Michigan's Melanie Smith swished a 20-footer with
no time remaining last night but it didn't make any
By that time, the Iowa women's basketball team
had finished off A 71-54 victory, its fourth straight and
seventh win in the last nine outings.
THE HAWKEYES' zone-trap defense forced the
Wolverines to take most of their shots from the
perimeter. On the other end Iowa's powerful inside
game, led by 6-4 freshman Lisa Becker, was too much
for the Michigan defense.
Becker topped all scorers with nine of ten shooting
and 21 points, most of those on layups or short jump
"The key was their inside game," said Michigan
coach Gloria Soluk. "We had no inside game.
"When you live and die by the jump shot, you're
going to have trouble," Soluk added.
The Wolverines didn't quite die, but it was close.
They shot a morbid 33 percent from the floor, slightly
less than that in the first half.
The Hawkeyes kept a safe distance between them-
selves and shooting's grim reaper, ending up with 53
percent shooting for the game after a 63 percent floor
performance in the first half. At the end of 20 minutes
Iowa's guards had shot 78 percent.
THEY DIDN'T have much choice. After Becker
tossed in five of the Hawkeyes' first six buckets,
carrying her teammates to a 9-2 initial lead, the cen-
ter from Cedar Rapids, Iowa fell silent. Then with
almost eight minutes left in the first half, Becker
picked up her third personal foul and left the game,
not to return until the second stanza.
Iowa guard Angela Lee said Becker's absense
didn't bother anyone.
"I don't think that affected us any," said the 56--
senior. "Lisa has been in trouble before."
The Hawkeyes were never in trouble. They led by F
as much as 23 points in the first half and by 28, 62-34
through the second.
It could have been worse, though. The Wolverines
actually out-rebounded Iowa, 28-16, in the second'
half, but they still could not prevent their eighth
straight loss in Crisler Arena.
"I thought we were missing rebound oppor-
tunities," said Iowa head coach Vivian Stringer. "My,,,
players had position, but they weren't backing'
Michigan players up."
The loss puts Michigan at 4-21 overall, 2-15 in the
Big Ten, while Iowa moves to 16-10, 10-7.
Wendy Bradetich's 19 points led the Wolverines.

EVANSTON - Michigan State kept its
slim NIT hopes alive last night as the
Spartans pulled away from North-
western midway through the second
half and held on for a 63-55 victory at
MSU's record now stands at 14-13.
The Spartans will finish their season
Sunday at Iowa and coach Jud Heath-
cote believes that a win could put his
team into post season play.
"IT KEEPS OUR chances alive," he
said. "In my opinion, we have to win at
Iowa. Now, I think we're playing for an
Despite Larry Polec's ten first half
points for the Spartans, the Wildcats
held a 28-26 lead at the intermission.
Andre Goode put in an offensive
rebound at the buzzer to put Rich Falk's
club up by two.
But Northwestern could convert only v.
three of thirteen second half free
throws and Spartan guards Scott Skiles
and SamVincent sparked Michigan State
past the overmatched Wildcats.
"When you shoot three of thirteenw
free throws in the second half, you're i.,
trouble. that's been a problem of ours
all year and when it cropped up tonight;,
it kept us from taking charge in the ball
game," said NU coach Falk.

Frieder's team better.. .
... but Raveling gets cheers
BILL FRIEDER drinks a cup of water and fiddles with his towel. He
fidgets in his seat. He throws the towel over his shoulder, waves a
player to the sidelines, gives some instructions, claps his hands a few times
and returns to his seat. After a moment's thought, Frieder downs another cup
of water and goes for the towel.
The fourth-year Michigan basketball coach seems nervous during games.
He sweats a lot. Though Frieder's appearance does not inspire confidence,
the Saginaw native's image may be the reason why Crisler Arena fans
receive him so cooly.
When the public address introduces Frieder at Michigan home games,
about one-half of the crowd claps politely, one-fourth does nothing, and the
remaining quarter shouts and boos.
* As Raveling entered Carver-Hawkeye Arena for pre-game warmups, the
spectators gradually rose to their feet and cheered. No one announced his
arrival. The first-year Hawkeye coach walked onto the court alone. But one-
by-one the 15,450 Iowa followers stood and paid tribute to their team's
leader. The applause grew as Raveling traversed the court. It reached a
crescendo when Raveling shook Frieder's hand.
All of this was for the coach of an eighth-place team that was expected to
The Michigan coach only can dream of such a reception. His team, picked
by most to finish fifth or sixth in the Big Ten, owns fourth place in the con-
ference. It appears destined for the NCAA tournament. Frieder may not
merit a rousing ovation, but he certainly deserves better than the boos he
receives at Crisler.
Wolverine fans cannot be so blind that they do not notice the improvement
in Michigan basketball since Frieder took over for Johnny Orr in 1980. Perh-
aps they do not view Frieder as fitting the mold of Big Ten coaches.
At Indiana, Bobby Knight rants and raves and lectures both players and
At Michigan State, Jud Heathcote stamps his feet and slaps his hairless
forehead with the palms of his hands.
These coaches impress crowds with their volatile natures. Their creden-
tials - both own national championship rings - are impeccable.
Too many people think of Frieder as the tense little guy with no college
coaching experience. They wonder how a man of Frieder's physical stature
ever learned the game of basketball. He obviously did not play at the college
level, as did the physically imposing Knight, Raveling, and Gene Keady of
They wonder too, why Frieder doesn't show more emotion both on the ben-
ch and in front of the television cameras.
Maybe Frieder should appease the Wolverine faithful. He could smile for
the cameras, as do Northwestern's Rich Falk and Illinois' Lou Henson. He
could follow Knight's lead and chastise officials more frequently. He could
lead the fans in cheers, as does Raveling. Or he could race into the stands at
Crisler and shake hands with the students, as he did last year.
Frieder's problem is not one of ability. It is one of image. A little more
flamboyancy and the coach will get the ovation he deserves.
