Coach Dave Strack's hands, pink
as a rare steak with a rawness
no dishwater and detergent could
inflict, told you what kind of
game it had been for a basketball
Some coaches pull hair, others
scream abusively, and a few just
weep with heads in lap, but Strack
horting his team to SCORE,
SCORE, SCORE if the contest is
close. Last night against Tennes-
see (yes, they do play basketball
down there) he was at his mad-
clap best as Michigan struggled
to a 71-63 triumph.
"You shouldn't have to subject
yourself to this so early," moaned
Strack, hands clasped, after the
And it was something to be sub-
jected to, I'll tell you.
Tennessee is college basketball's
avowed champion of negative bas-
ketball. The Volunteers don't go
out on the court determined to
score more than the opposition.
Their hardcourt weltanschauung is
to hold the enemy to zero or
close to it. This philosophy netted
80 per cent victories last season,
and the best defensive statistics
in the nation.
This kind of basketball is nuts
and bolts mechanical. It com-
pensates for lack of real talent.
But as Michigan showed, it gen-
erally can't beat ability. Cazzie
Russell does not respect defense.
There was probably no real
turning point in the court tete a
tete. Michigan was simply about
eight points better.
The Wolverines couldn't afford
to hide much against Tennessee
as they might have done against
some sacrificial lamb. They un-
veiled a full-court zone press, ala
UCLA, and harassed the Vols with
Bruin-like vigor. Michigan's big
man, Craig Dill or Jim Myers flap-
ped his arms and tried to intimi-
date the man taking the ball out
of bounds. John Clawson and John
Thompson covered the backcourt
area, Cazzie positioned himself at
the center line looking for the long
pass, and Oliver Darden played
goalie, in effect, spiking hopes for
an easy cripple. Strack admits that
some of the philosophy behind the
maneuver is similar to John Wood-
en's west coast formula. What the
defense also means-though does
not say it in so many words - is
that this year's team can run
miles further than last year's be-
cause Bill Buntin is gone.
Buntin was a magnificent play-
er, the best college center in the,
nation last season, but he had
midriff bulge which meant the
press was not a viable alterna-
tive. This year, Michigan's man
in the' post is built like a post so
the pressure will be on. '
Last night's unveiling not only
displayed a slick new defense but'
some old names in different roles.
John Clawson drilled eight for
16 from the field plus four of
six from the line for 20 big ones,
While Tennessee was surrounding
Cazzie, Clawson was taking aim.
John Thompson moved well at
guard, but Craig Dill was pushed
around in the pivot, snagging a
mere three rebounds. His replace-
ment, Jim Myers, operated aggres-
sively in his short opportunity and
stuck some pizazz into the zone
Still The Caz
But with all the strategems and
rookies it was still Cazzie that
made the show. He scored 29
points, plucked 10 rebounds, and,
flashed four assists. It took over
six minutes for him to record a
field goal, but he quickened the
pace after that. And Cazzie ex-
hibited the same gusto and flam-
boyance on the court that has
made basketball a continuous joy
at Michigan for four years.
As a corn-chip munching re-
porter from Knoxville blurted out
after watching Cazzie send a draft
down the Volunteers' backs, "he's
something else, ain't he."
Cazzie is something else. Ten-
nessee Coach Ray Mears wished
he were somewhere else, however.
The game was a zig zag affair
from the start. Michigan would
Crunch ahead, make grand indica-
tions of pulling a rout, and then
the Vols would call time, absorb
a Mears lip lashing, and go out to 64-61 lead. But Clawson popped
