THE MICHIGAN GAILY
Saturday, January 25, 1969 THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By DOUG HELLER
Associate Sports Editor
If the Michigan basketball team
doesn't have a good group of
freshmen next year, it won't be
the fault of the coaching staff.
Head coach John Orr and all.
three of his assistants were out
of t o w n recruiting yesterday
afternoon. As a result, the team
waited to practice in the evening
after Orr got back.
And all they have to do today is
play Michigan State. The visit to
East Lansing, televised at 2':10 on
the "Game of the Week," might
seem to be a battle between Mich-
igan's runners and gunners and
State's defense. But that isn't
For one thing, the Wolverine
defense is undergoing a drastic
change. "We're going with the
zone" says ,Orr, whose team has
tried a zone only sparingly this
season, while its man-to-man has1

points a game.'
The idea will be to keep State
center Lee Lafayette separated
from the ball. The Spartans, who
slumped with a five game losing
streak after a quick start, have
won two of their last three to
establish themselves as a confer-
ence title threat. The key to this
has been the sudden development
of sophomore guard Rudy Ben-
jamin and his ability to get the
ball to Lafayette in close.
Benjamin, who is only averaging
nine points a game on the year,
has come through with efforts of'
26 and 17 in his last two games,
while Lafayette, with an average
of less than 19 'a game, connected
for 33.in his last contest.
That last contest, incidentally,
Jim Gibbons (6-6)I
Bernie Copeland (6-6)j
Lee Lafayette (6-6)
Rudy Benjamin (6-3)
Harrison Stepter (6-3)
was an 89-75 trouncing of North-
western on the road, the same
team that blasted Michigan by 15
on Tuesday. According to Orr, it
makes MSU "the hottest team in
the Big Ten right now" despite its
6-6 record overall and 2-2 league
The other starters, Bernie Cope-:
land, Harrison Stepter and Jim
Gibbons, have been consistently at
or near -double figures. Copeland
had an injury which set the stage
for the losing streak as the Spar-
tans were unable to replace him.
With State's new-found scoring
punch coming at a time when the
Wolverines want to take off their
crash helmets after being bombed
their last three games, Michigan
expects all it can handle.
Orr traces his problems to the
Minnesota disaster when Richard
"Bird" Carter was ineligible for
one game, and "we haven't been
able to get started since."
According to Orr, Rudy Tom-
janovich has regressed to - the
point where "he isn't moving Well
without the ball, so we're having
trouble getting the ball into him.
"He also isn't going to the
boards as well. The action's get-
ting tougher inside and as our
only rebounder he hasn't been
able to get his tip-ins. He's been
very disappointed in himself."
To top it all off, Tomjanovich
has "lost his touch at the free
Meanwhile, Orr says "our run-
ning game has slowed down to
three-quarter speed and we hav-
en't been able to shoot and get
the rebound before the other team
Dennis Stewart, who almost al-
ways looks like a ball of fire the
first few minutes , of the game,
"just gets tired" according to the
coach. On the other hand, Bob
Sullivan, who has reclaimed his
old starting job "is finally starting
to play some basketball."
Orr doesn't know what to expect
from State in the way of defense
but John Bennington's disciplined
defenders should answer the ques-
tion as to whether the Wolverines
have regained their scoring touch.
The Wolverine coach does feel
his team can beat anyone else's
zone. He says his team whipped
three zone defenses before the
Ohio State game and when the
Buckeyes tried a zone, "it gave us:
trouble for a while but then we
were able to reduce their 18-point
lead to five." Northwestern played
Michigan using just a man-to-
Concerning the conference race,
neither Orrtnor his team are ready
to quit yet. The squad still is
having fun in practice despite its;
Orr says, "just because we've had
a slump doesn't mean the same
thing won't happen to Ohio State
or Purdue. You just watch us
against State. We're going to win,"

