Special to the Daily
CHAMPAIGN - The fog covering
southeastern Michigan might have
delayed the Michigan cagers' trip to
Illinois, but it didn't delay the outcome
of the game.
Clutch freethrow shooting down the
stretch allowed Illinois to slide past
Michigan 67-64 before 16,492 fans at
Assembly Hall last night.
The Wolverines, who fell to 7-6 in the
conference, held a 62-58 edge with 1:33
left in the game. But the Fighting Illini,
playing tenacious defense, scrapped
back to score five straight points. A
three-point play by Illinois center

James Griffin allowed the Illini to take
the lead.
FOLLOWING GRIFFIN's free
throw, the Illini stole Paul Heuerman's
in-bounds pass. Craig Tucker then
stretched the Illini lead to three when
he made both ends of a one-and-one af-
ter being fouled by Johnny Johnson. Af-
ter Michigan failed to score on the next
trip down the court, Illinois' Perry
Range missed the front end of his one-
and-one, giving Michigan the ball with
40 seconds left.
Mike McGee was then fouled by
Illinois' Derek Holcomb, and he
responded with two successful free
throws, pulling the Wolverines back to
within one. McGee then stole the in-
bounds pass, but failed to capitalize on
the opportunity to put his team back on
top as he was called for travelling - a
frequent problem for the 6-5 senior.
That allowed the Illini to hold on to the
three-point lead, raising them to 9-4 in
the Big Ten.
"I HAVE NO qualms at all about my
players," said Michigan coach Bill
Frieder. "We did make some crucial

mistakes in the end, but we can't play
much better than that. You have to give
Illinois' defense a little credit. They're
all damn good players no matter what
anyone says in the papers."
Frieder was upset by a story ap-
pearing in yesterday's editions of the
Champaign-Urbana News Gazette,
criticizing him for heaping excessive
praise on the Illini. "I don't like reading
in the papers that I praise them too
much," said Frieder. "They're a damn
good team."
The game was close throughout the
first half as Michigan went into the
dressing room at half time carrying a
33-29 lead. The game remained close
throughout most of the second half as
the teams exchanged leads several
times before the Illini finally pulled
away. "This was a super game to win,"
said Illini coach Lou Henson. "I thought
the key to winning was our defense.
They (Michigan) are a bunch of great
shooters. It's hard to beat them when
you get down."
The loss is the third straight for the

Wolverines, and puts them three games
behind the league-leading Iowa
Hawkeyes. McGee led the Wolverines
as usual with 24 points and Johnny
Johnson added 15 in a losing cause.
Illinois was led by senior forward Eddie
Johnson, who tallied 18 points.
The Blue cagers can take some com-
fort in the fact that the last place Nor-
thwestern Wildcats will be visiting
Crisler Arena for a Saturday contest.
