Overpower

Minnesota, 105-92

By ROB SALTZSTEIN
Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS-"I don't know
-we Just fell apart."
That little quote, by a girl
named Candy, captain of the Min-
nesota cheerleaders, vaguely tells
the story of what the Wolverines
did to Minnesota last night here,
in Williams Arena as they laid the
Gophers to rest, 105-92.
"We sort of tortured them a
little, Kondla especially (Tom
Kondla, Gopher star and the Big
Ten's leading scorer last season).
For the first time, I would say we
really put a team away this year."
On the Money
This quote, by Michigan coach
Dave Strack, is not so vague. It's
right on the money-for that is
exactly what Michigan did, they
put Minnesota away and they did
it like a group of happy butchers
at a meat-cutting convention.
Trailing 45-44 going into the
second half, the Wolverines erupt-
ed with a display of basketball
fireworks that fizzled Minnesota's
two-game winning streak and
pushed them into a tie with the
Wolverines for cellar honors.
All the Wolverines, led by Rudy
Tomjanovich, strong on the
boards, and Ken Maxie, loose on
the open court, played brilliantly
for Strack's crew.
Tomjanovich hauled in 22 re-
bounds and socked the nets for 31
points.
Maxie made five steals, at one
point taking the ball away from

This lead was sparked by Maxie
stealing the ball almost as fast as
Minnesota could take it out of
bounds, and with Stewart, Sullivan
and Pitts pumping in twenty-foot-
ers as fast as Maxie could feed
them.
With 7:08 remaining in the
game Tomjanovich began to open
up from the outsideband; tossed in
six straight points in a little over
60 seconds. If the Gopher back had
not already been broken, this shat-
tered it.
"We've had a lot of tough luck
this season," said Strack, "and this
makes up for a little of it. Once
we had them on the ropes, we
didn't let them off. It was a great
team effort all the way."
As Tomjanovich was leaving the
lockerroom, Strack gleefully shout-
ed, "Rudy, you out-rebounded your
man 23-3." Rudy grunted and left
without looking back. It was that
kind of a win, just a breeze in the
second half.

the Gophers three consecutive
times.
Jim Pitts and Dennis Stewart
combined for 41 points and in the
process shot the Gophers silly both
from the inside and the outside.
And Bob Sullivan? He passed'
behind his back, over his head, and
around his shoulders so often and
with so much success that he left
Minnesota fans muttering about
players who deliberately show-off.
The Wolverines started out slow-
ly and trailed Minnesota 10-4 with
just under three minutes gone in
the first half. Then Stewart and
Tomjanovich, beginning to hit
with consistancy, pushed Michigan
into a 13-12 lead. The game then
se-sawed back and forth with the
first half ending with the Wolver-
ines trailing 44-45.
Michigan shot poorly in this
half, hitting only at 36.4 per cent
clip; but they out-rebounded the
taller Gophers 24-16. In the sec-
ond half they were to use this
superiority to anihilate Minne.-
sota.
Scoring Spree
Tomjanovich held Kondla to
three rebounds while picking up
15 himself. With the score knotted
54-54 at 17:59 remaining, Mich-
igan went on its biggest scoring
spree of the season, scoring 21 of
the next 26 points to take a com-
manding 75-59 lead in the next
six minutes.

EAST LANSING-"We beat 'em inexperienced team amassed all its
with a bunch of non-swimmers" points with only two first places,1
said Wolverine coach Gus Stager relying instead on its overwhelm-
after his freshmen had turned ing depth.
the 1968 Big Ten frosh meet into Greg Zann took one first with
a shambles by walloping runner- a nifty :22.1 in the 50-yard free-
up Michigan State by nearly 75 style and Bill Mahoney took the
points and Indiana by almost 90. other with a 2:15.72 in the 200-
Stager was referring to his own yard breastroke-a time that
unorthodox recruiting program
which emphasizes a) an over- .
whelming desire to come to Mich-
igan and b) an equally overwhelm-
ing desire to work like hell, while
honors won in high school are :
thought of as only secondary.
"Actually, we like this meet be-
cause we can see some of the
swimmers we considered recruit-
ing a year ago, and then beaty
their brains out," said Stager.
And if beating the opposition's
brains out was the result desired, <r
it certainly was accomplished with
dispatch as the Wolverine cubs
racked up 366 points to MSU's
291.5, Indiana's 276.5, Wisconsin's
135, Northwestern's 94, Ohio
State's 87, and Iowa's 54.
This was based on the regular
Big Ten and NCAA champion-
ships scoring system of 16, 13,
12, 11, 10, 9, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 for
first through twelfth places, with MIKE CASEY

would embarrass most of the con-
farence's varsity breaststrokers.
Yet even with these two re-
sults,hStager said "Mike Casey
was the hero of the meet." All
Casey did was finish second 'to
MSU's George Gonzales in the
1000-yard freestyle, where he was
just touched out with a 10:15.00,
compared to a 10:14:06 for the
winner.
He followed this up in the 500
with a 4:56.07 compared to a
4:55.02 for Gonzales. Then he an-
chored the 400-yard freestyle relay
.team which was just touched out,
3:15.44 to 3:15.00 by Indiana.
Actually this performance sym-
bolized the entire meet as the
Wolverines captured second place
in nine out of the thirteen events,
and nearly all of them were ex-
tremely close.
The Wolverines started off los-i
ing the 400-yard medley relay to
Indiana by 11/2 seconds. Aftert
Casey was second in the 1000-1
free, Bob Zann, twin brother of
Greg, lost the 200-free by less
than a second.l

Special To The Daily1
BLOOMINGTON, Ind.-Michi-
'9 gan's track squad, beset by minor
injuries and other pesky misfor-
tunes for the past two weeks, got
up, dusted itself off, and turned
in a convincing 94-56 dual meet
victory over a strong Indiana
team yesterday.
It was the final tuneup for
0 the Wolverines before the Big Ten
Championship meet, and they
made it count by winning 12 of
16 events. The Michigan victory
margin was 11 points better than
that recorded by defending con-
ference champ Wisconsin against
the Hoosiers earlier this season.
Points
Coach Don Canham expressed
disappointment with the poor
showing by the opposition, but
could hardly complain about his
own team's performance.
Wolverines grabbed points where
they were expected to grab
points, then grabbed points where
only Hoosiers were supposed to
grab points.
Ron Kutschinski, returning aft-
er sitting out two meets with a

knee injury, set a field house rec-
ord with his 2:10.9 clocking in
the 1000-yard run.
And teammate George Hoey
knocked off a :06.160 (best in the
conference this year), Ira Russell
took the long jump with a 23'-
11%" effort (his best this sea-
son), and Gary Knickerbocker
won the high jump (6'-8") for
the fourth time in five weeks.
Meanwhile, sophomore Paul
Armstrong's 1:53.2 half mile tied
another field house mark, and
junior Larry Midlam matched his
own Michigan 70-yard high hur-
dles record with a :08.4 perform-
ance (still second to Indiana ace
Bob White).
Steve Bishop and Leon Grund-
stein each recorded his first win
of the season-Bishop with a
4:15.9 in the mile run, and
Grundstein with a 300 clocking of
:31.7.
The home-standing Hoosiers
won both hurdle races, the shot
put and the mile relay. Both of
the last two events have been
weak spots for the Wolverines all
season.
