The Minnesota Golden Gophers lived
up their their reputation for having an
awesome offensive attack as. they
whipped Michigan, 6-2 last night at Yost
Ice Arena.
The game went Minnesota's way

Erickson
r one goal, three assists

first stanza to blank Michigan for the
'first 20 minutes.
THE WOLVERINES got some in-
spiration in the lockerroom, though, as
they came out hitting in the second
period. The offense brought the crowd
of 4,609 to their feet with exciting
skating and their first real surge of the
night. Most of the shots were off target,
however, due to a Gopher zone that
clogged up the net, and the Wolverines
came up dry on the scoring column for
the first half of the period.
"They played well in front of their
goaltender," said Giordano. "It seemed
like they had four in front of the goal all
the time.'"
The Gophers got their offense back on
track at 10:32 with their third goalof
the evening on a rebounded shot that
was knocked in by Erickson.
WHAT WOULD have been the
Gophers' fourth goal, a shot by Scott
Bjugstad, was called back because the
sophomore center hit the puck into the
net with his hand instead of his stick.
Michigan scored its first goal of the
night at 14:20 when Gordie Hampson
scored on his third try after Jetland
knocked the puck back at him twice.
A surprised Fricker was bombarded
only 20 seconds later on a bullet from
the slot fired by junior defenseman
Dave Dillon.

MICHIGAN SCORED their second
and final goal of the evening at 7:05 in
the third period. Defenseman Dave
Richter scored his first goal of the
season when he took a pass from Enzo
Augimeri and fired the puck cleanly
past everyone from beyond the right
face-off circle.
Minnesota notched its final score at
10:30 when Hartzell broke away and
zinged the puck straight through Var-
vari's legs.
"It's a game of inches," said Gior-
dano. "And tonight the inches showed
up. We were always just off the puck."

THE GOPHERS took a 5-1 lead at
18:46 when Aaron Broten flicked in a
wrist shot on a breakaway after a pass
from Erickson.
again in the second period, Fricker
stopped 12 shots while Jetland had only
six shots on goal to contend with, stop-
ping five.
But Giordano decided to pull Fricker
in the third period in favor of senior
netminder Rudy Varvari. "I put
somebody in there to spark the team,"
said Giordano, who wasn't impressed
with Fricker's performance.

Michigan's women swimmers broke records left and right
last night in Matt Mann Pool, and managed to leave Wiscon-
sin in their wake, 102-29.
Sue Cahill, who along with Melinda Copp and Denise Stun-
tzner has given the Wolverines a tremendous freshmen trio,
led the tankers by turning in a Big Ten record-breaking per-
formance with a time of 2:05.05 in the 200-yard butterfly.
Sophomore Carolyn Clymer also made the record book, as
she busted a pool mark in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of
24.28.
The milestones didn't end there, however. In another out-
standing swim, Stuntzner broke another pool record and
raced to the best 500-yard freestyle performance of her
career, a 4:59.54 clocking.
All three women - Cahill, Clymer, and Stuntzner -
qualified for the AIAW Division I National Championships
with their efforts. The nationals will be held in Columbia,
S.C. in March.

Freshman Chris Hodson, also, posted a new Matt Mann.

"This was a real good dual meet for us," said Wolverine.,
swim coaclh Stuart Isaac. "This is the best we've done since
returning from Hawaii," he added refering to the Wolverines
training camp trip to Honolulu.
Isaac was particularly pleased with the record setting per-
formances. "That was excellent considering that some of the
old records were set in the Big Ten meet we had here last
year.
Isaac was also happy with the Wolverine tankers 400 yard
freestyle relay team of Clymer, Stuntzner, Suzanne Ander-
son, and Mary Rish which turned in a time of 3:35.05. Fresh-
man Dawn Anne Dahlinger, who finished second behind.

her lifetime best time of 2:11.03.

