First by the first.
But this year it is not first by
the first of January, like last
year's signs at Yost Field House.
This season it's first in the na-
tional basketball ratings by the
first of December, before the
Michigan Wolverines ever play a
As one national magazine has

Last year's co-champions of the
Big Ten with Ohio State and a
third-place finisher in the na-
tional tournament, the Wolverines
and Coach Dave Strack look to an
"Every aspect of our team
should be better," he said yester-
day. "Every player has improved
and we should be tougher, smarter
and better defensively."
The nazional prominence doesn't
bother Strack-"After all, we don't
fool anybody. We've got good pros-
pects and nobody can disagree
But Strack, now in his fifth
season as head coach, is quick
to point out that "the ratings
won't affect our play. We proved
last year that we can perform
under pressure, and this year
everyone-both the coaches and
players-will be used to the pres-
Bill and Cazzie
The ability of the two Wolverine1
All-Americans, Bill Buntin and
Cazzie Russell, to rise to any oc-
casion was well proven last year
as the two led the team all the,
way to the semi-finals of the
NCAA tournament before being1
eliminated by Duke.
Buntin was chosen the most
valuable player in the NCAA re-
gional at Minnesota, and Russell,1
despite a painful ankle injury,
was chosen on the all-star squad
at the finals in Kansas City.
Buntin and Russell, of course,,
form the nucleus of the Michigan
squad, but as' Strack points out,
"we've got 10 kids who are all
Tregoning and Darden Return
Captain Larry Tregoning and
Oliver Darden return as starting
forwards, and the guard slot oc-
cupied by Bob Cantrell last year
remains the only questionable
"We're starting this season more
or less where we left off last
year," S.rack explained in his
office. By that he means that
John Clawson has the first crack
at the fifth starting spot.
Clawson finished last season as
the second guard replacement, be-
hind now-graduated Doug Herner.
He has been working out with the
first team through the first 10
days of practice this year.
Clawson's potential as a shooter
and his 6'4" height give him the
first crack, butthe coach is very
pleased with both junior John
Thompson and senior Tom Lud-
"I think that the competition
we have for positions is a very,
healthy thing," Strack points out I
"Actually we're flexible at every
position. Craig Dill, George Pomey
and Jimmy Meyers have all looked
very good so far and they'll all
help out the ball club. Naturally,
we'll always build around Buntin
and Russell, but every player'
knows that he can't slump very
long and not be replaced."
Strack is quite pleased with
Dill's progress this season. "He's
certainly improved already, and
should get even better as the
season progresses, he says re-
ferring to the 6'10" sophomore.
"He's been shooting very well, he's
fast, and looks like he'll be able
to do a good job under the boards."
The team has been practicing
since Oct. 15, and Strack is quite
happy with the way it has gone.

from Detroit, grabbed 178 rebounds in conference play last sea-

MICHIGAN STANDOUT CAZZIE RUSSELL scores one of the

Russell, who averaged nearly 25 points per game last year; will
play a major role in the Wolverines' bid for a second con-

"No, I don't have any secret formula," commented last week's
esoteric Grid Picks winner, W. J. Rollman of 816 Hill St. in an
exclusive phone interview early this morning.
"I just remember to circle only one team, and I have generally
found it to be true that either the home or the visiting team wins,"
added the elated winner candidly. Rollman also finds it helpful to
turn in his entry blank by midnight Friday since late entry blanks
are pasted on the Sports Staff bulletin board and thus subjected to
ridicule by various members of the staff.
Though he never won first prize in the Irish Sweepstakes, Rollman
concedes that his two tickets to the Michigan Theatre, now showing
"Kisses For My President," is far better because it limits his tax
