LAFAYETTE - Purdue didn't
really have to play last night,
since the Boilermakers have al-
ready clinched the Big Ten bas-
ketball championship. Michigan
should have taken advantage oft
the situation and offered to have
the game cancelled. Instead, the
Wolverines showed aup and took
their worst beating of the year,
falling ignominiously, 116-87.
Purdue was led, as usual, by
All-American guard Rick Mount,
who poured in 45 points on a va-
riety of jump shots, drives, and
fast break lay-ups.

tentions early, as they jumped into:

Purdue opened up a ten point leadI
with only seven minutes gone, the
issue was never in doubt.
By halftime Mount had 20
points and Purdue was up by a
16 point margin. Mount was joined
in the first half by sophomore for-
ward George Faerber who poured

The Boilermakers were helped,
though, by one of Michigan's
worst performances of the season.
The Wolverines hit only 37 per
cent for the game and committed
19 turnovers. Orr admitted, "After
the first Minnesota game, that
was our worst job of the year."
He continued, "We just never
could get going."
The Wolverines tried every pos-
sible combination to get back in
the contest in the second half,
but none of the Michigan sub-
stitutes could provide an effective
spark. Even Rudy Tomjanovich,
who finished with 26 points and
15 rebounds. had a poor game.

TENANTS TAX CREDIT
Michigan law entitles tenants to claim 20% of their rent as
credit against state income tax. If you do not claim this credit,
your landlord may subtract this 20% of your rent from his tax
bill, but by law he is not entitled to that credit. Do not pay your
