Burns Ignites 93-73 Holocaust

Wolverines Scalp Pioneers, 4-3

The strains of "Hail to the
Victors" whistled absent-mindedly
by one player in the. Northwestern
locker room were about as in-
congruous as the 93-73 pasting
handed the Wolverines yesterday
It was Michigan's first Big Ten
opening game lose in five, years,
its first loss to Northwestern in
four years and only its second loss
in four basketball seasons within
4 the confines of archaic Yost Field
The Northwestern triumph was
not a total surprise to anyone, in-
cluding Wolverine coach Dave
Strack. In the Michigan locker
room after the game Strack mut-
tered dejectedly, "we knew their
strongest offensive threats were
(Jim) Burns and (Ron) Kozlicki
and we were right."
Slippery When Wet
Kozlicki, a 6'6", 205-pound sen-
forward-turned-center, looked
as smooth as a shot of Johnny
Walker's as he slipped in 22 lpoints
with a. combination of 20-foot
Jump shots and one-handed tip-
ins. The 6'4" Burns showed shades
of All-America potential with a
27-point performance.
The first half was muddled with
a barage of bad passes, violations,
poor shots, and general ineptitude
on both sides. Twenty-two turn-
overs were committed in the .first
20 minutes with Michigan winning
the mistake race 12 to 10.
Northwestern, although pouring
in points from the charity stripe
at a 90.9 per cent clip, shot a dis-
mal below par average of 32.6 per
cent from the field. But the Wol-,
verines kept pace with a compar-
able 34.3 percentage on field goals
and went out of their way to keep
the score down by missing seven
out of their 15 free throws at-
Bombs Away
With four and a half minutes
gone in the first half, Northwest-
ern spurted away from a 7-7 tie
to a 24-10 lead while holding
Michigan to just three free throws
in a seven-minute stretch. The
Wildcats managed to keep a ten-
point lead until five. minutes be-
fore intermission.
Sophomore forward Dennis Ste-
wart drove in for a layup and
two points, stole an errant North-
western pass and dunked for two
more, and made two free throws
in the next 30 sebonds.
The rest of the Michigan squad
+ followed suit to come back with-
in a single point of Northwestern-.
the closest the Wolverines ever
got for the rest of the game.
Slowing Down to a Stop
Then with two minutes, left in
the half and Northwestern in front
31-30, Stewart-who had looked
good in leading the Wolverines on
the road to recovery-was out-

was effective but we didn't score
enough when we got the ball to
make any difference," said Strack.
"I wouldn't say they broke it to
the effect that it helped them a
lot, but it certainly didn't work
like I wanted it to."
Coach Larry Glass of the Wild-
cats played the strategy game too
as he switched from a man-to-
man defense in the first half
(whici held the Wolverines to 32
points) to a two-three zone in'the
second half (which allowed 41
"I wanted to see how they would
react- to a change-up in mental
attitude," Glass said. "They're a
young club and haven't played
together much . . . like we were
a couple of years ago."
Whatever the defense the Wild-
cats used, the result was the same
-Michigan couldn't score and
Northwestern could. Glass substi-
tuted freely even in the first half
with no ill affects. He pulled Burns
when the high-scoring guard
'picked up two early fouls and also
gave Kozlicki a rest in the second
With almost 7,000 loyal Mich-
igan rooters present, the few
Northwestern fans didn't stand a
chance in psychologically influenc-
ing the game. But maybe they saw
the handwriting on the wall. Theirj
third in a series of banners may be
grim reality for Michigan basket-
ball: "Too bad, no more Caz."

maneuvered -under the Northwest-
ern basket by Kozlicki. Stewart
picked up his third personal by
trying to prevent the slippery
center from making an easy layup.
Kozlicki completed the three-
point play by plopping in the free
throw and Michigan suddenly lost
that crucial quantity of physics
and sports-momentum.
Who Needs Catnip?
The cold-shooting Wildcats of
the first half warmed their claws
up and tore apart the Wolverine
man-to-man defense and shot a
torrid 55.6 per .cent in the second
half. The Wolverine field-shooting
percentage also improved some-
what to 43.6 per cent, but they
could only make feeble scratches
on the Wildcat lead.
For the first 11 minutes of the
second half Northwestern kept an
eight to 12 point cushion between
them and the bumbling Wolver-
ines. Within four minutes the
game was competitively dead as
Burns, senior forward Mike Weav-
er and sophomore reserve Dan
Davis struck for 15 points to three
by the Wolverine guns.
Off and On
Michigan employed either a
zone or man-to-man fullcourt
press intermittently to slow down
the fast-moving Wildcat offense.
The result was an. occasional Mich-
igan steal, an occasional North-
western layup, but most often the
press had no effect at all.

