Basketball Coach Dave Strack
will find out just how good his
squad really is this season, when
the Wolverines face two of the
toughest cage teams in the nation
this vacation period.
On tap between now and the
beginning of next semester are
games with Western Michigan,
here, Saturday night; Detroit,
here, December 31; Northwestern,
ere, January 4; and Purdue,
away, January 11. But the big
contests are against Duke, cur-
rently rated third in the nation,
at Yost Field House, December 21;
and against NYU, currently listed
second in the country, at the Los
Angeles Classic, December 26.
Western Michigan, with a 12-12
record last year, should be a much
ifproved team this year with the
return of eight lettermen. The

NEW. YORK ()-Y. A. Tittle,
the 37-year-old quarterback who
is the sum and total of the New
York Giants' offense, has been
named Most Valuable Player in
the National Football League by
an Associated Press 42-man panel
from the 14 league cities.
What Jimmy Brown is to the
Cleveland Browns, Tittle is to the
Giants, only more so. Y. A.'s worth
was shown on the one occasion
this year he couldn't play, be-
cause of some painfully bruised
ribs. The Giants were blanked by

Y. A. has thrown the most
touchdown passes, 199, breaking
Bobby Layne's mark of 196, and
the most passes, 1,954, smashing
another Layne record. In addition,
Tittle has connected for 33 TD
passes this season, tying the mark
he set last year. He still has a

Although taken lightly before
entering the game, Detroit pulled
a major upset last year by down-
ing the highly favored Wolverines,
83-70. Besides hurting its pride,
Michigan also was struck a severe
blow when Buntin injured his knee
during the contest and had to
come out. For several games there-
after, he had it heavily taped.
The Titans appear to be the po-
tential spoilers on anyone's sched-
ule as they almost beat Loyola
earlier this week. Detroit was tied'
by Loyola in the closing seconds
of the contest and was forced into
overtime after leading throughout
most of the game. Loyola finally
pulled it out, 113-108.-
Conference competition begins
against Northwestern after the
first of the year. Michigan took
one of its two encounters with the
Wildcats last year, and sophomore
center Jim Pitts is expected to
make Northwestern even tougher

dropped two decisions to the Wol-
verines last year and finished in
the conference cellar. With ten
starters, Purdue should be a much-
