ALL SET FOR INDIANA
I I 1
. . for Saturday's game
By KATHY HENNEGHANl
1ICHIGAN COACH JOHNNY ORR never mentioned Indiana
once while preparing his team to face Wisconsin. But the
awesome Hoosiers have undoubtedly been in everyone's mind.
"The best way to prepare for Indiana," Michigan assistant
Bill Frieder commented earlier in the week, "is to beat Wis-
And that is just what the Wolverines did here last night.
Any win against the physical Badgers would have im-
proved the outlook for tomorrow's clash with top-ranked In-
diana, but this 106-81 rout was especially encouraging.
The Wolverines could not capitalize on the fast break as they
had in recent games, but in the end it didn't seem to matter.
When the break was not there, the team set up and ran .its of-
fense as well as it has all season.
"We thought we'd have a tough game," said Orr. "I was
very surprised that we pulled away from them like we did."
The Wolverines worked for the good shots, hitting a percent-
age of 58.6 for the night.
"Michigan was just awesome," said Wisconsin coach John
Powless. "They shot so extremely well that it was very hard for
us to get them."
Freshman center Phil Hubbard continued to play with ex-
ceptional poise and scored 18 points and seven rebounds for the
night. Joel Thompson, in a reserve role, matched Hubbard's sta-
The Michigan front line of Hubbard, John Robinson and
Wayman Britt held its own against the husky Badgers. The
Wolverines will again be outsized by Indiana.
"Saturday it will be the big physical brutes against the quick
ones," said Powless.
Fouls came thick and fast in the game. Britt was the first
victim, fouling out with 7:13 left in the game. Hubbard joined
him on the bench less than a minute later.
Two other Michigan starters, Robinson and Steve Grote, were
playing with four fouls apiece in the closing minutes of the con-
"I thought we were going to go with three players there for
awhile," Orr joked.
But the Michigan bench more than ever proved to be a
major asset. Orr substituted freely and was able to use all ten!
members of the traveling squad to spell the starters.
That could very well be the crucial factor in the Indiana
game. Orr has said time and time again that there is more
talent on this Michigan team than there has been at any one
time since he has been here.
And the players appreciate that fact.
"The guys on the bench can do the job just as well as the
starters," said Robinson, "It really takes the pressure off of
everybody. You don't have to worry so much about commit-j
ting that fifth foul when you know you have someone behind you.
"We have a lot of depth. That's what's good about this team.
You don't have to worry about getting tired."j
That's just as well. "We played three games in the last
five nights," Orr lamented, "But what can I do. I'm just a bas-
ketball coach. We have to play the schedule."
The Wolverines who have less than 24 hours to prepare
for the game. Indiana has not played since Monday night. In
fact, the Hoosiers will arrive in Ann Arbor today before theI
Michigan team returns from Madison.
Joel Thompson, who had a career high of 18 points last
night said, "It might be better if we had a couple of days to pre-
pare, but I do think we're ready for them."y
"That's right. We play Indiana Saturday," quipped Grote,
"I almost forgot."
All things considered, it seems the win last night can only
help the team going into tomorrow's game.
"It ain't going to hurt us any," admitted Orr, "But then Wis-
consin's not the number one team in the nation."

consin fell to 9-3 on the season
and 2-1 in league play.
The game was Michigan's
third in five days, with the
schedule showing Indiana to-
morrow and Ohio State Monday,
both in Ann Arbor.
"That's the toughest schedule
since I've been at Michigan,"
Orr complained. However, if the
Wolverines come out of the five
game stretch without a loss, Orr
will be crying tears of joy.
