Game number two of Michi-
gan's young basketball season
unfurls tonight when Johnny
Orr's cagers tangle with Toledo
University down at the Rockets'
home floor. By tipoff time to-
night (7:30), an announced sell-
out of 4100 partisan Ohioans will
pack Toledo Field House to
watch the 1-0 Wolverines kick off
the 0-1 Rockets' 1973-74 home
Toledo visited South Carolina
last Saturday night and fell to
the Gamecocks 74-54. Michigan
Assistant Coach Billy Frieder
scouted that ballgame and came
h o m e exuding confidence.
"We're quicker and faster than
Toledo" related last year's Flint
coach, "And I think we're a bet-
ter rebounding team than they
w <r rare.'"
Frieder reports that Toledo
stayed in its basic man-to-man
defense throughout the South
~ :::.~Caroline game, rarely pressed
the Gamecocks, and employed a
deliberate, non-breaking offense.
But Jim Dutcher, Orr's top as-
sistant, thinks the Rockets might

. . court presses against the Wol-
Salukis in Saturday's action. Coach John Orr and his charges verines tonight. "I know (Toledo
won that season opener against Southern Illinois and will be in Coach) Bobby Nichols" smiled
action tonight hoping to shoot down the Toledo Rockets and win Dutcher, "and he likes to do
number two. those things."

Nichols' crew trailed South
Carolina by eight points enter-
ing the second stanza Saturday
night when their shooting eyes
went blind. A nightmarish 10 for
37 post-intermission fizzle left
the Rockets buried by 20 points.
But Frieder knows Toledo can
shoot, especially the Rocket
backcourtmen. Nichols start 6-5
senior Mike Parker and 6-0 trans-
fer student Jim Kindle at guard,
w~hile former Pontiac Central
alum Larry Cole sits in ready
PARKER, second team All-
MAC forward in 1973 when he
was the Rockets' 'sixth man,'
presents a physical problem for
Michigan in the backcourt
against thedWolverines'smaller
guards. Kindle shot an atrocious
one for nine against Carolina, a
performance which furnished
Cole with enough court time for
a six for nine night and a team-
high 15 points.
Up ftont, Toledo plays 6-8 Jim
Brown, 6-8 Russell Frost and 6-5

F Bob Repp (6-5)
F Russell Frost (6-8)
C Jim Brown (6-8)
G Jim Kindle (6-0)
G Mike Parker (6-5)
Bob Repp. According to Frieder,
all three big men operate near
the hoop, with Brown especially
tough inside and off the boards.
As for the matchups under-
neath, it should be C. J. Kupec
against Brown, Repp against
C a m p y Russell, and Frost
against Bill Ayler. Although
Repp will sacrifice a few inches
to Campy, in Frieder's view
"He strong and plays some pret-
ty good defense."
THE BIG MAN Toledo sorely
misses is two-time Mid-America
Conferenct MVP Tom Kozelko
who has graduated into the pro
ranks with the Capital Bullets.
Based on admittedly skimpy
evidence, Michigan's frontcourt-
men appear to be better shoot-
ers, better bounders and quick-
er movers than their Rocket
counterparts. But as will be the
story all year long, foul trouble
for either Kupec or Russell could
cripple the Wolverines.
The spirits of Johnny Orr and
his crew are high after their

solid triumph over Southern Illi-
nois on Saturday. They prac-
ticed yesterday at Toledo Field
House, getting acustomed to the
idiosyncracies of the Rockets'
SEVEN Michigan high school
products grace Toledo's 12-man
squad, many of whom at one
time envisioned wearing the
maize and blue uniform. Also,
six Rockets remember the 101-
65 roasting Campy Russell and
friends handed them in the
Michigan Invitational Tourna-
ment last Christmas. In that
game Russell hit for 30 points,
corralled 20 caroms, and reject-
ed six Toledo shots in a devas-
tating performance.
Toledo will not overwhelm
Michigan tonight, but they could
be tough. Coach Orr wonder what
his 'rookies' can do on enemy
territory, in particular good-
looking freshman guard Steve
Michigan wants another vic-
tory to build a little momentum
for the weeks ahead. A loss to
the not-so-tough Toledo team
would set them back a ways. The
Wolverines are young, they're
scrappy, and they hustle. They
should win tonight's encounter.

Bo to be reprimanded?
CHICAGO-The Big Ten policy making faculty representa-
tives yesterday gave Commissioner Wayne Duke a vote of con-
fidence and indirectly reprimanded Michigan Coach Bo Schem-
bechler in the current Rose Bowl selection controversy.
They also directed Duke to take whatever action deemed
proper regarding any "unsportsmanslike conduct" in the furor
over Ohio State's assignment to the Rose Bowl.
Duke was accompanied by two faculty representatives, Dr.
Roy L. Whistler, of Purdue, chairman of the conference Rules
and Agenda Committee, and Frank J. Remington, professor of
law from Wisconsin, at the news conference.
Whistler said the Big Ten code carries sanctions against acts
of flagrant unsportsmanlike conduct including public state-
ments to the news media which are derogatory to conference
officials or opponents.
The penalties, Whistler said, range from a reprimand or
probation to bans on recruiting, issuance of tenders and post
season competition.
The furor may have just begun.

