Wolverines bust Broncos

By JEFF BERGIDA
Western Michigan has an outstanding
women's volleyball team. Its hockey
team is pretty good, too.
Basketball, however, just ain't the
Broncos' thing.
DESPITE sleepwalking its way-
through the first 23 minutes of non-
action, Michigan trounced the Ponies,
83-59, last night at Crisler Arena. Roy
Tarpley led the way for the Wolverines
with 21 points and 12 rebounds (yawn).
Michigan came out flat in the first
half which allowed the Broncos to stay
in the game. The Wolverines' lead
stayed between five and nine during 20
of the dullest minutes in college basket-
ball history.
After the game, no one on the
Michigan side denied that the team
wasn't really into it.
"WE WERE going through the
motions," said Rich Rellford, who cap-
ped off a nine-point night with a reverse
dunk. "Anytime we go through the
motions, things just don't fall into
place."
"We kind of took it for granted," ad-
ded Antoine Joubert, who established a
career high in assists (11) for the
second straight game.
"I think we got lackadaisical defen-
sively and took some bad shots," of-
fered Michigan coach Bill Frieder.
MICHIGAN'S WEAK effort wasn't
the only thing that made the first half so
dull. There were a number of con-
tributors.
" The crowd: Only 8,439 fans decided
to show up and the student sections
were empty. Apparently, a lot of
Michigan scholars had 20-pagers due
today. Crisler sounded even more like a
morgue than usual.
" The officiating: Jim Bain's crew
made a number of ridiculous calls
against both sides. Both teams were
called for meaningless, sloppy fouls
that did nothing but stop the clock.

" The lack of inside play: Western's
forwards didn't even bother to go inside
against their much taller opponents.
The half became a battle of jump
shooters.
THINGS FINALLY picked up when
Western cut the lead to 38-35 at the 17:22
mark of the second half. The
Wolverines realized that there was a
possibility of losing to a team that was
fortunate to go 4-24 last year. Michigan
ran off 10 straight points and breezed to
its fifth straight win.
The rest of the second half consisted
of seeing how bad the Broncos could
play and finding out if Tarpley would
match his 19.8 scoring average.
Western hit its low point with 12
minutes remaining when the Wolverine
defense conceded a lay-up to back-up
center Mark Gorski. The 6-8 225-pound
Gorski, who had compiled a sterling
seven percent shooting percentage
(one-for-13) thus far this season,
somehow managed to soar above the
rim and miss. The South Bend, Ind.
native did manage to drop in a short one
later in the half to raise his field goal
percentage to 13.
TARPLEY ONLY had 13 points with
4:39 left but put in four foul shots, a
hook, and a slam before Frieder gave
him a rest at the 2:53 mark. Western's
defense just couldn't handle the 6-11
center.
Frieder, Knight
reprimanded
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (AP) - The
Big Ten Conference yesterday
reprimanded basketball coaches
Bill Frieder of Michigan and Bobby
Knight of Indiana for failing to at-
tend recent meetings of league's
basketball coaches, officials said.
In a statement issued from Big
Ten headquarters, the league also
said it has formally asked Knight to
provide information to the conferen-
ce office about his recent remarks
questioning the recruiting practices
of other member institutions.
THE REPRIMANDS were con-
tained in letters to the two coaches
sent after the conference's faculty
representatives and athletic direc-
tors held regular meetings last
week.
Both Frieder and Knight were ab-
sent from the basketball coaches' of-
ficiating clinic Oct. 7.

"Michigan came out in the second
half and took the ball inside really
well," said Western coach Vernon
Payne, whose Broncos are now 3-3.
"Until we get a kid inside who's a
threat, people are going to pack the in-
side and make us shoot jump shots."
The other highlight came during gar-
bage time. With a minute-and-a-half
remaining, reserve center Steve Stoyko
made a great save of a ball heading out
of bounds. Guard Ron Gibas retrieved
the ball and pushed it towards Leslie
Rockymore, who put up a shot that was
going to be two feet short. Rellford
grabbed the ball out of the air and put in
a reserve slam that put the 47
people remaining on their feet.
"I THOUGHT it was going to be
short," said Rellford. "And I hadn't had
a dunk all night so . . ."
Among the more serious highlights

Next week, Burns Park Girl Scouts

was the play of Garde Thompson and
Butch Wade. The 6-1 guard from Grand
Rapids played 23 solid minutes and was
three-for-three from the field, raising
his shooting percentage to 85 percent.
Wade finally got some of his shots to
fall, the 6-8 forward sank six-of-nine at-
tempts.
"I was a little bit more patient," said'
Wade, who also had 11 rebounds. "I just
hope they keep going."
Rob Henderson went down at the
10:02 mark with a bruised knee. His
status is uncertain and when asked on
which play he got hurt Henderson
responded, "It was the one when you
heard me screaming."
If you think that's funny, Western
Michigan plays DePaul next Wed-
nesday.

Women

By MARK KOVINSKY
Although the season is just a few
weeks old, the Michigan women's
basketball team has already matched
last year's victory total.
The women cagers returned home
from the Florida State Tournament in
Tallahassee, Fla. Sunday with a two-
game split and a 4-2 record overall.
"WE'RE VERY, very pleased with
what we did down there," said head
AP Women 's

split in
coach Bud Van De Wege of his team's
76-71 victory over host Florida State
md 71-60 loss to South Alabama.
But Van De Wege does not want his
players to get complacent about their
uick start. "You cannot rest on what
you've done," he said at yesterday's
practice. "I'm happy, but I want
more."
In all, there were four teams in the
tournament this weekend. Michigan
drew the host school, Florida State, the
first night, but the pressure did not get
to the Wolverines as they shot a cool 51
percent from the floor in eliminating
the Seminoles.
SENIOR GUARD Orethia Lilly and
freshman forward Lorea Feldman led
the way with 20 and 14 points respec-
tively. Senior guard Connie Doutt also
chipped in with 14 points in a strong

Florida
performance off the bench.
But the hot-shooting cagers, now hit-
ting at close to 52 percent on the season,
cooled off in the second game on Sun-
day. South Alabama, 24-6 last year and
6-0 this year, used their size advantage
to push the Wolverines outside where
they hit a below average 42 percent
from the field.
"They were much bigger than we
were," said coach Van De Wege. "They
were more like a Big Ten team." Van
De Wege added that Sunday's 71-60 loss
to South Alabama was the first time his
team was outrebounded in six games
this year. It was also the first time the
team failed to shoot 50 percent from the
floor.
Against South Alabama, Lorea
Feldman once again paced the
Wolverines with 14 points.
