White-knuckle basketball came back to Crisler Arena last
night, but Jim Dutcher was a little sick about the whole thing.
The. Eastern Michigan coach threw everything at Michigan-
man-to-man, various zones (3-2, 2-3 and 1-2-1-1), zone press-but
to no avail. Eastern's All-America guard Lindell Reason ripped
the tape off his throbbing wrist and flipped in 21 points, in a lost
cause. Michigan lost its poise against the zone press, and looked
tired at times, but the Wolverines ended up on top..
Eastern had Michigan on the run In the first half with a
beautifully-eiecuted 1-2-1-1 sone, as skinny 6.5 junior Len
Cole hounded Henry Wilmore and Wouldn't let hinst inside.
Wilmore was forced to throw up long bombs and, unfor-
tunately, his shooting was off. Michigan's other one-hiller,
Wayne Grabiec, also couldn't find the hoop from the outer
limits In the first half.
But nobody is going to keep the lid on Wilmore for very long:
he began getting inside and drawing fouls from Eastern. "Wil-
more broke up the zone," commented Dutcher. "We don't have
much depth and we were afraid of getting in foul trouble."
And Grabiec, as pure a shooter as anyone in the Big Ten,
found the range with his customary regularity. Eastern went to
a'man-to-man and occasionally a zone press, but these measures
"sapped us as much as it sapped them," according to Dutcher.
Dutcher also pointed to the rough and ready board play
of John Lockard as a key factor in the close loss. Lockard
swept the boards for 20 caroms, despite the refined hacking
techniques of the Hiurons.
"We knew Michigan had dominated Notre Dame and Western
Michigan on the boards," said Dutcher, "but we weren't going to
let them dominate us." The battle for the boards was close,
56-54 for Michigan.
Sophomore swingman George Gervin had Michigan fans
shaking their heads with his deadly outeourt shooting and un-
canny finesse. Gervin, who looks like a little kid who grew too
fast, pinged in 26 points and cleared 16 rebounds, battling well
underneath despite his lack of weight.
Gervin didn't come to Eastern because it is a dummy
school, as some have claimed, but because he didn't like
sunny California and Long Beach State. "George didn't feel .
comfortable at Long Beach," said Dutcher. 'A, lot of De-
troit boys seem to feel that way." Gervin spent a week at
Long Beach and then hurried home to the more friendfr
confines of Eastern Michigan. A few years ago Gervin was
tabbed a unanimous all-city, all-state choice after averag-
ing over thirty points a game for Detroit Martin Luther King.
Dutcher added that the presence of another former King
star on the Huron squad, guard Gary Tyson, ;may have influ-
enced Gervin's° decision to play - at EMU.
Calling his 647 star "one of the top five sophomores in
the country," Dutcher says, "George showed fine moves to the
basket, and came inside after his shots."
Reason, an all-tournament choice at last year's NAIA
finals and a consistent twenty-point scorer, ignored his
badly-sprained wrist and played a fine game fer the
Jiurons.. Anyone who wonders how Eastern lost to Tolede
and Wisconsin, remember that Reason missed most of both
games due to his injury.
Dutcher said that his scrambling Hurons had Toledo down
by 16 points in the second half but let them get away. Why?
Going into list night's contest Eastern had been turning the
ball over about thirty-six times a game. Last night the Hurons
cut their miscues to ten and this improvement signals their.
re-entry into the ranks of the nation's top small-college teams.

Wolverines survive rally;

slither
By RANDY PHILLIPS
It was a court sizzler in Crisler
Arena last night as the Wolver-
iae cagers barely survived a late
Eastern Michigan comeback bid
for an 89-88 victory.
The Hurons, down by 82-70 with
5:28 left in the contest, staged a
rally led by Earl Dixon and Lin-
dell Reason and out-scored Michi-
gan 16-6 in the next three min-
utes and 53 seconds to pull with-
in two of the Wolverines, 88-86. b
The last bucket by Dixon was on ii
a fast break, and the Hurons put s
on the full court press as Michigan
tried to bring the ball in bounds. p
The Wolverines called time with f
35 seconds left when Wayne Gra- s
biec was almost trapped for a five g
second violation. t
The press tactic still almost a
worked, but Terry Tyler slipped c
through a two-man trap and w
moved the ball over the center- t
line for Michigan. But Tyler could m
not control the ball in the fore-
court and lost it to Reason. The t
Hurons moved the ball back in 3
under the Michigan basket but the a
Wolverines forced a bad pass to f
give Michigan the ball with 11
seconds left and the Hurons still H
down by two.
Michigan called another time c
out. The Hurons continued to
press on the ensuing in bounds
play, but the Wolverines got the L
ball in to Henry Wilmore who o
made a good cross court pass to 0
-Tyler. Tyler took the ball downm
court and was intentionally fouled.
Tyler made the second of two at- b
tempts with 11 seconds showing ai
on the clock to put Michigan out p
in front 89-86. Michigan then let i
the Huron's Bill James drive un- v
molested for the meaningless final

