Inspirational posters, the
likes of "Jar 'em, Jarry," hung;
from the walls of Michigan
Coliseum. The Michigan pep
band was busy serenading the
fans, and a cheering war be-
tween Wolverine and Spar-
tan partisans was in full
force. All this before the open-
ing face-off in last night's
Michigan - Michigan S t a t e

For the followers of Maize and'

Though Michigan continues to
lose, somehow the players retain
confidence. Following the loss,
Angie Moretto predicted, "We
should make the playoffs. But even
if we don't, we'll play the spoiler

Somehow, it's hard to imagine

anything for anybody. But, we'll,

SCORING

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Two free throws by
John Brisker with six seconds left
enabled the Seattle Supersonics to
edge the Detroit Pistons 106-104 in
a National Basketball Association
game last night.
It was the second straight vic-
tory and third in the last four
games for new Seattle coach Mor-
ris Buckwalter, who took over one
week ago.
Brisker and Spencer Haywood,
both former Detroit-area college
stars, provided the big scoring
punch for the Sonics, who saw an
85-71 lead early in the fourth per-
iod vanish under a 25-10 Detroit
onslaught before Brisker finally
tossed in the winning shots.
Haywood had 18 points, Brisker
21 and guard Vick Snyder 18 for
the Sonics, who outscored Detroit
28-16 in the third period and ap-
peared to be sailing along until
the Pistons came alive in the
fourth period.
With Dave Bing knocking in 11
points and Bob Lanier 8, the Pis-
tons grabbed a 96-95 lead. The
score was then tied 100-100 and
104-104 when Brisker got his
chance.
The Sonics tossed in 47 baskets,
10 more than Detroit, as the Pis-
tons staged a merry parade to the
foul line, hitting on 30 of 38 at-
tempts to only 12 of 15 for Seattle.
But Seattle's final six points
came from the free throw line.
Bing with 26 points and Stu Lantz
with 20 points topped the Pistons,
who protested the game in the
third period with coach Ray Scott
claiming "poor officiating" for his
reason.
Celtics sweep
BOSTON-Dave Cowens pumped
in 35 points and hauled down 20
rebounds last night as the Boston
Celtics extended their winning
streak to seven games with a
117-99 National Basketball Asso-
ciation victory over the Portland
Trailblazers.
Cowens and John Havlicek, who
threw in 24 points, combined to
lead the Celtics to an 18-5 advant-
age in the first five minutes of
the game, a lead they never re-
liquished.
T he Trailblazers, who have lost
six games in a row, managed to
cut its deficit to one point when
Sidney Wicks scored two of his
19 point total with 2:32 remaining
in the second period.
t

Hawks hover
PHILADELPHIA - The Atlanta
Hawks, with six players scoring
in double figures, pulled away in
the final quarter for a 122.106 vic-
tory over the Philadelphia 76ers
yesterday in a National Basketball
Association contest.
Pete Maravich and Lou Hudson
sparked the winners with 25 and
22 points, respectively, and played
big roles in Atlanta's final period
spurt.
Philadelphia led 91-89 at the
start of the last quarter, but At-
lanta then ran off nine straight
points for a 98-91 lead with 7:51
left.
The Hawks boosted their lead
to nine points, at 104-95, and Phila-
delphia could never cut its deficit
to less than five points the rest of
the way.
Wings whacked
DETROIT - The Chicago Black
Hawks scored three times in the
third period and rallied for a 6-4
victory over the Detroit Red Wings
in National Hockey League action
last night.
The loss snapped the Wings' six-
game winning streak and ran their
losing streak against Chicago to 14
straight.
Chicago's three unanswered goals
were by Cliff Koroll, Jean Borde-
leau and Dick Redmond, the last
into an empty net.
The Black Hawks jumped off to
a quick 2-0 lead on goals by Pit
Martin and Jim Tappin before
Mickey Redmond put the Wings on
the scoreboard at 15:15.
Guy Charron and Marcel Dion
added two more goals late in the
period to send the Wings into the
dressing room with a 3-2 lead.

