Personally, I felt Knight knew he could get away with a
lot on Sunday. He left Benson in with four fouls and 15 min-
utes on the clock.
Knight explained after the game that "with ten minutes left,"
he felt the Hoosiers' only chance was with Benson in. When he
was told there were 15 minutes left, he quipped, "If I had known
that, I probably would have taken him out."
But don't get fooled. Knight is too good of a coach to not
know how many minutes are left and who had four fouls.
It may be pure speculation, but I have to feel that Knight
felt that the chances of the referees calling a fifth against his star
were unlikely . . . at least unlikely enough to leave the big man
in the game.
"He (Benson) has never fouled out of the game," Orr not-
ed, "That's an amazing statistic."
True, Benson does play intelligently with foyr fouls. Nonethe-
less, for someone as physical as Benson, it is amazing.
Forwards lack output
The Wolverines did not blame the loss on the officiating. Orr
looked to his team's inefficiencies.
"We could have been a little more patient," he said. "When
you get behind, you tend to press too much."
"When you're behind, you play differently . . . you are not
as loose." .
Like nearly everyone else looking at the Wolverines this
year, Orr noticed the play of the forwards. "We did not get a
good game out of them at all," he said, "That's one reason we
went to three guards."
The forwards scored a total of 11 points-all four of them
combined. Johnny Robinson, who scored 22 and 20 points in his
two previous outings, turned the bal over eight times, scored two
points and collected one rebound in his 24 minutes on the court.
"The kids played hard," Orr also noticed, "but they shot
poorly in the first part of the second period. We missed those ten
footers and those close shots--oh gosh, did we miss them."
To Orr, that was the story of the game. No matter how the
officials call, no matter who goes ahead first, and no matter how
the bench plays, without the ten footers, you are not going to win
a basketball game.
