Thinclads to battle
for conference title




By The Associated Press
DETROIT - Jeff Mullins hit a
4basket and a free throw in the final1
39 seconds and veteran center Nate'
Thurmond scored a career high of
43 points last night as San Fran-
cisco rallied in the final minutes to
hand Detroit a 117-115 loss in a
National Basketball Association
5 The Warriors, who had lost nine
of their rprevious 12 games, came
alive after trailing 103-93, with
Thurmond and Jerry Lucas lead-
ing the way. They finally went'
ahead, 108-107 with 2:25 remaining.
After the lead exchanged eight
times, San Francisco went in front
to stay on Mullins' layup with 39
seconds remaining.
Dave Bing had 32 points and
Jimmy Walker 28 for Detroit.
Knicks romp

chere and Bill Bradley, both shoot-
ing mostly from outside, netted 11
points each in the final quarter to
lift New York over Cincinnati 125-I
105 last night in a National Basket-
ball Association game.
The Knicks, hitting 55 per cent
from the field for the contest,
erupted for 39 points in the final
period after leading by only 86-79
at the three-quarter mark.
The Royals, behind hot-shooting
Flynn Robinson wound up with 29
points, closed the gap to 80-79 late
in the third period but DeBuss-
chere hit a jump shot and the

PITTSBURGH - St. Louis Blues
scored two goals midway in the
third.period to lift, them to a 5-5
tie withhthe Pittsburgh Penguins
last night in a National Hockey
League action game.
The Penguins had gone ahead 6-3
on goals by Jean Pronovost and
Nick Harbaruk after defenseman
Carl Brewer's first goal of the sea-
son had tied the score at 3-3 for
the Blues.i
But Gary Sabourin narrowed
Pittsburgh's lead to 5-4 and then
Gary Unger's second goal of the
night tied it again for St. Louis.

While most students take their
spring break, the Michigan track
squad will enjoy a trip to warm
and sunny Madison, wvhere t h e
Big Ten Indoor Track and Field
Championships are being held
March 5 and 6.
The team to beat would appear
to be host Wisconsin who has top-
rank competitors in most every
event. Teams which will be bat-
tling to catch Wisconsin should
include Indiana, Michigan, Michi-
gan State, Ohio State, and Illi-
nois. Competition between these
teams should prove to be the clos-
est battle in the Big Ten in years;
however this close battle will prob-
ably only be for the runnerup po-
sition, since Wisconsin appears to
have a clear advantage on first;
What makes Wisconsin the lead-
ing contender? For o n e reason,
Wisconsin is the defending Big
Ten Indoor Champion, and they
would certainly not want to dis-
appoint the partisan crowd that
will be on hand that weekend.
Mark Winzenried is another
reason. So is Greg Johnson; and
Don Vandrey, and Pat Onyango,
etc. Winzenried is the prize middle
distance runner who is best in the
Big Ten in the 880-and 1000-yard
runs, as well as among the top two
or three in the mile. Vandrey is
also a regular point-getter in the
880 and mile. Greg Johnson has
regained his eligibility and is a
top-flight long jumper and hurd-
ler. Freshman Oynango is the best
Big Ten triple jumper so far this
season by over four feet.
One could go on and on in ev-
ery event and list a Wisconsin
athlete among the top three. But
this effort would begin to be rath-
er repetitious.
Among the other strong teams,
Indiana is the 1970 outdoor cham-

pion, but their indoor power isn't
quite so great. They are except-
ionally strong in the 60, 300, two-
mile, and s h o t put, but other
events are relatively weak.
Michigan State is also excep-
tionally strong in the 60 and hur-
dle events as well as the 600 and
mile relay. But they are extremely
weak in the field events which
limits their title chances. Illinois,
Ohio State, and Michigan have
more balanced attacks in many
different events, although they are,
not as potent in some as Michigan
State and Indiana.
Michigan has its b i g g e s t
strength in the 70-yard high hur-
dles w i t h Godfrey Murray the
leading title contender. Michigan's
field evert strength lies in high
jumper John Mann, who was run-
nerup last year in Big Ten indoor
competition, and freshman Steve
Adams who has already this sea-
son defeated the one-two place
finishers in last year's Big Ten
Larry Wolfe and Bob Mitchell
could pose a threat in the pole
vault if they fly as high as they
did one year ago, something they
haven't done so far this seascn.
The distance a n d middle-dis-
tance events will be well represent-
ed with Phil Pyatt in the two-mile.
Pyatt has the second fastest time
in the Big Ten so far this season
at 8:51.9. In the mile, Mike Pierce
is a strong entry with a best of
4:08.9. The 1000-yard run will be
represented by Rick Storrey who
presently r a t e s among the top
three in the Big Ten. The 880 will
. have Eric Chapman, who i; among
the current top five in the Big

"GULP!" could be what Detroit Red Wing coach Doug Barkley
might say if he had seen St. Louis Blue's center Garry Unger (7)
scoring on Pittsburgh Penguin goalie Les Binkley last night in a
5-5 tie between the two clubs. Unger was recently traded by De-
troit to the Blues.

