r~age seven'

Friday, March 1, 1974 ThE MICHIGAN L)AILY






Having trouble getting gas? En-
joy Ann Arbor weather better
than Florida's? Then why not
hang around town another day
and watch the Michigan Wol-
verines go after their 19th victory
of the season against Minnesota
tomorrow afternoon.
The Maize and Blue bring a
10-2 Big Ten record into the
Crisler Arena affair, and need a
victory against the Gophers to
stay within striking distance of
front-running Indiana. The Hoos-
iers, 11-1 in the conference, face
last-place Ohio State at Columbus
tomorrow night.

"I think they will come out and
hold the ball. That's his style,"
Michigan's m e n t o r analyzes.
Northwestern played "ball con-
trol" here a few weeks ago, and
Musselman surely knows the Wol-
verines won that game by just
two points.
IN THE TEAMS' first meeting
back in January, the Maize and
Blue fought off a late Minnesota
rally and foul problems for a 66-
65 victory. Michigan led by 16
with nine minutes to play, and by
eight with less than a minute
to go, but barely escaped un-
Guard Rick McCutcheon led
the Gophers on that date with 20
points, while Schaffer had 19.
Phil Filer, a 6-8 forward, was
held scoreless, but has really
charged on lately. In fact, Filer,
had 29 of Minnesota's points in
their 56-S0 upset victory over
Michigan State just two weeks
ago in East Lansing.
The Wolverines, confident of "a
berth in some postseason tourna-
ment, need wins over the Gophers
tomorrow and Michigan State
next weekend to become only the
third Michigan team ever to post
a 20-victory season. The other
two, of course, were achieved by
the great Cazzie Russell-led
teams of the mid-60's.
EVEN IF the Maize and Blue

do get by the Gophers, the road
to that 20th win at Jenison Field-
house will be rocky. The Spar-
tans have had a successful yet
heartbreaking season, and Gus
Ganakas' crew would like nothing
better than to derail the Michigan
C e n t e r L i n d s a y Hairston,
Campy Russell's nemesis from
'way back' is the key to the
Michigan State attack. Hairston
leads the Big Ten in rebounding
with 14 per game and has shown
the ability to carry the entire
team with him in a victory over
Purdue and in a near-upset over
Notre Dame.
If Michigan can win its re-
maining games, all it can hope
for is that either Ohio State or
Purdue (next Saturday) can
break the Indiana winning streak.
But even if the Hoosiers don't

THE GOPHERS, 12-10 overall
and 6-6 in the league, have been
somewhat of a surprise since the
Minneapolis school did not re-
tprn a single letterman from the
21-5 club of last year. Minnesota
has come on strong lately, win-
ning 6 of its last nine games to
leap from the conference cellar
to fifth place.

Coach Bill Musselman is one

The fiery 33-year-old coach is not
adverse to having his team sit
on the ball for long periods of
time, and will probably be up to
his old Ashland College tricks
tomorrow afternoon. M o n d a y
night, the Gophers built up a 20-
point bulge and held the anemic

No coach in any sport enjoys
having to rely on getting a little
help from another team to im-
prove his own team's standing.
That's what Michigan hockey
coach Dan Farrell faces this
The Wolverines currently hold
down sixth place in the Western
Collegiate Hockey Association.
Farrell would like nothing bet-
ter than to climb to the lifty
heights of fourth place, giving
the Maize and Blue the home ice
advantage in the first round of
the playoffs.

hope to become reality is if the

Because of a new method of
tie-breaking for final position
standings, Michigan cannot af-
ford to finish tied with Wiscon-
sin. The "new deal" gives the
higher position to the team that
has the best goals for versus

which would give the nod to Wis-
consin. Under the old system,

H o w e v e r, another reward
awaits the Michigan dekers this
weekend - a Big Ten cham-
pionship. Farrell's charges need
a win and a tie to cop the
league award. A split would
create some type of multi-cham-
pions arrangement shared among'
the Wolverines, Wisconsin andj

Farrell feels the Wolverines'
biggest problem this weekend
will be to stop the awesome
Spartan scoring machine. The
farmers' roster includes four of
the seven leading scorers in the
WCHA, featuring current scor-
ing leader Steve Colp. Colp tops
the circuit in both goals (37), and
total points (64) and trails assist
leader Doug Palazzari of Colo-
rado College (40) by three.
Centerman Tom Ross and
Daryl Rice have also notched*
over twenty goals apiece with
25 and 24 respectively.
The Spartans score a lot of
goals but for most of the sea-
son they gave up a large num-
ber, too. Freshman goaltender
Gary Carr (4.9 GPG) has hand-
led the brunt of State's netmind-
ing since returning from an ear-

ly season injury. Only lately has
he begun to nerform with any
degree of consistency.
The Wolverines h a v e not
scored anywhere near as many
goals as the Spartans (135 to
102), but they have not surren-
dered as many either (116 to 135).
Although Michigan goalie Rob-
hie Moore only ranks fourth
among the league's regular net-
minders with a 4.2 goals against
average, his percentage of goals
, to shots on goal is the best in
the league. Only 9.1 per cent of
the shots taken on Moore reach
the net compared to 9.4 per cent

Shelstad of Minnesota. Moore

In the Big Ten Swimming
championships held in Madison,
Indiana is, as expected, wiping
tip the field. Michigan holds on
to second. An extremely fine
showing by freshman Gordon
Downie has been the highlight
of the meet so far for Michigan.
Downie finished second to Indi-
