WILL SAMPSON 'BLOCK' THE WAY TO N.Y.?

Blue face Cavs i quarterfinals

By DAVE JOHNSON
With a pair of tournament victories
under their belt, the Wolverines take to
the road tonight for third round NIT
action against the Virginia Cavaliers at
Virginia's University Hall.
A victory over Virginia (21-10) would
thrust Michigan (17-12) into the semi-
finals to be played early next week in
Madison Square Garden. A defeat
would bring them home-their season
complete.
And though Michigan is playing some
of their best ball of the season, their
chances of getting to New York City
don't look very good; especially with a
4-10 road record. To add fuel to the fire,
Virginia boasts a 12-1 home record,
losing at University Hall only to highly-
ranked Maryland by a basket.

At seven-foot-four, who wouldn't be?
And according to Wolverine assistant
coach Bill Frieder, Sampson's the man
they have to stop.
"The game gets down to how well we
contain him," said Frieder before
Michigan took off for Charlottesville.
"We know he's going to score, but we
can't let him get second and third shots.
"If we limit the number of shots he
takes to 15-18," continued Frieder,
'we'll be all right.''
Although Sampson is touted as the
next Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, his
statisticshaven't yet reflected it.
Averaging 14.2 points/10.9 rebounds per
game, it still took Sampson his first four
games of the season to score the 53
points (Lew Alcindor) scored in his
initial college contest at UCLA. But
according to sixth year Cavalier coach

start the fast break."
The main man in Virginia's
backcourt, and the player who puts the
'gun' in their run-and-gun offense is 6-6
junior Jeff Lamp, the ACC's leading
scorer last year. With the addition of
Sampson's talents Lamp's scoring has
suffered, dropping five points to 17.5
ppg.
Quarterbacking the Cavalier attack
is 6-4 sophomore Jeff Jones (6.7 ppg)-,
the top assist man in the ACC the past
two seasons. In Virginia's 57-55 NIT
victory over Boston College Monday
night, Jones dished off nine assists
while turning the ball over only once in
40 minutes of play.
Although forwards Garland
Jefferson and Terry Gates are
scheduled to start, Holland hopes to
work in 6-5 junior Lee Baker, Virginia's
third leading scorer at 13.5 ppg and 6-6
junior Mike Owens (10.0), both
suffering with physical ailments.
"Lee's been quite sick of late and has
lost a lot of weight," said Holland.
"He's still not at full strength, but he
always gives 100 per cent regardless of

the situation." Owens is suffering with
an ulcer. "It's just wait and see wit
him," concluded Holland.
Michigan on the other hand will start
the same five as they did in their earlier
NIT wins. "We'll play our game," said
Frieder. "We're not going to change
much. We might be able to press and we
might have to zone.
"On offense, the biggest thing is to
not challenge him (Sampson) by
forcing jumpers and letting him come
out of nowhere to block them."
This is only the second time th4
Michigan has faced the Cavaliers; the
first meeting 18 years ago resulted in a
66-52 Wolverine victory. It's also the
first time that Michigan has played an
Atlantic Coast Conference team in nine
years. Their overall record against
ACC teams is 7-9: 3-6 vs. Duke, 2-1 vs.
Maryland, and 1-2 vs. North Carolina
State.
NIT NOTES: Michigan's last NIT
appearance was in 1971 and ended as
the Wolverines dropped a 78-70 decisi
to Georgia Tech after beating Syracus
82-76 in the first round.

Of course the same was said when
Michigan traveled to Marquette earlier
this year. Ranked 16th in the nation at
the time and having an 81 per cent
winning percentage on their own
hardwood in the last 29 years, Michigan
still beat the Warriors. But then, the
Wolverines didn't have a 7-4 center with
which to contend like they will tonight.
Although he is far from a one-man
team, freshman Ralph Sampson is the
dominating force in Virginia's attack.

Terry Holland, Sampson is coming on
strong.
"At first he just blocked shots and
rebounded," said Holland. "He wasn't
aggressive offensively. Now he's more
relaxed and his shots are starting to
drop," added Holland. "He's shooting
55 per cent."
Sampson himself says he doesn't
really worry about scoring. "The most
important thing I can do," said the
freshman giant, "is get the rebound and

St. Peters, one of the best at taking
the air out of the basketball and
Nevada-Las Vegas, one of the best at
putting the basketball in the air, will
battle tonight for a berth in the NIT
semifinals in New York.
UNLV, nicknamed the Runnin'
Rebels because of its pressing, run-and-
gun style, reached NIT's third round by
scoring 93 points against Washington
and 90 against Long Beach State.
"THE KEY for us will be creating a
faster tempo game," said Dominic
Clark, UNLV sports information direc-
tor. "In the past, when teams have tried

to slow it down on us, we've been able to-
run them out of it by pressing."
Murray State, -23-7, has a gaudier
record than Illinois, 20-12, but the Illini
have the advantage of coming out of the
Big Ten wars, plus the home court with
more than 16,000 fans. But Murray
State already has stopped Jacksonville
and Alabama on the road, while Illinois
was beating homestate rivals Loyola-
Chicago and Illinois State at home.
Kevin McHale, the 6-foot-11 center f
the Minnesota Gophers basketba
team, recalls honorable mention All-
America Andrew Toney of South-
western Louisiana as a one-time tem-
mate, and that's good for Coach Jim
Dutcher.
TONEY IS the nation's ninth leading
college scorer with a 26.8 average.
He will be tough for the Gophers to
defense in a zone setup, said McHale,
"because he has so much talent he is a
challenge to anyone." 4
Dutcher said he's been advised "we're
playing a great team."
He said Abe Lemons, Texas coach
whose team lost by one point to the
Cajuns, "told me not to undersell
them."
