While Bold Forbes will be trying to win
the second jewel in the triple crown of
horse racing in tomorrow's Preakness,
the Michigan track team will attempt
to win the final portion of the Big Ten's
triple crown of track.
The Wolverines have already won the
first two legs, taking the cross-country
title and the indoor track championship.
Today and tomorrow, Jack Harvey's
squad will sprint after the outdoor track
championship.
Second-place finisher in the indoor
meet, Wisconsin rates as a slight favor-
ite to derail Michigan.
"We feel we have a real good shot to
win," said Harvey. "But Wisconsin's a
more formidable opponent than it was
indoors. It's shaping un to be a two-
team race, with (defending champion
aqd host) Illinois rating an outside
shot."
Illinois was a legitimate threat to
defend its 1975 crown, until Illini
coach Gary Weineke suspended ace

Ehizuelen and hurdler Al Melton.
The 76th running of the meet will see
a flock of new records set, with nine
races being run in metric distances
for the first time.
Individtally, the Wolverines have only
one defending champion back from last
year's outdoor meet, where they finish-
ed fifth. Mike McGuire won the six-mile
rin a year ago, but will be hard-pressed
to follow-un with a win in the 10,000
meters, today.
In addition to fighting off the chal-
lenge of Illinois' three-time All-Ameri-
can Craig Virgin, Wisconsin's Mark
Johnson and teammates Bill Donakow-
ski and Jav Anstaett, McGuire must
battle a blood virus that has hampered
him this season.
Besides McGuire, five other cham-
pions return to defend their crowns.
Virgin, last year's winner of the
three-mile is favored in the 5,000
meter run against upstarts McGuire,
Steve Plasencia of Minnesota and

The Gophers' Glenn Bullick captured
last year's pole vault title but will face
a stiff challenge from Jim Laz of Illi-
nois, Michigan's Jim Stokes and Bob
Crites of Indiana. Laz, whose father
was conference pole vault champ 25
years ago is the only one of the afore-
mentioned quartet to clear 17 feet.
Indiana boasts two returning champs
in hurdler Phil Stapp and discus flinger
Greg Price. The Illini's Jerry Finis is
Price's top challenger, while Michigan's
trio of fine freshman hurdlers, Charles
Crouther, Arnett Chisholm and Don
Wheeler along with the hurdles them-
selves stand in Stapp's way.
Iowa's Bill Knoedel is favored to de-
fend his high jump championship
against the challenge of colleague Bill
Hansen and Noel Rubel of Purdue.
The Wolverines' Greg Meyer is a
strong favorite to regain the steeple-
chase championship which he won as a
freshman in 1974. Meyer has recorded
the best time in the Big Ten in the

perforner to qualify for the NCAA's in
that event.
Michigan is also favored to win
the mile-relay with the team of Jeff
McLeod, Jim Grace. Dave Furst
and Dave Williams. Williams, a two-
time indoor Big Ten champion, has
not had a good outdoor season, and
a return to form this weekend by the
Muskegon speedster would greatly
enhance the Wolverines' chances of
taking the team title.
In the sprints, Iowa's Bobby Lawson,
the Wisconsin tandem of Tariq Mughal
and Larry Johnson, and Michigan's
Doug Hennigar are favored.
Michigan's Dave Furst, the conference
champion in the 880 indoors, will battle
a trio of Badgers headed by Mark Sang
and Purdue's Steve Muck.
In the horizontal jumps, Sylvester Wil-
son of Indiana will attempt to regain his
1974 crown, while Ohio State's John Da-
vis and Glenn Marriott will duel Michi-
gan's Abe Butler and Mark Bohlke,

Nets eliminate Nuggets;
Habs gun down Flyers

UNIONDALE, N. Y. - John
Williamson led a furious charge
with 16 fourth - quarter points,
and Julius Erving scored 31
points as the New York Nets
rallied for a pulsating 112-106
victory over the Denver Nug-
gets last night to win the
American Basketball Associa-
tion championship.
The Nets, in capturing the
league title for the second time
in three years, stormed back
from a 22-point third-quarter
deficit before overcoming the
Nuggets and winning the best-
of-seven series 4-2.
New York also had to with-
stand a 42-point effort by Den-
ver's sensational rookie David
Thompson and a 30-point per-
formance by the Nuggets' vet-
eran center Dan Issel .
Beginner's luck
P H I L A D E L P H I A-
Rookie Rick Chartraw, in his
first National Hockey League
playoff game, scored at 9:16 of
the third period to give the
Montreal Canadiens a 3-2 vic-
tory over the Philadelphia Fly-
ers last night.
The victory, Montreal's first

in Philadelphia since Oct. 25,
1973, boosted the Canadiens to
a 3-0 stranglehold in the best-
of-seven Stanley Cup final.
De Jesus joins
Blue netters
Michigan's hopes of defending
its Big Ten tennis title this week-
end have been bolstered by the
addition of senior Freddie De-
Jesus to the squad that will com-
pete in Minneapolis today and
tomorrow.
DeJesus manned the second
singles position for the Wolver-
ines in 1973, '74 and '75. This
weekend the Puerto Rico native
who did not compete in the dual
meets in order to concentrate on
his pre-law studies will replace
Jim Holman in the third singles
position.
Holman will drop to the fourth
spot with Brad Holland moving
from fourth to fifth and Buddy
Gallagher from fifth to sixth.
DeJesus will team with Galla-
gher in the second doubles posi-
tion. Holland and Holman will
drop to the third doubles slot.
