LAST NIGHT'S victory over Iowa was easily the most encourag-
ing game the Michigan basketball team has played this year.
It was a tight, exciting contest, which the Wolverines came back
to win.
It was a contest that they could have easily lost. They were
down and both Henry Wilmore and Ken Brady had four fouls.
But they got tough with a little help from the bench and in
doing so showed more spirit than ever before.
Two players that haven't spent much time on the court
lately came in and did commendable jobs. Steve Bazelon
hasn't had much luck this season. In the nine games he
appeared in he picked up almost as many fouls as points.
He only got three points against Iowa, all from the free
throw line, but he didn't foul anybody and handled the ball
well. Though credited with only one rebound his muscular
presence helped under the boards.
But the real surprise was Greg Buss. He entered the game
with the Wolverines down by 10, 54-44, and though he didn't
score any points his presence sparked the team. Michigan
outscored Iowa 12-2 for the next few minutes and pulled back
to a 56-56 tie. ,
"Buss was tremendous," commented Johnny Orr. "He'll
certainly play more now. We called on him and he played hard."
Buss didn't think his performance was all that special. He
felt all along that he could do the job but seems to feel that Orr
didn't have much confidence in him. "I think they were possibly
a bit reluctant to use me," he commented, "but I think this
might help."
Actually he was glad just to get the chance. "It feels
good any time I can help," he said. "It's a great feeling
just to play." And he doesn't think that last night made
him a hero. "Some of the regulars just didn't have a good
night," he noted. "But any time you can get help off the
bench it's good. Playing on Tuesday and Saturday is rough
on the starters." Maybe with the solid performances by
Buss and Bazelon, Orr will give them more rest in the future.
Bazelon came in when Brady got his fourth foul and if he
can keep spelling the big center it will help. Brady continues to
recover from his injury, but it was obvious that his timing is
still off. He missed several shots from close in and showed a
general reluctance to shoot when he had a shot. Part of the
problem might have been mental last night. Orr commented
that "Brady seemed to be more concerned with pushing than
playing."
Henry Wilmore also seemed to be having his problems. He
just doesn't seem to' show his usual aggressiveness when he
plays guard. "Henry doesn't go to the basket," Orr noted. "He's
not really busting it back there. He loses his quickness and
operates at three-quarter speed."
Wilmore also got himself into foul trouble needlessly.
He wasn't assigned to guard the Hawkeyes hot shot Rick
Williams but he often switched off on to him and picked up
penalties. "Henry wanted to show he could guard him," Orr
explained. But Williams got 26 points In the first half and
looked unstoppable until Wayne Grabec put the clamps
on him in the second half.
However, Wilmore showed his old spark late in the second
half as he returned to the contest with four fouls. Playing his
old forward position he soht well, forced the Hawks to foul him,
and converted his free throws.
But it was Grabiec that led the attack. He had not shown
his previous year's shooting touch this season, but last night
it returned with a vengance. Grabiec scored a career high 31
points. "Grabiec's a good shooter," beamed Orr. "He's been tight
this year but he was loose tonight. He drove to the basket and
that's what you've got to do when you're tigh."
Upset because a newspaper would dare criticize the
mighty' Wolverines, Grabee refused to talk to any Daily
reporters, but it was overheard that he spent the afternoon
loosening up in the gym. His work must have paid off be-
cause although his understanding of newspapers if off his
shot isn't. Hopefully last night's performance will give him
the confidence to shoot with the promise he showed all last
season.
However his gunning was almost overshadowed by the show
Williams put on. It looked like everything he threw up was
guaranteed to hit the basket. Orr called him "about the best
shooter I've seen. He's out of sight, that guy." But at the end
Williams started forcing shots and he missed when it counted.
John Lockard played another strong game and his strength
on the backboards was a decisive factor. He snapped down 14
to lead Michigan and match Iowa center Kevin Kunnert. Hawk-
eye coach Dick Schultz thought that "the difference in the game
was that we lost the backboards."
Part of the reason for the Wolverine dominance was
Kunert's absence. He was off on the bench with four fouls,
a fate that hampered many of the Hawkeyes. Orr admitted

that having Kunnert on the bench helped matters.
But he felt Michigan deserved to win anyway. "We almost
lost it at the end," he admitted, recognizing that his team once
again had trouble with a press, "but we deserved to win."
Orr was proud of the fact his team won even though it
has played better. "It's not a bad team when you don't play real
good and still win," he claimed. But he won't be able to make
the same claim this Saturday. If the Wolverines don't play
"real good" against Ohio, then Orr won't be very proud.

