McGEE, HARDY LEAD SCORING PARADE:
Second half surge se

.

By CUB SCHWARTZ
Spirit, hope, 'the force'-call it what
you will-the Michigan basketball team
took a liberal dose at halftime last night
and then used it to blow Wisconsin out
in the second half, notching an 83-64 Big
Ten victory.
The Wolverines retired to the
lockerroom after the first twenty
minutes of play knotted with the
Badgers, 32-32, the consequence of what
coach Johnny Orr labeled "listless
play.
MICHIGAN BANISHED the word
from its vocabulary however, out-
scoring Wisconsin 51-32 in the second
stanza, and bringing an unusually quiet
Crisler Arena crowd to its feet in the
final minutes of the game with its inten-
se play.
Once again the shooting of Mike
McGee led the Wolverines. With the
score even at 48 at 12:49 in the second
half the frosh sensation canned a 25 foot
jumper from the corner. It wasn't until
Badgers

7:37 that another Michigan player net-
ted points.
In that five-minute span McGee
reeled off 14 straight points - from un-
der the basket, 25 feet out or the charity
stripe. In the meantime, Wisconsin
cquld only muster seven points, while
committing four fouls, giving Michigan
the bonus situation.
The streak broke whatever momen-
tum the Badgers had, while Michigan
refused to lapse into the second half let-
down which has plagued it so often this
year.
ANOTHER FRESHMAN, Paul Heu-
erman, was also instrumental in the
Wolverines five-minute blitz. Working
defensively on Joe Chrnelich, who had
been taking advantage of an height ad-
vantage over McGee, Heuerman shut
down the 6-7 forward who already
claimed 14 points in the game. Chr-
nelich added only two points in the final
12 minutes.

JUNIOR WOLVERINE forward Alan Hardy seems to be casting a voodoo spell
on Wisconsin's Joe Chrnelich during action in last night's game which saw
Michigan win, 83-64. The Hardy hex did the job, as the Detroit Northwestern
product netted 20 points, while Chrnelich tallied for 16.

Johnson jams Purdue; Hoosiers rip Bucks

THE
FACTS OF
LIGHT

Johnson had only 'six points at half-
time but went to the basket more in the
second half when forward Gregory
Kelser and center Jay Vi ncent got into
foul trouble.
. The Spartans led at halftime, 31-25,
but Walter Jordan scored 11 of his 17
points to bring the Boilermakers to
within three points for most of the
second half.
With 71f minutes left in the game,
Michigan State began to run the clock
down while protecting its slim lead.
The 6-foot-8 Johnson did most of the
ball handling for the Spartans and drew
four fouls as he converted eight out of
eight free throws.
Michigan State remains in first place
in the Big Ten with a 5-0 record. The
Spartans are 13-1 overall. Purdue is 3-2
in the conference and 8-6 overall. -UPI
Hoosiers harass

ford scored eight straight points in the

first-half disadvantage to three at in-
termission and then to one at the start
of the last 20 minutes, also are 2-3 in the
league and 9-5 in all games.

79-76
By BRIAN MARTIN
Negating a distinct height disad-
antage, Michigan's varsity reserve
asketball team outran Eastern
ichigan, 79-76, prior to the varsity
ontest last night.
Although outsized at every match-
p, the quicker Wolverines pressed
early in the game and confused the
Hurons.
"We switched our defenses
throughout the game and they had
trouble adjusting," coach Dan Fife
said. "We beat them in the transi-
tion."
Michigan sprung into a zone press-
and forced the frantic Hurons into
many turnovers. But EMU wasn't
the only error-prone team on the
floor, Michigan also turned the ball

team showed complete recovery from
gheir heartbreaking loss last Sunday to
Chicago-Circle, as they defeated a
totally outmanned Western Michigan
team 128-74.75 last~ night at the
Coliseum.
A personal high all-around score by
Mia Axon of 32.55 paced the rout, as the
tumblers overcame an illness by Sara
Flom which limited her competition in
the meet to two events. Even with the
illness, Flom managed to take first
place in vaulting and second on the
balance beam.
Four different tumblers captured
first places for the Wolverines. In
addition to Flom in vaulting, Ginger
Robey on uneven bars, Colleen Forres-
tel in floor exercise, and Axon on the
balance beam led the gymnasts'
charge. Axon's 8.3 score on the beam
tied the Michigan varsity record.
The tumblers journey to East Lan-
sing Sunday to face perennial gym-
nastics power Michigan. State. They
hope to challenge the Spartans to put
out a top performance to beat them.
"They're (MSU) a betterteam, but
this could be the thing that psyches up
the whole team and everybody could
hit," said assistant coach Don
McElreath. "We want to go there and
try to beat them."
