Spartans Tonight
Lansing Clash Vital to Wolverines;
Teams Play in Ann Arbor Saturday

January Sports Schedule

Michigan State's top hockey
scorer Johnny Mayes and its
best defenseman, Henry Campa-
nini, have been declared ineligi-
ble for this weekend's series with
Michigan, for not making suffic-
lent grades last semester.
Mayes and Campanini will be
ineligible until the end of MSC's
present quarter, thus dealing a
near fatal blow to the hopes of
Amo Bessone's squad.
Michigan's slumping hockey
squad opens a vital two game home
andbhome series with Michigan
State tonight in East Lansing as it
desparately tries to gain ground
in the WIIHL race.
The Wolverines, currently in
fpurth place in the league stand-
ings, have yet to notch a victory
and are a full eight points behind
the league leading Sioux of North
Dakota. The Nodaks meet second
place Minnesota this weekend in
Grand Forks, and if the Gophers
fall, North Dakota will be odds on
favorite to win the title.
AMOS Bessones' Spartans will
not be a pushover for the Wolver-
ines as in recent years, for Michi-
gan\coach Vic Heyliger has indi-
cated that the Wolverines are
weakened by injuries and that
team spirit is not exactly at a
Though forward Jay Goold's
leg has healed enough to allow
him to play tonight, the Wolver-
Ines are still not in top shape.
Lou Paolatto, the big defense-
man, is ailing with a broken
nose, and Heyliger is not sure
how much action either he or
Goold will see in the series,
which winds up tomorrow night
down at the Coliseum.
Michigan has won 16 consecu-
tive games from Michigan State,
not having bowed to the Spartans
since 1927, when the Green and
White won its only game of the
entire series.
* * *
HOWEVER, coach Bessone will

have better than average players
on the ice for the pair of one
point games. The Spartans will
be led by honorable mention All-
American center Dario Nicoli, who
teams with the fleet duo of Wel-
don Olson and Jack Mayes on the
front line. Olson was the Spartans'
most valuable player last season
and set a team record in assists,
while Mayes was named as most
valuable in 1952, and holds team
marks in goals scored and total
The Spartans, inaugurating
their league season with this set,-
will also have a rugged defensive
set-up awaiting the Wolverines.
Four seniors, Hank Campanani,
Gordon King, Jack Thomas and
Jim Ward will give the Maize
and Blue plenty of anxious mo-
ments on the defensive side of
the ledger. So will Gerald Ber-
gin, the rugged senior goalie.
Bessones' team, which so far has
won four and lost one in non-
league play, also will display some
new prospects in the series. Michi-
gan coach Heyliger is especially
wary of Charlie Wgks, a big sopho-
more center, and Dave Hendrick-
son, hard working~ left wing.
ON THE other hand, the weak-
ened Wolverines will show some
new lines in series. Heyliger has
moved the limping Goold into the
third line, necessitating the ele-
vation of Yves Hebert into the
second line, along with Bill Mc-
Farland and Doug Philpott. As
usual, it will be the top line of
George Chin, Doug Mullen, and
Pat Cooney which must carry the
brunt of the offensive burden.
The hard pressed Wolverines
must win both of these tilts in
order to stay in the running for
an NCAA playoff berth, for Michi-
gan still has to play such teams
as Minesota, Denver, and Colora-
do College, and thus must win the
so called "easy games" against
Michigan State. However it is
feared that the Spartans will not
be as docile as in the past, and the
games wont be so 'easy" for the
Wolverines afterall.

Michigan's Big Ten opponents.
Walters, Michigan's leading diver
picks Ohio's Jerry Harrison and
Morely. Shapiro as the best that
he will face in the impending cam-
paign. Harrison finished second in
the three meter and third in the
one meter diving in last year's Big
Ten championships at Iowa City.
Shapiro wound up second on the
low boards, but slipped to sixth in
the higher event.
These boys give the Buckeyes
a good cushion to lean on; for
they are usually good for eight
points in most of their dual
meets and probably nine or
twelve in the championship af-
fair. Harrison won the nation-
al one meter title and finished

Mary Johnson, the captain of
coach Newt Loken's crew, is one
of the best gymnasts in the con-

as the most valuable man on last
year's squad Johnson showed his
skill by taking second in the free
exercise event in the conference
* *, *
JOHNSON'S versatility is typi-'
cal of the entire gym squad, and
is one big reason why the Wol-
verines are recognized as a con-
ference power this year. The agile
senior is capable of performing in
every event, but he claims the par-
ellel bars, high bar, and free exer-
cise as his specialties.
In the Wolerines' season op-
ener against Notre Dame, John-
son captured first place on the
parallel bars, garnering 278 out
of a possible 300 points. He is
also one of the top all-events
men in the Big Ten.
"Mary has amazing perserver-
ance," says Loken. "He works as
hard as any man on the team."
This hard work has enabled John-
son to reach the top as a college
gymnast. Loken considers him a
very strong contender for confer-
ence individual titles in free exer-
cise, parallel bars, high bar, and

