Illinois last, season, playing forward in 1968-68 — at least some of the time. Soholz unselfishly made the conversion because Coach Hai'v Schmidt feels that Illinois' best team has to include both Scholz and 6-8 sophomore Greg Jackson of Chicago St. Philip. While Scholz will be called a forward, Schmidt doesn't intend I to make him a true forward offensively. The Illini attack j will be geared to give Dave the | same shots with which he amassed 529 points last winter, i "Dave is better equipped now to play outside than he was a Jackson in scrimmages. "Dave will be at his natural spot quite a bit when both oi them are in there," Schmidt explained. "We aren't giving away any secrets when we say that we're going to be in ; high-low post situation some of the time. "His biggest adjustment is Dave and Greg in there at the same time." That could be an imposing sight to opponents. Teams which have set defenses to stop the big senior now will have a new problem. And they won' be able to practice against just e r, one alignment of personnel. They'll have to be ready for a high-low post attack, a single post attack with Scholz working r/n the outside, and an offense with Scholz, himself, on tiie post. Throw in the variations which will be possible with depth of talent at the other three positions, and it is possible to see how the Illinois offense of 1968-69 could cause consternation in the Big Ten. Brock'Wins Three Categories Rose Is NL Batting Champion With .335 By HAROLD HARBISON CINCINNATI (AP) — Pete Rose, Cincinnati Reds' outfield- is the official National League 1968 batting champion, thus ending a four-year-old hold by the Pittsburgh Pirates on the hitting title. But it was a Pirate who gave Rose his toughest battle. Rose finished with .335 in 149 games and Pittsburgh's Matty Alou was second with .332 in 146 games, according to official league averages released Saturday.
