r Pitts lost his pants.
Pitts and Ken Maxey 'lost their
second half shooting eyes.
And Michigan lost its shirt and
chance at a fourth straight Big
Ten title.
Pitt's losthis slacks in the re-
cesses of the visitors' locker room,
and the Wolverines lost their
third straight conference game
yesterday to a poised Illinois team,
99-93.
Harry Combes' Illini, strifed by
the pre-Christmas suspension of
four players including All-Amer-
ica prospect Rich Jones, evened
their record at 2-2.
No Spikes'
Any hopes for spiking the
punchy Illinois defense ended with
5.57 remaining when Maxey, an
explosivehdynamo from the same
'high school as Cazzie Russell,
bumped into his fifth foul. '
Illinois Captain Jim Dawson,
the games high scorer converted
thb ensuing free throws to push
the margin to six points, and the
Blue couldn't ,get back within
striking distance.
The Wolverines scratched back
to within four points 85-81, but

Michigan State, employing a
balanced scoring attack, fought off
a scrambling Iowa team led by
Gerry Jones and Sam Williams to
win their second straight Big Ten
victory, 79-70.
The game began as a defensive,
battle with Iowa leading at the
ten minute mark 14-9. The pace
then picked up and the Hawkeyes
carried a slim 33-31 lead into the
locker room at the half.
After Intermission, the Spar-
tans started moving on the
shooting of Steve Rymal, Lee
Lafayette and Matthew Aitch but,
the Hawkeyes spurted into the
lead 38-37 with 18:12 left.
Then MSU's 6-6 Art Baylor hit
a 12-foot jumper and the Spar-
tans were never headed again in
giving the Hawkeyes their first
conference loss against one vic-
tory.
In other conference play, 'Ohio
IState's Bill Hosket hit for 32
points but it was to no avail as
Indiana edged the Buckeyes, 81-
80.
Purdue evened its Big Ten rec-
ord at 1-1 by crushing a second
half Minnesota rally and running
away with a 86-73 victory.

the Illini whiled away the final
minutes with strpng offensive re-
bouding and a deadening stall..
Maxey had sprung leaks in the
shifting man-to-man defense,
sparking a first rally which had
changed a seven point disadvant-
age into a 48-47 halftime lead for
Dave Strack's defending cham-
pions.
Pick-up
"Darn right, he picked us up
when we needed a lift," said
Strack afterwards. "He commits
a few fouls, but he steals a few
balls too."
Maxey went in after Michigan's
ephemeral 3-0 lead on Dennis
Stewert's jumper from the key
and Craig's Dill free throw faded
to a 19-12 deficit. Deon Flessner
hit three straight jumpers from
15 feet out and Dill committed
two quick fouls to put Illinois in
control.
With ten minutes gone and six
fouls on the Wolverines, Maxey
checked in, took a swing pass
from Dennis Bankey, and charged
through for a lay-up. But referee.
Don Wedge ruled that Maxey ran
when he should have walked, and
he nullified the two points.
Seconds later, Maxey picked
the ball out of Dawson's hand and
ran up the t wo points-with
Wedge still at the other end of
the court.
Asked if he had cautioned
Maxey not to play Dawson as
tightly the 5'8" guard had picked
up his fourth foul, Strack replied,
"No, that's the way he plays
basketball. I don't tell him to let
up.
However, both he and Pitts lost

their energy in the second half
and the Wolverine attack slowed
down.
Before the second period got
under way, it was Pitts who could
have been ,mistaken for a grad-
uate of Cazzie's Carver High. The
springy 6'3" guard moved into the
low post and constantly got the
extr~a half step on his man to
plop in several easy baskets.
Starting the contest with the
best shooting per centage in the
Big Ten, Pitts hit six out of eleven
in the first half. But then the
roof fell in-or at least the basket
rim did. Pitts couldn't score an-
other basket until the last minute
of the game.
"We began losing rebounds and
giving them second and third
shots. We controlled the tempo in
the first part of the half, but they
regained the edge," explained
Strack.
"Michigan doesn't have a team
which can overpower anybody. We
have to play hard every minute.
Both teams like to run and both
played an action-packed game. We

CHAMPAIGN-In one of the
closest meets in history, Michi-
gan's gymnastic team remained
undefeated by slipping past Illi-
yesterday, 190.825-190.7.
After the match, Wolverine
coach Newt Loken said, "we are
overjoyed to have won this one-
it was a real thriller. Illinois is an
excellent team and we are happy
to just have come out on top."
Michigan captain Gary Vander
Voort termed the victory "a tre-
mendous team effort."

