It was Concordin's first loss after six league victor. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - It's a hostile old world for Minnesota's basketball team away from Williams Arena. And the Gophers brave it again tonight at Northwestern after their hair-raising victory over Purdue. "We're going to win sooner or later on the road," said Capt. Whitey Johnson. "It may be tonight. We got the confidence we needed when we beat Purdue." Tonight the Gophers will need all of that confidence, plus all the luck they can marshal and anything else that can be corraled on short notice. Minnesota hasn't won a game all season away from Williams Arena. Northwestern, with two victories and two losses, has started slowly after being picked as one of the title favorites. third place. The Gophers' primary chore tonight is to stop 6-9 Joe Ruklik, the hook — shooting center who caused Ron Johnson so much grief a year ago. Coach 0 z z i e Cowles said he probably would use muscular 6-6 Jerry Butler against the Wildcat ace, presumably to prevent Johnson from fouling out and to permit him greater concentration on offense. Johnson and Butler teamed with Tommy Benson to move the Gophers into a first half gallop against Purdue Saturday but the horse almost didn't make it to the barn. les.
