Buckeyes edge Iowa,
IOWA CITY (AP)-Herb Williams hit
a turnaround jump shop to give Ohio
State the lead for good with less than six,
minutes left in the game and the
Buckeyes went on to upset 11th-rated
Iowa 58-56 in a Big Ten Conference
basketball opener last night.
Williams' basket was the second of
three straight goals that allowed the
Buckeyes to take charge of the game
*fter trailing by as many as 15 points in
the first half. Ohio State, second in the.
Big Ten a year ago, upped its record to
6-3 and Iowa, losing for the first time at
home this season, fell to 8-2.
SOPHOMORE CLARK KELLOGG
led Ohio State with 16 points, 10 in the
second half, and the 6-foot-11 Williams
added 14. It was the 81st straight game
in double figures for Williams.
Ohio State trailed 38-28 at halftime
and was behind 41-28 with 19 minutes
left in the game after Iowa's Steve
Krafcisin tipped in a missed basket.
However, the Buckeyes worked the
ball patiently on offense and outscored
Iowa 20-7, tying the score at 48 on two
free throws by Larry Huggins with 8:13
Illinois 88, NU 64
EVANSTON (AP)-Craig Tucker
scored 16 points to lead balanced
Illinois to an 88-64 Big Ten opening vic-
tory over Northwestern in college
basketball action last night.
FOUR OTHER PLAYERS scored in
double figures for the 12th-ranked Illini,
who boosted their season record to 9-1
while Northwestern suffered its fourth
loss against six victories..
The Illiniopened a 6-9 lead on baskets
by James Griffin, Eddie Johnson and
Mark Smith and never looked back.
Indiana 55, MSU 43
Coach Bobby Knight had been disap-
pointed in his team's defense this
season-until the Hoosiers beat
Indiana beat the Spartans, 55-43, last
night in the Big Ten opener for both
schools, and Knight was particularly
pleased that the Hoosier defense was
able to hold MSU scoring leader Jay
Vincent to 11 points.
Isiah Thomas scored 20 points and
Randy Wittman added 16 to lead In-
diana to the win, which gave the
Hoosiers an 8-5 overall record and
dropped MSU to 6-4 for the season.
"Vincent got in foul trouble, and that
may be as big a factor in holding him
down as anything we did," Knight said.
"But we did work hard defensively."
KNIGHT ALSO WAS worried about
Indiana's rebounding, but the Hoosiers
beat Michigan State 27-25 in that
category-led by 6-foot-3 guard Jim
Thomas, with seven rebounds.
Men tracksters to run
short in Tennessee opener
By RON POLLACK
Runners take your mark. At the sound of the gun today at the East Tennessee In-
vitational, the Michigan men's indoor track season will begin-at least for some of
the Blue tracksters.
For although this invitational is "one of the biggest meets in the country," ac-
cording to Wolverine Head Coach Jack Harvey, Michigan will only take a partial
team, consisting of ten members.
Of these ten tracksters, none are distance runners. "The distance people, we
don't start them this early, they're coming off of cross country," Harvey ex-
In spite of their small numbers, the Wolverines will nonetheless threaten to place
in certain events. According to Harvey, Michigan's best opportunity to do so will
beIN the mile relay-a race in which Michigan finished fourth during the same meet
laeyear. Running in this event will be Shelby Johnson, Mike Shea, Ken Gardner
Ahother performer who should do well, is long jumper James Ross. Ross has a
jutep of 26-i1/z to his credit.
gpnning the high hurdles for Michigan, will be Marshall Parks whose 14.33 time
in 'the Big Ten Track and Field Championships earned him a second place finish
foIwing a 14.1 time in the semi-finals. Parks is a member of Michigan's football
teatm, and may not yet be in shape for track.
Highly regarded teams in this meet, which consists mostly of schools from the
hSontheast, Mid-America and Atlantic Coast conferences, are Alabama, Tennessee
Tennessee's performance may suffer for the same reason as Michigan's Parks.
The, four Tennessee runners coming off of the football season are all excellent
Although no team scores are kept in this meet, quality performances are not out
of tie question, as was evident in last years meet, when Larry Myricks set a world
indoor record, in the long jump, of 27-53/4.
