BASEOTTO, FRICKER KEY SIXTH STRAIGHT WIN:
Michigan icers n G hes, 3-2

..,..-

By BOB EMORY
It was muscle versus finesse, and this
weekend, anyway, muscle won all the
battles, the war and both hockey
games.
Last night at Yost Arena, the hard-
hitting, aggressive, although choppy,
Wolverines roughed their way to a 3-2
victory over the slick-passing, swift-
skating Minnesota Golden Gophers.
The victory completed a two-game
Michigan sweep over the defending
NCAA champions, the first time that's
happened since the fall of 1977. More
importantly, the win left last year's last
place WCHA team with a perfect 6-0
record, and all of a sudden, a team that
was just trying to make the playoffs is
talking seriously about winning the
league crown.
But don't mention that to Coach Dan
Farrell, not just yet, anyway. He would
prefer to remain cautiously optimistic
at this point. "No, it's way too early to
talk about that," he said. "With only
one-sixth of the season gone, it's just too
hard to say how we'll play the rest of
the year. Except for that Bowling

Green game, we haven't gone on the
road yet."
NONETHELESS, it would be difficult
for anyone not to be optimistic about
this team after the way they've played
so far. Although Minnesota took the
play to the Wolverines much of the
night, they refused to give in to the
pressure. "We played very well, solid
all the way around," said Farrell.
"Everybody played well, we were
strong as a group, and that's what you
need to win."
That is an accurate assessment of
last night's game. Paul Fricker, the
freshman netminder who plays like a
four-year veteran, made several key
saves, especially late in the game when
the Gophers were doing everything but
cheat to try to tie the score. The defense
played a solid game from start to finish,
something that Ias been hard for the
rearguard to do in the past. Tim Man-
ning spearheaded several offensive
rushes with his accurate passing and
John Blum, Mark Perry and Brian
Lundberg did a creditable job of
clearing men from out in front of the
Michigan net.

AND THE OFFENSE was again
spelled B A S E O T T O as the
freshman, Bruno, notched his 11th and
12th goals of the young season by doing
what he does best - placing himself in
the right spot at precisely the right
time.
His first goal came late in the first
period with the Gophers ahead 2-0.
Blum had let go a hard drive from the
point that Baseotto simply redirected
through the pads of Minnesota netmin-
der Paul Butters.
Bruno tied the score just 48 seconds
into the second period when Manning's
attempted pass into the corner bounced
off the boards and came bouncing right
out onto Baseotto's stick. Bruno hap-
pened to be right in front of the net at
the time, and he flipped a shot that went
in off the crossbar.
Goals by Mike Reilly and Kevin Har-
tzell gave Minnesota a 2-0 lead before
Baseotto closed the gap.
Thethird period is when things got
hectic, especially for the 3,624 Michigan
rooters, who were screaming "Go
Blue" with a ferocity usually reserved

with the

Crowd Pleaisers

for Michigan Stadium on Saturday af-
ternoon.
The Gophers kept coming and
coming, but Fricker kept the door shut
with clutch saves and the defense was
swarming every Minnesota player that
came near the puck. Finally, the buzzer
rang and Michigan was sitting all alone
atop the WCHA.
Brunissimo!

BENEFIT FOR THE OLYMPICS

SPOR TS OF THE DAILY

Houston outlasts
By STAN BRADBURY
Special to The Daily
PONTIAC - The Detroit Pistons are slumping. There's no
doubt about that after they lost their fourth consecutive game
last night, 114-11, in the Silverdome to the Houston Rockets.
Three of-the four losses have been at home and last night
marked the Rockets' first road win in seven attempts. To
compound their misery, the Pistons' last two losses have
been dealt by Central Division foes.
The loss puts the Pistons at 4-7 for the year, while the
struggling Houston club improved to 3-7, last in the Central
Division.
Center Moses Malone led the Rocket attack, tallyipg 25
points and grabbing 14 rebounds. Robert Reid also had a big
hand in Houston's victory, tying Detroit's Bob McAdoo for
game honors with 26 points. Bob Lanier added 24 in the losing
cause.
Piston coach Dick Vitale blamed last night's loss on the
inconsistency of his rookies, "but the organization now has
the talent. All we need is experience," he sai4.
Houston dominated the game with three quarters, but the
Pistons made a show of it in the fourth period before Calvin
Murphy scored the last four points of the game for the vic-
tory.
Houston led by 12 points late in the third period before the
Pistons woke up. Detroit then managed to go ahead in the

sagging Pistons
next six minutes of play as McAdoo got the hot hand.
McAdoo's goal, with 9:13 left in the game, put Detroit
ahead for the first time, 97-96. The game then see-sawed back
and forth with the lead changing hands seven times before
the final buzzer sounded.
Harriers place third
By JOHN FITZPATRICK
A young Michigan cross-country squad came away from
the Big 10 championship meet at OSU yesterday with a
satisfying third place finish, as Wisconsin barely defended its
team title with 56 points. Indiana had 59 points and Michigan
75.
Pre -race favorite Jim Stinzi of Wisconsin was barely edged
out for the individual title by Ohio State's Steve Crane,
23:27.9 to 23:29.0 for the eight-kilometer course. Wolverine
Dan Heikkinen placed a close third in 23:31.
"Heikkinen ran a super race", said Michigan coach Ron
Warhurst. "He was just nipped at the end by Stinzi and Crane
over the last 200 yards. He just needs some more experience
up front."
Wolverine freshman Brian Diemer ran a poised race to
finish tenth overall in 24:04. "He ran very well; he was the
first freshman to finish," noted Warhurst.
By finishing in the top five, Michigan qualified for the
NCAA regional meet, to be held at MSU this Saturday.
