Blue

By BOB McGINN
Who would ever have thought
that a nopponent known for its "run
and gun" style would present a
contrast fo a Johnny Orr-coached
team?
Probably not many, but today
in Crisler Arena at 2' P.M. that's
exactly what happens to be tak-
tk ing shape as the undefeated up-
starts from West, Lafayette, the
Purdue Boilermakers, (2-0), take
on the Big Ten leaders, Michigan.
These two time-honored foes
have put on some blazing scoring
derbies over the years, but if first
year Riveter coach Fred Schaus
has anything to say about it, to-
morrow's duel for the conference
lead could be the most freewheel-
ing of all.

super player like Michigan has,"

But the Riveters are 9-3 overall6

so quickly out of the Big Ten:

sell. Should he go deep, the
responsibility falls on Ken Brady
and Ernie Johnson.
Kendrick, meanwhile, is a gifted
one-on-one player whose talents
may be severely blunted by the
zone.
Other Boilermaker starters fig-
ure to be 6-2 freshman Bruce Par-
kinson (9.6 ppg), termed by Pur-
due publicist Ted Haracz as "the
key to our season," 6-2 senior play-
maker Dennis Gamauf (5.3), and
6-7 senior stringbean Jovon Price
(7.3). Two winters ago Price had
a horrendous time of it in Crisler
Arena (0 for 8 from the floor, 0 for
3 at the line.)
Schaus would like to try a man-
to-man against Michigan, but is
apprehensive about the match-ups.
"We'revery concerned about their
two superstars, Wilmore and Rus-
sell. We're thinking seriously of
putting Price, our best defender,
on Wilmore and going with a
guard on Russell."

Whatever he decides to do, the
Wolverines haven't been staying
up nights figuring out a way to
score points. "We'll get a good
shot every time against this out-
fit," Dutcher said.
A factor in this contest which
may work against Michigan is
their lack of depth in the back-
court. Only Greg Buss remains
from the stable of guards Orr
had available earlier. John Kant-
ner transferred, and junior Terry
Tyler will minss his second
straight game due to temporary
ineligibility. He had several in-
completes last semester, and his
status for the remainder of the
campaign won't be known until
Monday.
In today's second vital Big Ten
clash, Minnesota (1J1) visits Indi-
ana (2-0). Other league encounters
find Iowa (1-3) at- Ohio State (0-2),
in a battle of disappointing teams,
and MS'U otwnys.,toWisconsin
(0-3). Illinois (2-1) and Northwes-
tern (0-2) are idle.

ST. TOM'S VICTORIOUS
Pioneers trounce rival Hurons

i".day in Sports

By CHUCK BLOOM
A 33-point outburst by senior
guard Keith Curry, including 16
in the third quarter, led Ann Ar-
bor Pioneers ,top-ranked Michigan
schoolboy team, to an 87-62 win
over cross-town rival Huron High
last night.
Curry, a 5-11 track star for the
Pioneers, garnered 16 of his
team's 20 points in the third stan-
za with spectacular drives and
arching 25-foot jumpers.
Curry took up the scoring slack
as All-Stater Bob Elliott managed
only 13 points. Forwards Kent
Storey and Tom Schneeberger tal-
lied 17 and 10 markers, respective-
IX,.

Schneeberger led the Pioneers
to a first quarter 26-19 lead with
eight points as both teams played
relatively even. But in the' second
quarter, Elliott took command of
the boards and shut off Huron's
mobility in the lane. The 6-8 senior
finished the night with 15 caroms
as Pioneer murdered their oppo-
nents on the boards, 47-26.
In the third quarter, the River
Rats clamped on a full court press
forcing Pioneer into four quick per-
sonal fouls. Then Curry took com-
plete command of the action. With
his superior speed, he blew by his
defenders for easy layups.
Coach Eldon Rouse was pleased

Grap piers gruel in Indiana
THE MICHIGAN wrestling squad will meet the Hoosiers in
Bloomington today and another Wolverine victory is expected
according to the outcome of some recent matches.
Last week Michigan pulled a 22-12 decision over North-
western, a very significant win for the grapplers. Jerry Hubbard
led the Wolverines in the trimming of the Wildcats, followed
closely by teammate Gary Ernst.
The Hoosiers have not fared as well with the MSU champions
soundly bruising the Indiana team 304 in' a recent meeting.
Only two Hoosiers, John Hobbs at 118 lbs., and John .Angel at
126, were victorious in the final decision.,. Lance Becker and
Jim Brown will be expected to surpress these two threats in
today's match.
Tankers set to dunk Spartans
Il' ALL THE breaks go against us we will lose the meet,"
uttered Michigan swim coach Gus Stager on the meet against
the Spartans today. If all of Michigan's top swimmers literally
break something this might be true, however the chances are
more records than anything will be broken by the tankers.
Michigan State, especally 'in their own pool, will not be the
pushove , that most of the Blue's opponents have been so;f
Michigan State was 19th in the NCAA championship meet last
year in comparison to Michigan's ninth and coach Stager figures
the Spartans as a good fourth in the Big Ten this year.

"They're leading their conference
and will be a factor in our dis-

commented.
Elliott is one of the highly-sought
after schoolboys seniors this year
with overtures being made by such
schools as Michigan, Kentucky,
Wake Forest, Purdue and Fred
Snowden and Arizona .
"Bob (Elliott) is interested in

Michigan is one of the schools he's
interested in. In fact, he'll be there

Rouse also praised the defen-
sive play of Curry, of whom little
interest, surprisingly, has been
expressed.
"I can't understand why no one
wants Curry," he said. "Not only
is he an outstanding basketball
player but a fine sprinter in track."

minutes of the final period and
the Boston Celtics pulled away,
for their eighth consecutive Nation-
al basketball Association victory
last night, a 124-104 decision over
the Seattle Supersonics.
Havlicek, held to 10 points for
three periods, broke open the game
after the Celtics entered the
fourth quarter with an, 86-79 lead.
The victory was Boston's 38th
in 45 games, a torrid pace which
threatens the Los Angeles Lakers'-
record of 69 regular season vic-
tories, set last year. The Sonics
hit on 14 of their first 19 floor shots
and charged to a 29-16 lead with

33 points, Havlicek finished with
26 and Don Chaney had 21.
Seattle was topped by Spencer
Haywood with 25 points and DickI

throws in 16 attempts, although he
played only 32 minutes because of
foul trouble. McAdoo added 24
points, Kauffman 21 and Randy
