THAYER'S OT GOAL BEATS TECH:

Icers

win

By RICK MADDOCK ,
Michigan forward Bill Thay-
er slapped in the winning goal
at 1:28 of the overtime period
to cap off a stunning comeback
victory for the Wolverine icers
over Michigan Tech, 9-8, last
night at Yost Ice Arena.
"That's only his seventh goal
of the season. What a beauty,"
Michiganhockey coach Dan
Farrell said.
"Thyer - the man that
makes Michigan go. He turn-
ed that game around," said
assistant coach Doug Hinton.

The Huskies started off quick-
ly, and early in the second peri-
od held a 5-1 edge.
"That first period, Tech wasr
knocking the daylights out of*
us, but that's been, Tech's
game,". Farrell said.
"John's (Tech coach MacIn-
nes) teams have alwpys been
hard-hitting," Farrell explain-
ed. "We've gone more to quick-
ness and finesse," Farrell add-
ed.
Center Dave Debol teamed
with Thayer to lead the Michi-
gan 7attack. Debol, voted first
star of the game, reached the

[9-8
hat trick honors at 14:39 in
the third period.
All three of Debol's goals were
set up by Thayer, who was the
second star of the game. The
final play came in grand finale
fashion as Thayer passed the
puck behind his back to Debol,
who delicately positioned his
stick for the final kill.'The goal
tied the game at 8-8 and sent
the two teams into overtime.
"We do that passing drill quite
often in practice," Farrell said.
Debol had three assists to go
along with his hat trick, and
now leads the Wolverines with

thriller

Blue tankers rip Purdue;
records fall in 87-44 win

42 points. "Re's the most ex-
citing kid in- the nation," Far-
rell said. The Wolverine coach
also mentioned Debol's profes-
sional potential.
Twice Michigan's comeback
momentum was stifled. The
first incident came at 9:34 in
the second period - after two
straight Michigan goals-when
Tech's Gord Salt pushed a
rebound past goalie Rick Pal-
mer to make it 6-3, Tech.
The second damper was put
on Michigan when both teams
were playing one man short.
Doug Todd was called for trip-
ping, which gave Tech renewed
spark. The Huskies, however,
could not capitalize. ,
Obviously one can tell by the
score that the game was not
a defensive gem. Twice, Tech
goalie Bruce Horsch failed Ito
cover up after a save, which
resulted in Michigan goals.
The first one occurred on the
Wolverines first -goal. Greg Na-
tale took a slap shot that Hor-
sch knocked down, but failed
to fall on. Kris Manery quick-
ly sent the puck past the Tech
goalie. .
The second time this hap-
pened after Dave Brennan
shot. Horsch knocked the puck
down, only to see Todd poke

it into the net. The Tech de-
fense offered little support for
Horsch, as Michigan pres-
sured with close shots from
the second period on.
The Wolverine defense had
its problems, -too. "We've had
trouble defensively in almost
every series we've been in. We
have just been fortunate enough
to blow enough goals past the
opposition," Farrell said.
"We're getting into the. sec-
ond half of the season, so we've
got to get better defensively,"
Farrell added.
The win raises Michigan's
WCHA record to 12-5, while
Tech drops to 6-10-1.
"Tech's no ninth place team,"
Farrell said. "We've played four
or five teams above them in the
standings, and they've (Tech)
given us more trouble," he add-
ed.
Last night's crowd of 6,385,
was lively, and contained a loud
Tech contingent. The northland-
ers did not have quite enough
people to out yell the Michigan
partisans, however. Several tim-
es the Tech fans started a "Let's
go Tech" cheer, only to hear it
quickly change to "Let's go
Blue."

