Youngstown State came up with a
brilliant new strategy last night for
defensing bigger, more talented teams
- foul everyone in sight and hope they
miss the free throws.
Unfortunately for coach Mike Rice
and his Penguins, Michigan converted
31 of 39 attempts from the charity
stripe, and clobbered the visitors from
Ohio, 103-73.
YOUNGSTOWN committed 28 fouls
in the contest. Its two tallest players, 6-
7 forward Ray Robinson and 6-7 center
Troy Williams, were in foul trouble
from the outset and both were gone with
eight minutes left in the rout. Rice knew
going in that Michigan held all the car-
ds and was just hoping for a lot of luck.
"I thought if they had any
weaknesses at all, it was the outside
shooting," said Rice, who saw his team
suffer its first defeat against four vic-
tories. "So we were going to sit back
and really let them beat us from the
outside."
Michigan's outside shooting was
anything but weak. The Wolverines
made 55 percent of their field goal at-
tempts in the first half and finished at
53 percent. Led by the outstanding play
of freshman guard Gary Grant,
Michigan jumped out to 17-5 advantage,
stretched the lead to 15 at the half, and
blew away the hapless Penguins in the
second stanza.

show. The colorful point guard finished
with 19 points, six assists and five
steals. The Canton, Ohio native was hot
from the outset, scoring four of
Michigan's first eight points.
But it was in the second half that he
really shined.
Grant put in a 15-foot jumper at the
16-minute mark to put the Wolverines
up, 59-38. He followed that up with a
quick steal and another jumper to
stretch the lead to 23.
The freshman credited assistant
coach Steve Fisher for the success he
had in guarding Youngstown point
guard Bruce Timko.
"COACH Fisher told me to make him
go right because he's left-handed," said
the 19-year-old, whose friends call him
"The General." "So I did that and he
couldn't dribble that good with his right
hand. Everytime he tried to switch
over, I was there to put pressure on him
and tip the ball away.''
Later in the half, Grant followed up
yet another steal with a Michael Jor-
dan-patented dunk. He then forced a
turnover on Youngstown's next
possession to earn a standing ovation
from the sparse crowd of 8,387.
"Gary Grant showed me a great
deal," praised Rice. "He's going to be a
major league guard, no doubt about it."

we nee.
"Personally, this showed that I can
shoot and I can play defense," under-
stated Grant.
The lack of opposition provided
Frieder with an opportunity to look at
his reserves. Michigan's "other"
freshman, center Steve Stoyko, saw 14
minutes of playing time and became an
instant crowd favorite by diving after
loose balls and hustling all over the
court. At one point, the 6-9 Stoyko lan-
ded in the woodwind section of the
band.
"I THOUGHT this was a good oppor-
tunity for me," said the Bay Village,
Ohio native, who wound up with six poi-
nts and three boards. "Maybe I hustled
too much and made a few bad fouls but
I played intensely and aggressively."
Youngstown State, which is con-
sidered a power in the Ohio Valley con-
ference, couldn't do anything at all.
Rice placed some of the blame on the
officiating.
"Our whole (strategy) was box out,
box out, box out," he said. "And I really
think that (with) one referee, the game
has past him by as far as boxing out. He
called four boxing out (fouls against
Youngstown) and that's what took the
big guys out of the game."
FRIEDER knew he would have to an-
swer to the critics for scheduling an op-
