PHOENIX, Ariz. P)-Baseball's
trading marketplace broke loose
yesterday with Los Angeles head-
lining a steady stream of deals as
separate transactions brought su-
perstar Frank Robinson to the
Dodgers and sent power hitter
Richie Allen to the Chicago White'
Sox.
The Baltimore Orioles sent the:
aging Robinson and left-handed
reliever Pete Richert to Los An-
geles in exchange for four young
players-pitchers Doyle Alexander
and Bobby O'Brien, catcher Sergio
Robles and outfielder first baseman
Royle Stillman.
At the same time, the Dodgers
swapped the controversial Allen to
the White Sox for left-handed
pitcher Tommy John and infielder
Steve Huntz.
The Detroit Tigers acquired
catcher Tom Haller from the Dod-
gers for an undisclosed sum and
Flyers'
Braves rallied in the fourth quar-
ter on the unerring. shooting of

Eight transactions yesterday in-

In other deals, Houston sent first
baseman John Mayberry and in-
fielder Dave Grangaard to Kansas
City for pitchers Jim York and
Lance Clemons; Atlanta swapped
catchers with Texas, sending Hal
King to the new Rangers for Paul
Casanova.
Texas was also involved in a
three way exchange with Cleveland
and New York, sending infielder
Bernie Allen to the Yankees in
exchange for lefthanders Terry
Ley and Gary Jones and then in-
cluding the two pitchers with out-
fielder Del Unser and left-handed
Denny Riddleberger to Cleveland
for outfielder Roy Foster, catcher
Ken Suarez and pitchers Mile Paul
and Rich Hand.
After the early activity, the
White Sox made another trade,
shipping infielder Rich McKinney
to the New YorkhYankees for right-
hander Stan Bahnsen.
But the Dodger transactions eas-
ily overshadowed all of the other
trades. In the deal with the Orioles,

ball's top stars in Robinson. Now
36, Frank had been rumored to be
available for some time. But it
took the right package of young
talent to lure him away from
Baltimore.
"What we've done is to make
a deal to insure our future," said
Baltimore Manager Earl Weaver.
"We've been hesitant to deal Frank
-for four years we've been hesi-
tant-but we felt with our outfield
depth that we could afford it
better now."
Robinson, the only player in his-
tory ever to win the Most Valuable
Player Award in both leagues-he
won it in the National League in
1961 and in the American with
Baltimore in 1966 when he captured
the Triple Crown-hit .281 for the
Orioles last year. His 28 homers
gave him a career total of 503 in
16 big league seasons, the last six
with Baltimore.
He led the Orioles to four Ameri-
can League pennants and two:
world championships after coming
over from the Reds following the
1965 season.
In exchange for him and Richert;

O'Brien was 2-2 with the Dodgers
and 3-5 with Spokane. Robles bat-
ted .265 with Spokane and Stillman
hit .267 with Albuquerque of the
Texas League last season.
Asked if he thought the Orioles
might be criticized for surrender-
ing Robinson for a quartet of little
known names, Weaver grinned.
"They'll probably explain those,
names in years to come," the
Orioles manager said.
Even after trading Robinson, the
AL champion Orioles still have
three top outfielders, Don Buford,
Paul Blair and Merv Rettenmund,
along with an outstanding young
prospect, Don Baylor, coming up
from the minors, and holdovers

TORONTO - The

Buffalo and Smith 21.

By JIM EPSTEIN
How long has it been since a
Big Ten basketball team has
fielded a starting five averaging
6-1, 167?
Didn't such diminutive squads
die out with the two hand set
shot? If so, Gus Ganakas' Mich-
igan State cagers are a throw-
back.!
The 1971 Spartans will start a
front line of 6-7, 6-5, and 6-2, and
complement them with a back-
court of 5-11 and 5-5, making
them one of the smallest major
college teams in the nation.
The team is built around 6-7
Bill Kilgore at the pivot. Kilgore
averaged 14.2 points and 12.8 re-
bounds as a sophomore in 1970
and the survival of the Spartans
depends on Kilgore's continued
success on the boards.
The forwards, Pat Miller and
Brian Breslin, despite their lack
of size averaged nine rebounds
between them last season but
constitute a definite weak spot
on the team. Another forward in
the picture is 6-7 junior college
transfer Allen Smith. Ganakas
plans on working Smith into the
starting lineup eventually and
shifting Miller to the backcourt
where his 6-2 stature would be
more at home.
In the backcourt Ganakas will
start Mike Robinson, who may
well be the best sophomore in the
conference. Robinson averaged
33.8 points per game as a fresh-
man last year and the Spartans
plan to use him as their big gun
on offense.
Ganakas compared Robinson to
Rudy Benjamin, his hot shooting
guard from last year's squad.
"Benjamin needed the ball to be
great, but Robinson can be great
without the ball", said Ganakas.
At best, however, Robinson is

