MICHIGAN DID not play well against Illinois last night, but
could not escape without a loss this time. The Wolverines
played poorly against Ohio State in Ann Arbor two weeks ago,
but still came out ahead, 84-81. Michigan had a terrible first
half against Michigan State, but snapped out of its lethargy in
time to squeak out a 66-63 win.(
Last night Michigan was the more talented team in the con-I
test, but the Wolverines' play was uninspired.
"Playing is nothing; winning is hard. Sometimes you learn
something when you lose," said Michigan coach Johnny Orr.
"Illinois played with great intensity, and sometimes those things
just bounce your way."
Illinois coach Lou Henson said, "I think the win is a tribute
to the desire of our players."
A key factor in the contest was control of the tempo.
Michigan first pulled out ahead, 14-12, with 10:45 remaining
in the first half. From that point on, the Wolverines were
never behind until Rich Adams tipped in a missed free throw
to put Illinois ahead 70-68 with 3:20 left.
But the Wolverines largest lead at any time was only seven
points, and they never really had the contest under control.
Michigan could not use the fast break to advantage.
Illini set pace
"We didn't fast break at all except for one, maybe two
times," said Rickey Green, who fouled out for the first time this
season with 4:27 remaining on the clock.
"We really didn't establish a running game," said John
Robinson. "We never got the momentum going enough to blow
Instead it was the Illini who determined the pace. Coach
Lou Henson's squad employed a 2-3 zone throughout most
of the game, forcing Michigan to put the ball up from out-
side. And the Wolverines just could not connect, hitting only
39.7 per cent of their shots from the field, by far their lowest
average of the season.
"We didn't shoot that well," said Michigan captain Wayman
Britt. "The zone kept it close. We weren't hitting outside except
for Rickey. That's what kept them in the game."
Time ran out
Michigan almost pulled off the win in a wild scramble under
the basket as time ran out, but the officials ruled that Robinson's
last tip-in came after the buzzer had sounded.
Orr accepted the decision, although some Michigan players
expressed doubt. "That's the way it goes, I guess," said Orr.
"Another second and we would have won it. You can't change
Another second on the clock would have made the difference.
But if Michigan had either been able to establish its running
game, or had shot well enough from the floor to make the Illini
zone ineffective, the contest would not have gone down to the

didn't play a good game."

Eastern Michigan 51-50, last
night at Crisler Arena. It was
the Blue's third straight one
point victory and second over
Eastern in the past three days.
Both teams got off to a :low
start making a total of three
baskets in the first four and a
half minutes. On the long out-
; side shooting of Lydia Sims and
Carol Klomparen, Michigan rac-
ed out to their biggest lead of
the night, 18-13.

turnovers by Michigan in the

shooting by Eastern forward

baMichigan scored the first three
baskets of the second half and
appeared to be ready to take
command of the.game.
"I kept waiting for us to
break open the game, but it just
never happened," said coach
Melinda Fertig with 10 points,
eight in the second half.
The win boosts Michigan's
record to 5-1, counting the
Wolverines' three wins in the
Can-Am tournament which
they won this past weekend.
Michigan edged Central Michi-
gan 55-54 in the finals.
Central led 26-19 at the half,
but Michigan battled back in the
second half to finally take the
lead for good in the final four
minutes. Michigan was outre-,
bounded 44-27, but once again
played strong defense to insure
the win. Sims pumped in 15:
points and Fertig and Terry Con-
lin each tallied 14 points. East-
en defeated Wayne State to
capture third place.
The cagers have a long lavoff
and Borders said they will wrk
on improving their offense.
