The rules state that you have to
ay in a six-foot circle while you
y to throw a 16-pound ball as
r as possible.
This is the definition of one of
le less glamorous events in track
nd field: shot-putting.
Every day at Yost Field House,
iree sophomores on Coach Don
anham's track squad practice to
irow that 16-pound sphere as
tr as they can. They are Ray
ocke, Terry Trevarthen and Bill
Most impressive of the trio
presently is Trevarthen. In the
intra-squad meet in December he
won the shot put with a toss of
49,5". In the two meets with the
Chicago Track Club, he came in
first again with marks of 51'4"
In high school le had a high of
42'6" with the 12-pound shot.
Changing his style he has in-
creased his distance considerably
and in last week's Michigan Open
he had his best toss to date-52'5".
Locke's high school career was
somewhat opposite that of Tre-
varthen's. His personal record in
high school' was a phenomenal
Using the larger ball he took
second in the Michigan AAU Re-
lays with 51'4" and later also took
second in the Michigan Open with
his top toss in varsity competition,
which. measured 51'7".
Radford never put the shot
while in high school but took up
the event while in the service and
was proficient enough at it to be-
come the Far Eastern Inter-Serv-
Radford placed second to Tre-
varthen in the meet here with the
Chicago Track Club. His best
mark, however, was set at the
Michigan State Relays when he
got away a 50'5" throw.
All believe that they can im-
prove in time. Radford hopes to
hit 55' in two years and Locke

has his sights set on a goal of over
55' in the next few seasons.
Trevarthen has- no personal
goal for he feels that if one has
goals and falls short of them, dis-
couragement and subsequent loss
of incentive will set in.
Goals or no goals, these men will
be trying to improve on their past
performances when they compete
this Saturday night in a dual
meet with Michigan State at East
WITH MEN who know their basketball best, it's California, 2-1.
That's this week's verdict of the 35 coaches who each Sunday
finger the nation's top-ranking college teams for United Press-Inter-
national. Twenty-four members of the selection board see the Golden
Bears (21-1) as the front runner. The defending NCAA champions'
closest competitor, Cincinnati, (20-1) received only one-third as many
first-place votes. Ohio State (19-2) got the nod on two other bal-
lots, while the remaining selector took Bradley (21-2).
The coaches appear so united in their choice for the number
one spot that most non-partisan fans would be willing to accept their
consensus. Willing, that is, until they picked up another paper and
saw where the nearly 200 sportswriters polled by the Associated Press
overwhelmingly favor Cincinnati as America's best team. California
comes out no better than fourth.
All of which leads to the conclusion that polls are full of sound
and fury but signify little.
THE REAL TEST of truth comes in two weeks with the beginning
of the regional playoffs. All arguments will be settled for good
March 19 when the western and eastern champions clash in the title
match at San Francisco's Cow Palace.
Combining the luck of the draw with the season-long form chart,
It would appear now that Ohio State should wander into the finale
facing either Cincinnati or California.
This *riter, usually a strong defender of exciting midwest bas-
ketball, finds it difficult to disagree with the coaches' consensus that
California is the finest in the land.
It's been seven years since the Big Ten last took the national
crown (Indiana In 1953) and the Buckeyes figure as the Conference's
best representative since then. But OSU and its magnificent sopho-
mores are still a year away from displaying all the earmarks of an
unbeatable team. They undoubtedly have the greatest all-around of-
fensive balance and depth of the top contenders. Lucas, Havlicek,
Nowell, Siegried and Roberts are all good for 25 points on any given
But the Bucks have a defense that hasn't matured with their of-
fensive might, even though their allotment of 70 points per Big Ten
game is the league's best. They simply outgun their rivals, as exem-
plified by their 96-95 win over Indiana or last Saturday's 84-83 de-
feat of Michigan State.
CINCINNATI, too, is essentially the same kind of run-and-shoot
club but without the amazing balance. The Bearcats aren't a one-
man club by any means as many would suppose with the presence of
Oscar Robertson, but his 40 points a game account for nearly half
of the team's output. A good team that can bottle him up has the
major part of the battle won. And Bradley proved you can still let
the Big "O" run wild and whip the Bearcats by taking advantage of
a sometimes-poitus defense.1
The key word in analyzing the inadequacies of both OSU and
Cincy is one that Pete Newell and his California team have concen-
trated and capitalized on - defense.
The Bears have It down pat. Their foes averaged a mere 51
points per game last year. And the champs are a better team, offen-
sively and defensively, this season.
IN THE FINALS of the Los Angeles Basketball Classic in December,
the Bears harnessed West Virginia in spectacular fashion, 65-45.
It was billed as a rematch of the NCAA finals last season which Cal
took by one. But the Bears squelched thp Mountaineers, averaging
more than 80 points prior to the showdown, at every turn. The losers
were held to a paltry 39 shots.
Even more astounding, everybody's All-American Jerry West col-
lected only eight points as a 6'6" stringbean with the unlikely name
of Tandy Gillis shadowed him all night and still found time to grab
Another skyscraper, 6'10" Darral Imhoff, settled for only five
points, but he hauled in 21 rebounds and rarely gave the Mountain-
eers a chance at a second shot.
UCLA coach John Wooden called the shots perfectly to this writer
before the title game began in illustrating what makes the Bears tick.
Said the veteran coach: "A lot of people call West the best player
in the country. Maybe he is - I don't know. But I do know that if
I could have any player I wanted, I wouldn't hesitate in picking Im-
hoff. He guards that basket so well, you don't have a chance."
The work of All-American Imhoff under the boards and a host
of defensive demons running all over the floor make the Bears nearly
unstoppable once they grab the lead. A 10-point California lead is
comparable to twice that much for most other teams.
It's not fun for a midwesterner to admit, but it looks like the
UPI's coaches are right. Come March 19, California will keep the
NCAA championship trophy in the San Franosco Bay area for the
fourth time in six years.

John Tidwell moved a step clos-
er to setting an all-time Michigan4
single season scoring record this
week as he tossed in 27 points
against Wisconsin to up his total
to 430 points.
Tidwell, who has led the team
in scoring throughout the cam-
paign, has three more games to
pick up the 30 points he needs to
equal the record of 460 set by
M. C. Burton last year. He needs
only 45 more to top the 900 mark
for his two seasons of varsity
If he continues to score at his
present rate he will top both
marks at Illinois next Monday.
As a result of the 28 point
splurge against Wisconsin, Lovell
Farris has tightened the gap be-
tween himself and Terry Miller in
the team scoring derby, behind
Farris now trails Miller by 31
points in total scoring over the 21
game route. The scrappy center
also leads the team in rebounds,
holding a commanding lead over
Tidwell who is second.
However burly Bob Brown is
close in the rebounds per game
department as he has pulled down
an average of nine per game,
while Farris has averaged slight-
ly more than 10.
