LATE JUMPER EDGES GOPHERS
- in double OT
By MARK FISCHER
Special to the Daily
sank a 20-foot jumper with five seconds
left to give Mifhigan an incredible 68-67
double overtime conference victory
over Minnesota last night, before 17,250
stunned fans in Williams Arena.
The Wolverines trailed throughout
the entire second half, but fought back
from a six-point deficit to tie the contest
on a Mike McGee junper with about
two minutes remaining. Seconds later,
Mark Bodnar grabbed a loose ball
rebound and Michigan ran down the
clock for a last shot, but McGee's shot
at the buzzer was no good, thus forcing
the first overtime.
The two teams exchanged buckets to
open the extra stanza before Tim Mc-
Cormick hit a pair of free throws to give
the Wolverines a 61-59 lead with just
under a minute left in the first over-
time. They got the ball back on a
missed shot by John Wiley, but Johnny
Johnson missed a layup and Tim Mc-
Cormick traveled after grabbing the
Minnesota took the ball downcourt
with 21 seconds left, facing a tight man-
to-man Wolverine defense and plotting
for a last-second shot. The plan worked
to perfection-Darryl Mitchell swished
a 15-foot shot from the corner with just
one second showing on the clock to send
the game into a second overtime.
MINNESOTA (9-2) looked like it
would turn the tables on the Wolverines
and decide the verdict when the
Gophers took the lead early in the
second overtime, 63-61, on a Breuer
shot off a rebound. The Gophers
resumed possession on a turnover and
worked the clock, but McGee reboun-
ded a missed Gopher shot and was
fouled by Mitchell at the other end of
the court. McGee converted on the lat-
ter of two free throws to pull Michigan
within one, 63-62.
Buckets were once again exchanged
and the Wolverines were ahead, 66-65,
with 16 seconds left, when McCormick
missed the front end of a one-and-one
situation. Mitchell was fouled by
McGee at the other end and converted
both charity tosses, setting up the
Wolverines for Marty Bodnar's
dramatic final shot:
Both teams looked tense in the early
going and, like the temperature out-
side, were very cold from the floor in
the first part of the half.
Due to some tenacious Michigan
man-to-man defense inside, and in-
timidation from Minnesota's Randy
Breuer, (who blocked three Paul
Heuerman shots early in the game) the
score was only 14-12 for Michigan,
midway through the first half.
UNLIKE THE SHOOTING, the ac-
tion of the game itself was quite hot.
Michigan took the lead 20 seconds into
the game on a McGee jumper, and
didn't trail until six minutes later when
Coleman hit an inside shot for both his
and Minnesota's seventh and eighth
points of the game to put the Gophers
up by two.
Michigan came right back, taking
advantage of fast breaks and running
off a 10-4 spurt on its hosts, as the
Wolverines took what was the biggest
lead of the game up to that point, 18-12.
McGee stole the ball and raced the
length of the floor for an uncontested
layup to give them a six-point margin.
Minnesota head coach Jim Dutcher
then called a time out, and his Gophers
proceeded to net two unanswered
buckets, which put the capacity par-
tisan crowd into an ear-shattering fren-
zy. The crowd was quieted momen-
tarily minutes later by a McCormick
short jumper to put Michigan up, 20-17.
THE GOPHERS WENT back to the
attack, and after the lead see-sawed for
a few minutes, the two teams went into
the lockerroom with Minnesota up by a
narrow 29-28 margin.
Despite Minnesota's great height ad-
vantage, the Gophers out-rebounded
Michigan by only two and both McGee
(13 points), McCormick (9) and Garner
(6) were able to score inside.
