There's a sign posted in the
Michigan basketball locker room
whi~h reads: "We left California
two days early because of State.
Remember the Rose Bowl. Beat
Today's game marks the first
meeting of athletic teams from
the two Michigan schools since
MSU Athletic D i r e c t o r Burt
Smith gave Michigan the shaft
in the balloting for the Rose
Bowl. A near - capacity c r o w d
should be on hand in Crisler
this afternoon in hopes of seeing
some measure of revenge for
that slight.
The game will probably not be
the bloody slaughter the Crisler
faithful will be screaming for,
but it should be a fascinating
contest nontheless. The Spartans
roll into Ann Arbor with a 2-1
conference mark (7 and S over-
all) and dreams of Big Ten title
contention floating through their
Coach Gus Ganakas has his
team playing typical Michigan
State-style ball. The Spartans
play sloppy basketball, and they
win by making the opposition
play their game.
The Spartan cagers have done
some incredible things this year.
Against Illinois, the Spartans
were held scoreless for the first
six minutes of the game, com-
mitted 14 turnovers in thefirst
22 minutes, and still, somehow,
led at the half and won the ball-
State has averaged 31 turn-
overs a game, this year, a re--
markable figure for a team with
a winning record. As a Michigan
cager put it, "No way should a
team make that many turnovers
and still win."
Gus Ganakas put things in per-
spective. "You know, we're a
funny team. We make a lot of
mistakes, but we make up for
that with our team speed."


F (20) Campy Russell (6-7, 22.4)
F (32) Wayman Britt (6-2, 10.7)
C (41) C. J. Kupec (6-8, 12.2)
G (24) Joe Johnson (5-10, 10.2)
G (30) Steve Grote (6-3, 13.7)
The Spartans habitually em-
ploy a three-quarter court zone
press that harasses opponents
into mistakes. Add to this a col-
lection of shooters that can get
very hot at a moment's notice,
and MSU can offer a very po-
tent offensive attack. The Spar-
tans had Ohio State down by 12
points last Saturday before the
Buckeyes knew what hit them.
In personnel matchups, Gan-
akas will also field a typical
Michigan State lineup-small and
skinny. A major difference is
that this State team possesses
more talent than past models.
Chief among the East Lansing
terrors is the little gunner from
Detroit, M i k e Robinson, who
twice has led the Big Ten con-
ference in scoring. He is cur-
rently averaging 20.6 a game,
down some four points from his
usual pace. Michigan has con-
tained him fairly well in the past,
but he is one player the Wolver-
ines can ill-afford to take lightly.
Bill Glover, an old high schoal
teammate of Campy Russell's,
holds down the Spartans' other
guard spot. Though called upon
primarily to run the offense, he
is the best percentage shooter
on the Michigan State squad.
Lindsay Hairston, the Spartan
center, will renew an old rivalry
with Campy Russell which dates

(45) Lindsay Hairston (6-7, 15.2)
(31) Mike Robinson (5-11, 20.6)
(12) Bill Glover (6-2, 7.8)
back to their junior years in high
school. Lindsay averages 15.2
points per game and, along with
forward Terry Furlow, comprises
MSUSs strength on the boards.
Furlow also contributes to the
scoring attack, hitting at a 12.2
The other forward, Brian Bres-
lin, has improved steadily in the
past few games. Tom McGill and
freshman Edgar Wilson have also
seen a lot of playing time at for-
ward and likely will again today.
Furlow and McGill were high
school teammates of ,Wayman

Britt at Flint Northern. Their
former coach, Bill Frieder, is
now on the Michigan staff.
The Spartans are all good
shooters; their team leads the
Big Ten in shooting percentage
by a wide margin. But they don't
seem to have developed the
knack of playing together as a
unit, as their many turnovers
For Michigan to beat State It
must play tight defense, both to
prevent the Spartan gunners from
getting hot and to keep the turn-
overs coming. The Wolverines
must keep hustling on the court,
so as not to be burned by MSU's
This is recruiting season, and
and the Michigan basketball staff
has taken advantage of this game
to invite some of Michigan's top
high school prospects to Ann
Arbor. An impressive Wolverine
performance might help convince
them to enroll here.
By all logic, Michigan should
thrash the Spartans, but Mich-
igan State does not play logical
ball. Johnny Orr has only lost
once to Michigan State during
his tenure as Michigan coach.

