FACE BLUE IN NCAA FINALS

Badgers win 4-3

By RICK MADDOCK
Special to The Daily

Eaves rifled a shot from the right face-
off circle at :42 of overtime lifting Wis-
consin to a 4-3 NCAA semi-final victory
over New Hampshire at Olympia Stadium
last night.

DETROITE
Now there are only two teams left. All the others have
fallen by the wayside leaving Michigan and Wisconsin to battle
it out for the NCAA hockey crown.
The contest won't be anything new. The two teams have
already faced each other six times this year.
Wisconsin has the decided edge record-wise, having won;
five of the six contests. Included ,among those five are two
Wins at Ann Arbor and three in Madison.
Michigan therefore comes in as the decided underdog.
But the game tonight is for a national championship and in
big games you can often throw the record book away. New
Hampshire nearly proved that tonight. The scrappy Wild-
cats nearly put it to the Badgers, who are the nation's first
rated team.
Wisconsin will be playing after only 24 hours of rest and}
the tight contest with New Hampshire could take its toll. As
Wildcat coach Charlie Holt put it "This is going to make the
championship game a good one. It's going to be tough for
Wisconsin to play back to back."
The Wolverines will have to play inspired hockey if they
hope to upend the Big Red, however. Their weaknesses are
few and far between as the Wildcats eventually discovered.
Defensively Wisconsin is awesome. Except for a rare three-
goal first period, they completely shut down the New Hamp-
shire offense.
The three-goal total was right on Julian Baretta's goals
per game average. In the last two periods Baretta demon-
strated his All-American prowess. He will be a tough bar-
rier for the Wolverines to penetrate.
Baretta's success is largely due to the talents of two Minne-
sota natives, John Taft and Craig Norwich. Taft handles the
stick superbly, breaking up offensive charges on many occa-
sions last night. Norwich is equally talented defensively and
adds tremendovs offensive punch to boot. The junior All-Ameri-
can was the WCHAs third leading scorer and leads the team
with 81 points.
In the third period of last night's game, the Wisconsin de-
fense allowed only two shots from inside the face off circles,
further attesting to their strength in the stretch.
Offensively they are just as impressive, with yet another
All-American leading the charge. Senior Mike Eaves was the
second leading scorer for the Badgers this season and com-
bined-with freshman Mark Johnson is a threat from any-
where..
Their offensive pressure never lets up. Wisconsin nearly
missed on half a dozen close in tries and could have easily have
blown the Wildcats out with a little luck.
And then there is the crowd. With the game in nearby
Detroit, Michigan might have expected a home crowd advan-
tage. The Wolverine fans will have to yell their lungs out, how-
ever, if they hope to compete with Wisconsin's Red Hoards.
Badger fans in numbers close to 5,000 came to cheer
their team to victory. Their relentless cheering was deafen-
ing last night.
I think you will have to go to next year's Ohio State foot-
ball game to match the crowd enthusiasm that is sure to over-
flow tonight.
But, as Wisconsin mentor Bob Johnson pointed out, "Michi-
gan has a fine team of their own."
The Wolverines are confident they can win it. Michigan
goalie Rick Palmer put it this way, "I think we can win it,
we have never been out of a game with them this year."
Consider also that Michigan has made it into the finals
eight times and has been denied only once.
Will history continue to repeat itself?

The junior All-American center scored
his 28th goal of the season, winning a
game that his team never led. The vic-
tory sends Wisconsin against Michigan
for the NCAA title tonight at 7:30. The
WCHA boasts it's fifth straight domina-
tion of the NCAA title clash.
WISCONSIN COACH Bob Johnson ex-
plained that players have several options
on winning faceoffs. He said they can go
backward, for ward or to a side.
"On this particular play, he (Eaves)
went forward," Johnson said. "It was a
good play by Mike Eaves, give him all
the credit in the world."
With the score 3-2 after the first period,
the game looked like it was going to be
an offensive battle. Wisconsin goalie Julian
Baretta's average was 3.01 going into the
game, while New Hampshire goalie Dan
Magnarelli had a 4.49 goal a game av-
erage.
Yet after the first twenty minutes,
Magnarelli looked the better goalie. He
made several saves on point-blank shots.
Baretta, struggled in the first period, even
allowing a goal that went between his
legs.
THE BADGER NETMINDER had no