not a playmaking guard, he can't'
run the floor game. Gan'akas' big
dilemma this 'season has been
finding someone who can.
At first he experimented with
Miller, but that move didn't work
out, so Miller moved back to the
frontcourt. Tyrone Lewis, a pro-
mising sophomore was tried, but
he was too rough around the
edges for Ganakas' liking,
His last alternative was to use
his son Gary, whose biggest draw
back is his height; he is only 5-5.
His second biggest drawback is
that he is the coach's son. The
Spartan fans have been giving the
minute guard a hard time from
the start, as they suspected nepo-
tism as the underlying reason for
the younger Ganakas' use.
Both Ganakases have been re-
ceiving flak from the East Lan-
sing partisans, and at least the
elder one saw it coming. "I've
tried not to play Gary because he
is my son. He is going to be

laughed at, he is going to be ridi-
culed, he is going to be booed."
In reserve at forward the Spar-
tans have two year starter Ron
Gutkowski, a 6-6 forward who
has averaged 8 points a game over
two seasons.
Jeff IVanderlende, who had been
counted on prior to the season,
has decided to 'quit competitive
basketball, and Jim Sheretta and
Brad Van Pelt are out for a good
period of time with injury, leav-
ing the Spartans with very little
depth.
The Michigan State team can
be expected to be centered around
Kilgore and Robinson, both high-
ly competitive at their positions.
However, the other three starters
seem to ticket the Spartans for a
season much like last year, when
tlpey finished at 10-14. But a first
division finish in the Big Ten is
not out of the question if Lewis
and Smith are able to step in and
do a good job before the season
is too far advanced.

UP FROM MEDIOCRITY
Gophers aim for winning year

By BOB ANDREWS
Under the reins of new head coach Bill Mus-
selman, the Minnesota Gophers are prepared to
arise from the levels of mediocrity which plagued
them during the 1970-71 season.
Musselman expects to see a vast improvement
over last year's 11-13 record (which included only
five wins in 14 Big Ten confrontations) saying,
"at least I hope we are better than a .500 team.
If not, a lot of people will be greatly disappointed,
mostly me."
With the departure of guard Ollie Shanon and
Eric Hill, one'of the keys to the success of the
team will be the performance of junior Jim
Brewer. Brewer, 6-8, had a great sophomore sea-
son as he averaged 16.6 points a game (which was
third behind Shannon, 20.5, and Hill, 16.8) and
led the' team in rebounds with 13.8 a contest.
Despite his importance to the Gophers, Brewer
was suspended by Musselman on the grounds that
he wasn't giving 100 per cent.
However, Brewer continued to come to prac-
tice, and last week, at the sixth annual Big Ten
basketball press conference, Musselman added,.
"Brewer has been reinstated because he was giv-
ing his 100 per cent in practice." So as it stands
now, Brewer will be playing - a good thing for
the Gophers.
Musselman employs a one guard, well disci-
plined style of offense. It consists of a 1-3-1 for-
mation, including: a high post man, a right wing,
left wing and low post man (all of whom will be
forwards) as well as the point man - who will
be the only guard.
At the high post will be Brewer, who in addi-
tion to his fine shooting and rebounding ability,
has, in the words of Musselman, "great defensive
timing and speed.
At the three forward positions will be Ron
Behagen, a 6-9 junior for New York City (left
wing), Clyde Turner, a 6-8 junior (right wing),
and Marvin "Corky" Taylor, a 6-9 junior (low
post).

Behagen, a junior college transfer from South-
ern Idaho, will add greater scoring and rebound-
ing strength to the Gophers as he averaged 24
points and 13 rebounds a game. While Brewer is
most devastating with his inside shots, Behagen
is dangerous from the outside.
The other wing, Turner, is a junior college
transfer as well. At Robert Morris Junior College,
Turner popped in 28 points as well as grabbing
14 rebounds a game.
However, Musselman insists the real key to
the offense in the development of Corky Taylor.
Taylor was only a part time starter for the Go-
phers last season due to a knee injury, but, ac-
cording to Musselman, "he's the most improved
player in practice". Taylor is also rated as an
excellent rebounder, and the comeback of Taylor,
as well as the addition of Behagen and Turner
will give Minnesota strong off the boards.
At the point will be sophomore Keith Young.
Young led the Gopher frosh in scoring last sea-
son with a 17.2 average. Should Young have any
problems, Musselman will play Bob Nix, a 6-3
junior.
Nix, yet another junior college transferee, shows
fine shooting form, but his lack of speed and
shaky defensive play has kept him on the bench.
Other reserves include: Captain Bob Murphy, a
6-2 senior guard, who Musselman regards as his
seventh or eighth man due to his lack of de-
fensive spark, 6,2 senior guard Steve Palmer, 6-0
junior guard Roger Arnold, 6-4 forward Steve
Ormiston and 6-4 guard Greg Troland.
Despite the fine scoring punch exhibited by
the Gophers, Musselman feels that it will be the
defensive performance that decides his team's
success. He insists, "if you have a strong defense,
you have something to fall back on when you
miss four shots in a row".
With the fine defensive potential shown by
Young and Brewer, Musselman feels his squad
has the necessary ingredients to go places this
year and become a factor to be reckoned with in
the Big Ten.
