Spartans challenge crippled


Big Ten games this week feature
significant confrontations of na-
tional interest. Unfortunately, the
sellout at Crisler Arena this aft-
ernoon between the Wolverines and
Michigan State is not among them.
Incredibly, Michigan has been
doing worse off the court than dur-
ing the games themselves. The lat-
est casualties are forward John
Lockard and guard Greg Buss.
Lockard had been scheduled to
start today until he injured his
knee in practice Monday. He is
lost for the season. Buss will defi-
nicely not play today, but may
be ready to come back sometime
t k

before the season is over.
Coach John Orr plans one chahge
in the starting lineup with fresh-
man guard Wayman Britt replacing
Joe Johnson. "Joe's had a lot of
pressure on him," Orr explained.
"Wayman's been playing well, the
starting lineup hasn't done well
lately and we thought it was a
good time to make a change."
Orr categorically denied rumors
that Henry Wilmore would be
switched to forward, and Campy
Russell to guard, for today's game.
"Definitely untrue," was his only'
Orr "doubts very seriously" that
the Spartans will have anything
new up their sleeves. He plans to
challenge the Spartans with a
"ready to play anything" defense.
"The game will dictate what we'll
do," Orr said mysteriously. "I
won't be any more definite than
Michigan's injury streak has
forced Orr to search for added
bench strength. Freshmen Chuck
Rogers, Lloyd Schinnerer and Tim
Kuzma rejoined the varsity follow-
ing the demise of the varsity re-
serve team.
"I expect a close game," Orr
conjectured. "Most of ours are. Ev-
ery game except one has been
close, and there's no reason to be-
lieve this one will be any different.
"We've had excellent practices
this week, and I think the team is
in good shape to make a turn-
Orr has reason to be optimistic.
While MSU's Mike Robinson is the

Today, Coach Gus Ganakas' menj
will be trying to recover from
their worst game of the season, an
embarrassing 85-72 loss to Notre
Dame. MSU certainly will have to
do a better job defending againstG
Henry Wilmore than they did in
Jenison Fieldhouse, and will have
to penetrate Michigan's defenses
more if they want a good chances
of perpetrating the Blue's tailspin.
Last week, Illinois' Harv Schmidt
remarked, "I pity the team Michi-
gan plays next week." Today, we'll
find out whether he was right.
A national audience, looking in
on a special 150-station hookup, isr
already drooling in anticipation of
the Minnesota-Ohio State clash in
notorious St. John's Arena.
Ohio Governor John Gilligan and
Minnesota Governor Wendell An-
derson will be there, as will
Minnesota's Ron Behagan and the
Buckeye's Luke Witte, whose fight
last year proved that both players
may have chosen the wrong sport
when they took up basketball.
Both coaches are nervously as-
suring the press that they expect

only one sport to be presented to4
the howling Columbus mob. "We're
treating it no different than any
other game. I have no special in-
structions for our players," plati-
tudinized OSU coach Fred Taylor.
Minnesota's Bill Musselman
called it "just another game
against a tough opponent."
Ohio officials hope that their tra-
ditionally bloodthirsty rooters will
not interfere with what could be a
most interesting game. Minnesota
is the clear favorite. Its front line,
with Big Ten MVP Jim Brewer at
center apad a vastly improved Be-
hagan at forward, has been better
than ever since 6'8" Clyde Tur-
ner was converted to guard in a
successful experiment.
Ohio State features super guard
Allan Hornyak, but he is surround-
ed with an erratic supporting cast.

The most significant game this
week will be in West Lafayette, In-
diana, where the dangerous Pur-
due Boilermakers will entertain the
league-leading Indiana Hoosiers.
Indiana, stunned Monday night by
Ohio State, should be more than
ready for combat, while Purdue
will be going all out to change the
Big Ten race from a chase to a
The Boilermakers haven't lost at
friendly Mackey Arena since Alley
Oop graduated from Kindergar-
ten. Sophomore center John Gar-
rett and junior forward Frank Ken-
drick have lived up to their press-
book superlatives, giving Coach
Fred Schaus the strong inside at-
tack and rebounding he was look-
ing for when the season began.
Indiana's very young team faces
its most tension-packed game of
the season. Purdue-Indiana games
are traditionally hard-fought even
when the only thing at stake is the
difference between ninth and tenth
Illinois needs the win it is ex-
pected to get at Wisconsin in or-

Two other Big Ten teams will
avoid sinking deeper in the stand-

opponents in a nighttime double-
header at the Chicago Stadium.
Northwestern should do no better
against Loyola of Chicago than it
has done against anyone else, while
the Iowa Hawkeyes will try to en-
hance the Big Ten's nresti e when

The Badgers have a terrible re-
cord (2-6) and even managed to
lose to Northwestern, but they
