With such a situation it would
seem a miracle that the Wolver-
ines did pull out a win, but they
were aided by a Minnesota team
that looked just as flat and play-
ed just as poorly.
Gophers showed very little
movement on offense, poor re-
bounding, and inaccurate f o u 1
shooting. Their only effective wea-
pon was guard Al Nuness who

Minnesota in the game.
Nuness was particularly tough
in the first half when he hit for
15 markers and even put the
Gophers into a 27-22 lead at one
point. The Wolverines then began
to apply their p r e s s more
thoroughly and used superior
board strength to forge a 42-40
halftime edge.
Michigan's first half comeback
was led by Rudy Tomjanovich,
who popped in eight points, and
Dan Fife, who added four more.

a 1-1 tie but totally dominated
the ice.
Inspiredby the tremendous vic-
tory of the night before and the
resounding cheers of the clamor-
ous crowd, Michigan bombarded
the Nodak net and scored four
times before the Sioux even saw
the puck.
Adding to the excitement was
flashy Dave Perrin who brilliantly
stickhandled his way past the
stunned North Dakota defense
and contributed a hat-trick
toward the Michigan effort.
Contributing greatly to the
icer's success was the superb play
of Randy Binnie, Doug Glendin-
ning. and Don Deeks. While Glen-
dinning scored once in each game,
Binnie and Deeks backed up their
teammate with a goal apiece.
At Monday's practice Renfrew
praised the Binnie line and stated
emphatically, "Probably the best
defensive line is Binnie's and now
that they are scoring, they're do-
ing everything."
Binnie noted that their line

were really starting to click.
When discusing the improved
play of what he calls the "Scooter
ILine," Binnie said, "We're play-
ing a little more conservatively.
We don't skate in as fast, and we
leave one man ten or fifteen feet
out." Putting the description in
simpler terms Binnie declared,
"We know where the other man
is'"'
Combined with determined play
of the three Michigan lines, Jim
Keough came through with a
sterling performance in the Mich-
igan nets. By turning away t h e
sizzling Nodak shots, Kough pro-
vided the spark which inspired the
rest of the team.
