Cage r
By ELLIOT LEGOW
Coming off an extremely im-
pressive trouncing of Indiana's
Hoosiers and now generally rat-
ed a top contender for the Big
Ten cage crown, Michigan's
basketball team journeys to
Northwestern tonight to m e e t
the not so potent Wildcats.
While Michigan sits at the top
of the Big Ten standings as one
of four undefeated teams, the
Wildcats hold the cellar as one
of the three teams yet to win in
conference play.
Losses to contenders Indiana
and Purdue as well as to Wis-
consin give Northwestern a 0-3
mark in conference play a n d
have pushed them down to 4-9
overall. The Wildcats, like Mich-
igan, start two sophomores and
will have juniors at all other
starting positions.
But unlike Michigan none of
the Wildcat sophs h a s super
ability, and unfortunately f o r
Coach Brad Snyder's team, the
same can be said of the rest of
the lineup.
Of course any team can beat
any other team, and Northwest-
ern does hold a 4-2 record on
its home court, but it would take
more than good luck for the
Wildcats to get by Michigan's
much faster, taller, and better
shooting team.
Snyder admits that this year's
Wildcats are not a great assem-
blage. "Our guys don't have a
great deal of talent," he admits.
Snyder also knows that his team
will be hard-pressed to keep up
with Michigan's fast breaking
attack.
"We know they'll be flying at
us, and we'll have to stop the
fast break to stay with them."
Snyder says, while adding that
"speed is a disadvantage" for
the Wildcats.
The other worry Snyder has
about Michigan is the Wolver-
ine's vastly improved board
game which, led by big K e n

attack

Brady, has out-rebounded Mich-
igan opponents for the season.
To try to match the 6-9
Brady Northwestern will counter
with its own 6-9 center Barry
Hentz, who has been something
of a disappointment to the
Wildcats so far this season.
' The Wildcats said before the
season that "Hentz is the key to
hopes for a winning season."
Hentz' performances to date, a
9.0 scoring average overall and
4.0 in the Big Ten, while start-
ing only occasionally, show that
he has failed to fulfill his key
role.
Starting Hentz at the pivot
also means that the Wildcats
will be sacrificing speed by
playing regular center Barry
Moran at one forward in place
of Steve "Roadrunner" Berg.
Moran, who leads the Wild-
cats in rebounding and is sec-
ond in scoring with a 18.0 aver-
age is the only regular b a c k
from last season's 9-15 team.
Starters Dale Kelley, Don Ad-
ams,tand Jim Sarno are all gone
and have been replaced by play-
ers with little or no varsity ex-
perience.

Junior Ron Shoger, a good
outside shooting guard, leads
the Wildcat scorers with an
18.5 average and is assisted from
the outside by sophomore Mark
Sibley who averages 15.3.
Inside, along with Hentz and
Moran, will be another sopho-
more. 6-3 Rich Sund, who holds
a 6.6 average. Besides B e r g,
senior Don Crandall is available
to spell the starting forwards,
and Perry Ludy may see some
action at guard.
Michigan's young team must
be wary of a letdown, but has
both the ability and desire to
overwhelm the Wildcats.
Super sophomore f o r w a r d
Henry Wilmore said after last
Saturday's big win over Indiana,
"we'll be ready for Northwest-
ern," and coach Johnny Orr em-
phasizes the importance of this
road game. "We have to win on
the road if we are to remain in
this race," Orr explains.
Wilmore leads a well-balanc-
ed Wolverine scoring attack
with a 24.9 average in all
games, and leads the Big Ten
scoring derby with a 39.5 mark
for two conference encounters.

Snyder says that the Wildcats'
most difficult task will be "hold-
ing Wilmore to a respectable to-
tal." To achieve this. the Wild-
cats will start in a man for
man defense. but Snyder hints
at the possibility of switching
into a zone to try to contain
Wilmore.
Although Wilmore has re-
ceived m o s t of the publicity.
Michigan's big improvement this
season has been based on an ov-
erall improved squad. Brady has
b e e n important to Michigan's
attack with his rebounding and
helps to key the fast break.
Against a much bigger Indi-
ana team last week, Brady pull-
ed off 20 rebounds and scored
18 points in his best personal
performance.
Balancing the inside attack
are the Wolverine's strong out-
side shooters, guards Dan Fife
and Wayne Grabiec and for-
ward Rod Ford. All three are
averaging in double figures and
can make life miserable for a
team that throws a zone against
Michigan.

