Wolverines set to collar feisty
By TIM MAKINEN
Bill Frieder has Georgia on his mind.
But unless something drastic hap-
pens when the Georgia Bulldogs square
off against the Wolverines today at
Crisler Arena, the Michigan coach
shouldn't have too much to worry
THE BULLDOGS, Final Four par-
ticipants just two years ago, could
possibly have some dawg days ahead of
them. Georgia's top two players last
year, Vern Fleming and James Banks,
graduated and another key player,
Gerald Crosby, seriously burned both
legs in a fire this summer and is not yet
up to his usual form.
"I would say in all honesty they're
going to be picked in the middle of the
pack in the SEC (Southeastern Con-
ference)" said Frieder, whose
Wolverines blitzed the Bulldogs, 76-70,
last year in Athens. "They lost Fleming
and Banks and they don't have a lot of
Size is, definitely a shortcoming for
Georgia. David Dunn, a 6-8 sophomore
who transferred from Georgetown, is
the tallest starter on the squad, while
forwards Horace McMillan and
Richard Corhen, 6-5 and 6-6 respec-
tively, may see a lot of armpits as they
battle under the boards against their
taller Michigan opponents.
THE BULLDOG program did receive
some good news when 6-9 high school
sensation Cedric Henderson finally was
admitted to Georgia. The Marietta, Ga.
native had initially made a verbal
commitment to Louisville, but then
signed letters-of-intent with both
Georgia and Carson-Newman, creating
a huge mess along the way.
The bad news for the Bulldogs is that
Henderson does not become eligible to
play until December 7 because of
beat you down the floor for baskets. We
just have to make sure that they're not
doing all the running and us doing all
McMillen and Corhen lead the
Bulldog scoring attack, although junior
guard Donald Hartry paced the field
'They're a lot like Louisville
with the type of quickness and
athletes that they have. But
they're not as big, thank God.'
Still, Georgia plays tenacious defense
and exhibits team speed that could
knock a seemingly superior opponent
like Michigan off balance.
SAID FRIEDER, "They're a lot like
Louisville with the type of quickness
and athletes that they have. But they're
not as big, thank God.
"If you're careless they'll get steals
for baskets and if you're jogging they'll

NBA R OUNDUP:
Bullets shoot up Pistons
with 12 points in Georgia's season-
opening victory over Birmingham
Southern, 59-38, Wednesday night.
CROSBY (9.9 ppg last season) did
come off the bench to play 18 minutes in
the Birmingham Southern contest.
Bulldog coach Hugh Durham also will
likely utilize forward Joe Ward off the
bench, a player whom Frieder
described as "an explosive type who
could get three, four quick baskets on
you in a hurry."
Michigan,'meanwhile, will stick with
the same starting five it employed in
last Monday's season-opening victory
The Wolverine frontcourt of Roy Tar-
pley, Butch Wade and Richard
Rellford shouldn't experience too much
difficulty handling the smaller Georgia
forwards, but it remains to be seen how
well it can perform without Tarpley.
"We weren't really good without
Tarpley in the game," conceded
Frieder. "And we weren't very good the
first five minutes with him in."
PONTIAC (AP) -Gus Williams and
Frank Johnson scored 21 points apiece
last night to carry the Washington
Bullets to a 114-106 victory over the

WASHINGTON, 11-7, seized control
of the game while holding Detroit
scoreless for the first 4:48 of the fourth
quarter. With the Pistons unable to
score, the Bullets ran off eight unan-
swered points to stretch an 83-80 lead to
11 points, 91-80.
Cliff Robinson, who finished with 19
points, scored three during that spurt

The Bullets had grabbed the lead in
the third quarter by scoring 11 consec-
utive points to erase a 72-75 Detroit lead
and build a 76-72 advantage. Johnson
scored five points and Gregg Ballard

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -

of second-quarter spurts that helped the
New Jersey Nets defeat the Indiana
Pacers 123-100 in a National Basketball
Association game last night.
The Nets, who evened their record to
8-8, secured a 66-53 halftime lead in

baskets in a 10-1 spree early in the
second period that turned a one-point
defict into a 44-35 advantage, giving the
Nets a lead they never lost.
Indiana cut the gap to 57-51 late in the
second quarter, but the Nets, who had
seven players in double figures, scored
nine of the last 11 points, including four
by Mike Gminski, to take a 13-point
cushion into the locker room.
Nets guard Michael Ray Richardson
and Pacer reserve forward Bill Garnett
were both ejected from the game for
fighting with 8:10 remaining in the third
period. Richardson had come to the aid
of teammate Mike O'Koren who had
been knocked to the floor as Garnett
was attempting to drive tothesbasket.
Rockets 116, Hawks 102
ATLANTA (AP)-Ralph Sampson
scored 30 points as the Houston Rockets
cruised to a 116-102 victory over the
Atlanta Hawks last night.

for Atlanta, but the Hawks fell steadily
behind after Rodney McCray's dunk
gave Houston a 15-13 lead with 5:10 left
in the first quarter.
HOUSTON'S YOUNG titans of the

Is passive smoking more
than a minor nuisance
or real annoyance?
That's a broad and vague statement being made in a nation-wide, multi-
million dollar campaign by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.
For those who are fortunate not to have a chronic lung or heart disease,
who don't suffer from allergies, or who may not have an acute respiratory
illness that may be true. However, medical evidence is conclusive: passive
smoking is injurious to a large number of individuals - young and old, rich
and poor, and from any ethnic group.

Piston center Bill Laimbeer in the first period of the Bullets' 114-106 victory

Smoking is legal, no question about that.
But who has the right in a public place to
give some innocent bystander what the to-.
bacco industry down plays as a "minor nui-
sance" or "real annoyance".
According to the tobacco industry, smok-
ing is a personal decision made by adults.
Unfortunately the sidestream smoke from a
cigarette, pipe or cigar becomes public, af-
fecting everyone around, and therefore
should be subject to certain rules, controls
and laws to protect people in public places.
If we can have laws to protect us from
outdoor air pollution, why not for indoor
pollution from toxic tobacco smoke?
Icer 's death
MONTREAL (AP)-The death of 18-year-old junior hockey player
Stephane Saint Aubin has prompted his coach to quit and his teammates to
consider following the same course.
Repentigny Olympiques hockey coach Larry Lapointe, who watched in
horror Wednesday as a skate blade cut an artery in Saint Aubin's neck in a
game against Longueil Sieurs, announced yesterday he's quitting the sport.
LAPOINTE has seen two of his players die from hockey-related injuries.
Several years ago a player on a midget team Lapointe coached died after
The tobacco industry complains about nonsmokers: "Total strangers feel
free to abuse us verbally in public without warning." That's usually the re-
sult when someone assaults another, and being forced to breathe another's
tobacco smoke is considered assault.
The majority of Americans are nonsmokers. There's something wrong
with the system when those in the minority can have such a drastic effect
on the majority ...and that's what so often happens when smokers' sides-
tream smoke invades the public air space of nonsmokers.
