of the remainder of the game, in-
cluding all of the second half.
"We weren't reacting in the
zone today," commented Orr, "so
we switched to the man to man."
We decided to try to force the
game more and put more pressure
on their guards."
The move worked out well as the
Badgers had trouble getting the
ball to Johnson in the second half
as Mark Henry and Ken Maxey
continually harassed the Wiscon-
sin backcourt. The two also com-
bined for 17 second half points,
many coming on plays that their
pressure defense started.
"Maxey got hot in the second
half and helped us and Henry just
did a real fine job," were Orr' s
thoughts on the guards' perform-
ances. Their second half play,
along with Stewart's 21 and Tom-
j anovich's 19 points enabled the
Wolverines to hold a safe lead to

DENNIS STEWART of Michigan attempts a reverse layup as Al Henry (54) and Tom Mitchell
look on. Stewart, playing in his final home contest, scored 21 points and was an important factor
in the Wolverine victory. Michigan played an uneven game in their home finals, but maintained
enough consistency to defeat the visiting Badgers by the score of 84 to 79.