from the start as Michigan was guilty of
*an early penalty, exactly what acting
coach John Giordano said the
Wolverines would have to avoid.
On the ensuing power play, the
Gophers' all-star line of Steve Ulseth,
Neal Broten and Kevin Hartzell (134
points total) worked the puck around
until 3:47. Then Ulseth took his own
rebound, passed to Broten who was
waiting at goalie Paul li ricker's left
and caught the goalie leaning to the
right.
AT 14:08 the Gophers struck again
when Butsy Erickson slipped a pass to
*aron Broten, who flipped the puck
through Fricker's legs..
The Gophers dominated offensive
play, keeping the puck in Michigan's
zone for most of the period. Fricker

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:
'Red Sox trade Lynn

By SCOTT M. LEWIS
Special to the Daily
COLUMBUS - Overrated, over-
publicized, outhustled, and outsmarted.
Each of these unflattering adjectives
has been used to describe the early-
season performance of the Ohio State
basketball team, a team ranked sixth in
the pre-season polls and co-favored
(along with Indiana) to win the Big Ten
title.
Entering tonight's game here against
16th ranked (12-2, 3-2) Michigan, the
Buckeyes sport a rather ordinary 8-5
overally record (3-2 in the conference).
You won't find Ohio State in the
national rankings; the Buckeyes
haven't been there in weeks. Folks in
Columbus don't hesitate to express
their displeasure with head coach
Eldon Miller, who in five years has
revitalized the OSU program but whose
handling of talent is often called into
question.
IN RECENT OUTINGS, however, the
Buckeyes have begun to display some
of the superior talent which was bound

to surface sooner or later. Thursday
night at Minnesota, Miller's team
rallied ,from a 12-point deficit to smash
the giant-sized Gophers, 76-63, a road
victory matched in importance by its
conference-opening upset of Iowa.
One can detect a distinct pattern in
Ohio State's big Ten performance: a
sensational effort followed by
mediocrity. The win at Iowa was suc-
ceeded by a miserable showing at Per-
due, and an easy triumph ,yQer North-
western was offset by a loss to Indiana,
a game in which OSU shot only 35 per-
cent from the field.
Hopefully for Michigan, the pattern
won't be altered tonight. The
Wolverines, having played Thursday
night in their third overtime game in
five conference starts, stayed within
one game of first place by outlasting
Illinois, 80-76, in double overtime.
SENIOR GUARD Johnny Johnson,
who was hobbled earlier in the week by
a sore foot, had the best game of his
college career, hitting his first 12 shots
en route to a personal high 31 points.
Michigan needed the standout effort

from Johnson, particularly in the
second half when the Illini erased a 14-
point lead and sent the game into the
extra sessions.
Beating the Buckeyes tonight will be
as onerous a task as defeating Illinois,
perhaps a shade more so. The key to
success against Ohio State is no secret:
contain their talented, physical front
line, namely, center Herb Williams and
forward Clark Kellogg.
FOR THE WOLVERINES, it won't be
easy. Nothing comes easy for this
Michigan team. Tonight, coach Bill
Frieder's unit must find a way to check
Williams, the 6-10, 242-pounder who has
been dissatisfied with his play despite
scoring 17 points and collecting 8.3
rebounds per Big Ten game.
When one combines Williams' inside
ability with his fine shooting touch from
up to 15 feet, it becomes clear why the
Denver Nuggets wanted to make him
their number one pick LAST year.
Williams, however, eschewed the har-
dship route, passing up the riches of pro
ball for one year. "I figured that I'll be
playing a power forward position in the
NBA, and I wanted to work on certain
parts of my game," he said earlier in
the season.
One area in which h'e needs a bit of
work is intensity. Like another former
Big Ten standout pivot, Joe Barry
Carroll of Purdue, Williams oc-
casionally shows signs of sluggishness
and is outplayed by less talented op-
ponents.
KELLOGG IS A different, yet equally
intriguing, story. Last year the 6-8, 227-
pound forward was voted one of the top