asket as time ran out, and Mich-
gan had extended its unbeaten
tring to three games this year.
Michigan and Eastern had
played nearly even through the
irst half and ten minutes of the
econd period of play with Michi-.
an holding a slight lead most of
he way. In the last minute and
half of the first half the lead
hanged hands five times, but the
Wolverines managed to hold onto
he top end of the score at iner-
mission, 44-43.
Eastern took the lead for the last
time as the second half began on a
umper by James, but Wilmore
nd John Lockard combined for
ive straight, points to put the
Wolverines ahead for good. The
lurons kept within striking range
n long corner shots by George
3ervin.
With 8:44 left in the contest
ockard committed his fourth
ersonal foul and was taken out
f the game for Tyler. Grabiec
,oved over to play forward.
James sank both free throws to
ring Eastern within five at 69-64,
nd the Hurons went into the
ress that had been so effective
n the first half against the Wol-
erine offense.
Both teams then turned hot and
=changed baskets for two min-
tes. Grabiec and Tyler connected
rom the outside for Michigan and
Reason hit three straight bombs
or the Hurons. Reason's last
ucket brought the score to 75-70,
ut then the Wolverines went to
work.
Dave Hart and Wilmore hit on
>uckets to up the Wolverine lead
o nine, and after an Eastern time
3ut Wilmore swished the hoop for
ive straight points on a short'
umper and a three point play
That gave Michigan its largest
Lead of the night, 82-70. Then
Dixon and Reason got down to
he job of whittling down the
Wolverine lead.
Henry Wilmore led all scorers

with 29 points but only hit on
nine of 29 shots from the field.
Eastern went into a zone several
times during the first half and
the strategy stifled the Wolverine
attack. Dixon came out to hound
the Michigan forward every time
he got the ball in the corner, and
Michigan could not work the ball
under the basket. The Wolverines
were not rebounding well on de-
fense in the first half as Eastern
got several chances at tip-ins.
Michigan hit the /offensive boards
well also, but just could not seem
to put the taps into the hoop.
Michigan coach Johnny Orr was
not too pleased with the first half
play of his Wolverines. "We
weren't putting the ball in the
basket; we can't miss unmolested
lay-ups. It was the worst half
we've played this year, and I don't
know how we were ahead at half."

cent in the
up shooting
the game.

John Lockard turned in his fin-
est performance as a Michigan
player as he pulled down 20 re-
bounds and pumped in 19 points.
But it was Grabiec's fine shooting
eye that kept Michigan ahead in
the early going of the second half
as he made 10 of 19 shots and ac-
counted for 22 points. Orr com-
mented, "Grabiec really shot well
for us; he's a great player, but
not flashy."
Wilmore had trouble inside due
to the 6-6 Dixon covering him, and
a bit of rough action under the
boards. Orr said, "In the second
half Henry (Wilmore) played very
well, but he got beat up well with-
out many fouls being called."'

MICHIGAN'S HENRY WILMORE (25) leaps high to loft a shot

On the strength of Campy Rus-
sell's best showing of the young
season, the Michigan freshman
team crushed a motley collectionf
of cagers from Eastern Michigan1
102-71 at Crisler Arena last night.
Russell totaled 30 points on 11,
of 23 from the floor and 8 of 10t
from the free throW line before
being forced out of the contest withf
an eye injury with 11 minutes gonef
in the second half.
Russell sustained his injury whileI
battling under the Michigan boards
as a flying elbow caught him on
the way up. Although he could
have returned to action, it proved
wholly unnecessary because the
Wolverines had the game prac-
tically on ice.
Coach Dick Honig understated
the match-up, saying "We were
just a little better team." The
freshmen carried a 20 point lead
into the second half as Honig had
the opportunity to test his bench
sitters for an extended period for
the first time this year.
The contest began on an odd
note as the Hurons took the open-
ing tip and went into a stall, and
passed the ball around for over a

minute and a half before Melvin
Carr took the first shot of the
game.
The game remained fairly even
for the first seven minutes until
Doug Ashworth broke an 8-8 tie
with a free throw to send the Wol-
verines out in front for the balance
of the game. The Baby Blue fol-
lowed Ashworth's one pointer with
a string of three baskets and one
free shot to run the count up to
168 and finish Eastern for the
night.
The Hurons began the game with,

a zone press, a maneuver which
met with little success, and cer-
tainly didn't bother guard John
Kantner at all. "Kantner really
broke the press," opined freshman
assistant coach Dan Fife.
Kantner swished seven long
range shots in the first half and
added a free throw to tie for 20
minute honors with Russell. He
wound up with nine of 12 from the
field and a perfect one for one at
the line.
The Hurons would have really
been blown out in the first half if

1 02-7
it weren't for the solo job turned
in by forward Gary Cronenwett.
Cronenwett tallied 16 of Eastern's
28 first stanza points and finished
with 24 points for the night.
Cronenwett was largely respon
sible for the high Huron shooting
percentage (50 per cent) with 12 of
14 from the floor.
As was the case in each of the
two previous freshman games,
Michigan capitalized on a prepon-
derance of fouls committed by the
opposition, scoring 22 on free shots
to only nine by Eastern.
C.J. Kupec swept the boards for
the Wolverines with 11 caroms to
lead the team, followed by Ash-
worth with eight.
When the second team took the
floor in the second half, it was
Larry Stroud who led the way with
ten points on five perfect shots.
Terry McClain put the Baby Blue
over the hundred mark with 40
seconds left climaxing the rout.
Michigan, with a 3-0 record,
matching the varsity's, challenge
the Toledo Rockets next Monday
night preceding the varsity match
with the Australian Nationals.
