Wildcats,

By ERIC SIEGEL
Special To The Daily
LEXINGTON, Ky. - Sopho-
more sensation Henry Wi 1 -
more lived up to all his pre -
season rave notices at Memor-
ial Colesium here last night,
but Michigan needed about
three Henry 'Wilmores as
third-ranked Kentucky rolled
to a 104-93 victory.
The Wolverines made every mis-
take in the book in the first half
against the smooth cool Wildcats,
and Kentucky raced to 53-39 mar-
gin.
The Wolverines failed to cash

in on their free throws, hitting on
only seven of 17 in the half; were
outrebounded by 'their taller op-
ponents 27-17; and took about a
dozen bad shots and missed half
a dozen easy ones. They also con-
tinuallygave the Wildcats the
open shot.
Only the play of Wilmore, who
collected 25 of his 40 points in the
first half, enabled the Wolverines
to keep the game from becoming'
a complete rout.
The second highest scorer in
the half for the Wolverines behind
Wilmore was Fife, with only 6

points. As a whole, the Wolverines
hit. 16 of 35 shots for 45.7 per cent.
Kentucky, meanwhile, stayed
cool and worked for the open shot.
The Wildcats, who placed three
men in double figures in the half
and haddanother with nine points,
riddled the nets for 23 of 41 field
goals, or 58.5 per cent. The Wild-
cats took the lead with 18:38 left
in the first half and never lost it
after that.
The Wildcat margin reached 19
with just 2:54 left in the first half,
but Wilmore, who made a phe-
nomenal 17 of 21 shots from the

floor, six free throws and seven
rebounds, hit on a pair of field
goals and forward Rod Ford net-
ted four points on a short jumper
and a lay-up to tone down Ken-
tucky's lead.
"We were tight out there for[
some reason," Michigan coach
Johnny Orr, who saw his team's
record fall to 0-2, said after the
game. "We just couldn't get go-
ing."
"We niissed free throws and
lay-ups like crazy," Orr continued.
"I don't know what the hell's
going on out there when guys six-
eight are missing lay-ins."
The Wolverines made a come-
back bid late in the second half,
after the Wildcats led by as much,
as 16, 89-73, with 7:52 left in the
game.
With Wilmore getting some help
from Ford, who wound up with
nine points for the evening, and
Fife, who collected 20, the Wol-
verines cut the Wildcats' margin
to six, 89-83, with a little less than
five minutes left to play.
But the Wildcats, led by senior:
guard Mike Casey and 7-2 sopho-
more center Tom Payne, outscored
the Wolverines 15-10 the rest of
the way to put the game out of
reach.
Casey, who sat out last season
with a broken leg, and Payne, the
first black player at Kentucky,
paced the Wildcats surge in the
first half, with 12 and 10 points
respectively, but they weren't the
only ones doing the scoring. Larry
Steele also added 10 in the half
and junior guard Kent Hollen-

NIGHT EDITOR: JERRY CLARKE

points respectively, while Payne
added 17 and Hollenbeck 16 as
Kentucky busted the century
scoring mark for the second week
in a row. The Wildcats shot a
blistering 55.8 per cent to the
Wolverines 48.1.
The Wildcats, who outboarded
the Wolverines 50-39, clearly won
the battle of the big men. Mich-
igan's sophomore center Ken
Brady, who collected 20 points and
15 rebounds in the opener against
Notre Dame, was held to nine
points and four rebounds, al-
though he played much of the,
game in foul trouble and fouled
out with four minutes left. -
Brady's back-up man, sopho-
more Ernie Johnson, had even
more trouble, he got nine re-
bounds, but managed just three
points as Payne and 6-104 Mark
Soderberg proved tough under-
neath on defense as well as of-
fense. Soderberg was the Wild-
cats' fifth man in double figures
with 10.
Another bright spot for the{
Wolverines, beside Wilmore, was
the play of 5-8 junior Dave Hart,
who gave the Wolverines a lift in
the second half, scoring four
points and helping to key the
comeback attempt.

"We played a good second half,"
Orr said. "We were on the move
and running at them, but they
got hot and we fell short. We
didn't give up though. We didn't
quit.
"I don't want the team to get
down after tonight, though," Orr
added. "We've lost two games in
a row but they've been to two of
the top five teams in the coun-
try. And we're not that far away
from being as good as they are."
Was there any improvement
over Tuesday's 94-81 loss to Notre
Dame?
"Well,"' said Orr, "Wilmore was
super-great out there. And we
played that good second half.
Hopefully we'll be able to put two
good halves together."
The Wolverines will have that
opportunity against Duke Monday
night at Durham.
Defers delved
For the second night in a
row, the Michigan icers fell to
Colorado College, 6-3. In a
game marred by fights, cap-
tain Paul Gamsby picked up
two misconducts and thus will
be unavailable for the Wiscon-
sin series next weekend.

last Tuesday's loss to Notre Dame. Last night, however, Wilmore
showed his skills to the tune of 40 points, mostly on jump shots

dropped a thriller to the Kentucky Wildcats, 104-93.

Vikings down Bears 16-13;
first team to clinch title

Michigan's gymnasts showed
their class among the foes
they'll be seeing a lot of in the
coming months, as they swept
to a strong finish in the Big
Ten Invitational at East Lan-
sing yesterday.
There was no official team
competition or totals, thus Mich-
igan cannot be declared the out-
right winner. But the Wolver-
ines' dominance can be attested
to by their seven finishers
among the first three gymnasts
in each event, compared to five
for Iowa, three for Indiana, and
two each for fllinois and Mich-
igan State. Furthermore, the
Wolverines picked up two first-
place finishes among the six
contests, more than any of the
nine other competing teams.
Two of Michigan's strong line-
up of all-arounders, Ted Marti
and Ray Gura, showed their
Big Ten counterparts the ver-
satility that will likely be the a
hall mark of ivictory as far as
Michigan is concerned this sea-
son. Although it appeared that
Marti had a slightly better total
over all six events, one which
included a number two finish in
the free exercises. Gura lacked
no ability to pick up high scores:
he won the vaulting event with
a 9.0 total, and placed third in
the free exercises.
Marti also qualified for the
parallel bars during the morning
preliminaries. In addition, Rick
McCurdy, handicapped by a dis-
located t h u m b, nevertheless
competed and qualified for the
vault.
Undoubtedly, the best single
performance for the Wolverines
was turned in by co-captain Ed
Howard in the high bar. How-
ard racked up a superb 9.35
points out of a possible 10, an

head full twist. "Howard's show-
ing was particularly pleasing,"
said Coach Newt Loken after-
ward. "Not much more could be
expected of him out there."-
Mike Sale finished a strong
second in the rings with 9.1 and
Dick Kaziny finished third in

fact that his 9.2 score was beat-

rolled up that amazing 9.45 in

But a glance at the top fin-
ishers in each event will-show
Michigan's steady, all-around
pre-eminance. "Our six morn-
ing qualifiers made a total of
12 qualifiers, a very satisfying
display," said Loken.
