;HA Standings

Wolverines would appear to have
been world beaters as they com-
pletely dominated both games.
Friday night, for example, they
took a five to nothing lead and
then coasted home. In the first
period alone Tiger goalie Normand
Laurance was credited with 19
stops against only two for MiOhi-
gan's Jim .Coyle..
Dissatisfied
But even so Coach Al Renfrew
wasn't satisfied with the overall
performance. "We were all right in
the third period of the second
game," he said. "Other than that
we weren't too sharp."
Part of the difficulty probably
stems from the exam layoff, but
the Wolverines can't afford to be
rusty again when they meet power
laden Denver this weekend..
Renfrew ,placed more of the
blame on his team's inability to
get "up" for Colorado. "It's pretty
tough to get, up for a team _ like
that," he said with the implication
that the Wolverines were looking
ahead to the Denver series and
then after that' the two games
at Michigan Tech.
Another of his big concerns was
the failure of the "big guy," Red
Berenso4, to score. Not since the
first game of the Michigan State
series at East Lansnig has he
turned on the light.
"He's getting his chances, but

he's missing the net," said Ren-
frew. "On something like that you
either hit it or you don't."
All was not black, however, as
seldom in the WCHA can an

special praise. "They hustled," he
said.
Pat Cushing finally broke his
scoring drought with two goals
in the second game, his first and
second of the year, and the se-
cond line of Bil Kelly, Dale Mac-
Donald, and Joe Lunghammer ac-
counted for six of the Michigan
goals for their top point produc-
tion of the year.
Even defenseman Butch Nielson
caged his first goal of the year in
the first game of the series, and
Larry Babcock picked up the hat
trick Saturday to give the first
line a finger in the pie.
The Wolverines now have play-
ed as many league games this.

year as they played all last year,
but strange as it may seem the
toughest is yet to come, starting
with Denver this week.
"We'll have to go at full blast
if we hope to beat them," Ren-
frew said.
After that, Michigan, should
they come out of the series with
the Pioneers with a split or better,
will travel to Houghton to en-
gage the Huskies in what could
amount- to a death fight for se-
cond place. Should they come out
of that one still in second place
the Wolverines will face their
third "make-or-break" series, tak-
ing on Michigan State in home
and home matches.

Strong performances by three
veterans and an impressive array
of fast-improving sophomores en-
abled ┬░Michigan's gymnasts to up-
set defending Big Ten champion,
Illinois, 622-49%, last Saturday
before an overflowing crowd in the
I-M Building. '
The Wolverines' third straight
dual meet victory was led by Cap-
tain Rich Montpetit, who person-
ally accounted for 22 meet points
against the Illini, who have won
12 consecutive Conference titles
and were pre-season favorites for.
a 13th.
It was Illinois' first dual meet
loss in seven starts.

What was expected to be a close
meet turned into a rolatively easy
Wolverine victory considering the
close competition in each event.
With 56 points needed for a tie in
the meet, Michigan had registered
a 571/2-381/ lead with one event-
tumbling-still to go.
Sophs Shire
Michigan sophomores, led by Gil
Larose and Jim Hynds, provided
the big difference in the meet. La-
rose opened the meet with a stun-
ning upset of Illinois' Ray Hadley
in the free exercise. Larose edged
the 1960 Big Ten and NCAA cham-
pion in this event, 92-911/2, with
Montpetit and another Michigan
soph, Barry Spicer, close behind.

It was their old nemesis, re-
bounding, which sent the Wolver-
ines down to their sixth straight
Big Ten basketball loss, 70-53, last
Saturday against Minnesota.
Tied 32-32 at the half, Michi-
gan lost control, of the boards
during the second half and then
missed zLst of its good shots, be-
sides hitting on only 7-28 from
the floor, compared to 13-37 dur-
ing the first half.
John Tidwell got back in the

of one, 20-19, over the Badgers in
that department.
But in the second half the big
front line of Dick Erickson, Tom,
McGrann and Norm Grow went
to work and helped Minnesota'
rake in 33 caroms to only 19 for
Michigan. McGrann and guard
Bob Griggas went on a scoring'
spree in the second half, winding
up with 20 and 19 points respec-
tively.
Although Strack offered no ex-
cuses, the Wolverines played their
first game without scholastically
ineligible Don Petroff, the team's
third-best scorer and second-
leading rebounder.
"For some reason they were lust
more ready to play ball the second
half than we were," Strack said.
