Northwestern Romps, 105-82

MSU Stops Puckmen Again, 5-1

Special To The Daily
EVANSTON - Shooting 50 per
cent from the field, Big Ten co-
leader Northwestern rolled past a
drastically off-target Wolverine
quintet 105-82 here yesterday.
Michigan shot Just 35.4 per cent
from the field for their lowest
mark of the season. This alone
was enough to beat them but they
simplified matters by missing their
first five foul shots and sinking
just 14 of 29 from the line, also
a season low.
The game was so neat a replay
of Michigan's 93-73 pasting by the
Wildcats a month ago that ex-
pedient Wolverine coach Dave
Strack might have saved money
by sending a movie in lieu.of his
I basketball team.
As in the first mismatch, North-
western jumped off to an early
lead, in this case 19-12, and Mich-
igan was never again on top. The
Wildcats poured it on with such
power that Northwestern's cocky
coach Larry Glass had his bench-
ed emptied with five minutes to
go in the first half.
Before the game was over,
Northwestern's second stringers
Walt Tiberi, Sterling Burke, Jim
Cummins, Terry Hurley, and
Jerry Sutton had accumulated
enough time to put through 48 of
the Wildcat points, Tiberi get-
ting 18.
"Northwestern looked sure of
themselves and seemed to make
the foul shots," grumbled Strack.
"We didn't. They really walloped
us in the first half."

Said NU's Larry Glass, "The
thing a, coach really likes to see
is men coming off the bench and
doing their job. I thought Dan
Davis did a fine job for us of-
fensively and on the backboards."
First Start
Davis, i his first starting as-
signment'of the year, tied for high
honors for the Wildcats with 18
points and also grabbed 12 re-
bounds. All-America candidate
Jim Burns only scored 12 points,
but the Wildcats didn't need him
For the Wolverines, Craig Dill
scored the first eight points and
finished as game leader with 25.
Jim Pitts was second with 19 and
Dennis Stewart followed with 15.

utes, put managed to share re-
bouding honors with Dill. Both

Consistently Wolverine defend-
ers fell behind their men and had
to foul to keep them from scoring.
At the half, Michigan had 14 fouls
while Nortwestern had committed
only nine. Both Wolverine ball
handlers, guards Dennis Bankey
and Ken Maxey, fouled out, and
Dennis Stewart was in early foul
trouble, too.
The Jumping Pitts
Pitts sparked the shaken Wol-
verines in the second half, getting
15 of his 19 points. Jumping like
a trampolinist, he consistently had
position on the taller Wildcat
front-liners and more than once
went up for second and third tips.
Desperately hoping to escape
the cellar, the Wolverines went
into their full court press earlyI
in the second half, after having
abandoned it midway through the
first stanza. The halftime gap was'
52-38, and the closest they were
ever able to come in the second
half was 11 points.
But with six minutes to go, the
lead soared to 90-71.
And for the remainder of the
game, the success-starved Wildcat
fans screamed bloody murder as
the Wildcats poured it on. They
reached the century mark with a
little over a minute to go on a
basket by Hurley, but by that time
you would never have known
Michigan was on' the court.

But over in the Michigan dress-
ingroom nothing much was being
said at all. The previous "super
Wolverines" were caught in their
mild-mannered garb again and
dropped their third straight con-
ference game, tumbling their loop
record to 8-4.
"The whole game was in our

ed. "We kept the puck bottled up

However, the Wolverines soon
proved in the second period how
much they thought of old-time
radio announcers when their of-
fense failed to ignite. Instead, the
whole second period was com-
pressed into the last minute of
play when the Spartans' Lee
Hathaway dunked a Mikkola pass
into the net at the 19:11 mark to
widen the margin to three.
In what proved to be the Mich-
igan offensive show of the night,
Wolverine Jerry Hartman got the

tion to five for the night and a lot'

played against you in Ann Arbor

quered. Jim Ryun, Kansas' fan-

with a 4:04.9 run. Ryun was saving
his strength for the two mile relay

clocking was good enough for a

Michigan decided to rest on its
laurels in the two-mile relay by
resting Kearney, Alex McDonald

final leg to qualify for the NCAA.

Non-habit forming.

When Crunch left his home in Cut and Shoot, Pa., to go
off to a prominent midwestern university (Florida State)
he said to his sweetheart, a wholesome country lass named
Mildred Bovine, "My dear, though I am far away in col-
lege, I will love you always. I take a mighty oath I will
never look at another girl. If I do, may my eyeballs parch
and wither, may my viscera writhe like adders, may my
ever-press slacks go baggy."
Then he clutched Mildred to his bosom, flicked some
hayseed from her hair, planted a final kiss upon her fra-
grant young skull, and went away, meaning with all his
heart to be faithful.
But on the very first day of college he met a coed named
Irmgard Champerty who was studded with culture like a
ham with cloves. She knew verbatim the complete works
of Franz Kafka, she sang solos in stereo, she wore a black
leather jacket with an original Goya on the back.
Well sir, Crunch took one look and his jaw dropped and
his nostrils pulsed like a bellows and his kneecaps turned
to sorghum. Never had he beheld such sophistication, such
intellect, such savoir faire. Not, mind you, that Crunch
was a dolt, He was, to be sure, a country boy, but he had a
head on his shoulders, believe you me! Take, for instance,
his choice of razor blades. Crunch always shaved with
Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades, and if that doesn't
show good sense, I am Rex the Wonder Horse. No other
blade shaves you so comfortably so often. No other blade
brings you such facial felicity, such epidermal elan.
Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades take the travail out
of shaving, scrap the scrape, negate the nick, peel the pull,
oust the ouch. Furthermore, Personnas are available both
in double-edge style and in injector style. If you're smart
-and I'm sure you are, or how'd you get out of high school
-you'll get a pack of Personnas before another sun has set.
But I digress. Crunch, as we have seen, was instantly
smitten with Irmgard Champerty. All day he followed her
around campus and listened to her talk about Franz Kafka
and like that, and then be went back to his dormitory and
found this letter from his home town sweetheart Mildred:
Dear Crunch:
Us kids had a keen time yesterday. We went down to
the pond and caught some frogs. I caught the most of
anybody. Then we hitched rides on trucks and did lots
of nutsy stuff like that. Well, I must close now because I
got to whitewash the fence.
Your friend,
PS.... I know how to ride backwards on my skateboard.
Well sir, Crunch thought about Mildred and then he
thought about Irmgard and then a great sadness fell upon
him. Suddenly he knew he had outgrown young, innocent
Mildred; his heart now belonged to smart, sophisticated
Being above all things honorable, he returned forth-
with to Cut and Shoot, Pa., and looked Mildred straight in
the eye and said manlily, "I do not love you any more. I
love another. You can hit me in the stomach all,your might
if you want to'I
"That's okay, hey," said Mildred amiably. "I don't love
yone nithe. I fournd aTnew.bv
