Loss to Cowbo.ys leaves cagers at 9-1
By JIM DWORMAN
Bill Frieder tried to play the Scrooge this holiday
season, but he was upstaged by the Oklahoma State
The Michigan basketball coach, who scheduled
practice for his team on Christmas day, couldn't
match the performance of the Cowboys, who handed
the Wolverines their only defeat thus far this season,
78-70, in the opening round of the Toledo Blade-Glass
City Classic on December 21.
MICHIGAN WON its other four contests played
since the end of fall semester classes to bring its
record to 9-1.
Against the run-and-gun Cowboys, who have beaten
Tulsa and lost a one-point decision to Louisville, the
Wolverines led for most of the game before allowing
it to be tied with three seconds remaining in
regulation. Oklahoma State blew Michigan out in
The Wolverines, however, could have won the
game in the usual 40 minutes, according to Frieder.
"It was a game we could have won and should have
won," said the third-year head coach. "We made
some foolish plays and let them off the hook."
PERHAPS THE most foolish play happened with 13
seconds left on the clock and Michigan holding a 67-65
lead and the ball. Isaac Person, the Wolverines'
senior forward, tried to drive the lane and pass off but
threw the ball away. Oklahoma State came down
court and tied the game on a wide open, 15-foot
baseline jumper by guard Bill Self with three seconds
"The final mistake that Ike made, it just was a play
that shouldn't be made," said Frieder. "In the last 15
seconds you just want to protect the ball. You don't
even want to take a shot."
In the consolation game of the tournament,
Michigan bounced back to crush an overmatched
Vermont team, 71-45. In the absence of Eric Turner,
who sat out the game with a twisted ankle, Leslie
Rockymore led the Wolverines with 19 points.
Michigan won its only road game prior to the Glass
City Classic by rallying to nip Detroit, 65-63 at
Calihan Hall. Playing much of the game without the
services of Turner, who sat on the bench in foul
trouble, the Wolverines held close to the then-winless
Titans before a pressure defense and Turner's return
to the lineup allowed Michigan to tie the game at 63 in
the final minute.
r" DETROIT MISSED on its next scoring opportunity
and gave the game to Michigan by fouling freshman
Rob Henderson with just 12 seconds left on the clock.
Henderson, a better-than-90-percent free throw
shooter in high school, connected on both ends of a
one-and-one to keep the Wolverines unbeaten.
"We wanted to foul Ike Person first and Leslie
Rockymore second," said Detroit coach Don Sicko,
who last year was Frieder's top assistant at
Michigan. "We just fouled the wrong guy."
Following the Toledo tournament, the Wolverines
returned to Crisler Arena to dominate a smaller
Florida A&M team, 83-49. Michigan used all fifteen of
its players and ten of them scored, five in double
figures. Among the five was Henderson, who played
his fourth consecutive strong game, adding nine
rebounds to his 10 points.
"He's my only consistent big man," said Frieder.
The Wolverines concluded the semester break in
style on December 30 with a 99-80 thrashing of highly-
regarded Penn. The Quakers, who entered the game
with a victory over once top-ranked Villanova under
their belts, couldn't keep up with Michigan's run-and-
gun attack. Eric Turner led the Wolverines with 23
points while Tim McCormick added a career-high 17.
nts and Harte contributed 12 points and 11 rebounds.
'HE WOLVERINES next visited Dayton and were bombed
-75. Flyers coach Linda Makowski defeated her high
ool coach, Michigan's Gloria Soluk, in that one.

core the first basket but never trailed again in the game.

The Wolverine icers redeemed them-
selves after losing to Michigan State, 6-
3, by pounding Notre Dame, 12-3; in the
consolation game of the 18th annual
Great Lakes Invitational College
Hockey Tournament. The game was
played before a Joe Louis Arena crowd
-of 21,347, the largest crowd to ever wit-
ness a hockey game in North America.
Michigan tied tournament records for
the most goals (12), assists (22) and
points (34) in the contest with the Irish.
Michigan's Paul Spring, Kelly Mc-
Crimmon, and Brad Tippett each had
two goals in the game.
THE WOLVERINES were not so for-
tunate, however, in the first game of the
tournament. Michigan State rattled off
three quick goals in the first period
against Michigan, the first coming at
11:58, on an unassisted Dee Rizzo goal.
Senior center Joe Milburn provided
the opening goal of the game for the
Wolverines at the 12:11 mark to cap off
a power play. Milburn's score came
when Michigan State already had built
up a 5-0 lead.
The Spartans grabbed the tour-
nament championship with a 5-3 victory
over Michigan Tech. The Spartans'
Dale Krentz snapped a 2-2 tie at the 3:00
mark of the third period. After Tech's
Ward Sparrow knotted the game again
at 10:09, Krentz scored at 13:32 off a

other Wolverines even made the top
The Spartans then took 1-2 in the
balance beam with a 9.1 by Bonnie Ellis
and an 8.65 by Angela Deaver. Then
Beckwith and Nancy Papows both got
season-high 8.6's in the floor exercise,
but that was only good enough for four-

of MSU took first place, tied at 8.95.
All her strong performances added
up to Beckwith winning the all-around
title with 34.6 points, just ahead of the

the team title with 167.3 points, followed
by Michigan at 162.3, Western Michigan
