SECOND STRAIGHT OT WIN
Blue tops Indiana,55-52
By DREW SHARP
Mark Bodnar's three clutch free
rows in the final 23 seconds of over-
ne play gave Michigan a 55-52 upset
ctory over the Indiana Hoosiers last
ght before an enthused sellout crowd
Crisler Arena. It was the Wolverines'
cond consecutive overtime triumph.
"We had four straight overtime
imes last season. This year, we're
>ing for five," quipped coach Bill
rieder. "It was a typical Big Ten
ime in that it was a hard fought battle
Atween two good teams:"
BODNAR FIRST entered the game
ith two and a half minutes remaining
the overtime period and there was
fear that he might be cold coming into
the contest so late.
"I've got a great deal of confidence in

'I put him (Mark) in because he's a
great foul shooter and, in these
situations, you need your best foul
shooters in the game, even though you
give up some height."
Bodnar considered his climatic
buckets to be the highlight of his career.
"I'VE NEVER been happier. Those
were the biggest points of my life," said
Bodnar. "I was confident that I could
make the shots even though I had just
come off the bench for the first time of
The overtime period began with In-
diana winning the tip-off and All-
American guard Isiah Thomas connec-
ting on two of his team-leading 18 points
to give the Hoosiers a 50-48 advantage.
After Paul Heuerman missed a one-
and-one free throw attempt, Indiana
tried to open up its lead, but Thad Gar-
ner stepped in front of a Thomas pass
and delivered a fine lead pass to the
game's top scorer, Mike McGee, who
scored an easy layup to tie the game
INDIANA TOOK the ball and looked
as though it wanted to play for the last
shot; however, those ideas were, thwar-
ted when center Ray Tolbert was
caught travelling with 2:34 remaining
Frieder took a timeout to plan the
Wolverines' final strategy-play for the
final shot. They ate. up more than a
minute from the clock until Thomas
fouled Marty Bodnar, an 80 percent free
throw shooter. Bodnar canned both
shots and Michigan took a 52-50 lead
with 1:13 left.
Indiana forced the clock to tick down
to 55 seconds before calling a timeout.
When play continued, Thomas dished
the ball back to forward Ted Kitchel in
the corner. Kitchel arched a high shot
that bounded off the rim. Garner then
hauled in the clutch rebound. The
Wolverines ran the time down to 35
seconds when they called another
timeout. Heuerman avoided ,a near
disastrous situation when he quickly
called a timeoutafter his outlet, Bod-
nar, tripped and fell to the floor. When
Michigan finally did get the pass in-
bounds, Bodnar worked the ball around
until he was fouled. An 80 percent foul
shooter in his own right, Bodnar sank
the two shots to boost the Michigan ad-
vantage to four points, 54-50. Tolbert
countered with a bucket to cut the lead
to two, but Bodnar put the finishing
touches on a brilliant overall perfor-
mance by the Wolverines by sinking the

Ron Merriott's diving performance
was not enough to hold Michigan's
men's swimmers in a dual meet with
Wisconsin, as the Badgers over-
whelmed the Blue tankers, 67-46, to
score a Big Ten upset at Matt Mann
Pool last night.
Merriott won both the one- and three-
meter diving events with scores of
335.62 and 358.65, respectively, but
Wisconsin was claimed honors in all but
two of the remaining events to send the
Wolverines down to defeat for the first
time in three meets this season.
The only other Michigan winners
were senior Bob Murray, a narrow vic-
tor in the 100-year freestyle with a
clocking of 46.50 seconds, and Tom Er-
nsting, who was first in the 200-yard
breaststroke at 2:10.36.
