Special To The Daily
SOUTH B3END - Michigan's
freshman basketball team, led by
Joe Johnson with 32 points, knock-
ed off the Notre Dame freshman
89-77 last night.
John Kantner's free throw with
13:27 remaining in the first half
put the Wolverines in front to stay
at 11-10. The freshmen reeled off
three quick baskets and moved out
to a 17-11 lead.
Johnson hit for 14 first half points
and the Baby Blue went to the
locker room with a 47-32 halftime
lead.
Campy Russell, who finished
with 24 points for the game, had
a poor first half, having six of his
shots blocked and finishing with
10 points.
Frosh five fantastic

Michigan came out in the first
half with a zone press which seem-
ed to have the Irish confused
throughout the first 20 minutes.
Coach Dick Honig, who used the
maneuver extensively for the first
time last night said, "The key to
the game was the first half zone
press, they couldn't adjust to it."
Late in the first half the Mich-
igan frosh were sparked by Bill
Ayler, who had three tip-ins and
finished the half with eight points.
For the game Ayler had 12 points
and a dozen rebounds. Russell led
the Wolverines with 14 caroms..
The Irish were led in scoring by
Gary Brokaw with '28 points, and
in rebounding by Pete Crotty with
14.

At the beginning of the second
half, Michigan increased its lead
to 58-36 as Russell hit for two
baskets and then hit Johnson with
a sharp pass that went for two.
Michigan maintained a comfort-
able lead throughout the second
half and the outcome was really
never in doubt.
The Wolverines had a degree of
trouble midway in the second half
on their own offensive boards,
which Honig attributed to fatigue.
He used basically a six man team,
with Johnson and Russell playing
essentially the entire game.
When the first string was pulled
with 1:27 left in the contest, the
score stood at 87-72; as Honig was
reluctant to go to his bench until
very late in the contest.
