BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -
Derek Holcomb, the latest bas-
ketball player to leave Indiana
University, says the intensity
of Coach Bobby Knight's pro-
gram "just didn't suit my life-
style like I thought it would."
The 6-foot-11 freshman cen-
ter, who was heir-apparent to
graduating All-American Kent
Benson, will enroll at the Uni-
versity of Illinois next fall,
thus forfeiting an athletic
scholarship.
'I spent a lot of time think-
ing about it, and I'm sure this
is really where I want to go,"
Holcomb said. "Last year, Il-
linois was No. 2, but I felt In-
diaovms something I had to

to leave Indiana since the Hoo-
ers capped an undefeated sea-
o with the NCAA champion-
ship in 1976.

"I don't have any bad things

Holcomb will undergo sur-
gery to repair damaged car-
tilage in his feet.
Indiana and Ilinoi swaged a
recruiting battle a year ago

over Holcomb, who averaged 22
points and 13 rebounds a game
his senior year at Peoria Rich-

Slowed by the foot ailments,
Holcomb averaged 3.9 points in
his freshman season at Indiana,
but he closed the season with a

ance in a 75-69 victory over
Ohio State.
