MADISON-A goaltending call against Wisconsin's Glen
Richgels with five seconds showing on the clock gave Michi-
gan a 90-89 last second victory in yesterday's Big Ten basket-
ball opener against the Badgers in Madison.
Carried along by Henry Wilmore, who hit a temporary
career high of 44 points, Michigan led by as much as twelve,
62-50, early in the second half. But Wisconsin, led by Clarence
Sherrod, came back to tie the score 84-84 with 4:27 left and
then take the lead on Lee Oler's jumper, 89-88.
When the Wolverines put the ball in play after Oler's
bucket 1:18 remained in the game. Eight seconds later they
the remainder of the game but
failed to capitalize.
The loss, combined with Minne-
sota's 3-1 triumph over Minneso-
ta-Duluth, drops the Wolverines
into last place in the nine team

ation, with a conference record of
2-6 and a 6-8 mark overall.
The action also started with a
flurry as Bernie Gagnon electri-
flied the enthusiastic crowd before
the one-minute mark.
The Montreal speedster scored
his first of three goals at the 47
second mark on a brilliant solo
The quick start set the pattern
of the hard skating, hard hitting
affair. Referees Bob Gilray and
Gordon Lee called 24 penalties; 14
Ironically, there was only one

terference in the first period Spar-
tan Mike Calder netted the tying

ion. But Calder was unguarded

Michigan regained the lead at
3:15 of the second period, as Punch
Cartier set up Gagnon's second
goal of the night. Cartier carried'
the puck behind the Spartan net
and set a perfect pass to Gagnon
ust outside the goal mouth.
State tied the score for the sec-
and time when Mike DeMarco
beat Bagnell on the short side
from 40 feet out at 7:28.
Michigan regained the lead at
15:43 as Bucky Straub converted
Paul Gamsby pass-out.
With Michigan holding the 3-2

erocious forechecking which tied

Larry Jakinovich intercepted an

Wolverine zone and quickly flip-

The Spartans gained the lead foi
he first time in the third period
when defenseman Tom Marra was
aught freezing the puck in Mich-
gan's goal crease. Instead of a
enalty to Marra, the Spartans
eceived a rare penalty shot.
Thompson, who scored five goals
n a Spartan victory here a year
go, made the play look easy as
he faked Bagnell to the left and
lid the puck into the opposite
ide of the net.
Just 36 seconds later, Michigan

BUSINESS AS USUAL
Indiana captures swim relayS
as 31' tankers take second
called time out to talk thing.
Michigan went into a stack
and tried to free Henry Wil-,
more, the game's leading scor-
er, off a double pick. Once play
began again, however, it be-
came apparent that the Bad-
ger's zone defense was not
going to be easily penetrated
and the Wolverines called time
out again with 47 ticks left.
At this point the Wolverines were
still hoping that they wouldn't
have to play for the last shot.
According to head coach Johnny
Orr. "If we got a good shot we
would have taken it and gone to
the boards." But the Wisconsin
.defense proved stubborn and with
11 seconds left Orr once again
"We decided that we were either!
going to get to Wilmore or Wayne
Grabiec," Orr commented. Wil-
more couldn't get free and with
five seconds left Dan Fife hit Gra-
biec with a pass at the top of the
key. Krabiec shot and though it
appeared that the shot was off
Richgel tried to block it and drew
the costly goaltending call.
The referee's decision gave Mich-
igan a 90-89 lead but the Badgers
refused to fold. After discussing
the relevant issues Wisconsin put
the ball in play to Bob Frasor, who
drove the court and got off a shot
with one second on the clock. But
his effort fell short and the Wol-
verines were 1-0 in the Big Ten.
Though emotions were poles
apart in the two locker rooms
both coaches agreed on one thing.
Neither was entirely happy about
the goal tending call. Orr noted
after the game, "We were fortu-
nate to win and its a fine feeling,
but I'm sorry that John Powless
had to lose it this way."
Powless was sorry too, but for a:
different reason. "I can't see that
play being called goaltending," he
commented, "it was off to the
side and short." However, while
Powless may be right in that the
ball never entered the cylinder
over the rim, the. ball was on a
downward trajectory, which is also
grounds for a goaltending call.
But even though he would haveI
rather won it in a different way,,
Orr was generally ecstatic after ;
the game. "I'm elated to come on
the road and win," he bubbled.
The first one is always the hardest;
and this one was really rough. I've
never felt worse during a game
mentally and physically, since I've
been a coach.
But while Orr might never have
felt worse during a game, Wilmore1
never played better. As Powless

