TranscriptSalukis Seeking Big Ten Victory Against Michigan

SIU's cagers will be seeking to capture the school's first Big Ten victory inhistory tonight when they take on Michigan State at 10 p.m. in the third game of a tripleheader at Chicago Stadium.
Southern teams have not been successful in meetings with Big Ten opponents on six previous occasions. The last attempt was against Iowa in December, but the Hawkeyes out-defensed the Salukis, 61- 49.
The Spartans, coached by John Bennington were co-champions of their conference last season and currently are credited with a 6-7 record following a 76-71 loss to Iowa last Tuesday. JackHartman's Salukis own a 9-5 record after their five-game winning streak snapped at the hand of Evansville, 52-45, Wednesday.
The man to vatch for the Spartans is 6-6 junior forward Lee Lafayette. He's the team's leading scorer, averaging 17.5 ppg, and rebounder, with 10.5 per contest.
Lafayette had just an average sophomore year (he averaged 14.8 ppg) in respect
to his outstanding potential, " Bennington says. "He's done a good job for us this season and is improving all the time."
His best performance this season was when Lafayette scored 31 points in a 90-80 loss to Wichita State on the Shockers' home court. SIU beat the same team. 71-62, on the Arena floor.
Lending Lafayette a hand will be his 6-6 teammate Heywood Edwards. The senior pivoiman, follows closely in the scoring column with an average of 13.1 points per game.
"Woody is an exceptional robounder and his improved defense has helped his overall game, " Bennington notes, "He's improved his floor play and is fitting hiy abilities into the team's pattern of play well."
Bennington has used at least nine different starting units this season, but three seniors are sure to get on the board. They are guards Steve Rymal, John Bailey and Harrison Stepter. |
Bailey is averaging 10.7, Stepter 8.8' and Hymal 9.5 points per game for the Spartans.
SIU Coach Jack Hartman is expected to go with his usual starting five led by 6-3 Dick Garrett. The junior forward continues to pace Saluki scoring despite a cool night at Evansville.
Garrett has an 18.4 ppg average hitting 104 of 210 from the ffeld and 49 of 57 from the free throw line for respective shooting percentages of.49 and.86.
Rounding out the starting lineup will be Butch Butchko at pivot. Chuck Benson at the other forward position, and Bobby Jackson and Willie Griffin at the guards.
Loyola rangles with Brigham Young in the opening game at 6 p.m., and Notre Dame clashes with Illinois in the second contest.
