'M' Defeats Gophers for Title

Special To The Daly
COLUMBUS - The game was
supposed to be a mere formality:
only pushover Ohio State remain-
ed between Michigan and its first
team ever to go through the Big
Ten season without a loss.
But with Cazzie Russell watch-
ing the entire game from the side-
lines and Bill Buntin missing
Pep Rally
A pep rally, to give Michi-
gan's Big Ten basketball team
a sendoff to the NCAA Region-
als at Lexington, Ky., this
weekend, will be held tomor-
row night at Yost Field House
at 7:30 p.m.
The rally, sponsored by Inter-I
Fraternity Council will fea-
ture University President Har-
lan Hatcher, Dr. Hazel Losh of
the Astronomy Department,
football captain Jim Conley,
and Coach Dave Strack and the
basketball team.
eight minutes of action because of
foul troubte, the dream turned in-
to a nightmare as the lowly Buck-;
eyes downed the Wolverines, 93-;
85, last night.
Playing his final game before{
a partisan St. John arena throng,
Ohio State senior Dick Rickettsa
clicked for 32 points, thwarting
the Wolverines almost single-
handedly at times.
No Action
Russell, who had averaged 26
points per game in 13 previousj
encounters, was forced to the side-
lines with a sore throat and a 101
degree fever.
The team that had scored seven
points in less than a minute
against Indiana, twice fought from
behind to defeat Michigan State,
edged Illinois by a point, and
seemed destined to always respond
to the pressure, proved incapable
of the task last night as too many
Wolverine shots refused to go in
during the second half.
The first half was prelude of
what was to come, as the Wolver-
ines built up a commanding lead
only to see it disappear. Constant
ball-handling errors allowed the
Buckeyes to come from 11 points
down and leave the floor with a
39-39 tie at the intermission.

When action resumed OSU
quickly jumped off to a five-point
lead. Michigan was never able to
come back and trailed for the rest
of the contest.
The margin see-sawed from
three to eight points, but every
time the Wolverines started to
close the gap, they were unable to
get the basket to put them within
striking distance.
And every time the Buckeyes
brought the ball down, Ricketts
and Ron Sepic took over, drilling
15-footers with deadly accuracy
over the heads of the pressing-
Wolverine defenders. Sepic finish-
ed with 16 points-all of them on,
field goals.
Win Wrapped-Up
For the Buckeyes, victory was
assured when they grabbed a nine-
point lead, 82-73, with only 3:33
left on the clock. Michigan came
as close as 89-83 with 28 seconds
to play, but by this time, Buntin
had already fouled out, and it was
clear that there would be no
heroics.
Buntin, who scored 13 points be-
fore drawing his third foul after
ten minutes of play, finished with
27, while Oliver Darden had 22.
Starting his first conference game
of the season, John Thompson
finished in double figures with 13
points. George Pomey also finish-
ed with 13, and Captain Larry
Tregoning had 8.
The Buckeyes outshot the Wol-
verines, 55 per cent to.43 per cent,
as both teams took a total of 68

shots from the floor. The rebound-
ing totals wound up even at 38
apiece. Darden was the game's
leader with 15, while Buntin nab-
bed just five. Ahijevych and Sepic
led the Bucks with eight rebounds
each. Tregoning was Michigan's
runner-up with eight rebounds.
The Buckeye win keeps their
perfect home-court record against
Michigan intact. The Wolverinet
have never downed Ohio State at
St. John arena. Last year, Gary
Bradds pumped in 42 points to
beat Michigan at Columbus.
The loss prevented the Wolver-
ines from completing a perfect
Big Ten season, which has been
done only twice before in modern
conference history. Illinois did it
in 1943 and Ohio State in 1961.
On Friday, Michigan will open
its bid for an NCAA champion-
ship at Lexington, Ky., as they
take on the winner of tonight's
Dayton-Ohio University game.

By RICK STERN
With the Big Ten their domin-
ion and Yost Field House their'
court, Michigan's Wolverines were
crowned kings of college basket-
ball last Saturday after beating
Minnesota 88-85.
From the time Oliver Darden
sank two free throws with 47 sec-
onds left in the game, until the
last delirious player had left the
locker room, Michigan reigned
supreme.
Number One
"We're number one," screamed
20 voices in unison as photograph-
ers snapped pictures of sweaty
athletes drinking orange pop in a
gray locker room. Below, a capa-
city crowd filed out of a leaky
building with a dirt floor, savoring
the performance they had just
seen.
What was special about this
basketball game?
Nothing except that it assured
Michigan's Wolverines of a trip
to Lexington, Ky., this weekend,
gave them their first outright Big
Ten championship in 17 years
and left them undefeated at home
for the first time ever.
Nothing except that it gave
them the longest winning streak
in Michigan basketball history,
backed up their claim of being the
best basketball team in the coun-
try, and presented them with the
opportunity to become the third
Big Ten team in 35 years to com-
plete a full schedule undefeated.
"We're the Best"
"I'd say Minnesota was second
best in the conference, and I'm
pretty darn sure that we're the
best," said Coach Dave Strack to
reporters. As he paused a moment,
ten naked players grabbed him
and threw him fully-clothed into
the showers. Tom Jorgensen and
Jim Skala weren't far behind.
Previously, Strack had been car-
ried off the court on the arms of
his players after hugging Minne-
sota's heart broken coach, John
Kundla.

