Apparently the Michigan Wolverines
lost more than just a basketball game
when they dropped a triple-overtime
decision to Purdue on Thursday.
That 55-minute marathon also cost
Michigan the endurance it needed in
the last 10 minutes of yesterday's 87-74
loss to Illinois before 12,876 fans and a
regional television audience.
THE TURNING point in the contest
came with almost nine minutes left and
the Wolverines up, 58-56. Richard
r Rellford, off a pass from Eric Turner
made a move toward the basket, but in-
stead of scoring picked up his fifth per-
sonal foul on a charging call. A Derek
Harper layup knotted the score and
Illinois then outscored Michigan, 7-2,
over the next three minutes. The
Wolverines never got closer than six the
rest of the way.
"We played tired and fatigued in the
last 10 minutes," said head coach Bill
Frieder. "We had a four-point lead
with eight minutes left and we let it get
away too easily. They took advantage
of our turnovers and we couldn't get it
During the first 12 minutes of the
second half, the two teams traded the
lead back and forth several times.
During that stretch, Turner, who was
Michigan's high scorer with 25 points,
hit two three-point shots and Dan
Pelekoudas, starting in place of the in-
jured Leslie Rockymore, netted one
also. But Rellford's foul seemed to take
the life out of the Wolverines.
"IT WAS a bad call," said a disap-
pointed Rellford, who was the team's lead-
ing rebounder with five. "I came down
off my shot and, (the referee) called a
charge. I didn't touch-Harper. He did a

Speaking to a group of columnists o
Friday, Reagan said he was "as stub-

certain cuts in domestic programs.
WHITE HOUSE Chief of Staff James
Baker said the president will remain
firm on his defense increases. Reagan
"is not prepared to start bargaining 'n
that figure," Baker said.
Details of other spending plans were
not made available yesterday, but ad-
ministration officials conceded there
would be modest reductions in some
programs for the poor.

Israel, can help reduce the tension and
doubt that surrounds the negotiaions
currently being held in that country.
Al-Hoss said Lebanon's problem and
the Mideast problem are inseparable.
The Arab unrest, he said, has provided
a catalyst to the "ever-festering
domestic problem" in that country.
That problem, he said, may some day
lead Lebanon to become separate mini-
