Last Minute Rally Wins, 80-79;
Buntin Leads Scoring with 30

By RICK STERN
Special To The Daily
CHAMPAIGN--Sparked by Caz-
zie Russell's heroic five point burst
in the last 32 seconds of play,
Michigan's Wolverines overcame a
six point deficit and stopped Il-
linois by an 80-79 score here yes-
terday.
The contest, Michigan's 11th Big
Ten victory without a loss, left
the Wolverines with an almost
clear path to their second con-
secutive Big Ten championship,
and first outright crown since
1947-8.
A howling, cheering, wild mass
of 16,128 Illini rooters watched as
Bill Buntin kept the Wolverines in
the game almost single-handedly
at times, but lost the spotlight in
the last moment to Russell's clutch
performance.
The 6'7" Buntin, winning his
duel with Illinois' 6'9" Skip
Thoren, put through 30 points,

and grabbed 13 rebounds. He hit
on 12 of 25 shots from the floor,
and equalled his highest point
total of the season. Buntin's other
30 point performance came in the
Wolverines' 89-83 triumph over
Illinois in Ann Arbor last Jan-
uary.
With 5:09 remaining on the
giant four-cornered scoreboard,
Dave Strack's quintet trailed 72-
66. -Jump shots by Russell and
Larry Tregoning, and a ten-foot
hook by Oliver Darden put it even.
Then Thoren and Buntin traded
lay-ups and the score was 74-74
when Jim Vopicka fouled George
Pomey with 1:12 left.
Go-Ahead
Pomey made good on the one
shot foul and put the Wolverines
ahead' for the first 'time since the
early moments of the game. Vo-
picka scored 20 seconds later on a
push shot from the corner, which,
had it stood up, would have
thrown the Big Ten race wide

open, and e n d e d Michigan's
chances of becoming only the
third Big Ten team in history to
go through a full schedule un-'
defeated.
But it didn't stand, thanks to
Russell. The 6'5" All-America
from Chicago tapped in an errant
Pomey shot with :32 showing on
the clock, to make it 77-76, Michi-
gan. Then, when Tal Brody missed
a lay-up and Darden pulled the
boards for his 15th and final re-
bound, Russell and Pomey broke
down court, and ,after hesitating
briefly, Cazzie put through a
cripple. This gave Michigan a
three point lead with 15 seconds
to play. Strack termed this the key
maneuver of the game. Russell
was called for charging on the
play, but after the shot.
Final Seconds
Vopicka sunk a free throw, and
the Illini pressed hard, fouling
Russell just six seconds later. His
aim was true and the score was
80-77, making a last second hook
shot by Thoren merely a statistic,
"A guy like Russell always comes
through when he's needed," said
Illinois coach Harry Combes after
the game.
"That's the fourth this season
that he's won for us in the final
seconds," said Strack.
"It was the best defensive game
we've played all year," Combes
commented.
Warpath
And defense it was, as the Illini
tribe opened like ballhawks on
the warpath. The Wolverines,
meanwhile, were stone cold in the
first five minutes of play, and
Illinois led 9-4, then 13-10, before
the unpopular visitors took any
lead.
When Illinois broke a 28-28 tie
on one of Bogie Redmon's 11
arching jumpshots, they were not
to trail again until Pomey's free1
throw.
The halftime score was 40-38,'

Michigan's last hope for a bid
n to the WCHA playoffs was smash-
ed last night in a hard-fought
8-2 loss to Michigan Tech.
The scrappy Wolverines battled
hard against the powerful Hus-
xkie aggregation, but to no avail.
Tech never trailed as they scored
three times in the second period
to break a 1-1 tie, and coasted
on to victory from there. As a
dejected Coach Al Renfrew said
after the game, "We skated hard,
but we just couldn't put the puck
in the net."
The first period was scoreless
for 17 minutes and 32 seconds un-
til Tech wing Wayne Weller hit
BILL BUNTIN for his first of three goals on a

31ST CONSECUTIVE VICTORY:

Matmen Roll Over MSU

17-8

By RICK FEFERMAN
Putting forth a strong team
effort to whip Michigan State
17-8 yesterday, Wolverine matmen
completed their dual meet season
and extended their winning streak
to 31.
Coach Cliff Keen, compliment-
ing the grapplers, felt that, "they
wrestled as .a team as well as they
have all year. Michigan State
fought a good tough, hard meet,
but we had the edge by a little
bit."
Jim Kamman provided a 'key
victory when he climbed into in-
jured Cal Jenkins' spot at 147
pounds and gained a convincing
9-4 victory over previously unde-
feated Dick Cook. Kamman man-
aged to get the first takedown
early in the first period and seem-
ed to take heart from it. When
Cook scored a reversal, the Mich-
igan sophomore came right back
with a reversal of his own. At that
point Cook appeared to be tiring
and Kamman increased his lead
to record- his second victory in
Big Ten competition.
Seven Seconds
At 137 pounds, Bill Johannessen
seemed to be headed for his
fourth draw of the year, but with
a mere seven seconds remaining
in the match he brought down Joe
Ganz to register a 2-1 victory.
Ganz, warned for stalling in the
scoreless first period, escaped to
take a 1-0 lead, but "Billy Jo"
worked a sit-out in the first six
seconds of the final period to knot
the score.
Another see-saw contest de-
veloped between Wolverine Bob
Fehrs and Gary Smith. Smith
built up a 3-0 advantage via a
first period takedown and an es-
cape. Fehrs' takedown narrowed
the margin to one point, 3-2; 15
seconds into the third period he
escaped to tie the score. Twice

seconds. remained when Fehrs
grabbed a leg and brought down
Smith for the deciding point in
the 5-4 victory.
Two supposed "cripples," Lee
Deitrick and Rick Bay, both won
easily without reinjuring their
knees, for which Coach Keen was
"grateful." Deitrick, 157 pounds,
outclassed B o b Hansen, 6-1,
spending the balance of the match
trying to turn Hansen on his back.
Bay, at 167, found his main prob-
lem in keeping Spartan Terry
Leonard on the mat, as he scored
a relatively easy 6-2 triumph.
Heavyweight Bob Spaly was up-
set for the second consecutive
week, as former Pennsylvania
prep school champion Jeff Rich-
ardson hung on for a 3-2 victory.
Spaly engineered a sit-out to grab
a 1-0 lead in the second period,
but this was neutralized by Rich-
ardson's stand-up, escape early in
the final period. Spaly kept
"shooting" for Richardson's legs
but could not bring down the mus-

cular Spartan. With 1:12 remain-
ing Richardson took down Spaly,
who escaped 15 seconds later. Be-
hind 3-2, Spaly's final efforts for
a takedown were repulsed.
Next weekend the Wolverines
host. the Big Ten wrestling cham-
pionships.
"I expect a real dogfight, espe-
cially from Minnesota and MSU,"
stated Coach Keen, "but I think
,we have enough stuff to win."
