Blue upset bid cut short by

playoff series between Michigan
and Michigan State featured bone-
jarring hitting and two nail-biting
finishes but ended with a familiar
This time, though, the Spartans
didn't outclass or embarrass their
cross-state rivals. Instead, they used
their experience and home-ice
advantage to escape with an 8-7
overtime victory Friday night and a
63 win Saturday night.
BILL SHIBICKY'S empty-
net goal with 19 seconds left in
Saturday night's game guaranteed
the Spartans a sweep and sent the
Munn Ice Arena crowd into a wild
frenzy. The fans were both ecstatic
and relieved to be rid of the
Wolverines, who finished their
season with a 14-25-1 mark.
Head coach Ron Mason now
takes his Spartans, 28-9-2, into
next weekend's CCHA Final Four
at Joe Louis Arena.
"I'm just glad we're there," said
Mason. "I mean, there are no
guarantees anymore in this league
that you're going to get to Joe
"This was no easy series by any
matter of means. Michigan could
have very easily upset a team in
"It was just one of those
penalty on Friday I
games," said Michigan State the third period was clean until the
goaltender Norm Foster, "where linesman whistled Michigan for too
whoever had the last shot was
going to win."
THE WOLVERINES and
Spartans put on a show Friday
night. Both teams flew up and
down the ice, each exchanging
flurries qf scoring chances and
punches. But the game and the
series will be remembered for what
transpired in the final minute.
Spartans will remember Mitch
Messier's game-tying goal that
came with 11 ticks left on the
clock. Wolverines will remember
penalty that gave Michigan State a
one-man advantage at 19:05.
Kip Miller completed the
Michigan State comeback at 2:03
of the overtime by taking a pass
from brother Kevin Miller and
sliding the puck past goaltender
MICHIGAN had taken a 7-6
lead at 18:10 of the third period,
when Billy Powers deposited the
puck behind Spartan goaltender
Norm Foster off a perfect feed from
many men on the ice.
"It's a tough call that late in an
important game," Michigan head
coach Red Berenson said. "When
you play on the road you're not
going to expect any breaks and
you're not going to expect any
advantages at all. We have to earn
everything we get. I thought we
earned enough tonight but it wasn't
"Both teams got breaks," Mason
said. "Maybe ours were more
timely. There were six guys on the
ice and the guy had guts enough to
call it and I'm glad he did."
"We got the break and we won it
but that's part of having home ice
and it's part of having an
experienced team that has been there
a lot of times."
KIP MILLER'S overtime
goal the night before was just the
beginning for him and his
linemates Kevin Miller and Bruce
Rendall. All three added a goal early
in the first period of Saturday
night's game to give Michigan
State a 3-0 lead.
Rendall then scored again at
16:02 of the second period and it
looked as if Michigan would
succumb to the Spartans and
Essensa without a battle.
"I think we caught them off
guard a little bit," Kevin Miller

Two out of three ain't bad, and it
might just be all the NCAA is
The Michigan basketball team
did a little work over break,
winning at home against
Northwestern and on the road
against Minnesota before losing to
Iowa in Iowa City on Saturday. The
Wolverines now stand at 18-10
overall, 9-7 in the conference, and
may have enough wins to be
included in the NCAA tournament.
Michigan started off with a 101-
73 rout of Northwestern, in which
six Wolverines scored in double
figures. Gary Grant led the charge
with 20 points.
"They had a lot of second-shot
1 baskets," said Northwestern coach
BillsFoster. "Not only that, they
had some exciting second shots -
guys coming out of the rafters to
"When we get a second shot, it's
a- little tip-in, and then we take a
day off to celebrate. That's why
we're not having practice tomorrow
- we got a little tip-in."
The game included an
unscheduled bout between
Michigan's Glen Rice and
Northwestern's Brian Pitts. In
ike . two oj
response to a Rice elbow, Pitts
threw a punch but hit nothing but
air. Antoine Joubert stepped in to
break up the fracas.
Steve Stoyko added a three-point
field goal in the victory.
The Wolverines took, their
version of a circus act to
Minneapolis, and the Golden
Gophers did nothing but watch
Grant and Joubert. The duo
accounted for Michigan's first 25
points. Mark Hughes finally made a
free throw with 9:32 left in the first
half to break the streak.
Joubert finished with a career-
high 34 points, while Grant scored
all 19 of his points in the first half.
Rice added 23.
This game too featured a few
extra-curricular activities, as Minne-
sota's Terence Woods received a
technical foul for slamming Mike
Griffin to the floor.
Iowa avenged their earlier loss in
Ann Arbor by defeating the
Wolverines 95-85 on Saturday.
Grant led Michigan with 28 points,
while Garde Thompson scored 23.
