Blue place three on
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
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
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 dis

Hubbard, Green await decision

RALEIGH, N.C. (/P)-The men
with clipboards u n d e r their
arms walked from one practice
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 still hanging 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."

Dean Smith of North Caro-
lina, head coach of the United
States team, said last night's
final game would not count any
more heavily than the scrim-
mage games the teams have
played all week. "But whatever
you see last sticks in your mind
and there is a tendency to vote
that way," he said.
Smith admitted that he has
some preferences as to person-
nel. "My mind isn't made up
yea," he said. "I might have a
group of six players at one po-
sition from which I'd like to see
four on the team or five at
another spot from which I'd
like three."
THE DOMINANT team in the
scrimmages has been a unit
composed of Scott May and
Quinn Buchner from Indiana,
Ralph Drolinger of UCLA, Ken-
ny Carr of North Carolina State,
Phil H u b b a r d of Michigan,
Bruce Parkinson of Purdue,

Jack Sikma of Illinois Wesleyan
and Derrick Jackson of George-
"The teams were planned by
p o s i t i o n," explained Smith.
"One squad I thought was real-
ly strong didn't win but one
T h e May-Buckner-Carr-Hub-
bard unit won five.
Besides Hubbard, who is try-
ing out at forward, Michigan's
Rickey Green is also pursuing
a spot. The 6-0 senior-to-be
hopes to gain one of three guard
spots, Smith has planned.
To pick the team, Dr. Will
Renken of Albright, chairman of
the selection committee, has

asked his people to submit their
final lists of 15 players each.
"If a boy's name shows up on
every list," said Smith, "he'll
be on the team."
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.
"I hope so," he says. "I came
here because my two best
friends -are here and we wanted
to play together one last time."
The friends are Buckner and
Bobby Wilkerson, May's team-
mate's on Indiana's national
championship team. All three
have been impresive here, but

the selection committee seems
unlikely to pick three players
from one school, even if the
Hoosiers did finish undefeated.
