By JEFF BERGIDA
The Indiana Hoosiers had their New
Year's Eve party two nights after
everyone else. The affair was held
January 2 at Crisler Arena and came at
the expense of the Michigan basketball
team.
Bobby Knight's Hoosiers made the
Wolverines, ranked 17th in the nation
going into the contest, look like a high
school team during the 87-62 mismatch.
Michigan suffered its worst defeat at
home since Crisler opened in 1967. In
fact, the last time a Wolverine team lost
a home game by more than 25 points
was in 1953.
THE CAGERS compiled a 4-2 record
over break, including an impressive 87-
82 victory over Ohio State Saturday, but
the Indiana fiasco overshadowed
everything else. Michigan completely
fell apart in the second half.
Indiana held a 43-37 halftime lead but
guard Dan Dakich made a couple of
steals and quick baskets which put IU
up by 10 before the Wolverines knew
what hit them. It went downhill from
there. Hoosier center Uwe Blab had a
career-high 31 points while limiting
Michigan's Roy Tarpley to 12 on four of
15 shooting. Michigan shot a miserable
35 percent as a team and came out for
the next day's practice looking like sur-
$ivors of a nuclear holocaust.
"If you saw them on Thursday (the
day after the Indiana game), you
would've felt that they never could have

won another game," said Michigan
coach Bill Frieder. "All of a sudden you
think 'Oh-oh, we're gonna go 0-18.' "
THE YEAR-OLD feud between
Knight and Frieder apparently ended
when the hysterical Hoosier came out
onto the court and put his opposing
number in a headlock. The crowd of
13,555 appreciated Knight's attempt at
civilized behavior.
The Wolverines came out of their
collective depression on Saturday and
dominated a well-regarded OSU club
for 37 minutes en route to their ninth
victory of the season. Antoine Joubert
looked like the scoring machine he was
at Detroit Southwestern, leading all
scorers with a career-high 27 points.
The sophomore also teamed up with
Gary Grant to contain Buckeye guards
Troy Taylor and Ron Stokes for most of
the contest.
The Wolverines held a comfortable
82-69 lead with 3:14 remaining and a
late run by Ohio State was fruitless.
"CONSIDERING what happened
Wednesday night, we did a great job of
getting our team ready to play a tough
basketball game," Frieder said. "Our
kids responded to everything we did the
last couple of days. They came ready to
play."
Grant, who went to the same high
school as Stokes and Taylor, made his
old friends look bad. The freshman

wound up with 16 points, 10 assists, and
six rebounds while playing 40 minutes.
The starting guards shared a room at
Campus Inn the night before the game
and discussed what they would have to
do to bounce back from the Indiana
debacle. The results of the conference
speak for themselves.
"It was a great game for me because
I'm from Ohio," said Grant, who
graduated from Canton McKinley three
years after Stokes and Taylor.
"Coming off a loss by 25 points, this was
a real confidence builder."
Michigan suffered its first loss of the
season at Tennessee on December 28.
The Wolverines, 8-0 entering the game,
jumped out to a 20-11 lead but were in
foul trouble throughout the game. The
Volunteers were 29 of 34 from the
charity stripe while Michigan was
seven of 11 and fell, 81-77. The loss could
be more accurately attributed to poor
officiating than weak play as the
Wolverines shot 56 percent from the
field and out-rebounded Tennessee, 32-
15. Joubert had 19 points to lead
Michigan while Tarpley and Grant ad-
ded 16 apiece. Volunteer forward
Michael Brooks led all scorers with 20
points.
In other action, Michigan had home
victories over Eastern Michigan (83-
72), Alcorn State (84-81), and Rutgers
(93-77).

It seems that a little irony has crept into Michigan
athletics.
Earlier this year, the Maize and Blue football patrons hid
their heads in shame, as their Wolverines lost four of their
last six games to finish at an unforgivable 6-6.
BUT THE women's basketball faithful, including Head
Coach Bud Van De Wege, are holding their heads high even
though the women cagers dropped four of their six games
over winter break and are also at 6-6. .
"I'm not disappointed," Van De Wege said Monday,
"because we played especially well."
Van De Wege, in his first year at the Michigan helm, is en-
titled to his remarks, since he inherited a team that was 4-22
last year.
"I'M NOT CONCERNED," said Van De Wege, talking
about the 2-4 record over break. "We're a young team and
we're learning a great deal."
The Wolverines, who feature three freshman among their
top six scorers, started the winter break portion of their
schedule on a bad note. They played poorly against Detroit
on December 16 and lost, 63-49.
"The U of D game was the most disappointing," Van De
Wege said. "We did not come to play. It was our worst game
of the year, but that's the only game I'm unhappy about."
THE WOLVERINES turned things around five days later,
when they defeated Toledo, 82-62. Michigan's 20-point
margin of victory thoroughly avenged last year's 19-point
loss to the Rockets.
On December 30, Michigan salvaged a 76-67 victory over
winless Eastern Michigan in the consolation game of the
Domino Classic. The Wolverines lost to a tough Nebraska
team, 64-54, in the first round of their holiday tournament,
but Van De Wege was not upset with the split.

