Cagers advance in NIT

Host Toledo Sunday

(Continued from Page 1)
Mention All-American guard Ronnie
Dixon was held to 11 points, six below
his average.
AS FRIEDER expected, the game
was very physical, with a total of 46
fouls called - most of which resulted
from the shoving matches under the
basket. Michigan center Tim McCor-
mick, who had a spirited game defen-
sively, noted that the 6-7, 230-pound

Atkins was especially rough. "He was
very physical. He was trying to move
people around with his elbows," said
McCormick.
Junior forward Thad Garner had an
exceptional all-around game for the
Wolverines, scoring 15 points, hauling
in a team-high six rebounds, and
playing his usual hustling defense.
Johnny Johnson also had 15 for
Michigan.

FOR THE FIRST time in quite a
while, all of the players on the Michigan
bench saw action. 7-2 reserve center
Jon Antonides put the finishing touches
on the game by tipping in a shot at the
buzzer to the delight of the 7,200.fans
who attended the game.
Should the NIT committee decide to
move the winner of the Michigan-
Toledo game to an away site, Sunday's
contest could be the Crisler finale for
Michigan's five seniors.
"Many of our players are veterans,
and they want to win as many more
games as they can in Crisler Arena,"
said Frieder.

Gymnasts roll into Big

By LARRY MISHKIN
Despite his 34 years of coaching,
Michigan men's gymnastic coach Newt
Loken is "as nervous as ever" as his
team heads into the Big Ten Champion-
ships tonight in Columbus, Ohio.
And well he should be. His Wolverine
gymnasts, who have been an average
team at best, will now have to over-
come Big Ten foes Ohio State, Min-
nesota, Illinois and Iowa, all of whom
defeated Michigan earlier in the
season.
"THE TEAM IS rarin' to go," said
Loken. "The guys have all been
working hard for this and now we'll see
what happens."
Loken, who does not relish the role of
predicting outcomes, instead prefers to
stick by the standard that "actions
speak louder than words."
He did, however, hint as to what his
team was up against, saying, "The men
will have a real fight, clawing through
the leaders in order to at least duplicate
our third place performance of last
year."
THE BATTLE FOR the top spot in
the tournament will most likely be con-
fined to Ohio State, last year's runner-
up and this year's favorite, and Min-
nesota, the defending champion.
Tilinois and Iowa will put up the
congest challenge to the two front-
runners.
Although the Wolverines are not ex-
pected to challenge for top, team
honors, they are sure to have some fine
individual showings. They will be led by
team captain and two time Big Ten
rings champion Darrell Yee and Kevin
McKee, a Big Ten finalist in the floor
exercise a year ago and currently

ranked first among all floor exercise
competitors in the Mideast region.
Yee, who will be shooting for his third
consecutive rings crown, says that he is
nervous, but optimistic. "There is a lot
of pressure and good competition, but
I'm feeling good and in the best shape
I've been in all season," he said. "I also
have three years of competition behind
me. It will be a matter of me going out
and hitting my routine."
OTHER WOLVERINES who should
perform well are John Rieckhoff on the
pommel horse, Rick Kaufmann on the
rings, Milan Stanovich in vaulting, and

Marshall Garfield in the all-around
competition.
A definite bright spot for the team is
the return of Mike McKee to the lineup
for the first time since he broke his
hand in the Iowa meet back on Decem-
ber 7.
McKee, who will perform in the floor
exercise and vaulting events, said of his
return, "I feel I'm just as strong now as
when I injured myself. I have no goals
but just want to do the best that I can."
While a Big Ten title is the main con-
cern for the gymnasts they know that a

Uen meet
strong showing in Columbus will im-
prove their chances of qualifying for
the upcoming NCAA tournament to be
held April 2-4 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
For the present, though, Loken is
looking only to tonight and tomorrow as
he attempts to win his 13th Big Ten title.
He has nothing but praise for the gym-
nasts who will try to win it for him.
"They're a great bunch of guys and
.have shown tremendous improvement
since the beginning of the season," he
said. "They're a dedicated bunch of
gymnasts that deserve a little bit of
luck this time around."

CHAMPIONSHIPS AT JOE LOUIS ARENA:

'M' runners track NCAA title

6

By JOHN FITZPATRICK
Featuring a number of world record
holders and the best collegiate track
performers in the U.S., the 17th annual
NCAA indoor track championship meet
,being held today and tomorrow at Joe
Louis Arena, promises to be one of the
best ever.
Although the poorly constructed
board track at Joe Louis has proven to
be a hindrance to fast times in the past,
a number of exciting races are guaran-
teed, due to the presence of such world-
class runners as Suleiman Nyambui of
Texas-El Paso, Mel Lattany of Georgia,
Tony Tufariello of Villanova and Deon
Hogan of Kansas.
NYAMBUI, WHO HAS won the mile
and two mile in this meet for two years

in a row, is enjoying one of his best
seasons ever. After capturing the silver
medal in the 5,000 meters at the Olym-
pics this past summer, the Tanzanian
won the NCAA cross-country race last
November, and has run a 3:59 mile and
a world record of 13:20.3 in the 5,000 so
far in his indoor campaign.
Tufariello, who won the 600 yd. here
two years ago, has a fast 1:09.6 perfor-
mance to his credit this season, and has
the ability to run much faster. Hogan is
a standout in the other "long sprint,"
the 440, having set a world record of
47.20 in that event several weeks ago.
In the 60 yd. dash and hurdles, a
number of outstanding athletes are ex-
pected. Lattany, who has run 6.10 in the
60, is the pre-meet favorite on the basis
of his vast international experience. A
threat to him might come from indoor
long jump record holder Carl Lewis of
Houston, who has runa fast 6.17 this
year. The hurdles have defending
champ Rodney Wilson of Villanova
returning.
LEWIS, WHOSE LEAP of 27'10"
broke the old world record of Larry
Myricks by over 4" several weeks ago,
should dominate a field which includes
Michigan's James Ross, who broke 26'
last year. In the other of the horizontal
jumps, the triple jump, Washington
State's Ian Campbell and Keith Connor
of Southern Methodist, who established
a collegiate record of 56'/%" last month,
are the class of the field.
The vertical jumps are also shaping
up as talent-packed contests. The high
jump will be up for grabs among a
variety of jumpers, including 7'4" per-

Bruce
... heads mile relay team
formers Leo Williams of Navy, Ken
Glover of Eastern Kentucky, frosh Milt
Ottey of UTEP, and Jim Howard of
Texas A&M. Pole vaulters such as
Dave Volz of Indiana, whose 18'2" of
several weeks ago leads the collegiate
ranks, Ed Langford of Purdue, and
Bruce Kimball of Indiana will lend -a
distinctly Big Ten air to the vaulting at
Joe Louis.
Michael Carter, who won the shot put
as a freshman on the SMU team last
year, is back to defend his title, and will
be in a tough battle to repeat. Carter
has not been throwing well this year
and he'll be facing a number of up and
coming putters, such as Mike Lehmann
of Illinois, who has thrown over 66' this
year, and Kevin Akins of Ohio State,
with a 65'2" to his credit. ,
In addition to Ross, Michigan will be
sending Dan Heikkinen to run either the
mile or two mile, Mike Shea in the 880, a
mile relay team consisting of Ken Gar-
dner, Andrew Bruce, Shea, and Shelby
Johnson, and a distance medley relay
team.
