Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - A three-point play by Minnesota's
Larry Mikan with just over three minutes to play provided the
break the Gophers needed as they went on to defeat Mich-
igan last night 93-82 in a game that was much closer than
the final score indicated.
Mikan's free throw, which came right after Dan Fife had
converted a similar situation for the Wolverines, put the
Gophers on top by one, 79-78, and seemed to break Michigan's

spirit as Minnesota ran their
lead up to 87-78 before the
Wolverines managed to score
,again.
Minnesota was aided in the
closing seconds by a traveling call
on Fife and fouls on Rudy Tom-
Janovich and Wayne Grabiec.
Though the Wolverines tried 'to
stage a comeback with quick
baskets by Tomjanovich and Gra-
biec, the Gopher lead was insur-
mountable.
The Gopher's had led through
much of the second half, but had
never been able to build up more
than a six point margin until the
end. Michigan was able to stay
close due to the shooting of Tom-
janovich, who hit for 19 in the
first period, and the propensity of
the Gophers to commit fouls.
Minnesota's high scorer, Ollie
Shannon, who finished with 32
points; had to spend time watch-
ing rather than scoring after pick-
ing up his fourth foul with over
ten minutes left.
Until the final fiasco the game
had stayed close. Minnesota led
in the opening minutes, but never
by more than a few points. The
Wolverines knotted the score with

The lead then changed hands
four times in the next seven min-
utes before Michigan pulled back
into the lead with six-and-one-
half minutes left on a jumper by
Bird Carter. The Wolverines went
off the court at halftime leading
41-39.
Minnesota tied it up as the sec-
ond half opened but Tomjanovich
hit on a long jump shot to regain
the lead which the Wolverines
managed to hold for about five
minutes. Then the Gophers knot-
ted the count once more on a tech-
nical foul shot.
Two more foul shots by Pyle put
the Gophers on top, where they
remained until Fife's three point
play.

IOWA CITY - Big Ten cham-
pion Iowa raced away from Ohio
State in the early minutes last
night, then turned on the steam
for a 113-92 basketball victory.

ranked Hawkeyes' point machine
with 37 points and a brilliant floor
game. Dave Sorensen was tops for
Ohio State with 34.

without a loss in the Big Ten and
closed the Hawkeye home season
amid shouts of "We're number
one." Iowa, which won its 15th
straight game, now is 18-4 for the
season.

2 minutes left and kept a safe mar-
gin on MSU until the buzzer.

3 Big Ten team, was the game's
ileading scorer. Michigan. State

Wildcats gnaw Badgers
MADISON-Northwestern's Dale
Kelley poured in 39 points and
directed the Wildcats to an 87-82
Big Ten basketball victory over
Wisconsin last night.
The loss shattered Wisconsin's
hopes of a .500 season for Coach
John Powless, whose Badgers slip-
ped to a 10-13 mark.
Kelley and teammate Jim Sarno
helped the Wildcats to a 40-33
halftime margin after Wisconsin
had held a temporary lead in the
early going.
Wisconsin fell behind as much
as 14 points in the second half,
but behind a surge sparked by

Clarence Sherrod and Al Henry,
battled back to within three points
with 19 seconds to go when Kelley
iced the game with two free
throws to make the score 85-80.
Sherrod paced the Badgers with
23 points.

MINNESOTA

By NORM SCHERR
When Michigan swimmers trav-
el to Bloomington and the Big Ten
Championship Finals later t h is!
week, they will bear with them a
rather unbecoming heritage.
For nearly a decade Michigan
has finished runner-up to power-
house Indiana. And the chances
for terminating this monotonous
tradition this year are, in the
words of Coach Gus Stager, "very
bleak."
Easily ranked number one na-
tionally and with a team depth
approaching a coach's wildest
fancy, Indiana will probably not
only dominate but permeate the
wining positions in the Finals. The
extent of Hoosier might was
painfully demonstrated to the
Wolverines earlier this season
when they were decimated in their
worst humiliation in recent time.
Perhaps with this in mind, Stag-
er comments on the Hoosier depth.
"Gary Hall and Mark Spitz are
unbeatable, and Larry Barbiere
has gotten better. There's a good
chance that Indiana will cap-
ture at least a first in every
event.
"THE EXCEPTIONS may de-
velop in the 50 and 100-yard free-
style, if they decide to use Spitz
elsewhere. In that case (Juan)
Bello should be able to take the
100 for us.
"They may even make a clean
sweep in the 1650-yard freestyle
and ,the backstroke events."
A possible exception to Indiana's
monopoly could occur in the
breaststroke events. Michigan's
Bill Mahoney or Michigan State's
Jeff Lanini might be able to knock
off the Hoosiers in this area.
Besides a formidible foe in Ind-
iana, Michigan will be expecting
a challenge from Michigan State
and 'Ohio State for the runner-up
spot. But Coach Stager t h i n k s
that Michigan depth will contain
the threat, as it did during t h e
dual meet season.
That leaves Michigan State and
Ohio State to fill out the third
and fourth positions, with MSU
a favorite for third. Minnesota or
Illinois should round out the re-
maining slots in the first division.*
Heading the list of Michigan
veterans department south a r e
N stalwarts Bello and Captain, Gary
Kinkead. The 100 and 200-yard
freestyle are Bello specialities,
while Kinkead will probably find
service in the 500-yard free, the
400-yard individual medley and
200-yard backstroke.

TIM NORLEN, Larry Day, Byr-

will represent the Wolverines in
the butterfly and individual med-
leys. Steve McCarthy and Greg
Goshorn will swim the backstroke
and Rich Dorney compete in the
distance events. Sprints will be
covered by Ray McCullough, and
Greg and Bob Zann.
Concerning the team's readiness,<
Stager says, "Two things to look
at to assess potential are times
and attitudes. In practice so far
this week, the times have been
slower than last week. But I think
this reflecPs a general worried
feeling in having to face such
tough opposition.
"It's hard to get up for a meet
knowing you're just about assured
of doing no better than second."
"I'M HOPING for an 'over-per-
formance' at the right time," said
Stager. "This seems to be a tradi-
tion of Michigan teams, but I
haven't seen it with this team so
far this year."
But not all of the Michigan
squad is resigned to second. "We've
got a doggone good chance to
catch a first," claimed diving
coach Dick Kimball. "Our con-
tingent is experienced and in good
shape, especially in required
dives."
Dick Rydze heads the diving
unit, and, together with Al Gag-
net, Bruce McManaman and Paul
McGuire should give Indiana a
battle on the one and three meter
boards. The competition will be
keen, since Big Ten divers usually
rank among the best in the na-
tion.
"Even if Indiana's Jim Henry
should place first, we have the
potential to score a team total as
least as high as theirs," said Kim
ball.
