Dekers get stoned
THE MICHIGAN DEKERS dropped their two game total goal
series at Minnesota, 10-5, in the opening round of the WCHA
playoffs over spring break. The Gophers went on to defeat Den-
ver 5-4 in the second round to advance to the NCAA champion-
ship round along with Michigan Tech, victor by 12-10 over
Michigan State.
An NCAA selection committee chose 1973 league cham-
pion and top-rated Michigan Tech to join Minnesota and
represent the WCHA in the NCAA's single elimination tour-
nament at the Boston Garden this weekend against Boston
University and Harvard of the ECAC.
Herb Brooks' Gophers will face-off against Boston Thurs-
day night, while John MacInnes' Huskies will skate against Har-
vard Friday night. The winners will meet Saturday for the
championship with the losers vying for third place prior to the
title match.
Mat machine misfires
MICHIGAN'S WRESTLERS did almost everything expected
of them at the Big Ten Championships last weekend in Evan-
ston, but Iowa's team got hot, qualified all ten members for the
NCAA tournament, and outscored the Maize and Blue, 151-123.
Fatal to the Wolverines were Jim Brown's surprise rat-tall
6-3 loss at 118 to Minnesota's Mike McArthur, and 177-pound-
er Rob Huizenga's 6-3 semifinal setback at the hands of
Iowa's Chris Campbell.
Bill Davids (134), Jerry Hubbard (150), Dave Curby (190)
.and Gary Ernst (heavyweight) won individual championships,
Bill Schuck (142) placed second, and Brown, Huizenga and John
Ryan (167) took thirds. These eight Wolverines will carry Michi-
gan's title hopes at the NCAA tournament this week in Ames,
TEAM SCORE: Iowa 151; MICHIGAN 123; Mich. State
86%; Wisconsin 66; Minnesota So; Northwestern 36; Illinois
35; Indiana 17%; Purdue 4%; Ohio State 21/2.
Swimmers ship out
THE MAIZE AND BLUE swimmers competed in the Big Ten
Swimming and Diving Championships last week at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin. For the first time in 14 years, the Wolver-
ines did not finish second behind Indiana.
Michigan sunk all the way to third, as Wisconsin put on
a stalwart performance to cop the runner-up slot before the
home-town mob. Afterward, Michigan coach Gus Stager said
that "it's going to be hard for us to beat Wisconsin from
now on."
It's going to be hard for anyone to beat Indiana from now
on, as the Hoosiers rested on their talent and splashed to an
easy title. Indiana coach Doc Counsilman called his team's per-
formance "nothing great and nothing bad," but it was enough.
Gymnasts tumble
MICHIGAN'S GYMNASTS travelled to Iowa last week for
the Big Ten Gymnastics Competition only to be bested by the
hosting Hawkeyes, for the team championships. The Wolverines
managed a creditable second.
The Wolverines were plagued throughout by injuries.
Jean Gagnon, Michigan's best all-around man, jammed a
thumb and J. P. Bouchard's sprained ankle made Michigan's
title hopes impossible.
Good Michigan performances included Bob Darden and
Carey Culbertson tying for first on the high bar, Bouchard's first
place in vaulting and a second place for Monte Falb on the
rings. These men qualified for the NCAA tournament.
The Summer Game returns
BASEBALL IS THE only sport-everything else is to pass the
time through the cold months until spring training comes.
Baseball is the one game where you can slurp beer in
the stands and joke with your friends and not miss anything
important. Each game is a tiny chip in the mosaic of the
season; forgettable moments form themselves into an un-
forgettable gestalt.
We welcome this time, although it's painfully clear that the
Tigers have far to go if they expect to rise to mediocrity. It is
enough to remember the graceful are of an Al Kaline double
to the left field corner. If it happens again, so much the better.
