Blue icers dominate
State, notch 9-2 win

I

By MARTHA CRALL
In what was tabbed a "Battle of
Goalies," Michigan instead turned it in-
to the "Michigan State Massacre," as
they pounded the Spartans, 9-2, last
night at Yost Ice Arena.
By the third period, the game was
pretty much in the bag, as the
Wolverines held a commanding 7-2 ad-
vantage.
It looked as if, after nine goals had
been scored in the first two periods, the
third might go scoreless, as both
goalies played a flawless seventeen
minutes.
But Roger Bourne made sure that it
didn't stay that way, when at 17:07 he
took a pass from John Blum and faked
Spartan goalie Bob Troscinski, who
dove early, leaving an empty net for
Bourne's second goal ofnthe game.
Ted Speers put icing on the cake with
his second goal at 19:13 with a slapshot
from the slot off of assists by Dave
Richter and Dave Fardig.
The Michigan defense and goalie

Paul Fricker recorded a sparkling per-
formance and brought the roaring par-
tisan crowd of 7,776 to their feet when
the Wolverines squelched a five-on-
three power play.
The scoring started early in the game
on a freak goal by Michigan State right
winger Ken Paraskevin. Michigan had
a power play and was so anxious to
score that defensemen Tim Manning
and John Blum roamed too deeply into
the offensive zone. When the
Wolverines lost the puck, Paraskevin
had a clear line to the goal. He broke
away and fired a slapshot from just
past the blue line. The shot caught
goalie Fricker completely off guard,
giving the Spartans a 1-0 lead at 3:54.
It didn't take the Wolverines long to
answer, though, and they quickly ran
up four goals on the Spartans.
The first was a four-on-three Blue ad-
vantage. Center Ted Speers got the
puck at the point and slipped it over
starting goalie Ron Scott's left
shoulder. The goal came at 7:03, with

OVERTIME ANOTHER TIME?:
'Hawk-y M

By SCOTT M. LEWIS
They're at it again. The Kardiac Kids
of college basketball, also known as the
Michigan Wolverines, are once again
driving their followers mad with
anxiety by sending games into over-
time and leaving the final verdict in
doubt until the last few seconds.
Today's 4:05 p.m. contest at Crisler
Arena between the Wolverines and
head coach Lute Olson's Iowa
Hawkeyes promises to fit the mold of
most Michigan conference games the
past two seasons: nerve-racking,
pulsating, and laden with emotion (The
game will be broadcast by radio station
WWJ-950 and telecast by WKBD Chan-
nel 50.)
LAST SEASON, as most fans recall,
"Michigan played in four straight over-
time games. So far in 1981, Bill
Frieder's bunch has participated in two
such affairs, last Saturday's double OT
thriller in Minneapolis and Thursday's
home battle against Indiana.
Yet while the pattern remains, thet
results have changed. Last year the'
Blue unit lost three o ts four overtime
games; this year it is 2-0 in the extra
sessions.
The Wolverines' success in the final
crucial moments has lifted them to the
top of the Big Ten, where they have
' plenty of company. The 11-1 cagers
(ranked eighth in the nation) are tied
with six conference teams, including
Iowa, at 2-1.
FRIEDER HAD precious little time
to savor Michigan's 55-52 win over the
defending Big Ten champion Hoosiers.
riarly yesterday he began plotting
ategy against the Hawkeyes, who
beat Wisconsin, 76-66, Thursday
evening.
The Hawkeyes shocked everyone last
spring by reaching the NCAA Final
Four, but they have long passed the
stage where they can sneak up on un-
suspecting opponents. Iowa is a
recognized member of the Big Ten's
upper echelon, and rival coaches
prepare for it accordingly.
Like its counterpart this afternoon,
.lwa is not bestowed with extraor-
dinary individual talent. The only
'genuine standout, guard Ronnie Lester,
has graduated, and no one on the
4 current roster can provide the spark
which Lester, when healthy, injected
.into his team.
BUT LIKE MICHIGAN, the
Hawkeyes play a cohesive team-
oriented brand of basketball. It's a style
of play which produced a 23-10 record
last year and a 10-2 overall mark this
season. And it's the type of team effort
which impressed coaches and writers
so much that they named Olson Coach
of the Year.
The only blemish on Iowa's current
conference record is a 58-56 loss at
home to Ohio State. In that contest, the
Hawkeyes built a 15-point first half
lead, but shot 30 percent from the field
in the second stanza as they scored but
18 points.
Leading the Iowa offense is senior 6-6
forward Vince Brookins, who has
finally earned starting status after
spending most of the past few seasons
as a top reserve. Brookins, who burned
Michigan for 25 points in Crisler last

