-V cagers capsize
By BRIAN MARTIN
In a run-and-gun show without much emphasis of defense, the Wolverine
varsity reserves sent the St. Clair Shores Community College Skippers (say
that fast five times) home with a 76-67 loss.
Pacing the Wolverine win with 16 points each were crisp-shooting Buddy
Van DeWage and his explosive running mate Ray Owens. Van DeWage scor-
ched the nets with his jumpers, many from long range, hitting at a 53 per
Although Michigan jumped out quickly and led throughout the game,
head coach Dan Fife was not pleased with his team's performance.
"It's nice to win, but I'm not impressed by the way we played," Fife
said. "It looked like ten people standing still in the first half."
Indeed, both teams played lethargically for the most part of the first
stanza, with the exception of the spirited play from forward Chris Fielder.
Fielder finished the night with four steals and scored 14 points.
"Fielder played well for us, picking up a lot of loose balls," Fife com-
mented. "Otherwise, nobody really played well."
Center Carl Schultz played perhaps his best game of the year, pulling off
11 caroms from the boards, leading both teams.
The Skippers were led by forward Hank Boyd, who poured in 16 points.
The JV's, raising their record to 4-2, will meet the Michigan State JV's
Saturday at noon, seeking to avenge the loss last week in East Lansing.

LOOK TO END TAILSPIN:
Optimistic ? icers ace Bulldogs
By BOB MILLER
There are two ways of looking at
the slump that is plaguing th'e
Michigan icers. There is an optimis-
tic and a pessimistic point of view.
THE PESSIMIST at this point
might also be the realist. The
Wolverines have lost an unbelievable
11 WCHA gamesi in their last ,12
outings. The defense has deteriorat-
ed to the point that the weakest offen-
sive team in the league (Notre
Dame) blitzed the Michigan nets for
12 goals last weekend while the
Wolverines could only counter with
And while on the subject of scoring
power, Dan Farrell's squad has run
the gamut, from their zenith against
Wisconsin in early December when
the icers paralyzed the Badgers with
18 goals in a weekend series, to the
four latest disasters - being out-
scored by Denver and the Irish 35-11.
To add further to Michigan's
problefns, Notre Dame's sweep last
weekend pulled them within one
point of the Wolverines in the
standings. This means that the icers
could conceivably find themselves as
far down in the race as seventh place
HOWEVER, Michigan is thinking
only of this weekend's opponent, the
Bulldogs of Minnesota - Duluth
(UMD). Coach Gus Hendrickson's
squad is vastly improved from last
year when the Bulldogs won a total of
only six games and tied two in the
32-game WCHA schedule.
UMD is currently 7-16-1 in the
conference, and to get an idea of the
caliber of the two teams that square
off tonight in Duluth, their combined
records over the last four weeks is
But even on a team like the
Bulldogs, there are some individual
stars. Defenseman Curt Giles is one
of the best in UMD history, holding
team assist and total points record
for blueliners. Giles was an honor-
able mention WCHA All-Star last sea-
GOALIE RICK Heinz is the team's
top netminder, and considering who
he plays for, his goals against
average (undei five a game) is
Center Dan Lempe was the WCHA
rookie of the year last year, a
second-team WCHA All-Star and last
year's leading scorer. This year
Giles leads the team with 38 points (6-
32) to Lempe's 34 ( 12-22).
As was mentioned before, there is
an optimistic version to the Michigan
slump story, With their 13-15 overall
record, the Wolverines are 'in no
danger ofhhaving their worst season
ever. That dubious honor came in
1973, the year before Farrell became
coach, when the icers finished with
an embarrassing 6-27-1 mark.
AND JUST TO add more misery to
the company, UMD put back-to-back
5-23 and 6-23 seasons in 1968 and '69.
In fact, some of the more notable
wretched records around the league
belong to North Dakota (6-28-2 in
1975), Minnesota's 8-24 in 1972, and
owners of the most amazing season
of them all, the unanimous award
would have to go to the Colorado
College Tigers of 1962 who failed to
win a game all year (0-23).
Because neither team has anything
to lose by it, the UMD-Michigan
games might just turn out to be a free
wheeling "who gives a damn" type of
series. Tonight's game starts at 9:00
in Ann Arbor with an 8:30 face-off the
