Indiana

By HOWARD KOHN
Special To The Daily
BLOOMINGTON, ' Id. - Cazzie
Russell swished a practice-perfect-
ed hoof shot with 20 seconds
gone in the first half to clinch the
win for Michigan yesterday.
The defending Big Ten champs
toyed with Indiana's downtrodden
Hoosiers for about 30 minutes be-
fore stampeding to their sixth
conference victory of the year, 93-
76. The Wolverines moved in front
early in the game and led most of
the way by a comfortable ten-
point margin.
Tight Race
The Big Ten race, however, re-
mained tighter than a Boy Scout
knot. John Benington's Spartans
are mathematically even with
Michigan at 6-1, and Illinois is
one half game back at 5-1.
There was little question about
the outcome of the game in
Bloomington. "Our boys were
simply too small, to contend with
Michigan," sighed a resigned Lou
Watson, coach of the Hoosiers.
."We'll pever have to play against'
Russell and Darden again, thank
goodness," added Watson, with the
look of a man boarding a boat for
the states after three years in
Viet Nam.'
Watson, who was assistant coach
when the Van Arsdale twins and
Co. let a win over Dave Strack's
"bad guys" slip from their red-
hot grasp here last season, watched
his outclassed team take their
second licking of the year from
Michigan.
Indiana, depleted by graduation,
was only a semblance of the -team
that played the cloak-and-dagger
drama at the I. U. Fieldhouse in
1965. Max Walker, one of the
smallest forwards in the confer-
ence at 6'1", was a one-man gang
trying to contend with the re-
bounding of Jim Myers and Ollie
Darden and the shooting of Cazzie
and John Clawson.
90-33; 12 FIRSTS:

Walker pulled seven off the
backboards and pumped 24 through
the orange hoop for team honors
in both categories. But, except for
an occasional basket from his
teammates, there was little to
rouse the rabid Hoosier fans who
had come to see (with a lingering,
desperate hope) long-sought ven-
geance.
Vernacular Fans
"Damn, they've been number
one for three years," complained
one rather bitter Bloomington
resident after witnessing the de-
bacle.
Both coaches, however, played
down the rematch angle. "I was
not even thinking about last year,"
Strack happily reflected. "We're
worried about every game we
play."
Watson's only comment was,
"They still had Russell."
Snazzy, Jazzy, Cazzie
"Snazzy" Cazzie, as he is known
to, the sporting world across the
country, was at his usual team-
leading best with 32 points, push-
ing him over the 500-point mark
in season totals. Strack used Rus-
sell at forward against Walker
for most of the game.
"He's a lot bigger than Walker,
and it looked to me like an easy
way to score," explained the Wol-
verine mentor.
And that's the way it looked to
every one else.
The one-man myth, however,
was pushed into the background
by hardworking Clawson who
switched to the backcourt to take
Russell's slot. The 6'4" senior
clicked for 19 important points in
the second half with his nifty
jumper and finished second to the
Caz with 22 overall. Myers con-
tributed 14 and Darden put in
11 as four of the Michigan starters
hit the twin digit bracket.
Rebounding Edge
All this, plus an uncompromis-
ing height advantage which netted
a 59-39 rebounding edge for the.

