Boilermakers blitz

Wolverines, 68-61

'4 -

Special to the Daily
EST LAFAYETTE-"It's disap-
inting to come back emptyhanded,"
said coach Johnny Orr after the
Wolverines finished a two-game swing
through Indiana yesterday with a 68-61
loss to Purdue. The defeat coupled with
the overtime setback against the
Hoosiers at Indiana Thursday night,
lowers Michigan's record to 2-2 in the
conference and 9-4 overall.:
"We worked hard and they played
rd to become a pretty good team.
rdue has an excellent team," Orr
said, adding in dismay, "You play your
ass off and you can't win a game."
Once again the Boilermakers were
led to victory by their All-American
center Joe Barry Carroll. The 7-2 cen-
ter, Carroll, tallied 20 points and six
rebounds. But that was a subpar game
for him.
"I thought we did a heck of a job
(defending Carroll). I think Joe Barry
Cpwroll is the best center in the coun-
W," said Orr.
Paul Heruerman, Michigan's 6-8 cen-

ter, did an excellent job of handling
Carroll when he was in the game. With
Heuerman the Wolverines played even
with Purdue. During the seven minutes
Heuerman missed in the game, Purdue
was able to build a seven-point lead
which they held onto the rest of the
Beside Carroll, the other big factor in
the Michigan loss was the play of
Michigan forward Mike McGee. McGee
was held to only seven points, his worst
performance of the season. After
bringing a 24.5 average and a .520 field
goal percentage into the contest,
McGee shot a miserable 2-12 from the
McGee was held scoreless in the first
20 minutes of play by the Boilermakers'
Dr. of Defense,. Arnette Hallman.
McGee was 0-8 from the field as he was
covered man-to-man by the 6-7
Hallman, who Purdue coach Lee Rose
said he believes is the top defensive
forward in the Big Ten.
But Orr $aid after the game that it
really wasn't the play of Hallman which
accounted for McGee's performance.

"Today he had the shots. He just
missed the shots he had," said Orr.
Purdue jumped out to an early 4-0
lead in the first minute of play before
Heuerman scored six unanswered poin-
ts to put Michigan on top 6-4. The
Wolverines and Boilermakers then ex-
changed baskets until Keith Smith hit
from the left corner making the score
12-8 and giving Michigan their biggest
lead of the game.
Michigan did not relinquish the lead
until 11:40 remained in the half as Mike
Scearce sank two free throws. Scearce
was sent to the line after being fouled
by Heuerman. It was Heuerman's
second personal in 19 seconds.
Michigan quickly regained the lead
on baskets by Smith and Thad Garner.
The Wolverines were able to hold off the
Boilermakers until a Carroll jumper
from eight feel put Purdue on top 26-25
with 7:33 left in the first half. I
At that time, the roof started to cave
in on the Wolverines before a capacity
Boilermaker partisan crowd of 14,123 in
Mackey Arena. Heuerman picked up
his third foul and took to the bench for

the rest of the half.
Heuerman's replacement, John
Garris, was quickly called for a foul
under the boards in a rebounding battle
with Hallman. Orr complained fiercely
about the call, citing Hallman's flying
elbows and told the referee, "Boy, I
guess that's why it's difficult to win on
the road." The official simply respon-
ded by forming a "T" with his hands.
Drake Morris sank both technicals
and Hallman converted both of his
charity tosses and the Boilermakers led
30-25, a lead they never relinquished the
remainder of the game.
Orr said after the game that it was his
first technical in five years. He added
jokingly, "So that's good. I was tired of
getting a record."
With Heuerman absent, the Boiler-
makers took a 37-30 lead to the
lockerroom at intermission.
Heuerman returned for the entire
second half as the Wolverines' starting
five played the full 20 minutes and kept
even with the Boilermakers.
The biggest lead of the half occurred
with 10:48 left when Purdue went up 51-

41. Michigan fought back and was able
to close the score down to 53-49, the
closest margin of the half, which oc-
curred with 9:06 lef t in the game. '
Purdue was able to hold off another
one of Michigan's on-the-road
comebacks and added a shot at the buz-
zer for the final margin.
Four Wolverines ended in double

figures as sharpshooting guard Marty
Bodnar led the team with 15 points.
Heuerman followed with 14 and Garner
added 13 with Smith netting 10.
The win for the tenth ranked Boiler-
makers puts them at 3-1 in the Big Ten
and 10-2 for the season. Purdue plays
fifth rated and unbeaten Syracuse on
national TV today in Mackey Arena.

