Special to The Daily
By BILL CUSUMANO
EVANSTON-Michigan fell to
its third straight defeat last nightI
as the Northwestern Wildcats
blew open a tight game early in
the second half and rolled to a
100-85 victory.
Junior Mike' Reeves came off the
Northwestern bench with five
minutes gone in the second half
and led a four minute charge in;
which the Wildcats outscored the
Wolverines 17-4 to gain a lead
which they never relinquished.
Reeves was helped by Dale Kelley
and Don Adams as the Wildcatsk
suddenly became arousedand com-
pletely took the play-away from
Michigan.,
The key play in the game wasr
a technical foul called on North-
western's captain Terry Gamber
with 14:50 left in the second1
stanza. Bob Sullivan hit the tech-
nical after Ken Maxey cashed inl
the regular 'free 'throw and the
Wolverines suddenly led by a 56-5 1
score and had possession of theb
ball.
The Wolverines committed af
backcourt violation on the ensuing
throw-in, however, and an arousedI

Northwestern crowd cried for
blood. Apparently the Wildcat
players felt the same way as they
began to relentlessly score.
Adams put Northwestern ahead
with a jumper and then Reeves
rammed home two straight buck-
ets to bring the count to 62-57.
Kelley then hit for four points,
Reeves got two more and Michigan
begantomsee its third Big Ten
loss become more distinct.
"They took the momentum
from us with the technical,"
Michigan Coach Johnny Orr com-
mented after the game. "They got
fired up and we didn't."
Strangely, Northwestern mentor
Larry Glass didn't quite agree.
"I sure didn't get fired up," was
his remark. However his players,
especially Reeves, gave ,signs that
they did.
Reeves had not played much
this year and was only inserted
because Glass felt, "Gamber was
losing his poise and I wanted to
cool him off."
The substitute responded with
a key nine point three rebound
effort and left Michigan wishing
he'd stayed on the bench.
Gamber later returned with five

MONTREAL (P) - Claude La-
Rose's goal with less than three
minutes to play earned the Na-
tional Hockey League's West Di-
vision All-Stars a 3-3 tie with the
East Division Stars in the 22nd
renewal of the annual classic last
night.
j The tie represented a moral vic-
tory for the 2-year-old expansion
West Division, which led through
most of the game against the-
power-laden East squad.
The West fell behind in the fi-
nal period when Detroit's Frank
Mahovlich scored his second goal
of the game and Bob Nevin of
New York converted a rebound
four minutes later.

OVERCOMES INCONSISTANCY:
Meaden Springs to new

By ,CINDY LEATHERMAN
Jay Meaden's diving career has
been sort of a cyclic thing.
As a sophomore at Michigan he
had an outstanding season and
was second in the Big Ten. Fore-
cast as a comer in the sport,
Meaden's second season on the
varsity squad was nothing short of
disappointing.
One week ago, Meaden showed
everyone at the Indiana meet that
his career is rolling around to the
top again this year. Scoring 332.90
points in the three-meter event,
Meaden outcjassed runner-up Win
Young, an Olympic medalist, by'
nearly' 40 points.
"I had beaten Young twice as a
sophomore," Meaden commented,
"and after last year's season, I
was anxious to meet him again. It
really was great."
Meaden has been diving since
his sophomore year at Hinsdale
high school in Illinois. Under
coach John Narcy (who is! the
present diving coach at Michigan
State); Meaden became an All-
* American his last two years as
well as the State Champ his senior
year. While at Michigan, he has
earned All-American three times.
So much for history. Meaden
has very definite attitudes, con-
cerning his specialty.
"Diving is fun-really great," he
explained. "And the people asso-
ciated with the sport are fun; I've
found it very worthwhile being
with these people.
"But more importantly, diving
helps you to get to know yourself
better as( well as serving as a
diversion from school.
"They're two different worlds--
academics and sports - and each
one works as sort of a stopgap to
the other. It keeps you sane."
Meaden is the first to admit
that he's had excellent coaching
"right from the start. Dick Kim-
ball (Michigan's diving coach) is
fantastic," he explained. "He's
really made diving a pleasure.
He's extremely demanding, but for
every hour you put in, diving, he
puts in an hour coaching. You

not great, and I don't feel, to my Carter
capabilities, but much better." Edrds
Outside of the pool, Meaden is Bloodworth
an engineering student and will Ford
graduate next December. He has Fraunan
"absolutely no idea" as to pnst-
graduateplans. "I might eventu-F
ally go into coaching, but only as
a sideline - and that's very in-
definite." Adams
But there's nothing indefinite Davis
about this swimming season in Kelley
M'eaden's mind. "Prospects for this Gumber
year are nothing but good. The Burke
Indiana meet indicated the depth Cradan
we have." Reeves
Indiana's a good team to get an Bradof
indication from. For the past eight Preston
years, Doc Counsilman and his uJerdan
tankers have reigned over the Big
Ten as the proverbial champions
and Michigan's number one foe.
The 1966 season was the last
time Michigan was victorious over
Indiana in a dual meet. But this
might be the year to upset that
precedent.
As Meaden pointed out. "For
the past two years, our freshman
team has beaten Indiana's fresh-,
men at the Big Ten meets. We
have a great deal of strength, as
well as individual standouts."
No one can deny the fact that
Meaden's performance against In-
diana was anything short of out-
standing. Any diving score over
300 is excellent) Now, Meaden's
only desire is to be consistent-es-
pecially when Michigan meets In-
diana at Bloomington Feb. 15.
* "I think this year we're capable
of beating them in their own
pool," he said. "And I can't think
of anything more appetizing.
"They have the power-almost
half their team are Olympians-
but we have the strength too .
and more importantly, the desire."

Meaden continued/in his praise.
"It gets to the point where you
say I'm going to do this for Dick.'
Here's someone who's shown con-
fidence in you and helped you out
in any way, besides diving."
Meaden is becoming a tribute to
this coaching. The long hours' of
practice are certainly paying off.
"Diving is a very intricate sport-
the variables that go into each:
dive, frombthe physical mechanics
to the circumstances and even the
condition of the pool can throw
a dive off.
"In practice," he continued,
"it's a thinking process, and by
the time you perform in a meet,
it's become a trained reaction."

Meaden feels this is perhaps the
most adverse condition in any

explanation to his success last
