Volverines Never in Front;
gold Shooting Proves Fatal

By JIM BENAGH
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan's basketball attack
died with a late scoring blight,
and the letdown allowed a good
Drake team to win the Wolver-
ines' home opener, 71-65, last
night.
'The Michigan second half come-
back faltered after the Wolverines
narrowed a 14-point margin early
in the second half to five points
in the last three minutes.
But the, local quintet failed to
take advantage of a half-dozen
recoveries in those waning mo-
ments and took its second defeat
in two games. Drake won its sec-
ond straight.
Pesky Leader
Led by pesky Gus Guydon, a
hollering and hotshot guard, Drake
looked as if it might run away
from Michigan in the first 25 min-
utes.
After see-sawing with Michigan
through the first 10 minutes, the
Bulldogs from Des Moines, Iowa,
pulled' away to a 43-32 lead by
intermission time.
Guydon hit for 13 points in the
initial half and most of the mark-

Halftime score: Drake '43,
Michigan 32i
Orange Rout
Br i 36-8
LOS ANGELES (') - Mighty
Syracuse belted UCLA for a 36-8
victory yesterday and, for the first
time in 71; years of intercollegiate
football, finished the season un-
beaten and untied in 10 games.
In a strong. bid for the national
championship, the top ranked big
Orange team got off to a 14-0 lead
in the first period, boosted it to
21-0 in the second and then beat
back a gallant challenge by the
underdog' Bruins of UCLA.
Syracuse got off to a quick lead
after intercepting ,a pass. It took
nine plays to travel 43 yards, with
a nifty pass for six yards from
quarterback Dave Sarette to Ger-
hard Schwedes put UCLA on the
road to its fourth defeat of the
year.
Syracuse's so-called second team
trooped on to the field and after
a 72-yard thrust that required
seven plays, the Orangemen were
on the scoreboard again. The
touchdown came on a 15-yard pass
from Dick Easterly to Mark Weber
in the end zone.
Early in the second period the
score mounted to 21-0. Easterly,
Weber, John Nichols and Bob Hart
took turns in the drive, ending
when Easterly plunged for the
final yard.
UCLA, with halfback Bill Kil-
mer in the starring role as the
passer, got into the act before the
half ended.
Jim Johnson's great 44-yard
kickoff return started it off and
Kilmer kept it going. He passed to
Gene Gaines for 30 and 13 yards,
and the final 20 to Johnson for the
touchdown.
The late conclusion of the
Midwest Open Gym Meet pre-
vented results to be run in this
issue.

ers came on outside jump shots.
He continued his spree for the
rest of the game and, all in all,
tallied 25 points. He hit on 10 of
14 field goal attempts.
Meanwhile Guydon's major of-
fensive opponent, Michigan's John
Tidwell, was pressured into one of
his worst nights, after a strong
first half.
Unstoppable in First Half
Drake knew Tidwell headed
Michigan's attack but couldn't
stop him as he cut off a screen
and drove in during the first half.
He made three baskets and picked
up six free throws - mostly on
the cut-and-go series.
But visiting coach, Murray
John, charted a defense at half-
time to stop Tidwell. His team
put second-half pressure on the
6'3" junior and limited him to one
goal.
Drake forced Tidwell to shoot
fast instead of with his normal,
easy-moving motions. When the
game was over, the 'Michigan
guard had been successful on only
four of 27 attempts.
But the defeat wasn't only Tid-
well's.
Michigan had several hacking
fouls in its attempts to regain the
ball from Drake and was penal-
ized further for careless fouls.
The personals cost Michigan its
center, Lovell Farris, for the ear-
ly part of the second half as he
went to the bench with four fouls.
And the rest of the team joined
Tidwell in cold shooting. Michigan
finished with a 29.1 percentage
from the floor and made just five
of 13 free throws in the second
half.
Blow Several Chances
Michigan also blew several good
opportunities once it got within
striking distance of Drake In the
last minutes.
Although they were much short-
er than the Bulldogs, Michigan
forwards Farris and Scott Maentz
pulled down several key rebounds.
But the Wolverine quintet failed
to score because of faulty passing
or erratic shots.
Michigan did deserve credit for
its comebacks and, for the most
part, was not discouraged by its
mistakes.
Farris came off the bench to
pace the best of these drives. With
Michigan down 14 points, guards
Rich Robins and Terry Miller
combined for 10 points to narrow
the lead to 51-46.
Farris then re-entered the game
and connected for four quick bas-
kets to keep Michigan in the run-
ning.
Meanwhile, Drake went without
a field goal in the last eight.min-
utes.
But Drake re-organized and be-
gan a stall. Michigan continued
to get the ball, but shabby ball-
handling and shooting prevailed.
A small crowd of 2,900 was on
hand to see the game.

Miss Many Chances
Early in the game the Wolver-
ines missed many great chances
when Young came up with some
impossible saves. He robbed Pat
Cushing and Kelly of apparent
goals before half of the crowd was
even settled in their seats. Kolb
and Bob White also had good
chances, but fired wide as Michi-
gan kept the Tigers bottled up in
their own end with a great display
of forechecking.
However, the tale of frustration
continued and at 13 minutes and
14 seconds Colorado surprised the
Wolverine defense. Bill Goodacre
scored on the short rebound of
Kahoot's drive. Bleakney started
the play from the corner, after
carrying in from center ice.
