Although Michigan's basketball
team had a winning record in its
three Big Ten battles over
spring break, two wins and one
defeat, the Wolverines' title
chances were dealt a sharp
blow when they were stopped by
Ohio State in the first game of
the trio.
Despite victories over Illinois
and Michigan State last week, the
Wolverines remain in second
place in the Big Ten and must
rely on Indiana to stop Ohio
State tonight if they hope to finish
in a tie for the title.
In their battle for first place
with the Buckeyes in Ann Arbor,
Michigan came out a loser by a
91-85 count and dropped one
game behind the Buckeyes in the
Big Ten title chase.
The Buckeyes blew out to an
early 39-19 lead as they com-
pletely outplayed Michigan with
their well - patterned and disci-
plined offense. Alan Hornyak, the
Buckeye's fine sophomore guard,
poured in 17 of Ohio State's first
21 points as he continually freed
himself from Wolverine defender
Dan Fife.
Luke Witt completely dominat-
ed' play under both offensive and
defensive boards as he complete-
ly outplayed Michigan's center,
Ken Brady. Brady seemed to be
intimidated by the Buckeyes'
seven-footer and missed all five
of his field shots and yielded ten
points to Witte before being re-
moved from the game after 14
minutes.

in the pivot and effectively neu-
tralizing Witte and Henry Wil-

more thrashing the nets for 23
points the Wolverines moved to
within ten, 52-42, at the half.
Michigan slowly whittled down
the lead in the second half and
finally knotted the score at 74-74
with 6:29 to play. But the Buck-
eyes came right back to regain
the lead and take back the mo-
mentum from Michigan, and end
up on top by six.
The loss, Michigan's second in
a row in the conference. after
eight consecutive wins, made it
a must for them to win their road
game at Illinois.
The W o1 v e r i n e s recovered
enough to nip Illinois 75-74 before
16,128 screaming fans at the pa-
latial Assembly Hall in Urbana.
The Illini, in the throes of a pro-
longed conference skid, juggled
their line-up slightly in anticipa-
tion of the Wolverines.

Illinois coach Harv Schmidt
benched his zeppelin-like center
Greg Jackson in favor of 6-10
sophomore Jim DeDecker, hop-
ing to neutralize Brady with De-
Decker's good outside shooting.
Schmidt eventually dropped
the idea and substituted Jackson,
who has added over twenty
pounds to his 265 lbs. pre-season
weight.
Illinois' slender 6-6 sophomore
Nick Weatherspoon led his team
from a 46-40 halftime deficit and
to ties at 48 and 50 in the early
second half play. Weatherspoon
accounted for almost half of Illi-
nois' rebounds, snatching 23, a
high for the Illini this year. His
every move was greeted by tnun-
derous calls of "S p o o o o n,
Spoooon" from the partisans at
Urbana.
Neither- team enjoyed more
than a three point bulge until
late in the second half when Illi-
nois forward Fred Miller tipped
in a missed shot to put the Illini
up by four. Three quick baskets
by Wayne Grabiec put Michigan
back into the lead at 71-69. Gra-
biec hit three times within 70
seconds for his total night's scor-
ing.
Another Miller tip-in with 2:34
left put the Illini up 74-73 and
was the final tally for the hosts.
Both teams traded turnovers un-
til Rick Howat, who was being
honored with 'Rick Howat Night'
missed a free throw with 59
seconds left.
Michigan gained possession and
worked the ball back and forth
until Dan Fife slipped .ne in
from underneath with 29 seconds
remaining. Illinois called time
and set up for the final shot.

Jackson apparently had a clear
shot from the lane, but chose to
pass to 'Spoon'. Weatherspoon's
jumper with 12 seconds left was
tipped by Rodney Ford and hit
off target. Wilmore's 'ebound
clinched the contest at 75-74.
The Wolverines finally put to-
gether a strong winning team
performance when they decked
Michigan State, 88-63 last Satur-
day. Following the pattern of
many of Michigan's earlier Big
Ten victories, the Blue did not
look overly impressive in the first
half and took only a one point
lead, 36-35, into the locker room.
In the second half the Wolver-
ines came out in a pressing de-

fense and forced Michigan State
into numerous turnovers. Also,
Henry Wilmore who had been
held scoreless in the first 12 min-
utes and finished the fist half
with only 9 points finally freed
himself from Spartan defender
Brad Van Pelt and pumped in !7
in the second half as the Wol-
verines opened up a lead and
coasted the rest of the -way.
Wilmore finished as Michigan's
high scorer with 26 points, and
was nobly assisted in the second
half by Johnson who again came
off the bench to spell Brady.
Johnson laid in 9 points and
thrilled the crowd with his hustl-
ing performance.

