the score at 20-7 over Oregon State. Leading the way is center Brian Patchen. The touchdown was

NEW YORK-Squandering a 16-point lead with only 9:36
to play, the Michigan Wolverines fell victims to a spirited St.
John's rally and suffered a 75-74 defeat in the finals of the
Holiday Festival Basketball Tournament held last week in
Madison Square Garden.
Prior to meeting St. John's, the Wolverines had defeated
Manhattan 90-77 in the first round and had topped Princeton
80-78 in the semifinals. The other teams in the tournament
were Cincinnati, Syracuse, LaSalle, and Temple.
A capacity crowd of 18,499 filled the Garden last Satur-
day night for the tripleheader finale. LaSalle defeated Syra-

So who's Nebraska?
Two nights after the disastrous
last-second 74-73 loss at Nebraska,
the then- second-ranked Michi-
gan Wolverines pulled off one of
their own by shocking Wichita,

Cazzie Russell's 30-foot game-

match.
Criticism of Oregon State's selection as the
West Coast representative to face Michigan reach-
ed new heights after the Wolverines dominated
the game in almost every possible way. Michigan
had been heavily favored to win but the decisive-
ness of the one-sided triumph left the Beavers
stuilnned. Beaver quarterback Paul Brothers, who
was dumped for 33 yards -
worth of losses, said after his for the breaks. In the first
ordeal, "I hope I never have half, punter Len Frketich was
to go through another after- ordered to punt on third down
noon like that one." twice and once on a second down.
But fullback Mel Anthony's 84-
Oregon State Coach Tommy Iward touchdown run and Carl
Prothro's attempted strategem Ward's 43-yard scoring scamper
was to hold back the Wolver- smashed such hopes before the
ines with his defense and wait half was over. Once the flood-'
gates were open, Anthony scored
-_-twice more in the third quarter
to earn the most valuable player
of the game award and quarter-
back Bob Timberlake added the
final touchdown with a 24-yard
bulldozing ramble.
Coach Bump Elliott, unanimous-
ly awarded the game ball by his
players, commented, "Anthony's
run gave us the momentum to go.
It gave us a spark and a chance
to get moving. We gained the
momentum and it started to snow-'
ball. The second big play of the
game for us was the punt Bob
Mielke blocked in the second
half."

See CAZZIE'S, Page 2 game films that the Beaver cen-
ter would pick the ball off the
ground before passing it back to

gan defenders something to look
for and a jump on their usual
rush. End coach Jocko Nelson'
designed the rushing pattern
which enabled Mielke to block the
punt and several other Wolverines
to get a piece of the punter.
"I said before the game that
Michigan was the best team I
had seen this year in person, on
film, or on TV and I'm more im-
pressed than ever after playing
them," Prothro commented after
the game.

touches on Michigan's 34-7 Rose Bowl victory over the Beavers with a 24-yard dash off the left
side of the line in the fourth quarter.

He stood perched on a table
in the midst of Michigan's
post-game bedlam under the
Rose Bowl stands, one hand
clasping tight onto the silver
Helms Trophy for the Most
Valuable Player in the 34-7 wal-
loping of Oregon State, the- other
arm around a grinning Carl Ward.
The flashbulbs popped, cam-
eras whirred, and somewhere in
the turmoil of hand-shaking,
back-slapping and general roar of
congratulations came the cries of
reporters and photographers. An-
thony put a smile on his face-
not hard to do after scoring three
touchdowns in the Rose Bowl -
and blinked into the barrage of
flashbulbs and questions:
"No, I wasn't aware I tied a
Rose Bowl record (for most points
in a game).
"Yes, I played high school foot-
ball in Cincinnati.
"Well, all I know is that
I could see daylight after Carl
Ward and John Henderson sprung
me on that pitchout. Nobody ever
touched me." He added that he
wasn't aware that he had set a
record for the longest run from
scrimmage with that 84-yard gal-
lop for the Wolverines' first touch-

Cincinnati edged Princeton

nation's top team, the pre-
tournament unanimous favor-
ite of the coaches, and an
eight point favorite, then met
St. John's to decide the cham-
pionship.
Michigan jumped to an eight-I

point lead with 11:15 left in the
first half after Cazzie Russell
sank two free throws, hit on a
long jumper, and John Thomp-
son made a lay-up after stealing
the ball. The Redmen of St. John's
battled back, largely due to the
efforts of 6-7 sophomore Sonny
Dove, and the first half ended
with Michigan leading, 39-35.
