Without a doubt, the sports
story ofrthe year is the pheno-
menal rise of the new Daily
senior editors. Tabbed by local
scribes for an extensive rebuild-
ing year following the demise of
the scrappy "Borus Bunch," the
new seniors have peeped through
in championship style.

Feldman, founder of the city
of Ann Arbor and an accounting
major, has been the key to the
Libels' success this season at
the pivot. Equally adept at the
typewriter and the hardcourt, he
is considered by many to be the
most valuable player on this
team of high flying stars.
Rounding out the front line are
executive editor George Hast-
ings a n d contributing editor
Clarke Cogsdill. H a s t i n g s, a
bonny Englishman from Ply-
mouth, Mich., is a defensive
specialist. He always takes on
the opposition's top performer,
be it Campy Russell or the girl
down the hail.
A truly rounded personality,
he spends his spare time as a
history and political science ma-
jor, and as a Democrat. George
can be found, if not at the Daily,
at a political convention shaking
his fist in the air and shouting,
"NO, NO, NO!"
Cogsdill possesses the most
facile typewriter west of the Al-
legeheny's and is the team's
resident decadent. He is noted
for his shooting ability, particu-
larly from the left side. Clarke
owns 65 per cent interest in
Maxhill House coffee.
From the shores of mighty
Lake Michigan come the Libel
backcourt pair, managing editor
Roger Rossiter and contributing
editor Theresa Swedo. Rossiter,
a marketing major from Hart,
holds team records in both points
scored and cans of Busch beer
downed. Roger, used to clean
Western Michigan air, has been
coughing consistently since he
arrived here 2 years ago.
Swedo, a women's studies ma-
jor from Whitehall, serves as the
playmaker on the court. "She
has moves that have yet to be
seen," gasped one pro scout.
Theresa can be found, if not
at the Daily, anywhere, shaking
her fist in the air and shouting,
"NO, NO, NO!"

PIN HOPES ON FIELD EVENTS
By MARCIA MERKER
Michigan's indoor track schedule
leaves something to be desired in
v a r i e t y. The Wolverines meet
Michigan State today for the
fourth time. However, in this case,
they're keeping score.
The forecast is for a close con-
test. Last year Michigan upset
State at Yost Fieldhouse. But this
meet is at Jenison and that really
makes a difference to the Spar-
"It's gonna be close. We've
got to rack up some points in1
field e v e n t s. The difference
should be two or three points;
If we do real well it will be ten,"
commented assistant track coach
Against MSU last weekend, the
Wolverines compiled a good set
of stats. After two earlier attempts;
this season, Michigan's Dave Wil-
liams overpowered Spartan Big
Ten champion Bob Cassleman in
the 600-yd. run. Both men ran a
slow 1:10.5. They'll try it again
19 STRAIGHT VIC
By AL HRAPSKY
Whatever a successful winningj
basketball formula consists of,
coach Buzz Ridl and his seventh
ranked Pittsburgh Panthers seem
to have put it together this year.
Following an opening loss to
West Virginia, the Panthers, with
five returning starters from last
year's squad which produced a
dismal 12-14 record, have reeled
off 19 straight victories. This
stands as the longest winning
streak in the nation after UCLA's
string of 88 was broken by Notre
Dame on Jan. 19.
RIDL, IN HIS sixth year at
Pittsburgh, an independent
school, explained the transfor-
mation which has catapulted his
team to the upper rungs of the
Associated Press national rank-
"It's kind of deceiving the
way we've slipped in there butj
it hasn't been a poor team that
suddenly developed into a great
one. We've improved four to five
per cent in almost every phase
of our game," he stated. ;
One area where the coach
sees marked improvement has
been on defense. The Panthers
seldom play one defense, shift-
ing from a man-to-man to a
zone, depending on their oppo-
nent. Ridl attributed their suc-;
cess to his defensive coach. ;
"Defensively we've played very
well and Fran Webster has done
a real good job," he retorted.
Ridl, in distinguishing thej
Panthers astounding success thisI
season, emphasized that last
year's schedule was tougher and
that the team had matured with

singled out the play of 6'6" Bill
"Moony" Knight who leads the
team in scoring with a 24 point
average. In a 89-73 loss to UCLA
at Pauley Pavillion last year,
Knight fired in 37 points and,
according to Ridl, was heralded
by the press as "one of the most
outstanding players to play thee?
since Austin Carr." The Panthers
matched the Bruins in field goals
in that confrontation but were

"We have eight players who
are all very good. Knight and

utes a game and the others about
20 minutes," he said.
Martin suffered a leg injury
last week but Ridl was confident
that he would be back at full
strength by the end of the week.
AMONG THE teams that have
fallen prey to the Panthers are
Florida State 82-60, Penn State
83-61, Connecticut (who beat
Syracuse) 83-63, Syracuse 71-56,
and Davidson (who beat South
Carolina) 71-56. Davidson was
handed its worst defeat in 154
years. Many of these teams havef
shifted in and out of the nationall
rankings and are usually promi-i
nent basketball powers.
With a 19-1 record, a nationalj
ranking, and some impressivet
victories over other strong oppo-f
nents, Ridl stated, "I think thatc
we are in contention for a berth
in the NCAA tournament as an
independent. However, we have
six games left to play."

Michigan's women's varsity basketball team will try to even

The young Wolverine squad finally gets a crack at someone

Michigan appeared confident during practices this week.
"Our defense is very tough," claims senior Sheryl Szady,

"Jackson hasn't played well this year," continued Szady.
