Blue, 63-6

A turnaround jumper from
t h e baseline by Purdue's
Frank Kendrick with four sec-
onds left on the clock lifted
the Boilermakers to a 63-62
victory over Michigan yester-
day at Crisler Arena.
The loss knocked Michigan
from the ranks of the un-
beaten in Big Ten play and
gave Purdue temporary sole
possession of first place.
The Wolverines had battled
back to take a 62-61 edge
after seeing their game-long
lead turned into a five point
deficit by Fred Schaus' fired
up Boilermakers late in the
second half.
Trailing 61-56 with 4:55 to play,
Michigan cut the lead ,when Ken
Brady sank a 12 foot jumper, then
hustled down the court to block



rival center John Garrett's shot{
ten seconds later.
Purdue retained possession, but
on the ensuing rebound, Henry
Wilmore controlled the ball and
found Campy Russell with a long
pass. Russell left his lay-up hang-
ing on the rim, but Ernie John-
son, trailing the play, converted
to bring the Wolverines within a
point, 61-60, with 3:48 remaining.
On Purdue'snext attack, for-
ward Jovon Price was called for
offensive goaltending. Michigan
however, was unable to capitalize
on the turnover, losing possession
when Purdue controlled a Ken-
drick - Ernie Johnson jump ball.
The Boilers failed to score and
the Wolverines moved the ball
into the forecourt, feeding Ernie
Johnson underneath for a.seeming-
ly easy lay-up. However, the ball
rolled off the rim and Purdue con-
trolled the rebound, but Ernie re-
deemed himself moments later.
After grabbing a loose ball to

thwart Purdue's attack, Johnson
sped downcourt, took a return
pass and dropped in a bucket
which gave Michigan a 62-61 lead
with 1:35 left.
Things looked rosy for the Blue
when Garrett picked up his fifth
personal moments later. The
foul, one of the offensive variety,
gave Michigan possession and a
one point lead with 1:18 remain-
Michigan's attempt to stall away
the last minute was short-lived.
With 48 seconds left, Kendrick'
slapped the ball away from Rus-
sell and controlled it for Purdue.
With the Boilermakers looking
for an opening and Michigan one
under the personal foul limit of
six, the Wolverines had a foul to
waste. But they picked the wrong
time and the wrong man to waste
it. With 15 seconds left, Russell'
went for the steal but instead,
wound up on the bench with his
fifth personal.
The ball, inbounded by Purdue,
took a quick trip around the peri-
meter, then went to Kendrick. The
6-6 forward, unable to find a clear
opening to the hoop, tried to back
his way in on Ernie Johnson and
finally whirled to the baseline, un-
leashing a tough, turnaround jump-
er from 12 feet.
The ball sailed over the strain-
ing fingers of Johnson and
swished through the twine with
four seconds left. Ken Brady's
hand flashed the 'T' when the
ball hit the floor, but only two
seconds remained when the time-
out was signalled.
Joe Johnson's inbounds pass
went to C. J. Kupec who relayed
it to Brady. The Big Fella's 35
foot hook shot cut the cords, but
a second after the buzzer had
sounded its death knell for the

"WE PLAYED LOUSY in the second half," Michigan Coach
Johnny Orr moaned after yesterday's last second 63-62
defeat administered 'by the tenacious Purdue Boilermakers at
Crisler Arena.
It was a game of sharp contrasts in play by the Wolverines,
ranging from the brilliance of the opening four minutes when
Michigan jumped out to a fast 13-2 lead to the abyssmal per-
formance that was characteristic of most of the second stanza.
Despite the early burst and possession of the lead through-
out the opening 20 minutes, Orr emphasized, "We were never
in command." Fortunately for Michigan the early lead stood
up for most of the game, but it became apparent in the second
half that Michigan didn't have the spark.
"I felt we were in trouble after three or four minutes of
the second half. Our movement was off," said Orr.
Michigan's quick getaway was fashioned by the same
things that were so conspicuously lacking in the latter
stages of the game-movement. In those initial minutes,
the entire team meshed itself beautifully in a spectacular
display of passing, running, and general fluidity of motion
that had the throng of 13,609 at Crisler screaming for more.
As proficient as the Wolverines were in moving the ball
then, the movement became just as obviously absent in the
second stanza. A majority of Michigan's points before the
belated closing surge were scored on outside jumpers with
the rest of the team standing around. This fact is evidenced
by the paltry total of one assist after intermission.
Purdue received an excellent clutch performance from
Frank Kendrick down the stretch. The 6-6 Kendrick has been
making a habit of staging big second halves in Big Ten play.
In addition to yesterday's 13 out of 15 points after intermission,
Kendrick scored 18 after a five point first half against North-
western, and had 21 of his 25 points in the opener with Illinois
in the second half. The junior forward is scoring at a 21 point
clip, of which an average of 17 have been second half tallies.
An irony of the Boilermaker comeback was that they
accomplished it without star sophomore center John Gar-
rett, who headed benchward with 16:34 to go with four per-
sonal fouls and Michigan holding a 41-36 lead.
Garrett had personally kept the Boilermakers in the
game in the first half with 14 points, but someone forgot
to tell Purdue to fold up with its star on the bench. Garrett's
slack was picked up by 6-6 stringbean forward Jerry Nichols
who finished with 14 points, eight above his season average,
and two over his previous top effort,
Hustling all over the court, Nichols seemed to always be in
the right place at the right time-with a steal and driving layup,
baskets on loose balls underneath, and one incredibly opportune
jumper with a shot/pass (choose one) which richocheted 20
feet off the backboard into his hands.
When Garrett went to the bench with foul trouble, it appear-
ed that Michigan had broken out of its lethargy as it assumed
an eight point advantage, 48-40. But Garrett's replacement at
center 6-10 Ken Otto, hit two side jumpers in short order and
the Boilers responded with a 21-8 streak during Michigan's worst
period of the game. Suddenly Purdue led by its biggest margin
of the afternoon, 61-56, ironically just as Garrett reappeared
with 4:50 showing on the clock.
Michigan finally woke up and scored six consecutive
points to grab a tenuous 62-61 lead. However, the Wolverines
were unable to control the ball after regaining possession
with 1:18 left as Kendrick slapped the ball out of Russell's
hands with 48 seconds to go-setting up his game winning
The Wolverines had a slim chance of victory with two
seconds to secure two points, but Ken Brady's desperation
hook swished the nets after the final horn had sounded. The
referee immediately signaled "no basket," but as Purdue's
Schaus said, "You never know on the road."
Orr emphasized that his team had not lost the game de
fensively or on any particular play, but rather with an offense
that produced just 23 points in the second half. "The offense
didn't do anything, but we still had a chance to win the game-
but that turnover (with :44 left) took the game out of our

repeatedly get two or three shots, especially in the second
half. Russell and Brady each rebounded well in the early