By JAMIE TURNER.
The Michigan women's swim team put
on an awesome display last night as they
drowned Purdue, 8-44. Coach Stu Isaac was
"happy" with the win, and is already look-
ing forward to the showdown at Michigan
State next Saturday night.
The women tankers set two new school
recordssand qualified seven events for the
AIAW swim finals in March.
"THE PERFORMANCE tonight was excel-
lent, considering that we just came off Christ-
mas break," Isaac said. "Besides the Nation-
al times, I believe that one of the highlights
of the meet was Nancy Moss' fine time in
the 50 yd. breast. She was sick all last year,
and she's a real plus to the team now that
she's healthy."
Katy McCully started off the water fire-
works with first place in the 200 yd. indi-
vidual' medley, qualifying for the Nationals
with a 2:13.57 time. She doubled with a first
in the 200 yd. butterfly. Only a sophdmore,
McCully put in her most memorable per-
formance in the last event, the 400 yd. free-
style medley.

Needing a :52.69 last leg to qualify for the
AIAW, McCully came through with a :52.21
to qualify with her teammates Kim Groleau,
Liz Lease and Sue Andrews.
LEASE BECAME the second Wolverine to
double up victories with wins in the 50 and
100 yd. freestyle. Lori Hughes and Karen
Bockstahler also doubled with Bockstahler
winning the 50 and 200 yd.5breaststrokes and
Lease triumphant in the 500 and 1000 free-
styles.
""Lori is our Wonder Woman with those
two performances," said Isaac, "It is diffi-
cult to explain how hard it is to win those
two events in one night."
DIVING COACH Dick Kimball was just as
pleased with the work of his divers. Chris
Seufert, Sue Honnen and Liz Higgins all
achieved the necessary point totals to get into
the nationals.
"This isa really good group. Three of our
girls have qualified now, and we expect more
of the same."
Tonight's match with Illinois has been
changed from 4:00 to noon.

ORR WARY OF SPARTANS
Cagers battle unpredictable MSU

By JEFF FRANK
and CINDY GATZIOLIS
Tougher compulsory exercises caused gym-
nasts some distress last night in the Big Ten
Invitational meet held at Cris-ler Arena.
Scores tumbled' as the exercises adopted from
the past Olympic competition were performed
by the gymnasts for the first time competitively.
. Compulsory routines are changed in college
gymnastics every four years, and according "to
Coach Newt Loken, "It's a tough program to
master in a few months."
Michigan tumblers experienced problems, but
still managed to turn in some good perform-
ances.
Bob Creek took top honors in the high bar
competition with a score of 9.0. Creek com-
mented on his new exercises saying, "they're
very hard routines, but they allow a lot of
room for excellence."
SOPHOMORE JOHN Corritore gave a spirited
performance on the parallel bars also scoring
9.0.
Corr' was not completely satisfied with
his perf. ance since he scored 9.4 at the re--
cent Midwest Championship.
The compulsories are more enjoyable to Cor-
ritore because "at the same level of difficulty

gymnasts can prove who's better at the event."
Michigan tumblers Doug Zhaour and Brian
Carey were other bright spots taking second
place in thefloor exercise and pommel horse
respec ively.
INJURIES PLAGUED the Wolverines as Kurt
Go'der and Chuck Ventura sat out the meet.
Nigel .-Rothwell and Chuck Stillerman partici-
pated despite their ailments.
These -injuries allowed Indiana to place eight
tumblers in the top five places of the six events.
Indiana coach Jim grown admitted that Mich-
igan's injuries hurt the Wolverines, but he was
pleased with his team's performance.
He agreed that the compulsories lowered
scores and said, "These routines are too hard
for college gymnasts."
Pete Murae, an Indiana junior, paced the
Hoosiers with a first place in floor exercise
and a second place in vaulting. Tim. Connelly
led the field in the pommel horse event for
Indiana.
The compulsories will be averaged in with the
optionals which will take place at 10:00 a.m. at
Crisler. The finals will be at 2:30 p.m. A
tumbling exhibition by women gymnasts Ginger
Robey and Beth Carlson plus a trampoline per-
formance will also be included.

