By GEORGE HASTINGS
Last season the Big Ten basket-
ball race came down to a two-
team duel-the Michigan Wolver-
ines against the Minnesota Goph-
ers. The match was classic-
Michigan, a freewheeling, high-
scoring outfit, against the low-
scoring but defensive minded
Gophers.
Minnesota, the defensive team,
came out the victor. The Wol-
verines at times during the sea-
son suffered inevitable offensive
lapses and their defense couldn't
pull them through.
The defense was cut to ribbons
early against Ohio State, failed to
keep the opposition's big men out
of the middle in a loss to Purdue,
and then finally yielded up 96
points to a Michigan State team
that wasn't that good.
ORR REMEMBERS the bitter
losses he suffered last year, and
he also remembers his biggest
win-the 64-52 triumph here over
Minnesota itself. For it was in that
game that the Wolverines proved
that they can also play defense if
they want to.
In that contest, the Michigan men
harassed the Gophers all over the
floor, and sparked by numerous
steals by Henry Wilmore and
Ernie Johnson, they beat Minne-
sota at its own game by keeping
the Gophers away from the bas-
ket.
So this year, Orr is changing his
emphasis. Defense has been the
first and foremost matter so far
as the Wolverines warm up for the
upcoming season. Currently, Orr
is in the process of turning a

evident at any Wolverine practice.
Long hours have been spent in
tedious drills as Orr attempts to
make avoiding picks, defensive
switching and opportunistic double-
teaming second, nature to his play-
ers.
The Wolverines defensive intent
this year is to keep the pressure
on at all times, force mistakes on
the part of the opposition, and then
using their incredible team-wide
quickness to capitalize on them,
The hard work seems to be tak-
ing effect, as in practice the de-
fensive play of the Wolverines is
better than it has ever been.
"We're happy with our defense
so far," says Orr. "It's improving
every day, and at times we are
playing excellently. Our only prob-
lem now is to sustain the level of
play, to play well consistently and
not just in spurts."
Orr has a great deal to work
with. His four big men, Ken Brady,
Campy Russell, John Lockard, and
Ernie Johnson, all reported in ex-
cellent shape and are very quick
for their size, especially Russell
and Johnson, whose fast hands!
will mean a lot of steals this year
for the Wolverines.

Kantnor for the starting berth.
But Orr is not ignoring offense
in his early season practice. The
Wolverines are working out of two
different offensive alignments, both
of which are designed to make use
of the special talents of the in-
dividual Michigan players.
In the Wolverine's "regular" of-
fense, as Orr calls it, both guards
stay basically on the outside, and
the offense relies heavily on the
cornermen and on Brady in a high
post for scoring punch.
With Russell at one forward, the
Wolverines again have the kind
of shooting from the corner which
they missedawhen Wilmore moved
to guard last season. Russell's
drives also are effective in freeing
Brady for passes for easy buckets
in the middle.
THE OTHER OFFENSE, termed
the "stack," is more structured to
use the abilities of Wilmore. In
this attack, Wilmore goes inside,
where his drives and moves are so
effective, leaving only the other
guard out on top by himself.
Orr says that he intends to use
both offenses a great deal, depend-!
ing on the opponent and situation.
