Indiana, the nation's number
one ranked team, is undefeated
(9-0 in the Big Ten and 18-C
overall) and holds a game and
a half lead over second-place
Michigan. The Wolverines, 8-2
in the league and 14-4 overall,
lost to Indiana 80-74 in Ann Ar-
bor and were upset at Illinois.
Should Indiana win, the race
for first place will be just
about over. And beating In-
diana in Bloomington is not
an easy thing to do. The
Hoosiers are almost unstop-
pable on their homecourt, win-
ning 52 games while dropning
oni ytwo since Assembly Hall
opened in 1972.
"It's going to be a challenge
down there," says Michigan
coach Johnny Orr, "butI think
we'll give a good accounting of

Today, Michigan will t r y
some different things in the
hopes of coming up with some
different results. The big-
gest change is a switch to a
zone defense. Michigan did
try a zone in the second half
against Indiana at Crisler, but
the Hoosiers shot right over
it and into a big lead.
BrtiMichigan had only one'
practice session to prepare for
that game, and had not worked
on the zone. This past week, the
Wolverines worked every day on
the 1-2-2 zone, and plan to use
it whenever they miss a shot
and Indiana gets the rebound.
Zone defenses have made a few
of the Hoosiers' wins close.
When Michigan makes a bas-
ket, the Wolverines will press,
man-to-man. The other new tac-
tic is to try the fastbreak after
each Indiana basket, instead ofI

bringing the ball upcourt slow-
Orr hopes the zone will help
contain Benson by allowing
other players to sag quickly
and help Hubbard guard the
big redhead. It will also make
it harder to get the ball to
Benson in the first place.
Michigan also worked hard on
rebounding this week. Indiana
scored its first seven baskets
on second and third attempts
last month at Crisler. And the
short-lived zone that day let the
Hoosiers hit the boards too eas-
ily. Strong rebounding is also
essential to Michigan's b e s t
weapon, the fast break.
The Hoosiers may seem as
though they are too much for the
Wolverines. They have the na-
tion's best record, are rank-
ed number one, and are playing
in familiar surroundings. Mich-
igan needs to establish a f a s t
tempo, and stay out of f o u 1
trouble. And if the Wolverines
do that, come up with a few
breaks or some exceptional per-
formances, they could pull off
the upset of the year.
The Hoosiers have not lost a

regular season game in two
years, and they have won 28
straight conference games.
"Our big problem is that we
are not a big team - Indiana is
a big, strong team," said Orr.
"(Tom) Abernathy, (Scott) May,
and Benson comprise an awe-
some front line."
"We have to contain the
boards a little better," said Orr.
"We can't give them the second
attempts that they got in Ann

Arbor. And we have got to play
better defense so they don't
score every time down. They
made 19 of their last 25 shots."
"I think out best bet is to get
the ball off the boards and get
down the floor as quickly as we
can," Orr said, "before Indiana
has a chance to set up its de-
"If we can do that, I think we
have a chance. If we don't it's
gonna be a long afternoon."