"I was very happy to get one win," he said.
MICHIGAN'S TOUGHEST loss of the year came last
Friday, as it dropped its Big Ten opener. Indiana stopped the
Wolverines in overtime, 69-64, at Bloomington. Despite the
loss, Van De Wege said he was proud of the way his team
battled against the heavily-favored Hoosiers.
The Wolverines also lost at Ohio State on Sunday, 79-51.,
The Buckeyes were 17-1.in the conference last year and are
currently ranked ninth in the country so the defeat was not
surprising.
Michigan probably would have beaten Indiana if forwarq
Wendy Bradetich had had one of her usually strong games.
But Bradetich, the third leading scorer in the conference last
year, scored just six points and grabbed only two rebounds
against the Hoosiers. 4
BRADETICH, in fact, has not played well in her last four
games. She had averaged just eight points, lowering her
season average to 13.1.
Van De Wege explained that Bradetich might be having
trouble adjusting to his style of play. Last year, she was thy
queen of the offense, shooting pretty much when she wanted.
"Our offense doesn't promote shooting the ball," Van De
Wege said. "We promote balance, and she might be having
trouble accepting that new role."
MEANWHILE, OVER in the .other forward spot, Loreq
Feldman is doing just fine. The 6-0 freshman is still sizzlin,
after a hot start. She leads the team in scoring (14.5) and
rebounding (7.2). Feldman is also shooting 58 percent from.
the floor.
Michigan is now 0-2 in the conference, and Van De Wego
said he would like to finish with at least a 6-12 record.
"Anything from there on up would be icing," he said.
The Wolverines will go after their first conference win on
Friday when they meet Illinois at Crisler Arena.

Michigan's Gavin Meyerowitz turned
in his best performance so far this
season in winning the all-around com-
petition at last weekend's Spartan In-
vitational Gymnastic Meet.
Meyerowitz's 54.10 point effort easily
outdistanced the 52.95 total turned in by
second place finisher Keith Pettit of
Michigan State.
The meet was an individual com-
petition so team scores were not
figured. In addition to Michigan and
Michigan State, Western Michigan,
Eastern Michigan and Wisconsin were
represented. Western's Al Scharnes and
Wisconsin's Gary Griffin tied for third
(52.85) and MSU's John Sellis took fifth
place with a score of 52.70.

eighth in the all-around competition
with a score of 50.80. Other strong per-
formances for the Wolverines were tur-
ned in by Nick Lanphier and Mitch
Rose who finished 13th (45.35) and 14th
(43.65), respectively.
Meyerowitz was outstanding in
Saturday's preliminaries, qualifying
for the finals in all six events. The
junior was strongest in the Horizontal
Bar, taking third place with an average
score of 9.30. Meyerowtiz also finished
third in the Still Rings (9.10) and Pom-
mel Horse (8.95). His 9.05 average score
on the Parallel Bars was enough to earn
fourth place. Meyerowitz rounded out
his individual effort by tying teammate
Mitch Rose for fourth place in the Floor
Exercise (8.75).
In addition to his strong showing in
the floor routine, Rose tied Wisconsin's
Griffin for first place on the Horizontal
Bar at 9.40. Rose also contributed a six-

th place finish on the Parallel Bars
(8.60). Other key contributions to the
Wolverine effort were provided by Jon
Ross and Stu Downing. Ross unleashed
the best performance of his career to
overcome the competition on the Still
Rings, enroute to a 9.30 first place
finish. Downing edged out Meyerowiti
for second place on the Pommel Horse
(9.10).
Coach Bob Darden credited his team
success to "a considerable amount of
time and effort in their training." Dar-
den added, "It is just a matter of
building on these performances for the
remainder of the season."
Darden said that the Spartan In-
vitational was important in helping the
team prepare for the coming season.
The Wolverines' next competition is a
co-ed meet against Ohio State at Crisler
Arena on January 26.
