THE MICHIGAN DAILY
The highly touted Michigan basketball team ended its season
in a whimper last week by dropping contests to Wisconsin and
Ohio State. The once mighty Blue rolled over and died against
the Badgers Monday night, when they lost by an 94-79 count.
Henry Wilmore was, the high scorer with 27 points. He topped
the Wolverines again Saturday with 16 markers in the anemic
102-87 loss to the Bucks.
The Wolverines closed the season with a 13-11 mark overall,
and a dismal 6-8 Big Ten record, good for only a sixth place
tie in the standings. The game against the Buckeyes marked
the end of collegiate careers for such stars as Wilmore, Ernie
Johnson, and Ken Brady for Michigan and Allan Hornyak and
Luke Witte for the Bucks. And yes, Johnny Orr will take the
reins again next season.
Probably the best news of last week came from Seattle
where the Wolverines grappled to a third place finish in the
NCAA. Jerry Hubbard reversed his Big Ten loss to Wisconsin's
Rick Lawinger by defeating the Badger for the national cham-
pionship. Other Michigan wrestlers turning in stellar perform-
ances were Jim Brown (118) who copped third, Bill Davids
" (126) who finished fourth, Gary Ernst (Hwt.) who was also
fourth, aid freshman Jeff Guyton (134) who managed to place
The big disappointment for area fans was the failure of
Wolverine captain Mitch Mendrygal to advance past the pre-
liminaries, thanks to some highly questionable officiating.

Another bright spot in the Michigan winter sport scene this
r year was the Wolverine track team. Proving that track is indeed
back, the thinclads were brilliant over the vacation period,
taking second in the Big Ten and eighth in the NCAA indoor
championships. During the Big Ten meet at Purdue Kim Rowe
set a new world record in the 440 for an 8-lap flat track. Coach
Dixon Farmer's squad finished a mere 10 points behind Indiana
as Steve Adams and Godfrey Murray also won individual titles,
in the shot put and 70-yard high hurdles, respectively.
In the NCAA meet at Cobo Hall in Detroit this past week-
end, Rowe took second in the 440 and Murray third in the 60-
yard high hurdles. The mile relay squad placed fifth, helping the
Blue to its best showing in many years.
Once again the Michigan swimming team had a great
season but couldn't conquer the almighty Indiana Hoosiers. The
Blue tankers finished second, far ahead of the rest of the field.
Individual titles were won by Tom Szuba in the 400-yard medley,
Stu Isaac in the 100-yard breaststroke, and Pat Bauer in the
200-yard breaststroke. A high NCAA finish seems likely.
The Michigan hockey team closed out the season on an
unusually bright note as they stunned North Dakota with a
victory and a tie last weekend. With the 3-2 win and the 4-4 tie
the Wolverine icers broke a losing streak that was longer than
anyone cares to remember. Flaying their final games under
Coach Al Renfrew, the dekers raised their final mark to 5-28-1.

The spring season opened for the baseball team last week as
they took their annual trek to sunny Arizona. The excursion
was not too successful, however, as the diamondmen dropped
all six of their contests. In all fairness it should be noted that
the Arizona schools have been practicing much longer and had
the decided edge in playing experience
In contrast to the baseball team, the lacrosse squad was
highly successful during their stay in Miami. They won all of
the games they played by decisive margins, beating Miami 18-9,
Florida 11-3, and Florida International 20-5. Bill Kilkowski was
one o the standouts on the trip as he accounted for 14 goals
and three assists. The regular season opens this Saturday with
a game against always tough Oberlin.
