back with five straight goals and never
lost their lead.
Michigan coach Dan Farrell was
satisfied with his team's comeback. "I
was very impressed with the way we
came back after being down 2-0," said
Farrell. "In a real tight hockey game
like tonight, it's not so easy to come
back when you fall behind by two goals.
I was concerned because their goalie

had been playing well lately and
they've been a scoring team lately."
But Farrell's worries were for naught
as his icers took advantage of Colorado
penalties, scoring three power play
goals and came out of the first stanza
with a 4-2 lead.
AT 7:51, BRAD Tippett knocked in a
rebound of an off target shot, pulling
Michigan within one.,Then ; Michigan's
prolific power play took over. Tippett
skated down left wing, passing the puck
to himself off of the boards and whistled
the puck to Eaves who slipped it past
the CC goalie, knotting the score at 2-2.
And Baseotto scored the final two goals
of the period at 14:15 and 17:01 with
Michigan capitalizing on CC penalties.
"We skated and moved the puck
around well. The power play looked
much better tonight," said Farrell.
"The third and fourth goals really
changed the complexion of the game."
Michigan came out right where it left
off in the end of the first period, scoring
at 1:26 of the second period with Tim
Manning getting credit for the goal.

good condition and we'vq been playing
a physical game."
The victory was sweetest for one par-

Blue silences some skeptics...
...but Hoosier jinx extended
T HIS WAS SUPPOSED to be one year that the Michigan Wolverines
didn't stand a chance of snapping an ever-mounting losing streak in
Bloomington. The jinx at the Hoosiers' home arena, which dated bacak over
eleven games to 1966, seemed safe,
After all, Indiana was just about everyone's Number One team at the
beginning of the year. Michigan was thought to be fighting for eighth in the
Big Ten.
But, as the game showed Thursday night, things have changed and the
Big Ten doesn't have coach Johnny Orr and the rest of the Wolverines to kick
around any more.
Michigan gave the Hoosiers all they could possibly handle before they
bowed out in a controversial overtime ending.
The cynics and disbelievers of Michigan basketball will say, "Oh, so
what? Indiana was playing without their best player, Mike Woodson, and
their ballhandling playmaker Randy Wittman. Matching up with Indiana
now is no big deal."
With Woodson and Wittman, Indiana was Number One as it rolled over
opponents until their fifth game with fourth-ranked Kentucky. Indiana led
the hosting Wildcats most of the game as Wittman played injured, but Ken-
tucky came back and the Hoosiers lost the game and their top ranking.
It was Wittman's last game to date. Woodson fell to a back injury the
next game as the Hoosiers whipped Toledo.
Even without Woodson'and Wittman, Indiana has played well. It lost a
close game at home to North Carolina before beating Tennessee, first in the
SEC, and Brown to win the Cabrillo Classic in San Diego.
Indiana opened the Big Ten season with a one-point loss at Ohio State,
currently ranked third, and a two-point loss at Wisconsin. In both of those
game Indiana was also without the services of freshman starting forward
Steve Bouchie.
Bouchie played against Michigan Thursday night and scored 20 points to
lead the Hoosiers. Had Bouchie played in the road games against Wisconsin
and Ohio State, Indiana might have also beaten them.
So Indiana barely lost without Bouchie on the road and barely beat
Michigan with Bouchie at home. That adds even more respectability to the
way the Wolverines played before a full house at Assembly Hall Thursday
Michigan played yet anothr one of its all-out hustling games which
typifies this season's team. The Wolverines did everything well except shoot
with accuracy (a poor 36.8 per cent) and avoid traveling calls. Of Michigan's
25 turnovers, almost half were due to moving the feet before bouncing the
Michigan outrebounded the Hoosiers by six but it was the Hoosiers'
decisive advantage in field goal percentage which won the game. Indiana
shot over 50 per cent in the contest. It wasn't that the Wolverines were taking
a lot of poor shots. The ball just didn't seem to be falling all evening.
The Wolverines played a tough man-to-man defense almost every time
while on the guard. It appears that Johnny Orr has abandoned, at least for
the time being, the two-three zone. This defensive deployment was used with
only moderate success at the beginning of the year.
Michigan again showed a lot of character for a young team on the road
when it came back from an eleven-point deficit midway through the second
half to tie the game. Once before, against the Marquette Warriors, the
Wolverines came from 13 points down on the road, but in that game the crew
from Ann Arbor came out with a victory.
But the outcome appeared almost inevitable Thursday night. The jinx
was going to hold true for yet another year.
The loss dropped Michigan to 2-1 and into a four-way tie for second place
in the wild and woolly Big Ten basketball race.
The conference season, though only three weeks old, has been very sur-
prising and unpredictable. Foremost under the surprising' category is
Michigan State's tenth place standing. Under the unpredicatable are Top
Twenty teams Indiana, Iowa and Illinois, in the bottom half of the league,
while unranked teams Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin hold upper-
half positions.4
But it's really too early to tell. After all, last year Ohio State was four
games in front of everyone else before it slapped on the iron collar and
choked away the title to the Spartans.

well with the rest of the Boilermakers.
Johnny Orr, David's coach, said,
"Joe Barry Carroll can be one of the
most dominating big men in the coun-
try. He is an outstanding player, and
he'll have quite a height advantage
when he plays us."
But Orr adds, "Purdue is not just a
one-man team, either. (Arnette)
Hallman is a fine forward, as is
(Drake) Morris. And Brian Walker is a
proven guard, so they can beat you a
number of ways."
Hallman and Morris are 6-7 and 6-5,
respectively. That matches up exactly
with the Wolverines' forwards Thad
Garner and Mike McGee.
Walker, at 6-2, was a steady ball-
handling guard for the Boilermakers
last season. His backcourt mate, the 6-5
Keith Edmondson, is the only Purdue
starter who was not a regular for the
team last year.
Edmondson has the tough job of
replacing Jerry Sichting.
With Sichting, a second team All-Big
Ten performer last year as a senior,
Purdue finished second in the NIT
Tournament behind Indiana.
The Boilermakers have been pushing
a lot of smaller teams around this year
as they have chalked up a 9-2 record (2-
1 in the Big Ten), and a ranking of 10th
in the nation's college basketball polls.
Purdue's only losses so far this year
under second-year head coach Lee
Rose are to Kentucky, ranked fourth,
and Ohio State ranked third BRnth

games were on the road for Purdue.
Throughout their schedule Carroll
has been his usual dominating self. The
big man inside is leading Purdue in
both scoring and rebounding this year
and is among the leaders in the Big Ten
in both of those categories.
Entering Thursday's game, a victory
over Illinois, Carroll was averaging 23.0
points per contest, second in the Big
Ten behind McGee's 24.0. Edmonson
was tied for 18th in the conference
