academics on its teams. Thus, it is not
surprising that one of the goals of the
Wildcats is academically oriented.
"One goal that we have, is that we
expect our seniors to graduate on
time," said Northwestern head coach
Rich Falk.

The Big Ten season lies just ahead, and what a season it
should be. There are absolutely no runaway favorites this
year, and as many as six teams have a realistic shot at the
title. The championship could still be up for grabs for two,
three, or even four teams on the last day of the season, with
the eventual champions winning less than 12 games!
That's how even matched the top teams are, and that's why
it's so hard to predict the Big ten finish this year. Never-
theless, the Daily basketball beat of Mark Fischer, Larry

Freed, John Kerr, Ron Pollack, and Bob Wojnowski have
given it a shot, and the rankings below are what we came up
with.
The Top Four are the same in each case, with Indiana and
Iowa garnering two firsts apiece, and Minnesota one. In-
terestingly,Minnesotaeeked out the Number one spot in the
consensus rankings despite the fact it received only one top
ranking out of five.
For a team-by-team rundown, see pages 16 and 17.

anyone in the league, but our lack of
experience could spell the difference."
The MSU mentor may be right, for
the Spartans have speed, good suze,
depth, and a good coach in Heathcoate
himself.
-MARK FISCHER
7. Ohio State
Last year much was expected of the
Ohio State Buckeyes and little was
delivered as they finished the season at
14-13. This year, high expectations
should be no problem.
The Buckeyes return all-everything
6-7 junior forward Clark Kellogg and
little else. Kellogg was fifth in the Big
Ten in scoring with an 18 ppg average
last season, and he led the league in
rebounding with 11.8 rebounds per
game.
BUT GONE are Jim Smith, Carter
Scott and Herb Williams and in their
place are unrpoven underclassmen.
Larry Huggins, a 6-3 junior who star-
ted 19 games a year ago, returns at one
guard position but his backcourt mate
is still in limbo. Three freshmen are
battling for the spot: 5-11 Troy Taylor,
5-11 Ron Stokes and 6-2 Dave Jones..
The forward spot opposite Kellogg
appears to belong to 6-6 sophomore
Tony Campbell (1.6 ppg), although Ohio
State head coach Eldon Miller has in-
dicated that Campbell may start at
guard to give the Buckeyes some much-
needed size at that position. Should
Campbell move to the backcourt, look
for 6-7 freshman Jon Concheck to move
into the starting lineup.
GRANVILLE WAITERS (2.2 ppg), a
6-11 junior, will probably start at center
for the Buckeyes and will be backed up
by either Cliff Kirchner, a 6-9 senior, or
Derick Polk, a 6-11 junior college tran-
sfer.
Although Ohio State may possibly
have the premier player in the Big Ten
in the person of Kellogit appears that
his supporting cast is too inexperienced
for the Buckeyes to contend for the
league crown this season.

Stack
.. top 'Cat rebounder
IN RECENT YEARS, this has been
the most attainable goal that the Wild-
cats basketball team could hope to ac-
complish. This year, this might change
since Northwestern has a good deal of
talent returning from last season's
squad.
The Wildcats sustained a number of
injuries last year, and had to juggle its
lineup. Therefore, seven players return
this season who started in at least six
games last.year. In fact, only one star-
ter from last year, guard Rod Rober-
son, was lost to graduation.
Leading the way for Northwestern
will be seniors Jim Stack and Bob
Grady. Stack, a 6-8 forward, averaged
13.7 points per game, while Grady, a
center, contributed 8.5 points per con-
test. -RON POLLACK
10.s Wisconsin
"We're doing something that is the
kiss of death in the Big Ten," Wisconsin
basketball coach Bill Cofield said.
"We're starting three freshmen."
Indeed, guard Brad Sellers and for-
wards Cory Blackwell and Carl Golston
are three freshmen who will probably
receive a rude awakening at the begin-
ning of the Big Ten season. "I don't
think they have any idea what it takes
to win on the road in the Big Ten,"
Cofield admitted.
NEVERTHELESS, THE COACH in-
sists that there is no way he can keep
the youngsters out of the lineup based
on their performances so far in prac-
tice.
The Badgers will have some ex-
perience in the two other starting
positions, however. At the guard spot
opposite Golston will be 6-3 senior John
Bailey. Bailey started all 27 games for
Wisconsin last year and was its leading
scorer, averaging 12.3 points a game.
Six foot nine senior Keith Mitchell will
handle the post position for the
Badgers. He saw action in 22 games last
season and averaged 2.4 points and 2.2
rebounds a contest. Mitchell; however,
will probably have a tough time com-
peting for rebounds against the taller
Big Ten centers.
But despite the inexperience, Cofield
feels that this year's edition of Wiscon-
sin basketball can do many things bet-
ter than his previous Badger teams.
