13-YEAR SKID TO BE HALTED?

Wolverines battle Hoosiers jinx

By DAVE RENBARGER
Bill Frieder has had enough. He's
fed up with losing to Indiana at IU's
Assembly Hall all the time.
Frieder, Michigan's assistant
basketball coach for the past six years,
has never seen the Wolverines beat the
Hoosiers in Bloomington. What's wor-
se, neither has his boss, Johnny Orr,
and he's been around for 12 years.
So Frieder speaks for Orr and the rest
of the team when he talks of the
challenge that awaits Michigan tonight
in Indiana.
"We have not beaten them in
Bloomington since Cazzie Russell, and
since then Cazzie's already been
through the pros," said the exasperated
Frieder. '
"OUR LAST WIN down there was in
1966, 13 years ago. Since that time,
we've gone down there with Campy
Russell, with Rickey Green, with Phil

Hubbard, with teams that were rated
number one, with all kinds of things
going for us, and we've still come out of
there with a loss."
Over the 13 year span, Michigan has
dropped 11 straight games. Some were
real blowouts, like the 74-48 decision in
1975. Others were a bit closer, such as
the 72-67 overtime affair in Indiana's
undefeated season, 1976. And, in 1977,
Michigan did win a game in Assembly
Hall, but that was against Holy Cross in
the NCAA tourney.
Tonight's foe will be none other than
the Hoosiers, and Frieder is hoping that
his high-flying crew can break the In-
diana jinx once and for all.
"NATURALLY, WE'RE . pointing to
go down there and snap this nonsense{
and beat Indiana in Bloomington," he
said.
Besides this purely personal motive,
there is also the small matter of the Big

Ten race, which the Wolverines,
miraculously enough, are still involved
in. By virtue of their two last-second
triumphs last week, Michigan jumped
to fourth place in the conference with a
4-4 mark. Indiana is one step behind at
3-5, so neither team can really afford
another loss at this stage.
The Hoosiers suffered a costly loss
last Saturday in Columbus. Bobby
Knight's team had a nine point lead and
the ball with less than two minutes left
in the game, only to collapse and allow
Ohio State to win in overtime.
"IT WILL BE imperative for us to
shake off any effects from last' Satur-
day's game and play as well as we
can," Knight said.
Knight, the strict disciplinarian, has
been juggling his lineup a bit this
season, looking for a combination that
can consistently produce. Thus far, the
Hoosiers, 11-9 overall, can best be
described as inconsitent. Earlier they
topped Purdue by nine points before
being slaughtered by Michigan State
(82-56). Then they nearly knocked off
the Buckeyes last week.
Forward Mike Woodson will be coun-
ted on to do most of Indiana's scoring.
The sharpshooting junior is the fifth-
leading scorer in the Big Ten,
averaging 19.8 ppg. It will be in-
teresting to see whether Orr summons
Tommy Staton from the backcourt to
check Woodlson defensively, or if he
gives the job to Mike McGee.
THE ONLY other starter who
averages in double figures for the
Hoosiers is 6-9 center Ray Tolbert (11.3
ppg). What Indiana lacks inscorers, it
makes up with in size, with a total
height advantage of one foot over

Michigan. Despite their size, the
Hoosiers are the second worst reboun-
ding team in the Big Ten.
Orr will counter with the same lineup
he unveiled a week ago against
Michigan State, including seniors
Sta ton, Hubbard and Alan Hardy, plus
McGee and Keith Smith. It's the eighth
different lineup he's tried at one time or
another this season, and so far, it's
working just fine.
"I called in the seniors (before the
MSU game) and , told 'em we we're
going to count on 'em and give 'em a
shot," said Orr. "We were going down
the drain, and they either did it or we
were going to go with the younger kids.
And they responded like I hoped they
would."
WOLVERINE TALES: Third guard
Marty Bodnar takes a back seat to
nobody in Big Ten field goal percen-
tage. The 6-3 sophomore, whose last-
second layup beat Illinois last week,
has hit on 60.3 percent of his floor at-
tempts, tops in the conference . .
Teammate Hardy's 58.6 clip places him
third in that category.
Despite a 25 point effort against the
Illini, McGee dropped to sixth (19.6
ppg) in the scoring race . . . Johnny
Johnson's sprained knee is all better
now, but he's got to pass up Staton,
Bodnar and Smith in Orr's guard
rotation.
The Wolverines' last three wins have
all come on buzzer shots. What's going
on? Frieder explained, "Canham wants
to keep that attendance up so he says,
'Make those games exciting."' Perhaps
fearful of his job, Frieder quickly ad-
ded, "Make sure you say that I said that
jokingly."

