It was a jubilant scene in the
Michigan dressing room 1 a s tj
For the first time this season
the icers put it all together. Mich-
el Jarry, the freshmen defense-
man from St. Laurent, Quebec told
the story in a few words, "Every-,
body did it." He was exactly right.
The defense, with Jarry block-
ing numerous shots, was flawless,
aiding Karl Bagnell in his f i r s t
shutout of the campaign.
Michigan's offense was also su-
perb in the 6-0 battering of a frus-
trated Colorado College squad. Not
only did the front lines display
an explosive attack, they played
great defensive hockey. T h ei r
forechecking was so tenacious that
the Colorado attack was silenced
to a mere flicker. "There was great
organization." Bernie Gagnon ut-
tered with delight.
The wings played their posi-
tions and there was the look of

Before half of the overtime pe-
riod was over, Purdue was leading
93-85, and people were wondering
'how the, game got into overtime
in the first place. Mount said
afterwards that "we felt that once
we get a team into overtime, we
got 'em." Mount should know
about those things, he scored half
of his team's 20 points in the
King says that he didn't have
his players do anything special in
the overtime other than put on a
2-3 zone once they bolted into a
big lead.
"We just hoped to get the jump,
get started and continue to hustle
our defense," King stated. "We
got a' chance dyring the game
to give a little beather to every-
body but Rick. And I thought
we'd be a little fresher than they
would be."
During the first half, it looked
like the Boilermakers were gasp-
ing for air. Michigan's fast break
continually embarrassed Purdue at
its own game, while Tomjanovich
and his cohorts were making
King's abortive box-and-one look
sick with a 54 per cent shooting
Perhaps Michigan's whirlwind
start contained the seeds of their
While King was substituting

half, trying to find the right com-
bination of nine players to stop the

Coach John Orr kept a pat hand.
With two minutes left, Orr re-
placed injury-hampered forward
Richard "Bird"' Carter with Wayne
Grabiec. A few seconds later Harry
Hayward replaced Rod Ford and
the Wolverines scored 5 straight
points to end the half with a 49-
39 lead.
King's second half "smaller line-
up" actually involved one variation
from the original starting five. A
5-10, 170-pound midget bench-
warmer with the terribly unlikely
name of Steve Longfellow uncere-
moniously moved husky 6-7 for-
ward Bill Franklin off the court.
Actually, Longfellow's tangible ac-
complishments were rather unim-
pressive: no field goals, one free
throw, and four personal fouls.
However, despite Longfellow's
offensive efforts, the Boilermakers
were able to run off 18 points at
the beginning of the second half
while the Wolverines were held to
three free throws 'and no field
goals in five.minutes.
Or said later that King's switch
to a smaller team and a man-to-
man caught him by surprise. "We
had a cold spell and then we came
back. I guess it was their defense."
The Wolverines did battle back
from a 59=52 deficit, with unex-
pected help from reserves Grabiec
(six points) and Mark Henry
(five). For 12 minutes the teams
exchanged the lead like a live
grenade until Bloodworth's en-
counter with Mount.

put it up while on the way down,

over the overtime to come.

. meetthe spoiler
BEFORE THE START of yesterday afternoon's basketball
game at the Events Building, everyone cast Purdue's All-
American Rick Mount in the role of the spoiler. If Michigan lost,
so the reasoning went, it would be because of the hot hand of
Mount, who went into the contest averaging 30.6 points for
eight games.
To be sure, Mount's deadly shooting took its toll, as the
Wolverines dropped a 103-96 overtime game to the high-flying
The 6-4 senior tossed in 39 points'for the afternoon, ten of
them coming in the fateful overtime period. Purdue's Golden
Boy hit on 16 of 36 field goal attempts, and sank seven of eight
free throws.
Mount's performance drew praise from Michigan Coach
Johnny Orr. "He's a very fine player," the Michigan mentor
stated after the game.
Despite his praise for Mount, however, it wasn't the Boiler-
makers' Golden Boy whom Orr cast in the role of spoiler, but
rather a lesser known man named Jerry Menz.
Menz doesn't wear the short pants and sleeveless shirts of
the Purdue basketball.team; instead, he wears the striped jer-
seys of the referees, and Orr was vehement in his appraisal of
Menz's job out on the hardcourt floor.

