By DON MacLACHLAN
MICHIGAN had a tough time getting things rolling last night -
something it can ill afford tomorrow in the showdown with
Minnesota. With eight minutes to play in the first half the Blue
held a slim 23-21 lead.
"We kinda played strange for awhile," said Michigan coach
Johnny Orr. "It just went back and forth and back and forth."
Finally, the Wolverines got things in gear and pulled away
from the Hawkeyes. Juniors Dave Baxter and JoelThompson
came off the bench and all of a sudden Michigan was back into
its running game.
Thompson tallied ten first half points and ripped down
five caroms in addition to rejecting one shot. The junior
jumping jack- seems to have broken out of his slump of late,
in which Thompson would quickly get into foul trouble and
had problems hitting his outside shots.
"I'm working on being more laggressive and improving my
defense" Thompson said.
"Joel gave us a great lift and that is why we started him in
the second half," said assistant coach Bill Frieder. "When he
shoots like that we have to get him on the floor. He really adds
to our offense."
- Tom Staton was all over the floor and the 6-3 forward was
rining down rebounds (he had eight for the game) and firing
qick outlet passes to get the fast break going. Baxterkept
things moving with his fine ball handling and his fine shoot-
The junior from Deroit was hustling and deflecting passes and
getting the ball down thecourt. He drove fearlessly inside and
hit Thompson with a couple of back door passes which resulted
in easy lay-ups. Michigan was running and looked sharp. '
Yet, a problem the Wolverines have been plagued with all
season is inconsistency. Michigan has played in spurts - gener-
ating exlosiveness on offense at times, and pressuring opponents
tenacio"sly on defense. Yet on other occasions ithas been vic-
timized by standing around and waiting for things to happen.
Consistency a key
"Our biggest problem is we have to be consistent," Orr
said. "At Iowa City and Minneapolis we were consistent al-
most the whole time."
Michiganplayed its best game of the season in the 86-80 vic-
tory over Minnesota eleven days ago. However, in another big
contest five days ago, the Wolverines just couldn't put things to-
gether in the second half and lost to Indiana 73-64.
"We shot just miserably against Indiana but we played pret-
ty wel," Orr said. "Now we're right back where we were a week
ago Monday - the big game with Minnesota. It should be a
Tomorrow's clash in Crisler should be a dandy if the Wol-
verines can put things together and come out sharp for 40 min-
utes. They gave just a little extra firepower in Minneapolis and
the same effort will be required to push them past the Gophers
"We have to keep the intensity throughout the game if
we are to beat Minnesota," said co-captain Steve Grote. "We
just had that bad game at Indiana but that as so far from
how Michigan is capable of playing that e just have to
"We are here at home and the fans pulling for us will be a
big factor," said Staton. "They (Minnesota) will really be gun-
ning for us because the league championship is at stake."
"At Minnesota we came up with one of ou' greatest efforts
of the season," Frieder said. "If we play an average or good
game tomorrow we are in trouble."