Above the door to the Michi-
gan basketball players dressing
room in Crisler Arena hangs
a sign. In bold blue letters
ofi" a gallant gold background
stand the jwords DON'T UN-
DERESTIMATE STATE.
Tonight's 8:05 tip in East
Lansing marks the 102nd clash
between the Wolverines (9-1
overall, 2-0 conference) and
arch-rival Michigan State (4-7,
It would not be surprising
if Spartan rookie coach Jud
Heathcote had a similar sign
in his office that read DON'T
UNDERSTAND STATE.
The Spartans are a confus-
ing team. In Big Ten play they
opened the season by wasting
Wisconsin, 84-61. The same Bad-
gers fell to the Wolverines by
three points.
In the Spartans' second Big

Ten game, Northwestern re-
bounded from a 102-65 pummel-
ing in Ann Arbor to sting State,
70-68.
"I think we're better than
our record indicates," said
Heathcote. "All the games we
lost we were ahead at one
point by nine to 15 points, ex-
cept North Carolina."
Fifth-ranked North Carolina
whipped State 81-58. Otherwise
the Spartans' six losses are by
a total of only 24 points.
The former Montana mentor
blames these late-going break-
downs on a lack of intensity
on the part of his players, and
inexperience.
Michigan State boasts some
players that are extremely tal-
ented, and others who are not.
According to Michigan coach
Johnny Orr, two of those play-
ers, 6-2 guard Bob Chapman
and 6-7 forward Greg Kelser,

"could start on any team in
the league."
They are the only two play-
ers averaging in double figures
for MSU. Kelser pops for 22
points per game while Chap-
man hits for just over 19.
Kelser played center last sea-
son and was the second best
Big Ten rebounder. He current-
ly averages 9.8 boards a game.
For the Wolverines, whose
starting lineup remains the
same as it was against Wis-
consin, the job of covering Kel-
ser falls to John Robinson.
Kelser's coach described him
as having "great speed and
quickness around the basket
and a knack of getting the
ball to the basket despite de-
fensive pressure."
Chapman, a punishing guard
built like South Quad, is a sharp-
shooter with terrific one-on-one
moves. Michigan's 'broken nose'

guard Steve Grote will tackle
the assignment of defensing
Chapman.
Grote, who has been known
to deal out some punishment
also, needs to deal out just one
more assist to become the Wol-
verines all-time leader in that
department. He and Wayman
Britt are presently tied with
301.
The other first stringers
"start because there's really
nobody else," Heathcote said.
Five other players will see
plenty of action. At the forwards
are Edgar Wilson (9.4 ppg) and
Ronald Charles (2.3). At the oth-
er guard slot freshman Terry
Donnelly (8.0) starts with relief
from Nate Phillips (1.0).
State rotates Tanya Webb and
Jim Coutre in the pivot. Neith-
er have overly pleased Heath-
cote. "They haven't been very
productive offensively or on the
boards."
MSU plans to slap zone de-
fenses on Michigan. "We've
looked at it and we come up
short on every matchup,"
Heathcote explained. "We
have a saying here that we
shift defenses just enough to
confuse ourselves rather than
our opponents."
Orr does not underestimatel

I

the Spartans. "I think they're
a team that can rise to the
occasion." His problem is get-
ting the players to properly es-
timate MSU.
"This is our first and maybe
only sellout," noted Heathcote,
because of this he warned; "Our
kids will be ready."

MEET WILDCATS, AIA
Wrestlers face double

trouble

One'good turn
deserves another.
From one beer lover to another.

