Michigan's undefeated pmen's gymnastics team chal-
lenges the nation's top ranked squad, Indiana State, today
at one p.m. at Crisler Arena.
In what may prove to be "the greatest show on earth,
according to Coach Newt Loken, the 6-0 Wolverines look to
upset a Sycamore squad led by American Olympic teams
qualifier, Kurt Thomas.
"I think just the magnitude of the competition willt
offer the stimulatipn needed to produce top perform.
ances," stated Michigan's Bob Darden, defendiing Big
Ten high bar champion. "I think we have all the
makings to win this meet."
The Wolverines' top score this season, a 207.5 against
Minnesota January 23, has earned them as high as an
eighth place national ranking. However, the Blue will
probably have to exceed even that performance in order to
best Indiana State which boasts the highest tally (214.15) in
collegiate competition this year.;
"We've 'been training really hard for this meet and it
should be evident in the routines," stated co-captain Pierre
Leclerc. "After a good showing this weekend we could
easily be classified in the top three or four in the country."
According to Loken, Michigan will need strong per
formances from all-arounders Harley Danner, Pierre Le-
clerc and freshman Nigel Rothwell, "to match the scores,
of Indiana State's Thomas, Doug Griffith and Mike Papan-
tonio. Thomas, currently ranked first nationally in the all-r
around, won the bronze medal in the 1975 Pan American
Games in Mexico City.

The Wolverines are especially counting on Chuck Ven-'
tura and co-captain Jerry Poyton on the pommel horse;J
Joe Neuenswander and Scott Ponto on rings; and Careys
Culbertson and Darden on high bar to hit on their routines
and provide the edge against the Sycamores.
Michigan will also need floor exercisers Randy
Sakamoto and Chuck Stillerman, vaulters Darden and
Sakamoto and parallel bar wizards Darden and Doug
Shokes to turn in their usual outstanding performances.
"Indiana State is a really good team as far as doing1
an excellent show with difficult routines," said Leclerc.
"We'll really have to be consistent to beat them."
In last year's meeting, the Sycamores downed Michigan
214.35-210.35 at Terre Haute."

Michigan overcame Denver's
unique defense and a game
tempo that bordered on the
lethargic to best the Pioneers,
4-2, last night at Yost Ice Arena.
2-1 lead midway through the
The Wolverines held a slim
third period when Bill Wheeler
took a perfect goal-mouth pass
from fellow freshman Dan Cor-
mier and whipped the puck
through Denver goalie Ernie
Wheeler, who had seen action
in only half of Michigan's pre-
vious 30 games, delighted the
sparse crowd of 3,524 with a
two-step victory dance.
Less than a minute later,
Denver forward Doug Berry
took a high pass from the point
and leisurely stuffed the puck
past Michigan goalie Robbie
Moore to pull the Pioneers with-
in one. But Wolverine Kris
Manery knocked in a rebound
of a John McCahill shot with
less than a minute remaining
to put the game on ice..
Denver employed a 1-4 de-
fense in their own zone, which
slowed down Michigan's offen-
sive play. However, the Pio-
neers were also slow on their
own offensive drives, a problem
that has plagued them all year.
"It was a weird game," com-
mented Michigan coach Dan
Farrell. "It was real slow. They
(Denver) play a strange game.
All year they have played this
way-just hanging in there and
not forcing the play."

stretch run in solid position to
finish second and gain an NCAA

This season, though, another
team has pushed its way into
the limelight. The Michigan
State Spartans have surprised
most of the experts this year,
and if they can surprise Mich-
igan today at 3:05 in East Lans-
ing, they will be only one game
behind the Wolverines in the
race for second.

year where every game is 'the
biggest game'," offered Orr.
"It's a good thing for the
team but tough at the same
time. If we win there, they'll
have six conference lossesand
be out of it. But if they win,
we're tied with Purdue, and
State is only one game back."
After the last meeting of the
two teams, a strong Spartan
performance will actually be
anything but surprising. After
several minutes of trading bas-
kets, MSU broke out to a 15
point lead, and only a tre-
mendous Michigan comeback
allowed the Wolverines escape
with a 66-63 verdict.
State fields a line-up of
Terry Furlow, a 6-5 senior
and the Big Ten's leading
scorer, and Edgar Wilson, a
6-5 junior, at the forwards.
With 6-6 freshman and super
rebounder Greg Kelser at
center the Spartans present a
talented, if small, front line.
The Spartan guards are Bob
Chapman, a 6-2 senior who is
his team's second leading
scorer, and Benny White, the
5-9 senior who burned Michigan
with his outside shooting in the
last intra-state contest.