Tumblers fifth in Chicago
Michigan's gymnastic team tumbled their way to a some-
what disappointing fifth place finish Saturday in the Windy
City Invitational at Chicago. Defending NCAA champion Iowa
State won the competition.
Jean Gagnon captured first place in the parallel bars, com-
pulsory competition, while teammate Richard Rigras placed
second in the vaulting.

Major domos meet
The major league meetings began yesterday in Houston and
a couple of trades were made. The Tigers sent hurler Fred
Scherman to the Astros for Jim "Sting" Ray. Atlanta sent
Ron Schueler to the Phillies for Barry Lersch and Charlie Finley
made a typical Finley trade as he re-acquired reliever Bob
Locker in exchange for Horacio Pina.
Rosen leads keglers
Boze's Boozing Bawlers of the All-Campus Monday Night
League at tough Union Lanes took all three games and total
pins last night to improve their league-leading record to 33-11,
entering the final night of competition next Monday.
Don Rosen, the all-time leading pin getter in Union League
history with nearly 100,000 Union pins threw a 574 series, includ-
ing a 226 game. MarkWaldron also had a 215. for the winners.
The Bawlers closest competitor, I.D.G.A.C., had a 30-10 log
entering a 9 p.m. match. I.D.G.A.C. is led by the league's best
kegler, Keith West, who sports a nifty 186 average.

IM grid cham ps crowned
Ubermensch and Elliott House of Markley Hall reign su-
preme as Intramural football champions as they recently cap-
tured the Independent and Residence Hall titles, respectively.
Close to 100 teams competed in each division. Each seven
man unit had to win three league games before capturing three
tournament tilts..
Ubermensch ran up 156 points against their opponents' six
in charging to their trophy (one win was by forfeit). Only Beaver
Patrol could dent their end zone, as they came up with a six-
pointer early in the championship game.
But the winners came storming back, keyed by versatile
quarterback Mark Rosenberg. He ran three yards to tie the.
game before racing 72 yards with an interception to ice the
Elliott, meanwhile, whipped East Quad 44-0 to earn their
honors. The winners totalled 130 points in their six triumphs
while limiting their foes to a mere 6 points.
A finalist for the third straight season, Elliott was led by
ex-Naval Academy quarterback Norm Radtke, who once played
second-string to Roger Staubach. He ran for two scores and
passed for four more.

NEW YORK 0P) - Defensive
tackle Dave Gallagher was named!
to The Associated Press All-
America college football team, yes-
terday. The 6-4, 245 pound, Piqua,
Ohio, native is the only member of,
the Michigan Big Ten co-cham-'
Spionshipteam to be given first
team honors.
The Wolverines were shut out
of both the second and third All-
America teams, but several
members of Bo Schembechier's
undefeated Michigan squad re-
ceived honorable mentions. Of-
fensive guard Mike Hoban, quar-
terback Dennis Franklin, fullback
Ed Shuttlesworth, and safety
Dave Brown all earned mentions.
Tight end Paul Seal was notice-
ably absent from the list of hon-
orees, receiving not so much as an
honorable mention in the annual
Running back Tony Dorsett of
the University of Pittsburgh be-
came the first freshman in 29 years
to be named to the All-America
squad, which also included re-
peaters Randy Gradishar and John

Wood of Southern California.
Gradishar and Wood are line-
backers. Hicks is an offensive

tailback from Aliquippa, Pa., fin-
ished second nationally in rush-
ing with 1,586 yards in 11 games

posted its first winning record in
a decade.

team honors was fullback Doc1
Blanchard of Army in 1944.

Dorsett has proved to be the
greatest freshman runner in his-
tory. His 1,586 yards erased the
previous best by a freshman-1,291
yards by New Mexico State's Po
James in 1968. His 265 yards
against Northwestern in his third
varsity game were the best per
formance ever by a freshman and
his 209 against nationally ranked
SNotre Dame were the, most .ever
in a game against the Fighting
Penn State Coach Joe Paterno,

Lenny Moore, Franco Harris, Ly-

Matmen pin patsies;
tougher tests ahead

There may well be an energyj
crisis, but it certainly isn't af-
fecting the Michigan wrestling
Coach Rick Bay's grapplers
had power to spare last week-j
end, thrashing Western Michigan
42-3 on Friday night, and coming
back Saturday afternoon to de-
vour the Bobcats of Ohio Univer-
sity, 38-0.
The Michigan wrestling pro-
gram is celebrating its golden
anniversary this year, and Bay
feels the national championship
is within reach. "Our goal is to
win the NCAA championship," he
said, "but we are by no means
looking past the Big Ten tourna-
Bay has reason to be cautious,
as Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan
State will all field strong teams.
Does this year's Maize and
Blue mat outfit have good depth?
Just ask sophomore Jeff Guyton.
Guyton captured the Big Ten
title at 134 last year, but lost his
job to senior Bill Davids, who
moved up a weight after placing

fourth in the nation at 126.
"In some weights," said Bay,
"the weekly challenge matches
will be tougher than wrestling in
the actual meet." This type of
competition should help the squad
reach its full potential.
Bay announced after yester-
day's practice that Davids, who
pinned both of his opponents, was
named Champion of the Week.
Michigan's next meet is against
Pittsburgh Thursday, and then
it's on to University Park to
compete in the Penn St. Invita-
tional on Friday and Saturday.

Now there's one album
with John Deniver'
most popular hits.
