game, Eastern Michigan lost in a against Purdue after spraining his

thumb against Toledo. And in the
time he did play he was ineffective
due to the injury. The 6-4 junior
playmaker scored .19 against the
Rockets in the opener, hitting sev-
en of 15 from the field. His play-
ing status for tonight is doubtful.
The most potent member of the
Huron arsenal is super - soph
George Gervin. The lanky 6-7 De-
troiter, who leads the squad in
scoring with 61 points so far,
packs a mere 170 pounds on his
long frame. His lack of weight
poses problems, limiting his ability
to fight it out with the 'bigger
fellas' under the boards.
Eastern Coach James Dutcher
has said that Gervin is the best
sophomore he has ever coached.
And that includes three of his
athletes who have gone on to play
in the pros.
If Reason is unable to start at
guard, the Hurons just may move

Wolverine Ernie Johnson will be
assigned the task of guarding Ger-
vin unless Gervin does go to
guard, in which case Wayne Gra-
biec may take over. As a rule, how-
ever, "Johnson always draws the
tough defensive assignment," said
Coach Snowden.
Starting at center for Eastern
Michigan will be 6-6 senior, Earl
Dixon. Dixon played poorly against
Toledo, but last week against Pur-
due he pumped for 25 points and
13 rebounds.
Michigan will be starting, the
same five they've been going with
all year; that is, Wilmore and
Johnson at forward, John Lock-
ard at center, and Dave Hart and
Wayne Grabiec at the guards.
The Wolverine starters have
been spreading the scoring around
quite a bit as four of the five have
been in double figures in each of
the two games.
Overall, the game should be
fairly close, and the Wolverines'
ability to put it away early will
depend on shutting off Gervin.
As Coach Snowden aptly put the
game in its proper perspective,
"Last year we weren't sharp for
the game, coming off of the three
losses (to then top ten members
Notre Dame, Duke, and Kentucky).

they should walk off the court with
