Special To The Daily
MILWAUKEE - Let us hope
Johnny Orr had his notebook
along andrwas taking notesklast
night, when the Marquette War-
riors pasted the Michigan Wol-
verines 81-52. If he did, he has
some pretty valuable notes.
But if he spent his time study-
ing 6-11 Jim Chones who single-
handedly destroyed Michigan with
24 points, 18 rebounds, and seven
blocked shots (not to mention sev-
en goal-tending calls), believe it
or not, he was studying the wrong
After all. nobody expected
Chones to be stopped, at least as
long as Michigan's big man, Ken
Brady, was recovering from knee
surgery, But face it, there is an-
other difference in the two teams,
besides their talent.
The coaches. The man Orr
should have been studying was Al
McGuire, who just has to be the
nation's best coach. Even neglect-
ing recruiting, which no one would
dispute McGuire is a master of,
the way he runs his team is some-
thing to behold.
Sure, Chones hit on 11 of 23
shots but to get a rebound away
from him is almost impossible, un-
less you happen to be the only
big man in the city of Milwaukee,
who is better than Chones, and
your name is Jabbar.


NORTH DAKOTA GOALIE Dave Murphy (1) sprawls on the ice as he successfully stops a shot by
Michigan's Bob Falconer (22) in Friday night's 9-6 Wolverine triumph. The Wolverines won again
last nigth also, 4-2.


Karl Bagnell couldn't have picked
a better night to turn in his finest
performance of the season. The
s e n i o r goaltender's exceptional
play last night led the Michigan
icers to their second straight
triumph over North Dakota, 4-2.
"Karl was just fantastic," ex-
claimed Michigan coach Al Ren-
frew after the game. ' Time and
time again, Bagnell made the big
save until Punch Cartier's empty-
net goal in the last minute clinch-
ed the victory.
Rick Mallette scored what proved,
to be the winning goal at the
13:12 mark of the final period
breaking a 2-2 tie.
Mallette drilled a wrist shot over
Dave Murphy's left shoulder after
grabbing a loose puck along the

MICHIGAN 1 1 2-4

Marquette played team basket-
ball for the entire game, and that's
a credit to the coach when a team
has a super-star like Chones. Mar-1
cus Washington rifled passes and
threw moves all around the arena.
And McGuire's field general, the
guy he puts in to run the teaml
when it starts to sputter, did a
tremendous job. His name is also
McGuire - Allie, big Al's son, and1
he is as good a play maker and
team leader as anyone around.
McGuire Jr., and Washington
connected for five assists apiece
and there would have been more
if the official statistician knew
how to count right. Washington
threw in 17 points for the War-
riors, while Bob Lackey chalked up
15 and 6-9 Larry McNeill tossed
in ten.
Michigan, which was never in
the game, was led by Henry Wil-
nore's 12 points and 12 from Ernie
Wilmore had to take a lot of
abuse from the raucous crowd, be-
cause of the big build-up he got
in all the pre-game prose. A fea-
ture in the Marquette program
had Chones telling all about how
great Wilmore was. "There's no
doubt about it," Chones is quot-
ed, "he's the best little man in
the country.
"He does everything well. Right
now, he's the best one on one
player in the country."
So the game started and the
roof fell in on the Wolverines.
Gettitng the ball in the basket was
a minor problem compared to the
problem of getting the ball in
bounds after a Marquette basket.
Set for a real tough battle, Al
McGuire had his team ready for
the fast-breaking Wolverines and
the Warriors opened up in a full
court zone press. Not only did it
stop Michigan's fast break, with
which it scored just two baskets
all night,, but it stopped Michigan,
and Orr'just couldn't find any-
thing to do about it.
He tried substituting more than
he had, but that didn't help much.
He tried conceding the height ad-
vantage to Marquette and substi-
tuting Terry Tyler for John Lock-
ard to give his team an edge in
speed, but that didn't help much
When Michigan was finally able
to get the ball in play, it didn't
have much chance to score. Ter-
ribly outsized the Wolverines'
front line of Johnson (6-8), Lock-
ard (6-5), and Wilmore (6-3%/)
could hardly contest for rebounds
with Chones, McNeill and Lackey
(6-6). That meant that Michigan
could have just one shot at the
basket at a time.
But once the shot was in the
air it had to get by a pretty big
barrier, the three foot long paw
of Chones. The Wolverines shot 27
per cent, a dismal figure compared
to Marquette's 58 per cent.
Wayne Grabiec, a 53 per cent
outside shooter, made only one of
eight field goal attempts, and only
three were from the outside. In
fact, all night, no more than three
shots from more than 12 feet fell

Bo bca ts upend Bcil

in the hoop for Michigan.
It finally got to the point where
all of Michigan's scoring fell into
the hands of Wilmore who, with
all outside shooting cut off, had
to go underneath and try to
muscle the ball in against Chones,
McNeill and Lackey.
The fans booed Henry when he
went to the foul line three times
in the second half. They booed
when he was called for traveling
or when he missed a shot. But
they cheered like mad when the
shot by Lackey at the buzzer was
ruled good, and Al McGuire came
rushing on the court to hug his
team. He's one hell of a coach,
that Al McGuire.
