11 games over the idle New York
The Bulls loss coupled with Mil-

basket, but it was disallowed and

Love was called for a foul.

Cavs Barry(ed)
CLEVELAND--The Golden State
Warriors parlayed Rick Barry's
scoring and Nate Thurmond's re-
bounding into a 103-90 National
Basketball Association victory over
the Cleveland Cavaliers last night.
The Warriors raced to a 29-16
first quarter lead on Barry's 12
points and Thurmond's 13 re-
bounds. Cleveland battled back to
a 48-43 deficit at the half, but the
Cavs were unable to narrow the
margin any further.
Thurmond ended with 19 re-
bounds, and Barry hit a game-high
36 points. Teammate Jeff Mullins
added 21, and Jim Barnett scored
The Cavs, paced by Austin Carr's
21, hit 61 per cent in the second
quarter, outscoring Golden State
27-19. But the Warriors opened up
the second half by hitting 11 of
their first 12 shots and spurted to
a 15-point lead in the first three
Cleveland fought back to 88-82
with about four minutes to go, but
the attack wilted, and the Warriors
opened a 10-point lead in the

That was coach Rick Bay's re-

one word.
In the meet that everybody
read, heard, and talked about,

McCrory was faced with the
task of going against Michigan
State senior Tom Milkovich. The
defending Big Ten and national
champ has pinned many-a-foe
this year but McCrory was not to
be one of them.
The graduate of Battle Creek
Lakeview gave Milkovich a
tough go of it for two periods
and even grabbed two points in
the third and final period. Un-
fortunately, national champs are
not easily beaten and the Spar-

Other than the two losses due
to inexperience, the Michigan
grapplers were near perfect in
wrapping up their 11th straight
win of the season. In fact, Jerry
Hubbard provided an added at-
traction as he posted his 31st ca-
reer dual meet victory for a new
team record. Hubbard is only a

straight Big Ten victory. That,
incidently, is something that has

years of Michigan wrestling.
With last week's win under the
belt, the Wolverines are now the
only major ' college wrestling
team that is unbeaten and untied
for the season. ,Grappling pow-

and Washington all have stains
on their records.
In a poll released before the
Michigan State meet, the Wol-

nation; a rating which should