Indiana losses .. .


Indiana slays

... not discouraging

O NE OF THE FACTORS that makes sports so intriguing is
the irony that many of its situations present. And how ironic it seems
that the Michigan Wolverines have done as much to establish themselves as
legitimate Big Ten contenders in their recent losses to Indiana and Purdue
as tiey did in any of their nine victories.
There may not be a tougher two-game swing on any schedule in the
country than Bloomington and West Lafayette, and coach Johnny Orr's
cagers performed admirably in both of them. They came oh-so-close in In-
diana's Assembly Hall madhouse, where officials are intimidated almost as
much by a rancorous crowd as they are by the presence of one Bobby Knight
on the end of the Hoosier bench.
And they played Purdue tough all the way yesterday in front of an even
louder Mackey Arena throng, where Orr became so upset by the first half of-
ficiating that he drew a rare technical foul. It appeared that Purdue big men
Joe Barry Carroll (7-1, 240), Arnette Hallman (6-7, 205), Mike Scearce (6-7,
210) and Ted Benson (6-10, 223) would be allowed to push their smaller, blue-
jeresyed opponents into Row 5 before a whistle blew. (Purdue received its
fourth team foul with just four minutes left in the first half).
To their credit, the officials called 'em both ways after the intermission,
prompting Orr's post-game remark, "I was glad the referees came back and
showed a little courage in the second half." Such is to be expected on the
road in the Big Ten however, and Michigan players responded to the
challenge he t jination and raw guts they've displayed all year.
Center. *Pal Hqun an played as well against Carroll as anyone could
expect his 6-8, 200-pound body to perform. He scored 14 points, mostly on out-
side jumpers and was the game's leading rebounder with seven, while still
not completely recovered from mononucleosis. He picked up three first half
fouls, however, and was replaced by 6-9 John Garris, who did the impossible,
knocking a Joe Barry shot back at him and drawing a charge on Carroll
seconds later.
Guards Marty Bodnar and Keith Smith both played well. Bodnar led
Michigan with 15 points on seven-for-ten from the field and played a hustlig,
never-give-in defense all day. Smith hit double figures with ten points, and
his ball-handling consistently beat the tough Purdue full-court press.
Thad Garner was his usual ative self on defense and contributed 13
points to Michigan's scoring, including five of nine from the field. He also
had five assists.
The wolverines were hurt by a subpar performance from Mike McGee,
'who went into the game averaging 24.5 points per game, but could manage
only two of 12 from the field and seven points against the Boilermakers.
McGee didn't shoot well in the second half of the game with Indiana either,
=and Orr suggested that "maybe he was pressing a little," especially with the
knowledge that Joe Barry was ready to swat away any low-trajectory shots.
If Michigan is to stay in the thick of the Big Ten race, he must recover
:his touch. The Wolverines can't afford the same loss of confidence that
plagued McGee's play last year.
One reason for McGee's low scoring was possibly the play of the Boiler-
maker's rugged defensive specialist Hallman, who Purdue coach Lee Rose
described as the best in the Big Ten at covering opposition scorers.
Hallman popped in 16 points as well, hitting seven of the nine shots he
took. Along with Carroll's 20 points, a ten-assist performance by guard Brian
Walker, and a 33-20 Boilermaker rebounding edge, proved to be just a little
too much for the crew from Ann Arbor.
Rose, for one, was impressed by the Wolverines, and mostly by the
coaching job that Orr is doing. "They lost a kid last year to the pros, and they
regrouped well.
"He (Orr) does a fabulous job with his kids. He is getting 100 per cent out
of them. They came out and played the game the way they had to play it.
They showed great patience and discipline all game. There isn't a better
coaching job than what he's done on this Indiana road trip."
The Big Ten should prove as wild and wacky as last year when Ohio
State blew a four-game conference lead. The talented Buckeyes are the cir-
cuit's only undefeated team thus far, but they haven't played in either
Bloomington or West Lafayette. I never thought I'd be saying this, but they
haven't played in Ann Arbor yet, either.

Antonides out of Sarnia Central High School in Canada has agreed to attend
