and pulled to a comfortable 45-30
lead at the half.
The only thing that kept the
Wolverines in the game in the last
part of the first half was their
phenomenal foul shooting as they
sank 10 out of 11 attempts.
The Wolverine's continued their
frigid shooting in the early min-
utes of the second half. Michi-
gan's shots continually bounded
off the rim or went in the basket
and out again.
Then with about 5 minutes of
the second half gone, the Wolver-
ines got hot for the only time in
the game as they cut Minnesota's
lead from 17 to 4 points, 59-55.
Then as in the first half, Michi-
gan's shooting cooled suddenly.
The Gophers then scored 15 points
to the Wolverines' three points to
put the game on ice.
Coach Bill Perigo substituted
freely in the last few minutes as
Michigan trailed by 15 points and
had no chance to close the gap.
Randy Tarrier who didn't play in
the first half played an important
part in the Wolverines' brief
comeback drive. He grabbed sev-
eral rebounds and made some fine
Michigan expected to have
trouble under the boards against
Minnesota but did fairly well. The
Wolverines had 96 shots against
the Gophers 70, but they did not
make use of their shots.
It was proved again last night
that the only certain thing in the
Big Ten is that the home team
almost always wins. On last
night's full schedule Indiana was
the only team that managed to
win on the opposition's court. The
Hoosiers outscored Wisconsin, 93-
87, as their starting five scored 91
of their points.

B'M' Pucksters Reaeh Peak,
But Too Late, Says Renfrew
By JIM BENAGH
Usually pessimistic Coach Don
Canham made a complete about
face, and reviewed his squad's
performance in Saturday's Michi-
gan State Relays with optimism,
despite the failure of Michigan to
win a first place.
The story at East Lansing was
simple: talent and experience pre-
vailed. The Big Eight Conference
teams marched away with every
In the individual events, honors
were annexed by seasoned per-
formers like Glenn Davis, Ohio
State; Jesse Nixon, Wisconsin; Al
Oerter and Ernie Shelby, Kansas;
vaulter Ed Hoyle, Marquette; and
Dee Givens, Oklahoma sprinter.
"Some of our kids made mistakes
that just aren't made by more
experienced runners," Canham
said. But when he reviewed the
times of many of his sophomores,
he pointed with pride to the re-
sults of such relay-men as Earl
Deardorff, Jim Simpson, Cam
Gray, Bruce Fischer and John
Twomey. Sophomore sprinters Pete
Parker and Freeman Watkins also
rated his mention.
Three supposed "showdown"
games last night between unde-
feated I-M residence halls "A"

Cooley scored 45 points in the
second half to overwhelm Michi-
gan, 62-33. The first half was a
brisk point-trading session which
ended with Cooley in front, 17-15.
But Cooley notched 10 in a row
at the start of the second half and
kept expanding its lead thereafter.
Ed Wahtera scored 19 points for
Cooley and Kim Greene 14.
Reid Bushong notched 14 points
as Van Tyne dumped Taylor, 48-
35, and Huber stopped Allen-
Rumsey, 30-15. Rumsey led at the
half, 8-2, but Huber started fast-
breaking successfully in the last
Lloyd scored eight straight
points in overtime to nip Hinsdale,
51-43, in another "A" game. "B"
dorm action was highlighted by
fluber's 31-21 conquest of Hins-
dale, in which Huber's Dick Syring
threw a\ wayward pass for a 50-
foot basket. Other scores:
Reeves 27, Wenley 25
Greene 25, Hayden 19
Winchell 30, Scott 18
Adams 32, Gomberg 31
Hinsdale 36, Allen-Rumsey 14

Parker, Watkins and Lou Wil-
liams all fared well in the 75-yd.
sprint with each taking a second
in the preliminaries. Watkins and
Parker both were clocked at :07.8
Pete Stanger, a sophomore in
elgibility, earned Canham's praise
as "best hurdler I've had here (in
ten years)." He took two thirds in
exceptional competition and an-
chored Michigan to its best relay
finish-a second in the shuttle-
Ernie Simms, a Michigan junior,
gave Willie Atterberry, Michigan
State's reknown sophomore, stiff
competition in the two-mile relay,
and helped the Wolverines defeat
the Spartans in 3:22.2 for fifth
place in the mile relay.

"We're better now than at any
other time this ,year, but it's too
late," commented Michigan hockey
coach Al Renfrew after his ice
team split an away weekend series
Michigan's pucksters bowed to
Minnesota Friday night, 4-2, as
the Gophers took advantage of the
Wolverines inability to get started,
on twi goals in the first period, by
Myron Grafstrom, and defense-
men Herb Brooks. These. goals
proved the margin of difference
as each team tallied two goals in
the final two periods.
Michigan's goalgetters were Neil
McDonald and Gary Unsworth,
while Dick Burg and Brooks notch-
ed the Gophers other two goals.
Bob White paced Michigan to
tie for fifth place with Michigan
State by scoring three quick goals
'in the third period of Saturday's
game which the Wolverines won,
Murray Williamson and Mike
Pearson scored for Minnesota
while Neil McDonald scored an
insurance goal with only 20 sec-
onds remaining in the game.
Despite the fact the Wolverines
have failed to make the hockey
playoffs for the first time in 11
years; Renfrew describes the team
morale as high.
"The turning point of the season
could very well have been the
Denver series when McDonald was
out with his injury," said Ren-
"If we could've won those games,
we might have gone all the way."

Grapplers Improving Steadily
Despite Two Weekend Losses
By DAVE LYON
Dual meet losses at Minnesota
Friday and at Iowa State Saturday
ordinarily would have implied a
dismal weekend for the Michigan
But, there were some encour-
aging developments. One bright
spot was the performance of Mich-
igan sophomore 157 - pounder
Wayne King. In the Iowa State
defeat King emerged Michigan's
only individual winner. At Minne-
sota he held veteran Ron Baker,,
losing only by a 6-4 count.
Wolverine Larry Murray, 130-
lbs., also performed well. He forced
Minnesota's defending 123 - lbs.
champion Dick Mueller to come
from behind to earn a draw. At
Iowa State Murray was edged, 2-0,
on a takedown in the final seconds
of the first period.
Michigan's Mike Hoyles, wres-
tling at 123-lbs., won at Minnesota
and drew at Iowa State. Veteran
167-pounder Jack Marchello com-
piled a similar record dluring the
Max Pearson, whom Coach Cliff
Keen describes as a "natural 130-
pounder," wrestled at 137 and 147
in the weekend meets. This, plus
the fact Pearson's training has
suffered under a heavy academic
load, explains his 9-2 and 8-3
losses at Minnesota and Iowa
