When Ron Warhurst first as-
sumed control of Michigan's
cross country program in the
fall of '74, the team had gone
twenty years without a Big Ten
title.
Now, in the fall of '76, War-
hurst's harriers raced to their,
third straight conference crown.
Such is the new-found success
of Michigan cross country.
THE MOST RECENT suc-
cess for the team came about

last Saturday at Glen Ellyn, Ill.,
where the harriers ran to vic-
tory in this year's 'champion-
ship race.
The harriers' triumph came
as quite a surprise to many,
considering that three of Michi-
gan's top five runners were
sidelined with various ailments.
Accordingly, most observers
rated the Wolverines as a long-
shot at best to defend their
crown.
But, during thearace,the har-
riers turned in an outstanding
team effort, convincing the Big
Ten that they are still number
one.

for fourth with Michigan State,
behind runner-up Illinois and
third place Minnesota.
M E A N W H I L E, Michi-
gan's top runner senior Greg
Meyer placed third, closely fol-
lowed by teammates Bill Dona-
kowski and Steve Elliot, finish-
ing fifth and sixth, respective-
ly.
Coach Warhurst viewed the
three high finishers as the key
to victory.
"Meyer, Donakowski and El-
liot all responded in fine form,"
said Warhurst. "Elliot passed
four guys in the last half mile
and Donakowski always runs
super for us in the big nesC".

"They really killed us at

we've put in three hard weeks
of training, looking forward to
another chance at them," ex-
plained Warhurst. "If we hadl
won at Notre Dame, we may

practice."
AS IT TURNED out,- the
team's intense preparation for
the race paid off, as they charg--
ed off the starting line, holding
on to four of the first seven
places at the one-mile mark.
"Wisconsin was afraid of us,"
Warhurst said. "We intimidated
them from the start with the
fast pace."

iVloses goes nomadic

By The Associated Press
UNIONDALE, N. Y. - Can
Moses Malone lead the Houston
Rockets out of the .500 doldrums
and into the upper echelons of
the National Basketball Asso-
ciation?
"Moses is going to be a domi-
nant player in this league,"
says Houston Coach Tom Nis-
salke. "It's very rare that you
come across a young player
with his combination of talents,
and when you do you grab
him."
But grabbing the 6-10, 220-
pound Malone and holding him
have been two different
things. Although he's only 21
years old and would normally
Big 10 Standings
By The Associated Press

be a junior in college, the
Rockets are his fifth pro
team.
"I'mhappy to be here," Ma-
lone said. "I hope I'll stay for a}
while."
Malone's saga has been a
strange one ever since he'
jumped from Petersburg High
School in Virginia to the Utah
Stars of the American Basket-
ball -Association.
He broke the hearts of the
University of Maryland, which
had beaten out more than 200"
other schools in the Malone
recruiting sweepstakes.
He had a brig rookie season
at Utah, averaging 18.6 points
and 14f6 rebounds a game. Then
came 'chaos. The Utah fran-
chise folded and he was sold
to St. Louis early last year.
After the merger, he went to
Portland in the dispersal draft
but never got to play for the
Trail Blazers, who sold him to'
Buffalo during the preseason. f
That stop lasted less than 'a
week, then it was on to Houston
in exchange for two No. 1 draft
picks plus cash.
Ticket trouble
COLUMBUS, Ohio*-
Woody Hayes, Ohio State's foot-
ball coach, conceded yesterday

that it's almost impossible to
keep college players from sell-
ing or trading their tickets.
"We do everything we can
to discourage it, the univer-
sity and the Big Ten," Hayes
responded to comments from
two of his former players now
in the National Football
League.
Safety Tim Fox of the New
England Patriots has been
quoted as saying players swap
their season books for the use
of cars from automobile deal-
ers.
Pick Middleton, a San Diego
Chargers linebacker and for-
mer Ohio State co-captain like
Fox, has said he sold tickets
for his college spending
money.
"It's impossi'le to complete-
ly discourage it," Hayes said of
the practice. "I've never in
any way said We're perfect. But
we sure as hell work in that
direction."
Ohio State home tickets are
especially valuable since the
Big Ten school has had 49
straight sellouts in Ohio Sta-
dium.
The Buckeyes always have
more requests for-season books
than they can fill.