Wolverines, kept the high school
size Hoosiers looking plain frus-
trated.
"I feel that Michigan's domina-
tion of the boards was probably
the big difference in the game,"
theorized Watson. "Every time I
looked, it seemed that they were
right there for the ball."
Or perhaps it was just that In-
diana didn't have anybody tall
enough to be there where the game
script is acted out in short violent
scenes.
The two Hoosiers, who shared
the high post assignment-Jack
Johnson and Frank Everett-
combined for a meager total of
seven rebounds. Forward Harry
Joyner grabbed six but his flying
elbows sent him to an early shower
via the foul route.
Blue Lead Early
Michigan played near storybook
form for the first ten minutes,
zipping off to a commanding 30-
12 lead. Bullet precision passes and
some impressive shooting from
underneath had the Hoosiers
floundering before they knew they
were in the water.
Michigan walked off with a 43-
30 edge at intermission after an
even duel the rest of the half, but
Vern Payne caused a greater re-
action from the crowd when he
limped off two minutes before the
buzzer.
Turns Ankle
Payne, the 5'10" guard who was
high for Indiana at Yost Field-
house in January, had been show-
ing off his deadly archer from 25
feet when he left. '
Payne didn't start the second
half and managed only four more
in the eight minutes he did play.
Ironically enough, Payne's ab-
sence spurred Indiana to its most
potent attack of the day. Watson
plugged in junior Erv Inniger with
a 3.3 ppg average and ordered a
full court press, and the Hoosiers!
responded with 23 quick points to
creep within five at 58-53.

Second Half MSU Splurge Keeps Big Tein Race Even
Illini Stay Close, Edge Bucks 78-7 7 in Final Seconds

By The Associated Press
EAST LANSING-A second-halfI
rally by Michigan State, led by
Bill Curtis and John Bailey, kept
the Spartans in a tie for first,
place in the Big Ten with a 79-65
victory over Wisconsin yesterday.
The teams battled on even terms
for the first 28 minutes but a six-
point splurge by Michigan State
after starting forward Stan Wash-
ington had fouled out set the
Spartans on their way.
Jump shots by Curtis and lay-
ups by the speedy Bailey con-
tinually were matched against any
Wisconsin comeback efforts. The
Badgers several times cut the
lead tonine or less .late in the
game but each time the Spartan
duo recharged the lead with their
accurate aiming.
Forced to foul, Wisconsin found
this an equally useless strategem
as the Spartans were deadly in
bonus situations from the line.
Their overall free throw mark
was 19 of 25.
The score was tied six times in
the first half, and the lead ex-
changed hands four other times
before MSU grabbed a 31-29 half-
time lead.
Curtis scored 27 points, 17 of
them in the final 20 minutes.
Bailey added 19, with 16 of them
in the second half.
The Badgers were led by Mark

Zubor, who had 16 points. Ken
Gustafson added 13.
illini Beat OSU
CHAMPAIGN, II.-Bob Johan-
sen's two free throws with 14
seconds left gave Illinois a 78-77
Big Ten basketball victory over
Ohio State yesterday.
The triumph left the Illini with
a 5-1 conference record, still in
hot contention for the league title.
Johansen's two charity tosses
made it 78-75. Ron Sepic of Ohio
State plunked in two free throws
with six seconds left, but the
Buckeyes were unable to get in
another shot.
Ohio State led most of the game.
Shortly after the second half be-
gan, the Buckeyes got their big-
gest lead, 42-31.
Illinois caught up with 10 min-
utes to go, matching the score at
53-all. The Buckeyes held the
lead momentarily twice after that,
but the Illini then moved ahead
several times as a see-saw struggle
began.
With six minutes left, Don Free-
man's basket put Illinois ahead to
stay 65-63.
The Illini were paced by sopho-
more Rich Jones, who scored 27
points, while Freeman contributed
21.
Ohio State's leader was Bob
Dove with 22 points,20ofathem
in the first half. Dove was in foul
trouble and missed much of the
second half, finally fouling out

with 10 minutes left.'

Minnesota Wiis
MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota
broke the grip of Purdue's de-
liberate game midway through the
second half and streaked to a 66-
61 Big Ten basketball victory
last night.
The Gophers, remaining in con-
tention in the Big Ten race with
a 5-2 record, held only a 43-40
lead with 11 minutes to go in a
game which for three quarters of
the way resembled cage play of
two decades ago.
But Minnesota finally was able
to run against the Boilermaker
slowdown and opened a 13-point

lead at 66-53 with 1:15 remain-
ing.
Despite Purdue's slow moving
attack, Dave Schellhase, the na-
tion's top major college scorer
with a 31.8 average going into
the game, managed 27 points.
Dennis Dvoracek led Minnesota
with 16 points, while Archie Clark
added 15, Lou Hudson 12 and
Wes Martins 11.
Purdue, suffering its fifth de-
feat in six Big Ten games, once
trailed 19-9 in the first half but
rallied to shave the margin to
31-27 at the half.
Purdue came within two several
times early in the second half
but never could draw even.