Iowa's cagers, controlling most
of the game, led by six at inter-
mission and by ten early in the
second half, but Michigan, sparked
by Wayne Grabiec's career high
31 points, struggled back to con-
quer the tough 'Hawkeyes, 90-86
last night at Crisler Arena.
Grabiec's finest night in a
Wolverine uniform was an all
around performance as he did an
efficient job on Iowa's shooting
ace, Rick Williams, and added
eight rebounds to the Wolverine
cause.

Williams was putting in anything
from anywhere. Michigan coach
Johnny Orr after the game called
Williams, "the best shooter I've
ever seen."
Michigan's brief three point first
half lead quickly evaporated when
Henry Wilmore tallied his third
personal foul at 6:15 and was re-
placed by Dave Hart, and Ken
Brady recorded his third personal
to get a premature rest. Iowa then
pulled away to its 45-39 half time
lead.

Utilizing the fast break and fine board controll
on the first half, the undefeated Michigan fresh-
man cagers blasted Genessee Junior College, 105-
84. The victory was the Wolverines' seventh o
straight.
Paced by forward Campy Russell (who scored
a game high 33 points) and guard Joe Johnson,a
Michigan was in front virtually the entire game1
and blitzed to a 22-6 lead at the 7:30 mark of the
first half. From then on, the Bears posed no
serious threat as the Wolverines coasted to thei
win.1
Frequently, Genessee could not his the basket
and was caught flatfooted as Russell, Doug Ash-1
worth and C. J. Kupec swept the rebounds and
whipped them down court to assist in the easy1
points for Michigan.
Desperately trying to cool down the rapid tem-
po, the Bears employed a backcourt press and
for a short while it seemed to be a successful1
tactic.
With the pressure being applied, the Wolver-i
ines were forced into several turnovers and
Genessee narrowed a deficit that at one point

was 34-6 to 45-28 with three and a half.minutes
left in the half.
However, Campy Russell countered .'with sa
jumper from the outside a few moments later
and led an 8-2 Michigan tear that all but ended
the effectiveness of the Bear's defensive maneuver.
"We didn't react well to the zone press," ex-
plained Head Coach Dick Honig, "because we
hadn't been confronted with it so far this seasdn
and weren't used to it. We're a club that .always
presses but is never pressed. However, I was glad
to see it executed and we'll have -to work on it
in practice."
Nevertheless, Honig insisted his team's fast
break was getting better . and, they; used it well
as Michigan went into -the locker room with ?a
58-35 halftime lead. Russell and Johnson, led
the Wolverines with 15 and I3 'points;espedtively.
The second half was no more pleasant for Gen-
essee, as the Baby Blue scored :17 of the first 21
points, with Russell displaying some-fancy shoot-
ing for eight of them. For about the next five
minutes, both teams played on fairly equal terms
with John Gillian, guard, the most consistent
Gennesse scorer as he finished with 22 points.

ALL-STAR CLASH
Bruins' tally powers East to win

JANUARY

CLEARANCE'

ST. PAUL - MINNEAPOLIS WP)
-Scoring champion Phil Esposito
and Bobby Orr combined for the
winning goal last night, ending
personal All-Star Game scoring
droughts and leading the East
Division to a 3-2 victory over the
West in the 25th renewal of the
National Hockey League's midsea-
son classic.
Esposito and Orr, whose scoring
explosiveness has dominated the
NHL in recent seasons, accounted
for the winner with just 69 seconds
gone in the final period of the na-
tionally televised game that at-
tracted a crowd of 15,685 to the

ton teammate into the West zone
and Esposito made no mistake
with a pinpoint shot for the game-
winner.
The goal was Esposito's first
All-Star point in five of these
-games and Orr, playing inthis
fourth, picked up his first point
with the assist.
Bobby Hull, who hustled all night
long, put the West on the score-
board with just under three min-
utes left in a somewhat listless
first period.
Chicago teammates Pit Martin
and Chico Maki combined to get
the puck to Hull about 20 feet in
front of Ken Dryden, the East's
starting goalie from Montreal.
Hull teed off and Dryden never
had a chance.
With the second period just 71

seconds old, the West scored again,
this time on a spectacular effort
by Philadelphia's Simon Nolet.
Dennis Hull, Bobby's brother,
sent Nolet into the East zone with
a pass but Dallas Smith of Boston
was checking the little Flyer
skater efficiently. Nolet bore in
anyway and fired a back-hander
that caught the far corner behind
Dryden.
That made it 2-0 and the East
needed a goal to get back in the
game. New York's Jean Ratelle
provided it 21/2 minutes later. Ra-
telle, fore-checking well, was in
the right spot when Rod Gilbert hit
him with a pass to the left of
Chicago's Tony Esposito.
Ratelle snapped a shot that
caught the upper corner behind
Esposito's right shoulder.