Sports of The Dai ly
Joe and Cj...
...contrasting styles
By TONY SCHWARTZ
JOE JOHNSON'S 150 LBS. are distributed tightly over a slender
5-10 frame. If it's a disadvantage, it doesn't phase him:
"I know from experience how hard it is to check a quick little
guy." And that's what Joe is, extremely quick. When he gets an
outlet pass he fairly explodes up court with the ball.
C. J. Kupec looks just like the defensive end he was in high
school.' (Bo Schembechler since switched him to tight end). But
at 6-8 and 225 lbs, he doesn't play like most big men. C. J. is
happier on the outside with a little shooting room and a chance
to handle the ball.
On the court, Joe is a backslapper, the take-charge guy who
increasingly generates confidence and excitement by his leader-
ship and play.
C. J. is less emotional. He is shy, taciturn and seems just
a bit embarrassed by the publicity inevitably attendant upon
success.
Neither player's heroics show up in the flashy scoring and
rebounding statistics. But that isn't really surprising when a
team has two established superstars, and two other proven
senior starters. Joe's role has been as a playmaker, an indis-
pensable element Michigan lacked last year.
It was a slow start for Johnson. He committed far too many
turnovers and had trouble adjusting whenMichigan slowed down
its offense. As a freshman, on a team that ran the fast break
as well as most varsity clubs, Johnson chipped in almost 20
points a game, and was able to drive at will.
This season the going got a little rougher, and Joe often
found the lane clogged when he drove.
The nadir was against Ohio State, a game Joe calls "the
worst of my career, college or high school." He committed nu-
merous turnovers and simply did not 'look like a team leader.
"I made a lot of mistakes, but I feel I'm a good enough ball-
player to adjust to any game. I just didn't do it fast enough."
He's adjusted now. In the last two games he has committed
only three turnovers and against Michigan State and their ber-
serk crowd of partisan fans, Johnny Orr called his floor game
"flawless".
For C. J., it has been a similar switch. He fared poorly in
New York at the Holiday Festival, but since then he has come
off the bench in each of the last three games to help spark
the team when it was down.
C. J. has also played an important role in a new Michigan
tactic, the stall. Ballhandling chores in those situations have
been handled primarily by Joe Johnson, Wilmore, and - you
guessed it, C. J.
Considering that no more than a few months ago, the con-
tributions Kupec and Johnson would make to Michigan basket-
ball this seasonrwere ofsome doubt, their contributions have
been all the more appreciated.
In June, Joe was playing what he felt was the best basket-
ball of his life down in a small high gym in Detroit, where things
sometimes have a tendency to get out of hand.
When a friend got into an argument with some opponents
during a pick-up game ,and Joe tried to interfere, he ended up
with a bullet in his arm and in his chest.
Although the injury didn't do any permanent physical dam-
age, it was psychologically devastating. Johnson calls the three
weeks he spent in the hospital convalescing "the worst of my
life."
Having fancied himself a varsity starter from the middle
of his freshman season on, he was seized with a fear that he
wouldn't get his game back when he started playing again. He
didn't for a long time, but by the end of the summer things be-
gan to fall back into place.
C. J.'s -situation wasn't a personally traumatic one like Joe's,
but it might have been for Michigan's basketball fortunes. In
November it began to look as if Michigan was an almost sure

By THERESA SWEDO
Without Ray Gura in good health,
the Wolverine gymnasts face a
heady challenge tonight at 8:00
p.m. in Crisler Arena. Against
Southern Illinois, the NCAA's best,
Michigan must put together some
outstanding performances to win.
Gura, one of the three seniors
on Loken's young squad, injured
his ankle last Saturday in the Ohio
State's dual meet. He suffered an
ankle sprain, and the swelling that
resulted will hamper Gura's per-
formance tonight.
Gura, the captain of the team,
captured the all-around title in the
Ohio State meet. He posted a 9.0
in side horse competition, fin-
ishing with a 52.10 total.
Battling the defending NCAA
champs tonight, the Wolverines
will turn to Bruce Medd and Bruce
Keeshin to help Gura out.
"Gura's injury means losing a
sure nine plus score in floor ex-
ercise and vaulting, and to date
Medd and Keeshin have not scored
that high. They'll be trying,
though," Loken commented.
Veterans Ward Black and Terry
Boys plan to upset a highly touted
Southern Illinois floor exercise
team. The talented Saluki com-
bination boasts two standouts, Gary

Morava rates as one of the top

tion. He scores over nine in all