five freshmen in the country, but
nonetheless heard a few jeers from the
St. John Arena fans. This season he is
leading the conference in rebounding
(11.5 rpg) and ranks near the top in
scoring (18.3 ppg) and free throw'
shooting.
Kellogg sometimes tries to carry too
much of the scoring burden, and is
prone to unleashing shots from beyond
his range. The Cleveland native is most
effective aro bhe basket, as Mifler
has discovere' eftr nearly a year and
a half.
Rounding out the front line is 6-9, 225-
pound senior Jim Smith, a defensive
specialist, i.e., a player who does not
shoot very often or very well.
The lack of consistency in the back-
court has plagued Ohio State
throughout the year. No one has
adequately replaced Kelvin Ransey,
the scoring wizard who graduated and
is now playing with the Portland
Trailblazers.
Carter Scott was supposed to step in
and run the offense, but he has been
mired in a season-long slump from
which he has just begun to escape. The
6-2 senior, who was benched by Miller
earlier this month, scored 16 points off
the bench against. Indiana and led OSU
with 25 at Minneapolis. He will -start
tonight alongside fiesty 5-9 Todd Penn.

Fred Lynn, the all-star center fielder
seeking his freedom from the Boston
Red Sox, through free agency was
traded yesterday to California along
with pitcher Steve Renko for pitchers
Frank Tanana, Joe Rudi and Jim Dor-
pey.
Men swim past Purdue
Special to the Daily
WEST LAFAYETTE-The men's
swim team easily drowned Purdue 93-
20 in a dual meet here yesterday.
Junior Tom Ernsting lead the team to
victory, winning the 200 yard medley in
1:59.036 and the 500 yard freestyle in
4:45.112. Ernsting was also a member o
the first place 400 yard medley relay
tem which finished in 3:36.179. Other
Delay winners include junior Rob
Crowder, sophomore Bruce Gemmell
and freshman Kristan Vandersluis.
Grapplers take Purdue
Special to the Daily
WEST LAFAYETTE-The Michigan
wrestling team found its first win on the
road as it defeated Purdue last 'night,
27-14. Michigan winners were by
*decision were Joe McFarland at 118
lbs., Namir Nadhir at 158, Steve Pierce
at, 167, Rob Recksteiner at 177. Mark
Pearson, at 142, ended his match in a
draw, while Pat McKay and Eric
Klasson, at the two heavy positions,

pinned their opponents. Losers for
Michigan were Jim Mathias, at 126, Bill
Goodill,134, and Tim Fagan, 150..
Tracksters host M' relays
For the first time since the start of
the indoor season, the entire Michigan
men's track team will compete in one
meet, as the Wolverines host the
Michigan Relays today at the Track
and Tennis building. The meet will give
the team, plus some 400 other athletes
from the Mid-American Conference,
Michigan State and various track clubs,
a chance to showcase their talent early
f in the season.
Coach Jack Harvey described the
competition as, "one of the best early
track meets. The way you know how
good a meet is," Harvey said, "is by
how many people qualify for the NCAA
meet. There should be quite a few who
qualify."
The Wolverines mile relay team is
already eligible for the NCAA indoor
championships, which will be held at
Joe Louis Arena in Detroit this March.
Other Michigan competitors who hope
to qualifydtoday are high jumper James
tRoss, and Andrew Bruce, who will be
running in the invitational 440 yard run.

THE BUCKEYES ... enter tonight's game tied with Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana for third place in
the Big Ten. They have scored a pair of major road victories (against Minnesota and Iowa), both
times rebounding from large first-half deficits.
STRENGTHS-Physical OSU front line of Williams, Kellogg, and Smith may pose problem for under-
sized Wolverines. Last year; extra effort at the defensive end nagated the Buckeyes' size advantage.
WEAKNESSES-If Carter Scott has an off-night, OSU is left without any scoring punch in the back-
court. Williams and Kellogg sometimes show questionable shot selection.
