VINCENT'S FREE THROW WINS IT FOR MSU IN OT
Second-half blues: 59-58
By STAN BRADBURY
y Vincent's free throw with :03
nds remaining in overtime gave
e Michigan State Spartans a 59-58 up-
et victory over the Michigan
olverines at Crisler Arena last night
efore a crowd of 13,318.
The Wolverines blew an 11-point half-
me lead as they played the entire
ame without enthusiasm according to
oach Johnny Orr. "That's the first
ime that my team wasn't fired up to
1 Michigan State," said a dishear-
.Wd Orr after the game,
"For us to win we've got to play with
great enthusiasm and we just didn't do
that today," Orr said. The loss com-
pletes a riches to rags cycle as the.
Wolverines upset Ohio State, second-
ranked at the time, on Saturday.
Orr said after the game that the men-
tal letdown after playing the Buckeyes
was a contributing factor to the poor en-
thusiasm the team displayed.
The win for the Spartans extends
t.r winning streak to three games af-
ter they had lost their first four Big Ten
contests. Michigan's record fell to an
equal 3-4 record, but it was the first
home loss of the season.
The overtime began with the score at
54 apiece. A layup by senior co-captain
Mark Lozier put Michigan out on top by
two, but Vincent came back with a
bucket to even the score at 56. Thad
Garner of the Wolverines hit a layup
gain the Spartans retaliated with a
In classic Lozier style, Vincent was
sent to the line with 2:07 left in the over-
time for a one-and-one, but he missed
the first and Garner rebounded to give
Michigan the ball.
State then stalled the clock down to
:09 seconds and decided to go to work as
Kevin Smith got the ball into Vincent
and he began to drive on Paul Heuer-
man from the corner of the free throw
line. As Vincent crossed the middle of
the charity strip he turned and shot
with three seconds left. The shot missed
its mark but the officials called a con-
troversial blocking foul on the 6-8
Vincent, a .639 free throw shooter,
was sent to the line again to earn
redemption for his earlier mistake, but
not before Michigan called a pair of
timeouts to let him think about it.
Vincent missed the first of his two
shots. Michigan called two more
timeouts to let him think about it some
more. This time his aim was true, even
with all the Michigan fans yelling and
waving their arms in the seats behind
the glass backboard.
Jud Heathcote said jokingly after the
game that he told Vincent during the
timeouts, in an effort to cool the
senior's nerves, that, "if he missed it,
he's off scholarship."
The Spartans were led throughout the
game by the play of Charles who hit a
Crisler Arena record 12-12 field goals
for 24 points. Vincent added 15 in the
The Wolverines were led through the
contest by the scoring of Mike McGee.
The Omaha junior hit for a Big Ten
season high of 30 points as he was the
only Wolverine in double figures. Lozier
came off the bench to add eight points
along with Garner's eight.
Michigan travels to tenth-place Nor-
thwestern for Saturday's game against
the Wildcats in Evanston.

The Wolverines opted to stall the time
and go for the last shot, but with :43
seconds on the clock, State's Kevin
Smith knocked the ball away from
Michigan's Keith Smith and Keith step-
ped on the fringes of the boundaries
retrieving the ball.

1957. Ask a Michigan swimmer to describe that
*'. Obviously, he can't. Odds are, he wasn't even
Well, there's one thing that the swimmer can tell
you about that year-it was the last time the Indiana
swm team lost a meet at home in Royer Pool.
The Michigan men's swimming team will attempt
to end a virtual lifetime of college swimmers'
frustrations when they take on the Hoosier tankers
tonight down in Bloomington.
What chance does Michigan have of ending the
streak that is now into its fourth decade and has
r hed an even 100 meets? Well, pretty good, ac-
'WE'RE DOWN a little bit this year," stated In-
diana's legendary coach, Dr. James (Doc) Coun-
silman, whose definition of "down" probably means
his team will only be great.
You see, since Councilman took over the reigns in
1958, he has become the most successful coach on the
major college level ever-in any sport.
When beginning to list Counsilman's accomplish-
ments, you probably want to start with the six
n ron Ida
straight National championships his teams won bet-
ween 1968 and 1973. How many coaches go a whole
lifetime without coaching one national champion?
COUNSILMAN'S SUCCESS-just like any
coach's-is due at least in part to the outstanding
talent he has recruiitd and developed. The list of In-
diana All-Americans over the last 20 years stretches
from here to Bloomington, while the list of national
champion swimmers is even longer. Gary Hall, Mark
Spiz, Jim Montgomery, Charlie Hickox... . These
are just a few of the All-Americans the Doctor has
Of course the fact that his teams have won 19
straight Big Ten championships dating back to 1961
just might be worth mentioning, also. 1960, you
remember that year don't you? Counsilman had a
horrendous team that year-they finished second in
the Big Ten and third in the country.
So when Doc says his team may be a little down this
year, the listener tends to be a little wary.
BUT THE coach may be doing more-than just
blowing smoke. This does appear to be one of his
weaker teams. Early in the season, they got blown
out of a dual meet at Iowa (Indiana's sixth dual meet
loss in the last 23 years). "It was a rout, they beat us
by 40 points or something like that," said the coach.
Since that Iowa meet on Nov. 16, however, Indiana
has progressed in customary fashion, demolishing
everyone else on their schedule.
"We've sort of been pointing towards Michigan,"
stated the coach. "They always swim tough against
us. The winner of this meet should be favored in the
In addition to his success at Indiana, Counsilman
also coached the American Olympic teams of 1964
and 1976. That 1976 team won 12 out of a possible 13
gold medals and set 18 world records.
Asked about the American swimmers' prospects at
this year's games in Moscow, Doc replied, "The
women will be stronger than ever, but the men will
never repeat what they did in 1976. That's if the
Olympics even are held.
For at least a couple of hours tonight, Doc Coun-
silman will have to forget about the Olympic
movement. The Michigan swimmers will see to that.
Although Michigan's chances may look bleak, at
least they have one glimmer of hope-Indiana's
having a "down" year.

ing Purdue and Illinois to the mat
this weekend. Their 6-1-1 record will
first be put to the test on Friday night
gainst Purdue at 7:30 in Crisler Arena,
nd then again on Saturday night
gainst Illinois, same place, same time.
ALTHOUGH THE Michigan
restlers have almost their entire
lineup back from injuries, assistant
coach Joe Wells is still cautious. "Pur-
due beat Illinois earlier in the year by a
re of 23-22," remarked Wells. "That
as a surprise. They did a little better
than we expected."
The two meets this weekend are just
as unpredictable. Illinois is known
to be a tough team, but they've had
numerous injury problems of late, not
to mention the need for a strong
heavyweight. Furthermore, Purdue
beat Illinois when that school was still
.dd to that the-fact that Michigan's
dgame winning streak is on the line
and the action is set for a rough
weekend of wrestling.
