Cazzie returning to Michigan
as world champs meet Pistons

j
p.

By ELLIOT LEGOW
Before last Saturday Washing-
ton was considered just another
soft touch on Michigan's no n-
conference football schedule. But
after the Huskies demolished
Michigan State 42-16 with t h e
largest yardage total ever racked
up against the Spartan defense,
the Wolverines saw a tough op-
ponent arise out of an expected
patsy.
On the basis of a 598 total yard-
performance against MSU the
Huskies stand as a definite of-
fensive threat and a big test for
Michigan's tough defense. T h is
Saturday's meeting in Seattle
should feature plenty of passing
from last week's Associated Press
back of the week, Husky quarter-
back Sonny Sixkiller.
BEFORE THE SEASON opened
there was plenty of publicity about
Sixliller, mostly concerning the
fact he is a full blooded Cherokee
Indian and the grandson of an
Indian chief. Now the talk is about
his football ability.
Washington Coach Jim Owens
wants to withhold his praise of
Sixkiller until he has had more
work, but he admits, "He had an
outstanding day (against MSU).
He has enough accuracy and he
doesn't - mind running . .. He
still has lots to learn, though."
Sixkiller hit on 16 of 36 passes
against the Spartans and set a
Washington team record with 313
yards in total offense. But he is
more interested about being on a

winning team. "I w a n t to be
known as somebody that quar-
terbacked a winning team a nd
beat the big teams," Sixkiller says.
He'll get his first opportunity
against a big team this Saturday.
Washington's reputation as a
loser is going to be a hard one to
break. Last year the Huskies only
won one of ten games, and were
picked for 1 a s t in the Pacific
Eight again this season.
A CONVINCING VICTORY in
the first game of the season will
help the Huskies greatly, both in
terms of team pride and in respect
they will now receive from their
opponents.
"I was very pleased with the
performance last week," Owens
noted, "it was our best opening in
years. We anticipated that we'd
do well but we didn't expect that
big a margin."
Owens knows h o w important
that first win is, "We were com-
ing off a tough season and win-
ning the opener really helps. It
was good to win, but now we've
got to come back to reality."
REALITY MEANS o p p o s i n g
Michigan, a team which the Hus-
kies have never beat. In the three
meetings between the two schools,
the Wolverines h a v e limited
Washington to only one touch-
down, and that was last year in a
45-7 Michigan rout.

Are you tired of reading those idiotic football predictions by
peerless prognosticators and fearless forecasters week after week
throughout the gridiron season? You know they're wrong before you
read the things, don't you? But what can you do?
Time was you could do nothing. You were stuck laughing at
what those gridiron guessers had to say. Admittedly, there are worse
pastimes, but you know you've always felt an inner sense of frustra-
tion because you always know you could do better.
NOW'S YOUR CHANCE t! Yes indeed, ladies and gentlemen, the
time has come when you too can make your name famous in the
annals of football forecasters. You, yes you, can become a peerless
pigskin prognosticator. Who knows, you might even, be better than
Tricky Dick!!,
What must you do to merit this vast acclaim?, Mere child's play,
good people, mere child's play. Simply pick the outcome of each of
the games below and the score of the Michigan-Washington game.
Use whatever method you want. Eenie-Meenie-Mienie-Mo works pretty
well. Some folks swear by Simon Says. Or you could try a little ESP.
If all else fails, you could call Jean Dixon or hire the Gallup poll-
takers.
When you've made your choices, truck on down to The Daily and
give your forecast to somebody in the sports section. If you're the
best of all the rest, you win a free Cottage Inn pizza. With all the
trimmings, yet. Just imagine that delectible dough, that tongue
tingling tomato sauce, that good green pepper, those amazing an-
chovies, that charming cheese,. those spine-tingling spices, that
.scintillating sausage. Think of masticating on those marvelous mush-
rooms. All that for just being a picky soul.

