A Daily Sports Analysis
It's been a wild race through the first
five weeks of the Big Ten basketball
season, and with four weeks still to
play, the frantic pace isn't letting up a
bit.
The overall balance of the league,
along with the advantage that has
allowed the home team to win 60 per-
cent of the conference games so far, has
resulted in a log-jam at the top of the
conference standings.
A QUICK GLANCE reveals a three-
way tie at the top with Michigan, Iowa,
and Indiana at 7-3, three teams a game
back (Ohio State, Purdue, and Illinois),
and Minnesota right on their tail at 5-5.
These seven teams will spend the
next four weeks knocking heads with
each other and the league's three "weak
sisters:" Michigan State, Wisconsin,
and Northwestern. Nothing's automatic
against these teams either.
THE SPARTANS and Badgers have
combined for only five conference wins,
but their victims include Purdue,
Illinois and Ohio State.
Considering the fact that Michigan
State plays five of its last eight games
in the friendly confines of Jenison Field
House, the Spartans figure to play a key

role in the race. The East Lansing
squad is especially rough on a certain
team about 75 miles o the southeast,
and it entertains that ballclub Saturday
night.
Along the way, the Spartans play host
to Purdue and Wisconsin, as well as the
arch-rivals from Ann Arbor, before
closing out the season with the two
other current tri-leaders - Iowa and
Indiana.
EACH OF these top three teams,
meanwhile, plays half of its remaining
schedule on the road. If any one of these
teams can come up with a couple of
road wins, it would find itself with a
pretty good shot at the title.
With this in mind, Indiana has an
edge in the race. The Hoosiers play only
two of the top seven teams (Iowa and
Purdue), along with Wisconsin and
Michigan State, on the road. In addition
to the Spartans, Michigan and Iowa
each must play three contenders on the
road.
However, Indiana's advantage over
Iowa is negated by the February 19
game between the two in Iowa City.
Michigan also has to make the trip to
Iowa on February 26. On the way home,
the Wolverines pay a visit to Indian's
campus where they'll play a game on
February 28.

IN ORDER TO entertain any title
hopes, Michigan will have to win at
least one of these two games. While a
Wolverine sweep seems highly
unlikely, anthing less than a split of that
weekend sojourn would be disasterous
to the Michigan title dreams.
Of the three teams a game behind,
Ohio State appears to have the easiest
schedule the rest of the way. Although
they play Michigan and Indiana on the
road, the Buckeyes also visit Wisconsin
and Northwestern. A split in these four
games, combined with a sweep of the
four home games against contenders
would leave the Bucks with a 12-6
record and in pretty good shape. Seven
out of eight Buckeye wins would
guarantee at least a share of the con-1
ference crown.
Illinois has the advantage of playing
only two of the three leaders, Michigan
and Indiana; Illinois does not have to
face Iowa again this season. In that
respect, the Illini control their own+
destiny, but they have to play Wiscon-
Big Ten

sin, Ohio State, Minnesota and Purdue
away from Assembly Hall. Illinois, like
just about everyone else, will have t
find a way to win at least a pair of thou
road games.
Since it got beaten at home by Wiscon-
sin, Purdue has been facing an uphill
battle. To make matters worse, the
Boilermakers have to play five of their
last eight games on the road. It looks
like Purdue will go into the last
weekend needing a sweep at Ohio State
and Michigan to have a shot at the
Number One spot.
Minnesota also had some trouble W
home, losing to Michigan, Ohio State,
and Indiana. The Gophers could get
right back into the thick of things,
however, when they host Iowa and Pur-
due this weekend. All the Gophers have
to do is to sweep those games and split a
pair at Ohio State and Indiana the
following weekend to bring themselveA
within striking distance. Anything short
of three wins in these next four games
and the Gophers will have little choice
but to join the Spartans, Badgers, an
Wildcats in the role of spoiler.

Both the men's and women's gym-
nastics teams suffered defeat Sunday
at Crisler Arena, as Ohio State beat the
Wolverine men 267.2-263.35, and the
women 173.5-134.5.
Michigan's men captured four solor
first places and one tie for first out of
the six events, but the Buckeyes' depth
proved too strong for the Wolverines.
Kevin McKee in the floor exercise and
vaulting (tied with Ohio State's Steve
Carraher), John Rieckhoff in the pom-
mel horse, Darrell Yee in the rings, and
Marshall Garfield in the parallel
bars all captured top honors for
Michigan.
Although Garfield took first in the
parallel bars, the Buckeyes dominated
the event, taking the following three
places. "We gave them a battle," said

Michigan coach Newt Loken. "But the
parallel bars are always a menace."
In the vault, Michigan achieved a
team season-high total of 46.4 points,.
tieing for first and taking second and
third. In addition to McKee's first in the
event, Milan Stanovich and G'arfield
took second and third, respectively.
In the women's competition,
Michigan captured only one first place
out of the four events, with freshman
'Kathy Beckwith's fine performance in
the floor exercise."
The Wolverine women dominated
three of four positions in the all around
statistics, with Beckwith tallying only a
.25 deficit to the Buckeyes' Donna
Silber, ranked tenth in the nation.
Angela Deaver was third and team cap-
tain Teresa Bertoncin fourth for the
Wolverines.

honored
Michigar's Mike McGee, who is only
10 points away from passing Cazzi*
Russell as Michigan's all time leading
scorer, was named the UPI's Big Ten
Player of the Week.
McGee earned the award for his per-
formances in wins over Wisconsin and
Michigan State, scoring 49 points while
shooting 20 of 34 from the field and nine
of 16 from the free throw line.
'1' vs MSU, Part 2
By MARK MIHANOVIC
Michigan Wolverine linebacker Pau
Girgash and reserve defensive linema
Bob Dana were involved in a skirmish
with several Michigan State students
Friday night at a South Quad party, ac-
cording to Walter Stevens, the Univer
sity's Director of the Department of
Safety. Both incurred minor contusions
to the face from the tussle, which oc-
curred in Hunt House on the fourth
floor, Noarrests were made.
"Some young lady in the dorm wa
having a get-together, and therewer
some MSU students there, according to
the report P have," Stevens said. "I
don't know if they were football players
or not. Girgash and Dana and maybe a
couple of others went to the party.
",There was something about whether
they were going to pay part of the cost
for the refreshments. I guess they were
drinking beer. There was some pushing
and shoving there, and Girgash and
Dana left with bloody noses or
something like that. From that point
some other Michigan people came over
and were ready to mix it up, but cooler
heads prevailed."
South Quad security called the Ann
Arbor Police Department to prevent
the situation from exploding, but as it
turned out, reinforcements were not
needed.
"By'the time we got there, the com-
motion was over, and nobody wished to
make a complaint," Sergeant Richar
Cygan said. "Nobody wished to come
forward and even admit that they had
been involved."
Cindy Cook was the resident advisor
on duty Friday night when the incident
occurred. "I have no comment on this,"
Cook said, "but I plan to talk to the
Building Director about it."
