Losing six games has madet
one thing easier for the Mich-
igan basketball team: getting
"up" for a game like today's..,
Iowa is in town for a 2:05
tip-off, and unlike some coach-
es, Michigan's Johnny Orr
doesn't have to worry about
his Wolverines suffering a let-
down for a game with the
7-13 Hawkeyes. They simply
can't afford it.
Michigan is in the thick of a
four-team scramble for post-
season tournament berths, and
each squad is well aware that
it can lose only one more game
-maybe two-and still be in-
vited to a tourney.

"Right now we have a very
fine attitude," assures Orr. "We
know that it's important to win
every game down the strztch
here, because a post-season
tournament bid is in the offing."
This year, the NCAA will con-
sider runners-up in major con-
ferences as eligible for its tour-
nament. A game and a half
separates Michigan, Michigan
State, Purdue, and Minnesota-
all candidates for second place
behind undefeated Indiana.

Tankers meet

Sports of The Daily



star divers compete

This afternoon's swim meet
between Michigan and Ohio State
at 4 p.m. in Matt Mann pool
might as well be without the
swimming end of the event. No
one seems to really care about
the Buckeye breaststrokers or
backstrokers or even OSU's
record, which happens to be 3-5
in dual meets.
The talk of the town is the
clash between the Buckeyes'
defending national d i v i n g
champ, Tim Moore, and the
Maize and Blue's own Donnie
Craine. They are, without a
doubt, two of the finest divers
in the land.
Ohio State swiming has en-
joyed far less success than that
of Woody's football legions, and
Buckeye coach John Bruce
readily acknowledges that his
Bucks "don't have the kind of
team that can go against Michi-
gan." What little strength the
Buckeyes do possess in the
swim events rests mainly in six
Skip Steinman, who is in a
"mid-season slump" according
to Bruce, and Geoff Zann carry
the brunt of the Buck's sprint

load. A freshman, Tracy Smith,
is their only threat in the dis-
tance events, but his coach says
that "he's not ready to go
against Gordon Downie."
The only competitive match
of the night appears to be in the
breaststroke, where Bill Hensel
of Ohio State is expected to be
troublesome. The top OSU back-
stroker is Mike Levitz and Jim
Kemp is their number one but-
Needless to say, the Buckeyes'
hopes of an upset are almost
nil. Bruce aptly summed it up
by quipping, "We'll have a
tough time at Michigan in any
swim event."
The Scarlet and Gray divers
are an entirely different story.
Michigan diving coach Dick
Kimball has nothing but praise
for them, calling them "the
best team of divers in the
country this year."
OSU diving coach Ron O'Brien
has assembled a squad of divers
that makes opponents tremble.
Kent Vosler, Tim Fox and
Roger Blocher all placed in the
Big Ten meet last year and
freshman Frank D'Emico is
right on par with them.

Then, of course, there

Tumblers take on Spartans
The Michigan gymnastics team, coming off a double-dual
is meet victory over Indiana and Illinois, hosts the Michigan State
re tumblers in Crisler Arena today, at 4:30 p.m.
st The Wolverines shouldn't have much trouble with the
v-, Spartans. MSU's top point total this year is only 196.35, and
ss they have only one dual meet victory in five tries.
2e- Michigan, on the other hand, has consistently topped the
200 point plateau this season, in compiling a 4-1 mark.
kA Spartans to watch are all-arounders Jeff Rudolph and John
ee Short, rings specialist Bob Holland, and vaulter Jim Tuerk.
Michigan will counter with their usual strong lineup as they try
e to improve their routines in time for the Big Ten championships.
a The competition will be preceded by a trampoline exhibition,
