The free throw statistics are a
good indicatior of the different
types of teams the two All-Ameri-
cans play for. Dischinger is the
center of the Purdue offense and
many teams can afford to "sluff"
off two or even three men on him
when he has the ball. Consequently
he gets fouled quite often.

Lucas, on the other hand, is on
a team with tremendous scoring
balance (four of its five starters
are among the top 13 in Big Ten
scoring) and teams can't afford to
put more than on man on him.
So what do the two stars think
of each other, both on and off the
floor? Well, you might call it sort
