Thompson was hampered in his
defensive endeavors with four fouls,
allowing Carroll and forward Walter

Iniaaswings upsetInia
as fouls sink MSU
By United Press International
BLOOMINGTON, Ind.-Wayne Radford drilled 23 points and freshman..
Steve Risley sparked a second-half rally with eight points to lead Indiana to
a 71-66 upset over fifth-ranked Michigan State last night, the Spartans' first
Big Ten basketball loss in eight games.
The Hoosiers, beaten half a dozen times but early-season upsetters of
powerhouse Notre Dame, threw in the first eight points of the second half'
for a 39-34 lead and kept the lead for its third conference win against five-
setbacks and 11-6 overall.
Michigan State, now 15-2 overall, lost three key players on fouls in the
second half-Greg Kelser, Jay Vincent and Bob Chapman. But the Spartans
never gave up and closed to within one point at 63-62 on a pair of field
goals by freshman star Earvin Johnson. Then Hoosiers pulled ahead for
good from the free throw stripe.
Indiana led by as much as eight points in the first half and by seven
in the second stanza. First Radford and then Mike Woodson and Scott Eells.
took turns shooting over the MSU zone. Woodson had 16 points and Eells 13.
Johnson led the Spartans with 21, Vincent had 17 and Ron Charles 13.
Chapman, guarded closely by Woodson, hit only one of nine shots from
the field before fouling out with only seconds left to play.

A's trade goes ka-Blue-y
From Wire Service Reports
NEW YORK-Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn rejected the trade
of Vida Blue to the Cincinnati Reds yesterday but urged the two clubs to
restructure the transition.
The decision, announced by his office after Kuhn had left for Boston,
was precipitated by the $1.75 million that the Reds had paid Oakland owner
Charles O. Finley for Blue, a three time 20-game winner.
Kuhn has placed an informal $400,000 ceiling on the price any team
could pay another club for an additional player. The Reds and A's tried
to skirt that limit when Cincinnati included minor league slugger Dave
Revering in the Blue deal which was announced at baseball's winter meet-
ings in Hawaii last December..
There was an attempt at a compromise that would have sent other Reds
players to Oakland and reduced the cash involved in the transaction. But,
whin that could not be worked out, the commissioner stopped the deal, then
suggested that the two clubs re-negotiate during the' second interleague
trading period that runs from Feb. 15 to March 15.
It marked the second time that Kuhn has refused to allow Finley to move
Blue to another team. Nineteen months ago, the commissioner blocked the
sale of Blue to the New York Yankees for $1.5 million and also disallowed
sales for $1 million each of outfielder Joe Rudi and relief pitcher Rollie
Fingers to Boston.
* * *
Ta-ta to Tito
The Detroit Tigers sold unsigned second baseman Tito Fuentes to the
Montreal Expos for an undisclosed amount of cash yesterday.
The deal was announced after the Tigers traded two minor league
pitchers, Mike Burns and Frank Harris, to the Boston Red Sox in exchange
for reserve second baseman Steve Dillard.
Fuentes led all free agents in hitting last season with a .309 average,
but also committed 26 errors in the field, which combined with his hefty
salary increase request and the presence of future hopeful Sweet Lou
Whitaker made him expendable.
Dillard batted .241 last year as a part-timer and .275 in the same role in
1976.

DEFENSE ALLOWS 23 SERIES GOALS:

Poltent
By PAUL CAMPBELL
To think, Michigan's WCHA season
started back in November with a 10-4
pasting of the Denver Pioneers.
That was back when Denver was a
dark horse at best, and the Wolver-
ines were remembered as the team
that had missed winning the national
championship the previous year by
just one goal.
NOW DENVER is the number two
team in the country, and Michigan
nothing more than a disappointing
enigma.
The new order was confirmed
Saturday and Sunday in Denver,
where the Wolverines swallowed a
double dose of humiliation in falling
to the Pioneers 14-4 and 9-2.
It was the most lopsided series loss
suffered by Michigan all year, and
dispelled hopes that the team's
problems had miraculously fled with
the breaking of a recent seven game
losing streak.
Not so.
YOU MAY recall that defense has
been a sore spot for Michigan. It still
is. The 14 goals scored against the
Wolverines on Saturday were the
most against a Michigan team since

RECORD MILE HIGHLIGHTS RELA YS
Meyer cracks 4-minute barrier,

For part of last week, Michigan track coach Jack
Harvey must have wondered what the blizzard of '78 was
going to do to last Saturday's Michigan Relays. The Relays
have been the seasonal opener for the indoor season for many
years and have usually attracted a wide selection of teams in
competition.
This year's Relays were held as usual, and except for the

"He has taken a lot of time to coach me and I think he is
one of the best coaches in the country," Meyer said.
Meyer wasn't the only Wolverine miler to excell in a meet
that really wasn't much more than a scrimmage. Bill
