16TH DEFEAT IN LAST 17 TRIES
Badger dekers bounce Blue, 6-4
By BILLY SAHN
The Michigan icers danced the night
away last night at Yost Ice Arena, but
left the floor in defeat. The Wolverine
Hustle just couldn't compete with the
Badger' Bounce, as Wisconsin beat
With the- game tied 4-4 at the start of
the third period, defenseman Bob Suter
of Wisconsin shot the puck by Michigan
goalie Rudy Varvari on a two-on-one
break. The go-ahead power play goal
came 44 seconds into the third period.
SUTER'S GOAL was all Wisconsin
needed as they went in front of the
Wolverines 5-4. But, with Varvari off
the ice and six Blue icers pressuring
Wisconsin goal keeper Roy Schultz for a
tying score, Badger Dave Speer shot
the puck down the ice. It glided into the
empty Wolverine net at 19:31, thus icing
the Wisconsin victory.
"Schultz had a hot hand,"-com-
mented Badger coach Bob Johnson.
"He looked good tonight, as he did last
night (in.the Badgers' 8-3 victory)."
The game was a hard-hitting match,
with both teams spending 30 minutes in
the penalty box. The intense play was
exhibited most during the second
Down 3-0 at the end of one period,
Michigan employeddthe Wolverine
Hustle, to tie the gafne up after 40
minutes of play.
THE WOLVERINES wasted no time
at the start of the second stanza,
scoring their first goal 29 seconds into
the. period. Defenseman Tim Manning
notched a power play goal on a slap shot
from just inside the'blue line.
However, Wisconsin quickly respon-
ded as Rod Romanchuk tallied his four-
th goal of the night at 16:21, knocking in
Then at 5:27 into the period, captain
Mark Miller of Michigan scored the
icers' second goal of the night.
Breaking loose for a one-on-one
situation, Miller faked, pumped, and
scored unassisted against Badger net-
Following the example set by his cap-
tain, Bill Wheeler challenged Schultz
and scored for the Wolverines. The
goal, coming at 8:05 on a centering
pass, made the scoreboard read 4-3.
STILL PRESSING, the Wolverines
tied up the game four all when Dennis
May banged the puck in hard at 13:31.
The score Icame on a one-on-one fast
break down the ice.
Unfortunately, the heated action
during the second period caused one
crunching blow. Wolverine left wing
Jeff Tessier was cheoked by Badger
Theran Welsh, and fell immediately to
the ice. He was taken to the hospital
with a torn ligament in the knee, and is
out for the year according to coach Dan
"We're not consistent," remarked
Farrell. Farrell's complaint comes in
reference to the team's excellent play
during the second period, but relatively
poorplay during the rest of the game.
THE WOLVERINES' sloppy play
was' most evident during the first
period. Duing this stanza, Badger
wing Romanchuk scored a hat trick.
His three tallies compared to the
Wolverines' zero did little to aid the
Badgers Jim Scheid and Ron Griffin
combined with Romanchuk for all of
the scoring honors in that period.
Scheid assisted on each of the first-
period goals while Griffin helped out on
two of them.
Blue women edged
by last-second shot

