Special To The Daily
WHEW! MICHIGAN pulled out a tough one last night against
the surprisingly'" scrappy Dayton squad, and it was the j
Wolverines front line that did the job on the Flyers. Campy!
Russell, Ken Brady and Ernie Johnson combined for 66 ofI
Michigan's 81 points and pulled off 28 caroms.
The big force was Brady who dominated the area around
the bucket on defense and pumped in 24 points. The big man
had a reversal of his Brigham Young performance where he
was out-jumped and out-muscled by Kresimir Cosic.
Coach Johnny Orr praised Brady, saying "He played a
great game." It must be realized however that Dayton is
much smaller than Michigan up front and has recently been
maligned for lack of board strength after a recent lop-
sided loss to Louisville.
For the second straight game it was the Big "E" who got
the Wolverine offense rolling. Ernie came in off the bench after
starter John Lockard drew three quick personals in five minutes.
Arms swaying and energetic as always, Johnson broke free
for several open shots under the basket to lead a Michigan
comeback at the end of the first half
Johnson was benched at the start because Orr wanted to
give, Lockard a chance to get himself together. Orr said that
Lockard "is having a. tough time coming in off the beinch."
That's an understatement. Orr feels that' he needs Lock's
boarding strength to win the Big Ten.
Russell looked looser on offense and had a fine day on
the boards, but Campy still hasn't let loose like he can. He
had trouble again with fouls-three charging calls-and all
were blatant ones, but Campy seems to be moving better
For once the Wolverines were moving well both on offense
and on defense. After a sluggish start when Michigan fell 11
points behind, the Wolverine cagers came alive. Mixing in a
zone press with an occasional two-one-two zone defense and a
hustling fast break, the Wolverines' whittled that lead to three
points at the intermission and kept coming in the second half.
Orr's defensive changes kept the Flyers off balance just
enough to temporarily cool down hot shooting Don Smith and
Mike Sylvester. And those two were red hot all the night.
Smith and Sylvester ripped the courts with long range jump-
ers for 25 and 28 points, respectively. Smith, a pure shooter if
there ever was one, hit seven of 12 from the field. He was giving
Joe Johnson fits in the early going, and then hit three straight
bombs against the zone to put Dayton only three back with 1:41
left inthe game.
Assistant Wolverine coach Dick Honig called Smith, "The
best player we've played against so far. And Sylvester isn't
far behind:" At times both were almost unreal as they sank
unbalanced long range shots.. Smith is an artist at getting
open shots with his head fakes and moving off picks. Joe
Johnson found this out last night.
The -13,452 fans at Dayton Arena went wild as only Ohio
fans can at every Sylvester-Smith whish, but they also came
down hard on the officials. Debris was tossed onto the court {
several times as the fans disliked the Flyers being called for
seven more personals than Michigan. However, this ranting
didn't rattle Michigan, especially Wilmore, who on one occasion
coolly stole the ball after a boisterous display by the crowd and
fed Campy perfectly for a bucket.
Last night's win was Michigan's third win out of a gruelling
four games in an eight day stretch.
"That isn't easy. Winning three of four-that's a pretty
good accomplishment. Maybe this will bring us together," com-
mented Orr. At least for a change Michigan played together.

Tankers bla/st Ilini;
frosh Szuba excels
Special To The Daily
CHAMPAIGN-"That Tom Szuba is one helluva swimmer," said
Illinois coach Don Sammons after his squad had been defeated by
Michigan 69-54 in swimming action yesterday.
Szuba, the Dearborn frosh flash won three individual events and
sparked the Wolverine win over the improved and "fighting" Illini.
His performance denied Illinois its first dual win over Michigan.
"He (Szuba) is so versatile that Bus (Stager) can use him anywhere
and win," Sammons stated. "He was definitely the difference. He is
going to be a great swimmer soon."
The meet started well for the Wolverines as they cracked the pool
record for the 400 ygrd medley relay. Don Peterson, struggling over a
cold, Larry Day, Stu Isaac, and Ray McCullough turned in a time of
3:36.4 to beat out a determined Illini quartet.
Szuba won the 1000 yard freestyle with a time of 10:00.3, which
included a time of 56.9 for the last hundred yards. Dan Fishburn
finished third.
Illinois was an inspired team and it showed in their five new
varsity records. George Congreve won the 200 yard freestyle with
fellow Illini Jim Fieldhouse second. Mark Anderson finished third for
the Wolverines. Greg Scott, one of the many fine freshmen for Illinois
swam a smart, evenly paced race to beat Day in the 200 yard butterfly.
Congreve and Fieldhouse finished one-two again in the 100 yard free-
But when the chips were down Szuba was there. He and Isaac were
one-two in the 200 yard individual medley. Szuba touched out Isaac
in the last five feet. Szuba also won the 200 yard backstroke as the
lone Wolverine entrant.
Newly discovered 50 yard freestyler McCullough won his second
consecutive race over some fine Illini sprinters. Pat Stevens surprised
Illinois' Joe Tanner, tying him for second place.
Isaac won the 200 yard breaststroke which was definitely not a
surprise, with teammate Pat Bauer placing second.
Diving was another sweep for Michigan with junior Steve Schen-
thal winning both the one meter and three meter events. Pete Agnew
was second in the one meter and third in the three meter. Senior Chris
Newcomer was second in the three meter.
All those divers have met the NCAA diving standard in their first
week of action. The diving which was erratic last year seems to have
improved early this season, and this was without either top diver
Joe Crawford or Coach Dick Kimball.
The meet ended with Michigan losing a meaningless 400 yard free
style relay as the outcome was already decided.
