Wolverine Quintet Outclasses Spartans,

Win 66-52

Cagers Withstand Second-Half Challenge;
Buntin Leads Both Teams with 26 Points

Swim Rules Changes Praised

_ _

Michigan center Bill Buntin had
to move with three players sagging
around him last night but still
managed to get the ball often
enough to score 26 points in a
painful 66-52 basketball win over
San Jose State.
The Wolverines, coming out of
the game with their fifth win in
six starts, had to rely on Buntin
to pull them out of their slug-
gishness midway through the first
Then, with a 37-23 halftime
lead, they reAcned. a complete
standstill that saw San Jose State
roll off the first 11 points after
the intermission. Again it was
Buntin who turned the tide, scor-
ing 9 of Michigan's 17 points over
one span to pile up a safe 54-42
It was a difficult win for Mich-
igan to extract, especially consid-
ering that eighth-ranked Illinois
had routed the Spartans (sic), 90-
64, Monday night.
Nice Words from Rival
But despite all their troubles,
the Wolverines received praise
from an unexpected source --San
Jose State Coach Stu Inman,
whose team is now 5-3.
When it comes time next March
2 for the Illini to play their only
game of the year with the Wol-
verines-in Ann Arbor-Inman
says he's picking Michigan.
"Illinois has much better tal-
ent and has great shooting pow-
er," Inman commented. "But
Michigan is a smarter team. It's
a good, solid ball club that will
get better as the season goes.on."
Inman's analysis has Michigan,
a pattern-offense club, gaining
during the year on Illinois, which
is primarily a running team.
Run, Don't Improve
"Running teams don't generally
improve much during a season,"
he explained, pointing out that
the home-court advantage is also
bound to help Michigan.
As for Buntin, who led both
teams with 12 rebounds to go with
his, 26 points, Inman rated him
about even with Billy Burwell, Il-

linois' 6'8" senior center, but add-
ed that with more experience
Buntin will become "better than
Burwell ever hoped to be."
John Harris, with 11 points, was
the only other Wolverine in dou-
ble figures, while the Spartans
had Dennis Bates with 15, Bill
Robertson with 14 and Harry Ed-
wards with 10.
When the Wolverines found it
hard to move their offense in the
first half, Michigan Coach Dave
Strack yanked his two pint-sized
guards, Bob Cantrell and Doug
Herner, and substituted George
Pomey and Larry Tregoning, 6'4"
and 6'5", "respectively.
Pomey Stays In
As it turned out, Pomey played
out the rest of the game until
Strack emptied his bench with
two minutes to play. He scored
only three points but helped a lot
on defense.
With the two teams tied, 14-14,
and more than 10 minutes gone in
the game, it was Buntin who al-
most single-handedly moved the
team out in front.
He sank three free trows, hit
on a hook and a tip-in and then
put in two more free throws. That
accounted for nine points while
Michigan was outscoring San
Jose, 11-3.
That ballooned the score to 25-
17, and the Wolverines were able
to fast-break their way to a seem-
ingly-secure 14-point lead at the
Edwards Whooshes
When the teams returned after
the break, however, Michigan was
nearly whooshed off the court by
Edwards, the Spartans' 6'8", 240-
lb. center, who shook loose for
three baskets and three free
throws as San Jose outscored
Michigan, 11-0, in the first 42
minutes of the half.
But just when the Spartans
pulled to within two points, 40-
38, Edwards picked up his fourth
personal foul-he had committed
three in the first six minutes of
the game and sat out the rest of
the first half-and left the game

San Jose just wasn't the same
without him and never challenged
again. Michigan drew away by as
many as 20 points, 64-44, before
sending in the reserves.
Strack commented, "In the sec-
ond half we let them go about
theirhbusiness. We left Edwards
free under the basket and all he
had to do was make five-foot
shots. We've got to strive to be a
40-minute team."

