FOUL TROUBLE PLAGUES BLUE

Griffith,

Cards dunk

Wolverine

By DAVE RENBARGER
Special to The Daily
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -, Louisville's
sensational guard Darrell Griffith
single-handedly applied the skids to a
seemingly impossible Michigan
comeback, before lifting the Cardinals
to a pulsating 86-84 victory before a
sold-out andfatisfied throng of 16,613 at
Freedom Hall last night.

the young season for the sixth-ranked
Wolverines, who opened with a pair of
victories at home. Seventh-ranked
Louisville upped its record to 4-1.
Down by a 64-54 margin with less than
13 minutes to play, the Wolverines
faced every sort of adversity
imaginable, but still managed to work
their way back into the game.
With three starters, including their

on the bench with four fouls each, the
Wolverine substitutes sucked it up and
began gaining ground on the explosive
Cardinals. Only one of the five starters
- was on the floor when Mark Bodner and
Johnny Johnson provided the impetus
Michigan needed.
"OUR BENCH did a super job," said
Michigan coach Johnny Orr after the
game. "When McGee and Hubbard
went out, it could have been a blowout.
But they held us in there and gave us a
chance."~
Bodner and Johnson each canned
three critical baskets over the next six
minutes to help boost the visitors to a
71-68 lead. Hubbard and McGee re-
entered the game and Michigan's one
flickering ray of hope suddenly seemed
a lot brighter.
But Griffith was right on the spot to
extinguish it. The junior pogostick took
control of the entire game. He
registered 11 of his team's final 16 poin-
ts, added a big steal and blocked an all-
important layup attempt for good
measure.
DESPITE THE one-man circus,
Michigan hung tough until the very last.
Hubbard, still active inside in spite of
his precarious foul situation, tipped in
his own layup to tie the game at 79 with
three minutes left.

Griffith's ensuing 22-footer found its
mark, and Louisville retained
possession by controlling a jump ball.
Clinging to the flimsy two-point
margin, the Cardinals went into their
deliberate, four corner offense, in-
ducing Johnson to foul Louisville center
Larry Williams.
BUT WILLIAMS, normally a 60 per
cent free throw shooter, connected on
both shots to put Louisville up 83-79 with
1:43 left. Michigan was never closer un-
til the final buzzer.
After the contest, Orr lamented
Williams' unexpected accuracy. "The
turning point was when Williams made
both free throws," he said. "It would
have been a different game if he had
missed."
. But Orr didn't do too much com-
plaining, despite the fact that his team
had just lost the second heartbreaker in
as many years to Louisville, and that
the officials called a total of 29 fouls on
his players.
"There were a lot of fouls and that's a
shame when you lose two great players
like McGee and Hubbard for as long as
we did," said Orr. "It seemed like a lot
of the fouls were minor, but I can't
complain about the refs."

McGee totaled 28 points, 24 of them in
the first half, and Hubbard chipped in
with 19 points and 13 rebounds' in the
game. Both frontcourtmen eventually
fouled out. McGee left with 4:15
remaining and the outcome still very
much in doubt.
With his two superstars out of action,
Orr desperately needed his bench, and
it didn't let him down. Johnson ended
up with 10 points, and ignited

raOrl o 2-2tie
DETROIT (UPI) - Veteran Nick Libett's goal at 45 seconds into the
third period last night lifted the Detroit Red Wings to a 2-2 tie with the
Montreal Canadiens.
For the Canadiens, the single point pulled them 11 points ahead of
second-place Los Angeles in the Norris Division while the Wings moved to
within one point of third-place Pittsburgh in the same division.
Montreal grabbed a 2-0 lead in the opening period on a pair of power play
goals.
Detroit's Thommie Bergman was sitting out a holding penalty when
Yvon Lambert snapped home Pierre Mondou's pass at the edge of the goal
crease past Detroit netminder Rogie Vachon.
Mondou knocked in the second tally while Detroit's Paul Woods was off
for interference, taking Steve Shutt's pass in front of the net after Guy
LaFleur trapped an errant Detroit breakout at 17 : 13.
Dale McCourt scored the first Detroit goal at 3:08 of the second period
when Errol Thompson put him in the clear 25 feet from the Montreal goal
and he beat goalie Ken Dryden cleanly with a hard shot.
Libett beat Dryden from the slot after Vaclav Nedomansky had been
robbed by the Montreal goaltender and recovered his own rebound, flipping
the puck out to Libett.
Rangers 7, Blues 4
NEW YORK (AF) - Phil Esposito scored twice and Steve Vickers had a
goal and two assists last night as the New York Rangers began their second
decade of home domination over the St. Louis Blues with a 7-4 National
Hockey League rout.
Carol Vadnais, Lucien DeBlois and Mike McEwen had two assists each
while Walt Tkaczuk and Anders Hedberg had a goal and an assist apiece to
spark the runaway.

By GARY KICINSKI
Special to the Daily
LOUISVILLE, Ky.-In a game that was at times closer
than the final score indicated, yet sometimes more one-sided
than you would have expected, the Louisville Cardinals
defeated Michigan's women cagers, 76-69, in the prelude to
the men's contest.
The Wolverines, trailing 19-0 at the outset and by 22 at the
half, put on a blazing comeback in the second half to draw to
within a point, but then the Cardinals pulled away, outscoring
Michigan 11-5 in the crucial last three minutes.
"It was unfortunate we gave them such a big spot, because
we completely outplayed them in the second half," said
Michigan coach Gloria Soluk.
Michigan looked disorganized and sluggish in the first half,
committing 22 turnovers and managing only 26 points.
Louisvile, meanwhile, relied on its superior quickness in
shutting out Michigan for the first six and a half minutes. The
Cardinals surged to a 28 point lead at one point and lead 48-26

at the half.
The young women cagers came out running in the second
half, scoring off the fast break and working inside. Fresh-
woman guard Katie McNamara sparked the Wolverines with
her aggressive play, and sophomore Abby Currier and
freshwoman Diane Dietz started hitting.
"Our fast break started working and the shots started'
going in for us in the second half," said Dietz.
Currier's layup with 3:07 remaining brought.Michigan as
close as it was to come, 65-64. From then on the Wolverines
fell back into their first-half habits of turnovers and forced
outside shots.
Currier and Dietz paced Michigan with 20 points each,
while McNamara added 12. Denise Griffith (men's team star
Darrell Griffith's niece) paced Louisville with 17 points.
Soluk explained that the slow start may have been due to
the squad's youth and inexperience.
"Our kids are young and this is such a new thing for them.
Coming out here, playing on the road, in front of all these
people... I'm proudof the comeback they made."
