One of the biggest games of the young Big Ten basket-
ball season will take place today in Columbus as the top two
teams of last year, Michigan and Ohio State, go at it with
the early conference leadership on the line.
The Wolverines boast a 2-0 league mark after victories
over Michigan State and Illinois, while the Buckeyes have
taken their only conference contest at Purdue.
One of the key factors in the game today will be the
return of Michigan's 6-10 center Ken Brady to the line-up.


Brady has been forced to sit
out the Wolverines' first
twelve contests this year with
an injured knee, and in his
absence Michigan has been a
mediocre 7-5.
Brady, coming off an injury, is
not expected to start and the
amount of time he sees on the
court will depend largely on how
well his knee holds up. If he is
able to play with decent mobility
for most of the game, it will be
a huge lift for the Wolverines,
who need the big center if they
are to make a serious run at the
Big Ten crown.

but Grahame made a brilliant save
as Gagnon went for the upper left

The Denver crowd was so elated
that the first of many deceased
chickens was thrown on the ice
from the balcony.
In the second period Denver built
the lead to 8-1 as the game be-
came totally embarrassing. The
Wolverines' only goal of the period
came on a fine backhand pass
from Randy Neal to Rick Mallette.

school stars. Both 6-7 center Terry
Thomhas, from Hazel Park, and
6-6 forward Jerry Guinane, from
Notre Dame, are averaging better
than 20 points a game. Other play-
ers slated to start against the
Baby Blue are 6-0 guards John
Riley and Jim McHugh, and 6-5
forward Sean Savage.
First-year Titan coach Tony Mc-!
Andrews expressed great respect
for Michigan's frosh. When asked
what type of defense he planned
to use against them, he immedi-
ately replied, "We'll just keep our
fingers crossed." Realizing, how-
ever, that this tactic alone would
not be enough to stop the Wolver-
ines, he went on to say that he
will probably use a basic man-to-
man coverage.


On the other hand, Michigan's
freshman team will be going after
their fifth win without a loss.
So far the Baby Blue have lived
up to all their expectations. They
have made 45.6 per cent of their
field goals, 71 per cent of their
foul shots, outrebounded opponents
54.8-45.8, and averaged a margin
of victory of 18 points.
Starting intoday's game will be
the same five who have started
in the previous four games. The
hottest Wolverines are the guards,
Joe Johnson and John Kantner.
The flashy Johnson is averaging
20.5 points per game and 53.3 per
cent from the field, while Kant-
ner's figcres are 13.8 and an amaz-
ing 62.1 per cent.
Campy Russell will be back at
his familiar forward position. As
predicted, he is leading Michigan's
attack carrying averages of 25
points and 13 rebounds per game.
Defensive ace Doug Ashworth is
the other forward, and is currently
averaging eigIgt points a game.
Joining Russell and Ashworth in
the frontcourt will be center C. J.
Kupec, a 9.5 scorer. Super-sub Bill
Ayler, sporting a 9.8 average, will
probably see plenty of action as

The big difference in the game
may be made however by two oth-
er players who are also still both-
ered, by injuries; the teams' re-
spective top scorers, Henry Wil-
more of Michigan and Al Horn-
yak of Ohio State.
Wilmore, still moving slower
than usual as a result of a knee
injury, has scored 21 and 17
points in the two Big Ten con-
tests, well below his average. The
Wolverines will be looking for a
big game out of their star for-
ward today.
Meanwhile Hornyak, still not
100 per cent following a heel in-
jury which forced him out of five
games, was recovered enough last
Saturday to score 28 points and

verine board strength will be the

Witte. Witte, OSU's number two
scorer behind Hornyak, has been

points in overall play.
A twisted knee which kept the
Buckeye giant out of practice ear-
lier in the week has improved, and
Witte should be at full strength
for this afternoon's contest. Witte
is also an excellent defensive play-
er, and his imposing presence in
the middle may pose a few prob-
lems for Michigan's offense.
In fact, it has been defense
which has been the strong point
not only of Witte, but of the en-.
tire Buckeye team this year.
Despite a touch of sluggishness
in the offense and a relatively low,
team shooting percentage (43 per
cent), Ohio State has been able
to come up with a 9-2 record on
the strength of their defensive
performance. The Buckeyes have
