Special To The Daily
INDIANAPOLIS-The Michigan
basketball team battled hard be-
hind a tight zone defense, but
Butler's outside passing Jeff Blue's
tactics under the board eventual-
ly pushed the Bulldogs to a 69-
61 victory before a large partisan
crowd.
The Wolverines will try to get
back on the win trail tomorrow
night at home after losing twice
on the road. Denver, better known
for its hockey team, will provide
the opposition.
Michigan held the speedy Bull-
dogs to a stand-off for the first,
thirty minutes of play, but hot
shooting Tom Bowman sandwiched
two free throws by Blue with four
jumpers from the circle to pro-
vide Butler with the impetus for
a final surge.
Zone Defense
The Wolverines used the zone
defense yfor the first time this
year, hoping to catch the usually
fast breaking Bulldogs surprised.
For the most part it worked, ex-
cept for the presence of the Bull-
dog's Bowman.
Blue was a tyrant under the
boards. He used his 6-6 frame
and a weight advantage on the
Wolverine's John Harris to snatch
23 rebounds and score eight bask-
ets, all of them layups or tip-ins.
He also drew eight Wolverine fouls
and hit seven for thirteen free
throws. His rebounds were almost
half the Bulldog's 51.
And when Butler couldn't get
the ball, in the Blue, Bowman
would step back and hit on his
patented jump shot. He hit on
ten,
Best Shooter
His performance left Tom Jor-
genson, Michigan assistant coach,
to remark, "I think he's the best
shooter I've ever seen."
Harris played a strong game
under the boards for the Wolver-
ines. He blocked several shots (in-
cluding a Bowman jumper) and
led the team in rebounds with 14,
but Blue had too much weight
and strength. Harris also scored
17 points as Michigan's second
high scorer.
John Oosterbaan once again ledj
the scoring with 26. the Michigan
high for the year. He also added
12 rebounds to help Michigan4
match the Bulldogs on the boards.
Oosterbaan hit on ten for eighteen1
from the floor. Most of his buck-
ets came off a double stream which
his teammates set up at the free
throw line.-
Singles Out
After the game Coach Dave
Strack singled out the play of his
two forecourtmen, Harris and Oos-
terbaan, but also indicated he was
happy with the play of his whole
team. "I thought we played a good
game," he said, "the zone both-
ered them a lot, but they were
better than I thought from the
outside."
Strack drew rounds of jeers
from the crowd for some protests
about the officiating. He was par-
ticularly displeased about losing a
time-out in the second half
because of an injury to Doug Her-
ner.
Usual procedure is that if a
man is injured and replaced im-
mediately no time-out is charg-

against Ball State in Ann Arbor last week, scored 17 points last

WINSTON-SALEM-Ohio State,
the nation's top-ranked basket-
ball team, gained the upper hand
late in the first half and went on
a second half scoring spree to
crush third-ranked Wake Forest
84-62.
Wake Forest led in the early
minutes of the game and kept
things close throughout the first
half, which ended with the Buck-
eyes leading 37-31.
However, led by All-America
Jerry Lucas, who scored 23 points,
and John Havlicek, the Bucks
broke the game open early in the
second half. At one stage, Ohio
State scored 13 points in about
a minute and a half while hold-
ing the Deacons scoreless.
Wake Forest's 6-8 star Len
Chappell, guarded tenaciously by
Havelicek, wound up with 15
points.

LAFAYETTE-Sophomore Guard
Mel Garland scored 26 points to
lead Purdue and All-America
Terry Dischinger to a run-away
91-66 victory over Detroit.

EAST LANSING - Michigan
State rolled past Tulsa 90-70 for
its second straight non-conference
win of the season.
The Spartans blocked any
chance of a victory by their Mis-
souri Valley opponent by jump-
ing-to a 51-35 halftime lead.
** *
BLOOMINGTON-Kansas State
broke a late tie with a string of
nine straight points and defeated
Indiana 88-78. The victor's Mike
Wroblewski took scoring honors
with 24 points, edging Indiana's
Jimmy Rayl who pumped in 23.

MADISON - Showing all the
poise and shooting accuracy that.
could be expected of an NCAA
champion, Cincinnati won its third
straight by defeating Wisconsin.,
86-67.
COLUMBIA - Missouri hit 36
of 40 free throws in beating North-
western 84-69, leading all the way

from the early minutes.
The Tigers built a 39-29 half-
time lead and Northwestern never
got closer than six points in the
second half.
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota
used a stall and some aggressive
play to post a come-from-behind
70-56 victory over Southern
Methodist.
Led by their big front line of
forwards Eric Magdanz and Ray;
Cronk and center Tom McGrann,
the Gophers surged from a 34-30
halftime deficit to finally take the
lead at 45-44 early in the second
half.
. * *
NORMAN-Illinois took charge
late in the first half and defeated
Oklahoma 72-60.
Oklahoma got a 26-point per-
formance from Stan Morrison and
held an eight point margin over
the invading Big Ten team once
in the first half.

IOWA CITY - Iowa sharpened
ed up its game for the opening
of the home basketball season
and defeated Miami of Ohio 75-
55 on the 26-point shooting of
Don Nelson.
Nelson worked from the inside
and teammate Andy Hankins fired
from the outside to pace the
Hawkeye attack, which atoned for
the 65-59 defeat Iowa suffered in
its first game of the season at
Evansville, Ind., last week. Hank-
ins got 17 points.

ed, but not this time. "We could
have used that time-out later,"
Strack said.
And indeed they might have,
for the margin was only five
points until the Bulldogs scored
four points with 36 seconds left.
The Jump shot at the buzzer
by Tom Cole tied the score at 31-
all after the Wolverines had been
a couple of points behind for
most of the first half. They con-
tinued to scrap the Bulldogs un-
til Bowman broke a 46-46 tie with
10 minutes left. Oosterbaan tied
it up again with a layup, off the
screen, but Bowman hit his sec-
ond shot and Blue's free throw
put Butler four points ahead.
