A gift for
"the host team
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY no place like home, just ask the
Boilermakers of Purdue. Getting a lot of help from officials
and 53 points from Rick Mount they downed Michigan, 116-103,
The Boilermakers went down to an ignominious defeat at
Northwestern last week and were glad to return to the friendly
confines of their own arena. They've got the crowd here, the
baskets zeroed in and the officiating going their way. "That's
the way we've got to have it at our place." Commented Johnny
Orr after the game. "That's why they've won 27 straight here."
Purdue certainly was tough as the Boilermakers ran in the
style that won the Big Ten Championship for them last year.
But they wouldn't have made it into the winners circle without
the help of Lenny Wirtz, Red Strauthers and Roger Palesse,
yesterday's lovely zebras. They had .three fouls on Dan Fife
only four minutes into the contest and made things even
tougher on the Wolverine backcourt by saddling Mark Henry
and Rick Bloodworth with three each before the half was over.
The fouls were all either offensive (and debatable) or called
while they guarded Mount. Mount is, to the least, a superlative
shooter and will draw fouls, but the referees around the Big
Ten give him a big hand when he plays before the home folks,
"the officials protect him." Henry said, "At home they tend to
protect home."
A case in point was Henry's third foul, called just before the
first half ended. "It was a dumb call," Henry asserted. "It was
a guess on Strauthers' part, he was behind me." Obviously, an
4 official cannot see a foul when his vision is obscured, but when
Mount is the man in the his air the odds are pretty good that
one will be called anyway.
The biased officiating wasn't confined to Mount, though,
or Michigan might have pulled the contest out. Purdue out
rebounded the Wolverines 58-43 and part of it was due to lax
officiating under the boards. When asked of the referees had let
, Boilermakers go nder the basket, Rudy Tomjanovich answered,
"definitely." Toin anovich himself still managed to tie the arena
record by snagging 21 caroms.
Even in doing that Rudy was pimped by the whistle
blowers. Orr asked a pertinent question about this fact.
"How," he asked, "can Tomianovich go to the boards like
that and only get to shoot six free throws?"
Orr seemed resigned, though, and not mystified by the
whole affair. He just shrugged and commented that, "things
werent' ecactly what I would call even out there." In a game
that was extremely quick and tough Purdue got a supreme edge
from the fact that things" were not called tighter and not
The Boilermakers were tough on the board, probably better
than they have been all season. This factor was bound to hurt
, the Wolverines as long as the wlitstles weren't active.
"It was a physical .game," Orr told me. "They really but-
chered us in there." Tomjanovich's comment above just cor-
robarates his coach's thoughts:
Rudy went on to add, "they're a tough team but that's the
way you've supposed to play the game, and tough boarding is
part of basketball and a necessary ingredient of victory. Un-
fortunately, in the Big Ten a team that hits the glass must be
at home before it wins. Only on the home court will a club get
the kind of officiating that will keep the game under control.
The bigger crime, though is that a control is usually the
least of a team of officials will call. In most cases the whistle
will help the home town squad.
Michigan does not have the kind of pit that engenders such
calling, but even the Wolverines have gotten some friendly calls
this season. The victory over Marquette was certainly aided by
some pro-Michigan calls.
It's a ridiculous situation, one that only causes ill feel-
ings, bad tempers and poor basketball. The ~champion often
will not be the best team because of the quirks of the sch-
edile, Orr commented on this when he said, "I think Iowa.
is the best team I've seen this year but I don't think they'll
win it. They have to play Illinois at home .and there's no
way they'll win there."
As long as the situation exists coaches will have to live
with it. That's why, when Orr talks about crowds, he says,
"That's the way we've got to have it in our place."
Until that day comes or until the road is a kinder place
Orr will have to suffer. He's been reprimanded twice by the Big
Ten for his comments on officials so now he must remain in
"If I told you what I think, it wouldn't be printed," he told
reporters after the debacle. Or if it was he would probably get
another reprimand. And right aboutflow, the only thing that

Orr would like to see from the commissioner's office is a notice
that in the future all games will be played on a neutral court.
When that happens the Wirtzs and Strauthers of this world wil'
not be able to apply the screws to visiting teams.

