MICHIGAN COACH Johnny- Orr is usually not prone to
criticize the efforts of his Wolverine cagers. In fact, Orr
usually manages to find quite a bit to praise his boys about,
even when they lose.
Well, all that was changed after Tuesday night's debacle at
Evansville, where the Wolverines turned the game over to
the Purple Aces by a score of 78-73. Orr was succinct, and
highly critical, in- his appraisal of Michigan's performance
during the game.
"It was the worst game we've played all year," Orr com-
mented. "We weren't alert. We had a distinct lack of deter-
mination. We showed no fire. Nothing."
Orr's comments went right to the heart of the matter, but
the Michigan cage mentor could have said even more. He could
have said that the Wolverine's play was generally lackadaisical
and quite often disgraceful. He could have said that a team
that displayed the lack of alertness, and lack of determination
that was so apparent in the Wolverines' performance shouldn't
have even bothered showing up on the court.
Forget that the Wolverines hit less than 37 percent
of their field goal attempts. Any team can have an off night.
Event forget that the Wolverine managed to hit only 50 per-
cent of their free throws. Some nights the ball just won't go in
the basket no matter where you are when you shoot it.
BUT THAT STILL doesn't explain the fact that Michigan
committed more turnovers in each half against the Purple
Aces than they did during the entire game against Northwestern
Saturday. Nor does it explain the fact that almost every ball
that went out of bounds went to Evansville, or that the Wol-
verines failed to put their fast break in gear and didn't get back
True, the Wolverines were without the services of Rodney
Ford, who twisted his knee in a practice session Monday after-
noon, and Rick Bloodworth was suffering from a toe injury.
Ford's injury especially hurt the Maize and Blue on their fast
. break, as the 6-4 center is usually one of the first men down
the court, despite the factthat he spends a lot of time under
But the effects of these injuries should not be dwelled upon,
as Bill Fraumann, subbing for Ford, turned in a fine perform-
ance, scoring 12 points and compiling 16 rebounds, and Blood-
worth hasn't been starting lately, anyway.
Besides, whatever effects the injuries had should have been
1 offset by the absence of Layne Holmes, the Purple Aces'
second-leading scorer and one of their top rebounders, who
was suspended the morning of the game.
EVEN WITH Holmes, however, Evansville would hardly
have been a super team. The Purple Aces simple don't have
that much talent. Going into the game, the Aces sported a
meager 9-10 record against a schedule composed largely, of so-
Don Buse is a case in point. Buse, a 6-3 sophomore, is a
decent player - he might even be considered a good player
- but he is not good enough to steal the ball eight times in a
game without a lot of help from the players he's stealing from.
Steve "The Whale" Welmer is another example of the
Aces' mediocre talent. Welmer, a 245 pound giant, used his
size to good advantage under the boards. But he should not '
have been allowed to maneuver around enough to grab the ball
after it bounced off the, backboard and outside the foul lanes.
The difference was that Buse and Welmer wanted the ball, and
the Wolverines didn't.
Michigan has stayed with, and beaten, teams that are ten
times better than Evansville. They should have trumped the
Purple Aces Tuesday night and run them. clear off the court.
They certainly had the talent to do it. That they didn't is one
of the sad things about the trip to Evansville.
THE OTHER is that the Wolverines, in losing to the
Purple Aces, muffed a chance to gather up some momentum
for the last month of the season. After thumping Northwestern
Saturday, a strong performance .two nights ago would have giv-
en them a head of steam to carry them into the remaining seven
games on their schedule.
As it is, the loss left the Wolverines with a 7-10 mark.
In concrete terms, this means they've got to win six of those
seven to match last year's 13-11 record, and go 5-2 to finish
at the break even point for the season.
With home-and-home games scheduled against Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Indiana, plus an away game against Toledo, it
looks like the Wolverine cagers have a long road to hoe.
