'Cats,

77-52

+'.

By JON MORELAND
Special to the Daily
EVANSTON - For the first 30 minutes last night,
Michigan found itself entangled in yet another tightt
Big Ten basketball game.
Then the Wolverines scored 14 unanswered points t
against Northwestern here, and suddenly found t
themselves enjoying their first breather of the con-
ference season, a 77-52 triumph over the last-place ;
Wildcats in McGaw Hall.
IT WAS A CLOSE CONTEST when Northwestern's t
John Egan converted a lay-up with 10 minutes left in I
the game, cutting Michigan's lead to five points at 57-
52.
That's when Mike McGee and Johnny Johnson, hit-l
ting a pair of buckets apiece, pulled the Wolverines c
away from the Wildcats and into a large lead which t
they never relinquished.I
"We treated this game with special importance,"
said Michigan coach Bill Frieder. "We were worried c
Windy City breeze

about being lethargic so we tried to run and press and
control the tempo of the game."
FRIEDER ALSO SAID HE was pleased with the
game-deciding 14-point stretch in the second half.
"(Just before the string) we called time out and told
them to just stick with the game plan. We didn't tell
them to do anything different," Frieder said. -
"It was a nice spurt and McGee played well in that
stretch."
With his performance last night, McGee moved into
the number five spot on the all-time Big Ten scoring
list. He is only 83 points behind Cazzie Russell on the
all-time Michigan scoring list.
MICHIGAN MAINTAINED leads of five to seven
points throughout most of the first fourteen minutes
of the first half, and when Jim Stack converted a
three-point play, Michigan's lead was cut to 24-20
with six minutes left. Michigan then went on an 8-1
spurt over the next two minutes to take early control
of the game.

A dunk by Thad Garner, followed by a pair :qf
baskets by Johnson and another 20-footer by Garnter
provided the scoring during the stretch. North-
western was only able to counter with a single Rod
Roberson free-throw during the stretch, and when
Northwestern called time out with 4:09 left, Michigan
had a 32-21 lead.
A lay-up by Paul Schultz and a pair of free throw
by Stack cut Michigan's lead back to seven, kit
Michigan came back when Garner hit a pair of free
throws and McGee connected on a lay-up to give the
Wolverines another 11-point lead at 36-25.
In the final two minutes of the first half, North
western outscored Michigan, 6-2, as Roberson con-
verted on a pair of field goals and Egan made a lay-
up.
Michigan's only score in that stretch was a lay-up
by McGee. That enabled the Wolverines to take a 38-
31 lead itito the lockerroom at halftime.
