Last season, the Indiana Hoo-
siers had all the makings of a
Big Ten championship team.
They had a solid squad plus
two of the best sophomores
around, high school teammates
George McGinnis and Steve
Downing, who teamed up to lead
Indianapolis Washington High
to a 31-0 record and the state
championship in 1969.
The Hoosiers started fast,
knocking off eventual confer-
ence champ Ohio , State, and
winning three straight until the
Wolverines burst. their bubble
with a 92-81 win in Ann Arbor.
But Indiana continued to
challenge the conference lead-
ers until a storm of racial con-
troversy erupted, and coach Lou
Watson walked out on the team.

The Hoosiers dropped three of
their last four games, and fin-
ished fourth with a 9-5 record.
Watson's resignation was oft-
en said to be the result of a per-
sonality conflict with prima
donna McGinnis. So Athletic
Director Bill Orwig and his
staff decided that what they
needed was a guy who could
handle the problems caused by
today's brand of college athlete.
So they grabbed Bob Knight,
a six-year veteran of West Point
where his teams compiled a very
impressive 102-50 record. He is
a disciplinarian along the lines
of Fred Taylor, for whom he
played at Ohio State in 1960-61
and 62.
But the big problem that ev-
eryone anticipated will never
come off, because McGinnis took
a fat bonus to sign with the
Indiana Pacers of the ABA, and
now Knight must work without
the Big Ten's leading scorer
(29.9) and rebounder (14.9).
But he does have a good nu-
cleus, including Downing, who
is finally released from McGin-
nis' shadow, senior Joby Wright,
John Ritter, Frank Wilson and
Bootsie White.
Wright, a 6-8, 220-pounder is
a good offensive player, averag-
ing 17.6 points per game last
year. But he is an especially
weak rebounder for a big man
(7.6 per game) and lacks great
defensive ability.
Lack of defense is one thing
that Knight will not tolerate.
His Army team for years has
been known as one of the top
defensive teams in the nation.
"We need a lot of work, espe-
cially on defense, but we're be-
ginning to show signs of im-
provement," Knight said. "De-
fense is my biggest concern
right now."
Downing. 6-8, 218 - pounds,
should come into his own under
Knight's tutelage. He averaged
9.6 points per game last year,
but managed to pull down 10.1
rebounds per Big Ten game.
Downing's best game last year
was the Hoosiers rematch with
Michigan, where he scored 28
points, ripped down 1 7 re-
bounds and blocked six shots,
to beat the Wolverines and
effectively kill their bid for the
Big Ten Championship.

INDIANA'S GEORGE McGINNIS hauls in a rebound against-
Michigan's Ken Brady in last year's meeting in Ann Arbor.
McGinnis, alas, will not be back this year, having found the lure
of pro money too great.

Ritter (6-5) will start at the
other forward this year after
playing guard as a sophomore
last year. He averaged 6.8
points per game and will be able
to usd his size 'to do more re-
The guards are 5-8 Bootsie
White and 6-3'' Frank Wilson,
who averaged 1.5 and 3.1 points
per game - respectively. Dave
Shepherd 1970's "Mr. Indiana
Basketball", and a promising
soph was injured in an auto ac-
cident and will be out of ac-
tion for some time.
Senior Rick Ford (6.5 points

per game) figures to be the
sixth man, and with his 6-4
height, he can swing between
forward and guard.
Besids Shepherd, the only
other sophomore on the 10-man
roster is 5-10 guard Steve Hein-
inger from Fort Wayne. He av-
eraged 19.8 for the Hoosier frosh
behind Shepherd's team lead-
ing 26.0.
Being defense-oriented this
year, Knight's Hoosiers will
play a more deliberate offen-
sive game. "We'll run when we
have to. but we'll set up if we
don't have the fast break."

Soplomore grapplers
pace weekend split

The Michigan matmen returned
home from the weekend wars ins
Pennsylvania with one victory
over Pittsburgh and one setback
at the hands of Penn State.
The 23-12 loss to the Nittany
Lions may have been a blessing in
disguise as it pulled the squad to-
gether for their invasion of Pitts-
The end result was a 23-17 tri-
umph that produced some out-
standing individual heroics as
well as the shifting of a major
Eastern power.
Wrestling mentor Rick Bay dis-
played disappointment in not win-
ning both meets but added "it

took courage to come back and
beat Pittsburgh."
Bay was most pleased with his
sophomore trio of Bill Davids.
Jerry Hubbard. and Rick Neff
who each came through with two
big victories.
Davids' performance was term-
ed by Bay as "outstanding, not
only because of his big win at
Penn State. but also because he
downed Pittsburgh's Randy Payne
an NCAA runner up two seasons
Hubbard avenged a pin 'tp
Pittsburgh last season by taking
a fall from his counterpart, John
Buzzatto. in 3:24. His perform-
ance v ulted him into the team
points leadership with nine.
Neff gained his starting posi-
tion when Davids was required to
wrestle at 126 lbs. for the injured
Jim Hagan. Bay needed no alibi
.for his choice as Neff won both
nights by 11-9 and 11-2 scores.
Bay was also particularly pleas-
ed with John Ryan's clutch pem r-
formance a a a i n s t Pitts-
burgh. Down 11-8 with only 1:02
remaining, Ryan reversed and
pinned his opponent, giving Mich-
igan six big points in what Bay
termed. "the turning point in the
Junior heavyweight Rick Bol-
house snd freshman 118 pounder
Jim Brown were the only other
point winners for the Michigan
Bolhous- drrw with Penn
State's tou-h Tra Lubert and
downed Pitt's Jim Calgogmini to
complete the Wolverine's victory
over the Panthers.
Double losses in 142, 158, 167,
and 190 pound classes were not
in Bay's plans, and he admitted
that tron2er performances are
essential in these divisions if the
Wolverines ara +o be a wrestling
pm nwr this s-9,on.
Bev rided "Wo have good
ri-th nd tqlhnt in the lower
w-i-hts. but have not shown much
