Michigan's cagers put on an iron m a n
performance last night and upset tenth
ranked Illinois, 92-87, with an inspired last
minute comeback.
"It was just sheer guts," said over-
joyed assistant coach Fred Snowden after
the contest. It had to be, as the starting five

Stewart's follow came after Ken Maxey

Michigan was still not safely home,

Rueckeye''Is .upset Purdue
to close gap in title race

By The Associated Press'
COLUMBUS, Ohio-Ohio State,
triggered by Jody Finney's 28
points, muscled its way back into
the Big Ten title chase last night
with an 88-85 basketball victory
over eighth-ranked Purdue.
It was the first league setback,
for the Boilermakers after six
triumphs and boosted the Buck-,
eyes to a 5-2 mark, only one game
back of the frontrunners.
Ohio had to survive a blazing,
Purdue finish and a 35-point per-
formance by Rick Mount to escape
with the decision.
The Boilermakers, trailing most
of the second half by 10 points,
rallied for a 76-76 tie with 3:27
left in the game But Finney,
matching his career' high for
points, sank a long set shot that
put the Bucks on top for good.
Dave Sorenson put the game'
out of reach moments later {vhen
he registered a three-point play.
The Buckeye center finished with
24 points while teammate Jim,
Cleamons chipped in with 21.

the keyhole area.
Michigan stayed right w i t h
Illinois, though, as the Wolverines
hit the nets at 4 53.6 rate. Much
of the Michigan accuracy came
from a torrid fast break that pro-
duced many easy buckets. Coach
Johnny Orr was elated, saying,
"We capitalized on the break real
well in the first half."
The rea n for the effectiveness
of the bre~k has to be =attributed
to excellent passing bythe Wol-
verines, especially Sullivan. Orr
admitted that, "we passed better
than at any time this year." He
also had praise for Sullivan say-
'ing, "He has been playing very
well."I
Saying that Sullivan played
well was an understatement for
his performance last night.
Though he scored only nine points;
and had but two in the first half,t
his numerous assists set up his
teammates. In the first half alone
he had eight passes that c o u1 d
have been regarded as assists, in-
eluding one fantastic touch pass
to Fife on the fast break.
Stewart joined Sullivan in put-
ting on an all around performance
by hitting for 17 points, grabbing
10 rebounds and also snapping off
some fine passes. Pro scouts Fred
Schaus of the Los Angeles Lak-
ers and Bob Ferry of the Balti-
more Bullets were on hand to see
the two seniors and in the words
of Snowden, "They got to see an
awful lot."
Sullivan and Stewart were join-

37 points while hitting .18 of 26
field goal attempts, most of them
long range jumpers.
However, despite their fine play,
the Wolverines were never able toj
break the game open. They got
the big center, Jackson, to leave
the game with 15 minutes remain-
ing when he picked up his fourth
foul and then Michigan moved
:>ut to a 10 point lead.
It was there that they Illini
showed 1 why they had only lost
two games before last night. Led
by guard Jodie Harison Illinois
ran off ten straight points to knot
the game up once more. They
switched to a zone defense to cool
Michigan off and then broughtI

maining.

game of the season. Illinois coachI
Harv Schmidt had nothing b u t,
praise for Michigan. "They play-

I don't have much to say."
There really wasn't much that
Schmidt could say as he knew his
team was almost knocked out of
the Big Ten race. "This could
have been an opportunity to gain
ground," he muttered.
It could have been a great op-;
portunity, but a Michigan team
