Michigan probably won't be too in-
timidated when its opponent takes the
floor tonight at Crisler Arena.
Youngstown State's tallest starter
stands 6-7. The school's 4-0 record has
been compiled against the likes of the
Alabama State Hornets and the rugged
Wooster (Ohio) Fighting Scots, a club
that is certain to be up there with
Georgetown and St. John's at the end of
the season. On top of that,
Youngstown's nickname is the
HOW DO you get psyched to play a
bunch of guys who wear the name of a
hockey team on their jerseys?
"We shouldn't have trouble
motivating because we've got so far to
go," said Michigan coach Bill Frieder,
who has been less than thrilled with his
club's performance in its two victories
thus far. "We've got so much im-
proving to do."
On paper, it doesn't look like the
Wolverines will have to improve much
to win tonight. Youngstown State
assistant coach Bill Dailey explained
what his club has to gain by going on the
road to play more-talented teams.
"THE WINNER of our conference
(Ohio Valley) goes to the NCAA tour-
nament," said Dailey, whose club will
travel to nationally-regarded Alabama
and Tulsa later this month. "If we go
into the tournament, we're going to ha-
ve to play teams the caliber of
Michigan and we think it's a good test
before our conference season gets un-
derway in January.
"Since it's only our fourth year in-
'M' size should tie up
tiny Youngstown State
Division I, we have a very tough time
scheduling good Division I teams at
home. So, until we establish a better
reputation, we're going to have to play
the top caliber teams on the road, which
The Penguins got a taste of life in the
Big Ten last year when they travelled to
West Lafayette and were stopped by
Purdue, 65-54. Youngstown held a
three-point lead at halftime, however,
and held Big Ten Player-of-the Year
Jim Rowinski to three field goals in 16
GONE FROM the team that shut
down Rowinski is 7-1 center Ricky Tun-
stall, the defensive star of last year's
18-11 squad, which finished third in the
conference. This year's team has no
size at all and Dailey laughed when
asked how his team planned to stop
Michigan's 6-11 scoring machine, Roy
"We haven't played anyone that big
this year," he said. "We're obviously
going to have to get a lot of weakside
"It's going to be a difficult task,
that's for sure."
YOUNGSTOWN'S best player is 6-7
forward Ray Robinson, who averaged
12.4 points and 4.8 rebounds last year.
"He's on some pro stat sheets as a
possible candidate," said Michigan
assistant Dave Hammer, who scouted
Point guard Bruce Timko was MVP
of the UNI-Dome Classic played last
weekend in Cedar Falls, Iowa, which
the Penguins won by defeating
Alabama State, 81-55, and host Nor-
thern Iowa, 70-57.
"Timko's very intelligent, on and off
the court," Dailey said. "He's the team
MIKE RICE is in his third season as
head coach at Youngstown. After four
years as the head man at Duquesne, in
Pittsburgh, Rice has compiled a 36-23
mark since crossing the state line in
The key to this game' will be
Youngstown State's lack of height. The
Penguins will try to run and play
pressure defense the way Georgia dia
Saturday. Ultimately, however,
Michigan's inside strength should
"If we can stop Robinson around the
basket and if we get the ball down the
floor and get it inside," said Hammer,
"I think we can have a lot of success.
"They are small."
CAGE NOTES: Frieder evaluated
the play thus far of a few of his more
Antoine Joubert: "In both of
our wins, he's done a lot of good things,
especially when we've needed him.
He's made a lot of big plays already this
Rich Relford: "Rellford's just got to
get in better condition. He isn't in tip-
top shape and you can't play this game
if you aren't in shape."
Garde Thompson: "Garde has to im-
prove defensively and eliminate
careless turnovers. He's capable of
giving us good offepse because he's got
quickness and knows the game and can
shoot the basketball."

quarter last night to lead the Detroit
Pistons to a 104-99 victory over Boston,
}sending the Celtics to only their second
National Basketball Association defeat
*of the season.

ning streak and left the Celtics 15-2, but
still in first place in the Atlantic
Division while Detroit climbed a game
:over .500 at 10-9 in the Central Division.
BOTH TEAMS, employing tough,

;entire game. Boston led 49-46 at half-
time and opened up a 57-48 lead early in
;the third quarter before Thomas and
Vinnie Johnson began bringing the
A slam by Earl Cureton gave Detroit

good, 100-99, with a short jumper in the
lane with 2:38 remaining and Thomas

ter a Larry Bird miss at the Boston end
of the floor.

points in the fourth quarter, also led a
New York defense that limited Denver,

points in the final period.
