball champion-
ships for IM sports.
The residence hall title was won
by Gomberg, 33-21, over Taylor,
in a game literally bitterly fought,
while Lambda Chi Alpha edged
Delta Tau Delta in the fraternity
division, 45-42.
In the third quarter of the
Gomberg-Taylor game, with Gom-
berg leading 32-17, Taylor's Bob
Schram was fouled by Wally Gab-
ler and the fireworks began. Play-
ers, coaches, referees, and fans
somehow or other all got tied up
in the melees which resulted from
this collision, and the game was
delayed for five minutes, after
which time Gabler was ejected
and the contest resumed.
The game as a whole was char-
acterized by rough play, as three
players fouled out. The tone of the
game was set in the first period,
as Gomberg scored nine straight
points to lead 14-9 going into the
second quarter.
By halftime, the score had
mounted to 24-12, and the issue
was never in doubt after that.
Quite a diferent story was the
contest between the Delts and
Lambda Chi. The seesaw battle



saw the lead change hands seven;
times and the score tied sevenI
times. The first quarter ended with
Lambda Chi out in front 13-11,
and they were able to gain only
one more point at the half, 24-21.
In the third period, however,
the Delts broke loose for eight
straight points, sparked by Joe
Cutro and Bob Timberlake, and
took a five point advantage, the
biggest lead of the game, and led
by 31-29 going into the final ten
minutes. But Lambda Chi Alpha
refused to give up and, after be-

ing behind by as much as five
points with only a few minutes to
go, managed to knot the score
at 39-39.
In o t h e r action, Michigan
trounced Huber 39-17 for the 'B'
team titles, the Unofficial Drop-
outs dropped the Falcons, 53-38,
in the independent division, and
the Law Club defeated Nu Sigma
Nu to capture first place in the
professional fraternity class. The
fraternity 'B' game between Beta
Theta Pi and Phi Gamma Delta
was postponed.

Trackmen Hope for Repeat of Last Year

The Michigan track team will
be hoping that 1965 will be a
repeat of 1964 which was a re-
peat of 1963 as it journeys to the
Big Ten Indoor Track and Field
Championships at Champaign, Ill.
this Friday and Saturday.
Two years ago, Wisconsin was
favored to cop the conference
crown but a wave of injuries to
key Badgers and some outstand-
ing performances by Michigan and
Iowa gave the Wolverines and the
Hawkeyes the championship to-
gether with 43 points each. The
Badgers finished in third with 40,
Once Again
Last year Wisconsin was again
heavily favored. Most of the men
who had made up the team which
lost the Big -Ten meet the year
before were back to avenge their
disappointing loss. The only team
which was given half a chance
was Michigan, but their chances
appeared to be slim. The result-
Michigan came up with five in-
div.dualchampions and outpoint-
ed second place Wisconsin, 67-48.
The Michigan track team of last
year won the conference title be-
cause all of the men performed
beyond what was expected of
them. If they are to successfully
defend their indoor conference
championship the Wolverines will
have to perform as they did last
year-beyond what is expected.
The Favorites
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan
State, and Michigan are expected
to fight it out for the team ti-
tle with the edge again going to
Wisconsin. Michigan's chances can
be' summed up very simply by
the words of Wolverine Coach
Don Canham, "We're certainly not
Canham feels that he has "a
good solid team" which has "pro-
gressed about as expected" since
the beginning of the season with
"no great surprises yet." The sur-
prises Canham hopes will come in
the big one this weekend at Cham-
In the 60 yard dash Trenton
Jackson of Illinois and Steve
Goldston of Iowa appear to be the
favorites with Michigan's Dorie
Reid and Carl Ward given good
chances also. Canham feels it will
be "any one of the four." All four
men have run :06.2 this season.
Second Place
Last year Jackson finished sec-
ond while Goldston and Reid were
fourth and fifth, respectively. Can-
ham also gives sophomore Dave
Cooper a good chance to place.
Michigan Captain Kent Bernard
is the defending champion in the
600 yard run but Canham is un-
decided as to whether he will run
him in the 600 or the 400 yard
dash. Bernard, the Olympian from
Trinidad, beat out Al Montalbano
of Wisconsin to win the 600 last
year with a time of 1:10.4.
Bernard also ran in the coun-
try's fastest 440 leg as he anch-

ored the Michigan mile relay team
to a third spot in the indoor
championships. He was clocked in
:47.0 for the quarter-mile.
Hope To Advance
Michigan will be running Dan
Hughes and Cecil Norde in the
880 yard run. Last year Norde
finished third behind his now
graduated teammate Ted Kelly
who won the individual crown
with a time of 1:53.5. Barney Pe-
terson of Wisconsin, who has the'
best time in the Big Ten in the
880 this year (1:54.6), will prob-
ably run in the 1000 yard run
where he also has the best tine
with 2:10.2. Running against Pe-
terson in the 1000 will be Wol-
verine sophomore Brian Kelly.
Michigan's defending champion
in the mile, Des Ryan, sustained
an injury early this year and
only recently has started to come
around. Ryan's teammate sopho-
more Jim Mercer will likewise be
running in the mile as will one
of two strong runners from North-
western, Lee Assenheimer or Craig
Boydston. Assenheimer has run
4:11.4 this year while Boydston
has done 4:11.6. (These are the
top times in the conference this

gan's Ted Benedict has run the!

center Skip Thoren rounded out
the starting unit.
Russell and Buntin have been
instrumental in keeping Michi-
gan undefeated in the Big Ten
race and headed towards a sec-
ond straight conference crown and
NCAA playoff berth.
Russell scored Michigan't last
five points in a key 8 0-79 victory
over IlinoisSaturday while Bun-
tin whipped in 30 points.
Hudson has been the big factor
in keeping Minnesota in conten-
tion all season and Thoren, until
being recently hampered by an
injured foot, has been Illinois'
main threat all season.
