Irish beat cagers in wild finish
By LARRY FREED
After watching Notre Dame's basketball and foot-
ball teams finish with a below .506 mark, many
people wondered if the luck of the Irish still existed in
South Bend. But after Sunday's 53-52 squeaker over
Michigan, it was quite clear that the Irish luck was
alive and well.
However, there was little luck involved in the per-
formance of the Irish All-American candidate John
Paxson. The 6-2 guard finished the afternoon with a
career-high 30 points, three assists, seven rebounds,
two steals and one blocked shot. His standout effort
brought raves from both coaches, and the 14,445
gathered at the Pontiac Silverdome.
"HE'LL BE AS good as anybody we've had at
Notre Dame," offered a jubiliant Notre Dame coach
Digger Phelps. "He will be a legitimate first team
Michigan coach Bill Frieder was in total
agreement with his counterpart on the sidelines,
"Paxson is a tremendous player and he hit a great
shot to put them ahead."
That "great shot" by Paxson was a 21-foot fade-
away jumper with 21 seconds left on the clock to put
the Irish up for good. The shot answered Eric Tur-
ner's 15-foot jumper 18 seconds earlier to give
Michigan a short-lived 52-51 lead.
PAXSON'S BUCKET touched off a frenzied final
minute of action that saw some hotly contested calls
by the officials. The first came when official Richard
Weiler had two seconds ticked off the clock, because
he ruled a late start by the timekeeper. The other call
came with six seconds remaining. That is when Tur-
ner was ruled to have dribbled out-of-bounds while
being closely guarded by Paxson. However Turner
had a different version of the episode.
"He was trying to foul me intentionally because
they still had one to give, but we didn't get the call,"
said the 6-3 Flint native, whose 18 points gave him 398
for the season and allowed him to become only the
third Michigan freshman in history to lead the team
But the call went for the Irish and when Ike Per-
son's desperation shot fell short all that was left was
for Frieder to be philosophical.
"IT'S UNFORTUNATE they didn't win the game,"
said Frieder. "I'm not going to blame the officiating,
we had our chances and we let it get away - it's
about as simple as that."
"It was a tough one to lose,especialy the way we
came back," said an emotional Frieder. "They did a
great job to take the lead and we got absolutely no
breaksin the last 11 seconds."
That that shouldn't surprise Frieder and his
Wolverines, as the lack of breaks epitomized the
cagers' season. The one-point loss marked the seven-
th time this year that the hard-luck Wolverines lost
by a basket or less.
The loss also gave the Wolverines a 7-20 overall
season mark, their first 20-loss season since 1959-60.
With the win Notre Dame finished the year with a 10-
17 record, the worst since Phelps' first season in 1971.
But despite their poor season records both coaches
found reason for optimism.
"IT'S BEEN AN interesting season with us not a
making a post-season tournament," said Phelps.
"We have class people at Notre Dame and the guys
have handled it well."
Frieder also had kind words for his young squad,
"This team has done a great job and since they were
1-13, they've been just phenomenal and I
As for the players, Turner best summarized the
"We're already looking forward to next season."

The 1982 NC6A pairings
(The figure before each team is its seeding)
By LARRY FREED
The Wolverine basketball team
finished the season with a 7-20 record,
but you would not have guessed it by the
turnout and warmth of the capacity
crowd at the annual University of
Michigan Basketball Bust last night.
The event, which honored the 1981-82
basketball team and drew a crowd of
I _ARBO_ S
more than 450 people at the Sheraton
University Hotel, also served as a
special tribute to the lone senior on the
squad, Thad Garner. The 6-7 Gary,
Ind. native received many tributes
from his coaches and athletic ad-
ministration personnel, but the biggest
honor for Garner was at the end of: the
evening when coach Bill Frieder awar-
ded him the first annual Thad Garner
leadership award. -
HOWEVER it was not the only award
bestowed upon the four-year perfor-
mer. Earlier he was named the
recipient of the team's Most Valuable
Player award. Other recipients of
awards were Ike Person (best defensive
player), Dan Pelekoudas (top hustler),
and Eric Turner (most improved).
At the conclusion of the evening
following numerous storytelling,
laudatory speeches, and praises for the
"family effort" of this season's team
which endured much adversity, next
year's co--captains Turner and
Pelekoudas, were announced.
But the honors did not end for the
backcourt duo. Earlier in the day, Tur-
ner was announced to the AP second-
team All-Big Ten team, while
Pelekoudas was named to the first
team District Four all-academic team.
