EVANSTON - Tonight's Michigan-
Northwestern basketball game marks
the first time this season that the
Wolverines will face a squad that they
have beaten earlier ,in the year.
Michigan defeated the Wildcats, 66-63,
three games ago, and don't think that
Northwestern has forgotten the loss.
"We'll be ready for them," promised
Wildcat forward Jim Stack.
"EVEN THOUGH we lost that
game," said Northwestern head coach
Rich Falk, "we felt we could have won,
and that's one of the best motivators
you can have.
"We feel if we just play our game and
play well in the three most important
phases of the game - offense, defense
and rebounding - that this (Michigan)
is a team we can and should beat," he
Falk added that Michigan should en-
ter the Northwestern contest with just
as much confidence as his squad.
"Michigan is going to come in here
fired-up and, having beaten us there, I
know they feel they can come in here and
IF. THE WILDCATS are to win, they
feel that they must turn in a better
rebounding performance than in the
first game against Michigan when the
Wolverines grabbed six more boards
than did Northwestern.

"They played really well in the game
against us," said Stack. "We didn't an-
ticipate them being so hard-nosed. We
have to do a better job on the boards.
We better be more aggressive, or the
same thing will happen. We thought
they had a small front line with only

like a freshman at all. He's playing like
a veteran in a lot of ways."
"I knew I had the talent to play as a
freshman," said Goode. "I just had to

an outstanding athlete and that is what
it takes to block shots the way he does."
Joining Goode on the Northwestern
front-line are 6-9 center Bob Grady and
6-8 forward Jim Stack, with the latter
being one of the best all-around players
in the conference. "Some players excel
in one or two areas, but I feel good
about the fact that I can do well in all of
them," said Stack. "If I had to pick out
my best attributes though, it would be
that I feel that I'm a good shooter and
passer. Those are my two strongest
points. I also think I handle the ball
well for my size, especially against the
STARTING IN the backcourt for the 4
Wildcats are juniors Gaddis Rathel and
Michael Jenkins. Rathel is averaging
10.9 points per game, placing him
second on the Northwestern scoring list
this year behind Stack's 14.4 average.
Jenkins, meanwhile, is a fine passer.
Yet it is not this tandem's ability to
score or dish out assists that concerns
Falk. Instead, he worries about
whether they can contain Michigan's
Eric Turner.
"Eric Turner is one of the top fresh-
man in the Big Ten, and if he has a good
game, we'll have a tough time," said "'

Special to the Daily
EVANSTON-Very little comes easy to a basket-
ball team that's losses greatly outnumber its wins-
including recognition for its top players. Just ask
Northwestern forward Jim Stack.
At St. Laurence High School in Illinois, Stack
teamed up with current Iowa swingman Kevin Boyle.
The Hawkeyes went to the NCAA tournament last
season, and Boyle earned first-team All-Big Ten
honors. Stack, meanwhile, had to settle for All-Big
Ten honorable mention acclaim, as the Wildcats
finished the year at 9-18.
"I ALWAYS look at how well Kevin is doing, and I
know that winning hasn't hurt him in achieving first
team All-Big Ten," said Stack, who will lead 7-13 Nor-
thwestern against Michigan tonight. "Not winning
much probably hurts me. I know that I can play with
players like Kevin. He can do a lot of things well, but I

think I can also.
"You always think that it's nice to win and be on a
winner," he continued. "When that happens, people
recognize your talent more. Maybe I'd have gotten
more recognition if I were on a winner."
It's not as though Stack didn't have the opportunity
to be a member of a team that is a "winner." During
his senior year in high school, he made official
recruiting visits to Indiana and Purdue, in addition to
Northwestern. Furthermore, he was contacted by
most of the other schools in the Big Ten. But instead
of opting for a contender, he chose to play in a
program that had not had a winning campaign since
the 1968-69 season.
"I WANTED to be part of a program which I
thought could be turned around," said Stack. "(Head
coach) Rich Falk really impressed me with his en-
thusiasm for getting the program turned around."
And should the Wildcats' fortunes turn for the bet-

ter, Stack believes the accolades will come his way.
"The recognition of helping to turn around a
program is great, and I still think we can turn .the
program around," said the 6-8 cager. "That's what I
hoped to achieve when I came to Northwestern, and
our chances of doing that in the future are real high."
ALTHOUGH Stack has not received the recognition
of his high school teanmate Boyle, opposing coaches
still take note of his abilities with high regard.
"I think he's outstanding," said Michigan head
coach Bill Frieder. "He's one of the great shooters in
the league. He'll be an All-Conference first or second
team player this year."
Should Frieder's All-Conference prophecy prove to
be true, Stack will finally know what it's like to be on
a college team with enough talent to win on a regular
basis. And who knows, he might even be reunited
with Boyle on such a squad.

The Michigan women gymnasts had
two goals going in to yesterday's Big
Ten Championships at Crisler Arena -
to win the meet, and to reach a 140 team
score - and now the team is searching
for -new obstacles after capturing the
conference title with an all-time team
high140.95 score.
The Wolverines peaked at the right
time, because, while they were scoring
to new heights, top-seeded Michigan
State. and second-ranked Ohio State
also eclipsed previous highs by scoring
140.13 and 140.05, respectively.
MICHIGAN co-captain Cindy
Shearon was overwhelmed with the
victory. "I think it's the greatest," the
senior specialist said. "The whole team,
was together. What a way to
"They said they wanted to be Big Ten
champs," Wolverine coach Sheri Hyatt
said, "and they went out and did it.
Everybody pulled through and it was
exactly what we needed."
Leading the way for the Wolverines
were Kathy Beckwith, Dayna
Samuelson, and Nancy Papows. Beck-
wwith scored a team-high 35.2 and
placed fourth in the all-around, but for
her, it was an off meet.
"I JUST HAD a rough day," Beck-
with admitted, "It was at a bad time. I
had three exams this week and there
was a lot of pressure."
Despite the pressure, Beckwith still
managed to win the vault with a 9.05

and take second on the balance beam
with a 9.15, which qualified her for
today's individual competition on those
events. The top eight on each event will
compete today.
But Samuelson, Papows, and the rest
of the team more than made up for
Beckwith's "off" day.
SAMUELSON scored a 35.05, her best
ever, including a 9.0 on vault and an 8.9
on floor exercise. Her vault score
placed her in second place in the meet
and qualified her for today's com-
Papows had a very consistent meet
tallying 34.85 in the all-around as .85
seemed to be her lucky number last
night. She scored 8.85s on vault, uneven
bars and floor exercise.
Freshman Christy Schwartz made it
four out of four Michigan all-arounders
to break the 34.00 barrier with a 34.45
mark. She was especially good on the
uneven bars as she qualified for in-
dividuals with a third place tying score
of 8.95. Specialist Angela Deaver
qualified on the balance beam with an
Going into the last event the uneven
bars, the Wolverines had a lead of 105.6-
104.75 over second-place Minnesota and
