Holi1*do
By BOB McGINN
While students crammed for
exams and celebrated the holidays,
Michigan's cagers took to the hard-
court six times and came away,
with jumbled results.
For the record, the Wolverines
won four and dropped two, but if
your last recollection of Coach
John Orr's club is the sputtering
Crisler Arena wins over Notre
Dame and Oregon State, it's time
to take another look at the round-'
ballers.
After the eastern road trip which
resulted in a tight 83-77 defeat at
the hands of highly-ranked Brig-
ham Young and a gutty 81-78 vic-
tory over Dayton, Michigan took
on the Detroit Titans in the Motor
City Dec. 16.
Before a hostile crowd, the Maize
and Blue put down Coach Jim
Harding's scrappy aggregation 74-1
65. It wasn't a great performance
by any means, but as Orr said
later in reference to a story which
called Detroit the best team in the
state, "I guess we proved to them
that they certainly aren't number
one in Michigan."
Henry Wilmore keyed the triumph
with 31 points, which included 11
of 12 from the free throw line.
Sophomore Campy Russell turned
in a lackluster performance, how-
ever, connecting on just 7 of 23
shots, many of which were forced
or from extremely long range.
The Wolverines did play some

hardnosed defense in the game,
which prompted Orr to comment
afterward, "I'm sick and tired of
reading that we don't play de-
fense. Why, we're as good de-
fensively as anybody in the coun-
try."
Two nights later Orr's club beat
Western Michigan 90-74 in the first
round of the Michigan Invitational
Tournament in Crisler Arena, but
it was far from impressive. The
unheralded Broncos stayed with
their overconfident foes until the
final five minutes, never leading
but always in contention. Big Ken
Brady finally subdued the upstarts
from Kalamazoo in the late stages
with a big assist from frontcourt
fireman C.J. Kupec. Brady banged
in 23 points and added 15 boards.
In the post-game press confer-
ence Orr found it difficult to con-
ceal his displeasure with his team's
lackadaisical play, saying, "We
