Ten days ago the Michigan
hockey team found itself hurtling
downward in the CCHA with a 1-8-
1 record in its last 10 league games.
The Wolverines slipped to fifth
place and faced a two-game series
against fourth-place Bowling Green,
winners of nine of its last 10.
Adversity surrounded the team
due to injuries and an off-ice
controversy involving four of its
players. "We need a big weekend,"
coach Red Berenson said prior to
the Bowling Green series.
They had a big weekend.
MICHIGAN swept the
Falcons with two solid third-period
efforts and continued its winning
ways this past weekend by
sweeping Ferris State.
Now the Wolverines sit all alone
in fourth place, five points ahead of
Bowling Green, only one point
behind third-place Illinois-Chicago.
The mark of the current
Michigan winning streak has been
the emergence of several players
who had much less impact in the
first part of the season.
key 'M' sweeps
The Helber brothers, Tim and
Mike, combined for five goals, in
the last two series, more than
doubling their season output.
Jim Ballantine scored twice in
the closing minutes to seal the win
over Bowling Green, then opened
the scoring against Ferris State last
Friday. He's also added two assists
in the past four games.
ON DEFENSE, Todd Cope-
land and Alex Roberts have
compensated for the absence of the
injured Brad Turner (four games)
and Mark Sorensen (two games).
Copeland scored two of his three
goals and assisted in five others in
the last two series.
"Al Roberts is playing the best
hockey of his career," Berenson
said. "Copeland is playing with a
little more confidence. They are
beginning to step up and play the
kind of hockey we thought they
were capable of."
Copeland and Roberts also
helped keep pressure off goalie
Warren Sharples, who was called
upon to save only 12 Ferris State
shots in Friday's win.
Sharples, the CCHA Player of
the Week, has given up only five
goals in the past four games. He
played as well as a goalie can play
two Fridays ago in the third period
against the Falcons. He made 12
saves, including several spectacular
stops while the teams were tied, 2-
2. Michigan scored four times in
the final six minutes to win, 6-2.
SATURDAY, Sharples was
called on to help again. Ferris State
outshot Michigan, 18-7, in the first
period, but Sharples was true to
each test and when the teams skated
off at intermission, Michigan led,
"They really came at us," Beren-
son said. "Sharples was the diffe-
rence in the game at that point."
The re-emergence of Denny
Felsner and the continued excellent
play of center Mike Moes are two
more factors in the Wolverines'
turnaround. Felsner, who started
fast then slumped in the mid-
season, scored four goals and had
two assists in the last four games.
Although Moes hasn't scored in
the last two weeks, his presence has

been felt in other ways. He had four
assists, including two that opened
the floodgates in Bowling Green.
DESPITE their recent fortunes,
though, the greatest test for the
Wolverines lies ahead. Six of their
final eight games will be played on
the road, where Michigan must
continue its winning ways.
The Wolverines must prove that
they can deal with success without
letdowns. Earlier, they won five out
of six to rise to second place in the
standings. With Ohio State, which
was tied for last place, next on their
schedule, it looked as if two more
wins were on the horizon.
Instead, the Buckeyes swept
Michigan. The Wolverines wound
up in a tailspin that lasted for two

Illinois became the first team this
season other than Duke to hold the
No. 1 position in The Associated
Press college basketball poll on
Monday. It also marked the first
time the Fighting Illini have held
that spot in the regular season in 37
The only undefeated Division 1
team, Illinois received 62 of the 65
first place votes cast and 1,296
points from the nationwide panel of
sportswriters and broadcasters. The
Fighting Illini were pushed to the
limit Sunday to win their 17th
straight, a 103-92 double-overtime
victory over Georgia Tech.
The last time Illinois held the
No.1 spot in the regular season was
in the poll released on Jan. 22, 1952
when it took over the top spot from
Kansas. The Fighting Illini held it
just one week as they lost to DePaul
four days later.
ILLINOIS was No. 1 in the
preseason poll for the 1952-53
season but lost an early season Big
Ten game with Minnesota.
Michigan, 15-3 after a 71-68 loss
to Wisconsin, dropped from sixth to
Duke had held the No. 1 spot in
the preseason poll and in the first
nine regular-season votings but the
Blue Devils, 13-2 lost their first
games of the season this week, a 20-
point home loss to North Carolina
and a 75-71 loss at Wake Forest to
fall to eighth in the voting.
GEORGETOWN, Louisville and
Oklahoma each advanced one place
in the voting as did Illinois.
The Hoyas, 14-1, took second
with one first-place vote and 1,173
points, just six more than
Louisville, 13-2, which hadthe
other two first-place votes.
Oklahoma, 15-2, moved up to
fourth with 1,079 points and was
followed by fellow Big Eight
member Missouri, 16-3 which
received 939 points in moving up
three places from last week.
Arizona, 13-2, which also moved
up three spots, was sixth with 884
points, nine more than North
Carolina, which improved to 16-3
with victories over Duke and North
