Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-The Michigan swimming team, paced j
by brilliant individual performances by Tom Szuba, Gord
Downie and diver Don Craine, swamped an outmanned
Michigan State squad 71-52 yesterday afternoon. The win
ups the Wolverines' conference record to 3-1.
The Wolverines lost the first event of the meet,
the 400 yard medley relay, but never trailed again after
they took first and second in the 1000 freestyle. Szuba
won the 1000 at 10:02.9, followed by teammate Joe
Bauer at 10:03.7.
Craine won both diving events, crushing the Spartans'
highly touted freshman, Jesse Griffin.
Downie won the 200-yard freestyle in a time of 1:44.3
. and Norm Semchyshen finished third as the Wolverines
opened up a 23-16 lead.
The Spartans made one final charge, however, as their
super sprinters Glen Disosway and Bruce Wright, tied the
meet at 24-24 with a one-two finish in the 50 yard freestyle.
Szuba and Rob Bauman ended any State hopes for
an upset as Szuba swam a 1:58.4 to win the 200-yard
individual medley, followed by Bauman's second-place
2:00.9. The sweep thrust the Blue into the lead for
The 100 yard freestyle was the afternoon's thriller as
Downie picked up his second first place of the meet, edg-

clocking of 48.6.

______________ Marc Feldman-
The free throw .. .
. foul shot
FREE THROWS, foul shots, charity tosses. For decades sports-
writers have unsuccessfuilly attempted to make this dull aspect
of basketball more appealing.
No fan sits spellbound when a player toes the line while a
group of large fellows stand around with their hands upraised.
For lack of a better penal system, free throws have been
used to punish transgressors of the rules since basketball's
invention in 1896.
Presently, the foul shooting regulations in college basket-
ball and the National Basketball Association (NBA) differ in
certain aspects. The maior differences arise after a team
passes the prescribed "foul limit" for a half (college) or
At this point, usually about midway through the period, the
In College: -fo'led in the act of shooting-two shots.
-Non-shooting foul-one shot, and if successful,
In the NBA-fouled in the act of shooting-three chances to
-non-shooting fo"l-two shots.
Among the maze of foul shooting rules, the collegiate one-
and-one is the most challenging. Miss the first attempt, and two
points go down the drain. In the NBA, missing the first might
entitle you to a couple more chances to score.
In the 1973-74 season, the 232 maor college teams con-
verted 155,196 free shots in 226,776 attempts for 68.4 per cent.
The NBA players hit with more accuracy, canning 27,294 out
of 35,392 or 77.1 per cent.
Althogh neither the NBA or National Collegiate Snorts
Services keen such statistics, the riles differences would in-
crease the already considerable overall gan of 8.7 per cent. If
nercentage of maximum points were compiled, the second shot
of potential one-and-ones would be incl'ided, while the meaningless
misses in three for two, and two for one situations would be
Effectively, the foul shot has becnne an unimnortant aspect
of NBA basketball. Not only are the shooters better, but the
league riles allow a greater margin for error.
One reason for the NBA rles is to eliminate the
"strategic foul." One shndders at the thought of a mangled
Wilt Chamberlain, a notoriously poor fonl shooter (51 per
cent career), who wvold have been fouled reeatedly by
third-rate centers, if the one-and-one rule had been in effect.
However, the vast maiority of NBA players shoot far more
accurately than Chanberlain, and the extension of the one-and-
one to the pros, with the college penalties for intentional fouling
included also, would be a positive step.
Since foul shots are universally boring, cutting down on the
number taken would be welcome. In college ball last year,
37.4 free shots were taken in a 40 minute game, but the pros
took 50.8 shots in 48 minutes.
Still, the semi-intentional foul by the college team trailing
by five to eight points in the final minutes, remains a problem.
However, an adoption of the pro three-for-two would deter
boring foul orgies like the one at East Lansing last Saturday.
Clearly, both the college and pros have some good ideas
about foul regulations. Generally, the one-and-one adds a certain
importance to each free throw, but encourages indiscriminate
fouling in the later stages of games not quite beyond reach.
Therefore, inserting the three-for-two and the other current NBA
rules in the last two minutes of each half would streamline the
Foul shooting rules change all the time, like the "common
foul" rules introduced in the 1972-73 season. Free throws have
become too automatic in the NBA-installation of the one-and-
one in many situations might 'even wake up a few fans.