Now that the Wolverines have
finally reached the final week of
the campaign they find things no
more certain than they were at
the start of the season. A trip to
the NCAA tournament as Big Ten
champion is still a possibility if
the Hoosiers dump Ohio State to-
night, Michigan beats Iowa and
Wisconsin, and then gains re-
venge over the Buckeyes in a
special playoff next week.
There's also a probable invi-
tation to the National Invita-
tional Tournament in New York
if the Wolverinesm can hold onto
second place, or a spring in Ann
Arbor if the team drops one or
more games this weep.

TODAY'S GAMES

By MIKE TREBLIN
Entering the final week of the
basketball season t h e Michigan
Wolverines, their backs against the
wall, find themselves forced to
win their remaining two games.
What had earlier appeared to be
a certain conference t i t 1 e has,
with last week's loss to Ohio State,
dwindled into only a possible tie
for the championship.
To achieve a tie the Wolverines
(9-2) must defeat Iowa and Wis-
consin, both with 4-8 records,
while at the same time third place
Indiana must defeat Ohio State.
The struggle begins tonight for
the Wolverines as they engage the
Hawkeyes at Iowa City.
The Wolverines are coming off
of a hard fought 88-63 victory ov-
er Michigan State on Saturday.
According to Michigan coach John
Orr, it was "a great victory over
Michigan State - something we
needed. It gave us our confidence
back."
Orr acknowledges that the Wol-
verines have their work cut out
for them and realizes that "the
most .important thing is to beat
Iowa."
If Michigan is going to s t o p
Iowa, it will have to stop Fred
Brown, 6-3 guard, t h e league's
second leading scorer with 27.9
points per game. Orr plans to use
Dan Fife in an attempt to halt
Brown and will stick with Fife un-
tile he fouls out.

The other Hawkeye starters are
forwards Omar Hazley and Joe
Gould averaging 6.1 and 3.6 points
per game respectively, guard Gary
Lusk and center Kevin Kunnert
with averages of 8.0 and 9.8. Kun-
nert also leads the team in re-
bounds with 8.6 per game.
Michigan team members are
continuing to have fine individual
seasons. All of the starters are av-
eraging over twelve points p e r
game. Continuing in team scoring
leadership is Henry Wilmore who
will be sporting a fine 25.8 points
per game average going into to-
night's contest.
Wilmore said tonight's g a m e
will boil down to a shooting match
between him and Brown. Wilmore
will be up against quite a compet-
itor. Along with being second in
conference, scoring, Brown is the
tenth Hawkeye to ever score one
thousand points and is also the
only Big Ten player named to a
leading basketball weekly maga-
zine All-America college team.
Iowa's early hope for a first di-
vision Big T e n finish vanished
with their loss to Indiana Satur-
day. So tonight's game becomes
one solely consisting of revenge
for the Hawkeyes.
Coach Dick Schultz's team is
still sore about their title game

two years ago. In that game sixth
place Michigan beat Iowa by the j
score of 71-70 to ruin any -Iawk-
eye chance at the conference
championship.
Everyone on both teams realizes
that tonight the tables will be re-
versed. It will be Iowa's hope to
finish off Michigan's dream of a
co-championship in the Big Ten,
and a play-off game with Ohio
State to determine who will go to
the NCAA tournament. According
to Coach Orr, "Iowa will really
be after us."
Orr insisted that there is no
pressure from Ohio State. He feels
that the Wolverines main worry
should be Iowa and Wisconsin in
that order.
He stressed that if the Wolver-
ines play the kind of basketball
that they played in the early part
of the season they'll have no prob-
lem in winning against Iowa. He
is confident that Michigan has re-
gained its momentum after Sat- 6
urday's victory over State an d
that his team is ready to tackle
the Hawkeyes, and next week face
the Badgers of Wisconsin.
Orr summed up his attitude con-
cerning the r e s t of the season
when he said, "we're just trying to
win every game and hope t h a t
Ohio State stumbles."
