STUDWELL FIRMS UP DEFENSE

Special To The Daily
Fabulous fast break
FLINT - The next time fans see the Michigan basketball
team it will be the real thing.
In the only game all season it cannot lose, Michigan method-
ically destroyed itself at Southwestern High School before 1150
The Wolverines tallied the highest point total they'll
amass all season: 217. The fastbreak worked.
Coach Johnny Orr, pleased with his teams' (team's?) per-j
formance(s?), listed over half the squad when asked who played
Sponsored by Flint's Marketing and Distribution Career
Center, the game was played "to get away from Ann Arbor, to
do something a little different," said assistant coach Bill Frieder.
"Tonight was nothing but run and gun and having fun,"
said senior co-captain Steve Grote, who scored 23 points.
Tom Staton, prime candidate for graduated forward Way-
man Britt's spot, was cited by Orr for his defensive prowess.
Suffering from a hip pointer, Staton thought he could have
played better, but -"we had fun and that's the main thing," he
said. Staton had nine points.
Guard David Baxter, playing in front of his family,
thought "there was plenty of offense tonight, not -too much
defense. We gave the fans a little treat." Baxter swished
the cords for 18 points.
The Blue team, starting with Phil Hubbard in the pivot,
Grote and Rickey Green at the guards and John Robinson and
Staton at the forwards scored 56 first half points.I
In the second half Baxter, Alan Hardy and Joel Thompson
turned in their white jerseys for blue ones and helped the Blues
score 71 points in the second half.
Hubbard finished the game with scoring honors, 27 points.
Green, with two early game fastbreak dunks to his credit, -
and Robinson each scored 26.Ir
Thompson scored all 21 of his points while playing for the
White in the first half. He left the game early in the second
half with a banged up leg.
