Orr juggle
While we were gone:
Johnny Orr presented a much-
shuffled version of the Wolverines
against the Golden Gophers last night,
a starting lineup partly decided on in
the aftermath of Michigan's loss in the
opening round of the Sun Carnival tour-
ney during Christmas break and partly
by Phil Hubbard's ailing knee.
Texas Tech's 87-85 victory over the
Michigan quintet a week ago was due to
a lack of effort, according to Orr, who
saw 35 fouls whistled against his club.
Both of Michigan's big scorers, Phil
Hubbard and Mike McGee, sat out
many minutes of the game due to foul
trouble and the Wolverines fell
hopelessly behind the Red Raiders.
Michigan almost came back to win
that contest due to two new faces in last
night's lineup. Alan Hardy, who sat on
the bench in each of the Wolverines' fir-
st six games, came off the bench to
score 24 points and kept Michigan alive.
City Al also collected 11 rebounds in
perhaps the best game of his four-year
"Alan has consistently come off the
bench and done the job for us. Earlier in

the season, he wasn't doing that," said
assistant coach Bill Frieder. When we
lost (the Tech game) we felt that we
had to make a change and Alan is one of
those changes."
Orr and Frieder had placed Thad
Garner in the starting lineup at the
beginning of the season, in Hardy's old
forward spot. Neither man had yet

established dominance in the position
and it was hoped that Hardy' would
react to the challenge and improve his
overall game. That strategy worked.
"I have improved myself from the
beginning of the season about fifty per
cent," stated Hardy before last night's
game. "Having Garner in front did in-
spire me. I trusted the coaches'
decision and I think it has been a good
"My goal is to go out there and
dominate the game. I have a goal of
eight rebounds and thirteen points a
game, I'm not quite there (6.5 and 11.5,
respectively) yet," added the Detroit
native. "Basically though, it's the
The "other change" that Frieder
and Orr made was the placement of
Keith Smith at -one guard spot, usually
opposite Marty Bodnar. Smith has
greatly improved as the season has
progressed, with a career high 18 points
notched against Eastern Michigan.
Early in the season, Smith was having
problems with both his shooting and
ball handling. The freshman's shot
selection was poor, and he was making
Even with those problems, however,
it was evident that here was one
Wolverine who knew how to penetrate,

a talent essential to Michigan's
prospects when the Big Ten season
When Smith came off the bench in the
Tech game and scored twelve points in
thirteen minutes, he and Hardy nearly:
stole the game away from the Raiders,
and his performance on New Year's
Eve earned him the starting spot.
"He gets us moving when we are
tired and adds juice to our.offense," -
said Frieder. "Keith takes the ball- -
handling away from Marty (Bodnar)
which helps him get open for his shot.
He makes the second guard, whether w
it's Marty or Johnny Johnson, a great
"He hasn't shown you anything yet,"
states Hardy. "He's still learning and
experimenting. When he learns a few
things, pushes the ball up a little better,

Now is the time to make a great deal
on a TI programmable.

Obviously, though, the biggest
change is the day-to-day status of Hub-
bard. This time it isn't a new injury to
his knee that has knocked him out of the
lineup, it's wear and tear keeping him 4
out in much the same fashion Bob'
Lanier's knee keeps him away from the'
Pistons. If this trend continues,
Michigan is in trouble.
Hubb~ard had his knee drained Mon-y
day and has apparently reacted well to
treatment. Trainer Dan Campbell is
encouraged, and the decision whether
or not to play in last night's, game was
made by Michigan's team doctor,
Gerald O'Connor. With eight games w
scheduled in both January and
February, the wear and tear of the-
college season won't be getting any
easier, a fact O'Connor, Hubbard, Orr
and Michigan will have to face in
determining whether or not the
Wolverines are indeed going to be a
challenger for Big Ten honors.
