for exams and on Dec. 23, wel-
comed Butler to Yost Field House
in a manner befitting the two
previous Hoosier state visitors,
Ball State and Indiana State, by
handily disposing of the Bulldogs,
99-81.
Fortunately, there wasn't enough
time between the Nebraska set-
back and the confrontation at
Cobo Hall for the Wolverines to
sulk over blowing a 12-point lead
with about seven minutes to go,
or being outscored 14-2 in the
closing minutes of the game.
Controlled Half
The Wolverines controlled the
opening half of the game at Lin-
coln as they marched to a com-
manding 41-31 halftime edge, in-
cluding 15 by Russell..
The second half started off like

more of the same, but after Rus-
sell had missed his first free
throw in 18 attempts all year with
the score standing at 46-36, the
bubble began to burst.
The Cornhuskers had moved to
within five at 56-51 when Bill
Buntin picked up his fourth foul
and was replaced. Some sloppy
ball handling cost Michigan the
ball three times within a minute,
and Nebraska capitalized on the
breaks to put the pressure on at
56-55.
Cazzie Again
Russell then made a tip-in, stole
the ball at midcourt and drove in
for a crowd-awing dunk, hit a
layup and notched a free throw
before the Cornhuskers had re-
alized what had hit them. The
eight-point margin at that point,
less than ten minutes to go, ap-

peared relatively safe, but before
long the pesky Nebraskans, con-
querors of Purdue earlier in the
week, had shrunk the margin from
its eventual height at 71-59, and
brought it to 71-70 with three
minutes left. Buntin had fouled
out when Michigan was up by
10, 71-61, but following his de-
parture, a lid went on the visitors'
basket.
Michigan finally broke tie six-
minute dry spell when John
Thompson hit a long jumper, and
appeared well on the way to vic-
tory when George Pomey im-
mediately stole the ball. But when
the Wolverines' stall failed to )ro-
duce a basket, Hare brought the
ball down and hit, bringing the
score to 73-72 with just under two
minutes to go.
The Wolverines chose to stall

once more, and it was less than a{
minute before Russell was fouled
and went to the line with a one-
and-one situation.
He missed the first one. The'
Cornhuskers pulled down the re-
bound-one of 54 compared to the

Pomey Fouls Pete
The Shockers brought the ball
down and before it "was too late,"
according to Strack, Pomey fouled
Pete while he was dribbling be-
hind the circle. Pete hit on his
single shot and the Wolverines
called their last time-out wirh 45
seconds remaining, trailing by a
pair, 85-83.
Once more it was Russell, as he
meshed a jumper that tied it
up just 17 seconds later. Wichita
brought the ball down, stalled for
11 seconds and called for a time
out with 17 seconds remaining.
The Shockers brought the ball
in after the strategy session, and
after ten more seconds had passed
with no shot attempted and no
foul committed, Coach Gary
Thompson got up and called for
another time with just seven s;c-
onds left. This set the stage for
the Wichita miscuehand Russell's
final dramatic touch.