11IEFT PITTSBURGH:
Ailing matmen face tough test

By TIM OBOJSKI
Michigan's cool, calculating,
and callow wrestling s q u a d
will struggle to rise to its feet
today at Pittsburg, after being
dropped to the canvas for the
first time last week.
That defeat to Northwestern,
which Coach Rick Bay termed
.."a real blow, probably the most
bitter defeat I've ever felt,"
came as a result of two Wol-
verine grapplers being unable

to continue their matches due
to injuries.
The two, 142 lb. Mark King
and 190 lb. Walt Sexton, will
not wrestle today.
King, who strained his neck,
may be able to compete next
week, but Sexton will be out of
action for two or three weeks
with a torn shoulder muscle.
This forces Bay to alter 60
per cent of his lineup, a move
which couldn't have been more
inopportune. Almost all of the
team that beat the Wolverines
last year and finished ahead
of them in the national tourna-
ment is back, which Bay rates as
"damn tough, the best team
we've met so far.''
For Michigan, captain Jerry
Hoddy will lead off as usual at
118 lbs. Freshman Bill Davids
will be at 126 lbs. in his col-
legiate debut. Jim Hagen w ill
wrestle at 134 lbs., his first
match at that weight, and Rick
Neff likewise at 142 lbs.
Jerry Hubbard and M i t c h
Mendrygal will occupy t h e i r

customary slots at 150 lbs. and
158 lbs., respectively. To m
Quinn and Bob Huizenga will be
at 167 lbs. and 177 lbs., the de-
cision as to who will wrestle
where not coming until just
prior to the 167 lb. bout. Ther-
lon Harris will move up a class
to 190 lbs., and Rick Bolhouse
will remain at heavyweight.
Pittsburg will counter Mich-
igan's makeshift lineup with a
formidable array of sinew.
Among them are the Pa y ne
brothers: sophomore R a n d y,
who as a freshman was a run-
ner-up in the NCAA tourna-
ment, and senior Mark, a form-
er Eastern Intercollegiate cham-
pion. Senior Bob Kuhn, sixth
in the NCAA tournament 1 a s t
year; and freshman John Chat-
man, one of the most sought-
after high-schoolers in the na-
tion are also tough.
This is by far the Wolverine's
toughest test to date, but Bay
believes, "If we wrestle well,
we'll beat Pittsburgh. We'll see
what type of character t h i s
squad has."

By The Associated Press
0 SPRINGFIELD, Mass.-Bob Cousy and Bob Pettit, two of pro
basketball's all-time greats, and the late Abe Saperstein, founder of
the Harlem Globetrotters, have been elected to the National Basketball
Hall of Fame.
Cousy, Pettit and Saperstein were elected by the Hall of Fame's
13-man Honors Committee from a list of 24 nominees.
Cousy and Pettit both were eligible for the first time this year
as a result of a committee action reducing from 10 to five years the
waiting period for a player after retirement.
Saperstein, who died in 1966, was voted into the shrine as a con-
tributor to the game.
4 WASHINGTON-Charley Winner, fired as head coach of the
St. Louis Cardinals at the close of the 1970 National Football League
season, has been named a defensive coach of the Washington Red-
skins, the club announced yesterday.
The hiring of Winner by Head Coach George Allen completes the
seven-man staff of the former Los Angeles Rams' mentor.
0 BALTIMORE - John Unitas of the Baltimore Colts has been
sued for separate maintenance in a petition filed by his wife which
alleges adultery by the quarterback great.
Unitas, who directed the Colts to the 1970 American Football Con-
ference championship and suffered injured ribs as Baltimore won the
Super Bowl title in a game with Dallas, has until Feb. 16 to respond
