AS IF DISHEARTENING, last-second losses and disappointing
play overall haven't done enough to hinder Michigan basket-
ball fortunes, developments of the past few days have added
injury to insult in what has to be the most frustrating campaign
in recent memory. Heading into the return bout with Michigan
State this Saturday, the already-depleted Wolverine ranks were
further jolted this week by the loss of John Lockard, who under-
went knee surgery yesterday, and Greg Buss, who will be side-
lined indefinitely, also with knee problems.
Thus the list of players who started the season but will not
finish it, has grown to five. In chronological order, junior college
transfer Bill Meyer quit the team before seeing any varsity
action, sharpshooting sophomore John Kantner quit the team,
quit school, and was last seen headed for the hardcourts at
Mississippi State. Next came the news that junior Terry Tyler
had succumbed to academic pressures and would once again be
ineligible for the remainder of the season.
And now, within three days, Buss and Lockard exit via the
knee-injury route. Lockard had been slated to start in this
Saturday's game after collecting splinters for two months. But
in going after a loose ball in practice Tuesday, he turned his
knee the wrong way and felt it buckle under. 18 hours later, he
went under the knife to repair both damaged cartilage and
Buss sprained his knee in the Illinois game last week and
will be on the shelf indefinitely. His future is in doubt, not only
for the remainder of the basketball season, but also for the
1 aseball campaign, where he held down the starting centerfield
job last year.
Earlier in the year, doctors discovered that freshman pros-
pect Tim Kuzma had some serious heart problems. Further
complications have postponed possible corrective surgery and
Kuzma has continued to practice with the team. But his athletic
career remains in jeopardy.
' In problems of less serious proportion, Campy Russell and
C.J. Kupec have endured bouts with the flu, London or other-
wise. Kupec played at less than full strength at Illinois, and
Campy has been depositing his last meal on the court occasion-
ally for a month.
When the ledger is tallied up, Michigan is left with six play-
ers who have played on a regular basis this year. Six others
have suited up, while seeing only token action. One of the latter,
freshman Wayman Britt will get a baptism of fire Saturday.
Britt won the starting nod for the Michigan State tussle over
regular point man Joe Johnson, who has failed to supply any
scoring punch in the last few outings.
Two other freshmen, Chuck Rogers and Lloyd Schinnerer

have seen action only in varsity-reserve contests. They also find
themselves now among the only 12 players available for varsity
The rash of injuries obviously makes its presence felt in
practice where 12 men try to fill 15 or more positions in various
drills. "We can't even scrimmage anymore," moaned a be-
leaguered Johnny Orr.
Indeed, the present situation dampens the outlook for even
a respectable finish in the Big Ten scramble. Still, the team goes
hard in practice, spirits remain generally high, and once again,
the "Beat State" jerseys have been worn all week in practice.
At this point in the season, Johnny Orr is not merely play-
ing out the string. He wants to win the remaining ballgames
very badly. Who knows? Maybe the latest run of bad breaks
will succeed where talent and hard work have mysteriously

"I was gaining on him but I had too much to
make up. I finished half a second behind him. An-
other two meters and we would've had third place
and the bronze."
But that has been the story of Jose's career. He
has always been so close, yet so far; as if he were
snakebitten. Just missing in the Olympics and a
close second in the Pan-American Games are
only a couple of examples of his luck.
But no better example can be given than last
year's Big Ten Championships in East Lansing.
Aranha qualified for the finals of the 100-yard free-
style and with no Indiana swimmers in the finals,
it looked like Aranha's race. But the same prob-
lems, start and turns, plagued him, and at the 50,
he was behind Ohio State's Gail Catt.
But coming off the final turn, a rare good turn
for Aranha, Catt was faltering and Aranha's
strength was beginning to tell. He caught Catt
right at the end and most spectators thought he
had touched out the Buckeye. But because of a
fault in the touchplates used to automatically re-
cord the times, Aranha's time had to come off the

stop watches - normally used as a backup sys-
tem. After several minutes of conferring, the
judges gave the win to Catt, even though Aranha's
time was faster.
"I really thought I was cheated on that," Aranha
said. "But it was so close, it was hard to tell. I
still think I beat him."
Michigan coach Gus Stager recognizes Aranha's
problems of adjustment but also recognized an-
other important factor. "Jose is one of the most
mature Latin Americans I've ever seen. He knows
exactly why he came to college and what his fu-
ture is. He came here to learn. He really has his
feet on the ground and he'll be a real success in
later life."
Aranha plans to go into business back home in
Brazil after graduation. At 22, he is growing tired
of swimming. He wants to finish his education and
go home. But before he does, Aranha wants to
win at least one Big Ten title to remove the snake-
bitten label from him and to prove to himself that
all the work he went through to adjust was suc-
