"In the first seven or eight minutes of
the second half I thought Michigan
came out and was extremely
aggressive, which caused us to make
turnovers," said Wisconsin coach Steve
Yoder. "But we were able to regroup.
Last year we led at halftime in a lot of

MICHIGAN came as close as 55-53
with six minutes left and 63-60 with a
minute to go in the game, but in both in-
stances the Wolverines were unable to
take the lead. Part of the reason was
the Badgers' near-perfect shooting
from the foul line.
In fact, all of Wisconsin's last 16 poin-
ts came on free throws. Olson accoun-

guard Mike Heineman connected for
four to seal the Wolverines' fate.
Nevertheless, Michigan still had its
chances to pull off a victory.
After Olson hit two free throws to put
Wisconsin on top 63-58, Pelekoudas was
called for travelling with 1:11 left in
the game. Pelekoudas stole the ensuing

ONLY AT WISCONSIN does a giant cheese
greet you at the entrance to the basketball
No kidding - a six-foot tall cheddar stood in the
ticket window at Wisconsin Fieldhouse. Not only
that, but a 125-gallon carton of milk - skim, I
believe - strolled through the concourse.
Wisconsin promotes itself as America's
Dairyland, but someone stretched the public
relations a bit too far. There were dozens of
cheeses, a multitude of milks and an assortment of
grapes, cucumbers, ice cream cones and Oscar
Mayer weiners attending yesterday's basketball
game between Michigan and Wisconsin.
The food products were guests of the state's
Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer
Protection. Any person dressed as a Wisconsin
agricultural product was admitted free to the
basketball game. Someone stretched the rules a
bit when he allowed a frankfurter and a pepperoni
pizza into the game. Nonetheless, it was a unique
And they call Don Canham a marketing genius.

Seriously though, it is
ridiculous that the Wisconsin
Athletic Department stages
such an outlandish promotion
to draw crowds to Badger

the most-improved team in
the Big Ten, one certainly;
capable of gaining a post-
season tournament berth, and Buck B d

The Badgers proved it to Michigan State Thur-
sday night, and yesterday the Wolverines learned
Wisconsin played a nearly flawless game while
thrashing Michigan, 71-64.
The Badgers weren't nearly as talented as the
Wolverines, but they capitalized on every bit of
ability. Coach Steve Yoder's team rarely took a
bad shot. It committed just two first-half tur-
novers. Every Badger played within his limits.
Centers John Ploss and Scott Plondke, two born
bricklayers, attempted only four shots between
them. They let Rick Olson, Cory Blackwell and
David Miller handle the shooting chores.
Even sharp-shooting Scott Ross knew what to do
with the ball. Normally a 17-point scorer, Ross
missed his first few shots of the game, spent the
rest of the day passing to Olson.
Nary a wasted feed
The 6-1 guard didn't waste any feeds. Olson sank
14 of 20 field goal attempts on his way to 39 points.
He filled the netfrom every part of the court.
Olson's first six shots read, "Corner; free-throw
line; 15-foot baseline; 20-foot wing; 20-foot; 20-
foot." Even from those distances, every shot came
within the flow of the Wisconsin offense.
The Badgers are well-disciplined. They play
hard. The two Michigan teams won't be their only
victims this year.
"If we keep playing this way here in Madison,
we're certainly going to be a team that the rest of
the conference has to be ready to play," Yoder
And the pumpkins, peas and other Wisconsin
basketball fans might pay to see what happens.
I wonder when Canham will give cars, cherries
and Stroh's cans free tickets to Crisler?

BIG TEN ROUND-UP:
BLOOMINGTON (UPI) - Jim Row-
inski and Mark Atkinson led a 17-point
Purdue scoring streak at the start of the
second half that carried the Boiler-
makers to a 74-66 Big Ten victory
yesterday over Indiana and kept them
in first place in the conference.
Purdue went from a 35-30 halftime
deficit to a 47-35 lead with 14 minutes
left and never led by less than five points
the rest of the game. Rowinski had six
points and Atkinson five in that impor-
"At halftime, he told them we want
to play emotional defense and patient
offense and try to work back into the
game," said Purdue coach Gene
Keady, who won his first game at IU's
Assembly Hall in four tries. "I never
dreamed that it would be that good.
"I'd have to say it's my biggest win,"
said Keady. "When we win at Indiana
it's unusual. We've never won two Big

Iowa, which hit only 5-of-10 free
