By RON POLLACK
After a doss earlier in the season,
Michigan basketball coach Bill Frieder
said that he and his team would "rip
down the nets" when it finally won its
second game of the year.
A 28-22 Michigan lead at halftime
against Michigan State at Crisler Arena
last night made such a post-game
celebration loom as a distinct possibility.
But in the end, the nets remained in
place, as the Spartans prevailed, 64-62.
The Wolverines' downfall was a 27-9
Michigan - State outburst over 12
minutes and 44 seconds of play in the
second half to give the Spartans a 53-38
lead with 6:09 remaining in the game.
"IN THE SECOND half we lost
momentum and enthusiasm," said
Michigan center Ike, Person, who
finished the game with a career-high 20
points.
"They went to the boards and they
were aggressive. We were outsized and
outmanned."
But the Wolverines fought back
valiantly behind the play of team cap-

Lain Thad Garner. Garner's outside
shooting was the key to a Michigan
comeback that saw a 13-point Michigan
State lead dwindle away. Over the last
3:53 of the game, Garner scored 11 of
his 23 points. Many of these points came
after starting guards Eric Turner and
Dan Pelekoudas had fouled out.
"When Erie and Pelekoudas fouled, I
saw that when we replaced them we
had no one to set it up," said Garner.
"So I had to take it upon myself."
THE WOLVERINES' comeback was
aided by the free throw shooting of
Spartan guard Kevin Smith. Smith, an
86 percent free throw shooter entering
the contest, could only convert on three
of eight in the game and one of five in
the last three minutes..
"It kind of surprised me," said Gar-
ner of Smith's inability to hit his free
throws. "It happens to everyone now
and then. Our fans were waving their
hands. His misses let us 'back in the
game."
Although the loss was a disappointing

one for Michigan, Person's play gave
cause for optimism.
"HE PLAYED extremely well," said
Frieder of Person, who scored 16 of his
20 points in the first half.
"He was good around the basket. We
were deliberate and pulled them out.
That opened up Ike."
"I just got myself all pumped up and
went all out," said Person. "In the first
half I was moving a lot, and Eric and
Thad were looking to me inside and it
worked out."
But in the second half, Michigan State
did a good job of shutting down Person,
limiting him to only four free throws. .
"THEY WERE boxing out (in the
second half),"said Person. "Ben Tower
individually boxed me out. And before I
could get to the boards, three or four
guys would hit me."
Spartan head coach Jud Heathcote
explained how his squad took control of
the boards in the second half, and in the

process outrebounded Michigan, 21-12,
in that stanza. "We sagged the zone in,
and gave them the outside shot," he
said.
Just as Michigan State held a big
second half lead only to see it disap-
pear, the Wolverines were well ahead
on the scoreboard in the first 'half.
Michigan outscored MSU 12-2 at one
point in the first half, with Person
leading the way to give Michigan a 24-14
lead. The 6-7 junior scored six of these
points on a layup, a 22-foot jumper and
a tip-in.
DESPITE THE loss, the Michigan
squad was praised by both Heathcote
and Frieder.
"Give Michigan credit. They came
back and we just feel fortunate that
time ran out," said Heathcote, noting
that his team's victory was not assured
until the final buzzer had sounded.
"Our kids fought back and I give
them credit for that," said Frieder.
"They've done that all year."
Michigan State was led in scoring by
Smith, who notched 23 points. Derek
Perry added 19.
Michigan's next game will be on the
road tomorrow at Iowa.

BIG TEN R OUNDUP:
Hawkeyes edge. wildcats, 49m48w

EVANSTON (AP)- Ken Arnold's
driving layup with nine seconds
remaining last night lifted sixth-ranked
Iowa to a hard-earned 49-48 Big Ten
basketball victory over Northwestern.
It marked the only lead of the night
for the Hawkeyes, who trailed
throughout the contest and were once
down by as much as 10 points because
of the shooting of Northwestern's cen-
ter Bob Grady, who poured in 24 points.
A THREE-POINT play by Grady
with 2:201eft gave Northwestern a 47-43
lead.
Mark Gannon hit on a couple of 18-
footers to pull the Hawkeyes to within

one point at 48-47. Steve Carfino stole an
inbound pass by Northwestern with 42
seconds left to give the Hawkeyes con-
trol.
Iowa' worked the ball until Arnold
finally drove in for the winning basket.
THE HAWKEYES boosted their Big
Ten record to 4-1 and are 12-2 overall
while Northwestern slipped to 2-3 in the
conference and 6-8 on the season.
Jim Stack had 10 points for North-
western while freshman Michael Payne
led Iowa with 12 and Carfino added 10.
Northwestern, with Grady scoring 13
of his team's first 17 points, grabbed
early leads of 11-4 and 17-13. A pair of

free throws by Arnold cut the lead to
two but Northwestern scored the next
eight points, six of them by Stack, for a
25-15 edge.
Four free throws by Payne cut it to
25-19 but a three-point play by Colin
Murray gave the Wildcats a 28-24 half-
time advantage.
Stack scored the first two baskets of
the second'half as Northwestern took a
32-24 lead before Iowa started chipping
away.
Minnesota 78, Wisconsin 57
MADISON (AP)- Fifth-ranked Min-
nesota, led by guards Darryl Mitchell

and Trent Tucker, charged to a 24-point
second-half lead during a 78-57 Big Ten
college basketball victory over Wiscon-
sin last night,.
Mitchell scored 18 points and Tucker
13 in helping Minnesota to its 12th vic-
tory in14 games. The Gophers are 4-1 in
the conference, while Wisconsin is 4-9
and 1-4.
Minnesota capitalized on 11 Wiscon-
sin turnovers in the first half, grabbing
a 35-24 intermission lead.
I With senior Keith Mitchell guarding,
Wisconsin held 7-foot-3 Minnesota cen-
ter Randy Breuer to 10 points, six less
than his Big Ten average.
