NCAA BERTH AT STAKE

- -- --

Blue
By ERROL SHIFMAN
On to Detroit.
That will be the next stop for the win
tonight's Michigan-Bowling Green State
versity (BGSU) hockey game at Yost at
Detroit's Olympia Stadium will be the s
the NCAA hockey championships.
BESIDES THE honor of participating
NCAA tourney, the Wolverines and the F.
of Bowling Green have added incentive
winning tonight.
Michigan (26-16) has not qualified fi
semis in 12 years, when they won the
title in 1964. A tournament berth could
give the Blue another shot at Wisconsin
team which defeated them for the WCHA
pionship.
Bowling Green (28-10), champion of the
tral Collegiate Hockey Association (CCE
the first team from outside the WCHA or
to be given a chance at the NCAA tourn
since Michigan won the first title in 1948
BOWLING GREEN athletic director
Young summed up his school's feelings
their selection:
"We are thrilled to death to be the first
outside the WCHA in the west to be select
the tournament," Young said, "It's an hc
have the opportunity to represent the CCF
other independent college hockey teams
championship."
Michigan will have the home ice advn
but that doesn't really bother Falcon
Ron Mason.

"I don't really care. The NCAA decided (to
play at Yost) based on attendance capaciy,"'
said Mason. "The big thing is that we're so'
close that we can bring a lot of fans along.
That will help."
"The home team has at least a one goal ad-
vantage," added Mason. "If we play an excep-
tional game, we have a chance, if we play an
average game, we're in trouble."
IF PAST performance is any indication, Bowl-
ing Green will need all tse help they can get.
In four previous meetings, the Falcons have yet
to defeat the Wolverines. The teams last tangled
last season when Michigan took a 7-6 win on
Dave Debol's winning goal.
The Bowling Green attack is led by St. Clair
Shores native Mark Wells and John Markell.j
Both are freshmen arrd both shared the CCHA
scoring title.!
Wells picked up 23 goals and 37 assists for
the season while Markell led the team with 26
goals.
Bowling Green lacks Michigan's scoring punch
but are endowed with a strong defense.
THE BACKBONE of that defense is the net-
minder Mike Liut. Liut received CCHA player'
of the year honors based on a fine 2.53 goals
against average and two shutouts.
The Falcon's key to their CCHA championship
series victories was their penalty killing. Bowl-'
ing Greep killed 15 of 16 -penalties and scored
one shorthanded goal. Sophom6re John Mavity
and 6'4, 200 pound Ken Morrow lead the defense.

Houston's hopes, say both
Cougar Coach Guy Lewis and
St. Bonaventure mentor Jim
S'atalin, could rise or fall on the
play of Houston's Otis Bird-
song, the tournament's leading
scorer with 78 points in three
games.
Despite Birdsong's point pro-
duction, Lewis laments that
the 6-foot-4 guard is not play-
ing up to par. Birdsong's 26-
point per-game average for
the tourney is four shy of his
season average.
"If Birdsong is having a bad
tournament and he has a good
game against us, then we are
in for bad, bad trouble," said
Satalin. "He is one super play-