NIGHT EDITOR:
JERRY CLARKE r
the imrovements the. Huskies have
made since last year. "We have
more team speed, more talent, and
a better passing attack, but we're
a long way from outstanding"
DUFFY DOUGHERTY, coach at
Michigan State who saw his team
flattened by Washington, gives
high praise to the Huskies. "We
knew they had improved, but we
didn't know they had improved as
much as they did. They had .in
explosive team, g r e a t speed in
their receivers, and a good quar-
terback in Sixkiller . . . Their
defense was quick, mobile, and
hostile against us."
Sixkiller's speedy receivers are
led by sophomore split end Ira
Hammons who grabbed bombs of
59 and 37 yards from Sixkiller in
the opener. Jim Krieg, a 5-10 jun-
ior college transfer, senior Ralph
Bayard, and tight end Ace Bulger
provide the Huskies with a va-
riety of good targets.
Complementing Sixkillers' pass-
ing will be the running of fullback
Bo Cornell and halfbacks Joe Bell
and Mark Wheeler. Cornell and
Bell, who will probably start

PHIL SEYMOUR (91), Wolverine defensive end, looks on as team-
mates Pete Newell (82) and Henry Hill (39) tackle an Arizona
ballcarrier in last Saturday's game against the Wildcats. The
Michigan trio will be counted upon heavily this week, as the de-
fense will try to contain Sonny Sixkiller, the Washington quarter-
back.

By AL SHACKELFORD
Cazzie Russell is coming home.
An estimated 14,500 fans _ will
welcome Russell back to his old
hunting-ground tonight at 8 p.m.
as he leads the world-champion
New York Knicks into' exhibition
against the rejuvenated Detroit
Pistons. The game will be played,
fittingly enough, in Crisler Arena,
"The House that Cazzie Built."
The Knicks bring one of the
finest teams in ,pro basketball his-
tory into Crisler Arena tonight.
They outclassed the luckless Los
Angeles Lakers last spring to take
the NBA championship and are a
good bet to repeat, despite the
ballyhooed Alcindor - Robertson
merger at Milwaukee.
SOME OF THE horses in the
Knick stable are:
' -Willis Reed, the most valuable
player in the NBA last year, whose
injury in the finals against Los
Angeles provided his team with
the inspirational impetus which
carried them to the title. Reed is
an excellent big m a n in every
sense of the word, the post around
which the Knick attack moves.
-Walt Frazier, the best defen-
sive g u a r d in the NBA and a
steady 20 points-per-game scorer.
He humiliated Jerry West in the
seventh g a m e of the finals by
forcing the crew-cut Laker ace
into numerous mistakes and even
stealing the ball outright on a few
occasions.
-Dave DeBusschere, who play-
ed at Detroit Austin as a school-
boy and later starred at the Uni-
versity of Detroit. Dave w a s a
steady performer for Detroit foi
many years and continues at New

York as one of the
wards around.

DICK BARNETT and Bill Brad-
ley round out the Knicks' regular
starting five, while potent bench
strength is provided by Dave
Stallworth, Cazzie, a n d Mike
Price, the Knicks number o n e
draft choice from Illinois.
Traditionally at the other end
of the basketball scales from the
Knicks are the Detroit Pistons,
who have certainly had one of the
more laughable pro basketball
pasts.' Lately, however, the Pis-
tons have had an uncharacteristic
run of good luck: former Boston
College star Terry Driscoll return-
ed from his Italian interlude to
sign with Detroit, Jimmy Walker
quit screwing around and estab-
lished himself as one of the lea-
gue's better guards, and Bob Lan-
ier inked a Piston pact.
THESE THREE map 1 e m e n,
along with such steady Pistons as
the ubiquitous Dave Bing, Terry'
Dischinger and Otto Moore, form
the nucleus of a potentially-ex-
plosive team. Additional help

finest for-

should come from such baby Pis-
tons as Steve Mix, Harvey Mar-
latt from Eastern Michigan, and
Johnny Arthurs.
Whether or not Detroit ends
its losing ways depends in great
part on the condition of Lanier's
bum knee: it was injured l a s t
spring in t h e St. Bonaventure-
Tickets are still available for

bition basketball game. Stu-
dents may purchase tickets for

Villanova NCAA Eastern final

Big Bob has been working out
with a limp lately, though, and
scored 16 points in an intrasquad
game Tuesday. Lanier a n d his
knee will undoubtedly get quite a
workout tonight when the two of
them go up against that Atlas of
the hardcourt, Willis Reed.

a converted flanker, can be an ex-
plosive runner.
THERE ARE many weaknesses
on the Washington squad, how-
ever. Owens admits, "We've got
a lot of them, on offense, defense,
and with the kicking game."

One of the Huskies main prob-
lems m a y be in their offensive
line. The line, led by 6-7 center
Bruce Jarvis, is very big, but is
not quick. Last week against the
Spartans, however, Sixkiller was
given plenty of time and was only
dropped twice.
