FRIEDER DENIES COMPLACENCY
Cagers take act to OSU
By TIM MAKINEN
The idea of travelling to Ohio State is
not a pleasant one. Columbus is bleak
all year round, but in the winter, it is
almost uninhabitable.At the very worst
one could even encounter old Dr.
Strange-Hayes rummaging around the
back of his pick-up.
But the Michigan basketball team
must make the odyssey down to the
snake pit tonight to challenge the
Buckeyes. Having already wrapped up
the Big Ten championship, it is difficult
to predict just how fired up the
Wolverines will be going into the game.
MICHIGAN could be looking beyond
Ohio State to the NCAA tournament, or
at least thinking about Sunday's
nationally televised contest at Indiana
and the chance for some revenge on the
Hoosiers. Playing the Buckeyes, whom
the Wolverines downed 87-82 in the
second game of the season, does not
exhilarate anyone's senses.
For one thing the game will be played
at dreary St. John's Arena. It might be
snowing, raining, blustery, or the like.
And there's no telling what the weather
might be like outside the arena.
Moreover, Ohio State is fighting for
an NCAA tournament berth whereas
Michigan has already qualified for the
tourney. At 18-8 overall and 10-6 in the
Big Ten, the Buckeyes find themselves
in a three-way jam for second place in
the conference. A victory in at least
one, if not both, of their two remaining
games is essential if Ohio State is to
qualify for post-season play.
IT WOULD seem apparent, then that
tonight's contest means more to Ohio
State than to Michigan. Wolverine
coach Bill Frieder disagrees.
"We should have plenty of incen-
tive," said the fifth-year Michigan
mentor. "We've got a lot of things that
we can shoot for. One is more Big Ten
victories in a season than any other
Michigan team. We don't want to go in-
to the NCAA tournament with two
"In addition, we're fighting for a
number-one seed in one of the regions.
If we won both games this week, I can't
believe we wouldn't get one of those."
ADDED GUARD Antoine Joubert, "It's
challenging and I like challenges. It's
fun playing on the road because
everyone is against you. You have to
Joubert and Michigan should receive
their biggest challenges from the
Buckeye backcourt of Troy Taylor and
Ronnie Stokes. In the contest earlier
this season, the pair attempted with lit-
tle success to work the ball inside to 7-0
center Brad Sellers, a transfer from
Once unleashed, however, Taylor and
Stokes literally carried Ohio State back
from an 18-point deficit late in the
game to a three-point spread before
ultimately falling to the Blue by five
points. Last Saturday, Taylor also tied
his career best output with 25 markers
in the Buckeyes 78-77 victory over Min-
Sellers, who leads Ohio State in
scoring overall with a 16.4 average and
is tied with Taylor at 15.1 points per
game in the Big Ten, most likely will be
covered by Michigan's Butch Wade.
That matchup would leave Wolverine
Roy Tarpjey on Joe Concheck which
could create a problem if Conchek
draws Tarpley too far away from the
basket, where Tarpley's strongest.
The trip to Columbus could be of
special significance for Michigan
freshman Gary Grant. Many people at
Ohio State thought Grant was signed,
sealed and delivered to the Buckeyes
last spring, when the freshman came to
his senses and enrolled at Michigan. It
won't be surprising, then, if the
Buckeye faithful heckle Grant for his
decision to go to college instead of
spending four years at Ohio State.

The Case of "Generous Gee-Ma"~
RANDMA, a wealthy old widow, died on January 10, 1985. "Gee-Ma," as her grandchildren called her, lived
her last years with a nurse/companion, Mrs. Green. Gee-Ma was eccentric, secretive and clever, but was equally
warm, generous and loyal to her family. Her only son and daughter-in-law were deceased at the time of her death
and she had no surviving kin aside from her son's four grown children.
Gee-Ma died of natural causes, leaving an estate of eight million dollars. Gee-Ma also left four different Wills, all
hand-written and signed on the same day, January 5, 1985. Each Will left the entire eight million dollar estate to
one of the four grandchildren. ..
Send for "The Problem" - a description of each of the four grandchildren and each of the four Wills. Then
decide which WilLis valid, and write a ten minute argument to convince our judges that you're right. You
must choose one of the four Wills and you can't split the estate among the grandchildren. Base your decision
on justice, fairness, reason and common sense. You can't cite real cases of law or statutes relating to Wills,
but you can use any of the information contained in the profiles and the Wills which will work to your
advantage, as long as you don't create or change facts.
