'M' brings out best...
... with tourney on tap
You get a nice, clear view perched high atop the Big Ten:
" A pair of road wins this week would wrap up the best regular season in
the history of Michigan basketball. Not bad for a team that everybody
thought was one year away.
" Right now, it looks like the Wolverines will be headed to the Midwest
regional which means their first two games will be in either Houston or
Tulsa. The Tulsa site is Oral Roberts University. Should be some wild par-
tying going on.
" Speaking of the NCAAs, 64 teams are too many and these automatic bids'
have got to stop. On Monday night, Lehigh upset Bucknell to win the East
Coast Conference Tournament and qualify for the field of 64. Lehigh is 11-19
and plays in a league that features such national powers as Drexel and
Towson State. The Engineers, ranked 256th in the USA Today's computer
rankings, feature some outstanding physics majors like 6-1 sophomore Mike
Polaha and 6-6 forward Paul Wickman.
" The whole thing is getting ridiculous. Remember Youngstown State
Michigan beat the Penguins, 103-73, in November and that team came withini
two points of winning its conference tourney. Justice prevailed however, and
the Ohio Valley will be represented by the always-tough Middle Tennessee
St. Blue Raiders. There'll be some thrilling early round action when those
Raiders get on the court.
Iowa coach George Raveling put things in perspective yeserday at the Bid
Ten's weekly press conference. "You can't tell me," he said, "that the too
team in the Trans America Conference is as good as the seventh or eighth
place team in the Big Ten."
" Bill Frieder, who evened his lifetime conference record at 44-44 by
defeating Northwestern Saturday, is a shoo-in for Big Ten coach of the year
honors and will probably take the national award. His only competition will
come from St. John's head man Lou Carnesecca but Frieder has to be the
favorite.
" Around the country, people are still saying "Georgetown, St. John's and
who?" Very few non-midwesterners are familiar with Michigan's personnel
as evidenced by ESPN's Gayle Gardner who, in discussing candidates for
Big Ten MVP, mentioned Wolverine center Ray Tarpley.d
" Both Michigan and St. John's played their final home games on Saturday'
Fans of the second-ranked Redmen stook and cheered after the game until
seniors Chris Mullin and Bill Wennington came out for an encore. In Ann Ar-
bor, with about four minutes left, the third-rated Wolverines' fans unpluggea
their portable respirators and scurried on back to Grosse Pointe. It's trul&
inspiring for a team to clinch the championship.in front of a bunch of World
War I vets.
" Over its past 36 games, the Michigan basketball team is 32-4. Over the
same number of contests, the Wolverine football squad is 23-13. Football
school, huh?
" Fans who went away for Spring break missed out on a lot of laughs when
Northwestern came into town. The Wildcats actually put out one of their
stronger efforts of the season in losing by 21 but some of their players were
extremely entertaining. 7-0 grad student Colin Murray played 22 minute%
and grabbed zero rebounds. You would figure a guy who stands seven feet
tall would get at least one, even by accident.
" Leslie Rockymore went out in style, scoring 11 points in his final honm
game in a Michigan uniform. "He's one helluva kid and very special to me,
said Frieder, who started Rockymore against Northwestern. The Rock will
earn his degree in sports management and may be around to help out
Frieder with pre-season practices next year.
" Michigan State's Sam Vincent, a future NBA star who will lead the league
in scoring this year, thinks Michigan has a chance to do some damage in the
tournament. "The only thing that might hurt them is that they're such a
young squad," said the Spartans' leader. (Gary) Grant's only a freshmaru"
Antoine (Joubert) is a sophomore. They're very -young and kind of ine:
perienced whereas next year, I think they'll have a very good chance 1f
going all the way."
* The Wolverines have not won a game in Bloomington, Ind. since 196
They've never won in Assembly Hall. During the Olympic trials last April,
Indiana's Bobby Knight told then Michigan center Tim McCormick that ab
intra-squad scrimmage, held at IU's home arena, would be his only chance
to win a game in that building.
Sunday may be the time for Michigan to shut Bobby's big mouth.

By JEFF BERGIDA
Sports Illustrated, the Georgetown of
sports publishing, will run a feature on
the Big Ten champion Michigan
basketball team in its March 11 issue,
which will hit the newsstands this
weekend.
SI'sCurry Kirkpatrick, one of the
leading college hoops writers in the
nation, attended the Wolverines' home
victories over Wisconsin and North-
western last week and came up with a
piece entitled "The Judgment is In: It's
Michigan."
PART OF THE story deals with head
coach Bill Frieder and some of his
idiosyncracies. Kirkpatrick describes
the coach-of-the-year candidate as "a
recruitaholic who eats on the run."
The author contrasts Frieder's per-
sonality with that of his team saying,
"The explosive, colorful nature of this
Michigan team is belied by the man

who put it together. Coach Bill Frieder.
.. exudes all the charisma of your local
mortician."
Kirkpatrick goes on to detail
Frieder's background, from his days as
a business student at the University,
through his years at Flint Northern and
as an assistant to Johnny Orr at
Michigan.
Wolverine forward Rich Rellford is
quoted in the feature saying, "Freeds"
(Frieder's nickname) is one coach who
doesn't take the glory. He dresses
down. He doesn't wait till the last five
seconds to come out on the floor like
Knight and those others. He knows the
players are the game."
Now that Frieder has made SI, what
can he do for an encore? Maybe Al
McGuire will come to town for an inter-
view.
On second thought, let's settle for
Sports Illustrated.
