Two t e a m s improved their
chances of post-season action this
weekend and another team's
chances were just about shot. In
Minneapolis, Musselman's muscle-
men derailed Michigan's fast
break, 98-80 and handed tail-ender
Northwestern its tenth conference
loss, 90-74.
Ron Behagen, one of the confer-
ence's premier forwards led the
week-end onslaught with a total of
45 points, while balding Clyde Tur-
ner the 6-8 guard garnered 44 and
Jim Brewer added 39.
Minnesota currently is playing
its best ball of the year and with
Purdue faltering, Iowa a n d
Northwestern bothalso
rans, Minnesota looks like a sure
bet for the Big Ten's NCAA
berth.
Down at Bloomington, coach
Bobby Knight's hopes for an NCAA
spot rest rather weakly on Pur-
due's ability to beat Minnesota
and then on his own team's amility
to beat Minnesota in a play-off at
a neutral court. A more likely oc-1
currence would be Indiana finish-
ing second to Minnesota and re-
ceiving a bid to the National In-
L.A. no-no
irks. Model!
CLEVELAND W/) - Cleveland
Browns owner Art Modell said
Tuesday he has filed charges with
National Football League Commis-
sioner Pete Rozelle accusing the
Los Angeles Rams of tampering.
Modell said the charges were made
"in connection with the sudden
resignation of assistant coach Ray
Prochaska."
After leaving, Prochaska, who
had been under contract with the
Browns, later joined the new
Rams' coaching team being put to-
gether by Chuck Knox.
Modell said his charges allege
that "a person or persons unknown
in the Los Angeles Rams' organiz-
ation . . . violated the constitution
and by-laws of the league."
The Browns' owner 'said in a
prepared statement he has asked
Rozelle for "a complete investi-
gation of the facts related to the
Prochaska matter and that if the
Rams are found guilty, appropriate
disciplinary action be taken."

vitational Tournament, (NIT), at
Madison Square Garden.
Last Saturday at Bloomington,
Indiana led by solid Steve Down-
ing's 18 points, two clutch foul
shots by sophomore Steve Green
and three last minute steals, nosed
out ninth place Wisconsin 57 - 55.
Coach Knight, infuriated with his
teams lack of support from the
home town crowd, commented:
"I'm embarrassed to put a team on
the floor on the home court that
doesn't support the team more
than this crowd has supported our
team in the last two ball games.
that we've played."
The Boilermakers plans for
post - season action were upset
by Wisconsin Monday night, 71-
63. Purdue expected to beat ninth
place Wisconsin and split their
last two games, one with Min-
nesota and the finale with Indi-
ana and earn a bid to the NIT.
But with Minnesota and Indiana
playing so well it will be tough
for Purdue to achieve anything
higher than an 8-6 Big Ten slate
S and a good seat for post-sea-

son play.'
Illinois, on the other hand sud-
denly moved into prime conten-
tion for an NIT bid. Their present
record, 7-4, could easily end up 10-
4 should they beat Ohio State,
Northwestern, and Iowa. In addi-
tion to their fine record in the
tough Western Conference, Illinois
also possesses one of the top for-
wards in the country, Nick Weath-
erspoon, whose presence is a valu-
able plus with the tournament in-
vitation committee.
Big Ten Standings
CONFERENCE

Illinois moved into their position
by beating Michigan State on Sat-
urday, 81-71, and beating Michi-
gan Monday night 96-89. Weather-
spoon led the weekend barrage by
hitting a total of 62 points; he was
aided by Jeff Dawson's 38 point
total.
Ohio State beat Northwestern
Saturday, 90-81, but lost to Michi-
gan State Monday 87-83. Allen
Hornyak continues to lead the
Buckeyes as he contributed 54
points this weekend.
Michigan State won one and
lost 'one this weekend as Nick
Weatherspoon passed State's
Mike Robinson in the Big Ten
scoring race when he outscored
the Spartan 32 to 19, Illinois won
81-71. But the former Northeast-
ern High gunner recovered his
eye Monday, as he collected 32
points in shooting MSU past Ohio
State, 87-83.
Wisconsin played surprisingly
tough ball as it lost to Indiana 57-
55 and upset Purdue 71-63. Leon
Roberts led the renaissance as he
collected 35 points for his weekend.

Contemplation of the grey fog of obscurity which
commonly attends the offerings of the minor sports
program leads one to paraphrase Abraham Lincoln
by noting, 'the world will little not nor long re-
member what they do here . ..
Though this lack of -recognition is, in some re-.
spects, inevitable and not soon likely to be reme-
died, it remains an unfortunate fact that the many
triumphs of the minor sport squads receive little
mention.
LAST SATURDAY, for example, a squad of
slight renown, the Michigan women's Speed Swim-
ming Team, coached by Johanna High, captured
second-place in the Big Ten Meet of the League's
women's swimming teams held in East Lansing.
The Michigan State and Michigan contingents,
with scores of 406 and 376 respectively, finished
far ahead of all the other conference competition
which was paced by the distant third and fourth
place showings of Indiana and Northwestern.
Team mentor High cited the "really good effort
on the part of all the swimmers" which brought
the team its fine runner-up finish, an outcome, all
in all, deemed satisfactory by High though defi-
nite expectations that the Michigan team would
prove the Meet's best aggregation of swimmers
had once been entertained.
On first thought, it might well seem that there
is precious little in a second-place finish in the.
largely unheralded competition of Big Ten wo-
men's swimming which would warrant the proc-
lamation of one's glory to the winds. But the per-
formance of the Michigan team, worthy of men-
tion in any respect, is especially notable in view
of the circumstances of the Meet.

The Michigan swimmers took ten of fifteen
events and in all ten they established record times.
Marks were set in the 200 and 400 yard medley
relays as well as the 200 and 400 yard freestyle re-
lays. Additionally, Laura Pasternak swam to re-
cord times in the 50 and 100 yard backstroke com-
petition wth times of 29.0 and 1:02.2.
Maggie Stevens surpassed the previous record
times in the 50 and 100 yard butterfly by posting
times of 27.5 and 1:00.5 and Laura Novak maintain-
ed the pattern established by bettering two records
herself in the 100 and 200 yard individual medley
races. Her times of 1:03.4 and 2:17.3now represent
the fastest marks for the Meet in those events. The
Michigan State team, fully funded by that school
and under the instruction of a University-employed
coach for the past six years, set just two records.
SIGNIFICANTLY, the MSU squadenjoyed a de-
cided advantage in the number of swimmers with
30 to Michigan's eleven. This is to be expected of
the host team.
Of the marked discrepancy, High later recalled,
"I knew the night before that they (MSU) had it.
So we just resigned ourselves to do the best we
could."
Despite their resignation to the stark fact that
their lack of depth would effectively cripple their
efforts toward the Meet championship, they set
out to take the records and that they did most
effectively. High commented, "We set the records
by a good margin, and they'll stand for quite a
while before they're broken."
She asserted the Meet as one which pitted "a
quality team against a quantity team" and an ex-
amination of the Meet results provide little with
which to dispute her statement.