JACK NICKLAUS blasts a ball out of a sand trap in yesterday's
practice round for the PGA National Championships in Palm Beach
Gardens, Florida. Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer are pre-tourney
favorites for the prestegious championship. The tournament begins

With the prospect of another un-
defeated season looming before
them the Wolverine gymnasts are
preparing to take on their last dual
meet competitors,, the G r e e n
Meanies from East Lansing.
Although they are not quite up
to Michigan's level, the Spartans
have several outstanding per-
formers. They have two fine all-
around men in Mickey Uram, who
has scored in the 50's, and Randy
Balhorn. Charlie Morse, one of the
Spartan's outstanding athletes, has
posted 9.3's and better on the side
horse, parallel bars and rings.
Morse, who was a polio victim as a
child, won the NCAA title on the
side horse last spring.
The Spartans feature such tal-
ented performers as Dave Ziegert
in floor exercise, Fred Zafran in
vaulting and floor exercise and Al
Beaudet and Tom Coleman on the
high bar. Michigan State has shown
steady improvement since the start
of the season and is now scoring at
the 160 level which means that they
should provide the Wolverines with
some stiff competition.
The following week-end the squad
will travel to Columbus to partici-
pate in the Big Ten Championships.
Friday morning will feature the
team compulsories with the team
optionals being performed that
night. On Saturday afternoon the
top three teams will compete and
in the evening, the individual finals
will be held. The scores on the op-
tionals and competitives on Friday
will be combined and averaged and
then added to the scores of the
Saturday afternoon competition to
determine the Big 10 Champion.
That team along with the three top
individualperformers in each event

Grapplers go against Gophers

What in the hell is hyper-exten-
sion of the knee? Well, what ever
it is, it should make for a good
match between Minnesota's Jim
Axtell, 167 lb. Big Ten Champ in
1970, and Michigan's undefeated
freshman Bob Huizenga in Mich-
igan's last meet of the season.
Hyper-extension of the knee has
caused Axtell to miss some of
the season and should even things
up between the two wrestlers. Ax-
tell alpng with the rest of the
Gopher squad invade Crisier
Arena this Saturday.
The Gophers bring in a respect-
able 9-8-1 record and Michigan's
head coach Rick Bay feels t h a t
they are a good team. But Bay is
confident that his team will win
as long as they wrestle as well as
they have in the past.
Minnesota has been plagued by
injuries so far this year. At one
meet this season, seven out of
their ten wrestlers were fresh-
San Francisco 117, Detroit 115
New York 125, Cincinnati 105
Boston 116, Los Angeles 96
Atlanta 118, Portland 107
Milwaukee 139, San Diego 104
Cleveland at Seattle, inc.
New York 134, Pittsburgh 108
Floridians 112, Denver 110
Virginia at Carolina, inc.
Memphis at Kentucky, inc.
New York 4, Philadelphia 2
St. Louis 5, Pittsburgh 5
Los Angeles at Minnesota, Inc.
Montreal at California, inc.

But the Wolverines also will
have their sh are of problems in
the upcoming meet. They will not;
have the services of 1970 Big Ten
Champ Tim Cech, and 158-pound-
er Mitch Mendrygal will be side-
lines with an. ankle injury.
The loss of Mendrygal h a s
caused Bay to do some shifting in
his lineup. Bay will probably move
Tom Quinn from his 177-pound
class down to the 158-pound class,
and fill Quinn's spot with a third
wrestler. Cech apparently h a s
quit the squad.
According to Bay, there are only
two weight classes which he is
worried about. The classes are
134-pounds and 167-pounds.
Michigan's 134-pounder, R i c k
Neff, will square off against Min-
nesota's Reil Lamphere who was
the Big Ten runner-up in his
weight class last year.
If Michigan defeats Minnesota
this Saturday, they will end up
with a 8-2-2 overall record.
Comm enting on the upcoming

NCAA Wrestling Championships,
Bay is optimistic about several of
his wrestlers making the finals.
But in order to gain entry to the
finals, a wrestler must qualify by
placing in the top five in the
NCAA districts.
The Wolverines will have to

travel to De Kalb, Illinois for
districts which will be held
weekend of March 13.
