Youth
By ROGER ROSSITER
Michigan's chances for succes
in the 1971-72 dual meet wrestlin
season rested almost entirely o
youth, and the young wrestler
came through. Coach Rick Bay
charges chalked up nine wins an
a tie in thirteen outings, w h i
starting three freshmen and thre
sophomores.
After absorbing a 23-12 defea
at the hands of Penn State on the
road, the Wolverines reeled o
five straight victories over Pitt
burgh, Ohio U., Ohio State, North
western, and Indiana.
The first half of the seaso
gave Bay a good indication tha
his team would be one of th
best in the Big Ten. Names lik
Jim Brown Bill Davids, Ric
Neff, and Gary Ernst began 1
gain prominence along with estab
lished wrestlers Jerry Hubbard
Lon Harris and Mitch Mendryga
Michigan ran into some stiff
competition in the second halfo
the season, losing lopsided con
tests to Oklahoma State (35-8) at
Michigan State (25-6), two of ti
three best teams in the nation.
ton Lopsided wins were recorde
over Illinois, Minnesota and Wis
an consin, while Purdue was also co
,e quered 19-12. Probably the mos
important match of the season sa-
s' he Wolverines tie Iowa on thi
of road 15-15. The key to that matc
y. was an upset victory in the heavy
weight match by Ernst ov

paces
Hawkeye Jim Waseck, who was
ss undefeated.
g Michigan's overall record of 9-
n 3-1 was a slight improvement over
rs last year's 8-2-2 mark, especially
's when the strength of this year's
d opponents is considered.
e The team's three biggest winners
e were all underclassmen. Bill Dav-
ids heads the list with a 16-4 re-
at cord, followed by Jerry Hubbard,
e the defending Big Ten champion
ff at 150 pounds, with a 14-3 mark;
and freshman Jim Brown who was
h- 13-3-1. This trio was the heart
of the team all season long. If the
Wolverines wanted to win a giv-
in en match, these three grapplers
at had, to come through, and the
ie majority of the time they did.
:e Winning records were by no
k means foreign to the mat squad as
to seven other wrestlers compiled
b- better than .500 records. Neff is
d, first on this list with his 8-4 re-
l. cord, with Ernst following c 1 o s e

4

behind at 7-5-1. Ernst took over1
the heavyweight position at mid-
season after Rick Bolhouse, who
was 5-2-1, left the team for per-
sonal reasons.
Mendrygal, a junior, had an up
and down year, finishing with a
flurry for a 11-7 record. Mendry-
gal improved steadily in the lat-
ter stages of the year to give Bay
a steady performer at 158 pounds.
Harris, a senior, whom B a y
claims suffers from a lack of con-
fidence, was at times the m o s t
brilliant wrestler on the squad, and
at other times the greatest mys-
tery. Harris's 9-8 'record was not
indicative of his abilities, which at
times labeled him as one of the
best 190 pounders in the confer-
ence.
Two more freshmen also got
into the wining act, Bill Schuck
and Dave Curby. Schuck, w h o
took over the 142 pound slot after
Captain Mark King was injured,

finished the dual season with a
record of 6-5-2. C u r b y split his
time between the 177 and 190
brackets, going 3-3 in the form-
er and 4-3 in the latter.
The cne big question mark that
hangs over the entire season is
what the Wolverines would have
been' like had they not lost Bol-
house, Rob Huizenga, and Walt
Sexton for various reasons.
Huizenga would have filled
the 167 slot that was weak at best
all season. With Sexton around to
wrestle at 190, Harris could have
dropped down to 177 where he
would have been vastly more ef-
fective. Sexton's undefeated re-
cord in Big Ten duals last season
speaks for itself.
It is really difficult to say how
much their presence would have
shelped the Wolverines. But
wouldn't it have been interesting
to have found out?

In the upset of the collegiate
basketball weekend, Don Hayes
and Steve Newsome led a sec-
ond half scoring rampage as
Houston downed seventh-ranked
South Carolina, 95-85.
It was the Cougars' 43rd win
in 44 appearances in their new
home, Hofheinz Pavillon, which
opened in 1969, andtheir 11th
win in their last 12 starts.
Hayes scored 23 points, includ-
ing 12 in the last half, and New-
some scored 17 of his 19 points
in the second half to aid Hous-
ton (17-5) to overcome a 46-43
halftime deficit to win. The loss
snapped South Carolina's (17-4).
nine game winning streak.
Apparently underestimating the
strength of St. Peter's and caught
anticipating their meeting with
Marquette this coming Saturday,
the University of Detroit saw
t h e ir post - season tournament
hopes set back, losing 77-63.
The Titans, now 16-5, made 29
shots from the floor and only
five of 13 free throws, got into
foul trouble early and struggled
throughout most of the game.
St. Peter's guard Ted Marti-
niuk scored 40 pointsand ac-
counted for 14 of the Peacocks'
26 field goals. It was only St.
Peter's eighth win of the season
in 20 starts.
With Larry McNeill replacing
star center Jim Chones, who de-
fected to the pro ranks, the
fired-up Warriors ignited a sec-
ond half rally, enabling unbeaten
and second ranked Marquette to
down Creighton, 70-61.
Creighton was held without a

rebound in the first 13 minutes
of the second .half by the War-
riors, who were down by ten at
the half. McNeill scored 24 points.
With Bruin stars Henry Bibby,
Larry Farmer, and Larry Holly-
field threatening to f o11o w
Chomes' lead and jump to the
pros for the right price, number
one ranked UCLA remained un-
beaten, d a w n i n g Washington,
100-83.

Virginia was upset by Duke
much to the disgust of Coach
Bill Gibson, who commented,
"Our shooting was atrocious. It
was disgraceful the way we play-
ed." So disgusted with the 86-76
defeat was the Cavalier coach
that he also howled, "I'm dis-
couraged and disappointed at this
point. This is not how the game
of basketball was meant to be
played."

Thanks to Notre Dame's double
defeat at the hands of Denver, and
Michigan's series split with Wis-
consin, the Wolverine hockey team
now finds itself in its best shape
of the season.
With only four games remaining,
the Wolverines are currently tied
with Colorado for seventh place
in the WCHA standings.
The Irish, who host the Wolver-
ines next weekend, have now fallen
into sole possession of ninth place
and will need a two-game sweep
over Michigan to give them a good
shot at making the post season
playoffs.
After taking a 5-1 thrashing Fri-
day night, the Wolverines moved
back into the playoff race by out-
scoring the Badgers 64 Saturday.
The split dropped Wisconsin into
a tie for the conference lead w1h
Denver.

Also in the title picture is Mich-
igan State, which has now won
11 of its last 12 and eight straight
at home.
The Spartans host the Badgers
in what must be the key series
thus far this season next weekend.
