who made champions out of soph-
omores at UCLA, was selected
Thursday The Associated Press
college basketball Coach of the
Year in 1971-72.
Wooden won his fifth coach-:
of-the-year honor in a season
that he wasn't supposed to.
The Bruins' Quiet Man, whoI
lost four of his starters from last
year's national champions, won
the Pacific-8 title and 26 straight
regular-season games.
He did it this year with Bill

Walton, a first-year center who
was named to The Associated
Press All-America team. Wooden,
who generally places players in
the All-America bracket, also had
another in Henry Bibby, the sen-
ior guard who made the second
"team.
Wooden, who won coach-of-the-
year honors in 1964, 1967, 1969
and 1970, was a runaway this time.
In nationwide voting by sports
writers and broadcasters, he poll-

runners-up combined.

for this occasion than any other.
But Michigan should be ready.
They have held a full week of
heavy outdoor practice with num-
erous conditioning drills to ready
themselves for the opener. For
this early in the season, the play-
ers seem to be in good shape.
"We've come up with some new
drills this spring that should in-
crease our endurance and stamia,"
said Chuck Drukis, club president.
"Too often in the past we have
done straight roadwork which
causes a loss of interest."
Many of the injuries that ham-
pered the ruggers late in the fall
season have healed over the
winter.
Dick Moon, the new team cap-
tain, suffered a severely wrenched
knee last fall but has worked his
way back into shape.
The Blue team forwards have
increased in size and strength,
and hope to prove that they are
also quick.
The front row will consist of

cient speed to recapture the ball
in loose rucks.
Michigan's one failure in the
past has been the lack of aggres-
siveness and endurance in the
loose rucks. It becomes very dif-
ficult to score when the other
team is set. Thus the quality of
the loose play will determine the
difference between the winner and
the loser, and the personnel make-
up of the scrum in future fixtures.
The backs wil lhe the same as
last fall except for one notable
feature, the addition of Dave Os-
born. Osborn will be making his
first appearance for Michigan
since transfering from Berkshire
College in England. Osborn has
played for both Berkshire and
Barnstable, a city team, and
should add invaluable depth and
experience to the Blue backs.
The other backs will be Cleland
Child at scrum half, Richard
"Golden Foot" Thompson at inside
center, Terry Larrimer at outside
center, and Peter Hooper and Ron
Smith at the wings. Thompson will
also do the kicking.
Moon will round out the back-
field at fullback.
"Our backs have played together
a full season with the exception
of Osborn," said Drukis. "They
have the ability and quickness to
strike from anywhere on the field
if our forwards can muscle the
balls to them."
The Gold team will also be re-
turning with a veteran lineup
spiced with a few rookies.
Notre Dame, who along with
Michigan have accepted tourna-
ment bids to the Washington Col-
legiate Nationals, will be playing
their second game of the spring
campaign after a victory last
weekend.
"We're ready physically," con-
cluded Drukis, "I just hope we're
ready mentally."