As heartbreaking ballgames go, this one was tops. Unforunately, it
was the Michigan women's basketball team that was left with bitter
The cagers ran neck and neck against a tough Michigan State squad but
were beaten at the buzzer yesterday,78-77 at Crisler Arena.
Michigan, now 11-11, pulled ahead with less than one minute left to play,
77-74, on two sets of free throws by Diane Dietz and Brenda Venhuizen. But
Michigan State freshwoman Debbie Traxinger added two of her own with 44
seconds left to make it 77-76.
State regained possession a short time later and had an inbounds play
under the Michigan basket with seven seconds left. After the Spartans put up
two missed shots, Traxinger again stepped into the hero role by frantically
grabbing a rebound and putting up a shot, which wobbled on the rim and fell
in at the buzzer to ice it for the Spartans (12-9).
''Our strategy was that if the shot went up and missed, crash the boards
for a rebound," said Spartan coach Karen Langeland. "Debbie's a guard,
but she's used to rebounding because she was a forward in high school. She's
been doing it all year for us."
Both teams boasted a potent offensive attack, althoughthe Wolverines'
man-to-man defense held State in check throughout most of the afternoon.
Midway through the fast-paced first half, Michigan began to pull away.
Thanks to 10 first-half points by Venhuizen and the hot. shooting of Abby
Currier, Michigan's lead stretched to 10 points.
State began to catch up late in the first half, howeverLed by forward
Lorraine Hyman, the Spartans had pulled withi two before being held off by
the Wolverine defense. The half ended with Michigan on top 42-34.
Balanced scoring attacks came from both sides in the second half. Dietz
came out to score most of her game-leading 20 points, and.State countered
with Mary Kay Intyre and Nanette Gibson, who each tallied 14 points.
But it was the rebounds that kept the Spartans in the game. With the help
of an amazing 21 rebounds by Gibson, State dominated the boards as the two
teams exchanged the lead until the final second.
"We played a good game," said Michigan coach Gloria.Soluk. "We ran
our offense, and I felt like we did pretty good on our man-to-man."
Rounding out the Wolverine scoring was Currier with 15 points and
Venhuizen, who played one of her best games of the year, with 14. The
Spartans also had three other players in double figures, including Laurie
Reynolds with 14, Gale Valley with 13, and Hyman with 10.
Michigan's next home game is against Eastern Michigan tomorrow
night at 7: 00 at Crisler.

Women tankers capture 4th Big Ten title

The Michigan women's swim team
continued its Big Ten "dynasty" last
night at Matt Mann Pool, winning its
fourth championship is as many years.
Coach Stu Isaac isn't getting bored with
"Every one is a little special in its
own way," he said after the meet. "It
was the best Big Ten meet there's ever
been. Right from top to bottom it was
really close. It's fantastic for Big Ten

POOL OR conference records were
broken in 20 of the 22 swimming events
over the last three nights. Michigan
outscored second-place Indiana 1098.5-
710.5 for' the title. "It's obvious that in
Big Ten men's and women's swimming,
Michigan and Indiana are the two
powers," commented Isaac.
Sue Collins was the sole individual
winner for the Wolverines last night,
with a victory lin the 50-yard butterfly.
The 400-yard freestyle relay team of
Kim Olson, Katy McCully, Collins, and
Mary Rish completed the Blue's sweep
of all relay events.
The big race of the evening for Isaac
was the 1650-yard freestyle. "I'll
probably remember Lori Hughes' 1650
for the rest of my coaching career. She
went out and swam the best race of her
career." Hughes finished second int he
race after leading most of the way with
a time of 17:20.22. Marie Palko took two
seconds for the women, in the 200-yard
breaststroke and the 100-yard IM.
Michigan also dominated the three-
meter event, with Barb Weinstein, Julie
Bachman, and Ann McDivitt finishing
second, third, and fourth, respectively.

in her quest for a tenth Big Ten title,

The Michigan women gymnasts fell
prey to the "lookingahead" syndrome
at Bowling Green yesterday, and the
Falcons took full advantage of it to
sweep the Wolverines and Miami(0.)
in a triangular meet.i
It was to be a tuneup for the Blue
tumblers before next weekend's
SMAIAW state championships, but the
Wolverines (21-3) let some lethargy
creep into their routines. A more en-
thusiastic Falcon squad rolled up a
130.45 point total, with Michigan
narrowly behind at 128.35 and the
Reskins far back with a 106.35 tally.
"We looked a little tired out there,"
SWEATERS 25-50% off'
said Wolverine coach Scott Ponto.
"There weren't any real strategic
mistakes," he continued. "They (the
team) just haven't had any rest. I think
we'll rest everybody for a short time
before the state meet."
Amid the rather dismal performance
were some bright spots. Freshman
Cindy Shearon used a new tumbling
pass on her floor exencise routine,
finishing with a 8.15 third-place score.
And Laurie Miesel came through 'with
her best balance beam performance of
the season, grabbing second place with
an 8.1 mark.
But the Wolverine all-arounders, the
pillars of success throughout the cam-
paign, failed to gain the high marks
necessary for victory. Only Sara Flom
(32.5) and Mia Axon (31.2), broke into
the top five, claiming second and fifth
