MSU trouble
EAST LANSING (A')-The
Detroit Free Press reported
today that Michigan State is
considering firing its entire
football staff, including head
coach Denny Stolz in the
wake of an NCAA investiga-
tion into recruiting violations.
The primary source was an
unidentified assistant coach.
1:01 left. Green missed another
shot, but the ball went out of
bounds off of an Indiana player.
Michigan turned the ball over
on the inbounds play and In-
diana gained possession.
Tom Bergen then fouled Ben-
son, who made two free throws
to give the Hoosiers a 70-67
lead. Green fired another jump-
er which fell short of its mark'
and Benson snared the rebound.
Radford scored two free throws
to complete the scoring, 72-67.

"We weren't recognizing what
they were doing at first," said
May. "It bothered us."
Indiana shot 29.5 per cent in
the first half.
The Wolverines led by two,
20-18, with seven minutes left
in the first half. Fifteen seconds
later, Michigan was on top 25-18.
Green scored a free throw, and
back-to-back steals by Grote and
Green on inbounds plays result-
ed in uncontested layups.
GREEN SCORED 15 of his
23 points in the first half, and
Grote 10 of his 16. May and
Benson scored 16 and nine re-
spectively before intermission.
Following halftime, Indiana
slowly chipped away at the
Michigan lead on the strength
of Radford's shooting and excel-
lent team defense.
Radford scored 16 points all
in the second half, continually
dropping jumpers from outside
the range of the Wolverine zone.
The 6-3 sophomore guard hit
six of seven attempts from the
floor and four of four at the foul
line.
"I'VE NEVER had a player
come into a game and do a bet-
ter job than Radford did in this
particular game," said Knight.
"He hit free throws, buckets,

rebounded, did everything we
had to have."
Indiana's pressure defense
held Michigan to 21 points in the
second half. Two consecutive 20
foot jumpers by Radford then
cut Michigan's lead to 58-56 with
3:07 remaining in regulation
play.

Michigan then called time out

Green stole the ball from May,

"We would have won if Grote
had made the free throw," said
Orr.
"ONCE WHEN I was a fresh-
man, I had a chance to win a
game with free throws, and I
blew that too," said Grote. "It
was against Western Michigan,
but we won in triple-overtime."
The win stretches Indiana's
Big Ten lead to two and a half
games, and for all practical
purposes clinches the conference
title for the Hoosiers. Indiana
is 10-0 in league play while the
loss drops second-place Mich-

Neither team shot well for

INNSBRUCK-Sheila Young became the first American
ever towin three medals in the winter Olympics Games,
yesterday.
Adding the bronze medal in the women's 1,000 meter
speed-skating race to her gold at 500 meters and the silver
at 1,500 meters, Young reached a pinnacle never attained
by an American in the 52-year history of the games.
Russia's Tatiana Averina, holder of 12 world speed-
skating records, won the women's 1,000 meter race
ahead of America's Leah Poulos and Young. The silver
medal was Poulos' first of the Games and gave the
Americans a total of five.
In another event Saturday, Helena Takalo of Finland
won the women's five-kilometer cross-country ski race--
the first gold medal of the Games for her country. In the
cross country, luge, the ski jump and bobsledding, the
Americans fared poorly, finishing no higher than 14th in
any event.
The East Germans, won gold medals in the 70 meter
ski jump, the two-man bobsled and men's and women's
luge competition.
After Saturday's competition East Germany and Rus-
sia had won nine of 12 gold medals, and 20 of the 36 med-
als awarded.
In last night's final event, the heavily-favored Russian
duet of Irina Rodnina and Alexander Zaitsev won the gold
medal in Paris' figure skating. Two East German couples
were second and third. But the surprise was the fifth
place finish earned by the young American team of Tai
Babilonia, 15, of Mission Hills, Calif., and Randy Gardner,
17, of Los Angeles.

That big upset .. .
... eludes Blue again
By ANDY GLAZER
BLOOMINGTON
WITH FORTY seconds left in yesterday's Michigan Indiana
game, the Wolverines had the ball and a four point lead.
The end of Indiana's record Big Ten winning streak was immi-
nent with a national television audience looking in.
And then the roof fell in.
With. 33 seconds to go, Phil Hubbard was called for travel-
ing. That does not necessarily mean that he traveled. That just
means he was called for traveling. It is doubtful that Hubbard
had possession of the ball at the time of the call. With 22 sec-
onds to go, the Hoosiers' Quinn Buckner hit on a jumper. One
might normally expect this from the highly publicized Buckner,
but he was zero for eight at the time.
With 14 seconds left, Steve Grote, who was in the pro-
cess of playing his finest game of the year, went to the free
throw line for a one and one that would wrap things up. He
missed.
In the game's final five seconds, the Hoosiers took three
shots. The first two, by Buckner and Jim Crews, missed. The
last one was a tipin by Kent Benson. It came in the general
vicinity of the final buzzer.
"It was the same play as in Illinois," said Michigan coach
Johnny Orr. "There, Johnny Robinson put one up at the buzzer.
But that one didn't count and this one did.
"You can't say anything about it," continued Orr, "It's a
judgement call. It's just a shame that a game like this had to
come down to something like that."
In other words, if any of the four key plays - the travel-
ing violation, the Buckner jumper, the missed free throw
and the tipin - had gone the other way, this would be a
column about the upset of the year. Instead it is merely a
story about what might have been.
The game had repercussions other than in the won-loss col-
umn. Thanks to NBC's presence, the factor of national televi-
sion coverage was introduced.
"I think it was wonderful that the Big Ten got a big game
on national TV," said Orr, "I'm tired of seeing North Carolina
playing Maryland all the time. It was nice to have Indiana-
Michigan on."
Indeed, it was nice for the various Indiana and Michigan
fans around the nation. But the coverage put just that much
more pressure on each ballplayer.
And possibly because of that pressure some national repu-
tations - on both teams - are going to change.
Rickey Green, for one, just about completed a season-
long rise to stardom. The junior guard was merely magnifi-
cent as he scored 23 points, stole numerous passes, and used
his speed to penetrate Indiana's vaunted defense.
Green's partner at guard didn't fare too badly, either. It is
a tribute to Steve Grote that his game was excellen, even con-
sidering his missed free throw. Playing with a cold, Grote scored
16 points and took down several key rebounds.
More important than the offensive statistics for either
Michigan guard was the defense. Quinn Buckner (1-10 shooting)
and Bob Wilkerson (1-8) were more or less humiliated.
Offsetting the strong efforts by Green and Grote was a
tremendous performance by Benson. The big redhead, whom
