Tlinclads host relays
as track season opens

SEEK FOURTH BIG TEN WIN

Cagers meet hungry Gophers

!r

By DALE ARBOUR
Ten NCAA All-Americans, in-
cluding one world record holder,
will lead a field of 31 teams as
Michigan opens its 1971 indoor
track season, hosting the Mich-
igan Relays.
Highlighting the meet will be
the 60 yard dash featuring a
renewal of the traditional riv-
alry between Michigan State's
supersprinter Herb Washington
and Michigan standout Gene
Brown.
Washington is currently the
NCAA defending champ as well
as co-world record holder in that
event with a time of :05.9. Brown
turned in a best time of :06.0
last season. This meet begins
the fifth year of the rivalry that
stretches back to their high
school careers in Michigan.
One competitor who should
provide ample entertainment for
long jump fans is Bill Lightsey
of Kentucky. Lightsey was the
1970 indoor NCAA champion in
that event, copping the title with
a leap of 25-21/. His toughest
competition should come f r o m
George Gilchrist, a Michigan
freshman who had the best leap
in high school of 23-11%.
Still another rivalry will be in
the offing, this time on the in-
field, as Michigan's premier
shotputter, freshman S t e v e
Adams tangles with another

freshman standout in that event,
Jesse Stuart of Kentucky.
Stuart and Adams were t h e
two best high school s h o t-
putters in the nation last year
and Stuart unofficially bettered
the existing national mark with
a heave of 72 feet. Adams, of-
ficially the best prep shotput-
ter last year, had a best put of
66-2 feet.
The 70-yard high hurdle race
will be full of competition, led
by Godfrey Murray of Michi-
gan. As a freshman last ye a r,
Murray placed third in the Big
Ten Indoor Championships and
had a season best of :08.3 in this
event.
His closest competitors will be
freshman running mate M e 1
Reeves as well as John Mor-
rison of Michigan State. Mor-
rison has a career best time of
:08.4, while Reeves has a best
time of :08.5 recorded last year
as a senior in high school.
For those sadists who thrive
on the agonies of the long dis-
tance runner, there should be
fine opportunity for plenty of
satisfaction. Although both were
3000-meter steeplechasers out-
doors, Sid Sink (NCAA champ-
ion in that event) and Jerome
Leibenberg of Western Michigan
(second in the NCAA in that
event) are both capable of sub-
8:50 two-miles.
And if those sadists aren't
convinced by that fact, Paul
Lightfoot of the Ann Arbor
Track Cllub can possibly show
them how to do it. Last sea-
son. Lightfoot recorded an 8:41.1
in the two-mile event, the third
fastest two-mile at that time.
In keeping with a fine Mich-
igan tradition, there will be a
strong two-mile relay team en-
tered. This foursome will in-
clude two All-Americans f r o m
last pear's two-mile relay. Rick
Storrev and Eric Chapman.

CHECKMATE

State Street at Liberty

By MIKE TREBLIN
The Wolverines will be trying
to extend their Big Ten winning
streak to four games and main-
tain their unbeaten conference
record today as they invade the
home court of the Golden Go-
phers of Minnesota in what
could be their most crucial test
of the season.
According to Michigan coach
Orr, Michigan, winners in nine
of its last ten games, will be
facing its toughest competition
yet this year. "I can't believe
that they're 0-4, I'm sure this
will be our toughest game of the
year so far."
The Minnesota record is de-
ceiving. Although they are 0-4,
their last two games have been
hard fought and close. One was
a heartbreaking 1o s s in over-
time, the other a loss last week
to Ohio State by the score of
68-66.
The Gophers' strengths lie in
the experience of its four letter-
men: Captain Eric Hill and 01-
lie Shannon both guards, center,
Tom Masterson 6-8, and for-
ward Gerry Pyle 6-7. Minneso-
ta's big bonus of the year has
been the play of sophomore for-
ward Jim Brewer. According to
Minnesota coach Hanson, "Jim
is unquestionably one of t h e
outstanding first year men in
the entire country." This is
borne out by Brewer's lead in
most team statistics a n d his
poise which helps keep the de-
fense loose.
Through the fourteen games
Minnesota has played this sea-
son, Brewer has responded with
team highs in rebounds w i t h
195, total points with 256 and
average pointshper game of 13.9.
He has been high scorer in six
of the fourteen games and high
rebounder in twelve. He a 1 s o
holds season h i g h records in
m o s t field goals scored in a
game with 12 against Purdue
and most rebounds in a game
with 20 against Iowa State.
Brewer a n d teammates will
face a well balanced Michigan
squad led by sophomore sensa-
tiongHenry Wilmore, whose av-
erage going into the game is
24.9 overall, and an incredible
39.5 in Big Ten play. Together
with t e a m rebound leader
Brady, he forms the key to the
Wolverine offense. Through the
first twelve games of the season,
Brady has a total of 108 re-
bounds with at9erebound per
game average to lead the team
in both departments. His high