Special to The Daily
EAST LANSINDG-Th second
place Wolverine icers got a lesson
in hustle from sixth place Michi-
gan State as the fierce forecheck-
ing Spartans scored four goals in
the final period to skate away
with a 7-3 victory last night at
After getting loosened up in the
first two periods which saw the
two teams battle to a rugged 3-3
tie, the Spartans came out faster
than ever stunning the Wolverines
with three goals in the first six
minutes of the period.
The Spartans starting line of
Ken Anstey, Bill Watt and Randy
Sokoll skated tirelessly, accounting
for five goals, three in the final
period. Anstey and Watt each tal-
lied twice and Sokoll once while
leading the way for the Spartans
as they outshot the Wolverines
42-31 and handed them their
worst beating of the season.
Spartan wing Nelson DeBenedet
added the other two Spartan
Sophomore back-up goal tender
Bill Busch saw his first game ac-
tion at 16:07 of the third period
when ace goalie Jim Keough left
the game with a minor injury.
Sokoll scored on Busch on a per-
fectly executed three-on-one break
which the green netminder had no
chance to stop. The goal was no
more than score board dressing
for the inspired Spartans.
On what both coach Amo Bes-
sone of the Spartans and Wolver-
ine mentor Al Renfrew called the
turning point of the game, Spar-
tan wing Watt intercepted a pass
which hit the refereee, skated in
on the Michigan net at a sharp
angle, and flipped the puck into
the exposed corner on Keough's
Less than four minutes later,
DeBenedet blasted the puck over
Keough's stick glove taking a per-
feet pass from teammate Al Swan-
At the 5:52 mark of the same
period Watt put the game far out
of reach on an unassisted goal
that was almost identical to his
The Spartans opened the game
with a spirited forechecking game
and jumped off to a quick 2-0
lead. On goals by DeBenedet and
Dave Perrin, however, closed the
gau to 2-1, knocking down a shot
by Paul Domm and backhanding
it into the lower right hand corner
of the net past Spartan net-mind-
er Bob Johnson. The Wolverines
then came to life as Barney Pas-,
hak and Paul Gamsby scored just
eleven seconds apart to give the
Wolverines a 3-2 lead; their only
one of the night.
As the second period opened the
Wolverines missed few golden op-
portunities to break the game
open as sophomore Merle Falk
missed the wide-open net on two
As the period progressed, how-
ever, the Spartans took over with
their tenacious forechecking. From
the three minute mark of the sec-
ond period they kept the play in
the Michigan zone almost con-
tinuously until Lars Hansen was
thumbed off for high sticking at
11:11. The Spartans then executed
a perfect power play as Ken An-
stey slid the puck past Keough in
a goal mouth scramble.
Only Keough's spectacular play
kept the Spartans off the score
sheet for the first minute and a
half of the penalty. After the ty-
ing MSU tally, play leveled off
for the remainder of the period
as the checking got exceedingy
close and neither had many good
shots on the opposition net.

DETROIT OP)-A driving layup
by Eddie Miles with seven seconds
to go gave the Detroit Pistons a
107-106 National Basketball As-
sociation victory over the New
York Knicks .last night.
Miles' winning shot came after
New York had gone ahead on a
basket by Don May with 1:06 left
and had kept Detroit scoreless for
almost 21/ minutes.
The Pistons, after leading 54-
51 at halftime, built up a seven-
point lead early in the third quar-
ter before New York ran up
straight points and went on to
gain a 75-67 lead as Dick Barnett
led the way with 10 points and
Walt Frazier had nine in the
Detroit then came back to trail
82-81 after three quarters, and,
after a see-saw fourth, period in
which at one time New York led
by as many as six points, the Pis-
tons finally pulled it out in their'
third straight one-point finish.
They have won two of the three.
Walt .Bellamy led Detroit with
* 28 points while Dave Bing had 22
and Miles 20. Barnett scored 34
for the Knicks.

ATLANTA (0) - Zelmo Beaty
shot over, around and under Wilt
Chamberlain for 36 points last
night and led the Atlanta Hawks
to a 110-106 National Basketball
Association victory over Los An-
The victory moved Atlanta to
within one game of the Western
Division-leading Lakers. The tri-
umph also was the Hawks' 20th
in their last 23 games.
Beaty hit his top point total of
the season and teamed with
guards Walt Hazzard and Don Ohl
to give the Hawks enough cushion
to withstand a late Los Angeles
Hazzard and Ohl combined for
22 straight points to wipe out a
nine-point Laker margin in the
second period and give the Hawks
a lead they never lost.
Los Angeles used 16 final period
points by Elgin Baylor to pull to
within two points with two min-
utes remaining. But Beaty hit six,
straight points to clinch the
Hazzard finished with 30 points.
Baylor topped Los Angeles with 34
and Jerry West added 28.
BOSTON (M)-The Philadelphia
76ers built a commanding lead;
shook off several challenges and
then rode the fourth-period shoot-
ing of Chet Walker and Darrell
Imhoff to a 120-111 National Bas-
-ketball Association victory over
the Boston Celtics last night.
The Celtics, who trailed 61-54
at halftime,closed to within 87-84
at the three-quarter mark. How-
ever, Walker and Imhoff took
charge. Walker scored 12 of his
20 points in the final 12 minutes,
while Imhoff hit for nine, finish-
ing with 14.
Bill Cunningham topped the
76ers with 27 points. Wally Jones
matched Walker's 20 points.
Bailey Howell and John Havli-
cek scored 26 and 19 points re-
spectively, for Boston which lost
its third straight.