And as Johnny would tell you,

The MSU game is only the be-
ginning of a crucial weekend for
the Wolverines. Monday night,
Johnny Orr leads his cagers into
Mackey Arena for a contest with
the Purdue Boilermakers that
should decide the conference
Purdue is currently 3-0 in the
Big Ten (10-4 overall) and should
easily dispose of Northwestern
for the second time in their
match today. The Boilermakers
have received outstanding play
from 6-11 center John Garrett
and forward Frank Kendrick,
who have been hitting 23.5 and
18 points per game, respectively.
Victories for visiting schools in
the state of Indiana are never
easy to come by, and coach
Johnny Orr is not expecting a
miracle. However, good teams
have beaten Purdue this year,
and Michigan is a good team.

Grapplers host Hoosiers
Michigan wrestling celebrates its 50th anniversary today as
the Wolverines host rebuilding Indiana in a dual meet at Crisler
Arena immediately following the MSU basketball game.
It was Jan. 19, 1924, when the Maize and Blue entered inter-
collegiate wrestling competition, losing 20-6 to Purdue. Today's
meet should offer a sizeable contrast to that inauspicious be-
The Hoosiers posted a 2-8-2 season's record up to their
confrontation last night versus Western Michigan. Indiana's
victories have been huge: 43-5 and 51-3 trouncings of non-
powerhouses Virginia Tech and Georgia, respectively. But
probably more indicative of the Hoosiers' talents have been
losses to Wisconsin (27-5), Princeton (23-15), Purdue (23-22),
Cleveland State (30-5), and Ohio University (20-14)-the latter
a team Michigan decimated last Dec. 1, 38-0.
Nevertheless, today's visitors include some interesting in-
dividuals who could provide tough combat for their Wolverine
counterparts. 167-pounder Ken Kalcevich is 9-5 this year and
should be good enough to determine whether Michigan's John
Ryan has successfully adjusted to his new, lighter weight.
134-pounder Marty Hutsell, with a 9-5-1 record, is another.
leading Indiana wrestler, but Bill Davids should give him more
than he wants to handle. Jim Main, described by Hoosier coach
Doug Blubaugh as "a hard working and very dedicated .senior
who is one of my best," is 8-4 at 177 pounds. He'll gain the
dubious honor of squaring off against Rob Huizenga.
When told the Hoosiers would start 118-pounder John:
Hobbs, Michigan's Davids shouted "All right-this means
(Jim) Brown's gonna have a tough time getting a pin!"
Hobbs is a hyper-defensive grappler who specializes in
1-1 ties.
126-pounder Jeff Angell is only a .500 matman for Indiana,
but Wolverine Rich Valley is returning after missing several
weeks with an injury. He will not be back at total efficiency.
While preparing for Indiana, the Wolverines learned that
three of their members-Brown, Jerry Hubbard, and Gary Ernst
-were named by Clarion State head wrestling coach Bob Bubb
to represent the East in the annual East-West meet scheduled
for Feb. 4 at Stillwater, Okla. Davids and Huizenga were se-
lected as first alternatives at their weights.
Unfortunately, none of them will be able to make it. Okla-
homa will be in Crisler Arena at 7:30 that evening for one of
the top intersectional dual meets in the country this season.
The Maize and Blue will need everyone they've got that night
to turn back the tough, nationally-ranked Sooners.
MSU challenges V.R1. cagers
The Michigan Varsity Reserves take on Michigan State in
Crisler Arena at noon today, before the Varsity game. The un-
defeated Baby Blue will be looking for its sixth straight win of
the season.
The Spartans, in a desperate effort to stop the Blue
juggernaut, have dropped a pair of varsity players, Benny
White and Lovelle Rivers, to the reserves for this ,game.
State can, if it wishes, start a lineup composed entirely of
scholarship players.
The major change in the Michigan lineup is that Randy
McLean, the Walled Lake Wonder, will be starting at center.
Randy has been improving by.the day in practice, and could
soon be helping the varsity.