Spartans Outlast Illiln, 76m-74

Michigan's answer to Denver's
Wiste brother act, Mike and Lee
Marttila, combined for a spectac-
ular third period goal to break a
three-all deadlock and give the
Wolverine icers a 4-3 victory over
the Pioneers.
The score came at 7:43 of the
final period and untied a knot that
Denver had secured only three
and a half minutes earlier on two
quick goals in a span of 15 min-
utes earlier on two quick goals
in a span of 15 seconds.
Captain Mike Marttila skated in
on the left side of the Denver
net, passed by it, and dropped
the puck off to his brother Lee
trailing him. The junior Marttila
slapped it past Pioneer goalie Ger-
ry Powers at point-blank range.
The goal clinched a split of the
series for the Wolverines, who
dropped their first loss of the sea-
son Friday night, 7-5.
Pigskin Puck Play
"It's a lot like football pass
play," said Denver Coach Murray
Armstrong of the goal. "The man
is covered, then for a second he's
not. They get the ball to him and
they've got a score'.' Marttila got
enough of an opening to beat Pow-
ers cleanly with the clincher.
Armstrong was pleased with
last night's game, and the entire
series. "We came to town looking
for a split. When we won Friday
we knew we had it. I thought both
team played well, perhaps a little
better tonight (Saturday). We got
the breaks on Friday, but tonight
more of them broke against us
than for us."
Home, Sweet Home
The Pioneers head home with
with a 16-game home stand
(that's right, 16 in a row) ahead
of them. Due to some nifty sched-
uling, the Denver icers are through
traveling until playoff time.
Denver's last road game started
out badly as Michigan rolled up
a 2-0 lead in the first period. Bob
Baird opened the scoring right
away at 1:51 of the first period.
He took a pass in front of the net
from Dean Lucier and flipped the
puck over Powers and another
prone defender.
Action quieted down until 12:25,
when Bob Boysen skated around
the Denver defender on the right
side and took a tough-angle shot
that hit Powers and slipped in.
The Pioneers got one back five
and a half minutes later when
winger Cliff Koroll launched a
shot that appeared headed far to
the left of the net. The puck
caught Wolverine defenseman Bill
Lord's skate six feet in front of
the net and scooted through a
surprised Harold Herman.
Baird's Second
Baird picked up his second goal
of the night when he backhanded
a loose puck past Powers from 15

feet out at 7:19 of the second per-
iod. The score upped the Wolver-'
ine margin to 3-1.
Denver came out hustling in the
third period and in four minutes
had tied it up. Lou Geddes scored
at 3:46. Just 15 seconds later,
Randy Ward tapped in a rebound
of a Jim Wiste shot to set the
stage for the dramatic Marttila
and Marttila goal.
"Michigan scored when they
had to. They kept just far enough
ahead of us," explained Arm-
strong. "We got up a pretty good
head of steam there in the thirda
period, but those penalties really1

locked up the game for Michigan.
"I thought our defense was just
as good as Friday," added Arm-
strong. Michigan's offense was
much more potent, however, tak-
ing 39 shots on goal to Denver's
31. "They look a lot better when
they shoot more," said Armstrong.
After Marttila's score, the Wol-
verines kept the pressure on. They
moved the puck well in the Denver
zone and had Powers putting out
his best effort of the night.
"That sure wrecked my shoot-
ing percentage," laughed Dean Lu-
cier in the locker room after the
game. Lucier saw Powers kick out
three of his close range shots in
a span of two minutes.

Bailey five. Then as these two'
cooled off, Lee Lafayette and Mat
Aitch, who scored 13 points in the
first half, took up the slack.
