Michigan avoided a Valentine's Day
heartbreak by clinging to a two-point
lead in the final minute, and defeated
Illinois, 78-76, last night before a sparse
turnout of 9,738 at Crisler Arena.
The most important aspect of the
victory was its effect on the Wolverines'
place in the Big Ten standings. After
an evening which saw two major upsets
(Northwestern defeating Purdue and
Minnesota defeating Ohio State),
Michigan now stands 7-6 in the
conference, only one game behind four
teams which are tied for the Big Ten
"It just positively amazes me, how
we can come down to the wire like this
in almost every game," said Wolverine
coach Johnny Orr. "This team simply
The Wolverines had secured the
game's final points with 1:27 left on two
free throws-by Mike McGee, before a
circus of ball exchanges commenced.
During the dry spell, Michigan had no
less than three chances to extend its
lead to four points, while the Illini blew
four attempts to tie the contest.
Forward Eddie Johnson missed a
long jump shot following a pair of free
throws, and Johnny Johnson emerged
from a crowd with the rebound. Three
seconds and two time outs later, Mark
Bodnar was called for an offensive foul
when he crashed into Illini guard Perry
Range following the inbound pass.
In a somewhat surprising maneuver,
Illinois coach Lou Henson encouraged
his team to shoot immediately rather
than play for one shot in the final
seconds. Johnson once again took the
shot, but the ball sailed high off the
glass and into the flailing arms of Thad
Then it was Garner's turn to prolong
the tension which has recurred in
almost every game the Wolverines
have played. While dribbling carefully
among four Illini, he was fouled by
Gray. The 6-7 sophompre missed the
front end of a one-and-one situation,
and further compounded his
frustrations when he was whistled for
climbing up Mark Smith's back.
Smith, on the other hand, proved to be
no cool cookie himself. An 83 per cent

Big Ten free throw shooter, his charity
toss sailed off the mark. Mike McGee
reached out to grab a baseball pass at
the other end, but his left foot managed
to find the end line. Illinois had seven
seconds in which to tie the game and
produce yet another overtime situation.
Gray took the inbound pass, dribbled
to his left, and took a jump-shot from
about 15 feet. The ball caromed sharply
off the outer rim, where Paul
Heuerman was in perfect position to
hold onto it for dear life and preserve
one more in a series of nip-and-tuck
"We tried to isolate Gray and see if he
could get a good shot," explained Hen-
son. "We wanted him to take it."
"We had a lot of opportunities at the
end," he continued. "I thought we took,
the high-percentage shot. The shots just
have to fall for you to win."
"We got the last four rebounds. That
was the key thing," said an emotionally
drained but elated Orr. "We sucked it
up and played good defense down the
The second half was a sharp contrast
to the first stanza, which saw both
teams fast breaking and maintaining a
frenzied tempo. Illinois trailed the en-
tire way, but they never drifted far
behind, and headed into the locker
room at halftime trailing by only three,
In the first seven minutes, Heuerman
was successful in isolating on cent
James Griffin, the player who hounde
the Wolverines inside throughout their
80-69 loss in Champaign four weeks ago.
Henson soon decided to replace Griffin
with Derek Holcomb, but the Michigan
pivotman continued to hit from a
favorite spot along the baseline. It
wasn't until the second half that the in-
side began to cave in on the 6-8 junior;
he mustered only one bucket in the final

minutes after Northwestern grabbed a 50-42 advantage on
the shooting of Campbell and junior guard Rob Roberson,
who added 14 points.
With Northwestern leading 52-44, Purdue's Joe Barry
Carroll got a dunk, and Arnett Hallman hit two jump shots to
cut the lead to 52-50 with 4:56 left.
Northwestern's 7-foot-2 Brian Jung hit a jump shot, but

Freshman Gaddie Rathel then sank one of two free throws
for Northwestern with 23 seconds left.
With 13 seconds left, Campbell intercepted a pass near the
free throw circle. He was fouled by Carroll and sank the first
of two free throws to ice the game.
Wisconsin 80, MSU 66
MADISON-Wisconsin outscord Michigan State 10-2 in th
early moments of the second half and went on to beat th
Spartans 80-66 in a Big Ten game last night.

Wisconsin led by as many as 16 points in the second half
before the Spartans rallied to cut the deficit to eight, k63-55t
with six minutes left. But Matthews made a three-point play
and then hit a jump shot to pull Wisconsin out of trouble.
Gregory spent the first 13 minutes on the bench as a
disciplinary measure for making an obscene gesture in the
Badgers' 68-59 loss to Michigan last Saturday.
