skating wounded
By ERROL SHIFMAN
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE between a hospital ward and
the Michigan hockey team?
The difference is that the patients on the Michigan team
have a schedule to play and can't sit around for rest and
recuperation.
There are currently five Blue icers ailing with what most
of us would consider serious injuries:
! Dave Brennan - Dave is probably out for the season"
with a sprained neck. He has tried to skate but has found
it too painful.
" Doug Todd - Doug has been out six weeks with strained
knee ligaments but is ready to skate full out and is practicing.
*-Gary Morrison - With a broken bone in his hand, Gary
has been playing regularly.
*Dan Hoene - Incredibly, Dan is playing with a broken
jaw.
! John Waymann - You'd figure that above all else you
need two healthy feet to play hockey but John is playing with
a broken foot.
What would drive someone to play under such obvious
discomfort? Stupidity? Maybe, but I think not. It's more
like dedication.'

By DON MacLACHLAN
For the Michigan basketball
team, tonight's clash with Illi-
nois is a crucial one - it eith-
er takes the pressure off the
Wolverines or throws them into
the pressurizer.
"We're ready physically and
mentally ,-- as well as we've
been all year," said Michigan
coach Johnny Orr. "We know
the importance of the game-
it could definitely make us the
Big Ten co-champions."
However, if the Wolverines
(14-2 Big Ten) fail to win to-
night, the race for the Big Ten
title would be wide open again.
Purdue (12-4 Big Ten) would
move into the title picture -
and Michigan must travel to
West Lafayette Saturday.
"This game is very crucial
for us," said assistant coach
Bill Frieder. "We'd hate to go
into Purdue needing to win.
"They (Illinois) have always
played us very well in Cham-

handle before falling, 72-70.
Junior guard Audie Matthews
paces the Illino attack. Mat-
thews has connected on 52 per
cent of his field goal attempts
and averages 17.1 points perj
contest.
The teams two leading re-
bounders, Rich Adams and Levi
Cobb, average in double figures
also. Guard Steve Lanter, Illi-
nois' floor leader, dishes out
four assists per game.
Coach Lou Henson needs a
victory tonight to assure his
squad (14-14 overall) of its
second consecutive winning

season. The Illini will be out
to avenge a 66-61 loss to Michi-
gan in January - when the
Wolverines played without
guard Rickey Green.
Green will be on hand tonight
though, and needs only eight
points to move into eighth place
on Michigan's all-time scoring
list. The senior All-American
averages 20.5 points per game,
and leads the Blue in assists
with 97.
Michigan has a number to
settle with the Illini also. Last
year the Wolverines lost in
Champaign 76-75, blowing a
three-point lead in the final 38
seconds. A tip-in by John Robin-
son at the buzzer was nullified
"Every game is a one or two
pointer in Champaign," Fried-
er said. "They'll slow it up and
keep it close. They run a delib-
erate offense. But we'll try to
press and keep the game mov-
ing."
A Wolverine victory tonight
clinches at least a share of the

Big Ten title and a trip to the
NCAA Mideast Regional in
Bloomington. Putting this con-
test in the win column would'
also give Michigan its highest
win total ever in Big Ten playj
(15) and in the regular seasonI
(22). Both records currently be-
long to last year's squad.
Tonight's clash in Cham-
paign is the first of three in
four days for the third-rank-
ed Wolverines. After invading
Purdue on Saturday, Michigan
quickly returns home to lockj
hornswith the Warriors of
Marquette Sunday in Crisler
Arena.
If Michigan wins tonight and
Minnesota falters at Wisconsin,
the Wolverines will be undis-
puted Big Ten champs - for;
the first time since 1966.
Interestingly enough, if Mich-
igan wins all three of the up-'
coming games and if Notre'
Dame beats San Francisco and
Tennessee manages to upend
Kentucky on Saturday, the Wol-
verines could end up the regu-
lar season right where they
started it - ranked number
one in the country.

as the Michigan women's basketball team defeated Oak-
land in the first round of the state tournament last night.
SOPHOMORE NATASHA CENDER pumped in 20 points
and grabbed 16 rebounds while Lydia Sims and Kathryn
Young contributed 12 points apiece.
"Our girls played with more hustle and aggression
than all year," said coach Carmel Borders, "we vrorked
for the inside shots."
The win moves the Wolverines into the second round
of the tournaient, meeting Western Michigan today at
Grand Valley.
The Wolverines have met the Broncos three times
already this year and have met defeat each time.
"Western has very good shooters," said Borders, "we
have to deny them the second and third shots to win."

two titles from last year, in the 60 and 300
yard dashes.
Misfortune struck the Badger team last week,
however, when their bus flipped after a meet.
Mark Randall, a strong half-miler, sustained
severe leg cuts and bruises in the accident and
is out of the meet.
Some interesting match-ups await the Wol-

sprinter Doug Hennigar both face stiff compe-
tition.
Stokes, who won last year with a record vault
of 16-6 and last week upped the mark to 17-1/4,
is pitted against two other 17-foot vaulters --
Illinois' Doug Laz and Indiana's Bob Crites.
Stokes feels that he may have to better lastI
week's effort to win.
"IT COULD POSSIBLY take 17-4 to win it,"
he said. "After I get my timing and confidence
at new heights, I'm usually pretty, consistent.
I'm ready to go."
Henniger, who has covered the 60 in a con-
sistent 6.1 for the past few weeks, expects the
stiffest competition from Michigan State's fresh-
man sensation, Randy Smith.

For Michigan, the 1977 Big!
Ten wrestling meet looks to .be
a hotly-contested battle for sec-
ond place. Entering the meet
with a 5-2 conference record,
the Wolverine wrestlers are
ranked third among Big Ten
teams.
"It'll be a dogfight between
us, Wisconsin and Minnesota,"
Michigan coach Bill JohannesenI

wrestle up to our ability." n
In previous matches this
season, the Wolverines defeat-
ed Minnesota, while losing to
Wisconsin.

a shoo-in for taking the Big Ten
title for the second year in a
row after a perfect Big Ten sea-
son.

meet," Johannesen said. "We
have to score at those weights."!
Also contributing to the Wol-
verine attack will be. senior
Ed Neiswender (167) who 'Jo-
hannesen feels will be seeded
second, too. His chief compe-
tition will come from Mike
DeAnna of Iowa who defeated,
him earlier this season, 6-4.
158-pounder Brad dolman
looks to be ranked third behind
last year's national and Big 10
champion Lee Kemp of Wiscon-
sin and last year's Big Ten run-
ner-up Mike McGivern of Iowa.

Holman finished third in the
1976 tournament.
At 190 Wolverine Harold
King will face National cham-
pion Evan Johnson of Minne-
sota, national runner-up Greg

beaten Stevens twice and tied
