Basketball, University of Detroit style,
means discipline and a dedication to win-
ning. Losing is the same as not having
played the game at all.
Much of the U. of D. winning philosophy
was established by the Bob Calihan coach-
ing dynasty, which lasted for 21 years and
ended in 1969 when he decided to relinquish
his, coaching duties to Jim Harding, and
become Detroit's athletic director.
Harding,, enjoying his third season as a
coach of the Titans, has one of the best
overall coaching records of anyone in the
country. He ran up a phenomenal 107-23
record coaching high school teams and, in
his first college season, posted a 16-8 re-
cord, guiding Loyola of New Orleans to
an appearance in the 1959 NCAA tourna-
ment.
Harding moved from Loyola to Gannon
College 1n Erie, Pa. where he twice en-
gineered them into the National College
Division top ten and a, 56-9 record during
his three year stay. In 1966, he was named
college coach of the year in Pennsylvania.'
After a year at LaSalle in which he
posted a 20-8 record' and another NCAA

title tournament appearance, Harding took
the head coaching job with the Minnesota
Pipers (now the Pittsburgh Condors) of
the American Basketball Association. He
led thy; Pipers to first place (21-11) and
was chosen ABA All Star Coach in 1968.
Taking over the Titans for the 1969-70
season, Harding ran up a 7-18 record in a.
rebuilding year. In his second season he
came 'up with a winning team (14-12)
despiteunumerous player-coach conflicts.
The player difficulties of the past have
apparently been resolved and things have
gone smoothly this season.
With a record of 16-5 this season, Hard-
ing has turned things around at the Jes-
uit university, where everyone waits in
anticipation of Harding's first invitation
to the National Invitation Tournament in
New York's Madison Square Garden next
month.
Harding, however, fears that "our loss to
St. Peter's in the Garden last weekend,
in our poorest showing of the year, may
jeopardize our invitation to the NIT. Every-
thing could depend on our home meeting
with Marquette this Saturday."
In their first meeting with Marquette

in Milwaukee back in January, the Titans
were nipped by the second-ranked War-
riore 68-66. The game was marred by an
unusual number of turnovers by each team,
Detroit with 21 and Marquette with 18.
When asked how he intended to play
the Warriors in their crucial meeting Sa-
turday, Harding replied, "It's too late in
the year to make any change. We'll play
them the acme as befor#."
This season the Titans are playing t h e
Harding single-post offense in the fore-
court with most of the action centering
around guard Frank Russell and forward
Bill Pleas.
Pleas, a transfer from Lamulle, is the
team's leading rebounder with 12.4 grabs
per game and is second in scoring with
a game average ot 15.8 points.
Both Russell and Pleas were named to
the Motor City Tournament all-star team.
Other Titans averaging in double figures
are Tom Marsh (11.9) and Gerald Smith
(10.9).
As a team the Titans are averaging 76.9
points a game offensively, while their
man-to-man defense is ranked 11th in the
nation allowing 65.9 points a game.

U ef M Students,

WOLVERINES IMPRESSIVE:
Senich beacons Blue netters

13

by RANDY PHILLIPS
Neairy dominating the tourna-
ment, Michigan's netters c a m e
away, from last weekend's Mid-
! west Indoor Championships feel-
ing pretty good.
Although none of the seven Wol-
verine players competing were
seeded, Kevin Senich pushed his
way into the finals before losing
to the tourney favorite and two
other netters made it to the quar-
terfinals.
But the icing on the cake came
when all three Michigan doubles,
duos waded through the competi-
ion to reach the semi-finals. And
then the team of Senich and Jer-
ry Karzen brought home the doub-
les crown in an all-Michigan final.
Lenich was clearly the star of
the show as he easily upset third-
seeded Winn Irwin in the quarter-
finals in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4. He
then upset Columbia's number-one
player, Robert Binns, in decisive
fashion, .6-4, 6-1 before succumb-
ing to flick Johnson in the finals
in a tough set loss 6-3, 4-6, 7-5.
Johnson had been r nked third in
the midwest last ye while Irwia
was sixthd..
Senich then. teamed up with Kar-

zen to take the doubles title from
teammates Tim Ott and Jeff Mil-
ler, 6-3, 7-6. In the quarterfinals
the Senich-Karzen team did away
with the top-ranked duo of Mike
Ducey and Irwin, 6-4, 6-4. Ott1
and Miller had reached the finals
on the basis of a two-set tie break-
er win over Wolverines Dick Rav-
reby and Joel Ross.,
Michigan coach Brian Eisner
was quite excited about the tourn-
ament results, because this com-
petition at Cleveland featured the
best amateur players in the Mid-
west.
Eisner remarked, "Just the sing-
les results would have made it a
successful tournament, but with
the doubles it was even more de-
vastating."
Senich's strong showing w a s
somewhat unexpected since he
played at five singles last year
and is still playing behind Miller,
Ross, and Ravreby at present. Bat
Eisner was not too surprised:
"Kevin has made that kind of
progress; he's had a number of
fine challenge match wins in pra c-

tice, and he really had an out-
standing tournament."
As spring nears, the' Wolverine
netters are switching into high
gear. The second annual Varsity-
Alumni match will be held Satur-
day at the Huron Valley Tennis
Club in Dixboro.
Several outstanding former Wol-
verine players are slated to chal-
lenge this season's squad, headed
by former three-time Big Ten
champ Brian Marcus. Marcus
ranked first in the Midwest for
two years prior to this season.
The competition should be cse
as in last year's match, and the
action begins at 1 p.m.
Bllboaird
The Michigan rugby' football
club is holding practices in Yost
Field House every Tuesday and
Thursday evening between 9-11.
Anyone who is interested in
playing, whether you're exper.
ienced or desiring to learn the
game, is 'urged to attend.
