against Michigan State Saturday
--hitting 31 of 60 shots in the
72-65 win-lost it again last night.
The inevitable result was their
12th defeat in 13 Big Ten games.
"We got enough shots - they
just didn't go in," has typified
more than one Michigan defeat
this season. Last night the losers
took 73 shots to Illinois' 68. Mich-
igan hit 21 field goals for a paltry
28.4 per cent, and Illinois 37 for
an excellent 54.4 mark.
The lights went out in Huff
Gym, as far as the Wolverines
were concerned, soon after the
opening minutes of the game. With
the score 4-4, the Illini bucketed
five quick points to make it 9-4.
Then Michigan went into a pro-
tracted shooting slump, and with
each passing minute it became
obvious Michigan was not about to
make the Illini their second Con-
ference victim of the season. At
halftime it was 40-28.
Forward Govoner Vaughn
doomed Michigan after the inter-
mission by canning nine out of
nine field attempts in leading Illi-
nois to a 50-point half. Vaughn
ended up with 30 points, but Mich-
igan's John Tidwell did him one
Tidwell's 31 tallies accounted
for half of Michigan's points and
extended his Michigan one-season
scoring record to 502.
Lovell Farris, the other half of
the Michigan offense, scored 18
points and was instrumental in
establishing Michigan supremacy
on the backboards.
Coach Bill Perigo's beleaguered
squad, inept in its offense, was not.
without defensive troubles, either.'
Michigan tried the same tight
zone defense that worked so well
against Horace Walker and his
Spartan teammates Saturday. ButJ
the Illini, unlike MSU, are cap-
able of breaking a zone with sharp
outside shooting, which is what
The Wolverines held Illini neme-
sis Mannie Jackson to six points,
but all the other starters for the
home team hit in double figures.
Especially troublesome was Lee
Frandsen, who pushed in 15 points
and led the Illini ball-hawking
Michigan once again played
without the services of captain-
guard Terry Miller, who did not
feel well Sunday. He almost surely
will start when the Wolverines
travel to Iowa for Saturday's cli-
max to a grim season.

two short at the final buzzer.
Walker started the late outburst
with his second goal of the night
at the outset of the final session,
a 35-foot drive from the left face-
off circle. Before he ended the
rout with his third goal at 19:18,
wingers John MacMillan and
Bruce Walker beat Coyle from
Some fans were starting to head
for the exits when defenseman
George Konik drilled a shot from
the point. Walker cut in frmo the
corner and steered the puck past
Coyle from the edge of the crease.
"It was one of our finest games
of the season," admitted Arm-
strong in the noisy Denver dress-
ing room after the game. "Of
course, we're expecting a much
harder time tomorrow night. This
team (Michigan ) can play real
The Michigan locker-room pro-
vided a gloomy contrast. With
three more games to go, Renfrew
is still puzzled by the uhpredict-
able performances and disastrous
letdowns of a team which he said
,,could be great" after .sweeping
the Tech series in January.
While Denver was skating hard
and passing confidentially, the
Wolverines' offense was conspicu-
ous by contrast (or absence) Un-
certainty marked the infrequent
through offensive thrusts, and the
limited defensive success was the
result of frantic individual efforts
rather than team cooperation.

"Playing the way they did to-
night-they're the strongest col-
lege hockey team I've ever seen."
This is what Michigan hockey
coach Al Renfrew had to say for
the Denver Pioneers after watch-
ing his Wolverines get skated into
the ice by the team that is cur-
rently riding atop the standings
of the Western Collegiate Hockey
A quiet coach in a quiet dress-
ing room, Renfrew ruefully shook
his head, "they skated like H."
