Special to The Daily
DULUTH-Michigan's slump in
hockey is now "the slump" with a
capital 'T.'
Minnesota-Duluth saw to that last
rlight with a six to one victory over the
icers for a sweep of the two game series
after an eight to seven overtime trium-
ph on Friday.

in the game, but in the end Michigan

Duluth took a 1-0 lead into the dress-
ing room after the first period. Curt
Giles powered home a slap shot on the
power play to give the Bulldogs the ad-
Vaitage. It was Giles' fourth goal in the
weekend series.
tZimmerman was the star of the
period as he stopped 20 Duluth shots,

scoreboard, his teammates were
having no luck getting on the board.
Michigan took 11 shots on the
Bulldogs Rich Heinz, most of them

strong shots in close, however, the,
Wolverines could not beat Heinz.
For the second straight evening
Michigan didn't look like a team
harrassed by a slump after the first 20
minutes. But as was the case Friday
night the Wolverines somehow
managed to louse up a number of
scoring opportunities, which would
have changed the complexion of the
game completely.
INSTEAD OF owning a large lead,
Michigan had to play catch-up hockey.
The crowd warmed up to the free-
wheeling affair as the second period
was mostly up and down action with
few whistles. UMD kept peppering
Zimmerman with blistering shots
which kept the fans enthralled
throughout the period.
Duluth's Stan Palmer scored his
second unofficial goal in two nights
midway though the period. Zimmer-
man was out of the crease after stop-

ping one Bulldog shot, but Palmer
picked up the loose puck and sent it
towards Michigan's open net.
TIM MANNING stepped in front of
the shot at the last moment preventing
the goal, but the red light went on
anyway. However, the referee
overruled the goal judge saying the
puck never went over the red line.
Two shorthanded goals on the same
penalty by John Harrington, in the
thrid period salted the game away for
Duluth. The icers are now in seventh

Junior Spartans rout
listless cagers, 85-71

Last week Michigan's varsity reser-
ves lost to Michigan State in the closing
minutes because of the hustling play of
fiery Spartan guard John Haines.
Yesterday the Wolverines fell to the
Spartans because the entire MSU squad
outplayed Michigan for most of the
game, sending the Spartans back to
East Lansing with a 85-71 runaway.
"Wegot outhustled today," head
coach Dan Fife said. "When the ball's
loose and they (MSU) have three guys
going after it and we only have three
pairs of eyes, you don't get many."

It appeared that the Wolverines were
going to avenge the earlier loss to MSU
in the beginning of the contest, running
out to a quick 12-4 lead. But a Spartan
time out deflated Michigan's momen-
tum and aided by two consecutive Blue
turnovers, MSU fought back to take the
lead at 14-12.
The two teams traded baskets for the
following 15-minute span until Spartan
center Gerald Gilkie tipped in his own
missed stuff on his fourth try to put
MSU ahead to stay, 28-26.
In the remaining first half ticks on the
clock, the Spartans exploited their size
in close as Gilkie and forward Mike
Longaker, combined for ten straight
points to make the rest of the game
Blue uphill battle.
Wolverine guard Ray Owens put
together two 14-point halves to lead all
scorers with 28. The only other
Wolverine to reach double figures was
forward Chris Fielder, who added six
steals and nine rebounds to his ten poin-
Cold shooting hampered any
Michigan comeback attempts as the
Wolverines could only can 37 per cent of
their field goal attempts for the game.

The Wolverine men's swimming
team out-stroked Ohio State yesterday,
66-47, in what diving coach Dick Kim-
ball called "a close meet" with "some
fast times" and a hotly contested 3-

a mere half point.
In that event Buckeye Kent Vosler