Woody gets respect

By the Associated Press
CLEMSON, S.C.-Charlie Bauman
says he doesn't understand why Woody
Hayes threw a punch at him in the
Gator Bowl, but that he respects the
fired Ohio Stale football coach and has
invited him to Clemson's spring prac-
tice.
Bauman, in an interview Tuesday
with the Atlanta Journal, said Hayes
called him last Sunday to discuss the
incident. After the conversation, his fir-,

st with Hayes since the Dec. 30 incident,
Bauman, who was not hurt by the pun-
ch, said he still doesn't know what
prompted the 65-year-old Hayes to hit
him.
"IF I COULD be around him for a
while maybe it would be different," '
said Bauman, a sophomore from Run-
nemede, N.J. "But, right now, I can't
understand him."
However, said Bauman, "I respected
him before and I still do. I respect him
for what he did for me (in helping the
sport of football). He's been an in-
spiration to me."
Meanwhile, back in Columbus Hayes'
players of 28 Ohio State University
football seasons are throwing a reunion
party for their old coach.
"We're very excited about it," said
former All-American end Dean
Dugger, director of the Columbus Red
Cross.
DUGGER SAYS the bash will be held
Friday, March 2, at a downtown
Columbus hotel and will be restricted to
bonafide members of Hayes' squads at
the Big Ten school.
"The response so far has been fan-
tastic. We feel this will be the most out-
standing collection of football talent at
one place in history," said Dugger.
"We want this to be a great night for
Woody," he said. "We feel very
strongly that this must be a 'family' oc-
casion with only Woody, his former
players and former coaches-nobody
else."

Terry traded
ATLANTA - The Atlanta Hawks traded No. 1 draft choice Butch-Lee to
the Cleveland Cavaliers yesterday in exchange for former Michigan State
star Terry Furlow, the National Basketball Association club announced.
The Cavaliers also will receive future considerations in exchange for the
6-foot-4 Furlow, who is averaging 13.3 points a game.
Lee, a 6-foot guard, was named the 1978 College Basketball Player of the
Year by The Associated Press in his final year at Marquette. He has
averaged 7.7 points a game this year for the Hawks.
Furlow, a No. 1 draft choice of the Philadelphia 76ers in 1976, was traded
to Cleveland prior to the 1977-78 season.

Bad News for Barnes
BOSTON - Boston Celtics forward Marvin Barnes, frequently among
the missing of late, was suspended for two games yesterday by the National
Basketball Association team which is struggling to regroup.
The suspension - through the NBA all-star game break - was con-
sidered mild punishment for Barnes, who had missed practices.
Celtics President Red Auerbach took the action after locating the tem-
porarily-missing Barnes in St. Louis and ordering him back to Boston for a
showdown yesterday.

Tech tagged
BLACKSBURG, Va. - One Virginia Tech football player was suspended
and Coach Bill Dooley promised disciplinary action against two others after
the three were convicted of assault and battery charges yesterday in connec-
tion with a campus altercation.
The charges stemmed from an altercation involving five students and
the football players.
The students said a car failed to stop as the group crossed the street and
followed one student onto the sidewalk. Several persons reportedly jumped
from the car, knocked one student down and chased his friends.
All-Stars on tube
PONTIAC-The Stroh Brewery Co. bought 4,000 general admission
tickets to make Sunday's NBA All-Star game a sellout, the Detroit Pistons
said yesterday.
The Pistons said the purchase by the Detroit-based brewery meant they
will lift a blackout so the game can be televised in the Detroit and Toledo
areas.
Stroh's donated the tickets to the Detroit public schools, which shared
them with students in the Detroit Catholic League.
