Statistics

By JON MORELAND
With less then ten minutes left in last
year's Michigan-Michigan State game
at East Lansing, Mike McGee misfires
on a 20-footer and the Spartans' Ron
Charles grabs the rebound, initiating a
fast break layup at the other end of the
court by Terry Donnelly.
The Wolverines still hold a 63-55 lead,
but that advantage is negated because
about 98 per cent of the 10,004 fans
jammed into Jenison Field House are
on their feet, screaming for the
hometown Spartans.
THE MOMENTUM has completely
switched and Michigan watches its lead
vanish in a matter of about three
minutes. The Wolverines are never in
the game again as they suffer an 82-74
defeat that eliminates them from any
NCAA tournament consideration.
The home-court advantage. It's been
part of the American system since the
original home-court upset.
You remember that encounter a few
years back. The undefeated and num-
ber one-ranked Red Coats came in
featuring a lineup spotted with names
like Burgoyne and Cornwallis. They
were heavy favorites to dispose of a
squad comprised mostly of freshmen
and sophomores.

BUT PLAYER-COACH George
Washington led an aroused band of
Patriots in a strong second-half
comeback as the underdogs sent the
highly touted British away with their
first loss of the season.
That struggle of a few years back was

claims Michigan coach Bill Frieder.
Frieder knows his team must improve
on last year's 1-8 road record in the con-
ference if it is going to even think about
contending for the title. -
"LAST YEAR Indiana won all their
home games, and went 4-5 on the road,"
he continued. "That was good enough to
win the conference."
Not much seems to have changed
from a year ago when home teams won
more than 75 per cent of their conferen-
ce games. There's still the two-game
Thursday-Saturday road trips; there's
still the jam-packed arenas in every
Big Ten city from Columbus to Min-
neapolis; and there's still the easily-
influenced trio of zebras that is trying-
often unsuccessfully-to maintain some
semblance of order on the 94-foot strip
surrounded by those screaming
throngs.
"There's nothing tougher in college
basketball than playing Indiana in
Bloomington Thursday night and get-
ting up to go to West Lafayette to play
Purdue on Saturday," said Frieder.
"It's extremely hard to keep the kids up
mentally."
THIS SEASON, Michigan has its
share of those road-trip weeken-
ds-three, to be precise. The team
opens its Big Ten season with a trip to

Purdue and Minnesota, makes a
weekend visit to Northwestern and
Wisconsin later in January, and sojour-
ns to Indiana and Minnesota in one fell
swoop during February.
These six games could very well
determine the Wolverines' fate in the
Big Ten race.
As for the extremely vocal crowds
and their effect on the officials, well,
it's anyone's guess as to how much dif-
ference the zebras can make.
ONE THING is for certain: they do
have an effect on the game, and that ef-
fect is usually not favorable as far as
the visitors are concerned. Coaches are
obviously reluctant to publicly
reprimand the officials in any given
game, but from reading between the
lines of any mentor's comments, it is
pretty safo to say there is not a coach in
the league who doesn't feel the officials
cost his team at least one game last
season.
It's all part of the game, and in the
end, it all ,probably evens out. That's
how the home court advantage has im-
proved in the last few years.
George Washington never had to take
his troops and give the British a remat-
ch on their home field. At least in the
Big Ten, everyone plays everyone else
home and away. -

not nearly as intense-nor did it carry
the drama-that this year's Big Ten

And the home court advantage should
be even more prevalent.

Crisler Arena, the Wolverines' home for the past 13 years, is one of the
nation's finest collegiate all-events buildings. Besides providing a roof for
Michigan basketball, the 13,609-seat arena serves as the home for the
Wolverines' women's basketball team, the wrestling team and both men's
and women's gymnastics teams.
Crisler Arena, named after former football coach and athletic director
Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler, was opened December 2, 1967 with Michigan
losing to Kentucky by a score of 9649.
Since that time, it has hosted such diverse performances as an Olga
Korbut gymnastics exhibition, commencement speeches by Gerald Ford
and Walter Mondale, and concerts by Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen-not
to mention the excitement provided by Wolverine teams of the 1970's.
