Orr, one of the few genuinely
nice people in college basketball,
took the criticisms directed at his
coaching of last year's Wolver-
ines very hard. He deserves an
opportunity to celebrate, and last
night he got it.
He was floating on air all night,
first in the locker room and
later in the lounge of the Cham-
paign Ramada Inn. The only per-
son who possibly could have been
higher than he was Bill Frieder,
who seemed amazed that he

pretty good team" said Orr after
the victory over Indiana. "I'm

game, played earlier this year, in
which the Spartans came within
a hairsbreadth of knocking off
the Irish. Perhaps Campy Rus-
sell can succeed where Terry
Furlow failed.
Meanwhile, Orr is relishing the
strange sensation of being recog-
nized as a coaching genius. Talk
of replacing him disappeared
about three months ago. People

are now praising his ability to
coach defense and mold a co-
hesive team, both complete re-
versals of the prevailing opinion
of a year ago.
It should be noted at this time
that Orr is dealing with different
material than he had available
last season. Last year's Wol-
verines were an impressive lot
on paper, but the potential never
materialized on the court.
Explained "Bird" Carter, "last
year, we had a lot of good people
who tried hard, but they only
played for themselves. When it
came to a close situation, they
would feel that it was their per-

else. They would take bad shots,
and Michigan would lose in the

slack, and Bobby Knight sat

Sports of The Daily
Indiana invited
Indiana's basketball team is on its way to St. Louis to
participate in the newest of post-season tourneys, the Conference
Commissioners' Tournament. After relinquishing their bid for
the NCAA berth to the surprising Wolverines, Bobby Knight's
Hoosiers are slated to represent the Big Ten against the second-
best teams of seven other leagues.
At first, there was some doubt as to whether Indiana was
willing to take part in what Coach Knight labeled "a tournament
for runners-up" and "a waste of time." He further stated, "We're
not a runner-up, we're a co-champion, and it's up to our players
whether or not they play. If Monday's game had been for the
championship, it would have been different."
An early release quoted Knight as saying, "The nlayers are
going to have to decide. Nobody has asked them if they want
to play and we're going to have to do it somehow."
Hwever, Big Ten Commissioner Wayne Duke and Indiana
Athletic Director Bill Orwig made it clear that the Hoosiers
would play. Duke, in reply to Knight's remarks after the playoff
loss, stated, "The league and the institution are committed to
the CCA."
The Hoosiers (20-5) meet the Volunteers of Tennessee from
the Southeastern Conference in opening round action Friday

Pistons pile it on
DETROIT ()-The hot shooting of Dave Bing, Bob Lanier
and Curtis Rowe sparked Detroit to a 113-108 victory over the
Golden State Warriors last night and reduced the Pistons magic
number to two for clinching a spot in the. National Basketball
Association playoffs.
The loss, coupled with Los Angeles' 109-102 victory over New
York, sliced Golden State's lead to seven percentage points over
the Lakers in the battle for first place in the Pacific Division.
After the Pistons trailed 57-56 at the half, Bing pumped in
15 of his game-high 28 points in the third period, helping the
Pistons into an 88-79 lead at the end of the period. During the
period, Rowe hit for nine points and Lanier six.
Then in the final quarter, Lanier came through with 11
points and the Pistons were able to fight off a late Warrior
comeback. A basket by Rowe with 27 seconds to go put the
game out of reach.

Commissioner Bowie Kuhn declared M o n d a y that the
