By KEITH WOOD
Michigan's 94-67 loss to Minne-
sota Saturday night could be a
very costly one. As head coach
John Orr puts it, "We will not
play an easier team on the road;
this season."
Road games are probably the
number one evil as far as basket-
ball is concerned. At Minnesota
the Wolverines entered Williams
Arena like the Christians entering
the Coliseum. All the advantages
were on the side of the Gophers.
In the first place, the arena it-
self has to be one of the most
poorly lighted facilities in Big Ten
basketball. A team that is not
used to this condition, will have
considerable trouble in adjusting.
Secondly, the Gophers had 6,000
sadistic fans screaming for blood.
An enthusiastic crowd is not es-
sential for a victory, but it sure
does not do any harm.
Thirdly, it seems that the refe-
rees are generally more sympathe-
tic toward the home team. It is
not that they are entirely unfair,
but it seems that the visiting team
is more often than not a victim of
home-cooking.
One cannot offer these factors
as excuses for Michigan's humilia-
tion Saturday night. The Wolver-
ines have not exactly been improv-
ing since they entered conference
play. They sweated out two over-
time victories on their home court.
Their 50 per cent shooting from
the field has been decreasing
steadily. At Minnesota they shot a
disastrous 29 per cent. Dennis
Stewart and Dan Fife, who were

The Wolverines, though, do
have the potential to win and win
big. They are a fast team and
generally play a better game when
they run. Minnesota coach Bill
Fitch commented, "When Mich-
igan starts running, they are dan-
gerous. They came out slow, like
most visiting teams. They started
running when we were ahead 8-2,
so Igcalled a time-out. When
Michigan starts running a six
point lead means nothing."
Michigan must also improve its
defense. Even though they were
the second highest scoring team
in college basketball before Sat-
urday night, they have given up
an average of 89 points to the
opposing team.
Saturday night the Wolverine
defense was almost non-existent,
Time after time the Gophers were
able to gain an open shotfrom the
k y. Marry times they just drove
through the open middle.
Michigan was also beaten on
the boards Saturday night. Coach.
Fitch admitted that he didn't
think that the Gophers could out-
rebound the muscular Wolverines,
but they did. Most of the time it
was Rudy Tomjanovich against
three Gophers under the defensive
boards. And Tomjanovich just
cannot handle three men over 6'-
6" by himself.
On the offensive boards, Mich-
igan is guilty of not following
their shots. Usually it is Tomjan-
ovich who follows everybody's
shots. Against Minnesota, the
three big men were able to clog
up the middle to hamper Rudy's
flying tip-ins.