4

in rebounds, 20, w a s reached
against Indiana two weeks ago.
The Wolverine squad is com-
pleted with veterans Dan Fife
and Rod Ford with averages of
13.0 and 11.4 respectively, and
Wayne Grabiec who is damag-
ing to zone defenses with his
outside shooting.
Saturday's game figures to be
a close one whose outcome will
be determined on t h e back-
boards and by the number of
turnovers on the court. S a y s
Coach Hanson, "Our most im-
portant problem will be match-
ing up on defense."

Minnesota played its best de-
fensice game last week against
Ohio State and lost by only two
points. Michigan runs more
than O h i o State but Hanson
says he will not change his de-
fense substantially, h i s squad
will just have to "dig in harder
this time out."
Michigan's big problem will be
facing a tough Minnesota team
that is definitely due for- a win
on their home court. The Wol-
verine's road games are crucial.
Says Coach Orr, "we have to win
on the road if we are to remain
in this race."

HENRY WILMORE (25) shoots one over a Harvard defender
in a game won earlier this year by the Wolverines, 100-73.
Wilmore scored 27 points in that contest which is just over his
season average of 24.9. His conference mark is 39.5 points per game.

ST. LOUIS () - The St. Louis
Cardinals announced yesterday
that they have traded outfielder
Vic Davalillo and pitcher Nelson
Briles to the Pittsburgh Pirates in
exchange for centerfielder Matty
Alou and relief pitcher G e o r g e
Brunet.
Alou, 32, was National League
batting champion in 1966 with a
.342 average.
The 5-9, 160-pound outfielder
hit .297 in 1970 with the Eastern
Division champions of the Na-
tional League after averages of .338
in 1967, .332 in 1968 and .331 in
1969.
Brunet, 35, played with the
Washington Senators and Pitts-
burgh in 1980, posting an 8-6 re-
cord and a 4.42 earned run average
with the American League club
and a 1-1 record and earned run
average of 2.65 with the Pirates.
Brunet, a lefthander, has a ca-
reer record of 69 victories and 92
losses.
Briles, 27, who was hampered by
a pulled hamstring muscle in his
right leg in the early months of
the 1970 season, finished the sea-
son with a 6-7 record and a 6.22
earned run average. The right-
hander has a 61-54 lifetime record
and a 3.41 earned run average.
"We didn't trade on the basis
of Briles' performance last year,"
Brown said. "We wanted him for
what he's done the years before

when he went 14-5, 19-11, and 15-
13."
Davalillo, 34, was a mild sensa-
tion as a pinchhitter with the Car-
dinals last season. He tied a Na-
tional League record with 24 hits
in 73 times at bat as a pinchhit-
ter, getting eight doubles, three
triples and one home run.
His pinchhitting average for the
year was .329 and his overall aver-
age in 111 games was .311.
Cardinal General Manager Bing
Devine said the trade "actually
is a gambling sort of deal."

"We dislike giving up the two
players, particularly Briles who
has made fine contributions and
is young," Devine said. "But we
feel the deal is desirable because
of Alou's proven ability and his
production as an everyday player.
"Alou is being acquired for the
outfield where admittedly our best
young prospects are available.
"Our outfield looks like it will
consist of Alou in center, L ou
Brock in left and Jose Cardenal
in right."

The annual professional football
draft of top college talent ended
yesterday after 4442 players had
been chosen in 17 rounds stretch-

Dierdorf. end Paul Staroba, line-
backer Marty Huff, defensive

Harpring and Betts were both
picked by the American Confer-
ence's New York Jets. The one
top Wolverine missing from the
draft lists was defensive captain
and All-Big Ten lineman, Henry
Hill.
Defensive backs and running
backs proved to be the most
sought after commodities in the
draft, with 74 and 64 picked, re-
spectively.
Ohio State led the way in pro-
viding talent for the pros as a
total of thirteen Buckeyes were
drafted. Quarterback Rex Kern
was selected in the tenth round,
the twelvth quarterback drafted.
Kern's backup Ron Maciejowski
was chosen by the Chicago Bears
in the 15th round.