Special To The Daily
MADISON - The Michigan
hockey team was supposed to
be tired and intimidated when
}they came into Madison, but if
they were they didn't show it
as they felled the once-mighty
Wisconsin Badgers 3-2 in over-
time last night.
A goal by Pat Hughes at 5:17 of
the overtime period silenced the
boisterous Badger crowd once and
for all and gave Michigan the hard-
earned victory.
"There is no better feeling in
the world than beating Wisconsin
here" cheered Wolverine winger
Don Fardig. His feeling was
echoed by his teammates after
they endured both the Badgers
and their vociferous followers.
The Wolverines overcame an-
other disadvantage last night. A;
fire in Chicago's O'Hare Airport
delayed the teams' arrival in Madi-
son to only four hours before game
The success of Michigan in over-
I coming these obstacles can be at-
I tributed largely to the cool goal-
tending of Robbie Moore and the
srb penalty killing on the part
of Fardig, Paul Paris, Bob Falcon-
er and Gary Kardos.
"Moore will not get riled,"
coach Dan Farrell said about his
sophomore netminder. The Wol-
verines' goalkeeper made 41
saves in his night's work, includ-
ing a dandy just seconds before
Hughes clinched the victory.
Michigan incurred 10 penalties
in the contest, yet Wisconsin did
not score a single power play goal.
That marked 20 minutes of short-
handed hockey without a flaw.

The Badgers dominated the

come the determined and unflinch-
ing Michigan squad to do so.

Give the Michigan swim team a
big "P" for pride. Although the
tankers were beaten 65-48 by a
powerful Stanford contingent, the
Wolverines bounced back from last
week's disappointment against Wis-
consin and acquitted themselves
quite credibly against a squad that,
from here, looks like a contender
for national honors.
Lack of experience caused Mich-
igan's downfall last night. The
Stanford squad is 1 o a d e d with
Olympians and NCAA finalists,
and their years of racing experi-
ence and successful strategies
proved too much for the frosh-,
laden Wolverine team.
"I'm not at all displeased,"
commented Michigan Coach Gus
Stager. "We knew we were
swimming Stanford just for prac-
tice, and we expected to lose
the meet. But we could have
beaten them."
Stager continued, "Norm Sem-
chyshen could have won the 1000-
yard freestyle if he'd have made
his move earlier. The same holds
true for Gordon Downie in the 500.
And Stu Isaac could have beaten
(John) Hencken in the breaststroke
if he'd swum his own race instead
of following Hencken's strategy."
"But what can you expect,"
queried Stager. "Semchyshen and
Downie are freshmen-in fact, this
is the f i r s t competitive 500
Downie's ever swam. And Stuart

(Isaac) was swimming against the+
best breaststroker in the country,1
and probably the world. We were
simply too green."
The meet started on a bad note
for Michigan-they trailed 15-1
after two events. A loss in the
400-yard medley relay was ex-I
pected, but the Wolverines had
hoped for better than Semchy-
shen's third in the 1000.
Semchyshen was upset with his
performance but sprinter Jose
Aranha pointed out, "Norm's time
in the 1000 was his best ever by
three seconds. He swam well, it's
just a question of developing bet- I
ter race strategy."
Michigan's fortunes rose momen-
tarily as freshman Gordon Downie
splashed to victory in the 200-yard
freestyle, but moments later, the
Stanford sprinters placed 1-2 in the
50-yard freestyle to give the Cardi-
nals an almost insurmountable 27-7
The Stanford sweep in the sprints
had been predicted, for as Aranha
pointed out, "They've got a guy
(Dave Fairbanks) who has the
best times of the year in the 50
and the 100, and he didn't even
win the race. Dean Anderson's'
time of 21.13 in the 50-yard free-
style set a new pool record."
Then came the. big race of the
evening, with Michigan's Tom
Szuba squaring off against Stan-
ford's John Hencken in the 200-
yard individual medley. Szuba
moved ahead in the butterfly and
backstroke legs, but was. over-
come in the breaststroke, in
which Hencken holds the world
record. Szuba's valiant comeback
in the freestyle fell short.
After Szuba's effort, the Wolver-
ines gained on the Cardinals. Dick

Quint swept the' one and three-me-
ter events as Michigan's ,divers
placed 1-2 at both heights.
Szuba came back to win the 200-
yard butterfly and freshman Fred
Yawger posted his best time ever,
edging 1973 NCAA finalist Brian
Roux for second place.
Despite several setbacks, there
were some bright spots in Mich-
igan's performance. Freestyler
Mark Anderson posted his best
time in the 100, and backstroker
Chris Hanson raced NCAA final-
ist Randy Whitchurch to the wire
before succumbing.
All in all, the meet instilled a
note of optimism into the team,
the coaching staff, and many of the
fans on hand. The Wolverines
should regain their winning ways
when MSU invades Matt Mann
Pool at 4 p.m. today.
