Illjfl
By AL SHACKELFORD
The Fighting Illini of Illinois,
always loaded with talent, have
burst from the blocks in typically
high style this season, copping
their first three games.
Last season the Illini blazed
through their first ten games with
an 8-2 mark, then folded like an
accordion and finished the season
at a ho-hum 11-12.
Nick Weatherspoon, a much-
publicized 6-6 junior forward, has
averaged 18.3 a game this season
in leading his squad to wins over
Butler (73-71), Oklahoma (70-65)
and South Dakota (96-56). Okla-
homa was rated the toughest of
the three, having been tabbed by
many as this year's probable Big
Eight front-runner:
Weatherspoon teams with 6-6
Nick Conner to give the Illini solid
scoring in the front line. Conner
has averaged 16 points a game

seek
while clearing just over ten re-
bounds.
While Weatherspoon is un-
doubtedly one of the Big Ten's
premier players, he hardly rates
the All-America buildup given him
by Illinois publicity moguls. The
Spoon has been shooting a puny
.356 from the field so far this
season, nothing that will make
Henry Wilmore or Jim Chones
quiver with fear.
Sophomore Bill Morris mucked
through summer school to gain
eligibility and the center spot for
Illinois; so far his stats of ten
points and eight rebounds a game
haven't lived up to his predicted
potential. The 6-9 Morris came to
Champaign from Beaumont High
in St. Louis, where he was a
schoolboy All-America and scored
51 points in a single game.
Another sophomore, 6-4 Garvin

imp rove

Roberson, mans one guard spot
and has been scoring at a pace of
seven points a game. A split end
on the Illinois football team, Ro-
berson may take a while to round
into shape for basketball. He is
judged a fine shooter (61 per cent
from the floor so far) and a su-
perb rebounder for a guard.
The lone senior in the starting
lineup is 6-3 guard Jim Krelle
who is peppering away at a 15.3
pace with a 62 per cent shooting
average. Krelle is the floor leader
and almost single-handedly de-
stroyed Oklahoma with an unbe-
lievable shooting performance.
Krelle hit all eight of his char-
ity tosses and eight of nine floor
shots for a total of 24 points, and

come in with either 6-4 C. J.
Schroeder or 6-2 Larry Cohen at
aard and 6-6 Jed Foster up front.
Schro der has been the leading
illini sub so far. scoring 14 points
The main strength of Illinois
seems to be their aggressive de-
f nse, which has allowed an aver.:

opener. then clamped a tight press
on the Bulldogs and 'edged past
them for a 73-71 win.

INSURANCE
FOR FRESHMEN!
That is what you could call ARMY ROTC when. you
are not sure about the future. And since you don't
have your draft number or a college deferment,
your future is uncertain, But you can receive a de-
ferment by joining the Army ROTC at the University
of Michigan. The premium on this type of insurance
is cheap as it only costs you time and very little of
that. Freshmen only attend ROTC classes one hour a
week each semester while sophomores attend two
hours a week each semester.
Another nice thing should consider. You don't incure
an obligation during those first two years but you
do receive a draft deferment. For those of you who
failed to take advantage of this protection in the
fall, the Army ROTC department at the University
of Michigan is now offering a condensed version of
the freshman yeor. It is now possible to complete
the entire freshman year progrom during the Winter
Term by attending ROTC classes two hours a week.
It doesn't cost a thing to find out all the facts so
give us a call (764-2400) or visit the Army ROTC at
North Hall on the University of Michigan campus.
Army ROTC. The more you look
at it, the better it looks.
