Blue cagers whip Bucks.
Michigan looks NCAA-bound...
:..Buckeyes headed for Big Apple?
Notes, quotes and thoughts coming down the stretch of
the Big Ten schedule.
. Michigan is in good shape for an NCAA bid. Two home wins and a victory
at Northwestern would put the team at 18-10, probably fourth in the league.
Four straight make the Wolverines a sure thing.
" By losing to Michigan Saturday night, Ohio State put itself in a tough
position. The Buckeyes finish at Illinois, Purdue and Indiana, three teams
they couldn't beat at home.
" The Columbus writers entered the press room after the game singing
"New York, New York," a reference to the NIT, the tournament for which
the Buckeyes seem destined.
h Lotsofkpeople say that Purdue would be the worst team ever to win a Big
Ten title. The Boilermakers are just proving that team play is more impor-
tant than individual talent.
" No one can figure this league out. Ohio State murders Michigan State
Wednesday. Indiana does the same to Michigan the next night. Then, over
the weekend, the Wolverines beat the Bucks while the Spartans shock the
Hoosiers in Bloomington. .
" One writer's opinion on the 1984 All-Big Ten team: center Jim Rowinski
of Purdue, Wisconsin's forward Cory Blackwell and guard Rick Olson, OSU
forward Tony Campbell and Steve Alford, Indiana's great freshman point
" Where's Eric Turner? Right now, he's on the second team along with
teammate Roy Tarpley.
" Speaking of Tarpley, the big guy is on the road to stardom and his coach
knows it. "If he does what I tell him to do he's going to be a great player,"
said Bill Frieder after the OSU game. "He's got to get 25 pounds added..he's
got to get much tougher on his defense."
g Big Ten player of the year? Rowinski. Coach of the year? Purdue's Gene
Keady by a landslide.
* Keady on Rowinski: "I don't think Jimmy feels any pressure. He's been
through it all now. Anything he gets is gold because he never had anything to
start with. How much more can a walk-on ask? He's got to be the basketball
story of the country."
* Granted, Tim McCormick looks slow and unsure of himself at times but
Michigan is a much better team when he's on the floor.
The return of the Rock'
" The Rock is back. Junior guard Leslie Rockymore shot 75 percent on the
last road trip after sitting out two straight. "It felt great," said Rockymore
after the OSU win. "It's been tight for a few games and the main thing was
getting in and getting to play." Said Frieder, "He's done a great job working
hard instead of sulking or pouting."
" Austin Carr's commentary on SportsView's Michigan telecasts brings
back memories of Bill Russell, formerly (and withgood reason) of CBS.
" The Frieder-Knight rematch was quiet. The mouth of Bloomington didn't
bring up the events of January's clash at Crisler. It would've been like rub-
bing Frieder's face into the ground after the pounding his Hoosiers gave
t4 The Wolverines got clobbered once again at Assembly Hall. Over the
- past three years Indiana has won by margins of 15, 30, and 15 points. Much of
the credit must go to the IU fans who demonstrate both spirit and knowledge.
" But take heart, Crisler faithful. The fans at St. John Arena in Columbus
°aren't a whole lot better than you. There's one small section of extremely
vocal students and thousands of people whose college days are long behind
them. Sound familiar?,
. Sitting right behind the Michigan bench at St. John, one could hear the
-Michigan coaching staff constantly shouting at Antoine Joubert while he was
on the court. Obviously, a freshman guard needs a lot of guidance but give
the guy a break. If he can't handle himself out there, don't play him.
OSU's Campbell played his last regular season home game Saturday
night. The crowd gave him a lengthy standing ovation before the game but
the Wolverines spoiled his finale. Campbell is a class act. Despite his 19-
point effort, he placed some of the blame for the loss on his own head. "I
myself had a free throw that would have tied it," the forward said. "I didn't
" If Michigan is looking for the area in which the most improvement is
needed, it would be foul shooting. The Wolverines are hitting only 68.8 per-
cent from the line. Look at some individual numbers: McCormick, 64 per-
cent; Joubert, 67 percent; Wade, 31 percent. The team has been outscored by
=Y67 points from the stripe this season. You're not going to win many close
games with those numbers.
" Frieder quote of the year: "Going into conference play we're (Big Ten
teams are) always (up there) with everybody. But we can't schedule four
games in the middle of the season with Monmouth, Ryder, Citadel and Fur-
man...If you look at what our teams did (in non-conference play. Illinois
State is rated, Indiana beat them. Boston College was rated, Indiana beat
them. We beat Georgia...Dayton might get a bid. We beat Dayton without
Eric Turner, by 25 points. Ohio State beat Maryland. You can go on and on."
" The Minnesota game Saturday will be Dan Pelekoudas' last home game.
Don't boo him.

