MADISON-There's no need to bring
out the respirator just yet-the cardiac
kids are still playing with racing hear-
ts, but for the time being, their pulses
Indeed, as if nobody within sight or
earshot of Big Ten basketball could
believe that Michigan could play its
*urth straight overtime game of the
conference season. The Wolverines did
exactly that last night, squeaking by
Wisconsin, 73-69, before 7,850 stunned
fans in Wisconsin Field House.
AFTER THEY HAD stormed back
from an eight-point deficit early in the
second half and tied the game at 63-63 to
end regulation play, the cages sprinted
to a four-point advantage in the extra
period, then held on to win with some
clutch free throw shooting by Mark
Lozier and Ike Person.
"I sure feel better when I win them,"
said Wolverine coach Johnny Orr after
the game. "These kids battle all the
The win boosts Michigan's record to
4-5 in the Big Ten and 11-7 overall. The
Wolverines now sport a 2-3 record in
overtime contests, as they broke a two-
game string of losses in post-regulation
THIS GAME WAS unique in that the
Wolverines grabbed the lead in over-
time. Mike McGee and Thad Garner hit
short shots to put Michigan ahead, 67-
63, then Wes Matthews popped a short
shot through the twines to make it 67-65.
'As Keith Smith brought the ball
downcourt, he was fouled by Badger
guard Greg Dandridge. Smith made the
pair of free throws, but the tables ap-
peared to turn moments later, when
forward Claude Gregory slammed a
dunk through the hoop, and the Badgers
intercepted the inbounds pass. Web
Matthews drove in for an uncontested
himself from hero into goat. The senior
co-captain slapped Mathews on the
hand as he was driving in for a layup.
But even Matthews, a 90 per cent foul
shooter and probable All-Big Ten selec-
tion, couldn't compose himself under
pressure. His free throw caromed off
the outer rim, where Paul Heuerman
had firmly -planted himself for the

Smith kept matters in suspense by
missing the front end of a one-and-one
with 27 seconds lelft, leaving the
Badgers with at least a chance to tie the
game and force a second overtime.
THEY RAN THE clock down to the
two-second mark before Gregory's
jumper rolled off the rim. Person
scooped the ball in a crowd, then was
fouled by Keith Mitchell, The freshman
forward then hit both of his free throws,
thus icing the victory.
