THE PLAY-MAKING guard received
help in leading the attack from another
player who has gotten hot of late,
Richard Rellford. The 6-6 Floridian
tallied 12 points and capped off the suc-
cessful Michigan evening with a
ferocious dunk with less than 20 seconds
left to play.,
"Rellford's been playing great," said
Frieder. "It might have been
something I overlooked earlier, not
giving him enough playing time."
"I've been working hard every day,"
Rellford said. "I think I can play well

Special to the Daily
BIG RAPIDS - Riding a hat-trick performance by
defenseman Todd Carlile and a rejuvenated spirit, the
Wolverines broke a month-long victory drought by
knocking off Ferris State, 7-4, last night at the Ferris
State Ice Arena.
The victory,coupled with Lake Superior State's loss
to Michigan State, leaves Michigan alone in eighth
place, two points ahead of the Lakers in the battle.for
the final CCHA playoff berth.
JOHN ELLIOTT started in goal for the Wolverines in
an attempt to shake up the squad, which came into the
game on a seven-game winless streak. The junior from
Spencerville, Ont. turned in a sterling performance
and kept the Wolverines close until Carlile and the
power play took over in the third period.
Carlile tallied on Michigan power plays at 2:57 and
7:32 of the final stanza to make it 6-4 and give Michigan
command of the game. Paul Kobylarz added another
at 7:52 and the Wolverine penalty killing unit kept the B
Bulldogs off the board late- in the game to assure the
The hat-trick was the first of the season for
Michigan. The power play was also its most effective,
notching four goals.
"IT'S GOOD to win one," said Michigan coach John
Giordano. "We've been struggling and struggling and
the pucks finally went in.
"It was the mind changes, not the line changes," that
made the difference in the game according to Gior-
Things didn't start off well for Michigan. Just over a
minute into the opening period Ferris State broke out
of its own zone with four skaters against Mike Neff, as
every other Wolverine was caught going the Wrong
way. Graham Craig finished off a pass from Ray Zabel
to put the Bulldogs on top.
Seven minutes later, Michigan's Tom Stiles threw a
wayward pass onto the stick of the charging Bulldog
Tim,.Wendt at the Wolverine blue line. Wendt carried
the puck in and fed senior Randy Merrifield in front of
the net, who slid the puck past Elliott.
MICHIGAN GOT one back at 9:26 when Frank
Downing redirected a Chris Seychel pass past goalten-
der Rob Hughston.
The score stayed 2-1 the rest of the period, but only
because the Bulldogs blew numerous scoring chances.
Paul Lowdaen hit the crossbar on a clean breakaway
and four other Ferris State players had golden scoring
opportunities, but Elliott stood his ground and the
Wolverine net was not violated the rest of the period.
Ferris outshot the Wolverines 21-8 in the period.
A mental lapse in the first minute of the second
frame allowed Ferris to go up 3-1. All five Wolverine
skaters were heading for the bench for a player change
as Brad Hildestad brought the puck out of the Bulldog
zone. The defenseman hig a wide-open Craig on the left
side, away from the Michigan bench, and the junior
deposited it between Elliott's legs for his second goal of
The Wolverines got two power play goals, one from
Carlile and one from Seychel, to tie it at 3-3 with five
minutes gone in the period.
Then things started to get rough. By the time the
second, period was over, 13 penalties had been called,
eight for roughing, and the game was almost out of
control of the referees.
Ferris' Zabel scored with Bill Brauer in the box for
tripping at 11:07. Brad Jones countered for the
Wolverines at 18:20 to make it 4-4 heading into the final
Order was restored after the teams returned to the
ice for the last period, mostly due to the fact that the
Wolverines took firm command early.

BIG TEN ROUNDUP:
Reid, Purdue... boil Wildcats
WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) - Steve Reid
scored nine of his 15 points within a three-
minute span of the second half, sparking
Purdue over Northwestern 66-65 yesterday
as the 11th-ranked Boilermakers took sole
possession of first place in the race for the
Big Ten basketball championship. r
The lead changed hands six times in the
second half before a jumper by Reid put
Purdue ahead to stay, 46-45, with about eight
minutes to go. The score ignited a 12-2
Boilermaker spurt that broke open what had
been a close battle for most of the afternoon.
"WE DIDN'T DO a good job the first half
attacking their zone," said Purdue Coach
Gene Keady. "We just weren't sharp. I told
the players I thought Paul Schultz was
probably the most improved post man in the
league. He did a good job on the inside."
A free throw by Mack Gadis gave Purdue
a 56-47 lead, with 5:27 remaining, and Nor-
thwestern never seriously challenged again.
The Wildcats, who have now lost six con-
secutive games and nine of their last ten,
Wlaved without Art Aaron. The senior for-
ward, who has led Northwestern in nearly every
statistical category, is battling the flu and
didn't make the trip from Evanston.
Indiana 74 Minnesota 72
BLOOMINGTON (AP) - Uwe Blab's
bank shot with four seconds left in overtime
gave Indiana a 74-72 comeback victory over
Teammate Steve Alford scored the tying
basket with three seconds left in regulation
THE HOOSIERS, who trailed by as many
as 15 points with 16:22 left in the second half,
took the basketball with 4:24 left in the over-
time on a turnover and maintained
possession until Blab's shot. Minnesota elec-
ted to stay in its zone and the Hoosiers just'
kept passing the ball and dribbling until the
winning shot that gave Blab 19 points. He
had only four in the first half.
Alford, who found the range from 15 feet
to force the overtime, led Indiana with 23
points as the Hoosiers overcame a 33-point
performance by Tommy Davis.
Indiana pulled to within two points, 72-70,
on a pair of free throws by Stew Robinson
with -44 seconds to play. The Hoosiers
regained possession eight seconds later
when Marc Wilson was called for charging
into Alford, setting the stage for the fresh-
man's clutch shot.
Ohio State 71 Wisconsin 65
COLUMBUS (AP) - Tony Campbell,
scoring 20 points for his 55th straight game
in double figures, led Ohio State to a 71-65
decision over Wisconsin yesterday.
The Buckeyes, 7-4 in the Big Ten and 14-7
overall, posted their seventh triumph in
their last eight league games in defeating
the Badgers, 3-8 and 7-13, for the second
time in nine days.
OHIO STATE hit 10 straight field goal at-
tempts in one stretch of the first half for a
20-17 lead en route to a 33-31 lead at inter-
Wisconsin, however, rallied and led 44-43
with 12 minutes to play behind the shooting
of the league's one-two scorers, Cory
Blackwell and Rick Olson. Blackwell hit 17
points and Olson had 14.

DePaul nails Irish, 62-54
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Forward
Kevin Holmes scored 14 points as No. 2
DePaul beat Notre Dame, 62-54, yesterday
in college basketball.
Holmes' six field goals and two free throws
salvaged a victory for his veteran coach, Ray
Meyer, who was making his last coaching ap-
pearance at his alma mater.
THE FIGHTING Irish led 29-27 at the half,
but the Blue Demons, now 18-1, surged back to
open an 11-point advantage. A three-point
play by Dallas Comegys capped a seven-point
DePaul spurt as Notre Dame went scoreless
for nearly six minutes to fall behind 52-41 with