Johnson is very enthusiastic
over Michigan's chances in the
conference meet this March. "It's
a great year to be captain," he
claims. "We've got a great team.
Just look at the depth; we can
enter six men in some exents.
That's the kind of depth it takes
to win the championship. This is
the first time in years that we've
had this much depth."

last year of nine victories, four
losses and two ties, and finished

ships has already competed and
won three matches this year.
The Fighting Illini defeated
Great Lakes and Cornell in suc-
cessive weeks early in December
and then squeeked by Indiana,
14-12. One of the top perform-
ers on the Illinois team is soph-
omore Larry Ten Pas who is
used by his coach "Pat" Patter-
son at both 157 and 167 pounds.
Against Indiana, the highly her-
alded Ten Pas pinned Chuck Pan-
kow, Big Ten champ a year ago,
in 4:15. It must be noted that this
is the second Big Ten champ that
the sophomore star has vanquish-
ed. While in high school Ten Pas
pinned Jilh Ellis in :50 in the
Olympic tryouts.

Basketball Rules Reviewed for Fans

(This ,s the first of, a two-story
series on basketball rules. It is aimed
primarily at those unfamiliar with
the sport. Today's article concerns
a' general rules and Infractions other
than fouls. The second story will be
on the different types of fouls and the
number of shots taken after a foul.)
The game of basketball can be
pretty confusing to those who are
not familiar with it and this story
is designed mainly to help those
inexpert' fans better understand
and enjoy the game.
Basketball is played on a court
with minimum dimensions of 74
feet in length and 42 in width.
However it is preferred that
whenever possible the court be
maximum size, which is 94 by 50.
The free throw line is 15 feet
from an imaginary line on the
floor directly under the back-
board. The basket is 18 inches in
diameter and 10 feet above the
The length of a college cage con-
test is 40 minutes which is divid-
ed into four, ten-minute periods.
Each quarter is started with the
ball tossed between two players of
opposing teams in the small circle
at the center of the court.
There are various violations in
basketball (violations differ from
fouls in that there is no free throw
for the non-fouling team, belt
rather another penalty is inflict-
Most of the violations result In
the offending team losing posses-
sion of the ball and these are as
follows: (a) causing the ball to
go out of bounds (if a ball holder
is forced out of bounds by negli-
gible contact, his team retains pos-
session), (b) intentionally strik-
ing the ball with any part of the
leg from the knee down or strik-
ing the ball with a fist.
Other violations which come
under this category are (c) fail-
ure to pass ball onto court with-

out of bounds or having any part-
of the body on or over out-of-
bounds line, (d) failure to bring
the ball from backcourt across the
center line within ten seconds or
once across the line causing the
ball to go into the backcourt, (e)
having one or both feet in the free
throw lane between the out-of-
bounds line and the foul line.
The violation list continues with
(f) a non-jumper entering the re-
straining circle before a jump ball
is tapped, (g) dribbling a second

time after the first dribble has
ended (a dribble is considered end-
ed when the player touches the
ball with both hands or permits
it to come to rest while in con-
tact with it.)
This violation does not apply if
the player tries for a field goal,
has the ball knocked out of his
hands, or has a pass or fumbled
ball touched by another player. He
can make only one air-dribble dur-
ing a dribble (an air dribble is
part of a dribble during which the
player throws or taps the ball in

the air and touches it before it hits
the floor.
The final violation which causes
the team to lose the ball is run-
ning with the ball. This is defined
as follows; (a) moving both feet
while not dribbling, (b) jumping
in the air or moving the stationary
foot off the ground and failing to
get rid of the ball before again
touching the floor, (c) failure to
come to a stop in two counts after
a dribble.
The first count occurs as a play-
er receives the ball if either foot is
touching the floor, or when either
or both feet touch the floor if the
player is in the air when he re-
ceives the ball. The second count
occurs when after count one,
either foot or both feet simultan-
eously touch the court.
Another type of violation re-
sults in two points for the team
not committing the infraction.
This is touching the ball or op-
ponent's basket while the ball is
on or within such basket, or touch-
ing the ball after it has started
its downward flight during an op-
ponents attempt for a field goal.
This latter applies only if the ball
is above the basket and only until
it is apparent that the ball will
not hit the backboard or basket.
The final violation involves free
throws. If a player on the team
attempting the shot crosses the
foul line or free throw lane, the
shot will not count. If an oppos-
ing player does this, and the shot
is unsuccessful, the shooter will
be given another try,
