The Pistons' Leon Douglas rams in two points for the

San Antonio.
The Pistons rallied to within tivo points before Larry
Kenon put the game away scoring two baskets with just

Detroit staged the biggest second quarter in the team's
history, scoring 43 points, to overcome a 13-point deficit
and take the lead, 67-61. But the Spurs came back to take
a 97-92 advantage into the final period.
In other NBA action, Bubbles Hawkins scored a career-j

With two strong wins in its
last two outings supplying mo-
mentum, the Michigan women's
basketball team travels to West
Lafayette this weekend to par-
ticipate in the Big Ten Cham-
Although the tournament de-
termines the conference champ,
it does not have any bearing on
invitations to the national tour-
The Wolverines drew a bye in
the first round and will there-
fore meet Indiana in their init-
ial game Friday. The Hoosiers
sport a 6-8 record, but have
managed to cop fourth seed for
the tournament.
F 0 U R O F Indiana's eight
losses have come at the hands
of nationally ranked teams,
while Michigan has not met
any of the nation's top teams.
In contrast to Michigan, In-
diana plays a "controlled of-
fense," with virtually no fast

"We' are an up and down
team," said Hoosier coach Joy
Malchodi. "We're not consist-
ent at all. If we're on, we have
the possibility to win it all."

Big Ten opponent which Indi-
ana has faced this year, and
the Hoosiers were soundly de-
MICHIGAN, WITH a 7-7 re-
cord will attempt to improve
its seventh place finish in the
tournament last year.
"We are looking very good,"
said Wolverine Coach Carmel
Borders. "Our fast break is
working qute well and the re-
bounding is strong. We've had
a good week of practice and
should peak for the tourna-
"Although it doesn't have ant
effect on slots in the national'
tournev the championship does
carry a lot of prestige."
If the Wolverines do get by

Indiana, and into the 3rd
round, they will most likely
play Ohio State, which must
defeat the winner of the Wis-
consin - Purdue match-up to en-
ter the third round.
Ohio State, the top seed in
the tournament, is considered
by Borders to carry a very

strong team.
Michigan's only Big Ten op-
ponents this year have been
Purdue and Michigan State.
Michigan handed the- Boiler-
makers a 62-49 loss but suc-
cumbed to State 63-62. Michigan
State received the number two
ranking in the tournament.

Banks shows interest
Eugene Banks, Philadelphia prep superstar, has said he will
attend Duke next fall, as reported in the Detroit Free Press yes-
terday. Michigan did not avidly fecruit the West Philadelphia
High School stalwart because Wolverines coaches feel they have a
superstar to recruit right next door in Earvin (Magic) Johnson.
Opportunity knox for Hudspeth
William Clay Ford's second choice as head coach of the De-
troit Lions, Tommy Hudspeth, does not really look at himself as
being second best.
"There are only 28 men in those chairs," Hudspeth said, re-
ferring to NFL head coaching positions. "I don't think it's a
comedown for me." '
Hudspeth, who had been Detroit's interim coach since
Rick Forzano resigned after four games last season, agreed
yesterday to a three-year contract as permanent coach.
"I was told there were only two candidates for the job," Hud-
speth said. "I've known all along what has gone on with the ne-
gotiations for Knox. This is a job I wanted very much," con-
cluded .the 45-year-old one-time Brigham Young coach.
Top wrestlers toppled
Michigan's top two wrestlers each suffered narrow defeats to
Western foes in the East-West wrestling meet in Corvallis, Ore-
gon last Monday night.
Senior captain Mark Johnson (177) again faced arch-rival
Chris Campbell of Iowa and again lost, 6-2, in a match Michi-
gan coach Bill Johannesen called closer than the score indicated.
Meanwhile, sophomore 150-pounder Mark Churella fell by a
single point to Arizona State's Roy Oliver. Churella, hanging on
to a 3-3 score with a three-minute riding time advantage, suf-
fered a match-deciding reversal with two seconds remaining.

When someone drinks too-
much and then drives, it's the silence
that kills. Your silence.
It kills your friends, your
relatives, and people you don't even
know. But they're all people you
could save.,
If you knew what to say,
maybe you'd be less quiet. Maybe
fewer people would die.
What you should say is, "I'll
drive you home." Or, "Let me call a
cab."'Or, "Sleep on my couch

Maybe it would keep him awake
long enough to have an accident.
But that's about all.

is to stop him from driving.
Speak up. Don't let silence be
the last sound he hears.
