"We just didn't react.",
Michigan hockey coach Dan
Farrell summed it up best. Last,
night Minnesota's Golden Gophers
skated around and through the
Wolverine icers for much of the
game en route to a 4-2 victory at
Yost Ice Arena.
Except for brief spurts in the

Sports of The Daily

Cage broadcasts are
Tonight's basketball game at Iowa begins'at 8:35 p.m., East-
ern Daylight Time. It will be broadcast in Ann Arbor over WAAM,
1600 AM; and WUOM, 91.7 FM.
Minor sports take over
While Johnny Orr's hoopsters are off visiting the Fun Capital
of the Midwest, the so-called "minor" sports will come into their
own here at Ann Arbor.
This afternoon's gympastics-wrestling doubleheader at Crisler
Arena has been moved up a half-hour as a concession to the
energy crisis. The action begins at 1:00 when the gymnasts host
Newt Loken's alma mater, the University of Minnesota. Imme-
diately thereafter, Rick Bay's wrestlers take on Illinois.
The Illini are rebuilding this year, which is a polite way
of saying that so far they haven't been very good. Last
night, for example, they got stomped 33-2 by MSU up in East
Lansing. Their best men include 126-pounder Bob Mayer,
Andy Passaglia at 134, and heavyweight Palmer Klass, who
should be the toughest opponent Gary Ernst has faced in
The Wolverines' next home meet will be a lot tougher:
Oklahoma visits Crisler on February 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the first
of four dual meets where the Maize and Blue will confront na-
tionally-ranked foes. If Michigan does win its hoped-for national
championship, no-one will be able to accuse the Wolverines of
having waltzed through a patsy schedule.
Swim fans should enjoy the meet against Northwestern at
4:00 p.m. in Matt Mann pool. The Wildcats have dropped dual
meets to nonpowers Ohio State and Purdue, and if they come
close against Gus Stager's crew, it will shock everyone.
The Michigan Invitational track festivities were originally
scheduled for the new indoor track facility, but because that
building is still under construction, the event had to be
moved to Bowen Fieldhouse at Eastern Michigan. Action be-
gins at 10:30 a.m., and continues throughout the day.
Minnesota is back at Yost Ice Arena for a rematch at 7:30
tonight, but if you want to see a really big game, clear your
schedule for Monday night and show up at Crisler, where the
Michigan basketballers will take on mighty Wisconsin at 8:00.
Hawkeyes pick Cecchini
IOWA CITY-Tom Cecchini, who played some scintillating
games at linebacker for Michigan during the Bump Elliott era,
has been named an assistant football coach at the University
of Iowa, where the Bumper is now Athletic Director.
Cecchini's last job was as head football coach at Xavier. He
turned the team around on the field, but couldn't do the same at
the boxoffice, and the sport was dropped.

According to Bay, the biggest
surprise of the match was Rick

to Al Housner. Neff replaced the
injured Bill Schuck, and Bay
promised that "based on Neff's
performance he will definitely

Orr feels his team will be able
to bounce back from Monday
night's mind-blowing defeat at
Purdue. "We've had some good
practices and hopefully we'll
play well in Iowa."

a December game with Ken-
tucky. Three-year starter Neil
Fegebank is the only other Hawk
in double figures with a 12.9
point norm.
The scoring averages drop off
considerably after that with La-
Prince's running mate at guard,
John Hairston, scoring at an
8.4 clip and cornerman Scott
Thompson, 7.0.
Senior Jim Collins (6-9) has
taken over the pivot spot after
languishing on the bench and his
improved play in the Hawks' last
two gameshas given Schultz
some reason to be optimistic.
"Collins has played two great
games in a row and when he

open the game."
The Hawkeyes' major problem
seems to lie on the backboards.
Fegebank, Iowa's leading re-

and the Hawks are ninth in the

year, leads the Big Ten in scor-

Today's UCLA-Notre Dame rematch dominates
this weekend's college basketball action. The
Irish are ranked first in both major wire-service
polls following their stunning 71-70 upset victory
last week over the previously invincible Bruins.
Clearly, the Irish's desperation prayers worked.
UCLA led by wide margins throughout the game
until the closing minutes. Then, Notre Dame
miraculously reeled off the final 12 points to
capture the victory.
But weirdness can only go so far-it will take

The Michigan swimmers pad-
dled away with another easy vic-
tory last night, swamping Purdue
89-32 at Matt Mann Pool. Coach
Gus Stager again tried some new
combinations of swimmers to test
the Wolverines' depth for the quick-
ly approaching Big Ten meet.
Freshman Norm Semchyshen,
who is becoming a minor sensa-
tion, won the 1000-yard freestyle
event, beating Tom Szuba by near-
ly five seconds. Stager remarked
that, "with the way Norm is swim-
ming, Szuba is finding a need to
get in better shape." Semchyshen
is one recruit who is truly coming
through for the tankers.
Fred Yawger, another Stager re-,
cruit new to the team this year,
won the 100-yard butterfly. Rob

and third respectively behind Yaw-

both the 200-yard freestyle and the
