were conference games. This tied

firsthand, as they were ungra-

The Wolverines then squared off
against hockey arch-rival Michi-
gan Tech. Michigan won both
games of the rough, hard-fought
series by scores of 6-2 and 5-3.
Michigan goalie Bob Gray bested
Tech goalie Gary Bauman in this
series, as he did in five of the
seven games bewteen the two
schools. Bauman was still re-
named to the All-American team,
In their next four games, the
Wolverines averaged 15.25 goals
per game while holding opponents
to one goal a game. The Wolver-
ines topped Colorado 12-4 and 14-
0, smashed Ohio University by an
identical 14-0 score, and then
trounced Ohio State, 21-0.
Michigan State was next on the
schedule, and they were disposed
of also, but not without a fight.
Although Michigan won both
nights, 2-0 and 7-2, the games
were well played and tightly con-

once during the course of the
campaign, the WCHA Champion-
ship was decided in the last home-

Michigan State. Michigan played
some of its best hockey and
swept a pair from the Spartans

These victories brought the

In the WCHA playoffs, which
have for the past several years
determined the two WCHA teams
that are given bids to the NCAA
championships, Michigan came up
against Michigan Tech for the
third time in the 1963-64 season.
In the opener, Michigan edged
the Huskies 5-4. The winner of
the series, however, is determined
on the basis of total goals. As a
result, although Tech won the sec-
ond game 5-4 in regulation time,
a sudden death playoff period
was begun because of the tie in
total goals. The first overtime
went by with neither team be-

number 23 for the Blue, set the
stage for2a rematch between Den-

In the rematch the Wolverines
played nearly flawless hockey and
dumped the Pioneers 6-3. This
brought the nation'srmost coveted
collegiate hockey trophy home to
Michigan for the seventh time.
Although Renfrew spoke often
of the great balance of his three
lines, there were several super-
stars on last year's team.

record for assists last season with
