Gary Grant, shining like never before

both ends of the court before yielding
possession to Iowa with 1:34 to play.

... defensive star ... hits some clutch shots

T HE CHALK talk ends in the Iowa basketball team's
"Any questions?" asks Hawkeye head man George
"YEAH COACH," says a player from the back of the
room. "Could you explain the difference between the din-
ner fork and the salad fork again?"
The above scene never happened, but the ,Hawkeyes
came within one of Emily Post's well-groomed hairs of
receiving a seven-course menu of social training to sup-
plement their normal instructional diet.
Iowa had planned to give its players seven two-hour
seminars teaching them things like how to deal with the
media and how to act properly in restaurants, hotels and
airports. The only thing that prevented the Hawkeyes
(saved would be a better word) from holding the social
classes was an NCAA rule that
_- says athletes can receive no
privilege or service not of-
fered to all students.
What didn't seem to occur to
whoever decided to hold the
seminars is that in one sense
they would have been
somewhat demeaning to the
athletes involved, and in
another sense would have
been a misuse of time and
The demeaning part is the
idea of implying to a college
student that he's such an un-
Rareling cultured hick that he needs
etiquette training. Iowa would
have been saying to its
players, "Sure, we respect you abilities on the court, but
other than that we'll treat you like little kids."
And the Hawkeyes don't act like pre-schoolers, at least
not the ones I've met. But I've only met a couple, so I
asked some other writers, and they agreed that Iowa's
basketball players indeed act like adults with reasonable
Still, none of us knows whether the Hawkeyes slurp their
soup or loosen the caps on salth shakers, so I checked it

out with the folks who served them breakfast yesterday.
"They were calm," said Greta Jackson, hostess at the
Briarwood Hilton's restaurant. "They -weren't rowdy like
I would expect a basketball team to be. They handled
themselves just like the average (person from the)
"I didn't see anything," said waiter Chris Dansel. "If
something would have stuck out, I would have noticed."
Dansel did notice that the players tipped "about
average" and avoided junk food. All that without etiquette
The other part of the seminars' focus was to show the
players "how to look good in an interview session," ac-
cording to Kris Hofacker, director of communication
development for the consulting firm which was to teach
"If you get out in this area, the college team is all that's
happening in sports," said Hofacker, who holds a Ph.D.
from Michigan's communication school. "They're very
"If you're 18 years old and dealing with the media,
that's a hard job for someone who hasn't had professional
experience or very much life experience," she added.
Point taken. But seminars from a consulting firm are
not necessarily the vehicle through which players should
be getting that experience. As members of a big-name
basketball team, they are performers, but they're also
students. If they can talk about literature in an English
class, then they ought to be able to discuss a basketball
game. If they can't, then Iowa is working on the wrong
The best way to keep an athlete from seeming like a
dumb jock is to make sure he or she isn't dumb. The
money the Hawkeyes might have forked over to the con-
sultants could probably pay for some additional academic
counseling or tutoring, and the time they would have spent
in the seminars could have been devoted to additional
The program actually could have done the players a
disservice if it allowed them to improve their images,
rather than simply growing as students and human
Maybe, having avoided the seminars, they should sim-
ply tap into the manners they already possess and say,

BIG TEN ROUNDUP:
Bucks nip IU, 86-84
COLUMBUS (AP) - Uwe Blab
missed a short hook shot with two
seconds left yesterday for eighth-
ranked Indiana, helping Ohio State
spring an 86-84 Big Ten basketball vic-
tory over the Hoosiers.
Blab, who scored a game-high 31
points, took a pass from Stew Robinson,
wheeled and fired. His shot bounced off
the rim and time expired before In-
diana could get off another attempt.
TROY TAYLOR MISSED the front
end of a bonus free throw situation to
give the Hoosiers a shot at forcing over-
time. Instead, Indiana dropped to 11-4
overall and 3-2 in the Big Ten.
Dave Jones, a reserve guard, came
off the bench to sink eight of 10 shots
from the floor and score a team-leading
19 points for Ohio State, 11-3 overall and
3-2 in the conference.
The Buckeyes, scoring the most poin-
ts on Indiana this winter, almost blew
an 11-point lead with 11:51 remaining.
The Hoosiers crept to within 76-75 on
Blab's hook shot with 3:08 to play.
Joe Concheck, regaining his starting
forward job, scored 16 points for Ohio
State while Dennis Hopson had 15,
Taylor 14 and Ronnie Stokes 10.
EVANSTON (AP)-Anthony Welch
scored 16 points and Efrem Winters ad-
ded 14 yesterday to lead 11th-ranked
Illinois to a 55-43 victory over North-

for the Illini as they increased their
record to 15-4 overall and 4-2 in the Big
Ten. Northwestern lost its fifth straight
and fell to 4-11 overall and 0-5 in the
NORTHWESTERN HELD several
four-point leads in the first half, the last
at 14-10 before the Illini ran off 10
straight for a 20-14 advantage which
they never relinquished.

Steve Reid and Todd Mitchell led Pur-
due back from a nine-point second-half
deficit yesterday as the Boilermakers

Bullock scored 20 points, including a
three-point play that tied the game at
53-53 with 7:15 to play-just 2:09 after
Wisconsin had built a 53-44 lead, its
biggest lead of the game.
REID SCORED 15 points, including
the last three in Purdue's 12-0 run that
gave the Boilermakers the lead for
good at 56-53 with 6:49 to play.
Included in the string was a technical
foul on Wisconsin's Rick Olson, who
scored 16 of his 18 points in the second
Mitchell, who had 13 points, then
scored Purdue's next eight points and
Purdue never looked back.

Michigan thinclads bare the cold,
By DAVE ARETHA
The only scantily dressed Michigan:
students who were smiling last night
were the members of the Wolverine
track team. The thinclads performed
surprisingly well in the Michigan
Relays yesterday, winning two events
and finishing second in four others.
Head coach Jack Harvey, hesitant
about his team's chances of success
before -the meet, said he felt satisfied
"I WAS MORE encouraged than
before," he said. "We knew this would
be a struggle, but we did well. There
were some nice highlights."
The brightest highlight of all was the
winning time was slow.
HARVEY SAID he was also pleased
with Scott Crawford. The sophomore
placed second in the long jump and
fourth in the high jump.
The Wolverines finished second in
three other events. Todd Steverson was
runner-up in the 600 yard run, and the
mile relay and the sprint medley relay
teams each finished second in their
Rick Swilley and Thomas Wilcher
placed third in their sprint events.
No team standings were kept yester-
day, but Eastern Michigan and Western
Michigan won nearly half of the events
over Louisville in Freedom Hall since
1976, lifted the Tigers to 13-1 overall and
3-1 in the conference. Louisville fell to 9-
6 and 2-2.
