If Michigan had never lost a
close game, yesterday's 89-83 vic-
tory over Illinois at Yost Field
House would simply have been a
matter of staving off a late Illini
bid to coast on to win.
But the Wolverines were play-
ing with the haunting memories of
St. John's and Nebraska, even
when they held a lead of 13
For Bill Buntin and Cazzie Rus-
sell, who shared high scoring hon-
ors with 30 each, it was a highly
successful opening of the Big Ten
season, since, as Cazzie said after
the game, "We had to win this
The win, by the identical score
as last year, put the defending
co-champion Wolverines off to a
1-0 mark in the conference, 9-2
overall, and prevented the Illini
from winning their third straight
Big Ten ball game.
As Illinois Coach Harry Combes
summed up the game, Michigan
was "just too strong physically," a
fact that showed up in the Wolver-
ines' 62-42 domination of the re-
bounding. Buntin was the leader
with 18, while Larry Tregoning
A full house at Yost saw Wol-
verine Coach Dave Strack field the
tallest team in Michigan history
for most of the game as George
Pomey started at forward and was
quickly shifted to 'a guard when
Oliver Darden came on to replace
John Thompson. The lineup with
Pomey and Darden both playing
averaged 6'6" and overwhelmed
the smaller Illini.
Strack was pleased with the new
combination after the game and

PITTSBURGH - Michigan's
crippled wrestlers racked up their'
twenty-fourth consecutive victory
by downing a tough Pittsburgh
squad, 21-11,byesterday at Pitts-
A highlight of the meet was the
unusual number of pins. Half of
the eight matches were won on
pins, and the Wolverine grapplers
chalked up three of them.
Three 'M' Pins
Bob Fehrs, a sophomore and one
of five Wolverines to move up a
weight to replace injured first
stringers, scored the first pin of
the meet in his 130-pound bout
with Pittsburgh's Don Caslow with
only 33 seconds remaining in the
The second Wolverine pin was
notched by sophomore Jim Kam-
man wrestling in his first inter-
collegiate dual meet. Kamman was
moved up from his regular weight
division at 147 pounds to wrestlo
in place of the injured Lee Dei-
trick at 157 pounds. Trailing 2-0
Kamman pinned Panther Tom
Baily in the second period of the
match. Assistant Coach Dennis
Fitzgerald described Kamman aft-
erwards as the "happiest young
man of the day."
Heavyweight Bob Spaly scored
the third Wolverine pin after less
than three minutes had gone by
in his match with Bill Bodle.
Spaly now has three straight dual
meet victories to his credit this
season, two by shutouts and one
by a pin.
The Panthers picked up their
pin in the 177-pound matchwhen
Lee Hall pinned Michigan's Tony
Feiock at 3:55. Feiock, however,
was wrestling two weight classes
above his nrmal weight to take
the place of Chris Stowell, who is
out with a kneeinjury.
The other two Wolverine losses
were by very small margins. In
the 123-pound match, Michigan's
Tino Lambros lost 5-4 to Tonm
Heniff. The bout was not' decided
until the final period. The two
wrestlers were tied 4-4 but Hen-
1ff got a point for riding time
which he gained in the last min-
Tn aothe~r close match. Doug
tory in the fourth match gave
Michigan an 8-6 lead which it
At 167 pounds, Dave Post, an-
other Wolverine wrestling above
his weight class, trounced George
Huson, 10-4, on the strength of
3 near falls.
Fitzgerald commented that the
Wolverines "did a very good job
considering the number of injur-
ies and the number of men wres-
tling above their weight classes."
He also commented that Johan-
nesen may be able to wrestle next
week in the Big Ten opener
against Illinois, but that the con-
dition of the other injured wres-
tlers, Stowell, Deitrick, and cap-
tain Rick Bay, was doubtful.
