Michigan Head Coach Johnny
By ELLIOT LEGOW
Michigan's freshman basketball
team chalked up its third straight
victory of the season last night
with a convincing 112-86 win over
Bowling Green in a prelude to the
The Baby Blue dominated the
game with its speed and shooting
ability after a slow start in which
turnovers hampered both teams.
With the score knotted at 27-27,4
after twelve and a half minutes of
play, the Wolverines started a five
minute string in which they out-
scored the Falcons 12-4.
Leon Roberts and John Lockard
led the Wolverines in that span,
Lockard clearing the boards and:
hitting on inside shots and Rob-
Lrts playing aggressive, defense
and hitting on outside shots. Rob-
crts connected on one long jumper
of almost thirty feet.
IN THE SECOND half, Bowling
Green played less aggressively oil
defense in an attempt to reduce
their fouling. Michigan took full'
advantage of this change as they
threated their way down the court
with successful fast breaks and
reeled off 13 consecutive points to
grab a 64-45 lead.
After Michigan pulled to a 23
>oint lead, 72-49, the Falcons re-
verted to a tight defense. As a re-
sult Bowling Green again started
fouling. The Wolverines who only
cashed in on 13 of 28 free throw
attempts in the first half, con-
verted nine of their first eleven
charity tosses in the second half.
With five minutes remaining
and the Wolverines leading 106-75,
Coach George Pomey pulled his
last starters. All thirteen Michigan
players saw action and ten on
them scored. Johnson led with 28
points, followed by guard Henry
Wilmore who added 21. John Lock-
and and Leon Roberts, Michigan's
two forwards, chipped in with 16
and 13 respectively.

"We didn't want to play their style of game,"
said Michigan coach Johnny Orr.
"They made, us play their game," said Mar-
quette mentor Al McGuire.
And that about sums the Wolverines hard-
fought 86-78 victory over the Warriors last night.
Michigan held onto the lead throughout the
second half, taking away Marquette's deliber-
ate game and forcing them into 19 turnovers.
Michigan coach Johnny Orr did a commend-
able job of coaching and competed with the vola-
tile Marquette mentor, Al McGuire for showman
honors. The coaches roamed the court as if they
were back in their playing days, and the fans
The fans divided their time between cheering
on the maize and blue and booing the refs. Al-
though both coaches said afterwards that they
had no special gripes with the officials, they cer-
tainly didn't show it on the court.
AFTER THE GAME, Orr explained that "Mc-
Guire has a habit of intimidating the refs and
I didn't want him to do that. He does that a lot."
McGuire paid a return trip to midcourt after
Cobb fouled out late in the game, and the
fans gave him a thorough booing.
The fans were not so much after McGuire as
they were reserve forward Hugh McMahon. Mc-
Mahon played much of the game after Gary Brell
fouled out late in the first half and guarded
Rudy extremely tightly, and Wolverine rooters
thought it was too tight. One fan remarked that
McMahon should have been arrested for molest-
McGuire is notorious for trying to put a psyche
on his opponents, but his attempts were futile.
The Warriors played a man-to-man defense un-
til there were nine minutes left in the first half.
Then they switched into a 1-3-1 zone.
The temporarily baffled Wolverines called time
out to adjust to the change, and when play re-
sumed, Marquette reverted to the man-to-man.
They switched to a 1-2-2 a minute later, but
quickly went back to the man to -man and stayed
with it the rest of the game.
Rudy was not phased by McMahon's efforts, as
he poured in a game-high 32 points, 22 of them
in the first half. Orr was generous in his praise
of the senior forward, especially his passing.
BUT ORR reserved his greatest praise for the
whole team. "That was quite a game," he com-
mented. "It was a big win for us this early in the
year, especially coming on only one day off after
those two tough losses (to Notre Dame and
Davidson). This is a great little team,
"We didn't run as much as we would have liked,
and they made some great plays to slow our
break. This is not a big team, but they play to-
gether well. We're even surprising ourselves."
McGuire was subdued after the game, a con-
trast to his earlier mood. He praised both the
varsity and freshman teams. "They're a g o o d
team," he said, "and they should win the Big
Ten title. They look to be a real power in the

AmerIca's new small cars
won't talk about.
Nova talks about things
those new little cars prefer not to mention.
For instance, (1) a cargo-guard luggage compartment; (2) an extra
'set of fenders inside the fenders; (3) flush and dry rocker panels that help
'prevent rust and corrosion; (4) a quality built Body by Fisher; (5) Magic-Mirror acrylic'
lacquer finish; (6) a firm, steady ride programmed by computer-selected springs;
(7) six different engines and five transmissions available; (8) an available lighting group that
even includes a monitor for your windshield washer fluid; (9) radios you can order,
with antennas built right into the windshield and (10) the availability of a new, more compact
radio/stereo tape system. America's little cars don't offer them. Nova does.
Nova also has a very appealing price. And a lot of loyal friends.,