J. MICHAEL KEVRA
THERE ARE a lot of different types of coaches in the Western
Collegiate Hockey Association.
Some, like John MacInnis of Michigan Tech, are pacers who
stride around the bench like tigers in their cages. Others, such
as Glenn Somner of last year's WCHA champions, the Minnesota
Gophers, constantly keep up a chatter with their bench urging
them on to superhuman performances. Michigan's own head
coach, Al Renfrew, usually can be found standing silently by
the side of his bench chewing his gum and gazing out on the ice
like an oldtime Western homesteader appraising his ranch.
And then there is Amo Bessone, hockey coach of the
Michigan State Spartans.
Bessone is all of these types of coaches and more. Nattily
dressed in his green shirt and white silk tie, he is a part-time
coach, a part-time cheerleader, a part-time field general, and
a part-time entertainer.
The slightly graying mentor, who is loved in East Lansing
but despised throughout the rest of the WCHA, is, mechanically.
as good a college hockey coach as there is in the country. Bes-
sone's teams almost always play faultless hockey as they pass
and shoot the puck with near precision. The Spartans are one
of the most physical teams in the WCHA and Bessone teaches
his teams to hit and hit with authority.
Says Bessone, "Certainly we hit. Your defense is supposed
to hit. Our problem is we don't hit enough. You've got to hit
in the corners to win in this league."
As a cheerleader. Bessone ranks high. Hardly a minute
goes by when he doesn't dispell such pearls of wisdom as "Shoot
the puck in" or "Keep digging guys! We'll get them" upon his
team. As each line comes in from its shift on the ice, Bessone
is nearby with words of counsel and praise for his troops.
In his field generalship, Bessone is near perfect. He
rules the game from his bench, directing the action as he
sees fit. Using his deep bass voice as a weapon, he positions
his team around the ice, either bringing his defensemen
up or telling them to play deeper. If his forwards are caught
in a long shift on the ice, Bessone will call upon his defense
to "Give me a whistle" for a stoppage of play.
But it is as an entertainer that Bessone rules supreme.
After a Spartan goal, he can be found jumping up and down,
his clenched fist raised victoriously above his head and a smile
on his face. And pity the poor referee who makes a call that
meets with Bessone's disfavor. Hastily he calls the referee to his
bench to demand an explanation. He chastises the referee, he
pleads with the referee, and finally, he turns his back on the
referee, the ultimate sign of rejection, and slowly walks awgay,
his hands waving in the air as if invoking mythical hockey gods
to cast their wrath upon the obviously demented referee.
After his great victory last night, his second in two
days over Michigan, Bessone had praise for the Spartans,
the Wolverines and even the referees. Despite the 24 penal-
ties called, 11 of which were against his own squad, Bes-
sone admitted that "the referees had a pretty good game."
"They didn't hurt our game," he added. "They've got to
call the penalties close or the game just gets out of hand.
That's their job. Oh, sure, they missed a couple. Why number
11 (Michel Jarry) was down there pounding one of our guys
on the head and the refs didn't call it. And they missed a lot
of sticks being held. But Al (Renfrew) was hollering about
Sthe refereeing too.
"They didn't influence the outcome of the game one way
or the other," he concluded, which gives one a very clear im-
pression of who Bessone thought was the better team last night.

Nonetheless they were victors over
the Wolverines by a tidal wave,
The general tone of the compe-:
tition was set in the first event
and changed very little during thej
course of the day. Indiana pulled
out to the lead and increasingly'
widened it while Michigan and
one or two other teams fought
each other forsecond place.
Indiana paddled in first in nine
of the ten events, with Michigan
finishing second in seven of them.

came at the hands of the Wolver-"

Aside from the breaststroke vic-
tory, the best Michigan swimming
was turned in by the 300-yard

Ray McCullough and Byron Mac-
Donald. Although they finished
behind Indiana by half a second,
they managed to eclipse the pre-
vious record time for the event by
over four seconds, finishing at
2:31.9. The old record was 2:36.1,
set by the Hoosiers last year.
