" " " " " * ' " "B" " B ill

e aor the Sparians
:Once there wasaman named Oscar Robertson. He was a basket-
ball player for the Cincinnatti Royals and everyone said that he was
the best player alive.
At the same time things were not going so good for the basketball
team at Michigan so someone decided that the Spartans would re-
vive their fortunes by stealing this legendary Oscar. Of course
such a maneuver was highly illegal but they were sly about the whole
matter. They made Oscar wear number 15 instead of -14 and called
him Ralph Simpson.
Everything went fine until Bob Cousy found out what had
happened and got very angry. He felt that the real Oscar should do
his tricks for the Royals and made Michigan State give him back.
Being generous, though, Cousy sent the real Ralph Simpson to State
to replace Oscar. It was a bad deal for the Spartans.
Ralph is a great player, there's no doubt about it, but the spho-
4 more star still has to go some before he'll be the next Robertson.
He hammered in 32 points last night' but it wasn't enough to give
the Spartans a victory over a Michigan team that gave what was un-
doubtedly its best effort of the season.
The Wolverines put on a fine team show, getting balanced
scoring, and Rudy Tomanovich owned the backboards. State statis-
ticians credited him with only 17 but he probably had at least 20.
The Wolverines also got clutch foul shooting from Mark Henry
and Bird Carter and the defensive job done by Carter and Harry
Hayward on Simpson was as good as could be asked for.
SIMPSON got 32, it's true, but only hit 11 shots in 31 attempts.
Michigan defenders managed to keep a hand in his face while h'e was
firing and at other times- did a good job of keeping the ball from
him..
They had to keep him away from the ball, though, because Ralph was
a great threat when he had it. Johnny Orr summed it up when
he called Simpson "a super offensive player." And that statement tells
why Ralph can't beat people by himself the way the real Oscar can.
The trouble is that Ralph either can't or won't play defense. He is
always far off his man. Your grandmother could get the shot off on
him. Unfortunately for Ralph, it was not your grandmother who was
shooting in his eye last night. Instead is was Carter and Hayward
and no one is going to have an easy time winning when those two
guys have open shots.
The stat sheet tells the story. Carter popped home seven out of
10 from the field and Hayward did even better, hitting five for
seven. The two forwards totalled 27 points and thus practically negat-
ed any scoring that Ralph did himself.
Orr was in ecstasy over his team's performance and was parti-
cularly proud of Hayward and Carter. Referring to their shooting he
said, "Let's see who Ralph guarded." He was also pleased about their
defensive work. "We weren't going to give Ralph anything," he said,
"we played him a straight man to man and did the job"
ORR had good reason for his joy because many had speculated
that Simpson would destroy a Michigan team that did not list defense
as its forte. But the Wolverines used a tight man and effectively
harried State with a press in the first half while they build up a lead.
A significant fact is that Michigan was never behind and that was
not lost upon Orr. "They never had us," Orr exulted.
"How about that first half," he continued, "we just played a
super half. That gives up two in a row up Here, how sweet it is!"
Winning at State is quite an achievement at any time but doing
it twice straight is almost unbelievable. The fans make it tough and
the officials don't make matters easier. Several steals that Rudy
Benjamin and Tim Bograkos made during the wild finish were kind
of violent. "They got away with a lot of fouls when they stole that
ball," Orr complained.
The Michigan mentor couldn't keep a long face about anything
though. It was just too good a win. Most close games this season have
ended with the lament that a few breaks could have swung it the
other way. Last night Michigan didn't have to suffer over a few
mistakes. Instead, the Wolverines avoided the crucial errors, forced
Spartan mistakes and watched the errors kill the opponent.
That alone would have made it a beautiful evening. Having it
happen against Michigan State made things even better. And doing
it against a team that has the next Oscar Robertson was the best
part of all.-

EAST LANSING - For a short
while at Jenison Field House here
last night, it looked like the game
might be an instant replay of a
couple of the Wolverine cagers'
Big Ten losses "earlier this season;
as the Wolverines built up a big
lead early in the contest and then
watched the Spartans get hot and
start whittling away at that lead.
But the Maize and Blue added
an O'Henry twist to their standard
script, as Mark Henry and Bird
Carter produced some clutch
shooting to give the Wolverines a
91-88 win over the Spartans.

