Fage Seven'


Special to The Daily
TUSCALOOSA-Twice within four nights now
the streaking Michigan Wolverines have limited
two high-powered scoring machines to a mere 68
points apiece, bringing Johnny Orr's defensive
wonders first the Big Ten championship, and last
night a berth in the NCAA Mid-East finals Satur-
day afternoon against Marquette.
The Wolverines have played the good "D" all
year, but their efforts this week against both Indi-
ana and Notre Dame have finally laid to rest
Sports Illustrated's claim that "Johnny Orr's idea
of good defense is to win 91-89."
NOTRE DAME entered last night's fray aver-
aging a tough 89.6 points per game, one of the.
miore prolific scoring worksheets in the nation.
But last night, Digger Phelps' fighting Irish strug-
gled for their 68 markers, half of which burly
John Shumate muscled in over the foul-plagued
C. J. Kupec.
That leaves 34 points for the Dame's remaining
players, people named Adrian Dantley, Gary Bro-
kaw, Gary Novak, and Dwight Clay. Michigan won
last night because Wayman Britt, Steve Grote, Joe
Johnson and Campy Russell completely dominated
their opponents defensively. Johnson and Grote
didn't score much (5 and 4 points, respectively),
but the Wolverines' backcourt tandem thoroughly
shackled their Notre Dame running mates and dis-
rupted the Irish's patterned offense.
GROTE particularly enjoyed his defensive ef-
fort against Brokaw, holding the third team all-
American to a miserable 4-for-16 shooting per-

shin es
formance and but 10 points (7 below Brokaw's sea-
son average). "I thought I was more valuable to
the team tonight than in any other game," grinned
the Cincinnati Kid. "I really enjoyed that game."
Grote explained that "What I've been doing
lately is running up and stopping at half court
on defense, meeting my man and forcing him to
stop. It really slows them down," observed the
rookie guard. "They can't run over me for a foul,
so they've got to go around."
JOE JOHNSON, a master at drawing offensive
fouls, forced Dwight Clay into a 3-for-10 ballgame
and general obscurity. When praised for his good
defense, Michigan's ballhandling wizard remarked,.
"That's what I've been trying to do all year. If I
can dominate my man, it's a definite plus for our
BUT, PERHAPS the best defensive effort last
night came from Wayman Britt against a much
heralded Adrian Dantley. Britt, the 6-2, jumping
jack from Flint, attributed his defensive success
to a tendency Michigan's coaches picked up watch-
ing the Notre Dame films. "The scouting report
said Dantley couldn't go to his right," revealed
Britt, "and he didn't. I led him to the left and
tried to position myself well."
Overall, Notre Dame sank a meager 38.7 per
cent of its shots against Michigan on a 29-for-75
ballgame. "I thought we did a pretty good job
on defense," summed up Orr. "Brokaw's a third
team All-American and Dantley's one of the top
five freshmen in the country. We did a pretty good
job on them," winked the Wolverine mentor.

T WOULD have been so easy to be awed.
Here was Notre Dame, the darling of the nation's Catholics,
the national media, and conquerors of the almighty UCLA Bruins'
long winning streak.
Here was Michigan, picked to finish eighth in the Big Ten,
z possessor of almost no national clippings even though perhaps
the best player in the country wears its uniform, and an under-
dog in every crucial game all season.
So naturally, the Wolverines rose to meet this tremendous
challenge and out-played, out-hustled and out-battled those Irish

sell and one of the more anonymous (until last night) fine
players In the country, Wayman Britt.
Campy just oohed and aahed the highly partisan Michigan
crowd with a delicious assortment of fadeaway jumpers, tip-ins
and whirling drives. This was the showcase Campy had been
waiting for as he matched his season high of 36 points for the
second time in six days and flew upward for 18 rebounds, one
more than Irish truckhorse John Shumate.
As great as Campy was, the night really belonged to Way-
man. The muscular 6-2 forward was pitted against highly pub-
licized Adrian Dantley, a massive 225-pound forward who was
acclaimed as the best freshman in America and mentioned on
many All-America teams.
If there was any single match-up that summarized the
entire titantic upset last night, it was Britt vs Dantley-as
Wayman came through in Herculean style with a great per-
formance. The Flint Northern product scored 18 points,
grabbed 7 rebounds, stole four passes and blocked two shots.
But these stats don't show the job wild Wayman did on
Dantley. Adrian had but two points, 16.5 under his seasonal
average and 6 rebounds.
In fact Britt didn't just beat Dantley at his game, he ran
him into the ground. In Michigan's almost standard early rush
that produced 22-6 and 28-8 leads before the Irish realized the
Wolverines had come to play, Britt was an omnipresent force;
clearing the boards and initiating and ending fast breaks.
Then in the second half Britt brought the 'Bama crowd to
its feet in one incredible sequence. Playing Dantley tough inside
the key, Wayman went up with him, throwing his jumper off
the mark. Then he grabbed the ball off the iron, dribbled out of
traffic the length of the floor for a bucket.
Most of all, Wayman was unawed by the Irish or Dantley.
"To me, he is just another player. I just figure out where I
can beat him and play my game. Just because he plays for
Notre Dame doesn't make him great."
Asked if he thought Dantley took him seriously Britt re-
sponded, "No, he underestimated me. I guess a lot of guys do."
If either team was tight last night, it certainly was Notre
Dame. The Irish were expected by all the "experts" to waltz
through this regional with the best chance to knock off either
UCLA or North Carolina State. As Russell said to the horde of
reporters, "We weren't tight. The pressure was on them, not u."
Irish mentor "Digger" Phelps did not make excuses for his
team and had only plaudits for the Wolverines. "We've let a
lot of people down, but you know what I said about throwing
out the rankings when you get four great teams is true. Any-
thing can happen. Michigan played very well and they deserved
to win," Phelps added.
It seemed that the Wolverines had to travel seven hun-
dred miles due south in order to pick up some fans. Notre
Dame isn't exactly the most popular institution of higher
learning in Tuscaloosa, and the Wolverines had to benefit
from it.

All-America rating
for goalie Moore
Robbie Moore, goalie for Michigan's hockey team, was
named Wednesday to the first team All=America hockey squad
by the American Hockey Coaches Association. The 5-5, 155-pound
sophgmore sensation had a 4.3 goals against average this season
while making 1203 saves.
"I'm very pleased that Robbie received this honor," re-
marked Wolverinecoachh Dan Farrell. "He's helped us out a
great deal this year. He's played very consistently and has kept
us in some of the big games. We look forward to having Robbie
back for an even better junior year."
Moore, often a cocky performer in the nets, reacted quietly
to the honor. "I guess it's quite an honor," commented the
Sarnia, Ontario native. "I was really surprised."
Great quickness has been the key for Moore's success who
has overcome the disadvantages of his small size to earn
renown throughout the WCHA and throughout the nation as the
best at his position.
Still, Moore is reluctant to accept full credit for the honor.
