The :people around Durham,
N.C., like to talk about Vic Bubas'
torrid recruiting. They ,.say that
all the Duke coach has to do is
walk in his office and pick up a
strategically marked phone which
is a direct line to every high school
in the nation.
It was two such calls made four
years ago which resulted in a 93-
72 Duke victory over the Michigan
cagemen last night. One was to
Missoula, Montana (area code
406). and the other was to Cresap-
town, Maryland (area code 301).
Missoula housed a high school
phenom named Mike Lewis. Cre-
saptown had their counterpart in
rangy Steve Vandenberg. The duo
has more than paid back the
phone bill, as witnessed by Lewis'
game-leading 32 points last night,
and Vandenberg's 23 tallies and
According to Michigan head
coach Dave ,Strack, the two 6-7,
225 pounders personally "destroy-
ed" the Wolverines. "We just
couldn't contain their big men,"
Strack moaned, "we just couldn't
keep them off the boards."
After holding the Blue Devils
at bay most of the first half,
Duke finally regained the lead
with 1:05 left in the first stanza
and left at intermission with a
In the opening minutes of the
second half, Michigan knotted the
contest at 41-41, 43-43, and then
a Bob Sullivan free throw gave
the Wolverines their only second
half lead at 44-43. Lewis' lay-up
at the 17:34 mark gave the Blue
Devils a -lead they never relin-
quished. From here to the final
buzzer Duke outscored the Wol-
verines 48 to 28.'
"It was this 18-minute span
which killed us," a dejected Strack
reported. "We played them good in
the- first half, but in that second
half we really made them look
Late in the first half, a Duke
change in defensive strategy seem-
ed to key the ultimate victory.
With 6:14 left in the first half,.,
Duke guard Claude Claiborne hit
a jumper to bring the Blue Devils
within two at 29-31. As Duke
trotted back on defense Bubas
jumped off the bench and told
them to go into a 2-3 zone, aban-
doning the old man-to-man align-
ment. From this point on Duke
controlled the momentum of the
"We went into the zone for a
number of reasons," Bubas ex-
plained after the game. "We had
been playing the zone in practice
and we wanted to test Michigan's
outside shooting. Also, we had
been fouling too much under-
neath. We thought from the zone
we could keep Michigan from get-
ting the 'junky' shots under the
basket, and it might also help
us to do a better job on the
In that first half, in which
Michigan held the lead for almost
17 minutes, the Wolverines out-
rebounded the Blue Devils 33-15.
Also, Jim Pitts got most of his
points under the basket or on free
throws which resulted from fouls;
under the bucket.3
In the second half, with the Blue
Devils operating from the 2-3 zone,
Duke outboarded Michigan 38-13.
IThe zone completely cut off Pitts
in that stanza, as he wasonly
able to get free on the baseline
for one lay-up.
"At half-time we decided to stay
with the zone," Bubas later noted.
"We liked the way we were get-
ting back at Michigan on the
Strack, on the other hand, was
reluctant to give credit for the
Duke victory to the zone. "I didn't
think at the time that the zone
would hurt us that much. At first,
we whipped the zone. We were still
getting the ball into the baseline.
Again it was that last 18-minute
stretch which beat us. Their big
men destroyed us inside."
"The way we try to break a 2-3
zone is to run a 1-3-1 offense.
This means that we send Pitts in-
to the baseline and have our
pivot-man slide off. But they were
crowding Rudy at the post and he
couldn't get free."

Last weekend, when he was in
Ann Arbor. Kentucky's venerable
coach Adolph (Baron) Rupp was
discussing some of the top teams
in his area.
"Duke should be a tough team
this year. They've got a couple
of big clows over there who can
hurt you if you're not careful,"
forecasted the Baron.
Unfortunately, Wolverine coach
Dave Strack wasn't present for
Rupp's revelation. His forever-
struggling band of cagers fell

"This is a funny club," Strack
noted. "There's got to be a key
somewhere, and we better find it
quick. Sure the team is sick at
heart now but there is one bright
spot. We challenged a fine Duke
team in the first half."
Duke, sporting a 2-0 record this
year, hop back to Durham. There
the Blue Devils start preparation
for their next contest against Ala-
bama at Tuscaloosa.
And Vic Bubas will probably be
making a few phone calls.
