7:20 ofrthe sudden-death over-

Michigan began the game

lucky to come out of the first
period with a 1-1 tie.
The second period was much
the same, and again Michigan
held on with a -2 tie.
John McCahill put Michigan
into its first lead of the game
three minutes into the third
period. McCahill awakened a

Wolverines were shorthanded.
McCahill skated the length of

Rickey Green, Michigan's
leader in scoring, assists and
steals, most likely will not see
action in today's game against
Illinois at Crisler Arena which
starts at 2:05 p.m.

a drastic change in his condi-

Bill Frieder said at the conclu-

Green. ."I knew what it was."
It will be the first game Green

Dave Baxter, the Wolverine's
third guard, starts in place of
Green. "Dave's a good ball-;
player," said Green. "I think the
team will pull through."
Kent State coach.Rex Hughes,
whose team fell to Michigan,
102-66, described Baxter by say-
ing he's "as good as the players
they have starting."

fears "Michigan will fight just

Women cagers bouced
Special to The Daily
WINDSOR-Michigan's women's basketball team had its
three-game winning streak snapped last night, dropping a 62-52
decision to Eastern Michigan in opening round competition of
the Can-Am Tournament.
"We were out-rebounded and out-hustled," said coach
Carmel Borders of the loss, which lowered the team's rec-
ord to 3-4. "We lost the game on the boards."
Also plagued with erratic shooting, the Wolverines con-
nected on only 28 per cent of their field goal attempts.
Forward Karen Gilhooley was the lone Blue cager to break
into double figures, hitting for 10 points. Donna Travis paced
the Huron scoring attack, netting 21.
The tourney continues today, with the Wolverines facing
Windsor at 9:45 this morning in the consolation bracket.
Women tankers cruise
The Michigan Women's swim team triumphed in 11 of 13
events as they bombed Wisconsin, 82-31, last night at Matt Mann
Pool. Freshwomen Lori Hughes and Liz Lease, both double win-
ners,, led the defending Big Ten champs to their fourth win in
four meets this year and 11th straight dual meet victory, dating
back to the middle of the 1974-75 season.
"We went strong in the beginning to protect ourselves, then
eased off. I'm very happy with the meet," exclaimed dh ob-
viously pleased coach Stu Isaac.
Hughes, the rising young star, remarked, "I was very
happy with my swim in the 1000 yard freestyle and think
overall the team did really well."
Hughes broke her own record -in the 1000 free, winning with
a time of 10:35.37, and also prevailed in the 200 yard butterfly.
Lease, sprinted to victory in the 50 and 100 freestyles.
The divers also performed suberbly. as five girls qualified
for the AIAW Nationals, Junior Chris Seufert and-freshwoman
Lori Wettlaufer placed one-two in the one meter diving, beating
out the Badgers' Peggy Anderson, a national champ. Brenda
Schenthal, Julie Jeffrey and Suzie Honnen all qualified off the
three meter board for Michigan.
Other winners in last night's win included Katy McCully
(200 Free), Sue Andrews (400 individual medley), Chris Den
herder (200 backstroke), Laura Adamson (200 breaststroke)
and both relays.
But the mermaids could not savor their most recent success
for long. Today the team faces arch-rival Michigan State, a
serious title contender, at East Lansing.
Coach Isaac summed up the team's thoughts, "We tried to
go easy against Wisconsin. The big meet is at MSU. That is
going to be a tough one."

Michigan's track team opens
its home season indoors today
hosting the Michigan Relays in
the Track-Tennis building.
The Wolverine coaching staff,
headed by Jack Harvey, hopes
for a clean sweep of the relay
events as well as some NCAA
"WE SHOULD win all the re-
lays - the shuttle-hurdle, sprint
medley, distance medley, mile
and two-mile," said Harvey.
"We'll be stacking our best per-
sonnel in those races, and some
of our guys will be doubling."
Providing most of the compe-
tition will be the thinclads from
Eastern Michigan and Michigan
State. Heading the rest of the
large field will be Kentucky,
Western and Central Michigan
along with most of the other
Mid-American C o n f e r e n c e
"It'll be a good-sized meet,"
noted assistant coach Ron War-
hurst. "There should be 400 to
500 athletes all together."
Since no scores are kept in
the early season meets, the
Blue tracksters will concentrate
on sharpening their skills under
meet conditions in preparation
for upcoming meets, according
IN ADDITION, the coaching
staff welcomes any NCAA quali-
fying times at this point, and
expects the mile relay team to
make that grade this weekend.
"You like to qualify for the
NCAA's as quick as you can."
said sprinter's coach Greg Sy-
phax. "Somebody might get hurt
later on. You just can't tell
what's going to happen."
Syphax anticipates his mile
relay quartet, made up of David
Furst, James Grace, Doug Hen-
nigar and Jeff McLeod, to quali-
fy tomorrow. "I don't think that
anyone is going to be able to
touch those guys," yphax said.
PHYSICALLY, the Wolverines
will be without the services of
Mark Foster and Peter Running,
both hobbled with leg ailments.
Another blow to the squad
came this week as tailback Har-
lan Huckleby announced that he
has quit track'to concentrate on
football. "That's definitely going
to hurt us," said Harvey. "Huck-
leby is a super athlete and a
great runner, but I guess he lost
his desire to run."
Preliminaries for today's meet
begin at 2:00 p.m., with finals

Pistons rock Rockets
DETROIT - The Detroit Pistons, ignited by a Kevin Porter
basket, exploded with a 31-10 first half barrage and went on to
clip the Houston Rockets, 109-86, last night.
Detroit never trailed after the basket by Porter broke a 28-
28 tie with three minutes to go in the first period, spurting out
to a 59-38 halftime margin.
The Pistons went on to lead by as many as 23 points in
the third period before the Rockets rallied on the scoring of
Moses Malone and Mike Newlin to cut the gap to 83-77 with
eight minutes remaining.
From then on, it was all Detroit as M. L. Carr and Howard
Porter combined for five and four baskets respectively, in the
Pistons scoring explosion, outscoring Houston 26-9.
Carr finished with 24 points while Bob Lanier chipped in with
20 for Detroit. Malone and former Michigan star Rudy Tomjano-
vich each had 17 for the Rockets, who by' losing fell out of a
virtual tie with idle Cleveland for the Central Division lead.
The Pistons featured three other scorers in double figures
as Chris Ford tallied 16, Kevin Porter 14, and Howard Porter 12.
