Wolverines plot end,

Icers dump


to Spartan

win streak




After opening the Big Ten sea-
son against Ohio State in Colum-
bus and the giant-killing Iowa s
Hawkeyes, the biggest problem
for the Michigan cagers in facing
Michigan State appeared to be one
of avoiding a letdown against the
unheralded Spartans.
The. rampaging charges of Gus n
Ganakas however, have seen to it
that the Wolverines need no extra
incentive in today's 4:00 meeting i
t in East Lansing. For beside the
throw - away - the - record - book i
notion implicit in all Michigan- 1
Michigan State contests, the Spar-
tans own a seven-game win
streak, two holiday tournament 1
victories, and the loop's second
best season record at 8-2.
True, the Spartans schedule has
been a bit marshmellowy, but sev-
en straight wins, regardless of the
opposition, are hard to quarrel
with.. "We haven't really played

count of the real record per-

the heavies," says Ganakas, "but
still, this team is stronger than'
anybody felt they would be."
The MSU streak started modest-
ly with victories over Western and
Central Michigan. Next came the,

tans knocked off the host team

has done a pretty fair job of co-
ordinating talent himself. With on-
y the addition of sophomore
standout Lindsay Hairston to last
year's 13-11 squad, Ganakas has
molded a winning unit capable of
challenging for the Big Ten title
Teamed with Robinson at guard
will be 5-5 playmaker Gary Ga-
nakas, who has finally thrown off
the "coach's son"' stigma in prov-
ng that the little man can make
t in the Big Ten.
Senior pivotman Bill Kilgore has
finally gotten some rebounding
help in the presence of Lindsay
Hairston. Turning his attention
more to putting the ball in the bas-
ket instead of grabbing it off, Kil-
gore has boosted his scoring out-
put to 16.7 points a game, second
only to Robinson's 23.1.
Hairston has performed well
also, averaging 13.8 a game at a
forward spot. Just a shade be-
hind is 6-5 senior Allen Smith, who
averages 12 points and seven re-j
bounds a contest.
The Spartans plan to run a man-
to-man defense against Michigan's
varied attack. The match-ups will
include Allen Smith on Campy
Russell, Kilgore on Ken Brady,
Hairston on Ernie Johnson, Gana-
kas on Henry Wilmore, and Rob-
inson covering Joe Johnson.
OF THE GARY Ganakas-Henry
Wilmore mis-match, Coach Gana-
kas jokingly said he hopes that
"Wilmore will see who's guard-
ing him and immediately become
overconfident." He admitted ear-
lier in the week that Michigan
State may do some shifting of de-
fenses. "I don't think we can
stay with them man-to-man all the
way," he lamented.
Ganakas' respect for the op-
position is echoed by his counter-
part, Johnny Orr. "This is State's
finest team in a long, long time,"
commented Orr. "They're tall and
Orr is riding high on the team's

success after taking some heavy
abuse during the non-conference
portion of the schedule. His sticky
zone defense gave iowa fits, and
the defense as a whole, has made
up for a lot of early season defi-
Orr would not go as far as to
say that his team has jelled. "You
can lose momentum just as fast as
you gain it," he said. "But right
now, we've got as much confi-
dence as we've had at any time."
Speaking of the Iowa game, Orr
reflected, "We didn't shoot well,
but we controlled the game and
played with poise."
Michigan will probably go with
the zone defense again today. If
they do switch to a man-to-man,
Joe Johnson will draw the hot-

Grapplers grip 'Cats
HE WOLVERINE GRAPPLERS, fresh from a 31-6 pasting of
Ohio State, take on the Wildcats of Northwestern in a 3:30
meet this afternoon. Coach Rick Bay put his troops through a
tough week of practice in preparation for this Big Ten clash at
Crisler Arena.
Northwestern sports a 1-0 dual meet record, which tech-
nically means that this will be a battle of the unbeatens. Actually
the Wildcats finished fifth in the Midlands Invitational which
was about 20 points behind the Wolverine's fourth place finish.
Northwestern's lone dual meet win was a 31-6 mauling of lowly
"Northwestern was the surprise of the Midlands Tourna-
ment" stated Bay. "And they could pose a few, problems for us
if their top wrestlers win big." Bay also added that, "they're the
kind of team that's either real strong in some weights or real
weak in others."
Those wrestlers who might "pose a few problems" include
All-American Mark Massery. Captain Massery was fifth in the
nation as a sophomore and placed third in the Midlands. At 158
lbs. senior Leo Kocher will be tangling with Wolverine captain
Mitch Mendrygal in a return bout of last year. The Wildcat
decisioned Mendrygal in last year's dual meet. Andre Allen, at
142 lbs., is one of the best sophs in the country and earned a
third place finish in the Midlands.
The Wolverines may get an automatic win at 118 lbs. as
the Wildcats may not be able to field a man at that weight. If
that's the case, Michigan will be off to a good start in chalking
up their fifth straight win of the season.
Tumblers take on Bucks
THE FIRST HALF of a blockbusting Wolverine sports double-
header takes place this afternoon at 1:00 at the Michigan gym-
nastics team hosts Ohio State at Crisler Arena.
The meet is the first of the Big Ten season for the Wolverines
who are young and untried. Coach Newt Loken is looking for a
score of 160 from his tumblers, a score he says, will be "the
starting point for improvement". The Buckeyes, so often the
nemesis of Wolverine athletic squads, should prove to be an easy
victim this afternoon. Reports from their camp indicate that they
are capable of scoring in the 150 range. However, they have three
solid 9.0 scores in Tom Schultz, Tom Hunt, and Bill Hammond.
Michigan young squad is counting heavily upon such estab-
lished stars as all-arounder Ray Gura and floor exercise dynamo
Ward Black.
While the outcome of the meet should not be in doubt, it
should provide a key as to how far Loken's boys can go in an
effort to regain the title it lost to Iowa last year.
