The Michigan hockey team

Western Michigan with a five-game
tinning streak on the road and a
*ve-game winless streak at home.

Pallin answered by rifling a slapshot
past Wolverine goalie Warren
Sharples from the right point. It was
Pallin's first career goal and provided
Western with the margin of victory.
Western coach Bill Wilkinson,
whose team has squandered several
leads this season, was pleased to
pull out a close game. "I think we
played similar to the way we played
(Friday) night," Wilkinson said.
"But tonight we were able to put the
puck in the net and Billy (Horn)
made the big saves at the right
times, especially in the third period."
MICHIGAN COACH Red
Berenson was disappointed in losing
after his team gained momentum in
the third period. "We scored two big
goals that got us back in the game,"
he said. "It was a heart-breaker to

Saturday's defeat came on the

almost all the way. The Wolverines

But Michigan center Don Stone

remaining to bring the Wolverines
within a goal. With just over four
minutes left, Wolverines goalie Tim
Keough kept the game within reach
with a save against Hoover, who had
a one-on-zero breakaway.
With less than two minutes to
play, O'Connor took the puck at the
red line, maneuvered between two
Western players, and drove a shot off
of Horn's chest. Center Todd Brost

"Coming from behind in the third
period is something we were glad to
do," Berenson said. "We didn't get as
many chances in the third period, but
we made them count. Keough made
some great saves."
For Wilkinson, the tie was a
continuation of the frustrations that
have plagued his team in recent
weeks. "It's tough to accept a tie
when you have a two-goal lead and
you're on a power play with seven
minutes left in your own building,"
he said. "These are the games you
have to win with, not lose or tie
Friday's tie on the road was a
moral victory for the Wolverines,
but Saturday's disappointment
reversed their spirits, as they came
away with only one point for the
second straight weekend and suffered

"We've done a lot of good
things," Berenson said. "We've been
in every game, but these are games
we should have been able to win."

WOLVERINES LOOK TO LEAVE HAWAII THREE-0:
goes to Maui finale
BY STEVE BLONDER
WITH STAFF REPORTS
Sitting on the Maui beaches,
Michigan guard Kirk Taylor decided
he would be the second guard Bill
Frieder put on his Christmas wish
list, and his play has helped lead
the Wolverines into the Maui
Classic final against Oklahoma.
Taylor stepped in to lead the
Wolverines to a 91-66 victory over
Vanderbilt on Friday and a 79-75
come-from-behind victory against
Memphis State on Saturday.
"Kirk Taylor has been
instrumental in each of those first
two wins," Frieder said. With
Rumeal Robinson in foul trouble,
Taylor was forced to bring the ball
up against the a trapping Memphis
State squad and a Vanderbilt team
that continually pressed.
Senior All-American Glen Rice
led six Wolverines in double
figures against Vanderbilt with 18
points, 15 of them in the first half,
as Michigan built a 37-19 halftime
lead. Sean Higgins added 17, all in
the second half, while Terry Mills
and Loy Vaught each scored 12.
Michigan came out flat against
Vanderbilt and converted only one
of three free throws.
"We haven't always been mak-
ing sound decisions on the court.
We've been forcing passes and tak-
ing ill-advised shots," Frieder said.
"But those are the kind of problems
you can correct if the kids are
playing hard, and they have been."
During the Wolverines' victory
over Memphis State, Mills and
Higgins spent most of the game on
the bench, watching Michigan
convert only 12 of 22 free throws.
Frieder said "neither was executing.
They weren't doing what it took to
play solid team basketball."
Mills came off the bench to hit
two key jumpers that gave
Michigan a 77-74 lead with 52
seconds left. Higgins converted two
free throws as time wore down to
seal the Michigan victory.
"Vanderbilt was tough because of
their overall team speed and their
ability to put the ball into the
basket. Memphis State was
difficult to handle because of their
strong rebounding game and their
defense," Frieder said. "In the
championship game, we're facing
an Oklahoma team that has all of
those strengths, plus a couple of
great players in Stacy King and