Special to the Daily
WEST LAFAYETTE -- Purdue's Rich
Mount performed a scoring soliloquy at
the Purdue arena here yesterday after-
noon that rocketed the Boilermakers to a
116-103 win over the Wolverine cagers.
Mount hit on 22 of 42 field goal at-
tempts and collected nine of ten from
the free throw line. His total of 53
points set a new field house record.
The Boilermakers' golden boy was es-
pecially deadly. in the first half, col-
lecting 29 of his points on 12 of 21
shots from the field, and in the closing
minutes of the second stanza, he scored
eight of his team's last 12 points to stave
off the stubborn Wolverines.
The Boilermakers needed all the heroics
Mount could muster from his 6-4 frame,
however, as the spunky Wolverines kept
battling back throughout the s e c o n d
Although the Wolverines never captur-
ed the lead during the second half, they
fought to within 3 points of the Boiler-
makers after trailing by as much as 10
with just eight and a half minutes left
to play.
Led by Rudy Tomjanovich, who scored
22 of his 36 points in the second frame
and collected 16 of his 21 rebounds in
that frame, Michigan outscored their In-
diana rivals 21-14 over a six minute
stretch to close the gap to 104-101 with
only 2:38 left on the clock.
But then as Orr put it after the game,
"We couldn't quite catch them. We kept'
coming after them, but we just couldn't
catch up.
The Wolverines were hurt in these
closing couple of minutes by fouls, as
Mark Henry and Rodney Ford were both




called for offensive fouls while R i c k
Bloodworth and Dan Fife added a pair
of hacking fouls on Mount and G e o r g e
Faerber. The fouls on Fife and Henry
were their fifth.
Purdue converted all the fouls into
points, too. Fife's foul came after Mount
scored on a driving lay-up. And the
senior guard converted to make it 107-
Faerber scored Purdue's next pair of
points, and then Mount added another
pair after Henry was called for charging.
Tomjanovich wedged in a pair of
points for the Wolverines on a driving
lay-up, but then Ford was whistled for
an offensive foul.
Bloodworth fouled Faerber, who missed
the first of his one-and-one shots, but the
referees weren't done whistling at the
Wolverines as Tomjanovich got a tech-
nical for grabbing the rim trying to get
a rebound. Mount converted the f r e e
throw and then scored again when the
Boilermakers took the ball in bounds, to
make the score 114-103, with just 13
seconds showing on the clock.
The refs whistles weren't directed at
the Wolverines only during the final min-
utes of the game. However, at the end of
the first half, three Michigan men -
Bloodworth, Henry and Dan Fife - all
had three fouls.

Fife's three fouls came in the first
few minutes of play, and he was forced
to sit out almost three quarters of the
half. As Orr commented after the game,
"You bet these fouls hurt us, especially
The Wolverines were also hurt in the
rebounding department in the first half,
as the Boilermakers out rebounded Orr's
charges to the tune of 33-16.
Purdue's rebounding gave the Boiler-
mawers opportunities for extra shots un-
der their own basket, these extra shots
were, in fact, the main reason for Pur-
due's first half surge, which saw them
come back from a 24-12 deficit with 13:55
left, to take a 54-48 advantage at the
Percentage-wise, the Wolverines outshot
the Boilermakers, 46.5 percent to 45.8
percent. The Boilermakers, however, took
five more shots.
In fact, the Wolverines actually out-
shot the Boilermakers all afternoon, pop-
ping in 48.8 prcent of their field goal
attempts to 45.7 percent for Purdue.
The Wolverines also forced the Boiler-
makers into frequent turnovers early in
the first half, as they jumped out to a
10-0 lead in the first two minutes.
But then the Boilermakers rebounding,
the referees whistle and Rick Mount's
shooting caught up with them.

