The reaction 70Ge(t,p)72Ge has been investigated with a 15-MeV triton beam. 30 levels of 72Ge were observed up to about 4-MeV excitation, four of which were unreported previously. Angular distributions were measured and compared with distorted-wave Born-approximation calculations. Several new 0+ states have been observed in 72Ge, one of which, at 1.709 MeV, is a new state and is the third 0+ level in 72Ge. Many additional spin and parity assignments have been made. The 72Ge nucleus shows a pattern of 0+ states that is considerable different from that of other even Ge isotopes. But for higher spins and both parities, 72Ge is very similar to other even Ge nuclei.