year, was averaging 15 points and 10
rebounds per game entering Thur-
sday's contest at Madison.
FLANKING BROOKINS in the front
court are Steve Krafcisin, a 6-10 senior
center (10.5/6.0) and 6-6 Kevin Boyle,
an unselfish, tenacious player who saw
time at guard most of last year.
Olson has done some tinkering with
his starting personnel. Bob Hansen, a 6-
6 sophomore, broke into the starting
lineup Thursday on the strength of a
career-high 19-point performance
against Michigan State last weekend.
He joins veteran Kenny Arnold (11.7
ppg) in the backcourt. Boyle, mean-
while, moved to forward, replacing
Mark Gannon, who has lost 15 pounds in
a bout with the flu.
Olson expressed concern over
Michigan's quickness, especially that
of leading scorer Mike McGee (23.8
ppg). "The Michigan ballclub
possesses good speed and quickness,"
he said. "On defense they seem to be

cage ars
pressuring more than they did under
(former coach Johnny) Orr.
"MCGEE LOOKS QUICKER and is
playing harder than I ever remember
him. He appears to be at the top of his
game. And Marty Bodnar is really
looking for the basketball. He shoots
very well, as we found out last year."
Olson said his team's ability to
recover on defense will largely deter-
mine the game's outcome. "It will be a
game in which we'll have to be quick at
both ends of the court," he said.
"I expect to see some pressure zone
defense, and some man-to-man
pressure. It will be quite a test."
WOLVERINE TALES-Marty Bod-
nar set a career high with six rebounds
against Indiana Thursday night. . . A
win today is likely to elevate Michigan
to fifth or sixth in next week's wire ser-
vice polls. . . The Big Ten offers a rare
Sunday treat tomorrow when Indiana
visits Ohio State. The 1:05 p.m. game
can be seen on WDIV-TV Channel 4.

The Wolverines capitalized again
2:10 later when Bourne took his own
rebound and shot the puck past a felled
Scott.
At 16:02 Michigan struck again. Jeff
Mars winged a shot from the point, fed
by Paul Brandrup and Manning, that
richocheted off of Scott's leg and into
the net.
The Wolverines scored their fourth
goal of the period only 16 seconds later
on a four-on-four opportunity, when Joe
Milburn let, go a wild shot that was
helped into-the net by a Michigan State
defenseman.
"The first period was the best period
we've played all year," said Michigan
coach John Giordano. "Our offensive
zone play was fantastic."
In the second period Michigan picked
up where it left off with Brad Tippett
scoring Michigan's first short-handed
goal of the season at 5:05.
Tippett scored his second goal with a
little help from Scott, who deflected the
puck in at 14:09.
Blum concluded the second
period barrage at 18:21 on a four-on-
three power play off of a beautiful pass
from Richmond that found Blum per-
fectly situated in front of the net.

Injury-depleted Blue grapplers
take on highly-regarded NIU

By JOHN KERR
Michigan's injury-depleted wrestling
team will have its work cut out when it
hosts undefeated Northern Illinois
tonight at Crisler Arena.
The Huskies, who sport a 5-0-1 dual
meet ledger and have already defeated
Minnesota (which tied for third in the
Big Ten last season) are led by Ernie
Batch at 167 pounds. Michigan coach
Dale Bahr pointed out that Batch is
surrounded by many fine wrestlers and
added that Northern Illinois is very
"well balanced; pretty solid up and
down the line." However, Bahr is con-
fident that the Wolverines will rise to
the occasion.
"If we wrestle the way we are
capable of, we should do a good job,"
said Bahr.
The Wolverines' dual meet record fell
to 2-5 last Wednesday, when the grap-
plers lost to Cleveland State by a 25-18
score. That loss, like most of
Michigan's other setbacks this season
could have gone the other way if the
Wolverines had managed to win in just
one more weight class. The problem,
Bahr said, is that Michigan needs "one

more consistent winner. Right now we
have four wrestlers who win consisten-
tly for us; (Joe) McFarland, (Nemir)
Nadhir, (Pat) McKay and (Eric)
Klasson," said Bahr. "One more would
enable us to win some of the matches
we would otherwise lose."
Women thinclads
in Invitational
Prior to the first meet of the women's
track season, head coach Ken Simmons
was not particularly optimistic, predic-
ting that the best his team could hope to
finish in the three-team Michigan State
Invitational would be just ahead of Cen-
tral Michigan for second place behind
the Spartans.
But the women thinclades were not

listening. They narrowly defeated
Michigan State for first place, and
Simmon's humble outlook prior to the
meet at MSU has turned to guarded op-
timism for today's Western Michigan
Invitational.
"We have a chance of coming out on
top. I think they (the other teams) will
recognize the fact that we're in pretty
good shape, so they'll probably get
down to work," said Simmons.
In addition to Michigan, the top out-
fits in the 12-team meet are MSU, Cen-
tral Michigan and Western Ontario. To
win this Invitational, the Wolverines
will have to depend upon experience.
"We don't have too many outstanding
recruits. We're going with veterans,"
said Simmons.