calmly kicked aside. Winograd's

chance of the evening.
From then on, Michigan dom-
inated the play. Don Deeks open-
ed the scoring at the 14:47 mark
when Barney Pashak set up the
open Deeks at the Colorado goal
mouth. Deeks made no mistake
as he slid the puck under the
sprawling goalie, Doug Schum.
Michigan continued to bottle up'
the Tigers as they skated off the,
ice with a 1-0 lead after twenty
minutes of action.;
The icers broke the game open
in the second period on t w o
solo efforts. The forechecking be-
gan to pay off when Buck Straub

Tiger blue line, and moved in on

Colorado hemmed in their own

a tremendous drive that Schum

rebound went directly to Slack who
slapped its by the disheartened
goalie to end the scoring.

"WHEN YOU PAY a guy $110 to referee a game, you ex-
pect him to be on the ball," Orr stated. The obvious implication
was that referee Menz wasn't.
Orr's comments about Menz's officiating stem from a play
that occurred with only 44 seconds left in regulation time and
Michigan holding a two-point lead, 83-81.
Michigan guard Rick Bloodworth was bringing the ball up
the court, with. Mount guarding him. Just past the half-court
stripe, Bloodworth and Mount went down in a heap, stayed on
the floor a couple of seconds, and then, along with the coaches
and over 13,000 partisans, saw Menz call Bloodworth for travel-
ing anditurn the ball over to Purdue.
'I just can't believe that call," Orr told the press later. "I
can't understand it.
"If it had been anyone else but Mount," Orr continued,
"that would've been a foul. He wouldn't call a foul on Mount,
and that cost us the ballgame."
Assistant Coach Freddy Snowden was more poetic, but no
less irate. "The ref choked like he had an olive in his throat,"
Snowden commented.
Continued Snowden, "When two men go down, it's either
got to be charging on one (Bloodworth), or blocking on the
other (Mount) ."
'"THE -CALL DOESN'T mean a thing to the refs," added
Orr. "They just go home and forget it. But it means a lot to
me and Freddie and the team.
The referee's call also brought on the wrath of the Michi-
gan fans, who rose in unison after Menz made his call, and
drowned the second-year ref in catcalls.
The fans quieted down for awhile when Michigan called
time-out immediately after the call. But they rose again ; in
unison after the time-out period as the Boilermaker's brought
the ball in play.
The wrath of the fans, though, like the wrath of Coaches
Orr and Snowden, didn't help the Wolverine five, as L a r r y
Weatherford sunk a 20 foot jump shot to tie the score and
send the game into overtime.
Michigan lost one last opportunity to win the game in
the closing seconds of regulation play as Dann Fife's driving
lay-up appeared to go in but then spun around and came out
again. Then the Maize and Blue got buried in the five-minute
overtime period, 20-13.
Still, as far as Orr and Snowden and a lot of Wolverine par-
tisans are concerned, it was Menz's traveling call on Blood-
worth, and not Fife's missed lay-up or the Boilermakers' over-
time surge that was responsible for the Wolverines' loss.
"I'm sick over that call," Orr stated. Then, a bit more
philosophically, he added, "But I guess that's part of ath-

0 EVANSTON - Michigan's wrest-
lers began the Big Ten season on
a sour note yesterday, losing to
Northwestern 21-16 in a dual meet
at Evanston.
The afternoon started badly for
the Wolverines, as Northwestern's
Mark Massery pined Michigan's
Jerry Hoddy. Hoddy held an
early lead in the match, but Mas-
sery tied the score during the
second period. Massery continued
to gain in the third period, and,
after putting Hoddy on his back,
pinned him with fifteen seconds
Tim Cech, Michigan's 126
pounder, returned the favor by
pinning Northwestern's H o w a r d
Kingry two minutes into the
second period. The next four
matches were extremely close, with
the outcome in all of them being
uncertain until the matches 'were
over. Michigan's 134 pounder Ty
Belknap secured a 6-4 victory over
Wydell Boyd by getting a take-!
down in the final minute, and
maintaining control until the buz-
zer sounded.
