Wolverine netters will ts
in NCAA indoor championships

For the first time this year,
Coach Johnny Orr of the Wol-
verine maplemen will be able
to start a center at center.
Ken Brady, the 6-10 pivotman
who has been hampered by bone
chips in his knee all year, will
anchor the Michigan front line
of John Lockard and Ernie
Johnson as the Wolverines take
to the court in search of their
fourth Big Ten victory against
one defeat.
The hoopsters play host to-
night to the Iowa Hawkeyes,
who last Sunday upset fifth
ranked South Carolina by a
91-85 margin.
The Hawkeyes, who led in
that game all the way, were
paced by 6-3 guard Rick Wil-
liams. Following in the footsteps
of the graduated Fred Brown,

the transfer from Fort Dodge
Junior college scored 40 points
against the Gamecocks hitting
on 15 of 19 from the floor.
Depending on which of the
two receives the starting nod,
either Wayne Grabiec or Dave
Hart will be assigned the task
of guarding Williams.
The Wolverine man-to-man
defense is tailored to stopping
the good long range shooter, and
Michigan's success against the
Hawkeyes will depend in large
part on their ability to contain
Williams from the outside.
Iowa is not lacking in inside
strength either. Kevin Kunnert,
the 7-0, 231 pound center has
been more than imposing so far
this year. In addition to snag-
ging 14.1 rebounds Der game,
the junior from Dubuque is the

Avery Brundage
AVERY BRUNDAGE is back on the warpath. The aged presi-
dent of the International Olympic Committee arrived in
Tokyo last night ;determined to root all traces of professional-
ism from the Winter Olympics, even if it means killing the
But while Brundage. is always screaming about commer-
cialism in sports, this time he might cause more than bad
publicity. He had decided that certain Olympic skiers should
not be eligible for the games because they display the name
brands of manufacturers on their skis. According to him this
makes them professionals and thus not eligible.
But the International Ski Federation says they are
eligible. And the ISF has said that it will not allow Brund-
age to ban athletes from the Olympics. Instead they will
pull out of the games and hold a World Skiing Champion-
ship of their own.
And the Japanese hosts have said they were planning to
hold the Olympics, not a World Championship and that the
skiers must stay.
So Brundage is in a bind. He wants to ban about 40 ath-
letes. The ski federation will pull out if he does and the Japa-
nese will be more than a little upset. And it might end the
entire Winter Olympics because several million dollars worth
of TV contracts are tied into the skiing events. Brundage might
like to think that athletics has nothing to do with money, but
the Olympics are expensive and without TV they are dead.
Actually the dispute is not new. Brundage brought it up*in
1968. The solution then was to grab the skis as soon as
competitors finished a race so that the name brand could not
be seen on the tube. For the summer Olympics he decided that
shoes must be made without any identifying marks because
he was upset about the rivalry between Puma and Adidas.
A similar step could end the dilemma again this year,
but thee is talk of just totally ignoring Brundage and his
rulings. And in the end this might be the best idea.
For the uninformed, Brundage is the last man in the world
who believes in the purity of sports. He thinks that the Olym-
pics must be totally untainted by commercialism. If he could,
Brundage would take the athletes back two millenia and have
them compete in the nude, the way the Greeks used to do it in
the Acropolis.
But unfortunately Mr. Peabody's time machine is out of
order and the Olympics must be held in the present. And
whether Brundage wants to admit it or not, commercialism
and professionalism are a part of the game. Most Olympic ath-
letes are professionals. If they aren't taking money from a
manufacturers they are taking it from a government.
Brundage tries to ignore the subsidies give nto most com-
petitors by their countries, but he refuses to condone money
from businessmen. But really there is no difference. The cash
from Head skis is the same color as that from the French
government. Either the athlete is a true amateur or not and
though Avery refuses to see it, there just aren't any amateurs
If a competitor is being subsidized by his government,
either with a soft job or in cash, he is a professional. Since;
its almost impossible to work and maintain the kind of
training schedule one needs to win in the Olympics the
vast majority of athletes are getting help from somewhere.
It's just that some of the envelopes are hidden better than
Brundage says that, "the Olympics are a sports event, not
a business enterprise." But like most fanatics, he is slightly
inconsistent. If the Olympics are not a business, then why does
he sell the TV rights to the networks for huge sums. If he is
allowed to take the money to stage the games, then the ath-
letes should be allowed to openly take money to eat during the
four years between games.
No one has ever claimed that the competitors are getting
rich from their activities. Their subsidies really aren't much
over the subsistence level. But if NBC can make a fortune off
the games then the athletes should be allowed to make a living.

more forwards 6-9 Jim Collins
and 6-8 Harold Sullinger. Neith-
er player has been spectacular
thus far though Collins is aver-
aging in double figures and both
are consistent on the boards.
Having won five of their last
six games, the Hawkeyes would
appear to have momentum on
their side. Iowa Coach Dick
Schultz commented, "Momen-
tum can be the most important
factor sometimes.. But with

Schultz is obviously inclined
to disregard Wilmore's poor first
half showing against Northwest-
ern last Saturday. In a first half
performance that Michigan
mentor Orr called "probably
Wilmore's worst half in his
Michigan career," Henry was
held scoreless until the waning
momeits when he picked up
three quick points.
Wilmore will start tonight's
game at guard, only the second
time he's been at that position
all season, last Saturday having
been the first. The switch, how-
every, was not the cause of Wil-
more's initially inept perform-
ance, as he started the game at
forward. In the second half,
which he spent exclusively in
the backcourt, Wilmore rebound-
ed to score 12 points.
Against the Wildcats, the
Wolverines played as good a sec-
ond half as they have all year.
Much of the improvement can
be attributed to Brady, who was
sharp both defensively and of-
fensively, though still somewhat
off oni his timing.
In addition, Brady's presence
allowed both Lockard and John-
son considerably more leeway to
take shots, which Johnson did
on his way to a 22-point per-

Four of Michigan's netters will
be testing their talents this week
against some of the top college
players in the nation when they
travel to Salt Lake City Thurs-
day for the start of the National
Collegiate Athletic Association's
Indoor Tennis Championship.
The single elimination singles
and doubles tournament will fea-
ture most of the top players

door team championships.
Top seeded will be John Gard-
ner from Southern Methodist,
and second seeded will be Stan-
ford sophomore Sandy Meyer,
Reigning National Junior Cham-
pion Raul Ramirez will be the
third seed, and he now plays for
Southern California.
NCAA Singles Champion, Jeff
Connors turned player this year
and will not compete, and NCAA
runner-up Roscoe Tanner will
be competing elsewhere.
The Wolverines entries will in-
clude Tim Ott,- freshmen Jeff
Miller and Jerry Karzen, and
sophomore Kevin Senich. Ott
was Michigan's number two
player last season, and Senich
played number five for the Wol-
verine's Big Ten Championship
Last season's number one and
three players, Joel Ross and
Dick Ravreby, will not be com-
peting in Salt Lake City. Ross

JOHN LOCKARD (45) outleaps Ohio State's 7-foot center Luke
Witte (34) to bang home a bucket in the two team's first meeting

opposition tonight prior to their rematch at Crisler Arena this
Saturday. The Bucks battle the unbeaten Minnesota Gophers in
Minneapolis, while the Wolverines face the Iowa Hawkeyes, victors
over fifth-ranked South Carolina last weekend.
