Wolverines squeak by
as Wilmore scores 35

IOWA CITY-Dan Fife con-
verted a pair of free throws
with four seconds left to give
the Michigan Wolverines an
86-82 win over Iowa last night.

about four a half minutes left.
A free throw by towering- centerl
Ken Brady, an easy fast break

throws put the final hurt on Iowa.
The Hawkeyes blew a chance to,
tie the game at 82-all when Brown
*missed a drive and repeated tips
by the Hawkeyes simply would not
fall in.
Brown, playing his final game
before Hawkeye fans, collected 35
points and kept Iowa neck-and-neck
with Michigan through much of the
game. Brown and Iowa got a lucky
break when Fife left the game at
the 6-minute mark with a lame an-
kle, and missed four crucial min-
utes of play.

NIGHT EDITOR:

Wilmore converted yet another
hostile crowd to Wilmorism with a
dazzling 35-point effort which in-
cluded a variety of long range set
shots and twisting drives. The 6-3
soph flash kept Michigan ahead in
the second half by tossing in 20
points, mostly at crucial points
when Iowa threatened to'regain the
lead.
Faced with the domineering pres-
ence of Kevin Kunnert underneath,
Michigan just could not break free
of Iowa for any length of time. The
Wolverines raced to their biggest
lead of the game 73-65, midway
through the second half only to see
Brown and backcourt mate Gary
Lusk trim the lead back to nothing.
Kunnert led all reboundle:s with
22 and also garnered 14 points,
mostly on tips. His rugged perform-
ance was offset, however, by
Brady, who played one of his finest
offensive games of the season. A
demon in the first half, Brady
tailed off in the second stanza and

f, 86-82,
points
finished with 20 points, including
a 9-14 effort from the field.
While Iowa got good scoring from
its guards, Michigan's Fife and{
Wayne Grabiec could total but ]3.
Rod Ford, utilizing a surplus of
sneaky moves, contributed 17 to
back the strong performances of
Brady and Wilmore.
Iowa raced to an early lead in the
first half behind the explosive scor-
ing of the 6-3 Brown. At times lit-
erally faking defender Fife to the
floor, Brown accounted for twenty
points and, at one point, tallied ten
straight for the Hawkeyes.
The Hawks saw their lead of 38-
31 slip away late in the half as
Wilmore came alive.
Eight points by Wilmore sand-
wiched around a fast break bucket
by Grabiec put the Wolverines
ahead 41-40 with 2:17 to go in the
half.
Brown then scored on a pass
from Lusk for a 42-41 Hawkeye
lead, but Brady threw in a driving
hook to send Michigan into the
locker room with a 43-42 lead.
Brady and Wilmore , neutra~lzed
Brown's potent scoring in the first
half as each put in 15 points. Brady
moved around 6-11 Kunnert for
short hooks and tips and even
moved outside to score from the
key.
A strong performance by Kun-
nert, especially on the defensive
board, gave the Hawkeyes a 24-23
rebounding edge in that first half.
Surprisingly enough, guard Gra-<
biec led all Wolverine carom-grab-
bers with seven.
The win for Michigan clinches
at least a second place tie in the
Big Ten for the Wolverines and
almost surely wins them a trip to
the National Invitational Tourna-
ment.

Buckeyes romp over Hoosiers
to capture Big Ten championship

By The Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State
shot 60 per cent from the floor last
night to whip Indiana 91-75, wrap-
ping up the Big Ten basketball title
and a berth in the NCAA post-sea-
son tournament.
The Buckeyes, finishing their
league season with a 13-1 mark, will
take a 19-5 record into the Mid-
East regional. They will play Mar-
quette or Miami of Ohio.
Jim Cleamons led Ohio State
to its ninth straight victory with 30
points and sophomore Allan Horn-
yak had 24. George McGinnis fired
in 25 and Joby Wright 22 for the
Hoosiers, 9-4 in the conference and
17-6 overall.
It was a rough game with 40 per-
sonal fouls called. There also was
a minor second half scuffle under
the Ohio State basket between Mc-
Ginnis and Stan White, a regular
linebacker for the Ohio State foot-
ball team.
Ohio State raced to a 52-35 lead
early in the second half. Indiana
rallied to within 66-64 with seven
minutes to play before Cleamons
and Hornyak sparked a late Ohio
State drive.
The Buckeyes last won a Big
Ten cage title in 1968 when they
won a playoff for the champion-
ship with Iowa. They went on that
year to finish third in the NCAA
tournament, before losing to North
Carolina in the semifinals.
* * *
Boilermakers steam

sixth consecutive victory last nigt,
battling from behind to defeat Wis-
consin 81-77 in a Big Ten basket-
ball encounter.
The victory was their 10th
against three losses in the confer-
ence, keeping the Boilermakers in
contention for a National Invitation
Tournament bid.
Purdue was down 42-35 at inter-
mission, but took command of re-
bounds in the second half with
William Franklin and Bob Ford
setting the pace.
Larry Weatherford repeatedly
scored on long shots, winding up
with 28 points to lead Purdue.

Spartans triumph
EAST LANSING, Mich. - The
scoreboard clock wasn't working,
but Michigan State was and it paid
off in a come-from-behind victory
for the Spartans last night as they
finished Minnesota's season 73-71 in
a Big Ten basketball contest.
The Spartans trailed through
most of the second half until about
3% minutes to go, when Bill Kil-
gore put MSU ahead on a driving
hook shot. Brad Van Pelt added
one on a free throw, but Ollie
Shannon tied it up on two foul shots
at 69-69 with just over two minutes
left.
A short time later, a layup by
Pat Miller proved the clincher for
the Spartans.
Michigan State senior guard
Benjamin scored 20 points to move
into third place on the all-time
MSU scoring list with 509 points
for the season.
Michigan State is now 4-9 in the
Big Ten and 10-13 overall, while
the Gophers finished their season

at 5-9 in the conference and 11-13
overall.

Wildcats rampage
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- North-
western took command at the half
and then handed Illinois its eighth
straight Big Ten basketball loss,
85-70 last night behind Rick Sund's
30 points.
The Wildcats, winning only their
second conference game of the sea-
son, led most of the first half and
held a 39-36 lead at intermission.
Illinois, dropping to 4-9 in Big
Ten play, never got any closer as
the Wildcats scored the first six
points of the second half.
Nick Weatherspoon topped Illi-
nois scorers with 24 points while
teammate Rick Howat was held to
12, his low for the season.
The victory was Northwestern's
second in 13 conference games.
