board and layup artistry, and to-
tally bottled up thel middle. Bun-
tin and Harris continually blocked
shots with gay abandon, and the
whole squad constantly took ad-
vantage of the visitors' miscues to
steal the ball and set up a fast
break.
Little Trouble
On the outside, the diminutive
Herner and Cantrell had relative-
ly little trouble with rivals Tom

Apke and Tom Hext, 6'5" and 6'4"
respectively.
The Wolverines led in every de-
partment imaginable. They shot'
40.2 per cent to Creighton's 29.6,
and outrebounded them, 61-56.
They also shot free throws at a 15
for 19 clip, compared with 14 out'
of 24 for the Bluejays.
But perhaps the biggest differ-
ence of all was Buntin's domina-
tion of Silas. The 6'7" center for
the Omaha, Neb. team made just

five field goals out of 28 at-
tempts. Whenever he did manage
to get the ball, he was forced to
shoot over Buntin, because he just
couldn't get around. As a result,
his hook shot was feeble, and his
layup non-existent.
Advantageous Frame
In contrast, Michigan's 6'7" man
from Detroit's Northern High
School used his 232-lb. frame to
displace Silas' usual threat under
the basket. And, just to keep the

defense honest, he occasionally
dumped in a few jumpers at 10
feet.
Needless to say, Coach Dave
Strack was ecstatic with praise
over his charges. "Everyone had
his fair share of the win," said
Strack. "They came ready to play
tonight, and weren't nervous like
against Ball State. We took the
initiative with about 12 minutes
gone in the first half, and didn't
give it up except for about two

minutes at the beginning of the
second half. It may be an old
cliche, but it was a team effort all
the way, and I'm very proud of all
of them."
Assistant Coach Jim Skala, who
scouted Creighton, praised Michi-

"Silas is a fine player, there's no
doubt in my mind about that,"
he commented. "After I saw himi
play Saturday, I knew we'd have
to stress rebounding, and I guess
the results speak for themselves."
Creighton came into town a
highly touted ball club, having lost
only to national champ Cincinnati
in the district playoffs last year.
But Michigan showed promise of
things to come with seemingly no
effort at all.

Florida In
Gator Bowl
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (P) --
The Florida Gators were named
yesterday to meet Penn State in
the Gator Bowl football game in
spite of the loss to Miami which
was supposed to have knocked
Florida out of the Dec. 29 post-
season contest.
The Gator Bowl selection com-
mittee tabbed Florida 6-4 as the
best available Southern team after
being turned down by Duke 8-2.
"After sampling public opinion
and after feeling out the attitude
of the Florida camp, we feel that
Florida is definitely the best team
in the South to play Penn State,"
said Lamar Dean, selecting chair-
man.
RayGraves, Florida head coach
and athletic director, accepted the
bid 'promptly. Graves said the
Florida players are eager to meet
the best team in the East.
