MICHIGAN ROMPS IN WCHA OPENER:
Wolverine icers demolish Duluth

Big Ten Advance

By JON WELLS
There are many ways to score goals
in hockey and so the Michigan hockey
team held a seminar on the subject last
night at Yost Arena, drubbing Min-
nesota-Duluth, 11-6.
Defense was a dirty word right from
the start as the two teams tallied a total
of nine goals in the first period. Fresh-
man Wolverine center Bruno Baseotto
was the dominant figure in the scoring
barrage with a hat trick in the opening
frame, his second of the young season.
BASEOTTO'S FIRST goal came just
under four minutes into the first period
and tied the game, 1-1. The prolific
freshman, positioned perfectly at the
right goal post, slid the puck into the
deserted net after Murray Eaves and
Dan Lerg had attempted to jam the
puck past UMD goalie Bill Perkl.
Michigan's third and fourth goals
were also scored by Baseotto, snapping
a 2-2 deadlock and brgaking the game
wide open.
BULLETIN
NEW YORK-Wilfredo Gomez of
Puerto Rico retained his World Boxing
Council super-bantamweight title here
last night by stopping Nico Perez of
Mexico in the fifth round of a scheduled
15-round bout.

Baseotto s hat trick,
Lerg, May pace Blue

Both goals were tip-in shots from the
point and came within one minute and
twenty seconds of each other. The' first
was a redirection of a Tim Manning
blast from the left point when Michigan
had a one-man advantage. Baseotto's
third and final goal came when he got a,
very small pieceof John Blum's slap-
shot from the right point.
BASEOTTO, WHO now leads the
Wolverines with 13 points in just three
games, remained soft-spoken concer-
ning his achievements. "I feel great.
I'm happy just playing," he said.
While Baseotto was demonstrating
the tip-in, the rest of the Michigan team
was teaching the ;Bulldogs further
scoring lessons. The second Wolverine
goal came when Dan Lerg fed doe
Milburn streaking in on the left wing on
a two-on-one break. Milburn beat the
beleaguered Perkl with a wrist shot
high and to the short side.
The first period ended with Michigan
ahead 6-3 on the power of a pair of break-
aways by Lerg (two goals, two assists)
and Dennis May (two goals).
In the second period, the Blue icers
added another goal to their leading

Bruno Baseotto

margin, outscoring the Bulldogs 3-2.
Captain Doug Todd knocked in a per-
fect pass from the corner off the stick of
freshman Julio VanBiesbruck. May
and Lerg followed Todd, May's goal
coming in rather spectacular fashion
when the sophomore right wing dove

flat out of bang a rebound past the
sprawling Duluth netminder.
JEFF MARS and Brad Tippett closed
out the scoring in the third period. Tip-
pett, as well as displaying tremendous
hustle throughout the game, showed
that he had a few flashy moves when he
left a Duluth defenseman and goalie
grasping at thin aair on a rush from
center ice.
Freshman goalie Paul Fricker was
not exactly sharp in the Michigan net,
giving up five goals in two periods.
According to head coach Dan Farrell,
Fricker had a bad case of the flu and
was pulled after the second period for
this reason.
The victory last night has to be en-
couraging for the Wolverines, as not
only did they beat a team that finished
fourth in the WCHA last season, but
they also showed that they can score
some goals, which was a big problem
last year. The added spark to the offen-
se has undoubtedly originated from the
surprisingly good play of the freshman
forwards. Baseotto's nose for the net
and Tippett's scrappy play have been a
shot in the arm to the Blue attack.

SAVES

By ERIC LUTTINEN
It's the fifth week of the Big Ten
season and, as usual, a "race for the
roses" is developing between
Michigan and Ohio State, although
Indiana and Purdue still have an
outside shot at the title.
The Buckeyes host the slumping
Michigan State Spartans in Colum-
bus in the top game on this week's
Big Ten schedule. MSU last defeated
the Bucks in 1974, although that was
in East Lansing. The last Spartan
triumph in Columbus was in 1971.
Coach Darryl Rogers said
sophomore Bryan Clark, will open at
quarterback on Saturday. Clark,
who played in the second half of last
week's 14-7 loss to Purdue, com-
pleted 11 of 20 passes for 166 yards.
"This (Ohio State) is an extremely
fine team, better than Purdue by
far," said Rogers at a Monday press
conference. "Ohio State has many
more offensive threats (than
r x
Michigan), especially at quarter-
back. Art Schlichter has got to be the
number one quarterback in our con-
ference, period. Schlichter is as fina
a young quarterback as I have ever
seen."
At the Columbus press luncheon,
Coach Earle Bruce said that his
team's injury situation is improving
with each week, although tailbacks
Ricky Johnson and Calvin Murray
are doubtful for the remainder of the
season. It seems that Ohio State is
always deepest at the positions
where injuries crop up.
Illinois gave Michigan all it could
handle in the first half of last weeks
game, before bowing to the
Wolverines, 27-7. This week the
Illinois defense will have to concern
itself with Minnesota's fine passing
game, rather than the Wolverines'
running attack.
The Minnesota offense is directed
by senior signal-caller Mark
Carlson, who was named the Big

