Hoosiers edge tankers

:

By CHUCK HARTWIG
The Michigan men's swim team sur-
prised everyone, including itself, last
night as the Wolverines nearly pulled
off an upset before falling to defending
Big Ten champion Indiana, 60-53, at
Matt Mann Pool.
The two teams werre tied 53-53
heading into the final event, the 400-
yard freestyle relay, but the undefeated
Hoosiers bolted into an early lead in the
race and held off a strong kick by
Michigan's Bob Murray on the last leg
to seal the victory.
Michigan coach Bill Farley felt the
close finish and narrow loss nonetheless
built the confidence of his team. "The
team knows they can do it now, and
that's the important thing," he said.
Murray echoed Farley's sentiments.

in final race, 60-53

"We showed a lot of team character,
and pulled together as a team. It gave
us a lot of confidence," he said.
Murray added that the team perfor-
med much better than was expected
going into the meet. He said many of
the Wolverines "put in tremendous ef-
forts" during the races.
Murray himself came away with a
pair of victories for his efforts, winning
the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events in
times of 21.09 and 46.48 seconds, respec-

tively. Both were season bests for the
senior co-captain. Michigan's other
double winner was diver Ron Meerriott,
who won both the one-meter and three-
meter events by comfortable margins.
Other Wolverine winners included
Scott Crowder in the 200-yard butterfly,
Bruce Gemmell in the 200-yard
backstroke and Tom Ernsting in the
200-yard breaststroke.
A subdued Indiana coach Doc Coun-
silman said Michigan "was up very

high for the meet and swam very well."
Indiana, he said, "swam an average
meet. There were some disappointmen-
ts and .some outstanding performan.
ces."
Farley stressed that the Wolverines,
unlike other teams, will not cut back on
their practice workload in the weeks
ahead, but instead will practice in an
attempt to peak for the Big Ten cham-
pionships which occur five weeks from.
now.
"I think we're better than everyone
thinks eve are," said Farley. "I think
we re going to make a great showing in
the Big Tens."
Michigan, 5-2 overall and 2-2 in the
Big Ten, faces Ohio State in its next
meet February 14 at Matt Mann.

COLORADO SPRINGS-Brad
Tippett's goal at 18:25 of the
second period vaulted the
Michigan icers into a 3-3 tie with
Colorado College after two
periods of play in Broadmoor
Arena here last night.
Tippett's goal, which came on
assists from John Blum and Ted
Speers, capped a period which
saw the puck flip into the net five

times. Michigan had led 1-0 a.t
the end of one period.
Colorado College scored a pair
of goals in the first five minutes
of the second stanza, but Blum
scored on assists from Dave
Richter and Roger Bourne at the
9:36 mark to tie the game at 2-2.
The Tigers' Bruce Aikens not-
ched his second goal of the night
at 13:57 before Tippett tied it
back up.

WISCONSIN HOSTS BLUE CAGERS:
Badgers on the rebound

i

By JON MORELAND
special to the Daily
MADISON , The Michigan basket-
ball team may feel a bit more at ease
when it takes the floor this afternoon in
stately Wisconsin Field House for a
game against the Badgers.
The two-tiered gym is a unique place-
as far as the Wolverines are concerned,
for it is here that they earned their only
Big Ten road win of the 1980'season - a
73-69 double overtime victory. They
completed the sweep by pinning a 68-59
defeat on the Badgers in Ann Arbor.
NOT EVEN Northwestern or'
Michigan State were as friendly in their
role as hosts. The cagers boived to both
the Wildcats-and §pakans away from

home last year.
When Wisconsin dropped its first four
games of the conference season,
Michigan followers looking ahead on
the schedule invariably added this
game to the win column. But this is not
the same Badger squad that was swept
by the Wolverines and collapsed earlier
this month.
"(Wisconsin coach Bill) Cofield
really has turned them around," said
Michigan mentor Bill Frieder. Frieder
was referring to the Badgers' perfor-
mance in their last three games, which
consisted of wins over Michigan State
and Illinois a four-point loss to Ohio
State.
FItRIEDER WAS quick to point out
that Wisconsin's performance in

Columbus was especially significant,
since "not many teams in the country
are going to win down there." 6
Frieder's own team (which stands 4-3
in the conference), meanwhile, eclipsed
last year's road victory total (of one)
with a 77-52 thrashing of Northwestern
Thursday night in McGaw Hall. The
Wolverines pulled out an 80-76 double
overtime win at Minnesota Jan. 10 for
their first road triumph.
"We're treating these two games
(Northwestern and Wisconsin) with
special importance," said Frieder, em-
phasizing that Michigan must improve
upon last year's 3-3 mark against the
conference's lower echelon of teams.
IN PREPARATION for the Badgers,
Frieder hashis team looking at their
strong, physical pair of frontcourt
players - center Larry Petty and for-
ward Claude Gregory.
"They're as good a pair as we're
going to face," said Frieder. "Matching
up against their size is our biggest
problem."
Gregory is Wisconsin's leading
scorer, while Petty has done yeoman-
like work for Cofield's crew. Against
the Buckeyes and Herb Williams, all
Petty did was score 16 points and hold
Williams to single scoring figures for
the first time in 89 games.
