WEST LAFAYETTE - Mich- top 4-3. The Gold and Black raced
igan's cagers bumped into another
roadblock in their quest for first
division status last night in the
streaking form of the Purdue
The loss was the third straight
for Dave Strack and his defend-
ing Big Ten champions, following
a home victory two weeks ago
against the same Purdue squad.
The loss dropped the Wolverines
to a 2-7 mark in the conference.
"We played better and a lot
harder than against Ohio State
last weekend," moaned Strack
after the game. "But we couldn't
quite crack their defense when
the opportunity presented itself."
The Boilermakers, led by guards
Bill Keller and Henry Ebershoff,
outran the Wolverines from the
opening tip-off, taking advantage
of numerous fast breaks to
squelch Strack's hopes to control
the pace of the game.
"Their guards were outstanding,
complementing each other perfect-
ly," Strack observed.
Dennis Stewart inauguarted the
action by plopping a 15-foot
jumper with only five seconds
gone. But Ted Reasoner, Boiler-
maker center,, popped two points
to a 14-point lead with ten min-
utes to go in the half, as Herm
Gilliam stole a pass and went the
length of the court to dunk the
Purdue led 46-40 at the half.
"But we should have been ahead
by 13," grimmaced Boilermaker
coach George King. "Just like we
should have won against Michigan
the last time we played them, be-
cause they played much better
here tonight then before."
The second half began as if the
Wolverines were going to give
King a repeat performance. Den-
nis Bankey canned a jumper and
Craig Dill scored a tip-in bringing
the mark to 46-44.
Seconds later a Pitts rebound
and the finishing of a three-
poit play by Bankey drew the Wol-
verines even at 50-50 with 17:16
left in the game.
The Boilermakers' Roger Blay-
lock then single-handedly stalled
the rally by hitting two buckets
in a row. Purdue kept the edge
until the period was half over.
Sophomore forward Bob Sulli-
van tied it up at that point, leav-
ing the score knotted at 71-71 with
From there the Boilermakers
reeled off six points in a row.
Guard Bill Keller capped the up-
rising with a reverse layup to run
the margin to 77-71, and a few
moments later it was back up to.

attempts were futile. Several times
in the last five minutes of the
game Michigan cut the lead to

Carl Robie, a knowlegeable
swimming announcer, and faulty
wiring made Michigan's last dual
meet of the season against Min-
nesota more than the 79-44 splash
party it seemed.
Robie finished his last dual
meet season at Michigan by break-
ing the national 1000 yard free-
style record set by UCLA's Mike
Burton last week. The progress
towards his 9:56.1 time was closely
followed by announcer Paul Clif-
ford, former Ann Arbor High
At a quarter of the way through,
Clifford reported that Robie was
beating his own best time by four
seconds and after 400 yards, he
still had the same lead on himself.
By the 36th lap (there are 40
in the event), the Michigan swim-
mers started waving towels and
chanting "Go" to the rhythm of
his strokes. Two laps short of the
finish the thin crowd echoed the
excitement, making the din of aF
l watched as the Michigan sopho-
more pulled out in front to win.
Clifford actually saved specta-
tors from ennui when the meet
was held up because of wiring
difficulties before the 50 yard free-
style. He intoned, "You see, a
swimmer touching plate in lane 2
stops the clock in lane 5.". Thej
electric plates didn't make much
difference in the 50, though, as
Tom O'Malley clearly edged out
The biggest disappointment of
the meet was Russ Kingery, if only
to himself, mainly because he
didn't set a pool record in the 200
yard backstroke. His time was two
hundredths off Gary Dilley's time,
and the backstroker kicked the
starting block in frustration as he
pulled himself out of the pool.
Afterwards he cooled down and
shrugged, "I've been sick all week
and shouldn't have expected to
come as close as I did. I guess I'm
in good condition."

The time was even more phe-

had no competition except the
clock. But he was psyched up for
this race, because, as he pointed
out, "I've never held a national
record and this was my last crack

Sullivan also turned in a fine
effort, coming off the bench to hit

Late in the game, it appeared
that Sullivan and McClellan might
combine their hot outside hands
to fire home a victory. But Strack
benched Sullivan inexplicably with
four minutes showing on the clock
though the Manitowoc sophomore
had made four shots in a row.
And McClellan took only two shots
in the last ten minutes of play,
after hitting seven of his first ten.
The game was the 12th out of
19 in which Michigan allowed its
opponents more points in the sec-
ond half than in the first, in-
dicative of late game defensive
problems. And it was the 14th out
of 19 in which Michigan scored
more points in the second half
than they had in the first, indi-
cating that it takes them 20 or so
to get on their offensive game.
Michigan made 15 turnovers in