"Normally when you get your ass
beat in Bloomington, Indiana on Thur-
sday you lose wherever you go on
Saturday," said Michigan coach Bill
Frieder Saturday night following the
Wolverines' 62-59 victory at Columbus.
''It's tough to recover.'"
But recover they did, led by Roy Tar-
pley whose season-high 24 points
sparked Michigan in its seventh Big
THE 6-10 CENTER was a scoring
machine in the first half, making nine
of 12 shots for 18 points. Tarpley also
had six rebounds before halftime and

Eldon Miller's club came out flying in
the second half and ran off a 9-2 streak

Rockymore sparked a rally, con-
tributing a baseline jumper, a six-
footer and an assist on a Tarpley goal
that put the Wolverinestahead to stay.
IT WASN'T EASY to hold off Ohio
State, however. The lead never ex-
ceeded six points as Michigan missed
seven free throws down the stretch.
OSU had several chances to pull even
but fell short each time.
Eric Turner finished with 12 points,
including a perfect eight-for-eight from
the line. Despite the low point total, the
co-captain was a settling force all night and
was pleased with his effort.
"I didn't shoot well tonight but my job
is to run the team," said Turner. "I did
come up with some crucial free throws
at the end though."
Indiana 72, Michigan 57
At Indiana, tough defense powered
the Hoosiers to a 72-57 victory over the
Wolverines. Indiana's tight, man-to-
man rattled Michigan into 36-percent
Turner missed all seven of his first-
half shots. He finished four-for-16.
Tarpley hit only two of nine shots from
the floor. Several Wolverines shot air-

Wolverines a lead then cost them the
game however, as Rich Rellford fouled
Reid off the inbounds pass. The 5-9
guard completed a one-and-one to finish
with 18 points. Turner missed a long
jumper with eight seconds left and
Purdue had another big win.
Boilermaker coach Gene Keady was
ecstatic after the game. "It's just a
situation where our kids came through
in the clutch," said the man who is now
8-0 against the Wolverines. "I'm glad
we got Michigan out of the way because
they're going to beat a lot of people."
Rowinski was the game's high scorer
with 22. Roy Tarpley had 19 points for
...14 points for Hoosiers
Purdue 67, Michigan 64
The Boilermakers made 29 out of 33
free throw attempts, including 12 in
overtime, as Jim Rowinski and Steve
Reid led Purdue to a 67-64 victory at
Crisler Arena, February 18.
Although Michigan outshot Purdue
by a large margin, the Wolverines could
not pull away. Michigan guards com-
mitted 14 turnovers while the Boiler-
maker backcourt threw away only five.

held the ball the final three minutes of
regulation time for one last shot but
Turner passed off to Antoine Joubert,
who missed at the buzzer.
In the overtime, Purdue controlled
the tap and ran off to a three-point lead.

Last-minute field goal
lifts Panthers over Blitz

PONTIAC - It was the beginning of a
different season for the USFL but the
defending champion Panthers looked
Michigan rode a balanced attack,
steady defense and a 19-yard field goal
by Novo Bojovic on the last play of the
game to gain a 20-18 victory over the
Chicago Blitz last night in its season
opener at the Silverdome.
THE PANTHERS took over at their
own 33 with 2:32 remaining after a 13
yard punt return by Anthony Carter.
They then marched down to the
Chicago two in eight plays, the key
being a 28-yard pass to Ken Lacy to
begin the drive.
Chicago got the lead midway through
the fourth quarter when Jim Stone
blocked a David Greenwood punt and
the Blitz's Keith MaGee blew an easy
touchdown by kicking the ball out of the
end zone for a safety.
The two teams scored on the first four
possessions of the game, the second
Panther touchdown being a 12-yard toss
from Bobby Hebert to Carter. The wide
receiver from Michigan caught seven.
passes for 108 yards in the contest.
CHICAGO TOOK A 16-14 lead late in
the second quarter but missed the extra
point after a high snap, Bojovic then
kicked a field goal to put the Panthers
in the lead at the half.
Lacy was the offensive star for
Michigan with 98 yards rushing on 16
attempts and 58 yards receiving.
Hebert, despite missing the first weeks
of training camp, was sharp, com-
pleting 20 out of 34 passes for 296 yards
and no interceptions.

thusiastic crowd of 22,428 witnessed the
