MADISON - Nobody has ever
accused Joe Franklin of being
Superman. Not even Captain Nice.
But after leading the Wisconsin
Badgers past Michigan last night,
98-90, the 6'4", 165-pound forward
may have skipped the locker room
and changed clothes in a tele-
4 phone booth.
While popping in 27 points, high'
for both teams. Franklin proved
to everyone that he could leap tall
buildings in a single bound. But
he preferred to pull down 15 re-
bounds and the Wolverines'
chances of a repeat title.
Franklin's greatest contribution,
however, may have been his own
gluttonal tendencies for punish-
ment. Constantly driving in for
the basket, "Spider" managed to
draw enough hacks from the op-
osition to help four Michigan
cagers foul out.
From Charity Stripe
Franklin was allowed 19 free
chances and connected on 13.
Jim Pitts, Dave McClellan, Den-
nis Bankey and Bob Sullivan all
were casualties of the referee's
whistle-the first time all season
the 'Wolverines have been in
Yet the foul situation was prob-
ably more indicative of a hard-
fought battle than a hit-and-run
attack. Even before the game be-
gan, the Wolverines spotted the
Badgers one man when starting
forward Dennis Stewart was de-
clared temporarily ineligible.
However, Michigan coach Dave
Strack was confident that Michi-
gan's leading scorer would be
"But Stewart's absence wasn't
necessarily the major factor in
our defeat," Strack grimaced.
"McClellan subbed for Stewart
and played an excellent game .. .
and we probably showed our best
team effort all season.''
From the opening tip, the teams
see-sawed back and forth. Sulli-
van grabbed the ball from Dill
and the Wisconsin native gave
thee Wolverines a 2-0 lead with
a 20-foot jumper with only seven
Both teams appeared tense,
however, and were cold during the
first five minutes of play. After
missing three straight free throws
at the beginning of the game,
Franklin finally notched one to
break the ice for the Badgers.
Badgers Break Tie
Wisconsin broke a 23-23 tie with
eight minutes to go in the half
and, when Franklin tipped in a
rebound moments later, it gained
the five-point edge it controlled
until intermission. The half ended,
49-44, with Franklin canning 21
points on a variety of tip-ins and
soft turn-around jump shots.
Bankey, taking long shots that
he seldom attempts and driving
effectively past slow Badger guard
Jim McCallum, led the Wolverines
at halftime with 11 points.
Pitts, although he gained his
fourth foul with five minutes to
go in the half, and was replaced
by Willie Edwards, still led the
Wolverines with six rebounds.
Michigan switched to a zone de-
fense at the beginning of the sec-
and half after using the man-to-
man in the first 20 minutes. "We
thought that the zone would help
gain momentum and help protect
Pitts from picking up a fifth foul,"
Led by Pitts' aggressive of-
fensive display under the basket
and Dill's outside shooting, Mich-
igan finally moved ahead of Wis-
c6nsin, 55-54, with 13 minutes left
on a Pitts' jumper.
But the junior guard was cred-
idet with his fifth foul only two
minutes later after cramming in
18 points and grabbing eight re-
bounds, trying for the team high
in backboard snatches with Dill,
McClellan and Sullivan.
Sullivan Drives In
The teams traded baskets for
several minutes as Sullivan time
after time drove in from the top of
the key to convert his spectacular
lay-ups. However, Franklin and
teammates Chuck Nagle and Mc-
Callum offset Sullivan's two-?
pointers and Dill's steady free-
McCallum picked up 17 points
in the second half but arroused
Wisconsin coach Johnny Erick-
son's ire by "jumping higher on
offense than on defense." Streak-
ing Ken Maxey and Bankey made
McCallum appear cemented to
The Wolverines never had bet-
ter than a two-point edge and led
for the last time with 3:30 left
on the scoreboard, 87-86, when
Sullivan dropped in one out of
two at the charity stripe.
The margin was short-lived,
however, as Franklin went one
better by sinking two free throws
eight seconds later. In the process,
McClellan became the second
Wolverine to foul out.
A minute later, Sullivan gained
his fourth and fifth fouls and
Bankey followed suit seconds
later. Michigan's bench was nearly
emptied as Strack had to go with
Wisconsin, employing an effect-
ive stal in the last minute of play,
increased the final margin to
eight points by getting Franklin
open under the basket twice.
Erickson concurred with Strack
that both teams exhibited their
best performance to date. "I no-
ticed that Michigan played much
better than in Los Angeles. How-
ever, with so many fouls called,
neither team could really play
their own game," explained Erick-
son. "We couldn't run our defenses
or work our plays."
Michigan players were whistled
down 29 times, while the Badgers
were caught 23 times.
Strack was dismayed at the loss I to "mix" with the Wolverines.

THE MOST EXCITING OPERA

Consider a career with The
Carpenter Steel Company. Al-j
though it ranks as one of the 500
largest companies in the nation,
it is small enough in personnel
that you'll be known at all levels
of management by your first
name and your contributions to
progress will be quickly recog-
nized ana rewarded.
Challenges come fast and ex-
citingly at Carpenter. As a leading
producer of specialty steels, in-
novations, improvements and
new developments are constantly
demanded from Carpenter metal-
lurgists and engineers to serve
America's most exotic industries
-aerospace and electronics, to
name but two. With ordinary ton-
nage-type steels selling at about
$140 a ton, you can quickly un-
derstand the importance of your
role in producing Carpenter
metals with a price tag averaging
$1,500 a ton.
As "Forbes" magazine states it
... "Carpenter Steel is different
from most other steel companies
and devoutly wishes to remain
that way." This runs the gamut
from company profits to personal
opportunities, advancements, and
fringe benefits. Carpenter is an
equal opportunity employer.