CAZZIE

Inniger emulated the Payne
jump for six tallies, as ominous
reminders of the Illinois-patented
coup flashed on the scoreboard.
But the Hoosiers slacked off
on the press, which had been rat-
tling Michigan, and the scare was
over. The Wolverine sharpshooters
roared back to a 15-point bulge
and the rest was anti-climatic.
Boy Wonders
Strack substituted freely in the
final minutes with players like
Marc Delzer and Van Tillotson,
who play only when the outcome
is as certain as Batman's esca-
pades.
Strack had started subbing way
back in the first half, with only
seven minutes done, putting in
Craig Dill, Dan Brown, Dennis
Bankey and Jim Pitts. He denied,
however, that he had discounted
Indiana's chances. "I felt that we
weren't hurting ourselves by put-
ting in these boys. Pitts, for in-
stance, is healthy again and has
been playing well in practice.
"I certainly wasn't being liberal.
I'm not a liberal coach . . . my
stomach hurts too much," added
Strack."Although I will say that
in the last five minutes, it looked
like we had things under control."
or as one philosophical specta-
tor put it, "Indiana didn't have
much . . . only girl cheerleaders."

Swimmers Trounce Gophers

Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - An abbrevi-
ated Wolverine swimming team
had no trouble in disposing with
Minnesota here yesterday by a
score of 90-33 for its 13th con-
secutive dual meet victory.
The win was accomplished by
a squad of only 13 swimmers and
divers, who arrived in town with
BOB HOAG
very little time to loosen up be-
fore the meet.
Michigan took first place in 12
of the 13 events, adding seven
seconds. Distance freestyler Bill
Farley and diver Bruce Brown
each scored double individual
wins in the one-sided affair.
Farley wo the 500- andst1000-
yard freestyles followed by Tom
tailn in Walls in the shorter,
whiles Brown handily put away
both the high and low board div-
ing events. Bob Wamisley adde
and a second at three meters:,

Diving Coach Dick Kimball com-
mented after the meet that
Brown's totals of 270 and 288, al-
though lower than some of his
performances this season, were
indicative of "very good diving."
He pointed out that Brown had
only time for five practice dives
before the first event and three
before his second, and adapting
to a strange board can be diffi-
cult.
Sprinter Bill Groft won his spe-
cialty, the 50-yard flash, and in
addition anchored the freestyle re-
lay team following John Salassa,
Ken Wiebeck, and Bob Hoag. Wie-
beck also won the 100-yard sprint,
beating out Groft who added the
second. In the 50, it was Wie-
beck who added the second place

The other two members of the
relay team, Hoag and Salassa,
finished first and second, respec-
tively, in the 200-yard freestyle.
Opening the meet, Russ King-
ery, Paul Scheerer, Tom O'Malley
and Walls combined for a win in
the 400-yard medley relay. King-
ery later set the pace in the 200-
yard backstroke with a 2:02.1,
while Williams picked up the third.
Scheerer notched another first in
the 200-yard breaststroke with-
out any competition worth men-
tioning.
Vry Wins Medley
John Vry took Michigan's re-
maining first in the 200-yard in-
dividual medley, and again Wil-
liams picked up a third place.
The Gophers only victory came
in the 200-yard butterfly, in which
Don Spencer turned in a 2:03.1
to beat O'Malley. Carl Robie,
Michigan's Olympic butterflyer,
did not make the trip.
The Wolverines will go into
heavy workouts again this week
in preparation for the dual meet
at Indiana next weekend.
