... outrebound the big guys
By MARC FELDMAN
"IT'S A GREAT FEELING to look out on the court at the end
of a game and have your whole team on the floor," sighed a
relieved Johnny Orr moments after his upstart Michigan basket-
ball team had taken its fifth Big Ten victory of the season, an
83-75 thrashing of the Wisconsin Badgers at Crisler Arena last
night.
The Wolverines, who have acquired a reputation for having
ice water in their veins by winning four out of five games
decided by two points or less, actuallyadidn'tneed any last
second heroics to pull still another relatively tight game out
of the fire.
The Badgers are probably the tallest basketball team in
captivity with the 6-11 Hughes twins, 6-8 forward Dale Koeh-
ler and a pair of 6-S guards in Marcus McCoy and Gary
Anderson, and It appeared to the pre-game prognosticators
that it would be a battle of Wolverine speed and quickness
against Badger height.
However, no one told the Wolverines to be timid on the
boards. As improbable as it may seem the Wolverines, giving
away an average of five inches per man, outrebounded the
Badgers, 45-32.
"We knew we could win if we got the defensive rebounds,"
analyzed Orr. "We've outrebounded every team we've played
all year except UCLA and Purdue. I don't know why-maybe
the ball bounces to us most of the time and we catch it."
Michigan forward Wayman Britt, who has become accustom-
ed to huge height disadvantages at his corner position, faced
his biggest differential in guarding 6-11 Kerry Hughes last night.
But amazingly, the diminutive Britt outrebounded his Badger
counterpart 11-2 (the 11 caroms representing a season high)
and outscored him, 16-8.
'The Flint native wasn't picking his rebounds off the
floor either. "Britt really jumps well," Orr said. "He was
outjumping those big guys. You know, some people say a
guy his size can't play college ball but he just plays with
super desire. He's a great kid, and he works hard."
But it was a team effort that enabled Michigan to remain
solidly entrenched in second place in the Big Ten. This em-
phasis on team play could be seen most graphically in the
assists column.
For the game, Michigan hit 33 field goals, and 25 of those
baskets were set up by a teammate. Joe Johnson had a seasonal
team high with nine passes himself, Campy Russell had six, and
C. J. Kupec, five.
Kupec had just seven rebounds, but his advantage in mo-
bility over his .plodding Wisconsin counterparts was obvious in
the latter stages of the game when he. participated in the Michi-
gan ball control patterns. Twice in those final moments Badgers
tried to take the ball from him near the top of the key, and
he responded by hitting Russell a. couple of times underneath
for four quick points.
Both teams played extremely well in the first 20 min-
utes, with the Wolverines rallying late in the half for a 42-40
intermission edge. Each team went easy on the fouls, easy on
the, turnovers, and heavy on the teamwork.
Russell, who was held to six in the early going, really
turned it on in the second half and finished with a game high of
25 points. The Wolverines trailed 51-49 with five minutes gone in
the second half before Russell put on one of those one-man shows
that have become characteristic for the Pontiac junior.
In the next five minutes, Russell scored 14 of Michigan's
18 points in an 18-6 spree that opened up a 67-57 Wolverine lead.
But McCoy led the Badgers back to'within five points, 71-66,
forcing Michigan to call time, and brace for another frantic finish.
"We made a change just then, putting Russell on McCoy
and Britt on Koeher and maybe it was luck, but neither
of them scored apoint the rest of the way," Michigan's boss,
Orr-ated.,
It's too bad that only 8,230 of the Crisler faithful braved the
Ann Arbor tundra to come see the game. Each team basically
played its style but the Wolverines meshed their forte, speed
with suprising board work, forcing the Badgers to play catch-up
ball most of the second half.

By LESLIE RIESTER
The Michigan women's basketball
team came from behind last night
to overcome a scrappy Toledo Uni-
versity, 43-37. Sparked by Lydia
Sims' eight fourth quarter points,
the Wolverines pulled back from
a 22-12 halftime deficit to gain the
victory.

WISCONSIN attempted to rally
their forces. McCoy, now in the!
front line in place of Kerry Hughes,
started 'getting loose underneath.
But Johnny Orr countered that by!
simply switching his defenders,
moving Russell onto McCoy and
transferring Britt to Dale Koehler.
Following this move, McC6y was
heard from no more.
A near fight between Russell and
Koehler marred the closing minute
of the game, with Koehler assess-
ed a technical for his part in the
proceedings. Russell claimed later;
that Koehler piled onto him when
he was on the floor scrambling for
the ball with another Badger
cager.

Sims fouled out in the midst of
Michigan's rally, but the Wolver-

under the pressure, committing
three straight fouls to seal the
game for Michigan.
Sims finished with 18 points for
Michigan. Gilfillan and Vander

Toledo with 12.
In the preliminary game, the