the Wolverines' 15 point margin

four minutes left to play, Carter
and Henry collected 10 of Michi-
gan's last 11 points.
The Wolverinens, who went into
the half with a 47-33 lead, still led
by 15 points with 5:52 left to play
in the game.
I But then the Spartans, who shot
a cold 35 per cent in the first half
and only a slightly warmer 41.4 per
cent for the entire evening, came
to life, tscoring nine straight
points to cut the Wolverines' lead
to 80-74.
But Henry and Carter, who fin-
ished with 9 and 17 points respec-
tively, showed that the Wolverines
still had some mustard left in their
Iattack.
Henry drew a foul from Rudy
Benjamin, the Spartan guard, and
converted two one-on-one free
throws. After the Spartans missed
a shot under their own basket,
Carter took a long pass from Dan
Fife and dumped the ball through'
the .hoop to bring the Wolverines
up to 84-74.
Henry got the next two for the
Wolverines, as the Spartans were
called for goaltending.

The game wasn't over yet,
though, and it took some clutch
shooting by Carter from the free
throw stripe to keep the game out
of the grasp of the Green Meanies,
The Spartans, coming out in a
pressing man-to-man defense,
stole the ball a couple of times
and once again narrowed the gap
this time to 88-84.
The Spartans steals, though, en-
gineered for the most part by Ben-
'jamin, weren't exactly pure thefts,
as Benjamin repeatedly reached
around Mark Henry's arm to grab
the ball. As Michigan Coach John-
ny Or rcommented after the game,
"They got away with a lot of fouls
when they stole the ball."
But the Spartans didn't get
away with some fouls in the next
couple of minutes, as Benjamin
and Lloyd Ward each fouled Car-
ter. The Bird used the.opportunity
to pick up all his free throws for
the night, as he first connected on
one of two freebies and then hit
both ends of a one-one chance.
Carter's clutch-shooting at the
end of the game was indicative of
his play throughout the game. In
addition to his last minute free
throws, the 6-1 forward hit on 7 of
10 field goal attempts.
Six of Carter's field goals came
in the first half, as the Wolverines
jumped into an early lead, and
maintained a 13 to 17 point margin
throughout the entire half.
Rudy Tomjanovich helped the
Wolverines cause in that half with
10 points. More noteworthy, how-
ever, were Tomjanovich's 12 first-
half rebounds. The Michigan sen-

Gophers goose icers

By JOEL GREER
Special 'Io The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - "We started
out strong but became very flat
after the first period," voiced a'
disheartened Merle Falk after the'
Wolverines' second straight defeat
at the hands of league leading
Minnesota.
The Gophers exploded for four
unanswered goals during a span of
seven minutes early in the secondl
period as the Michigan defense
collapsed again. The second per-
lod outburst gave Minnesota a 4-3
lead, and the Gophers went to
complete the series sweep winning
6-3, yesterday.
In contrast to the wide open
game Friday night the contest was
a close checking affair with Mich-
igan grabbing the lead at the out-
set.
Ron Peltier, one half of the fan-
tastic brother combination from
St. Paul, went off at 7:13 of the
first period after he crashed Ber-
nie Gagnon into the boards.
P ro... ._ .. . .

The Minnesota penalty resulted
in the first Michigan goal which
same at 8:42 when Don Deeks,
slid a wrist shot passed a screened
Murray McLachlan.
The second Michigan tally came
on an excellent individual effort
by Captain Dave Perrin. Perrin
went behind the Minnesota goal,
stole the puck from the Gopher
defense went around another de-
fender and sent a pass to Brain
Skinner who was open at the
point. Skinner drilled a hard shot
Ghat Deeks turned in at the right
of McLachlan.
Another fine effort was shown
by Bernie Gagnon as he set up,
and scored, the goal that gave
Michigan at 3-0 lead at the close
of the first period. Gagnon inter-
cepted a pass at center and skated
strongly down the right wing. He
spotted Paul Gambsy on the left
wing and fed a pass to him at the
right of the Minnesota goal. As
the lone defender tried to check
Gamsby, Gagnon was open to the
left of McLachlan. Gambsy got the
pass back to Gagnon and he back-
handed it in the open corner.
The Peltier brothers started the
Gophers moving when Doug sent a
Srink-wide pass to Ron and the
tandem went in on a two-on-one
break. Ron got the puck back to
Doug who picked the upper right

hand corner to backhand a shot
past Hastings.
Both teams were short handed
when Ron Peltier brought the
Gophers within one at 4:28. Marra
was caught' in the Gopher zone
when Ron Peltier and Wally Olds
skated down the ice with only
Brian Skinner back. Peltier fin-
ished the play and the screaming
Gopher partisans went wild. Less
than two minutes later Mike Kurtz
scored the tying goal as his blue
line shot deflected off of Jerry
Lefebvre' and eluded a helpless
Hastings.

