... came through on cue
By BILL STIEG!
jT WASN'T supposed to happen that way.
Last night's game against Wisconsin was supposed to be
another easy Michigan win, like Saturday's Northwestern game
-a mere tune-up for the really big games coming up this
weekend.
But there were the Badgers-"0 and 8 in the Big Ten,
3 and 11 overall, and with their star player still hobbled
slightly by an ankle sprain-forcing Michigan to battle from
behind and into overtime before giving in.
And there were the 5,328 Michigan fans waiting patiently for
their Wolverines to pull ahead-waiting and waiting, and finally
settling for a free throw to decide the game.
"You never know when you're going to see an excitirg one,"
said a relieved Johnny Orr after Wayman Britt's heroics. No
game is easy.
"We couldn't get 'em ready," continued Orr. "They just
wouldn't believe they were going to play anyone good."
Wisconsin played much better than anyone expected, hitting
48 per cent of its shots, and shutting off much of Michigan's
offense, especially in the first half.
Dale Koehler, the Badgers' center who is still i ecovering
from a severely sprained ankle, surprised everyone with a series
of hooks and inside moves that kept the tension high in the late
going.
Michigan, meanwhile, was a bit sloppy in its execution
and almost laughable in its shooting, missing countless lay-
-ups and open jumpshots.
But in the pressure-packed final minutes, C.J. Kupec, Joe
Johnson, Steve Grote, and Britt-four of the starters on last
year's championship team-all canned shots that had to be made.
"Lots of guys played bad," admitted Grote. "But in the
end, everyone did something good."
Britt, remarkably calm during the hectic closing moments,
had to shoot his deciding free throws after time expired in the
overtime period.
When the winning shot swished through, the cool, calm
Britt didn't change expression, and simply looked at the bench
as if he wondered what all the commotion was about.
How did he stay so relaxed?
"You can't think about if you miss, it could put you out
of the race or anything," Britt said. "Like, I look at Frazier
and Lanier, and they don't let it bother them.
"I was thinking about my mother," he continued, "and about

stage was set for Britt's two
conversions.
Koehler led Wisconsin with
24 points and used every sur-
face on the backboard and both
hands to score them. However,
he missed two foul shots on the
end of three point plays and
one other crucial charity toss.
Orr noted that he had trouble
in getting his team mentally
ready for the game, and it
looked that way in the first
half.
MICHIGAN SHOT 30 per cent
from the floor while Wisconsin
hit at 48 per cent. Also, the
Badgers' defense was amazing-
ly efficient.
"They defended against us as
well as anyone has against us,
all year," Orr commented.
However, Michigan's shot se-
lection was often poor and Orr
added that the Wolverines cut
sluggishly in the first half.
EVEN THOUGH Michigan
was stymied, Joe Johnson help-
ed avert disaster for the Wol-
verines and brought them back
from a nine point, first-half
deficit.
Eight times Johnson drove
the lane in the first halfvand
either scored, drew a foul or
assisted. Johnson had six as-
sists.
In the second half, the Wol-
verines shot better. They hit 49
per cent and even though Wis-
consin didn't cool down, the
pace pushed Michigan over the
edge.
TWO SUBSTITUTES greatly
aided the Wolverines' cause.
Rick White scored five points
in a first half surge which kept
Michigan close.
And Dave Baxter, who's
quickly becoming an integral

part of Michigan's team,
passed more confidently than
ever and also grabbed four re-
bounds. He played 28 minutes
last evening.
KUPEC MARVELLED at how
similar last night's game was
to Michigan's 50-48 squeaker
over Northwestern a year ago.
"It's a funny thing," Kupec
explained. "I didn't predict it,
but I could see it coming. It
was exactly like last year with
Northwestern."
After the cliffhanger with the
Wildcats a year ago, Michigan
played flawlessly the rest of
the Big Ten season.
Michigan is 5-3 this year and
challenges Purdue and Indiana
this weekend. If Michigan is
ready for the two Indiana
schools like Britt, Kupec and
Grote say they will be, cliff-
hangers might be good medi-
cine.

NFL to choose
In today's National Football League player draft, only two
Michigan players almost surely will be chosen in the first seven
rounds.E
Free safety Dave Brown, a consensus All-American,
and linebacker Steve Strinko, who led the team's defense in
tackles, are highly regarded by pro scouts and should go
quickly.
Others who have a chance to be selected by a team not of
their choice include quarterback Dennis Franklin, center Dennis
Franks, wingback Gil Chapman, guard Dave Metz, defensive
end Larry Banks, placekicker Mike Lantry, and former tight end
C. J. Kupec.
