Bucks edge Blue, 66-c
BY SCOTT M. LEWIS
Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS - Carter Scott's bank
shot with 45 seconds remaining and a
most untimely traveling violation
spoiled the Wolverines' grittiest road
performance of the season, as 13th-
ranked Ohio State escaped with a 66-63
victory at St. John's Arena last night.
Michigan had control of the' ball for
nearly all of the final 45 seconds and
orked deliberately for a shot. Coach
'Johnny Orr called time out at :13 and
when play was resumed, the
Wolverines' Mark Lozier in-bounded
the ball at mid-court.
THE BALL came back to Lozier, who
was whistled for traveling with :06 left.
Scott connected on both ends of a one-
and-one situation with two ticks
remaining on the clock to ice the
Concerning the travelling call, Orr
Rid, "I didn't see it. We freed (Mike)
cGee and had him wide open. Herby
'(Williams) didn't even know where
McGee was. But they called traveling
so he must have traveled. If it wasn't
traveling, he (the official) should be
kicked out of the league."
Ohio State, now 7-4 in the Big Ten and-
tied for second place, snapped a three-
game conference losing streak. The
Bucks also gained retribution against
the Wolverines for a defeat they suf-
fered in Ann Arbor on January 19.
Michigan, whose conference record
slipped to 5-6 (12-8 overall) had its two-
game winning streak halted. The
Wolverines are now 1-5 in Big Ten road
THE CONTEST evoked strong
remembrances of a game at Toledo in
which Michigan was faced with similar
circumstances. With about 10 seconds -
remaining, Lozier committed a crucial
turnover and Toledo gained a 67-64
As in the Toledo game, last night's af-
fair had all the ingredients of 'a
Michigan comeback win only to be
stymied by the home club. At 10:33 Ohio
State held a 55-48 lead and was
displaying the talents which propelled
it to a 5-0 record at one juncture in the
Big Ten season.
These talents included defensive tac-
tics which would have made Woody

of Buckeye turnovers proceeded to out-

7:50 put Michigan on top, 56-55.
