Special To The Daily
PULLMAN, Wash. - The
UCLA Bruins are awfully good
shooters, but that's not what
really worries Johnny Orr.
What happens when they miss
is Orr's biggest concern, and
there, in all probability, lies the
key to tonight's first round
West regional game between
Michigan and UCLA.
UCLA is blessed with a
plethora of talented basket-
ball players, and everyone
Tonight's Michigan-UCLA
basketball game will be
broadcast starting at 11:00

of them knows how to clean
the backboards.
The UCLA front line is 6-6,
6-9, and 6-8, and head coach
John Wooden can throw in a
seven-footer for good measure.
Michigan, on the other hand,
that be going with its less than
intimidating 6-2, 6-6, 6-8, group
that Orr has recently been call-
ing "the smallest major college
*lineup in the country."
Whether or not Orr's state-
ment is true, there's no doubt
Michigan will have its hands
full trying to keep the Bruins
away from the basket.
"Rebounding will tell the
story," admitted C. J. Kupec
yesterday. "We've got to take
our man and keep him off the
UCLA's most effective man
in the rebounding category is
6-8 forward Dave Meyers. He
has impressed the Michigan
coaches with his ability to grab
offensive rebounds.
For a while this week,
Michigan upset hopes were
fueled by rumors of a leg in-
jury that would sideline
Meyers tonight. But the ru-
mors are wrong.

To no one's surprise, Meyers1
has recovered in time for to-
night's game.
Meyers, everybody's All-Ev-
erything - worked out yester-
day and looked as good as his
press clippings would indicate.
In fact, the entire UCLA team
looked good. Coach Wooden can
choose his starters from among
twelve high school All-Ameri-
Johnny Orr's squad does not
resemble Wooden's reservior of
raw talent. But Orr does pos-
sess some very dedicated indi-
viduals who in recent weeks
have been nearing the peak of
their game.
And Orr will need some
sterling , defensive efforts
from his players to pull off a
victory tonight.

At the other forward,
"guard" Wayman Britt, 6-2, is
assigned to 6-6 Marques John-

Orr and staff are hoping that
Britt can pull another job like1
he did against Notre Dame's
All-American Adrian Dantley
last year. Dantley managed
only two points in that game.
Kupec, at center, will guard
6-9 Richard Washington, a 14.8
scorer. Washington is described
as an excellent outside shooter
for a big man.
"He's probably their poorest
defensive player," says Kupec.'
"But offensively, he'd got a real ;
good jump shot."

Wolverine forward Wayman Britt (right) overcomes some unusual defense by Purdue's Wal-
ter Jordan to score two of his fourteen points i, Michigan's 93-75 victory over the Boiler-
makers two weeks ago. Despite being only 6-2, Britt is one of the Big Ten's finest defensive
players. He will need a good shooting eye besides when Michigan faces the UCLA Bruins.

Well sports fans, it's March, and that means
in Michigan it's the Al Bush lottery, or how to
get 4,000 people into a 3,000 seat gym. It is
otherwise known as the Michigan High School
Basketball tournament.
The quarterfinal round is history, and going
into the semis, there is only one defending
champion still in it, Bay City All Saints, in Class
So on with the show. I guarantee that the
True Swami, Abdul Ben-Bosi will do better than
that phony in Detroit.
Class A HIGHLAND PARK (21-3) vs. DEAR-
BORN FORDSON (22-4) The Tractors of Ford-
son are known for their rugged defense, which
they used well against Lansing Everett. How-
ever, Highland Park has players that can put
the ball in the hoop with people hanging on both
arms. The Parkers killed Big Bad Berkley, but
they will have a tougher time with Fordson.
The Tractors will run out of gas here though.
Highland Park comes to Crisler.
MOUTH SALEM (22-2). Salem has more height

Class C BAY CITY ALL SAINTS (25-1) vs.
NEGAUNEE (21-4). These two teams last met
in a Class B quarterfinal game which lasted
three overtimes. The Miners from UP-land have
dug themselves in too deep this time and All
Saints, the State's number one 'C' school, goes
to its second straight final.
FLORIAN (21-4). Michigan's favorite city is
represented by St. Florian in this game. With
6-7 Kevin Williams controlling the boards for
St. Florian, it will be tough for Cassopolis to
prevail, despite their own All-Stater Roger
Walters. St. Florian wins to set up an all-Catho-
lic class C final with All Saints.

DALE (17-8). Crystal Falls knocked off last
year's finalist, Harbor Spring's, in the quarter-
