Michigan's basketball team last

A stellar performance by Lee
Lafayette led Michigan State to
an 86-70 victory in the second
f game of the doubleheader at
Jenison Field House. Lafayette led
the Spartans with 29 points and
six rebounds. It was MSU's game
all the way.
The Wolverines had a 38-37
lead with 1:35 left in the half
when close defensive play present-
ed Michigan with three consecutive
breakaways, but Michigan botched
them all and the Rockets con-
verted all three Into easy baskets
to take the lead for good.
Actually, the Wolverines repeat-
edly missed easy shots in the first
half and also committed 15 turn-
overs, but close defensive play
kept them in the game for most
of the half.
Michigan coach John Orr is not
about to take anything away from
Toledo, but he shudders at the
mention of "missed shots."
Still, the Rockets were able to
shoot 61 per cent in the first half
and 54 per cent for the game.
Wolverine assistant coach Fred
Snowden said, "Toledo had a much
better game than we had anti-
cipated. This is not the same team
that we scouted."
Orr added, "Rudy Tomjanovich
did a great job to stop their star
center (Steve Mix, who scored 12
points). But the rest of them were
able to get in for too many easy
shots. We had a lot of trouble with
Only Ken Maxey, the Wolver-
ines' erstwhile invalid, was able to
put the clamps on Rudley and got
the Rockets' star in foul trouble.
Maxey,, who came' in midway
through the first half, drew the
praise of Orr.
The coach said, "His timing was
off and he threw the ball away
a lot, but he showed a lot of
hustle. You couldn't expect 'much
more from somebody who hasn't
played for two weeks."
