'IF WE DON'T play well, we won't win," Johnny Orr once
admitted about his basketball team. But luckily for Orr
and Michigan basketball fans, the team has been playing well
and as a result has been winning, even on the road.
Last Saturday's victory was the squad's third of the Big
Ten season against no losses, and like its first, it came away
from friendly confines. The Wolverines played a good second
half against Northwestern, but then they had to. Michigan had
its problems in the first period and the Wildcats roared, at least
for twenty minutes.
"Northwestern played very well," Orr noted, "for 30
minutes they looked as good as anybody. We didn't really do
anything wrong, they took the aggressiveness away from us
and controlled the game."
That they did as the Wildcats held a commanding lead
throughout most of the first half. Northwestern's leading
scorer Ron Shoger went where he wanted, usually right under
the basket, and dumped in 15 points, while the Wolverines
were forced to shoot from the outside.
Unfortunately the shots didn't drop in and as the Wild-
cats controlled their defensive board, Michigan was in trouble.
Northwestern ran their lead up to fourteen, but the cavalry
came to the rescue, in the form of Dave Hart, Harry Hayward,
and John Lockard.
Hart came in first, replacing Wayne Grabiec, who picked up
three fouls midway through the period. Grabiec, usually an ac-
curate shot from the outside, was off and pumped in only one
basket before getting in foul trouble. "Wayne just didn't hit the
basket," Orr commented. "His family was there to watch him
and he was just trying too hard. But he came out because of
the fouls, not his shooting."
One of the quicker men on the speedy Wolverine squad,
Hart gave the team an immediate lift. He picked up six
points before the half ended, but more importantly, he
stopped Shoger. "Hart helped us defensively," asserted Orr.
He was the only one quick enough defensively to do the Job
on Shoger."
John Lockard replaced Ken Brady at center shortly after
Hart came in. His assignment was to get the ball off the boards.
He only picked up two rebounds in the short time he played,
but he used his strength to muscle Northwestern center Barry
Hentz out from under the board.
Henry Wilmore, who usually roams freely over the court,
did some of his wandering on the bench. Wilmore took only
six shots in the half and was replaced by Harry Hayward. Ac-
cording to Orr, "Henry wasn't ready to work at the beginning
of the game. They were physically strong on him and they made
him work for what he got."
Wilmore on the bench usually means disaster for the
Wolverines, but Hayward "did a good job" and Orr feels
that "there's not that much difference with Hayward in
there. He's not that far behind Wilmore as a player."
The substitutes played a large role in starting the Michigan
comeback, but it was one of the team's "old men", senior Rod
Rord who kept them close enough to catch up.
Ford snapped off six rebounds and 10 points In the period,
in addition to covering the court on defense. Orr considers him
"always very good defensively," and adds that "Rodney is always
very valuable to us. He takes a few bad shots, but when he
drives he always gets the bucket."
Though the signs of a comeback were beginning to show,
the Wolverines went off the court at halftime with a seven
point deficit. Orr was worried, but the team was still confident.
"At the half I told them that we shouldn't lose because we
played bad," Orr remembered. "If Ve were going to lose I
wanted it to be because Northwestern played better."
The tear was more confident. "When we got back to
within seven I knew we could do it," Ford commented.
Other members of the team must have had similar feelings
as they came out after the half ready to tame the Wildcats.
It took them nine minutes, but once they took the lead they kept
"We were only seven down, and if we played well I knew
we could catch them," Orr asserted. "The team wasn't down,
and that's the sign of a good team."
Dan Fife, the other "ancient" on the team, helped key the
comeback, while making a personal recovery from a poor first
half. Fife shot only one for seven in the period. In addition he
lost the ball on turnovers several times. He dropped in 16
points after getting started, 10 of them in the first 10 minutes
of the half. According to Orr this was because he "started driv-
ing to the basket more."
This was one of the major problems in the first half,
getting in close for the good shot. "We had trouble freeing
Wilmore, Orr recalled. "But we did a little better in the
second half." Wilmore did a little better too, as he picked
up 17 in the final period before fouling out of the game.
The Wildcats lost two players to fouls, Shoger and Mark
Sibley, as they committed 32 violations in the game. Since
Shoger left with 24 points and Sibley with 14 their absence hurt
Northwestern. In addition the 32 fouls allowed the Wolverines to
set two new Michigan records, for most free throws and for
most free throws attempted. The team shot 50 times from the
charity stripe and sunk 33 of them.
"It was great to come back and win that way," Orr
asserted. "I was very happy to win and its great to win
another one on the road."

"That's three down and only 11 more to go."

The Wolverine coach cited last
Friday's game as being indicative
of their overall downward scoring
trend. "We had three clean break-
aways, and each time we didn't
get a shot on goal." he mentioned,
"The players have to be more de-

"We definitely lack size in some
areas, Renfrew asserted, "but
more important, we haven't play-

On the other hand. Denver de-

young team, the Pioneers played
