4-

By ROGER 'ROSSITER'
"They were at their best; we
were at our worst," declared frus-
trated Michigan hockey coach Dan
Farrell after the North Dakota
Fighting Sioux clipped the Wolver-
ines, 4-2, last night.
The victory pulled North Dako-a
to within one point of the Wolver-
ines in the chase for the eighth 'md
final play-off - spot in the WCHA
standings. Michigan has nine poiuts
in 13 league contests, while North
Dakota has eight in an equal num-
ber of games.
The 4,795 fans in Yost Ice Arena
saw the Wolverines 'turn in one of
their most lackidasical perform-
ances of the season. On numerous
occasions Michigan forwards would
skate into the North Dakota lane
with two-on-one breaks and nt
even get a decent shot on goal.
Three times in the third period
alone the puck lay loose in the
Sioux goal crease with .NoDak
netminder Peter Waselovich help-
lessly prone on the ice. Not once
could Michigan do so mucn as
give the puck the slight tatp
necessary to produce a goal.
North Dokta struck first ii the
opening period when freshman left
winger Dave Gawley converted a
nifty goalmouth pass from Tom,
Evans at 3:25. The 1-0 advantage
did not last long.

MUSSELMAN'S NEW MODEL

Michigan

battles Gophers

By MARC FELDMAN
Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS-When Minne-
sota basketball coach Bill Mus-
selman directed the cage for-
tunes of tiny Ashland College in
Ohio, he wrote a book entitled
"33.9"-referring to the micro-
scopic number of points his
team allowed per game during
one season.
Musselman has since moved to
the rugged Big Ten, but the
name of his game is still the
same-defense. One of the cor-
nerstones of the Gopher mentor's
strategy makes perfect sense:
"If we have the ball, you can't
score." So don't expect a high-
scoring affair today when the
18th-ranked Michigan Wolverines
invade Williams Arena to battle
the Gophers.
YriThigan coach Johnny Orr
may. describe the Minnesota of-
fense as "patient" but it is bet-
ter known as a slow-down. The
Gopheers pass the ball around,
hold it, wait for a high-percent-
age shot and score about, 60
points per game.
Musselman's last two teams
won 39 of their 51 games, a Big
Ten championship, and trips to
two tournaments. But the names
on this Gopher team are not the

familiar Jim Brewer, Ron Be-
hagen, Clyde Turner and Dave
Winfield, and Minnesota's record
is a less imposing 6-5.
FORWARD DENNIS SHAFFER
leads the Gopher scoring with
a 15.4 average even though he
was held to four points and one-
of-eleven shooting in Minnesota's
66-55 loss at Iowa City last Sat-
urday.
Junior Phil Filer operates at
the other corner spot and scores
about 12 points each game. The
Gophers, who are short on height
already, really missed the 6-7
Filer on the backboards Tuesday
night in a 54-52 loss to Detroit.
The Cedar Rapids, Iowa junior

took a bad spill in front of the
home folks in Iowa last week,
but Musselman expects him back
in the starting lineup today.
Center Pete Gilcud has been
employed mostly to set picks and
rarely shoots. Gilcud is scoring
at a lackluster 6.1 pace although
he plays almost the whole game.
Phil "Flip" Saunders operates
at one guard spot and scored a
career high of 22 points against
Detroit. Rick McClutcheon, a
junior-college t r a n s f e r, joins
freshman Saunders in the start-
ing backcourt.
Musselman stays with his start-
ing five and rarely uses more
than six or seven players. In a
triple-overtime victory over But-
ler, three Gophers played all 55
minutes.
BECAUSE OF their tendancy
to hold the ball and a I ick of
rebounding strength, the Gophers
rely heavily on accurate shoot-
ing. In a December game with
Marquette, Minnesota made half
its shots and the Warriors just
40 per cent. The Gophers last

68-50 because Marquette attempt-
ed 31 more 'shots and had a 36-17
rebounding edge.
Michigan will go with the same
lineup against the Gophers that
upset Indiana last Saturday: Ku-
pec, Russell, Britt, Johnson and
Grote.
It should be a close game to-
day because of the style of ball
Musselman has his team playing.
If the Wolverines can break out
to an early lead, the unexplosive
Gophers will be in trouble.

The top scorers of the compulsor-
ies and optionals combined com-
pete in the Individual Competition
at 2:30 in the afternoon.
Since each coach designated one
man an automatic qualifier for
each event in the finals, the top
four qualifiers in yesterday's and
today's events will compete this
afternoon, thus having eight quail-
ifiers for each event. Loken chose
Bouchard to compete in the floor
exercise, Poynton in the horse,
Falb in the rings, Gagnon in vault-
ing, Bigras in parallel bars and
Darden in the high bar. It isn't!
necessary for these men to com-
pete in the optionals, but the all-
around competitors must compete;
in both compulsories and optionals.