By GREG ZOTT
Michigan's wrestling team
faces two stern tests tonight
when they resume the 1976-77
Big Ten schedule.
The undefeated Wolverines
meet Northwestern at 7 p.m. in
the Track/Tennis Building and
then take on Athletes in Action,
a traveling squad of former
Olympic and collegiate wrest-.
lers.
"NORTHWESTERN is, much
improved this year," said Mich-
igan coach Bill Johannesen.
"They lost by one quarter of a
point to Minnesota in a quad-
rangular meet earlier this sea-
son and Minnesota ranks ninth
in the nation."
"It should be very interesting.
The meet might come down to
the last match," Johannesen
added.
Northwestern has outstanding
individuals in 118-pound Dave
Triveling and 142-pound Pete
Dombrowski.
"TRIVELING and Dombrowski
finished third in the Midlands'
tournament, which I think is
the toughest tournament in the
country," said Johannesen.
Michigan will counter at those
weights with Todd Schneider

and Karl Briggs.
"Schneider's been injured but
he looked better this week,"
said Johannesen. "He'll have to
hustle to beat Triveling. If
Briggs wrestles well, he can
beat anybody."
THE 190-MATCH also figures
to be rugged with Wildcat Al
Marzano against Michigan's
Harold King.
"King was pinned by Marza-
no last year in the Big Ten and
this year in the Midlands," said
Johannesen. "We're hoping he
can avenge those losses Satur-
day."
Freshmen Rich Strader and
Bob Taylor will be in their first
varsity matches Saturday. Stra-
der replaces injured Amos
Goodlow at 126-pounds, while
Taylor will wrestle heavyweight
against Northwestern.
ATHLETES IN ACTION also
pose some exciting match-ups,
the best at 177-pounds, where
Michigan's Mark Johnson chal-
lenges Olympic gold medalist
John Peterson.
"It should be great," Johan-
nesen said. "Peterson is the

pairings include Reid Lamphere "IT'S A SMALLER place; and
against Michigan's Mark Churel- I think the change will help us
la at 150, and Doug Klenovich mentally for the meet," said
against Harold King at 190. Johannesen.

"CHURELLA can't be touch- and Brad Holman round out the
ed at that weight," said Johan- Michigan line-up. Mitch Marsi-
nesen. "But Klenovich and King cano will wrestle at heavyweight

are Greco-Roman type wrest- letes in Action, but everyone

Johannesen feels that the
switch from Crisler arena to the C "We worked hard all week,"
Track/Tennis Building will add said Johannesen. "We're ready
to the atmosphere of tonight's to notch up two more victor-
meet. ies."

According to their schedule,
the Michigan track team is sup-
posed to kick off the indoor
portion of their 1977 campaign
today, travelling to' Ypsilanti to
compete in the Eastern Michi-
gan Invitational.
But listening to coach Jack
Harvey talk about it, one be-
gins to wonder.
"I can't really get too ex-
cited about this meet," ad-
mitted Harvey. "The staff has
been' low-keying it all along."
If that kind of statement
seems a trifle peculiar coming
from a varsity coach, rest as-
sured. It is.
But, then again, Harvey has
his reasons.
"After all, we've only been
practicing as a team since Mon;
day," he said. "We like to use
the first meet to hone our skills
and regain our competitive
edge."
"We're looking for a gradu-
al build-up, pointing toward
the Central Collegiate Cham-

ture only one Big Ten opponent.
- Michigan State. The majority
of the field will be filled by
Mid-American schools, including
Eastern, Western and Central
Michigan, Bowling Green, Kent
State and Toledo.
The Wolverines will not be
running at full strength, with
coach Harvey electing to hold
back many of his top perform-
ers.
"We'll be running all of our
freshmen to get an idea of their
capabilities;" said Harvey.
"Some of our distance men may
also be resting.."
Harvey also indicated that
some of his personnel may not
yet be in the best of shape.
"They were supposed to stay
in condition over break," he
said. "But with the weather we
had, it was tough."
Sprinters Doug Hennigar
and Dwight Jones, -along with
quarter-miler Jeff McLeod and
hurdler Arnett Chisholm will
compete, making Michigan
tough in those events.
Harvey expects the hosting
