... Michigan timbers
By JOHN PAPANEK
Special to the Daily
A TESTY looking Johnny Orr walked out of the Michigan
lockerroom and told the small gathering of reporters exactly
what they had just seen.
"(Bob) Ford and (William) Franklin really took it to us
on offense, didn'tthey?" he asked rhetorically. "That was the
difference in the game."
Purdue's two workhorses pummeled Michigan for'57 points,
nearly all of them coming from the inside, where the Wolverines
are supposed to be one of the strongest teams around. But
Michigan's brutes just weren't up to it yesterday.
6-10 Ken Brady, the biggest man on the court for either
team'was Michigan's high rebounder with nine, while his
man, Franklin, pulled down 20 and scored 28 points.
"We took Brady out for a while in the second half to rest
him," Orr said. "And besides, Franklin was going nuts."
The Wolverines leading rebounder, John Lockard, had his
most disappointing performance of the season, but that was
partly because he was playing on a sore knee suffered in prac-
tice a few days ago. Lockard and Brady missed three layups
each in the first half when the game was close; and those twelve
points could have made the game a whole, different story for
"The first ten minutes, we really had the good shots," said
Orr, whose game plan was to get the ball inside to the big men
and watch Franklin and Ford sluff off. "We just couldn't get
the ball in the basket."
Meanwhile, Ford was scoring like mad, and Ernie Johnson,
trying fruitlessly to stop the stocky 6-7 senior, had the beat
view of it all.
"There was just nothing I could do to stop him," said
the Big E. "He was pushing me around real good, and
getting good position. But it seemed that even when I did
get position, he still got the ball."
The win was a big one for Purdue coach George King. "This
one makes the Big Ten race look a lot better, but there's a long
way to go yet.
"I really didn't expect to dominate Michigan's big men
the way we did. But our guys did a tremendous job. That's been
our problem this year - whether we play a zone or man-to-man
we have trouble getting the ball off the boards. I felt that
Michigan's big scoring average has been due more to their
board game than their running. So we went out to get the boards
The physical tenor of the game took its toll on both teams,
but Michigan was forced to shuttle players around all game.
Henry Wilmore, who started the game at guard, picked up three
fouls by the middle of the first half. He came out with eight
minutes left, and Lockard, who had been resting his knee, came
back in, and played his best ball of the day.
Lockard did manage to fire up the crowd of 13,584 fana-
tic Hoosiers in the closing minutes of the first half, when he
backed into Franklin and sent him flying to the pines. A
minute before, Brady had done the same to Ford, and the
frustrated crowd, watching the last two minutes of the half
go by without either team breaking the 37-37 deadlock,
brought the house down.
But Lockard must have had more than he can handle, be-
cause when the second half started, he was on the bench, and
Wilmore was in his forward spot. Playing in the corner for the
rest of the game, Wilmore came alive and scored 22 of his
"With Henry at forward, we lose a little on the boards," Orr
noted, "but he helps by drawing all those fouls."
In fact, Wilmore was so deadly from the line (12 for 14)
that with about ten minutes left in the game, King decided
to put his Boilermakers back into the 3-2 zone that they played
in the first half.
"We had about seven fouls and Michigan had none.
We felt if we kept fouling, we'd lose the game at the line,
especially with Wilmore shooting like he was," King ex-
But in the end, Orr tried his best to be optimistic. "We're
5-2, that's half the schedule. If we can go 5-2 in the second half,
I think we'll be alright. Things just didn't seem to bounce right
for us today. Everytime we were coming back, we'd miss a shot
or lose the ball.
"I'd like to see a lot of things better, but it's awful hard
to win on the road."

WEST LAFAYETTE - Purdue's
Bob Ford and Bill Franklin de-
stroyed Michigan inside with a
combined 57 points and 32 re-
bounds and led the Boilermakers
to a 84-74 Big Tenbasketball vic-
Ford and Franklin roamed free
under the boards at both ends of
the court for easy layups, short
hooks, and tip-ins, while Wolver-
ine big men Ernie Johnson, Ken
Brady and John Lockard refused
to challenge the Boilermaker duo.
It was a tight contest through
half of the second period. The
score was knotted 37-all at inter-
mission and both teams took small
leads at the start of the sec-

