Strack Praises

Depth, Efficiency'

QB Brothers Leads Oregon State Offense

'= _."


"We were just an efficient ball
club," reminisced basketball Coach
Dave Strack in the aftermath of
the Wolverine runaway over Mis-
souri Monday night, 91-61.
Although he was quick to add
that the best team effort so far
materialized in the win over Duke.
Strack, whose team faces Indiana
State tonight, was pleased with
the display of depth exhibited in
the Missouri fiasco. "When you
have three or four guys who
can come right off the bench
and not hurt your team, you've got
a good ball club," he said.
Fourteen Wolverines saw ac-
tion in the game and 12 broke
into the scoring column. Bill Bun-
tin led the Michigan scorers with
14 points followed by Cazzie Rus-
sell and Larry Tregoning with 12
each and John Thompson with
10. Four other players contributed
eight points each.
Special Mention
Special mention went to Jim
Myers, Craig Dill, George Pomey,
and John Clawson. Myers, a 6'8"
forward, collected 10 rebounds and
eight points against Missouri while
Dill, a 6'10" sophomore, cleared
the boards twice and added eight
points. Pomey and Clawson play-
ed at the guard spots, and together
hit for 10 points.
Russell, who was called "the
best basketball player in the coun-
try" by Missouri Coach Bob Van-
atta, leads Michigan scorers after
three games with 66 points for a
22.0 average.

Strack, after agreeing with Van-
atta's evaluation of Russell, add-
ed that "it's hard to say what
Cazzie would do were he on a
team where the scoring burden fell
entirely upon himself. He has no
limit, but I think he would pass
the ball off anyway because that's
the way he is." Russell, in com-
piling 66 points, has not missed
from the free throw line in 14 at-
Buntin's 46 points and a 15.3
average place him behind Russell,
and Ollie Darden is third in the
scoring derby with 39 points and"
a 13.0 average. Larry Tregoning,
who has been shooting at a clip
of 9.7 points per game, has hit
13 for 19 from the floor.
Under the boards, Buntin has
a sizable lead over Darden, 42-1
30. Russell is third with 25 re-
bounds while second-stringer My-
ers has collected 24.
Vanatta's observation that no
one could stay with the Wolver-
ines under the boards is some-
what substantiated by the fact
that in three games Michigan has
grabbed 67 more rebounds than
its opponents have.
The problem of finding a fifth
starter in addition to Russell,
Buntin, Darden, and Tregoning
has- been settled for the moment.
John Thompson, after scoring
only three points in the opener
against Ball State, has since turn-
ed in what Strack calls two fine

The deciding factor in the Duke
game, according to Strack, was a
bucket by Thompson, and the Mis-
souri' Tigers saw the 6' junior
score 10 points in his role as lead-
er of the Wolverine's devastating
fast break.
"I'm sure Thompson will start,"

Stra ck said in reference to to-
night's game against Indiana State
which probably will feature gen-
erous substitutions once more.
Paper Kitty
Indiana State on paper does not
pose a serious threat to Michi-
gan's national title hopes, but
Strack is prepping his players for
this game and not for the up-
coming confrontations with Ne-
braska and Wichita.
"Ball State gave us a little
trouble, and I regard Indiana State
on a higher level. Although we're
confident of victory, we're not
looking ahead yet," he said.
Lenny Long, a 6'5" senior for-
ward, is Indiana State's leading
scorer. Last year, he accounted
for 13.4 points per game and led
his team in rebounding with a
10.0 average. Long is one of seven
returning lettermen on a squad
which features not one out-of-
state player.
Another standout is Rudy Crab-
tree, a 5'10" guard. He averaged
11.0 points per game last year as
a junior.
Other lettermen include 6'3"
center Jim Gurnell, 6'6" forward
Claude Huckstep, 6'2" guard Louis
Murillo, 5'8" guard Don Pope, and
6'5" forward Marvin Willett.
The game will start at 8 p.m.
in Yost Field House.

Once again this year, the key to
the Beaver offense is their quar-
terback-a sophomore named Paul
Brothers. And while Brothers
hasn't won the Heisman trophy,
he has led the Beavers to the
WPCA conference title and an im-
pressive 8-2 record.
"Brothers has done an out-I
standing job for Oregon State,"i
says Michigan defensive line coach
Bob Hollway. "He can run and
pass well."
Brothers was awarded the start-
ing quarterback position over sen-
ior Gordon Queen this fall main-
ly on the merit of his running
ability, for Queen was recogniz-I
ed as the better passer. But the
sophomore has performed well in
both capacities, accounting for all1

Taylor Supports 'M

Both men are Michigan alumni,
both were coaches at Oregon
State, both are back with their
alma mater, and neither one is
facing the game in Pasadena with
mixed emotions.
The one of course is head foot-
ball Coach Bump Elliott. The oth-
er is former Michigan great La-
Verne (Kip) Taylor.
Taylor is back at the university
after an absence of 33 years. He
started his career at the same
time as Michigan Stadium, scor-
ing the first touchdown in the
first game there on a 28-yard
pass from Louis Gilbert on Oct.
1, 1927.
Following his graduation in
1931, Taylor coached basketball,
football and baseball at Ann Ar-
bor High, producing three unde-
feated football teams and the 1943
state champs, and in Hammond,
Ind. In 1945 Biggie Munn picked
Taylor along with Duffy Daugh-
erty and Forest Evashevski to help
coach the Syracuse football team.
The entire crew deserted Syra-
cuse for East Lansing the next
season, with Taylor coaching the
Michigan State College ends.

Sophomore Phil Fuller led the

on the side horse, and Chris Van-

were other soph winners.
On the still rings, sophomore
Cliff Chilvers tied with senior
Rich Blanton. The only other up-

were Fred Sanders on the tram-
poline and John Cashman, a high
bar performer.
