Three Michigan players were named to the All-Big Ten base-
ball team. Pitchers Lary Sorensen and Mark Weber, along with
second-baseman Dick Walterhouse, were named to the 13-man
squad. .
Sorensen was 4-2 in the Big Ten and 9-3 overall. The nine
wins tied a Michigan record. The junior from Mt. Clemens posted
a 2.52 earned run average.
Weber tied with Minnesota's Dan Morgan for the second
pitching spot. Weber's earned run average of 1.80 ranked
fourth in the conference. A senior from Flint, Weber was 5-4
overall and 3-2 in loop competition.
Walterhouse led the Big Ten champion Wolverines in hits,
banging out 50 and his .342 batting average was second on the
team to Rick Leach's .345. Michigan placed two men on the
third team, catcher Ted Mahan and outfielder Dan Damiani.
Indiana also garnered three positions on the first team. Scott
Weiner, the Big Ten's leading hitter (.453) was a unanimous
choice at designated hitter. The Hoosiers supplied two of the all-
stars four outfielders.
Terry Jones, quarterback for Lee Corso's football team,
gained one spot, on account of his league-leading home run
total (5) and .382 batting average, along with the Hoosier's, V
Mark Laesch.
Michigan's State's Al Weston was a unanimous choice for an
outfield spot, as was Minnesota's shortstop Paul Molitor.
Steve Stumpff led the balloting at first base, and Ohio State's
Jerry Mahon nailed down the hot corner. Northwestern's Kent Michigan's Lary Sorensen disp

court to another, stopping every
so often to make notes.
For six days, the selection
committee that will choose the
United States Olympic basket-
ball team has been evaluating
the candidates. Now the time
has come to pick the squad. It
is not a simple task.
The six teams of players as-
sembled here played a final tri-
pleheader last night with berths
on the teams stilt bhanging in
the balance.
"SURE, THE last day is im-
portant," said Marshall Emery
of Delaware State, one of the
squadron of coaches who have
been running the 49 remaining
candidates through tough daily
drills. "I'd say we're down to
about 20 or 25 who have the
best chances. What they do the
last day will decide."

"If a boy's name shows up on

May, the college player of the
year, has a shot at that kind of
unanimity. The 6-foot-7 forward
has played well all week, and
seems a cinch for the team.