Minnesota at 87-83, and climaxed
another tremendous clutch drive
by the Wolverines. With 6:46 left
1on the clock, Michigan had trailed.
74-69. A minute later, jump shots
had given the Blue a 75-74 lead.
The teams exchanged baskets and
then Buntin grabbed the spotlight.
Buntin Shines
Held to three points in the first
half of his final home appear-
ance, the 6'7" Detroit senior scored
three straight baskets in a 90-
second span to put the WolverinesI
ahead 83-78. Strack later called
Buntin the best center in the,
country.
Missed Michigan free throws,
and clutch shooting by Lou Hud-
son and Yates, once again brought
the Gophers to within one. This
time it was Darden who took over.
The junior forward hit on a hook
layup with 1:26 left. Then, after
Hudson had made it 85-83 on a
free throw, Darden drew Dennyl
Dvoracek's fifth foul, and calmly*
stepped up to the free throw line
to win a championship.
It seems only fitting that the
final Michigan point of the after-
noon was notched by Cazzie Rus-
sell, a fellow who specializes in
late game heroics. Russell's marks-
manship also sparked the Wol-
verines during the opening mo-
ments of the game. The All-
America guard was responsible for
eight of his team's first 18 points
and finished as the leading scor-
er with 24 tallies.
Captain Larry Tregoning, an-
other senior making his last home

appearance, ended up with eight
baskets for 16 points, and also
grabbed twelve rebounds. A fur-
ther testimony to Tregoning's
board strength is the fact that
three of his field goals came on
tip-ins-twice when he followed
his own shot.
Pomey, the third senior on the
starting five, finished with 12
points, behind Darden with 18
and Buntin with 17. Buntin also
played a key role as a rebounder,
grabbing 16 as the Wolverines out-
boarded their opponents, 54-44,
though they were out-shot in per-
centage from both the field and
the free throw line.
Hudson took game scoring hon-
ors with 31 points, including 13 of
26 from the field. Archie Clark
had 19 for the Gophers.

By CHUCK VETZNER
Special To The Daily
CHAMPAIGN - So what team
won the Big Ten gymnastics meet
over the weekend?
a "No one," claim the Western
Conference officials.
"We did," chirp the Iowa Hawk-
eyes.
"We did," announces Michigan
coach Newt Loken.
It might sound like a new ver-
sion of To'Tell the Truth, but ac-
tually all three have valid claims..

Since the Wolverines won the
Big Ten title on the basis of dual
meets only, the conference get-to-
gether had only the purpose of de-
termining individual winners.
No point totals were kept, but
Iowa computed their own and
wound up with about 15 more
than Michigan.
Loken's Version
Loken's adding brought a dif-
ferent result because he didn't
include tumbling competition. He
felt that since the event was in-
cluded only as a sentimental fare-
well, it should not be included in
the tabulations.
Tumbling was eliminated as a
dual meet event this year and will
no longer be used in the Big Ten
meet.
"We could have gotten a lot of
points there," Loken added yester-
day, "but it just didn't mean any-
thing." His statement is well jus-
tified considering Mike Henderson
is the defending champion and he
didn't bother to compete in the
finals.
Gary Erwin led the trampoline
competition with the only Michi-
gan first place in the meet. Fol-
lowing right behind was teammate
Fred Sanders, while John Hamil-
ton took fifth. Hamilton was co-
champ with Erwin last year and
his performance seems disappoint-
ing unless one realizes that he just
barely qualified for the finals.
Hamilton had an extra bounce

in his Friday routine but was still
able to get the bottom qualifying
spot. On Saturday, he came back
with the third best score in the
event to move up five notches.
"John went back to his winning
routine from last year," explained
Loken. "That's the stuff he'll
throw against Southern Illinois in
the regionals."
Loken was well-satisfied with
the effort of his team despite its
single first place. "We wanted to
take some championships, but our
main goal was to get ready for,
Southern."
Regionals Next
Michigan takes on the Salukis
March 19 at Iowa in the regionals.
The winner goes to Penn State
the next week for the inter-re-!
gionals. Another victory there
would put them in the finals at
Carbondale, Ill., on April 3.
The individual champions will
be determined by going through
the same elimination process. The
top ten qualifiers from the Big
Ten will move on for the mdi-.

vidual regionals held the day after
the team meet.
One of the happiest surprises
for Michigan was Gary Vander
Voort's fourth place in the all-
around competition. 'Loken says
he is now considering using Van-
der Voort all-around against Sou-
thern Illinois.
Blanton 'Hits'
Another bright spot was the
ring work of Rich Blanton who
earned a 9.25 in the finals. "It's
the first time this year he really
hit well," Loken said.
In all, the Wolverines qualified
four men on the rings as Cliff
Chilvers took a third, Vander
Voort, who also qualified in three
other events, placed fourth, and
Dick Stone finished eighth.
Despite the squabble over who
won the meet, there was universal
agreement that Iowa's Glen Gailis
stole the show. The 5'1" senior col-
lected four first places including
the all-around. He qualifies for
everything except vaulting where
he finished 13th.
