a fleeting thing. Many a player
touted as a dominant player in the
future of the sport fizzles into obscurity
after graduation sends him into the
ranks of the professional cagers. Some
unfortunates even lose their touch while
still in college.
No one knows this better than a
Michigan graduate by the name of
Henry Wilmore. Wilmore is currently
in Ypsilanti, attending the training
camp of the Detroit Pistons, trying to
work his way back into the basketball
Four years ago, the basketball fu-
ture seemed very bright indeed for
Henry Wilmore. He had just finished
a record-setting sophomore year With
the Wolverines. He and his young
teammates had 'gone 12-2 in the Big
Ten and earned their way into' the
National Invitational Tournament,
and Henry received plenty of All-
America mention. It seemed as if

there were nowhere his basketball ,
career conldn't go.
As it turned out, though, the en'd of
that season was the zenith for Wilmore.
He sustained a - knee "injury early the
next year, and never again returned to
his earlier form. His senior season,
1972-73, was a true disappointment, as
he shifted from forward to guard and
looked very much out of place as the
highly-rated Wolverines stumbled to
an incredibly poor 6-8 conference
Drafted almost as an afterthought by
the Pistons, Wilmore failed even tp
show up at their rookie camp a year
ago. Instead, he laid off for awhile and
then went back to school and com-
pleted his bachelor's degree, playing a
little semi-pro ball on the side.
This summer, though, the pro basket-
ball itch got to Henry. Sitting in his
Holiday Inn room in \Ypsi Monday
evening, he explained why he was in
"I decided that for my own piece

of mind I had to give pro basketball
a try,' he said. "I had to know
whether I could actually make it with
the Pistons. I figured that it would
be kind of ridiculous not to take this,
chance while I have it. I think I have
the ability to play in the pros-and
V'm going to find out."
One thing is for sure-Wilmore has a
tough job cut out for him to make the
Pistons, now one of the top teams in
basketball. Detroit does have a spot
open after losing guard Stu Lantz in
the expansion draft, but Wilmore, who
did his best playing as a 6-32 forward,
has yet to prove himself a competent
backcourt man.
Henry is not discouraged. "I think
it's possible for me to make it," he
reasons. "Plenty of college forwards
have switched to guard in the pros.
I've been working very hard, trying
to concentrate on my defense, and
I'll play forward or guard, wherever
the coach puts me." .
He said that the senior year at guard

o role
in, college has helped, and that he
"learned at lot" from that experience,
although he quickly added, "I still have
a whole lot to learn."
Right now, it's too early to judge
just how well Wilmore and the Pistons
are going to mesh, particularly since
one Detroit starter, Dave Bing, has
yet to report because of salary dispute.
"I really wish they were here," he
says, "especially Dave. He's one of the
great guards in basketball and I know
I could learn a whole lot from him."
Realistically, the competition Wil
more is bucking, for the spot he
wants, is more than just token.
Mahid Abdul-Rahman (formerly
Walt Hazzard), is a grizzled and ex-
perienced veteran, while Eric Money
and Dennis Layton are impressive,
young, and experienced guards.
Henry realizes that, but just shrugs.
"I'm just going to work hard and do
the best I can," he philosophizes. "If
I don't make it, at least I will know
I tried."

onately nicknamed by

tempts to lead Michigan to its Wolverine fans as 'Duf' and
third Rose Bowl triumph in as 'Moose.' Don claims that his

many tries.
Today, Coach Bo Schem-
bechler can boast of two Du-
feks on his team. First of all,
Schembechler recruited Bill
Dufek (6-4, 255 lbs.) from East
Grand Rapids High School
this year and the prospects on
newenmer Dufek are extreme-
ly high.
However, the Dufek that has
won the non,"larity on the Mich-
f v' campus is wolfman Don
D' fek <Jr., recruited straight
'it of ,\nn Arbor's Pioneer High
School. Dufek's hard hitting
ability on the, football field as
well as in the hockey rink has
gained him accolades through-
out the country as well as in
the environs of Ann Arbor.
Dufek, along with Dave

father had no influence on his
attending Michigan.
"If anything, my father had
an adverse affect oh my at-
tending Michigan. He probably'
downplayed my coming here if
anything. He didn't want to
prejudice me. The decision was
left up to me."
In discussing the two sports,
hockey and football, Dufek has
only praise for both the sports
and his performance.
"Football is something I can
excel in. I like the contact. As
far as hockey is concerned, I
think it is the finest sport as'
far as spectator involvement
and whatever else goes. I like
them both."
Dufek feels that of the two
sports, he could probably be
better in hockey; but for three

years he did not play because
his family had moved to
South Bend.
Although drafted by the Red
Wings, Don wishes to keep both
channels in football and hockey
open, as well as finishing school.
Presently, Dufek is a general
studies major hoping to pursue
some career in public relations
if the pros do not work out.
Professional. sports is Don's
first ,shot after he graduates',
but he realizes the importance
of his remaining in school, so
the Red Wings will have to wait
it oit until he decides on foot-
ball or hockey after graduation.
In discussing the two coachesj
he plays under, Farrell and
Schembechler, Dufek gives them
both equal praise.
"Bo is a little more intense
than Dan, but their philosophies
are both sound. The discipline
in football is different from
hockey. Hockey is more indi-
vidualized. There is more room
for Farrell to give us individ-
ualized attention and the pres-
sure is not as great."
''Schembechler relates real
well but there is just not the
time for full individual atten-
tion. After all, football deals
with more than 120 people."
This year, Dufek discusses the
football team with a degree of
perspectiveness. Of course, like
everyone around. Don's biggest
disappointment was not going to
the Rose Bowl. However, un-
like many of his teammates, he

felt he at least had something
to which to look forward.
The goals this year for the
team, according to Don, are of
course, to be first in the nation.
"We are taking one game at
a time. We hope to be ready
for each one. The Big Ten is
better this year and as a result
we won't allow ourselves to look
past any of the games. Every-
body is hustling this year, more
so than in the past. I guess we
are out to prove that we were
kind of screwed last year by
the Big Ten."I
