Once upon a time the cry that
the Indiana basketball tealn was
in town would send shivers
down the backs of polar bears.
They no longer leap over tall
buildings, not in one bound at
least. That was last year.
The Big Red Machine rolled

all, mark of 10-7 (4-3 Big Ten)
and stand on the brink of elim-
ination from snaring their fifth
consecutive Big Ten title.

Kent Benson, 6-11, 245, will take
his place at center court for the

But Benson, averaging just

bounds per game, is suffering
from a back injury. "He's hav-

Michigan (15-2 overall, 8-1 Big
Ten) realizes that it was
stripped of any cushion it may
have held by losing last Satur-
day in Evanston. The Wolver-
ines also found out that losing a
Big Ten game is not fun.
There is also a little matter
of paying Indiana back, for the
Hoosiers have tripped the Wol-
verines five straight times, dat-
ing back to 1974. Most of the
Michigan players have never
beaten Indiana.

Johannesen views the Minne-

from the night before."

with two spectacular wres-

Evan Johnson at 190. Also,
Minnesota's Pat Neu (134)
finished second in the Big Ten
last year.
McArthur's foe will be Todd
Schneider, who looked tremen-

to face Harold King, who he has
handled easily in the past. Neu
will clash with Rich Lubell, who
Neu dominated last year.

150 pounds, dropped out of
school this year. Last season,
Schandle had a superior deci-

then lost to Churella, 12-9, in