CHICAGO W) - A field of 191
college, "open" and high school
track athletes will assemble for
today's important test of a
truce asked by President John F.
Kennedy in the long feud between
the National AAU and the NCAA.
The occasion is the University
of Chicago Track Club's tenth hol-
iday track and field meet, first
ever to bear joint sanction of the
erstwhile warring AAU and U.S.
Track Federation.
The Central AAU has sanctioned
the University of Chicago indoor
carnival since its inception, but
this is the first time it also has
official approval of the NCAA-
backed federation.
Maroon track Coach Ted Hay-
don, meet director, said he sought
a federation permit, not as a
challenge of the AAU's "sole au-
thority" co sanction open competi-
tion, but because he recognized
the federation's right to regulate
athlete's of its members - mainly
colleges and high schools.
The Central AAU earlier this
week said the meet will be con-
ducted under "all rules and regu-
lations of the AAUJ" and that it
regarded the federation's .sanction
as "an internal college matter"
between the University of Chicago
and the NCAA.
President Kennedy said last
week at a news conference the
2/2-year feud between the AAU
and the federation movement
alarmed him because of possible
ruining of U.S. prospects in the
1963 Pan-American Games and
1964 Olympics.
He asked that differences be
submitted to an arbitration panel.
The Chicago meet, Haydon said,
could prove an "excellent test"
of good will between the two fac-
tions and may signal the start of
a satisfactory compromise.
The field includes former col-
legiate stars and a number of
current college stars home for the
Christmas holiday.
Don Canham, University of
Michigan coach and a staunch
federation man, is expected to
bring 11 of the Wolverine track-
They will be pole vaulters Steve
Overton and Rod Denhart, shot-
putters George Puce and Ernst
Soudek, miler Des Ryan, quarter-
miler Talt Malone, hurdler Joe
Mason, and middle-distance run-
ners Dan Hughes, Ted Kelly, Dorr
Casto, and Joel Lewitz.
The half mile is expected to be
the top event in the competition
which calls for 3 p.m., EST, trials
and 8 p.m. finals in the Maroon
Field House.
The 880 field includes defending
champion Hike van der Way,
Canadian student at Nebraska
State Teachers; Villanova's Tom
Sullivan; John Bork, former West-
ern Michigan star; and Dave Mel-
lady, former Marquette star.
Other top entries include Willie
May, former Indiana hurdling
star who was runner-up in the

1960 Olympics; Ira Murchison, ex-
Western Michigan sprinter; and
Don Myers, U. of Colorado grad-
uate student, who has pole vault-
ed 15-6.


The Western Collegiate Hockey
Association takes a vacation break
with the surprising Spartans of
Michigan State holding the lead.
Coach Amo Bessone, who felt
that his Spartans were stronger
than a year ago, has watched his
team sweep a two-game series
from Michigan and split two with
North Dakota in forging to the top
of the league.
All-America goalie John Chan-
dik has turned in several great
performances, while veteran front-
liners Claude Fournel, Bob Doyle
and Real Turcotte lead the of-
fense. However, Fournel and Tur-
cotte run out of eligibility on Jan.
7, so some of the newcomers, such
as Detroit's Doug Roberts, will
have to provide more punch.
Tech Second
Michigan Tech holds down a
share of the second spot in league
standings with a 2-2 mark. In their
most recent league action, the
Huskies split a series with Denver
before the Pioneers came here.
The Tech scoring attack has
been wrapped up in the Draper
brothers, senior Mike and sopho-
more Dave, each with six points
on three goals and three asosts.
The third leading scorer is soph-
omore George Hill with three goals
and two assists for five points.
The Huskies, defending NCAA
champions, have received excellent
goaltending from Gary Bauman.
He has allowed only eight goals in
five games for a sparkling 1.6
goals-per-game average. Veteran
Bob Pallante is the only one of
the top four defensemen from last
year to return this winter.
Tied with Michigan Tech for
second place in the WCHA is Den-
ver. After splitting series with
Michigan and Michigan Tech, the
Pioneers hold a 2-2 record. Denver
was rated as one of the teams to
beat in pre-season predictions.
The Pioneers have many players
capable of putting the puck in the
net at crucial moments. Billy
Staub scored five goals against
Tech, but it was Marshall John-
ston's line that gave Michigan the
most trouble. Rudy Unis occupies
the goalie's position for Denver.
Sharing the fourth spot in the

WCHA after winning and losing
a game in league play are Minne-
sota and North Dakota.
At the University of Minnesota,
Coach John Mariucci hopes that
he will have a better hockey team
this year than last year's squad,
which finished a disappointing
sixth in the league. A nucleus of
11 lettermen provide the Gophers
with some experience while several
promising sophomores inject a
good deal of new talent.
Minnesota's strong point is de-
fense, where captain Louis Nanne
is considered by Mariucci to be
"as good a defenseman as there
is in the league." He teams with
two-year letterman Jim Westby
to form a top-grade combination.
Defense Strong

Ross has switched from a front-
line post to a defense assignment.
Ross has quickly become one of
the first team defensemen.
There are no league games
scheduled over the vation break,
but several of the WCHA teams
will be in action against non-
league opponents.
"Look your best
for the Holidays."
near the Michigan Theatre

The strong Gopher defense is
reflected in the scores of the two 7
games they have played against
Michigan Tech. They won the first
3-2 and lost the second 1-0. Michi-
gan will provide the next test for
the Gophers as they travel to St
Paul for the first series after the
vacation. The games are Jan. 4
and 5.
In contrast to the tight defense
of Minnesota is the free-wheeling
offensive game of North Dakota.
In two games at Michigan State,
the Sioux won 11-4 and lost 6-5.
Coach Barney Thorncraft feels:'
that his forward lines are "start-
ing to jell," and the Sioux may,:.
uive up to their ranking as one
of the top teams in the league this
year. Coach Pleased