problems the rest of the evening, partly
due to his calming down, but mostly be-
cause New Hampshire eased up. Baretta
had 23 saves compared to 39 for Mag-
narelli.
Another difference between the two
goalie's performances was the shots they
saved. Twenty-five of Magnarelli's saves
were made on shots that were from the
middle of the slot or closer.
JOHNSON WAS VISIBLY relieved aft-
er his team's comeback win. "We won the
game. Throw all the statistics out, we won
the game 4-3 in overtime," he concluded.
New Hampshire initiated the scoring
at 11:57 when forward Bruce Crowder
scored on a point-blank shot. He receiv-
ed the puck from Gary Burns, who was
behind the net.
THE WILDCATS surged ahead by two
when they tallied a short-handed goal.
Burns skated the puck the length of the
ice untouched. He stickhandled past the
charging Baretta and poked the puck into
the empty net at 14:58.
Thirty-eight seconds later, Wisconsin
closed the gap to 2-1 thanks to center
Dave Herbst. He tried slamming the puck
through the back door, but was rejected
by Magnarelli. The Wildcat save rebound-
ed back to Herbst which he promptly re-
turned, this time for a goal.
Twelve seconds later, at 15:48, the Wild-
cats regained their two-goal lead. For-
ward John Fontas won a faceoff in the
Wisconsin zone. He skated the puck near
the edge of the crease and sent it home.

InOT
THE BADGERS tightened the score to
3-2 at 17:37. Mark Johnson fired a slap-
shot from inches behind the left'faceoff
circle. Mike Meeker, who was crouching
in the slot, tipped the shot past Magna-
relli.
The game remained 3-2 until 11:42 of
the third period, when Les Grauer fired
a slapshot past Magnarelli's left ankle.
The win was a hard fought one, some-
what surprisingly so to the Badgers. "I
knew they were a good team, but they
were a little more physical than I thought
they'd be," Johnson admitted.

Kenyans

stir

track

debate

By DAVE RENBARGER
To recruit foreigners, or not
to recruit foreigners, that is the
question.
While most of the track coach-
es around the NCAA, including
those at Michigan, ponder this
controversial question, two of
their colleagues continue their
world-wide track talent quest,
having cornered the rich mar-
ket of seemingly unbeatable
Kenyan runners.
Michigan track coach Jack
Harvey and his cross coun-
try counterpart Ron Warhurst
steadfastly refuse to become
involved in a treasure hunt,
across the Dark Continent,j
sticking almost exclusively to
American born and bred ath-
letes.
But both Harvey and War-
hurst could be found at Cobo
Arena earlier this month, quiet-
ly muttering certain unprint-
able remarks after watching
the Kenyan - stocked teams
from Washington State and
Texas-El Paso dominate an im-
pressive field at the NCAA In-
door National Championships.
This year's title went to the
Cougars from WSU, as they
edged UTEP by one-half point.
Kenyan domination of the
NCAA track circuit is certainly
nothing new. Since UTEP ac-
tively began recruiting from
the East African nation, the
Miners have held a lock on the
Indoor Nationals, winning it
three straight years before this
year's narrow defeat.
The Kenyan running ma-
chines have enjoyed similar
triumphs on the NCAA's cross
country courses.

pionship trophies sit in their
cases in El Paso, Texas and
Pullman, Washington. Their
owners don't seem to be over-
ly concerned with all the com-
motion.
"A lot of people like to criti-
cize us for what we do here and
they may have a few legitimate
gripes," said UTEP coach
Ted Banks. "But there have
also been a lot of false accusa-
tions about the Kenyans."
Banks currently has eight
Kenyan natives on his squad,
having established a "pipe-
line" while bringing over
some of the very best.
"I understand that we don't
have the best there are," com-
mented Banks. "My kids are
supposedly from the wrong
tribe."
Banks admits to the claim of
the age advantage, while shed-
ding little light as to actual
ages of most of his runners.
"The age thing is a legiti-
mate complaint," he said.
"Wilson (Waigwa, indoor mile
champion) is 25 and he's a
senior. I don't pay much at-
tention about the ages of the
rest of them."

Washington State coach
John Chaplin remarked, "I
didn't know that there was
any age rules in the NCAA
anyway, so what's the big
deal?"
So, while the track world
muddles through the complex
issue of Kenyan recruitment,
Michigan's Warhurst summar-
ized his views.
"What it all boils down to is
that any coach can recruit any
type of athlete he wants to, ac-
cording to his own personal con-
victions. But just because it'sI
all legal doesn't mean it's all
right."