Ten's offensive player of the week
by the Associated Press and United
Press International. In the Gophers'
24-7 win over Iowa last weekend,
Carlson threw touchdown passes of
50 and 57 yards to Elmer Bailey and
completed 14 of 17 attempts on the
day. Carlson leads the Big Ten in
passing, completing 61.7 per cent of
his aerials for 1,052 yards and six
touchdowns.
The unpredictable Wisconsin
Badgers host the Iowa Hawkeyes,
hoping to rebound from last week's
thrashing by Ohio State. Wisconsin
relies greatly on its defense,
although last week's game was no
indication of this fact. The Badgers
to watch on defense are linebacker
Dave Ahrens, defensive end Buy
Boliaux, and safety David Green-
wood.
The Hawkeyes, much improved
under new head coach Hayden Fry,
have a 2-2 conference record. Dennis
Mosley is the Big Ten's leading
rusher with an average of 125.5 yar-
ds per game, while quarterback Phil
Suess has completed 52.9 per cent of

his passes, fifth best in the conferen-
ce.
The "Mildcats" of Northwestern
have played their typical season to
date, losing all five of their con-
ference games. There have been few
bright spots for the 'Cats, but one
plus factor has been the play of Mike
Kerrigan at quarterback. Kerrigan
is filling in for the injured Kevin
Strasser.
Purdue ,is paced by junior Mark
Herrmann, who is ranked second in
Big Ten passing. The Boilermaker
offense revolves around the play of
Herrmann, while the defense has
given up only 72 points in four con-
ference games, third best in the con-
ference.

Sharp Spurs top Pistons

Michigan icers John Olver (16), Tim Manning (4) and Murray Eaves (17) face off in a WCIIA contest against Denver
last year. In Michigan's WCHA home opener at Yost Arena last night the Wolverines bombed Minnesota-Duluth, 11-6,
to captue their third consecutive victory without a loss.
Clubbers overcome weather jinx-;
sun shines bright on M'victory

By BOB EMORY
The sun came out gloriously yester-
day in time for the field hockey game
between Michigan and Northern
Michigan, which is technically a bad
omen for the Wolverines, but they
managed to overcome their fear of good
weather as they calmly disposed of the
Wildcats, 2-0, raising their record to 11-
7-1.
Strange as it may seem, the
Wolverines have developed a habit of
playing their best hockey in the worst
weather imaginable - like rain and
slop, for instance.

T HE CURRENT tally shows four
wins and no losses for the Wolverines
under depressing conditions, with the
latest such victory coming last week in
the bitter cold and howling winds of that
prairie town known as Mt. Pleasant.
Michigan defeated Central Michigan
that day, 3-1, an impressive road win
against one of the best teams in the
state.
So when the sun came darting out
yesterday, there was naturally cause
for apprehension among the Wolverines'
since most of their seven losses have
come in the sun.

"We just love the rain," was ,what
Coach Candy Zientek said a few weeks
ago. Yesterday, however, there was no
rain but there was a victory
nonetheless, Michigan's fourth in a
row.
The game came down to which squad
had the better skills, as the Wildcats
were running step-for-step with the
Wolverines and even beating them to
the ball most of the afternoon. Solid
fundamentals - good stick work, ac-
curate passing, positioning and con-
sistency - finally prevailed for
Michigan. The fact that goaltender
Laura Pieri stopped all 17 shots didn't
hurt the situation much either.
MARTY MAUGH scored once in the
first half and once in the second half,
taking care of the scoring for the day.
The shutout was Pieri's seventh of the
season (surpassing the old mark of six)
and 20th of her career, far more than
any other Michigan goalie.
Speaking of records, Michigan has
now scored more goals in one season
than any previous squad, and Mary
Callam, the scoring machine, is rapidly
approaching Dawn Kohut's single
season scoring record of 25 goals.
Callum has 20.
CLUBBER NOTES: Following their
disastrous performance in the Big Ten
Championships (two losses, no wins
and no prizes) the Wolverines went on

Special to the Daily
PONTIAC - Detroit native George
Gervin did it again last night, notching
41 points in leading his run-and-gun San
Antonio Spurs to a 129-113 victory over
the Pistons in the Silverdome. The win
lifted the 4-2 Spurs into first place in the
NBA's Central Division, while 4-4
Detroit dropped back into third place..
The Pistons hung with San Antonio
for much of the game. At the end of the
third quarter, the visitors led by only
three, 88-85. But from that point the
Spurs' running ganme proved too much
for them.
"Our game plan was to work the ball
and get off good shots," said Detroit
coach Dick Vitale. "But when you fall
behind by six or seven points, that's
when they get you." Detroit did fall
behind by that much and more, when a
combination of Piston turnovers and
three straight lay-ups by Mark Olber-
ding expanded the San Antonio lead to
19 points at the beginning of the fourth
quarter.
At this point the Pistons attempted to
press, which forced them into San An-
tonio's running game, and as Vitale
noted, "We just can't run up and down
the floor with them."
The Pistons couldn't find anyone who
could run up and down the floor with
Gervin either.
The NBA's Iceman hit a dazzling
array of jumpers, double-pump lay-ups
and stuffs on his way to setting a new
Silverdome scoring record of 41 points.
"Personally, I feel very proud, espe-
cially since 'the performance came

New York Yankee owner George

distraught over Billy Martin's latest
altercation. So upset is King George, in
fact, that it may even be time to bounce
Billy the Kid.
Martin, who nearly lost his job for
good last year for slugging a Reno, Nev.
sports writer, split the lip of an Illinois
man Tuesday night during a fracas in a
hotel lobby in Bloomington, Minn., ac-
cording to a report from a security
guard at the hotel.
STEINBRENNER was quoted
yesterday in Florida as saying that
Martin "is supposed to turn the other
cheek', when he gets into volatiie
situtions. "He promised he would."
Steinbrenner added, "We just can't
have him getting into these things
every two months. It's not good for'the
Yankee organization."
In New York, baseball Commissioner
Bowie Kuhn said his office was in-
vestigating the incident "to find out all