The long horse event opened
the action. Illinois' capture of this
exercise was due to the perform-
ance of junior Hal Shaw. Shaw
performed a spectacular maneuver
never before seen in competition.
His routine, known as the "O'-
Shaw," can best be described as
"a somersault off the hands from
the neck of the horse."
But the Illini lead did not last
long. The Wolverines, six-time de-
fending Big Ten champs, reeled
off victories in the next three
everts.
The Fuller brothers, Phip and
Chip, placed first and second
respectively in the floor exercise
with scores of 9.5 and 9.35 to put
Michigan in the lead by .6 of a
point.
On the side horse, Art Baessler
and Dave Geddes topped second
and third place behind Illinois'
Bill Silhan, but Michigan won the
event 26.8 to 26.1 to double its
small lead.
Pillow
The Wolverines further cushion-
ed their advantage when sopho-
more Dave Jacobs out jumped
teammate Wayne Miller, last
year's world champion, by rolling
up a tremendous 9.55 on the tram-
poline. Miller received a 9.2 and
Mike Zadel a 9.05 as the Wolver-
ines increased their slim lead to
just over 1.5 points. Illinois took
two of the final three events to
further tighten the score.
On the high bar, Illini captain

Three Michigan gymnasts --
Vander Voort, Mike Sisich and
Chris Vanden .Broek-turned in
better-than-average performances
to frustrate the Illinois comeback,
but the results of the exercise
brought Illinois once again with-
in .8 of a point of the defending
champions.
Rollo captured his second first
of the match on the parallel bars
with a 9.35 score. Wolverines Dick
Richards and Vander Voort placed
second and third in the exercise.

The only remaining event-rings-
witnessed five scores over nine,
which is usually considered as in-
dicative of an excellent perform-
ance.
There was a three-way tie for
first place honorsnwith Michigan's
Clark Chilvers and Rich Kenney
each marking 9.25, as did Illinois'
Mark Kaplan.
The event ended in a tie score
of 27.4 points for each team and
the Wolverines victory margin of
.125 was preserved.
After the meet, both Loken and
Illinois coach Charles Pond agreed
that the "O'Shaw" was one of the
highlights of the meet.

Strack.
Michigan went to a full court
press in a last desperate attempt,
but the move was anti-clirTactic.
Combes, expressed disappoint-
ment in the overal Illini perform-
ance, but was heartened by the
win. "I was particularly happy to
see Dave (Scholz) come back after
a bad night against Northwest-
ern."
"I'll tell you this though. If
we ever get a chance I'll have
something new to try on Alcin-
dor-a 2-2-3." he joked.

tone. Rock-and-roll music provid-
ed the background for diving
coach Dick Kimball's 75-yard
premeet sprint and the antics of
a skirted reporter trying to scale
a 6 foot ladder which isolated the
blue-green rectangle from the
stands.
Purdue tanker fans added to
this spirited effect. Until the end
of a wrestling meet next door,
hardly any tanker fans blotted
the gray of the minuscule bleach-
ers. Kimball estimated, however,
that the later "mob" surpassed
the attendance of the Big Ten
meet held at Purdue four years
ago.
Of the swimmers, John Salassa
proved tough competition yester-
day, with a first in the 200-yard
freestyle and third in the back-
stroke. With that performance be-
hind him he has started yearning
for his old freestyle events instead
of the backstroke where he is
mainly slated now.
The diving events were the most
exciting, if for no other reason
than that the Wolverine aquatic

acrobatts made their first appear-
ance of the season. Tom Meaden
and Dan Rittschof traded first
and second slots in one and three
meter competition. They en-
countered no real threat in Hoos-
ier Bob Quick (who is anything
but), evidently drafted and train-
ed by Papenguth himself, since
Purdue has no other divers.
Michigan's third position flip-
per, Bob Walmsley, was tactfully
entered only in exhibition. His
scores could have taken both
events and coach Kimball en-
thused, "With this three meter
score of 299, he could have been
second at Indiana Friday night.
Any time a diver gets 300 points,
he's done a darn good job."
Purdue evidently thought that
Michigan could have done better.
Papenguth was echoed by several
other Purdue partisans who sug-
gested that next time, Michigan
should bring its "good" team.
They were talking to the wrong
people. The young 'M' tankers
consider themselves the "good"
team.
