I didn't know any whites, really, until I
got up to Michigan. (Detroit) Northwestern
was completely black. Here I might be the
only black in a class. I'm not sure I'm over
that yet. But it's nice to mingle.

Hardy - hopes high
By KATHY HENNEGHAN
Alan Hardy came back to school this
fall hoping to earn a starting spot on
the Michigan basketball team. The gradu-
ation of Wayman Britt left a forward spot
wide open. But things haven't worked out
exactly the way Hardy planned - at least
Hardy fought it out withs Joel Thomp-
son and with his roommate Tom Staton.
The coaches' nod went to Staton.
Did that strain their friendship? "To
tell you the truth, we don't really talk
about it," Hardy replied. "Staton and I
aren't going to let anything like that come
between us. You're always playing against
your friends, so you can't let that bother
"I HAVE TWO PERSONALITIES, real-
ly," said Hardy: "On the floor, it's every
man for himself - no Mr. Nice Guy.
Off the floor, I'm just Alan Hardy."
On the floor, few players can match
Hardy's natural talent. Off the floor, he's
just Mr. Nice Guy. Well-liked by his team-
mates, Hardy has a quick wit and a level
When he's not playing basketball, Har-
dy enjoys spending time with his family,
and is active in his church. Hardy neith-
er smokes nor drinks, and considers him-
self an "oddball" in that respect.
"You don't find too many people like
that, really, especially basketball play-
ers," he said, "but I wasn't brought up
to be that way. I try to leave that stuff
alone. I think I can do without it.
"At home, I try to stay active around
the church," said Hardy. "It's called 'Holi-
ness' Church. I mingle with other -young
people around the church and we have a
ball. And when I'm not doing that I'm
"I OWE A LOT to my brothers. I
have three brothers - well, four, really,
since I get along with my brother-in-law
so well," said Hardy.
"When I was growing up I really didn't
have that much to do around the house,
and they were always going over to the
Y to play ball, so I'd go along.
"My family really gets a kick out of
me playing. .They're always eager to
come up, asking for tickets," Hardy add-
A sophomore out of Detroit Northwest-
ern, Hardy was a unanimous All State
selection in high school and made one
major All America team. As a junior,
he was Most Improved Player in the
Detroit Public School League, and as a
senior he was Most Valuable.
"Ii high school, the work wasn't too
hard," said Hardy, ''the competition came
in sports. You had to wait for your turn
to come arr,"n1, that's for sure. North-
wistera was nice. It didn't have the pret-
tiest girls, but it was nice."
To hear Hardy tell it, he came to
Michigan in a rather roundabout man-
ner. Recruited by former assistant coach
Richard "Bird" Carter, Michigan showed
initial interest in Hardy, but then seen-
ed to back off.
"MICHIGAN HADN'T recruited me for
awhile," said Hardy, "so I looked at
MSU and some of the other Big Ten
Michigan State was hot on the trail
of both Hardy and Greg Kelser from
Henry Ford High School (now starting
at State). Convinced that Michigan had
lost interest, Hardy was on the verge
of signing with the Spartans.
Then, although it was certainly unin-
tentional, Bobby*Knight did the Wolverines
a favor. A phone call from an Indiana
recruiter was enough incentive for Hardy
to turn down the MSU offer. Michigan
came back and finished the job in short
"I was glad to see Michigan come
back," Hardy admitted. "Signing with
Michigan came down to the last minute,
really. It was sort of spur of the mo-

ALAN HARDY is happy about
the dunk rule, not so happy
about not starting, but hopes
to see plenty of playing time
just the same. Hardy was a
crowd favorite at Crisler last
Saturday with three slam dunks
and ten points in the season

Ali in a day's work
NEW YORK - Unbeaten Duane Bobick will meet either
Muhammad Ali or Ken Norton at Madison Square Garden in
February, the AP learned yesterday.
The Garden has called anews conference for Monday to
make "an important" boxing announcement, a spokesman said
The Bobick-Nbrton fight was signed for the Garden in Feb-
ruary, and it was learned that Bobick also has signed to fight
Ali. However, a signed contract does not necessarily mean a
fight will take place.
ALI SAID as recently as Wednesday that he would not fight
again, but most close observers believe he will return to the
Should Ali not be willing to fight again early next year, the
Bobick-Norton fight would go on as originally planned, at the,
Garden in February..
Sources say Norton has agreed to let Bobick out of their con-
tract in order to let him face Ali. In that case Norton would
probably meet Ron Lyle in Las Vegas as part of a closed cir-
cuit TV show.
Woman sues Kingdome
SEATTLE - A woman injured in a mishap during a Seattle
Seahawks football game at the Kingdome has filed a $1 million
claim against the city of Seattle.
Susan Pennock, 28, suffered a fractured vertebra when a
participant in a grandstand fight fell on her. She has been hos-
pitalized since the Nov. 1 mishap and underwent surgery Mon-
day. Doctors said she will be in a body cast for four months.
In her claim filed with the city clerk, Mrs. Pennock charged
that security precautions were inadequate and that excessive
amounts of alcohol were sold to the persons involved in the fight.
