Special To The Daily ,
BLOOMINGTON - Michigan's
pair of defending champs, "Snip"
Nalon and Dick O'Shaughnessy,
held fast to their titles here last
night to lead the Wolverines to
their fifth Big Ten wrestling
championship under Coach Cliff
Keen.
k Runner-up Michigan State also
saw two of its matmen pick up
individual crowns, but the Spar-
tans lost out in the, total scoring
by a slim 27-22 margin.
MICHIGAN'S victory was a bril-
liant team effort all the way. Of
the seven men Keen entered in
the championships, six came
through to pick up points as one
of the top four finishers in their
respective weight classes.
Captain Nalon, who was nam-
ed along with Illinois' Pete
Compton as the outstanding
t wrestler of the meet, grabbed the
first Michigan championship
when he overpowered Phil Dug-
gan of Iowa, 8-3, in the 130-
Pound class.
O'Shaughnessy dumped another
defending champion, Iowa's
George Myers, 7-3, in the 177-
pound final to keep a firm grip
on his title. Myers won the special
191-pound Olympic weight last
year.
BOTH NALON and O'Shaugh-
nessy will be back to try for a
third title next year, since they
are only juniors.
Two other Wolverines, Andy
Kaul and Joe Scandura, fought
their way into the finals only to
be disappointed by identical 8-3
scores.
Compton, who had been hand-
ed the only dual meet defeat of
his career by Kaul earlier this
season, turned the tables on the
Wolverine sophomore last night to
retain his 137-pound crown.
* * *
HOOSIER Chuck Parkow oust-
ed Scandura at 157 pounds to take
Indiana's only first place.
But under the conference
scoring system of six points for
first, four for second, two for
third, one for fourth, and one
for every fall, both Kaul and
Scandura added invaluable
points to the Wolverine cause,
as did teammates Miles Lee and
Bronson Rumsey.
Lee downed Purdue's Tom Han-
kins, 6-2, in the consolation finals
to capture third place at 157
pounds, while Rumsey took fourth
place in the 167-pound division
when he was blanked by Don Hea-
ton of Iowa in his match for the
third notch.
BY THE TIME the afternoon
events were completed Michigan
practically had the team title all
sewed up. The Wolverines, by
placing four men in the finals and
two in the consolation finals, and
with four points already picked up
on falls, were assured of at least
22 points - enough, as things
turned out, to tie for the team tro-
phy even if they didn't win an-
other match.
Nalon, Scandura, and 0'.
Shaughnessy all won their semi-
final matches by big margins,
while Kaul had a little more
trouble before downing North-
western's Len Vyskocil, 3-,
Lee was the only Michigan
casualty in the semi-finals,
dropping a tough 3-1 decision to

Wolverines came back later,
though, to whip Pete Cappas of
Northwestern, 3-1,. and qualify
for the third and fourth place
finals.
Rumsey, who had been elimi-
nated from title contention Friday
night, was given the chance to
qualify for the consolation final
and responded by pinning Purdue's
Tony D'Amico in only 2:48.

were Hoke at 157 pounds and Vito

EAST LANSING-The Univer-
sity of Illinois successfully defend-
ed its Big Ten gymnastic title here
yesterday, rolling up a total of
133 points, 61 higher thal second
place Minnesota.
Michigan's gymnasts managed
to compile a total of 37 points,
good for sixth place, largely
through the efforts of Wolverine
workhorse, Mary Johnson. He
picked up a second, fourth, sev-
enth, and ninth place.
* * *
SPARTAN Carl Rintz was by
far the day's outstanding parti-
cipant. He amassed a total of three
firsts, a third, and a fifth. His
firsts came in the side horse, high
bar, and flying rings events.
Meanwhile Illini Bob Sullivan
earned first, second and a third
spots.
Despite Rintz's effort Michi-
gan State finished behind the
Gophers. Iowa placed fourth,
followed by Ohio State, Michi-
gan, Indiana, and Wisconsin.
Illinois controlled six of the
eight events. Paced byS'Eullivan,
Frank Bare, and Gill Brinkmeyer,
along with little Jeff Austin the
Illini took firsts in one event, sec-
onds in three and three thirds.
BY FAR Michigan's best event
was the free exercise event where
Johnson placed second behind Sul-
livan of Illinois. Johnson was the
only Wolverine qualified for this
event. He was followed by Sul-
livan's teammate Brinkmeyer.
Bill Sorenson of Iowa captur-
ed the trampoline competition,
putting on a brilliant perform-
ance. He was followed by Ohio's
Don Perry. Vern Evans of Min-
nesota placed third. Michigan's
captain Don Hurst eked out an
eighth.

In the side horse event

tory of the day. He wasi

EAST LANSING -- Possession-
minded Michigan State success-
fully engineered a masterful ver-
sion of the deep freeze in the final
five minutes last night to eke out
an exciting 55-52 victory over
Michigan before a near-capacity
throng of 7,923 screaming fans at
Jenison Field House.
The smooth-working Spartans
overcame a Wolverine advantage
that at one time reached 11 points,
taking control for the first time
early in the fourth period and
thereafter stalling their way to a
hard-earned verdict over the Wol-
verines.
* * *
COACH Pete' Newell's quintet
entered the final ten minutes
training by a single point, 46-45,
after the Maize and Blue had led
at one time in the contest by a
32-21 margin.
Almost immediately the Mich-
igan State five went into a me-
thodical weave at mid-court,
which ended when Michigan's
Paul Groffsky fouled Al Ferrari
at the 9:08 mark.
Ferrari, flashy forward who es-
tablished a new Spartan hdne
scoring record with a 25-point
harvest, converted the free throw
to tie it up at 46-all, and less than
a minute later forward Keith
Stackhouse canned another char-I
ity toss to give the winners a 47-46
lead which they never relin-I
quished.'I{
LANKY MSC center Bob Arm-
strong put the home forces ahead,
49-46, with 7:12 remaining, toss-
ing in a one-handed push shot
from about ten feet out.
Groffsky then sandwiched a
pretty hook shot, first of only
three Michigan field goals in
the last period, in between an-
other Armstrong one-hander
and that made the tally read
51-48 with 6:22 left on the elec-
tric scoreboard.
Followinga flurry of action un-
der each basket, the Spartans
gained possession and called for
a time out at 5:25. At this
point Coach Bill Perigo made his

gained possession, Ferrari poured
through two more from the foul
line at 1:33 as the Wolverines
tried desperately to grab the ball.
Ferrari's brace of singletons
widened the bulge to 54-50, but
Michigan came charging down
the court. Pavichevich lofted in
a dramatic one-hander from
the keyhole at 1:20, to cut the
winners' lead to two markers.
But once again the MSC stall
resumed at mid-court, as stubby
guard Ricky Ayala took the role
of playmaker in the Spartan wait-
ing game.
WITH 28 SECONDS left, Pavi-
chevich came roaring out of the
pack underneath the boards to
steal the ball away from Ayala.
He passed off to Eaddy who drib-
bled down the hardwood in a one-
man fast break.
The high-scoring Michigan
guard drove all the way, throw-
ing up an underhanded layup
that hung on the rim before
falling off.
That was it as far as the Maize
and Blue was concerned. Ferrari
added two more free throws with
ten seconds remaining to put the
finishing touches on Michigan's
14th league defeat.