letic Director, replacing Dave

Athletic Director at the Uni-
.versity of Arizona on Feb. 15.
Lund's appointment becomes
effective on March 1.
Purdue slowly but surely pulled
away to a 71-61 lead with 7:31
Michigan closed the gap to five
at 3:48, mainly on the strength of
Henry Wilmore's aggressive foul-
drawing antics, but a late Wol-
verine press was ineffective and
Purdue sank some easy buckets
to end the contest.
A poor display of basketball
opened the game as neither team
seemed to want to keep the ball
or put it in the hoop.
The Wolverines were getting the
ball inside Purdue's zone for good
shots early in the game, but the
layups were not falling in. Michi-
gan managed to blow six layup at-
tempts in the first half alone.

Wilmore and John Lockard got
into foul trouble in the first half
as each drew three personals.
Wilmore sat out the last five and
a half minutes of the period and
only had four points. Lockard was
ineffective both on defense and
offense and sat out the start of
the second half as Wilmore was
shifted to forward.
Wilmore responded by fouling
out Kendrick and drawing four
fouls on his replacement, Bruce
Rose. But Wilmore's foul shoot-
ing and twenty-two second half
points were not enough to keep
Michigan in the game.
The Wolverines encountered in-
creasing difficulty in getting the
ball inside after intermission as
Purdue's defense tightened up.
With Wilmore at forward, Purdue
began to double-team him, but
Michigan couldn't find the open

of the afternoon, worked his way

As a result of Ford's and Frank-

were outrebounded for one of the

Michigan has played. He added,

on offense. I think that was the
difference. Ford did a great job
Ford tallied 29 points and
Franklin added 28 points and
twenty caroms. Wilmore led the
Wolverines with 26 points, thanks
almost entirely to his second-half
barrage, but continues to be pos-
sibly the poorest-shooting All-

Orr summer up the frustrating
game that dropped Michigan's Big
Ten record to 5-2 with this com-
ment: "We made a few mis-
takes when we shouldn't have;
things didn't bounce quite right
when we were coming on; at that
crucial time, they'd score. I think
they (Purdue) played very well.
We're really two strong boarding
teams and I thought Ford and
Franklin were outstanding today."

Hampered by, of all things, a
lack of players, the Michigan icers
nearly squandered a three goal
lead late in the game but hung
on fora 9-6 win over Colorado
College last night.
With only 14 players dressed and
available for duty, Coach Al Ren-
frew's squad completed a sweep
over the Tigers with its second
straight four-point victory to boost
it into an eighth place tie in the
Leading 6-3 with less than 12
minutes remaining in the third
period, Michigan allowed Colorado
to close the gap with a pair of
quick goals, one while the Blue
held a two-man advantage.
But a break-away goal by Bob
Falconer, set up with a brilliant
pass from Julian Nixon, took most
of the pressure off the Wolverine
defense. Even a last minute Tiger
goal, which was offset by two late
Michigan tallies, added little to
Michigan came out skating like
crazy in the first minute of the
opening period, controlling the play
almost exclusively. But it was the
Tigers who scored first when Steve
Sertich deflected a pass into the
Michigan goal on Colorado's first
break into Wolverine territory.
It took only 20 seconds for the
Blue to tie the score, however,
when Rick Mallette fired a wrist
shot over goalie Doug Schum's
left shoulder on a semi-break set
up by Falconer.
Bernie Gagnon tallied his first
of three goals for the night at
5:01 when he backhanded a re-
bound off a Jerry Lefebvre shot
past Schum with Colorado's Bob
Winograd in the penalty box for
Michigan's "Punch" Cartier went
off for charging at 7:20 and the
Tigers would have had a goal if
it weren't for some sloppy stick-
handling around the goal mouth.
But when Gagnon was sent off
elbowing at 9:46, it took only 31
seconds for Colorado's Mike
Bertsch to knot the score at 2-2.
Bertsch backhanded a rebound off
a shot by Doug Palazzari into the
corner of the goal.
Randy Trudeau put the Wolver-
ines ahead once again at 12:30
of the period when his slap shot
from the right point slipped under
Schum's foot and Michigan had
a 3-2 lead at intermission.
Late in the period Frank Wer-
ner missed a chance to add to the
total when he slipped and fell
just after receiving a perfect pass
from Bucky Straub on a two-on-
one break when the Wolverines'

his second goal, with most of
the work being done by Cartier,