By NORM SCHERR
It was a long weekend that
turned out short and sweet for
Michigan swimmers. In a span of
a little 'more than 24 hours they
claimed victories over Southern
Methodist, Purdue and Princeton,
to raise their season mark to six
straight dual meet wins.
Both Purdue and Princeton
were handily defeated yesterday,
84-39 and 75-48 respectively, in
anticlimactic battle following the
Wolverines' narrow triumph, 57-
56, over a highly rated SMU squad
on Friday.
While the times were not ex-
ceptional, Michigan swimmers still
managed to take 11 out of 13'
firsts from the slower Boiler-
makers.' Curt Finney paced the
Wolverines with double victories
in the distance freestyle, and Tim
Sullivan, Jeff Watts and Bob
Zann led in the sprints and mid-
dle distance events.
The 200-yard individual medley
was the specialty of Don Peterson,
while thebreaststroke and back-
stroke were .captured by Mike
Whitaker and Rick Dorney.
Against Princeton, the Wolver-
ines did not fare as well in the
backstroke and butterfly, but'
managed quite ably in the other

events. The individual medley was
easily won by Captain Gary Kin-
kead, and the freestyle fell to
Wolverine Greg Zann, Juan Bello,
Tim Sullivan, Dave Kelley and
Larry Day. Mike Whitaker re-
peated in the breaststroke.
For Michigan's divers thp week-
end proved to be a bonanza. Dick
Rydze and Alan Gagnet, the dy-
namic duo of Blue boards, aided
their team's revenge against SMU
by sweeping one-two on the low
board and one-three on the high,
providing the one point margin
for victory.
Against Purdue Chris Newcomer
and Jim McKee captured the
three meter event while John
Hamilton placed first on the one
meter board.
Later in the day, Rydze and
Gagnet repeated their fine per-
formances of the night before by
taking the -low board event from
Princeton. The Tigers struck back
on the high board, with John
Huffstutler outdiving Michigan's
Bruce McManaman, taking .the
only event yielded by the Wolver-
ine 'springers during the entire
series.;
The depth and experience o
the diving team enable Coach Dick

Kimball to experiment with the
placement of his divers. "After
knocking off SMU, the pressure
eased, and we had a chance to
maneuver around and check out
the team. They all turned in top
notch performances.
"Rydze and Gagnet were their
consistent best, and I was greatly
pleased with McKee and New-
comer."

EAST LANSING-Managing to
blow a 9 point halftime lead, the
Michigan f r e s h m a n basketball
team went down to defeat at the
hands of Michigan State's unbeat-
en frosh last night, 79-73.
Ahead by as much as 10 in the
second half, the Wolverines scored
only 25 points in that period, hit-
ting only 26.5 per cent of their
shots from the floor. Only two
Michigan players, Leon Roberts
and Henry Wilmore scored field
goals in the second stanza.
At the end of the first period
it appeared ' that the Michigan
frosh had the contest well in hang.
They led by as much as 16 points
and controlled the game until'
Ernie Johnson was benched with
three fouls with about nine min.
utes left in the first half.
Henry Wilmore led .the attack.
as he swished 9 of 10 from the,
field and two for. four from :the:
line for20 points in the period,
even though he spent six minutes
resting on the bench.
The Wolverines built their lead
on a 14-2 streak early in the per-
iod, running the score from 7-6
to 21-8 before the Spartans man-
aged to sink a free throw.J
With the removal of Johnson
and John Lockard late in the first
period the Wolverines lost icontrol
of the backboards and the Spar-

tans began to fight back. Five
minutes into the second period
they were within three and inan-
other four minutes they were,
ahead.
Michigan tried to come back but
even though four of the five State
players, all except 5'2" Gary Gan-
akas, had four fouls, the Spartans
managed to hang on.
They were helped by the Wol-,
verines' inability to score and by
their propensity. to turn the ball
over. The State marksmen also
helped themselves s they sank
71.4 per cent of their second per-
iod shots.
Wilmore put on his best per-
formance of the season in the los-
ing cause, finishing with 34 points
and missing only five shots from
the floor. Roberts was next with
11 followed by Johnson with 10.