Tankers splash Spartans, 70-53

Captain Gary Kinkead's triple
victories spurred a pack of Wol,
verine swimmers to beat their
Spartan counterparts as Michigan
sunk Michigan State, 70-53, in a
running battle that lasted until
the closing events.
Kinkead took the 200-yard in-
dividual medley with a 1:58.9, his
best so far, after a grueling race
in the 1000-yard distance event
earlier in the meet, which he also
won, recording another best time
of 10:04.6. The victory in the in-
dividual medley set the Wolverines
back on keel after trailing 23-25.
"Part of our chances for win-
ning rested on beating Kinkead,"
commented Michigan State coach
Dick Fetter. "He was just too
Kinkead finished his workout
for the day by capturing the final
distance event, the 500-yard free-
style, easily outpacing his Green
and White opponents.

petition. "Our schedule of tough
meets keeps us sharp and provides
good experience for us. I think
that Kinkead's performance in
the 1000-yard and his subsequent
comeback in the individual medley
showed this."
Other fine performances were
handed in by the younger team
members, mainly through secur-
ing seconds and thirds, and clutch
wins on relay legs. Butterfly spe-
cialist Byron McDonald's 50.3 in
that stroke's leg of 400-yard med-
ley relay snatched that event from
the Spartans. Don Peterson sprint-
ed his final laps in the 200-yard"
individual medley to claim a sec-
ond in that event. Freshman Tim
Norlen added another first in the
200-yard butterfly with teammate
McDonald close behind in third.
Norlen and Bello, together with
Ray McCullough and Bob Zann
gave Michigan the final event, the.
400-yard freestyle relay.
The star of the three meter
board was once again the Blue's
talented Dick Rydze, who cleaned

up in that event with a high scor-
ing 337.6 points, far ahead of the
Spartan field.
Michigan diving coach Dick
Kimball expressed his delight in
Rydze, adding "I think we're ready
to take on Indiana."

Paul Schmidlin played defensive
tackle on the Ohio State football
team this year, and came to Ann
Arbor as part of a team looking to
maintain its reputation by
triumphing over a ranked team.
Yesterday afternoon, Paul
Schmidlin wrestled heavyweight
on the Ohio State wrestling team,
which came to Ann Arbor seeking
to bolster its reputation by beating
a ranked team.
Both Buckeye teams lost 24-12,
and 17-16, respectively. Paul
Schmidlin probably has no desire
to return to Ann Arbor again.
Schmidlin, a senior, with three
years of Big' Ten wrestling experi-
ence, faced Michigan freshman
Rick Bolhouse, who was wrestling
his third Big Ten match, in the
meet's deciding bout. It was no
contest, as Bolhouse won a beauti-
ful, outstanding, astonishing, in-
spiring (pick one or more) 8-3 vic-
tory-in spite of a head butt by
Schmidlin in the second period
which knocked Bolhouse out, and
forced the match be stopped until
he regained consciousness.

ceding bouts.

point of the 1969-70 season.
He got another 12 points before
the game ended, giving him 2,987
for his career.
The slender Maravich, an All-
American performer in his sopho-
more and junior seasons at LSU,
began the 1969-70 season 687
points behind Robertson and in
14th place on the all-time colleg-

Michigan thinclads impressive in 'M' relays


The Wolverine track team
cleared up any doubts Coach
Dave Martin might have had
about his team's inexperience
yesterday as they displayed re-
markable power in their season's
debut in the University of Mich-
igan Relays. The highlight of
the meet was the matchup of
three of the nation's best
sprinters, Herb Washington of
MSU, Jim Greene of Kentucky,
and Gene Brown of Michigan,
in the 60 yard dash. Each of the
i°ree has run the distance in
6.0. Brown as recently as last

House record of 6.1 seconds he
set last year.
Washington's performance did
not supply the only thrills, as
a number of Michigan thinclads
turned in admirable individual
performances in both the track
and field events. Captain Paul
Armstrong paced his team to
wins in both the two mile and
distance medley relays, posting
two blazing 1:51.2 half miles..
Running anchor in the two mile
event he closed the gap on Sam-
son of EMU and ran up a ten
yard lead to give Michigan a
win. In what looked to be a re-

ber of misses, when neither was
